Horrorthon 2015: The Recap
Gremlins. Campy cult classic that I just kinda love.
The Sixth Sense, Signs & The Village. First weekend of October needed something lighter and M Night's older stuff is just perfect for that.
Dream House. So unbelievably stupid.
The Hole. It's like Joe Dante turned an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? into a full length movie... with not very good results.
What We Do in the Shadows. Flight of the Conchords meets vampires meets mockumentary.
iZombie, Scream & Scream Queens. Even when I watched tv, I tried to make it horror. Summing each up: Delightful, too serious, and silly.
It Follows. Victim of its hype. Stylish cinematography & great score... but unfulfilling payoff.
Goodnight Mommie. Victim of its trailer and slow pacing. The ending though is crazy intense.
A Nightmare on Elm Street. SO much fun! Great concept and pretty ruthless in how the victims are each picked off.
The Ring. The modern classic that holds itself most dear to me.
Fright Night. This remake is a lot of fun
1408. Nice horror film if you need one in a pinch.
Saw. Messed up....but awesome.
Devil. Fun Twilight Zone premise that works well enough for me.
Crimson Peak. Not as scary as I wanted, but loved the story.
Misery. SO great.
Goosebumps. Fun for kids to have a new Hocus Pocus for their generation. More movies like this for kids should be made.
The Shining. One of the greatest horror films ever made.
Dawn of the Dead. Unfortunately watched a really choppy version of this. It was hard to get the full effect. Some great moments though.
Hocus Pocus. Classic Halloween staple.
Don't Look Now. I really only cared for a handful of moments in this to be honest.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. SO INCREDIBLY INTENSE. One of my new favorites.
Pet Sematary. Haha this movie is crazy. In both good ways and bad ways!
The Amityville Horror. Slow start up, but it's got some really creepy moments.
Haunter. Just.....so dang stupid.
Cooties. Silly zombie kid killing fun.
The Final Girls. Another fun homage to the genre that cleverly deconstructs what we expect from horror.
Unfriended. Clever concept that gets a little tedious by the end.
The Lost Boys. So very 80's and I mean that in the very best way. 80's film first, vampire film second.
The Cabin in the Woods. Love letter to the horror genre.
Friday the 13th. Such a slow beginning, but the ending is absolutely fabulous.
Re-Animator. NIGHTMARE FUEL! Probably the most disturbing film I saw all month.
The Exorcist. Slow beginning lessened the blow for the events of the second half. Still incredibly disturbing and terrifying though.
Tucker & Dale vs. Evil. So freaking funny.
Halloween. Classic slasher flick.
Welp! That's all, can you believe it? Now onto immersing myself in Star Wars for the next month and a half...
