2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 18: The Aldebaran Mystery (2010)

Day 18 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is Psychotronic Documentaries: The real authority on the occult, ufos, ghost hunters, conspiracy theories etc. They're all real, accurate and true, right? After a week of documentaries, I had to go deep and find something truly off. And guess what? I succeeded. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtAD90C6mEM This film promises so much.… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 18: The Aldebaran Mystery (2010)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 17: Jennifer’s Body (2009)

Day 17 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is 17. Die Laughing. "Hello?" "I don't think comedy belongs in horror." "You got the wrong number, pal." I've picked a movie that got a bad rap when it came out but time seems to have been kinder to, Jennifer's Body. I missed it on the first go-round, so… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 17: Jennifer’s Body (2009)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 14: The Four of the Apocalypse…(1975)

Day 14 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is Westerns. Hats and boots are a must on this trail, y'all. Yeehaw! I chose Lucio Fulci's Four of the Apocalypse..., which was made years before he became known as the Godfather of Gore. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebT4Ygr-oJI Salt Flats, Utah. 1873. Professional gambler Stubby Preston (Fabio Testi, Contraband) is arrested the moment… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 14: The Four of the Apocalypse…(1975)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 13: Black Sunday (1960)

Day 13 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is And on the 13th Day There Was Only Black and White. Greyscale is also acceptable. There was no choice for me other than the master's finest work: Mario Bava's seminal Black Sunday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q5nV12AgVc This was Bava's directorial debut -- although he had already directed several scenes without credit in… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 13: Black Sunday (1960)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 12: The Children (1980)

Day 12 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is Too Soon: Kids 12 or less meet an early demise. Geez, grim. Who Could Kill a Child seems like a pick that everyone would pull out, so I decided to go 80's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NusR2Syokag The best thing that I can say about this movie is that nearly every person… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 12: The Children (1980)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 11: Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight (1995)

Day 11 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is 11. That Soundtrack Though. One where the soundtrack is more impressive than the movie itself. And while I really love Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight, I can also admit that I think the soundtrack is way better than the movie it plays during. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cT5Cg8H7ec Unlike the HBO… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 11: Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight (1995)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 10: The Sound of Horror (1964)

Day 10 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is Unhead Until...It's too late! Your last second will be your loudest. We're looking for the quietest non-silent movie or one where the enemy hunts by sound. It seemed like most people would just pick A Quiet Place and since I've been using this month to discover new movies, I… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 10: The Sound of Horror (1964)
