As promised, here’s a quick round up of this year’s Horrorfest.
Out of 39 movies watched in October, 18 were horrors. That’s 46% of what I watched, which is something of a fail on my part. I apologise.
On a more positive note, I completed both the Nightmare On Elm Street and the Friday the 13th boxsets which now leaves me free to watch the Freddy vs Jason series.
I also made progress on my John Carpenter season which I should complete by the end of the year.
It’s time for another October Horrorfest, ladies and gents!
Same rules apply: watch as many horror movies as possible during October and I’ll report back in November.
I’d been wanting to see Night Of The Living Dead for some time now; it’s part of the 1001 Movies list I’m working my way through. As I got my hands on this box set I decided to watch them all.
Night Of The Living Dead was somewhat of a disappointment. I understand its importance in cinematic history but throughout I felt like I was watching a student movie.
Dawn Of The Dead was the only movie here I’d seen before. It’s my favourite of the lot and the only one I have any real time for.
Day Of The Dead is a bad movie, in my opinion. I didn’t like it at all and was bored for most of it.
And this is what doesn’t make sense to me. I love horror and quite enjoy zombie movies but not from the guy who pioneered them.
I love a good horror movie. I particularly love a good vampire movie.
And let’s get this out there right now: real vampires don’t sparkle. There.
I’ve loved all things vampire ever since I read Dracula at the tender age of 12-13.
So without further ado, here are a few of my favourite vampire movies in alphabetical order:
Bram Stoker’s Dracula
The Lost Boys
Only Lovers Left Alive
Shadow of the Vampire
Which ones do you think I’ve left out? Let me know.
Spoiler alert! Every October ends with Halloween so of course this month is dedicated to Horror movies.
I think towards the end of the month, I’ll list all the horrors I’ve seen. I may even rate them, watch this space.
For now, I’ll leave you with one of my favourite horrors, which also happens to be the first one I ever saw: Alien.
