31 Days of Halloween – Day 19 – Pathology (2008)

Peter Petrelli from Heroes (Milo Ventimiglia) stars in this gruesome tale of student pathologists who start a deadly game between them, trying to nail the perfect, unguessable murder. It's a neat premise and pretty grisly. Milo's lead character Teddy gets taken in by Dr Jake Gallo (Michael Weston) - invited into the central clique and … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween – Day 19 – Pathology (2008)

31 Days of Halloween – Day 18 – The Greasy Strangler (2016)

Where do we start! The Greasy Strangler is like nothing you've ever seen before. Well, it's a bit John Waters. It's a bit Napoleon Dynamite. It's a bit porno. Main character Big Ronnie (Michael St. Michaels is JUST fabulous) spends most of the time naked, with a huge (and we mean HUGE) prosthetic penis. Our … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween – Day 18 – The Greasy Strangler (2016)

31 Days of Halloween – Day 15 – House on Haunted Hill (1999)

It's another remake on the Halloween watch - this time of the 1959 film of the same name, with Geoffrey Rush playing amusement park mogul Steven Price (a nod to the similar main character of Frederick Loren, played by Vincent Price in the original) who invites five strangers to his wife's birthday party at an … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween – Day 15 – House on Haunted Hill (1999)

31 Days of Halloween – Day 13 – Freddy vs. Jason (2003)

You know the saying that two beautiful people often have an ugly baby? That's kind of like Freddy vs. Jason - two horror maestros give birth to a really awful film. This should be a clash of the titans. It's just a snorefest. We start off with Freddy (Robert Englund) redundant in Springwood, and forgotten … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween – Day 13 – Freddy vs. Jason (2003)

31 Days of Halloween – Day 12 – Hostel (2005)

With the second appearance of Eli Roth in our 31 Days of Halloween October listings, Hostel is a splattertastic inclusion which still terrifies on multiple viewings. Three American college students are enticed to a hostel in Slovakia, with the promise of beautiful women by a fellow traveller (or so they think). They're thrown into the … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween – Day 12 – Hostel (2005)

31 Days of Halloween – Day 10 – Ghostbusters (1984)

We got one! Ivan Reitman's classic is the perfect Halloween view, with a huge dose of nostalgic ectoplasm. Nothing can touch the wit and comradery of our heroes Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (we miss you Harold Ramis) and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson). Throw in our beloved Slimer and Mr … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween – Day 10 – Ghostbusters (1984)
