Last year I fought against choosing the ultimate “no shit Sherlock” choice for a Halloween movie recommendation, but I can’t do it again. It is Halloween, October 31st. And John Carpenter’s Halloween is one of the best horror flicks ever made, bar none. It all fits like a glove and it needs to be placed … Continue reading 10/31/11 – 2011 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #31 – Halloween (1978).
For my final horror pick of October, I had to pick something really special. Halloween deserves nothing short of pure and utter terror. Something that will keep you up at night. Something that makes you look at life and death a little bit differently. Something that literally alters you. Well, here it is, ladies and … Continue reading FLASHBACK 2010 PICK – 10/31/10 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #31 – Martyrs.
Another common theme day. Last year on this day I chose Aliens, so this year it’s kind of an “of course” moment to choose Alien.

I love … Continue reading 10/29/11 – 2011 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #29 – House of Wax (1953).
