HAPPY HALLOWEEN, Y’ALL!!!!!

Greetings and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! While I’ve finished reviewing scary movies for this month (and you can find all of those reviews here), I thought it would be nice to do something I did last year–a sort of roundup post, I guess. Last year, I called it a “Master List” (which I reblogged earlier, if you care to have a looksee), but this year, since my reviews are a mere fraction of what they were last year, I decided to rank the films I watched from my lowest grades to the best of the best.

Spook Series 2013: A Master List

caragale:

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!! How about one last little reblog from last year’s Spook Series? Here’s what I like to refer to as last year’s “Master List.”

See that picture above? THAT’S HOW MANY MOVIES I WATCHED LAST MONTH.

…No. That’s a lie. But I did watch a lot of freaking horror movies for Spook Series–79 of them, if I did my math correctly. But I was looking at my lists a while back and I thought it would be cool to do something I intended to do yesterday, but didn’t: create a master list. Like, I have all these different movies, but when it gets down to it, what are the ones you really need to watch?

Spook Series 2013: 8 Eerie Extras

caragale:

I dealt with a lot of spooky categories last year, but then there were a few films that didn’t quite fit. Hence this list of what I like to refer to as “Eerie Extras.”

Happy Halloween, kiddos! Hope you’re donning costumes and/or gobbling candy while you’re reading this last Spook Series 2013 post. It’s been a fun ride with lots of different horrors (all of which you can view in the Spook Series Archives), but alas, all good things must come to an end.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED: THE EXORCIST III

caragale:

Good day, friends! The wonderful Mr. Eric Isaacs of The IPC recently challenged me to watch one of his favorite films ever, The Exorcist III. All I had to say about that was CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. Check out our little discussion about it! Also, stay tuned next week for when Eric accepts my challenge to him to watch an epic classic!

In 2012 – when I first started this place, I used to do special themed posts on Holidays that no one ever read. On Easter of 2012 I published a post about Exorcist III and went on about Satan and his buddies but no one ever looked at it because no one looked at my blog and no one wanted to read about Easter. In 2013, I re-posted it and a couple of people looked at it, but, if you wanted to read about one of my all time favorite movies, you could do that HERE and I would only love it.

I had also just bought some graphic design software and was teaching myself how to use it and I made a fancy movie poster for E3 that isn’t on the post any longer and I can’t find it on my computer so I made a new one for…

Spook Series 2014: A Fearsome Foursome (#15-18)

spook series 4.5

Say it ain’t so! Is this really my LAST batch of horror films for this year’s Spook Series? How did this month go by so fast?! Well, I’ve had an absolute blast watching all this stuff—even if I did only get through a fraction of the films I’d hoped to watch. I know 18 isn’t anything to be ashamed of, but last year I did 79, dammit! Clearly, my ambition has diminished since last year. Haha. But enough with my woes. Continue reading

Premiere Particulars: Grimm

grimm

Does anybody watch this show? I kind of feel like I’m all alone on my own little Grimm island sometimes. It’s funny though—when I finished season one of this show, my response was fairly lukewarm (see my review here). I liked it, but I didn’t know if I really cared to keep up with it. But I’d heard season two was better, so I gave it a shot. Now, I am firmly hooked. Have you been considering giving NBC’s Grimm a shot? Continue reading

Premiere Particulars: Constantine

constantine

Thought I was done with TV premieres? Think again! Got two of them coming atcha this week, actually—both of them very Halloween appropriate. But I was vastly curious about this NBC adaptation of DC Comics’ Hellblazer series, so I thought I’d test the waters. Honestly, I’ve never really gotten super into the Keanu Reeves Constantine movie, so I’m not sure what drew me to this. Continue reading
