Lazy Weekend Movies: Trick or Treat
Posted October 31, 2015on:
Boo, Widdershins! It’s All Hallows Eve, and am I ever ready to put the past week behind me. This week’s detritus scored a considerable lift from the epic, excruciating Republican debate – which is, of course, being blamed squarely on the effete liberal commentators from CNBC. The RNC has notified NBC that they have severed all ties, which leads me to believe that further debate moderators could be of the Sean Hannity ilk. Remember that the usual suspects from Faux News were thought to be way too tough during debate numero uno. Can’t wait for the next one, which should feature substantial questions such as “When did you first discover how much you love this country?” and perhaps “Name fifteen ways that the liberals are ruining America”. This should be fascinating.
For the weekend, however, we will put all that behind us and enjoy the holiday. I am particularly fond of Hallowe’en because my Fundie friends swear that it’s the devil’s holiday. In a few hours, legions of costumed children will be banging at my door. My candy is prepped and ready so that I might spend the rest of the day watching football, but as the darkness grows outside I’ll turn to scary movies.
Scary movies run the gamut from psychological thrillers to blood and gore. My preference is closer to the former than the latter, but feel free to post any that curl your hair. Otherwise, it’s a wide open thread.
