Horror Challenge October 2016

91. The Secret of Crickley Hall s01e03 (2012) 6.5/10

Not a bad ending, a little underwlhelming but not bad overall for a TV movie.

92. The Walking Dead s07e01 (2016) 8.5/10
93. The Walking Dead s07e02 (2016) 7/10

Wow, powerful opening on the premiere that carries through the rest of the episode, impressive. The second episode is more what I'm used to seeing, a bit odd but interesting. God awful cover of Don't Think Twice, It's All Right, though.

94. Channel Zero: Candle Cove s01e02 (2016) 6.5/10

Not as good as the first episode, but it's still early so I'm not too worried yet.


That's all from me for this year. Didn't get as far around the world on my round-the-world personal challenge (went from Peru to Ukraine), but I started late and was forced to focus a lot of attention on clearing up space on my PVR (hence the huge number of TV episodes). Best film by a healthy margin was Audition, and, to my surprise, the best TV episode was this season's premiere of The Walking Dead.

Thanks for hosting, Mighty!

71. Ngo joh ngan gin do gwai (2002)[My Left Eye Sees Ghosts] 8/10
This wasn't horror at all, despite the imdb tag, though it does have ghosts and spiritual possession. It's really just a wacky romantic comedy with some crazy supernatural aspects to the story. It's really fun, though so it was a nice light way to finish the month.

8 The Kiss of the Vampire 1963
9 Dracula Has Risen from the Grave 1968
10 The Gorgon 1964
11 The Reptile 1966
12 Old Mother Riley Meets the Vampire 1952
13 Hocus Pocus 1993

I finished with two comedy horrors, the Old Mother Riley being the last of a series featuring a drag artist Arthur Lucan, who also was a music hall and radio star and many of his films but not this featured his wife who was Irish who plays his daughter, but they split up before this final film of his, Bela Lugosi stars also

Hocus Pocus I thought was funny, but funny I had not seen it before, guess that goes to show I had no interest in anything horror related much in the past..

170. Embodiment of Evil (2008)

172. The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (1976)

That'll do it for me. Didn't achieve (nor did I plan to near) the 200 I got last year, but I did reach my goal of one feature and one short from each of the last 100 years. Additionally, I watched a film from every continent including Antarctica.

76. Night of the Dark Full Moon / Deathouse / Silent Night, Bloody Night (Theodore Gershuny, 1972) 7--/10

So much for 'Black Christmas' being the first American slasher... Even the premise of 'Halloween' is already in this film, just that there is also a lot of other stuff going on aside from it. Possibly the first, and by far my favorite 70's American slasher, also because it plays with the notion of a haunted house/ghost. While neither clever nor particularly well-made I found it to have a certain visceral and spooky quality, especially thanks to the narration and the music.

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 stabs.


77. Body (Dan Berk & Robert Olsen, 2015) 6-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams.


78. The Old Dark House (James Whale, 1932) 3+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams.


79. Children of the Damned (Anton Leader, 1964) 5/10

[10 min]. Blood (Philip Ilson, 2000) 2/10

I know what you saw last night!Show
#Night 1#

1. House of Mortal Sin (Pete Walker, 1976) 2/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for a crazily self-righteous priest in a very conventional British B-movie that in 2016 also feels hopelessly dated (I mean an old priest having the hots for the adult women who visit his confession booth instead of for the altar boys who ring his bell and scrub his cross, what a ridiculous notion!).

2. Green Room (Jeremy Saulnier, 2015) 6-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 Heil Hitlers for a reasonably unclichéd but cinematically bland and ineffective non-horror film.

3. Goodbye Gemini (Alan Gibson, 1970) 6/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 swinging shrieks for a pretty intriguing and promising buildup, but instead of the horror getting started in the second half it just slowly fizzles out into almost complete irrelevance.


#Night 2#

4. &#21127;&#22580;&#29256;&#12288;&#38646;&#12288;&#12476;&#12525; / Fatal Frame (Mari Asato, 2014) 8/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 teary-eyed shudders for its eeriness that stems from desires that are as confounding as they are agonizing, so much so that they are manifested as ghostly visions and actions caused by forces beyond people's own will.


5. Event Horizon (Paul W.S. Anderson, 1997) (2nd+ viewing) 7-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 self-molesting screams for squandering a promising horror concept with (too few) descriptions of the unspeakable horrors awaiting on the other side of the universe, which have all the eloquence of a 10-year-old's essay about Hell scribbled down in a hurry while sitting in the bus on the way to school, the best of which probably still was "where we're going, we won't need eyes to see" (where's Lovecraft when you need him?), instead this action sci-fi film mostly opts for visual depictions that are equally as sophisticated (maggots, cut up bodies, maggots, fountains of blood, and maggots) and filling a lot of runtime with what's basically "Solaris goes slasher horror".


6. 31 (Rob Zombie, 2016) 2/10

RIP Rob Zombie - Thank you for 'House of 1000 Corpses'. I will miss you.

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 hillbilly hollas because unfortunately screams of horrific disappointment don't count.


Didn't finish: Spasmo (Umberto Lenzi, 1974) [7 min]


#Night 3#

7. Nightmares (Joseph Sargent 1983) 3+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 Teufelsnagetiere (devil's rodents) for having f-ck all to do with nightmares, unless silly little stories with conclusions that can't even be said to have some kind of moral can be called nightmares.


8. Strasek, der Vampir (Theodor Boder, 1982) 4/10

https://vimeo.com/ondemand/strasek

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 hollow screams for being like a (completely vampire-less) Swiss Dreyer film...after Dreyer watched Herzog's 'Nosferatu' a hundred times and then proceeded to make an ultra-low budget film with nothing to say or even really a story to tell but figured that a relentlessly tootling synthy score would be enough to make it worthwhile.


#Night 4#

9. The Truth About Emanuel (Francesca Gregorini, 2013) 6+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 moans for a sad psycho-drama about loss with some suspense/mystery elements - definitely not a horror film (for this I didn't find it sad enough), even its thriller thrills are pretty mild, but the damage is done.


10. February / The Blackcoat's Daughter (Oz Perkins, 2015) 9-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 5 out of 10 screams for leaving me in a constant state of anticipation; for totally delivering in the second half in completely unpredictable ways; for showing the murderous dangers of having a one-track-mind; for striking a brilliant balance between groundedness and unsettling mysteriousness; for evoking a certain loneliness by making clear that even if other people are friendly and helpful to each other everyone is basically on their own; for knowing that there are no villains but that every person has issues; for not even making me wonder why the perpetrator did what the perpetrator did but for instead making me accept that it is about showing that you can never know what goes on in another person, yet once it does get a little into the perpetrator's motivations it finds a beautifully non-conclusive middle-ground between psychology and spirituality/demonic possession; and for being as tragic as it is unsettling - while the reactions so far seem to be very mixed I am confident that this one still has to find its audience and will be a film with a lot of lasting power, and if nothing goes wrong I'm sure that we will hear many more great things from Oz Perkins in the future.


11. The Incredible Melting Man (William Sachs, 1977) 1/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 ATCHKAs for being incredibly melty.


#Night 5#

12. A Thief in the Night (Donald W. Thompson, 1972) 7/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out 10 preachings about God for being dumb yet sort of thrilling raptureploitation; for feeling like a charmingly home-made community effort that is not only pretty solid but in its own small way has ambitious filmmaking that is strangely suggestive (especially great: the mindful match cut editing and the variety of music); for its trippy ending that suggests an eternal hell for the ones that have been left behind; for the time.....is near.

13. Hangman (Adam Mason, 2015) 7-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out 10 silent creepers living in your house for taking voyeurism to the next (more immediate) cinematic level (in fact being the only film I can think of where voyeurism is used in any decently unsettling way); and for the final section that taken on its own is nothing special but which I found surprisingly effective, the accumulation of this family's mundane everyday life footage did something to me without my realizing it and consequently infused this event in the end that we have seen before a thousand times in movies with resonance.


14. The Beast with Five Fingers (Robert Florey, 1946) 2/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 fears, but ten tears for poor Peter Lorre giving his all and wasting his energy on this stinker.


15. The Cottage (Paul Andrew Williams, 2008) 6/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for what is to an extent a British variant of 'From Dusk Till Dawn'.

Hilarit-E-Meter: 2 out of 10 laughs.


Didn't finish: The Forest (Jason Zada, 2016) [19 min]

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for having no Nazis (or even wolves really).


17. A Distant Thunder / A Thief in the Night II: A Distant Thunder (Donald W. Thompson, 1978) 4/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams.


#Night 7#

18. Gremlins (Joe Dante, 1984) (2nd+ viewing) 5+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 cackles by green monsters who just wanna have fun for a film that alludes to so many possible allegorical readings (a cautionary tale about being a responsible pet owner/parent, suburban paranoia, xenophobia, consumerism, the dangers of technology, modern man messing with nature), but none of which stick, so it ends up being a hollow experience full of random references to pop culture, classic movies and Spielberg's and Dante's own work as a substitute for actual jokes - possibly the first major production guilty of this(?), so thanks very much, 'Gremlins'.


19. Phase IV (Saul Bass, 1974) (2nd viewing) 8/10 (from 9)

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 high-pitched ant screams for some people would rob their mother for ants, rat snitch on one another for ants, sometimes kids get murdered for ants, so before we go any further I want my ants!

[6 min]. Phase IV - "lost ending" (Saul Bass, 1974) (3rd viewing) 9/10

[5 min]. Total Skull AKA Rob and Sheri Moon Zombie Fan: The Fan Movie (Josh Hasty, 2011) 2/10

#Night 8#

20. Blue Movie (Alberto Cavallone, 1978) 1/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 rapes.


21. &#38738;&#12356;&#27836;&#12398;&#22899; / Blue Lake Woman / Aoi numa no onna (Akio Jissôji / Akio Jissoji, 1986) 6/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for this supernatural melodrama shot in typically distinctive Akio Jissôji fashion with striking-looking (video) images.


22. The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? (Ray Dennis Steckler & camera operator Vilmos Zsigmond, 1964) (2nd viewing) 3/10 (from 1)

Thrill-O-Meter: Eh...well, at least it isn't formulaic.


23. Lights Out (David F. Sandberg, 2016) 5+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 cries for help in the dark for finding a way for visualizing fear of the dark (solution: a perpetually backlit naked witch with anger issues) even though the story has zero to do with fear of the dark; and for fickle electricity.


#Night 9#

24. The Day of the Triffids (Steve Sekely & and David Lynch cinematographer Freddie Francis, 1962) 4/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for a nice collection of horrifying "what if..." scenarios (alien invasion through killer plants, most of the population going blind, an airplane "trapped" in the air because everyone is blind, escaped convicts taking over a crowded mansion of blind "womenfolk" to help party it down like an American band,...) turned into a typical laughable 50's sci-fi B-movie (even though it was already the 60's) that is no less dumb than the average MST3k movie but thanks to keeping things varied and some decent production values it isn't painfully dull at all.

Hilarit-E-Meter: 1 out of 10 laughs.


25. The Watcher in the Woods (John Hough & Vincent McEveety, 1980) 5/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for a very typical (but perfectly watchable) "ghost-haunts-female-character-to-find-peace-in-the-afterlife" horror movie with the distinction of having a convenient super-happy sappy ending that goes way beyond supernatural to veer straight into fantasy territory, but it's a Disney movie, so what else could you expect?


Didn't finish: The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (Larry Blamire, 2001) [11 min]
Didn't finish: True Love Ways (Mathieu Seiler, 2015) [19 min + ending]
Didn't finish: From the Dark (Conor McMahon, 2014) [30 min + ending]


26. Friend Request (Simon Verhoeven, 2016) 7/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 2 out of 10 *screams* for a sensibly told thriller that very much gets the overlap and interplay between online and offline life and excellently translates it into cinematic storytelling, unfortunately I wasn't quite on the same page as the film with the supernatural elements that were introduced later on, because while those fairly generic "horror hallucination" sequences worked OK enough on their own I kept looking for rational explanations (the fact that the cameras recorded different things than what the characters saw seemed to support that reading), but as became clear by the end, the film fully embraced the supernatural angle. So, I think there was a considerably better film in there (in the down-to-earth part) but unlike in the thematically similar 'Unfriended' (overall they are very different films, though) there unfortunately isn't a successful synthesis of relevant themes connected to social media issues and the plot's supernatural elements...but this is still my favorite German-produced English-language horror movie set in California that was shot in South Africa with Australian, British and American actors. Easily.


27. The Cat and the Canary (Paul Leni, 1927) 5+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 silent screams for a nice creepy castle, which in combination with the framing that gives an unusually large amount of headroom, emphasizing the size of the rooms, does half the work; for the quite creative opening sequences that especially called to mind Epstein's "House of Usher" film for me - and while the whole thing runs out of steam pretty soon it maintains a minimum of atmosphere even through all the shenanigans.


28. The Unearthly (Boris Petroff, 1957) 1+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 "Time for go to bed."


#Night 11#

29. &#22320;&#19979;&#24187;&#29128;&#21127;&#30011; &#23569;&#22899;&#26943; / Midori / rough translation of original title: "Underground Projected Dramatic Pictures: Maiden Camellia" (Hiroshi Harada, 1992) 7-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 mild screams of despair purely for the intense ending that doesn't hold anything back, having endured and gotten through misery and extreme abuse for some time without killing herself thanks to an unwarranted hope of things getting better, the protagonist finally gets to have some very tangible hope for a brighter future, having this bubble burst ironically is worse than all the lows she experienced hitherto, creating an intense feeling of the whole world being against her, like everyone has always hated and deceived her, which is translated into an ending that brought to mind the devastating conclusion of Mulholland Dr. for me.


30. The Ninth Gate (Roman Polanski, 1999) (2nd viewing) 6/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for a whole lotta disappointing nothing.


31. The Vatican Tapes (Mark Neveldine, 2015) 3+/10

32. Histoires extraordinaires / Tales of Mystery and Imagination (by Edgar Allan Poe) / Spirits of the Dead (Roger Vadim & Louis Malle & Federico Fellini, 1968) 8-/10

1) "Metzengerstein": 8
2) "William Wilson": 7
3) "Toby Dammit": 7-

Thrill-O-Meter: 2 out of 10 screams
- for poignant tales about simple unfulfillment commanding ones life, told with great nuance and cinematic richness in what is the second-most-brilliant horror anthology that I recall seeing.


33. Teenagers from Outer Space (Tom Graeff, 1959) 3+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 moody teens throwing a tantrum due to hormonal imbalance even though they are aliens played by grownups, but they certainly act like teens.


34. The Invitation (Karyn Kusama, 2015) 9-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 4 out of 10 screams
- for capturing so much of the weirdness, group dynamics and strange feelings that emerge during dinner parties;
- for feeling like identification figure Tom Hardy is surrounded by soap opera actors even though there is neither a Tom Hardy nor is everyone else a soap opera actor (in other words for having you wonder if you are the weird one or if everyone else is...or to quote the trailer: "A near perfect balance between suspicion and paranoia);
- for getting into an uncomfortable situation, then having all your suspicions confirmed but now you are stuck in the middle of this situation regardless and you have to recalculate everything you thought true and deal with it just like everyone else;
- for its character arc that ends up being an ironically painful and traumatic catharsis to what was originally a painful and traumatic experience;
- for its final punch creating a sense of an impending apocalypse.

Thrill-O-Meter: 2 out of 10 expressionist screams in a beautiful nightmare
- for turning theatricality into uncanniness;
- for having principles (like swearing revenge) tested, by knowing that sticking to them means making a close relation/loved one your enemy;
- for the brightest, whitest, illuminated people and objects surrounded by complete, deep, pitch-black darkness, and stuff dropping in and out of light like a motherf-cker;

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 screams
- for showing that everyone is looking for answers, and religion makes everything so easy;
- for showing that everyone likes having a purpose and that in times of emotional distress one often tries to either ignore it or tackle it indirectly, and helping a child in need who is the daughter of a famous and rich actress comes in very handy;
- for becoming what you fear as a horrid weapon against rape and a self-destructive method of self-preservation.

76. Night of the Dark Full Moon / Deathouse / Silent Night, Bloody Night (Theodore Gershuny, 1972) 7--/10

So much for 'Black Christmas' being the first American slasher... Even the premise of 'Halloween' is already in this film, just that there is also a lot of other stuff going on aside from it. Possibly the first, and by far my favorite 70's American slasher, also because it plays with the notion of a haunted house/ghost. While neither clever nor particularly well-made I found it to have a certain visceral and spooky quality, especially thanks to the narration and the music.

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 stabs.

#Night 1#

1. House of Mortal Sin (Pete Walker, 1976) 2/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for a crazily self-righteous priest in a very conventional British B-movie that in 2016 also feels hopelessly dated (I mean an old priest having the hots for the adult women who visit his confession booth instead of for the altar boys who ring his bell and scrub his cross, what a ridiculous notion!).

2. Green Room (Jeremy Saulnier, 2015) 6-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 Heil Hitlers for a reasonably unclichéd but cinematically bland and ineffective non-horror film.

3. Goodbye Gemini (Alan Gibson, 1970) 6/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 swinging shrieks for a pretty intriguing and promising buildup, but instead of the horror getting started in the second half it just slowly fizzles out into almost complete irrelevance.


#Night 2#

4. &#21127;&#22580;&#29256;&#12288;&#38646;&#12288;&#12476;&#12525; / Fatal Frame (Mari Asato, 2014) 8/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 teary-eyed shudders for its eeriness that stems from desires that are as confounding as they are agonizing, so much so that they are manifested as ghostly visions and actions caused by forces beyond people's own will.


5. Event Horizon (Paul W.S. Anderson, 1997) (2nd+ viewing) 7-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 self-molesting screams for squandering a promising horror concept with (too few) descriptions of the unspeakable horrors awaiting on the other side of the universe, which have all the eloquence of a 10-year-old's essay about Hell scribbled down in a hurry while sitting in the bus on the way to school, the best of which probably still was "where we're going, we won't need eyes to see" (where's Lovecraft when you need him?), instead this action sci-fi film mostly opts for visual depictions that are equally as sophisticated (maggots, cut up bodies, maggots, fountains of blood, and maggots) and filling a lot of runtime with what's basically "Solaris goes slasher horror".


6. 31 (Rob Zombie, 2016) 2/10

RIP Rob Zombie - Thank you for 'House of 1000 Corpses'. I will miss you.

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 hillbilly hollas because unfortunately screams of horrific disappointment don't count.


Didn't finish: Spasmo (Umberto Lenzi, 1974) [7 min]


#Night 3#

7. Nightmares (Joseph Sargent 1983) 3+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 Teufelsnagetiere (devil's rodents) for having f-ck all to do with nightmares, unless silly little stories with conclusions that can't even be said to have some kind of moral can be called nightmares.


8. Strasek, der Vampir (Theodor Boder, 1982) 4/10

https://vimeo.com/ondemand/strasek

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 hollow screams for being like a (completely vampire-less) Swiss Dreyer film...after Dreyer watched Herzog's 'Nosferatu' a hundred times and then proceeded to make an ultra-low budget film with nothing to say or even really a story to tell but figured that a relentlessly tootling synthy score would be enough to make it worthwhile.


#Night 4#

9. The Truth About Emanuel (Francesca Gregorini, 2013) 6+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 moans for a sad psycho-drama about loss with some suspense/mystery elements - definitely not a horror film (for this I didn't find it sad enough), even its thriller thrills are pretty mild, but the damage is done.


10. February / The Blackcoat's Daughter (Oz Perkins, 2015) 9-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 5 out of 10 screams for leaving me in a constant state of anticipation; for totally delivering in the second half in completely unpredictable ways; for showing the murderous dangers of having a one-track-mind; for striking a brilliant balance between groundedness and unsettling mysteriousness; for evoking a certain loneliness by making clear that even if other people are friendly and helpful to each other everyone is basically on their own; for knowing that there are no villains but that every person has issues; for not even making me wonder why the perpetrator did what the perpetrator did but for instead making me accept that it is about showing that you can never know what goes on in another person, yet once it does get a little into the perpetrator's motivations it finds a beautifully non-conclusive middle-ground between psychology and spirituality/demonic possession; and for being as tragic as it is unsettling - while the reactions so far seem to be very mixed I am confident that this one still has to find its audience and will be a film with a lot of lasting power, and if nothing goes wrong I'm sure that we will hear many more great things from Oz Perkins in the future.


11. The Incredible Melting Man (William Sachs, 1977) 1/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 ATCHKAs for being incredibly melty.


#Night 5#

12. A Thief in the Night (Donald W. Thompson, 1972) 7/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out 10 preachings about God for being dumb yet sort of thrilling raptureploitation; for feeling like a charmingly home-made community effort that is not only pretty solid but in its own small way has ambitious filmmaking that is strangely suggestive (especially great: the mindful match cut editing and the variety of music); for its trippy ending that suggests an eternal hell for the ones that have been left behind; for the time.....is near.

13. Hangman (Adam Mason, 2015) 7-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out 10 silent creepers living in your house for taking voyeurism to the next (more immediate) cinematic level (in fact being the only film I can think of where voyeurism is used in any decently unsettling way); and for the final section that taken on its own is nothing special but which I found surprisingly effective, the accumulation of this family's mundane everyday life footage did something to me without my realizing it and consequently infused this event in the end that we have seen before a thousand times in movies with resonance.


14. The Beast with Five Fingers (Robert Florey, 1946) 2/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 fears, but ten tears for poor Peter Lorre giving his all and wasting his energy on this stinker.


15. The Cottage (Paul Andrew Williams, 2008) 6/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for what is to an extent a British variant of 'From Dusk Till Dawn'.

Hilarit-E-Meter: 2 out of 10 laughs.

17. A Distant Thunder / A Thief in the Night II: A Distant Thunder (Donald W. Thompson, 1978) 4/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams.


#Night 7#

18. Gremlins (Joe Dante, 1984) (2nd+ viewing) 5+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 cackles by green monsters who just wanna have fun for a film that alludes to so many possible allegorical readings (a cautionary tale about being a responsible pet owner/parent, suburban paranoia, xenophobia, consumerism, the dangers of technology, modern man messing with nature), but none of which stick, so it ends up being a hollow experience full of random references to pop culture, classic movies and Spielberg's and Dante's own work as a substitute for actual jokes - possibly the first major production guilty of this(?), so thanks very much, 'Gremlins'.


19. Phase IV (Saul Bass, 1974) (2nd viewing) 8/10 (from 9)

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 high-pitched ant screams for some people would rob their mother for ants, rat snitch on one another for ants, sometimes kids get murdered for ants, so before we go any further I want my ants!

[6 min]. Phase IV - "lost ending" (Saul Bass, 1974) (3rd viewing) 9/10

20. Blue Movie (Alberto Cavallone, 1978) 1/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 rapes.


21. &#38738;&#12356;&#27836;&#12398;&#22899; / Blue Lake Woman / Aoi numa no onna (Akio Jissôji / Akio Jissoji, 1986) 6/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for this supernatural melodrama shot in typically distinctive Akio Jissôji fashion with striking-looking (video) images.


22. The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? (Ray Dennis Steckler & camera operator Vilmos Zsigmond, 1964) (2nd viewing) 3/10 (from 1)

Thrill-O-Meter: Eh...well, at least it isn't formulaic.


23. Lights Out (David F. Sandberg, 2016) 5+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 cries for help in the dark for finding a way for visualizing fear of the dark (solution: a perpetually backlit naked witch with anger issues) even though the story has zero to do with fear of the dark; and for fickle electricity.


#Night 9#

24. The Day of the Triffids (Steve Sekely & and David Lynch cinematographer Freddie Francis, 1962) 4/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for a nice collection of horrifying "what if..." scenarios (alien invasion through killer plants, most of the population going blind, an airplane "trapped" in the air because everyone is blind, escaped convicts taking over a crowded mansion of blind "womenfolk" to help party it down like an American band,...) turned into a typical laughable 50's sci-fi B-movie (even though it was already the 60's) that is no less dumb than the average MST3k movie but thanks to keeping things varied and some decent production values it isn't painfully dull at all.

Hilarit-E-Meter: 1 out of 10 laughs.


25. The Watcher in the Woods (John Hough & Vincent McEveety, 1980) 5/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for a very typical (but perfectly watchable) "ghost-haunts-female-character-to-find-peace-in-the-afterlife" horror movie with the distinction of having a convenient super-happy sappy ending that goes way beyond supernatural to veer straight into fantasy territory, but it's a Disney movie, so what else could you expect?


Didn't finish: The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (Larry Blamire, 2001) [11 min]
Didn't finish: True Love Ways (Mathieu Seiler, 2015) [19 min + ending]
Didn't finish: From the Dark (Conor McMahon, 2014) [30 min + ending]


26. Friend Request (Simon Verhoeven, 2016) 7/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 2 out of 10 *screams* for a sensibly told thriller that very much gets the overlap and interplay between online and offline life and excellently translates it into cinematic storytelling, unfortunately I wasn't quite on the same page as the film with the supernatural elements that were introduced later on, because while those fairly generic "horror hallucination" sequences worked OK enough on their own I kept looking for rational explanations (the fact that the cameras recorded different things than what the characters saw seemed to support that reading), but as became clear by the end, the film fully embraced the supernatural angle. So, I think there was a considerably better film in there (in the down-to-earth part) but unlike in the thematically similar 'Unfriended' (overall they are very different films, though) there unfortunately isn't a successful synthesis of relevant themes connected to social media issues and the plot's supernatural elements...but this is still my favorite German-produced English-language horror movie set in California that was shot in South Africa with Australian, British and American actors. Easily.


27. The Cat and the Canary (Paul Leni, 1927) 5+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 silent screams for a nice creepy castle, which in combination with the framing that gives an unusually large amount of headroom, emphasizing the size of the rooms, does half the work; for the quite creative opening sequences that especially called to mind Epstein's "House of Usher" film for me - and while the whole thing runs out of steam pretty soon it maintains a minimum of atmosphere even through all the shenanigans.


28. The Unearthly (Boris Petroff, 1957) 1+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 "Time for go to bed."


#Night 11#

29. &#22320;&#19979;&#24187;&#29128;&#21127;&#30011; &#23569;&#22899;&#26943; / Midori / rough translation of original title: "Underground Projected Dramatic Pictures: Maiden Camellia" (Hiroshi Harada, 1992) 7-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 mild screams of despair purely for the intense ending that doesn't hold anything back, having endured and gotten through misery and extreme abuse for some time without killing herself thanks to an unwarranted hope of things getting better, the protagonist finally gets to have some very tangible hope for a brighter future, having this bubble burst ironically is worse than all the lows she experienced hitherto, creating an intense feeling of the whole world being against her, like everyone has always hated and deceived her, which is translated into an ending that brought to mind the devastating conclusion of Mulholland Dr. for me.


30. The Ninth Gate (Roman Polanski, 1999) (2nd viewing) 6/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 screams for a whole lotta disappointing nothing.


31. The Vatican Tapes (Mark Neveldine, 2015) 3+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 "Your mother sucks cocks in hell".


Didn't finish: The Pact (Nicholas McCarthy, 2012) [11 min]

32. Histoires extraordinaires / Tales of Mystery and Imagination (by Edgar Allan Poe) / Spirits of the Dead (Roger Vadim & Louis Malle & Federico Fellini, 1968) 8-/10

1) "Metzengerstein": 8
2) "William Wilson": 7
3) "Toby Dammit": 7-

Thrill-O-Meter: 2 out of 10 screams
- for poignant tales about simple unfulfillment commanding ones life, told with great nuance and cinematic richness in what is the second-most-brilliant horror anthology that I recall seeing.


33. Teenagers from Outer Space (Tom Graeff, 1959) 3+/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 moody teens throwing a tantrum due to hormonal imbalance even though they are aliens played by grownups, but they certainly act like teens.


34. The Invitation (Karyn Kusama, 2015) 9-/10

Thrill-O-Meter: 4 out of 10 screams
- for capturing so much of the weirdness, group dynamics and strange feelings that emerge during dinner parties;
- for feeling like identification figure Tom Hardy is surrounded by soap opera actors even though there is neither a Tom Hardy nor is everyone else a soap opera actor (in other words for having you wonder if you are the weird one or if everyone else is...or to quote the trailer: "A near perfect balance between suspicion and paranoia);
- for getting into an uncomfortable situation, then having all your suspicions confirmed but now you are stuck in the middle of this situation regardless and you have to recalculate everything you thought true and deal with it just like everyone else;
- for its character arc that ends up being an ironically painful and traumatic catharsis to what was originally a painful and traumatic experience;
- for its final punch creating a sense of an impending apocalypse.

Thrill-O-Meter: 2 out of 10 expressionist screams in a beautiful nightmare
- for turning theatricality into uncanniness;
- for having principles (like swearing revenge) tested, by knowing that sticking to them means making a close relation/loved one your enemy;
- for the brightest, whitest, illuminated people and objects surrounded by complete, deep, pitch-black darkness, and stuff dropping in and out of light like a motherf-cker;
- for people-flying-through-the-air scenes that are more intense than in any kung-fu film;
- for, like, the "grove-iest" forest ever, man.

Thrill-O-Meter: 1 out of 10 screams
- for showing that everyone is looking for answers, and religion makes everything so easy;
- for showing that everyone likes having a purpose and that in times of emotional distress one often tries to either ignore it or tackle it indirectly, and helping a child in need who is the daughter of a famous and rich actress comes in very handy;
- for becoming what you fear as a horrid weapon against rape and a self-destructive method of self-preservation.

76. Night of the Dark Full Moon / Deathouse / Silent Night, Bloody Night (Theodore Gershuny, 1972) 7--/10

So much for 'Black Christmas' being the first American slasher... Even the premise of 'Halloween' is already in this film, just that there is also a lot of other stuff going on aside from it. Possibly the first, and by far my favorite 70's American slasher, also because it plays with the notion of a haunted house/ghost. While neither clever nor particularly well-made I found it to have a certain visceral and spooky quality, especially thanks to the narration and the music.

Thrill-O-Meter: 0 out of 10 stabs.

28 - The Crazies (Seen this after the remake. It's a bit like proto-troma style without the gore. It's ok, especially considering the budget, but imo the remake was better)
29 - Murders in the rue morge [1932] (nice)
30 - Comedy of Terrors (Actually really funny at times. Price is best in this kind of role)
31 - House of Dracula [1945] (at least is was short)

Halloween (or any other arbitrary event/holiday for that matter) is just another excuse for extensive drinking (but alongside anything usual I drank 7 'quality beers' for 15 quid in total (unfortunately I don't remember their names) indicating I was sufficiently unhinged for having spent so much money), so unfortunately I didn't make it to 34 like I did last year. But to take the inverse conclusion - 32 means I haven't done as much work as I wish I did. Yeah, these remarks are just post hoc discrediting to fallaciously hope they'll contribute to "overcoming and self-improvement". "This confession meant nothing."
I did watch some amazing films that'll occupy my mind for a long time though:

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

23. Messiah of Evil, by Willard Huyck (1973) 8/10

Some corny stuff, but the overall direction is superb and inspiring.

That will be my end of this challenge. It started well, but my going on vacation kind of killed it for me... I'll do better next time. My favorite title for this challenge is the seventh victim, by Mark Robson (and mostly Val Lewton).

9/10

50. Les démons / The Devils (1973)
This was a disastrous attempt by Franco to rip off Ken Russel's The Devils. How can you make a movie about lesbian nuns, torture and witchcraft and make it so painfully boring? The sex and violence is all muted and the story is confused, repetitive and stupid.

Oct. 31. Wicked City (1987) 6.8 / 7.3% / 6

Managed to slip one last movie in yesterday. This was exactly the tentacle-fucking palette cleanser I needed to end the season with.

Written and directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri, who is the master of Japanese horror animation. He is best known for Ninja Scroll (1993), but he is also responsible for two of my own top rated anime horror: Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust (2000) and the 'Running Man' segment of Neo Tokyo (1987).

Wicked City wasn't my favorite story, but the art and animation were well worth the price of admission. (... which was free. Off of Pirate Bay. But we won't talk about that.)

Ok bitches, I watched 35 movies and about 9 hours of TV shows, for a qualifying total of 44 movies. Mostly Had fun. Completely wasted time. Didn't even get my gotdam TSZDT bronze because I watched too many obscure flix :(

See ya'll next year.

7. Shura (1971) 8.2 / 21.5% / 7
8. Ms .45 (1981) 6.8 / 9.6% / 7
9. Green Room (2015) 7.1 / 8.8% / 6
10. Julia's Eyes (2010) 6.7 / 4.8% / 6

Coming out on top was Chasing Sleep (2000), a creepy, very obscure, low budget Jeff Daniels movie that keep things claustrophobic and pleasantly ambiguous.

It's interesting that my top 5 all have low ratings on IMDb but high ratings on icheck.

My Top 10 (excluding Simpsons and South Park episodes)

1. Vampires 7/10
2. The Visit 7/10
3. Bride of Chucky 7/10
4. The Howling 7/10
5. Don't Breathe 7/10
6. The Funhouse Massacre 7/10
7. Monster Brawl 6/10
8. My Bloody Banjo 6/10
9. Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers 6/10
10. Nightmare Sisters 6/10

Nothing amazing, although Vampires may be the coolest vampire movie of all and The Visit was an out-of-left-field surprise.
