Oh the Horror

You may know of my love of the horror genre. I am a nut over all things creepy & scary. My favorite movie of all time is 28 Days Later (followed verrrrry closely by A Patch of Blue with Sidney Poitier and To Kill a Mockingbird).

So in addition to my brother's Fangoria magazines, there is one particularly cheesy video from 1986 to which I can attribute my infatuation. Scared the bejesus out of me at the time-- mainly the part where they find the bodies. Now it scares me for a whole set of different reasons (eesh, the 80s are scary in their own right). Anyone remember this one-hit wonder?

A couple more things are making me giddy. NBC's new show on Thursday nights called Fear Itself. Each week is a mini movie from different horror directors/writers. I must say, it was pretty good.

Also, I think I mentioned I watched Season 1 of Dexter which was on CBS. Well, I couldn't wait for Season 2 to be released on DVD in August, so I downloaded all the episodes on Amazon Unbox and watched all 12 in like 3-1/2 days. SOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOD. Pam, you were right! It was great.

Oh, also Ryan bought me The Orphanage for Mother's Day. Niiiiice, right?

Can't wait to see M. Night's new one too. Not so much horror, but creepy nonetheless.

Good golly, I forgot all about that fear itself thing. What time slot is it in?

I did see swingtown though, the vintage stuff was fun.

Holy cow that video is creepy. And yes, the 80's. Lets not go there.

Glad you loved Dexter. I mean really, didn't the second season seem more intense? That whole coworker in a cage thing CRACKED ME UP. Like somehow I'd like to work that into my regular vocabulary.

We finally watched The Orphanage -- seriously creepy, and the best horror film I've seen in a long time.

Didn't like Dexter much, although I only watched a couple of episodes. I'd read the book first.
