Nosferatu (1922)

After my @bbcfleabag interlude last night, I did watch something for #monthofmadness: this silent classIc I have somehow missed all these years. Friends, there are genuinely creepy moments here…and I also nodded off. I’ve seen a lot of clips before – first there was @nightflightofficial on what I believe was Halloween night, 1987. After getting …

Fangs (1989)

A fun accidental screen pause from tonight’s feature, Fangs (2). This was fine. A fun hour of my evening. Nothing earth shattering here; no new info. Fangs is a very 1989 catalog of depictions of Count Dracula on film, hosted by a very charming and game Veronica Carlson(3) (yes, we saw her last night as …

Monster Madness (2008)

Don’t bother with this one. Okay, okay. It’s not all bad. It’s an examination and history of the rise of Hammer Studios and, as the subtitle says, the subsequent revival of gothic horror in the 60s and 70s. This is a pretty key time in horror cinema and my favorite era, hands down. So it …

The Horror of It All (1983)

And so it begins. After creating my own horror movie documentary (of sorts) last year, I thought why not explore all of the horror docs I can reasonably get my hands on for my marathon this year? As there is a metric ton of them readily available on Amazon, I’m good to go. So here …

The House That Dripped Blood (1970)

(1970) All Hallows’ Eve Eve featured this much better than I remembered horror anthology. Well, okay, the last segment, about a missing horror film star played by John Pertwee was borderline ridiculous, but he’s a delight and the Christopher Lee segment was pretty great. It featured the world’s most precious child and some very baffling …

Sleepaway Camp (1983)

I…don’t know what happened in this movie. It’s so weird. For a while, it’s basically Community Theater presents 80s Kids at Camp, which is enjoyable, and then CURLING IRONS OF DEATH. What?! The “twist” ending is just the icing on the cake.

My Bloody Valentine (1981)

So much Moosehead Beer. So much. This film is better than it has any right to be. Same Halloween ripoff formula, same coupling off and dispatching of young adults, it’s even set on a holiday. Yet it works, maybe because it’s Canadian and they seem to be quality craftsmen? Also OMG I’ve seen it before …

Countess Dracula (1971)

This movie isn’t good but it’s also sort of amazing? You heard me wax rhapsodic about this in week 3, and I stand by that although I forgot to mention the world’s biggest loofah and how much Ingrid Pitt seriously gnaws on the scenery. She’s almost ridiculous and I’m here for it. We also have …
