I just finished Creepshow.

At first I thought this was a fantastic part of comedy horror...

...then the last segment came on.

I have a big BIG problem with cockroaches. Traumatized by one when I was a kid. When I realized what was about to happen to that guy's body right at the very end, I pretty much started crying. :shudder:

It's a weird quirky one, but I really like it.

Watched Misery, The Thing, and The Shining this weekend and I'm about to pop in the original House on Haunted Hill

I'm still mad the studio majorly fucked up and let it sit on the shelf for years only to dump it on DVD with no promotion. I love anthology movies, Halloween stories and atmosphere, this should have been an annual tradition. Much more worthy than crap like Saw.

So I went all out and went to Salem on Halloween weekend last year for the first time in my life despite being from Massachusetts. Other than that I did a movie marathon at my house with my best friends, with lots of Halloween themed junk food (including Spooky Crisp, Cookie Crisp + Count Chocula) and that's all I'll be doing this year, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Last year at various functions I went as Sam Merlott from True Blood, Scott Pilgrim, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Since I won't be going out on the weekend, and I have a graduate course Monday night, I think I'm going without a costume this year. Though I could pull out anything from my old school movie costume box, including a pretty awesome Bender from the Breakfast Club getup.

Oh, if you're tempted to see The Last Exorcism, pass. It had some good, scary moments, but the end? Total cop-out.

Contenders for this year's marathon:

Zombieland and Scream 4 are in for the modern/horror comedy quotient
Rope, for the requisite Hitchcock
Vincent (Tim Burton's stop motion tribute to Vincent Price)
The Most Dangerous Game

Others to choose from for the party, and watch the others during the week:
The Innocents
The Picnic at Hanging Rock
The Haunting (1963)
The Masque of the Red Death (w/ Vincent Price, attn DVRers it's on TCM early Tuesday morning)
The Woman in Black (the TV adaptation from the 80's, unfortunately I don't have a time machine to bring back the new one in)
In the Mouth of Madness
1408
The Changeling
The Black Cat
The Phantom of the Opera (Lon Chaney Sr.)


Favorites I'll have to try to watch on my own time:
Sleepy Hollow
28 Days Later...
The Orphanage
Psycho
The Halloween Tree
Clue
Dracula (Bela Lugosi)
Rebecca
Drag Me to Hell
The Lost Boys

Managed to find a torrent of this a couple months ago. I hadn't seen it since I was a kid. It wasn't quite as scary as I remembered, but still pretty damn creepy

1408 is awesome. Love that movie. And Zombieland is epic.

I'm going to countdown to Halloween with avatars from my favourite movie to watch on that night.

Oh man, I am going to have the most bitchin' Perry the Platypus costume - someone's sewn me a tail, got another friend who's loaned me their fedora, and just today I bought a teal hoodie & sweatpants (the pants were a bit hard to find, though... it was difficult to find a pair of plain teal ladies sweatpants w/o the word "juicy" spread across the bottom).

Carnival of Souls was on TCM tonight, because of work and class I couldn't watch, but thanks to the DVR I'm gonna have a 'pleasant' late night.

I watched The Devil's Tomb instead of Insidious for now. Wow, boring and bad. I was hoping it might be so bad it could be good given the cast (Cuba Gooding, jr., Ron Perlman, etc.).
It's a good premise, but what a total snore/bore fest.

I'll be getting The Omega Man sometime this week for Halloween viewing.

My brother and I carved our first pumpkin ever this weekend. I'm 26, he's 29. We had no childhood.
