Hooptober 5: First Bite (2018)

After years of missing the boat, I finally got onboard Cinemonster's annual Hooptober watch & review challenge, in its 5th incarnation.
Over half of these are 1st watches, and most of the rest are favorites and October staples.
10 'Anniversary Films' (Release years end in an 8, excluding 2018)
6 countries
6 decades
6 films from before 1970
6 films from the following: Romero, Cronenberg, Clive Barker, Terence Fischer, Sergio Martino, Bill Lustig (mix-and-match, or all one)
2 flying things that kill you films
1 silent film as a tribute to A Quiet Place
1 aquatic menace film as a tribute to Meg
2 women directed films
1 inanimate object comes alive film
1 film with Barbara Crampton in it
And 2 Tobe Hooper Films (There must ALWAYS be a Hooper film)
