Great!  That shit messed me up for awhile as a young lad.

My Bloody Valentine (2009)

 

 

Above average, even though seeing it in 2D denied me the privilege of ducking under Tom Atkins' jawbone. Really good cast and some quality kills. I also hope the actress who was naked the whole time got paid extra. If I have one big caveat, it's that the film's humorlessness makes a longish (101 minutes) slasher feel even longer.

 

My list, in order of preference:

 

1. The Thing (1982 - Blu-Ray)

2. Black Holler (2017 - A bar near my house)

3. The Blob (1988 - Hulu)

4. Gerald's Game (2017 - Netflix)

5. Puppet Master (1989 - Hulu - Yes, I liked this more than all of the Val Lewton movies I've seen. I'm mildly ashamed, but I yam what I yam)

6. The Body Snatcher (1945 - Filmstruck)

7. Cat People (1942 - Filmstruck)

8. I Walked With a Zombie - (1943 - Filmstruck)

9. My Bloody Valentine (2009 - Hulu)

10. Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987 - Amazon Prime)

12. The Last Horror Film (1982, Amazon Prime)

No 19: Trick R' Treat

The best horror anthology since Creepshow and the best Halloween set film since Carpenter staked his claim of the holiday.

TERROR IN THE AISLES (1984)

 

The mother of all clips shows, except this “show” actually got a theatrical release back in 1984 by Universal (though the focus is not just on Universal properties).  This is an extraordinarily exhaustive, comprehensive look at genre cinema hosted by Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen in a series of segments set in a movie theater that we periodically cut back to.  The content spans everything from classic Universal horror of the 1930s up through the slasher craze of the early 1980s (with even some non horror stuff like MIDNIGHT EXPRESS, MARATHON MAN, and NIGHTHAWKS popping up).  It’s very well edited, alternating between fast-paced montages and selected full scenes, and it’s all held together by a cool original musical score from John Beal that subtly apes recognizable horror scores while still doing its own thing.  This was a frequent go-to option from the video store growing up.

 

Availability:  Included on Universal’s (not Scream Factory’s) Blu-ray release of HALLOWEEN II as a bonus feature.  It’s also available right here!

Train to Busan (Netflix)

Holy shit this was amazing. This movie hit every goddamn emotion just right. And I wasn’t expecting my eyes to sweat (that’s totally what it was) during the horror movie challenge, but goddamn.

THE BABYSITTER (2017)

 

My turn. So I liked this. I thought the relationship between Bee and Cole was very well done. The rest of the movie was all over the place tonally though. Outside of Bee, Cole and the neighbor girl  all of the other characters were pretty much the same. All of Bee's friends were quippy, they could have done with a little more differentiation, and Robbie Amell was just way over the top. I'd watch it again though.

HAPPY DEATH DAY - It was all right. The lead actress, Jessica Rothe or something, is terrific, a born star. She buys the film an enormous amount. Because I think without her, and without Blumhouse's studio polish, this script would be revealed as the lazy piece of junk it is. It's absolutely nothing but a Groundhog Day ripoff, that also borrows copiously from every mean girls movie and every campus stalker movie, with nary a shred of inspiration or originality. The high level of studio execution makes it passably entertaining, if empty, and Rothe supplies the personality. Two things that disappointed me: the horror is so anemic, so PG-13 and uninspired, and the killer's role in the central mystery is ridiculous. As it would be pretty much impossible to chart a course through the film where the Killer's actions and abilities made narrative sense, I was really hoping he'd end up just being some weird Death Elemental or something. Nope, just some Scream 2 shit.

THEY LOOK LIKE PEOPLE:

Another nice surprise. I really dig when people make good use of a minimal budget and limited cast to deliver something effective, and this one hits the sweet spot, sort of an alternate take on TAKE SHELTER. What makes it work as well as it does is that the relationship between the lead and his friend (who is very possibly losing his mind) has a lived-in quality to it with a lot of clearly improvised scenes of them just fooling around to punctuate the scares. Hell of a climax too.

Hatchet (2006)

 



On one hand, the cast is filled with a surprising amount of recognizable faces (Freddy Rumsen as a porn director!), and the gore was so over-the-top ludicrous that it wasn't even gross, but man, I wish this movie was as funny as it thought it was. I liked this slightly better than expected, but I'm definitely grading on the "watched a whole bunch of shitty horror movies over the last couple of weeks" curve.

Hatchet's over-the-top gore makes Itchy and Scratchy look like Faces of Death. It's so cartoonish, it doesn't really have any impact. It has the opposite effect of shock value.

THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH (1964)

 

Roger Corman’s finest hour, and the crowning achievement of his Price/Poe adaptations at AIP.  Gorgeously evocative and with stunning usage of color that would almost make Dario Argento envious, this is a top flight production from the notoriously cheap AIP.  The movie was made in the U.K., so the level of craft is just a bit higher than normal, which gives this particular film a more artful flair.  Co-written by Charles Beaumont (who had a hand in many TWILIGHT ZONE episodes), the script does a fine job of taking the thrust of Poe’s story and expanding it to feature-length in an organic way (in contrast to some of the other Poe adaptations, which play faster and looser with the spirit of the source material).  Vincent Price gives another of his best performances here; his Prospero is an absolute bastard, a casually cruel Satanist that Price plays very convincingly.  Corman was responsible for a lot of terrible stuff in his day, but his Poe films demonstrate there was a real filmmaker at work, and MASQUE stands tall as one of the best genre offerings of the early 1960s.

Yeah, it reminded me of that Peter Jackson/Sam Raimi level of violent slapstick, although I think the filmmaker played those moments "straight," even though the rest of the movie is filled with half-baked wisecracks. The juxtaposition was odd.

 

Bay of Blood (1971)

 

 

I tried watching this a couple of years ago, but the transfer was so lousy that there was no point. Filmstruck just put up a bunch of Mario Bava movies, so it's cool to see his goofy visuals in the best quality. SO MANY RIDICULOUS ZOOMS! This is considered the prototypical slasher, which you can definitely see, between the killer POV shots and varied kills, and an ending that is amazing. An alternate title for this film is Twitch of the Death Nerve, which is the greatest title of anything. Bava, you brilliant bastard.

I've seen the key art for this before.  I've never seen the film but the key art brings to mind Frazetta's "Spider Man" painting.

Weirdly, the poster is from 1971, just 4 years after Frazetta's. I remember seeing the poster long before tonight. Some Googling showed the above link as the only one comparing the two! That kind of blatant theft seems lawsuit-worthy.

 This was just OK. The sets and costumes where impressive, but the story itself was on the dull side. Of course Crushing was good, but David Peel clearly wasn't doesn't have the star power of Christopher Lee.

Back then, pre-internet, it was probably harder to find. Now? No problem and the community of illustrators and artists keep an eye out for these things, too.  

 

Frazetta, by that time, had become quite the name, anyways. He (and Ellie) were way too busy with their own business demands (and growing family) to even deal with such matters (if they even knew about this).

Day 20: Dead & Buried (1981):

Nice to see Jack Albertson going full HAM in this, which makes the finale all the more sweeter.

post #1520 of 1824
From Hammer's run of psycho-thrillers, which are never as fun as the monster and sci-fi flicks:



Known in the US as "Scream of Fear".

Apparently, Christopher Lee thought this was the best Hammer production he appeared in (and his is a small role), quality-wise. I don't know about that, but it's got some gorgeous B&W photography, Susan Strasberg is dishy as hell, and the story by Hammer stalwart Jimmy Sangster has a nice twist or two. It's pretty good.

What a beautiful looking movie. Great script too, and Price is at the top of his game here. It may be a sideways complement for a guy with such a... varied career, but this is easily the best thing Roger Corman ever put his name on. His whole Poe cycle really fired my imagination from when I was very young, and this one is the tops.

THE GATE (1987)

 

Available on: YouTube, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vudu, iTunes

 

Chubby Stephen Dorff! This is another movie that I just wore out growing up. I usually watch this once a year at some point so why not for the challenge? I'm a fan of everything in this movie, from the shoddy claymation to the physics defying multiple flips that Glenn does when he's blown out of his front door from the explosion of shooting the main demon with the rocket. I also like how Terry is all metal since his mom died and has metal stuff all over his room but is still rocking a rainbow sheet.

 This is a decent movie, but a lot of the comedy doesn't work. I know I supposed to think that JK Simmons accent is funny, but its not. Some of the one liners try too hard, "Moveon.org," for example. The punk/goth/emo rocker's outfit was supposed to show how dark and edgy he was, but he just  looked like a model for Hot Topic. If he just wore black jeans and a Nine Inch Nails shirt, I would have found the character more believable. On the plus side Fox is good in the movie. She has a couple of moments where she sells the regret she has for being a monster. Adam Brody is having fun playing a tool. Needy and Chip's relationship is sweet. The movie does have some slick camera work. That aerial shot of Jennifer swimming was impressive. Finally, I forgot Chris Pratt is in this.

It took me three days to get through "Carnosaur," but I did it. The movie feels like you're actually watching three separate movies all at once. I'm not sure I totally understood what deal was. There are chickens that lay eggs with dinosaurs in them, and a virus that impregnates women with dimosaur eggs, and Diane Ladd in a very comfortable looking sweater giving speeches that mad scientists always give. Then everybody dies. There are two sequels.

What a beautiful looking movie. Great script too, and Price is at the top of his game here. It may be a sideways complement for a guy with such a... varied career, but this is easily the best thing Roger Corman ever put his name on. His whole Poe cycle really fired my imagination from when I was very young, and this one is the tops.
 

Cinematography by Nic Roeg! It really is incredible.

CARNOSAUR is the movie Gene Siskel infamously enjoyed more than JURASSIC PARK!

I like me some cheesy movies sometimes but I can't imagine liking one more than the obvious "real thing" ...what a strange opinion to have.

I don't even remember much about Carnosaur except what the VHS box looked like and that it came out in 1993 that close to Jurassic Park. But I know I've seen it before...it just must not have left much of an impression either way..

I've been debating if I was going to revisit this or not. I think you just made up my mind. I forgot Chris Pratt was in it as well.

EXORCIST III (1990)

 

The only Exorcist movie that exists after the original. Brad Douriff is amazing as usual. People getting their heads cut off. A priest gets almost skinned. Sometimes I go back and forth about which one I like more, this one or the original. I mean the original is the original but I don't know, there is something about this one that I really like. I can watch this one any time but I have to be in the mood to watch the original. Although, The Exorcist will be making an appearance next week.

Lake Mungo is one of the best horror films I've ever seen. It's common to describe a film as haunting, but Lake Mungo is the rare film I've seen where the term really rings true. I've seen the film several times, but it was only after the summer of Twin Peaks: The Return that I finally drew (surely intentional) parallels between Alice and Laura Palmer. The cinematographic texture has always stuck with me, but the time-lapse and the use of ambient noise now reminds me of nothing so much as the flamboyant editing of The Return. I think that this movie might honestly be the reason I can't connect with jump-scare factories like The Conjuring; I'm more scared by the mere implications of this movie than I am by one hundred scary dolls. This one's a keeper.

I'm a fan of this one, too.  It's a lot of buildup for a momentary payoff, but what a payoff it is!  There is imagery from this movie that is burned into my mind.

CULT OF CHUCKY (2017)

 

Just a lot of fun.  The budget seams are a little more apparent this time out than they were in CURSE, but that’s a fairly minor issue, and the movie overall looks nicely distinctive.  The big draw here is the way in which the series once again transforms itself into something else; no other horror franchise has been as consistently creatively varied as this one, and Don Mancini again takes us into new territory tonally.  CULT feels most like a blend of the “straighter” entries and the “sillier” entries, as elements of both pop up.  It somehow manages to take some elements of its story very seriously, and others not at all, indulging in a meta, almost flippant sensibility that is entertaining, but perhaps is laid on a bit too thick by the end.  It truly does get wild and crazy by the third act in a way that I had a good time with, even though I prefer CURSE’s more down-the-line-scary approach.  Fiona Dourif has a nice energy that she carries over from CURSE, and it’s neat to have Alex Vincent’s Andy back in action in a major way.  This is lightweight, mostly a lark (if a horror movie can ever be called such a thing), but for a DTV offering, this is (mostly) quality, entertaining stuff, and I hope Mancini gets to keep making more in this series.

I started watching "Leatherface" (2017) this afternoon. I got about 30 minutes into it before I paused it to take a nap. So if you have insomnia, pop in "Leatherface."
post #1538 of 1824
10.The Mutilator-this was, whatever.. on Amazon Prime.. decent gore, the girl getting the giant hook downstairs hurr to watch.. the acting is beyond bad, and it plays as it’s original title “Fall Break”.. I wouldn’t watch this again, unless drunk with friends.

11. Suspiria- First Time, likes it, but wished I had seen it younger. I feel that way about a lot of horror. Imagery was fantastic as well as the score

12.-Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original).. it had been awhile. Still excellent. Streamlined, no fat. Franklin one of cinemas most hated characters. Might have to check out 2 soon.

Went ahead and subscribed to Shudder. There seems to be enough on there to justify the trial and a month's payment, at least. Maybe I'll keep it.

Tonight on there I watched Polanski's "Repulsion":



Watched this once in film school, which was a while ago and it fell into a blur with all the other stuff I was watching back then. But there were some things that definitely left an impression over time. It's good, watching it now-- awfully slow build, but once it gets going there are a lot of harrowing images and ideas on display. And as much as I generally resist bringing outside baggage in to watching a picture, you can't help but look back on this one and think about how its themes of sex, trauma and murder are woven into Polanski's life before and after.

But the real question is, would I still want to get with a young Catherine Deneuve, as batshit fucking crazy as she is here--? Yes, yes I would. Hashtag problematic.

Following on DMonkey, I also watched "The Exorcist III". That movie is way underrated. It's too bad Blatty didn't make more movies. He was so good at delivering both wit and scares.

PET SEMATARY (1989)

 

Available on: YouTube, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vudu, iTunes

 

As I said earlier, I see Gage's death through a totally different lens now. I don't think I can watch this again until he's older. I still like Judd and Pascow but everyone else not so much. While seeing Rachel at the end gives us a chance to see how mangled her face is, I still prefer the novel ending where she just puts her hand on his shoulder and says "Darling" We all know it's gonna end badly.

 


HAPPY DEATH DAY (2017)

 

Available on: Movie theaters

 

The killer's motive is dumb as shit. Now that I got that out of the way, I quite enjoyed this. More a thriller than a horror movie but I won't hold that against it. I do almost wish it would have ended that next to last time when she just really nailed the day but of course, there was definitely a circumstance that precluded that from happening. I did enjoy the line, "His name is Carter. No we didn't sleep together, but if I make it through this day, I'm going to have his babies."

 

 

IT (2017)

 

Available on: Movie theaters

 

This was the fourth time I've seen this and I still love it. Yes, Pennywise is scarce, but he's pretty great everytime he shows up. The kids are obviously the best part of the movie and the part in the sewers where Kylo Hockstetter comes face to face with all the dead kids is genuinely creepy. I like the nod to the novel with the I <3 Derry balloon. I wonder if we'll get Adrian Mellon in the sequel or not. Also Bev goes hard, cracks her dad and busts Pennywise up twice.

I watched the rest of "Leatherface." A good chunk of it isn't really a horror movie, but more of an escaped-lunatics-on-the-run-movie. Then there's a weird sex scene that rips off "Nekromantik" of all movies. Stephen Dorff is delightfully unhinged as a sheriff on the edge. And there's some nifty splatter. The twist involving who Leatherface is kind of obvs, but whatevs.

I had seen Krampus in the theater on opening weekend. I loved it! This was the third viewing since and I STILL love it. One thing I noticed more so this time around is that Adam Scott has become quite the actor. He's great in this. The little boy is great, too. The art direction is aces. Its truly scary in parts and in other parts even, disturbing. It does exactly what a good horror movie should do, make ya uncomfortable; make ya feel a little off. Its nicely filmed, too. Some of the lighting is really good. Creature effects are pretty damn great in this, too. 

 

 

 

Ghost Story:  First saw this oh so many years ago. I'm re-reading the book right now. My annual/semi-annual reading of Ghost Story. Been doing this since I first read the book around 1980. I'm not kidding. Its one of my all-time favorite books. And this movie did not do it ANY FUCKING JUSTICE. Except for Alice Krige who was born to be Alma Mobley/Eva Galli. The tone of this movie is ALL over the place. Quite a bit of it is due to the music; which sometimes can be too loud and obvious. Man, they really did miss the mark by several hundred yards, with this movie. 

 

 

 

The Babysitter (2017): Oh man, had so much fun with this. What helps is the relationship between Bee and Cole. I really liked Robbie Amell's performance. One of my favorites in the movie. He's so sinisterly over-the-top that it was fun and you could tell he was having a blast. I could tell everyone was having fun in this. Also, Cole's parents. Totally dug them. Some good, fun gore and kills, too. I had this movie looping through the evening to keep me company as I worked. I think I'll do it again tomorrow. 

 

 

What Lies Beneath: Forgot I gave this a watch (my first. I have never seen this before) earlier this month. Uh..didn't really like it. I don't believe Ford's character going from loving husband to a adulterer wacko. And I didn't get any sense of chemistry between Ford and Pfeiffer.  This goes into the list of "Zemeckis Films I Don't Like" which is growing by leaps and bounds. 

 

 Demon Knight: Annual watch. Because this movie will never get too old or boring. I will always dig this movie. Period. End of discussion.

RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 3 (1993)

 

Available on: Blu, DVD, YouTube, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vudu, iTunes

 

It's the last full week of October so it's time for the favorites to come out. While I like ROTLD 2, this is one is right behind the first one in terms of quality. I like that they took the storyline from the first one where they have the desiccated zombie strapped to the morgue table and she says that brains keep the pain of being dead away. Julie leans into this method quite thoroughly and possibly has one of my favorite villain designs if you can really call her a villain. The only sour note for me is Curt's characterization, like come on dude, you're cornered in the sewer, people are trying to kill you, and your girlfriend is cashing checks and breaking necks and your crying about it. Then he's all I'm not leaving her, have you seen her buddy? I turned to my wife and said sorry honey but if that happened to you I'd put you down. Directed by Brian Yuzna, his fingerprints are all over this. Like Re-Animator things just keep getting worse, and worse. The zombie designs and effects are also really good in this one. I like the variety of looks we get.

What can I say about this that others haven't already said and would probably say better? Carpenter directed the hell out of this. The creature effects work is fantastic, even by today's standards and it's pretty much a master class in paranoia and fear. So do we think either Childs or MacReady was infected at the end? I saw a new interview with Keith David from two days ago where he says that a lot was made of the fact that every time Russel says something at the end you can see smoke coming from his mouth from the cold but nothing from Childs when he speaks. He said it could either be from him being closer to the fire or the wind but he is interested if that was done in post and wants to ask Carpenter about it. 

 

If anyone wants to see that interview you can watch it here.

I finally saw Romero's "The Crazies." I wasn't crazy about it. It's mostly a bunch of bad haircuts being chased around a greenbelt by guys in gas masks.

2) Street Trash
3) Nightmare City
4) Happy Death Day
5) I Drink Your Blood
6) The Deliberate Stranger

The remake of The Crazies is surprisingly effective.

Not going to lie. I like the remake of the Crazies better than the original.

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4: THE DREAM MASTER (1988)

 

Available on: Blu, DVD, YouTube, Amazon Video, Vudu, Google Play, iTunes, and Syfy Channel today at 4

 

The last somewhat competent Nightmare until New Nightmare. Is Freddy in pure jokester mode here, sure, but I liked the thread of each character transferring a dream power to Alice since dream powers were established as a thing in 3. The guy, Andres Jones, playing Alice's brother while looking like a young David Boreanaz is not good. The stand-in with the wig the use for Alice when shooting the nunchuck scene from behind is not just bad but laughingly bad. Still though, I tend to watch 3 and 4 pretty close together. 3 will be coming soon since it's the superior movie in every way.
