Fade to Black                                  (1980)
October 15 This one had a really good premise and the end result turned out to be decent. Dennis Christopher was convincing enough as the main character, the ideas they came up with from this premise were good and I liked how they referenced a range of other films even including obscure classics. However, there were a few shortcomings that keeps it from being really good. There were a couple moments where I felt like they over-explained what movies they were referencing. Right after the first kill, the main character literally states the title of what film he based his kill off of and then lists the entire cast. That and the conclusion near the end just wasn't very satisfying. This is still a decent movie, but I think it could've been better and the premise wasn't executed as well as it should've been. I'd honestly like to see a remake of this one as it's a horror film that could actually benefit from being remade.

The Ruins                                  (2008)
October 10 "We're being quarantined here. We are being kept here to die!" "This doesn't happen! Four Americans on a vacation don't just disappear!" The only reason this was even on my radar was because there was a little bit of backstory between me and this movie years ago. I was 11 when my dad rented it back when video stores where still a huge thing and he was watching it in the background around the time I was trying to sleep. I remember being terrified by what I heard in the background to the point where I ran to him crying when it was over. Because of that I was scared off (no pun intended) from the horror genre for a few years until I started to gain interest in the genre where I started off with ones that I knew wouldn't scare me and then worked my way up from there. I was curious of what I would think of it now considering that I've seen much worse and to see how it stands on its own merits. Now, I kind of anticipated this reaction going into it, but I didn't find it scary at all. In fact, I found it to be really lame. This movie not being scary wouldn't be a problem, but the supposedly scary scenes feel like they're trying to be all like "ooohh, scary thing right here! Be scared by it!" I'm surprised they didn't hammer it in even further by having a live audience scream whenever something happens. That's how stupid this movie thinks its audience is. Beyond that the characters are dull cliches that you've seen in many other horror movies, the dialogue is really poorly-written and the acting sucked. I guess some of the effects were OK and the setting of this movie was interesting. There were also a couple of OK moments that kept this movie from getting the lowest rating possible. So, yeah this is nowhere near as scary as my 11 year old self thought it was. Hell, I'm sure he wouldn't be as scared if he actually saw what was happening since "The Ruins" are a pile of fucking leaves and vines. It was just really dull to sit through and the experience I had with it years ago is more memorable than the film itself.

The Deadly Spawn                                  (1983)
October 5 As far as campy horror goes, this one is entertaining. The story and acting is delightfully cheesy and for a low budget film, the effects here are actually decent. It's not essential viewing, but if you love campy horror films then you might like this one.

Burning Bright
October 3 "Never touch the cage." This is one that had an interesting concept, but didn't really live up to it. On the one hand the scenes with the tiger were decent and were executed well, but the rest of it didn't do much for me. I wasn't really invested in the characters and while they weren't unlikable, there wasn't really anything special about them for me to truly care. If the writing and character development was improved, I would probably consider this to be good, but as it stands it's just OK.

Black Sunday
October 2 "You will never escape my vengeance, or of Satan's! My revenge will seek you out, and with the blood of your sons, and of their sons, and their sons, I will continue to live forever! They will restore me to life you now rob from me!" This may be disgraceful to say as someone who claims to be a horror fan, but I had never seen anything directed by Mario Bava. I've even been meaning to see this particular one last year, but never got around to it for whatever reason. Better late than never though, I guess. Anyways, this was a good one to start with. It's a very interesting story and it has this chilling atmosphere to it. Barbara Steele delivers a really good performance as well and the technical aspects like the cinematography was just stunning. While it didn't reach that line of greatness for me, I still think it's a classic horror film and I'm now curious to see what Bava's other work is like.

"Always nice to see someone else that liked The Green Hornet. I do think it's better than people give it credit for, especially because like you mentioned it's different from what you'd normally expect"
