Krystal (krystallee6363) | 771 comments I'm just gonna re-watch Supernatural from season 1 for my horror viewing this month, though I do have a tradition of watching The Wolfman (the really terrible one with Benicio del Toro) on Halloween.

Though it could be a good time to re-watch the other horror movies I have ... hmmm.

You're going to have a busy month. :)

According to BingeClock, that will take 13 days and 7 hours.

Funny you should mention that Krystal as I started watching Season 1 of Supernatural last night. I have the first five seasons on dvd, so I haven't watched them all in a long time. I do have a horror movie collection as well, but I miss watching the early seasons of the Winchesters. :-)

I just recently bought the 14th season but since it's been a while since I watched S13 and lockdown has given me an abundance of time, I thought it would be a good opportunity to re-watch from the beginning! It's definitely fun seeing how much the characters have grown from the early days of the series!

With the movies I've picked to probably watch, for some reason I seem to be on a 2005 kick. (Though I've taken a break with The Conjuring.) It was a good year for horror.


message 17: by Monica (new)

Monica Go | 569 comments I watched 3. Tales from the hood and 4. Antrum. I enjoyed both of them in different ways. I wouldn t say that Antrum is so distirbing as they made it up to be though.


message 18: by Alan (new)

Alan | 5183 comments Mod
Antrum was decent and different, but it was a schtick. However, a movie like that 40+ years ago would have had a more gruesome reputation.

Yes I agree. I think we have to consider the time period. I actually really enjoyed it , the concept was good. I wasn't sure wether to give it a 3 or 3 and a half.

I watched recently:
5. Creepy
6. Scary stories to tell in the dark
7. Coherence
8. Killing ground
9. The killing of a sacred deer

Coherence was a trip! And TKOFSD was very unsettling and weird. Creepy wasn't bad either. But they both were too long I think.

Coherence was great. If you haven't seen it, look for +1. It's a similar trippy film.

I'll definitely check it out!

Yesterday I watched
10. Ready or not. I think this will be a movie I will rewatch all the time. Really enjoyed.

I'm finding myself not as inspired as I usually am. Kinda just dragging random DVDs out I haven't watched in awhile.

I need to stop watching new stuff and stick to movies I love. So far the three new ones I watched mostly sucked. :/

Re animator and The sacrament are worth a watch definitely (even a re-watch Re-animator)! And Little shop of horror very very fun!

Gretel & Hansel and Books of Blood. New movies this year that weren't good. And I hadn't seen I Am a Ghost before. I didn't know how fortunate I was.

Been forever since I watched Alien or Aliens. They never get old.


message 30: by Michael (new)

Michael | 114 comments I just noticed this thread, so I'm hitting it late. While I wasn't actively trying to do 31 days of horror movies in October, I've definitely passed 31 if you count the individual episodes of a couple of TV series. Here's what I can remember going through so far this month:

1. Vivarium
2. In a Dark Place
3. The Tag-Along
4. Fury of the Demon
5. Mr. Mercedes - Season 3 (10 episodes)
6. The Houses October Built
7. The Houses October Built 2
8. The Little Stranger
9. The Turning
10. Alien
11. Alien (2003 Director's Cut)
12. Sea Fever
13. The Shrine
14. Hell House LLC
15. Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel
16. Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire
17. The Haunting of Bly Manor (9 episodes)

Some notes: I finally broke down and bought one of the digital bundles of all of the Alien movies. I watched the original and then realized the bundle also included the 2003 director's cut, so I turned around and watched it.

In a Dark Place, The Turning & The Haunting of Bly Manor are all part of my kick of watching adaptations of 'The Turn of the Screw'. Bly Manor is the first thing associated with James' story I've comes across that I didn't think blew goats. It took me two tries separated by about 25-30 years to finish reading the novella as it bored me to tears, and every movie version I've watched was equally "Meh". (Bly Manor, on the other hand was fantastic because of all it added.)

20. The hole in the ground
21. Cherry falls
22. November
23. Altered states
24. Tragedy girls
25. Antiviral
26. Audition
27. Disturbing behavior
28. Lake Mungo

My favorites were definitely Lake Mungo (very very chilling at times I have to admit) and Disturbing behavior (i'm a 90s' bitch), Audition too. Also Altered states was good. November was very weird but very very beautiful. Antiviral also weird.

Today I'm gonna watch Oldboy (even if not really horror like a few others I guess) and tomorrow I'm gonna marathon Halloween 1 and 2 for tradition.

It's the movie I show to all my friends and family and they all end up loving it.

Krystal (krystallee6363) | 771 comments In the Halloween movie spirit, I watched Doom last night - it's so terrible but it does make me laugh! Also I love that Karl Urban is billed higher than The Rock. I'd completely forgotten The Rock was even in it!

Tonight will be my annual viewing of The Wolfman. I really do have a soft spot for the truly terrible stuff.

Doom is so underrated. From that era of video game adaptations it's the only one that actually managed to make footage look just like the game. And it had the BFG! Now I have to go find my copy and rewatch.

I have to say, my favourite part is definitely when it mimics the game exactly, takes me back to some good memories.


message 41: by Michael (new)

Michael | 114 comments I went on right by 31 this month. Unless I knock another out tonight, which probably won't happen as my wife isn't a Horror fan, here's where I finished:

19. Carrion
20. The Witches (HBO Max version)
21. Summer of 84
22. The Haunted Mansion
23. To Your Last Death
24. Grave Encounters

26. Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum
27. The Tag-Along 2
28. The Promise
29. The 3rd Eye
30. Evil Eye
31. The Axe Murders of Villisca

I watched 2 today since it was Halloween, but I have so many TV shows and things on Netflix/Hulu/Disney+/TubiTv to watch, plus I want to get a decent amount of reading time in, I just can't bring myself to rewatch more than 1 movie a day.
