    You know it!

    Of course you have to watch:

    Halloween (only the original)
    The Thing (Carpenter)
    Prince of Darkness
    Sleepy Hollow
    Return of the Living Dead


    hmmm, drawing a blank...what else?

    I work till 2, but as soon as I'm home... it's Halloween movie time.

    My list is as follows: (ones I own)

    A few episodes of Angel/Buffy
    Final Destination 1/2
    Ghostbusters 1/2
    Mothman Prophecies (maybe)
    The Others
    Sixth Sense
    Spongebob Squarepants: Halloween
    Stir Of Echoes
    The Thing (John Carpenters version)
    Unbreakable

    Would like to get/rent:

    Halloween (and some subsequent sequels)
    A ton others actually, but I just can't think of 'em...

    We're having a Halloween party, and at the end those brave enough to stay late will enjoy The Exorcist in our theatre...

    We watched a few horror flicks this month...

    Fear Dot Com (garbage)

    Dream Catcher (better than I expected)

    House of 1,000 corpses (kinda retro-style fun)

    28 Days Later (Good, but no Dawn of the Dead)

    Dang it, there's one other one but I can't remember what it was...

    This is my first halloween with my front projection setup, so I had to throw a movie marathon. The three I've got coming from Netflix are:

    1) 28 Days Later
    2) The Exorcist: Restored Version
    2) Nightmare on Elm Street

    Believe it or not, I've seen none of these! It seems that most of my guests haven't either! I might try to pick up Psycho or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre as backups before friday. We're hoping to make it through 3+ movies, and the object is to scare ourselves silly. I'd certainly appreciate suggestions for alternative movies that will leave us mentally scarred!

    I'm doing the 13 Halloween Movie Challenge and I am saving my last 3 movies to watch on Halloween. They include :

    Psycho (Orginal)
    Alien
    Halloween

    and.....


    If I have time, they are showing Pet Sematary at our local theater to celebrate Halloween. That movie had a major effect on me when I first saw it. I believe I was 8.

    This week I've watched Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter, Cat People, The Curse of the Cat People, and Carrie. On Halloween I will probably be watching Carnival of Souls and Audition (never seen either), and Night of the Living Dead (which my wife hasn't seen and has demanded we watch).

    I've been trying to watch at least 1 horror movie everyday this week, but on Halloween I'm planning The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror and Halloween (surprise!). I'd watch more but I'm doing the "special Halloween night makeup" at a haunted house again this year.

    Hey Chris, you've got a nice lineup of films there. The Exorcist is without doubt one of the most disturbing films you'll ever see. Just as a warning, if you or any of your guests are sensitive to extremely obscene language, beware. The Exorcist makes pulp fiction look like kidnergarten. Awesome flick though if you have a strong stomach

    I'll be heading to the video store tomorrow afternoon to pick up some movies. I've got about 5 people coming over for the all-nighter so it should be a lot of fun. I'm hoping to get:

    THE OMEN
    LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT
    THE AMITYVILLE HORROR
    TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
    HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES


    I've never seen ANY of these movies before so I'm very much looking forward to it.

    Hillbilly horror tonight at my house, with the following double feature:
    Texas chainsaw Massacre
    The Hills Have Eyes

    None of us have seen Hills, and none of my guests have seen Texas, so it should be fun!

    In the past few weeks I've watched Frailty, The Others, Exorcist III, The Old Dark House, The Raven (1963), The Comedy Of Terrors, House On Haunted Hill, Creepshow, Burnt Offerings, Frenzy, some Twilight Zone episodes, and some Dark Shadows episodes. Tonight I'm hoping to watch some Halloween episodes of Bewitched on tape, Frankenstein, and Bride of Frankenstein.
