Hooray Thursday: Horror Films

Post Content

White lady costumes and creepy masks aside, Halloween is a time to revel in all that is drop-dead scary. Most of us might not be a fan of gore and screaming scary antics, but come October 31st, we might also be the first in line at a grown-up Halloween festivities just for the seasonal thrill of it (it’s OK, we don’t judge.) Or snuggle at home, triple-check the door locks, watch movies that cause dread and alarm, to invoke our hidden worst fears and guarantee heart-pumping moments and bloodcurdling nightmares in the nights ahead.

With that said, here’s a variety of films that promise to frighten and cause panic. Whatever keeps you up at night, you’re sure to find something here.

Rosemary’s Baby (1968) Directed by Roman Polanski. Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow), a bright but somewhat naive young housewife, and Guy (John Cassavetes), her husband and a struggling actor, move into the Bramford, a Gothic, 19th century New York City apartment building with a history of unsavory tenants and mysterious events.

Child’s Play (1988) Directed by Tom Holland. While being chased by Detective Mike Norris (Chris Sarandon), Charles Lee Ray, a serial killer known as “The Lakeshore Strangler” (Brad Dourif), is shot and mortally wounded. Before dying, Charles takes cover inside a toy store, finding boxes of talking “Good Guy” dolls and then uses a voodoo ritual to transfer his soul into one of the dolls.

Looking in the same direction

To the one person who makes everyday much more exciting and makes all my whimsical dreams seem like a piece of cake, thank you! Happy happy happy to you!

The Happy List: Weekend Rendezvous

Post Content

Hello folks! How was your weekend? I, personally, had a blast during a fun-filled weekend. My B (surprisingly) got out of office (last Friday) earlier than usual and we’re able to travel home to the white house. He surprised me with Krispy Kreme tin can (and sweet donuts) to add to my collection and I couldn’t be more happier. Catching up with him after a long and busy week on our way home was such a fun fun time (showbiz news, anyone?). Saturday and Sunday were spent going to thrift stores to unearth some treasures (jackpot finds as B would call it), driving around town, McDo drive-thru breakfast (Twister Fries is back!), running market errands, wrapping gifts (B did) for his nieces and nephew, delivering the gifts and playing with the kids & baby Zsi-Zsi and eating plus eating plus more eating good food.

Hope you all had a fun weekend to recharge you for yet another busy-happy week ahead! Here’s my happy list posted a day delayed. Smile!
