Ghoulfriend In A Coma

27 10 2007

In keeping with our horror/Halloween thread for no other reason than it gives me joy, here are some things to keep you titillated through the pre-Halloween weekend.

And, no you cannot watch “Failure to Launch” or you will be haunted by dirty, zombie raccoons who will come over to your house and terrorize your cat and pet turtle.

First of all, Hollywood Ron has some great horror movie reviews over at Subtle Bluntness. I love this line in his review of “Dracula 2000”:

To call this film abysmal is to malign abysses throughout the country. To say this film sucks is an offense to every other film that’s ever sucked. This movie, even with the 0 skulls it earned, somehow manages to be offensive even to Living Corpse’s rank of terrible bombs. To say this film really is that bad is an understatement, but…

It really is THAT bad. I watched it for free without anyone else knowing that I did, and I still felt dirty, cheated, raped, and ripped off. I wanted back money I didn’t spend.

Now, Crypto Joe, also known in political circles as Cuppa, takes us to the world of vampires, one that he and I are both fond of:

I like vampire movies, meaning they do not scare me. I enjoy them. A movie which scares me is something like “Steel Magnolias”. The thought of having to watch that movie makes me shiver with revulsion.

And this leads to a question for all of you — what is your favorite vampire movie? Who has done the best job onscreen of being a vamp? A quick search for ‘vampire’ at IMDB reveals thousands of movies to pick from.

How many parents named their daughters “Shelby” after that movie? Too many, if you ask me.

Entertainment Weekly lists its top 20 scariest movies, although I think Horror movie fans will enjoy the list over at Retro Crush a bit better.

And, just for the hell of it, head over to Ghost Study to see pictures of ghosts like this one with a ghoul in the television.

[…] Newscoma and Cuppa Joe are celebrating Halloween with scary movies this weekend. I’m not a big fan of horror films. Life is scary enough. I’ve had to deal with real gore and know that I react on auto-pilot until the crisis passes and then collapse into a puddle of weeping goo. Why would I deliberately make myself feel uncomfortable? If I get sucked into watching something creepy, Doug knows he’s going to spend the night being awakened every few minutes and sent to look for the source of every noise I imagine hearing. Still, I do have a few guilty pleasures that fall under the Halloween category. Some scary, some campy and some that are just plain embarrassing. My Halloween movie fest includes: Ghost Story The Lady in White Shaun of the Dead The Frighteners Poltergeist Fright Night Lost Boys An American Werewolf in London House No Comments so far Leave a comment Line and paragraph breaks automatic, e-mail address never displayed, HTML allowed: <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <code> <em> <i> <strike> <strong> […]

I’m thrilled you like the old review, Coma! I’m trying to save as many of the old ones as I can, just in case the LC archives goes offline.

Ron, your reviews are a lot of fun. You can tell you like horror movies, like I do.
I just think they are great.
