We all know it's a fantastic slice of classic horror with a vicious streak of humour running through it, great effects work, See You Next Wednesday, etc, etc, etc.

However unlike J's association with The Evil Dead, that i don't see. The Evil Dead is slapstick comedy with demons. There's nobody in AAWIL who gurns and pulls faces like Campbell does in those films and not once have i ever thought of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre as a horror comedy.

It's sequels maybe but not the original, no way.

People will be saying The Exorcist just takes the piss next. ;)

However my review has brought up discussion so that's cool.

I was reading an article about Edgar Wright and Return of the Living Dead that made me think of this discussion. When creating Shaun of the Dead, Wright and Simon looked at the template of An American Werewolf in London and decided that, like in John Landis's film, "The threat is real. But we happen to be following two characters who are funny.Ē.

The whole piece is worth a read.

I have my 30 unseen list done and may I say the vast majority look quite questionable :lol:

Good looking list there Justin. I need to try and figure out what I be watching this year.

Excellent pile of films there, Justin. Are they all new to you Blu's or have you watched some of them before?

Justin101 19th September 2022 02:36 PM

Around half of them will be first time watches for me. No doubt Iíll be adding some more if there are some Halloween sales coming up :)

I've had the 'new to me' Blu-rays and dvd's in a pile a while so i'm not tempted to watch one. So here they are.

The only films i've actually never seen before are The Werewolf, Frankenstein the True Story and Blood Bath so i might have a browse early next month to see if there's anything else.

I'll also be watching the usual Halloween related movies that i tend to go through such as House of 1000 Corpses, Trick r' Treat etc and of course the actual Halloween films themselves. No doubt some classic Hammer as well.

I should add that Frankenstein the True Story was also in last years to watch Halloween pile. :o

Thatís an excellent set of films to pick from! Weíre all going to be having a whale of time while Nordy is watching the dregs of the internet and thinking about his life choices lol.

Forgot about Trick r Treat, thatís one of my more recent traditions as it took me a few viewings to love it but now itís a firm favourite. Thatíll be Halloween night with H4.

Which if i do i'd probably end up putting them in my Decemberdike drawer instead seeing as they are all 'new to me' films.

October and Halloween is more comfort viewing than discovering new stuff for me.

Edit - I'd forgotten i'd got that Arrow Gothic horror box set preordered. Some of those i've never seen before. Nice!

Thank you.

I might try and get Quatermass and the Pit watched at the end of September and pretend it's sci-fi not horror...which it probably is actually.

Haha! Poor Nordy. :whip:

Where on earth did you get that Halloween 4 from. That's long deleted.
