There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the 31 Nights of Horror.
It’s one week away from 31 Nights of Horror 2014! If you’re new to Katie Loves Horror, welcome! Sorry I’m not sorry for my very dumb blog title.
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 film genre of any dimension. 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! I ain’t no professional film critic, just a super fan of horror. Play along, give me some love in the comments section, and join me in this epic journey to the beyond. Y’all enjoy now, ya hear?
Next stop, 31 Nights of Horror!
