Alien - I don't think I knew you were a hockey fan??!??!!?  Sweet dude!

Oh yeah, I love hockey, especially now that we are getting close to the playoffs.  Nothing quite as intense as Stanley Cup hockey!

DG, I would definitely avoid The Hunters.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Mar 19 - The Moth Diaries (2011) - Not at all what I was expecting.  The film itself was well made, but it was slow and uneventful for the most part, and really, it was more of a chick flick than it was a horror film.  It was kind of like they tried to combine the appeal of a Twilight film with a ghost story/vampire back story. On a side note, every time I looked at the antogonist Ernessa, I thought of Dren from Splice.  2/5.  First Watch.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Moth Diaries- no see

Alien, who's your hockey team?  Just wondering if you're an archrival of the Flyers or not.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

^I'm a fan of the Avs Az, so not an archrival.  However, if I had to pick a team in the East that I root for, it would be the Penguins who are an archrival. smile

Battle Royale- 9/10 First Watch Bluray


I picked up Battle Royale on Blu today.  I have had this movie on order at the used dvd store forever but it never came in.  I guess people like to keep this one...lol  So this is the first time I have seen it.  It was Awesome!  I highly recommend it.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

I've seen Burke & Hare, and really liked it. Thanks for the heads up on, Flesh & Friends

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Glad to see you liked BR! Man, I need to watch it again, haven't seen it in years!

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Flesh- no see
Battle- totally agree

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Mar 20 - Black Christmas (2006) -  A decent enough remake or update with some nice gory kills, but for me, it lacked the charm of the original.  3/5.  First Watch.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

^^
Agree with Alien on that one.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Haven't seen Black X-mas 2006 yet...

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

^   Never heard of, Intruder, or The Haunted Palace.  Both these sound good. Will have to hunt these down.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

^Intruder is a good one UD, definitely worth checking out.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Mar 21 - Abominable Dr Phibes (1971) - Funny that this showed up in the mail the day after the director, Robert Fuest, passed away.  It is pretty light on the horror, but I enjoyed the camp and the humor, plus it is always fun to see Vincent Price and Terry Thomas at work, even though the later's screen time is pretty short.  3/5.  First Watch.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

I love that one Alien.  Great movie!

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

^Next up is Phibes rises again DG.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Palace- agree
Intruder- I know I've watched it, but can't remember much about it.
Phibes- Awesome!
Phibes Rises- not so awesome, but still good.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Day 30-

The Tomb of Ligeia- 7/10 First Watch VHS

The last and one of the best Roger Corman and Vincent Price collaborations in the Poe series.  The dream sequences were beautiful and I think the movie must have been pretty scary for it's time.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Ligeia- agree, very good.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Mar 22 - Dr. Phibes rises again (1972) - More campy and comical than the original, but not quite as good.  It just seems to move too quickly, and it is just too easy for Dr. Phibes to off his victims.  Nice to see most of the cast from the original back for the sequel, though it is interesting that they recast Terry Thomas after he had been killed in the original.  And I was sad to see that Virgina North did not reprise her role as Vulnavia.  Still, it was an enjoyable watch.  3/5.  First watch.

Day 31-

Night Flier- 7/10 Rewatch Dvd

A very underrated Stephen King movie.  Love the final scenes in this movie.

http://i854.photobucket.com/albums/ab101/DirtyGirlMovies/Night_Flier.jpg


Near Dark- 7/10 Rewatch Dvd

http://i854.photobucket.com/albums/ab101/DirtyGirlMovies/near-dark.jpg

My only problem with Near Dark is the whole Blood Transfusion bit...I'm just not buying it. Great Actors make the whole movie. 

"Howdy! I'm gonna separate your head from your shoulders...Hope you don't mind none."

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

"Havin' trouble with your hog leg, Mr. Pig Knuckle?" -- love that line lol

Big fan of Near Dark.  Bill Paxton's the highlight but the whole film is great, IMO.  Did you notice how the word "vampire" is never once spoken in the entire movie?  I've always dug that for some reason...

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Night Flyer- strong 8/10 for me.  The whole movie is just creepy.
Near Dark- good film, 7 works for me.

Re: DirtyGirl's Horror Movie A Day Challenge

Near Dark was near perfect to me. Bill Paxton in one of my favorite roles for him. The blood transfusion thing kinda irked me a little at first also but let's face it, its a vampire flick and I like how it don't force itself to follow the same rules as every other vampire movie before it. 9/10
