Night of the Creeps is awesome, the characters are so classic. Seen it multiple times and enjoy it everytime. You should check out Blood Diner, that movie is nuts, just completely crazy.

Me and my best bud watch bad horror movies all the time. By bad I mean stuff like Python, Sand Sharks, stuff like that. Horror movies that are fun to rip on. We always have a good time. I think that's why I like the horror genre. Its so fun to watch for different reasons and different moods.

I think it would be impossible to pin down a favorite, as if asked I would likely give you a different movie each week as being my favorite.  For this post it is Nosferatu the Vampyre, that creepy German take on the silent original.  There is just something so disturbing about the cinematography in that movie, especially Klaus Kinski's portrayal of Nosferatu.  And the ending.  Soooo creepy.

I got an early start in gearing up for the Halloween holiday by popping in Bava's "5 Dolls For an August Moon" last night.  This is one I purchased on a whim after someone unloaded quite a bit of Bava DVDs at my local media store.  Last Halloween, I saw "Blood and Black Lace," which I was totally enamored with, and had heard that 5 Dolls was another Bava Giallo that I should check out. I have to admit, I wasn't impressed with this effort, and would have to contend that this really isn't even a horror film, but more of a thriller.  Sure, the same whodunit element of the Giallo is there, but all of the murders (other than a few virtually bloodless shootings) are committed off-screen.  One of the characters is super out of place and there's no reasoning for her being on a private island and not living in the only home present there. There's no indication of why she is even there, or how the others know here.  Bava certainly has some extremely beautiful women in all of his films, but especially in this one, because they all look like models, I had trouble distinguishing who was who and which "belonged" to which husband/lover.  The premise of the film is pretty good and sets up nicely for a murder mystery, but man, the payoff at the end frankly does not...well... payoff.  I figured out the killer before the movie was halfway over.  This film, though very beautiful in places, (Bava's use of color is like any other) falls very short in the entertainment category.  Curious if anyone else has seen it and what they think.

October 2nd - The Burning
October 9th - Grabbers
October 16th - Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
October 23rd - The Howling
October 30th -  Season of the Witch

Thatís looking like a solid list. Unfortunately my SO isnít a fan of horror movies, but I always find the time to watch a couple of the movies they run on AMC during October.

I wish my SO was a horror movie fan as well. Anything in the horror genre I have to watch on my own, so needless to say I don't get to watch many horror movies these days.....

My wife wasn't a big horror fan at first either. I think that the key is to find something kind of fun to get them interested and move on from there. Something like Shawn of the Dead is a good ice breaker. Once you realize that even the scarier films are fun group viewings, then it becomes fun for all involved.

I'm not much into horror movies, but my favorite is either the deliciously cheesy Night of the Living Dead remake from 1990 (with Tony Todd), Shaun of the Dead, or The People Under the Stairs. I also like the original House and House II, for the camp factor.

Really? I would highly encourage you to see it. What I like about it is, it's not a horror film in the "gore" sense, but more in that, it plays with your head. At least, that's what I remember from when I watched it. It's been a number of years since I saw it last, but I remember liking the psychological horror aspect of it.

Thought Iíd share a couple of horror film collection photos with you guys. Iíve got a lot more horror but these are the two sections I have taken out of the main A-Z film collection and put into date order as much as possible.

First my Universal Horror/Monster stuff:

Thereís no real definition of what is included in this ďsetĒ outside the obvious frankenstein, mummy, Dracula etc. But basically I go off the latest Wikipedia list, which does have some odd stuff on it. But whatever.
This films can be pretty tricky to get hold of over here in England but I get them when I can.

And my Hammer collection:

Which has a lot more films in it that it at first appears but most are in box sets.
I think wherever you are in the world Hammer is a bit of a pain cus itís all owned by different distribution companies.

I ended up watching Pulse (1988), The Fog (1980), and Children of the Corn during September. The Fog and Children of the Corn are favorites of mine that I've seen before. Pulse was ok, but not something I would feel compelled to watch again.

The original Halloween and The Shining are staples that I watch every Halloween season. Right now I feel like I'd also like to rewatch The Thing (1982) and Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), so I'll try to make those happen. I may end up watching some others, but I don't have anything else planned.

Those are all great films FRO. The only one that I have not seen is The People Under the Stairs.

People Under the Stairs is good stuff. I also haven't seen it in quite a few years.
