    Over the last two nights I've watched George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead. Tonight I'll be watching Halloween and the Masters of Horror episode Deer Woman.

    What are some of your favorites for the Halloween season?

    My son was just telling me about that. Definitely going to be checking that out, probably on Peacock and I hope it will be available on blu-ray soon after. Looks like there's a sequel planned for next year, Halloween Ends.

    I've only seen the first three Halloween movies. Need to get up to speed. I see that Scream Factory is reissuing the first 5 on blu-ray. Decisions, decisions...

    "Deer Woman?"

    What does she do? Look sad at her victims?

    That would be telling... worth checking out. It's sort of a horror/comedy.

    The girl is actually a deer, shape-shifted to look like a beautiful woman. She seduces and then attacks. And she is topless several times over the course of the hour...

    I watch Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein at home every year.

    Last year I did a Halloween marathon and finally saw all the ones I skipped. Looking forward to the new one.

    The choices vary each year, but I do my yearly "Halloween Horrorthon" roughly from 10/1-10/31 yearly, with a different horror film every night. As I'm adding several more newly reissued Hammer Horrors to my collection, this year Hammer may be the main theme for the month.

    I already have all five on blu ray, with II and III in steel book editions with gorgeous new scans. But I decided to splurge on SF’s new 4K disc of the original because, well, it is Halloween.

    Regarding Deer Woman, that was part of a series of movies, made for cable, titled Masters of Horror, with major horror directors contributing two films each (mostly).

    The films are a mixed bag, overall, but Joe Dante’s two contributions, Homecoming and The Screwfly Solution, are terrific.

    It’s worth noting that the Deer Woman is a figure from Native American mythology and, yes, a shapeshifter. John Landis didn’t make it up.

    I'd get out now, while the goin' is still good! ;)

    Honestly, whilst the 4th film is (underwhelmingly) serviceable, the rest of the sequels (and remakes) coalesce into one ridiculously imbecilic celluloid death spiral that is so breathtakingly terrible it makes the latter Friday the 13th sequels look like Chekhov.

    I like the 4th Halloween, as it’s well directed and r depicts the holiday from a child’s perspective, in a way that really hadn’t been done (at least, not well) since Carpenter’s film. You’d be surprised - or maybe not - at how little of Halloween figures into some of the later Halloween sequels, aside from perfunctory decorations and carved pumpkins.

    It should have ended there. The series really crashed with the fifth film, which was rushed into production too early when 4 made a great deal of money, and never really recovered. I know H2O has admirers, but I’m not one of them.
