Scary Movie – 28 DAYS LATER (!!!)

Okay, I purposely avoided information about this movie so that I would receive it in the purest possible form. And I WAS NOT disappointed. Since everyone in the world has seen it besides me, I’m going to go ahead and talk about ~everything~ (SPOILER ALERT). Firstly, I have to say that 28 Days Later did not leave me *scared* the […]

Scary Movie – PHENOMENA

YES! YES! YES! (Ignore the stupid American title, PHENOMENA is best!!) OMG, let me first say that I came to this movie QUITE reluctantly.

And then I found out it was directed by Bob Clark of A Christmas Story (which previously trampled Miracle on 34th Street as my FAVORITE X-MAS MOVIE EVER), which made […]

October 1st ~ Scaray Movie Beginnings!

Welcome to the FIRST POST in what I hope will be a series cataloging my October SCARAY MOVIE-watching experience. But okay, I’ll point out the obvious. We didn’t get off to the greatest start. I had put this in the queue several months back, inspired by a trip to the REAL Stanley Hotel: You will immediately note that […]
