    Cool. I am a big fan of Italian horror movies. I really need to get a hold of this one.
    I have heard a lot of good things about it.

    Spider Labyrinth, 1988. Out of print I believe, but I have a nice boot.

  4. Got a box set of all those Basil Rathbone / Sherlock Holmes movies. They are all enjoyable and hold up well.

    Last night we watched Resolution, good enough to explore the rest of the Benson trilogy.

    The Wailing- Korean movie streaming on Amazon. The rural folks are becoming possessed and all blame the old Japanese man who recently came to town. It’s a bit long and there’s a whole lot of screaming but it is worth the watch.
  7. Horror of Dracula, Dracula Prince of Darkness, Brides of Dracula, Alien, Curse of Frankenstein, Revenge of Frankenstein, The Thing, The Changling

    I'm watching the Halloween movies I always skipped up to now, 4, 5 and 6.

    Always watch Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, and Young Frankenstein.

    One of my favorite Paul Naschy movies-

    Hunchback of the Morgue, 1973

    Catacombs! A deadly pit! Flaming rats! And a hunchback!

    I'm not sure if I will categorize this as spooky. Definitely the best horror/suspense thriller I've seen with a very good storyline and a sad twist in the end.
    Phantasm (1979)

    Haxan last weekend. I know it's a classic and has some amazing scenes, but mostly I found it depressing.

    Those Werewolf movies must be very creepy to watch in Michigan, with its rich history of 'Dogman' Lore & 'Bray Road Beast' sightings .. :yikes:

    I don't usually watch a lot of Halloween stuff because we're usually away on vacation at this time of year, but this year will be different. So far we've seen Lovecraft Country, which was a mixed bag, and Amazon's Nocturne, which passed the time but I couldn't recommend. Also Roger Corman's The Pit and The Pendulum, which I've just bought on Blu-Ray and seems more the sort of thing that this thread is looking for. I'm actually not sure that I had seen that one before.

    I'm a big Dario Argento fan so it's always tempting to reach for Suspiria or Profundo Rosso but I'll try to remember to check back here with my actual viewing.

    I normally go with horror-related films in October, but this year I've opted to revisit two of my old TV favorites from front to back:

    True Blood
    The Walking Dead

    Those are taking up most of my time, but I have managed to sneak in a few films too:

    The Lighthouse
    The Strangers

    Per tradition, I'll watch Halloween (1978) on the 31st!

    I've been immensely enjoying the new Friday The 13th deluxe box this past week.

    I was thrilled to finally see many of the "uncut scenes" for Part 2!

    I wasn't aware of the length when watching. I like how it starts out as one genre and morphs into another. I thought the actress playing the young daughter was pretty frightening.

    LOL. I like it too and started to watch it yesterday. After 5 minutes I decided I wasn't in the mood and watched a Lubitsch comedy instead.
