Horror Movie Loneliness… or Lusting for Demons

October 20, 2008 at 8:38 am 4 comments

It’s Halloween and between the economy and the political discord that is my household, I need a good Halloween movie diversion.  Let me just start out by saying that I love horror movies.  Good ones, decent ones, and even, on occassion, just plain bad ones.  The bad ones aren’t scary so much as kind of comical in a strangely campy way and can be fun if one is in the right mood.   But tonight I really want to watch a good one.  And ones that I haven’t already seen a bunch of times are really pretty hard to find.

I come by my love of horror naturally, from my mother.  Though in all honesty I don’t know that she actually loved it.  She just really hated Disney movies and rather than take me to see those she’d take me to see things like “The Amityville Horror” or “The Changeling” (the scary one, not the Angelina one which, if scary, would be scary for a completely different reason).  I remember watching “The Exorcist” around the age of nine or so, and watched “Salem’s Lot” when it first came on as a mini-series with David Soul.  I read anything and everything that was reasonably scary and to this day I’d much rather read a great supernatural horror novel than anything else.  Yes, I prefer supernatural but will take a decent serial killer too, just leave me out of the alien horror most of the time.   But I’m having difficulty finding good horror that I haven’t already seen.  Anyone know of a good supernatural horror movie that will be a good addition to my horror movie love?  I’m all ears… well not really but in a horror movie — I COULD be all ears.  Really.  Suggestions?

    I’m curious to know what you think about the new House movie trailer. It has some interesting takes on relationships in that movie.

    I just watched the trailer and it looks interesting. I have read some of Frank Peretti’s books, but have not read that one. I’ll definitely be going to see it in the theater, but I’m a bit surprised and disappointed that it isn’t coming out on Halloween. Seems odd to hold it off one more week to November 7th…

    There was an old Addams Family where the wife said “Oh, Gomez, you’re all thumbs,” and he replied “Interesting concept!” But I think all ears is even more interesting.

    I don’t know of any supernatural horror movies out right now. Seems like we’re stuck in zombie movie hell for now, but I suppose one could always go back and watch things like The Omen and Rosemary’s Baby.

    I keep scanning the 500 channels of satellite TV for something worthwhile to watch, and there’s really nothing. You’d think Halloween would convince the station directions to empty their vaults of every good, back and schlocky horror movie ever made and we could spend entire weekends watching nothing but horror movies, but no. It’s all reality shows. I’m waiting for a reality show about reality shows…

    “Constantine” is coming on satellite TV here pretty quick. I’ve never seen it, but the fact that it’s based on a comic book and stars Keanu Reeves doesn’t reassure me. But it might be better than Billy Madison, which I argue to be the most irritating movie ever.
