Announcing the 2nd Annual Horrific October!

Yep, it’s that time again. Time for me to completely lose all control and give in to my wild desires of only watching horror films. Last year was a blast, and even though I’m more pressed for time these days, I’m gonna do my best to make this year just as awesome. I’m dividing my efforts into three main categories this year, which are:

Classic Japanese Horror

Featuring:

The Ghost of Yotsuya [Tôkaidô Yotsuya Kaidan] (1959)
dir. Nobuo Nakagawa

Jigoku [The Sinners of Hell] (1960)
dir. Nobuo Nakagawa

Onibaba (1964)
dir. Kaneto Shindō

Kuroneko [Yabu no naka no kuroneko] (1968)
dir. Kaneto Shindō

Full Moon Films

Featuring:

Vampire Journals (1997)
dir. Ted Nicolaou

Subspecies 4: Bloodstorm (1998)
dir. Ted Nicolaou

Parasite (1982)
dir. Charles Band

Castle Freak (1995)
dir. Stuart Gordon

Hammer Horror

Featuring:

The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)
dir. Terence Fisher

Dracula [Horror of Dracula] (1958)
dir. Terence Fisher

The Mummy (1959)
dir. Terence Fisher

The Curse of the Werewolf (1961)
dir. Terence Fisher

So there you have it! I’m pumped to finally be checking out these flicks, as just about every one has been on my ongoing “To Watch” list for several years. I’ve always heard about the Gothic beauty of Hammer Horror but now I will finally see what all the fuss is about for myself. Same goes for the work of Nakagawa and Shindō. Cannot wait. And depending on time I might sneak in a few more random movies, but I’m not promising anything.

The extravaganza kicks off October 4th with Vampire Journals!

Announcing the Horrific Month of October!

We LOVE horror movies here at Silver Emulsion and we’re going absolutely fuckin’ apeshit for them come October! The entire month will feature nothing but horror reviews and I’m so excited about it! I had so many movies I wanted to get in that I’m starting it off early on the final week of September. Why? On the faulty logic that that Friday is October 1st!

I’ll be doing two reviews a week from the Empire International/Full Moon catalog on Tuesdays and Fridays, and a Dario Argento movie every Wednesday.

And Uncle Jasper’s coming in on his regular Mondays and Thursdays with a bunch of horror-inspired lucha libre films!

In addition to that, we will be attending and covering the Weekend of Horrors event featuring all kinds of killer faces from the genre! We haven’t yet worked out exactly what kind of coverage this will be, so stay tuned!

The month long event culminates in the final week of October when we both set our sights on four from the Shaw Brothers horror film library! This will be like a one-week version of the Django festival from a couple of months ago. After the break, check out the schedule for this week and the films we decided on!
