31 Nights of Horror IX, Late Wrap-Up

Hi everyone! Whew, 2020 amirite? I actually got married on Halloween! It was so perfect. Unfortunately I was one of those Corona Brides that had to postpone their wedding (twice). So when we had to postpone it for the second time, we were like “Screw it, let’s get married on Halloween!” It was perfect and I will definitely write a post all about it. But! It definitely caused me to fall behind on my 31 Nights of Horror posts. That, plus election anxiety and just existential dread in general from this year. Then I got the ol’ Rona and it knocked me out for a bit. Losing your sense of smell is – bizarre.

So here are the final few movies I watched!

Night 25: Tremors: Shrieker Island! I honestly hope they make 50 Tremors movies I will watch them all. S s s spoiler alert; with that ending, I don’t know if they will or can!! 

Night 26: Maleficent! This night was for my scaredy-friends who do not like horror. It was my first time watching Maleficent, and I was planning to be her for Halloween so I needed to watch it. Man, ol’ Mal was just love scorned! Typical dudes ruining everything. Take my wings? I take your baby!

Night 27: 30 Days of Night: I just learned that the makers of this film created an entirely new language for this movie. It makes sense of course, but my dumb American brain assumed it was something that already existed haha. Anyway I stand by loving this movie. I don’t always love vampire flicks but I love this one. The vampires don’t follow any conventional vampire rules and just bust through windows. I love love love Mark Boone Junior. And Ben Foster is supremely creepy. So what that the ending is weird. It’s a great action horror flick.

Night 28: MANIAC COP (1987). Bruce Campbell. Nuff said.

Night 29: The Mortuary Collection. Wow this was a fun anthology!! I have not seen a really solid anthology film in years. Highly recommended. Clancy Brown, y’all.

Night 30: The Purge: Season Two: As I said before I am a huge fan of the Purge universe bc of its infinite story line potential. Season two was a fun, interconnected tale of what happens when it’s not Purge night and the events leading up to it. Characters were fun to follow along with on their Purge journey and like in season one, I loved the intros to each episode which feature kooky Purge realities like what the day after the Purge cleaning crew does and the audition for the famous Purge announcement. Love that. Look, it’s not Hannibal or Breaking Bad or whatever but it’s enjoyable for what it is. I look forward to season 3!

Night 31: As always, Trick ‘r Treat. Sam had a great night. We did too.
