DOWNRIGHT DISTURBING

CHILLER SUSPENSE

OLD SCHOOL CLASSIC

now get those sickening sweets you collected from strangers and chow down and shiver with these chillers.

Probably the last place you want to vacation at, what with the constant fog and  murderous witches and all.

SCARY FUN

 

 

A tale of two sisters 2003

The tragic complexities between  sisters and present family gives full range to ghostly events.

CHILLER SUSPENSE

 

Prince of darkness  1987

Lovecraftian in tone as evil entities lay out the red carpet in the form of possessed human bodies, a demon -god never had it so good under John Carpenter’s directorial style.

SCARY FUN

 

Island of lost souls  1932

There’s been other updated remakes of HG Wells mad science gone wrong,  but this original got the frightening macabre tones just right. {see full review}

OLD SCHOOL CLASSIC

 

Horror of Dracula 1958

Who knew someone could make a lively version of Stoker’s novel, Christopher lee makes the count to cool for school while Peter Cushing is a kick ass Van Helsing.

OLD SCHOOL CLASSIC

 

Homicidal  1961

Image result for homicidal

Tarantino  said this was better than Pyscho, ( spoiler alert?) a matter of opinion of course,  still a fine William Castle romp in shlock horror.

OLD SCHOOL CLASSIC

 

Audition 1999

Dating is hard enough and made even more so when lying that your a casting agent. Results of mutilations have a way of  dampening a romantic evening.

DOWNRIGHT DISTURBING

 

The Wolfman 1941

The great grand daddy of them all, this is where all werewolf  tropes originated from, which half a century later  is still used by  movies and writers today, not bad for bullshit pulled out of the screenwriter’s ass . Make note that Lon Chaney jr’s performance as the doomed protagonist is very strong.

OLD SCHOOL CLASSIC

 

The Babadook 2014

Image result for babadook movie

A distressed  mother and her shrilly voiced young son is set upon by a frightful storyboard character come to life. Should have stuck with D.R. Suess. Possibly the most criminally underrated horror movie in recent memory.

SCARY FUN

 

Splinters 2011

Image result for splinter movie

I’ll admit the camera work could have done less with the earth quake jerk about, but for the moments when we do get a look at the titled monster, its worth it. This is The Blob’s visisting cousin, a parasitical lifeform reanimates in a splintery mass and goes on a mindless rampage . fun for the whole family.

SCARY FUN

 

The Midnight Meat Train 2008

Serial killer give new meaning to the words “dining car” . Probably the most unbelievable part is that the train runs on time.

SCARY FUN

Happy Halloween.
