Day 5: THE WOLF MAN
The Lon Chaney Jr. classic is a bit of a staple during the Halloween season and has been reviewed previously on my blog. Coinciding with October's cycle of the full moon, it was the perfect choice for Day 5 in the challenge. With that said, it continues to stand up as a true classic and delivers on the emotional pain and genuine scares.

DAY 6 : HATCHET 3
The final installment of Adam Green original trilogy includes some funny
moments but ultimately lacks a bit if the charm in the original 2
films. Most jarring is the change in lead character Mary Beth (Danielle
Harris) who goes from heroine to bitch. From someone eager to end the
curse to someone who just doesn't seem to give a damn... And the result
is a bit anticlimactic. Still an enjoyable ride overall,and a few
surprised along the way. Derek Mears as the lead SWAT officer leads to a
memorable scene between veteran Jason performers, and Kane Hodder is as vicious as ever.
DAY 7: SLEEPWALKERS
Middling film based on a script by Stephen King. It's kind of a fun
story about Cat People (Bastets) moving to a small town and attempting
to survive by sucking the life essence from teen girls. There are plenty
of cameos but this is pretty much the tail end of Stephen King's first
"hey day" as a name in mainstream Hollywood films.
