You crazy for this one, Watrick!


I'm not going to re-open the Scream Stream thread just to say it, but I wish I'd gone with my gut instinct and replaced both of the lovely modern haunting/possession movies with Feeding Frenzy and Dude Bro Party Massacre 3.

"Here's a big, beautiful avatar for someone"


I think a lot of it's being the scariest was more with my experiences. I could relate to that panic that being 'outnumbered' in a correctional facility can cause. I also watched it late at night on my laptop with headphones on , in the dark. I also had low expectations, so I think it was a combination of all that. Obviously I have much better scary movies on that list, but for some reason AB stuck with me for about a day.

Y'all have some bad rear end lists. I recon it was a good movie watching experience for all involved.

I swore I was going to not watch any horror movies for a few weeks, but is aw the Screambox app on my ps4 and signed up for the trial. I ended up watching Necromantic. No more movies.

It's probably the scariest movie I watched, except the 'squeezy' parts in The Descent and As Above, So Below. It lost a lot of its power when I had time to think about how poorly defined the characters were, and the asylum was.

Still, I have permanently added "Never work in an asylum" to my list of life plans.

Not as impressive as some of y'all's lists, but almost all of these were new to me, and I was really proud that I watched a nice variety - some new stuff, some classics, slashers/anthologies/"kid" horror movies. Additionally, I watched the entirety of Scream: The TV Series, listened to many many many hours of the absolutely excellent and terrifying "knifepoint horror" podcast, and found time to play Riff-Raff in a local production of Rocky Horror. So as far as I'm concerned, a really successful October (I HAD SO MUCH FUN WATCHING THESE)!!!

Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and FOURTEEN KARAT GOLD!!!

Warning: SU Season 3 Spoilers


1. Monster Squad

2. Halloween III: Season of The Witch

3. The Stuff

4. Cybernetics Guardian

as mentioned before I didn't watch much this season(besides these I got about halfway through Q: The Winged Serpent, and about 15 minutes into The Burning), of these I'd say Monster Squad was the most competently made(although it could have used an extra 20 to 40 minutes to flesh some things out and have Mummy and Gill-Man be more relavant), but they are all pretty fun, heck I'm surprised no-one's tried to do a reboot of The Stuff, it practically sells itself(heck the only real changes I'd make for a modern version outside of necessary updates and making it slightly faster paced would be having The Stuff putting up more of a fight during the raid towards the end, and not having Chocolate Chip Charlie become a Stuffy offscreen and get killed due to it)

a friend of mine Bogleech likes to comment that he considers the Halloween season to last between the 1st of August(around the time that Halloween stuff starts showing up in some stores), to sometime in January(due to both him not being the biggest fan of Christmas, and cause he runs a Creepypasta contest between November and New Years and January is when he reveals the results), so I might take a note from him, and spend the time between now and then trying to fill out my original 31 films plan, possibly go even further

32. The Haunting
Haunted House

Great film. I found all of the characters to be extremely charming and fun to watch. All of the random stuff packing every room along with the "off" geometry and the way the rooms are all fully lit up made the film feel disorienting when the tension ratchets up and the camera work becomes more dynamic. I wasn't expecting this to be more of a psychological horror than a ghost film, but I think I found it even more affecting if you think of the film as being from her perspective. 9/10

Bonus

Tetsuo the Iron Man

I've seen this a couple times, but I got to see it in theaters. This is absolutely the best one. All robo drill dicks, maniacal laughing and screaming. Tetsuo definitely looks the coolest in the first one. Didn't spot the homosexual subtext the first couple times I watched this somehow (New World, attacking his girlfriend, then first running away from and then accepting Shinya into himself and combining into a huge mechanized penis). The tiny theater was a full house and suitably groaned, gasped, laughed, and even clapped at the end. Great experience. It's simplistic, trashy, loud, disorienting and frankly a bit annoying but I quite like this film. 8/10

33. Carnival of Souls
Woman Driven Insane | Dilapidated Carnival

This film is extremely pretty but a bit slow and meandering, though I think this was the point. At its heart it is another film about someone slowly losing their grip on reality, but here she's losing or rejecting her connection to humanity. It's 100% more coherent than Messiah of Evil, which is a feature-length badly acted fever dream, but it didn't have as many memorable moments for me. 7/10

34. Eyes Without A Face
Skin Grafts | Evil Science Dad | Lots o' Dogs

I am pretty happy I got to see this one within the same month as Skin I Live In. That would make an interesting double feature. I went in not knowing anything about it but I quite enjoyed it. The special effects really are pretty great, and the girl is so interesting to watch. She seems to float around the mansion like a ghost. 8/10

35. Psycho
OG Slasher!!!

An extremely solid, superbly-acted thriller with swerve after swerve. 8/10

Best Villagers / Townsfolk: Calvaire
Best Aliens: The Cat (Lao Mao) 1992
Best Psycho (male): Black Christmas
Best Psycho (female): Play Misty For Me
Best Tetsuo: Tetsuo the Iron Man
Worst Film: Hellevator

My final tally including the horror movie marathon I went to Halloween night which technically went from Midnight to noon Nov. 1st, but Halloween isn't over until you go to sleep so gently caress it.

19. Trick 'r Treat (2007)
20. Halloween (1978) (rewatch)
21. Halloween II (1981)
22. Night of the Demons (1988)
23. Pumpkinhead (1988)

You're selling yourself short by one movie here. Unless you went to a different marathon then I did that just happened to have a nearly identical lineup, they showed The Hitcher in between Pumpkinhead and The Changeling.

I think Aerobicide (aka Killer Workout) was my favourite horror film that I watched in October.

I've had a weird run of watching films that prominently feature aerobics lately. First was Death Spa, then Ninja III, and then Aerobicide. I guess I should really re-watch that copy of Linnea Quigley's Horror Workout sometime to finish it all off.

I think my favourite part of Aerobicide (and there's lots of favourite parts) would be the way that aerobics classes just continue unabated at RONDA'S WORKOUT despite the fact that I think around six people get murdered horrifically in a tiny two room studio over the course of about a week.

Time for a little robot chauvinism!

I was nauseous and needed a break so I skipped the first half of The Hitcher to get air/breakfast. I saw the second half but not enough to really say I watched it. Besides, from what I saw it was really more of an action/thriller anyway. Maybe the horror elements are more in the first half.

Hate your wack-rear end theaters.

Between the two Drafthouses and the indie theater downtown, there are literally three theaters in my entire metropolitan area that do repertory screenings (other than Fathom Events stuff) and one of them is over an hour away and only does them at midnight on weekends

e: and the indie theater also takes one weekend a month off from showing actual cool things to do Rocky Horror and The Room, I did see A Clockwork Orange and Drive there (like a year apart) but the pickings are usually pretty slim

I thought overall it was pretty great. With most compilations, of course, there are some weak ones but I didn't particularly feel like there were any duds. The standout to me was Peter Tscherkassky's Outer Space. That was my first exposure to him and I'm excited to check out his new movie The Exquisite Corpus where he applies the same style to vintage porn.

The Virgin Sacrifice was also pretty wild and probably my second favorite. It went from fairly normal to batshit crazy pretty fast. Ursula. while pretty 'conventional' compared to the rest had a pretty cool fever dream feel to it that I liked. Tuning the Sleep Machine and Journey into the Unknown I felt were the weakest. Like with Outer Space they also used pre-existing footage to make a sort of collage and while they looked nice they didn't really do much for me.

Dawn of an Evil Millenium was funny and a good choice to end the set with. I like my low-brow art as much, if not more, than the high-brow poo poo and seeing these goofballs running around LA with gallons of fake blood was a good palate cleanser.
