Here´s my short review from last december:

"Scarecrows (1988)

- This was a pretty nice horror flick.
Some nasty death scenes, wicked scarecrows
and stupid people who deserve to get wasted"

Check it out Ronnie but don´t expect too much.

With Halloween starting to close in.. it is time to get serious about watching horror flicks..

 -

"The Thing" (1982) is horror master John Carpenter’s remake of the 1951 classic "The Thing from Another World". I remember watching the original with my dad as a little kid and it scaried me bad. So I just had to see this remake when I found out about it. It definitely scaried me again, but what a great movie.

Carpenter chose early on that he did not want to merely repeat the shocks from the orginal film. So he decided to go back to the original short story by John W. Campbell Jr. entitled “Who Goes There?” Consequently, "The Thing" follows this source material much more closely than the 1951 film.

No longer a tale of a monster attacking from the outside, it is now a story of a threat coming from within. Instead of “Keep watching the skies” (the last line from The Thing from Another World)... the tagline for this remake should be “Keep watching the guy next to you.”

 -

I've been a huge fan of Kurt Russell and enjoy most of his films from the 80's. With some of my Russell favs being "Escape From New York", "The Mean Season", and "the Best of Times" along with this flick.

"The Thing" (1982) is definitely one of the most intense and horrific films from the 80's. Outstanding special effects, superb casting, and brilliant direction all combine to create an awesome tale of paranoia and terror!

Okay only one fan of "The Thing"?

How about The Dead Zone (1983)

 -

Christopher Walken stars as high school teacher Johnny Smith who crashes his VW bug into a overturned tanker tuck and spends five years in a coma.. only to discover he now has the gift of second sight. What an incredible gift.. right? But then he learns that the love of his life did not wait for him and has married someone else. Enter bitter and disgruntled Johnny.

 -

Johnny basically has the gift of seeing your future through only a touch of the hand.. and this gift seem great until eventually he becomes entangled with a politician Greg Stillson (Martin Sheen). Johnny unfortunately foresees that if Stillson wins, this guy will lead the us into World War III. He must be stopped.

 -

The book was by Stephen King .. the director of the movie was David Cronenberg who had has his own gift of creating unsettling and quite creepy flicks..

You kidding? I think your post was a kind of 'Nuff said' post. The Thing is great. The Thing and Alien are two of the most claustrophobic horror movies ever made.

Dead Zone is very good, too. Walken and Sheen really... shine.

Ditto, both are masterpieces, among the best of the 1980's. You've just reminded me that I've only done my Christopher Walken imitation--"The ice...is gonna BREAK!"--once today. :-)

The Thing is the greatest remake ever! Carpenter grew up with the original movie that was flawed to began with and remade it for a new generation. It's just an awesome movie i adored since i was 15 years old.

Linda (Tawny Kitaen) who for some reason always reminds of girl rolling around on a hood of a car... becomes obsessed with the ouija board. Her obession began during an apparently harmless game party where the spirit of a young boy named David is contacted. After the party, Linda keeps on using the Ouija to talk to David, despite warnings from a friend that the young boy is actually an evil spirit in disguise. Soon it becomes obvious that a malevolent force has taken hold of Linda and soon people start to die.... 

'Witchboard' is both written and directed by Kevin Tenney who was also responsible for the horror flick 'Night of the Demons' (1987).  I remember the first time I watched "Witchboard" that I spent most of it amazed that Stephen Nichols had two eyes..  since then I've continued to watch it every Halloween season.

 -

and if you are an Ami Dolenz fan like me.. you have to watch "Witchboard 2" as a double feature!

Still haven´t seen Witchboard.

I watched Amityville 3-D (1983)
What a disappointing flick!
Even the early roles from Lori Loughlin and Meg Ryan couldn´t save this one.
Couple of good scenes and that was it.

Witchboard is a good movie. I haven't seen parts 2 or 3. Netflix has part 3 available as instant watch. I watched part of Mother's Day last night. It hasn't been too bad so far, so I guess I'll finish it.
