31 Days of Halloween 2017 #1 – Jigsaw (2017)

Jigsaw is back.  Nuff said.  Or is he?  That’s the number one mystery selling this movie, because it certainly isn’t the gore, plot or atmosphere.  And this is not the first time a… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #2 – The Christopher Lee Disco

It’s Dracula man, can you dig it?  Don’t chuckle at Dracula AD 1972 man, just chill.  Kitsch can be cool.   It’s a modern Dracula story, made in response to other contemporary tales like… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #3 – The Vagrant – 80s or 90s?

I think it’s interesting how quickly the 80s disappeared and the 90s appeared with a new age, Saved by the Bell, Melrose Place persona.  The Vagrant (1992) is highly resistant to this trend,… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #4 – Beetlejuice is gimmicks?

Roger Ebert once said that Beetlejuice (1988) is all about gimmicks, not characters.  This is before Michael Keaton showed he was much  more than a wacky, one-dimensional comedy star.  He would later dispel… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #5 – House of Dark Shadows

This movie was shown on TCM, so it has to be good, right?  House of Dark Shadows is about the return of Barnabas and his interactions with the usual band of Collinsport characters.… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #6 – Hospital Massacre (1981)

So I heard about this movie through reputation and from some slasher fans, but I can’t say I’m impressed.  The one point to this movie is Barbi Benton.   She’s in this movie because… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #7 – Sleepaway Camp

Sleepaway Camp is a trip.  The acting sure is strange in this movie.  I mean, it’s bad, but it’s sorta bad on purpose, with people acting freakish and weird to sorta illustrate how… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #8 – Is the word ninja really plural?

I learned two things after watching Ninjas vs Monsters (2015), first that the plural of ninja is ninja and the title is wrong as a result.  Oh and hey, there are monsters.  Interestingly… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #9 – The Final Generic Terror

So we’re back in the 80s with another slasher, but this time it’s even more generic than a remake of Dementia 13.  I can see why this one disappeared for a very long… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #10 – Remake some Dementia

Dementia 13 was first made by Francis Ford Coppola and Roger Corman, but I discovered it has a remake.  Joy.  I can’t even remember this being released, but apparently it was made in… Continue reading

31 Days of 2017 #11 – I Walked with a Zombie

I Walked With a Zombie is a an oldie, and not like any Romero zombie film you may have seen.  So this one’s all about voodoo.  Who doo?  Voodoo.  That’s right.  As a… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #12 – Batman 1966, the last one with King Tut

This episode has no Mummy, but it is the last appearance of the villainous King Tut, who discovers the secret identity of Batman!  Holy identity crisis, Batman!   Ok so I was fooled into… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 – #13 – Bad Dreams (1988)

Bad Dreams (1988) tries and fails to be as good as Nightmare on Elm Street.  This movie specifically tries to emulate Nightmare on Elm Street 3:  Dream Warriors, which was released the previous… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #14 – Chopping Mall (1986)

With an original title of Kill-Bots, you know this movie has to be fun.  Chopping Mall (1986) is directed and made by B-Movie legend Jim Wynorski, who brought us such classics as Cheerleader Massacre… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2017 #15 – Lore – Episode 1

Lore investigates pre-mature burial and does Robert Stack proud.  With dramatizations like that in Unsolved Mysteries or maybe Rescue 911, Lore documents real life folklore, like superstitions and less-than-scientific beliefs. So this show… Continue reading
