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!
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!
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!
The 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!
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!
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.
The 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.
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.
Behind 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?
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.
The Bride of Frankenstein
We return to the Golden Age of horror once more with The Bride of Frankenstein. Considered to be one of the best sequels of all time to one of the best horror films of all time!
Bride of Re-Animator
Since doing Bride of Frankenstein, it only seemed appropriate to watch Bride of Re-Animator. A great sequel to Re-Animator! We follow another eccentric plot by Herbert West to bring the dead back to life!
Attack The Block
Here we have a modern film with great style! We witness a crazy alien invasion take place in an English neighborhood where our hero Moses proves himself to everyone!
A Nightmare On Elm Street
We took part in the entire Elm Street series! Seven films that feature our favorite slasher Freddy Krueger! Freddy dominated the silver screen during the 80’s and left us all fearing our own dreams.
The Abominable Dr. Phibes
Back to the Silver Age of horror about a crazed doctor seeking revenge on those responsible for his wife’s death. Before those crappy Saw movies happened. Dr. Phibes was bringing the pain!
Is there anything stronger than the bond between two brothers? Especially ones hellbent on murder and pain!
Another modern horror film that deserves more praise! A true example that practical effects are where it counts. We follow our Russian troops into the underbelly of a mad scientists works.
The People Under The Stairs
We follow a young boy named Fool that is stuck in a home owned by the a demented brother and sister. Their crazy white cannibals and they’re out to kill!
MST3K: The Crawling Eye
Here we honor a pioneer of comical commentary! Mystery Science Theater 3000 watching The Crawling Eye is one of the best ways to experience Silver Age monster films.
Time to check out a real odd body horror film from the 80’s! We’re all want to be rich but do we really want that kind of life?
Then we jump to modern film and check out a gore fest called Feast. This movie will truly gross anyone out but deliver a fun time!
What kind of marathon could we have without a Stephen King film? That’s why we chose Silver Bullet, a great werewolf film with a heartfelt story.
We checked out a great Golden Age movie featuring two horror giants Lugosi and Karloff! A sinister story of a man gone crazy with torture!
We step deep into hell as we follow a sick and twisted lot of people hellbent on finding lost loved ones.
We check out Peter Jacksons first film. Killer mutant aliens invade a small town in New Zealand! All in order to get a new an exotic food for their fast food chain.
Invaders From Mars
Then we checked out Tobe Hooper’s sci-fi horror remake about a young boy that witnesses an alien invasion in his backyard.
We Are Still Here
Then to a modern horror ghost film that doesn’t suck! We are still here features legendary Barbara Crampton and it’s a cool slow burn film with an epic showdown!
The Thing From Another World
Our last Silver Age film for the marathon is also one of the best of the age! The Thing From Another World is a claustrophobic film that inspired Ridley Scotts Alien.
We feature our last Golden Age film with Frankenstein. A story of a mad scientist playing God.
We travel into a surreal gore fest when five cops enter into hell and are slaughtered one by one.
Then we got into a period piece where western and horror is mixed together in a perfect blend. Russell is phenomenal in this film!
The Evil Dead
Last on for our marathon is the entire Evil Dead series. We explored the history of the original film! The pioneers that sacrificed a great deal to make a film that will forever be the most influential horror film!
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!
