First one this month...



Savini does it again. Nasty. Also the film that got Zito the Friday gig.

I do love the WW2 angle and the killer's outfit and it's something that adds an even more terrifying aspect to an already horrible and deranged killer.

Re: Your October movie-binging plans (Halloween month, DUH) Part II: Dead by Dawn

In addition to movies, I also like to watch Halloween and Horror themed episodes of 80s cartoons I loved as a kid.

These include:

"House of Shokoti" Parts 1 and 2 from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
- No Skeletor, no Teela, no Man-At-Arms, almost no Castle Greyskull, no problem. The show's only two part adventure details He-Man and friends' search for the House of Shokoti, the evil temple of a dark sorceress that once ruled over the Dark Side of Eternia. This two parter has monsters galore, two creepy villains (Shokoti in part 2 and her follower, Lord Masque, in part 1), and an overall more horror based story than the status quo from this show.

"The Ghost Warrior" from Thundercats
- In addition to being my favorite episode of Thundercats and this story adding much to the mythos of the series, this episode is at its core, a ghost story as the Thundercats have to deal with the evil spirit of Grune the Destroyer.

"Spitting Image" from Thundercats
- Mumm-Ra plays Dr. Frankenstein in a sense as he creates a clone of Panthro and uses the ghost of Hammerhand the pirate to give it life. The clone destroys everything in its path and the real Panthro is blamed for its actions. The scenes in Mumm-Ra's laboratory (where the fuck did he get that anyway?) are what make the episode for me and make it fitting for this time of year, but Panthro clone is a pretty fierce villain for the series too.

"The Phantom Brigade" from GI Joe
- Cobra Commander has had some wacky schemes in his day, and this one ranks among the top of the list as he hires a gypsy to raise the spirits of three long dead warriors to combat GI Joe.

"Dweller in the Depths" from Transformers
- This post movie episode explores the history of the Transformers creators, the Quintessons, and also gives us a heck of a horror story as well. The Quintessons trick Galvatron and the Decepticons into unleashing ancient cybernetic monsters from Cybertron's core, one of which is an energy leech that turns Transformers, Autobots and Decepticons alike, into zombie like energy vampires themselves.

"The Curse of Castle McDuck" from Duck Tales
- Scrooge takes his nephews to his ancestral home, which is believed to be haunted by a demon dog that chased the McDucks out of the castle hundreds of years ago. This is a creepy ghost story for the show that explores Scrooge's history as well as his own fears.

"Ducky Horror Picture Show" from Duck Tales
- We get to see Duck World versions of classic movie monsters like The Wolf Man, Frankenstein and his bride, Dracula, The Blob, and various others, making this a fun and loving tribute to the icons of horror cinema's past.

And pretty much any episode from The Real Ghostbusters would fit, though the one I like to watch the most is "Citizen Ghost" as it is basically a better Ghostbusters 2 than Ghostbusters 2.

Re: Your October movie-binging plans (Halloween month, DUH) Part II: Dead by Dawn

The first six days of Halloween I watched: An American Were Wolf in London (1981), Jaws (1975), The Omen (1976), Dead Ringers (1988), Under the Skin (2013), The Uninvited (1944), and The Innocents (1961).

Mixing different of horror over the month. Multiple movies over the weekend and once per work days (weekdays).

WCW fans who can't let go of the past are killing pro-wrestling today. There I said it.

Not a movie, not horror, but my nine year old son and I have vowed to watch a Simpson's Treehouse of Horrors episode every night of October in the lead up to Halloween.

Now that I'm a week in I'm really wishing I started with the latest episode and worked backwards. We started with the best episodes and are building towards the significantly weaker ones.

Finished the The Shining. Slow burn. Pay off.

Re: Your October movie-binging plans (Halloween month, DUH) Part II: Dead by Dawn

Last night I watched Freaks (1931) and The Man Who Laughs (1928)

I had never seen them before, but always knew about them and I was glad to finally check them out.

Freaks was considered horrifying and controversial for its time with its real, up front, and centered focus on circus freak sideshow attractions. Nowadays, it doesn't seem like that big of a deal, but I could definitely see how people 80 years ago would have been a little uncomfortable with it. The movie has a good basic story and a unique setting and cast that helps it to stand out, and the climax is downright chilling. However, it is a little choppy and underdeveloped in places...mainly because roughly half an hour was ripped out of the film following a re-edit after its original release. That footage is sadly lost and the completed film will never be seen again. Very sad, but the film as is makes for a good watch. Also, to be honest, the cast of "Freaks" is very charming and likable.

The Man Who Laughs is a silent movie from 1928 that I've always heard was the inspiration for The Joker. Having known that, I was glad to finally get around to seeing it. It isn't really a horror film or very fitting to Halloween, and the inspiration for Joker is purely from the look of the main character and nothing else. That said, I REALLY enjoyed the film. It works a story of tragedy and romance, and I was shocked at how much I felt the plight of the titular Man Who Laughs. I was also amazed at how the actor was able to convey different emotions like sadness, despite having a frozen smile on his face the whole time. It was very effective, and I kind of want this to get a remake, which is rare for me to want, but I'd like to see if an actor can pull this off in a film with sound.

Not really "Halloween" themed but a guilty pleasure, all the same, it's a murder after all....

I’ll binge watch the old Halloween movies and probably watch the new one too. Might watch the old school Nightmare on Elm Street too.
