Invisible monsters ?????

oink, this movie doesn't really get going until you're about 55 min. into it. If nothing else check out the scene at 1:01:30.

Will be viewing this one today.

Wow, day 8, and i watched CHAOS. Boy, this is some movie. Brutality at its utmost, with some surprises too. This one left me drained. Totally.

Thats 8 days of brutal movies, now i have 2 coming up that are a little different, it will nice to have a break. The next two I watch are two all-time classics, Silence of the Lambs and The Shining. It will be a welcome break from all these days of non-stop brutality (yes, Silence of the Lambs has some rough scenes, but its different than what i have been watching), torture, and nudity. Well, maybe its never welcome to take a break from nudity.

So far i have watched:
Hostel II
House of 1000 Corpses
Devils Rejects
The Hills Have Eyes
Captivity
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Imprint
Chaos

There must be a dozen movies you guys have watched that I now need to see. So many movies, so little time!

Last night I watched an old faithful:

Demons

A bunch of people are invited to watch a movie at an old theater and get locked in. All hell breaks loose when everyone starts turning into demons. Bava delivers some nice disgusting gore and pus filled moments. Every time the one chick pops up on the screen somebody in the room should yell "I'm Rick James bitch!" B

It is intense!

Chaos tagline: "The most brutal movie ever made"

So now I check BB online and it does show Suspiria. Strange. I must have typed it wrong........... but since I refuse to take responsibility for spelling errors, someone before me in this thread must have steered me in the wrong direction with a misspelling. Very long wait probably means that its out for me for this year's challenge.

After hearing the comments about Chaos, it sounds like a worthy replacement. Back to BB online..............

Edit: No dice at BB but I see that Netflix has it. Foiled again.

That is quite a list and I'd probably would have mixed something else in by now if it were me. You know you have been watching some f*d up movies when you reach for Silence of the Lambs to watch something lighter

My wife and little girl are going to visit her mom tonight and will be back Sunday so I have some time to watch some movies (and work on my house). Up for tonight I have The Entity (thanks Airboss) and Ravenous. I have tickets for Paranormal Activity for Sat... really looking forward to that one.

oink - I have to say I liked that there questions left to be answered at the end of Trick R Treat... left me with some things to think about. I'm going to pick up a copy for sure. I may have to check out Seventh Moon.
post #248 of 9776
Yeah Kenobi, i went a little overboard on heavy stuff on my lists, but i am gonna stick with them, got SOME different stuff coming up, then when i make a new list for the final 8 days, i will try to see some lighter stuff.

I am a little brutalitied-out!!!!!

I did see Zombieland in the theater, that was a hoot, and certainly lighter than the things on my list to watch at home.

Let me know about Paranormal Activity, i have heard its really good, but its not around here yet.

edit: Just saw the Paranormal Activity is opening in a theater right by me tomorrow, will probably go see it friday or saturday.

Best of the day! This Thai film takes the J-Horror long black hair' evil to a new level (it's sort of a spoof on that genre). Plenty of blood and gore although it takes a while for things to get going. Once it does it will keep you entertained to the end where you will be rewarded with a couple of nice twists.

The jaw scene' is exceptionally good; the shower scene' is exceptionally bad. Be sure to watch the credits roll for a little eye candy.

Highly Recommended!


Reallly enjoyed this strange Vengeful spirit movie. Problem I can't recommend it to my friends who watch "normal" horror. I have to admit it has some original deaths scenes in it for me. But as you said some deaths are very good, some very bad.

Highly Rcommended.

Also Got a chance to See Frostbitten. Meh not as good as dead snow, slow moving but once it got going, it go a whole lot better.
post #250 of 9776
If you get a chance a nice ghost movie I enjoyed on a blind rent. They Wait Movie was very spooky in parts and hokey in others. Not bad overall.


After living in Shanghai for three years, Americans Sarah (Jaime King) and Jason (Terry Chen) return home for a funeral. Soon after their arrival, a mysterious illness strikes their young son, Sam (Regan Oey). In their quest for answers, Sarah and Jason make a shocking discovery. Sam is in the grip of a malevolent spirit that will kill him if it isn't vanquished by the close of the Ghost Month festival -- an event that ends tomorrow at sunrise.

My tag for nasty parasites, viruses, bacteria, etc.
NONE of it is remotely scary to me.
I want real monsters in my horror movies, not something on a slide under a microscope.

Just goes to show, different strokes for different folks. I could not stand "Seventh Moon". I guess it was the close up shaky cam. That and the extremely dark picture (I had to double the brightness on my TV to see what was going on), lets not forget the out of focus shaky cam also. It was a chore to watch this movie and the ending was a complete let down for me. I didn't find anything scary or spooky in this movie (I didn't find "The Thaw" scary or spooky either).

I like movies where I can tell whats going on and not get car sick.

Oct 8th-

27. "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer" - "Based on the true life serial killer, Henry Lee Lucas. Henry likes to kill people, in different ways each time. Henry shares an apartment with Otis. When Otis' sister comes to stay, we see both sides of Henry; the "guy-next-door" and the serial killer. Low budget movie, with some graphic murder scenes."

Violent and disturbing film based on the true life serial killer, Henry Lee Lucas. Some intense, violent, graphic scenes, Not For People Who Do Not Like Intense Violent Graphic Scenes (i.e. Not for Everyone )

Highly Recommended

28. "Seventh Moon" - "Melissa and Yul, Americans honeymooning in China, come across the exotic 'Hungry Ghost' festival. When night falls, the couple end up in a remote village, and soon realize the legend is all too real. Plunged into an ancient custom they cannot comprehend, the couple must find a way to survive the night of the Seventh Moon."

"Seventh Moon" was very disappointing for me. I'm not a fan of the close-up shaky cam, out of focus close-up shaky cam or darkly lit, barely can see what's happening style of film making so I did not like this film a all. If you like that type of film making then this may be the movie for you.

29. "Farmhouse" - "Farmhouse is a psychological thriller set in the modern day mid-west. We follow a young couple as they leave their everyday lives behind and head out to a new beginning; starting over from scratch. After becoming stranded in an isolated Wine Vineyard in the middle of nowhere, the young couple is forced to face the secrets they're running from, all the while trying to escape the malicious intent of the Vineyard mysterious inhabitants."

Nothing new here, very slow, a couple of good scenes but overall boring. A couple of twists at the end, saw one of them coming early on and picked up on the last one 10 minutes or so before it was revealed.

Wait for it to be shown on Cable or Sat.

Best of the day "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer".

Tonight I watched The Entity and Suspiria. I had a hard time staying interested in The Entity, there was nothing really all that bad about it but I just wasn't drawn into the story.

Suspiria on the other hand was great! What an awesome movie! I felt the end was a bit anti-climatic but the rest was a work of art with a very cool audio track and some really fantastic sets. For a movie this old to stand the test of time and impress someone that had never seen it I think says a lot.

Day 9, Silence of the Lambs just finished. So far i have watched all my daily movies in the early morning, works out well for me. This one is an alltime classic that needs no review. It never gets old no matter how many times i see it.

Now if you will excuse me, i have to go to the store right away as i see i have run out of lotion for the basket.........

8. The Girl Next Door (2007) - First time viewing
Rough, rough, rough stuff. Very grim, and I have a pretty high tolerance for 'difficult' movies. Nothing supernatural, no jump-scares, just real human monsters and the evil that people are capable of. Frightening to think this was based on a true story. Amazing performance by Blanche Baker, who has bravely secured herself a place as one of cinema's worst villains.

2009 Horror Movie Marathon List:
1. The Golem
2. Onibaba
3. Fire in the Sky
4. Abbot & Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
5. Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer
6. Ju-On
7. The Fearless Vampire Killers
8. The Girl Next Door (2007)

I envy you for seeing this for the first time! This is one of my all-time favorite horror movies. Just thinking of some of the scenes in this movie can make my hair stand on end, but put a smile on my face too!
post #258 of 9776
Great Bob, your first viewing of The Girl Next Door. Boy, this is quite a movie when you see it for the first time and are really unfamiliar with everything that is going to happen.
post #259 of 9776
Saw "The Marsh" last night and was let down by so much potential. The synopsis sounded great and actors included Oscar-winning Forest Whitaker, but it fell on its face due to bad writing and a boring plot.

I'm moving along nicely (though I won't hit 31 movies) and hope to add a few to the list over the weekend.

Ha! oh boy

I'm so late to "The Girl Next Door" party and what a crazy shindig it must be, Must see this ASAP.

BTW- For anyone near Philly, Ritz @ the bourse (I believe) is showing Dead Alive @ midnight on 10/30 & 10/31. New 35mm print.

I'll try to recreate last night in as few words as possible. We are having our windows replaced right now so I took the sectional apart and moved it forward to make room for the workers. The sectional is now about 5 feet from the TV. I decided to sit dead-center on the tv in one of the reclining sections, with all the lights off to watch The Exorcist III......by myself.

Wow! What an experience!! I'm a little ashamed to admit that I successfully scared the s@#t out of myself......on several different occasions within the movie. My "official" recommendation will be posted sometime today, but this movie is one of my personal all-time scariest, even after seeing it several times in the past. Very highly recommended for the challenge!

Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed that one and will probably add it to my collection... can't believe I'd never seen it!

I totally understand! About five years ago, I had a foot injury and had to stay home from work. I was all alone in the house in our pitch-dark basement theater, watching The Exorcist III. After a while I thought "Maybe this wasn't such a good idea", not because the movie was bad, but because the movie was too scary! Then this scene comes on and I about crap my pants...

Tonight's movie: Bad Taste

Tonight's drink: Dogfish Head Santo Palo

Me and my buddy have been saving these for a special occasion. 12% alcohol and old skool Peter Jackson makes for a lot of laughs.

Apollo & Bob both of your stories sold me on Exorcist III. Bob yours sounds almost rear window-esque. Cool!

Agreed!!!! Although there are many scary parts, that one gives me the chills even as I type this!

Excellent thread. So many titles so little time.

Oct 9th-

30. "Rogue" - "An American journalist on assignment in the Australian outback encounters a man-eating crocodile.

The movie starts off with some beautiful scenes of Australian outback which are absolutely stunning. When the action starts, though, it never lets up. The rest of the movie should keep you on the edge of your seat."


This is great popcorn flix, very entertaining. Watched this last year but this year I watched the Blu Ray version, absoluting stunning cinematography!

Highly Recommended

31. "Drifter Henry Lee Lucas" - "Low budget production depicting the true story of serial killer Henry Lee Lucas to include the torture in his childhood years."

Poor acting, production, direction and soundtrack make this one a real dud! Not worth wasting your time on see "Henry: Protrait of a Serial Killer" instead.

32. "Masters of Horror - Sick Girl" - "A story about an evil bug with the ability to change people's behavior, a commentary on the dangers of moving into a relationship too quickly."

Not a bad episode but not the best either. If you like the Masters of Horrors series then check it out.

33. "Feast II Sloppy Seconds" - "The monsters have made it into a small neighboring town in the middle of nowhere and the locals have to band with the survivors of the bar' slaughter to figure out how to survive."

"Feast" was a great movie, sadly "Feast II" sucks! Lots of gore, violence, vomit and some nudity but not even that can save this POS. This movie is horrible, don't waste your time.

34. "Feast III The Happy Finish" - "The survivors are saved by the mysterious prophet, Shot Bus Gus, who seemingly has the ability to control the beasts. He leads them into the sewers as they travel to the big city. Along the way they get help from karate expert Jean-Claude Seagal and learn that the beasts originate from a place called "The Hive." Armed with this knowledge, they decide to fight back and destroy the beasts once and for all."

"Feast II" sucked! Amazingly "Feast III" sucks even more! Once again lots of gore, vomit, violence, some nudity and shaky cam. As with "Feast II" this movie is horrible, don't waste your time.

Best of the day "Rogue".

I watched The Girl Next Door and Audition today, I think I've had quite enough torture for today and will be dozing off tonight with a trip to Wally World with the Griswolds

The Girl Next Door was indeed a brutal and tough movie to watch but it was very well done and I suppose I enjoyed it as much as anyone could given the content. It captured the time period very well and was a stunning portray of evil dressed in innocence.

Audition I've seen before but watching and hearing it o bluray was even more immersive than before... gotta be the most psycho chick in a movie ever.
post #269 of 9776
Kenobi, that was 2 really heavy movies to watch back to back. You trying to be like me?

I gotta watch The Shining today, thats really light compared to what i have been watching. However, watching Jack Nicholson go crazy is one of the great joys in movie watching.

Saw Paranormal Activity in the theater yesterday afternoon, see the thread on it for my review.

I have Grace, Frostbitten, and Shaun of the Dead coming from NF today.
