September 23 in Goth and Horror History

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride Blu-Ray, $7.99 on Amazon

September 23, 2005 - Corpse Bride - Movie - Released

I was terribly disappointed by this movie (and surprisingly haven't watched it since I bought it on Blu-Ray ages ago) but it still belongs in the goth movie canon. Not just by virtue of being a Tim Burton movie, but it definitely has the mood, look and feel that it should. I just found it quite boring.. and the music didn't stick in my head for days afterwards like the Nightmare Before Christmas music did.

September 22 in Goth and Horror History

Se7en Blu-Ray, $9.99 on Amazon

September 22, 1995 - Se7en - Movie - Released

Not quite a horror movie, this dark film about serial killers is one of my favorite movies ever. Some scenes are too gross even for me. Kevin Spacey's performance was awesome, too.

September 19 in Goth and Horror History

Underworld Blu-Ray, $9.73 on Amazon

September 19, 2003 - Underworld - Movie - Released

September 19, 2008 - Igor - Movie - Released

I had such high hopes for Igor, with my favorite actor ( John Cusack) doing the main voice. Soooo disappointing. Meanwhile, Underworld was pretty enjoyable, though I could do without the many sequels. I remember how amazing the Underworld trailer was - beautiful and really made me excited to see the film.

The Addams Family: The Complete Series, $37.99 on Amazon

September 18, 1963 - The Haunting - Movie - Released

September 18, 1964 - The Addams Family - TV Show - Premiered

September 18, 1987 - Hellraiser - Movie - Released

My parents weren't interested in watching The Addams Family when it came out, because it "looked too weird" and "was probably Satanic." (See what I had to grow up with? Sigh).

The Haunting, based on a Shirley Jackson novel, has since been remade several times.

Meanwhile, Hellraiser was probably the scariest, grossest movie I had ever seen in the theater at the time. (Yes, I'm that ancient an eldergoth, I saw this in theaters).

The Prophecy DVD, on Amazon

September 1, 1922 - Yvonne de Carlo - Actress - Born

September 1, 1995 - The Prophecy - Movie - Released

Yvonne de Carlo was best known for playing Lily Munster. I really enjoyed The Prophecy, but not its many sequels. Christopher Walken and Eric Stoltz in the same movie? With Viggo Mortenson as Lucifer? Awesome.
