Alien: Covenant

Fangirls, I’ve done it. I’ve made it through the entire Alien series and loved (almost) every minute of it! I came into this series worried that it would cause nightmares and make me fear my mum (surprise, she looks EXACTLY like Ripley), but oh my goodness did I have a blast watching these. We watched Aliens 3 through Covenant this weekend, and I honestly went into Covenant thinking I would like it. I thought that since I didn’t hate 3 or Prometheus (which I was told that I would), that Covenant wouldn’t be that bad.

There are spoilers ahead, so be careful.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula adapted by Michael Mucci, Ben Caldwell, & Bill Halliar

I was shuffling though one of our book cases the other day, in search of a graphic novel to read for today, and was happy to find this, an adaptation of the Dracula story. The boyfriend is all about the Occult & Horror, so I wasn’t terribly surprised, but, flipping through, I immediately fell in love with the art. So I nabbed it & cozied up to read.

31 Nights of Horror: Week 4

Guys, we are behind. Like, over 10 movies behind. We didn’t get through a ton this past week because I was sick so I was usually asleep by the time Rob got home, plus we had a busy weekend where we drove up to New York to grab some more of my stuff (like my desk and desktop which I’m finally using again). I’m exhausted but less sick this week, so hopefully we can end (mildly) strong, and get closer to the goal.

31 Nights of Horror: Week 1

Alright Fangirls, it’s finally time to talk about the 3 movies we’ve watched so far for 31 Nights of Horror (which isn’t actually scary). I am the biggest of chickens, so I’m not a fan of genuinely scary movies, but I do like comedies and the like. So TheThirdRLM has modified his list of spooky movies to accommodate my fears, and we’re mostly watching goofy scary movies.

A Holiday Wish List from Someone Who Doesn’t Really Like the Holidays

True confessions: I am not a Christmas person. Nope, Halloween is my holiday! It’s not that I don’t enjoy ‘the most wonderful time of the year’, there are genuinely some aspects of the holiday season that I love: homemade butter cookies we make with my Great Grandma’s antique cookie press, hot chocolate in front of a fire, decorating a big bushy pine tree, hanging out with my siblings… Making my dog wear adorable sweaters! (Cute dog+cute sweater is like my kryptonite!) But when they start putting Christmas items in stores before October has even begun and airing commercials for Christmas sales it kinda makes me wish I was a necromancer or mad evil scientist so I could unleash the zombie apocalypse the day after Thanksgiving on all the insane ‘Black Friday’ shoppers. I despise how commercial Christmas is, and hordes of holiday shoppers are practically zombies already… Yes, I know, it’s practically Grinchy! (Maybe if I put Santa hats on all the zombies?) If it was left up to me, I’d totally skip the nightmare of holiday shopping and I’d stay home enjoying a big cup of tequila spiked hot cocoa (add a pinch of cayenne for an adult version of Mexican hot chocolate!) and binge watch every Christmas horror movie ever made, starting with that perennial favorite, “Silent Night, Deadly Night.”
