2nd October

I got to be honest here, I aint doing so well in the #31NightsOfHorror

Second day in and I'm watching 'Dracula' again, but with a commentary. Yeah geeks like commentaries, and if you think you are a geek and don't listen to commentaries than you aint one... ok that's a lie, but you aint a geek like me.

Geek Like Me.. there must be a song called that somewhere on the TubeofYou right?

I started off todays viewing with 'Road to Dracula' off of the DVD, but if you don't have it, I found it online here. I love behind the scenes, interviews, documentaries on movies. I especially love commentaries and documentaries years and years after a movie has been made, I think more stories and history comes to light in a retrospective. Perhaps time makes the people involved more honest.

And my 3rd film will most likely be another Dracula movie in this DVD set.

As for actually watching a horror on a night in October, tonight aint the night either. I'm at work til Midnight. I'll try and get one in after work but I'm straight back in tomorrow morning and I do need to sleep. Gone are the days of Uni where I whacked out 217 movies in October back in 2008 or 163 in 2009. Damn life getting in the way of movie viewing. *shakes fist*

I would like to get through 100 this year, but I'm most likely gonna watch 50. Lets see how I go...

October 1st

I started the day off at 7.30am with 'Dracula' (1931) and now its late and I'm in from work, I fear that will be my only Horror for the 1st of October. Why? Did you see all the shows on from Sunday I gotta catch up on?



The Mentalist

Boardwalk Empire

Robot Chicken

The Simpsons

Bobs Burgers

Family Guy

American Dad

This does not leave time for Horror Movies. Although I tried to make up for it by listening to the 'Now Playing' Podcast on the way to and from work. I got through the 'The House of 1000 Corpses' and 'Devils Rejects' shows.

If you have stumbled upon this then I suspect you have already seen 'Dracula' and also know its a total 6 on the shempy meter. It's a classic, Bela is my personal favorite Dracula actor. I love Dwight Frye as Renfield. He makes the movie for me, sure Bela Lugosi is fantastic but its Dwight Frye who gets my personal nod of awesomeness. I'm looking forward to my viewing this month of 'Frankenstein' just for his portrayal of the character 'Fritz'. Yeah I'll be making my way through some of the Universal Monster movies before anything else.
