    Very cool Horror anthology from Amicus written by Robert Bloch.

    Carrie (1976)
    Brian De Palma directed film based on Stephen King's novel starring Sissy Spacek as the titular teen who unleashes her telekinetic powers on the bullies who've pushed her to the brink. A classic.

    Beetlejuice (1988)
    Tim Burton's macabre comedy displays his typical gothic visual flair. A fun one for all to enjoy.

    [Basket Case trilogy marathon]
    117. Basket Case (1982, 91 minutes) 5.5/10 : Awesome cheapie film with bad creature effects and poor acting but a lot of schlocky spirit. In tribute to this film's New York vibe I think the best way to describe this movie is cheese pizza, it's junk but delicious. The oddity of Basket Case alone is reason enough to view it. Henenlotter has done some highly entertaining unique stuff and this is the film that got him started.
    119. Basket Case 2* (1990, 90 minutes) 4.5/10 : Not particularly terrifying but a parable about acceptance when you're a plain vanilla guy living in a world of freaks. Clever for twisting convention. Basket Case 2 plays out more like a feel good movie than the murderous creature film that might have been expected after the first movie. The far out nature of this film takes some time to settle in and some of the commentary seems a bit too explicit but it's madcap fun and gets points for being a ballsy very different feature. I'm still now sure how I feel about it all.
    120. Basket Case 3 (1992, 90 minutes) 3.5/10 : It's always annoying when films are released in only butchered fullscreen ratio. I really liked Basket Case 2 because it was different and original, while Basket Case 3 follows suite it may be too much of the same. It takes guts to pull off a monster school bus sing-a-long but BC3 seems almost too random. The more I try to give the Basket Case sequels my rating the more I realize how unclassifiable they are. I wanted to like this more than I did and it's my least favorite Henenlotter film.
    121. Mystery Science Theather 3000: The Robot Vs Aztec Mummy [Episode 02.02]* (MST3k episode length/date: 1989, 98 minutes) 3/10 : It was fun seeing a MST3k episode since it's been so long but this one was hit or miss. I chose it because I'd been curious about the Aztec Mummy but wow was that one lame. The only half-way cool part was a brief showdown between the cheesy robot and the mummy but otherwise a total waste of time on it's own.
    [Nosferatu double feature]
    122. Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror* (1922, 93 minutes [18fps]) 7/10 : Creepy effective movie with one of the best movie monsters of all time. Great imagery and the theme of black death was genius.
    123. Nosferatu the Vampyre* (1979, 107 minutes) 8/10 : Even better than the original due to effective cinematography and Herzog's compositions. The themes of isolation and consequent plague death were more clear and effective with thematic imagery further emphasizing the undercurrent. Kinski as Dracula took some getting use too and he was good but overly familiar.

    * = first time viewing

    I usually have NotLD playing while handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. In my opinion, the best zombie movie ever.

    Dawn of the Dead (1978)
    With the trick-or-treaters done for the night, I thought I'd pop in the sequel. A masterpiece!

    The Exorcist (1973)

    Looking great in HD. I'm saving the Extended Director's Cut for a rainy day.
    October/Halloween score: 5/5

    Halloween (1978)

    See, I can deal with the loss of blue hues when still presented in excellent reference quality, unlike Code Red's Madman re-release for example. But then again Blu-ray pretty much always wins by default. Only my opinion.
    October/Halloween score: 5/5
