I'm not liking the book as much as I hoped I would but maybe it will be better as a book. I don't like reality TV and there is something about an 8-year-old protagonist that kind of grates on my nerves. BUUUTTT, it's still scary and has some great scenes. I have hope for the movie. <BR> <BR> <link><BR>-deal-scott-cooper-horror-head-full-gh<BR>osts-margaret-qualle... Wed, 25 Mar 2020 21:10:28 EST Dead Set It's eviction night at the Big Brother house, but something very strange is happening; the dead are coming alive and attacking the living. When zombies attack all of the audience outside, the Big Brother contestants are unaware of the death outside the fan-proof (and zombie-proof) big brother house until the show's runner, Kelly, comes into the house and warns them of the doom outside. Stuck with even less contact with the outside world, the house-mates must sneak out of the house to get supp... Tue, 24 Mar 2020 12:06:45 EST Weekend movies 3/21-3/22 Some silly movies for today.

Although child zombies might be tough for some to watch. I laughed at the description, because it kind of just sounds like another day in middle school.

I've been M.I.A for a bit but I'm making my way back. I thought today I would ask what is your favorite horror/suspense/thriller/mystery book made into a movie? If you can't pick one, maybe your top 3. <BR> <BR> I really like "Bram Stoker's Dracula" from 1992. It's very well made. But I would say the ultimate is "The Exorcist." It really captures the horror of the book. Wed, 12 Feb 2020 17:09:28 EST Luna Nera Cool Italian Witchcraft show on Netflix.

If you don't like silly movies and/or zombie movies this one is not for you. I enjoy both silly and zombie movies and this one is a little much even for me. I do like Ian Ziering though.

I have not yet seen the season with her but I'm working on it. Last night I started watching the Roanoke season. It's good. I really like it. I'm also really excited that the next season is 1984. I hope it's done in the vein of 80s slasher films. <BR> <BR> Lange explains why she agreed to return. Also, fair warning, it has SPOILERS. <BR> <BR> <link>https://www....

Mon, 12 Aug 2019 16:34:54 EST QOTD 8/11 A question for today instead of a movie post. <BR> <BR> It used to be we had to watch movies at the theatre or wait a really long time for them to come to network tv. Then there was cable - premium channels that aired movies way sooner than network tv ever had. Then there were VCRs to bridge the gap and we could buy or rent movies we missed in the theatre. Now we have so many options. We can still rent or purchase movies in whatever format we like (dvd, bluray, digital), we can choose to... Sun, 11 Aug 2019 11:52:16 EST 8/10 Danny Trejo So...

Mon, 5 Aug 2019 11:04:41 EST 8/4 3-Headed Shark Attack Another shark movie today. 3-Headed Shark Attack. I haven't seen this one, but I want to. Mostly because Danny Trejo is in it. <BR> <BR> "As a mutated, three-headed, great white shark eats its way from one end of the ship to the next, the passengers have to fight the deadly predator using anything they can find." - IMBD <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Sun, 4 Aug 2019 10:44:49 EST 8/3 Sharknado In honor of shark week, today's movie is Sharknado. This franchise got sillier and less believable as it went on (and that's really saying something when you consider the premise). By the end I was ready for it to be done - but I did love the first one. <BR> <BR> "When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, nature's deadliest killer rules sea, land, and air as thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace." - IMBD <BR> <BR> <link><BR>/videopla...

Look at real bodies, before and after shots, and real women. <BR> <BR> We have to be aware of our expectations. We see so many pictures of Hollywood stars or even real people who have surgery, work to be someone they aren't, or pain themselves until they are unrecognizable. <BR> <BR> We have to consider our: <BR> -genetics <BR> -surgeries we have had that change our bodies <BR...

It's not something that sticks with us - like out thighs stick to chairs in the summer. <BR> <BR> Motivation has to be a conscious decision. We have to cultivate it. It's where I go wrong. <BR> <BR> What motivates you? You might have to sit with that one and think it through. It's worth it, though. <BR> <BR> Here's a few things that get me excited.

Black Christmas is getting ANOTHER remake! <BR> <BR> It's my little tradition to watch Black Christmas (the first one) while having treats sitting in the living room with my Christmas tree right before the kids have winter break from school. It's just me and pets and Black Christmas. Kinda nuts, I know, but it's my thing. Sometimes I watch both versions.

I really hope the movie doesn't focus too much on The Shinning because what made the book great was that it was a totally different story. And, I liked the story because it was really sweet. I liked seeing the way Danny coped with the aftermath of what happened and his gift. I hope it focuses on that. <BR> <BR> <link><BR>TFvhkU4 </link> Tue, 18 Jun 2019 14:07:12 EST Suspiria Have you checked out the remake of Suspiria?

Kids at a summer camp, alien invasion, fate of the world left up to some outcast kids, facing their personal demons. Pick a horror trope and it's probably there - it's like a shout out to past horror movies. So many scenes were reminiscent of other movies, but done without seeming forced.

As I read on, I found that it wasn't due to the film being scary, but incredibly violent. <BR> <BR> This film is about part of Australia's dark past. I wasn't aware of this at all.

I was really busy all day yesterday and did not have time. <BR> <BR> Today I thought I would ask a question. Dracula has probably spawned more horror movies than any other book character in history.
