Rise and shine, readers. You’re probably wondering where you are. I’ll tell you where you might be. You might be on the blog you die in (I mean, from awesomeness). Up until now you simply sat in the shadows watching others live out their lives. But what do voyeurs see when they look into the mirror? Now, I see you as a strange mix of someone angry, yet apathetic. But mostly just pathetic. So are you going to watch yourself die today, readers, or do something about it?
Welcome to the 2013 31 Nights of Horror blog! [Applause].
Starting October 1 you’ll get a fresh review from some well known, obscure, foreign, family friendly, and/or totally cheesy horror films. AKA my most favoritest genre of the entire solar system.
Here’s how it works:
- I watch a movie. It might be one you’ve seen 1,000 times. It might be one you’ve never heard of. It might be really bizarre, gory, disturbing. It might be an episode of the Walking Dead. There’s a good chance I’ll involve Disney movies. There’s zero chance of sparkly vampires.
- I’ll write a three sentence review about it. That’s it. None of this “Pitchfork” style full-page, flowery language like here. “paranoid sawtooth synths” I mean what?! (OKAY – I love Pitchfork. But their reviews make me giggle a little. Also – Yeezus, man.)
- You comment and tell me what you think. Or what your favorite horror related media might be. Or what you suggest. Or maybe I’ll ask… DISCUSSION QUESTIONS!!!
- Maybe I’ll throw in some bonus features like Halloween recipes or decorating tips or scary music videos. Maybe I won’t.
And that’s it! No, I’m not a professional film reviewer. I took one film class in college. I probably won’t be exploring themes and cultural implications and whatever people much smarter than me discuss. I just genuinely love horror movies and I’d like to share my passion with you. And hear about your favorites.
Seriously, y’all. It’s nearly Halloween season and I can’t contain my excitement. Join me on this epic journey through haunted houses, dark waters, slasher infested forests and whatever the hell is going on in “Audition”.
Horror fans, curious outsiders, friends and family of scary movie addicts, it’s time to come together!
We all go a little mad sometimes,
