Horrorfest 2007

et cetera, et cetera, et cetera

I never thought I'd see the day where 6 White Castles filled me up. She's happened, and that may be more horrifying than the fact that we watched 4 scary movies in the same night.

Since I've been boasting about all the horror movies I've compiled throughout the last month, Emily caught wind and wanted to have a scary movie night. So, I obliged last night and let me tell you, it was more than either of us bargained for.

Going in, I figured it'd be a simple 2-movie affair; she'd pick one and I'd pick one that properly contrasted the one she picked. So, since we watched the old 60s version of 'Night of the Living Dead' first, I decided to pop in 'The Descent' - a more modern movie with more modern shocks and monsters. Well, after the success of 'Night of the Living Dead' - coupled with the fact that I've been talking up the original 'Halloween' movie, thereby making the choice between it and 'The Descent' a difficult one - a potential third movie was floated out there as a possibility. Well, after 'The Descent' did its job, that third movie was a reality. After 'Halloween', I think we both simply lost our minds and threw in a fourth - 'Alien'. After that - and the White Castle for me, and the Slurpee, and the candy, and the tea, and the beer, and the cheetos - I'd had it. My eyes would stay open no longer.

Nevertheless, Horrorfest 2007 was a rousing success. I'm hereby proposing next year a marathon of the first 6 Nightmare on Elm Street movies. We'll see if they still have the same zing they did when I was a kid though.

Today, I'm doing tons of laundry and getting to the gym sometime before it closes. Other than that, who knows? I'm out of work for at least Monday - since I did three weeks' worth of work in one week - so I might go see a late-night movie later on tonight. Definitely NOT going to be watching any football games today. Definitely NOT going to be watching a certain so-called football team from Seattle. That's for DAMN sure.
