Halloween (1978)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   Well, we’ve reached the final day of your spooky 31 day voyage. Did you think we WEREN’T gonna have John Carpenter’s Halloween for a second year in a row? THE NAME IS IN THE TITLE, ok look, I don’t feel like I really NEED to tell you why you should watch this but fine. SCENARIO. You’re sitting at home on Halloween night and wanna put on the perfect movie to get you feeling spooky, you put on Halloween. Why? Because all the reasons. Ok? ALL the reasons because it’s 40 plus years later and they’ve spent it making sequels and reboots and remakes and re-reboots and with the exception of Season of The Witch they’ve just been making the same movie over and over again, desperately trying to reach the peak that this one hit. It’s simple, it’s understated and no matter what bells and whistles they put on the films that followed, it’ll never be as good as that first night that Micheal Myers came home. 

 

     So there it is. We dropped the deuce. The 31 days of Halloween Number 2. So what did you think? Was this a successful sequel? Was it as good as the first or better? Did you like the original better? Be sure to let us know on all the main company social media accounts @VictorMoranLive and feel free to send us your thoughts as you watch along with us every day.

GO AWAY! YOU HAVE KILLED!! AND YOU WILL KILL AGAIN!!!

GO AWAY! YOU HAVE KILLED!! AND YOU WILL KILL AGAIN!!!

Deep Red (1975)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   Back to Italy for day 30 where a jazz pianist falls into a mystery after witnessing the horryfic murder of a psychic. This Dario Argento directed Giallo film is where he got his bearings with violence. The camera moves are jarring, the lighting is meticulous, the edit is like a dream and the kills are MUAH, pizza chef. Sprinkle in a score by Goblin filled with a funky bassline and your typical italian dubbing situation and you have yourself a delightfully brutal horror movie that has DEFINITELY earned its reputation in the community. I keep telling you, the Italians crazy.

Scanners (1981)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   Day 29 finds us in a dystopian Canadian future where an outbreak of telepaths or “scanners” is becoming a growing threat. Among them is Cameron Vale, a homeless man with incredible abilities, who is about to be kidnapped by the government and sent to take out a rogue psychic operative on a killing spree. With a synth score and masterful special makeup effects by Dick Smith, Scanners is the kind of horror that has you on edge from subtle beginning to spectacular mind fucking end. Toss in a career making Michael Ironside performance that would have him typecasted for decades and a head explosion that would make a nun spit and you got yourself a stew going. It’s simple, it’s suspenseful, it’s Cronenberg. What more do you need?

Prince of Darkness (1987)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   We make our way back to Los Angeles for day 28 where a priest, played by horror icon Donald Pleasence, finds a creepy church basement unexplainably filled with candelabras and housing a primordial ooze. John Carpenter brings his trademark sense of dread and synthetic score to this end of days story that’s loaded with regulars like Victor Wong, Dennis Dunn and Peter Jason. The practical special/makeup effects are great, OH and Alice Cooper plays a possessed homeless guy, FUCK thats right, theres a BUNCH of possesions. Look, there’s a lot going on in this movie but believe me, it scary as shit and the ending is perfect. Kiss your ass goodbye ‘cause the prince of darkness is here.

Zombie (1979)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   Day 27 leads us to a tropical island for Italian director Lucio Fulci’s bat shit zombie movie complete with bright red blood, over the top gore and a zombie fighting a shark. No yeah, you read that last sentence correctly. A zombie fights a fucking shark. Bless the Italians. The kills are interesting, the acting’s all turned to 11 and the audio is horribly dubbed. What’s not to love? If you consider yourself a REAL zombie fan and you HAVEN’T seen this movie then trust me, you aren’t a real zombie fan. So get your fix of Italian horror lunacy with Lucio Fulci ‘cause the dead are rising and they’re going to eat you.

LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF THEIR AGONY.

LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF THEIR AGONY.

Wishmaster (1997)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   From the woods to a loading dock, on day 26 a drunk crane operator starts a chain of events that lead to the release of an ancient evil djinn who must answer three wishes to the one who woke him in order to release an unholy gang of his kind upon the Earth. Now I don’t know what it is about this movie but the sound design always got me. Like how in quiet scenes they always raised the level of the sound of the paper burning with each drag of a cigarette. Little things like. Not to mention Andrew Divoff REALLY brings something special to the djinn even when under layers of prosthetics and makeup. It’s a fun little horror movie that’s flown under the radar for years. Give it a chance, just be careful what you wish for.

YOU BASTARDS, WHY ARE YOU TORTURING ME LIKE THIS?!?

The Evil Dead (1981)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   So it’s day 25 which is the perfect time to go into the woods with Sam Rammi’s low budget cult classic about a group of teens that accidentally unleash an ancient evil after playing an excerpt from the book of the dead. Relatable AF, I know. Filmed over 12 weeks in the middle of nowhere this cabin in the woods story is SO intense that the director was taken to court in the United Kingdom over it. Low on story but high on creative gore, camera work and tricks, Evil Dead was even praised by Stephen King at the time; he called it the most ferociously original film of the year. If for no other reason you should watch this movie for Bruce Campbell as Ash who not only co-produced this movie but performed his own stunts in this truly horrifying film that will have you second guessing a vacation in nature for years to come.

The Others (2001)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   Wrapping up our parental horror section on day 24, off the British coast for an old school haunted house story… or is it? Written, directed and scored by Alejandro Amenábar The Others manages to bring life to an old standard in the horror genre. With a grounding lead performance from Nicole Kidman at its center, a strong supporting cast around her and an overall creepy atmosphere helped out by a big spooky mansion, this movie grabs on to your curiosity and never lets it go. So keep the light from coming in and be mindful of the staff because I’ve got a feeling that there’s ghosts in this house.

LOOK AT ME, DAMIEN! IT’S ALL FOR YOU!

The Omen (1976)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   Day 23 takes us to Rome where an American ambassador played by Gregory Peck ends up the guardian of the antichrist. At 5 years old little Damien is straight up creepy and fucked up shit begins to happen but after a weird nanny suicide and being visited by a priest that demands he kill his son, Gregory Peck’s stoic ass starts thinking it may actually be possible that THIS kid is the devil. Full of legitimately creepy sequences and a score that’s doing it’s fair share of the lifting, The Omen is full of the spooky vibes you’re looking for.

YOU WOULDN’T MIND MARRYING ME, WOULD YOU HENRY?

YOU WOULDN’T MIND MARRYING ME, WOULD YOU HENRY?

Eraserhead (1977)

 

[TRAILER] – [WHERE TO FIND IT]

 

   Now we’ve been steeping in the horrors of relationships but on day 22 (a.k.a. The double deuce) we are organically pivoting to the horrors of parenthood. I’ll start from the beginning. See Henry and his girlfriend have a baby, well, the hospital still isn’t sure it IS a baby but it’s definitely SOMETHING and it cries like a motherfucker. Written and directed by David Lynch this movie is full of trippy black and white visuals and batshit crazy performances that will have you laughing one second and terrified the next. With the constant humm of the dreamlike industrial landscape and his wife gone, will Henry step up and care for his ‘not sure if it’s a baby’ or is his only shot at happiness the sweet embrace of death? I mean, I do hear that in heaven everything is fine.
