Now that we are in October, I was wondering if anyone else tries to Marathon horror movies throughout the month. Here's my day one viewing...

Day 1:

Creepshow (1982)
Children of the Corn (1984)

This is a very exciting year for me for Halloween because my son, who just turned 12, I have deemed old enough now to enjoy some (not all) great horror movies with me! He really enjoyed both movies but the creature from "The Crate" in Creepshow REALLY freaked him out! LOL!

Wish I had time for 31 days of movies (sigh). Creepshow 2 is actually a shameful favorite of mine. I'm going to keep tabs on this thread as I want to see everything you watch this month!

Love Creepshow, even creepshow 2 isn’t horrible it’s cheesy but entertaining. Yes started my October month of Halloween and scary movies.

Day 2

The Shining (1980)

Classic Stanley Kubrick film making. Deliciously macabre, creepy, haunting, all the accolades I can throw at it! I absolutely love this movie!

Day 3

Night of the Living Dead (1968)

A George Romero classic that IMO still holds up to this day! There are moments in this film that are still truly creepy/terrifying.

Day 4

Horror of Dracula (1958)

Meh, not my favorite Dracula movie but there are some cool settings and I am a big Christopher Lee fan.

Day 7

Dr. Sleep

When this movie first came out, I had low expectations. However upon seeing it, I must say it surpassed my expectations. A very respectable sequel to an all time classic.

Excellent choices.

I always work in Evil Dead 1, 2, and Army of Darkness, Trick R Treat, and Sleepy Hollow.

WAY behind on this! Sorry!

Day 9

American Werewolf In London (1981)

Quite simply the greatest werewolf movie ever made! What more needs to be said? Also, some of THE greatest practical effects ever in a horror movie!

Day 10

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988)

Aside from the "on clearance" CVS Pharmacy mask, this is IMO a terrific Halloween sequel! The opening sequence is terrifying and I think Donald Pleasance is so good in this! I just ignore the last 5 minutes of the movie and pretend it never happened! "Cops Do It By The Book"!

Day 11

The Bay (2012)

Not a bad "found footage" kind of horror film. I'm not typically a fan of these but they did a very good job on this one I think. If you haven't seen this one it's worth a look.

I ran across The Bay several years back. They really (for the most part anyway) tried to be convincing in the "this could actually happen". Anyway hardly an instant classic but I remember coming away thinking it exceeded my expectations.

Day 1 Night of the living dead. Day 2, the classic The Haunting, day 4 the fly. I haven't watched one a day but I am trying to watch more classic horror movies. I'll be watching Hellraiser, Signs, something wicked this way comes

Day 12:

Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007)

Not as good as the original but I like it none the less. Especially the directors cut (minus the horrible rape scene).

Day 13:

The Ruins (2008)

I really like this movie a lot! This one is an overlooked, underrated "modern" horror movie!

Okay ... The results from Google searches haven't satisfied me. So, I've decided to finally ask about the weird a$$ scene below, which was probably explained in Stephen King's book ... but is left open to interpretation in the movie.





It has befuddled me long enough. From someone who has read the book ... What was the point of this scene? It's just plain weird.

I have not read the book, and this is just an interpretation.
