Greetings and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! While I’ve finished reviewing scary movies for this month (and you can find all of those reviews here), I thought it would be nice to do something I did last year–a sort of roundup post, I guess. Last year, I called it a “Master List” (which I reblogged earlier, if you care to have a looksee), but this year, since my reviews are a mere fraction of what they were last year, I decided to rank the films I watched from my lowest grades to the best of the best.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! How about one last little reblog from last year’s Spook Series? Here’s what I like to refer to as last year’s “Master List.”
See that picture above? THAT’S HOW MANY MOVIES I WATCHED LAST MONTH.
…No. That’s a lie. But I did watch a lot of freaking horror movies for Spook Series–79 of them, if I did my math correctly. But I was looking at my lists a while back and I thought it would be cool to do something I intended to do yesterday, but didn’t: create a master list. Like, I have all these different movies, but when it gets down to it, what are the ones you really need to watch?

I dealt with a lot of spooky categories last year, but then there were a few films that didn’t quite fit. Hence this list of what I like to refer to as “Eerie Extras.”
Happy Halloween, kiddos! Hope you’re donning costumes and/or gobbling candy while you’re reading this last Spook Series 2013 post. It’s been a fun ride with lots of different horrors (all of which you can view in the Spook Series Archives), but alas, all good things must come to an end.

Good day, friends! The wonderful Mr. Eric Isaacs of The IPC recently challenged me to watch one of his favorite films ever, The Exorcist III. All I had to say about that was CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. Check out our little discussion about it! Also, stay tuned next week for when Eric accepts my challenge to him to watch an epic classic!
In 2012 – when I first started this place, I used to do special themed posts on Holidays that no one ever read. On Easter of 2012 I published a post about Exorcist III and went on about Satan and his buddies but no one ever looked at it because no one looked at my blog and no one wanted to read about Easter. In 2013, I re-posted it and a couple of people looked at it, but, if you wanted to read about one of my all time favorite movies, you could do that HERE and I would only love it.
I had also just bought some graphic design software and was teaching myself how to use it and I made a fancy movie poster for E3 that isn’t on the post any longer and I can’t find it on my computer so I made a new one for…

Say it ain’t so! Is this really my LAST batch of horror films for this year’s Spook Series? How did this month go by so fast?! Well, I’ve had an absolute blast watching all this stuff—even if I did only get through a fraction of the films I’d hoped to watch. I know 18 isn’t anything to be ashamed of, but last year I did 79, dammit! Clearly, my ambition has diminished since last year. Haha. But enough with my woes. Continue reading
Does anybody watch this show? I kind of feel like I’m all alone on my own little Grimm island sometimes. It’s funny though—when I finished season one of this show, my response was fairly lukewarm (see my review here). I liked it, but I didn’t know if I really cared to keep up with it. But I’d heard season two was better, so I gave it a shot. Now, I am firmly hooked. Have you been considering giving NBC’s Grimm a shot? Continue reading
Thought I was done with TV premieres? Think again! Got two of them coming atcha this week, actually—both of them very Halloween appropriate. But I was vastly curious about this NBC adaptation of DC Comics’ Hellblazer series, so I thought I’d test the waters. Honestly, I’ve never really gotten super into the Keanu Reeves Constantine movie, so I’m not sure what drew me to this. Continue reading
What makes a horror movie particularly awesome? A bunch of us over at Oracle of Film mused on that very topic, and you should probably go have a look.
And so it begins. Halloween here at the Oracle of Film. Tomorrow, we have my review of Paranormal Activity, joined up with [.REC] over at What About the Twinkie (depending on how well his organisational skills are – touch wood!) But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, because what would Halloween be without the scariest, creepiest people on the internet, combined into one article about horror movies. Forget Stalker Saturdays; we have just entered the domain of Stalker Sundays, people!
The question is as follows: What thing you would add to a horror movie to make it a perfect horror? This could be a phobia you want to see exploited. What movie monster would reduce you to a whimpering mess? It could be a director that hits the mark every time he attempts a horror movie. Or maybe it is a stock character that you think makes a horror movie…

With scary movies, stepping out of your English-speaking comfort zone can be a beautiful thing. Check out my list of Fearsome Foreign Films from last year’s Spook Series!
It’s the penultimate Spook Series 2013 category! Please, stop weeping. You’re embarrassing yourself. After alllll of those other categories (which I won’t bother to name, but you can find them all here), it’s time to address some foreign fare.

I’m sure most of you already know about this, but…It’s time to freak out, Marvel nerds. The first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has arrived–and several days early to boot! After announcing that the much-anticipated trailer would debut during next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it leaked online a few days ago (which Marvel blamed on Hydra). A blunder for them, perhaps, but a HUGE WIN for us! Continue reading
