Aug 27 - The Nesting (1981) - Suffering from agoraphobia, gothic mystery writer Lauren Cochran rents an isolated victorian house in the country to escape the city and concentrate on her writing.  Only after she moves in and begins to experience haunting dreams does she learn that the house was once a brothel and the site of several grisly murders decades before.  Nice atmospheric film with a great location.  It is slow at times and some of the scenes come across as campy, but still an entertaing watch.  3/5.  First Watch.


I bought the Nesting a while ago on dvd but just haven't got around to watching it yet.  I am glad to hear you liked it smile  Now, I have to find it!  haha

Dig it up DG, I think you will like it. smile

Aug 28 - Flashback (2000) - After witnessing the burtal murder of her parents as a young child, Jeanette spends the next several years recovering from the trauma in an asylum.  When she is released as a young woman, she seems to be granted an new lease on life as she is given the opportunity to tutor a trio of wealthy siblings in their remote moutain mansion.  But as bodies begin to pile up, Jeanette is left to wonder if her return also marks the return of the killer.  Technically it is well done with a nice location that reminded me of Phenomenon, but as far as slashers go, it is nothing special or particularly original.  The inclusion of Elke Sommer in the cast was nice, but with the other lovelies included, it would have been nice to see at least some nudity.  2.5/5.  First Watch.

2nd day: 1:54 a.m.

The New Daughter. Extremely disturbing and scary psychological horror/thriller with Kevin Costner. I loved it due to the fact it has a very The Sixth Sense-like mood. Mysterious and scary. Ending may made a sequel. Overal I rate this one 7.1/10

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

And remember that I re-booted my days.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Day 277-

Theatre of Blood- 8/10 Rewatch Dvd

Why, why, why does nobody talk about this one?  It was just as good as the Dr. Phibes movies.  Completely campy with gory and creative kills.  And Vincent Price is quoting Shakespeare throughout the whole movie!  Awesome!  smile

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Got 3 days in a row. Tonight is Snow White a Tale of Terror.

chopping mall 1986 3/10 since i had my VHS out i watched this. got this film for my 10th birthday THANKS MUM!

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

3rd day: 1:34 a.m. Videodrome (1983). Directed by David Cronenberg, master of body horror and sci-fi. The ultimate Canadian. The whole movie was just plain weird. Which make it ultimately good. Along with an amazing soundtrack by Howard Shore. This movie makes me go horny at some scenes. And the plain weirdness in this is just too scary for me. The mood and scenes perfectly matches with the music. An amazing film with James Woods. This movie is... conclusion: A mind **** (screw).
The make-up was amazingly scary too. Wonder why this was underrated by audience at that time.
This is one of Cronenberg's best film along with Scanners (1981), Dead Ringers (1987) and The Fly (1986). A great classic sci-fi horror mind **** that proves television is the retina of the mind's eye. Therefore, people don't need to care what Oblivion says but just sit back and relax while watching this total mind **** accompanied by Deborah Harry's awesome gasping.
Conclusion: this movie is one of my favorite sci-fi horror film so there is no whatsoever reason that I'm not giving it an 9.4/10

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Aug 29 - A Lizard in a Woman's Skin (1971) - After she has a bizarre dream where she kills her neighbor, the neighbor turns up dead, murdered exactly as Carol had dreamt it.  Is someone trying to set her up for the murder, or did she actually commit the crime.  Okay, but it really didn't do much for me.  2.5/5.  First Watch.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

hey mary! i'm working my way through my Hammer 21 dvd boxset. are you just a teensy bit jealous? wink XXX

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

^^ Oh, I am. I wish they made a region 1. I have to add, I wish it was more complete. It's a lot Hammer for one collection, but hardly the movies I'd have chosen for my version of the ultimate Hammer collection.

lol...Carpenter was amazing!  Very friendly but he didn't say very much.  I asked him to sign a poster of The Thing for me.  Surprisingly, his line wasn't that long.  I will post some pics soon smile

Man! Lucky!

I was suprised how few people where at Ruggero Deodato's table at BOTB back in April...so wish I could meet Carpenter!!!

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

John Carpenter was awesome.  I wish I had thought of something clever to say smile  Maybe next time.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

day 19 Army of Darkness 1992 (RW) 10/10 what can you say about a picture  this good, when i first saw this film i was 9 years old on family holiday in america we where in Las Vegas at the time and while my parents where gambling i stumbled across this playing and had to beg a plead so i could watch it (My sister hates horror) but by the end even she was enjoying it i think that says it all

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

^^
That's kind of similar to me- I talked my dad into going to see AoD (he also does not like horror), but it had enough humor that he also liked it.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

it brings family's closer!

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

The day I came home from the Army, my mom and sisters threw me a welcome home party complete with a horror movie marathon.  That was the first time I saw Army of Darkness.  So the flick actually holds a great deal of meaning for me, aside from being thoroughly entertaining. lol

The same way that a simple little movie made by two guys fresh out of film school became the Saw fanchise. wink

Aug 30 - The Lost Coast Tapes (2012) - When a Bigfoot hunter claims to possess the carcas of a dead Sasquatch, an investigative journalist grabs his crew and heads out to the hunter's remote mountain cabin determined to document the hoax.  But some things don't like being called a hoax.
Great premise for a found footage flick, and one that I was really looking forward to, unfortunately, it was pretty much a let down.  Your standard FF fare, an annoying film maker, whiney crew members, slow build up with with all of the action happening out of site of the cameras, and the line "No matter what happens, keep filming."  Without giving anything away, they do mix it up a bit in the end, but the ending was lame and the payoff just wasn't there as far as I was concerned.  Shame, it could have been a cool flick.  2.5/5.  First Watch.

Just to explore the point a bit further i believe a valid difference is that the original SAW is a darn good film that had for its time a very original concept which it executed very impressively. PA used the previous found footage gimmick and it appears, to me that a lot of horror fans didn't find it to be executed well. What made it a hot ticket was its ingenious viral campaign by Paramount and the apparent fact that Steven Spielberg was scared shitless by it (but he isn't a horror genre director so this may have been irrelevant to many genre fans). One of the reasons why both SAW and PA have had so many sequels aswell is also arguably their increasing appeal, especially their sequels, to a wider mainstream audience aswell as those in the horror genre (I suppose u could say that about a lot of Hollywood Horror nowadays though)
