Ronnie, Ghost Story is one of my favorite horror movies--it is very good. When I was a kid it really scared me, so much that my dad told me he wasn't going to let me watch any more scary movies. If you like to read, the book by Peter Straub is also very good.

Funhouse is on TMC or Cinemax or something like that this month. I plan on watching it. I remember seeing it on Scifi when I was in college, and I remember it being good.

Tonight's flick:

An American Werewolf in London (1981)

 -

This movie is best known for the song "Bad Moon Rising" by Creedence Clearwater Revival, but below is the tune I think of when this movie is mentioned:

Werewolves of London

Muffy, Griffin Dunne was great in the dysfunctional insominac flick "After Hours". Also, I heard he was in the newer movie "Snow Angels" which sounds interesting.

October 10th - Friday Night Frights:

Deadly Friend (1988)

 -

From horror master Wes Craven starring Matthew Laborteaux and Kristy Swanson comes a dark tale about a Halloween night prank that went very wrong. The tone of this movie is extremely wicked and twisted, but though the premise is far fetched, it is a October fav of mine and of course Riptide .

I remember seeing Deadly Friend, but I never knew it was a Wes Craven flick! I didn't know it was on DVD either.

I started watching Cheerleader Camp last night...I fell asleep again, right at the same spot I fell asleep last time. I am going to try finishing it tonight. I want to see the end. The hedge clippers through the back of the head scene is pretty gross.

They had some nerdy guys in this movie...for all the cute girls that were in it.

Betsy Russell looks absolutely nothing like she did in Private School. I have never understood how a perm could change a person's looks so drastically...because even her face doesn't look the same.

Saturday Night October 11th:

Ghoulies (1985)

 -

I have always been a huge fan of "Gremlins", but how many folks have seen the original "Ghoulies"? Not sure how it gained enough notice for a "Ghoulies II", but somehow it happened. I will say that the ghoulies were quite narley looking and there was indeed a wickedly scary clown in it. However, what makes this movie note worthy is that one of the highest paid tv actresses for her work on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" .....Mariska Hargitay started her career in this flick.

I never saw Ghoulies or Basket Case either.

Last night I was staying at a resort for the Autumnfest...and there was absolutely nothing on TV. They didn't have any of the really good channels. Right now...if I have to watch regular TV...my favorite channel is "Chiller". It stunk to not have my computer...and then be trapped with no movies. The weekend was awesome...but no good TV is like torture.

I watched Poltergeist III last night. Not nearly as good as the first two, but I always loved all the effects with the mirrors. Pretty cool.

Obviously, a new Kane

80'srocked - i love the 3rd one! my least favorite of the 3 was part 2.

petty - i have never seen basket case but my friend said it was quite cooky and thinks i will like it. it was only 4.99 (brand new) on amazon, so i figured, why not? the plot for this movie is insane lol.

how cool it would be to have a 'chiller' cable channel. where i live, they don't offer that station. i'd probably watch it constantly.

I watched Terror Train on Sat. night. It was okay. I figured out who the killer was pretty early into the film.

I'd recommend it for Halloween viewing because even though it takes place on New Year's Eve, the characters are in costumes the majority of the time. It was kinda suspenseful in parts as well.

Hmm... should I go with Nightmare on Elm Street for this weekend?

I usually figure out the killer way too early in almost all new suspense/mystery flicks that I watch. I actually ruin it for myself! I guess when you've seen so many movies, it becomes easy to predict. Not to mention that Hollywood is running out of original ideas and plots.

We have the Chiller channel and I absolutely love it. They show series like Tales from the Crypt and Alfred Hitchc*ck Presents and horror movies. It's great.
