My original intent with this year's Octoberween was to review each movie and post daily.
Ah, well, had not done that. So, instead, I will list the ones viewed, so I can let my "burden" subside. Yeah, yeah, yeah, on to the list...
- The Last House on the Left - I had not ever seen this first film by Wes Craven, but it was recommended by someone I have (today) known for one year. Good choice Yv. I really liked it, and can't wait to see it again. 8/10.
- The Shining - I wrote seven pages of notes on this one, but maybe I will transcribe some/more at another time. If you haven't seen this, your loss. 10/10.
- The Nightmare on Elm Street - Another Craven gem. I loved this when I saw it the first time, and love it still. Freddy Kreuger is a classic villain. Duh. 8/10.
- Cujo - this is the scariest movie I have ever seen. I have this thing with big dogs, and no matter how many times I have seen this movie, I still cower behind something/someone, and jump when Cujo attacks. 10/10 (for scare-factor alone). I wrote this funny "ghetto" review on this one, and may post it later too.
- Texas Chainsaw Massacre - classic. Tobe Hooper's "documentary" taught me many a lesson, from not to pick up hitchhikers (creepy!!) and to stay off other's property. Why in the world would you go into that house? Baffling... 8/10.
- The Evil Dead - I love this movie because of Bruce Campbell, low sweeping camera angles, Bruce Campbell, screeching deadites, and Bruce Campbell. ::loves:: 9/10.
- Urban Legend - Tara Reid should have died more quickly. The movie would've gotten a higher score. 5/10.
- House on Haunted Hill - an oldie but a goodie. The blind woman was priceless. Funny what was scary back then. 6/10.
I am now current, except that we watched Suspiria, too... I just haven't gotten everything together on that... More later!!
