10. Hobo With A Shotgun

The exploration film genre at it's very best. Over the top violent and WAY over the top acting make a pretty fun way to spend an hour and a half.

9. Maggie

I really really really liked this one. Abigail Breslin has been in a ton of things that I liked and two that I LOVE (Zombieland and Scream Queens). I don't think I've ever seen a movie where the zombie virus infects people slowly. While this movie was much less violent than a lot of zombie movies, it really was more horrifying because you had to watch this girl and her family dealing with watching her slowly turn into a zombie. Really excellent movie.

12. The Pyramid

I really wasn't expecting this one to be good, but it was actually entertaining. This one goes the way a lot of "let's go explore this scary place that we really shouldn't go in" movies go. The monster was interesting though. It kept me entertained for 90 minutes, but it definitely won't be going on any lists.

11. The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh

I liked this one. Very atmospheric and quiet, and I do love a movie with some crazy religious undertones. I feel like I'll definitely be needing to watch this one again though, just to really absorb everything.

14. The Houses October Built

Not bad, but not amazing either. I love the idea of driving around the country going to haunted houses, and let's be real, few things on earth are as terrifying as backwoods hillbillies. It was a clever idea, but there were far too many slow scenes of everyone hanging out in the RV.

13. The Possession of Michael King

I really enjoyed this movie. The entire thing is basically an allegory for Michael dealing with the death of his wife. This is found footage done incredibly well. The acting was great, the visuals were creepy, and the ending was satisfying. This one is definitely a keeper.

16. The Nightmare

This is actually a documentary about sleep paralysis, but I think the subject matter was creepy enough that it counts. It even threw in some jump scares when the people were talking about seeing the "shadow man." Very horrible, do not want.

15. Stage Fright

I had no idea what this movie was about before I saw it. I really expected a generic slasher movie. Instead it was a horror musical.

It was magical.

A summer camp for theater kids is terrorized by a slasher who sings angry slasher metal. Meatloaf is also one of the stars. I kind of loved it.

17. Crimson Peak

I loved it. I loved it SO MUCH I can't even describe it.

First off, the movie was beautiful. From the costumes to the set, everything was visually stunning from the first frame to the last. Tom Hiddleston (why you gotta be so sexy Loki?) was fantastic, as was Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska.

I really love Guillermo del Toro's movies because they always seem more sad than truly scary to me. "Devil's Backbone" and especially "Pan's Labyrinth" are other favorites of mine, but I feel like this is his masterpiece.

I hyped this movie up so much in my head ever since I saw the first trailer that I was a bit worried it wouldn't live up to my expectations, but it absolutely did. Loved it loved it loved it.

18. The Last Winter

I actually quite enjoyed this one. Strong cast with Ron Perlman and Connie Britton, and even if the CGI effects in the end were a bit student filmy, I liked it. I absolutely love natural disaster movies and haunted house movies, and this sort of combined both of them with a healthy dose of "is it a monster or are they just crazy?"

19. The Curse of Downers Grove

Dear god, this movie sucked. So much. The narrator had a deeply irritating voice, and there was FAR too much time wasted on boring teenager angst and not nearly enough horror. Definitely the worst I've watched so far this month.

21. White Settlers

So this movie was basically a Scottish version of "The Strangers." Decent movie all around. The views were gorgeous, and the pig masks the bad guys were wearing were suitably creepy. Very strange ending though.

20. Would You Rather?

I enjoyed this one. Twisted rich people offer a bunch of poor people shiny money to play a sick game of Russian roulette with each other, and a cameo by Penguin from "Gotham." (Can he play anyone who isn't creepy? Thinking no.) First movie this month I've had to look away for part of - I cannot handle eye stuff. I liked this one more than I expected to.

22. Fear Clinic

Interesting visuals and good leading actor choice with Robert England, but on the whole this movie didn't impress me. I like the premise but I just couldn't get into this one.

23. Trollhunter

Norway has trolls. That is all.

Found footage done right. With trolls.

I kind of love Scandinavian horror movies.

25. Julia's Eyes

I really liked this one. I enjoy movies where you aren't sure if there's actually a bad guy/monster or if the protagonist is just crazy. One feature I really loved was how once Julia lost her sight, we didn't see any of the other character's faces. Shooting it that way was disorienting and really made Julia an even more sympathetic character because the audience was as blind as she was to who the killer was.

24. Come Back To Me

Second good one today! Creepy creepy premise with a satisfying ending. Decent acting and the characters actually didn't make terrible choices that made me want to punch them. Another purposely disorienting movie due to the dream sequences - you really lose track of what's a dream and what's real. I knew nothing about this one going in, and I recommend it that way. I'd definitely watch this one again.

26. Creep

Let me start off by saying I didn't like this movie. However, it was completely effective. at what it was trying to do. From the first moment, Josef absolutely made my skin crawl. I can't stand uncomfortable, awkward discussions like they were having throughout the early parts of the movie before things started getting REALLY weird. Probably why I despise small talk so much.

So while I didn't like the movie and have no urge to never watch it again, it did its job very well, and it couldn't have had a more perfect title. Unless maybe they called it - "...And Now I Need To Shower."

27. Burke and Hare

Really fun movie. I love a good horror comedy, and this one really impressed me. Reminded me a bit of "I Sell The Dead" just from the tone. Great cast with some impressive surprise cameos (Christoper Lee! Tim Curry!). All in all, I really liked it. Sometimes you just want to watch something silly and British!

28. The Perfect Host

Really liked this one. The whole reason I chose this one was because of David Hyde Pierce. Niles Crane being all crazy? Of course I have to see that! I enjoy a movie where the bad guy isn't who you're expecting and this definitely fit the bill.

29. Kidnapped

Fairly brutal Spanish home invasion movie. Pacing was a bit slow for my liking. Not smart enough to be "Funny Games" and not entertaining enough to be "Home Sweet Home." Skip this one if you haven't seen it.

30. Exeter

Fairly generic "where's trapped in a scary place and WE GONNA DIE" movie. Oh teenagers, when will you ever learn that hosting a keg party in a creepy asylum never ends well. Creepy asylum gave it some good atmosphere but definitely a very forgettable movie.

The best month of the year has arrived and we all know what that means - pumpkin spice everything and 31 new horror movies! Year seven of my annual tradition begins so I give you. . .

OCTOBER ORGY OF VIOLENCE 7 - THE SEVENTH SON

31. The Taking of Deborah Logan

Good start to the month. I love a good possession movie, and when documentary style footage is done well, I really enjoy it. I found this whole movie very very unsettling. The nice old lady, the alzheimer's aspect. . . all good contributions to creeping me out.

1. Trick R Treat

I love this movie. Straight to DVD because of studio BS, this movie was screwed out of the theatrical release it should have had, but the internet prevailed and made it a cult classic. I LOVE anthology horror. Short stories and short films really lead themselves to the horror genre. I've sat through a lot of horrendous anthology horror films (ABCs of Death, I'm looking at you!) but this one is just...perfect.

It has a stellar cast and if you'd like to see a town that looks like what my SOUL is made of, just watch the opening scene. I want to live in this town filled with werewolves and tiny little murdering creatures.

Don't let the straight to DVD aspect make you pass this movie by if you haven't seen it. I would literally watch this movie and then immediately watch it again. I love it that much. In fact, I lent my DVD to someone and forgot who. I still have no idea what happened to my DVD, but I happily just bought another copy because knowing that someone loved it enough to not give it back pleases me.

Happy Halloween everyone!

2. The Cabin in the Woods

Spoiler alert: I love meta. I love fan service. I am a nerd, CATER TO ME CINEMA. As a lifelong horror fan, this movie gives me the biggest horror nerd boner. One day I'm going to watch the entire elevator scene fame by frame to make sure that I see all the monsters because I notice a new one every time I watch it. Joss Whedon is a cruel god, but I will continue to worship him.

3. Pet Sematary

"The soil of a man's heart is stonier. A man grows what he can, and he tends it. 'Cause what you buy, is what you own. And what you own... always comes home to you."

This is the first Stephen King book I ever read, and it has always stuck with me. The quote I mentioned is one of my favorite quotes. Not going to lie, creepy implications or not, it's probably going to be on a sign on our farm one day. Fred Gwynne is PERFECT as Jud Crandall. Best Maine accent I've ever heard on film. The movie definitely has its cheesy moments because...80s, but I can watch it over and over again.

"Sometimes dead is better."
