The Month in Movies: Shocktober 2013

shocktober

My friends and I have been dedicating the month of October to the horror genre and calling it Shocktober for several years now.  I started this blog in February and from the start I was excited about sharing my Shocktober experience with anyone and everyone.

I have been saying for a while that this year has to make up for last year’s abysmal performance. I had it in my mind that I barely watched anything last year. As it turns out, I was 27 movies last year. Not all of them were Shocktober movies, but I had been working under the assumption that I had maybe 10 or 11 viewings total last year.

It’s all for the best because this year was the second best Shocktober I’ve ever had. While I didn’t beat my record of 57 viewings in 2011, I did come close with a very respectable 52 viewings. I’m also proud to say that only 3 of those viewings weren’t Shocktober movies. Continue reading

OV’s Shocktober: Halloween – 35th Anniversary [Blu-Ray Review]

20131017_185749

I picked up the Halloween: 35th Anniversary blu-ray a few weeks ago and was eager to jump into it and the features. In honor of Shocktober I thought I’d review it for anyone curious about whether they should upgrade their collection or enhance it with this horror movie classic for the first time.

The blu-ray comes in a booklet case with 20 pages stapled inside. The pages are filled with old photos from the movie and an essay written by Stef Hutchinson of the Halloween: 25 Years of Terror documentary.

Read on as I detail the release and the features within it. Let me know what you think of in the comments below and be sure to follow me around the internet.

The Obsessive Viewer Podcast – Ep 5 – FIRST CONTEST, Memorable Theater Experiences & Why We Love Movies

Click here to subscribe!

Here’s the latest episode of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast with Matt & Tiny! We recorded this in Tiny’s basement after I had worked all night and he had gotten an hour or two of sleep. So we were both tired and it didn’t help that it took us an hour to set up our new, cheap microphones.

But it was all worth it because I honestly think this is our best episode yet. It’s all about why we love movies as an art form and what it is about the movie theater that we love so much. As the title suggests, this episode also features the announcement for our FIRST EVER CONTEST! I’ve set up a page here, (up at the top) where you can submit your memorable movie theater stories to us. We’ll read the best ones, plug your site/podcast/project/general shout out.

Don’t forget, you can always send us questions, comments, topic suggestions, death threats etc. If there’s a movie or TV show you’d like to hear our take on, we’ll read your message on the podcast and let you know our thoughts.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the episode. Here are links to the two blogs I reference in the episode: Film Hipster & The Cinema Monster
