Reserved Seating: Scary Movie Month Pre-Game

The review duo (and Patrick Bromley!) who picked out our first-time watch must-sees for this year's Scary Movie Month!


  1. Love Trouble Every Day, Rob! You're in for a ride. Patrick, I am excited for you to see Wicker Man--that's one I thought I knew what it would be like and was totally wrong. Adam, I haven't seen any of the ones you mentioned but I have wanted to watch Once Bitten for a while even though zany Jim Carrey is a little hit and miss for me. (See also: Andy having an Ace Venture shirt, me hating Ace Ventura.)

    I don't necessarily plan out my Scary Movie Month viewing ahead of time, but I do have a secret Letterboxd list I've been adding to in case I get stuck and need inspiration. Will this be the year I finally watch The Others, the 70s Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Unfriended: Dark Web? Only time will tell!

    1. OOOO....the 70s Invasion of the Body Snatchers scared me to DEATH as a kid...i stayed up late and snuck watched it. Im glad you brought it up as ive had the bluray for some time but not watched..absolutely will add that to my scary movie month list!!!

  2. WOOT! Scary movie month is almost here! Great ep dudes!!!

    Suggestion for y'all that have Shudder: they're running a multi part show reviewing their list of the "Top 101 Scariest Horror Movie Moments of All Time". As with every list about art ever, its a very subjective subject, however they do a great job with it..lots of fun and lots of horror fan talking heads being excited about the movies. Additionally, im finding it is a great source for movie suggestions of flicks that ive never seen but had on the "man i really need to watch that one some day" list in my brain. When i come across those i dont watch the segment as its super spoilery but do jot them down for Scary Movie Month fodder!

    Peace .n. BOYYYYYYYYYYY!!!


  3. It’s been 30 years but I’m pretty sure I saw Once Bitten on USA Up All Night and that it was appropriately doubled with the Patrick Dempsey “classic” Loverboy, which should let you know everything you need to expect.
    I also have never seen The Wicker Man and feel a little bad about it every time I rewatch Hot Fuzz.

  4. There is a werewolf in Werewolf in a Girl's Dormitory, Patrick. Krimi element is probably the criminal investigation aspect of it. It is an entertaining slice of 1960s Eurohorror. I find the Italian dub more enjoyable than the English dub, though.

    Once Bitten is a lot of fun. It is the kind of film that is better because of its 1980s vibe. That dance sequence is one to remember.

    I actually have a viewing plan for the month, but who knows what life has in store.
