Vampira (1974) - That was sooo much fun. One of the most enjoyable horror spoofs. Nice cameos and a great cast in general especially Teresa Graves as Vampira. She was a hoot! I wanna be transported back to that 70s Halloween party that Dracula himself bombs. I just wanna live in the film in general, gorge! Good times! 8/10

Let's Scare Jessica To Death (1971)

Watched this one last night. I remember seeing bits & pieces of this when I was a kid, but never actually watched the whole movie. Now that I have I can say I enjoyed it.

Had a fab time at a 2 day horror film festival!

Feature films rank:

Bad Candy (2020) - I really quite enjoyed this. At first with the whole brat kid part I thought it was just gonna be a straight copy of the wonderful Trick 'R Treat. But while it had the same kind of style the stories and atmosphere are super different. I also think it's one I'll like even more second go. 7/10


Ditched (2021) - This started off a bit ropey and then I thought it was gonna be some daft film about tree monsters haha. But it went a whole other place and really won me around. Good stuff. While not a comedy I thought the ending credits scene was hilarious but had to hold it in as the others in the 70 seat cinema were sitting there deadly serious ha! 7/10


Werewolves Within (2021) - A nice funny comedy with a side dose of werewolf. I didn't see the end coming! 7/10


Sound Of Violence (2021) - This was supposed to be Knocking but they said a week ago that the distributors pulled it from the festivals. Anyway this was a curious little oddity that I did quite enjoy and that ending was just bonkers. Did feel it dragged a bit though. 6/10


Cyst (2020) - This was fun with lots of nice gloopy effects but shoulda been a half hour short not a 1 hour 15 minute feature. 6/10


Zomblogalypse (2021) - I wanted to like this more especially with the main woman and guy being there watching and doing a little Q and A afterwards and they were lovely. Alas it did feel a little repetitive. When it did work though it was hilarious especially the whole scene centred around a sweet. 6/10


Shorts rank:

Koreatown Ghost Story (2021) - 8
The Foul (20??) - 8
The Lake Parasite (2021) - 7
Hungry Joe (2020) - 7

I just added a bunch of thriller type horror movies to my list on the Tubi app. There are a lot of different horror movies on there. I prefer thrillers. I wish I could find Ghost Story (1981) somewhere free.

The Invitation (2015). “A man accepts an invitation to a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife, an unsettling affair that reopens old wounds and creates new tensions.”
This was a very slow moving thriller, making you guess throughout the movie. The last 20 minutes is crazy! Let me know if you have seen this, and what you thought.
I thought it moved a little too slowly. It’s approximately 1 hour and 35 minutes. I would’ve cut it to 1 hour 15 minutes.

The Dead Centre (2018) - Ending was good otherwise Zzzzz 4/10

The Guest (2014) - Old review still stands:

From a few things I'd heard and read this last year I went into this expecting a really intense thriller of sorts not the black comedy that I felt it was. Not necessarily a bad thing. I had a hoot with the ludicrousness of it all, Dan Stevens' facial reactions and just about died at the part when he was described as if he was some sort of Terminator. Also loved that it was set around Halloween, Silver Shamrock masks and all and how it went off into fun slasher mode at the end. Nothing amazing but good fun! 7/10

Traumnovelle (1969) - While I prefer the beautiful, haunting sights and sounds and extra creepy aspects of Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, this German TV version is also really good. Very dreamy and tense at times. Woulda got a higher score only it died a death the last ten minutes. 7/10

The American Haunting (2011) - I bought it in a 3 for a quid deal forgetting I'd seen this mess years ago and given it a 1/10. So I just went into it to laugh at it and boy did I ever! The Dad's breakdown was the best! 4/10

Also watched a fun short done in the style of a slideshow Das Clown (1999) 7/10 and a Halloween Poirot, Hallowe'en Party (2010) 6/10

I recently saw a new film that won't be released until next year. From Greg Sestero (of Tommy Wiseau's The Room fame): Miracle Valley. It's pretty whacky and a lot of fun. I asked Sestero what influenced him, and he said The Hills Have Eyes and Race with the Devil. Absolutely true. It's a 70s-style throwback film, with much better filmmaking than Tommy Wiseau, but with some goofy, off-kilter humor. Not bad for a first horror film.

ParaNorman (2012) - Even better second time around. Just so adorable and had a little tear at the end. 9/10

Abattoir (2016) - I wasn't too sure about this at first. But as the mystery and ghostly atmosphere grew I really got invested. The ending killed me. 7/10

The Driller Killer (1979) - I liked this better than the first time I saw it, but I was expecting something completely different then. The majority of it is like a hangout film just with a different kind of drilling! It bothered me how he kept leaving all of his pizza crusts. The last quarter was wonderfully depressing. 7/10

Scream In The Dark (1943) - Fairly dull murder mystery. Just glad it was only 55 minutes. 4/10

Schizo (1976) - This is brilliant, one of my favourite Pete Walker films. Even though I thought I remembered the outcome it's written and directed so well that I was still questioning everything all the way through. It also has a few savage kills and one of the oddest seance scenes I've ever seen. 9/10

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977) - Magic 9/10

The Conjuring II (2016) - For just the Enfield Case alone I probably slighty prefer the 2015 miniseries The Enfield Haunting. But as a whole package with The Warrens, bit of Amityville Horror and the nun and that I really enjoyed this, more than the first film. 7/10

Born Again (2016) (Tostevin) - Fun satanic short. 6/10

White Zombie (1932) - "We understand each other better now."

One of the most bone chilling moments of any horror ever! *Shudder* This is my favourite zombie film. I hadn't watched it for a number of years though and I found the time away made that second half in the castle genuinely much more terrifying. I'm so immune that it's rare to have me all shaken during and after a horror film like that. I'm right there with the characters friggin' helpless with the actions of this voodoo lunatic, yikes! And now I keep hearing those horrible sounds of the zombie workers pushing the machinery around and around in the mill! Utterly fabulous film. 10/10

Mom And Dad (2017) - Funny but I wanted more Cage freakouts. 6/10

Game Night (2018) - Gets in here by the narrowest of margins. Very similar to Date Night (2010) which I slightly preferred. 7/10

A Touch Of Sin (2013) - More of a crime anthology but hey ho. A very mixed bag. 6/10

C.H.U.D. (1984) - Oh my GOODNESS!!! I cannot believe this is the first time I've watched this film. It is COMPLETELY up my street! A perfect blend of dingy crime investigation/drama/horror. It has well fleshed out likeable characters, perfect pacing, cute monsters, nice splat, grubby arseholes and all that beautiful, beautiful 80s GRAIN, oh how I adore thee <3 So many familiar faces and I particularly loved the guy who ran the soup kitchen who was one of the gits from Home Alone and a really sympathetic copper for a change. I was going to give it a 9 but screw that my mind is blown, wow [Big Grin] 10/10
