[wait, this isn't a Zelda post.. let me start again-] Before the weekend hit, I started a new horror challenge I found online and finished off at question number 6. Now that the weekend is done [plus,I'm not working: I was on call from Thursday to this morning at 8am.. talk about tiring!], I'm here to continue with part2! So enough delay, let's actually get right down to it!
# 07 - Your favorite supernatural horror film
The Shining is my favorite Jack Nicholson film. As Jack Torrance, it was hard not to be afraid of what he was capable of. I remember my Grandfather showing me this film when I was younger, and not understanding it. Now that I'm older, and I appreciate film a hell of a lot more- I've come to love it. 'HEEEEEEERE'S JOHNNNY!'
# 08 - Your favorite anthology
Creepshow is the horror anthology to watch; although there is many other choices. [the second was alright, and we don't dare speak of 'Creepshow3'] I went with Creepshow however, because it embodies everything I like from horror films: monsters, blood, and best of all- horrific scenes. [honorable mention: Trick 'r Treat]
# 09 - Your favorite exploitation / grindhouse type film
Dead Alive; also known as Braindead was a gore-fest made famously by Peter Jackson [yeah, the LordOfTheRings director!] back in the 90s. It's gory for sure, but far from scary. [it's fairly cheesy actually] be sure to read my review on this film on my Letterboxd account here!
# 10 - Your favorite psychological horror film
when I first saw Orphan, I was blown away. I didn't think a film could be so extreme, especially when our villain is played by a young actress. Points to Isabelle Fuhrman for playing Esther so damn well, she certainly spooked the fuck outta me! this is a good thing.
# 11 - Your favorite science fiction horror film
Although I wanted to say Alien; I feel that it's a choice almost everyone would choose. For this reason, I went with another fantastic, but controversial sci-fi favorite: Splice. If you're so inclined, I actually did a review on this film on Letterboxd as well. [I seem to have done a lot of reviews there.] Read that review here.
# 12 - Your favorite horror film involving the occult
I'm not entirely sure this one counts, but Drag Me To Hell was a film I actually myself to enjoy, even if many of my friends didn't. My only real complaint about the film is it felt and looked different from Sam Raimi's other films. Not exactly a film with Deadites in it.. [cough, 'The Evil Dead', cough]
Thus concludes part2 of the new horror challenge. I'll continue with a part3 [and maybe a part4 & part5 depending on how long it takes to get to 30.] in the next coming days [I'm off until 3:00 on Wednesday!] Be sure to 'like' the fan page for Firework Eyes & Haunted Hearts on Facebook; which you can find here, or even follow me on Twitter.
