Happy Halloween!

Let's talk about horror movies. As a kid, I was always afraid of them. I loved the Universal Dracula and Frankenstein but I stayed far away from Friday the 13th and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I watched Nightmare on Elm Street in high school but was still a big wussy.

But now I'm an adult. Now I'm sophisticated. Now I love Evil Dead.

Here's my favorite clip from Evil Dead 2. By this point, the evil spirits in the house have killed Bruce Campbell's girlfriend and made him chop off his own hand. Now it's going to pick on him. What follows is probably the silliest and wierdest moment in horror movie history.

And this is just indulgent. Here's the famous "boomstick" speech from Army of Darkness. I first saw this on a blind date in college. I had no idea it was the sequel to Evil Dead 2. I had no idea what was going on.

Seven years later I caught it on Sci-Fi and it became my favorite movie. Go watch your favorite movie today. Your favorite movie of blood!!!!!

TCM channel hosted a fright-fest this weekend -- my first view of Hellraiser (can you believe it's 20 years old already??). Friday the 13th is still scary shit. Kudos to the excellent art in horror movie masks and makeup.

I would like to thank the boys of Lawhlor Hall for introducing me to this movie via 3am repeated viewings....I am a stronger woman today for being able to quote most of these movies!

Shop Smart!
