Pure Horror

Someone recently posted this pic in a comment section of a blog I follow. I found it hilarious yet just a tad chilling. Chilling because I’ve always found dolls to possibly have a evil side, a side that we never see, yet they possess.

Since I enjoyed that photo so much I not only decided to share it with you, but Fearsome chose the movie that introduced us to Chucky for our last installment of Pure Horror.

Sleep well my friends!

Pure Horror

This film is a masterpiece. I do remember when I went to see it upon its release my instant appreciation for the attention to detail, the acting and directing. It is superb. There was an unfortunate disappointment in me though, the novel is one of my favorite of all time, as the movie changed the ending. I left with a feeling of being unfulfilled because I expected it might end as the novel had. I do however still find it a masterpiece and one of the best true horror films ever.

Pure Horror

‘Tis the season…

I remember seeing this one in the theatres when it was released in 1978. My friend Leslie spent about half of the film in my lap every time a scene climaxed. To this day it’s still the most memorable horror film I’ve ever seen. Something about the low budget crude filming of it gives it an extra edge.

In Memory

We lost Olivia Newton John this week.

I have to pause and thank her for the many memories as well as being part of the soundtrack of my life. She stepped into my life with her iconic performance opposite John Travolta in Grease. I was in the throws of puberty and deeply in lust with Mr. Travolta when that movie came out. She was stunning.

Then she took my breath away with her single Physical. The video for that gave me not only a hard on, but hope that there were actually other men who liked other men besides me, possibly many of them.

She showed up many other times in my life. However when she popped into my life in Sordid Lives, she stepped up into iconic camp status.

Thank you Olivia.

John Carpenter – Halloween – 1978 – Opening Scene

A true horror film. I was but a teenager and Fearsome was but peach fuzz, however we got to experience this classic the week it was released in 1978 with 5 other friends in a movie theatre with a full house. It was a most unforgettable adventure. An adventure that one never fully recovers from.

Happy Days Ahead

I’ve been saving this famous clip of Judy & Barbra just for today.
