    Default Halloween Horror-thon 2022 (Snacks Not Included)

    It's hard to believe it's that time of year again, but here we are! What's everyone planning on watching this season?

    So far, I kicked off my Halloween watching with X and Extraterrestrial.

    I want to watch X for sure, and there's that Danish film Speak No Evil that's making a lot of waves in the indie circuit.

    Apparently I need a Shudder subscription to watch the latter, so I'm thinking I'll sign up for the free 7 day trial and watch as many films as I can lel.
    Let's get a little crazy.

    Shudder is worth the subscription in my opinion. It's a nice streaming service that makes some pretty decent original material and cool documentaries.

    The X reminded me; has anyone seen a movie called Xtro?

    - and summoned the waves to carry her spell

    I watched X because the preview for Pearl really intrigued me. X was okay for a basic slasher, but I'm looking forward to Pearl.

    This year I've filled out a calendar with a smorgasbord of movies. The idea being that a movie is already picked out for every day. That way I don't have to figure out what to watch, just when to fit it in. I've also got a full plate of tv. House of The Dragon, The Rings of Power, Survivor, Amazing Race, and Big Sky are the current shows I'm watching. I was going through Murder She Wrote, but that's going to have to wait for now. And then a lot of fall activities with the family. October is going to fly bye in the best way!

    Leading up to Oct.

    Damn, Matt. You've got it all mapped out.

    I've been watching a lot of movies the past couple weeks because I've already got the Halloween itch. So far, I've watched It Follows, The Wretched, Paranormal Activity, Get Out, Hell House, and Elvira's Haunted Hills.
    These were all first-time watches for me.

    I'll have to add The Wretched to my future watchlist, the trailer looks pretty enticing. It Follows was great. I thought Get Out was cool. I really dig found footage, and Para and Hell House are some of my favorites. (Stay the hell away from the hell house sequels though! ) Haven't seen that Elvira movie either.

    I was probably around the same age, and pretty much everything in it shocked me.

    I'd watch Xtro, but it looks like it might be hard to find. It's uploaded to dailymotion, buuuuut, not sure what else you get by being on that website. (spam)

    Any recommendations on where to watch or purchase?

    I watched Spirit Halloween: The Movie the other night and thought it was pretty good. It's a light-hearted Halloween movie that's good when you want to satisfy a spooky craving rather than all-out horror stuff.

    You've got some good viewing ahead of you! And I love that you included a "Halloween Cooldown."

    I just watched Planet Terror and Extraterrestrial for the first time within the past few weeks. And Hush is wonderful.

    You really are killing it so far...and it's not even October yet!

    I'm gonna add The Wretched to my list, too.

    The Wretched is a good one to watch when you want something in the horror genre without really getting too scared or invested. I enjoyed it.
    Get Out was really good. It definitely did a great job of making me uneasy. I've always enjoyed Jordan Peele's comedy, but Get Out made me want to check out his other works.

    Oh! I forgot to add that I watched Little Evil on Netflix. I'd highly recommend that for anyone wanting a funny horror movie.

    The Wretched was a good one for when you want a light scare. I'd watch it again.

    Yeah, Matt. The Elvira movies are pretty fun.

    Sept 27 Resident Evil Welcome To Raccoon City *$$$ This was the version of R.E. that should have been made before. This had action, but it wasn't an action film like the previous series of movies.

    Sept 28 Ghostbusters II $$$ Vigo vs Statue of Liberty. Bill Murray is classic.

    I watched Rob Zombie's The Munsters last night, and it was...not great. Zombie has a great visual eye, but seems to really have a hard time writing a coherent and well paced screenplay.

    The first episode of Queer for Fear on Shudder was excellent. Bodies Bodies Bodies was not.
    Watched The Storm of the Century for the third time. First was original air dates by myself. Second was late 2000s with my best friend and this last time with my BF. It's aged well and remains one of King's best screenplays.

    Reviews:

    Sept 29 The Puppetmaster * $$$ I could definitely imagine this being a book and enjoying said book a lot. It had a lot going for it in weird magic, big mansion, creepy puppets. I think I would have enjoyed the heck out of it when I was younger.

    Sept 30 Rawhead Rex * $$$ I'd compare it to John Carpenters Prince of Darkness. They aren't at the top of any lists, but they have some great moments in them that lift the whole movie up.

    Oct 1 Mirrors * $$$ One of those J-Horror films with a vengeful spirit. Keifer has a strange way of acting. Mirrors in the dark have always creeped me out, so I thought it was good.

    Oct 2 Demons * $$$$ This was perfect for me. Simple story, blood, sparse comedy, demons, and plenty of weirdness.

    Oh yeah, also watched a couple with the kids. The Haunted Mansion (fri night) and Muppets Haunted Mansion (sat night).

    The Haunted Mansion was pretty cool. My daughter really liked it. Although, it had some language my kids aren't used to hearing. I'd never seen it. There's a new one coming if you hadn't heard.

    Muppets Haunted Mansion was altogether boring. Had a tough time keeping the kids in the room.
