    October 26th. 50 - Howling VI: The Freaks (1991). 51 - Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992). 52 - Halloween (1978)



    An English drifter with lycanthropy gets captured by a traveling carnival shoe run by a mysterious villain (Bruce Payne). If this had been around 85 minutes long it could have been a fun monster flick, but it dragged so much I dozed off and had to rewind. Still a better movie than Howlings 2 and 3, though. But 2 had Christopher Lee and some hilariously bad moments.



    I watch Coppola's Dracula almost every year. Come for Gary Oldman and the production design, stay for Anthony Hopkins and the score. Forgive Keanu and Winona. The movie has frenzied pace, if Francis Ford Coppola ever does a director's cut of this one I would definitely check it out. (Maybe they could ADR all Keanu's dialog while they're at it.)



    Well crafted, and beautiful in its simplicity, its the classic slasher for good reason. Fun fact, Christopher Lee turned down the role of Dr. Loomis and later regretted it.

    I rewatch this movie every couple of years just to confirm that it still doesn't quite work.
    I'm the same way with this and The Golden Child.

    Also, seriously, what the hell was with the 90s and plots about slasher villains having to chase heretofore unknown blood-relations in order to complete some kind of prophecy and/or spell?
    I hadn't thought about it but you're right. Michael Myers, Freddy Kreuger, and Jason Voorhees all did that. Scream 3 5oo, but with no magic involved. Did Chucky do this too?

    Oh my God, how in the world did they miss Chucky with this trope? It would have been perfect for him. "The voodoo queen said I can only transfer my soul into a body that shares my bloodline. Guess I'd better hunt down the kid I abandoned back when I was human." It writes itself!

    They did give Chucky a doll-kid in the 5th movie, but I don't think that counts, as we saw him being conceived in the previous movie and the plot doesn't dictate that Chucky has to hunt him down.

    I loved this movie when I saw it last year (me and about a dozen other people, judging by box office numbers), and I love the extended version even more.

    Even if it wasn‘t an engaging and chilling horror story in and of itself (and it is), it would still deserve all the credit in the world for successfully functioning as both a sequel to the movie version of The Shining and a faithful adaptation of the Doctor Sleep book, which is obviously a sequel to the book Shining.

    Quote Freddy Krueger: Wake up! You're bleeding.

    It's Okay, I don't mind the changing of Krueger's back story still makes him a monster as a person, in ways even more so. Its just missing Freddy's quips and theatrics.

    October 27th. 53 - The Haunted Palace (1963). 54 - Die, Monster, Die! (1965). 55 - Dagon (2001).



    Roger Corman directed the first H.P Lovecraft adaptation for AIP. For marketability, they titled after an Edgar Allen Poe poem. It's actually based on "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward", which is one of Lovecraft's more direcrly Poe inspired works, as it happens. The movie features Arkham Massachusetts, a Gothic manor, furtive villagers, mutations, the Necronomicon, a Deep One. Vincent Price is having a great time in a dual role. Lon Chaney Jr. has a small part.

    Take heed: if you're gonna burn a with or warlock, maybe yo shouldn't let them have any last words. I've seen a lot of movie villagers do this and it always comes back to bite them.



    The title suggests a cheesey killer-creature -run-amok flick, but its actually another Gothic Lovecraft movie from AIP, very loosely based on "The Colour out of Space". Another mansion, another Arkham, in England, this time. Boris Karloff the unwelcoming owner and the American astronaut from Godzilla vs Monster Zero is the hero come to visit his new girlfriend. The story has elements of House of Usher mixed with scifi. Alas, the mix doesn't quite work, and the result is markedly inferior to both Usher and Haunted Palace. Wisely, after some truly massive leaps in deduction by the hero the movie rushes to an end before it has time to get tedious. Perhaps worth watching for Karloff being as sinister as he can in a wheelchair and just to see the attempt at genre blending.



    From Stuart Gordon of Re-Animator and From Beyond fame comes a loose adaptation of "The Shadow Over Innsmouth". The setting is moved to modern Spain, as a shipwrecked couple are stranded in a bizarre town. The lead is channeling a young Jeffery Coombs as best he can. Had Gordon made this 15 years earlier no doubt it would have starred Coombs. The movie escalates too quickly, so we spend most of it watching a guy get chased around town over and over. But if you like Stuart Gordon's earlier movies this is a worthy followup, with many of the same stylings.

    Phantom of the Opera (1925), the film that kicked off all of the Universal monster stuff that was to come. Generally overacted and underwritten, like many silent films. Not to berate it, its still a classic must-see for any monster movie buff. But this movie has quite the checkered history*, and it shows. The monster make up is outstanding and so are all the set pieces, its really something to see the aesthetic of the 1920s in this manner. So I hadn't seen this before and now I have and I am glad for it!

    *It was originally directed by Rupert Julian, but the first release flopped, so reshoots were done. The reshoot director was none other than - Josh Whedon! No, kidding, it was Edward Sedgewick. And his version was booed off the screen! So finally there was another big round of edits by some new guys, using mixed footage, and this version is essentially the one we have today. Or is it? There are debates I won't bore you with. The thing was again re-edited into a talkie in 1929 and there are rumors of reshoots that may or may not be around in the film. We'll never know because most of that version got burned later. It could even possibly have some 1950s-era stuff in it, there are some indications. So the current copy of this movie is a bit of a mish mash, as near as film historians can tell. Thats ok, its kind of amazing any silent films still exist considering.

    66. The City Of The Dead (1960) A British witchy supernatural horror starring Christopher Lee, released in the U.S. as Horror Hotel, notable for its spooky atmosphere and mid-film Psycho-esque twist, also, the all British cast was required to speak with North American accents, which do noticeably slip from time to time.

    67. In The Mouth Of Madness (1994) The third film in John Carpenter's informal Apocalypse Trilogy, I found it to be rather uneven and didn't quite live up to its Lovecraftian premise, it ends up being another example of the difficulty in pulling off cosmic horror successfully. A lot of the critical reception from the movie's Wikipedia page sums up my impressions... " Critics generally agreed that the film had good technical aspects, mostly in the form of its special effects, acting, and directing, but suffered from being too complicated, confusing, pretentious, and underwhelming. Roger Ebert gave the film a mixed two-out-of-four stars, complimenting Neill's acting and Carpenter's work as a director, but ultimately said the film fell flat due to its screenplay, saying "...one wonders how In the Mouth of Madness might have turned out if the script had contained even just a little more wit and ambition". Gene Siskel gave the film the same rating, as did James Berardinelli, who said the film "comes close to doing something interesting but gets cold feet" and is "confusing, weird, and not very involving", comparing the film to buying an exotic sports car owned only to be driven slowly."

    68 The Phantom Of The Opera (1925) Coincidental that Scott Taylor also watched it today, and I generally have similar feelings, the monster design/makeup for the Phantom is quite well done for the time.

    69 It: Chapter One (2017) I've never actually seen the original with Tim Curry as Prnnywise, never found clowns scary or creepy, so just never had much interest in the movie or story, grabbed this on DVD because it was cheap and I was running out of movies to watch. Anyway, it is well done and well acted, and definitely one of the better Stephen King movie adaptations.

    Busy day today, so a lot of it consisted of seeing portions of several movies on cable. But I’ll stick with the only one I saw all the way through:

    28. House of Horrors (1946)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Horrors

    I’ve been interested in this one for a while. The plot itself is nothing new; man comes across a criminal/monster and uses him to kill people who have wronged him. The only thing making this movie interesting is Rondo Hatton, an actor afflicted with acromegaly, which gave his face a misshapen, brutish look. You might know him the same way I initially did; as the inspiration for the Lothar character from The Rocketeer.

    Universal tried to build a Creeper franchise around Hatton, but he died from his condition shortly after filming this and another movie called The Brute Man. The Blu-ray includes an interview with several pros discussing whether Universal was exploiting Hatton’s condition, and the consensus is that yes, of course they were, but he was a regularly-working actor as a result, so c’est la vie.

    Was good, Jason killing young people around a lake...nothing new really except his tunnel system. The one thing with Jared Padalecki in the lead it felt like Sam Winchester vs Jason Voorhees.

    Devil Bat! Another Bela Lugosi classic with great CGI effects by WETA Workshop, a soundtrack by John Williams, an incredibly complex plot and amazingly wonderful acting all around. Wait ... strike that, reverse it.

    I've watched a bunch this last week, I just got bored with making a list. It's not like anyone is discussing anything.

    But I did watch The Girl with all the Gifts last night. I'd not seen this before. I don't know how this one escaped me even being aware of it, but I really enjoyed it. It isn't really anything new for the genre, but it was fun.
    Hey gang! Looking to sell of some of my TPB/HC collection. PM me if interested.

    70. Murder Party (2007) from Wkipedia: "Christopher, a lonely and plain man, finds an invitation to a Halloween costume party entitled "Murder Party", on the street. Constructing a knight costume out of cardboard, he makes his way to Brooklyn to attend the party, only to discover it is actually a trap set by a group of deranged art students." Actually, more inept, for the most part, than deranged, and that is where a lot of the comedy springs from in the film. Unfortunate and unnecessary use of the "n word", outside of that though, an entertaining film with decent acting and a couple of really well done efx shots accomplished on a shoestring.

    71. Dead And Breakfast (2004) Another relatively low budget horror comedy, with a sort of spirit possession/zombie hybrid premise, pulls ideas from The Evil Dead (a poster for that movie is briefly seen after a character finds a chainsaw to use against the undead) and some from Night Of The Living Dead, also apparently attempted capitalizing on the recent success of Shaun Of The Dead. Rather uneven, pretty good acting except for when it's painfully bad, and there really isn't what you would call a central protaganist, that seems to be treated as a title which is passed on from one character to the next as each meet their demise, I know that's a fairly common trope these days, but in this movie there will suddenly be a character which has received practically no development thrust into a prominent role because the previous lead was just killed off or is about to die, and it feels random and unfocused, definitely could have been avoided with better writing.

    72. Pumpkinhead (1988) A classical morality tale wrapped up as a supernatural horror/creature feature mashup, at least that's how I've long viewed it. The directorial debut of Stan Winston, known for his creature design and SFX work, which is evident it the movie, and starring Lance Henriksen in a somewhat atypical role, at least different from the usually calm, cool and collected characters he's more known for playing.

    October 28th. 56 - Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)
    57 - Hatchet (2006). 58 - Hatchet II (2010). 59 - Hatchet III (2013)


    Sort of a cross between Scream and The Office, one might call it. The movie posits a world where Freddy, Michael, Jason and apparently even Chucky are all real. Leslie Vernon wants to join their ranks, and he's letting a documentary crew follow him as he plans his first teen massacre. He also has an old mentor who, according tovthr director, is the guy from the original Black Christmas, but I didn't catch any nod to that in the movie.



    Let's get this right out the way: a double sided axe is *not* a hatchet! Anyway, it lives up to its 8ntentiosn of being an old school slasher more gore. Similar in tone to Friday the 13th Part VI, but faster paced. Victor Crowley is a deranged and deformed maniac haunting a stretch of swamp outside New Orleans and he'll slaughter anyone who trespasses. People trespass for various reasons. The three movies are one long story happening over consecutive days. Watching them back to back to back, the kills get a rather repetitive. Crowley's trademark isn't even a weapon so much as its just ripping people apart. Anyway, in-jokes abound, it's pretty well shot with good practical effects and fun performances.

    There was a line or two that seemed to suggest Danielle Harris was playing a teenager but she's very obviously in her 30s. And I don't know why she replaced the original actress but she looks close enough that it isn't too jarring. Besides her, who was Jamie Lloyd back in the day, the trilogy features Tony Todd, Robert Englund, Kane Holderness and some other former Jason's, Harmony from Buffy/Angel, and Billy from Gremlins.

    I had seen 1 and 2 already a few years ago, but my recollection of 2 was completely wrong. I could have sworn it had Tony Todd and Robert Englund working together on the hunt, but Englund was only in part 1 briefly.
    I did correctly remember a shout-outs given to Leslie Vernon and Jason Vorhees, making this part of one vast (mostly unofficial) Slasher Cinematic Universe.

    These were all R-rated versions on Amazon. They certainly didn't skimp on blood and violence, so I really don't know how much the unrated version could add. Maybe more closeups and lingering shots of kills? The gore is kind of like the Evil Dead movies where even though it's extreme, I don't think it's grisly or realistic enough to be particularly bothersome.

    I always thought Pumpkinhead's design didn't fit the title or the premise of the movie. He's an avenging demon but looks to me more like an "Alien" Xenomorph-human hybrid. Hell, he looks better as that than the actual hybrid from Alien Resurrection did!

    What is the reverse of John Williams? Is it even music?
