"WARNING! No one will be seated during the last ten minutes of this shocking film! It is recommended that
Late night ghoulish greetings, my Army of the Damned. We're kinda sleepy, sitting here watching "House of 1,000 Corpses" and feeling nostalgic. And kind of excited! Ever since our announcement of the upcoming SATANFEST 2013, the phones at the offices of the Unstoppable Movie Monster have been ringing off the hook! The bill collectors will not leave us alone! It was so dumb to include our phone number in our blogger profile! You stupid humans. Stupid! STUPID!
But other than those unwarranted interruptions, your loyal crew of film enthusiasts here at UMM have been hard at work compiling a list of movies pertaining to the Devil or demonic possession for next month's satanic marathon. It hasn't been easy, because we are trying to work up a list of movies that we either haven't ever seen or that we're only marginally familiar with. But we assigned a few members of our loyal crew to the task and they've come up with a few ringers.
Here's a partial list, to tickle your ass with a feather as they say:
"The Exorcism of Emily Rose"
"The Last Exorcism
"End of Days"
"The Blood on Satan’s Claw"
It's a very exciting list so far - for me, anyway - as I have only seen three of the movies out of those ten. And that is just a teaser of the movies we're lining up for viewing, and we are also still accepting your suggestions, so be sure to email those to us! The sooner we get the list, the sooner we can post it, with the movies in order.
We do know for sure that we will's kick off the month-long marathon on Tuesday, Oct. 1 with a viewing of Rob Zombie's newest mindfuck of a film, 2013's "The Lords of Salem." I actually went to the theater to see this, and I was one of six people in the theater - and three of them were with me. And that is a shame, because I personally think it's destined to be a new cult classic. I have a lot to say about the movie, but I will save all that for the Oct. 1 blog.
And that's kind of it for the night kiddies. Yours Truly is kinda tired as all hell. But more to come very soon, and keep your suggestions rolling in!
100 Days of Horror welcomes you to ... SATANFEST 2013

- "Y'all know me, know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish! Not like going down to the pond and chasing bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow ya whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', and down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back the tourists, that'll put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant! I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's too many captains on this island. Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing."
