Some slightly less crappy news... I haven't watched Skull Island yet (because I want to finish some mods on my headphones first), but I snuck a little peak at the video on the regular BD, and it looked pretty good.

The CG doesn't look totally convincing. But it looks like there are some nice visuals. And the image quality on the 2K edition seems pretty good (as some in the BD forum suggested).

Yeah, I saw Shin awhile ago. Don't remember too much. Lol. I posted my thoughts here. I suppose I could look it up. Instead I added to the disc to my queue for a refresher watch.

There's an anime Godzilla coming out that Netflix will be picking up.

Twenty thousand years in the future, the Earth is overrun with Godzilla and other kaiju.
Humans arrive, set to take back the planet from those monsters.

Yeah folks say it was more directed by S Spielberg than Tobe. I would say it was a 50/50 collaboration more than Spielberg directing it. It was a Spielberg production but there are plenty of Tobe moments and angles in the film.

I popped in Poltergeist today and relaxed on my bed. Good way to commemorate Tobes memory.

I read a post by James Gunn and he said Tobe loved movies period! And when James talked to Tobe, they brought up many movies but not one horror movie came up. He said Tobe was the nicest guy too.

Cancer is not a fun thing to deal with, I can relate to what you're going through. While you don't have to watch Prometheus to watch Alien Covenant it makes a nice double feature if you have the time.

Old Blood: Sam Rami. He doesn't do a lot of horror but when he does he nails it. 'Drag Me To Hell' is a prime example.
New Blood: Richard Raaphorst, known for 'Frankenstein's Army' so far.
Fede Alvarez. 'Evil Dead' remake and 'Don't Breathe'
Jordan Peele. So far his only horror film is 'Get Out' but the man knows his horror roots, honors them, and ready to come with films that might keep you awake at night. Very promising.

James Wan comes to mind for new blood. Sean Byrne as well. He's got two really badass flicks under his belt. The Loved Ones and Devil's Candy.

Wan is prolific and consistent and has cranked out a lot of my favorites.

I agree with your assessment as well. I'd add Eli Roth to the mix but he's yet to really knock it out of the park.

Do this as live action and you'll have ' Pacific Rim 3' Maybe not call it that, but you would have a concept for a kick ass Sci-Fi monster flick.

I'm hoping Kong Skull Island does exactly this. The end teaser pointed to it.

Watched It Comes at Night today. Pretty good psychological thriller. Ignore what you saw in the trailers because they market the movie as something it really isn't. Go in with a clear mind.

Heard the news about Tobe Hooper the other day and watched Poltergeist last night myself. Will be watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in October, I mostly have my picks finalized for that month (although a few things will probably change).

Hope everyone here is doing well and had a great summer, it has been a while! Awesome to see a lot of the familiar names still around here.

Hard to believe but we are now only a little over a month away from the beginning of October. As such, I've been planning what movies I hope to watch during the month and have been working on a draft list. As always, this could (and mostly likely will) change a little bit but the list below is how I'm hoping things will go. Most years I find that stuff gets added on short notice or sometimes I have to cancel or postpone something. Last year I tried to get a lot of "B" movies into my October and get a lot of it out of the way but this year I'm mostly going more mainstream. Here's my proposed list (FTV is First Time Viewing):


October 01 - The Entity (1982)
October 02 - The Curse of the Headless Horseman (1972) (FTV)
October 03 - The Battery (2012) (FTV)
October 04 - Blade (1998)
October 05 - Jaws (1975)
October 09 - Creepshow (1982)
October 10 - Audition (1999) (FTV)
October 11 - It Follows (2014) (FTV)
October 12 - They Live (1988) (FTV)
October 13 - Friday The 13th Part 2 (1981)
October 14 - Saturday The 14th (1981)
October 16 - Piranha (2010) (FTV)
October 17 - Piranha DD (2012) (FTV)
October 18 - V/H/S, V/H/S 2, V/H/S Viral mini marathon (all FTV)
October 19 - A Haunting In Salem (2011) (FTV)
October 23 - Cat in the Brain (1980) (FTV)
October 24 - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
October 25 - The Killer Snakes (1974) (FTV)
October 26 - Children of the Corn (1984)
October 27 - The VVitch (2015) (FTV)
October 28 - You're Next (2011) (FTV)
October 29 - Insidious Chapter 3 (2015) (FTV)
October 30 - All Hallow's Eve (2013) (FTV)
October 31 - All Hallow's Eve 2 (2015) (FTV)


During the day on October 31st, I will likely be tuned into the Turner Classic Movies channel for some old school horror and my planned movie will go ahead sometime after 9PM that night once things have settled down. As always, looking forward to it!

Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

The Haunted Palace (1963)
Horror Hotel/The City of the Dead (1960) - Internet Archive/MP4
Invaders from Mars (1986)

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! (1966) - VHS
Justice League Dark (2017, animated) - FTV
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) - FTV
The Kiss of the Vampire (1963)
Kong: Skull Island (2017) - FTV (though it may not be by October)
The Land That Time Forgot (1975)
Lifeforce (1985)
Marnie (1964)
The Name of the Rose (1986)
Night of the Living Dead (1968) - Internet Archive/MP4
The Nutty Professor (1963)
Pumpkinhead (1988)
The Quatermass TV series (1953-1959) - FTV - Internet Archive/MP4 (see the 3 posts here for more info)
Rawhead Rex (1986) - VHS
The Recall (2017) - FTV - dunno of this'll be on home vid in time
Salem's Lot (1979)
Shin Godzilla (2016) - FTV
Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970)
The Tomb of Ligeia (1964)
Twister (1996)
Underworld: Blood Wars (2016) - FTV
The Vampire Lovers (1970)
Visit to a Small Planet (1960) - VHS
War of the Worlds (2005)
Weird Science (1985)
The Wolf Man (1941)

I'm also goin mostly for what I consider "good stuff", including some homages to Hooper, Romero, Paxton, Lewis and West. But will also try to fit in a few more choice oldies from the IA and my (dwindling) VHS collection, including maybe an Elvira or two.

I'd like to add one or two more Romero flicks as well, in place of, or in addition to NOTLD, since I've seen that quite a few times over the years. And wouldn't mind throwing a couple more recent FTV horror flicks in as well, if anyone has suggestions. Crimson Peak and The VVitch were pretty good last year. But any good creature feature will do.

That looks like a fun list also and I have seen some of them but a lot of them I haven't. But that's the great thing about these sorts of month-long marathons, it's a great opportunity to see movies you haven't seen before. Many a time I've discovered unexpected hits this way, and even if some of them are turkeys, it's a good time all the same. My problem tends to be every October that I think I will have enough days in the month to get to all of the movies I want to but I end up being far short of time or the list of candidates is simply too huge (usually this is the case). It's all good though, this gives me a chance to get my horror movie fix in every month! And now that I subscribe to Shudder and they keep expanding their selection, that just adds to the possibilities. Gotta love that.

Very well said.

Fwiw, I enjoy seein what other people are watchin here more than what I'm watchin. One tries to contribute where one can though.

Shudder is totally worth the price for October alone. However, if you are a rabid consumer of the genre you'll burn through their selections pretty quickly. At least that's how I felt while using it for a year. Now I just get it for October or if I get bored. It's a great add on for Amazon Prime. Speaking of Prime they need to overhaul their interface, discovery there is terrible.

Always prepare your horror movie marathons in advance.
Not me. I prefer to face the chaos head on with only an axe.

I always have a list of what I want to watch made up ahead of time, but I never actually follow it.

They were confusing trailers, there were some trailers and some TV spots you never saw (I'm in the business that tests such things). We couldn't figure what it was. Some are thinking that the marketing was a mis-fire on this movie and kept people way from the theater.

I looked at it last year and found most of their movies I'd already seen. I may look this year. I did kinda tire of watching a horror movie every night so may not join the party this year. Horror is my favorite genre so I don't like to save a movie for October.

Same, I watch all year long. BUT I'll still not wimp out and leave the crew hanging.
