Halloween Movie Madness '17: HauntedWeen

October is finally here!  This year, it brings the long awaited return of Halloween Movie Madness!  I decided I needed to try and make this year special, so most of the movies on this year's list are films that I haven't seen before(and I will probably wish I never sat through half of them).

HauntedWeen
(1991)


When you think of Kentucky, what pops into your head?  Most people would say horses(or heroin).  Hopefully, after reading this, the first thing that comes to mind when you think Kentucky will be HauntedWeen (it was made in Bowling Green).

This is a movie that sticks with you.  Not because it was compelling, or extremely gory, or because it had any sort of message about society as a whole.  No, this will stick with you because you will be scratching your head about what you saw, or still laughing about how bad it was.  It's a terrible movie, but in all the right ways.

Halloween Movie Madness '17: The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra

October is finally here!  This year, it brings the long awaited return of Halloween Movie Madness!  I decided I needed to try and make this year special, so most of the movies on this year's list are films that I haven't seen before(and I will probably wish I never sat through half of them).

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra
(2001)

Lost Skeleton of Cadavra

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra was released in 2001, but you wouldn't be able to tell that from watching the movie.  This movie is both a loving homage and parody of the cheaply made horror and sci-fi movies of the '50s.  They really hit the nail on the head here, especially with the dialogue.  It is redundant, obvious, and it feels poorly written.  In fact, they did such a good job with the writing that if you didn't know ahead of time what they were going for, you actually would just think it was poorly written.

Here now are six of my favorite moments from The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra.

Halloween Movie Madness '17: The Darkest Hour

October is finally here!  This year, it brings the long awaited return of Halloween Movie Madness!  I decided I needed to try and make this year special, so most of the movies on this year's list are films that I haven't seen before(and I will probably wish I never sat through half of them).

The Darkest Hour
(2011)


Last night brought us yet another movie I haven't seen before.  Unlike Them, this one was released a mere six years ago.

The Darkest Hour is a movie about two app developers traveling to Moscow to sell their app or secure funding or something like that.  The film doesn't do a great job of telling us the exact reason for their trip, just that it was about their app.

Halloween Movie Madness '17: THEM

October is finally here!  This year, it brings the long awaited return of Halloween Movie Madness!  I decided I needed to try and make this year special, so most of the movies on this year's list are films that I haven't seen before(and I will probably wish I never sat through half of them).

(1954)

This year's Halloween Movie Madness is full of a bunch of movies I have never seen before, and three of those movies are about ants.  The first of the three, THEM, came out just over 20 years before I was born..

THEM is a movie that stars Marshall Matt Dillon (James Arness), Mark Twain (James Whitmore), and Santa Claus (Edmund Gwenn) facing off against giant, mutated, radioactive ants in New Mexico and Los Angeles.

Frogs
(1972)


I've talked a little bit about Frogs before as a movie that would be perfect for RiffTrax, and I don't want to go on too much more about it.  I don't think I can help myself though!
