I've just seen Night of The Demons (1998) on DVD.

This is actually a pretty decent B-movie. It has good special effects, and a nice soundtrack.

I'd recommend this to anybody who loves cheesy 80s horror.

7/10


Next up is Lifeforce (1985)

Has anybody ever seen this?

Ok. I've just finished watching this, and am pleased to report, that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The first thing I have to point out is -- it's not scary at all. At least I didn't think so. It's probably more a Sci-Fi/Fantasy thriller than anything else.

Despite that, I found it to be fast paced and full of nudity, er, I mean action. Ok, not so much action.

The special effects were adequate, given the time this movie came out. It also has an excellent soundtrack composed by Henry Mancini.

N.B

There are 2 versions of this movie, 101 mins & 116 mins.

I saw the 116 mins version, and by all accounts, this is the version to watch.


7/10

Anyway...anyone see this one, and is it any good? Only $2.99, so if it's no good, I can live with that.

Wolfen is a good movie, I mentioned it at some point in this thread. Anyway, the beginning is my fav part.

Well, "Night of the Demons" is a cult classic about a bunch of teens that party in an old funeral parlor on Halloween night. Unfortunately, the land that 'Hull House' is on is evil. And the house itself has a brutal past. Where would be a better place to party on Halloween than at Hull House folks?

So, they party there. Stuff happens and then they decide to do a seance. I don't know if it was the seance that resurrected the demonic spirit, or if it was just the fact that the demon was free to walk the earth on Halloween night and the timing was right on the money? Either way, things start going downhill from there.

Kev- I do the same thing to my husband! I get new DVDs and filter them in with the old ones in our cabinet. If he happens to find it, he usually asks "when did we get this?". My response is always "oh, we've had that for a while". And he always buys it!!

Finally got my copy of Night of the Demons today and had to watch it tonight. I always loved this one back in the day. Saw it on cable numerous times and I'm glad I own it now. Got the unrated version too....more blood and gore! The kid brother, Billy, is hilarious. This is a must see for the Halloween run.

Looks like Frank N. Furter's brother there if I may say so--either that or he spent the night at a power plant that got hit by lightning.

I've just seen Galaxy of Terror (1981)

Decent B-movie. Robert Englund is in it -- It's strange to see him without his trademark jumper & claws.

Joanie from "Happy Days" was also in it.

Has anybody ever seen or heard of this?

OK. So, Freddy Krueger, Joanie from Joanie Loves Chachi, and My Favorite Martian walk into a bar. No, no, this isn’t a joke — I’m pretty sure it must have happened during the filming of "Galaxy of Terror", an awesome little movie made inexplicably entertaining by b-movie legend Roger Corman and a very young James Cameron. If you don't take this flick too seriously and just enjoy the ride, it is actually quite entertaining.

I just watched the Funhouse. It was pretty good, slow getting started but decent overall.

Last night was The Legend of Hell House, 1973. Gotta love the creepy thrillers from the 70's.

Should get a chance to watch a few horror movies this weekend, as I'm feeling under the weather....so I'll be fairly low key. I'll let yas know what I watch.

Well I got Bloody Birthday in the mail today so I guess I'll watch it next. Or maybe I'll watch House of 1000 Corpses again. Haven't seen that one in awhile.

House of 1000 Corpses....love that one Petty. Zombie rocks!

Nowhere....I just got The Legend of Hell House on DVD a couple of weeks ago. I thought that I never saw it before until I started watching it and began remembering parts of it. I must have been a kid when I last saw it. Very good....I recommend to all.

Pettyfan-I really like Bloody Birthday..I think you'll like it...it's weird to see Julie Brown (from MTV) in a movie...and the kids are really creepy.

I ordered "Visiting Hours". I plan to watch it next week.

I was gonna order Visiting Hours from Amazon but I didn't have enough left on my gift card, LOL, so I'll try again.

I saw Bloody Birthday years and years ago but I don't remember much.

"Blood Birthday" is about three 10 year old kids that were born during a total eclipse that blocked Saturn as well. And Astrology states that Saturn controls emotions. So basically these kids grew to be vicious emotionless killers. Because they are so young and innocent looking, nobody suspects them.

When it comes to haunted birthdays, I'm more of a "Happy Birthday To Me" fan.
