    Anyone besides me get in the season by going in a month-long horror binge? A bit late, but I started mine today.
    The Crazies 1973. :star::star:
    Directed by George Romero

    WHY ARE THE GOOD PEOPLE DYING?
    Citizens of a small town are infected by a biological weapon that causes its victims to become violently insane. As uninfected citizens struggle to survive, the military readies its own response.

    I realize that The Terminator is a sci fi, but the The Terminator is a great monster movie. Frankenstein will be next on my list, followed by The Wolfman.

    Watched Amityville Horror (original one). Not as scary as I remembered it. A couple others that are pretty good I watched with my son are the Conjuring movies and Sinister.

    I have Sinister in the queue. Right now, The Criterion Channel is running classic '70s horror movies all month. So between those and Asian horror (my personal favorite of the genre), it may have to wait.

    Thirst :star::star::star::star:
    2009
    Directed by Park Chan-wook (Parasite, Snowpiercer)
    Sang-hyun, a respected priest, volunteers for an experimental procedure that may lead to a cure for a deadly virus. He gets infected and dies, but a blood transfusion of unknown origin brings him back to life as a vampire. Now, Sang-hyun is torn between faith and bloodlust, and has a newfound desire for Tae-ju, the wife of his childhood friend.
    Every performance brilliant, especially Kim Ok-bin.

    Candy Man :star::star::star:1/2
    1992 - Directed by Bernard Rose

    The Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster’s myth.
    A rewatch after probably 15 years. Really looking forward to Jordan Peele's reboot.

    The Descent is a good unpopular horror movie.
    Insidious is really good and creepy.
    Exorcist 3 is OK but it has a scene that might be the biggest jump scare ever.

    We saw that in the theatre in Gainesville in 1990. . . September. . . The movie was creepy, but that scene has us all twitchy and like checking behind us. On the way home from the theatre, there were at least 50 highway patrol cars lining both sides of SW 20th Ave. I'm fairly certain they had just found Rollings's camp.

    Haven't seen The Descent. I'll put it on the watchlist. Hopefully, I already own it.

    The Descent 2005 Directed by Neil Marshall
    :star::star:
    After a tragic accident, six friends reunite for a caving expedition. Their adventure soon goes horribly wrong when a collapse traps them deep underground, and they find themselves pursued by bloodthirsty creatures. As their friendships deteriorate, they find themselves in a desperate struggle to survive the creatures and each other.
    This was like watching two movies. The scenes pre-monsters with the good use of claustrophobia, fear, and hopelessness was way scarier to me than the horror/gore portion post-monsters. I literally had to avert my eyes when they were crawling through that small passageways. The ending kinda lost me. If they would've stuck with the enclosed real fear aspects it would have been a lot scarier. I do appreciate the recommendation though.

    There is a Swedish film called "Let the Right One In" that you'd probably enjoy. I dig vampire movies myself, the less traditional, the better.

    I did see that one, where the little girl is the vampire set in Germany or something? It was really good.

    Started watching that one but will wait until my kids can watch it with me. Looked pretty funny, the Ben Stiller character from Happy Gilmore is in the first few minutes, pretty funny.

    Yes, they also did an American version, but it's not nearly as good.

    I never saw the American version. When did it come out? The original one is probably 20 years old or so.
