Eight-Pack of Hammer Horror Films as the Countdown of My 100 Favorites Continues

I really hate it when life or fatigue get in the way of posting this countdown on a daily basis. Last night, I had the occasion to watch The Limehouse Golem with Bill Nighy and a film called The Apostle with Michael Sheen (Underworld franchise). Let's just say although watchable, these two won't be making …

That Time When Dee Wallace Turned Into a Pomeranian on Live Television

Earlier in the countdown I presented three werewolf movies. That doesn't mean that I was done with the shapeshifting lycanthropes. 70. The Howling 1981 Dee Wallace has to be the most underrated Scream Queen in the history of cinema. From Cujo to ET The Extraterrestrial, she has been bubbly blonding her way through blockbuster after …

Nine-Pack of Horror to Get You Through the Week

LEGO Batman says he has nine-pack abs. Well, on this hump day, I have a nine-pack of horror classics (I use the term loosely) to add to my countdown of My 100 Favorite Horror Films. TCM is continuing their month-long run-up to Halloween with the films of Christopher Lee tonight and I have 1958's Horror …

A Six-Pack of Horror Films on an October Sunday

I took yesterday as a college football/kid's flag football game day so you get a six-pack of my favorite horror films for today's blog entry. These six films are admittedly all over the place as far as genre, theme, and tone. But they are on the list for a reason. 85. They 2002 I don't …

Vampires and Mobsters, Throwback to 80s Horror and Hillbilly Justice

After last night's werewolf theme, it's back to mashing up the styles. If you can't tell already, I like horror films that dare to be different. Now, the genre-bending aside, if the film at least tries to adhere to the rules and mythology of the genre, I'm usually okay with it. I am a fan …

Billy Zane’s Best Work, the First Stephen King Adaptation to Make the List and Young Kelly Preston

If you have ever read any of my Favorite 100 Horror Films countdowns in the past, you'll find that some films slide up and down the scale, seemingly for no reason at times. Sometimes a newer or rediscovered movie slots in above. That's probably the case with these three. Turner Classic Movies has started their …

Newer Films with Potential and a Unique Take on Vampires

Last night I kicked off the reboot of My 100 Favorite Horror Films with a couple of Hammer Horror vampire classics and a newer film I like very much. Tonight, the countdown continues with two relatively new films and a movie that brought a unique perspective to vampire lore and stories. Different is the theme …

Well, I Warned You

"I bid you welcome." Anyone who knows me understands that my chosen forms of entertainment usually involve the macabre. I recently wrote a post for my official web site that described where the fascination with horror came from. It was a made for TV movie starring Jack Palance as Dracula. The first time I saw …
