Maybe it was only called The Devil's Bride during its US theatrical release?

Night of the Demon was re-titled Curse of the Demon for its US theatrical release, but nobody calls it that any more.

That's true. The DVD I have for that one includes both cuts of the movie, but Night of the Demon is the main one.

That's another great flick.

And honestly Greg shame on you, I picked up all the Hammer Dracula's on DVD, they aren't that expensive.

Well, by "taped," I mean I recorded them on my DVR to watch later. I wasn't going to stay up until four AM just to watch them all in one night!
No worries just thought more people had the DVD's really.

One of these days, although I have way too many DVDs I don't have time to watch already! Plus, some of that old Hammer stuff is hard to find on DVD here in the States. I would love to find a decent copy of VAMPIRE CIRCUS . . . .[/QUOTE]

Yeah it comes out slowly even here in the UK, it took until October 2008 I think it was for Brides of Dracula to finally be released.

I have the same one.

Maybe they renamed it The Devil's Bride so that American audiences wouldn't think it was a Western?

Rats. I was out seeing Blithe Spirit, so I missed them all-- except for the end of Gorgon, which I've seen before. I don't think I've seen any of the others.

I just got Zombieland which I haven't seen as well.
After that its the Evil Dead trilogy. The original is actually the only I've seen completely and that was years ago.
The Raimi movies are a treat, the highlight (in my opinion) being Evil Dead II. They're best watched with some friends, if you can arrange a night to have some over.
As noted I watched Evil Dead a few nights ago. Got Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn and watched it last night. First time I've ever seen it.

Keeping in mind I just saw Evil Dead 5 days ago I maybe making the mistake of wanting some continuity between ED-I and ED-II.

Why is Ash returning to the same cabin acting as if he's never been there? The movie is 75% the first movie with some parts rearranged and some added exposition about how the book was found. Showing the Professor, his wife and kids. It fleshes out more backsory on the demons which is good. Would have preferred if one of the demons had had and exchange like this during the second act.
Ash - Why are you doing this to me?
Demon - Because you agreed to it.
Ash - Agreed to it?
Demon - Last year you came and in exchange for your life you agreed to bring us new souls. Knowing we couldn't trust you we wiped your memory and implanted you with the idea of coming back. *insert sick laugh here*
Ash - No, no, no---never again.

Overall a good film despite the F/X limitations of '87. Up next is Army of Darkness. Having run my only above issue by an offline friend he's already instructed me to not ask about why the chainsaw never runs out of gas. Just go with it, its one of those movies he said.

Heck, I miss the effects limitations of 1987. But I'm aware that I'm fairly alone in that aspect.

I meant to warn you about that Evil Dead/Evil Dead II thing. I'm not even sure you can call the second one a sequel so much as a remake with a slightly higher budget. That, or you can just view Campbell as playing two different characters between them. Heck, their names aren't even the same. In the first one, the character is called Ashley, but in the other two he's Bill Ash. Continuity's never been Raimi's strong suit.

I subjected my wife to Trick 'R Treat a few nights ago and she enjoyed it, to my relief.

For reading, I'm alternating between Something Wicked This Way Comes and my favorite stories from the fantastic Halloween Horrors collection edited by Alan Ryan.

I miss the effects "limitations" of all decades. This is why I love stuff like the silent Call Of Cthulhu and the retro-style House Of Wolf Man; actually, one of the reasons I liked Supernatural from the start was the way it echoed those grainy low-budget horror movies of the 80s.

I'm not sure if I even noticed the name thing. My feeling at the time was that II lacked the spark of the original. Evil Dead had a raw energy similar to the original Night Of The Living Dead; the sequel just seemed to be going through the motions.

I love that movie. I plan to watch it again this year for my Marathon.

I'm also going to try to read Bradbury's Halloween Tree, which I just bought.

Love the Evil Dead series. Each film is better than the last IMO. Bubba Ho-Tep is great too.

My greatest love is reserved for Universal Horror though. I watched The Black Cat earlier today. Great pre-code horror flick with Karloff and Lugosi. Karloff is pure evil. The performances along with the craziness (Karloff is a satanist who preserves dead women in glass containers) make it a treat.

Bubba Ho-Tep is a classic.

Re: Hallowe'en Reading and Viewing, 2010!

I just watched this interesting video: CineMassacre: Top 10 Lost Horror Films.

A few of them, like London After Midnight and The Cat Creeps are obvious choices, but there were several I didn't know about, like Japanese King Kong movies from the '30s.

Check it out if you've got about 15 minutes to spare.

Re: Hallowe'en Reading and Viewing, 2010!

Lost as in not getting the props they deserve, or lost as in no copies exist? I hate when things get lost forever like that...

I'll definitely check this out over the weekend. Japanese King Kong. Wow.

James Rolfe's monster madness series is great fun every year. I'm a fan.

Going through my universal titles still. Watched Bride of Frankenstein yesterday. Near perfect movie, way better than the first.

I'm reading Lisey's Story by Stephen King. I haven't decided what I'm going to watch for my yearly horror-thon yet. I'm running out of stuff that's supposed to be good that I haven't seen.
