I’ll probably be watching horror films through all of November.

Oh yeah, same here, just not exclusively like I tend to do in October. For me, the Halloween vibe carries through until it starts getting really cold and the snow hits, so I continue focusing on horror/suspense until Thanksgiving or so and then wrap up the season with The Thing.

I’ll marathon that Universal box set this weekend (they’re all fairly short films), and I’ve been hearing good things about The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix, so I’ll probably check that out.

That’s not a House on Haunted Hill reboot, is it? Netflix is crazy… I saw they remade Sabrina the Teenage Witch of all things.

In name only, really. Aside from some character names and the titular house, it has nothing in common with the original film or novel.

It’s not a remake. It’s an adaptation of a horror comic.

If we’re gonna be pedantic, it’s an adaptation of a horror-themed reimagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

FTFM

Back in my late teens, when I was deep in my religious fundie phase, I tried giving up horror.

Thankfully, it didn’t take.

I loved horror during my religious phase (0-22ish) and listened to lots of Blaster the Rocketman, a horror themed christian band. (Yes, that works together and Yes, I still listen to and love them.)
JEDIT- This is still one of my favorite songs of all time, and it should be one of yours too!
Frankenstein’s Monster Wants a Wife
I love that album and it’s cover!!

Flash Gordon (1980) - not a Halloween or even a horror film (in that sense 😉) though a good enjoyable romp all the same.

One of my favorite movies. I never get tired of it. The soundtrack alone makes it worth a watch.

I failed miserably at squeezing in all the movies I wanted to watch by Halloween, so I extended my deadline to this weekend.

The soundtrack is great - a real stomping release really in tune with the film! Though every time I listen to it (or hear a track from it) - I can’t help but want to put the film on and give the whole thing a re-watch 😃

Am hoping they’ll do something special for the 40th anniversary for 2020 - maybe a nice and new 4K transfer, compiling all the commentaries and bonuses from the differing releases so far into one new sweet deluxe boxset, including the soundtrack separately or something similar…

Gonna go give Ted a re-watch 😃


Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

The Blu-ray came out when Universal was still butchering masters with DNR, and while it’s not the worst release I’ve seen, it’s scrubbed enough that it doesn’t look like film. A 4K remaster would be a day one buy for me, especially if it got a sweet box set like you guys in the UK always seem to get (I import a lot of UK releases for that reason).

Aye, we’re pretty lucky in general re the deluxe / ‘something different’ box sets over here - the French are getting this pretty cool looking 40th Anniversary set for ‘Zombie’ - Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead soon (hopefully there’ll be a UK/English language version too):-

and the new Carpenter 4K ‘Collectors’ releases, posted earlier in the thread, look superb too (am looking forward to seeing some reviews for them).
