Horror Bloggers Meme :o)

I'm such a dork and I love questionnaires like this.  I feel slightly sad that I am too old to complete them all the time on Facebook like my teenage cousins do.  Thanks to Billy Loves Stu for this one!

1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog:

Reviewing all movies possible -- good, bad, or ugly.

2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?

A: The Classic Horror Era (late 30's to 40's)
B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's)
C: The Psycho Era ( Early 60's)
D: The Rosemary's Baby Era (Mid to Late 60's)
E: The Exorcism Era (Early to mid 70's)
F: The Halloween Era (Late 70's to Early 80's)
G: The Slasher Era (Mid to late 80's)
H: The Self Referential/Post Modern Era (1990 to 1999)

Halloween era, if that covers 1983.

3: The Carrie Compatibility Question:

(gay men and straight women - make your choice from section A)
A: Billy Nolan or Tommy Ross, who would you take to the prom?

(straight guys and lesbians - make your choice from section B)
B: Sue Snell or Chris Hargensen, who would you take to the prom?

I'd have to say Billy Nolan.  Tommy Ross looked like Leif Garrett and that is not my jam.

4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money, and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?

Probably something gratuitous and ridiculous like Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash vs. Michael Myers.  With cameos by Danny Trejo, Bill Moseley, Stephen King, and Danielle Harris.  Danielle would have to be  dressed as a young Michael Myers.  And this is why I don't have control over a major motion picture studio.

5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?

Hellraiser.  I just don't get it, or like it, or anything.  Sorry, Pinhead fans.

6: Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?

Affirmative.  Everything went totally downhill after the Texas Chainsaw Massacre update, which I will admit I liked.

7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?

None of them.  I know it makes me a bad person but I've never been a fan of the old/classic horror movies.

8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:

This happens to me much more than you would think.  Murder in the First and Inside (not the French one) come to mind.  But in my opinion, the ultimate non-horror scare is when Elliot finds E.T. all shriveled up and white on the side of that creek.  It makes me shiver just thinking about it. 

9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch. What do you bring?

Some sort of poultry and probably booze.

10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging? Come, on you can tell me, it will be our little secret, I won't tell a soul.

I love horror movies so I'd probably write it either way.  But seriously, I have always aspired to be a writer, and I'm stuck in the ultra-boring corporate world, by no choice of my own.  I'd like to make the horror thing a profitable venture at some point.

11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?

A little devil costume, maybe...?  I mean, you might as well go with it.

12: Godzilla vs The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?

Wasn't Cloverfield just a baby or something?  Maybe if he grew up he could beat Godzilla.

13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?

I'm actually Rob Zombie-obsessed, so I've considered this possibility in my daydreams.  In this fantasy world, I debate taking down my scathing review of Halloween 2.  Then I decide that a real fan would give him the truth. 

In reality, I'd update my House of 1000 Corpses review, since I wrote it so long ago and it's not as developed as my current reviews.  But I'd leave up H2 because god damn, that movie was awful.  I'd also leave up my trashing of The Blob remake and begging him to make another TDR/House-ish movie.

14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?

Almost Famous.  I don't have a good explanation...I just love that movie.

15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing?

Driving my husband nuts with my constant talk of horror movies.  Sooo...basically the same thing I was doing before I started this blog.
