To bring you up to speed

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!!
