party time.

horror flicks are a passion of mine.
and because the 21st-century has yet to put out a horror resembling anything even CLOSE to 'decent,'
here is a list of some MUST SEE films

1.  return of the living dead (1985): 'night of the living dead' is obvious.  if you want to see a killer sequel THISSSS is the one.  see nasty, naked 80s punks get theirs in a graveyard.  and the cramps are on the soundtrack.

2.  burnt offerings (1976):  while the plot and resolution contain some holes, this is one of my favourite haunted house horrors.  forget amityville.  the music is creepy as fuck, and the suspense is ACTUALLY suspenseful!  i know, go figure.  highlights include: bette davis, oliver reed, karen black!, limo driver guy and swimming pool scene(s).

3.  john carpenter's the thing (1982):  while the cast is all male, i don't classify this as a 'boy movie' because i like it!  you don't get much better than kurt russel in a snow storm (classic).  and the effects are truly spectacular.  when dealing with horror, i want to be grossed out.  and CG just don't cut it, folks.

4.  the howling (1981):  the mom from E.T. plays a lady anchorwoman who is stalked by a maniac and lures him into a 70s-style porno theatre.  she then retreats to a creepy camp that sorta reminds me of my trailer park for some werewolf-ery.  nudity and kinky werewolf sex abound.

5.  american werewolf in london (1981):  and speaking of werewolfs, this is also just one of my favourite MOVIES of all time!  it is just plain fun and campy and not to be confused with 'american werewolf in paris' (barf).

6.  sleepaway camp (1983):  i have been obsessed with this one since i was, like, 12.  it is just bizarre, chalk-full of strange sexual undertones.  you think it is just another 'friday', but by the end you are dead (haha) wrong.

7.  don't look now (1973):  if you can get your hands on this one... it features donald sutherland running all over venice looking for his dead daughter in her red rain slicker.  perhaps the creepy-est!

8.  carnival of souls (1962):  this one is extremely strange.  features a really weird girl carwreck survivor, a ghoulish carnival and some seriously killer organ music.

9.  black christmas (1974):  this is another creepyasFUCK, and canadian too!  70s sorority girls are terrorized by obscene phonecalls and watched by the eye!

10.  invasion of the body snatchers (1978):  a cast that includes donald sutherland, jeff goldblum AND leonard nimoy.  as well as some seriously sickening podpeople action and a chilling ending.

please watch all of these

or forever suck.


  1. Wow I've never heard of these movies before, except for the Return of the Living Dead? Yep, that's how sore a loser I am. I'm so interested in Sleepaway Camp and Don't Look Now. I'm gonna have to find those two. I wouldn't want to forever suck! :)
