Is that the one with Leslie Neelson drowning people? A coworker and I from work were reminiscing about old Horror films we'd seen and I couldn't remember if that bit was from Creepshow or not.

" It's Father's Day, Bedelia! Where's my cake!?! "

I do wonder though... Bedelia and the rest of the clan have been doing the Father's Day ritual for 7 years... why did he wait til year 7 to finally make an appearance?

After passing out last time it was on, I finally saw The Gorgon. It had a cool set up but it lacked much in execution.
The Devil Rides out was better but also problematic. Christopher Lee's character is kind of like a plain clothes Dr. Strange. He keeps kidnapping his young friend & some other girl to keep them from joining a Satanic coven. There's no real explanation for why consenting adults can't become Satanists though. It feels patronising that Lee basically says "I'm older than you & therefore know better than you about about whther becoming a Satanist is a valid lifestyle choice." He's adept at magic & accepts the aid of the Godess Tanit, so there really needs to be a better discussion of why some occult things are okay but not others. Much of the protagonists' actions feel like overblown religious intolerance. It ends with time travel shenanigans.

Two movies on the block for me tonight.

Se7en and The Day After.

Not typical Halloween fare, but horrifying none the less. Tomorrow after the wife goes to work it'll be The Cell and Prometheus.

There is a 'medical' scene in this movie that makes me cringe.

It's fantastic. I loved it so much more than I thought I would. For me it's one of the top 3 or so horror films of 2012 that I've seen (although it's more of a dark comedy).

That's a good flick. My favorite segment is the one with the kids stuck on the raft with the sludge monster.

Hey Coop, have you seen A Serbian Film? If so, what is your opinion of it?

Yup, I've seen both the uncut version and American cut. I think it's alright. It isn't necessarily a great film, but it's well made and effective. Unfortunately, while there is an intentional political context/commentary there, its pretty much completely lost and doesn't come through properly at all (Life and Death of a Porno Gang does a much better job at that, which is really similar). I'd recommend knowing about the content ahead of time...which by itself would pretty much tell you if you want to see it or not.
