What I watched in September

DEATH RACE (2008)- 3
THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER (1960)- 9 (rewatch)
THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN Pilot film (1973)- 5 (hadn’t seen this since I was a kid)
CRAZY EIGHTS (2007)- 2 (abysmally boring attempt at a horror film)
SEX & FURY (1973)- 7 (the nude swordfight is brilliant!)
THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR (1975)- 6 (Yul Brynner kicks everyone’s ass in a post apocalyptic future)
BLOOD OF DRACULA (1957)- 4 (rife with perfect MST3K moments)
CREEPSHOW 2 (1987)- 5 (rewatch)
BABYLON A.D. (2008)- 6 (can’t wait for the full length DVD)
THE DRACULA SAGA (1972)- 6 (very different take on the old tale)
THE HELLBENDERS (1967)- 7 (good Corbucci western)
TRANSSIBERIAN (2008)- 7 (Brad Anderson crafts another good thriller)
P2 (2007)- 7 (solid little thriller)
YOR, THE HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE (1983)- 3 (rewatch) (so bad its great)
AMAZONS VS. SUPERMEN (1975)- 3 (period superheroics with hidden tramolines, Three Stooges style antics, idiotic sound effects to make things ‘funny’- not my cup of tea)
HOME SICK (2006)- 2
BURN AFTER READING (2008)- 8 (classic Coen Brothers madcap humor)
DRACULA A.D. 72 (1972)- 5 (rewatch)
RIGHTEOUS KILL (2008)- 6 (not great but worth seeing- the equivalent of a trashy crime novel)
BARN OF THE NAKED DEAD (1974)- 3 (terrible but oddly kind of interesting)
CHOKE (2008)- 8 (funny and effective oddball tale-fine acting across the board)
HALLOWEEN 6 (1995)- 2 (what the hell?)
THE DAY THE WORLD ENDED (1956)- 4 (silly Roger Corman small scale apocalyptic tale- probably filmed over a single long weekend)
DOCTOR X (1933)- 6 (rewatch)

Also finally started watching British sci-fi show PRIMEVAL and its pretty good so far. A bit too slick and I'd love it if characters could have a conversation without walking around pointlessly but overall I like it. I'm interested to see where it goes.
