    I rented COOTIES on vudu a couple of days ago. It's funny and more gory than I expected. It was ok, but you can definitely save your money and wait until after the theaters to watch.

    One film that I'd like to mention is IT FOLLOWS. I blind bought this one (which I do with a lot of horror movies... I'm a total junkie) and really enjoyed it. Not so much scary as it is downright creepy. I liked it though. It's about this girl who sleeps with this guy and finds out - from him - that he's passed on this curse to her (sexually) in which something will follow her and try to kill her. It will be disguised as a person, but isn't a person. Only she will be able to see it and she can only avoid it by passing it on to another person. It sounds kind of cheesy, but I was surprised how much I ended up liking it. In my opinion, it's a fresh take on a genre in which "fresh" is not a word you can generally use to describe ANYTHING. It doesn't overuse the "jump scare" tactic like most horror movies do nowadays. I definitely recommend checking it out.

    I actually blind bought HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER just today, because it was only $5.99 at Best Buy on Blu-Ray. Will be watching it either tonight or in the next couple of days.

    I caught THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT on Netflix a few days ago. It was a - what I like to call - "Handycam" movie. I have this weird proclivity for them. Anyways, it was ok.This group of people go looking for an "extreme" haunted house (not a real haunted house, but the kind they setup during October that you can pay money to walk through.) and can't find one. They hear about this particular one called "The Blue Skeleton" that travels around and you have to have a password to enter. They finally find out where it's at, go to it and get the scare of their lives. Some things that happen on their journey are pretty...well, interesting. Not the greatest movie, but worth a "free"watch on Netflix.

    I'll be going to see BEFORE I WAKE early this week and will also be writing a review about it for Halloween Fest right here on HDN. I will also be doing the same for the new Paranormal Activity 3D flick.

    It's Batman Day, so I'm watching Batman & Robin right now for the first time in nearly 20 years. It's f***ing horrifying.

    Watched Annabelle the other night. It's one of those things where I just don't get why it has bad reviews, I thought it was ace - some genuinely terrifying moments EEK!, and well up to the usual standard of most Blumhouse horrors.

    I hated it!
    One of the worst of this year.
    Was just trying to be a quick cash grab of Conjuring.

    Went back and watched Halloween III Season Of The Witch last night.

    I watched the whole lot of my Halloween complete collection box set a few weeks ago but skipped that particular part first time round as it doesn't fit in with the whole Michael Myers saga at all.

    If they just released it as a stand alone film and just called it Season Of The Witch I don't think it would have got such damning reviews and the backlash it received upon release. It's not the worst film, just not what the Halloween fans were expecting.

    The night before that I watched Rob Zombies Lords Of Salem.

    Can't wait for 31, his new flick.
