Yes, Mother's Day is very creepy. The sons are lunatics. It kinda reminded me of the orginal Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Very violent and disturbing movie but I highly recommend it. Check out the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47NgeareOM8

Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

I think that this is even better than the original Amityville Horror (1979).
But this movie is actually a prequel.

Cool old school effects and some great make-up.
Jack Magner looked really evil [Cool]

It was also nice to see Diane Franklin in her second feature film,
right after The Last American Virgin.

Day 13 - This flick is for Ronnie !!

 -

"Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" was the fourth and initially intended be last installment of the Friday the 13th movie franchise. The film proved so popular that seven additional sequels and a reboot have been made since this movie was released in 1984.

 -

Picking up directly after the end of "Friday the 13th: Part III", the film follows the infamous Jason Voorhees as he stalks teens at Crystal Lake. The film features truly unforgettable performances by both Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover.

 -

I really like the mixture of 80's favs in this flick.. you also get to see Kimberly Beck, Judie Aronson, and Lawrence Monoson in different types of roles than the movies that they are best known for by most of us.

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter is not just a must see for horror fans, but for anyone who considers themselves a fan of 80's horror.

The teaser for this movie is Crispin Glover's incredible dancing skills:

What's your fav "Friday the 13th"? Mine is actually Part 2, but this one is right there with it!

aTomiK....Amittyville 2 scared the crap out of me as a kid. My parents were pretty flexible with what they allowed me to watch, but this typically wouldn't have been allowed. Anyway....they let me watch it, and it scarred me for life!

Valley....Jason X is actually my favorite......NOT! I own all the Friday the 13ths (except Jason X), but it's been a while since I've seen them all....I'll try to watch a few before Halloween and get back to you on this one...

Day 14 - Gothic (1986)

 -

Director Ken Russell applies his trademark excess to this surreal, experimental examination of the creative dementia which shaped Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein. The story is embellished from events which allegedly took place at the Swiss villa of Lord Byron (Gabriel Byrne) on the night of June 16, 1816. Byron's guests include poet Percy Shelley (Julian Sands) and his future wife Mary (Natasha Richardson); Mary's half-sister Claire (Myriam Cyr) and Byron's leech-happy personal physician Dr. John Polidori (Timothy Spall). Byron promises them a night of horror like only a mad poet can deliver -- after partaking of laudanum and other hallucinogens, the guests tell ghost stories while exploring the dark corridors of his home. From here, Russell dives headlong into madness, discarding plot structure in favor of fever-dream setpieces in which the guests confront living manifestations of their own fears and insecurities -- creative, mortal and sexual, among others. 

I must have passed the VHS tape 25 times before I finally rented this bizarre movie.  The movie was a crazy ride that had a haunting feel to it throughout.  The premise was intriguing, but the VHS cover might still be the scariest part!

Muffy, the Trick r Treat movie is really good. It has an 80s feel to it.

Valley, I tried several times to watch Gothic. I never could get into it.

Day 15 - Silent Scream (1980)

 -

When Scotty Parker and three other students move into Mrs Engels' boarding house on the coast, they soon begin to suspect that something strange is happening.  Mrs Engels hides away in her attic room and her son Mason is a creepy character who likes to watch violent TV shows. Then one of the students is brutally killed leaving Scotty and the rest questioning why..

"Silent Scream" is a rather creepy slasher that kind of got lost between "Halloween" and "Friday the 13th".. Rebecca Balding is awesome as Scotty. And most people will recognize Barbara Steele who played the daughter Victoria Engels who was quite the scream queen back then.  Great scene where they enter a room and she appears to be looking into a mirror.

Oh and great to see Lily Munster in this film as well.  You might know the two detectives that seemed a bit slow to react even though they had all the clues early on.

I think what made this movie so interesting was the seaside mansion setting.  Some people say that it has several parallels to the movie "Psycho".. creepy mansion, weird son and mother.. and very large knife!

If you think you've had a strange life.. just wait until you meet Mason..

Ditto on Trick r Treat...watched it last year and loved it...I'll try to squeeze it in again this year. I find it hard to decide whether to watch my old favorites that I know and love, while still trying to fit in a few new ones that I haven't seen...

Just finished watching Fright Night. Some horror movies just don't hold up over the years but this one sure does. The vampires look very menacing. Kinda reminds me of what they did with the werewolf in An American Werewolf in London. Now I've gotta track down the sequel. The dvd price is through the roof! Guess I'll have to track down a cheap VHS copy or laserdisc.

Yeah Valley...tonight may finally be the night. My wife will be out helping a friend decorate for a wedding tommorow, so, once my little guy is in bed...hoping to watch a couple of Halloween flicks, starting with "Night of the Comet".

A bit confused though, so maybe someone can clarify....I know "Night of the Comet" is a cult classic and talked about on here quite frequently, but I may have mixed it up with Night of the Creeps...is this the same style of movie, a sequel, or nothing like "Comet". I know I could invest the time and find out for myself by searching through older threads, but this way is quicker and more fun....can someone enlighten me?

Kev.. from this point forward please use 'NotC' .. that way it applies to either movie just in case you have a Freudian moment.  Right Ronnie?   [Big Grin]

Both movies are 80's awesome zombie flicks that fall squarely in Tiffany's description of why she enjoys movies like "Chopping Mall".  Horror with a touch of comedy that flows perfectly.  The movies have actually nothing to do with each other, except maybe both were overlooked in the 80's.  

Night of the Comet - Tempest, DMK, Comet Zombies, Cheerleader, Neon Lighting, Valley Girl Album, Imitation Uzis, REG, the attack of Eddie Munster, Santa Hector..    

Night of the Creeps - Sorority Babes, College Geeks, Comet Zombies, Screamin' Banshees, Go Monster Squad, Axe Murder, Dead Formal Dates, Blowtorch, Thrill Me..

I love both movies, but if I had to choose .. it would be NofC

I love love love............Creeps and Comet! I think Kev should get on watching both of them.....I can see why you'd put Chopping Mall in the same catagory but something just went flat on Chopping Mall for me....the humor wasn't AS great? It was all killbots at the end...both NoTC's I can watch over and over and would recommend to everyone!

i recently watched a movie Muffy suggested called House of the Devil and i recognized a lady in that movie, she was the government lady in Night of the Comet and she was also in Chopping Mall. but i mainly remember her as principle Togar in Rock and Roll Highschool.

i have the soundtrack for Comet.. love the song,
Hard Act To Followby Diana Dewitt

if i had to choose between NotC and NotC, i choose NotC...as in Night of the Creeps. [Smile]

I seem to be in the minority here. I didn't like Chopping Mall at all. I don't think it's "so bad it's good", it's just "bad". I really like Killer Klowns From Outer Space, though. Such a cheesefest.

Personally, I might watch Neon Maniacs for Halloween. Chances are I'll watch The Monster Squad. And/or maybe Gremlins 2. I might give Return Of The Living Dead a shot, as a first (if I can keep myself from watching it before); I watched Part II the other day and absolutely loved it. If part 1 is in the same vein of the second, I know I'll love it.

I appreciate this thread.

Simoneer.. all opinions are welcome and I totally understand how you could see "Chopping Mall" as a bad movie.

Also, the original "The Return of the Living Dead" is incredible!!

Wait Muffy.. I was just referencing Tiffany's comment about "Chopping Mall" and why she considers it classic 80's horror. My own thoughts are that "Chopping Mall" is great late night fun, but if you want me to compare it directly to "Creeps" or "Comet" .. it just can't compare. Both of those are B-movie horror magic!
