Good News: Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!

I LOVE Halloween! It is my favorite holiday and if every week could have Halloween in it, I think the world would be a better place. So below I have created a list of fun media and things to enjoy on this great day.

ONE:

Zombies vs. Grad Students. This gem from PHD Comics says it all. Trust me, I’m an academic, I’ve been a grad student, and I so understand. It also makes me laugh.

TWO:

For some good scares/thrills I suggest:

  1. The Ring. Squee!!! If this movie doesn’t make you jump a few times well you are made of heartier stuff than I. Plus it is well made and a very cool story.
  2. Jennifer’s Body. Funny, scary, just plain good. Love it.!!

My wonderful husband suggests:

  1. The Thing – Original. He likes the others as well.
  2. Re-animator. He thinks it is one of the scariest he has ever seen.
  3. Halloween – Original.
  4. Nightmare on Elm Street – Original.
  5. Se7en. He told me the ending was so tense for him, he almost had to leave the theater.
  6. Alien and Aliens. I love my husband!!!
  7. Carrie – Original. Though we both liked the remake.
  8. The Shining – Original Movie. We also enjoyed the TV mini-series.
  9. Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte. Going Old School.
  10. Insidious. Yup.
  11. Oculus.

Movies we agreed upon individually without consulting one another:

  1. Crimson Peak. Ok, ok, so it isn’t a traditional horror flick but it is beautiful and it will make you jump in your seats. I so want to see this in theater again. Did I mention it is beautiful?
  2. The Exorcist. Wow. I love this movie. The terror creeps up on you. It is well made and a classic for a reason. Just watch.
  3. The Woman in Black. I still have to cover my eyes when I watch this. It is the scariest movie I have seen so far. Plus Hubby also rates it the scariest movie as I had ever seen due to the pain I caused him while watching the movie. We hold hands during movies and when the movie is scary I will squeeze and or jerk his hand really hard. For Woman in Black Hubby said he had to remove his wedding ring. He said he got 12 painful squeezes. I reminded him that I had covered my eyes for 20 minutes of the movie so his pain level was down. He was grateful. See CFR Review.

THREE:

For some good laughs/chuckles from Web shorts, I suggest:

  1. Hell No. This. I love it. I watch it often and it just makes me happy.
  2. If horror movies were realistic…. O.M.G. I love this so much I have to embed it so I can be sure you will see it. Logan Paul and team did a great job. I love all of their reactions. I love the woman who comes out with a box and helps with the beat down. I LOVE IT! Oh and the guy screaming with the gun? That would so be me.

FOUR:

In Nashville, Indiana the Brown County Playhouse likes to show the Rocky Horror Picture Show with a costume contest before hand. YAY! Hubby, friend Verna, and myself will be there. You all are welcome to join us. I mean what is better than Tim Curry singing “Sweet Transvestite”? Nothing. (See Chick Flicking Lists and Faves – Sexiest Moment on the Silver Screen.) It starts at 10pm with a Costume Contest beforehand!!! This is so exciting I have to post their write-up:

FIVE:

Costumes and Candy. Remember the best part about Halloween is dressing-up and getting candy. Or dressing-up and giving candy – as I like to do now. So do it! Plus remember that on November 1st, Halloween candy goes on half price so you can really gorge yourself. Wow. I actually wrote that.

Don’t forget the Brown County Playhouse Rocky Horror Picture Show. 🙂

Happy Halloween everyone!!
