    Halloween Movie choices!

    I only get to choose one and The Wife has ultimate veto power, but here are the choices. What would you watch?

    Those are amazing choices, which makes it incredibly hard to choose one. I’ve seen a few of them multiple times. Ving in Dawn of the Dead is Incredible. Big Trouble in Little China is a goofy movie that you may either love or hate. The wife and I love it and have seen it half a dozen times. Wallace and Grommit kicks major ass! Young Frankenstein is a classic (the first date movie I saw for me btw, lol). The Thing was super creepy.

    We were just thinking about what was available on Hulu.

    Have you seen any of them before?

    Oh yes, quite a few times actually. 'The Thing' was the first R-rated movie I ever saw. And saw it in the theater. I saw Creepshow and The Thing as part of a double feature, actually.

    Wallace and Grommit may be the best g-rated movie I have ever seen.

    Since most of those are John Carpenter movies, just put them all down and go watch "They Live."

    Mrs. AG watches everything from the old school Friday the 13th to Rob Zombie's Devil's Rejects. She's a total horror flick chick. She even has a No Lives Matter/Jason T shirt.
    We agreed that she only wears that one when she's with me. Too many people don't have the morbid sense of humor that she and I share.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    Been a while since I’ve seen Creepshow. Couldn't agree more about Wallace & Grommit! So what was the choice last night?

    They Live, Escape from New York, The Thing and the lesser known Prince of Darkness are the Carpenter movies I can watch pretty much anytime. I personally think The Thing is his most complete film and my favorite, but They Live is entertaining and definitely relevant in 2020...

    We ended up watching Creepshow. That last story, with the germaphobe, man that gets me every time.

    I was excited as hell to hear that Rob Zombie was going to start making movies in what, the late 90s? But his movies tend to be a little nastier than I like. That said, his theatrical cut of the first Halloween movie was pretty good. His others are good too, just carry a little bit more edge than I personally like.

    It's kind of funny how critics hate his movies, while the regular movie-watching public thinks they're awesome.

    Not much for scary movies at all myself. That said, big trouble in little China is great stuff.

    My daughter is only 11 so we watched these ones during Halloween this year.

    Goosebumps
    The House with a Clock in Its Walls

    Goosebumps is as scary as I go...

    I was traumatized as a kid I think. My older sisters let me watch Nightmare on Elm street, Friday the 13th and My bloody Valentine.

    No wonder I got into body building and collecting guns. I’m don’t think I slept from 9 - 13 years old, lol.

    Prince of Darkness really gave me the creeps. I would love to see a remake of that one. I am tempted to post the “They Live” fight scene that they duplicated on South Park.

    Prince of Darkness is one best watched late at night with all the lights out. And maybe don't pay too much attention to the sometimes snarky synopsis that you might see. "Liquid Satan" really isn't quite fair lol

    He did kind of reach a peak and then stumbled a little with 'Ghosts of Mars' and 'Dracula 2000' but yeah, by and large he makes some damn entertaining movies.

    As a young teenager I was always fascinated with the topless scene in the first Halloween movie... when Michael walks up the stairs to find his sister brushing her hair in her bedroom.

    Both of those movies are easily watchable for me.

    You are a bigger fan of John C than me then. I did watch GoM once and was just meh, but I couldn't get past the first 5 or 10 minutes of D2000.

    A little late but check out the documentary called the Poughkeepsie tapes on Amazon prime. It's about a serial killer and it is a little disturbing.

    My 45-day holiday in the Canary Island comes to an end in January, and when I get home I'll be arriving into a full lockdown (everything closed except for shops selling food).

    I deteriorated quite a bit in the last full lockdown, so this time around I think I will run for 90 mins every day and then binge-watch Netflix. Binge-watching isn't and ideal beahviour but it might be the best way to handle this bad situation.

    Well heck, why not talk about scary movies for Christmas. Great new additions today!

    I love this little unknown vampire movie, Near Dark.

    So you know, it’s a bit atypical, but has some great actors and a fantastic director making her debut.

    I'm not a fan of horror films, but we have a tradition to watch Halloween movies together with my wife (some films/cartoons we watch with our children). Thanks to apps and Kodi on Firestick, I have access to a big library of on-demand movies. So, I made a list:
    Casper
    The Crow
    The Faculty
    Ghostbusters
    Hotel Transylvania
    Practical Magic
    ParaNorman
    Coraline

    The Crow definitely cemented Brando Lee's status as an action star. He was on his way to big things and big paychecks.
