And so I come to the end of my 31 day Halloween horror re-watch challenge and somehow I managed to do it without skipping a day. And of course there's only one movie that can finish such a run:

Horror re-watch day 29:



Except that I made the in hindsight silly decision to watch the alternate version:



Which basically turns the gothic horror movie into a poor man's Exorcist. Was far from my favourite Mario Bava to begin with but the rehash turned it into total crap. It's basically a completely different movie.

I liked it but I don't know much about Lovecraft's work so I can't speak on if it's a good adaptation or not.

Actually a giallo, but could easily also be called a slasher.

I love the stupid over-the-top shoot-ups in this movie. It's one of those ones where you disengage your brain and just enjoy the action. The female star Sondra Locke was actually Clint Eastwood's missus, and a reasonably notable actress in her own right. This was originally going to star Steve McQueen and Barbra Streisand, which would have been awful!

Horror re-watches, days 25 & 26:




Both of these were better on the second viewing, though with the case of Us it's more because I wasn't half asleep this time around. Mandy genuinely improved on the second go around. 

One more unrelated re-watch:



The first time I saw this the quality was poor and I was forced to watch it through my PC. This time I was able to see it in HD with decent subtitling and on an actual TV screen. It was a much more enjoyable experience that way. 

New films watched:



Very average but watchable Viking movie. 



Another missing classic down. Really enjoyed it. For years I thought this was more family friendly than it actually is for some reason. 



I find Randolph westerns hit and miss, but I liked this one. Surprised by its general lower rating. 



Good Eastwood action movie, stretches plausibility hell of a lot though.

Another missing classic finally seen. 

Also not long seen this for the first time. The ending seemed like it was a bit "We're out of ideas. How the hell do we end this thing?"

Funny, the further into this I got my exact thoughts were 'how the hell will this end?'
