    Damn, this has been a lousy horror watching year (well movies in general), can't find the time for it, unless I stop working/eating/sleeping or browsing the Internet a little bit. I'll try to make it up a little for this month, although for me october means just...october the month after september and the month 2 months away from december. I already have a pile of DVDs and files in my PC clogging the hard drive, so I'll have to see what's there and take it from there.

    My avatar's a ghost. You can't see it but you can feel it when you're walking down dark corridors.

    I've decided I'm going to beat the 103 movies that I watched last year. I'm dedicated and single. :)

    ...And The Halloween-y seasonal movie watching at The Slackjaw Compound has officially begun! Kicked it off with 2 favorites :

    Movie #1 : Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman (1943):

    [​IMG]

    Absolutely a Universal classic, carried primarily by Lon Chaney Jr's tortured performance as werewolf, Larry Talbot. Sadly, Bela Lugosi as The Monster left a lot to be desired. Watching this has actually made me consider doing a full-on "Pre 1970" Horror-fest this year. We'll see if that happens or not.....


    Movie #2 : The Monster That Challenged The World (1957):

    [​IMG]

    Schlocky 50's B-movie with the typical "Monster born of Radiation" plot. That said, it was a fun flick and the creature was actually amazing to behold. Some great underwater photography, some great looking 1950's women, and a great looking giant monster....how can you go wrong?

    It's not October yet but I was warming up last night.Watched THE BEAST WITHIN which I hadn't seen in years and AMUSEMENT which I had not seen.BEAST stands up as a fun film from the glory days of bladder effects horror movies.Good cast in that one and a robust score by the late Albert Glasser.AMUSEMENT was a bit better than I had heard by was certainly flawed,it needed a rewrite and some restructuring.Nice score though.

    OCT 2 SCARECROWS I thought this movie dragged a bit but it was worth a watch and it had some impressive gore.I saw a HD transfer courtesy of Monsters HD.

    OCT 3 Let The Right One In I didn't see the hype with this movie.It was OK, to say the least.It had some good gore but thats it.

    One thing I love about this thread every year is those of you who put your mini-reviews or at least opinions instead of just a list of the movies you've seen. I realize that time is a limitation sometimes, but for those of you who can please tell us what you think of what you've seen, even the classics that we all have viewed over and over again. I love hearing what other true horror fans have to say about the movies we love!!

    I'm hoping to watch a bunch of old Hammer films this October. I got a head start with Curse of Frankenstein the other day, and I plan on following up with the next installment, Horror of Dracula, Thursday at midnight.

    I changed my mind though, and started off with a Hammer film I'd somehow never seen before...

    Cool idea. Any idea of what you're going to start with? I was thinking of starting with maybe Madman, Final Exam or perhaps something from the Crypt of Terror South of the Boarder collection.

    Yes. I start off with direct-to-video films like... Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (because I like the late-80's sleazy films, the horror-comedies instead of the late 70's "serious" exploitation sleaze stuff; if it's gonna be sleaze, it might as well be light-hearted) or The Dead Next Door, and I usually do a lot of sequels. The later films first (maybe... Nightmare on Elm Street 5 and 6, Leprechaun 3). Maybe some Troma films, like Monster in the Closet or Frostbiter. Maybe the teen slashers that feel more like thrillers, the "teeny bopper" films from the 90's and later (Valentine, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream sequels). Then I just raid my stash of Anchor Bay, MGM 'catalog titles' like Vamp, After Midnight, Slugs, Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II, Children of the Corn, etc.

    I usually wait until the 11th to work up to George Romero, Larry Cohen, Stuart Gordon, Wes Craven, Lucio Fulci- directors like those.

    And then I save the very last week for stuff as big as Dawn of the Dead, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Suspiria, Evil Dead, Carrie, Dead Alive, American Werewolf in London, Phantasm, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Hellraiser, etc.

    I also try to save the films with the best atmosphere for later in the month. That's why I think I do the more comedic films toward the start. As well as the dumbest, most fast-paced. So you have some fun at the start and get sucked in to the headier, slower things as you go along.

    Movie # 3 : Invaders From Mars (1953)

    [​IMG]

    Great 1950's alien invasion flick with some great set design, some amazing stock footage usage, some happy fussy green aliens, and a great tentacled martian head-in-a-jar! A bit of a pacing problem, but still a fun, wild ride from beginning to end.

    Thanks. Some great choices there. Definitely ones I'm going to consider for my October viewings.

    Okay, I'll give this a go...

    I got an early start Saturday 9/25 with Let the Right One In. I hadn't seen it before, because I was waiting to find a Blu-ray w/ the theatrical subtitles. I thought it was very good, but not to the level it's been hyped. The slower pace and stark Swedish atmosphere are genuinely haunting, something you don't get much of nowadays. I'm also looking forward to the U.S. version, as is my GF, who went the extra step of reading the book first.

    Tonight, 9/28, was Hatchet. I originally saw this theatrically, and I hope the sequel comes my way as well. I enjoy this movie. It's a slasher flick that's not trying to be clever or self-referential, just to deliver the old-school splatter in ways the MPAA of old would never allow. Great stuff, with some add'l spray 'n' splat in the Unrated Director's Cut on BD. That Victor Crowley is an absolute beast, and I look forward to his continuing exploits.

    Some tentative October plans: A Saw marathon in honor of the final (?) installment, Paranormal Activity before seeing Part 2, Rob Zombie's Halloween II (which I liked a lot, despite having serious misgivings about his first Myers flick), a Diary / Survival Romero mini-marathon, and making Trick 'r Treat a new season staple.

    UPDATE 10/3

    First weekend of October:

    High Tension: This one earns its title with several truly harrowing sequences. It also earns props in the gore department. I like how the kills have that extra little something that makes them really brutal (the mom having her hand cut off after the throat slashing; stepping down on the gas station attendant with an axe in his chest). Knowing the twist ending, it's also fun picking up on the little clues sprinkled throughout.

    Sleepy Hollow: Love the casting (many familiar faces in addition to leads Depp and Ricci). Great gothic atmosphere that is at once authentic-looking, but with the signature Burton style. The Headless Horseman is an awesome killing machine in this; he's like a historical Jason Voorhees with martial arts skillz. The only downside for me is some out-of-place CGI and silliness that doesn't work. All in all, I would recommend this as a quintessential Halloween movie.

    Let Me In: Very good American version of the Swedish vampire story. It has a faster pace, but is not as haunting, as the Swedish movie. Some scenes came off better in this version, some not as good. I like Elias Kotea's police investigator; the character helps move things along better and in more convincing fashion than the first film. The Road and Kick-Ass kids were excellent. Some hokey CGI in the vampire attacks (which seem inspired by The Exorcist). This is not a suck-ass blasphemous remake by any stretch; I recommend all fans of the original check it out and give it a chance.

    [​IMG]

    UPDATE 10/17

    Second week of October:

    Critters: Take a believable family, surround them with rural small-town 'types,' add attacking hungry furballs from space, throw in some awkward no-nonsense intergalactic bounty hunters who blow stuff up real good, and you have a great, fun creature feature. The Crites themselves are pint-sized bundles of mean, with personality, brought to life with cool puppetry FX.

    And now for something completely different....

    The Human Centipede (First Sequence): This is actually much better than expected, as it takes the bizarre central idea and builds a good, tension-filled horror movie around it. The two American girls start off ditzy and obnoxious, so in a slasher film, you'd root for them to get killed. But no one deserves this. Once the mad doctor (special props to the performance of Dieter Laser) explains his intentions, a dark dread descends upon what is so far a by-the-numbers scary movie exercise. The doc isn't a sex sicko; he treats his creation as a cross between a work of art and a pet. Thankfully, the movie is actually not terribly graphic, and is all the better for it.

    Splinter: I love monster movies, but this one didn't do much for me. I didn't care for the characters (especially the ex-con gunman; when the film tries to make him a good guy by giving him a sad back story and noble intentions, I didn't buy it for a minute). Some good FX work on the creature (a kind of infectious, parasitic mold) is wasted by quick-cutting and shaky-cam. Disappointing. (P.S. The line "Don't worry, we're cutting your arm off!" is certainly Troll 2-worthy.)

    [​IMG]

    UPDATE 10/23

    Second weekend of October (aka Raimi weekend):

    The Evil Dead: What new can possibly be said about this one? Like Night of the Living Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and The Blair Witch Project, this is a very low-budget first-time effort made by unknowns that succeeds brilliantly. It has since gone on to become the very definition of a cult classic.

    Evil Dead II: The original "reboot." Great, fun FX. Ash becomes both a caricature and an action hero. Having not seen it in a while, I was surprised how silly it actually is, which makes it a better transition to the third film...

    Army of Darkness: When I originally saw this in its theatrical run, I was very disappointed. I expected "Evil Dead 3" and instead got "The Three Stooges Meet the Evil Dead." It's grown on me quite a bit since then. Ash has some great one-liners in this, but it's still surprising the "hero" is such an asshole.

    Drag Me to Hell: After many years away from the Evil Dead (and horror in general), this is a return to form. The look, the sound, the overall style are very much in the spirit of the ED films. I like Alison Lohman in this; she has a lot of spunk and creates a genuinely likable and sympathetic heroine. Too bad she (spoiler alert!) goes to hell.

    [​IMG]

    UPDATE 11/12

    Third week of October:

    Shaun the Sheep: Little Sheep of Horrors: My GF loves cute stuff, so she picked this up. It's six short episodes of the Aardman Studios stop-motion animated show, most of which have a spooky theme. It's not as good as Wallace & Gromit, but what is? This is obviously made for young kids, but like W&G it shows that the chaps at Aardman like their scary movies as they reference them quite a bit. Recommended for the young 'uns.

    Paranormal Activity: I first saw this last year at a packed midnight show. It worked great in that context, but I was worried it might not stand up at home (despite home viewing being arguably a better setting for a "found footage" movie). No worries though. This is very well done for what it is and the intensity from subtle supernatural goings-on escalating to an all-out attack from an unseen assailant holds up very well. There are some flaws in logic (even if an "expert" advises them that leaving the house won't help, it certainly wouldn't hurt so why not try it?). The alternate ending is good, but wouldn't work with the sequel.

    [​IMG]

    Third weekend of October:

    Paranormal Activity 2: This is both a prequel and a sequel to Paranormal Activity. It has a much slower start to it than the first film, but towards the end it gets more intense than the first. All in all, a great follow-up that maintains the style of the original, and the shock moments certainly worked on the audience I saw it with. I hope the Japanese spin-off Paranormal Activity: Tokyo Night gets released here.

    Wes Craven's My Soul to Take 3-D: First of all, there was no reason for this to be in 3-D. Beyond that, it wasn't particularly good, but it had an oddness to it that I found engaging. I liked the camaraderie between the two main kids. It seemed like a riff on Nightmare 4, where both the killer and his ultimate victim benefit from each death. More could have been done with this angle though; odd that Craven missed the opportunity to show up one of his bastard Freddy stepchildren and instead just kinda borrowed from it. It didn't "feel" like a Wes Craven film anyway. Best line: "What men will do to you in prison is nothing compared to what demons will do to you in hell!"

    [​IMG]

    UPDATE 11/20:

    Last week of October:

    The Rocky Horror Glee Show: I'm not a regular viewer, but I tuned in for this. (I even bought the soundtrack CD a few days before.) I liked it; it was fun and for the most part, very well done. At least the teacher acknowledges up front that some things will need to be changed / edited for high school presentation. The actual altered song lyrics seem odd and inconsistent, however. I imagine it was done to try and show what a HS Rocky Horror might have to be like, as opposed to any actual problems with the network (Fox shows Family Guy in prime time, after all). My GF, who is a long-time RH fan, really liked their Riff Raff and the set design. Best line: "Halloween is that time of year when we dress our little boys like little girls, and dress our little girls like tramps." Actually, the Evil Coach Lady's entire monologue about our favorite holiday was pretty good. What's up with her mini-me though?

    Children of the Corn (1984): Children of the Cheese anyone? Does this have any kind of following nowadays? It has not aged well (and was probably never that good to begin with). Stupid main characters (and the man was a condescending jackass to his wife), unintentionally funny evil kids, and a laughably bad climax. Some good music and a few creepy moments, though.

    Rifftrax Live: House on Haunted Hill: Another great show from the RT crew. For the uninitiated, the color version of the movie is riffed in front of a live audience in Nashville by Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett of MST3K fame. The event is beamed to theaters across the country by Fathom Events. HOHH benefits from being a good movie in its own right, but there's certainly comic potential and the Riffers nailed it. One of the highlights of these shows are the shorts they riff before the movie. Some really bizarre, obscure, and sometimes disturbing stuff. They had one about a grocery store witch criticizing shoppers for wasting money on things like real milk, when powdered condensed milk is just as good but much cheaper (yeah right), and a disturbed kid learning amazing things about paper from a talking paper bag. I highly recommend everyone get out and give these RT Live shows a try.

    UPDATE 11/22

    HALLOWEEKEND:

    Halloween II (2009): When I saw this in a theater, I loved it. It gave me that electric, spine-tingling feeling that only a good new movie starring an old favorite character (Godzilla, Jason, etc.) can. It was an improvement over Zombie's flawed H1. It felt like an especially brutal '80s slasher. I thought the ghostly visions of Michael's mom were a great and interesting way to get into the head of a hulking mute killing machine. That said, I was disappointed w/ the Director's Cut on BD. Laurie is given more "rant time," and for a character that needs to be more sympathetic, that's not a good thing.
    I thought the theatrical ending w/ Laurie killing Michael, taking the mask, and being carted away to an institution to commune w/ her dead mom was much better and more full-circle satisfying than just having both gunned down by trigger-happy cops.
    Thanks to *someone* (Sony, the Weinsteins, Rob himself?) refusing to put both cuts on the BDs, now I have to look for the superior theatrical version for cheap on DVD (like I did w/ H1) for this to become a true holiday staple. Thanks guys! :mad:

    Trick 'r Treat: This, on the other hand, is most definitely a new holiday staple. It captures not just the look of Halloween, but the feel and the meaning of it as well. It's also a great anthology in that all of the stories are good, and they all interconnect in both major and subtle ways. It boggles my mind that this awesome movie was shelved for a couple years before going straight to video. This is a New Classic.

    Halloween (1978): There's nothing new to say about this classic that hasn't already been said. It's quite possibly the single most influential horror film ever made. I'll just say that it looks great on Blu-ray; a very noticeable improvement over my old DVD (the 2-disc Anchor Bay LE w/ the extended TV version). I can't comment on the extras (haven't watched them yet), but the improved AV quality alone is worth the upgrade.

    [​IMG]

    And I'm done. Already looking forward to next year. Second Halloween in a new house: Time to get serious w/ the decor and trick-or-treat set-up.

    Movie #4 : Halloween (2007)

    [​IMG]

    The first movie of the season that's post 1970! Truth be told, I'm not the biggest fan of Rob Zombie's "re-imagining" of the John Carpenter classic (though I did enjoy part 2 and may watch that one later this Halloween season), but the Kitten really enjoys it and wanted to watch it tonight, so we did. Honestly, I don't hate it. Once you get past the fact that it simply isn't a straight "Halloween" flik and take it on it's own merits, it's actually not a bad little slasher flik. The last bit (i.e the more straight "remake" section of the film) certainly has the chilly, October vibe in spades.

    I'll keep track here, managed 153 last year somehow, hopefully I'll do a better job at keeping this up than the yearly list.

    NetFlix-style ratings system, bold are first-time viewings.

    1. 10/1. Day the World Ended-1955: ***
    Better than I expected, Roger Corman's 4th movie and you can tell it's a Corman flick. I actually thought I'd seen it before but it was just the shitty remake In the Year 2889.

    2. 10/1. The Telling-2009: *
    Stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid Anthology with a bunch of shitty Playboy Playmates trying to be actresses, it's fucking terrible and dumb.

    3. 10/1. Quarantine-2008: ****
    Fine remake of the Spanish flick [rec], never got the hate this movie seems to get from some since it's pretty damn good.

    4. 10/1. Zombies of Mass Destruction-2009: ***1/2
    Despite it beating you over the head repeatedly with it's politics it's still a decent cheap Zombie flick with some nice carnage and genuinely funny moments.

    5. 10/1. House of the Living Dead-1973: *1/2
    Dull, the ending kinda brings it up a bit though.

    6. 10/1. The Brides of Dracula-1960: ****
    For some reason I hated this the first time I saw it, the second time I like it a whole lot more. Pretty much your standard Hammer flick but it does all the usual stuff quite well and is entertaining.

    7. 10/2. Frozen-2010: ****
    Enjoyable little Horror/Thriller about three people trapped on a ski lift, nice tension and acting and yeah, it's good.

    8. 10/2. John Carpenter's Vampires-1998: *****
    I'm not exactly finished this yet but I've seen it enough times to know that 1. It's underrated as all fuck and 2. It's one of my favorite Vampire flicks of all time, easily top 5.

    9. 10/2. Chiller-1985: *
    What the fuck, Wes?

    10. The Tell-Tale Heart-1960: *
    This and Chiller serve as reminders on why not to pick up cheap $1 PD DVDs.

    11. Shallow Ground-2004: ***1/2
    Proof that not every movie that comes from The Sci-Fi Channel is terrible.
