Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982). As long as you ignore the tired criticism that this isn't strictly speaking a sequel to the original Halloween and treat it as a separate movie altogether, it's quite an enjoyable flick. Tom Atkins and Stacey Nelkin (another underrated actress who deserved more opportunities at bigger roles) make for an interesting pairing considering the age difference but manage to work fine. Now if only I could get that Silver Shamrock commercial jingle out of my head...

i also would like to throw support behind a nightmare on elm street 2, which i think gets labeled something its not and doesnt get the credit it deserves

i watched the documentary on the entire nightmare series, titled never sleep again, and i have to disagree with the views on it.

story wise i thought it was great, like a wolfman or jekyll and hyde approach, good acting from everyone although i thought they could have casted better for the lead, really scary visuals, and freddy attacking the pool party was great.

craven did not like this angle, but viewing it as a possesion thing where freddy found a way to cross dimensions was a unique approach to the character and story.

i dont know why this one gets negative reviews and i think the people who think it to be gay are reading to heavy into things, or trying to find things to support that idea, sure there is the scene with bob shaye behind the bar, but other than that i see no other evidence.

You know I saw that Never Sleep Again documentary on Nightmare 2 as well. Several cast and crew we're trying to say it was gay. Others said they never got that impression, but as I recall they thought that because there was a little male nudity in various parts through out the film, one of the characters was gay, the lead actor is gay in real life, and that there was some gay overtones within the story allegedly.

The writer said he tried to be subliminal with the relationship between Jessie the main character and Freddy, as well as his relationship with Grady his friend. However a close analysis of Grady and Jessie’s relationship to me looks like nothing more than friendship. To be honest I walked away from the documentary feeling like I was more mature and comfortable with my sexuality than most of those who were speaking.

I’ve heard the theory about this film before, on the main page of this site actually. But I watched the movie again not long ago and quite honestly I think those overtones are only there if you want them to be there. I have nothing against gay people, but they will have to admit that they are guilty of constantly trying to claim stuff as their own. Like the Rainbow for instance, Rainbow is for everybody damnbit!

I would also like to add on a side note that there is also a misconception of body builders being gay. Some may be, but not all. There was a joke on Family Guy and a few other shows about He-man and Lionel from the Thundercats being marked to children and causing gayness because they have muscles, if your kids are that susceptible to being gay then, they probably didn’t have to far to go to start with. I never once thought about action figures in that way when I was a kid, why are so many people worried about it?

It is either the work of the Gay community attempting to claim cool things for their own, or jealous skinny punks who are feeblishly attempting to discredit men more masculine then themselves.

It surprises me how many people try to claim that the works of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van Damn, and other 80’s action animated or living action heroes are gay, In My Honest Opinion, nothing could be further from the truth. They to me accentuate the definitive macho, respectable, charismatic man; people will have you believe they are gay just because they wore revealing clothes. You would be surprised at all of the reasons they come up with, it leads me to my point which is that people will read into anything. It never once dawned on these people that these guys might be either revealing themselves to show that the character is bulked up adding strength to his persona, In the 80’s there was a fitness craze, everybody was getting into shape. Muscles are not just pretty to look at; they are a sign of strength, hard work, and dedication. They reveal character.

And what is wrong with looking at other guy’s muscles, It is perfectly natural to look at another man in a nonsexual way and want to be as physically fit as that person, regardless of that person’s sexual orientation. I mean, who doesn’t want to be bulked up?

In closing I will say that straight people need to be less uptight and gay people need to stop monopolizing cool things as their own.

I watched The Fog again the other night.

I loved all of John Carpenters films (The Thing, Prince of Darkness etc) but this one was always a personal favourite.

The scene with the 3 drunk guys on the boat was one of the scariest moments

'There ain't no fog bank out there'

'Hey there's a fog bank out there..'

Lucas Locusts doesn't Carpenter's 80's cinematography kick a$$? I love those shots at night with the pale white lights on the streets or the pale white light of the moon, in the background the sound of that energizing electrical beat from the synthesizer.

I knew I had to own Halloween III Soundtrack when I heard it. Sometimes I'll step out on my porch on a warm night and listen to it. You would be suprised how many ideas you can get from it.

Yeah i agree Jack, Prince of Darkness and Halloween were great examples of this.
A shot of a silhouette in the darkness could really build up the suspense in his films

The scariest thing about Halloween is the score. Credit to Carpenter, but without that score it wouldn't have anywhere near the scare factor.

The one problem with some of these slasher flicks though is that the killer can be in one place at one time and then in another place in a second, defying the laws of physics and then when they are in a position to kill someone they seem to have the reflexes of a 70 year old man.

Speaking of Creepy tunes, has anyone ever checked out this band called Nox Arcana. They play alot of lyricless music based on old Poe and Lovecraft esq horror. You can find all their songs on Youtube but this is one of my favorites.

Reminds me of the Puppetmaster theme.

Dolls, which came out in 1987 and is missing from this site. (reaching for Kleenex) It's campy, sure, and funny. But it's... well, go see for yourself. :-)

Night of the Creeps

A 1980's campy tribute to all things horror. Just about any movie with Tom Atkins has to be good.
