October Horror Movie Challenge
Hey, another October Challenge coincidence...

Hanging up my hockey mask, and putting on my puffy shirt to watch:

INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE (1994)

I have good memories about this movie, which I haven't seen since the theater. Possibly it's because I saw it with a girl I really, really liked (who dug Anne Rice), so we'll see.

Bad wigs, ahoy. Outside of that, the picture looks great.

And I fully expected not to think much of the picture this time round, but it's okay-to-good on the whole.

I remember well the controversy about the casting of Tom Cruise, and how I grudgingly enjoyed his performance as Lestat (I was fairly anti-Cruise in general back then, outside THE COLOR OF MONEY and until the first M:I movie). His scenes hold up especially well.

Who really sucks (haha) in this movie is Brad Pitt, who gets blown off the screen not only by Cruise but also by 9-10 year old Kirsten Dunst-- which is really saying something since this is probably the only movie she's been good in. Louis is kind of a thankless role, in Pitt's defense-- but he is almost completely wooden and gives only the briefest flashes of why, gay vampire or not, anyone would want to hang out with this guy for eternity.

Antonio Banderas is also bad in this and gets stuck with the dumbest wig. Stephen Rhea is fun. The movie works best when it's going for arch horror instead of honest drama, really. But on that score, there are many, many better vampire movies out there.

Like this one:

BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA (1992)

Seems we hash out the relative merits of this one every few months around here. But I think it says something that there hasn't been a high-tone Dracula adaptation in the almost 30 years since (and we're due, damn it)-- for all the things it gets wrong, the things it gets right would be hard to top. Another Dracula movie for the unranked classics file.

I went for early-90s romantic vampires last night because I tried to watch Joe Bob's Halloween Hideaway live, but the Shudder app kept crapping out on me. I will have my revenge.

CAST A DEADLY SPELL (1991)
[Image: afJIJ9AXD2WyNmnzbiWLKZU0tQ9.jpg]

Wow, was this great.

A fantastic genre hybrid which fuses film noir with the occult and Lovecraftian horror.  Just the idea of that will be inherently appealing to a certain sort of viewer, and if you’re in that camp, there’s an enormous amount of fun to be found in here.  Its “alternate 1940s Los Angeles” setting, where the casual usage of magic is commonplace, is a kind of brilliant conceit that allows the story to organically incorporate the fantastical elements without taxing the audience’s suspension of disbelief too much; if you can buy into that initial ask, you’re set.  Fred Ward could probably have played this kind of role in his sleep, but he’s great as the hardboiled, anti-magic private detective.  Plus we’ve got David Warner to add some gravitas, Clancy Brown as an old-fashioned slimeball heavy, and Julianne Moore as a sexy femme fatale with her own agenda.  Punchy dialogue evokes the noir classics, and it’s also self-aware about its genres in a way that’s often very funny, but it never fully crosses over into being a pure send-up; instead, it just seems to be having a great time playing around with its ideas, and that feeling is palpable when watching.

I ended up watched that for that horror decade elimination game we were playing not all that long ago. It felt a little too hit or miss for me. It got a little too cutesy with some names, and the winking, but on the hand there's a couple really nice scenes in it. There's a sequel with Dennis Hopper that Paul Schrader directed.

That bathroom kill around the start of the movie is fucking great though.

Yeah, WITCH HUNT-- it's not good.

Which is too bad. I love CAST A DEADLY SPELL. There was long time when it wasn't available anywhere and I paid through the nose for a used VHS, early aughts.

Night 43

I'm really liking the selection of movies on Tubi.

Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion (1972)

[Image: FemalePrisoner70102.jpg]

This has got to be the best Women in Prison movie ever made, and just in general one of the coolest prison movies. The only one of these I'd seen before was the third one, and while that is good, it didn't prepare me for how good this movie would be.

Watching this had me wondering if there's some stock Japanese evil warden characters, because if there isn't, the warden in Riki-oh would seem to be a direct reference to either this movie or the manga it's based on. That warden also takes a stabbing to the eye better than anyone.

The Alchemist (1983)

[Image: MV5BMGFjMWY1MjktN2RiYS00ZTc0LThmNWEtYmMz...@._V1_.jpg]

If this movie was half as cool as it's poster it'd be twice as good.

The Alchemist is a low budget Charles Band picture that takes place in the '50s seemingly for no other reason than Band had access to a nice looking old car. The fact it takes place in the '50s is so incidental you may miss it actually takes place in the '50s as opposed to her just having a cool car. In fact that it takes place in the '50s was something I wasn't even aware of until looking at the wiki page for the movie. This is just competent enough to work if you also imagine how it could have been better while watching it.

The print on Tubi of this movie is also atrocious, and at least twice while watching it I noticed a watermark that'd come up in the lower right of the movie for something called Synergy I think it was.

While I get maybe not everyone that's old enough to drive can drive from the passangers seat, things get funny here when the guy in passangers seat does pretty much nothing as the woman that picked him up zones out and almost goes off the road multiple times. He also doesn't seem all that interested in finding out exactly what just happened with that, where I think most people would want to know why the person driving just kind of went blank and killed them.

THE DARK HALF (1993)
[Image: 71172.jpg]

The Stephen King source material has a good premise, and George Romero’s adaptation mostly handles it well.  The idea of tapping into the more sinister aspects inside you -- and then what happens when that manifests without a healthy outlet to control it -- is the backbone for a solid horror story with some strong imagery put together by Romero.  Timothy Hutton’s pretty terrific in a role that allows him to explore a fairly wide range; the way he transitions in and out of his two personas here involves some interesting choices that Hutton capably navigates (he’s also aided by some fun makeup as things move along).  It does eventually get kind of slashery (and more in a perfunctory way than an exciting way), as Hutton’s psychotic alter ego starts to run up a body count, and there’s not a ton of motivation beyond the story’s need to get progressively more unhinged.  Also, the pacing is drawn out much further than it really needs to be, and that turns the midsection into a little bit of a slog before things rebound for a strong finale.

Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies (2012, via Comet)

[Image: abez.jpg]

During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln leads the secret service in a battle against the undead. This is by far the best Asylum film I've seen. I know that's not saying a lot, but I appreciated Bill Oberst Jr.'s earnest performance as Lincoln and it felt like they were at least trying with this one. The reason Lincoln refers to the walking dead as "zombies" in the film was actually clever in my opinion. Teddy Roosevelt also shows up as a kid....for some reason (Lincoln gives him a big stick to use as a weapon). I watched this on Comet and most of the gore was censored or cut out. Kind of lame.

Another standalone, which is a little odd considering there's only a few episodes left. This one's mostly told in flashbacks, with a young Sam and Dean staying in a creepy hotel in 1993 that happens to haunted by an old crone that's killing kids. This felt like their attempt at doing a Monster Squad/IT-style episode and it ended up being pretty fun. I thought the kids playing Sam and Dean did a good job, especially young Dean. There was also a pretty decent jump scare involving a candy machine. When they finally ID'd what the monster really was, I was a little surprised it hadn't been tackled on the show before. Seems like a biggie.

The Masque of the Red Death
[Image: 220px-MasqueOfTheRedDeath%281964film%29.jpg]
Great poster for a great movie. Love this one. I've been kind of saving it for the end of my month of Price films, and if anything, I'm even more appreciative of it now. Price is wonderful in this, so snide. So great when he's talking matter of factly about how much he loves Satan. I always forget how, despite being an obvious villain, he's got this really complicated relationship with the leading lady. In the end, she seems almost conflicted about leaving him. I also love how the ending presents itself through interpretive dance rather than a literal account of what happened. Really good looking, funny, loads of good dialogue, and goddamn, it's the most 2020 movie ever. Doesn't get much better than this one.

Parents
[Image: 51MVT0TCY0L.jpg]
This movie looked like the scariest thing in the world to me, when it was released and I was a little kid. What if your parents were serial killer cannibals? is a great hook, especially to a little kid. Unfortunately, it wasn't worth the thirty year wait. Coming on as a satire of the 50s nuclear family, with Randy Quaid as the cannibal paterfamilias, this has a lot going for it, but it really called for a director who was going to play it to the hilt. Someone like Joe Dante or even John Waters could have taken this and crushed it, but instead it's a Bob Balaban film. It's remarkably timid for the premise, the child protagonist is a real wet noodle, and Balaban is not, to put it gently, much of a craftsman. It's surprisingly boring, and only wakes up a bit in the last twenty minutes, but its far too little, too late by then.

No way, Parents is great. I wouldn't want someone else doing it, the whole tone and feel of that movie is so weird. It's so strange and dry, I can't even imagine John Waters or Joe Dante doing Parents.

That's some phrasing.

There's one sequence in The Dark Half, maybe the first time the killer gets someone, (the killer is getting someone at their apartment) that's so No Country for Old Men—like a stylized version anyways—that it makes me wish George Romero had done something like that.

I'm not really crazy about Hutton in that movie, at least in his main writer part. It one that's grown on me, there's definitely some strong parts of the movie. 

Rooker is good in it.
