HMM 2018 Recap

Another year of thirty one films is completed! I’ve got to be honest, I’m exhausted beyond repair. 31 days of just watching horror movies is a big task. I think the only way to recoup would be… watching more horror films! That’s right! True horror fans don’t quit! We watch horror throughout the entire year! But before we officially end this marathon, let’s recap all thirty one films!

HMM18_FromBeyondFrom Beyond

We started strong with a Bronze Age horror classic about some crazy scientists meddling in the realms of dimensions. This HP Lovecraft adaptation is a sick and twisted movie with an amazing performance by Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton. Who would have ever thought the pineal gland held so much power in our brains!

MandyMandy

We went right to a modern and very surreal action/horror acid trip film featuring a very crazed Nicolas Cage! We love this film and applaud it’s ability of cinematography and use of color. Got to love the Virtual Boy title screens!

TheDeadlySpawnThe Deadly Spawn

Ahh, a low budget gem from the early 80’s that resembles John Carpenters The Thing remake. With that awesome theme song and over the top gore, The Deadly Spawn is a must for any sci-fi/horror fan!

ThemThem!

Then we made our first stop in the Silver Age of horror with Them! The very first giant bug movie made by man’s mistakes with nuclear power!

CandymanPosCandyman

The 90’s may have been a bad time for horror films. We saw the decline of the slasher genre diminish. But not all of them were bad and Candyman stands out as one of the best.

TheWolfManPosThe Wolf Man

Our very first Golden Age horror film is a beloved tale of a man with a terrible curse. I’m still going crazy over how The Wolf Man is probably more than just your run of the mill monster movie! A deep look into a mans psychosis or a real monster? You be the judge.

LeviathanLeviathan

Is it an Alien rip-off or is it it’s own film? Does it really matter? Even Alien was a rip-off of another movie. Either way, Leviathan is a great underwater movie of nightmarish proportions! But man, poor Ernie Hudson. It sucks that he goes all this way and dies within the last three minutes of the movie. It’s a shame.

HMM18Day1_BehindTheMaskBehind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon

All evil villains have a story and we got an inside scoop of a legend in the making! We follow Leslie Vernon a cheerful man that claims to be the next great slasher. Is he legit or merely playing a practical joke?

TheRelicThe Relic

Then we went over a 90’s film that has been overlooked through the years, but deserves more credit as a genuine monster film. The Relic is a great film with lots of energy and scares.

Wow! What a great list of movies. I’m so proud of this marathon. It has a great mixture of all the types of horror movies. I hope everyone that read my posts enjoyed them as much as I had writing them! It’s been a great thirty one days and now it’s time to take a few days off! I hope to return within a week with some more Scenes to Be Seen and another category of movie reviews! The first will be the new Halloween sequel. I figured it would be good to review after Halloween so people have a clear mind. See everyone next year for Horror Movie Marathon 2019!
