In other news, high speed Internet has finally come out to the boonies where I live in the form of AT&T U-verse. People at work laugh when I tell them I'm on dial-up but I have to point out that a little over 40% of the country is. Looking forward to next week so I can get everything hooked up. Who knows, maybe do a little streaming, too.
Went to Blockbuster last night to go out with a bang. I was looking for one of the recommendations made here when I noticed the "4 for $20" blu-ray sales table. Picked-up four expensive blu-rays on my list for a song. Unfortunately, none were horror although I toyed with the idea of snatching up "Insidious." Kind of funny. Went from a month of horror to "Tangled" last night. Talk about a cinematic jolt. eek.gif

Dial-up AND Blockbuster? You aren't kidding about the boonies! biggrin.gif

American horror can be quite lame compared with Italian, British, Thai, Japanese, Korean, .... biggrin.gif

Bragging? Have you seen some of the titles listed here? tongue.gif

Some of my favorite movies this month were the foreign ones, but I've always been a sucker for foreign movies. I have both volumes of the Mario Bava Collection sets that were released several years ago.
I had a good find in the used DVD bin today: the William Castle Film collection. Some great cheesy horror gimmick films there!

+1 for tips. I try to get in a horror movie every week and often hard to pick one title over another and is nice to get recommendations or intelligence on titles. Here, you can start to gauge peoples tastes and bias instead of some anonymous review online somewhere.

I watch horror year round.

I never considered anyone bragging here. It felt like love of a film genre to me. It's also nice to not have the butthurt in here because User X likes gore and User Y likes ghosts. Here's to more civil Octobers and love of film and less asshattery.

Does anyone know what happened to Airboss? He was active for the first day or two and then vanished, like a virgin on prom night eek.gif

Great highlight list Bob! I don't know that I can do much of one for myself this month but I'd say Inbred was probably the high watermark for FTV. Attack of the Werewolves was best foreign language.

If memory serves me right, I saw where it was on sale a week or so ago. Maybe Wal-Mart. Great find!

*hee hee* Even my chief engineer didn't believe the story until I pulled it up. Really...40%.

On another note, I hope to get "Inbred" and watch it as soon as things slow down after Monday. After watching a lot of "horror-lite" movies with my daughter, I'm ready for some adreniline-rush scares. eek.gif

Where are you guys getting this? I thought the B locked version was the only one available? I didn't see it on amazon or in NF?

Believe it or not, its on (or was on at least when i watched it) YouTube, the whole movie was posted on YouTube and i watched it on my computer.

Dont know if the full version not broken up is still there, and while the person that posted it may have done it illegally, i dont think its illegal to watch something on YouTube.

I was wondering about him too. Has he posted on any other threads?

My last films I watched before Halloween was over were,

The Ninth Gate, A Roman Polanski film that stars Johnny Depp as a rare book buyer. He is hired to find a rare demonic book and he runs into trouble. I really liked the tempo of this film and the way the story is told. 3 Zombies

Final Destination 5, I really enjoyed the first one in the series but for people (like me) that like to see these 'accidents' unfold on people and the gory results, then this film is for you. I wish I seen this in 3D because I imagine the pop out would have been cool to see. 2.5 Zombies. First time view

The Theatre Bizarre, Anthology type of movie, kinda like Creepshow. I expected a better presentation knowing some big names involved in this film Tom Savini, David Gregory, Karim Hussain...Some of the stories have some really strong gore and others have a decent story, but weird ending wtf? Kinda of a mixed bag but I am sure most will find at least one story they like. My favorite story was Vision Stains but gory will go to Sweets story. 2 Zombies. First time view



Hopefully next year I can keep up with more movies this month but I tend to watch these types of films all year long, just like most of you guys here.biggrin.gif

Tonight I am going to watch Satan's Little Helper, first time view.

I heard it was on You Tube as well. A recent check showed it was gone. Oh well. rolleyes.gif

I just got DSL 3 years ago. We opted for a more rural first home and were just out of range of DSL. We moved into a less rural area that's further out of town but as DSL. I was lucky that my work kept me flush with 3g modems and I ran the network/firewall/etc at work so...yeah. Verizon 4g or similar will be last great hope of high speed in rural areas.

Some final thoughts on this year's list:

Best Movie (First-time viewing): A. I Saw the Devil B. The Loved Ones
Worst Movie (First-time viewing): Intruders
Biggest Surprise: Mother's Day
Biggest Disappointment: A. The Night of the Hunter B. Hellraiser
Best Gore: The Descent
Best Cinematography: A. I Saw the Devil B. The Shining
Scariest: A. The Strangers B. Lovely Molly
Best Sound EFX: A. Paranormal Activity 3 B. The Strangers
Best Overall: The Shining


It was tough to make decisions on this list as there were many that fit well in different areas. In some cases, it just seemed appropriate to add an honorable mention. Looking at my list as a whole, this was definitely my most enjoyable mix of movies for Horrorfest thus far. There were 19 first-time viewings and a couple more that were basically first watches because it had been so long since I've seen them. Even though it got a little stressful to try to keep up as I found myself neglecting other obligations, it was another great October thanks to some amazing horror and great participation from the folks in this thread. I'm sure many of us will remain active in this thread in the "off-season", so lets keep the recommendations going.....I've got a 2013 movie list to form. wink.gif

Brian, I think you're missing the main reason this thread was started in the first place. The thread title and first few pages explain it all. Bragging?? More like sharing.

Uh, I was kidding of course. And yes this thread will now be useful and a good place for people to post "finds" for us horror fans.
post #3676 of 9787
Here is my re-cap of the month. Many of my favs I have seen so often and tried to focus on first view titles that I could get.

Best Movie (First-time viewing): Cabin in the Woods. Sucker for a creature feature and I, surprisingly, liked the wink-ish tone of the movie. Played straight enough to care about the characters with an obvious ode to the genre.
Worst Movie (First-time viewing): Vampires Embrace. Uhg.
Biggest Surprise: Return of the Living dead, The Collector, The Loved Ones, Gravedancers
I have seen bits and pieces of ROTLD over the years but seeing it now, in relation to all these other movies, really illustrated how well it was made. Most would remember it as a campy effort but I think the writing is underappreciated due to the wacky nature of the movie. The Loved ones and Gravedancers were really well put together and easily could have been botched with a lesser effort.
Biggest Disappointment: Prometheus - This could have been epic but too many silly gaffs downgrade it to just a guilty pleasure.
Best Gore: The Collector (admittedly a weak gore month for me)
Best Cinematography: Halloween 1978. The shots of Michael Myers juxtaposed with idylic suburbia are chilling.
Scariest: Teeth. Nuff said.
Best Sound EFX: Cabin in the Woods and Prometheus
Best Overall: Prometheus, Return of the Living Dead

1- Jeepers Creepers 2001 – 3 1/2 Zombies. I am a sucker for a creature feature and while this is B movie-ish, there is enough creepy vibe in the first half and creeper action in the 2nd half to make for a fun flic.
2 - Area 407 2012 (first view) - 1 Zombie that has no legs or arms. Good setup and first act but when the action starts this falls flat.
3- Halloween 1978 - 4 Zombies. CLASSIC! Also, great bluray presentation really adds to the enjoyment for me.
4- The Day 2011 (first view) - 2 1/2 Zombies. Bleak, post apocalyptic flic with a little different twist on the “creature”.
5- Nosferatu 1922! (first view) - 3 Old School Zombies. Interesting to see how they did it in 1922.
6- American Werewolf in London 1981 - 3 1/2 Zombies. CLASSIC! Also, great bluray presentation really adds to the enjoyment for me.
7- The Loved Ones 2009 (first view) - 4 Zombies. Fun take on this genre.
8- TEETH 2007 - 3 Neutered Zombies. This movie cracks me up…and then it makes me cringe.
9- Black Christmas 2006 (first view) - 3 80's throwback Zombies. Fairly well done 80’s-esque slasher flic.
10- Touristas 2006 (first view) - 3 1/2 Zombies in Bikinis. Simple, well done flic. Why can’t more productions get it like this does?
11- Vampire's Embrace 1991 (first view) - 1/2 Twilight Vampire. Uhg.
12- The Collector 2009 (first view )- 3 1/2 Zombies. Well done. Like Touristas, everything was done properly.
13- Prometheus 2012 - 4 1/2 face hugger Zombies. Arguable the best scifi/horror in years…
14- Monster House 2006 - 3 Kiddy Zombies. I consider this a classic, kids scary movie.
15- Bloodrayne 1 2005 (first view) - 1 1/2 Ewe Bol Zombies. This was just crap. Not scary. Not fun. I love gals that kick butt, but very little butt kicking – or gum chewing for that matter.
16- Bloodrayne 2 2007 (first view) - 1 1/2 Ewe Bol Zombies. See above. What is the definition of crazy again?
17- Hotel Transylvania 2012 (first view) - 2 1/2 Kiddy Zombies. Pretty generic. 3d was ok.
18- Wrong Turn 4 2011 (first view) - 2 1/2 Inbred Zombies. Better than I thought it would be. The kids tried to fight and not a ton of face palms.
19- Forbidden World 1981 (first view) - 2 1/2 B Zombies. Quite a look back to a different time. B 80’s movie with the sensibilities of the early 70’s.
20- Prometheus 2012 - 4 1/2 face hugger Zombies. Even better the third time.
21- 49ers Vs. Giants NFL game - ZERO DOA Zombies. I never want to see this again.
22- The Cabin in the Woods 2012 (first view) - 4 Zombies. Fun flic with very good AV.
23- BAIT 2012 (first view) - 2 1/2 Aussie Zombies. Decent shark movie in a supermarket.
24- Penumbra 2011 (first view) - 2 1/2 hot Argentinian Zombies. Weird vibe to this and satisfying ending.
25- The Final Destination 2009 (first view) - 2 Zombies. Blah.
26- RABID 1977 (first view) - 1 1/2 Zombies. Not worth the wait on this one from what I heard about it as a kid.
27- Thirst 2009 (first view) - 3 Kinda Icky Zombies. Pretty well done Korean flic.
28- Army of Darkness - 4 Fun Zombies. FUN!
29- Ravenous 1999 (first view) 2 1/2 Zombies. This had kind of a weird vibe and a decent watch.
30- Halloween H20 1998 (first view) 2 Zombies. Was ok and fun to see Jamie Lee back and kicking butt at the end.
31- Scary or Die 2012 (first view) 1 1/2 Anthology Zombies. Meh.
32- The Wicker man 1973 (first view) 2 Hipster Zombies. This was funny. Not meant as a comedy though…
33- The Gravedancers 2006 (first view) 4 Zombies. This was well done. Not rocket science but everything was done well.
34- Cronos 1993 (first view) 2 Zombies. Funny to see an early Giullermo Del Toro movie.
35- The House of the Devil 2009 (first view) - 3 1/2 Lori Doppleganger Zombies. Well done flic but I could not get past how much the lead girl reminded me of what a young Lori from The Walking dead would look like.
36- Jeepers Creepers 2 2003 - 3 1/2 Creeper Zombies. Creature feature!
37- The Wicker Tree 2010 (first view) - 1 1/2 lame Zombies. This was pretty funny…sadly, not a comedy…
38- Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 2012 (fist view) - 3 1/2 historic Zombies. Also a sucker for revisionist historical horror. 
39- The Return of the Living Dead 1985 - 5 Linnea Quigly dancing Zombies. This had the best writing and tone of all the movies I saw this month. Everything was spot on.
40- Re-Animator 1985 - 3 glowing Zombies Not as good as I remembered but still a wacky flic.
41- Killer Clowns from Outer Space 1988 (first view) 3 1/2 KILLER CLOWNS Fun, nostalgic flic with more creepiness than you would think.
42- Pumpkinhead II 1994 (first view) 2 1/2 franchise killing Zombies. This was a hack job.

Lovely Molly and The Strangers are on my list to get in soon with all the positive word here.

12- The Collector 2009 (first view )- 3 1/2 Zombies. Well done. Like Touristas, everything was done properly.
13- Prometheus 2012 - 4 1/2 face hugger Zombies. Arguable the best scifi/horror in years…
14- Monster House 2006 - 3 Kiddy Zombies. I consider this a classic, kids scary movie.
15- Bloodrayne 1 2005 (first view) - 1 1/2 Ewe Bol Zombies. This was just crap. Not scary. Not fun. I love gals that kick butt, but very little butt kicking – or gum chewing for that matter.
16- Bloodrayne 2 2007 (first view) - 1 1/2 Ewe Bol Zombies. See above. What is the definition of crazy again?
17- Hotel Transylvania 2012 (first view) - 2 1/2 Kiddy Zombies. Pretty generic. 3d was ok.
18- Wrong Turn 4 2011 (first view) - 2 1/2 Inbred Zombies. Better than I thought it would be. The kids tried to fight and not a ton of face palms.
19- Forbidden World 1981 (first view) - 2 1/2 B Zombies. Quite a look back to a different time. B 80’s movie with the sensibilities of the early 70’s.
20- Prometheus 2012 - 4 1/2 face hugger Zombies. Even better the third time.
21- 49ers Vs. Giants NFL game - ZERO DOA Zombies. I never want to see this again.
22- The Cabin in the Woods 2012 (first view) - 4 Zombies. Fun flic with very good AV.
23- BAIT 2012 (first view) - 2 1/2 Aussie Zombies. Decent shark movie in a supermarket.
24- Penumbra 2011 (first view) - 2 1/2 hot Argentinian Zombies. Weird vibe to this and satisfying ending.
25- The Final Destination 2009 (first view) - 2 Zombies. Blah.
26- RABID 1977 (first view) - 1 1/2 Zombies. Not worth the wait on this one from what I heard about it as a kid.
27- Thirst 2009 (first view) - 3 Kinda Icky Zombies. Pretty well done Korean flic.
28- Army of Darkness - 4 Fun Zombies. FUN!
29- Ravenous 1999 (first view) 2 1/2 Zombies. This had kind of a weird vibe and a decent watch.
30- Halloween H20 1998 (first view) 2 Zombies. Was ok and fun to see Jamie Lee back and kicking butt at the end.
31- Scary or Die 2012 (first view) 1 1/2 Anthology Zombies. Meh.
32- The Wicker man 1973 (first view) 2 Hipster Zombies. This was funny. Not meant as a comedy though…
33- The Gravedancers 2006 (first view) 4 Zombies. This was well done. Not rocket science but everything was done well.
34- Cronos 1993 (first view) 2 Zombies. Funny to see an early Giullermo Del Toro movie.
35- The House of the Devil 2009 (first view) - 3 1/2 Lori Doppleganger Zombies. Well done flic but I could not get past how much the lead girl reminded me of what a young Lori from The Walking dead would look like.
36- Jeepers Creepers 2 2003 - 3 1/2 Creeper Zombies. Creature feature!
37- The Wicker Tree 2010 (first view) - 1 1/2 lame Zombies. This was pretty funny…sadly, not a comedy…
38- Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 2012 (fist view) - 3 1/2 historic Zombies. Also a sucker for revisionist historical horror. 
39- The Return of the Living Dead 1985 - 5 Linnea Quigly dancing Zombies. This had the best writing and tone of all the movies I saw this month. Everything was spot on.
40- Re-Animator 1985 - 3 glowing Zombies Not as good as I remembered but still a wacky flic.
41- Killer Clowns from Outer Space 1988 (first view) 3 1/2 KILLER CLOWNS Fun, nostalgic flic with more creepiness than you would think.
42- Pumpkinhead II 1994 (first view) 2 1/2 franchise killing Zombies. This was a hack job.

Impressive list sir. Like the rating system.

Lovely Molly may have fit better in the Most Disturbing category come to think of it. While The Strangers is flat out scary, Lovely Molly makes you feel anxious and uncomfortable in a different way. Either way, both highly recommended.

I didn't care for that and I normally like Femke.
Now Nov is here I guess it's on to the polls, Halo and Black Ops, and Trains, Planes, and Automobiles tongue.gif Wait, The Collector and Evil Dead are still sitting on my counter... can't just send them back to NF now can I!

I also like Femke but didn't really get into 100 Feet. It was a blind buy for me awhile back but maybe its time for a re-watch to see if I missed something. BTW, you definitely gotta check out The Collector. Pretty cool flick.

Tonight was Halloween in my hood and a big success! Easily the most trick or treaters in the 10 years we've been here. Very thankful for what we've got.

Having fun going back & looking back at everyone's lists now. You guys killed it this year!

I was surprised to find so many newer flicks that were actually decent. Exit Humanity, Lovely Molly, Innkeepers, Inbred, Livide, & Cockneys Vs. Zombies. That's almost a weeks worth of good horror right there. Hopefully 2013 shows up this many needles in the haystack. Sugar Hill & The Mutilator we top notch old-school viewings that I'd be happy to revisit in the future.

GoCaboNow, that was a great post. I am pitiful, dont have the patience to make one like that!!

We wound up with a dull Halloween, they cancelled a Halloween party in our condo building and we just spent a normal evening watching tv, couldnt watch horror as my wife has her damn phobia about horror movies, she even turns away from gorey scenes in tv shows like CSI, drives me nuts.

Being in a condo building for over 55-yr old people, no trick-or-treaters, so the month ended dull for me. But as i said in another post, i really enjoyed doing this again with you guys, super fun. I just wish i was able to watch more than 22 movies, i really wanted to watch some of my favorites that i didnt get to see like:

Grotesque
House of 1000 Corpses
Devil's Rejects
Silence of the Lambs
The Thing (Carpenter)
Alien/Aliens
etc.
post #3683 of 9787
Thanks guys!


Arhhg. Blockbuster online does not have Livide, Exit Humanity or Cockneys Vs Zombies.

No Inbred either, but it does show Inbred Redneck Vampires and Inbred Redneck Alien Abduction...cool.giftongue.gif

As I offered a few months back, I would be happy to put together a poll for Best New Horror of the Year if there is enough interest.
Anyone wanting to submit candidates can do so here or PM me.smile.gif

BTW, Cockneys Vs. Zombies is not released over here yet, but really looking forward to it.wink.gif

That would be sweet! I don't know what the release date criteria would be since we often view foreign movies that take longer to release here but in any case my votes in order of preference would be:

1. Inbred
2. Attack of the Werewolves
3. Lovely Molly

I have been thinking about that and have come to the conclusion that maybe it's just best to leave it to the discretion of members.
With the delays involved in video releases, foriegn releases, etc. I don't really know how to approach it other than whatever works for everyone here.wink.gif

In my book, it's Halloween 365 days of the year. Watch them, preferably tonight. Or you could watch all the horror that will unfold tonight on all the news channels. wink.gif

Ha, I'm actually going back and forth between Fox for election coverage and Halo 4... oh and two bottles of wine to either celebrate or soak my sorrows with the final election news.

Although I saw The Loved Ones last year it is newly released to to the US and I would place that in front of Inbred although it is a close one.
