Horrorfest Hangover


Horrorfest has ended. ūüė¶ I am actually very sad that it is over. I thought I’d be a bit relieved to have the pressure of posting everyday be over, but I actually kind of miss it. I toyed with the idea of doing a Thank-o-Rama: the 4 Thursdays of Thanksgiving¬†and posting a fav TV episode or movie that revolves/has Thanksgiving in it (I had to include TV Shows as I can only think of three movies with Thanksgiving;¬†Holiday Inn, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,¬†and¬†Miracle on 34th Street.¬†Holiday Inn¬†and¬†Miracle on 34th Street don’t even really count since they are Christmas movies.) Then I thought of doing¬†War Writings: 11 Days to Honor Armed Forces¬†for¬†Veteran’s Day,¬†but I thought it would be far too soon to commit myself to another everyday project. I need to take a momentary breather.

WakeUpNoThankYou

I am considering doing something like The 12 Posts of Christmas¬†and something like¬†Lovetales: 14 Fun-filled Romances¬†for Valentines Day. Also¬†Viva Mexico: Cinco dias de los Chicanos¬†for Cinco de Mayo. I’m still working on the actual titles for these. I thought about doing¬†Pot o’ Gold: Seven Irish Tales for St. Patrick’s Day because I don’t think I can think of 17. The only films I could think of that I have seen that revolve around Irish people/Irish flavor are¬†Rudy¬†(Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish),¬†Luck of the Irish, Gangs of New York, Far and Away, A Leprechaun’s Christmas¬†(doesn’t really count as it is a Christmas movie),¬†The Fighter,¬†and¬†Under the Waterfall.¬†That’s exactly seven.

Doing this whole project was completely different than I expected. I planned to do posts for all the Universal Monster Movies¬†; like The Mummy, The Wolf Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein and Phantom of the Opera; along with all their remakes, to you know compare and contrast, but I just ran out of posts to finish them all. I also really wanted to do posts on Alfred Hitchcock’s movies, like¬†The Birds, Psycho, Rebecca,¬†and¬†Strangers on a Train;¬†but also wasn’t able to get to them. I really, really, really wanted to do Vincent Price films; like¬†House on Haunted Hill, The Tomb of Ligeia, The Pit and the Pendulem,¬†etc.

I noticed that a lot of posts I chose to do really depended on how much time I was able to devote a day to a post; along with what I was in the mood for to write about. Sometimes I started a post, but never finished it as I wasn’t in the right mood.

I also wrote posts on films I just happened to watch at the time like¬†Perfect Stranger, Aliens in the Attic, Hallowe’en Party, The Black Cauldron,¬†and¬†The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari;¬†those were not films I had seen before or planned to write a post on. They just kind of happened along the way. Well I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did making them.

I’d like to know which were your faves are so vote, vote, vote! If you are unsure which to pick then why don’t you pop over and start at the beginning. Also I’d like to know what you wish I had posted on. Just leave a comment at the bottom of the page! ūüėÄ

A Very Scary Story: The Even Stevens Special (2001)

Wait. Stop. I, I can’t take it, I’m just a little kid!

So I know this isn’t a movie, but I’m strapped for time and making an exception.

I loved Even Stevens as a kid, and thought it was the best show ever. This was back when Shia LaBeouf wasn’t weird or annoying. I remember that this episode was freaky and funny, the best thing for getting you in the Halloween mood.

So the film starts out with Ren watching a horror movie.

Ren Stevens: What? Honey, you’re chased by six mutants, and you just decided to take a shower?

All of a sudden the phone rings, and in a very Scream-esque/When a Stranger Calls way the caller harasses her telling her he can see her and stuff.

What’s your favorite scary movie?

 

Ren very angry and freaked out promptly hangs up.

But instead of feeling safer, Ren hears sounds abounding from all over the house. She is extremely frightened as she traces the noises back to the closet.

Killer Scary Movie

 

She opens the door and there is……….

Louis

I’m a penguin jockey! NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NAH!

Ren of course is as uptight as always and extremely angry that Louis would play such a prank on her. She screams at him and they go their separate ways.

The next day, Ren is planning on giving out eye exams while Louis wants to plant fake eyes in the gravy at school. He plans to meet up with his friends; Tom, Twitty, and Tawny (I always thought it was funny how they all had T names) later to gross out the cafeteria crowd.

After their littke pow-wow Tom heads off to get his eyes examined. There he finds Principal Wexler dressed as a mad scientist and Coach Tugnut as Igor; alluding to the film Frankenstein.

Later Louis finds out that all his friends have ditched their plans to prank the school. In fact all they care about is drinking milk and bad things going on their permanent record

Tom Gribalski: suddenly got quite the hankering for the moo juice. It’s an excellent source of calcium for overall skeletal health…if something like [the prank] that went down on our permanent record, it would follow us for the rest of our lives.

In fact everyone in the school is walking around drinking milk, talking about permanant records, and trying to get Louis to get his eyes examined. What is going on in that room, will Louis survive or succumb to this mad Halloween nightmare?

You’ll have to watch and find out! Let me just say I absolutely loved the end! I’m sure you guys will to.

To check out the previous post go here. Have a scraretasticly good Sunday. More posts to come as we are nearing the halfway mark to completion.
