    Every October I watch at least 1-2 horror movies a day. I watch a ton of horror movies all the time, but October it's 100% guts/gore! :twisted:

    Day 1
    The Eye (not the crappy US remake)
    Nosferatu (1922)


    For some reason these both paired well together.

    Anyone else?

    2 a day is more movies than I can generally assimilate, but I also love watching horror in October, and usually cap it with one of the early classics on Halloween evening. Last year it was James Whale's "Frankenstein," an exceptional movie that I've loved since I was a kid. I'd forgotten how Expressionist it is ... Whale clearly saw "Cabinet of Dr. Caligari."

    Love the big ones like "The Shining" and "The Exorcist" and "Night of the Living Dead" but I'm feeling the need for some real cheese this year. Vincent Price, Hammer, maybe even some gawdawful '80s slasher pics which I've avoided for a long time (got sick of them in the '80s.) Definitely going to try to tackle some of the Val Lewton B-pictures that I've never seen, like "The Leopard Man" and "I Walked With A Zombie."

    this is gonna be a great thread. Thanks for sharing Kevlo.

    I have a soft spot for Pet Sematary and Arachnophobia.
    and I'll definitely be watching a bunch of "Are you afraid of the dark?" episodes.

    oh my crap... i'd totally forgotten about "arachnophobia"... going to have to watch that again, i think.
    i'm planning on at least a mini-marathon of "evil dead" movies.

    Whoa, you're right. That could easily have been on one of the old "Pebbles" collections.

    LOL... because exposed cleavage need not worry about explosive decompression, obviously.
    but for the guys with guns, it's an issue.

    definitely going to be hitting up Trick r Treat some time this month. not sure it'll be a solid stream of movies but i hope to catch up on a few classics i've never seen. might also pull a couple things from guidetohorrorfilms, a pretty dense blog with compact, informed reviews.

    If you like Nosferatu you might like Shadow of the Vampire... It's one of those gems, you may have seen in the past..

    Started my horror fest over the weekend watching Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Return of the Living Dead. Big fan of those two movies.

    My original movie poster:

    This weekend probably be watching Fright Night (1985) and Wolfman (1941) or American Werewolf in London.

    Yesterday I watched Happy Birthday to Me on something called crackle on my PS3, I have no idea what crackle is but just saw that movie was on it so I watched it. So thanks crackle, whatever you are.

    Tonight I think I might go by the video store and browse the racks old school style.

    Agreed - love the title song! Almost better than 'Save the Earth', from G vs H. Great dumb movie all around! I have hung onto my VHS version for years and had given up on a dvd release.

    We watched Dead & Buried last night, which I had never seen before; weird, surreal, silly and quite entertaining flick from ’81. Very Lovecraftian- the plot is highly reminiscent of both “A Shadow Over Innsmouth” and “Cool Air”.

    Anyway, really crazy to see this pic you posted here, tooth, as D&B has a VERY similar shot of a guy bandaged in pretty much identical fashion!

    I spent hours scouring internets and video stores for Dawn of the Mummy yesterday, no luck so far, anyone have a rip of it they can throw up on some file sharing thing? Movie file swap maybe?

    Holy clothwrap, GaraMan! I've been wracking my brain for a couple of years now trying to remember where I saw that excellent echo that you've posted. I feel like I've lanced a boil now that you've unintentionally solved this mystery for me!
    I loved Dead & Buried. It is sort of goofy, but continued to surprise throughout. Very different from The Tenant, but both films have a unique and affecting tone. AND contain two of the three best post-Invisible Man facial wraps in cinema.

    Hiroshi Teshigahara's The Face of Another rounds out the top shelf.

    Gary Sherman, the guy that did Dead & Buried, has another film I quite like as well:

    better know today as

    It's an extremely entertaining pre-C.H.U.D. post-Moreau story about what really happens beneath the tunnels of London's Underground.

    Amazing movie. I also recently saw his film "Pitfall," a great and very strange ghost story. Come to think of it there are countless Japanese ghost story movies that would be good to see this month. Good time to revisit "Kwaidan."

    My earliest memory of the bandaged face image is seeing Claude Rains as "The Invisible Man" on old Creature Features broadcasts. Then later "Eyes Without A Face" and a moment in "Birdy" when Nick Cage's character realizes that his war injuries are permanent. Mummy Boys!
