It’s two days until Halloween. October is the one month where the general public gets into spooky pursuits so you’ve got to mainline that vibe as much as you can to carry you through the other eleven, non-spooky months. With that in mind, here’s a collection of twelve terrors that cover the gamut from kitsch to classic. This lineup includes a cult classic of the “devil cult” variety, two wacky Category III shockers from Hong Kong, a pair of watchable if somewhat wacky sequels to Scanners and one of the best made-for-t.v. horror films ever made.
Special Spooky Bonus: four of these titles have also been covered at feature length here at Schlockmania – Nightmares, Scanners II, Scanners III and Twice Dead – so click on their titles below to access the full-size alternate reviews for these films.
