No, the ghost is new this year. Last year i had the jack in the box in that area. The headless horseman bit the dust the year before that.

That face in the jar is surprisingly effective!

I have the same issue with my wife but I usually talk her into watching one horror movie with me during the Halloween week. I don't know what movie to choose but I will probably let her choose. I do enjoy these movies on my own because I consider it my time for my hobby. I am hoping when my kids get older they will choose to watch some horror movies with their dad.

Ditto. Usually, is more of a crossover horror flick. Last year it was Prometheus and this year most likely WWZ or something like that and will do some catalog with my kids like IGOR or ParaNorman.

And for any n00bs here we have much respect for Aussie horror. Recommended titles include Wolf Creek, The Loved Ones, Rogue, Storm Warning, and Primal come to mind... I'm sure there are others.

Sick trailer dude!! Wow. Would LOVE to add this to this year's list. cool.gif

You guys who have wives and girlfriends and friends who will watch horror with you just dont realize how lucky you are. I have nobody, and at times I would love to watch these movies with someone!!!

I don't think I could be more ready. This past month has gone by with some serious quickness. Can't believe its October Eve already. You're right, I definitely take for granted the fact that my wife is as sick and twisted as I am when it comes to watching movies. She's been looking forward to October almost as much as me. wink.gif

Speaking of....she simply can't wait any longer to watch Lords of Salem (since its just been sitting in the rack begging to be watched for what seems like years now). So, I promised that it would be part of our kickoff double-feature tomorrow. Any others watching Lords tomorrow? Definitely still down for The Conjuring group watch though.

For those looking for movies to fill their lists, here's a link to horror on tv this week.

Cool video! I have seen Tokyo Gore Police, Ichi the Killer and of course Dead Alive, which is the best out of the ones I have seen.

Edit: I like the looks of The Taking trailer! The music and modulated voices are sinister!

No Lords for me, have to wait for NF to send it out so probably Thurs. or Fri. I may try and do a double feature tomorrow and check out Franks Army or something else in my Vudu list.

Agreed! I'd wager that with the time it takes for us to get some of the indy Aussie flicks next October would be a safer bet.

That is one cool haunted house theme!
post #6768 of 9812
Very cool indeed. Surprised that they allow folks to record their walk through the house though. The places that I have been to didn't allow you to do that. Not to mention, why would you want to be recording in the first place. Talk about missing out on the experience.

Exactly my thoughts, just nailed the "walk through this movie" for the most part. I would liked to have seen the bar empty into something more open or at least the illusion of open out doors like the yorkshire moors with fog and a wolf lurching out somewhere. That scene is one of the greatest moments of suspense and terror in film.

Awesome! I saw those on as well but fought the urge. It is so on tomorrow though!

We did start on our annual tradition of replacing the framed photos of loved ones with creepy old pictures. We still have more to do but it seems to grow a bit each year!

post #6775 of 9812
After a MST3K start (which was hilarious BTW), I thought Paranorman would make the perfect double feature...
Uhhhh, not so much.
Not funny or interesting....very much a movie directed exclusively at 10-12 year olds.

Tomorrow, my first look at the Jeepers Creepers 1&2 BDs.smile.gif

Horror Fest 2013!!!



I kicked off last night by watching the new 1. Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2013. Not a bad film, some decent gore but the Jessica Biel one is slightly better! Some decent blood/gore, Boobs and a bit of terror.


2 Chainsaw wielding Zombies

Good see other people started last night too!

2. Aliens 1986, Special edition BD This movie is a mixture of Action/horror/sci-fi and imo one of James Cameron's best piece of film making! Also the special edition or longer edition was the directors intent and it actually adds a bit more to the story. This sequel leaves off where the first one ended and once the action starts there is no letting up! Besides the main characters in the film, the set pieces and Aliens are the main attraction with the Queen being one of the best practical marionette puppets seen in a film. This just adds to the tension and terror to what the humans are up against. I highly recommend adding this to any BD collection and this movie holds up well even today.

5 Alien Queen Zombies

3, Creepers (aka Phenomena), Dario Argento 1985 FTV Steaming Amazon. I thought I have seen this movie and I was mistaken! With actors like Jennifer Connelly and Donald Pleasence how bad can it be?! Well I will say that this movie is definitely 80's all the way, first being presented in SD in a 4:3 format and with music from Motorhead and Iron Maiden, you are transported back in time. Like all Dario movies this film has some wonderful set pieces and some great camera work. This movie is a slow burn murder mystery film at first and the last part of the film is 100% Dario madness! Worth a watch but I wish this movie gets some sort of HD transfer like Susperia.

3.5 Maggot infested Zombies

4, Stormhouse, Dan Turner 2011 FTV Streaming Amazon HD. I started watching this movie at my sons school via my tablet and finished later at home. This movie is one of the those 'based on a true story' and on a military installation that got me interested in this film. Ghost/Entity movie all the way, that happens to take place on a British military base. This base has a captured entity and they have called in a civilian ghost whisperer to talk to it. Movie is kinda slow, until you know why the military is messing with the entity. Some ok gore but I wish the movie was not as dark so you can see a bit more of what is going on. This movie could've been better it the story was pieced together better.

2 Frere Jacques singing Zombies

5, Silent Hill 2006, Christophe Gans IFC, Ok this was my second time watching this movie spawned from the video game. Now if you are not familiar with this game the movie does a decent job staying true to the game. The setup is a mom is trying to find answers to why her adoptive daughter is drawn to a town called Silent Hill. This town is an old coal town that has a continuous coal fire burning below the town which makes this town creepier even before you seen any of the town folk. As the mom and accompanying female police officer look for the daughter, they run into some baddies, a ton of weird bugs, a dude with a huge sword and the crazy town folk! This movie has a good amount of gore, killings, baddies and the town itself is pretty damn scary! This is one of the 'best' video game to movie I have seen in this genre, imo even besting the Resident Evil series, which are fun but lack the sense of fear/dread of Silent Hill.


4 Contorted Zombies

6, The Thing, John Carpenter, 1982 BD. If I were to describe one horror movie that bests describe this genre, The Thing would be one of those top films! I have seen this umpteen times and now I live in a place that gets snow, it is really fun now to watch this film! This film starts off in an American Antarctic outpost where Norwegian people (via helicopter) are shooting at a dog. Then the American guys investigate wtf were those guys up to? This is a first domino to fall in a series of events that makes this movie Horror gold! Yes there is gore, a slimy space creature that morphs into whatever it engulfs, a question of 'who is it?' is on the minds of the characters etc...John Carpenter really did an awesome job of shooting this film and getting the actors to jell together in front of the camera. Rob Bottin's make up/ creature signature is definitely burned into your brain after you see this and Ennio Morricone did the score and it just adds to the tension. I know everyone knows Carpenter for Halloween but this movie is the other one that is on par with Halloween. This is a must buy for any HD horror junkie and the transfer is really good!

5 Morphing, slimy Zombies!

6. The Shining, Stanley Kubrick, 1980 BD. Well I feel like I am preaching to the choir so to speak about this movie. Just like Aliens, Psycho, Carrie this movie defines the Horror movie genre as well. I know people have issues with this move not being 100% to the Stephen King book but I say Kubrick brought his vision on what The Shining should feel to the audience. The book is creepy but I really don't know of any director back then that can do as well as Kubrick did (although I could be wrong). Well on to the movie and it starts kinda 'slow', but the music and majestic mountain views in my mind sets the tone in the beginning. We see Jack Torrance interviewing for a watchman job at a hotel, which is played spectacularly by Jack Nicholson. His wife Wendy (Shelly Duvall) is left at home to care for their son Danny. Through the interview at the hotel with Jack and a conversation with a Dr and wife, this solidifies the foundation of this physiological terror movie. I love Kubrick's work on 2001 and you see the perspective shots all the way through this movie and it works great! Also I believe this was the first film to use stedi-cam technology (Danny running through maze). I know most have seen this movie here but it is a real treat on BD!

What I find funny is when I mention The Shining to people that don't watch Horror movies (like us) they get really creeped out! Especially married women, when you tell them (or act it out) the part of Jack going after Wendy. I believe in the back of their minds they feel if they see that crazy eyed Jack stare from their husbands, they know they are doomed! Even today I get creeped out at the whole room 237 scene ha!


5 Here's Johnny Zombies!
7. V/H/S/2, multiple directors, 2013 First time viewing DVD. I enjoyed the first VHS and I know it got mixed reactions here. Fear not because this one is way better and it honestly surprised me! Just like the first VHS we have the setup of that home with the multiple tv's and VHS tapes. Then the four episodes play out, first on is Phase I Clinical Trials, A Ride in a Park, Safe Haven and Slumber Party Alien Abduction. I don't want to give much away because the movie is fairly new. There is something here for everyone and there is plenty of gore, suspense, scares, wtf and Boobies! There were even a couple of parts that made me jump out of my seat! My favorite episodes are Safe Haven and the Slumber Party Alien Abduction. I highly recommend this film for Halloween watching if you like the shaky cam/faux-documentary style film making. For a DVD the PQ/SQ was also good, SQ was crazy on the last one though!



4 Analogue Zombies!
8, Night of the Living Dead, George Romero, 1968 TCM HD. This is the Genesis movie that started it all! Most here have seen this movie and I have seen this multiple times, it is just fantastic in B/W! I like how (even back in 1968) the film isn't just about Zombies it is about how humans work/not work to survive, and how we are just as bad as the Zombies. TCM also had a fantastic HD presentation of this film and I haven't seen in BD to comment how better it would be. I love these classic Horror movies and they should be revisited around this time every year!


5 Zombies!
9, Grave Encounters, The Vicious Brothers 2010 First time viewing Amazon HD Streaming. I am probably going to watch The Blair Witch Project tonight so I decided to watch this movie. This movie is a mishmash of The Blair Witch/Paranormal Activity, cheesy paranormal reality shows and shaky cam faux-documentary. The setup is a film crew is filming an episode of Grave Encounters at an old Asylum. The beginning is kinda drawn out cheesy stuff (pokes fun at paranormal shows) but if does get better if you can get through this part. It is kind of a slow burn but slowly you start to see the horrifying result of staying in a haunted asylum through the eyes of their cameras. I wanted to oink this movie especially after watching VHS2 in the beginning but this film did make me jump twice, so that has to be worth something. A little blood, spooky ghost scares, creaking doors etc.


2.5 Asylum trapped Zombies

11, Interview with a Vampire, Neil Jordan 1994 HDNet dvr. Other than the OG vampire movies Nosferatu, Dracula et al. this modern take on vampires is one of my favorites and I wish more movies were made like this. With a mix of beauty, bloodlust and terrific looking sets/costumes, this film is a classic! Tom Cruise plays Lestat, a vampire looking for companionship and a lust for blood from women (men and rats too)in the 1790's, New Orleans. He finds Brad Pitt (Louis), turns home into a vampire, and hoping he will be his vampire pupil. Movie also features a young Kristen Dunst and Antonio Banderas. A decent amount of blood, boobs, and some decapitations. Vampire effects were done by the late Stan Winston!

4.5 Creole zombies!
12, DeepStar Six, 1989, Sean S Cunningham IFCHD, My creature feature last night was this late 80's ocean monster flick. I haven't seen this movie probably since the 90's and I was happy that IFC shown it in it's OAR. IIRC during this time there were a lot of ocean type movies releasing like this, Leviathan, The Abyss etc. It was pretty cool to go back in time and see pre CG effects with models and stop motion photography. This movie takes place in the deep ocean floor and a group of Navy contractors are setting up a nuclear missile 'sled' at the bottom of the ocean. Well things go awry when they use explosives to bury a cave below, thus letting out the prehistoric creature. This movie does take a while to get to the blood/gore, but it is worth it including an explosive decompression set piece.


3 Underwater Zombies

13, The Blair Witch Project, 1999, Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez IFCHD, I finally had time to watch this movie late last night. At the close of the 90's we had some good movies like the Matrix, Eye's Wide Shut, House on Haunted Hill remake and this movie The Blair Witch Project. This is the first in the found footage genre that actually 'tricked' most movie goers with clever marketing of the 3 young people lost/presumed killed in the woods. This movie stars 3 young college age kids doing/filming a documentary about a witch that resides in the forest of Maryland. As they continue their investigation, the myth is becoming too real for the 3 people walking and camping in the woods.

When I saw this with a group of friends back in 1999 it really scared us all, especially my friends who rarely partake in movies like this. We stayed up all night talking about what would've we done to get rescued or fight back lol!


4 Stick cracking Zombies
14 The Haunting, Robert Wise, 1963 First Time Viewing TCMHD, I went old school yesterday and watched the original The Haunting movie. This movie starts out by letting the audience know that tragedy and death occur in/around this mansion called Hill House. Years later a Doctor, along with four other people 'investigate' what is going on in this house. Some pretty cool scares but the director lets your imagination draw conclusions rather than elaborate set pieces. The house is creepy alone as the main character in this classic horror movie.


4 Zombies
15 Prince of Darkness, John Carpenter, 1987 DVD, I had to revisit this movie ever since the BD version was released, although I had the DVD in my movie library. This film is not as great as his past films like The Thing, Halloween and The Fog. But still fans of Carpenter can enjoy this movie. The setup is that an abandoned church contains a large vat of liquid Satan. A group of graduate students, professors and a priest soon find out the dark secrets of liquid. I like how Carpenter used actors from Big Trouble in Little China (Victor Wong) and rocker Alice Cooper in this movie.


3 Green Ooze Zombies.
16, The Thing, Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., 2011 BD, This is one movie that I really want to love and I was excited to even give this a second viewing. The Thing sets up as a prequel to the 1982 classic or what happened at the Norwegian camp before the 'dog' made it's way back to the American camp. The beginning starts off great, the effects are a great marriage between CGI/practical effects and the end is pretty good. The characters are great because most are Norwegian, the lead female character is good too. The bad is the middle of the whole film as the movie just kinda moves along (it seems like a rehash of the 1982 one) and I wouldn't be as hard on this movie if it wasn't tied to the 1982 version.


2.5 Morphing Zombies
17, The Midnight Meat Train, Ryuhei Kitamura, 2008 This is my second time viewing this movie and it was just as affective as the first time! I believe that this movie is from Clive Barkers book of Blood short stories. It starts out by a struggling (but good) photographer trying to make it big in NYC. He photographs a visceral happenings around the city when he comes across a guy in a suit that goes on the train late and works at a meat packing plant. He follows the guy to get the perfect shots, but unknowingly finds out what the meat packing guy is doing sinister things on a subway train to riders. This movie has lots of blood, cool butcher/killing tools/setpieces and a slight curve ball ending.


4 Subway riding Zombies

18, House of Thousand Corpses, Rob Zombie, 2003 IFCHD, I believe this movie does get better with multiple viewings and this is my favorite (so far) RZ movie. Most here have seen it so I will describe my best parts of the film. First the whole beginning is hilarious, between Capt. Spaulding saying "F*** me side Sally!" to him messing with the failed robbers and college kids. Of course I like 'Baby' in those chaps, but she was the most sinister (that laugh) in the beginning of this film. Second I loved the last part when we get to see Dr. Satan and that Red Juggernaut dude in the tunnel, some pretty cool make up and set design for that part of the movie. All in all this is 100% Rob Zombie and he slathers on all the Horror all the way up until the end.

3.5 Rabbit costume wearing Zombies

19 Blade Trinity, David S Goyer, 2004 EncoreHD. This was my second time watching this movie and I know it is way more of an action flick than a horror movie, but vampires in this film let it squeak in to the horror genre. The 3rd installment in the Blade series is a little long in the tooth but the action sequences and effects (let alone Jessica Biel) make it a worth while watch. Blade now has a team of vampire hunters which includes Whistler's daughter and they fight a group of vampires Hell bent on resurrecting the 'One' original vampire. I would opt for the original Blade (or part 2) movie if people have never seen a Blade movie.


2.5 Vampire Zombies

20, The Exorcist Special Edition, William Friedkin, 1973 DVD, I had some time this afternoon to myself so I dug out this classic from my binder. This is my second viewing of this edition of The Exorcist and first watch on my screen. The special edition has about 10 minutes of never before scenes that were restored to the original cut of the film. This version is the 'last nail in the coffin', and this film didn't really need it, but some of the additions were straight up creepy. Even the DVD version with the Dolby EX 5.1 is gritty, effective and it goes along with the great story telling. The Exorcist encompasses all what is fearful about horror movies and the subject matter. I still cannot believe this film was made in 1973 and it hits like a sledgehammer today.


5 Capt. Howdy Zombies

21, Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro, 2013 3DBD. Ok I am a bit bias because I have grown up with being a mecha/Japanese manga fan and I always thought how cool would it be to pilot one of those giant Mechs. The past Godzillas' were cool, Robot Jox was a joke ha, Cloverfield came close and then GDT stepped in and did it! I watched this in 3D and in 2D, if you have the capability 3D is the way to go on this film. One thing that stands out in this film is SCALE, everything is huge and it should be! Other than that what a fun ride and seeing your childhood dreams become 'reality'. PQ and SQ was superior and this was a 3D post conversion. The sets alone were awesome to look at it was seamless with the CGI. Monsters were very cool and all looked different/menacing! Worth the buy if you are into Robots and Monsters.

4.5 300FT Zombies

22, Jug Face, Chad Crawford Kinkle, 2013 First Time Viewing AmazonHD. Well I just watched my first stinker of this month, Jug Face. Basically a backwoods hill billy horror story that has a girl that wants to 'escape' from her weird community. This creature in a pit 'calls' to the community for sacrifices for whatever reason. Sean Young is in this movie and this film is pretty weak outside of 2 parts, but they are not worth mentioning. Film looks like a college project and probably should've been a short film.

.5 Hill Billy Zombie

23, Deep Rising, Stephen Sommers, 1998BD, I had time for two movies this afternoon and thankfully I was still in a mood for a creature feature. Deep Rising is 100% 90's action/horror flick, starts out with boat crew ferrying a group of pirates to intercept a cruise ship and rob it. When they arrive they find all of the people are not on the ship but something has stopped the ship and taken the people. The CGI is dated for 2013 but it isn't that bad for this presentation. Decent blood and digestive bodies throughout this film, oh and the film stars are Treat Williams and the saucyFamke Janssen, how bad can it be! Worth the buy on BD when it is on sale.

3 Deep Sea Tentacle Zombies

24, Freaks, Tod Browning, 1932 First Time ViewingTCMHD I went old school last night and watched this movie. I remember years ago when Bravo had their 100 most scary moments and they had this movie on the list. So finally I got to see it and it is basically a thriller/horror movie about a trapeze girl (Cleo) that befriends, but uses her charms on a sideshow very small guy named Hans. Meanwhile this chick is just using him for money, booze and jewelry. She is also messing around with a guy named Hercules (part of the sideshow also). Well the other sideshow people find out this Cleo is being mean and trying to kill Hans, they resort to revenge, sideshow style. What is very different about this film is that the sideshow actors are all 'real', as far as no practical effects used on them. I really don't think this movie will every get remade, although I could be wrong.


4.5 Sideshow Zombies

25, The Descent, Neil Marshall, 2005 This movie needs no introduction as many here has seen it. This movie has it all, great use of lighting, awesome creature effects, terrifying scenes, claustrophobic sets and some strong/attractive all female cast! What more does anyone need in a Horror movie these days! We need more movies like this!


4.5 Cave Dwelling Zombies

26, Halloween III Season of the Witch, Tommy Lee Wallace, 1982 AMCHD. I have a new fond liking for this film and I do believe it has a good cult following now. This movie when it came out did poorly because people expected another Michael Myers and they got this movie instead. I do respect the direction they were trying to go by having multiple Halloween horror stories of lore than the standard slasher movie. Halloween III has some pretty cool effects and a catchy commercial song that always puts a smile on my face when I here it. I just wish the story was a bit more solid and had a better direction, but the film is still decent to watch.


3 Clockwork Zombies

27, The Fly, David Cronenberg 1986 EncoreHD, I was looking for another Horror flick last night and found this gem in my DVR begging to get played! What could you say about this remake of a classic? Well I think David a hit a home run with this film and along with all the great 1986 film, this horror movie is a classic! Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum are perfect in this tale about science, love and the de-evolving of the human flesh. This movie has some awesome make up effects that still hold today and the story is top notch! I never look at a fly and how it lives the same anymore.


5 Teleporting Zombies

28, The Children, Tom Shankland, 2008 First Time ViewIFCHD This movie has a couple of things going for it that makes it terrifying and sinister. First the setting is an English country side during the Christmas Holiday. Second it is about children that contract a bacteria/illness that causes them to go psycho on the parents. Some really good 'accidents' happen to the parents that aren't really paying attention to what these children are doing, which makes sense during the Holiday festivities. Of course the parents struggle with what is going on and never come to terms with it till it is too late. My only gripe was that I watched this on IFC and maybe it was the way the film was edited plus the commercials made the film 'choppy'. I need to rent this and watch it with out interruptions to see if it flows better. All in all a good film to watch for October.

3.5 Pint Sized Zombies


29, Jacob's Ladder, Adrian Lyne, 1990 DVD, I was thumbing throw my movie library and decided to put this movie on. I haven't seen it year and it was begging for another viewing. I actually seen this movie theatrically and it left a profound mark on my brain. This movie is a physiological/horror and it has a really good pace in this movie. Tim Robbins and Elizabeth Pena are perfect in this movie, as Tim plays a Vietnam vet struggling to go on with life after the loss of his son. Some really good wtf parts, along with scary surprises that will keep genre lovers engage in this remarkable film.

4.5 Head Shaking Zombies

30 The Omen, Richard Donner, 1976EncoreHD, This is one of my favorite movies from this era of horror movies and it has an all star cast of Gregory Peck and director Richard Donner. This movie is about the anti-christ coming back to earth as an adoptive child named Damien. The child was adopted by a wealthy couple and things started to happen to people that came into contact with this child. The parents soon learn their kid is evil incarnate but realize too late to really do anything to stop the child from committing heinous acts done to those who stand in his way or plan. This movie has also some great set pieces that include a decapitation, in my mind one of the best shown in film. The soundtrack is filled with an ominous choir singing when things are about to happen, and finally the kid cast as Damien is the icing on the cake. Do not see the 2006 remake before seeing this classic!


5 Devil kid Zombies

31 Damien: The Omen II, Don Tyler, Mike Hodges, 1978AMCHD. Now that Damien is all grown up and now living with his adoptive parents, brother, Damien is 'learning' about his true identity and he has people looking out for him and his plan to rise to power. This movie should've had Richard Donner at the helm instead of being an executive producer because this film had some promising aspects, but really fall short of the original movie. But if you are a fan of the first one, then this one might interest you. More of the same in this film, but it also stars Lance Henrickson, who watches out for Damien. Some cool effects like the first movie with also some minor twists that most people will not expect


3 Devil Kid Zombies

32, Poltergeist, Tobe Hooper, 1982BD. I have a long relationship with this movie and it has been my favorite since 1982. I have owned this movie in LD, VHS, DVD and now BD and I will say this current format is my favorite as far as Pq/Sq goes. Ok with Spielberg with writing duties this film is a winner. Most here have seen this movie a lot but for me it is a nostalgic look at how my life was in suburbia in Southern CA, just like the Freeling family in the film. This is what makes this movie creepy for me the most and now that I have a daughter, that I wouldn't know what to do if some 'force' took her away. This film has it all, kid is talking to the tv, things start happening in the house, the entity takes the child, the parents enlist help, then the house fights back. The story telling is by far one of the best examples in the horror genre and imo never gets old. Off camera some crazy ish has happened to some of the actors/actresses that is down right crazy. What is more crazy and messed up is that MGM iirc has green lit the 'remake' of this film. I constantly tell myself is "why would anyone want that, when you have the OG one right here?!"


5 Suburban dwelling Zombies

33, The Conjuring, James Wan, 2013BD I will say I have been patiently waiting to watch this at home since i saw it in the theater back in August. I will not give the movie away since a lot of members will be renting/buying this movie to watch next week. James Wan hit a home run with this movie and i liked the 'old school' way he told this story that was based on true event from demonologist Ed and Lorainne Warren. A/V is top notch and the bass pressurized my room! This movie gave me goose bumps all the way till the credits were over. The ominous soundtrack is perfect and definitely gives the story it's atmosphere! This is one horror movie that should be sitting on all fans of this genres shelf!



5 Hangin' Ten Witch Zombies

34, 30 Days of Night, David Slade, 2007FoxMovieHD, This was my second time seeing this film since I have owned it on DVD and I dvr'd this sucker a couple of days ago because I wanted to see a HD version of this film. First off, why haven't I seen this movie more! It is survivor horror at it's best with mal formed Vampires! This movie must've been a sleeper back in 2007 because I never heard a lot of people talking about it! Gore/blood hounds should love this movie and the action is great in it too! Fit and finish of this movie adds to the good story line too! My favorite movie that starred Josh Harnett (sp?)


4 Deadly Vampire Zombies


35, Monsters University, Dan Scanlon, 2013 BD, This was my second time seeing this and finally I have something that my kids and I could watch together! This movie was very cool and I liked how they made 'homages' to Animal House through out Monsters University. No this doesn't have the heart warming story of Boo and the Sulley/Mike crew but this was a film about Mike being accepted as a future 'Scarer' and Sulley learning that his family name can only take him so far. So together (with other Frat brothers) they get through college and the Scare games working together. The PQ/SQ is phenomenal and I Disney hit a home run in that regard. If you have kids or just enjoy Pixar/Disney film, this is one to add to the collection.


4.25 Furry Monster Zombies


36, Red Dragon, Brett Ratner, 2002 IFCHD, This is one of those sleeper hits that premiered in the early 2000's and it is a great addition to the ManHunter, Silence of the Lambs movies. This film takes place before Clarice Starling and Buffalo Bill. It follows another FBI agent played by Edward Norton, who is the man that
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
and later works with him trying to catch a killer named The 'ToothFairy', played by Ralph Fiennes. This is the type of horror my wife likes and it truly is more of what a crazy killer could actually be in real life! I won't spoil anymore of the film but the cast is great, Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel and Ralph Fiennes that carry this story through every creepy, lustful and scary corner of a mad mans mind. Oh I forgot Phillip S, Hoffman has a small part in this too.
