Today is Halloween so that means I will be watching spooky movies in the background all day long as I work, which makes this pretty much exactly the same as every other day because every day is Halloween if you really want it to be. The real difference is that when Victor walks out of his office and says, “WHY DOES IT ALWAYS SOUND LIKE A MASSACRE IN HERE?” I can say, “Because it’s Halloween, you weirdo” instead of just reminding him that it’s not my fault that my office has no doors since it’s technically the dining room.
Today I’ll be watching some of my comfort favorites (is it weird to have bloody comfort favorites?) like Cabin in the Woods, Shawn of the Dead, Housebound, Grabbers, A Tale of Two Sisters and The Shining. I will also be rewatching Tammy and the Teenage T-Rex, a film where teenage Paul Walker gets his brain implanted in the body of an animatronic T-rex after he was attacked by a lion until cheerleader Denise Richards tries to save his brain so that she can make a Frankenstein? Also, the creepy guy from Children of the Corn is in it. It is so, so terrible.
But I still have many hours to fill so please tell me what else I absolutely must watch today. (Bonus points for creepy, supernatural, psychological horror, possession, dark comedy, folk horror.)
