October horror movie days

I'm going to try and watch one horror movie a day during the month of October.

I missed starting last night so tonight was a double feature starting with:

Return of the Living Dead 2.
This movie had two of the main actors from the first Return of the Living Dead but as different characters, kinda wierd.

Not to mention it had the girl from Killer Klowns from Outer Space. Basically I was in for great acting all around. The zombies looked worse( and i don't mean that as a compliment) than the zombies in the first one. I guess it wasn't suppose to be a sequel to ROTLD but the studio would only fund it if it was a continuation of the series. You get what you pay for. I kinda dug it but nowhere near as fun as the original.

Second on the agenda for the night was The Evil Dead.

I've seen this movie about 30 times and it always gets better even though might as well watch The Evil Dead Two: dead by dawn since that is a mix of a remake and added story elements like Ash getting cockier.
Still The Evil Dead is great. And even though I've seen it tons of times Bruce Campbell's chin always amazes me as how big it is. He has grown into it since then but its kind of shocking every first shot of him in the backseat of the car.
I love looking for the Hills Have Eyes poster in the basement of the cabin in an homage to Wes Craven, also look for a Freddy Krueger-eque glove in the shed in Evil Dead 2.

Not sure what will be on the view after work tomorrow.
Maybe Dance of the Dead or The Signal.
