Welcome back to the 31 Days of Halloween!!! It's been a bit since I updated what we've been watching, but here I am. Also, I am thinking I might attempt a video review for some of the next set of movies/TV shows/ and the concert we went to.
Ok, so here goes at least one chunk of Halloween reviewing.
Quantum Leap Season 3 Halloween episode. Aka "the Stephen King episode." Not scary, just fun. I love Quantum Leap, and I remember watching this episode with my dad and him laughing about it.
Cabin in the Woods (2011) - This movie was way better than I expected it to be. Yes, it is a slasher movie, but it is also done by Joss Whedon (he of Buffy, Angel, and Firefly fame). His normal sense of humor is in the movie, and there is a TON of gore. We really enjoyed this film.
The Descent - This is a movie that I have been scared to watch for a few years. I am terribly claustrophobic underground or underwater, so I figured this movie would scare me to death. Honestly, it was not anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be. It was gruesome, but not over the top. The character interaction was pretty interesting. Again, an enjoyable horror movie.
Zodiac - Now this is more of a drama than a horror movie. But, it's a good movie, and it is about a serial killer, so it qualifies for this month. I've seen this before, but it was worth a second viewing. The Zodiac case is creepy, and the cinematography on this movie is awesome.
The Ward - This movie was advertised by Netflix as a John Carpenter movie. Supposedly he directed it. I think he wrote some music for it (at least that sounded like his kind of music), but other than that it didn't really feel like a Carpenter movie. This is about a girl named Kristen who ends up in a psych ward with other young women and these women are slowly being killed off by the ghost of a former patient. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best movie ever.
Along with these we've been watching Supernatural. We are onto season 4 which includes the introduction of Castiel the socially awkward angel!
That's it for now. I still have a lot of catching up to do with what we've watched. This has been a fun year so far though. I am trying some new movies that I wasn't brave enough to watch before, and I am really in the Halloween spirit!
