TCM Canon: Horror Edition!
Here’s the deal. I really wanted to do something epic for Halloween this year, just didn’t get it off the ground in time. Next year, I look to realize my Horror-themed segment and I hope all of you will participate when the time comes…
Now, that being said, I couldn’t let this, my first October as a blogger pass without doing something to celebrate my favourite holiday. Now, with that in mind, I present to you…
My Canon: Horror Edition!
The rules are very simple. I will post a picture of a horror film that ranks inside my personal top 10 and the first person to guess the title of the film correctly will win. If after the first hour no one arrives at the answer, I will add another, more detailed picture. If the second hour passes without a winner, a third and final image will be added to assist in surmising an answer. All guesses can be posted in the comment section below or to me on twitter (@cinema_monster).
Halloween, like I said, is my favourite holiday. I love candy, costumes, and most of all, horror films. I’ve seen so many that I’ve lost count. Nothing would make me happier than to share my viewing experiences and knowledge with you all. So I conjured up this segment to help spread the word about lesser known films, provide recommendations to those who are looking, and assist new cinephiles looking for the best the genre has to offer.
This segment will run until October 31, so reviews will be pushed to the back burner till then. The Gushing Cinephile and The Guest List will still be posted as scheduled. Also, I am looking to broaden my Horror resume, so any and all recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
Without further ado, here’s the first image!
Here’s, the second image, since it’s been a little over an hour without a correct guess…
And finally, the last image….
Congratulations to Nick from The Cinematic Katzenjammer for guessing “The Descent!”

Great idea for a post (or posts) but I have no clue what the film is…yet!
What Vic said lol
Lol, good. I was worried it’d be too easy.
Thanks Vic! I tried to make the first image the hardest. As the hours progress, it’ll become easier .
Is it I Saw the Devil??
I am sorry my friend, it is not.
is there a new pic out yet?
Just posted…I guess it’s just for you seeing as no one is guessing lol.
What the hell? Has anyone seen this besides you?
The Descent , baby!
I’d like to point out I figured it out with only the first picture. but you know
Correct! What gave it away lol.
The leg bit was memorable lol.
Lol, fair enough. Well, thanks for playing…at least a couple of you did .
Also, great addition. One hell of a flick. part 2 wasn’t as good but still solid. Nothing beats the first though. So claustrophobic.
Thanks! Plenty more flicks to come . The Descent part 2 was decent, not as good as the first obviously. Still, took me by surprise how watchable it actually was.
Fuck, I’d of got it from the first image too. Do I get a prize?
LOL, maybe next time. I’ll be doing it for the next two weeks. Make sure to come back and beat all these suckers!
I like the idea for these posts! I hope that I am online to check them as they come
Thanks! I hope so too .
That was The Descent????? WOW –
Shit. I just saw this and still didn’t know it. I suck at these!
