Movie Ramblings: My Top Halloween Movies to Watch, Part Two

Here's the second part of MY TOP 10 LIST of HALLOWEEN MOVIES to watch, in no peculiar order.

UNDERWORLD(2003) Was as a great mix of action and horror elements where audiences were told about a secret war between Vampires and Lycans (Werewolves). A Skintight leather catsuit wearing KATE BECKINSALE plays a vampire “Deathdealer” named Selene, who comes into contract with a human named Michael Corvin (played SCOTT SPEEDMAN), who’s being hunted by the Lycans. Despite the reviews of  so-called Movie Critics, this film has gained a great fan following due to it’s stylish Gothic visuals, dynamic action scenes, and a greatly detailed vampire-werewolf mythology developed for the film. 

SHAUN OF THE DEAD (2004) turn the whole zombie movie phenomenon on it’s head by mixing a little romantic comedy in there, British style. Starring the comedic duo of SIMON PEGG and NICK FROST from the awesome British sitcom SPACED, dealing with another Zombie Apocalypse while trying to get back with PEGG’s girlfriend played by actress KATE ASHFIELD.

I first saw this Hammer Horror movie as a kid when my dad bought home a copy on VHS. The image of sexy Danish actress Yutte Stensgaard drenched in blood and partially covered by blood-soaked rags left an impression on my young mind. Just seeing Tits in a movie was great, but the add element of horror and blood was something else with daring depictions of lesbian themes wasn’t something you seen all the time during that period.

Michael Myers

HALLOWEEN (1978), It was JOHN CARPENTER's 1987 movie HALLOWEEN that started the whole Slasher horror movie genre, inspiring many imitators. But none beat the original Bogeyman MICHAEL MYERS, and who can forget the debut of the original Scream Queen JAMIE LEE CURTIS. Everyone can recognise the movie's trademark theme song, which sends a chill down one's spine.This movie is a treat for the adults on any dark & scary night.

Sexy Jamie Lee Curtis

NOSFERATU (1922), a classic Silent horror film by German Expressionist director F.W. MURNAU, starring a creepy MAX SCHRECK as the vampire Count Orlok. The film was an unauthorized adaptation of BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA, but possibly the most faithful and scariest Dracula films. A must see from film fans this time of year.

Everyone Have a Happy Halloween.
