I’m a gal that likes lots of movies. Sure, I’ll always want the latest romantic comedy, or teen movie, or Nicholas Sparks adaptations – but I am a Cinema student, always. I always want to watch new conventions, new ideas based on old plots, new genres, or sub-genres (though thanks to Eli Roth, I may avoid torture!porn).
So with that in mind, I’m embarking on a Horror Movie Challenge. With help of course! I can’t do this alone! Simon Miraudo and Jon Tilton; host on the Trending Cinema podcast and website, and fellow movie junkies are going to watch a few. The list of movies I am going to see was thought up by Simon and Jon’s fervent love of the genre, as well as going through other lists, and coming up with a good cross-section of all the different levels of horror.
Oh boy. What have I signed up for?
Horror movie 1 is Poltergeist, produced by Spielberg, directed by Hooper (guy that did the Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Yet I’m told this is a ‘gentle’ beginning!
Wish me luck..
