Plus it'll also help me meet this challenge on time for Halloween, since I started this challenge way too late this month.
So here's the quick rundown:
Day #8 - My Favorite Foreign Horror Movie
The Germans... they're just plain sick as I feel they go more for shock value. Can anyone say Human Centipede? (And no, I do not recommend this movie. *gag!*)
|Not your David Bowie's Labyrinth|
|Ophelia/Princess Moanna (Baquero)|
|Faun - friend or foe?|
This movie is in Spanish, so if you are illiterate, you'll be up the creek. Bring a friend and have them read the subtitles to you! This movie is not to be missed, even if you don't like horror.
Day 10 - A Horror Movie that Everyone Loves, but I Don't
The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Can't stand it. It's stupid. I don't even enjoy the music.
Go ahead, cast your stones. I'll take it as long as I don't have to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show. That would be real torture.
Day 24 - A Horror Movie Character that Describes Me
|Halloween's Laurie Strode (Curtis)|
|Elm Street's Nancy Thompson (Langenkamp)|
But I'm probably more of a Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Feisty and resourceful, even when she's scared - mainly because what has feared her has also hurt her. She's ready to fight, with fear in her eyes.
And what a smart ass.
Day 25 - Favorite Christmas/Holiday Horror Movie
|"I killed it..."|
And as far as I'm concerned Valentine's Day is a horror movie. It's not a holiday at all. Blech!
|Magueys roasting on an open fire...|
And of course, the movie ends bittersweet... much like how some of us feel after Christmas.
Day 26 - A Horror Movie for a Chicken
Well, I would probably suggest the above mentioned, Gremlins or The Nightmare before Christmas. Another option would be one of the horror classics like Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, or maybe even Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. *snicker*
Beetlejuice? Maybe Tim Burton is too dark.
Day 28 - A Horror Movie I'd Like to See Remade/Rebooted
Dawn of the Dead).
If it's not broke, don't fix it. Hollywood, you have become stale with your lame and lazy attempts to entertain us - and this no longer just pertains to horror anymore. They are remaking everything! Just stop. If you can't come up with an original idea then don't put anything out. We are all pretty content with what the masterminds did already. We can live without you and your waste of time and money.
Now, I will spend quality time with each and every entry now....
Onto the challenge of this blog series!
