Neat idea. I don't think I could pull that one off though without skipping some letters.

My themes pretty much stay constant. I just try to throw in some variability alongside my mainstay choices within the themes so I'm not watching the exact same lineup every year.

Usually I go with vampires, werewolves, zombies, anthology, occult, ghost/ haunted house, and some crossovers- like horror/sci fi, horror comedy, etc.

And I always watch all the Universal monster films.

Last year I really changed it up and did mostly horror tv. This time around, just films.

I think the letters X and Y are gonna be my downfall. A friend is doing an "Around The World" theme where he views a horror movie from a different country every day for the entire month. I've yet to come up with any themes that impressive.

Cabin in the Woods. 9/10. Great film. Very funny, well written, endlessly quotable. Loved the Hellraiser reference. Also, Mer-Man FTW. Basically, it gave me a 'husband bulge'.

I like the first 1/3, more of a horror, with the mystery and tense feel...then when it gets to the mutants and we fully see them, I lose interest.

Agreed. They had some good atmosphere and creep going there... then the mutants kill it. And about halfway through I figured out what had really happened to the ship, so the rest of the film didn't have much to offer.

Only reason I have it is a friend of mine got the blu for me a couple of Christmas' ago. Never watched it until now. Just that one time at the theater.

Beyond Re-Animator

I was so looking forward to them doing House of Re-animator. Sigh.

Have you ever read the original serial story: Herbert West- Reanimator?

I think I'll watch the debates tonight.

I count it as horror.

I've read Herbert West: Re-Animator. It's cool but different from the movie.
I liked Pandorum. It wasn't one of my favorites, but I definitely didn't hate it.

I liked Pandorum too. Kind of reminded me of Event Horizon.

I'd put Event Horizon way ahead of Pandorum.

I am supremely bummed that House of Re-Animator fell through. It would have been so cool to have Stuart Gordon direct Combs as West again. I do like From Beyond (with Combs and Crampton) and Dagon, both directed by Gordon.

The Masters of Horror episode 'The Black Cat' was excellent IMO, with Combs as Edgar Allan Poe.

I haven't read Herbert West, Re-Animator (yet).

10/3 -- Curse of the Voodoo aka Voodoo Blood Death

This one came in a "British Horror" box set with Tower of Evil, Inseminoid and Horror Hospital. Not exactly sure why it was chosen for the set...it's easily the worst of the four. Terrible flick.

This. The Mutants killed the movie.

I just finished watching VIRUS (1999). A highly underrated movie, in my opinion.

Its interesting how some of HPL's stories were adapted into full length movies, yet the original stories were very short, like Unnamable and From Beyond.

My fav HPL based movies: Reanimator, Unnamable, and The Resurrected

If you can track down a copy, another good one is the HBO movie Cast a Deadly Spell.

The movie I have lined up for tomorrow has a bit of HPL vibe too. More on that Friday Smile

I've seen that! I'd say it was pretty good.

And one of the other reasons I like it is that the main character is played by Fred Ward. Loved him in Remo Williams cheers
