 - Well, it's that time of year again.  - Post away.

Tonight:

 -

House of Wax (1953)

"An associate burns down a wax museum with the owner inside, but he survives only to become vengeful and murderous."



I really enjoyed this. Recommended.

I plan to watch the original "Mystery of The Wax Museum" before the end of the month. Let's see how they compare.


Verdict:  - /5

Don't have a game plan or theme this year for Halloween movies, so I'm just watching some older and newer favorites randomly.

Starting things off with this favorite of mine from 2002.

The Legend of Hell House (1973)

"Physicist Lionel Barrett and his wife lead a team of mediums into the Belasco House, which is supposedly haunted by the victims of its late owner, a six-foot-five serial killer."


First time watch.

Pretty good -- a little slow at times, but enjoyable nonetheless. Not sure about the ending though.

Roddy McDowell and Pamela Franklin were great as the two mediums.

Two fun horrors one from the late 80s (After Midnight) and one from the late 90s which whilst low on gore and real jump scares make up for it by being stylishly shot and high on atmosphere with Disturbing Behavior having the added bonus of a pretty cool soundtrack and some well known cast names!

Enjoyed both equally as much and rate them about a 7/10.

Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter

"After being mortally wounded and taken to the morgue, murderer Jason Voorhees spontaneously revives and embarks on a killing spree as he makes his way back to his home at Camp Crystal Lake."



My favourite of the series. Dark and foreboding.

I know it's not really a horror movie. But anyone who's watched this will agree that it's pretty damn creepy.

I mean..GOOD LAWWD!!! [Eek!]

Watched the ace 1983 rat horror Of Unknown Origin with Peter Weller (Robocop) and the beautiful Shannon Tweed plus the equally fun Stuart Gordon horror Dolls which despite not quite reaching the heights of his 1985 classic Reanimator is not a million miles off and I still regard it as one of my favourite Empire Films releases alongside the likes of Reanimator,Trancers,Prison,Ghost Town etc.

Both rate a strong 8/10 with me and are two horrors from my collection that I could pick up at anytime and rewatch unlike a few that I do own that I only tend to revisit just once in a blue moon!

"Creepshow is an American horror anthology web television series that released on Shudder in 2019. A continuation of the first two films in the Creepshow franchise, the series featured six episodes with two horror stories per episode."

I watched episode 1 last night. Two good stories: "Gray Matter/The House of The Head".


 -

Based on the short story from 'Night Shift'. Good "creature feature/body horror" story.

 -

I really liked this one, very original and creepy.

This is a very promising start. Neither story is especially scary, but you can see that they've put a lot of effort into reproducing the feel of the original/sequel. The creep isn't voiced, unfortunately. It might be my only nitpick.

There are plenty of easter eggs littered throughout, so keep your eyes peeled.

Just checked out episode 2.

 -

Two more stories: "Bad Wolf Down" & "The Finger"

Not as good as the first episode, but still a lot of fun. I've enjoyed the (slightly) longer 2nd stories more, so far.

Recommended. [Smile]

Graveyard Of Horror (1971)

Rather obscure (and for good reason) Spanish mood-piece known under a variety of different titles (The Butcher Of Binbrook,
Necrophagus), full of old damp castles lit by burning torches, creaky doors, snowy landscapes, and decrepit graveyard scenes.
The theme music adds to a sense of melancholy not unlike your average Jean Rollin film from around the same time period.

Kinda like a low-grade Hammer production mixed with one of those Filipino-shot Blood Island films by way of Amando De Ossorio..
something like that !

The Ruins (2008)

,..A group of friends whose leisurely Mexican holiday takes a turn for the worse when they embark on a remote archaeological dig
in the jungle where something evil lives among the ruins..'

Despite the presence of a noise-reproducing flesh-eating vine (or weed, whatever it may be) that adds a touch of the supernatural,
this is still very much a survival-themed jungle-adventure-gone-terribly-wrong type-of-film, complete with several extremely graphic
scenes of on-the-spot amateur surgery.. Tasty stuff !

Watched the very atmospheric low budget 1984 shocker Mutant again and it's one that holds a lot of nostalgia for me as I more or less saw it straight away upon its UK home video release back in 84/85 and watching it back then on my own as an 11 or 12 year it had a lasting impact with me what with its creepy vibe and terrific Richard Band music score!

Some decent effects work,tense set pieces,the already mentioned fantastic music score plus great performances from Wings Hauser and Bo Hopkins (who would team up a few years later in Nico Mastorakis'Nightmare At Noon) make this a winner for me and another horror flick that like my previous two viewings Dolls and Of Unknown Origin is one that I can just watch over and over again! 8/10
