150. Witchboard (1986)
151. The Car (1977)
152. Leviathan (1989)
153. Incubus (1966)
154. A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Finally watched the Freddy remake, I guess I was on board for some of the movie, I even kinda liked the darker backstory but ultimately they completely botched Freddy's look. Craven and Englund just got it completely right, don't try to do it better.

FTV:33:Ju-on: The Curse (2000) (The Grudge) 7

Image

Filmed on low-res digital video, (a popular format used on low budget Horror in the early 2000’s) for the straight to video market, writer/director Takashi Shimizu & cinematographer Nobuhito Kitsugi cleverly use the flatness from the low-res shooting format to give the horror shocks a stinging atmosphere, with the panning shots round the house sliding straight into the jump-scare ghosts. Performing the eerie sound-effects himself,Shimizu covers the house in a prime J-Horror atmosphere of people chillingly standing round completely still, and the thrilling sight of Kayako Saeki crawling towards her first victim. The first in the series to get the official “Ju-On” title, the screenplay by Shimizu centres a loose anthology of six stories around a cursed house with a grudge. Speeding by in 70 mins, Shimizu allows each tale to place another layer of despair and ghostly screeches in a house which holds a grudge.

I've got you last at 42 so you're at 50 now, I think.

d. Tales from the Darkside: Inside the Closet (Savini, 1984) [23 mins]
The Haunting of Hill House is solid but a bit slow-going so far. Battleground and Inside the Closet, while not amazing, are still stand-out episodes of their respective series.

26. Bad Moon (Red, 1996)
An OK werewolf film that opens with its best scene of werewolf carnage and then never manages to top it. Telling the story from the point of view of the dog is a good idea, but they only partially commit to it so the story doesn't have the uniqueness it could have had. Nice werewolf costume and makeup, pity they just use computer morphing for the transformation.
low 5/10

Image

27. Ghost Shark (Furst, 2013)
Another shark film, but this time... the shark is a ghost! Better than other SyFy original films I've seen purely for the ghost shark concept and the sometimes hilariously goofy kills that result from a cheap CGI shark that can manifest anywhere there is water. Everything else about the film is awful, but it's good for a few laughs.
4/10

Image

28. The Strangers 2: Prey at Night (Roberts, 2016)
The characters from the original are back to terrorise a new family, but with less suspense, less tension, and a lot less logic. It's mediocre to bad, but it does have a few occasions where it works, particularly a set-piece attack by a swimming pool that is far better than anything else in the film, almost like a different director turned up to make it.
4/10

10. Halloween 2 (2009) - 7/10

Rewatch. So much better than Zombie's first one. I'm still not sold on everything going on here, and I think the film would be better off with some significant changes to the surreal scenes, but the rest of it is actually a pretty emotional look at people suffering from severe PTSD. Doesn't quite hit greatness for me but I do feel it's a strong work overall and gets way, way too much hate.

96. The Night Stalker (John Llewellyn Moxey, 1972)

Don't know if I ever saw the TV series that came out of this - I'm fairly certain I didn't see it when originally on air in any case - but I may look into it now. Darren McGavin is Kolchak, a sensation-hound Las Vegas reporter (really nice use of locations here) on the trail of a bunch of weird murders in which young women are killed at night, their blood sucked out, and teeth marks...hmmm. Kolchak goes for the vampire angle early on but his boss and the various members of the Vegas PD, sheriff's office and local government do not, and Kolchak of course has to end up being the one to save the day. Pretty good production values for a TV movie of that period, and an AMAZING cast, particularly if you're a fan of 40s-50s noir and crime stuff - in addition to the great McGavin we have Ralph Meeker, Charles McGraw, Elisha Cook Jr, Kent Smith (star of the Cat People films which I just re-watched above) and Claude Akins, and the lovely if weakly used Carole Lynley as McGavin's girlfriend. This is solidly done though the TV editing is tiresome, and I like the way the vampire is portrayed - immensely strong and fast, invulnerable except to sunlight and a stake. I'll have to take a look at that series, though unfortunately the amazing cast doesn't return for it apart from McGavin and Simon Oakland as his irascible boss (who apparently moves with him to Chicago where the series takes place? or maybe just plays a different character).
He's the same Tony Vincenzo in both movies and the series. He makes a comment (I think in The Night Strangler) about getting fired, after Kolchak was fired, because of Kolchak's story.

Hi peeptoad. It's from the Brazilian 'As Boas Maneiras' (Good Manners), which, among many other things, is also a werewolf film... It wears all the lycanthrope cinematic references on its unpredictable sleeve, but I think the first hour (with a sense of quiet dread that reminds Denis or Polanski) is much more interesting than the slightly more traditional second one; always fascinating though, I certainly recommend it. :cheers:
Thanks JD. I added this to my watch list (also have Coisa Ruim on that list, so good to see you liked it), but Iam not a fan of musicals, so hopefully that aspect is a bit understated. ;)

The Purge comes with a fascinating premise. It may well raise unanswered questions (insurance companies?; wouldn't rape be more prevalent than murder?) but it is fascinating to watch as focus is given to one privileged family who come under siege during the annual event. Rhys Wakefield is excellent as the excessively polite college student who antagonises the clan, calmly stating and restating his "right to purge" and there is a lot to like in how the protagonists are forced to act rather than just deflect responsibility for what occurs outside.

132. Night Warning (1982) a.k.a. Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker
Billy's aunt goes nuts and murders Billy's gay basketball coach, expecting Billy to cover for her. But as a homophobic police detective starts circling in, accusing Billy of killing his coach is a lover's quarrel, and with the bodies piling up, does Billy stand a chance of making it out of all of this alive? This was an interesting movie that was slow at times but had a pretty engaging climax and an oddly progressive view for an early 80's horror movie (the homophobic detective is painted as a bad guy). I'd say it's worth a watching despite not being entirely successful.

Image
133. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016)
Humanity's time has come to an end if the Umbrella Corp. has anything to say about it, but there's an anti-virus that can stop the T-virus and allow humanity to live if only Alice can get to it in time. Man, this movie was stupid. Just full of plot holes. Like, right out of the gate, it blatantly contradicts the origins of the T-virus the second movie setup. It just seems to relish in obnoxiously fast cuts action scenes and contrived plot twists that you can see coming from a mile away. A few entertaining moments can't really save this junk ending for a junk franchise.

Image
134. The Son of Kong (1933)
Denham, the guy that kidnapped Kong in the first movie, through a series of dumb events, gets stuck on Skull Island and meets up with Kong's adorable son. So this one lacks a lot of the thrills of the previous movie but its always nice to see stop motion creatures in action and Son of Kong makes for a cute monster in action which makes the ending all the more tragic.

Image
135. Blood and Lace (1971)
After her mother and lover are beaten to death with a hammer, Ellie is sent to a jacked up orphanage run by a cruel caretaker and her handyman, Uncle Leo from Seinfeld. Other than the first person hammer tracking shots, this one is pretty dull with almost a TV movie feel to it.

Image
136. The First Purge (2018)
Going back to where it all began, the NFFA party chooses Staten Island as a breeding ground for their purge experiment, offering money to those who participate. Overall, this one was pretty decent as far as the action goes but the plot was so ludicrously heavy-handed (when the government starts invading the territory to murder the black disenfranchised, they're donned in KKK hoods) that I was constantly sighing at how obvious it all was.

I've always liked Stephen King more when he doesn't write about supernatural stuff. This film felt like a poor ripoff of Stand By Me (a film I really liked), stripping out all the characterization and back story and focusing on some stupid monster. The film was fine, but felt very conventional and not at all scary.

Nice to see you enjoyed 'The Night Stalker', OldAle. I watched 'The Night Strangler' a couple of mornings ago and found lots of points of interest in this sequel (I haven't seen 'The Night Stalker'). Nice locations and an intriguing cast once again (Margaret Hamilton, John Carradine). The ending in the underground lair was a bit tame (and a montage of highlights with the end credits made it feel much more television-like). McGavin made for a pleasant and somewhat irascible and irrepressible lead in his blue suit and straw hat. I liked it enough to watch any other Kolchak entries that come my way.

Amazing to think nowadays how many people tuned in across America for the 'Film of the Week'! ABC certainly scored winners with this pair.

Wonderful viewings!
The TV series continued to impress too, Roger. Although it became a bit formulaic, there were always plenty of character bits on hand fleshed out by a great cast of regular and supporting actors. This was just about my favorite TV series as a kid and it remains high on the list. For a series that ran only part of a single season it has quite a cult following - and for good reason.

31. The Hills Run Red (Parker, 2009)
An attempt to take a meta-cinema approach to the torture porn genre. Some interesting aspects and high quality gore and torture prevent this from being a wash-out, but the script is too lacking in sense and overburdened with bad dialogue to be entirely enjoyable.
4/10

Nice to see you enjoyed 'The Night Stalker', OldAle. I watched 'The Night Strangler' a couple of mornings ago and found lots of points of interest in this sequel (I haven't seen 'The Night Stalker'). Nice locations and an intriguing cast once again (Margaret Hamilton, John Carradine). The ending in the underground lair was a bit tame (and a montage of highlights with the end credits made it feel much more television-like). McGavin made for a pleasant and somewhat irascible and irrepressible lead in his blue suit and straw hat. I liked it enough to watch any other Kolchak entries that come my way.

Amazing to think nowadays how many people tuned in across America for the 'Film of the Week'! ABC certainly scored winners with this pair.

Wonderful viewings!
The TV series continued to impress too, Roger. Although it became a bit formulaic, there were always plenty of character bits on hand fleshed out by a great cast of regular and supporting actors. This was just about my favorite TV series as a kid and it remains high on the list. For a series that ran only part of a single season it has quite a cult following - and for good reason.
Good to hear, 'beatnik. Honestly, I had never heard of intrepid Kolchak and his creepy escapades up until a few mornings ago. It wasn't on my horizon growing up (when such programmes might tend to make more of an impression). I loved series such as 'Scarecrow and Mrs. King' and 'The Rockford Files' but I don't remember this series getting an airing on Irish TV in the early 2000s when I was perhaps most receptive to such fare. I will though watch the series if I come upon it being shown in the future.
That's all, folks!

It's one of the few series that was actually syndicated in the US without lasting for three seasons - because of the rabid fan base. There have also been novels, collections of short stories and comic books continuing Kolchak's adventures. There was a reboot show called Night Stalker in 2005, but I never saw that. It's hard to picture anyone but Darren McGavin as Kolchak. It was also apparently a big inspiration for Chris Carter when he was creating The X-Files (both even feature creepy theme music that features whistling).

The TV series continued to impress too, Roger. Although it became a bit formulaic, there were always plenty of character bits on hand fleshed out by a great cast of regular and supporting actors. This was just about my favorite TV series as a kid and it remains high on the list. For a series that ran only part of a single season it has quite a cult following - and for good reason.
Good to hear, 'beatnik. Honestly, I had never heard of intrepid Kolchak and his creepy escapades up until a few mornings ago. It wasn't on my horizon growing up (when such programmes might tend to make more of an impression). I loved series such as 'Scarecrow and Mrs. King' and 'The Rockford Files' but I don't remember this series getting an airing on Irish TV in the early 2000s when I was perhaps most receptive to such fare. I will though watch the series if I come upon it being shown in the future.
It's one of the few series that was actually syndicated in the US without lasting for three seasons - because of the rabid fan base. There have also been novels, collections of short stories and comic books continuing Kolchak's adventures. There was a reboot show called Night Stalker in 2005, but I never saw that. It's hard to picture anyone but Darren McGavin as Kolchak. It was also apparently a big inspiration for Chris Carter when he was creating The X-Files (both even feature creepy theme music that features whistling).
Darren McGavin really is what makes Kolchak, both movies and TV series. He has the right amount of snark and incredulity for the role. I haven't bothered with that newer version. I did not hear great things about it.

Good to hear, 'beatnik. Honestly, I had never heard of intrepid Kolchak and his creepy escapades up until a few mornings ago. It wasn't on my horizon growing up (when such programmes might tend to make more of an impression). I loved series such as 'Scarecrow and Mrs. King' and 'The Rockford Files' but I don't remember this series getting an airing on Irish TV in the early 2000s when I was perhaps most receptive to such fare. I will though watch the series if I come upon it being shown in the future.
It's one of the few series that was actually syndicated in the US without lasting for three seasons - because of the rabid fan base. There have also been novels, collections of short stories and comic books continuing Kolchak's adventures. There was a reboot show called Night Stalker in 2005, but I never saw that. It's hard to picture anyone but Darren McGavin as Kolchak. It was also apparently a big inspiration for Chris Carter when he was creating The X-Files (both even feature creepy theme music that features whistling).
Darren McGavin really is what makes Kolchak, both movies and TV series. He has the right amount of snark and incredulity for the role. I haven't bothered with that newer version. I did not hear great things about it.
We're on the same wavelength regarding both McGavin and the newer Kolchak. :cheers:
