i need to make a list of *GOOD* horror movies… my friend and i decided that next month, we’ll be watching at least one movie a week in the spirit of autumn and halloween (and getting our friendship back on track). cold beers and spooky decorating is also on the agenda! as i said yesterday, i’ve been holding back so hard.
i have all year round horror posters on my bedroom walls and horror/halloween decor all over the place, though… so i always have my horror fix. i’ve got night of the living dead, several halloween posters, army of darkness (left), IT, misfits stuff, etc. – it’s funny, once i start decorating the living room, i start pulling stuff out of my room and it makes me all antsy that it’s not in there…
anyways, we were chatting about it and we both agreed that netflix’s horror section has been LE SUCKO lately. i’ve been trying to remember all of the old ones that i used to watch all the time, from when i worked at the video store (#RIP west coast video). like horrible, cheesy 80’s horror flicks. i don’t remember a lot of the names, but i do remember the cover boxes.
also: can we just talk about how when i worked at a video store and our favorites section held VHS tapes? lol (i’m so oldddddddd). i thought i had more horror in it, but i guess i was wrong. although, between my ex and i (below), we covered the good horror bases… i was just trying to remember what movies i had in mine, which apparently weren’t a lot of horror. i had the shining over a clockwork orange for kubrick on my favorites shelf, and then i remembered that my friend frank took that one. i remember battling my manager for “elizabeth” (with cate blanchette). we all had really similar tastes. i also think i wanted pet semetary, but my ex took it.
so far, on the list, we have… tales from the crypt (the tv series, i have the dvd’s), body bags, creepshow, the halloween series is a given (DUH), the paranormal activity series, hellraiser(s), the entity, and the evil dead movies are definitely in the queue. neeeeeeeed moarrrrrrrrrrrr!
