Hello again. So, we're almost halfway there. Yay! Need a gothy outfit for October? Check out Modcloth's Halloween Shop, try this site for some fun outfits, and here's what PinupGirlClothing.com has to offer. For some vintage spookiness, have a peek at the Dark Shadows tribute website. Thanks to Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes I always think of traveling carnivals this time of year. Interested in some history? Check this out. Also, if you're interested in different (and, IMHO, better) movie recommendations you can't go wrong by listening to what the women over at the Women In Caskets podcast have to say.
Now, for today's recommendations. First, I'll go with The World's End.
I really, really like Simon Pegg. So, any movie he's written I'll probably watch. Also, true confession time...I actually dated a guy that was quite a bit like Gary King. (Yeah. I know. We've all made bad decisions in our pasts.)
Okay. Next up: Pitch Black.
Holy shit. That movie had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Although, the woman who takes charge was annoyingly ineffective as a leader. Grrr.
After that, how about some levity? Well, here's my favorite version of Ghostbusters. It had some problems, but it was far better than the original, if you ask me. Yes. I said it. :P
Lastly, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).
I don't care what anyone says...the 1978 version is the best (creepiest) one. For the record, I don't recommend the novel. It suffers from wall to wall sexist tropes.
