Last year, I sent out a bat signal on Facebook and Twitter, asking people what horror films I should watch as a complete newbie and certified giant chicken. I got a few responses, which led me to now one of my favorite movies, Train to Busan, further had me falling in love with Gong Yoo, and also introduced me to the disappointing Cabin in the Woods (Joss Whedon has lost his luster for so many reasons, and I’m not going to apologize for it).
Plus, look at Gong Yoo.
LOOK. AT. HIM.
Anyway, I’m going to use the month of October as our forefathers would have wanted: to freak myself out just enough to entertain me but not enough to give me The Human Centipede nightmares. My primary platform for this is going to be Twitter because I have so much fun live-tweeting things, but depending on how I feel about some of the movies I watch, I may write up a critique or something. I’m not making any promises here, especially considering I’m 1) working full time, 2) just started class, and 3) maintaining a blog, even as sporadically as I do, is work, y’all.
I already have a couple of movies that I know I’m going to watch (listed below), but if you have any suggestions? Please comment below!
- Night of the Living Dead
- Get Out
- An American Werewolf in London
- The Babadook
- The Conjuring
ETA: Do not leave me any body horror movies. I am not there yet, and I have doubts that I ever will be kthx.
