October fun: 31 days of Horror, Blood, Guts and Gore! (and zombies, too....) - Page 75

post #2221 of 9787
If I ever watch Cannibal Holocaust, it would have to be sans animal cruelty.

I forgot to mention that, on Halloween, a local radio station plays the old 1938 Orson Wells "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_War...radio_drama%29

I could see where it would have scared the pants off of some folks back then.

This was a different Halloween Horror Fest than I usually have. I wanted to watch movies that I haven't seen in a while. I went out of my way to not watch the usual suspects (Halloween, NOES, Friday the 13th, etc.). I've seen them all so many times, I need a break. It's pretty much a horrorfest around here all year anyway.

I have a big list of new ones to see, thanks to you guys. Maybe next year we can add a category of ones you'd actually buy to own, as opposed to just renting.

Thanks for all the reviews.

Now that I've had a chance to take it all in, a few thoughts.

Best Movie (First-time viewing): Black Christmas
Worst Movie (First-time viewing): Howling III
Biggest Surprise: Pumpkinhead
Biggest Disappointment: Shocker
Best Gore: Frontier(s)
Best Cinematography: Antichrist
Scariest: The Strangers/Paranormal Activity 1 & 2 (3-way tie)
Best Sound EFX: The Orphanage
Best Overall: House of 1000 Corpses/The House of the Devil (2-way tie)


I should also mention that my wife and I have been regular watchers of American Horror Story. This is a great show and I highly recommend it. After 5 episodes, it still has us on the edge of our seat. At this point, there are still alot of unknowns as it has been taking us off in many different directions. It's slated for 13 total episodes though (and even multiple seasons) so I'm sure some answers will begin to reveal themselves soon. Check it out if you haven't done so already.

That list says it all, what a bad year for horror. Again, i hope 2012 will be a lot more horrific.

I wouldn't say it was bad, but it certainly wasn't great. 2012 is looking good though.

I'm pretty sure I started a thread on Silent Night, Zombie Night not too long ago. Not bad. The other night I watched Rammbock: Berlin Undead on NF streaming with PS3. 1080p streaming was quite good. The movie was decent, too. Not really zombies (dead did not come back to life), more like "infected". Worth a watch.

Great Kenobi!!!!!!!

Pooper, Berlin Undead was one of my movies that i watched in October, made a blind buy of it, and was surprised at how much i liked it.

I eagerly await some good new horror movies in the theater.

Hey guys, i see HOSTEL III is coming out on dvd, i love the first two, anyone seen any reviews on this????

Have a great holiday season to all my "horrific" friends here!!!!

Thanx for that, I'll try to find out if NF has a disk....

EDIT: Yup, they have it on DVD.

Happy Holidays guys! Love that Santa pic.

Thought of you guys when I saw this. I've never heard of Krampus until this year but he sounds like something we need in the USA to stop kids from misbehaving!

Krampus is a mythical creature recognized in Alpine countries. According to legend, Krampus accompanies Saint Nicholas during the Christmas season, warning and punishing bad children, in contrast to St. Nicholas, who gives gifts to good children. When the Krampus finds a particularly naughty child, it stuffs the child in its sack and carries the frightened child away to its lair, presumably to devour for its Christmas dinner.



post #2239 of 9787
WOW, a great video.
Notice most of the kids were laughing and having a good time?

If only we had carried that festival across the waves 400 years back...

Well...my X-mas movie night turned out NOT how I imagined.

My first flick was Silent Night, Zombie Night.
I thought this would be great, as the marketing implied it was a Christmas Zombie Extravaganza celebrating the birth of our savior....
Unfortunately...it ain't.
There is almost NO Christmas element in the movie at all.
It is a talky, Foot-In-The-Door, Job Application for an aspiring filmmaker.
VERY limp stuff.
Soap Opera moments interrupted by stock zombie kills.
Skip it.....seriously, SKIP IT.

Next up was a Mystery Science Theater candidate entitled The Crater Lake Monster.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075888/
A recent BD release has this paired with Galaxina.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080771/

Although I didn't get to Galaxina, TCLM was hysterical on every level, and not to be missed by anyone who loves MST.
Heck, the wife and I played the part of Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot.
Don't know if it has ever received the "treatment" by the boys at MST, but it surely should have been.

No Christmas theme in SNZN? Huh? That was the only reason I was interested. I even imagined a zombified Santa like in the picture above tearing apart children's flesh.

Don't think I've seen the Crater Lake Monster but I love those cheesy movies. Adding it to my NF now.

Yesterday I got up early and checked out Silent Night, Deadly Night for the first time. I've always waited 'til the holiday to try and watch it but then chicken out feeling too guilty. Not this year! What a gem with tons of boobs and one of the most memorable kills ever. Plus they give you lots of background on the crazy Santa. A great 80's slasher!

Last night we watched Rare Exports. Some local Finnish folks capture the real Santa and he turns out to be evil. He whips the naughty kids, boils them, eats them etc. Anyone that didn't like Attack the Block would probably enjoy this one. This was a fun way to wrap up the holiday.

There was a Santa taken out near the opening of the movie, but that is about as far as the Christmas thing goes.

This is some seriously good stuff.
Pour yourself some of your favorite beverage and enjoy!

Even the title of the movie is MST material...
Did I mention the "Crater Lake" depicted in the movie is a reservior in California, not the famous and real Crater Lake National Park in Oregon?
I dunno, maybe they couldn't afford the gas to come to Oregon and settled on a shoot in central California.

Never seen it...top of my queue.

This has been in my NF queue for what seems like forever.

Did I miss something here fellas? Are we branching out and having a Christmas spin-off of our usual October rendezvous??

I have had Galaxina on HDDVD for quite some time now. Can't muster enough will power to stomach the whole thing though. I tried some time back, but gave in under the pressure after about 15 minutes.

TCLM is one that I haven't heard of, but if it got the MST treatment, I'm sure its hilarious. I subscribe to Home Theater mag and Michael J. Nelson does a monthly column in there that is normally quite entertaining. The guy has a way with words.

Watched last night.
Looks quite bad, not as good as TCLM, but a fun evening nonetheless.

Dorothy Stratten was an extraordinary beauty and deserved a better end.

Speaking of Dorothy Stratten, if you haven't seen "Star 80" you should check it out.

"A successful young model finds trouble when her obsessive manager-turned-husband becomes dangerously jealous. Based on the true story of 1980 Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten."


Eric Roberts gives an outstanding performance as Paul Snider; as does Mariel Hemingway as Dorothy Stratten.

I have and it is excellent.

This is her final movie:

She was only 20 years old when she was killed by that a$$hole.

Happened to be at Fry's today and they have this two pack bluray for $5.99. Of course I bought it and plan to display right next to Casablanca...
