ditto, but in reverse order.

I had The Nightmare Before Christmas playing while the kids were out with their mom Trick-or-Treating, and I was scaring kids at the door, then after the kids were in bed I watched Trick 'r Treat.

Sometimes irritating, but usually a good payoff in story and presentation. Many of the vignettes had ginormous holes in their story logic, but it was still fun.

Screenshot is a cheat, because Batman isn't in most of it, but Adam West and a monkey is something we should all have more of in our lives.

-Ouija (2014): :hole1: :hole1: :nohole: :nohole: :nohole:

Image

Morbid curiosity (and the unexpected excellence of the prequel, Origin Of Evil) got me to finally check this one out, and good God, it's hard to think of a sequel/prequel that trounces the original film in quality to the degree that OOE does. This film, in comparison, is as generic a scare machine as any I've watched in recent memory, which doesn't mean it's the worst film of its type, just wildly forgettable and bland. Jam-packed with the usual photogenic teenage cipers (only lead Olivia Cooke, with her melancholy, baby Rose Byrne loveliness, leaves any impression) being picked off one by one, the usual portentious banging and rumbling on the soundtrack (what did hack horror filmmakers have to lean on before the invention of the subwoofer?), the usual cheap-assed "let's sneak up on someone for no reason" jump scares, it's all frightfully mundane, and the fact that the events of OOE have little connection to how they're vaguely described in this film only make this even more disposable. I'll be pretending that OOE is the only Ouija film in the future, and I'm sure I won't be the only one.

This is exactly why I asked for a list. I wanted one place where I could reference the movies I need to see from other people's lists. Haven't seen the 1978 version of Body Snatchers in ages and haven't seen Sssssss!! since I was probably 15 or 16. Also need to revisit Near Dark. I'm not a big vampire movie fan but that one was always a favorite. Haven't seen it in 3-4 years so it's time to revisit. All the rest above are completely new to me.

Good luck finding Near Dark. I have the old Anchor Bay DVD Special Edition but that and the Blu-ray are both out of print now and it can't be found digitally anywhere -- not even Amazon is streaming it.

As for my list. I use Google Docs and Calendar to compile and schedule my movies for that month. I'd be willing to share the lists and calendar with anyone who is interested.

I had no problem finding Near Dark online. Not on a streaming site, however.
