1. Onibaba-1964: 8/10 (#104 on They Shoot Zombies, Don't They)

Beautifully shot with some really wonderful little moments. The movie itself drags quite a bit but it gets going towards the end and those last 10 minutes or so are pretty damn good.

I'm in. this'll be good motivation. edit: and the random buttom on iCM tells me the first one up will be Island of Lost Souls!

poster questions, for those of you in the know:

bottom left, the tire? below Monster Squad. and the one to the tire's right. looks like a spider or something.

the house directly below The Stuff?

lady in a coffin(?) below The Thing? fangs right next to that? and the lady in a bowling alley(?) next to that?

The tire poster is for the movie Rubber, the spider is Forbidden World

Lady in the coffin is actually in a locker, it's Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night 2, fangs are The Funhouse and I'm guessing the bowling alley chick is Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-rama

My only guess for the house is The Amityville Horror but I don't know for sure, it looks kinda like the house.

thanks for the quick response! I thought that might be Rubber but it looked like an 70s/80s poster. so. well done, art design people.

and Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-rama is a wonderful title. so is Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night 2. great titles.

Sorority Babes and Hello Mary Lou are a lot of fun, cheesy as hell (especially Babes) but still a lot of fun.

I got the poster by Googling "horror collage". I've made it so now if you click on the poster, you can see the higher resolution, uncropped original.

1. The Loved Ones (2009) 6.5/10
Better than I expected as far as torture porn goes. Stylishly directed and I really enjoyed the soundtrack. I thought the subplot with his friend and the goth girl was a complete waste though. Didn't seem to serve the plot at all.

I might as well get in on this if it's going to be an ongoing thing.

Looked down through the list... Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead higher than Romero's Day of the Dead?! Wow. Who would of thought that would happen.


EDIT: I should mention that between now and the end of October my modest goal will be a bronze on this list. (447/1000)

It really is sad. I know quite a few co-workers that were much more interesting in the TSZDT 21st Century list than this one just because they don't watch "old movies". :(

1. Blood Creek / Town Creek (2009) #885 on TSZDT
I had no idea that Joel Schumacher had made a movie where Michael Fassbender is a Nazi vampire until I saw it on this list. It's far from Schumacher's worst but it's far less interesting and involving than a movie about a Nazi vampire should be, essentially boiling down to a siege movie with too much exposition. Still, it's well-paced and has a lot of action and gore that makes it OK for a one-off watch.

Guss I watched White Dog a little too early. (April 25) * * Even though this is little more than cheap exploitation and little about it feels real, it's tough to sit through a film that focuses on a dog trained to get into bloody fights. Maybe it's a good thing that this never strikes a realistic note. One of those films (much like Fuller's Shock Corridor) that's so thoroughly unrealistic but it sticks firm to its own unreality. Kind of like a safety film on the dangers of racism by Herschell Gordon Lewis.


335 films to go.

groovy. although the crop does look more appropriate with The Thing right in the middle. or almost right in the middle.





I don't like Day of the Dead.

I couldn't resist but start right away.

1. Magic (1978) 7/10

The whole ventriloquist and his weird dummy is a bit worn out as a theme, even for the 70's but Hopkins with his acting skills and Attenborough with his direction managed to save a film that I thought would bore me.

2. Taste the Blood of Dracula-1970: 7/10 (#709 on They Shoot Zombies, Don't They)

The typical beautiful Hammer atmosphere and some really great scenes help a movie that lacked a lot of Christopher Lee and long sections where I just could not give a shit about anything happening.

Missing Peter Cushing didn't help either.

Previously watched...Show
1. Blood Creek / Town Creek (2009) #885 on TSZDT 4/10
2. Dead Silence (2007) #417 on TSZDT
James Wan's second major work combines the split-in-half-heads that Saw only teased us with, with several ideas the evil old ladies and creepy dolls he'd reuse in the Insidious and Conjuring films. The film is intrinsically silly, Ryan Kwanten is bad and I realised what the final twist would be quite early on, but the grab-bag of horror tropes and the American Gothic mise en scène turned up to insane levels help make this a decent Halloween movie
5/10

Image

3. Critters (1986) #552 on TSZDT
Apparently written before Gremlins, but a comparison with that inventive spin on monster movies reveals the shortcomings of this one. It takes the Critters too long to arrive, and when they do the film is very limited in scope, with the Critters sticking to a single location and the chaos kept to a low level. It does have quite a few entertaining moments, there's a nice sense of small-town Americana and the Critters themselves are another brilliant creation of the Chiodo brothers, but overall it's a rather mediocre 80s monster movie.
4/10

Image

4. Snowtown / The Snowtown Murders (2011) #787 on TSZDT
A slow-paced and effective study of corruption and evil, with a great sense of realism. More of a bleak drama than a horror; there's only a couple of scenes which get really nasty, and mostly the film works at creating an atmosphere of brooding despair.
6/10

1. Excision (2012) 55/100
Loved the ending, but I wasn't impressed with the direction and the way whole story was told. I need to check original, because it looks like it might be the case of unnecessarily stretched short.
2. The Last House on Dead End Street (1977) 70/100
Technically not a good film, but it has this raw, sleazy energy that makes you feel like you're watching something you're not supposed to. This was an unenjoyable viewing in the best possible way.

4. Snowtown / The Snowtown Murders (2011) #787 on TSZDT 6/10
5. Los sin nombre / The Nameless (1999) #831 on TSZDT
Has some good concepts, though I've seen them done better in other movies. It's atmospheric but is let down by being very boring, with a succession of uninteresting characters talking with each other to explain the plot. The ending was weak as well.
3/10

Image

6. Below (2002) #986 on TSZDT
An interesting mix of war movie and horror. It does have a few decent chills and action, but it's leadenly paced and it never seems confident with the horror - we get a lot of creepy build-up, but when the horror actually arrives it's just a brief flash of a CGI ghost face.
4/10

Image

7. Popcorn (1991) #816 on TSZDT
Not a particularly well made slaher, but one that is often entertaining and fun, usually due to the excellent horror movie pastiches that form the backbone of the story.

This list is mostly amazing. If I was working on the highest ranked films I'd be giving out high rankings like candy, but working on the lower reaches of the list, there's a lot of divisive stuff and things I don't think deserve to be there. Some of this may just be because my rating scale is calibrated differently.

But am I really the person here who hates horror the most? I loaded our ratings into Excel to find out.

Average rating for all films on TSZDT
ChrisReynolds5.94
kingink6.97
mightysparks5.79


D: D: mighty, why do you hate horror so much? :P

We agree more than we disagree - there are literally hundreds of films on this list between each of us where our ratings differ by 1 or less.

If I was working on the highest ranked films I'd be giving out high rankings like candy, but working on the lower reaches of the list, there's a lot of divisive stuff and things I don't think deserve to be there. Some of this may just be because my rating scale is calibrated differently.

But am I really the person here who hates horror the most? I loaded our ratings into Excel to find out.

Average rating for all films on TSZDT
ChrisReynolds5.94
kingink6.97
mightysparks5.79


D: D: mighty, why do you hate horror so much? :P

We agree more than we disagree - there are literally hundreds of films on this list between each of us where our ratings differ by 1 or less.
:whistling: And yea I know, whenever I check your page on IMDb I see this:

Btw, do you have some spiffy way of showing our rating distributions through the top 1000? Eg, to see if we rate higher at the top of the list and lower at the bottom etc?

On a serious note... I really like some of the films you've seen. Popcorn is an example. I think it's a fine fine movie :)
This list is mostly amazing.

Haha! Well played Chris!

You know we were just kidding. We know you have a great taste. All horror fans have great taste. :P

6.97? I'm a frisky puppy!
