    9) Vampire Circus (1972)

    Had not seen this one in a long time. A local channel in Phoenix used to occasionally show it late nights circa 1980-1982. I'm not sure if I ever actually made it all the way through a full viewing before now because it freaked me out so bad when I was a kid. Watching it now, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of gore and nudity.

    19. Trick or Treat
    -I love this movie! I was a heavy metal kid in the 80's (and I still love it!), so that aspect of the flick is a huge plus for me. Sammi Curr is a formidable looking villain, although he does get a bit ridiculous toward the end. Marc Price gives a great performance as the bullied outcast initially out for revenge and then scared by how out of control it gets. Although I do think the movie somewhat loses its way during the second half, overall it still works. No gore to speak of here, though. Gene Simmons and Doug Savant from Melrose Place and Desperate Housewives add excellent supporting roles, and the soundtrack is solid as well! Great stuff here........8.5/10.
    20. The Fog
    -One of the heavy hitters comes out to play here. When he is on his game, NOBODY does spectacular atmosphere and mood like John Carpenter. Halloween is of course his greatest, but this one is a contender as well. Those shots of the fog and the ghosts are some of the greatest in horror, and the film is boosted by great acting by some of my favorites throughout. If you haven't seen this, then you need to slap yourself across the face and get yourself to the keyboard to order this right now! Watching it is not enough, you need to own it for several subsequent joyous viewings. A true classic........9.5/10.
    21. Night of the Living Dead (1990 Savini remake)
    -Many of you will undoubtedly call me crazy, but I prefer this to the original in absolutely every way. The atmosphere somehow works better in the drained color that is utilized, the acting is much better than the original (especially the incredible showcase roles of Tony Todd and Tom Towles), and of course the effects are better. A modern classic that deserves a lot more respect than it has received. Give this one another chance, guys!.............9/10.
    *29 to go to reach 50 for this year...I'm going to make it!!

    11 - House Of The Devil Oct 14
    This was great. I dont get the bashing. The pace was fine. It was a slow build yeah but not "bad". And the so called plot holes never once pulled me out of the movie. Every one of them pointed out in the thread here I rationalized just fine while I was watching it. And even now thinking about it more none of them are that egregious. Its a damn good old school horror flick. And I mean OLD school. Not the nods to Halloween/Friday that Hatchet and The Tripper strove for. This is early 80s, late 70 style before the bad guys were front and center with the spotlight on them.

    Friday Night Triple Feature

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Rosemary's Baby (1968)

    Young couple encounter witches and satan in new apartment building. Classic thrills that still delivers the goods.
    October/Halloween score: 5/5 for including surreal nightmares, body painting, nude coven, devil chant, asian tourist with camera, black cradle, breast milk, awful vidal sassoon hairdo.

    Let's Sare Jessica to Death (1971)

    Young couple + friend encounter ghostly vampire in new old house by the lake. Just like good wine this one gets better with age.
    October/Halloween score: 5/5 for including Mariclare Costello as Emily, zombified townsfolk, scary stuff in the water, stuffy attic, dead mole, poison apples, seance, inner monologue, whispering voices, electronic score.

    Don't Look Now (1973)

    Young couple in Venice are haunted by the spirit of dead daughter. A blind psychic predicts an unhappy ending though. Excellent psychological horror that almost could have been a great giallo too!
    October/Halloween score: 5/5 for including: chilly Venice, white rats, dooming red color, psychic breast rub, extended sex, eerie canal travel vision.

    13 - The Hills Run Red Oct 15

    I guess I accidentally did a Sophie Monk double feature. I had no idea the girl from Life Blood was in this. I just grabbed what looked interesting off my to watch pile. What are the odds of that?

    Very good flick. But Im a sucker for that TCM style lost in the sticks movie. Its my favorite style of horror flick. Not as good as Frontier(s) but better than the Wrong Turns. I had low expectations though, thats why this has sat unwatched for so long. I just thought it was going to be a cheap DTV Hills Have Eyes rip off. Its not. Tons of gore and gratuitous nudity as well.

    Up to a whopping THREE.

    Last week I popped in The Curse of Frankenstein. You know, that might actually be my least favorite of the Hammer Frankensteins, odd as that sounds.

    Tonight was The Omen on Blu-Ray. Great improvement over the laserdisc I'm used to.

    My Thoughts:
    This is one I enjoyed very much. I thought the whole story was well done. It is one that kept my interest from the beginning to the end. I also really liked the look they gave Gill-Man... and enjoyed the underwater scenes quite a bit. I was just recently given Creature from the Black Lagoon: The Legacy Collection... and I must say I am not disappointed in the least. The quality is very good (at least on my standard 24in. TV)... and there is a nice selection of extras. This is my third time watching this movie... but I never seen any of the sequels so I am thrilled I finally have this legacy collection release.

    My Rating: 4/5

    Terence Fisher returns to direct Hammer Films' fourth Frankenstein chapter, once again starring the unequalled Peter Cushing. The Baron doesn't seem quite as evil this time around, but then again, how evil can you be when you create something as beautiful as Susan Denberg?

    Grandon Rhodes
    Dave Willock

    Plot:
    In this provocative follow-up to the original, the Creature (John Agar) has been captured by scientists who will stop at nothing to uncover his secrets. Miserable in captivity, the Creature finds only one source of sympathy – a beautiful female researcher (Lori Nelson). Soon he escapes and kidnaps her, determined to take her to his underwater lair. Acting legend Clint Eastwood’s first screen appearance is among the surprises found in this clever sequel, directed by the original’s Jack Arnold.

    Extras:
    Scene Access
    Audio Commentary
    Feature Trailers

    My Thoughts:
    While I still enjoyed it... this one lost a little something for me by bringing the Gill-Man to civilization. Granted that if they didn't it would have basically been the same movie over again. I could be imagining things here... but it also seemed like we saw a bit less of the Gill-Man this time as well. And the parts without him seemed slower to me. Maybe because I didn't care about the characters quite as much this time as I did the last time. But over-all it is still a good movie.

    Year: 1956
    Director: John Sherwood
    Rating: NR

    Video: Full Frame 1.33:1
    Audio: English: Dolby Digital: Mono, Commentary: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo

    Stars:

    Plot:
    Once again, scientists underestimate the Creature (Jeff Morrow), this time in a failed surgical attempt to transform him from a mutant into a human. Being able to live on land is not enough to make the Creature comfortable with humans. Enraged, he turns his wrath on anyone who comes near as he desperately tries to return to the deep-water world where he truly belongs. Highlighted by the original’s eerie underwater photography and distinctive makeup, the film is an enduring tribute to the series’ inventive creators.

    Extras:
    Scene Access
    Audio Commentary

    My Thoughts:
    The first thing I did when I went to watch this one (as I do with all movies I never seen before) is watch the trailer. And I must admit... the trailer really had me worried. First they take him out of the lagoon into civilization... and then they take him completely out of the water? Thankfully it wasn't as bad as I was expecting... but still not as good as the first movie. I would say I enjoyed this one about as much as the second movie.
