Watched the original BLACK CHRISTMAS again last night. A good horror flick but not on the level of a HALLOWEEN IMO. I understand it has a very big following but it doesn't do it for me the way HALLOWEEN or some of the other legendary horror films do. I do, however, dig the Christmas Slasher genre and wouldn't mind seeing more of them.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the following are the most anticipated horror movies of the fall (in order):

Fall’s Most Anticipated Horror Movies:
Halloween (October 19)
The Predator (September 14)
The Nun (September 7)
Suspiria (November 2)
Overlord (November 9)

My own personal rank would be SUSPIRIA, HALLOWEEN, THE NUN, THE PREDATOR, OVERLORD.

Speaking of SUSPIRIA, director Luca Guadagnino has stated he already has plans for sequels if this proves to be successful. He would continue the Argento Mother's Trilogy and make movies based around Mother Tenebrarum and Mother Lachrymarum. I'd be down for this as I felt INFERNO was a decent follow-up to SUSPIRIA but I was not a fan of THE MOTHER OF TEARS. Hopefully SUSPIRIA delivers it in a few weeks!

Finally checked out Terrifier on Netflix. I enjoyed the beginning and the character of Art the Clown, but the rest was thoroughly underwhelming. I understand lots of people enjoyed it as a gory throwback, but it barely had enough plot to keep me from falling asleep.

Also finally saw Upgrade, which was a thoroughly fun watch until then end when it turned into a straight action movie halfway through the third act. Definitely worth a watch, however.

I had been hearing positive things too about it which has me looking forward to seeing this. However, I heard SUSPIRIA was supposed to be screened too and I haven't heard anything about it. Have you?

In horror tv news, they are filming for the new AMC show based on Joe Hill's NOS4A2 today and next week in my hometown. I'll try to get some pics if I can get around there.

:clap: Thanks for the link. Disappointed in that more reviews weren't more positive. However, Tarantino loved it and usually anything he likes I know I will too so I'm holding out hope I'll enjoy it as the original is near and dear to my heart.

Mandy is pretty great. Highly recommend checking it out in a theater if you can. Or anywhere big and loud.

Definitely not a gauge to follow, usually industry folks won't speak out like that.

Watched Hellraiser I and II tonight; still one of the best one-two punches in horror. For me, right up there with Halloween I and II as well as Friday I and II.

Anyone else prepping for 31 in 31? We're working on a list this weekend.
I think the toughest part is trying to balance types of films as well as striking the right balance between old favorites and things we've never seen before.

About halfway through our list. Going to be good I hope. Last year was phenomenal. Tried mixing in some shorts and going to do the same this year.
