WEEK 3 – AARON’S FRIGHTFUL OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE PICKS

October 21, 2012

It’s October and you know what that means…HALLOWEEN! TRICK ‘R’ TREATING! AND SCARY MOVIES! I love this month, the heat starts to break, fall arrives, everything is pumpkin flavored, endless Halloween parites, and of course watching scary movies. I LOVE scary movies, and watching them during the month of October is always gratifying.

There’s a vast variety of ‘scary movies’; comedy-horror, slashers, science-fiction, thriller, monsters, satire, supernatural, found footage, the list goes on. The next four weeks I’ll be discussing my horror movie picks of the day, why I chose it, and I why I get a kick out of watching it.

Let us continue with WEEK 3, MUUUUAHAHAHHAAHAHHAHAH!!!!!!

Oct 15th

“The Woman” – Pardon my french, but this is one FUCKED UP MOVIE! Seriously, I never imagined “The Woman” would go as far as it would. I had the opportunity to watch this on Netflix instant and man oh man, was it a doozy. It tells the simple story about a a feral woman living in the woods near an isolated country home, where the bread winning father captures her, and decides, along with the families agreement, to keep her, and train her. It can only get positive from there…

Now available on Instant Netflix.

“From Dusk till Dawn” – OK, some of you might remember that I complained that Tarantino hasn’t done a horror film, yes he wrote this blood sucking thrill ride, but it’s more of a modern western w/ vamps, than a straight-laced horror film. Then again, nothing Tarantino touches is ‘straight-laced’. Nevertheless, this is a movie with supernatural elements, and it fucking rocks! With the help of “The Walking Dead” zombie-maker Greg Nicotero’s gooey, slimey, disgusting creature effects, this is a movie that I find to be a requirement to watch before Halloween. Lets face it, it’s not a scary movie, but it sure is BAD ASS!

Now available on Instant Netflix.

“The Omega Man” – Based on the novel by Richard Matheson, you may know that book entitled as “I Am Legend”. “I Am Legend” has been (re)adapted three times, first came the Vincent Price starrer “The Last Man On Earth” and the 2007 Will Smith blockbuster taking on the title of the book itself. But, this version I find to be the more superior version. Robert Neville is an army doctor, left to be the only survivor of an apocalyptic war waged with biological weapons. The plague caused by the war has killed everyone else except for a few hundred deformed, nocturnal people calling themselves ‘The Family’. The movie takes an interesting route about man vs. technology, being that ‘The Family’ despise science, Robert is a man of science, and believes it’s the key to saving the world. It’s a scary movie, because we’ve come so dangersouly close to a catastrophe like complete biological warfare.

Now available on Instant Netflix.

Oct 18th

“Killer Klowns from Outer Space” – Oh c’mon people, you know this is like a must watch for not just October, but really, for ANYTIME you feel like letting loose. It’s the perfect movie for letting your brain into mush. “Killer Klowns from Outer Space” is an amusing throw back to B-Movie stupidty of the worst kind. But there’s a certain charm and disturbance about a movie with fuckin’ ugly clown creatures, turning people into cotton candy victims. When I was younger, these creeps used to scare the hell out of me.

Now available on Instant Netflix & Streaming on YouTube.

Oct 19th

“C.H.U.D.” – Before “Home Alone 1 & 2”, John Heard & Daniel Stern starred in this midnight maddness of a horror film about NY’s homeless being turned into cannibalistic humanoid monsters. It’s not as violent or as extreme as I remembered it, but revisiting this 80’s classic is interesting in a few ways. More importanly though, the movie has a provactive commentary on the homeless, out of work people, recession, and so on. Still, those humanoid cannibals crack me up.

Now available on Instant Netflix.

Oct 20th

“Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer”  Michael Rooker stars in this ultra-chilling account about Henry, a killer who’s inspired by the crimes of Henry Lee Lucas. The movie takes disturbing routes with it’s characters, leaving you feeling violated, distrubed, and down right dirty. The iconic video tape scene will leave you chills, more than “A Clockwork Orange” ever could have.

Now available on Instant Netflix.

Oct 21st

“The House on Haunted Hill” (1959 version) – Vincent Price, the king of creepy goth, stars in this psychological thriller about a bunch of L.A. folks offered a chance to win some cold-hearted cash to stay in a haunted house for one night and stay alive to tell the tale. Not everything is what it seems, shadows lurk everywhere. He’s really controlling the scares? While the movie maybe cheesy it contains itself with some minding numbing sequences of it’s terrified supporting players.

Now available on Instant Netflix.
