    American Horror Story S1E1 - Yeah, I've never seen the show, despite people telling my how cool it was. There's a lot going on here, and I don't know if everything ties together/gets resolved. But I liked it enough to keep going.

    The Iron Rose - This was my first Jean Rollin movie, and still my favorite. Yes, it's self-consciously arty to the point of pretention. But it's atmospheric, beautifully shot, creepy and effective. The ending is powerful, and Francoise Pascal is wonderful.

    That's 6.

    Day 9: Inferno (1980)



    Inferno is the sequel to Dario Argento's Suspiria, and is about a poet named Rose who finds an evil book called The Three Mothers and suspects she is living in one of the dwellings depicted within. She sends a letter to her brother Mark to get him to come visit her, and soon after that all hell breaks loose as Mark tries to figure out what is going on.

    I know the plot setup I just gave sounded pretty stupid but I can't really go into detail without spoiling anything, as it's a pretty complex story. I enjoyed this one. It had some classic scares, and while some of the effects were horrible (rubber dead people!), others such as the set pieces and giant flames were decent. The soundtrack is excellent and the ending is damn near epic, with a speech that rivals the "His name is Jason" speech from Friday the 13th. Not bad.

    Quite funny, as a group of college kids mistakenly thing a couple of hillbillies they encounter in the woods are psycho killers. Grisly death and hilarity ensue.




    Suspenseful, dramatic, and breath-takingly gorgeous. Guaranteed a bunch of Oscar nods. The 3D is superb. If you're wondering if ti fits the season, let me say that this movie will do for space what Jaws did for the ocean. :)

    (Though I will quibble that with all that detail and incredible FX, couldn't they have figured a way to make Bullock's hair float?)

    Season 2 Asylum is pretty good but as a warning it does not continue the story from season 1. Instead each season is their own unique narrative where some of the actors are used as different characters. Season 3 Coven just premiered and it was pretty good.

    Danayel thought he was was just another cynical God-hating street preacher with a hot girlfriend, until he gets shot by a zealot and discovers he's a nephilim. Actually, I'm not sure when he quite discovers that, the way the movie is written/edited, several characters who do know or have been told what's going on never seem to quite get around to explaining it to him. Regardless, he's driven by visions of Pyriel, the Angel of Genocide, and hunted by a rebel angel. Walken has fun with Gabriel's diminished capacity in this one. And there are some cool ties back to the first movie, though they're not explored as fully as they could be, especially the return of the (now not so) little Indian girl who was possessed in part 1. Sadly, Danayel himself comes across as more confused dbag than a savior to root for. There is more Highlander-esque action in this one than the previous entries.

    I've never seen any of the Amityville movies, so watched a few this weekend.

    Day 10: The Amityville Horror (1979)



    This is a decent haunted house movie but it hasn't aged well. I was forbidden to watch this as a kid, so it's kind of funny to catch what the parents considered "scary". Watch out for the chocolate syrup dripping down the walls!

    Day 11: Amityville II: The Possession (1982)



    This is actually the prequel to The Amityville Horror, but only a small percentage of it is based on the true story. I enjoyed this one a bit more than the first, only because it's hilarious when someone fails at trying to act possessed. Also, there is an exorcism in the movie that tries sooo hard to one up The Exorcist.

    I haven't hit one a day, but this October I've watched:

    Halloween - Fantastic as ever.
    Halloween II - I'd actually never seen this. Would be pretty great if it was about an hour shorter; Laurie just doesn't have enough to do. It'd be interesting to see these first 2 films edited together as one with an intermission in the middle.
    Scream - An all-time favorite.
    Scream 2 - Almost as good as the original.
    Jeepers Creepers - Loved it. Very scary. First time watching it.
    The Lost Boys - Incredible cinematography. It wanders a bit, but I still really like this one. Feldman is so ridiculous; I love it.
    Fright Night (Remake) - I'm a big fan of this one. Farrell and Tennant are clearly having a blast. I love the ever-ramping tension/action of the screenplay; it's just really well structured. A ton of fun.

    This is the story of a girl forced to live with her aunt, and the horrible torture that she is put through by her aunt and cousins. Its is brutally disturbing and horrifying, yet told very well and kept you watching.


    It is the real life story of Sylvia Likens.
    If you haven't seen it, there's another Jack Ketchum movie along the same lines as that movie called The Woman.

    Black Sunday and Zombie Lake brings me to 8.

    Mario Bava, Barbara Steele, and some beautiful visuals transcend the, let's face it, familiar plot.

    Jean Rollin brought in at the last minute to finish a movie over the weekend. Something about Nazi zombies, including one who wasn't all that bad a Nazi trying to reconnect with his daughter. And a van full of girls goes skinny-dipping. Sadly, that's the most memorable scene in the movie.
