Raven's Horror Movie Suggestions

It's that time again. To start contemplating your October movie viewing schedule. To help you out this year, I thought I would share some of my favorites. 

I'm a die-hard 'B' movie cult classic buff and live for the days of horror movies done in B&W. 

Ready to scream?  

  1. Satanic Rites of Dracula circa 1973 with two of the "Masters of Horror" Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. While campy with the cinematography, it is still a great movie to get fans into the horror genre gently. 
  2. Salem's Lot circa 1979. The original adaptation from one of my heroes 'Stephen King'. Starring a then hit lister David Soul and the ever stoic and creepy James Mason. Creepy, eerie and the start to a long gloriously gruesome marriage between fiction and film. 
  3. When A Stranger Calls circa 1979. Forget the wimpy remake and settle into this classic movie that makes any babysitter leery of a new job.  Starring Charles Durning and Carol Kane, the babysitter finds herself in deep trouble when she is asked 'Have you checked the children'
  4. Halloween 3 Season of The Witch circa 1982.  Forget Mike Myers, Dan O'Herlihy's portrayal of Conal Cochran will send anyone screaming from the room. This ghastly film incorporates the joy of halloween costumes with the grisly demonic overlord wanting to take over the world. John Carpenter is stellar in his direction of this classic.
  5. The Fog circa 1980. John Carpenter is again awesome in his direction of this spooky little movie. Starring Andrienne Barbeau (the mother of all horror actresses) and a little known star Jamie Lee Curtis. The movie is crisp, action packed and leaves your fingernails bleeding from gripping fear. 
  6. The Andromeda Strain circa 2008. While the original starring Dan Hill is phenomenal, the remake has the high tech special effects edge that makes it top notch. Starring the sexy Benjamin Bratt, Rick Schoeder and Eric McCormick.  An alien virus quickly starts to spread through rural middle America and it is up to the elite scientific team led by Bratt to find a cure to the mysterious deadly disease. Out of the brilliant mind of Michael Crichton, this is one movie (tv mini-series) not to pass up.
