1) Blood & Donuts: What I thought was going to be a quirky 80's Horror/Comedy turned out to be a boring, dry melodrama. Nothing to see here folks. (5/10)
2) Elvira Mistress Of The Dark
3) The Intiation
now on to Trick 'r Treat!
just watched Session 9 myself for the first time in years last night. too early to qualify as my first film of october, but yeah, it really is a damn good movie.
October 1 cont.
Movie #3 Madness (2010) - It's a film that was apparently shot in Sweden, with a Swedish cast but the movie is set in the US and our main characters all are supposed to be American, but have strong Swedish accents....and the killers all speak Swedish???
Once you get past that oddness, you get a pretty typical Wrong Turn kind of story but really low budget and badly acted. Also, the killers are pretty incompetent, it's hard to believe they've lasted this long without getting killed/caught. There doesn't seem to be a real reason for why they are killing people in the first place. I can put up with bad acting and low budget but the lack of logic to this movie is hard to swallow. Some of the things that happen in this movie just don't make sense!
Ah well, there's a couple of decent gore moments considering the low budget but otherwise not really worth a watch.
Movie #4: Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2 (2011) - Not a huge fan of the first one but thought I'd give this one a try. Nothing special really. Some interesting gore fx but the movie was pretty forgettable. Danielle Harris shows up and David Silver (aka Brian Austin Green) has a big part in it.

Fred Olen Ray has been directing B-movies for over thirty years and has dozens of films to his credit. This is one of them. A tale of a bunch of archeology students tramping around the California desert upsetting an evil Indian spirit and they all die. An interesting note about this movie, at the end of the credits a title card appears proclaiming: "Next summer watch for Scalps II: The Return of D.J." This was kind of a fun movie, a sequel would have been cool. What happen Fred Olen Ray? Y U No Sclaps2?? I am disappoint!
Oct 1 - Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
I am off to a poor start with absolutely nothing so far, but I am definitely in! I almost made 50 last year and I am determined to go all the way to that magic number this year. I have so much stuff saved up and will start going at it tomorrow night. October really crept up on me far too quickly this year!
Movie #5: The Collector (2009) - First time watch. Got a little too torture for my tastes at times, but otherwise it drew me in and kept me involved the whole way through. Pretty good stuff if you can shut off the logical part of your brain a bit.
Movie #6: Thirst (2009) - Well it's pretty. It's a little long but at least it's a different take on vampires. Not sure if I loved it, but I definitely liked it.
Movie #7: Black Magic (1975) - Honestly I found it to be pretty boring. First Shaw Bros. movie for me. Not so bad that I won't check out any more but not really anything awesome either.
Movie #8: Child's Play (1988) - You know this one. I've seen it a bunch of times. The kid annoys me but Chucky is awesome.
No real theme tonight.

Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987)
A mix of cheesy and solid f/x, with notes to Carrie, The Exorcist and, call me crazy but I'm pretty sure about this: Sixteen Candles in two brief shots.
Entertaining but not perfect supernatural slasher sequel. 3.5/5
Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988) :troll::troll::joshua::joshua::joshua:
Works best on a juvenile brain. Once you've been around the exploitation bend though it all comes up as a rather short tease now instead. I want it to succeed every time but it never does. Linnea Quigley as another punk girl, Brinke Stevens getting spanked, moody lighting and a demon running around as The Bride of Frankenstein. Still it disappoints. Frustratingly disappoints.
The Pit and the Pendulum (1990) :troll::troll::troll::troll::joshua:
Henriksen is wound up very tight, Combs is underutilized (as usual) but Rona De Ricci is who really shines in this. Its black sense of humor feels a little more Charles Band than Stuart Gordon but is pretty good none the less. One of the better screen plays and cast but its flat production cheats it. Still an overlook effort by Gordon. Recommended.
Look for Henry Daniell from "Well of Doom" in other Thriller episodes. He is in a total of five episodes playing different roles of course. I thought "Well of Doom" was the best of the bunch though. I plan on watching some Thriller episodes this month too.
just watched this today myself. hadn't seen it since i was a teenager, but i enjoyed it quite a bit. the shower room scene in the middle seems pasted in to up the nudity quotient, but it ends up resulting in one of my favorite deaths in the film.
currently i'm making my way through the trailer compositions from Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide.
