31 Days of Halloween, Days 28-31

It's been a busy weekend, and I haven't had time to post (or watch many horror movies, for that matter...).  But I did do many things to celebrate Halloween so here they are! On Saturday morning I ran in the Costume Dash 5K, which was my only costumed event of this year.  My friend dressed … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween, Days 28-31

31 Days of Halloween, Day 27: The Fog (2005)

A rewatch for inspiring my upcoming Nanowrimo novel, which will involve mist and fog... This movie is surprising less about fog and more about people catching on fire and turning into mummies and ice?  Apparently the fog is so cold it freezes people?  The fog kinda reminds me of the sandstorm in The Mummy movies, … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween, Day 27: The Fog (2005)

31 Days of Halloween, Day 26: Dawn of the Dead (2004)

After mentioning this in my recommendations a few days ago, I realized it was high time to give this one a re-watch. This is still one of my favorite "the beginning of the apocalypse" scenes ever.  And then when they finally get to the mall and the Muzak version of "Don't Worry Be Happy" is … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween, Day 26: Dawn of the Dead (2004)

31 Days of Halloween, Day 25 – The Purge: Election Year

Somehow, this wasn't as frightening as the real-life election year we've got going on.  I had a hard time paying attention to the politicians debating Purge Night on something like the 20th year of its occurrence, until a car blasting Miley Cyrus's "Party in the USA" rolled down the middle of an empty street and … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween, Day 25 – The Purge: Election Year

31 Days of Halloween, Day 24: The Walking Dead

Daaaaaammmmmnnnn. Obviously, I am speaking about the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead.  This series has always had the ability to shock me, and this episode was no different.  I had suspected who was killed at the end of last season, and for about 20 minutes I thought I was safe.  Then, WRONG.  Super … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween, Day 24: The Walking Dead

31 Days of Halloween, Day 23 – The Shining

No matter how much Stephen King hates this adaptation of his book, I love it.  I also love the book form of The Shining, but they certainly are different animals. Right from the ominous music that plays as an otherwise innocent-looking Volkswagen drives through beautiful mountain landscapes, we know something is not right.  Something is … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween, Day 23 – The Shining

31 Days of Halloween, Day 22: It’s Alive

Whew, where to begin with this one!  Firstly, this is one of those horror movies trying to tell you a message, and the message is, "Birth control pills are bad!"  Lenore is pregnant with her second child after years of taking contraceptives, but something is different this time!  The baby is a monster! After the … Continue reading 31 Days of Halloween, Day 22: It’s Alive
