    Hey gang!!! It's that time again (well almost that time again) and as usual we'll be doing the horror movie tracking thingamajig. How's it work? Well I'm glad you asked! Here's how: Every year the people here on Horror Digital watch a crap load of horror-related movies/tv shows and then come to this thread to brag, write a review, post pics, or get ideas for what to watch next. Just do a post for each movie you watch for each day. It really is fun, especially if everyone joins in and gets in the spirit. It lasts all month and hopefully everyone will join in starting October 1st at 12 a.m. Sound like fun? Of course it does. Sound hard? Not at all. Just check out last year's thread to get an idea how it works. It's here.

    So just do it already. Join in or else all your horror movies will burst into flames. :cry: I won't feel sorry for you at all...ok maybe a little bit.

    I am set and ready to go - I may have to stream a few on my tablet since my job may be flying me out to Connecticut sometime in October on short notice for a week or more. But that is why I have a lot of movies on VUDU <:

    Yep. My first movie will once again be Silver Bullet. At the stroke of midnight on October first. I booked the 1st off so I can hit the ground running. Can't wait! I have a crap ton of other blu rays/dvds that I own that I've never watched and am going to try to get through as many as possible, plus maybe clear out some of the old Netflix queue.

    Sounds like a plan. I'm all stocked up for Oct 1st with the Halloween box set (plus the other releases necessary to make it complete), Prom Night blu ray, and Prom Night 2-4 on dvd. I plan to go through the Halloween set methodically, disc to disc watching/listening to everything.

    I honestly think that will take me through the whole month (hey, whatta ya want, I got a 4 month old and a wife who doesn't like horror movies!).

    I can't wait! I have been holding off watching all of the recent releases for next month!

    I started the season off with a double-header: The insane Italian "classic" BURIAL GROUND: NIGHTS OF TERROR and the recent THE QUIET ONES. Now, I don't have anything against "jump-scares" but jesusfuckingchrist! They were so frequent that it destroyed any enjoyment on my part. That's a shame because I was into the story and the actors seemed more likable than normal.

    I just watched Children of the corn (original) to get me in the fall mood...looking forward to watching plenty of horror movies real soon. I think this weekend will be the dilapidated carnival movie night: "Dark Ride" followed by "The Funhouse".

    Watched TCM this week, wife had never seen it. So I think we are going to choose movies she has never seen, and toss in a few classics.

    UPDATE 10/17

    First week / weekend of October:

    Tusk: Full disclosure: I am not a fan of Kevin Smith’s films. I haven’t seen all of them, but of the few I have, I’ve noticed a pattern. No matter how good most of the film is, he always injects some extreme vulgarity that is so nasty, it’s distracting and detrimental to the whole experience. With that out of the way, I will say that I enjoyed Tusk. Just as Michael Bay did earlier this year with Transformers: AoE, Smith has reigned in some of his excesses. I don’t know if this is his best film, but it’s my favorite of his. Justin Long and Michael Parks give good performances. It moves back and forth from creepy horror to absurdist humor, but just go with it. You will believe that a man can become a walrus! (The rubber suit is awesome; creepy, hokey, and sad all at once.)

    Ghostbusters: This was supposed to be a one-week limited engagement in September for its 30th anniversary (has it really been that long?), but it played locally for several weeks. This is an absolute classic supernatural comedy FX blockbuster. It was a riot when it first came out, and it holds up well today. From the big FX scenes, to the funny character moments, it all works. Followed by a disappointing sequel, and currently scheduled for a gimmicky all-girl reboot.

    The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976): For many years, that hooded mask stared at me from video store shelves. I’ve always wanted to see it, and I picked up that clamshell VHS box many times, but for whatever reason, I just never got around to renting it. So shortly after it showed up on Netflix, I queued it up. This is a pretty good true-crime horror / thriller shot in semi-documentary style. It has good period atmosphere, but some inept cop humor (perhaps borrowed from The Last House on the Left) that doesn’t work. I’m interested in the Shout! Factory Blu-ray now, and that’s a compliment. There is also a sequel / remake coming out: http://youtu.be/iFnQ250vdAg .

    Dracula: The Dark Prince: A solid TV movie from the director of the abysmal Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. This tells the fact-based story of Romania’s Vlad the Impaler, the real-life monarch who inspired Dracula. He’s infamous for his cruelty, but regarded as a hero by his people for standing against the invading Turks. This is a bit of a political / conspiracy thriller, as Vlad’s methods bring him into conflict with both the Church and the Nobility. While the low budget definitely shows, I found this intriguing and well-acted when it debuted, and it holds up fairly well. I hope there’s a 16:9 version that eventually makes its way to Blu-ray. Also works well as a companion piece to this year’s Dracula Untold.

    Paranorman: Norman, a boy who can see and talk to dead people, saves his small town from a witch’s curse in this delightful animation from the creepy cats at Laika (makers of Coraline and this year’s Boxtrolls). A terrific Halloween pick for kids and families, with great-looking stop-motion animation, and old-school horror references for fans. I enjoyed this even more than when I first saw it in theaters, as there is just so much atmosphere and detail to drink in.

    UPDATE 10/19

    Second week / weekend of October:

    The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season: This season is cleanly divided into two parts: Life in the prison, and life on the road after the prison. After a viral outbreak, the season peaks early with the return of the Governor. Then the survivors are scattered; they meet new enemies and new allies, and march towards an uncertain fate at the mysterious Terminus, the end of the line. When this season originally aired, I thought the second half was meandering. This time around, I better appreciated the variety and character work. IMO, still the best show on TV. I wish the relevant Talking Dead episodes would be included in the Blu-ray season sets.

    [​IMG]

    UPDATE 10/23

    Third week of October:

    Dracula Untold: A supernatural action film focusing on Dracula’s origins as Vlad the Impaler, Prince of Romania. I was legitimately excited for this. When’s the last time we got to see a new legit Dracula movie in theaters at Halloween? I’m glad to say, I liked it a lot. I liked all the actors, and the FX are great. It’s played straight, not humorous like the Brendan Fraser Mummy movies. Two things I didn’t like: It feels short, like it was edited down from a longer cut (which will hopefully be on the Blu-ray). Also, I didn’t like the ending. No spoilers, but it felt tacked on for the sake of setting up the new Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe.

    Annabelle: The Conjuring prequel focusing on the possessed doll. The period setting is well realized, as this looks and feels much like a 1970s supernatural thriller. It’s done in an almost documentary style, and it feels kind of flat. For something that clearly references Rosemary’s Baby, it could have used a bit more style. Effective, but fairly tame. Why was this rated R? I like that it’s played straight; I prefer that to jokey / ironic horror. I just think that if you’re going to (maybe) kill a priest in a ‘70s-style movie, you should go all-out and earn that R, even if for only one scene. Overall, I liked it though.

    The Boogens: Attempts to re-open a mine are derailed when blasting releases subterranean creatures that prey on the townsfolk. I discovered this movie a few years ago when peeps on this board got excited about it being shown on TCM. Thanks! I like the late ‘70s / early ‘80s feel. The characters are likable, which is often overlooked, but goes a long way in a horror movie. The dog is adorable! I really like the creatures as well; rubber monsters that are mean but kind of cute. Like evil Pokémon. Yeah, I said that. :evil:

    [​IMG]

    UPDATE 10/27

    Third weekend of October:

    The Purge: Anarchy: The Purge was one of last year’s worst movies. So despite looking forward to this one since the first trailer dropped, I only just caught it at the dollar show. Despite still being sold as horror, this is more of a gritty dystopian action film. This is a much stronger film than the first; the world is opened up, showing many different elements of the lawless night. Mercenaries! Martyrs! Rebels! Canned hunts for rich douchebags! Despite some stupidity, I enjoyed it. Looking forward to future installments.

    Monster House: Pretty good family Halloween flick. It’s kind of an ‘80s throwback in that the kids who know the score have to team up and get things done, while all the adults are clueless. The CG animation looks a bit dated. This is one of those Robert Zemekis joints that is supposed to be realistic, not stylized. It’s fun, it’s got some laughs, and the monster house uprooting itself and rampaging through the neighborhood is pretty neat.

    Fourth week of October:

    I finally opened up Halloween: The Complete Collection 15-disc LE Blu-ray box set last weekend. I really like the sturdy box and the black cases w/ original artwork. The box is in great shape, none of the cases are cracked, no floaters, no “cold sore” Michael. I immediately added in the 35th Anniversary Edition booklet, and swapped out the mislabeled RZH1. My H4 replacement is on order. Despite not liking the fragility of the eco-cases, I will keep them for lack of suitable replacements, and maybe add some adhesive hubs for additional discs. On to the movies….

    Halloween (1978): There's nothing new to say about this one that hasn't already been said. It's quite possibly the single most influential horror film ever made. Many slashers followed in its wake, but most chose to concentrate on gore rather than try to replicate the visual artistry and suspense of this classic. Everything about it is iconic: The silent unstoppable masked killer, the best final girl, the instantly recognizable music. Last year’s 35th Anniversary Edition had a great new transfer, color-corrected and showing more detail than ever before. This version is the same, but with the true original mono sound. While I like the 7.1 remix, it was good to go back this year.

    Halloween II (1981): Though not quite as good as the original, this is one of my favorite slashers. It has some of the same style as the first film, but the wider color palette and the electronic version of the familiar music themes give it its own unique feel as well. It also has a mean-spiritedness to it that contrasts well with the first film and adds to its appeal (without getting really nasty like the Rob Zombie entries). This set also includes the TV version, which is hilarious with all of its awkwardly re-looped dialogue, disappearing characters, clumsy editing, and alternate ending.

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch: The Myers-less "black sheep" of the Halloween series is actually a great horror movie in its own right. It's a combination supernatural / mystery / techno-thriller with a great holiday feel to it (despite being set in sunny California). Tom Atkins is The Man here. In his panning of the film, the late great Roger Ebert described lead actress Stacey Nelkin as an appealing young actress deserving of better roles. I agree wholeheartedly with the first part, but she does well here too. It's good to see this movie move out of Michael's long shadow in recent years and gain a following of its own.

    Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers: My favorite Myers sequel. A true return to form that combines the original’s emphasis on suspense with a few well-executed gory bits to good overall effect. Michael’s niece Jamie and her adopted big sister Rachel are genuinely likable and sympathetic leads. With one of the best twist endings ever, this really should have been the end of the series, at least until H20. Alas, that was not to be….

    Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers: This sequel has a strong visual style and a couple of really good sequences. It has some weak points, such as killing Rachel too soon and replacing her with a goofy surrogate, the worst Keystone Cops since The Last House on the Left, and a pretty big continuity blunder in making the Myers house a huge gothic mansion. On top of that, it also has a couple of WTF elements like the Man in Black, and Michael’s yearlong sleepover at Pirate Cove. And through it all, Loomis just keeps getting crazier and crazier. All in all, one of the weaker series entries.

    Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (Theatrical Version): The worst of the series. A sad and depressing end for Jamie Lloyd, a totally unsatisfying reveal of the Man in Black (built up as a badass in H5, he’s now just some old doctor?), unlikable characters, and worst of all, Michael Myers is now some kind of Druid assassin?! Was his mask a Silver Shamrock product all along? Was the cult trying to clone him in that basement, and is he the father of Jamie’s baby? Ick! Instead of Loomis, it's this movie that should have died unseen in the dark.

    UPDATE 10/30

    Fourth weekend of October:

    Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers (Producer’s Cut): *Spoilers!* This holy grail of horror is such a big deal…why? They should have just slapped the alternate ending on the previous DVD / BD releases and called it a day. I actually prefer the theatrical version; it has a faster pace, and with a movie this bad, the sooner it’s over the better. The attempts to echo the first film are obvious and lame: The studious girl is having book trouble! Tommy Doyle makes a kid drop his pumpkin! Clever! Two big changes for the worse in this version are having Jamie survive her farm encounter w/ Michael, only to be unceremoniously executed by the MiB without ever regaining consciousness, and showing that Michael is indeed Jamie’s baby daddy. As that scene started, my head dropped in shame at what the brainless idiots who made this movie did to one of the great horror characters, the modern boogeyman, Michael Myers. People complain about Rob Zombie de-mystifying the character? I dare anyone to look at Myers standing at the ridiculous altar at the end, awaiting orders from the MiB, and say that’s any better than Hulking Hillbilly Michael. This movie, in either form, is atrocious.

    Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later: After the abysmal Curse of the sixth film tanked the series, H20 reboots it by getting back to basics. Ignoring all the Thorn nonsense, this entry has Michael stalking his sister Laurie once again. The in-jokes and references are well played, especially the inclusion of Janet Leigh, Psycho’s star victim and Jamie Lee Curtis’ mom. The overall Scream vibe may put off some viewers, but the film’s biggest downfall for me is Michael himself. He just isn’t the least bit scary in this installment. He looks like some guy working at a haunted house. With a better Myers (even Curse had one), this entry could have been a more worthy anniversary pic and series capper. Again, that was not to be….

    [​IMG]

    UPDATE 10/31

    Final week of October:

    National Theatre Live: Frankenstein: Danny Boyle directs this stage adaptation of the classic tale, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller switching the roles of the Doctor and the Creature in alternating performances. I saw Cumberbatch as Dr. Frankenstein, whom he plays with a cold, aloof intellect, which bodes well for his future as Marvel’s Dr. Strange. It takes a while to get going, but once it does, I enjoyed it. There is some unintentional humor in how Miller plays the intelligent Creature with the mannerisms of a retarded person, though.

    Rifftrax Live: Anaconda: The movie is enjoyable popcorn fare on its own, but there’s plenty for the RT crew to riff on. John Voight doesn’t just chew the scenery, he swallows it whole (see what I did there? Snake reference!). Preceded by another priceless short featuring the worst kiddie costume parade ever. Not my favorite RT live show (that would be Jack the Giant-Killer, followed by Godzilla 1998), but plenty of solid laughs.

    Saw 10th Anniversary: Like Halloween and The Blair Witch Project, this movie changed the face of horror cinema. It popularized torture porn, in which gruesome suffering, not merely death, is the ultimate fear. Its gritty, grimy look was also a trendsetter. While some of the stylistic touches are starting to look dated, the movie holds up, and when that music kicks in and the game is revealed, it gets me every time. I miss horror franchises like Saw and Paranormal Activity releasing yearly theatrical Halloween installments.

    [​IMG]

    That’s it for this year. Will finish up the rest of the Halloween series and box set soon. Signing off….

    I started way early on this. Knee deep already. Halloween starts in the quarter-year leading up to it for me. But I'll limit what I post to October ;)

    I've never seen Hocus Pocus, and that's my gf's contribution to this year's list.

    Also looking forward to the WNUF Halloween Special recommended on here and a back-to-back Bride of Frankenstein/Young Frankenstein viewing.

    I'm assuming that most of the people on here watch horror all year `round. It just intensifies a bit in October. :) Personally, I try to not watch any horror for the second half of September to build up the excitement a bit. Makes the 1st seem like a major holiday to me. Of course it helps that I always book the 1st off of work so I can start off with a crap load of movies on day one.

    I actually saw this in the theater bitd. I was 12 years old and staying at the beach for the summer. They had a single screen theater I could bike to and that was the movie they got for most of it. Because it was even tangentially related to horror (and because I wasn't allowed to watch R rated stuff at the time) I remember liking it.

    Ha! Nice. She's a big fan and claims it's Halloween-related, so I'm looking forward to it.

    I will be stacking my blu/dvd pile tomorrow in preparation and checking out any additional netflix/amazon streaming titles- I crapped out last year in posting updates, but this year I am in all the way!!
