I actually really enjoyed it. I wasn't too sure at the beginning, but it picked up, and like Valley pointed out, is one of the goriest movies I've ever seen.

I was really impressed with most of the death scenes.

It was also cool to see Robert Englund and Tony Todd -- albeit *briefly*.

i have waxworks on dvd,great movie,a lot of fun,i've always liked deborah foreman and zach galligan .

never seen part 2 though, was it any good?

at the moment i am just in the process of watching 1988 slasher flick hide and go shriek about a group of college kids shut in a furniture store with a cross dressing psychopath,i have it on a dutch dvd,i'm sure it's the uncut version, not seen it for a few year,but think i remember thinking it was pretty decent!

Valley, I do not recognize any of the guest actors. I think it is probably due to the show having been filmed in Canada. I think the guest actors are all Canadians, and I have yet to see one I know, with the exception of the guy from Just Shoot Me ( I can't think of his name right now- Enrico something?).

Just watched Blood Song (1982) aka Dream Slayer in the UK.

It was a good horror movie starring Donna Wilkes (Jaws 2, Angel) Frankie Avalon, Richard Jaeckel,
Antoinette Bower, William Kirby Cullen and Dane Clark.

Lots of Halloween influences in this one: mental institution escape, small town during autumn,
pulsating synth score, killer waiting in his van near the schoolyard and hiding behind hedges etc.

Not a bad Halloween flick, check it out guys!

I'm on episode 4 (A Cup of Time).

A mysterious teacup gives an elderly woman the power of eternal youth -- at a cost.  -


It's an OK series so far. Apparently it gets better midway through the season, so we'll see.

I kinda wish I picked up "The Outer Limits" or "The Twilight Zone" instead.

Day 4 Cont: I also watched "The Howling" last night.

Not in the same league as AAWIL, but pretty good nonetheless. The transformation scene was spectacular -- as was Elisabeth Brooks.

Day 5:

"Basket Case" for me tonight. This was a blind buy, so I'm hoping it doesn't suck too much.

Basket Case may be an acquired taste, but it definitely does NOT suck !
I'm very curious about how it looks on blu-ray though. Apparently Frank Hennenlotter and
Something Weird Video had new source materials to work with, and created a brand new transfer.
I think the extra's are the same as on their special edition dvd from a decade ago.

Basket Case and its sequels aren't my favorites of Hennenlotter's films. I love Brain Damage, Bad Biology, and, of course, the inimitable Frankenhooker.

Watched the 80s version of the Invaders from Mars (1986) last night.
The last time i saw this was in the late 80s.

Definitely not as effective as it was back then but it´s still fun Cannon group horror film for kids.

Directed by Tobe Hooper and featuring a typical b-movie cast.
I still loved the atmosphere, the great settings and old school effects and puppetry.
I also like the score, composed by Christopher Young, very much.

Still entertaining movie if you don´t take it too seriously.

Invaders from Mars (1986) - Theatrical Trailer

This is just an OK remake. The 1953 original, while obviously not nearly as technically proficient, is still the better film. Tobe Hooper, apart from a couple of episodes of "Nowhere Man," hasn't done anything even halfway decent in over 20 years. A shame...

I didn't even know Halloween 2 came out. I liked the 2007 original remake.

Is 2 really that bad? It seems hard to believe considering how good the first one was.

@j2me - awsomely scary movie for me, i love werewolf movies...not a pinch at all on american werewolf in London though...just a different clss of movie in my opinion...howling is a little freakier but from a cinemaphotography point of view and of course a great werewolf 80s embassador movie for our beloved decade you cant (for certain) and i challenge an argument from anyone...AWWIL is just awsome.
