What're the chances we'll be getting another batch of spooky commentaries from the Beast coast this Halloween season? I absolutely loved last year's bunch and really hope it wasn't just a one-off thing.

Also, what Halloween-flavoured movies would you like to see the crew cover? Hypothetically, of course.

Sure, Army of Darkness counts; great shout, it has a little of everything.

Drag Me to Hell also has a great mix of horror and comedy. I'd love their reactions to the 'oh shit' moments in that one.

With Abby’s newfound love of Resident Evil maybe that first RE movie?

Haaaa. I almost made this exact thread yesterday, but decided to wait for a bit. I was also going to include my hopes for a new season of Fright or Shite Six Crazy Frights and suggestions for that.

As for serious flicks, I would like to see some icky movies like The Fly and Hellraiser. It Follows and maybe the first Nightmare on Elm Street too. The Descent and Poltergeist also spring to mind.

As for horror-comedies, I don't know if Abby has seen Ghostbusters yet. I'd love for an excuse to watch Little Shop of Horrors again as well, but I'm not sure if a musical is going to get any votes from them. Cabin In The Woods would be great, if none of them had seen it or heard of the twist. Army of Darkness would also get my vote, Evil Dead 2 probably too.

I think watching The Exorcist would be pretty cool.

Christine could actually be fun, what with them already having watched a couple of Carpenter flicks.

I guess we won't be getting spooked this year. Suppose I'll just watch Killer Klowns again!

...and the Beastcast has proven me wrong! There’ll be four spooky Film&40s happening this month, with The Gate starting things off on the upcoming friday, so start ordering those blu-rays.

Doesn't have to tie in to Halloween. How about a Christmas Film & 40s this year?

I'm worried about Abby's pick if she does go with The Exorcist. I'm not good with truly scary/horror movies. Everything last year was fine with me and I'm not sure if I can actually watch The Exorcist given it's reputation as a legitimately scary film.

@jjbsterling: I’d image the tension will be considerably lowered when you have the Beast crew talking in the background.

It’s been forever since I saw The Exorcist. I remember it more as a very moody piece, but I don’t generally get scared by horror movies. Looking forwards to it anyway.

I'm a pretty seasoned horror junkie, so take this with a grain of salt, but honestly? The Exorcist isn't that scary. It's unnerving, unsettling, and an excellent film all around, but its reputation is more than a little exaggerated.

I wasn't alive in the 70s but I bet back then it truly was quite horrifying. Obviously there was a bit of blatant marketing going on with the whole reporting of people fainting and vomiting at the cinemas though. Regardless I think it still holds up as an excellent movie, one of the all-time best and I'm excited to watch it again.

Not sure if the last two are on the right dates, but it seems we have these gems left.

  • 18th - Event Horizon (Alex)
  • 26th - The Exorcist (Abby)
  • 31st - House on Haunted Hill (the 1999 version) or Gremlins 2. (Dan)

Has it been decided between Gremlins 2 and House on Haunted Hill?

Haven't listened to the latest Beastcast yet, but I'd imagine they'll wait until next friday to reveal it. I haven't seen House on Haunted Hill in 19 years, but I'm going to guess that it won't hold up well (going to say it wasn't great to begin with)...which is kinda why I'm also curious to see it. Gremlins 2 would easily be a great pick, but I'm fine with either.
