31 Days of Horror – Update

Even though I already made my list I realized I had forgotten about one of my favorite franchises when I was a kid. CRITTERS! So instead of watching The Hollow, I’ll watch one of the Critters movies. The list is apt to morph and change between now and October.

31 Days of Horror

I’m tired of blogging about depressing topics, like how crappy my job is. (Which is funny because I used to be proud of my job and proud of the company I work for. I just asked a new hire how much he makes and he says $8.10. I make $7.75!)

So I decided that with it becoming September I would attempt in October once again the 31 Days of Horror! I even still have the old banner I made for last year. I haven’t decided on the movies yet, definitely going to watch at least 1 Alien movie, 1 Predator movie, Bait (with the sharks), a Sharknado, and maybe a Friday the 13th, a Leprechaun, a Nightmare on Elm street, a Halloween, at least one of all the classic, maybe a Scream, and maybe whatever else Netflix throws at me. I enjoy good horror movies that make me want to sleep with the lights on, and bad horror movies that make me make fun of them. I will watch Valentine’s Day with Jensen Ackles (I actually own it and never watched it.) So already I have 10 movies picked out, just need 21 more. I will live tweet the movies, you can follow me at @ExtrovertAlone and heckle me if you wish. Also suggestions for movies are welcome. I will also have a review of each movie after watching it.

I’m really looking forward to this again. It is a shame that last year I didn’t get to complete it.

31 Days of Horror – Day 1

31days1

First of all I was drunk and second of all I wound up watching my horror movie really late and went to bed before blogging about it which I’m grateful. I read some of my drunk texts last night and apparently I’ve made plans to meet up with friends on Saturday and Monday and buy them lunch.

I originally watched Don’t Blink because of the Doctor Who reference. Now that is the only similarity between this movie and Doctor Who. I live tweeted about as I watched it until  I was too drunk to work Twitter. I actually seemed to have gotten into a naughty DM conversation last night too.

Don’t Blink is a fun movie. The dialogue is great and they even have one character who seems to have seen horror movies before. Sad that no one listens to him. It is a lot of anger and a lot of spooky, very little blood and 0 gore. I recommend it to everyone, and it is available on Netflix.

Day 2’s movie will be Insidious.

The 50 Scariest Books of All Time

Some of these I’ve read, some I recognize, others I’ve never heard of. My goal is to read all these of books, maybe not this year, but all of them.

Flavorwire

The air is getting crisper, the nights are getting longer, and All Hallow’s Eve draws near. You know what that means: it’s time to curl up with a book guaranteed to give you the shivers — or at least make you check the locks twice. Here, for your horrifying pleasure, are 50 of the scariest books ever written in the English language, whether horror, nonfiction, or speculative futures you never want to see. One caveat: the list is limited to one book per author, so Stephen King fans will have to expand their horizons a little bit. Check out 50 books that will keep you up all night after the jump, and add any other scary favorites to the list in the comments.

The Call of Cthulhu by HP Lovecraft

The Call of Cthulhu by HP Lovecraft Illustrated by RJ Ivankovic
HP Lovecraft’s “The Call of Cthulhu,” by RJ Ivankovic

I have read the Lovecraft classic and I will admit that it is one of the few horror stories that while reading it, I paused, put the book down, looked over my shoulders to make sure nothing was behind me, and then continued to read. This version however is written and drawn in a way like Dr. Seuss books. I keep hoping this would actually get published into a book, as I would very much like to own it.
