October Horror Movie Challenge?


Movies


Is anyone doing the October Horror Movie Challenge this year?

For those of you who are not familiar with the challenge, the rules are simple: watch 31 horror movies during the month of October (the definition of "horror" is up to you). 16 of these movies have to be movies you haven't seen before.

I've done this for 2 years now and have been able to pull it off successfully. Although there are always BAD horror movies I haven't see, finding good ones to fill up my 16 unseen slots is getting more difficult.

Anyone have suggestions?

My wife and I did this 2 years ago and we had to stop halfway through because she was having terrible nightmares.

Try "The Gate" from 1987. I loved that one as a kid.
"Ghost Chase" is not scary and it's terrible. Perfect for MST3000.

There are lots of other I grew up with, but they're the obvious ones I'm sure you've already seen.

Does "The Sound of Music" and "Grease" count as horror movies?

I've not heard of this before, but I love it. I've definitely got to try it.

A good list with a handful I have not seen

Look for Dead Birds with Henry Thomas from ET

Fire in the Eyes a excellent early 80's colonial ghost story. you will likely need to break out the VHS to watch this unless you are willing to go to the "seedy internet land"

Tangent: What did you think of Lo and Ink?

I liked Lo, though I could have done without some of the musical numbers. Overall though I found it compelling.

Ink, is one of my favorite films. I think I watched it 5 times last year. I also made all of my friends watch it and have discovered it's a love it or hate it kind of film. I think a lot of people give up on it too soon and mistakenly stop watching after about 20 minutes.

My wife and I really enjoyed both, although I agree on the musical numbers just seemed a bit too repetitive.

I have been watching a bunch of Dario Argento Films on Netflix Perhaps I will wait till October to start back a bunch of the 70's ones i havent seen.


Less than an hour to go


This is something I try and do every year (but not with a specific number of new movies).

Started today with Dead Alive, which I had heard a lot about, but not seen before.


So far I've watched
The Cottage
Wicked Little Things
Rammbock: Berlin Undead
Trick R' Treat
Grace
Dream Home
Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
Night of the Demons (2009)
Night of the Comet
I saw the Devil
Phantasm II


I swore I made some suggestions on some thread about "horror" movies..

The Gingerdead Man
Jack Frost (not the kids movie, or maybe the kids movie, depends what you think it a "horror" movie I guess)
Killer Clowns from Outer Space
Gingerdead Man 2
Jack Frost 2
Green Lantern (THAT'S a horror movie)

Would you recommend any of those? I keep seeing them on Netflix but haven't put them in my queue yet.

They were all good films, and I wouldn't have a problem watching them again.

Dream Home is subtitled if that's an issue for you. If it's not, I also highly recommend "I Saw the Devil" which is an excellent Korean film about revenge.

Since my last post I have also seen
Stakeland
Yellow Brick Road
The Unnamable
Diary of the Dead
Survival of the Dead
Outpost

Of those Stakeland, Outpost and Yellow Brick Road (in that order) were the only one's I would recommend. Yellow Brick Road may or may not agree with you, but I liked it up until the end.
