Not my thing, I'm afraid! But on that score, the female vamps are seriously gorgeous. Plus it has the best looking actress around in Kate Beckinsale. So it does have some impressive assets...  :P :drooling:

By the way you may come to notice that the :drooling: icon is probably the most overused here...  :hysterical:

I think this was the first time that I watched all of Halloween.  I had heard about the movie for years and knew who Michael Myers was, but I didn't see the movie until like...hmm..3 or 4 years ago when AMC was showing it during their Halloween monster fest thing.  I had been thinking I saw all of the movie then, but now I'm not sure since there were things I didn't remember.  Anyway..I did enjoy, though a few of those characters annoyed me.

Halloween II wasn't as good as the first movie, but I still thought it was a decent sequel.  I liked that there were some explanations for what was going on.
I have heard that a lot of people didn't care for Halloween III at all.  It was kind of odd for it to be a Halloween movie and not have Michael Myers in it, but I understood the idea Carpenter had of telling different Halloween stories in the future movies.  Taken on its own, it isn't a bad movie and had a unique idea with for the plot.

The Addams Family really isn't scary, but I still like watching it around Halloween.

I might get another 2 or 3 in tonight.  Right now I'm at 37.  That's way more than I've watched in October previously, though there are still others I wanted to get in this month.

This was the first time that I've seen The Mist.  I did really like it overall, though there were a few things I didn't like as much.  The case claimed the ending was really shocking and it was, though not in the way I was thinking.  I'm not even sure how to describe it right now.  It was very ..intense and I felt like a change of pace after watching it..so I put in the happy and fun loving Sleepy Hollow.  :lol  Sleep Hollow was the first horror movie I got and one of the first DVDs I got and I have a tradition of watching it every year within a day or two of Halloween.
Since I got Slither earlier this week, I decided I had to fit in as well.  I love Fillion in this movie..he cracks me up.  I like all the Scream movies, though this third one is probably my least favorite.
