My September viewings. October is above. Here's my list so far in Sept and it includes some non-horrors. Any questions about them, ask away! I'll start a new one for Oct. * = new to me [SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]Friday, August 31 1. Tcm. 74 * 2. Darkness. Sat., Sept 1 * 3. Night Listener. Really enjoyed this but it felt a bit underdone, incomplete... the interview material on the disc told me there could have been more. * 4. Cropsey. Scary documentary. Get your hands on this! It's more of a slow building creeper than a Blair Witch kind of "what the @#$% is that!!!" * 5. Triangle. That is TZ... this is TZ on dope. Any questions? 6. House of Wax Sun., Sept 2 7. Sunshine. Can't recommend this enough. second viewing...stuff that bothered me years ago when I first watched this no longer... that's funny. 8. Halloween Curse of Michael Myers * 9. Mad Butcher/extras (a something weird DVD) * 10. Apollo 18. better than expected but nothing super duper great. Decent enough idea. Felt like an old 50s space movie on the moon. I liked. Mon, Sept 3 * 11. The Signal. Excellent idea. Really gets nutty in several places. 12. Deadgirl. Extremely creative. Some really good acting. But as the title suggests, very disturbing. * 13. Winter's Bone. Not horror but disturbing all the same. 14. The Man with Two Brains Tues, Sept 4 15. SAW II 16. Sleepaway Camp II * 17. Dead End. took me a bit to catch on to what this was doing. Once I did it's now a fav of mine. LOVED it! Wed, Sept 5 * 18. Daybreakers. Good, but not THAT good. didn't feel as polished as the cast would suggest. Could have used better ideas throughout. 19. High School Big Shot (MST3k) -not horror Thurs, Sept 6 20. Red Zone Cuba. (MST3K) -not horror * 21. Vacancy. Starts very well. The camera work is pretty good. Good acting. Not sure when I started to just laugh at it and have a good time...but that happened. * 22. Torture Garden. very disappointed in this amicus. Fri, Sept 7 * 23. Rose Red (part 1) -disappointing and .... Sat, Sept 8 * 23. Rose Red (part 2) -just so looooooooong without anything actually new to the table. Had King seen stuff like Legend of Hell House? That old Vincent Price film? 24. Night of the Demons * 25. Tunnel. The group moving through a tunnel bits were a bit pedestrian. What they find was really scary though. Some polish, this would have been a classic. It's okay as is. * Stephen King's Nightmares &U Dreamscapes: Umney Sun, Sept 9 26. Danger! Death Ray. (MST3K) -not horror, but damn fun! * 27. Rest Stop 2 (Uncut). Better than expected. I'd say better than the first. Had some excellent laughs among the tension. * 28. Them (aka, Ils). superb. Original French film that was sort of remade. I'll not mention the remake to avoid spoilers, but everyone should see this. Really, I loved it. A new fav. Shocking! * 29. The Fog (2005) Unrated. And underrated if you ask me. I had a good time. No, it's nowhere near the classic original which I feel is nearly equal with JC Halloween. But it is enjoyable. Glad I tookthe chance on it. 30. Return of the Living Dead 31. Child's Play Mon, Sept 10 * 32. Monster. 2003 I'd heard of this performance from the actress and wanted to see it for myself. She really is excellent. * 33. Ssssssss. Starts excellent. Struther Martin is terrific with those snakes! But then it goes completely wonky. I was scratching my head and wondering why MST3K never tackled it. Tues, Sept 11. 34. The Beast of Yucca Flats (MST3K) -hilarity as giant as Tor Johnson's heart. A GREAT time. * 35. Grave Encounters. Extremely disappointed. Lots of people liked this... I was bored. Came off as completely fake and silly. Nothing worked for me on this. And I was in the mood for a movie like this. 36. Jack Brooks Monster Slayer. Gave this a second go around to try and see if it improves with a different mood.. .or at maybe why I didnt like the first time. Still don't care for it. The "hero" Jack Brooks needed to be like Ash (Evil Dead) or the guy from Dead Alive or something like that. He simply isn't likable in any way. Sad really, because it's almost good. Not enough interesting stuff happens. The whole last part of the film in the school just labor from bit to bit. I was so damn glad when the credits rolled. That will probably be it for me on this film. Not worth $3 at Big Lots. Wed, Sept 12. 37. Halloween H2O. I feel this is underrated. San-fran-tastic cast! feels a little short. 38. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) * 39. Home Movies. (2008) another with an excellent idea of watching a family's home movies as strange things unfold. Different from PA (not a ghost movie). really really gets creepy and there's some laughs too. At least I think I was supposed to be laughing. Highly recommended. Thurs, Sept 13. * 40. Sheitan. Loved this! Has a great slow build. The character of Joseph is a delight (among other things). 41. Pitch Black. Fri, Sept 14. Munsters. "Grandpa Leaves Home" * 42. Puppetmaster 1. Bought the 12 movie set Echo Bridge put out with all the Puppetmasters and 3 Killjoy movies. Will probably return since all this is only on 3 one sided discs. A ripoff. That poor transferring job was distracting. don't buy it. The movie was okay. Sat., Sept. 15. 43. Angel's Revenge. (MST3K) -not horror * 44. Innkeepers. weak ending but LOVED the rest. I guess I found the young female character charming. And the guy was funny. and their relationship was fun to watch. The scares were subtle and worked good for a slow build. But then the ending and... nothing really really bad, just kind of "that's it?" So much potential to be a classic. 45. Child's Play 2. Tales from the Darkside. "The Trouble with Mary Jane". Excellent episode of this series. Sun, Sept. 16. * 46. Lake Mungo. Now this is what I"M takin' bout! Crazy documentary about a missing girl. also has those moments "am I supposed to be laughing?". can't recommend this enough. 47. Omen II. * 48. Fight for your Life. * Club Dread. (bailed) - didn't finish this. Stopped watching at the 25 minute mark (stopped laughing some time before that). I'll give it another go in the future. Need silly mood for this, not laughless bastard mode. Mon, Sept. 17. 49. Severence. After Club Dread, this similar but much superior film righted things. Among my most favorites. Had a ball as usual. beats the crap outta of Club Dread's first 25 minutes at least... 50. Transparent Man. (MST3K) Tues, Sept. 18. * 51. Pathology. Holy ....! Unexpectedly great... this was twisted and in a good way. WAY way better than expected. Really gooey and disturbing. Well worth the $3 as Big Lots. Get a copy today. * 52. Below. submarines and something from the great beyond...! OOooooOOOOOooooooo..... pretty good. Wed, Sept. 19. * NBC Cold Cases x2: "Silence in a Small Town"/"Hunting the Unicorn". suitably disturbing real stories. Silent is about a missing high school kid. I was riveted. the narrators speech was odd at points, the the story came accross. The Unicorn one just made me mad. ..I got this set free for ordering Bozo Collection 2 and The Monster from Planet X from oldies.com!! Woo hoo!! * 53. The Host. Not bad. Lot of heart among the laughs and excitement. good monster. I wouldn't say it's anything great though. Thurs, Sept. 20. * 54. Splinter. Crazy monster idea. I don't think I've seen anything quite like that before. The story to carry it works fine, nothing special. But that's enough. Highly recommend. Just expect some gore. 55. Samson Vs. The Vampire Women. (MST3K) Fri, Sept 21. * 56. What lies Beneath. I laughed during many parts of this. It's not a comedy. tee hee! Still, great cast and pretty fun little horror mystery kind of deal. very light weight...your mom would like it. 57. SAW III. I like this first 3. I have 4 and 5 on hand this year, have seen neither. Sat., Sept 22. 58. [/SPOILER] Updated 9/24: ask me about any of these if you'd like! [SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]Sat., Sept 22. * 58. Shivers. * 59. Taking Lives. * 60. Halloween Resurrection. Sun, Sept. 23. * 61. The Man from Planet X. 62. Open Water. 63. Jeepers Creepers. * 64. Jennifer's Body Extended. * 65. Valerie & her Week of Wonders Mon, Sept 24. 66. Night of the Blood Beast. (MST3K) * 67. 28 Weeks Later. Tues., Sept 25. 68. [/SPOILER] And finally... Sept is over. [SPOILER=Warning: Spoiler!]Tues., Sept 25. 68. My Bloody Valentine reboot. * 69. Ju-on 2: The Curse. * 70. Pontypool. Wed., sept 26. Munsters "Herman's Rival" 71. Black Christmas 1974. Thurs, Sept 27. Addam's Family "Wednesday Leaves Home" * 72. Harpoon: the Whale Watching Massacre. 73. Donnie Darko. Fri. Sept 28 * 74. Prey. 75. American Gothic. Sat, Sept 29. 76. Devil Times Five. * 77. Cabin Fever 2. 78. The Brute Man. (MST3K) * 79. Blackbeard. Sun, Sept 30. 80. Legion. * 81. Guardian. 82. Serpent & the Rainbow. * 83. Dog House. [/SPOILER]

Howie, I too like your idea, but I don't think I'd be willing to update both threads. I post on several other Boards, so time is kind of limited for me in that regard. But I do understand why you'd want this change, as the lists can become a bit cumbersome (and I'm easily one of the biggest offenders). For my own part, I would like to be able to continue adding titles to this thread as I watch a given film or show.
Posted September 22 2012 - 03:12 PM
What we could do is use the very first post, mine, which states the rules and have a challengers film list with our names. When you click our names it goes directly to our film list. So where ever your placeholder is at, use that as your film list and I can add a link to it. then any new reply can be discussion. I just don't know how to do a clickable link. I forgot. I watched a movie today, but not adding it to the list since it's not October yet. The Town That Dreaded Sundown Not what I thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be a somber movie. I guess I should have expected what I saw as this is the same director of Boggy Creek II. I think that the narrator isn't necessary and detracts from the film, especially some of the comedic moments.

I think that the narrator isn't necessary and detracts from the film, especially some of the comedic moments.I think parts of that movie are really scary (like the trombone scene) but the comedy (and I use the term loosely) really does hurt the movie. I like the narrator though.

I just figured out how to do url links with just our names. I'll work on it soon. Look for your name links in the very first post This will also be the section when it comes time to do a tally of everyones movie count. So far I only see myself, Malcolm R and JohnStell with official film list(placeholders) Any others?

John, I wrote that I was going to participate (post #2 of 26 above). Should I have done something else? Thanks.

John, I wrote that I was going to participate (post #2 of 25 above). Should I have done something else? Thanks.I'll add you. Sorry. I didn't know if you were going to have another post as a list. I added Travis R, Brian H, BryanH, Radioman970 as well, using your first post as your list Michael Elliot, Bob'OLink and Jason Roer. Let me know if you plan on using your first post as your list.

I'll add you. Sorry. I didn't know if you were going to have another post as a list. I added Travis R, Brian H as wellJohn, Thanks. I'll try to do what's best for the thread. So if I understand this correctly, you don't want posters to clutter up this thread with film / television show lists, right? You'd rather have those titles put in the list that will be arrived at via the link you're setting up under our individual names?

John, Thanks. I'll try to do what's best for the thread. So if I understand this correctly, you don't want posters to clutter up this thread with film / television show lists, right? You'd rather have those titles put in the list that will be arrived at via the link you're setting up under our individual names?Well, really you can do what you want. It's just been expressed that people will find it easier to find the film list and then just use this thread as a discussion for what we see and share our thoughts. Instead of having two threads, I thought this would be the easiest solution. I like it this way, I much rather see this peoples reviews and thoughts about what we see this next month. Give suggestions and what horror blurays to get and so on... Plus if your constantly adding new list to every post, it saves you time from cutting, pasting. Just click on your link and update. I like to look at peoples lists a lot. Always curious to see what people watch on a daily basis. Makes it easier to find. And I added your place list BobO'Link
Posted September 22 2012 - 07:40 PM
Yeah, the list with my titles will be fine for the link. As last year I'm going to just make a list and then mark them as they're viewed. Re: Two Threads I too like the idea but at least it's a suggestion for next year if we all don't die come December.

I think we will be just fine.

You'd rather have those titles put in the list that will be arrived at via the link you're setting up under our individual names?My thinking on the separate thread was to keep long lists out of the general discussion. What John's doing is a good solution and, I feel, will help keep the discussion/reviews on what you've seen more easily digested. I'd think that if you're going to discuss any of those episodes you would still list them as part of your discussion but your *full* list would be the post on the link he's setting up.

I like to look at peoples lists a lot. Always curious to see what people watch on a daily basis. Makes it easier to find. And I added your place list BobO'LinkThis fits my thoughts/reasoning on a separate list thread fairly well. Just to provide an example, I'll put what I watch on a daily basis as a "simple" list in my placeholder post. It'll be a numbered list with the film title, year of release, indicator if a first time viewing, and a simple star rating. I'll share thoughts and/or mini-reviews in new posts to help keep discussions going. It's quick and easy to update the list post and you don't have to jump back and forth from the list to new posts to see the overall picture or how I feel about a film. If my OCD kicks in full bore I'll probably link from the list post to the "review" post so if you look at the list you can get a quick jump to the full thoughts as opposed to the star rating if you wish. I also added the link to my list post in my signature line. If you don't have viewing signatures disabled you'll see it on every post I make for another quick, easy, way to see the full list.

My thinking on the separate thread was to keep long lists out of the general discussion.I agree. I'd prefer that people maintain their on-going list in a single, early post, then just make new posts for reviews of specific films watched. Some of the lists get so long they really clutter up the thread when there's a 100+ film list added to every new review posting.
The purpose of an education is to replace an empty mind with an open mind.

I'm willing to lay down a $1000 bet that my soon-to-be-3-year-old son would win this contest due to how many Scooby Doo episodes he watches a day. I think I had to sit through eight this morning until I finally convinced him to turn them off so we could watch some football. I did just order him about eight of those Scooby movies. I figured if I had to watch the dog each day I could at least get the movies to count here.

Wow, Michael, three(!) already?? I'm pretty sure that little guy saw more movies then most before he could even talk.

Mine look forward to when their mom has a meeting or something because they know I'll put a disc of Scooby Doo on for them with little hesitation. They are looking forward to the new movie Big Top Scooby due in October and the first half of the second season of Mystery Inc. due in November. I'm sure the former will be part of my October scary movie challenge viewing.
