John Carpenter's The Thing
The Blair Witch Project
Holy smokes! All in one day? Did you leave the house? I'm jealous. :lol:
Same here! When I was on vacation I could only manage to watch four on one day. I tried to watch five movies once but passed out during the fifth Good job Gore Lunatic :banana:
Making a Drive out to Syracuse NY tonight Theatre is screening the following
Night of The Creeps
If every movie in there is 90 minutes, it would take 18 hours to watch all of them.
I know a few like White Zombie are only 75 minutes, but the rest all hover around that 90 minute range. So even if he started at 9AM, it still goes to 3AM. My FIVE movie marathon on Saturday went from 4PM to 2AM, with food breaks and smoke breaks (for my smoker friends).
Let's hear more details on this one
I'm trying to hit every demographic with my viewing today.
Re-Animator (Low budget gore romp)
Suspiria (Foreign classic)
John Carpenter's The Thing (creature feature)
Fright Night (Vampires)
I'll be watching Monster House tonight so that fits the 'Kiddie Horror' label. Now I need a zombie movie, a serial killer movie, a ghost movie and a modern horror movie.
I always plan my vaction time around Halloween every year so my first day of vaction was on Monday (the 30th). Started watching White Zombie right at 10:00 am and finished around 4:10 am or so with Halloween 5. Sure it spilled onto the 31st but it's still within a 24 hr. period . I admit I dosed off for like 15 mins. or so a couple of times (mostly during the Halloween films) but I didn't miss a lot parts. I've been planing an all out blitz of horror films on the last two days of October so this is something I wanted to do since the begining of October. Plus it's also good to know I don't have to go to work for two long well deserved weeks . 1076 minutes (+/- a minute or so) of horror bliss. My only regret? Watching ANOES 2. I forgot how much of a stinker that one was. I wish I replaced it with a Fulci or Argento film instead but I wanted to keep the whole "part 2" thing going so oh well. Anyway, I plan on trying the same thing today but I woke up a bit late and I also plan on drinking tonight so I probrably pass out watching any one of my top 3 films. So far I've watched Carnival Of Souls (theatrical ver.), Poltergeist, Carrie and currently watching The Howling....
I saw CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN and REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN on the big screen at the AFI the other night.CURSE was a bit faded but otherwise solid,REVENGE had good color but was a bit scratchy.Both were great.Then I saw YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN ,excellent print ! Today I watched THE WOODS as a rental (it's no MAY,but it's decent),then saw an advanced screening of TOURISTAS,which does not come out till December.Got free T-Shirts,coasters,shot glasses etc as givaways.This one is set in Brazil,it's kind of a medical version of HOSTEL,but with a better script and somewhat smarter characters.Worth a look,with some nasty violence.
I watched Phenomena on halloween night which was an odd choice maybe but cranked up the surround sound and it was enjoyable.
October 31st: HALLOWEEN 2, HALLOWEEN 3 AND H20. Tied up the evening with a great friend who made dinner and we watched TERROR TRAIN and THE HOWLING (which he really loved as he hadn't seen it before). I admit - the film was intriguing, WELL ACTED and flowed very well. That music is awesome as well. Near-perfect film marred by only two special effect sequences (lovemaking by the fire and the final transformation of a central character). Otherwise a GREAT film. That woodsy setting really rocks.
Before bed: HALLOWEEN!!!!! and HELL NIGHT. The classics of Compass International.
...and that's my October! Thanks for this thread - it was fun to visit every day all month !!!!! Until next year...
It wasn't a flawless production, but it was just what I was in the mood for that night so it worked out well. It's a shame they didn't make any more of them. It could've been a great show.
And for my last night of Halloween viewing, I watched...
The Return of Dr. X - Humphrey Bogart the Geeky Vampire rocks my world.
The Legend of Hell House

A perfect Halloween night's viewings
The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror (2 episodes on television: the one with "Fly vs. Fly" and then the one with the dolphins.) Not the best, which is why I'm not hunting down their roman numerals, but a good way to start.
Slither (first time viewing). Perfect film for Halloween. My friends cracked up--funny dialogue, great performances, and funny gross-out effects. Fun fun fun.
South Park: Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery - Another standout Halloween episode from South Park, and I'm not even that big of a fan of Korn. Hilarious. I love Nibblet--that "goddamn chicken from outer space!" Ha ha!
Great thread. Thanks to everyone for participating and sharing your thoughts.
I didn't watch any movies on Halloween. I must be slipping! I just didn't feel like it at all.
I managed to squeeze in Wrong Turn (2003) yesterday before I left for work. I watch that one every year so I once again enjoyed it.

Worst movie watched that I'd never seen: Live Feed: Unrated
Honourable mentions to: Rest Stop (2006)
Funniest movie watched: Feast (2006)
Most movies watched in one day: 7 on October 9th
Biggest let-down: Snakes On A Plane (2006) - I enjoyed it but it wasn't nearly as fun as I thought it would be.
Biggest pleasant surprise: Private Parts (1972)
My biggest disappointment: Having to work Halloween night.

Tried to watch NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD but got too tired. I've been seeing it in bits and pieces all month, so I guess I did manage to watch it sometime, just not all at once!
