Not entirely sure this counts, but an anime is about to drop that is based on "Night of the Living Dead". Already ordered my Blu.

Its already available online in high definition.
I don't really 'get into' anime (a few).
I'm really tired of Zombie movies and shows.
That cash cow has been beat to death.

I recently watched the Candy Man remake.
Personally, I found it pretty boring and had to rewatch the original to 'wash my head out'.

On the other hand, I am looking forward to watching Dune.
The bootleg cam copies are already available on the internet but I refuse to watch them (it ruins the movie).

Yes but first time on disc in Australia, outside a really weird animated version that was floating around eons ago. Am a Horror collector so always the disc versions. Actually quite excited by 4k, titles are starting to really role which gives a good reason to re-visit. The Thing is being released this month I think in this format.

Haven't really got into the Candy Man remake, the original is still very solid, Tony Todd is tha man!

The only thing I don't like is the casting of the lead character, dude looks far too pretty for the role. Also looking forward to this one.

Today (Oct1) begins my month of horror movies (Shocktober).
It culminates on the 31st with a binge watch of the entire 'Halloween' movie franchise.

Halloween Movie Series
*Halloween 1: Judith's Death (1978) ~ bluray jl curtis d pleasence n castle
*Halloween 1.1: Shape Returns (2018) n castle jl curtis j greer jj courtney

*Halloween 7: [H20] 20 years Later (1998) jl curtis c durand ll coolj a arkin

*Halloween R1: Escapes (2007) st compton m mcdowell t mane
*Halloween R2: Returns (2009) st compton m mcdowell t mane

*Halloween: 25 Years of Terror (2006) ~ docu pj soles i yablans

I'm hoping to have a copy of Halloween Kills by the 31st.
I added my own secondary title for the ones without one for titling consistency.

While some of the films I watch are not specifically genre horror all are horrific to me.
Plus, knowing me...I loves me sum monsters so this month is populated by lots of monster and creature features.

I'm also laid up this year from a recent major surgery. I start my movie playlists early in the morning and just let them play till I hit the bed at night. I nap during the lower quality ones and since it is all from my own collection, I've already seen them.

Many of the 'collection sets' I am playing have original and remakes. Usually back to back. Sometimes I prefer the original, sometimes I prefer the remake but its all according to my mood and how well I am paying attention.

While I have nearly all of Stephen King's movies I actually don't watch many of those.
I was reading awhile back they are remaking some of King's movies too.

I do play some Dario Argento films. Usually the sets but being groggy most of the time makes it hard to read the subtitles. Luckily, I've seen them and read them so basically, I know whats going on.

Two Argento sets I definitely watch are:

Argento's Animal Trilogy
*Bird With the Crystal Plumage (1970) t musante s kendall
*Four Flies on Grey Velvet (1971) ~ bluray m brandon m farmer
*The Cat o' Nine Tails (1971) j franciscus k malden c spaak

Argento's Three Mothers Set
*Inferno (1980) l mccloskey i miracle
*Mother of Tears (2007) a argento a james
*Suspiria (1977) j harper s casini
*Suspiria (2018) cg moretz t swinton

I actually like both Suspiria film but tend to lean toward the original.

I also must watch the Demoni Set

Demoni Set
*Demons 1: The Theater (1985) u barberini n hovey k zinny
*Demons 2: The Apartment (1986) de knight n brilli cc tassoni
*Demons 3: The Ogre (1988) v bryant s ferilli p malco
*Demons 4: The Church (1989) h quarshie t arana
*Demons 5.1: The Devil's Veil aka Mask of Satan (1990) g guidelli d caprioglio
*Demons 5.2: Black Demons (1991) kv hoven j balogh s curtis
*Demons 6.1: De Profundis aka The Black Cat (1989) f guerin u barberini
*Demons 6.2: The Devil's Daughter aka The Sect (1991) k curtis h lom
*Demons 7: Cemetary Man (1994) ~ bluray r everett a falchi

I collected the set according to IMdb's film connections but I do have trouble with the order of the films. Demons 6.1 seems out of place by date but from everything I've read, it is in the right position (go figure). The original is still my favorite.

I've recently started collecting Lovecraft sets. I have a lot of Lovecraft films as stand alone movies but I haven't attempted to build the sets yet.
I do have one set built and ready...

Lovecraft Set (Color Out of Space)
*Arkham Sanitarium: Soul Eater (2014) s brown
*Color From The Dark (2008) d rochon m segal m kay
*Color Out of Space (2019) n cage
*Curse 1: The Meteorite (1987) ~ bluray w wheaton c akins m danare
*Curse 2: The Bite (1989) j farr b svenson
*Curse 3: Panga aka Blood Sacrifice (1991) c lee h cele
*Curse 4: Catacombs (1988) ~ bluray tv patten j west
*Monster of Terror aka Die Monster Die (1965) b karloff n adams
*The Color Out of Space (2010) p dorsch

The next set I want to put together will be a Cthulhu set.

I recently acquired a new movie which creates a From Beyond Set and I already have some other sets by Lovecraft like Reanimator.

From Beyond Set
*From Beyond 1: Reality Warped (1986) ~ bluray j combs b crampton t sorel 6.5
*From Beyond 2: The Resonator - Miskatonic U (2021) a keener a woods a wyss m pare 5.0

ReAnimator Set
*ReAnimator 1: ReAgent (1985) ~ bluray j combs b abbott b crampton
*ReAnimator 2: Bride of the ReAnimator (1989) j combs b abbott ce jones
*ReAnimator 3: Beyond ReAnimator (2003) j combs td musset j barry

I'm not really into Troma Films. I do have some but hardly ever watch them unless someone is visiting and wants to see it.

I find religion based horror movies to be comical. I do watch some of them. Mainly demons and ghosts. I also like haunted and possession movies, they are a lot of fun.

There are only a few Zombie movies I can tolerate anymore. I guess I've seen too many bad ones. I watched Army of the Dead twice but couldn't do a third. I can watch the Zombieland set and Rekill but really gotta be in the mood for them.

Some of the other sets I do like to watch:

For most of these sets I only like the original film. I collect the entire sets for the sake of the set. Sometimes I watch the entire set tho.

I also have a lot of stand alone movies but I haven't put them on a notepad for posting yet.
I could take screenshots but that's not really an option because of resolution. (I like to keep my screenshots small)

I'm still in the process of building sets and sorting my custom genres. Plus, my labeling project requires me to look up each movie to find the actors and rating on IMdb.
Its a very slow process.

Right now, I have a few titles unzipped to watch. Still have many more to add and I've already watched a few.

Salem's Lot 2022​

A writer travels to a town where the people become vampires.
Ben Mears, a writer who spent part of his childhood in Jerusalem's Lot, Maine, also known as 'Salem's Lot, has returned after twenty-five years to write a book about the long-abandoned Marsten House, where he had a bad experience as a child. He soon discovers that an ancient evil has also come to town and its turning the residents into vampires. He vows to stop the plague of undead and save the town.

Writer Gary Dauberman told Den of Geek in June 2019 that his goal with the new version of Salem's Lot is to make vampires frightening again. He wants to get away from the sexier, more romanticized undead that have infested pop culture for much of the past quarter century, thanks to everything from Interview with the Vampire to Twilight to The Vampire Diaries.

This will be the second feature film adaptation of the novel. Previously, it was adapted for television: a 1979 mini series directed by Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist), a follow up in 1987 called A Return to Salem's Lot was created for the big screen, and another TV mini series in 2004.

Finally got around to Candyman 2021, not bad, they needed to deep six the political agenda, took me out of the movie. Look for a cameo from Todd towards the end of the movie.
