Halloween Horrorfest 2015

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.



Box Set Completed: Trilogy Of The Dead

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.


Vampire Movies

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


Dracula 2000

The Hunger

The Lost Boys


Only Lovers Left Alive

Shadow of the Vampire



Which ones do you think I’ve left out? Let me know.
