Dreamlogic’s Halloween Horrors 2009
Posted on October 31, 2009 by Chris Nelson
We’re back, with our list of 13 horror film recommendations for Halloween. We’re a bit late this year, but at least we didn’t completely miss out like last :D. As always, feel free to post your own recommendations, and be sure to review our old lists as well (2007, 2006, 2005).
One of our favorite films of the year, and one of the best “haunted” spaceship films ever. We’re buying this on DVD as soon as it comes out. It’s that good.
Trick ‘r Treat
A darkly comedic horror anthology that ranks with the best. Amazing this one didn’t make it to theaters.
We like Coppola’s version, and a number of the Hammer ones, but this one probably edges out the rest. Awesome gothic atmosphere and set design by Edward Gorey. Frank Langella isn’t half bad as Drac either.
Nothing’s as scary as a weekend away with your co-workers, except a weekend away with your co-workers and a murderous psycho. Read our review.
Voodoo, models, murders, and assorted mayhem. A fun thriller with a taste for the macabre. Read our review.
Cult classic from the 90′s. Christopher Walken as an evil Gabriel. I think my friend and I were two of only six people that saw this in the theater.
Vagina Dentata! This one’s funny, gross, and heartwarming at the same time. Great little flick. Read our review.
Prince of Darkness, The
I haven’t put Carpenter on here in a while, but this is one of his best flicks.
A guilty pleasure from Chris’s childhood. Not really scary, but still fun.
Eko Eko Azarak — Wizard of Darkness
Like a Japanese Teen Witch, but without the rapping. And Demons. And face-melting. And lesbian schoolgirls. Okay, it’s not like Teen Witch at all.
Lord of Illusions
Scott Bakula and Famke Janssen before Enterprise and Nip Tuck ruined their careers. One of Clive Barker’s best.
This is one of the absolute dumbest movies ever, but you should see it just to say you have. Dario Argento directs Jennifer Connelly and a razor-blade wielding monkey in a heartwarming tale of psychic terror.
This movie’s better than it has any right to be, though I can’t vouch for any of its three sequels. Check it out.
Serpent and the Rainbow
Our +1. Sure, a repeat, but this film rocks the socks.
That’s it for this year. Have a Happy Halloween!
