30 Nights of Horror with Nancy Nightmare

Ghoulish greetings! This year for Halloween I decided to watch one of my favorite spooky movies every night in October leading up to the big night, Halloween! I am also posting my nightly picks on Twitter @nightwizmusic. Play along with me at home as I spend time with all of my best friends- Jason, Mikey, Freddy...

For day one of #30nightsof horror I kicked things off with a movie I hadn't seen before- Ouija.

I have to say, I don't think I'll be watching this one again. I wasn't scared once! I don't have much to say about it. I've been told that Ouija: Origin of Evil is better, so I will give that one a shot at some point.

For day 2 of #30nightsofhorror I watched my all-time favorite horror movie, Halloween, The music, the mood, my beloved Mikey (Michael Myers)- it's all perfection. I often wonder what is broken in me that makes me love Michael Myer so much. "The Shape" is barely Human anymore, but I still get so happy every time he comes on the screen.

It's rare that I love a heroine in a Horror movie- I usually end up rooting for the killer. In this film, however, things are a bit different. I love and respect Laurie. She's resourceful, down-to-earth and tough.  As much as I love Mikey, I can't help but cheer her on as she takes on The Shape.

On to day 3! I haven't decided what to watch tonight. It's always hard fo me not to just stick with the classics. I hate being disappointed! Have suggestions for me? Leave a comment below.

Stay spooky!

Nancy

    First off, LOVING the look of the new site. Simple and clean. Not that I had an issue with the old site, but I love that you guys are taking a dive into the blog aspect. :) I wonder what you picked for the 3rd! I would recommend "Pontypool" if you haven't had the pleasure of watching it yet. One of my favorites for sure! It will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat and isn't quite what you'd expect. If you want something really out there and unheard of, I would also recommend "Beyond the Gates". I wouldn't call that one super scary (more campy in its horror, really), but it's a very intriguing concept and you think about it for a while afterwards. Think along the lines of if they made Jumanji a horror movie. Also "The Shrine" is very interesting. I will warn you that it starts off very slow, but picks up and has quite the twist. All three can be found on Netflix and don't seem to be leaving any time soon. ;)

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate that. Blogging sounded fun to me, just because it gives me a chance to go off on tangents and talk about all of the strange things that I'm into aside from music. I haven't seen any of those! Thank you so much for the recommendations. I am going to add all three to the list. I really love campy horror, so I may start with "Beyond the Gates." I love that all three are on Netflix- my horror habit is getting expensive.
