Fall Horrorfest 2018

Movie list created by Mackenzi Avatar

My plans for watching as many horror movies as I can for the fall season, starting in the end of September and going until November 17th (my birthday, the day I shall open the gates of hell and take back my rightful throne- or, you know, switch to family mode for Thanksgiving, visiting relatives and all that).
(Movies I'm Planning on Watching Here)

Stylish as Argento's films always are, and a decent if not especially surprising or impressive plot. I get a big kick about that fire engine red blood that's used, it has a certain look that gives slashers of this time period and earlier a great sense of being beyond reality. But hell if I can't handle the dubbing. It's just so bad. I have heard the dubs could be considered their own character in this kind of film but it's a character that always takes me out of the moment. :P I just don't enjoy them.

Brought me to tears, which makes me realize I've had a real weakness to movies about parents & children. I really liked the general vibe of this film, even though one could say it still has a lot of general zombie film atmosphere, the setting was refreshing and it's gotta be one of the few zombie films I really cared about the main characters, thought the main plot was compelling and felt satisfied with the resolution. In other words, a good movie besides it being a good decent zombie horror flick. I'm glad I watched it.

I liked this one quite a lot better than I Am The Pretty Thing. Kiernan Shipka has this cute smile that is very eerie, watching her subtle expressions was unsettling. A very good choice for such a slow and quiet movie. I loved the weird Donnie Darko vibes and I thought the ending was ambiguous without being confusing. It was a neat film. I would say maybe not perfect because the first half could have been... eh, entertaining? But I can see how that might be reductive from a creative standpoint; if the movie is trying to tell a story over being a scarefest, maybe more eerie happenings might have been fun for the audience, but undermined how the narrative comes together by the end. Anyway, a good movie and one I'd watch again.

I read this interview with the director and while it didn't change much of how I saw The Blackcoat's Daughter, it does increase my appreciation of both I Am The Pretty Thing and Let The Right One In.

I started this as kind of a cool down lap and I'm only 4 episodes in so far, but I'll go ahead and list it now in case I end up taking a long time to finish. I also went and bought the book this and the other adaptations are based on, I am looking forward to reading it.

It is a bit interesting so far, I've got some good feelings and bad feelings about it. The family dynamic is working pretty well for me, the acting seems good so far, it all seems to be progressing at a good pace. We'll see how it goes from here.

Not really a horror film but I added Rope here so I might as well. Shadow of a Doubt is an easy flick to watch after going for something a little heavier and more graphic like The Wailing. Mild but entertaining, it doesn't hold any surprises, but the character interaction is pretty delightful through the whole thing. The cast was quirky and cute and it worked pretty well. I was worried they'd go with a damsel in distress ending, but they didn't disappoint me.

I wouldn't mind seeing a remake of this someday, it would be cool to see more tension and drama between the family members in a modern setting.

I didn't realize The Wailing was a horror film for a long time, even though I've seen it pop up on netflix for ages. I'm glad I finally saw someone mention it in relation to zombies, otherwise I might have skipped it over again.

What a good movie! I love how some east Asian films there is a sense of humor and fun through even their most dramatic or horrific movies and this one had a lot of the same. It took its time to build itself up in a way that was entertaining, endearing and at times quite funny, without any bad mood whiplash. The overall narrative is reminiscent of old myths and legends that tell tragic stories to warn people about danger, and it had an ethereal quality to et especially at the end when things really started to amp up. My girlfriend found it incredibly sad, though I think there are films that hit me a little harder, like The Host, which had me in tears a few times. But The Wailing is just gorgeous and I'm very glad I got to see it, and it was a perfect one to end with on Halloween night. :D

The listal and imdb ratings indicated a middling film at best, but I've heard praise from several people so I was really curious to try it. Disclaimer, I haven't seen the first Exorcist movie all the way through- I had a college class that had a film watch as an assignment and while my group picked a different flick (Donnie Darko) I saw numerous half-assed reports and clips from the first Exorcist and never felt the desire to revisit it afterwards. That might be changing my expectations quite a bit- but if so I can say I got a good experience out of it, because The Exorcist III is a good movie. I liked the characters, I liked this detective who I could honestly believe was a kind man, I liked the haunting scenes, the symbolic dreams, I liked the intense dialogue and I liked Brad Dourif being a weirdo. It was a good time! I am glad I watched this one on Halloween, it made it a really fun night.

Very cool, I liked this one a lot. It might have been a little long for me, but I can't pin down any scenes in particular that I felt like should have been cut. Visually interesting, very memorable bad guy, pretty good acting, attention to detail, some disturbing imagery without going overboard. It was quite the journey to watch. I really want to see more from this director.

A very beautiful film that reminds me a lot of A Tale of Two Sisters, for its ability to build up a beautiful and eerie atmosphere, but also left too much confusion by the end that it took me out of the experience a little. This movie also used a couple scenes that seemed like typical horror movie stuff but didn't fit with the story at all- like the hand under the bed- why? What was that even about?. Those things aside is was excellent, worth watching for the beautiful scenery of Iceland and the spooky and mysterious buildup of the first hour or so. It's also excellent queer representation, and there is so little of that in genre films. It was really nice to just see a gay couple as the main focus of a genre film, no big deal- loved that and I wanna see more.
Overall, a film I can recommend to any horror fan.

A kinda goofy little serial killer thriller. It follows a typical story with typical characters, trying to tap in to that mid-80's charm I suppose. I loved seeing a Polybius arcade machine at the beginning, that cracked me up. The rest of the film was just okay. So much of it was teen boy hijinks that I lost some interest in the middle, and never really found it again. But the movie treated everyone like actual people and not cartoon caricatures, which was endearing, and by the end I was definitely rooting for this ragtag team of misfits.

In the vast pool of media that uses mental illness as a trope in the horror genre, Take Shelter is probably one of the best quality and least offensive. It was somewhat anxiety-inducing to watch- it really just felt like a movie about a guy having a nervous, psychological breakdown for the vast majority of it. I liked that he was aware of his genetic predisposition for mental illness, his attempts to go get professional help, wrapped up in this narrative of nightmarish dreams and visions he keeps having. I was a little miffed by the end throwing that classic "But WAS he right all along?!", kind of undermines all of the work the movie did to show his struggle towards living a normal life (I really liked the way The Babadook's ending treated mental illness, for a comparison). But his dreams and hallucinations where top notch spooky, startled me several times and gave a much-needed jolt of adrenaline into what is otherwise a slow-burn film.

This is one of the only movies I've seen this season that has really scared me- not just jump scares but keeping a sense of fear and dread through the whole movie. A good haunting is so delicious, whether it's a book or movie or campfire story. I really like a good ghost. A Tale of Two Sisters delivers on a beautiful setting, an eerie atmosphere that is maintained through the whole film. The scary scenes are drawn out to a wonderful length, never rushing through a scary scene, taking its time. The only downside is the ending was a bit confusing, and possibly I just need to watch it again from the beginning already knowing what happens, but it left me just confused enough to be taken out of the experience a little bit.

I don't think it quite did it for me. It wasn't bad, maybe I've heard it hyped up too much, but I was expecting something a little scarier and more intense, instead of this relatively calm, slow-burn vampire drama. It had a few good scenes and definitely tried its best to make an emotional connection, but I never let myself get too immersed. Maybe I'm a little done with vamps after watching so many vamp movies this summer, I dunno. However it does seem like the kind of movie I might like more on a second viewing. I will try to remain openminded and maybe watch it with a friend next time.

Yoshimi Matsubara's whole world, from the custody battle, the haunting, the presumed-dead missing child from the neighborhood, even being late to pick up her daughter from kindergarten, it's all reflecting the incredible, terrifying pressure to be a good parent and protect her daughter no matter what. It's pretty great. Not especially scary, thanks to how many movies have come out since and done so much more intense, graphic scares. But heck if Dark Water didn't get me on an emotional level. I was skeptical of the main character's ability to hold it together at first, a little wary of the mentally shattered single mom trope, but by the end I felt sad for everyone. They made me feel attached to this little family and honestly her custody situation weighed more on me than the ghost for most of the film. I liked the flashbacks to the mom's past too- she's not just swinging blindly here, she remembers the mistakes her own parents made and is trying so hard not to be that person to her daughter. It got to me. This film is more about parental fears than ghosts and while a lot of what it does has been done since and none of it is surprising or new, it's a coherent and memorable little movie and it deserves definitely at least one viewing.

A kinda different take one several ideas and honestly it did a more than decent job, even if it felt like it kept me at arm's length the whole time. I never got really wrapped up in the story as much as I wanted to. It is smart enough to keep the audience in the dark about the main character's backstories, so we learn things about the two leads as they learn them about each other. This makes it teeter-totter between a fun, twisted guessing game and moments of confused headscratching as the trials they put themselves through get worse and worse. It's got a great setting, beautiful at times, and it drip feeds enough disturbing or scary imagery to keep your interest even though it is quite the slow burn. It is some of the least goofy, contrived, or ridiculous of any ritual horror I've seen in a movie, very grounded, so it's got that going for it.

In the end it never really grabbed me and made me think, hell yeah this is amazing... but I'd probably watch it again, which is a good sign- it was interesting, it gave me things to think about. I could watch it again and end up loving it or hating it, but it'd be worth watching again I think.

Well this was a fun surprise! I had a great time with this movie. For one thing I don't think it ever did the thing where it jump scares at you with an unnecessarily loud musical sting, which is something I just hate these days. It let me just sit there and be scared or not, it let the scary things happen and let me have my own reactions to things and I absolutely love that. It was almost shocking how pleasant it was to watch.
I really liked all the characters too. It was cool how different people in this one apartment complex ended up naturally interacting, coming together, living through these supernatural happenings and beings and it all meshed together super well.
Lastly, it was great to see some supernatural lore from cultures I'm not as familiar with. I gotta see more international horror this month.

This movie is at its most fun if you go in blind and let yourself enjoy the ride. I don't mention any major spoilers or anything, it's just one of those movies you don't wanna have too much of an opinion on beforehand.

Interesting the second time around, though I was a little bummed out my girlfriend could see so much of it coming before it even happened- am I the only one who loves to blank out and just letmyself be wowed by a time travel movie? xD At any rate, it still managed to surprise both of us quite a bit. This rewatch of Timecrimes gave me new angles from which to appreciate the film. On one hand I could see the more contrived moments more easily when you mostly remember what's going to happen- but this time around the winking humor of the movie stood out a little more. I also really loved this as a slasher flick, which I didn't pick up on as well the first time around. This is kind of two movies in one- to all the other characters not involved in the time travel (and even to Héctor early in the movie), Héctor is a Mike Myers or Jason level slasher who is multiple places at once, unpredictable, inescapable madman. It is very entertaining, and I'm so glad when they decided to weld together a time travel thriller and an 80's slasher the final result is such a good one.

Streamed this on Shudder as well. I'd recommend the free trial for anyone else doing a horror marathon this month, it's been nice.

Work has been taking it out of me and I didn't want to keep myself up late with anything too scary, so it was a classic horror night. I have heard so much about this one, I was expecting it to be pretty chill and maybe a little boring. But it had so many moments of surprising, perplexing pagan behavior and Edward Woodward being an upstanding morally offended Christian that I didn't get bored at all. I would describe it as a slow burn (lol), it takes its time and has fun reveling in the strange setting. Scary? Not by a long shot. But a memorable one. You'll laugh, at the very least.

This one wasn't on my list to revist, but I just got a free trial to the Shudder subscription service and when I went to take a look at their 24/7 horror stream it happened to be on.

A definite classic, that has been praised by many here on listal and throughout cinematic history. I still enjoy it, the casting was great: John Dall is what I'd describe today as a "face actor", watching his expressions as he delivers lines is a treat. Farley Granger is delightfully distressed and James Stewart is himself, always pleasant to watch. This may just be my favorite Hitchcock film.

2nd time watching all the way through, though I've seen bits and pieces several times over. Still so entertaining. Probably the only Clive Barker movie I really love- it's got so much character, theatricality, beautiful sets, interesting characters. Candyman is a bit goofy at times, but it does its best to take you on a journey, to tell you a story and do it with style. It doesn't feel disjointed the way some horror flicks do, jumping from scary scene to scary scene like the gore or jump scares are on a shopping list. It has intention, it's memorable. And it's a lot of fun at the same time.

Tony Todd as the Candyman is still one of the most attractive horror villains ever. A horror icon!

I rented this one last year and tried to watch it at the end of a long night of other movies, but I got too scared to finish (bahahaha). It's hilarious because I remember being extremely unimpressed with the trailer- nuns and creepy kids? Too much cliche for me, doesn't sound scary at all! So this year I'm determined to see where I land- is it actually scary as heck or is it too cliche? I'm starting it right now. :P

Well, it was alright! I continue to be charmed by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson's characters. They are just so pleasant and wholesome. Always rooting for them and their desire to help others.

The nun was indeed ridiculous, though I'll give the spooky kids a pass. It didn't terrify me the same way as the first did, I can only guess it's because the nun concept wore me down a bit. I liked Farmiga's comment that it took a blasphemous form to shake her faith, though.

Side note- my husband paints a terrifying nun we've both seen in our dreams? I am not hanging that on my damn wall, I'm burning it in the back yard ASAP- seriously, why would they do that?

Hilariously, I tried to watch this movie over lunch, as if it where not clearly stated right there in the title that it is a movie about an autopsy.

It was a disgusting, challenging experience but I'm a stubborn fool so I didn't even just pause the movie for 10 minutes to finish. I finished right before he said the part about gastrointestinal examination, perfect timing.

What a cool idea for a film- a truly scary concept, something that is so easy to imagine- the mind would of course play tricks in a morgue, surrounded by silence and bodies, and this movie gives us the opportunity to see it happen up close. The drama aspect isn't terrible, maybe a little too much talking, maybe the father and son aspect was a little too good ol' boy to be really interesting, but nothing especially egregious. Maybe the story felt a little too vague- it at first portrays Jane Doe as a sympathetic victim of cruelty, and in the end she kind of is that still? But I don't feel like she obtained true force-of-evil status by the end, and if she was a force of vengeance instead of evil, the random picking of her targets seemed a little emotionally lacking. The Dad & Son didn't seem like they deserved it, so it was a bit confusing. However I do like that she never talked or moved for the entire film- a literal corpse. Brilliant. How long has she been doing this? How long will she continue? The small, creepy details of the movie where pretty fun to watch unfold, and it was the perfect amount of uncomfortable to sit and watch them cut open her body and thumb through her innards. I squirmed in my seat! This would have been a good one to save for Halloween, and I might try to watch it again. At the very least, next year if I want to put together a few films for a Halloween Movie Marathon this one will be on it.

It made me think about the actress playing Jane Doe. What a strange job to spend so much of a movie absolutely still and naked with the other actors examining your body- a bizarre role! I hope Olwen Catherine Kelly had fun doing it.

I was close to watching a more classic horror today, something from the 70's maybe, but I saw the trailer for Apostle and it wooed me, it looked fun, so I gave it a shot. I feel like I'm probably being a little harsh on what seems like a perfectly good movie that's definitely putting some effort in, but it simply wasn't my cup of tea. The buildup was strong and intense, beautiful strange imagery, a movie that wasn't afraid to have some color or have scenes set in the daytime- honestly the whole island village felt alive and real, isolated and quite hostile. But I was not into the graphic torture scenes. In fact, that one with the chains pulling the person into what I guess is a... grinder? Absolutely would not work, completely broke my suspension of disbelief and I just had to laugh at it. I know it's my own personal interests that put me off to that second half of graphic torture, I can see this movie being appreciated by a lot of people and I would still recommend it, it was worth watching at least once.

It had a couple details that reminded me of video game horror- nothing major, maybe I just play too many, but I could see the whole story play out in the style of The Evil Within or Resident Evil 7. The movie Crimson Peak also reminded me of a game, though that made more sense in context because Guillermo del Toro was going to work on Silent Hills (RIP) and is now involved in Death Stranding.

I don't know if this is necessarily a good movie overall, as one cohesive film. I felt like it was just a little too cheesy and there where some parts that seemed like good, complex worldbuilding, but diverted the story in too many directions without enough subtlety or grace. The ending was a lot of fun though, I enjoyed it quite a bit. And I had a nice time joking with my girlfriend through the whole thing about how we imagined the actual story of the world, being the vampires are too dumb and beautiful to think ahead to the total extinction of their one food source, and still struggle with concepts of science and agriculture and anything that isn't hanging out in a painfully modern cement office.

One major plus is that Sam Neil looks amazing as a colorless vampire CEO, excellent casting there.

I don't think I could give this a good rating simply for the very 80's point of view of transgender people and the unfortunate "man in a dress" villain concept. Even putting that aside, though, it was not especially gripping. The homage to Psycho was well and good, but the movie seemed to slump more and more as it went on. Angie Dickinson's character was the most interesting of the lot, several of the rest felt like spoof characters- maybe it simply doesn't age well and I'm not fond of this look into what served as top tier erotic thriller in the 80's. Who knows! On to the next movie!

This movie gave me more stress being underground than The Decent. The found footage made it seem so much worse. There is no supernatural terror worse than crawling through tiny tiny underground caves and crevices, I promise you right now, I will never spelunk anywhere ever! Absolutely the worst!

Anyway, the rest of the film was a little mediocre in comparison, a little too contrived in some parts, and sometimes just boring. It didn't give us much reason to care about these random youths, nor did a secret, ancient alchemist treasure seem at all plausible. The last 30 minutes I was just waiting for it to be over. The end credits where pretty stylish though.

Ravenous / Les affamés is a thoughtful zombie movie, I kinda liked that atmosphere for a genre that can easily be so tired. It was mystifying and strange, if a little slow. The perplexing actions of the zombies where fascinating and the "rules" of the universe are not explicitly stated and seem to change often, which kept me "on my toes" mentally.
The cast was enjoyable and interesting too, I think they achieved something there that many ensemble films try to do but fall flat: the characters pasts and personalities are hinted at, and we see through their words and actions how they've changed through their hardships, without any of them feeling cliche.
In the end if it's lacking it's simply because zombies can be a little flat. This film did a good job with them, but we still have to listen to characters discuss possible safe bunkers and who did or didn't get bitten, stuff we have seen before, so your mileage may vary on the overall plot. But if anything this movie is about details and not the big picture plot, so I'd still recommend it!

So far one of my favorites that I've watched this year! I am craving more like it!

Cool cinematography, a handful of great eerie moments, morbid humor sprinkled throughout. It had that spunk, that tiny hint of knowing that it's a horror film and wanting to be laughed at as well as screamed at, wanting to be a fun experience and not just overwhelmingly tense or awful. The main character's fixation on the head in the bag concept is disturbing and surreal, but also quite funny.

I might be a little hard on the plot itself, it still felt like there was a moment I knew exactly what it would do from that point until the end, and I was exactly right. But part of that flaw is me and how many movies I watch and it can be hard to let go and not try to guess what is going to happen next. :P But the ride from beginning to end was so much fun, they did a great job of taking us on this demented journey with the main character, and I loved that. Bluebeard gave me a renewed energy for horror movies and I'm excited to watch more asap.

A pretty and somewhat quaint classic that still delivers on distressing, strange atmosphere. Your mileage may vary when it comes to creepy children, but this one is a bit more "down to earth" in that the children may(?) be possessed by the ghosts (spirits? demons?) of adults and are therefore not inherently evil. It is put together masterfully, and I can say I was uncomfortable and tense through most of it.

It was a little hard to stay immersed at times because I'm not especially used to that early 1960's Hollywood way of talking, since I haven't been watching many classic films lately. But in a way it added to the strange, otherworldly feeling of the estate.

I still need to read the source material- I've had the novella on my shelf for about two years and keep putting it off. I have seen many comments saying it is quite chilling, so it's definitely a priority to get through this October.

Kinda awkwardly paced, some jokes a little shoehorned in, and overall a tad incohesive... and yet, still funny, and even kinda memorable. Especially thanks to the Stepdad Therapy Group and Bridget Everett as Al, because the film would have been nothing without them. Evangeline Lilly was also very believable as the cute, determined, somewhat oblivious mother-of-the-antichrist.

I wasn't expecting some wholesome heartfelt moments but it did kinda pull at my heartstrings in a few places. I'm weak when it comes parents going out on a limb for their kiddos, even when their kiddos are the antichrist.

I may have enjoyed it more having watched Noroi and Hold the Dark previously the same day- it was a welcome change of pace after those two.

Ehhhhh... I don't hate the found footage concept, it can be a lot of fun, but I'm often left wishing there was more actually scary parts of the movie. If it doesn't have enough interesting, mysterious, or scary content it becomes easier to see how the "documentary" style feels fake. I've yet to see a found footage/documentary movie that completely avoids the feeling of actors awkwardly reading a script that is written to sound like real, normal people talking. Noroi left me feeling the same way- not the worst offender, but still not anything impressive. And I was really unimpressed with the fetus thing thrown in at the end.

An interesting, atmospheric, and somber film, though I am not sure I took a lot away from it in the end. It is hard to follow the motivations of the characters, and even after reading an article explaining the characters and why they did what they did, I'm still not sure a lot of it came through in the actual film. It was very bleak, and it can definitely be hard for me to get into bleak stories if there isn't something else to hold on to. I thought the characters where interesting and the acting a pretty good fit, but I didn't feel any strong connections to anyone.

Fine, I suppose. Another kinda average one. I'm not sure I care for the story very much, though I suppose it could have turned out worse. The end had a similar magical feel to the end of The Witch, and I like comparing them if only for the sake of The Lodgers being the trial by water to counter The Witch's trial by fire. In this one there are some beautiful scenes of gloomy nature, the wonderfully derelict house, and water falling upwards and otherwise defying the laws of gravity. Besides that though- not horrible, but not really special.

Decent. There where strange, tense scenes and few good scares, though you almost always knew they where coming. It did a few things to subvert expectations but overall the plot is predictable... but it's still a decent amount of fun to watch, and I didn't get bored. It doesn't rely too heavily on the mental illness tropes that get so overdone (and so poorly done these days, even after decades of material to learn from). No, while the story doesn't break any new ground, it is enough to hold up the film. It loses steam by the end, becoming a little more action focused than scary, but I imagine they did it on purpose after introducing certain characters who change the atmosphere from spooky-tense to violence-tense. In the end, still a fun spooky house flick to relax to at the end of the day.

Hm... not sure if this was me being a little uninterested, or if this movie hasn't aged especially well, or maybe my expectations where off again (I gotta stop watching trailers!) but overall I was not impressed.

Ravenous seemed somewhat goofy to me, it had some parts that seemed intentionally funny and others I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be comedic or tense. The characters where interesting in theory but I felt like I didn't get to know them very well, and I couldn't name a single one of them now. The idea was interesting, but for a movie based around cannibalism, maybe kind of tame. I wish it had been weirder, more dramatic, or funnier, but it didn't cross any of those lines.

My expectations entering this film definitely effected my experience with it- I thought, after watching the trailer, that it would be a lot more violent than it turned out to be. I was expecting more to happen, maybe, and it turned out to be a quiet kind of film- I was left feeling like it barely had a climax.

However, thinking back on it now, it's definitely one I would watch again. The characters weren't just puritanical charicatures, though that would have been an easy way to make the movie. They felt real, and their descent into a gray, barren hell felt real. The film was kind of hypnotizing in that reguard, at all times I was wondering "What is really happening here??" and it maintained that sense of dreadful, confusing mystery for almost the whole film. The actual climax of the film was decent, but the last scenes, so incredibly quiet, they where magical.
