I liked this one, pretty girls and a little spooky stuff.      

This still gets me rollin, especially the part with the dead football team.

Just thought of it, one of the creepiest television moments of 1999 was "Hush", the silent episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For me, that is one of the scariest episodes in television history.

I picked up a copy of Stigmata yesterday and adding it to the list. I also realized that I own most, if not all, of the Resident Evil movies. I suppose I could do a marathon of that next weekend. And finish it off with the Silent Hill movies.

The original Salem's Lot is also a good one to watch this time of year.

Well inspired by the GTKU thread and these conversations I gave American Horror Story  a try - Season 2 Asylum - seemed to have the best reviews.  

watched 2 episodes and wasn't impressed. Aliens, Devil Possession, abusive guards, medical experiments, repressive society, serial killer wearing a skin suit ...  its like they were just throwing stuff at a wall. 

 

The Haunting of Hill House (netflix version) is planning on releasing a sequel in a few days...  Bly Manor 

but it is based on an old story - 

one of my horror favorites from growing up, but it was most effective because I didn't already know the twist. 

thus my efforts not to name the source material. 

Ill watch and hope that it gets far enough from the source to be surprising.

Man I loved Warlock, but it is one of those movies that didn't really make the crossover to more modern media well.

 

A couple of others I enjoy that are acceptable for Halloween are Night Breed and Solomon Kane. Solomon Kane is one of the great underrated movies of our time, and James Purefoy is brilliant. I get that the production values may not have been the highest, but still a great flick. Night Breed hasn't aged as well, but it's still a decent watch.

I ended up watching one of my Scooby-Doo movies yesterday, so I might have to re-think my marathon idea...

It was "Scooby-Doo and the Curse of the 13th Ghost." I enjoyed it. I watched the 13th Ghost series a few years ago and I liked how they connected it to the modern "canon." The DVD comes with the premier episode and another one.

Yes, sadly true, I still love it though.

That's a shame. Strange they should block it there but not here.

I've just watched 'The Conjuring' with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. Really well done I thought. 

 

Also, yesterday I saw a low budget movie called 'The Shrine' - fairly run of the mill initially but then it really ramps up and the twist is excellent https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1341710/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

That’s one of our favorites here! I really enjoyed the format, they did the separate stories really well.

They have it on The Big River for $8 US.

 

One I want to see again, after far too long - Pumpkinhead. Stan Winston at his best.

 

And maybe an embarrassing favorite - Innocent Blood.

They did, there's something particularly unnerving about that film. On the one hand it feel a bit like a Horror comedy and on the other it's extremely sinister

      Better late than never.

      Here's some fun Pumpkin Horrors I painted up for @Inarah for Secret Sophie this past December.  I was still riding on my Halloween spirit when Secret Sophie began, but wanted to do something that fit the winter theme.  Inspired by the snowman-like design of the Pumpkin horrors and my own past mistakes of leaving pumpkins outside to rot all winter, I decided to do a holiday mashup with these guys left out in the cold too long.

      With some time having passed, I wish I would have made them look a bit rotten and frost-bitten, but I also like the more colorful result.

      These were some fun minis and my first time working with metal.  I have now broken the seal and have started looking into other minis that I previously considered off-limits.  I also enjoyed participating in Secret Sophie and joining in to some of the forum shenanigans.  I highly recommend participating in these kinds of things for any who have been reticent.
       
      What are some of your favorite holiday minis?

      This is Reaper's Elise the Witch.
      SKU. 02863 ( Metal Figure)
       
      Once she was part of a big Halloween Diorama but that didn't survive the move.
      I was able to save the minis though.
       
      I rebased her, gave her some highlights/ repainted parts.
      She's back in action now, ready to turn you into a frog or a willing servant.

      I know, I know, 2020 is scary enough, but here are some spooky miniatures.

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.
       

       
      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 
       

       
      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 
       

       
      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
       
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!

      Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. 

      Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry.

      Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. 

      Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. 

      Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support.

      A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. 

      An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends.

      A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches.

      Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. 

      Another vampire and werewolf allies.

      Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. 

      Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.
