Halloween 25 Years Of Terror Special Features Disc
More like Snorehouse.
October 1: Started it off right with Demons (1985). I always forget how much fun this one is. The 80's rock soundtrack doesn't hurt, either.
Tonight, I was too tired to watch a 90+ minute movie so I compromised and watched the Buck Rogers episode "Space Vampire."
Best. Unibrow. Ever.
Next up today was MBV (2009) on blu-ray without the 3-D glasses (my 2nd time without glasses- 3-D is more fun but the movie looks amazing in 2-D in hi-def- so its a no lose either way. )
In the past two days I have been off to a bit of a slow start.
I have seen:
Albino Farm (OK, but too familiar and a little limp with the actual horror elements....somewhat notable for having Chris Jericho and Richard Christy from Howard Stern in small parts-passable for a rental if nothing else is jumping out at you at the video store or Netflix)
They (I stumbled across this one at the local Blockbuster when looking for something else and remembered it as being one of the few decent PG-13 horrors from the period where almost all horror releases were this rating....it was not bad, fairly suspenseful and solid acting overall...not really anything to shit your pants over, though)
I have a couple of more rentals to get through (Farmhouse, The Burrowers and Haunting of Winchester House) and then I will start pulling out some of my collection that have been waiting for an October unveiling...probably looking first at the new dvd's of Friday 7 and 8 along with Phantasm 2!
1st - The Haunted World of El Superbeasto
2nd - Black Magic
3rd - Basket Case
4th - Blacula
5th - Leatherface - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III

Oct 2st: Halloween (blu-ray)
Oct 3rd: Bad Taste, Dead Alive, Cannibal Holocaust
Oct 2nd: The Ruins & Rear Window
first time seeing The Ruins, and i liked it, yea the ending was a letdown, but it was pretty cool movie
Glad I'm not the only one who thinks that Madhouse is a bore. I'm always amazed over the good rating it got at IMDb.
oct 1 : European soccer matches
oct 2 : Jan Svankmayer's Faust (which was, in the very least, interesting) and started with The Strangeness, but was too tired so i'll continue that one today
October 2nd :
Passengers - Slow thriller about folks dealing with life after a plane crash. Nice twist in the end if you can make it that long, but seriously nothing happens for a long time.
Phenomena - One of the better Argento flicks imo. I love the landscapes, gore and creepiness. Some parts in the middle are a bit boring, but definitely worth a watch.
Tonight my mum was visiting so I had to watch fairly tame, but still entertaining, selections. Went with:
I have seen both about a half billion times but still really enjoy every viewing.
I had a rather quiet and lackluster 2nd day:

I just woke up on this fine early first querter of October (my favorite month, by the way) day, and I so far last night enjoyed:
Friday the 13th (1980) uncut Blu-Ray (quality is drop-dead AMAZING, now that I've finally watched this. Hands-down the best the film has ever, and possibly will ever, look. The definitive version of it), as well as listening to the piece together interview commentary, which was interesting. Peter Bracke should have been on all of these.
Then I watched, natch, Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), which is one of my favorite sequels, on Blu-Ray, which I still love every single frame of, MPAA-imposed cuts and all, and then of course--what the fuck else, with all due respect?--Friday the 13th Part 3-D (1982) on Blu-Ray. Still great fun as well, and probably has the best cast, despite a sadly notable lack of acting talent, and has probably my hands down favorite Jason, as well as my favorite list of smokin' Friday hotties ever essembled and rivals Parts 2 and The Final Chapter gals.
Don't know what I'll watch tonight, though ...
01. I Bury the Living (1958)
02. The Corpse Vanishes (1942)
03. The Black Cat (1934)
04. The Raven (1935)
