Still trying to get around to watching a real horror movie. The closest I've come in the last couple of weeks is Kolchak: The Night Stalker on Netflix. Haven't seen it in years. So far, I'm about 12 episodes into it. Just finished watching "Mr. R.I.N.G." which, in spite of being a decent episode, has one of the worst robot costumes I've ever seen.

10/01 (Movies: 1)



Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987)

A mix of cheesy and solid f/x, with notes to Carrie, The Exorcist and, call me crazy but I'm pretty sure about this: Sixteen Candles in two brief shots.
Entertaining but not perfect supernatural slasher sequel. 3.5/5

Kicked off my October (or should that be Schlock-Tober?) with "Man-Thing" (2005), based VERY loosely on the classic Marvel comic.

Small | Large


Rather than a gentle, mindless, empathic creature as he was in the comics, this "Man-Thing" is the vengeful guardian spirit of an Indian tribe's sacred swamp lands, who deals with intruders by tearing them limb from limb.

Somewhat useless as a comics adaptation but as a plain ole nothin' special creature feature it was pretty decent.

So far this month I have watched:

Shivers The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact.

Killjoy Say what you will about this film, I don't care. I think it's so funny and stupid. I love it.

I just watched CHUD.  I had never seen CHUD before.  I'd seen CHUD 2:  Bud the CHUD, but never the first one. It was really good. 

I also saw Night of the Demons 2.  It wasn't as good as the first, but still had a nice Halloween Haunted House feel to it.

Never see CHUD, but really want to as I found the first one to be enjoyable

Last night, watched Hocus Pocus (1993) and Wrong Turn (2003). Discussed them in the Recent Viewings thread. Hocus Pocus was a pretty good kids Halloween fantasy/comedy. It kind of reminded me a bit of Ernest Scared Stupid but without Ernest of course and with witches instead of trolls. Wrong Turn was pretty much a modern mix of the Hills Have Eyes and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, not as good as either, but it had its moments. It did move along very well and was surprisingly gruesome. It actually proved slightly better than I expected it to be.

10/02 (Movies: 2)



Mentally unstable Vicky returns home after spending five years in the nuthouse. Once accused of murder Vicky herself is now the target of a murderous plot.
Doris Wishman's inept home-made psychedelic slasher is a prime example of bad movie making, mostly because the original print was nearly destroyed in a fire. Wishman patched things up ala Ed Wood and the results are pure hilarity. 5/5

Dead Birds (2004) - Back in the Civil War era, some outlaws pull off a bank robbery and then hide out in an abandoned plantation house.  Little do they know the terror that awaits them mwahahahahahaha.  Really good movie with well developed characters, tons of scary atmosphere, and a real feeling of dread throughout.  4.5/5.

Watched the first three films from the Universal Horror Classic Movie Archive Collection. These were The Black Cat (1941), Man Made Monster (1941) and Horror Island (1941). I discussed these in the Recent Viewings thread. Black Cat and Horror Island are old dark house comedies while Man Made Monster is a science fiction horror story. Of the three, Black Cat was the best film of this bunch mainly because it features such an host of familiar faces and stars including Basil Rathbone, Bela Lugosi, Gale Sondergaard, John Eldredge, Alan Ladd, Gladys Cooper but the main stars here are actually Borderick Crawford and Anne Gwynne. Sadly Lugosi and Ladd are given little more than bit parts although Lugosi's is at least a bit more memorable. Black Cat has some fun moments but it pales next to The Cat and the Canary and is never quite as ominous as it wants to be. Man Made Monster had the potential to really be something special and star Lon Chaney Jr. tries and does manage to create a very sympathetic lead character in Dynamo Dan the Electrical Man. In the end though it falters as it talks about stuff happening off-screen that sounds far more exciting than anything on screen and the symbolism of drug addiction, here in terms of electrical jolts, never fully quite gets across as well as perhaps it might have. Still it's miles ahead of future Chaney remake of sorts Indestructible Man. Finally Horror Island is a kind of mish mash of many genres (adventure, horror, comedy) but mainly it's an old dark house comedy with a mystery Phantom who may or may not be the killer. It's never quite satisfying although it does leave you guessing as to the killer and is a little unpredictable overall. In the end, it's just a bit too confusing and the only thing it truly has going for it as its likable lead characters played by d**k Foran, Fuzzy Knight, Peggy Moran and Leo Carrillo.

I watched the original Frankenstein (1931) tonight.  I really haven't seen it in years, and for some reason, thought I would be bored with it.  Instead, I really enjoyed it.

 I had never really taken the time to notice before, but even in black and white, the make-up on Boris Karloff was outstanding. And as Dr. Frankenstein's creation, BK was perfect.

 I had always thought of the "creature" as being nothing more than a murderous, lumbering hulk, but Karloff gave him a "soul" of sorts.  Without uttering a word,  the actor managed to convey a wellspring of emotions in the creature using only facial expressions and gutteral sounds.  He was truly a "monster" to be both despised and pitied.

OCTAMAN (1972) Terrible semi-remake of THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON featuring one of the goofiest lookin' monsters in movie history (courtesy of a very young Rick Baker). You'd think Octaman would crush his victims in his hideous tentacles but he instead slaps 'em silly with them.

Here's a great VHS cover for OCTAMAN (why isn't it OCTOMAN?) that for some reason features a Skekix (whatever) from THE DARK CRYSTAL:
