    The Last Winter (2007) **1/2

    Liked this a lot. Great acting, cool idea. Execution was--at times--a bit silly. I think there was one too many characters as well. If it'd had a smaller cast, the sense of claustrophobia would have been more prevalent. Girlfriend was not impressed with, as she called it, the
    "ghost-moose"
    , but as a
    wendigo
    , I thought it was rad. Effects were awesome until the every end, when they looked pretty obvious, but otherwise, a solid way to kick off October.


    Yes! cannot wait to see it this month.

    I ordered that just last week, sadly it hasn't come yet.

    As for me I went for more of an unconventional Christopher Lee double feature:
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Hazel Court is a stunner in The Man Who Could Cheat Death and the movie itself is interesting but rather stagy. I don't feel that it really takes its concepts far enough.

    On the other hand The Skull is provocative, entertaining and highly well done. Peter Cushing gives it his all and really helps to sell the film along with some great direction. Highly Recommended.

    Started my movie-watching 31 day marathon tonight as well. Want to start with a classic :

    Oct. 1 : Halloween (1978)

    [​IMG]

    I'm sure in the next 30 days there're bound to be a few clunkers, so starting off with one of the (if not THE) best films in the genre was a must.

    I've seen the film dozens of times and it gets better everytime. The look, the atmosphere, the feel, it's ALL there and it ALL works. Many films of that era seems TERRIBLY dated to me, but Halloween never has. It's stood the test of time and, as everyone on here I'm sure knows, it has a rightful spot on the short list of "the best of the best" of the genre.

    Tomorrow? Who knows, it's not here yet.

    I'm definitely in!

    Didn't have time to watch anything but America's Next Top Model yesterday, but Tyra-bot was pretty horrific so I'm making it count! Aaaaand I got a new widescreen TV for free last night, which will make my Horror-October even more fun! :D

    As Soon as I convince my boss to start letting us watch DVDs at the shop, I'll try to give youa run for the title DVD-fanatic-9 :p

    As it is, I have time for 1 a day (max of 2), which is a bit of a shame.

    Thanks. :)

    Were you the reviewer who gave Patrick that A / A+ rating? You owe me 19 bucks, pal. :mad:

    Okay, how about this. If you didn't like that, then don't watch Franklin's ROAD GAMES, PSYCHO II, CLOAK & DAGGER or LINK. There, I just saved you fifty bucks, so send me your PATRICK and we'll call it even. :D

    Psycho II was a masterpiece, no need to tarnish a man's good name by associating it with Patrick. The man clearly was just getting started with Patrick. An experiment gone horribly awry- as some might say. :evil:

    I'm copying Addicted2DVD, so bold equals a first watch for me, rating out of 5 *'s.

    Oct. 1
    Eyes of a Stranger ***
    Phantasm ****

    Question about Phantasm... What the hell is this movie about? Can anyone explain it without giving away anything that happens in the sequels?
    The whole movie was a dream? If so, how does the Tallman attack Michael at the end? Is he like Freddy Kruger in the sense that he attacks people in their dreams? I've heard that some of the movie is real, and some is a dream?
    Anyways, if anyone can make sense of it for me... that would be great!

    My hero.

    With the vice-presidential debate tonight, along with new episodes of The Office and South Park, I think I'm outta the game for a night.

    EDIT: South Park is on next week, so I should be able to get a film in this evening.

    onebyone/rhett - Wizard Of Gore isn't too bad until the ending but it's a fun ride. I really dug Glover's antics and Kip was pretty good.

    MorallySound - I saw an ad for Things in a magazine and thought about ordering it but now I'm kind of glad I didn't depending which side of the fence you land on.

    Since no one is really backtracking through pages of threads to see what people are watching, I guess I'll post them throughout. Yesterday I managed to watch...

    C.H.U.D.
    Alone In The Dark ('82)
    Scarecrows

    Today so far I've watched:

    Doom Asylum
    Witchboard

    I plan on squeezing one more in before bed.
