    Already on 11 horror films since August, three this month so far. The House By The Cementery is the best of the bunch.

    Sleepaway Camp - 65/100

    Opening credits are auspicious, showing a subtle touch not often seen in this genre, but then the opening scene on the lake is so terribly staged and acted, so you don’t know what the hell to expect. Well, what we get is mostly amateurish acting and more poor staging mixed with a more “realistic” depiction of teenagers and interesting things happening in the margins and some quite well-done physical effects detailing the aftermath. It’s all pretty okay, until the final 20 minutes, where the killer starts to ramp things up and lose control, where the victims start to be less convincingly “deserving” of violent death, and we get to see other campers actually look distraught and beaten. And then the final scene is as perfect a distillation of psychologically disturbing horror as I’ve ever seen.

    Cinema is a wonderful beast.

    We watched this again the other night too!

    The camp counselors are all so creepy and give off a low-rent porno vibe that makes everything even more uncomfortable.

    The thing is, some of them are dicks, some are sympathetic... but there is no excusing that hairy stomached guy with that half t-shirt thing.

    The pedophile cook was so over-the-top obvious in his pedophilia that it almost scanned like a comedy.

    An exact line from the film: "No such thing as too young"

    I prefer Sleepaway Camp II, anyways. I do like the first one but I agree it has some wacked out moments. Also Aunt Martha is the strangest horror movie aunt, ever. I will view the third one, but I have low expectations for it.

    The Invisible Man Returns - B - Unexceptional in terms of its aesthetic. Like Son of Frankenstein, you can feel the loss of James Whale as a director and supervisor of the artists. But also like Son, this film finds enough juice left in the lemon to squeeze out some entertainment. The biggest pleasure? Watching the effects, some of which are lovably transparent (like the strings holding up guns), while others still dazzle nearly 80 years later. One inspector sucks on a cigar, turns, and puffs smoke directly onto the Invisible Man, and I'll be goddamned if that moment didn't shock me. I didn't think the craftsmen could do that, and so I wasn't expecting the reveal. The film starts slow, but around the halfway mark the film narrows in on the encroaching mania of the title villain, which leads to a terrific dinner sequence where a poisoned glass of wine sits there on the table, waiting to be drunk. Classic tension, done to effect.

    The director of this film also worked with Vincent Price on an adaptation of The House of the Seven Gables, which I'm very curious to watch now.

    What are anyone's thoughts on Suspiria (1977)?

    I saw the restoration again last night on Blu-Ray, and although I like the movie and there's no faulting its swanky aural and visual upgrade, the movie's a bit, well, over the top, sound and fury signifying something for sure, but not something enormously scary. The movie feels a bit ramshackle, with merely decent acting, a finale which doesn't quite push the heroine to her limits.

    I guess it's good, but its reputation seems a bit much.
