SHOCKtober: 554-534

Oh my child, we are still deep in ONE VOTE EACH territory.

553. Don't Look in the Basement -- 1973, S.F. Brownrigg
552. Don't Open the Door -- 2014, Danny Foxx

550. Dracula -- 1931, Tod Browning
549. Dracula A.D. 1972 -- 1972, Alan Gibson

545. Dust Devil: The Final Cut -- 1992, Richard Stanley

537. Final Destination 2 -- 2003, Davis R. Ellis
536. Final Destination 3 -- 2006, James Wong
535. Final Exam -- 1981, Jimmy Huston
534. The Food of the Gods -- 1976, Bert I. Gordon

Ugh, Food of the Gods would be a 100% perfect movie if it weren't for its use of real rats. I can't abide it! Real animals getting injured (at best) was too shocking and too much of a bummer the first (and only) time I've seen the film. Really sucks all the fun out of it for me. What a drag.

Man there's a lot of great advice in this little chunk o' list!  The basement? Don't look in there! The door? Don't open it! Sleep? Don't go to there! I'm hoping we saved some lives today.

Also: Eden Lake has got to be one of the most obnoxiously anti-working class films to ever be regurgitated by the British film industry. Nasty and mean-spirited ending too.

EDEN LAKE was one of the brief trend in 'chav horror'. Michael Caine's HARRY BROWN may have kicked it off.

Oh God, I love Empire of the Ants.

I still haven't seen EMPIRE! It's hard for me to believe that there's a movie featuring Joan Collins battling giant ants and I haven't married it yet!

Aw, last time I voted for Feast, but left it off this time. Whomever gave it that lone vote, know that it made my honorable mentions!
