Happy Halloween!...

Arise the Dark Side! -:)


Ride like hell and never look back...



"What is this that stands before me?
Figure in black which points at me
Turn around quick, and start to run
Find out I'm the chosen one
Oh no

Big black shape with eyes of fire
Telling people their desire
Satan's sitting there, he's smiling
Watches those flames get higher and higher
Oh no, no, please God help me

Is it the end, my friend?
Satan's coming 'round the bend
people running 'cause they're scared
The people better go and beware
No, no, please, no"




In Edinburgh this evening then home and out later on the bike for a spin around the woods as always on Halloween...
Keeping a look out for Satan and all his henchmen...

Werewolves..
.

Zombies...

And Trolls...

My WW2 Silver Nazi Spoon, Infrared Magicshine torch, non belief in God,  and some Black Sabbeth on the I Pod should keep me safe... -:)

Halloween, Ride like hell and never look back...



"never look back..." my motto for solo night riding!,
Some folk i know say they would never go night riding on there own down in woods,
i love it, growing up on an old estate with no street lighting and helping out at the estate gamekeepers meant i was often out and about in the woods at night. thinks that go crunch and snap twigs in the dark were just deer or rabbits etc...
A shriek of an owl or the shining eyes of a field of sheep or cattle could spook some people i imagine,


I love the early Gothic Hammer Horror colour films of the late 1950s to 1970s,
They often used to be shown on BBC2 on Saturday nights, films that made Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing famous...


Not that scary to watch today but filmed in amazing colours and i like the sets of eastern European locations (sets made and shot in England),
and then always those pale skin straight haired Gothic girls (with a bit of cleavage) kept you watching late into the early hours...

Girls like Ingrid Pitt...



Not sure how many Hammer films were made, but whole series of the story's of Frankenstein, Dracula, werewolves, mummy's, zombies, Jekyll and Hyde etc...














Wow...


From the same era is The 1967 Roman Polanski comedy horror film: 'The Fearless Vampire Killers, some clips are on youtube to watch, The Gothic girl this time is Sharon Tate,

Trailer...


A gruesome film from 1974...


A 1980 classic which is a must see for all coastriders...


`Halloween` started a `slasher` movie theme through the 80s and 90s...


Then all the classic Teen Horror series, mostly with a comic horror scene...
The classic `Evil Dead` series...


The 1980s saw the start of `Freddy Krueger` in `Nightmare on Elmstreet` series...


Here is the original trailer...


`The Lost Boys` in 1987...


`Scream` series...


But topping them all is the classic Teen horror comedy:

`Scary movie`... lol


Some recent films like the `Saw` series and `Hostel` take a bit stomach to watch and for me are a bit too much on the torture and butchering side,
However there is one real chilling film, based on true events that happened in the Aussie Outback...

`Wolf Creek`...



CGI has changed films forever now, though many are way over the top some cool films were released through the 90s and 2000s which, if you don`t take too seriously are entertaining,

Werewolves and Vampires?,
`Underworld` Trilogy with Kate Beckinsale is worth watching...


Zombies?,
One of my favourite films, `28 Days Later`...


What must be the biggest profit making lowest budget movie was `Blair Witch Progect` released in 1999,
A Story of three student filmmakers who hiked into the Black Hills near Burkittsville, Maryland in 1994 to film a documentary about a local legend known as the Blair Witch, and disappeared. the three were never seen or heard from again,
Their video and sound equipment (along with most of the footage they shot) was discovered a year later. This "recovered footage" is presented as the film the viewer is watching.
if not liked by many folk, it is still a very clever made film...



But if you don`t giggle too much at men in costumes and low budgets there are some cracking new films out there, loosely based on Black comedy in a way these films have more in common with those old early colour Hammer Films than Hollywood block busters, don`t take them too seriously and enjoy the sets and characters...

Shot on location in Glen Affric in Scotland was `Dog Soldiers`,
An army exercise goes badly wrong when a unit on a training exercise are bated by Special Ops who use them to try to lure and capture a family of werewolves who live in a remote Highland Glen, it all goes wrong once the moon comes out, and the team have to fight for there lives, besieged in a farm house...


Some new Norwegian films,
This is a recent class horror made in a 1980s (fight to survive) style!,
Teenagers on a snow sports holiday upset some Zombie Nazis out for a feast...
EIN ZWEI DIE! "i told you we should have went to the beach" Lol...

`Dead Snow`...


This i have not seen yet, awaiting release on DVD, Trolls are now the latest horror creature to be revived... "They can smell Christians..."

`The Troll Hunter`...


Plenty to keep your mind occupied and heart rate pumping cycling through the woods alone tonight....
Im prepared, got my 2 Magicshine 872 lights, 3200 Lumens should blind any trolls...


And `Haribo Horror` mix i can feed to any zombies, time they chew through them i will be long gone...
