I think I saw it, and it was BAAD. He was invincible and very bad at acting. He was also in a horror movie where his junk becomes a monster and kills people called, One Eyed Monster. the claymation "monster" is so weak I fell asleep off and on during this.

But as kicks and giggles, we should have a thread for horrible zombie movies to avoid. lol

1) Love both of the movies you've picked. It's been way too long since I've seen either of them, and anything that has John Carpenter's name on it is gold for me.

2) Speaking of old, classic movies, I had a great craft beer this weekend called "Nosferatu". I had to explain to the group I was with who/what Nosferatu was, and describe the classic B&W film.

3) A priest pi$$ing holy water??? That is the coolest ending to a movie I've ever heard of. Now I want to see it! Yager.. I know you're with me on this one.

I liked The Fog. I agree with you - they are Zombiesque. I've never seen White Zombie. Or any Zombie Movies that are "BR". I'll have to check it out. Thank you!!

P.S. - In preparation for my own Zombie movie highlight... I have been trolling some pretty awful Zombie movies. One which really isn't a Zombie movie, but M insisted that we watch called "Andre the Butcher"... merely b/c it starred Ron Jeremy. It was awful. I really wanted to run in the bathroom and pour peroxide in my eyes. It's only redeeming moment was the very end. The only way to kill Andre the Butcher would be to douse his skeleton in his coffin with holy water. The priest and the hooker (*cough* I mean Cheerleader) end up losing all their holy water otw to his coffin. And as they lay beside the coffin, supposedly dying from being stabbed by Andre.. the priest suddenly tells said Cheerleader to unzip his pants. She is glad to oblige. He orders her to direct the stream at the coffin, then blesses his own urine while he pees on the corpse.

Pretty darn awful... LOL.

The other morning it was extremely foggy on the drive into work, which has inspired my pick for the week. The Fog (1980) by John Carpenter, starring Adrienne Barbeau, Hal Halbrook, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Atkins and Janet Leigh.

The plot revolves around a long ago injustice done by the town founders, who lured a ship of lepers planning to start a safe haven colony on land purchased from one of the founders onto treacherous rocks, where everyone on the ship died. The town founders then looted the ship and used the gold to found the town and church (one of the lepers, Blake, was wealthy).

Now ready to celebrate its centennial strange things start to happen and every time a strange fog rolls in from the ocean people die as the ghosts of the lepers seek vengeance. I was maybe 8 when I saw it and lived in fear of fog for awhile. The special effects of the leper zombie ghosts is not up to today's standards but for 1980 wasn't too bad. Skip the 2005 remake, it was pretty bad.

This is not a zombie flick per se, but the vengeful leper ghosts take physical form in the fog, and because they are lepers look and move a whole lot like zombies.

So to stay true to the challenge I have a second pick. We can kick off the month of Shocktober with a return to the roots of zombie movies, from the BR era (Before Romero) with White Zombie starring Bela Lugosi. I think this is one of the very first zombie movies.

This movie is from 1932 and introduces us to the traditional view of zombies, that of "dead" people enslaved by an evil witch doctor. The zombies are not truly dead, they have been given a powder which makes them appear to be dead, they get buried and then the witch doctor digs them up and re-animates them, at which point they have no memories, no will other than their master's, and apparently no soul. They walk around doing Lugosi's bidding while staring straight ahead or up at the sky.

A couple travels to Haiti where they are to wed immediately at the home of a "friend" who is also madly in love with the bride to be. She rejects him so he seeks the help of Lugosi, who has his own designs on the woman, to make her completely forget her new husband, so he can possess her. The "friend" does not quite understand in time exactly what turning her into a zombie means.

It's hard to judge what the original impact of the movie would have been. Compared to today the acting is a bit over the top and there is a lot of posturing and posing going on, close ups of Lugosi's eyes and eyebrows, which are in serious need of trimming, and the zombies are not physically scary or dangerous to anyone (unless their master orders them to be). It is probably more of a psychological scare than anything, if you stop to think about becoming a soul-less enslaved creature.

Both movies are available on Netflix.
