150 Days of Halloween

Hey everyone! I finished my schedule of horror films, here are 150 days of my life as defined by the horror movie I will watch and then blurb about after the fact.

Jun. 04 - I Saw the Devil (Was amazing.)
Jun. 05 - Let me In (Not very good, especially when compared to the original.)
Jun. 06 - The Lost Boys (Goofy good time from the 80's.)
Jun. 07 - The Descent (One of the best monster movies since Alien.)
Jun. 08 - Martyrs (A truly grim and uncomfortable movie, yet masterfully made.)
Jun. 09 - Inside (A derivative movie that fails to capitalize on its unique aspect.)
Jun. 10 - Stay Alive (Laughably bad, but fun to watch with friends or drunk.)
Jun. 11 - Last House on the Left (Better then the original version.)
Jun. 12 - Hobo With A Shotgun (My new favorite movie, a bloody good time.)
Jun. 13 - Ravenous (An interesting dark comedy that goes in unique directions)
Jun. 14 - Eyes without a Face (A haunting movie, both beautiful and dreary)
Jun. 15 - Night of the Living Dead (The Zombie movie that started it all.)
Jun. 16 - Deadgirl (A flawed but interesting morality tale/coming of age story)
Jun. 17 - Die You Zombie Bastards! (What is this I don't even...)
Jun. 18 - The Hole (A fun horror movie for kids.)
Jun. 19 - A Tale of Two Sisters (Incredible movie. Tense, mysterious, and creepy)
Jun. 20 - Cabin Fever (A love letter to the genre, its a bloody good time.)
Jun. 21 - The Dunwich Horror (A typical terrible B-Movie from the 70's.)
Jun. 22 - The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (Not really a horror movie, but still good.)
Jun. 23 - The Cremator (A surreal and morbid dark comedy.)
Jun. 24 - The Phantom Carriage (The best silent film I have ever seen.)
Jun. 25 - Dead of Night (A fun collection of tales about the supernatural.)
