Halloween Horror Movie Picks

Each year I like to put together a short list of some of my favorite horror movies. Last year I steered more towards classic gore movies but this year it's just a random selection of great movies to help complete your Halloween. I tried to find full movies where I could on YouTube but unfortunately there's only trailers for some of these. My selections this year range from new to old and silly to down right disgusting. Looking at you Serbian Film. Most of these, if not all of them, can be found on Netflix and if you do some digging on line I'm sure you can dig up whatever you want. Let's kick things off with the 1992 Australian classic Dead Alive. Before Peter Jackson was telling the tale of hobbits and rings he was honing his craft as a director who wasn't afraid to throw some blood and guts in your face. Early in his career Jackson directed cult classics like Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles, and our first flick here, Dead Alive. Lionel, a Mama's boy, has the unwanted honor of having to look after his overbearingly evil mother. He ends up falling in love with a local woman who believes that they're destined together. In a moment of intentional sabotage on one of their dates, his mother is bitten by a mysterious creature that ends up zombifying her. It's only a matter of time before she rises from the dead as a powerful, bloodthirsty zombie. From there she starts infecting residents of the town, Lionel, and anything else that gets in her way.
