This is what I'm planning to do, as I did with my blog-a-thon last year. I already have my flicks lined up, which I plan to take on alphabetically. I'm finishing the month off by watching Rosemary's Baby on Halloween, having never seen it yet.

I have been sticking to the same every year; Raimi, Romero, Carpenter...any of the recent remakes I didn't hate.

But this year because of my budget (and tastes coincidentally) I'll be digging into the old, crusty, forgotten ones. I picked up a double feature with Carnival of Souls and Horror hotel. I also have The Last Man on Earth with The Last Woman on Earth.

Fortunately there's a plethora of bundled horror "classics" readily available. Has anyone bought the 4 Film Favorites of Dracula? That's one I might be getting for a good price.

i'll rewatch Halloween on blu ray, which I've owned for 6+ months and have yet to watch. I may also give The Howling and Candyman another try

i also plan to watch a bunch of DVDs i bought over the past few months but have been too busy to watch. Grave, The Cellar Door, Rage, Ed Gein, Wind Chill, We All Scream for Ice Cream, Terror of Frankenstein, Rest Stop, Severance, The Eye 2, Pyscho 2 3 and 4, Triangle, Rose Red, The Changling, etc

Im buying cheap DVDs way faster then i can watch them, and plan to catch up this month

I get a lot of films and then it can take me up to five years to finally get around to watching them.

So far I've watched Frozen and The Ugly.

Frozen I gave 3.5/5 and The Ugly I gave 4.5/5 (What a film, WOW!). I'll have reviews on my site and on MFC tomorrow.

Dawn of the Dead
The Descent
Nightmare on Elm Street (orig)
Hellraiser

Some of the horror films in the pile that's stacked up which I intend to watch and will likely add more:
The First Power
Needful Things - TV Cut
Night Child
The Night God Screamed
Piranha 2: The Spawning - Director's Cut
Possessed
Possessed 2
Sharktopus
Soultaker

I'll probably throw in some rewatches of ones I love as well, Near Dark and Re-Animator being two of them.

I think my halloween celebration peaked early. I finally saw The Changling, which is good, but what I'm really floored by is the Psycho sequels, 2-4. i'm surprised these aren't talked about more, considering how fantastic the production, writing, and acting (especially by Anthony Perkins) is in all 3. I'm now under the impression that Psycho is the best horror franchise, and I'm eager to rewatch the original, now that I know so much more about the Bates family and their property.

check your nearest Big Lots. I got the 3 movies for $6 (2 disks).

i think i'd rate them

2: 9
3: 8
4: 7

i watched a few more

The Cellar Door - 4 kept me entertained despite being generic and amateur
The Girl Next Door - 6 really neat suburban story but the pace is too quick (i never thought i'd say that about a movie but its true here)
House - 7 loved this one. starts slow but becomes as entertaining as Evil Dead 2. great monsters and zany, dreamlike situations
The Gate - 7 another offbeat 80s comedy/horror with great monsters and practical special effects
The Janitor - 5 a bad movie with a few hilarious/wtf moments. worth watching for those alone, and a must watch for people who like 'bad' movies
Triangle - 9 just a fantastic thriller


what are you guys watching?

Halloween III: Season of the Witch! A lot of people don't like this movie because it doesn't have Michael Myers in it. But I really enjoy that movie so much so that I put together a Halloween III fan page on facebook if anyone is interested in joining! I wanted to pay tribute to what I think is a very under appreciated and misunderstood movie. Search "Halloween III" in facebook and it should come up. Or click here: https://www.facebook.com/HalloweenIiiSeasonOfTheWitch
Thanks!!!

If this is the Kiwi movie then good choice. You may also want to catch Flatmates Wanted and Belief

Halloween night we got down with

Redd Inc - three degrees of awesomeness

[Rec] 3: Genesis - a bride with a chainsaw, hell yes!

The Devil Inside - not sure why this one has such a bad rep, the ending is abrupt but well conceived given the development of the plot lines.

Halloween - JC original, a must watch every Halloween

Trick 'N Treat - such good fun, reminds me of those old horror comics.

Seems Pirates and Zombies were the outfits of choice this year, plenty of treats given away (we did little bags of toys and chocs this year), and quite a few things left over to keep the team running through our movie marathon.

About to move to another Country, job requirement, hope they do Halloween there as well.
