Movie 16 - Night of the Dribbler
So... Look at that. Like, it couldn’t be THAT bad, right? I mean, it’s obviously a bad movie, but how bad could it be? I had to stop watching after 15 minutes and just give up. This movie DEFEATED me. I’m a man who sat through Transformers 3 in theaters. I made it all the way through Actium Maximus and kind of liked it! There’s a reason this movie went unreleased for almost 20 years. Beware! Bewarrrreeeee!
Movie 16 - The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1977)
This is one of those movies I had meant to watch for years now, but just never got around to until now. I’ve always been fascinated by the killings that occurred in Texarkana in 1946, so I’ve been curious how you make a movie based on them. It’s... different. This wasn’t a bad movie, but felt like two entirely different movies kind of shoved into one another like a turducken. One half of the movie is a very dry clinical cop drama that feels like a reenactment from City Confidential at times with very badly done comedy thrown in. The other half is a pretty tense and downright disturbing slasher movie that had me on the edge of my seat at times. FYI, this was done by the Boggy Creek guy, which explains some of the “humor” in it.
Movie 18 - Jaws
What can I say about this one? Jaws will probably remain my all time favorite horror movie. It doesn’t have the gore or constant scares of other films, but it makes up for it with amazing characters, directing, and a great constant dread that pervades the entire film. I watch this a couple of times a year, and always squeeze it in around Halloween. I kind of want to watch it right now again.
Movie 19 - WNUF Halloween Special
This was probably the 3rd or 4th time I’ve watched this movie, and that’s mostly because I kind of enjoy it a little more each time I catch it. I wouldn’t say I love it, but it’s amazing what was done with a non-existent budget, and the build up to the end is handled pretty damn well. I still don’t much care for the ending, since it kind of destroys my suspension of disbelief a bit too much (much like Creep), but I kind of dig this one now.
Movie 20 - The Night Watchmen (slight NSFW trailer)
I just randomly went with this one on Prime the other week, and I surprisingly enjoyed it. A pretty good horror comedy starring a former player of the basesballs in the lead role. It goes for lame “shock” or juvenile humor a few times that don’t work out, but not bad overall. As someone who’s in charge of security for a building, it actually gets some of that right. Well, except for the vampires.
