Happy Friday, everyone! I’m excited for the weekend, aren’t you? It starts as early as tonight while attending an awarding ceremony for a blogger contest. We might hopefully spend some time getting on the Halloween mood by watching horror flicks while munching on popcorn. Sunday morning is B’s run event where I’ll be his official cheerleader slash water girl. And afternoon will be spent on an exciting festivity for the Belle de Jour fair. I hope to get a chance to spend time in our home with mom and discuss what will be our holiday theme. What is your holiday planning so far?

The weather isn’t exactly going to be the best due to another typhoon entering the country, but I wish you the warmest of time with your loved ones, movies and popcorn on rainy days, and stormy weather fun for your weekend.

Hooray Thursday: Horror Films

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
