The last prize goes to a random drawing of the 20 of us that participated. I used the www.randomizer.org website that was suggested. The list was from 1-20 and was taken from the challengers film list on the first post. Everyone was assigned a number in the order that was from the film list. the winner is: Sandro I will be putting up the "Holiday Challenge" Hope to see some of you in there. I added an idea to it to have the non Christmas people participate.

Funnest year I've had in a while. In all seriousness, my blood pressure dropped to an all time low that final Sunday of October. ...erm, maybe I was being "visited" and didn't know it? :eek:

Well I'm in full Halloween mode now.  Went to Target and Wal Mart last night and picked up some new decorations and a couple of bags of candy corn and creme pumpkins.  Already pulled out the decorations from the Halloween Closet and decked out my man cave.  Just need to go back and purchase the candy selections to load up the candy bowls.  I actually started my Halloween viewing this month, with various horror-themed documentaries.  Right now I'm working my way through the 21-film Hammer Horror Collection released in the UK in 2006.  Are most people returning to the challenge for 2013?

I'll be there.  In fact, I'm up to film 50 as of yesterday.  I started mine August 30th.  :)  Been watching a lot of Dark Shadows and having a ball.  I might be burned out by next month!  But I'll be there...and start over at movie @ movie #1 Tv show #1 on October 1st.  That'll hurt.  :( 

 

I've got to get me a popcorn bowl that looks like a jack-o-lantern on the inside (or something even better).  Haven't yet found one.  using a plain old lame bowl that is unfun once the corn is gun!  I mean gone. 

 

 

I enjoyed the film I won last year.  Legend of Hell's Gate.  I watched it a month or so ago.  Had a terrific western feel, some excellent costuming and props.  The story was the weakest thing about it though.

Absolutely!  October can't come soon enough.

It's getting close.  Since I've been watching stuff since Aug. 30th (just couldn't wait) I thought I'd thrown in my 2013 pre-October Scary Movie Challenge 2013 viewing list on here in case anyone is looking for ideas.  There would be more but I had something come up last week.  Still, I had a great time and Dark Shadows the original TV series has been a joy this year. 

 

Sorry for the lack of notes, but if you want to know anything about any of this just ask.  :)    I'll make some small notes on a few. 

 

August 30

1. Paradise Lost: The Child Murders of Robin Hood Hills (93)- about "The Memphis three" murder trial.  Outstanding, and YES scary. 

 

August 31

2. Paradise Lost 2: Revelations (99?) follow up that covers a lot including the impact of the first doc

3. Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory. (201?) follow up again

4. Scarecrows (1988)

5. Devil's Pass. (2013) -limited release but I was lucky (well not really) to get to see it

6. Omen 3: Final Conflict?. (1981)

 

September 1

7. It Came from Hollywood. (1982) - wonderful old clip movie about classic and cheesy films, horror and otherwise.  

8. Chernobyl Diaries. (2012) - an almost great one.  So many possibilities that don't pan out.  LOVED the setting though.... 

9. Island of Dr. Moreau. (1977)

10. Leviathan. (1989) -this is in a 3 movie set with Lifeforce (different versions I believe than the single DVD) and Burnt Offerings (which is oop in single).  fun to laugh at too.  But I genuinely enjoyed seeing it again. 

11. Dark Skies. (2013) -a bit of a mess

12. The Premature Burial. (1962)

 

September 2

13. The Cube. (1997) -outstanding.  highly recommended

14. V/H/S. (2012) -started out like it wasn't going to be my thing, but it is.  Excellent anthology.  Call me a fan. 

15. Hellraiser IV: Bloodline. (19xx)

16. Stephen King's The Stand. Part 1. (1994)

17. Frozen. (2010) -hard to believe this works as well as it does

 

September 3

18. Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland. (1989) -I have the trilogy.  remember liking this better than part 2 but not as much as the first.  I do love The Boss's sis. 

19. The Frankenstein Theory. (2013) -most important character, a descendant of Dr. Frankenstein, reads like he doesn't believe his own lines.  Hurts this greatly. And the final act is hurt by something that isn't as scary as it should have been. 

20. SK's The Stand. Part 2. (1994)

 

September 4

21. Shadow People. (2013) -didn't work for me.  could have used a better actor in the lead. 

22. SK's The Stand. Part 3. (1994)

23. The Haunted Manson. (2003) -good first half, nice effects, but gets old before it's done. 

 

September 5

24. SK's The Stand. Part 4. (1994)

25. Black X-mas. (2006) -liked a little better than last year but feel they missed what worked in the original and went with something that didn't

1. TV: Outer Limits. "It crawled..."

 

September 6

26. Torso. (1973) -didn't think much of it.  expected more

27. C.H.U.D. (1984) -too much cheese ruins a good thing.  remembered not liking this and was reminded why.  :(  I do have a sequel, CHUD II. 

2. TV: Bewitched. "Strange little visitor"

3. TV: Tales from the Darkside. ""

 

 

 

 

 

September 7

28. Alien Abduction Incident in Lake County. (1998) -glad I got to see this again after so many years.  Scared the beegeebus out of me before

29. Atrocious. (2010) -quite disturbing!  recommended. 

30. Sybil. (1976) -superb performance from Sally Field.  I believe she'll never top this. 

31. Omen IV: The Awakening. (1991) -not as bad as it could have been .  Unintentionally funny in parts. 

32. Rape of the Vampire. (1968)- outstanding atmosphere, little else.  disappoiting over all. 

4. TV: Tales from the Crypt "The Secret"

 

September 8

33. Club Dread. (2004) -liked better this try (bailed on first attempt years ago).  funny.  but just okay

34. The Mummy. (1999) -damn fun film.  first time on blu.  Looks great. 

35. [REC]2 (2009) -excellent.  Had a great time!  I wish I had more like this.  Fans of the first?  Grab it! 

36. The Gate II: Trespassers. (1990) -didn't like this before...actually isn't too bad.  A new DVD would be great. 

37. Horror of Dracula. (1958)  - A+ classic.  won't argue with those who say "best Dracula"

 

September 9

5. TV: Dark Shadows. E1

6. TV: Dark shadows. E2.

38. Silent House (2011) -unique filming style, but otherwise sloppy. 

7. TV: Dark Shadows. E3.

8. TV: Dark Shadows. E4.

 

September 10

39. The Curse. (2005) -very good.  I was hooked as the mystery unfolded.  I really liked the lead actor who was filming the doc.  a tad long.. 

9. TV: Dark Shadows. E5

10. TV: Dark Shadows. E6

11. TV: Dark Shadows. E7

 

September 11

10. TV: Dark Shadows. E8

40. House on Sorority Row. (1982) -disappointed.  so much more could have been done here.  Still, an okay watch that reminds me of similar better films

41. Storm Warning. (2007) -funny at time, disturbing in others.  a bit hokey, but still fun to watch. 

11. TV: Dark Shadows. E9.

 

September 12

12. TV: Dark Shadows. E10.

 

September 13

13. TV: Dark Shadows. E11

42. Village of the Damned. (1995) -I like it.  Nowhere what the orignal was, but still fun to watch.  Alley chews the scenery like a pro.  lol 

43. Burrowers. (2008)

 

September 14

44. Insidious. (2011) -starts lite but soon reminds me of classics, and in a good way.  It's like Poltergeist, but does it's own thing too.  Highly recommended.  I plan to tell mom about this one. 

45. The Cube 2: Hypercube. (2002) -an okay sequel.  The mechanics this time are too complicated, unlike the mind-boggling first film. 

14. TV: Dark Shadows. E12.

15. TV: Dark Shadows. E13.

46. Absolution. (1978) -very good 70s horror film with Richard Burton shining

47. Eating Raoul. (1982) -horrid DVD.  Fun film. 

 

September 15

16. TV: Dark Shadows. E14.

17. TV: Dark Shadows. E15.

18. TV: Dark Shadows. E16.

19. TV: Dark Shadows. E17.

48. The Curse of Frankenstein. (1958) -not quite as good as H of Drac, but darn good anyway

49. Frontier(s). (2007) -just a crazy ride.  I liked it, but it's no classic. 

50. Picnic on Hanging Rock. (1975) -oddly, the same young actor was in Absolution I watched the day before.  Absolutely not planned.  Anyway, gorgeous mysterious film.  I read a little about it and something disappointed me.  Best to watch it first then research. It really is great.

20. TV: DS. E18.

21. TV: DS. E19.

22. TV X-files. S8 "Medusa"

 

September 16

23. TV: The Costa Concordia Caught on Tape -can't recommend this enough. I was on the edge of my seat.  It's mostly passenger footage of the ship sinking.  Just nuts. 

24. TV: Terror at Sea: the Sinking of the Costa Concordia. More interview this time.  Good companion to the other one.  Both on youtube

51. A Nightmare on Elm Street. (2010) -different actors doing the same thing.  it's no classic. 

 

September 17

25. TV: Dark Shadows. E20

26. TV: Dark Shadows. E21

52. The Last Exorcism Part 2. (2013) -it's okay.  I really liked the first film. 

 

September 18

53. Wake Wood. (2010) -funky like film this.  It's works like a bizarre TZ.  I can't see anyone being real disappointed in this unless everything has to be grounded for you

54. Andromeda Strain. (1970) -oh my...long!  so much quirkiness..  still, I enjoyed it.  wonderful old 70s feel like Apes, Westworld, etc (not same material, just the feel of that era of sci-fi.fantasy films)

 

September 19

27. TV: Dark Shadows. E22

55. Phobia (aka, Prang). (2008) -anthology, with the one making it worth the trouble about 4 young men going on an overnight camping/river rafting trip.  That one was excellent, the rest were anywhere from ok to hohum. 

28. TV: Dark Shadows. E23.

56. The Revenge of Frankenstein. (1958) -not my fav hammer. 

 

September 20

29. TV: Dark Shadows. E24

57. Rare Exports: a Christmas Tale. (2010) -really fun!  highly recommended to the curious.  Good sense of humor, and disturbing at times cause it's messin with Santa! 

30. TV: Dark Shadows. E25.

 

September 21

31. TV: Dark Shadows. E26

32. TV: Dark Shadows. E27

33. TV: Dark Shadows. E28

34. TV: Dark Shadows. E29

58. Cold Prey. (2006) -like the homages to The Shining, but this is mostly stupid people doing stupid stuff

59. Bedevilled. (2010) -superb.  if it wasn't for the gore I'd recommend this to a wider audience. 

35. TV: Dark Shadows. E30

60. National Lampoon's Class Reunion. (1982) -really fun. I did sadly get tired near the end.  But it's a fav I've watched for years.  Not quite Animal House, but it'll remind you of it if you just kind of go with it.  Favorite characters are the vampire dude, the devil lady and the blind chick with the seeing eye dog.  Love that! 

 

September 22

36. TV: Dark Shadows. E31

37. TV: Dark Shadows. E32

38. TV: Dark Shadows. E33

39. TV: Dark Shadows. E34

40. TV: Dark Shadows. E35

61. Virgin Spring. (1960) -incredible film.  It was referenced in the credits of Last House on the Left and I see why.  That's not really a spoiler since the film is an entity by itself that no film borrowing from it could match.  and that's a fact. 

62. The Bay. (2012) -this wasn't bad.  it doesn't really reach the height it tried for, but for a horror movie it works.  I like dit. 

41. TV: Dark Shadows. E36

63. Joyride. (2001) -a favorite.  Loved it as usual. 

42. TV: X-Files. S8. "Per Manum"

 

September 23-29

Mostly Dark Shadows. I'm up to 55 or so. 

 

September 28th, also watched "West of Memphis" a doc from Peter Jackson about the West Memphis Three.  That's about 10 hours of docs I've watched on that subject.  I recommend all 4 docs highly.  All are required viewing and will educate you about our justice system.  I've got to loan these to family members asap.
