Week 3 - Horror Fest

Children of the Corn 666: Isaac's Return 
As I mentioned last week, I loved the original Children of the Corn movie starring John Franklin.  This sequel stars a much older John Franklin.  Isaac was kept alive in a coma for 19 years. When he finally awakens he gathers the children of the original children.  Actually not a bad remake.  Stephen King had nothing to do with this other than the original character of Isaac and the story-line.  3.5 out of 5

Let Me In
This is the American version of Let The Right One In.  A young boy meets a new neighbor, but he is not at all what he expected.  Pretty creepy movie.  3.5 out of 5

The Children
This was a super-creepy movie.  Friends go away for Christmas holiday with their kids.  A secluded cabin in the woods is nice, that is until the children come down with a mysterious illness that causes them to become psychotic.  3.75 out of 5

Black Room 
Boris Karloff stars in this classic film as brothers Gregor and Anton.  Twin son's of a well liked Barron who tries to prevent a prophecy of having one brother kill the other.  Gregor is the eldest, therefore, becomes the next Barron when the father dies, but he is not as beloved as his father.  3.5 out of 5

The Man They Couldn't Hang  
Boris Karloff stars in this classic film as a Doctor who has discovered a way to bring the dead back to life.  However, before he could finish his experiment, he is arrested for murder.  He is tried and hanged for his crime.  That is when the story gets interesting.  3.75 out of 5

I've watched 7 Classic Horror Movies this far.  I'll probably end up watching about 10 of them.  Not so bad.  I did want to watch nothing but classic horror, but there are just too many movies to watch.  I will never be able to watch them all.  Once October is over, I will delete the unwatched movies from my DVR.
