6. The Devil Rides Out (1968)



Based on Dennis Wheatley's novel, Hammer's attempt at a serious film on the occult feels a bit forced at times, but delivers enough chills, thrills and spills (including a pretty swell car chase through the English countryside), and good pacing to keep things interesting. Another of my favorite lesser-known Hammer flicks.

7. The Two Towers (2002)



The Fellowship is fractured, and Middle Earth faces a mounting threat from both Saruman's Isengard in the west, and Mordor in the East. Will our merry band of hobbits be able to complete their various tasks in time, before all hope is lost? And what of Gandalf the Gray...?

This was the hardest Rings film for me to get through, mainly because there's so much Gollum time. But there are some pretty good orc scenes, battles, and the Ents, which are sort of fun. So it still gets a thumbs-up from me (though not as strong as the first and last films in the series).

8. The Oblong Box (1969)



Grim little Poe-inspired revenge story involving murder, theft, grave-robbery, mistaken identities, and other sordid business. This is one of only a few films where Chris Lee and Vincent Price share some screen time together. Both are sort of on cruise control in this, but there are enough interesting twists and turns in the plot, and performances by other good supporting players (esp. Alister Williamson as Sir Edward Markham) to hold one's attention until the final reveal. Some brief nudity.

Thanks for the tip on these. There are some pretty decent oldies (mostly on the schlocky side) in their Sci-Fi section as well...

9. The Babadook FTV
Started this on Saturday night but my friend fell asleep and was snoring and so I decided to finish the next day. I feel like my kid is pretty sane after watching this. In all honesty this struck a lot of nerves with me.

10. Creep FTV
Based on the recommendations here and the short run time I decided to follow up the end of the Babadook with this. I really love Mark Duplass and he is excellent here. The found footage did not bother me since the camera was relatively steady for most of the shots. I don't know that anything was particularly shocking here but the acting was solid. And

I used to be able to watch Netflix a lot when she went out, but now with her sick she is always home, the only times she goes out i am with her, so Netflix is almost a waste for me, our taste is SO different.

Finally back in the swing of things!!

Just watched PLANET TERROR.

Great movie. Totally disgusting, totally gross, totally horrific, great kills, done in the style of the classics of decades ago, this is not your typical zombie movie.

Really worth a watch, if you have seen it (which i would think most here have), you owe it to yourself to watch it again, this is really good!!!

2015 October Movies Watched
01- Inferno Of Torture - 2.5 topless tortured zombies
02- Sharknado - 4.0 L.A. laid-back shark-eating zombies
03- Sharknado II - 5.0 New York tough shark-eating zombies
04- Sharnkado III - 3.0 too familiar shark-eating zombies
05- Planet Terror - 4.5 disgusting, gross zombies

11. Rammbock: Berlin Undead (FTV)
In German with subtitles. A young man visits his ex-girlfriend's apartment hoping for one last chance at redemption, but gets caught up in a zombie outbreak instead. Shot fast and on a low budget, this little movie does more in 65 minutes than most feature horror films do in 120. Due to its smaller scale, Rammbock is not so much interested in impressing you with spectacle and effects as it is with providing tension and human dynamics in a crisis situation. The living find a weakness in the zombies that I have not seen done in another zombie film, and the film isn't afraid to pit the living against each other as well. If you're in a mood for a short zombie film and don't mind subtitles, you'll have a great time with Rammbock.

3.5 out of 5 stars.

VERY lame move by a filmmaker....unless it is a movie suffering from some severe limitations (as this one is).

What could have been a great little Home Invasion flick is really just a weak attempt by someone with limited skills in Cinematic Art.
Most of the characters act childishly with each other and bicker constantly (even while being attacked by a sadistic killer) and seem to possess a combined IQ of negative 4.

"Oinked" at 35 minutes.

FWIW, the BD has pretty good video.
This was a very good surprise for me. I am afraid you prematurely oinkelated.

20. Burying The Ex. FTV. Joe Dante directs this romantic comedy which is a lighthearted mix of Fatal Attraction and Shaun of the Dead. A horror fan is dating an overbearing lady who meets her doom and returns as part of a pact with the devil, to be together forever. The ex won't give up, hijinks ensue. The lovely Alexandra Daddariostars along with Ashley Greene. Anton Yelchin adds another weird flick to his list. If Idle Hands or the classic My Demon Lover are in your wheelhouse you should enjoy this.
I am liking the weird Anton Yelchin stuff, in addation to Ashley Green and the always hot AD. Definately on my list for this month.

22. The Nightmare Before Christmas. The kid loves it but I can take or leave it (Burton isn't my jam most of days of the week). It does put you in the holiday spirit though.

23. Monster vs Aliens aka Susan. Underrated classic in my opinion. Plenty of comedy and action in this B movie homage. The Halloween short films in the Dreamworks Spooky Collection are fabulous and perfect for the season as well as extending the original movie.
Susan is a favorite in my household as well.

Nice picks.
Those are 2 of the best I've seen all year, particularly Babadook.

You don't need a Smart TV to stream.
As long as a TV has HDMI, you can hook up any Media Player and you're good to go.

If so, do you know of a theater in the Portland area that has it?
I might be willing to make a trip up there on Friday...

I re-watched this a few years ago. When I was a teen, this one stood out as being downright terrifying as I can still recall how scared I was walking home from a friends house after watching it. Needless to say, when I re-visited it a few years ago, it was an epic disappointment. It was almost unwatchable.

IMDB simple synopsis: An FBI agent persuades a social worker, who is adept with a new experimental technology, to enter the mind of a comatose serial killer in order to learn where he has hidden his latest kidnap victim. Not an over abundance of gore but some sick scenes for sure and the movie feels like it moves at a perfect pace. Good stuff!

Didn't mind J-Lo in this, but I agree with you about how artistic and imaginative this movie is. Very well done. The Fall is equally as visual, but not as appealing to me with regard to subject matter.

Agree. Although I don't think that this is oink-worthy, I was mostly disappointed when I watched it a few Octobers ago.

Like you, I am a big fan.

I did a little comparo with the previous BD and there really is NO comparison.
Both video AND audio is significantly improved.

This movie is the last great film by Coppola...maybe his last great one ever.

IMO, it belongs in the library of all horror, or just film fans everywhere.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If I have the original and the remake sitting in front of me and I have to choose one to watch tonight. I'm going with the remake.

Sorry, not much help here. There are a couple average cineplexes near my house. Not state of the art, but sound and pic is solid enough for most kids movies we see as a family. When I want a better, louder, experience I go to a closeby Cinetopia. I saw the Hobbit in ATMOS there but currently their page does not list ATMOS, or HDR, as a feature.

A quick google under HDR cinemas, or Dolby Cinema, only shows a few theaters in total across the country. Crimson Peak may not be the blockbuster, tent pole type flic that would get HDR though. Cenetopia has it going in their lesser theater room in the beaverton location.

Since you watched half of Grindhouse (Planet Terror) why not go for the other half too, 'Deathproof'. no Halloween is complete without Rodriguez and Tarantino.

Thanks for the heads up! I do plan to watch this movie at some point so I will set my sound bar to Night Mode when I do, which is the most effective way of eliminating volume spikes.

A quick google under HDR cinemas, or Dolby Cinema, only shows a few theaters in total across the country. Crimson Peak may not be the blockbuster, tent pole type flic that would get HDR though. Cenetopia has it going in their lesser theater room in the beaverton location.
Hmmm, I need to do some Googling.
I haven't experienced either ATMOS or HDR yet (Salem doesn't have state of the art theaters).
Considering this is our Group Watch, I'm willing to do a little bit of traveling in the WV if necessary.

It is currently the Thanksgiving long weekend here in Canada and I went to a relative's place for a pretty nice dinner yesterday. When I got home later that night, I started to watch Nosferatu (from 1922) but found myself fizzling out about 20 minutes into the movie. I drifted in and out of consciousness throughout the movie but was impressed with what I did see so I decided to watch it again this morning after a good night's sleep. Honestly I'm not big into silent films, but this one was pretty good and I get the impression that it is ahead of most movies of the time. I liked the scenery and architecture. This movie wasn't necessarily scary but definitely creepy and interesting. And Max Schreck in this movie is unlike any other character I've seen in this sort of role! I think this a pretty decent classic horror flick (although not one that I would watch very often going forward) and I'm surprised that I never saw it before now. Overall, I give it 3.5 out of 5. Worthwhile in my books.

I'm getting our tix tomorrow for the 8pm showing at Studio Movie Grill. We are going with another couple, looking forward to it even if it is a bit cheesy. Production value and atmosphere should be enjoyable and Loki

I wouldn't count on it being "cheesy."
Other than Pacific Rim, GDT hasn't done much cheese IMO.

I'm making my gf drive so I'll be reporting lots

PR was good cheese but I have a low threshold for CG ghosts so hopefully it wont be overcooked. Maybe he will move on the PR 2 and Hellboy 3 now... pleeeeeease

If I lived in SoCal I'd be checking this out!

All doors are locked, monsters have 'free rein' and visitors have to sign a WAIVER to experience twisted mind of a suicidal college student. Is this the scariest haunted house in the world?k

Incorrect, sir....I soak them in vinegar and Epsom salts every night.
I do enjoy the Carolina vinegar based BBQ style. Why don't you go ahead and get a couple ribs ready for me.

Great movie. Totally disgusting, totally gross, totally horrific, great kills, done in the style of the classics of decades ago, this is not your typical zombie movie.

Really worth a watch, if you have seen it (which i would think most here have), you owe it to yourself to watch it again, this is really good!!!

2015 October Movies Watched
01- Inferno Of Torture - 2.5 topless tortured zombies
02- Sharknado - 4.0 L.A. laid-back shark-eating zombies
03- Sharknado II - 5.0 New York tough shark-eating zombies
04- Sharnkado III - 3.0 too familiar shark-eating zombies
05- Planet Terror - 4.5 disgusting, gross zombies
Love me some Planet Terror. IIRC, they have some good BBQ in it too.

It won't matter. You're too old to notice the difference.

IIRC last I heard the project has been indefinitely on hold. Basically one of those singing/dancing flicks are in PR2 slot. I do hope the studios comes back to their senses and realize not only PR made a boat load of cash (internationally) the film will be a lot better than some American Idolish movie that is for one demographic out there.

I got banned on Reddit for saying PR was a B movie.
