Well, that was bracing. I will definitely be talking about a few of the movies from last week in more depth when I get a chance, but for now, it’s onto Week Two. Oh, and correction from last week! I realized that I had misspoken when I said I hadn’t ever seen Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, but LOL, I actually own the movie – I just haven’t watched it in several years. The reason I opened with it this year is because I watched the 1980s Vampire Hunter D movie in 2020 and was sorely disappointed. Luckily, my feelings about Bloodlust haven’t changed too much over the years.
I ended up not being able to watch Thursday and Friday’s movies (Jennifer’s Body & The Descent), so I’ll be adding them to this week’s list. Luckily, I am getting a much needed break from weekly clinicals, so it’s a bit easier to fit them in. But anyway, onto what I’m putting into my eyeballs this week:
- Oct 10: Night of the Comet (also Jennifer’s Body)
- Oct 11: The Return of the Living Dead
- Oct 12: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) (also The Descent)
- Oct 13: Slither
- Oct 14: The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It
- Oct 15: The Strangers
- Oct 16: DOUBLE FEATURE – Parasite / The Host
Now, I have already seen Slither, but that was back when it came out and I actually saw it in the theater. I think this was actually my first run-in with anything involving Nathan Fillion, so I’m pretty sure a lot of my commentary is going to include lots of lusting after him. As far as the double feature goes, I’m continuing my director theme, this time being Bong Joon-ho, and I will be using this experience to celebrate finishing my stats course that has been the academic equivalent of a hemorrhoid.
As always, I’ll be live-tweeting as I watch, so please join me as I try to scare myself! I’d appreciate the virtual company.
