    Falling a little behind...
    4. Tigers Are Not Afraid (2017)
    Shudder

    Among the best movies I have seen this year. Should be a crime that it did not get a wide release and it took so long to hit a streaming service.

    As for the film, it is as if The Devil's Backbone was set during the Mexican Drug War. I will leave it at that.

    5. Prevenge (2017)
    Shudder

    It was ok.
    Dead Bodies: 6
    Slashed Throats: 2
    Testicular Stabbing
    Eye Stabbed

    6. The Furies
    Shudder

    Pretty meh. A lot of good gore gags in case you want to shut your brain off.
    Dead Bodies: 10
    Scythe to Gut
    Axe to Face
    Axe to Back
    Old Timey Hand Drill
    Knife to Hand
    Arm Ripped Jax Fatality
    Throat Slit
    Exploded Heads: 3
    Machete to Neck
    Eyeballs Pulled: 2
    Fingers Lopped Off

    7. Prom Night (1980)
    Shudder

    After Prevenge and The Furies it was time to go back to a 80s slasher. (Aka a palette cleanser)
    Dead Bodies: 6
    Stunt Actor on Fire
    Neck Stabbing
    Throat Slashing
    Decapitation
    Motor Vehicle Crash and Burn
    Excessive Disco and Disco Dancing

    8. Hell House LLC 3: Lake of Fire (2019)
    Shudder

    The 1st one was a decent cheaply made found footage flick set in a haunted attraction. It reminded me of the 10 years I spent helping run a haunted house.

    This one and the 2nd one are not very good at all. Will never get that time back. Ever.

    Last night I watched Netflix's Stephen King adaptation from a couple years ago, 1922. It was very bad. Boring as shit.

    The new one In the Tall Grass also sucks.

    Is Trick r Treat (2007) worth watching?

    How much gore does it have? No issue for me, just seeing if I can force the wife to watch.

    Sticking with Netflix...

    The Open House is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Nonsensical throughout with an even dumber ending.

    The Babysitter - campy and fun. I dug it. Samara Weaving and the rest of the adult cast are a riot.

    No. I did not take a legal pad into a movie theater like some sort of asshole.

    16. Train to Busan (2016

    Fucking awesome. Put off watching this one for far too long. Highly recommended.

    Since I fell behind, it looks like most of this week will be double features.

    Last night's theme was Pigs for some reason.

    20. Slaughterhouse (1987)
    Vinegar Syndrome Blu-Ray

    Decent slasher. Not as bonkers as Mausoleum, but weird enough for Vinegar Syndrome.

    Linnea Quigley double feature. Hal Havins is in both movies too, but fuck that guy.

    22. Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988)
    Shudder

    Started it off nice and sleazy. The significant other refused to watch this one or answer any questions regarding sorority initiations. So no idea if spanking or breaking into bowling alleys in order to steal a trophy is common place.
    Dead Bodies: 8
    Puke: 2
    Sorority Initiation
    Initiate Named Taffy
    Mischievous Wish Granting Imp Trapped in Bowling Trophy

    23. Night of the Demons (1988)

    Haven't seen this one in at least a couple decades. Remember watching it on a VHS rental at a friend's house.

    Multiple Stunt Actors on Fire
    Barb Wire Climbing
    Burn to Leg
    Sunrise Demon Smoke Death
    Razor Blade Apple Pie

    Originally, I planned to make this a Demon Double Feature, started off with the Vinegar Syndrome disc of Demon Wind. Then decided watching Demon Wind, again, was not worth it. Tagging lurchingbeast to point out something embarrassing Stephen Quadros did was much more preferable.

    Just watched it. Wasn't bad. Decent gore. Surprised it did not see a theatrical run as it can't possibly be worse than Countdown. (Death. There Is An App For That.)

    I watched it on Friday night while the wife was at soccer (good call). Lots of fun, very enjoyable, though not all of it made total sense, but my quibbles are minor.

    24. Maniac Cop 2 (1990)
    Blue Underground Blu-Ray

    Originally conceived as a dual sequel to both Maniac (1980) and Maniac Cop. Unfortunately, Joe Spinell died prior to filming and was replaced by the EMT from Halloween 2 that sings the song about "Grace sit on my face".

    Joe Spinell was an interesting character actor with credits in The Godfather 1 & 2, and Rocky. There is a really good video circulating online where Spinell attends a Jaws Oscar nomination party at Spielberg's house. After Jaws gets hosed, Spinell looks into the camera and says, "Who the fuck do they think made the picture? The shark?". I only bring this up to insinuate the guy that directed ET probably watched Maniac in support of a friend.

    Maniac Cop 2 is carnage all the way and a good fucking time. Trash of the highest order.

    The next 4 movies were a quadruple feature, 7hr, marathon at my local Alamo Drafthouse called Dismember the Alamo. All are mystery features announced prior to each movie and were supplied by the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA). AGFA has put out dvds of some oddball cheapies like Ninja Zombie.

    26. Truth or Dare: A Critical Madness (1986)

    Not sure how this hasn't been mentioned in the so bad it is good movie circles. Collective groans all about. The crowd got more lively when the lead went on a murder rampage. Biggest laugh was when a stroller got run down.

    The Dismember the Alamo event in Denver featured Psycho, Poltergeist, The Shining, and Doctor Sleep. After Truth or Dare: A Critical Madness, I can't help but feel the local curator wanted to tell us all to go fuck ourselves. I love trash and bad movies, but fuck this movie. Wish I broke my sobriety. I have seen Truth or Dare: A Critical Madness as many times as I have seen Citizen Cane. For whatever that is worth.

    27. Basket Case (1982)

    Classic drive-in and grindhouse movie. A good time was had by all.

    28. Society (1989)

    Well wow. I've watched this numerous times. Much different with an audience. Felt dirty.

    29. Centipede Horror (1982)

    Never heard of it. Was better than Truth or Dare: A Critical Madness. I never knew centipedes were such a menace to south east Asia. I don't want to say it was weird, but there was a lengthy long distance Kung Fu magic fight.

    Criterion Blu-ray

    31. Dawn of the Dead (1978)

    Finished up with these 2. Both highly recommended and I don't think I need to sell them any further.
