    10/12 Svengoolie (2013): Dracula (1931)
    I was indisposed during Sven's first airing on 10/05 (see below) but that was somewhat fortuitous as it made for this showing to be my first of the season. Usually the Universals as skipped during October, I'm guessing because they're more expensive, so it's great to see Shock Theater's bread and butter still being set out over the air waves into people's homes here in Chicago. Last few seasons have been re-re-reruns but with Sven's new coffin we're getting brand new intros and Rich Koz is looking just as good post heart attack as he did in those old playbacks. Glad to have you back Sven!

    10/13 Svengoolie (2013): The Leech Woman (1960)
    No matter what I never miss any Sven in October; as you may recall I even reviewed 60's Batman: The Movie when they aired that last year! So I had a family member DVR this for me and watched it at their house the following weekend. This is another new episode and Sven showed off his new coffin a bit with an eye watching routine, à la peeping portraits. Leech Woman is a broody cynical film that feels like it was written by a self loathing feminist Nazi and takes misandry so far to the left it circles back to the right to the point that it feels like misogyny! No one wins in this film. Still Coleen Gray is spooky good looking here, IThere's some nice voodoo rituals here, not great, which is still always a welcome alternative for witchcraft. A very strong 50's feel for 1960, I recommend checking it out some time from your Mom 'n Pop's for different taste of the times.

    Featured arguably the wackiest moment to date in this series. Keep in mind I've only seen the first two seasons thus far. Should have known that jukebox was going to shake things up a bit. :lol: This show is brilliant & daring!

    35. Jeepers creepers (2001)
    One of the most memorable movie monsters created in the past 20 years, can't believe we have only had 1 sequel of this franchise when we see movies nowhere near as good as this on many more sequels.

    36. Friday the 13th (2009)
    Thought I would try this one again as had not seen it in 2 years , thought going in to it again after all this time I might have been overly critical the first time I saw it . Nope just as bad as I remembered. A big part of the charm for me of the originals is the low budget look and feel, everything here feels too shiny.

    37. Friday the 13th part 4 : The Final Chapter. (1984)
    After watching the remake of the original I wanted to watch my favorite film in the franchise to make it up to myself. Think this was had the best cast and it come through in the performances how much they enjoyed making it.

    38. Friday the 13th part 5 : A New Beginning (1985)
    After enjoying part 4 I thought I might as well watch the next two. Always thought of parts 4,5 and 6 as a mini trilogy in the franchise much the same as Halloweens 4,5 and 6. I know a lot of people don't like this one but if you can get over the fact Jason is not in this installment there is still much fun to be had.

    39. Friday the 13th part 6 : Jason Lives (1986)
    Being a big fan of return of the living dead it is great to see Thom Matthews in this, just a pity we could not get James Karen to play his sidekick in the cemetary scene. This is the first film that started to play up to the supernatural element of Jason and IMO the last of the great original films.

    43) The Asphyx: A very high brow, sophisticated supernatural film that relies on its story instead of gore and cheap scares. It is a bit on the stuffy and stiff side, but the originality of the story is what makes it stand out, which is a heartbreaking story of a man trying to find the key to immortality after the accidental death of his son. There is a high focus on drama and pseudo-science, but I still think you should check it out. (7/10)

    44) Dunwich Horror: Putting the HP Lovecraft source material aside, it's obvious Corman and AIP were trying to ride off the success of Rosemary's Baby. It wasn't half bad until the end when I really started losing interest. Dean Stockwell and the majority of the cast were pretty much sleepwalking through the entire film. There are some really great Gothic set pieces and the score wasn't half bad, but the end product was just OK. (6/10)

    45) Blood For Dracula: I had seen Flesh For Frankenstein, the other Andy Warhol produced film, several years ago and liked it quite a bit. This one I just happened to like even more. Very gory and perverse considering when it was released, this one delivers on all fronts and does a great job giving Bram Stoker's novel a modern twist. The only big problems this has is some over the top acting at certain points, Udo Keir in particular, and the accents which were sometimes indistinguishable. Over all this was a great flick. (7.5/10)

    In The Mouth of Madness (1994): A movie I used to watch fairly regularly but haven't watched in many years. Many moments of over-the-topness but still a pretty enjoyable watch. Especially like the ending.

    Black Sheep (2006): Definitely liked this one a lot more this time around. I actually laughed out loud a couple of times.

    Hatchet (2006): Gore, humour, nudity, fun.

    Hatchet II (2010): Gore, humour, nudity, not good.

    The Possession (2012): Usually not a fan of exorcism flicks but this one caught my interest with the Jewish demon angle. I liked the kids and I like Jeffrey Dean Morgan so this one worked for me. Not at all creepy but I gave a damn what happened to the family so that's enough. Couple of rough moments performance-wise from the little girl but she mostly did a good job.

    The Last Exorcism (2010): Yeah I said I don't usually like Exorcism flicks but this one was also pretty spiffy thanks mainly to the performances of Patrick Fabian and Ashley Bell. The ending had been spoiled for me before watching it so it wasn't such a shock to the system, and it didn't bother me much anyway.

    Night Child (1975): Little girl is possessed (I guess) and she has incestuous feelings towards her father and tries to take out the competition for her daddy's love. Weird stuff happens, nonsensical scenes occur, bad dubbing, Joanna Cassidy gets nekkid, the homely little girl from a bunch of Italian "classics" overacts, and I basically say "What the hell was that?". Luckily, a bad Italian horror from the 70's is still 80% more enjoyable than most horrors from any other time or place.

    I read this, and knew you must have been talking about Nicoletta Elmi. iMDB confirmed it. If it helps, she didn't remain homely as she grew up

    October 19th: Night of the Demons 2 (3/5)

    October 20th: V/H/S 2 (2/5) -Four unoriginal found footage stories that really didn't excite me. The first was a rather tame take-off on the Eye, the second a well done if by-the-numbers zombie romp, then a weird cult story that wasn't too bad, and finally a teen sleepover alien story. The wraparound story here was also pretty lame; not as good as the first one for me.

    October 20th: Immortals (1/5) - some cool visual effects couldn't save this ineptly told suckfest.

    Classic Tale - New Twist Triple Feature

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Saint Nick (2010) (Blu-ray) [​IMG]

    Supernatural Slasher about evil Saint Nick returning every 5th December, but only if there's a full moon, to revenge his death. The first hour and set up are simply excellent, but the movie runs out of steam in its final act. Still, I think this is much more enjoyable than the similar Rare Exports (2010).

    Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013) (Blu-ray) [​IMG]

    Loud, fast, gory. This was fun. Also, great casting. Always nice to see Famke Janssen, and Cold Prey's Ingrid Bolso Berdal making her U.S. debut.

    The Woman in Black (2012) (Blu-ray) [​IMG]

    This was pretty much what I've expected. They original was a simple but effective creepy little flick with a cult following. The remake adds new stuff and comes off a bit bloated. Still very atmospheric and I loved the setting.

    [​IMG]

    Wrong Turn (2003) 6/10 **
    Six people find themselves trapped in the woods of West Virginia, hunted down by "cannibalistic mountain men grossly disfigured through generations of in-breeding."

    WRONG TURN has some gruesome kills and some excellent set pieces. The “cat and mouse” up in the tall trees was about as good as it gets.. I’m not an Eliza Dushku fan but Desmond Harrington (Dexter) is a better actor than most slasher flicks get. It did a excellent job of being unsettling without crossing the line into torture porn.



    [​IMG]

    Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007) 6/10 **
    A group of reality show contestants find themselves fighting for their survival against a family of hideously deformed inbred cannibals who plan to ruthlessly butcher them all.

    WRONG TURN 2 doe a lot of things right. It’s got a good cast, which includes Henry Rollins as an ex Drill Instructor, gruesome kills with top notch effects and the freakish backwoods lunatics are incredibly well realized. And even though I hate reality shows, I tend to enjoy when horror films use them as part their story.

    I’m really surprised how good the WRONG TURN series starts out. The gore effects are amazing.



    [​IMG]

    Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead (2009) 2/10 **
    When the transfer bus crashes somewhere in West Virginia forest, a group of convicts and a corrections officer meet a rafter while on the run from cannibalistic hillbilly freaks.

    After watching the first two, it’s jarring how DTV the third installment looks even as the opening credits run. Where the first two had amazing kills the third is a bad CGI fest. The acting is terrible and characters often make unbelievable choices. This movie sucks and I fear for what I’ve got myself into as I expect to watch the rest of the series next weekend.

    9. The Walking Dead - Infection

    Sometimes I'm too hard on this show. I point out how much better American Horror Story is, because AHS can (and does) do anything they want. Walking Dead is a zombie story, can only be a zombie story, and only will be a zombie story. But hey, it's still the best zombie show on television right now. The creators of the comic said they wanted to make a zombie movie that never ends. They succeeded with that with the comic, and the TV show is the same. There's gonna be little stories, little crises, etc, as long as the show is on the air. There won't be some neat ending. And me, I'm ok with that. So, that all said, I liked this episode a lot. Just more situations that arise when dealing with a zombie outbreak. And lots of gore and violence, including a scene directly lifted from Romero's Day of the Dead. I'm old. When I was a kid, Sunday night television meant All in the Family. Not zombies eating people or seeing their guts fall onto the floor. Progress is good.

    I'm liking this movie more each time I see it (though I need a new copy badly. A non-anamorphic Chinese import is just not gonna cut it anymore). I swear, each time I see it I see more of the hidden spirals. This time, I even noticed that certain Japanese characters that feature small spirals had them accentuated and exaggerated, or were just spirals altogether (my two years of studying Japanese helped notice that, I guess). It's a really weird movie, and the less you care about it making sense, the more you enjoy it.
