Horror Movie Challenge Update!!

So last month I mentioned that I was going to watch as many horror movies as I could before October 31st, right?

Well, I'm doing.. pretty decently.

The true challenge is 100 movies by Halloween, but that's just not going to happen. I keep forgetting or I'm just not in the mood for a horror movie.

But here's the list so far, of the ones I've watched up until now, with little notes on each one:

1. Wake Wood (crazy creepy, like Pet Sematary)
2. Exorcismus (really better than I thought it would be)
3. Candyman (not as scary as I remember)
4. Final Destination (hadn't watched this in a while!)
5. Final Destination 2 (meh, it was okay)
6. Final Destination 3 (by this point I was just in it to see how people would die)
7. The Final Destination (Don't call it "the final destination" unless it actually is..)
8. Halloween (classic. I forgot how great this movie is)
9. Halloween H20 (It was a cute 90s slasher movie.)
10. Halloween: Resurrection (3 words: trick or treat, muthafucka)
11. Let Me In (creeeeepy)
12. Cabin Fever (still disturbing)
13. Insidious (holy crap this movie scared me)
14. I Know What You Did Last Summer (I love the 90s teen horror movies)
15. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (not as good as the original, but still watchable)
16. Friday the 13th [remake] (Call it blasphemy, but I liked this one better than the original)
17. Halloween [remake] (Everyone hates on this one, but hey, John Carpenter told Rob Zombie to make it his own..)
18. Halloween 2 [remake] (about 1/4 as good as the one before it)
19. Urban Legend (right up there with Scream as an awesome horror)
20. Urban Legends: Final Cut (meh)
21. Urban Legends: Bloody Mary (bloody stupid is more like)
22. Stay Alive (actually kind of creepy!)
23. Valentine (kind of silly, but still fun)
24. The Craft (I loved this movie when I was 15.. I still do)
25. The Covenant (the male Craft. It was alright)
26. Disturbing Behavior (meet the musical little creatures that hide among the flowers? a crazy take on mind control)
27. Scream (one of the best teen slashers out there)
28. Scream 2 (just as good as the original)
29. Scream 3 (not as good as the other two, but hey, we love it anyway)
30. Scream 4
31. Sorority Row (mentioned in my earlier post)
32. Return of the Living Dead 3 (I wanted a stupid zombie movie, I came out of it totally sad and kind of loving this movie)
33. Jeepers Creepers (left me with too many questions)
34. Jeepers Creepers 2 (made me fall asleep)
35. Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (felt like a good movie for Buffy lovers)
36. The Faculty (It didn't suck.. but I don't know..)
37. Dracula 2000 (liked it better now than originally)
38. Gremlins (realized I hadn't quite seen this the whole way through. Not bad!)
39. Gremlins 2 (just silly)
40. Trick R Treat (amazing movie. Everyone should see it)
41. Ginger Snaps (ditto)
42. Ginger Snaps 2 (decent sequel but I'm not a fan of the ending)
43. 30 Days of Night: Dark Days (Snooooze)
44. Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (cartoonish version of Freddy Krueger with bad makeup and a director that thinks she saved the movie..)
45. Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (it's an okay sequel, but sucks in comparison to the first, third and New Nightmare).

So that's all of it so far! Let me know if you like the ones I hate, or hate the ones I like! I'd love a good discussion.

  1. Hey! I know this is an old post, but just wanted to let you know I checked in.

    I haven't seen too many of these movies, but I do think the original Halloween is pretty good. I started to watch the remake but...I don't know. I wasn't feeling it.

    Have you seen John Carpenter's The Thing? Gah. I cannot watch that movie. It's one of the only movies to ever scare the hell out of me.
