Here’s another little gem that came out of nowhere for me. As you’ve heard me say many times in the past, I have a soft spot for low budget films that find a clever way to tell a nice spooky story with those limited means. The Last Shift is a perfect example of this -- … Continue reading 10/4/16 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICK #4 – Last Shift.
DEATHGASM!!!! Holy lord Deathgasm. I don’t even know where to start. I think my friend Brendan said it best when he told me, “If you, Jeff Dixon, saw this movie when you were 12 years old, it would be your favorite movie ever.” And you know what? He’s right on point. This is 12 year … Continue reading 10/29/15 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #29 – Deathgasm.
Starry Eyes is one of those movies that goes down the Jeff Dixon checklist for movies I dig. A few years back there was a movie I looooved called The House of the Devil that was a true stylistic throwback to the movies of the late 70’s/early 80’s. While this movie doesn’t try to emulate … Continue reading 10/19/15 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #19 – Starry Eyes.
Sunday, on a Monday. Okay, so this one is another throwback, but holy hell is it required viewing for any true fan of horror. And trust me, for being released in 1960, and shot entirely in B&W, you’ll be surprised at how gruesome it is for that time period. Black Sunday, AKA Mask of Satan, … Continue reading 10/13/14 – 2014 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #13 – Black Sunday (1960).
When I do these lists each year, people inevitably ask me, “You’ve missed some obvious and amazing horror movies. Why haven’t you put (insert film here) in yet?” Well dear friends, as any good horror writer/filmmaker knows, it’s just as important how much you hold back as it is how much you deliver. And as … Continue reading 10/31/13 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #31 – Rosemary’s Baby
Growing up when I did, there are certain filmmakers that just simply walked on water for me. John Carpenter was one of those. In fact, to this day, if anyone asks me what my top five movies of all time are, TWO of them are John Carpenter flicks. So when it comes to a favorite … Continue reading 10/17/13 – 2013 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #17 – Prince of Darkness
It's finally here! Holy crap, I can hardly believe it. After the numerous years of torment, insanity, and flat out idiocy surrounding the numerous failed launches of this book, it's finally going to see the light of day... But ONLY with your help. Before you read on, you first need to go to the Kickstarter … Continue reading RUN LIKE HELL – The graphic novel they didn’t want you to see, is live on Kickstarter!
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.
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.
