I’d consider myself a complete a-hole if I didn’t include The Exorcist on this list. I think it’s actually in the “scary movie list” bylaws. But for damn good reason. There isn’t a soul that watched this movie and wasn’t messed up by it in some way. It’s just scary as all hell (literally.) There … Continue reading FLASHBACK 2010 PICK – 10/28/10 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #28 – The Exorcist.
Jaws is like a horror movie gateway drug. It’s got that warm and fuzzy Spielberg tag so people feel safe with it. In addition it was released with that family friendly PG rating. Aww, this must be a sweet movie about a lovable shark named Jaws that a local aquarium adopts and a family grows … Continue reading 10/27/11 – 2011 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #27 – Jaws.
Here is another of those pivotal 80’s classics that helped model my youth. I loved everything about this movie when I was a kid, right down to being fascinated by the poster (to this day I have it hanging up in my office.) Tom Holland’s fun flick is another in my personal favorite style of … Continue reading FLASHBACK 2010 PICK – 10/27/10 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #27 – Fright Night (1985).
Yep, another no brainer, but a necessary one. Think back to 1991 if you can. Just when it seemed like it would never happen, here was the movie that finally combined the worlds of the serial killer horror film and the mainstream Academy Award winning darling. You thought the two worlds blended together like oil … Continue reading 10/26/11 – 2011 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #26 – The Silence of the Lambs.
Frailty deserves the award for the single most underappreciated movie of the last decade. This is one of my all time favorite films, directed by one of my all time favorite actors, Bill Paxton (Game over, man! Game over!) When anyone asks me for a scary movie recommendation, most of the time I tell them … Continue reading FLASHBACK 2010 PICK – 10/26/10 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #26 – Frailty.
Another double feature day today, but this one’s a little different. From Dusk Till Dawn is the film. And Full Tilt Boogie is the documentary about the making of it. Trust me, you’ll appreciate both of these equally. First, let’s tackle From Dusk Till Dawn. This flick is in a category of its own … Continue reading 10/25/11 – 2011 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION(S) #25 – From Dusk Till Dawn / Full Tilt Boogie. **Double Feature Day**
If you’re a classic horror fan, the name Hammer Films puts an immediate smile to your face. If there’s one thing I love, it’s horror movies from the 70’s (and late 60’s.) If there’s something I love even more, it’s the weird satanic movies of that same time period. Man, people were obsessed with the … Continue reading FLASHBACK 2010 PICK – 10/25/10 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #25 – The Devil Rides Out.
