Halloween Fright Flick Frenzy: Round 3

Here's an update on the Halloween Fright Flick Frenzy. I have continued to celebrate Halloween month with horror movies that run the gamut from black and white classics to brutal, modern day entries to the genre. I even included a couple of horror/comedies, one of which is a personal favorite. 
Bela Lugosi as Igor
SON OF FRANKENSTEIN (1939) with Karloff & Lugosi (as Igor). Young Frankenstein fans will recognize a lot from this movie. A little slow, a but good climax. I give it a wooden thumb up from a wooden arm.

GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN (1942) Doubled down on Frankie tonight. Igor is the brains and the brawn in this one. Fast paced fun.

TERROR IN THE AISLES (1984) The CliffsNotes of horror movies hosted by Donald Pleasence. Clips from a number of horror movies and a look at what makes a movie scary. “Remember, it's only a movie."

AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (1981) Watched one of my all time favorites and what I think is the best werewolf movie ever. Funny, scary and incredible special effects.  ("it's still too 'eavy.")

FIDO (2006) Zombie/comedy fun. Walking Dead meets Pleasantville. Billy Connolly will melt your heart or eat it. And Carrie-Anne Moss never looked better.

THE DEVIL’S REJECTS (2005) Round two with Rob Zombie with his twisted sequel to House of 1000 Corpses, and big improvement over it. This movie is not for everyone. Let's face it, Rob Zombie is an acquired taste. A brutally violent flick peppered with lots of demented comedy, and a ton of familiar faces. Not for the squeamish. (Bonus points for the soundtrack.)
