Byte Size: Spooky Season Scream Fare
All things terrible, horrible, and suitably gore-splattered for Halloween viewing.
As is tradition, I will start this newsletter entry with a confession: I’m kind of a wimp. There, I said it. I’ve never really enjoyed “horror” movies or anything tangential to the spooky season. Your slashers, your body horrors, your torture porn, etc. For whatever reason, my less-than-lizard brain just refuses to enjoy the sheer terror and gleeful dismemberment of cliched characters in hilariously absurd and often fanciful scenarios. I am, in other words, the killjoy’s killjoy.
So, given that it is the month of Octavus, and the ritual demands the viewing of scream-related fare in honour of All Hallows’ Eve and Samhain, I’ve put together a list of my (emphasis on said wimpiness here) favourite spooky films. We’ve got gothic space demons and eldritch nightmare beasts, rage-fuelled zombies and Scottish werewolves, neon axe wielders and sexy sax vampires, and much more. Fun for the whole family. Enjoy!
