FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE...beware yon spoilers!

Oct 1, 2009

it's here, it's here!


Can you feel it in the air? Can you dig it? It's October, y'all! Wait, scratch that- it's SHOCKTOBER! Time to buy your fake eyeballs at the grocery store, time for the crunch of leaves and the rustle of cellophane on the boxes of Ben Cooper costumes.

Okay, so I live on the lower left coast, where the leaves don't change until January (if they change at all)...and Ben Cooper costumes are a thing of the way way past. Just let me have my Halloween-time delusions, won't you? It's the most wonderful time of the year!

The horror blogging community seems to agree, and most everybody's got plenty of tricks and treats in store for your ass this month. Behold...IF YOU DARE!
As for moi, I'm heading back to my SHOCKTOBER roots and watching & reviewing a movie every day for the duration of the month- the caveat being that I'll only feature movies I've never seen before. Old stuff, new stuff, great stuff, bad stuff, B & W, cullah, stuff I should've seen long ago but lamed out on...it's all up for grabs. I'm really excited to dive back into the daily madness. I've even got a few of my famous (to me) butt-numbing marathons planned. And other stuff.

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother a reader or a blogger, there's not doubt: SHOCKTOBER is the best time to be a genre fan!

Yay I'm so fucking psyched! I'm so psyched I'm being vulgar! Fucking vulgar, even! But this is the bestest month ever.

I wish I'd come up with a theme for October - excuse me, SHOCKtober - posts, but I just haven't. BLURGH. I'm gonna be gone for almost the entire week of Halloween anyway so it probably wouldn't be worth it. Somehow the internet will have to manage without it. SOMEHOW.

Cheers to daily Stacie! Hooray!

I'm completely stoked for Shocktober and all the joys it brings.

Now if I could only finish my damn reviews... (I am so, so behind).

And I am actually planning an event at www.slammedanddamned.com. Well, what I call an event, most people call a yawn, so...

Thanks for the link Stace. I'm feeling a level of excitement that only Andrew WK could possibly express.

I took October 30 and November 2nd off from my job... four days of watching movies. Scary movies. Gory movies. I am pretty much blogging all about scary movies, new and old.
