    I think Lisa and the Devil is my favourite Bava flick. The intro is one of the best, and Telly Savalas is just so wonderfully creepy.

    I dunno. I didn't hate it, but it just seemed like every time the movie was going to get creepy, we ended up with a half hour scene of gore. I enjoy gore and all, but non-stop gore gets a little boring after a while.

    Funny thing is, I enjoyed City Of The Living Dead and House By The Cemetery quite a lot. Maybe I wasn't in the right kind of mood when I watched The Beyond. I'll definitely give it another chance.

    It's my favorite Bava film too. I love the surreal dream atmosphere, the spooky mansion, and stylish photography. Telly Savalas is perfectly sinister with just the right amount of sick humor. I couldn't imagine anyone else pulling off the role of Leandro so well. I never miss watching Lisa and the Devil around Halloween. Black Sabbath would rank second for me.

    Great thread once again, and I too had fun checking out everyone's watchings and reviews! Looks like I tied my record of last year with 31 movies. Was hoping to get through quite a few more, but I have been working three jobs, which means not too much time, and the time I do have I spent sleeping.

    Anyways, I came home to a treat on Halloween with my copies of The Beyond and Pieces in the mail (They only got mailed out on the 30th!). Needless to say, i watched them. I loved both of them. Pieces was a quirky fun good time, with some nice gore. The Beyond toped Pieces in the gore department though, as well as came with a nice atmosphere. I love Fulci movies! I also managed to watch Dawn of the Dead European cut which was surprisingly quite good. I'm not sure which version is my favourite, as they each have something to offer. The extended cut has well, more scenes, the European cut has a faster pace and better music, and the theatrical cut flows the best. And last but not least, i watched Halloween 2. I've seen the first one so many times, and although I planned on watching it as well, it just was not going to happen, so I went with the gorier sequel. I really like this movie, and think it goes well with the first movie, even if they both went two different paths.

    Next year hopefully I can top the 31 movies, but I had lots of fun either way. Lot of great flicks for my first time viewings with The Beyond, Stagefright, Tenebre, Psycho 2, and Pieces being the stand outs!
