WICKED WEDNESDAY: 100 HORROR FILMS IN 92 DAYS, WRAP-UP #2

Another month, and another 36 films were watched for the “100 Horror Movies in 92 Days“ challenge! I’m slowly crawling towards that 100 mark. Will I make it? Probably not! Will I keep trying? Sure will!

Since arriving in Texas a few weeks back, I haven’t watched many movies. Granted, I’ve seen My Little Pony: A New Generation about fifty times, but I’m not sure that fits the parameters for this challenge.

But it’s been nice not to watching movies for a bit. Shocking, I know. I felt like the challenge was making all the movies blend into one. That being said, writing up this list made me realise I watched a lot of very good movies in September.

Still didn’t watch any Asia horror this month, but I have a lot on the docket for when I return to the UK. There are lots of new favourites here – especially within the found-footage subgenre. Finally got around to watching a lot of the cornerstones. I continue to out myself as someone who always puts off watching the modern classics!

Films #36-72

36 Crawl (2019) dir. by Alexandre Aja

37 The Chill Factor (1993) dir. by Christopher Webster

38 Cuadecuc, vampir (1971) dir. by Pere Portabella

39 The Bloodstained Butterfly (Una farfalla con le ali insanguinate) (1971) dir. by Duccio Tessari

I was put off by Arrow’s hideous alternate artwork for this release. But I’m so happy I finally watched this, as this has to be one of the best gialli I have ever seen. Beautiful with a great, twisting plot.

40 Primeval (2007) dir. by Michael Katleman

41 Scare Package (2019) dir. by Noah Segan, Emily Hagins, Baron Vaughn, Aaron B. Koontz, Chris McInroy, Anthony Cousins, Hillary Andujar, Courtney Andujar

44 Creep (2014) dir. by Patrick Brice

45 Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood (1973) dir. by Christopher Speeth

48 Whoever Slew Auntie Roo? (1972) dir. by Curtis Harrington

49 Prom Night (2008) dir. by Nelson McCormick

50 Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker (1981) dir. by William Asher

A bizarre, queer horror story that completely took my by surprise! An incestuous aunt, a fake homosexual love triangle and in over-the-top corrupt cop. It’s like it the script was written by Stefon. *But actually, this is very, very good.

51 Monstrosity (1963) dir. by Joseph V. Mascelli

52 Mass Hysteria (2019) dir. by Jeff Ryan, Arielle Cimino

53 Lake Michigan Monster (2018) dir. by Ryland Brickson Cole Tews

54 Creep 2 (2017) dir. by Patrick Brice

A rare beast: a found-footage sequel worthy of its predecessor!

55 The Descent (2005) dir. by Neil Marshall

56 Malignant (2021) dir. by James Wan

My god. I LOVED this beauty. I cannot wait to watch it again! This is going to be a new favourite. An incredible final act unlike anything I have seen made by a major studio in the last thirty years (if ever).

57 Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984) dir. by Ray Cameron

58 Dead Silence (2007) dir. by James Wan

59 Parents (1989) dir. by Bob Balaban

68 The Bat (1959) dir. by Crane Wilbur

69 [REC] (2007) dir. by Jaume Balagueró, Paco Plaza

I hate myself for not watching this earlier. What a masterpiece in the genre! One of the few movies I’ve watched for this that truly scared me – seemingly a rare feat these days.

70 Bluebeard (1944) dir. by Edgar G. Ulmer

71 The Unholy (2021) dir. by Evan Spiliotopoulos

72 The Mini-Munsters (1973) dir. by Gerard Baldwin
