Keep it up. I hope Harry is baiting you with free flicks to make sure AMAD doesn't slip into obscurity.

Are awesome, lol. Oh, and Quint thanks for bringing my attention to this Amazon sale, which for some reason I was not aware of.

Well done on making it this far, to be honest I thought you'd do a weeks worth of these and then get all flustered and let it slip into obscurity. Good job.

The only one that stood out to me was the door bulging inward after the Baron was awoken the second time. It's been ages since I saw House of Wax, so I didn't notice anything from that, but I will keep a sharp eye on The Leopard Man when I get to it.

maybe one day 20 years from now your child will do this and see the new rambo for the first time and his balls will get blown off

Thanks for the tip on the sale, Quint. I bought Coffy, Sheba Baby, Foxy Brown, Blackula, Die Monster Die, and The Dunwich Horror. I'm a weird fucker.

Horror movies generally bore me, and I can't say that any really have frightened me. I do like psychological and or philosophical "horror" movies like Silence of the Lambs, the Original Wicker Man or Excorsist. Or if they have a cool mythology, such as Frankenstien, Dracula or even the modern Mummy movies.<p> Is Brava just a slasher type horor?
Sept. 10, 2008, 1:29 a.m. CST
did you say minkey? CATO YOU YELLOW SWINE!!
Sept. 10, 2008, 1:37 a.m. CST
Just what it says on the can. Thanks Quint. This has quickly become my favorite AICN column. You rule, buddy. The rest of you, snark away!

KanekoFan is right. I doubt Bava would be up your alley, but he's not a strictly stab and slash guy. Black Sabbath is a definite recommend. It's anthology and deals mostly with suspense (surprisingly not much blood). It's not out-there weird or exploitationy like the other Bava I've covered. Give that one a shot if you're curious.

Bad-ass! I tells ya!

Way to Go!! 100 movies and still keep on trucking, as for this movie, it sounds sufficently creepy which is never a bad thing
Sept. 10, 2008, 6:27 a.m. CST
Seriously man, if you value movies as much as you say (and I believe you - this column's become a daily fixture in my life) then please... DO NOT WATCH "TRAIL OF THE PINK PANTHER". I know it's part of the boxed set and therefore the series, but you will feel truly, truly, truly sickened and tainted by the end of it. That is all.
Sept. 10, 2008, 8:53 a.m. CST
Shit, I feel like I should pat myself on the back just for reading these 100 columns, and it only takes a couple of minutes of my day. But to actually watch a new movie and write about it every single day, that's quite an achievement, Quint. Glad to hear you're not tired yet. Sounds like things are only getting started.
Sept. 10, 2008, 9:11 a.m. CST
You're right, Knuckleduster. I'm just getting warmed up. Got some great oldies lined up for the rest of the month and building quite the stack for October's random horror movie a day.<BR><BR>Unfortunately, Unknown, I have seen Night of the Hunter, so it won't be a part of October's flicks. The shot of Shelley Winters under the water, hair flowing in the current, creeps me out just thinking about it.<BR><BR>Thanks for all the kind words all around. Got a busy day here in LA, but I'll be back tonight to write up A SHOT IN THE DARK.
Sept. 10, 2008, 9:12 a.m. CST
Seriously, I've always wondered about the good folks at AICN respective to 'work'. <br> <br> Obviously AICN is a full time job for Harry since he created the site. <br> <br> I've always respected Mori because I know he has other writing jobs outside of his contributions to AICN; same goes with Vern-O. <br> <br> Quint, how are you able to keep this up with other work obligations? I try to catch three movies a week but that is extremely difficult. I salute you for keeping this alive 100 times.
Sept. 10, 2008, 10:30 a.m. CST
Think you can squeeze "Jaws" in the AMAD sometime? It's a really good movie, I don't know if you've heard of it.
Sept. 10, 2008, 11:06 a.m. CST
One hundred movies and counting. Top effort, sir.

i'd love it if you'd get into some of the more obscure 80's horror flicks during october. or some popular ones you haven't seen. that would be fantastic.<br> <br>the only way i can into halloween now is by watching some good flicks.
Sept. 10, 2008, 12:07 p.m. CST
Thanks for the info on that sale.
Sept. 10, 2008, 12:24 p.m. CST
Times have changes, but this title really freaked me out when saw it. I'm sure it would look silly should I see it today. Another movie that scared me way back then was HOMICIDAL. Never heard mention of it since-kinda a rip off on Psycho. Another oldie but goodie was DEMENTIA 13-by Francis Ford Coppola!
Sept. 10, 2008, 12:44 p.m. CST
I blame it on the lame, derivative script. I also heard that American International tinkered with the movie, editing certain scenes to circumvent an R-rating. The BARON simply forfeits the visual panache that Bava invested into BLACK SUNDAY.
Sept. 10, 2008, 12:49 p.m. CST
How about THE CREEPING UNKNOWN (QUATERMASS XPERIMENT) and X-THE UNKNOWN? Both are rather timeless and certainly don't their anonymity. Hell, both are lightyears better than the DRACULA sequels (exempting BRIDES OF DRACULA, Hammer's masterpiece).
Sept. 10, 2008, 4:41 p.m. CST
Bravo Quint on the first 100. I really enjoy this column and hope to see it run for several hundred more. Best of Luck!
Sept. 10, 2008, 8:32 p.m. CST
Try Danger:Diabolik. It has nothing to do with horror, but is based on a comic about a burglar. It's the height of 60s spy-flick stylization, visually popping, and a lot of fun. Of the Bavas I've seen, Danger:Diabolik + Blood and Black Lace are my favorites. Also Danger:Diabolik has a kick-ass theme by Ennio Morricone.<p> Way to go on 100, Quint!!!
