HALLOWEEN HAVOC 2019 - The Setup Thread

Recommended Posts

Okay - since I am an idiot - I will take over the reigns. Quick reminder - this is not be confused with the HorrorFest threads where people just post about the movies they watched in October.

Standard rules apply like all the other themes we have going.

STEP 1: Respond to say that you are in

STEP 2: PM me a movie selection that you feel best represents "Halloween". (Ideally with an explanation for why you are picking it)

NOTES

- Please try and select a movie that is easily available to find (streaming services or Youtube is the best)

- Please try not to select something that was done in a previous year.

- No real life animal cruelty (This is a rule from the past that I am keeping)

- Bonus reviews gladly accepted (these can be where you scratch your TV episodes itch)

Quick observations from me

Hatchet has been picked twice already. Both versions of Night of the Demons are done. I think Black Christmas was reviewed for Halloween AND Christmas

But which versions of Black Christmas? I mean I'm sure somebody did the original but whoever made somebody watch the remake should have to watch something equally terrible. 

I'm in of course

The original was in Havoc

I could have sworn it was the original in Christmas too - but it also could have just been you and JT discussing how you couldn't believe the original wasn't picked

EDIT

Yeah it was the original and here is the best part - @Brian Fowler was the one who picked (and should have known better) and @J.T. reviewed it which is too on brand

I couldn't not pick it. Literally half the conversations I had with Justin were about slasher films.

It's very very possible I'm also the person who picked Hatchet both times.

Lacelle supposedly picked the same movie two years in a row too (as least according to a post in one of those old Havoc threads)

Oh, it was also me that picked Black Christmas for Havoc. 

You know, maybe I just really like Black Christmas.

(And, yes, obviously I'm in)

Posting this here as personal reminder as what I've already picked

Spoiler

Demons
Lifeforce
Possession
Inferno
The House by the Cemetery

...so I promise this year I'll pick something domestic and probably far less art-y. But probably as violent.

I have re-upped my Netflix so feel free to assign me any horror shiz from there. 

I was planning on trimming down to just Amazon Prime, but thought better of it after watching The Witch redux on Sunday night.

We have an intern here who is beginning her journey through Scary Netflix, so I thought The Witch deserved a rewatch so that we could talk about it over lunch today.

I've seen Hush and The Ritual like a million times a piece, so I think I'm good on those two fronts.

I really should rewatch Gerald's Game, though.

Oddly, most of guys here on night shift seem to be watching Anime. I think mostly DBZ. I think for a while it was Attack of the Titans. 

Meanwhile, I’m usually in my office listening to podcasts.

I feel insanely stupid for asking, but is there a deadline to sign up?

I gotta watch a few candidates in order to even be able to pick a movie, and last year I signed up and then dropped out as I realized I didn't have enough time to come up with something good.

J.T., have you watched Lifechanger yet? It's one of those body-jumping movies like The Hidden with a unique twist that the being actually feels existential dread having to constantly jump from body to body.

I'm torn between a classic or pure junk food cinema.

I have heard good things about it, but never checked it out. 

I have been busy with loads of real life crap and my horror movie watching free time has been used while getting myself caught up on all of the good shit on Netflix that I have missed since I let my subscription lapse.

Didn’t I sign up? Oops

You hadn't officially. You made a few posts in the thread but I didn't want to assume.

Adding you now.

Btw, do enough of us have the Criterion channel that a film streaming on there is a suitable choice, if it’s also not available on Netflix or Prime?
