I've got five more movies to watch by Halloween to make it to 100, and I'm home sick with a cold today, so looks like I'll be able to fit them in a lot easier than expected.

24. Wild Beasts (1984) ???/5
Image

Okay, Duran Duran should be charged with a CRIMINAL OFFENSE for not licensing the footage of a cheetah running full-tilt through European cityscapes for the “Wild Boys” video. For shame, Simon. PCP is inexplicably dumped into a zoo’s water supply; the cage mechanisms malfunction and Jurassic Park-style mayhem ensues. I can’t even rate this one due to the real-life animal cruelty involved (those poor rats) but holy shit does this thing move and is occasionally sublime. Relentlessly batshit, entertaining, and deeply troubling.



25. Hotel Transylvania (2012) 2.5/5
Image

Holy fucking shit did I cackle like a madman at the Slipknot joke. This is perfectly okay, though I find the messaging in it a bit trad and stale. Really fun character animation, though. All watched for the Blank Check podcast.



26. Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015) 3/5
Image

An improvement over the first one. It’s a fun family film. Mel Brooks is a welcome addition. The first 10 minutes of this movie encompasses a span of like 7 years. I don’t know what else to say about this.



27. The Lost Boys (1987) 4.5/5
Image

There’s a two-day break in between HT2 and this. In between, I threw my annual giant fucking Halloween party. On Sunday afternoon, I needed to just lay down on the couch and not think, so I revisited one of my absolute favorites. God bless this sweaty homoerotic music video. One time I got so high that I watched Lost Boys twice in a row cos it’s so fucking good. That’s Lost Boys for you.



28. Tales From The Darkside: The Movie (1990) 3/5
Image

Rewatch, first time in a long while. I used to really not like this one, but it landed much better this time out. My problem is that it just never really takes flight. First segment is fun and has a great cast but never really starts spinning its wheels. Cat segment is delightful. Gargoyles is just…very flatly directed, though a good story. Wraparound with Debbie Harry is actually the best. I’m glad I don’t hate this one anymore, though.



29. Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice (1992) 3/5
Image

Every bit as dumb and silly as the first one, but not having to stick with a bare bones short story lets this one breath a bit and just do what it wants. He Who Walks Behind The Rows really is the shittiest deity, though. One of the schlubbiest protagonists ever.



30. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) 3/5
Image
This time, it’s on a boat. Time to watch Paranorman after these. It really bugs me that Johnny apparently doesn’t want Mavis to turn him into a vampire. *fart*

Tron opened the following week :)

That monthly lineup is so sick.

92. Isolation
Image
Seen it described as "Alien on a farm", which is apt I guess. Not a super easy watch for those who can't handle on screen animal death (not real... it's not that kind of movie, thank god). This one is all character and atmosphere, with a setting (waterlogged Irish farm) that dominates. Hadn't watched this one in a while, so was happy to see that the cast of then largely unknowns included Ruth Negga, Essie Davis (Babadook), and Sean Harris (Solomon Lane from M:I). All this movie lacks is a great monster (well conceived, poorly executed). Not the most fun horror film but if you want something wet and miserable and oppressive and just something pretty well made, give it a shot.

93. Going to Pieces:The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film
Image
Actually did a rewatch of Ouija:Origin of Evil for #93 (friend watching Haunting of Hill House who hadn't seen Flanagan's other stuff, so we watched it real quick) but I already logged it a couple of weeks ago. So we'll skip to this clipshow doc instead. Extremely scattershot history of slasher films up to about 2005. Some good talking heads, great clips, but way too cursory for the most part. Slashers were in their "torture porn" (still hate that phrase) height when this was made, so there's some talk about that. Doc is a fun waste of time and not bad as a primer though it weirdly ignores a few essential evolutions of the genre... like, it talks about Peeping Tom and early giallos as influences, but then never mentions Chainsaw Massacre and breezes by Black Christmas. Just bizarre.

94. Scream
Image
This month has been a little more slasher heavy than normal for me. Figured I'd cap it off with a rewatch of the Scream franchise. The original remains a classic. It wasn't the first meta slasher with comedy and a twisty plot, but it is still the best to balance all those elements.

95. Scream 2
Image
Alright. Have the first one memorized, but not so much the sequels. Hadn't seen this one in at least 10 years. Don't love it, though I had more fun watching this time around for it's cast (Buffy, Raylan Givens, etc). Forgot how fast they cranked this one out after the first... came out less than a year after the original. They only had the concept before the original became a huge hit, and fast tracked this one through writing and filming and it shows. Not an awful movie and pretty decent by the standards of the genre, but a big dropoff from the first. Still meta. Still midly funny. Missing the third part of the equation... a twisty plot that you give a shit about. Sidenote: other studios were so nervous going head to head with Scream 2, that they bumped films from their release dates to avoid it. MGM moved Tomorrow Never Dies and Titanic was pushed by a week.

96. Scream 3
Image
Ugh. And then there's Scream 3. Hadn't watched it since seeing it in the theater back in 2000. Maybe not as bad as it's rep but certainly the worst of the series. Keep seeing it described as overly Scooby Doo, and that sums it up. Scream 3 was 3 years after Scream 2... Columbine happened just prior to shooting, so the studio directive was to back off on the violence and up the comedy. Nope. Guest list remains solid, Jenny McCarthy and McDreamy not withstanding. Lance Henrickson (poorly used), Parker Posey (crushing it), Emily Mortimer, Puddy, a Heather Matarazzo walk on. The opening scene is great. Couple of decent set pieces. But holy fuck, the plot and flat humor (pretty much anything without Posey and Cox). I'm not a big Kevin Williamson fan, but he was sorely missed. Not a miserable film but there's a reason the series was put on ice for a decade after this.

97. Scream 4
Image
First rewatch since seeing it in 2011. I liked it more this time around and think it's the second best in the series. Wes Craven riffs on remake/reboots and the changing horror scene (as well as enjoyably bitching about "you kids today"). And with Kevin Williamson back on board, the twists are actually well done this time (even if the humor remains spotty). Genuinely think this one is under appreciated. If you avoided it because of it's muted reception at the time, maybe give it a shot.

98. The Strangers: Prey at Night
Image
Oh, hey. This was a piece of shit. Two scenes with decent visuals. NOTHING else going for it. Crowbarred 80's pop tunes. Not remotely tense. Not inventive. Wastes a potentially quality setting (abandoned trailer park). Had hoped this one was just ignored because slashers are out of vogue, but no. It's the reason slashers are out of vogue.

99. The Hand
Image
Keep your hand in the fucking car, Michael! I like this dumb dumb, sloppy movie. Bit of a precursor to Mary Harron's American Psycho with it's ambiguity as to what's real and not. I know Oliver Stone is a bit embarrassed about this, his first studio gig, but he has so many worse things to be embarrassed about. This is fine. Prick comic book artist Caine looses his hand in an awesomely shot and edited car accident, gets more prickish, and his severed hand starts killing his enemies. This is fine.

100. Dawn of the Dead 3-D
Image
Off to the theater for a sold out showing of the remastered, 3D conversion of Dawn of the Dead. This one has a big back story (producer hasnt allowed screenings or a blu ray release in ages... this was only the second public showing of the 3D conversion since it was finished several years ago.) The remaster looked great. The 3D FX (not normally my thing) were great. Everything was great. Part of an annual Horrorfest that a dude here in town organizes. Nearly all 4 showings sold out, so they just added 2 more for Halloween night. The hope was a strong showing at the 3 theaters it was released to this year in hopes of a limited release worldwide next year in time for it's 40th anniversary. In any case, here's hoping this at least spurs a new blu-ray release soon. It's absurd that this film has become so hard to track down by legit means in the states.

101. The Fog
Image
Probably my least favorite of the Carpenter heyday films, but even his worst from that time is worth a watch. And it is infinitely better than the dogshit remake from a decade ago. Cool ghosts. Some cool deaths. Sporadic atmosphere that crushes it in fits and starts. Again, not a fave but fine. Everything's fine.

That gets me to Halloween. Probably crank out another half dozen today... have a short list, but will probably just wing it. So close to done.

tried watching The Fog but it was too much for my wife (we weren't expecting all the stabbing etc at the beginning) so I'll have to catch that one solo later. I do really like the vibe of the movie BEFORE anything happens, just watching this town as shit starts to get weird

Final list... this takes me through 2 am Halloween night. With the Ouija 2 rewatch, I hit 110 this month and I still had about a dozen I really wanted to get to :)

102. The Brood
Image
Couldn't do a Hooptober without at least one Cronenberg. Decided to go with The Brood (almost went with Shivers, but you really can't go wrong with whatever you pick). Movie was written while Davey was going through his own custody battle, so ick.

103. Pontypool
Image
First watched this one about 7-8 years ago off of a Canadian TV rip. It's been fun watching this one grow in esteem in the horror community over the past decade... it regularly pops up on favorite and underrated lists these days and obviously has a lot of support here. Not bad for a movie that made roughly $30,000 worldwide in its original release. Anyway, this is close to pure comfort food perfection for me. I really need to track down the radio version they made at the same time. Also, Stephen McHattie should be in everything.

104. In the Mouth of Madness
Image
Man, I used to love this movie but it is a love that has faded considerably. So many little pieces work (and I know this won't be the popular opinion around here) but it just doesnt add up to a solid whole for me. I do think it was the last time Carpenter tapped his magic, but it comes in such fits and starts here. Sure, the painting is neat. Old lady. The church. The ending. But lousy acting (Julie Carmen is just AWFUL and so much of the movie hangs on her reactions early on, though Sam Neil is fine as always) and the sense that Carpenter just wants to get this thing shot so he can go back to playing Goldeneye or whatever undercuts most of what works. I still like the movie, but it's a frustrating watch for me these days. If Hollywood is going to insist on remaking Carpenter movies, how bout this one? All the pieces are there. Man, the 90's were rough for mainstream horror.

105. Christine
Image
And with that, I realized I had watched every horror movie worth watching by Carpenter this month (sorry The Ward and fuck James Woods) except one, so decided to finish it off with Christine. Always feel like Christine gets a bit forgotten among the best stuff in his filmography also (even Carpenter doesnt much care for it, though it seems more for personal career arc reasons). It is really, REALLY good. Easily near the top for King adaptations... shame Carpenter never took another swing at his stuff, cause their styles match up well. Watched this one last October also after having not watched it in well over a decade. Revisit it if you haven't in a while. Aged great.

106. Night of the Living Dead
Image
No better movie to watch on a grey Halloween an hour or two before the sun goes down. Watched the remastered version from last year. No horror movie takes me back to being 9 like Night of the Living Dead.

107. Mandy
Image
Been meaning to do a rewatch of Mandy all month and was running out of time, so it fell into the primetime spot for Halloween night. My opinion on Mandy is still all over the place, but I mostly love it. On the rewatch, I found the first hour lost some of the thrill it had for me the first time around. I got quibbles that run the gamut throughout, but this is one I ultimately just don't wanna nitpick too much. The overall effect outweighs its missteps and both of Cosmatos's movies exist outside of a heavily critical space for me and I want it to remain that way. His movies are like shoegaze or ambient music... I just want it to wash over me, free of too much analysis.

108. Dark Angel: The Ascent
Image
Took a quick break and decided to wrap with some crap. Blind watch for me. Full Moon production, so I had an idea what I was in for. I have no idea how to rate this one. It certainly wasn't good, but it did hold my attention. Fucking bizarre. A demon with a heart of gold and her hellhound come to earth to stop rapists and corrupt politicians. The rare Full Moon movie to be directed by a woman, Linda Hassani, who pretty much only has several episodes of Silk Stalkings and some Playboy videos to her name (and who Full Moon list as "L. Hassani" in the opening credits for probably shitty reasons, though she may have just been trying to protect her name... after digging around, I found her student film won a humanitarian award that aired on PBS and was optioned by Spielberg for development that never came). Anyway, weird, extremely 90's cheapie. Goes for lame comedy between the avenging scenes. Really hope Adam Sandler got his idea for Little Nicky from this.

109. Demon Knight
Image
Final film. Started it around 1 am. I was surprised at how well Demon Knight holds up. I did not see that coming. Cast is stacked (William Sadler clearly loving a lead, CCH Pounder, Dick Miller, Thomas Hayden Church, a great Billy Zane, Jada Pinkett Pre-Smith). Some fun gore effects. Cute puppet monsters. Not high art or anything... just a fun, goofy siege film and a great way to end the night. Directed by Spike Lee's old cinematographer Ernest Dickerson (who shot Do the Right Thing and Malcolm X before striking out on his own with Juice, the Gary Busey classic Surviving the Game, and Snoop Doggs' Bones... guy has had an interesting career).


That's all for 2018.

I watched the OG Halloween last night for who know what number re-watch but it's been a while.
Goddamn it is such a lean and mean movie.
Very little fluff and an absolute masterpiece of pacing and tension.
