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."

4. Storm of the Century

"Born in sin? Come on in!"

Another four hour 90s Stephen King TV epic. I have so many fond memories of this movie. Whenever it would be a cold, snowy winter day where I had nothing to do, my Mom and I would hunker down in the house and watch this. We were an odd family. ;-) This movie is amazing. It's so very MAINE.

5. Zombieland

This barely counts as a horror movie, but it has zombies and is filled with awesome. I saw this in the theaters twice, and it has pretty much become my happy place movie. I want to be Woody Harrelson when the zombie apocalypse happens.

6. The Shining

Now when I say that I watched The Shining, I am, of course, referring to the actual good version i.e. 1997 TV movie that actually follows the book. This version is infinitely better and over four hours long. Aaron Hefler might be the only person who agrees with me, but we have to suffer the pain of being right a lot.

Seriously, watch this version. SO. MUCH. BETTER.

7. Needful Things

I love this movie. The devil comes to a small town in Maine (like you do) and offers the townspeople the objects that they most desire for a price. Great acting with the kind of ending I like in a King movie.

8. The Blair Witch Project

The original found footage movie! I still remember when this came out in the 90s and tons of people were convinced that it was real. That kind of hype will never be possible again with the internet. I think it's a great example of the found footage genre. (Though I do have to wonder why everyone in every found footage movie seems to be just annoying enough that you kind of want them to die.)

9. The Devil's Rejects

The thing I love about this movie the most is how dirty it is. It's just like a nasty, seedy 70s exploration film. The bad guys are really bad and have no redeeming qualities at all, but you somehow still want them to get away just a tiny bit. I'm not a fan of most of Rob Zombie's films, but I love this one.

10. Se7en

"WHAT'S IN THE BOX?????"

This was another one of those "does this count as a horror movie" moments, but I think the murders are horrific enough that it counts. Fantastic, super creepy movie with a lot of really amazing actors. I really love the 90s.

11. 1408

The first of many Stephen King movies in the list! No one does atmosphere quite like Stephen King. This is a haunted hotel movie, but instead of wandering around a huge place like The Shining, it's one evil, creepy room. I'm not a huge John Cusack fan, but watching his transformation from skeptic to horrified believer was great. Very underrated King movie.

12. The Sixth Sense

"You ever feel the prickly things on the back of your neck? That's them."

This movie is Just. So. Good. This isn't just a good horror movie. It's a spectacular example of a movie period. Haley Joel Osment, Bruce Willis, and Toni Collette are all fantastic in this. It's a solid ghost story with a twist I never saw coming. 1999 really was an incredible year for movies.
