I’ve got enough of the classics to last me a lifetime, and while I”ll probably pop’em in the DVD player sometime over the course of the month, I’m interested in catching up on both new and old releases I’ve been meaning to see. My Netflix list is growing by the day, but here is what is sitting near the top of my queue.
Drag Me to Hell (2009) – I don’t even know if it’s supposed to be good or not, but “horror” and “Raimi” was all I needed.
Trick ‘r Treat (2009) – This one has been delayed and delayed and was initially supposed to go to theaters, but instead has to settle for a direct-to-video release. A lot of buzz was behind this one for awhile, hopefully it lives up to the hype.
Deadgirl (2009) – I just really liked the DVD cover for this one and there seems to be a solid buzz behind it.
Edges of Darkness (2008) – Again, cool cover art. Post-apocalyptic world featuring vampires, zombies and what have you.
Black Roses (1988) – I’m a sucker for heavy metal horror films (Trick Or Treat, Hard Rock Zombies, Rock ‘N’ Roll Nightmare), and this one has been on my must-see list for awhile. I could’ve sworn I had checked Netflix for it before and they didn’t carry it… Oh well, they do now!
The Prowler (1981) – The infamous and apparently VERY graphic slasher movie. Can’t wait!
The Cave (2005) – I’ve had a million chances to watch this over the years and I never did. I guess I might as well do it now.
The Strangers (2008) – I’m not sure I’m gonna like this one, but it’s gotten high praise, so let’s do it.
See No Evil (2006) – It’s a WWE-produced slasher movie starring the wrestler Kane. Halloween this is not, but who knows — could be a fun b-movie.
The Descent (2006) – Sounds similar to The Cave. I’ve heard it’s good. Maybe I should do a Cave/Descent double feature one night.
The Ruins (2008) – Like The Cave & The Descent, this is a “let’s explore, oh no, we’re trapped with monsters” movie. Should I make it a triple-header?
Igor (2008) – Gotta show some balance with this CGI kids’ movie. I know it is not supposed to be very good, but it looks cute and I’ll support virtually any animated Halloween-related movie.
What do you guys think? Love these, hate these, have any recommendations?
Oh, and stay tuned for a “real” Halloween post tomorrow… It’s about CAN-DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!
