Horrorpalooza

I wrote about 29 horror movies. I got behind. My friend Melissa had to step in and write one. Three things:

~I love horror movies. But after the first week I started to feel super weird. Like, everyone was secretly a murderer weird.

~I wonder about the mentality of the kind of person who directs horror movies, one after the other. They must feel super weird too, like, all the time.

~I have a much lower threshold for gore than I thought.

Some statistics:

Most viewed movie here: Se7en

Most disturbing movie I watched all month, and probably ever in my life: The Last House on the Left

Most fun one to watch and write about: The Funhouse, tied with Rosemary’s Baby

The one I’m kind of pissed off at for being so insanely fucking creepy: Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

I’m honestly glad it’s November. Love poems, rainbows and unicorns coming next.
