I will start off with
I'm kinda busy but I'm gonna try to get one in a day. Tonight me thinks I will start things off with Grace but I may change my mind before I get to it.
Starting the month off with John Carpenter's classic....THEY LIVE!!!!!!
I started off with "Murder Party" at midnight. I had never seen it before, and thought it was a great Halloween movie. Tonight, I'll watch the new "New York Ripper" blu-ray!
I'd really like to watch two f13 movies each weekend (most of which I've never seen), but there are a few movies I wanted to watch before I concentrated on my F13 marathon (Night of the Demons 2 & 3, Suspiria, They Live, Death Wish, Phantasm 3, Demons and Howling III).
SPAWNINGBLUE'S OCTOBER 2009 HORROR WATCHING
Bold = first time viewing. Rating out of 10.
House of 1000 Corpses (2003) 8/10
Started my October viewings with two classics from 1973 - The Creeping Flesh and The Legend of Hell House. Haven't seen both in years and really enjoyed the re-visit.
Halloween Horror Film Fest
We're having a Halloween Horror Film Fest at camp Half Dog Jury as well. We actually started last week, because October just isn't long enough for all the love we have for it.
We're posting frequent updates to twitter.com/halfdogjury but I'll post weekly wrap ups and check out what you folks are watching as well.
Highly Recommended! This film disturbed the crap out of me. György Pálfi directs Hungary's most twisted cinematic vision of all time. He's channeling the violent heart of Takashi Miike through a pound of polish sausage, and spicing it with enough subtext to blow your mind. There's no way to grasp the entire concept in one sitting, but this dessert is far too rich to consume often.
#2 Død Snø
This movie was actually more fun than I thought it would be. There's actually a tremendous amount of production value here, and the amount of blood they used to cover their actors is spectacular. The make up is great, so long as you understand that your watching a mid-budget foreign film. I'd give this movie 7 dismembered limbs out of 10. It's sure to please a movie party crowd.
#3 The Mangler
Tobe Hooper's film about a giant stationary machine that well, mangles people. Also includes an incestuous, half crippled, one eyed Robert Englund who's the kind of boss who would yell "get back to work!" after a tragic accident. Better than I remember it, but it's in that area of the 90's where 80's horror values still persisted and a new voice of horror wasn't yet found.
Wonderful psychological film about growing up in the 50s with cannibal parents. Balaban goes a bit David Lynch here, and directs the hell out a creepy looking child actor who hits it out of the ball park. Where this movie is light on gore, it makes up with eeriness and an uncomfortable atmosphere that's sticks to the ribs. When I was a kid this movie creeped me the hell out, and watching it again I was able to time travel back into my own head and remember the nightmares it gave me, and the distrust it attempted to instill into my skull.
#5 Something Wicked This Way Comes
One of my absolute childhood favorites. Jonathan Pryce looks so badass in this film that it makes my eyes bleed. If I could look and act like Mr. Dark 24/4 there would be no shortage of pussy or instilling fear into the hearts of men. Ultimately this is a film about casting off regrets, the fear of change, and growing old, as told through the eyes of a man looking back at a series mysterious events in his childhood. Also, everyone needs a friend like Jim Nightshade.

01. I Bury the Living (1958)
10/1-Halloween 3:Season Of The Witch
The past week or so I've been struggling to pick at least two movies to start out with. And I settled on two awesome slasher flicks of this decade. Christopher Smith's "Severance" hasn't gotten nearly as much attension as it deserves and I strongely suggest anyone here who has not seen it, track down a copy and buy it, worth every penny!
I'm going to try and include only first time viewings this month. So far:
Okay I actually watched Mimic for the first time to kick October off. I thought it was pretty good although it didnt blow me away.
I think I did OK for the first day... Everything I watched today were ones I never seen before... except for 1 short.
- Brotherhood of Blood
I was actually a bit disappointed in this one. The main plot of the story was decent... and I liked the stars... but they had it jumping back and forth with flashbacks too much.. needlessly confusing you.
- Dead Set
This one I enjoyed quite a bit... is actually a UK miniseries I believe... Zombies attacking with a group of people stuck in the Big Brother house.
This is one of those cheap low budget movies that was in a 50 movie boxset. While pretty low budget and cheesy... still oddly entertaining.
TV Show Eps.
- The Hunger: Season 1 - The Swords
Entertaining but weird.
- The Hitch
This is a short found on Fangoria: Blood Drive DVD. I enjoyed every minute of this short!
-House 2:Second Story
-Return Of The Living Dead 2
