I almost grabbed I spit on your grave 2 at RB today but didn't get anything.


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!

I should have joined this discussion last year since I made a point of watching a lot of horror movies in October 2012, but I'll definitely be posting what I watched this month at the end of the month. I have a text document on my computer which has a few thoughts about each movie that I will relay when the time comes. I will say that probably the best horror movie that I saw last October was The Descent which I would rate 4.25/5. My movie pick for Halloween night 2012 was The Legend of Hell House which I would rate 3/5. My Halloween night pick in 2011 was Return To House On Haunted Hill and in 2010 it was Rob Zombie's Halloween 2, both of which I thought were turkeys. I was especially disappointed about Halloween 2 because I really liked Rob Zombie's take on the original Halloween. Well, sometimes you have to sift through a lot of sand to find a few diamonds!

I didn't even know there was a I Spit On Your Grave 2. Cool.

I just finished watching The Devil's Rock on NF streaming. Good movie, 3/5. Two Allied soldiers stumble on Nazis trying to create super weapon via the occult.

Those are some good movies but the 1999 House on Haunted Hill remake is a better alternative to the second one and of course you always go for the OG Halloween!

Welcome to the Horror show!

Wow, that good? How would you compare it to the last one? I really liked the last one and just assumed this straight to disc release would be lesser copy for the most part.

7. Fright Night 2: New Blood. Farm this movie. It sucks, no pun intended. Even the craptastic POS remake with Colin Farrell comes off as a masterpiece compared to this. F(and last)TV .5 stars



This move has:

No redeeming qualities whatsoever.
post #7031 of 9789
8. Rosemary's Baby. It's been a long time since I've seen this so I thought I'd rewatch it. It's a very well constructed film although not as much scary as it is unsettling. Seems to remind me of Eyes Wide Shut and its angle on "The Illuminati" and secret societies. As a classic, it's worth your while to watch it, if only to see that the powers that be were more secretive just a few decades ago as opposed to how they just do spells at halftime shows nowadays. 3.5 stars



This movie has:

Tight ass suits.
Mia Farrow.
Creepy old neighbors.
Trippy 60's dream sequences.
Beyonce Illuminati level conspiracy.

If you are saying the CF remake is "craptastic," I think I better put this sequel at the ABSOLUTE top of my queue!tongue.gif

You've been warned. That remake was just OK. If the original is ten the remake is a 5. It had CG in all the wrong places. This sequel, OTOH, is bad in the not good way. Rather watch CNN or Fox News.

9. Tucker and Dale vs Evil. Really funny. Really gory. Really worth your time. Teens meet hillbillies in this awesome twist of a genre. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time and you're on your way in this movie. After Rosemary's Baby and the steaming pile of shirt Fright Night 2 I needed a laugh or twelve. 4 stars



This movie has:

Spectacular kills.
Comedy gold.
Did I mention spectacular kills?

I overlooked any bad CGI.
CF was hysterical....totally into the role, IMO.wink.gif

Yeah, this one was pretty good.
The wrong place at the wrong time and dumb preconceptions/prejudices is EXACTLY what this movie is about.biggrin.gif

David Tennant was nice as well. I was hoping for some of that in this sequel, sadly no.

Sure, the less MSM the better.

I thought it was more intense, from a "what was done" point of view, than the original and remake.

Just watched my next movie, THE DEAD. First time watch.

Unusual zombie movie, takes place in Africa. Gorgeous scenery, shot really well, this is a visual feast for the eyes.

The movie though for me didnt have much plot and was very slow moving. I think though that a lot of you guys would like it, as you sit there and wait for the next zombie to shock you.

Too bad its so slow moving as its such a beautiful movie to look at, this could have been great. As it is, i will rate it a 2.75.


OCTOBER 2013 MOVIES WATCHED (1-5 Zombie ratings):
01) TORTURE ROOM - 2 brainwashed Zombies
02) DEAD SNOW - 3.5 semi-intelligent Nazi Zombies
03) THE DEMENTED - 1 germ-infected Zombie
04) LIFEFORCE - 2.5 naked space Zombies
05) ZOMBIE ARMAGEDDON - 2.75 atomic Zombies
06) THE DEAD - 2.75 scenic african Zombies

5. Excision (first-time viewing)
Pauline, high school weirdo, has issues. Not only does she look like the offspring of Linda Hamilton (Terminator) and the Geico Caveman, she fantasizes about necrophilia and enjoys doing impromptu surgery on roadkill. Her mother (Traci Lords!) is a harpy who cannot understand her weird daughter no matter how hard she tries, especially when her other daughter (played by "Modern Family's" Ariel Winter) is so perfect (well, aside from her cystic fibrosis). The result is sort of like a horror sitcom if directed by David Lynch and David Cronenberg, but more fun than that would suggest. The interactions between Pauline and her more straightlaced schoolmates are very funny, although most of the acting is deliberately exaggerated. Look for cameos by Pink Flamingos director John Waters, B-horror mainstay Malcolm McDowell, and hearing impaired actress Marlee Matlin who just keeps looking better with age. 3 out of 5 stars.

Bob's October 2013 Horror Movie List
FTV denotes first time viewing
1. Some Guy Who Kills People (FTV)
2. Uzumaki (FTV)
3. The Pact (2011) (FTV)
4. Midnight Son (FTV)
5. Excision (FTV)

10. All the Boys Love Mandy Lane. Wife wanted to see this so it makes my second viewing. It's a middle of the road teen slasher flick. Nothing too grand and totally watchable. It has an afterschool special kind of vibe and stays grounded in reality. If you pick just one psycho teen girl go with The Loved Ones or Carrie. 2.5 stars



This movie has:

Dumb teenagers.
Pretty teenagers.
Some pretty dumb teenagers.
Angst.

11. American Mary. I finally got the wife to watch this. She enjoyed it. It's empowering in a sadistic way. At the heart it's a revenge movie cloaked in the weirdness of the extreme body modification crowd. Katharine Isabelle is simply superb and beautiful to boot. The twins that wrote and directed it have my attention and I'm curious what they do next. 4.5 stars



This movie has:

Vengeance on scumbags.
Eye candy.
Arm swapping.
Infected penis.

This one was high on my list for a while but I never bothered importing it. Now it is due out in theaters here I believe but I've read enough about it to know it's mediocre at best. I'll check it out eventually but am in no rush.

October 5th:

The Awakening - 1 1/2 anti-climatic spirit zombies
The Awakening featuring you know that chick who played Christian Bale's wife in The Prestige... yeah her. The movie does not feature a lap dance mad.gif The movie does feature cheap jump scares with a lackluster unnecessarily long build up delivering an even more lackluster big reveal. Nothing new or interesting about this film, if you are looking for a proper ghost story with an old orphanage see The Orphanage and call it good. 1 1/2 anti-climatic spirit zombies
post #7049 of 9789
I will follow suit because the pictures look better too!




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

wheew...I'm back in the game! wink.gif I watched 2 movies yesterday so I finally saw, for the first time, I saw The Devil... wow! Talk about intense stuff! My wife wanted to do me the favor of watching it with me... But it didn't last long lol! I was surprised to see Byung-hun Lee, whom I recently saw in R.E.D 2! Slightly different type of character! wink.gif I think I'll even buy it on Blu-ray (unfortunately I could only rent the dvd).

Next was Plague Town (2008), which at first might seem like another dumb-teens-lost-in-the-woods story, but it's much more than that. The dreadful, weird atmosphere makes for an engaging story with quite a few chilling scenes. And there's also the use of a song from Ladytron throughout the film that helps setting up the "uncomfortable" feeling. It's a small budget film, but the creativity involved largely makes up for it. This one's worth checking.



My oct. 2013 horror list:
1. The Lords Of Salem
2. I Spit On Your Grave (2010)
3. The Others
4. I Saw The Devil
5. Plague Town
