October Halloween Horrorfest 2014by apathy2673 | created - 01 Oct 2014 | updated - 8 months ago | Public
A horror movie a day for October and Halloween. I will try to watch as many horror movies from 2014, which are available on Hulu, Netflix and Amazon as possible.I might check out Crackle and Popcornflix etc. So it won't be pretty...I'm going into these cold, meaning I won't read any reviews before watching but I will suffer through the crap to hopefully find something good.
Long story short, wound up in hospital for 6 weeks and couldn't finish this list in October 2014. I'll slowly get to 31 but boy have the movies been bad.

1. Hatchet III (2013)
R | 81 min | Action, Horror, Thriller
A search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces, and Marybeth learns the secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
It's 2013 but I hadn't seen it(seen 1&2). Gory(non CGI), fully competent, well lit and enjoyable. More of an Aliens/Predator meets Hatchet than Hatchet but still reccomended.
2. The Last Light (2014)
Not Rated | 93 min | Drama, Thriller
Seven strangers find themselves trapped inside an abandoned hospital after an unexplainable apocalyptic event. In addition to being haunted by what they've lost, the strangers must also ... See full summary »
Well lit and acted. The twist is obvious so it gets kinda slow towards the end. When you find yourself wondering about the production schedule and how many days Edward Furlong and Jeff Fahey were on set...well...
3. The 13th Unit (2014)
Not Rated | 79 min | Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Seven strangers find themselves trapped in an underground storage facility, struggling to survive while being hunted by a supernatural beast that resides inside the mysterious 13th unit.
*beep* this movie, this movie sucks. If storage unit centers get you off, then this is the movie for you. It is endless scenes of well lit storage units. Every death by the monster happens after the victim is dragged into one of these units, off screen. The filmmakers didn't even bother to design a monster...you never see it. No gore, no monster, no fun. Do not watch this movie if you are looking for Halloween goodness. You're welcome.
4. Fields of the Dead (2014)
84 min | Horror
Seven friends find themselves on an isolated farm. Here, they discover an ancient book, which summons demons from the surrounding woods. Now, these friends will have to find a way out of the fields, if they want to survive.
Fields of the no blood and gore...and no boobies. Why do horror movies these days think they have to aspire to something? Give us less story and acting and replace it with gore and shower scenes. Chelsie Hartness is drop dead gorgeous, and a good actor, hopefully we'll see more of her...she was the only reason to keep watching this dreck.
UPDATE! I've been duped, this is a re-titling of a 2008 movie called The Wretched. So it's not a 2014 title. FFS!
5. Rise of the Animals (2011)
Not Rated | 70 min | Adventure, Comedy, Horror
In a world where animals have turned on humanity, a teen travels across the country in search of the girl of his dreams.
Unimpressed with the last few wastes of time I went for some comedy. Starts off hilariously well with a ridiculous non CGI deer attack. Then it becomes some kind of love story and the animals don't attack. Until we get intentionally bad CGI animal attacks. SKIP IT.
6. Haunting of Cellblock 11 (2014)
R | 85 min | Horror, Thriller
A group of ghost hunters must up their game to compete in the competitive world of paranormal TV shows, leading them to a truly haunted prison with a grisly past that proves to be more than they bargained for.
If I owned a physical copy of this movie I would smash it into 1000 pieces, flush it down my toilet and gladly pay a sewer tech to dig up my land and unclog this piece of crap from my pipes. That is all. Do NOT watch.
7. Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)
Not Rated | 91 min | Horror, Sci-Fi
When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumble upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh eating virus consumes them all.
Appropriately disgusting, thoroughly enjoying solid Halloween horror fare. Could have used more Sean Astin but enjoy it! Ebola might make this movie seem quite relevant...
8. Malice (2012– )
Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
At the Turner house, the norm isn't the norm.
Apparently, this was a web series and this is the full compilation. Very creative, creepy and psychedelic and an absolutely perfect Halloween Horrorfest viewing. Good stuff. Brittany Martz definitely has a career ahead of her.
9. The Coed and the Zombie Stoner (2014)
Unrated | 91 min | Comedy, Horror
When a nerdy sorority girl falls in love with a zombie, it's only a matter of time before a zombie apocalypse is unleashed on campus. The sorority girl discovers that weed is the cure--now ... See full summary »
Hilarious. Totally gets what it is. Weed, massive gratuitous boob shots as an FU, 2 hilarious hot girls who are naked almost all of their time on screen, gore, zombies and cartoon sound effects. It's actually a cute love story as well. Why would you NOT want to watch this?
10. Rabid Love (2013)
Not Rated | 90 min | Horror, Thriller
Five recent college grads go for one last vacation in the woods during the summer of 1984 and one of them is infected with a mad scientist's synthetic rabies virus.
I can't think of anything to say about this movie other than that it's bad and unenjoyable. So, this movie is bad and unenjoyable. Oh wait, this movie has the worst soundtrack you will ever hear...must've been the directors' brothers' band.
11. Alien: Isolation (2014 Video Game)
M | Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Set 15 years after the events of Alien, gamers play as Ripley's daughter and embark on a mission to find her missing mother.
Had to watch football this weekend...how bout them Cowboys!? Anyways...easier to play a horror game than watch a horror movie while watching football. Decent game but wait for a major price drop..
12. Deliverance from Evil (2012)
TV-14 | 90 min | Horror
When a married couple lose their son in their new home, they soon realize there is an evil presence in their house.
Appears to have been made by friends and family in their living rooms on the weekends. The only ”scary" thing that happens is a chair moves. I would say do NOT watch this under any circumstances except for the appearance of the psychic. A clearly Latino/Hispanic actor doing a Vincent Price accent...which changes to Italian when he is getting killed. Seriously...you have to see this guy...laughter is the best medicine.
13. Carrie (2013)
R | 100 min | Drama, Horror
A shy girl, outcasted by her peers and sheltered by her religious mother, unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.
Votes: 120,414 | Gross: $35.27M
Perfectly acceptable Halloween horror flick. Even if you've seen the original.
14. Sweatshop (2009)
Unrated | 90 min | Horror
A group of friends break into an abandoned factory in order to throw a impromptu party; unaware that it is not as empty as they originally believed.
Not 2014 but I wanted to watch something sleazy and gory. Definitely sleazy, somewhat gory. How can a movie about people in a warehouse getting killed off be completly incoherent? Watch this and find out. Also this movie has a punk rocker with a spiked mohawk break dancing...like actually spinning around on the ground on his back...
15. Sledge (2014)
Not Rated | 75 min | Horror
Sledge hits you from the beginning with humor and originality. Opening with Assly's True American Horror television program, the action kicks off instantly with skull crushing deaths from ... See full summary »
This is as bad as horror movies get...I still have 16 more to go though. Hopefully they'll have more than one light on set, someone who can record two actors exchanging dialogue and won't have detestable characters who take far too long to be killed. You have been warned.
16. The Ouija Experiment (2013)
Not Rated | 92 min | Horror
Film student Brandon and four friends play with a Ouija board, unwittingly opening a portal to the spirit world and a drowned girl's deadly mystery.
bad, baD, bAD, BAD!
17. I Spit on Your Grave 2 (2013)
R | 106 min | Horror, Thriller
When Katie innocently accepts an offer to have new photos taken for her portfolio, the experience quickly turns into a nightmare of rape, torture and kidnapping. Now, she will have to find the strength to exact her brutal revenge.
Votes: 22,457 | Gross: $0.00M
If you like revenge movies, you'll like this. If you like torture movies, you'll like this. If you enjoy brutal rape scenes, you'll like this. I'm not so crazy about brutal rape scenes. It's a pretty well done movie so I'd recommend it if this is your type.
18. Devil in My Ride (2013)
Not Rated | 95 min | Adventure, Comedy, Horror
After Doreen has been possessed by the devil on her wedding night, her groom Hank, and her rebellious brother Travis, put aside their differences to travel across country from Chicago to ... See full summary »
I'm beginning to think I'll never see a good horror movie again. Not enough horror in this one, way too much lame comedy.
19. I, Frankenstein (2014)
PG-13 | 92 min | Action, Fantasy, Horror
Frankenstein's creature finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.
Votes: 72,895 | Gross: $19.08M
Take the annoying Gargoyles out, make it Frankenstein's Monster vs the Demons and this would be a better movie. Acceptable Halloween demonic fare. A lot of martial arts action. This would be a good movie to watch on a plane ride.
20. Seed 2 (2014)
78 min | Horror
Coming back from her bachelor party in Las Vegas, Christine and her friends are driving through the hot desert of Nevada. But they are not alone - serial killer Max Seed is back and he brought the whole family.
This is not a movie. This is an awful, incoherent mess. It's non-linear as well, adding to the confusion. It starts off with a girl being raped by a pistol and I'd say it goes downhill from there but it just goes nowhere and makes no sense. Why they made it makes even less sense when you realize it's a sequel to a Uwe Boll movie. Bad beyond belief.
21. The Dead the Damned and the Darkness (2014)
90 min | Action, Horror, Thriller
To reach the sea, a soldier has to fight his way through zombie hordes as well attempt to help other survivors along the way.
Slow, boring and bad. I guess it's a sequel...hopefully the first movie was better than this one.
22. Beneath (V) (2013)
Unrated | 89 min | Adventure, Horror
A crew of coal miners becomes trapped 600 feet below ground after a disastrous collapse. As the air grows more toxic and time runs out, they slowly descend into madness and begin to turn on one another.
Above average, well lit and acted. Should make for decent(Descent?) Halloween or horror viewing. As an extra added bonus, Jeff Fahey is in it!
23. The ABCs of Death (2012)
Not Rated | 129 min | Comedy, Horror
A 26-chapter anthology that showcases death in all its vicious wonder and brutal beauty.
Directors: Kaare Andrews, Angela Bettis, Hélène Cattet, Ernesto Díaz Espinoza, Jason Eisener, Bruno Forzani, Adrián García Bogliano, Xavier Gens, Jorge Michel Grau, Lee Hardcastle, Noboru Iguchi, Thomas Cappelen Malling, Anders Morgenthaler, Yoshihiro Nishimura, Banjong Pisanthanakun, Simon Rumley, Marcel Sarmiento, Jon Schnepp, Srdjan Spasojevic, Timo Tjahjanto, Andrew Traucki, Nacho Vigalondo, Jake West, Ti West, Ben Wheatley, Adam Wingard, Yudai Yamaguchi | Stars: Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Iván González, Kyra Zagorsky, Lucy Clements
Votes: 16,266 | Gross: $0.02M
A substitute teacher in Columbus, Ohio was convicted of four felonies and will likely spend significant time in prison for showing this movie to her Spanish class. That's all the endorsement I need to watch this! There's basically a gory death every few minutes, and the occasional comedy bit, one of which involves farting Japanese lesbians. Thumbs up for a Halloween viewing! And what was that teacher thinking!?
24. Dead Silence (2007)
R | 89 min | Fantasy, Horror, Mystery
A young widower returns to his hometown to search for answers to his wife's murder, which may be linked to the ghost of a murdered ventriloquist.
Votes: 75,908 | Gross: $16.81M
This was recommended for me by Gob Bluth on Netflix. Pretty good, creepy horror story. Could've used more gore and deaths but this is proper Halloween viewing.
25. App (2013)
75 min | Sci-Fi, Thriller
A young psychology student is drawn into the dark and fearful world of a diabolic and mysterious App that starts to terrorize her, distributing compromising photographs, videos and text ... See full summary »
Stylish, Dutch and dubbed into english. This movie is about an evil app that wreaks havoc kind of like in Final Destination. It's also kind of like the type of horror movies Joshua Jackson was in. Not great but slick and watchable.
26. Don't Blink (2014)
Not Rated | 92 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Ten people arrive at a secluded mountain resort to find it completely deserted. With no gas for the return trip, the visitors are forced to stay and investigate the mystery surrounding the abandoned lodge.
A small group goes to a mountain lodge but find it's empty. Faucets are running etc and it looks like people were there recently. Then people in the group start to dissappear. Sometimes they actually dissappear on camera. Thats it. People dissappear. Where do they go? The filmmakers couldn't be bothered with coming up with an answer. People in this area just go poof.
27. Alien Abduction (2014)
Not Rated | 85 min | Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller
A vacationing family encounters an alien threat in this thriller based on the real-life Brown Mountain Lights phenomenon in North Carolina.
Typical shaky found footage movie. This one is about an attack by aliens. Average at best.
28. Europa Report (2013)
PG-13 | 90 min | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
An international crew of astronauts undertakes a privately funded mission to search for life on Jupiter's fourth largest moon.
Votes: 60,718 | Gross: $0.13M
This movie is lots of scenes of people typing on keyboards while looking at video screens. Type type type. Look look look. Definitely not good Halloween viewing.
29. Gallowwalkers (2012)
R | 90 min | Action, Horror, Thriller
A cursed gunman (Snipes) whose victims come back from the dead recruits a young warrior to help in the fight against a gang of zombies.
A zombie western that's heavy on the western, light on the zombies. The director is a Sergio Leone fan for sure. Decent western, not good Halloween viewing.
30. Storage 24 (2012)
R | 87 min | Horror, Sci-Fi
In London, a military plane crashes leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. Completely unaware that the city is in lockdown, a group of people become trapped inside a storage facility with a highly unwelcome guest.
Not too bad. A lot of the murderous alien, some good gore and a decent body count.
31. Halloween (1978)
R | 91 min | Horror, Thriller
Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield to kill again.
Votes: 182,983 | Gross: $47.00M
Time to watch the best horror/Halloween movie of all time.
