577. Christine -- 1983, John Carpenter
576. City of the Living Dead -- 1980, Lucio Fulci

Cherry Falls! It's pretty alright and finally available here in the US. I love that it flipped the standard slasher trope around (here, it's the virgins getting killed so kids are in a mad rush to have sex) and it stars Brittany Murphy, so how can you go wrong? You cannot.

I'd never heard of Cargo before this, and I think it looks just swell. I'm a sucker for space-flavored horror, so I'm gonna have to check it out. Wow, SHOCKtober 2017 is already worth it!

I always forget that Christine is a John Carpenter movie.

Tune in tomorrow! Maybe I will drop another absolutely fascinating piece of trivia like "I always forget that Christine is a John Carpenter movie"!

Where's our reboot/origin story movie on the chaffeur from Burnt Offerings, who is easily the only thing that kept that movie from being buried in the sands of time.

I need to watch BURNT OFFERINGS again. I want to like it more than I actually do, but then it's been a good long while since I've given it a try.

It's really not enjoyable to watch as an adult. It's achingly bad, really. But the chaffeur & house-molting scenes are a great few minutes of creepiness. Creepy enough to not watch before bedsies.

I get that I'm the only nutbar who likes Blue Sunshine, but Blood and Black Lace? Definitely worth checking out!
