Paging Airboss!

Inquiring minds want to know if you have Rotkäppchen: The Blood of Red Riding Hood in your pile of unwatched movies or if you've already seen it and if so what your thoughts were.

General K, sorry don't have that one, it just came out on DVD today (see info here).

"October 26, 2009 -- Just in time for Halloween, "Rotkäppchen: The Blood of Red Riding Hood" , the chilling and erotic epic will make its DVD debut on October 27, 2009 in a Special Unrated Edition available at Amazon.com. Packed with non-stop chills, thrills and erotic romance, director Harry Sparks' visionary adult fairy tale was received with overwhelming enthusiasm and audience acclaim at its red carpet premiere at the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in September."

It is available from Amazon.com for $15.49 but I think I'll wait and see if Netflix or Vudu picks this up. The budget on this was around $250,000 and from the previews that's evident.

Oct 26th

104. "The Fly (1958)" - "A scientist has a horrific accident when he tries to use his newly invented teleportation device."

Classic '50s horror with Vincent Price.

105. "The Fly II" - Several months after the death of Seth Brundle, his lover Veronica is giving birth to his son at Bartok Industries, the company that funded Brundle's experiments. The labor is very painful, and her accomplice Stathis Borans is dragged away from the procedure after he objects to her treatment. She eventually gives birth to a larval sac, causing her to go into shock and die. The larval sac is opened by the surgeons to reveal a seemingly normal human baby inside."

Ok horror/scifi but not as good as the original or the 1986 remake.

106. "Psycho (1989)" - A young female embezzler arrives at the Bates Motel which has terrible secrets of its own..."

A shot by shot remake of the Hitchcock classic that falls short in more ways than one.

Best of the Day - "The Fly"

Today was a wild one, BARRICADE. This movie is WAY over the top in terms of gore, brutality, and cannibalism. If you can sit thru many periods of bad hokey dialogue and wait for the incredible gore scenes that are interspersed throughout the whole movie, its worth it. Not the best for plot, but if you like ultimate gore, this movie delivers it.

Looking forward to your thoughts on Orphan. NotC on dvd, any reason you didn't go for the blu-ray?

28. Blue Sunshine (first-time viewing)
This movie preyed on the worst fears of the post-hippie generation. Remember that bad acid you did back in the late 60's? (I don't either, I was only a baby). Well, it comes back to haunt you 10 years later, making you lose your hair and turning you into a murderous maniac! Not really scary but a couple of disturbing scenes, the movie is more thriller than horror, but it's hard to take the movie as seriously as it seems to want us to.

2009 Horror Movie Marathon List:
1. The Golem
2. Onibaba
3. Fire in the Sky
4. Abbot & Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

wizzack, I saw "Orphan" in the theater and my thoughts on it are in the "Orpah" thread, looking forward to viewing it in my theater.

As for the NotC on DVD, brain f*rt on my part. I put that on pre-order as soon as it was availabe, only SD at the time. I thought I had changed it as soon as I heard the BD was being release but I guess I didn't. I was so excited it arrived I didn't stop to think. Your post reminded me that it was out on BD so I guess it will be tomorrow before I watch NothC (just ordered the BD overnight shipping, returning the SD version).

Thanks for kicking my brain into gear.

I just got my copy today too along with the new Pink Martini album... gotta love amazon prime! So here's a question... can the alternate ending be played seamless branching and if so is it superior to the theatrical? Hard to know without spoilers but it seems 50/50 for me with other movies that have alt endings.

Watched Boogeyman last night. On the slate for tonight are "Wolf" (thanks for the heads up Airboss) and "The Uninvited". After talking to my wife when I got home from Blockbuster, I figured out that I have seen The Uninvited twice already. Once by myself and since I thought it was pretty good, I watched it again so my wife could check it out. I'm not entirely sure why I chose it again (for the 3rd time) anyway, but I think it had something to do with the fact that it was available on Blu-Ray and I remembered enjoying it.

Of course I picked up the "Orphan" Blu-Ray today after months of anticipation. Unfortunately, I have to put it on hold because it's reserved for our little Saturday night Halloween gathering. I am really looking forward to your reviews once you guys get a chance to see it since I was slightly disappointed in the lack of participation in the "official" thread. I suppose the activity will pick up now that it was released on disc though.

Page will be updated tomorrow with my most recent viewings.

I'm very excited to watch it and we are saving it for Sat night as well.

Last night I watched Ghost Story (1981 with Fred Astaire, Melvyn Douglas, Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) it was a well done movie and I found it to be enjoyable but it just wasn't all that scary and really didn't have any creepy moments. Did have some excellent makeup work near the end though!

Tonight's schedule depends on my wife who has been working in her office a lot lately so I may be solo again in which case I will either head to Hollywood to rent something new or watch RAWHEAD REX!!!

31 plus one with a few days to go! I will get to Army of Darkness and a few others. I feel like kept up, even with having a full time job and my household duties. Some felt like work and will not be re-visited.

My personal faves in no order:

I liked Drag Me To Hell, suitably creepy throughout with the right amount of funny. I am so sick of the mac commercials though, I really hated seeing that guy.

Deadgirl, by far the most disturbing I watched.

Prince of Darkness, I've only seen it twice. Once when i was like 14, it got me on shock, and again this month, it got me again on its blend of sci fi type theories (I can understand this time around) with its religious leanings.

In The Company of Wolves, a pleasant surprise. This may be one of my favorite movies I've watched all year. I was always a fan of the Creepshow series and this falls into that vein albeit a series on just werewolves.

The Beast Must Die, pretty cool almost blacksploitation type man versus beast flick mixed with whodunit. Good soundtrack. I thought it had a grindhouse vibe to it.

Zombieland, was great fun in a great genre. Not a timeless classic like Night of the Living Dead but at least in the same caliber as Shaun of the Dead.

Agreed. It would be scary for it to have happened to me in real life.

107. "Return of the Living Dead: Necropolis" - "A group of teenagers who, in an attempt to rescue their friend from an evil corporation, end up releasing a horde of blood thirsty zombies."

A complete waste of time.

108. "Blue Sunshine" - At a party, someone goes insane and murders three women. Falsely accused of the brutal killings, Jerry is on the run. More bizarre killings continue with alarming frequency all over town. Trying to clear his name, Jerry discovers the shocking truth...people are losing their hair and turning into violent psychopaths and the connection may be some LSD all the murderers took a decade before."

Almost a complete waste of time. More funny than scary there were a couple of scenes that kept this from being a complete waste of time.

A couple of scenes that come to mind: the scene of the girl getting thrown in the fireplace and the scene with baldheaded Wendy. holding the knife, chasing the kids around the living room trying to stab them. Don't forget, there are 255 doses of 'Blue Sunshine' unaccounted for!


Best of the Day - *"Battlestar Galactica: The Plan"

*I know, it's not a horror movie but the two horror movies were just terrible and I hate to call either one of them "Best of the Day"!

You should check out "Teeth" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780622/ it would make a nice counterbalance for Deadgirl.

29. Opera (first-time viewing)
Another stylish entry from Argento. That's 3 Argentos this month so far! Opera shows the director at his most confident. The camera whizzes pleasingly around the opera house and other settings. This hits on all the usual Argento images and does it well, but also a lot of energy and even humor. My only complaint is the Netflix DVD I received was a terrible transfer.

Those were the two scenes that worked for me too! Other than that it was a bit of a laugher. I had a hard time taking the lead seriously...he looked like Sean Penn with Jamie' Farr's nose.

28th movie today, 23rd at home.

EVENT HORIZON. The only thing i like better than a horror movie is a good scifi movie, particularly when it involves space travel. This movie marries those two favorites of mine really well. The spaceship is a great visual creation, the movie is intense all the way, this is one super enjoyable movie, and i had a great time watching it.

So i have made it thru my first list of 13 dvds, then thru my second list of 10 more dvds. Plus i have seen 5 in the theater. Never thought i would do that well when i started this. Still have 3 days to go, now i have free picks for those 3 days. Next up, i will watch the dvds that just came from Amazon, Suspiria and Inferno, neither of which i have ever seen. All the previous dvd watches are movies that i have seen, it will be nice to see some new ones.

I will try to watch them thursday and friday, and that will leave saturday open for whatever i feel like for a nice finish. I am considering Alien, Deadgirl, Jason X, Street Trash, and few others. I might try to watch 2 on saturday, that would be great. Maybe Deadgirl (since i have never seen it and got it a week ago on dvd) and one of the others.

This continues to be great fun.

yankeeman - We must be o the same page again, I watched Event Horizon last night as well! I was really feeling the Scifi horror thing and that movie (save a few scenes) is just excellent. I also finished it in time to watch the Scream Awards on Spike

I wanted to break my dam TV for about 60% of the show! What group of retards picked the nominations? Especially for Best Horror Movie... seriously Drag Me To Hell? What a joke, there were so many better than that! And where is the category for best foreign horror? How the hell did Malin Akerman of Watchmen lose to the no talent chick from Transformers 2? Yes my list of red faced angry questions goes on and on but at least True Blood mopped up and Johnny Depp and Harrison Ford were way cool.


darthrsg - Teeth looks good man, I'm adding that to queue, thanks!

Of course... my wife was seriously disturbed by Session 9 and was asking me what enjoyment I could possibly get out of such a sick movie. I love all types of movies if they are well done but I had to explain that in detail and wash the taste out of her mouth by putting on Tommy Boy after it was over

Geez, your wife gets disturbed easy. Hey, but my wife is worse, she gets disturbed watching the gore on the CSI or Bones tv shows, I cant believe it! Therefore, she will NEVER watch a horror movie, EVER. I hate it.

I didnt think Session 9 was anything at all personally, but a lot of people think its really creepy. Its amazing how we all have different tastes, i had that on dvd and sold it, it was bland and blah to me.

As to Audition, its supposed to be a classic, but for me, to sit thru the whole movie just for the ending is not worth it.

But i am an oddball nutjob anyway!

The gore doesn't bother her too much, she just turns her head when it's bad. It's the movies that take the psychological route and disturb on mental and subconscience level, leaving more to the imagination and in essence allowing the viewer to "self scare"... Session 9 and The Orphanage both had an impact on her but she was also disturbed by The Descent and 30 Days of Night so I guess it's mixed

So blockbuster online screwed me again and has not so much as processed another movie to ship So I guess I'll be heading to Hollywood Video tonight to grab a couple movies. I've been diveating from my list but have been having a blast with this challenge this month. For anyone else making their way to the video store over the next few days I just want to say again that I highly recommend Pontypool... get it.
