Movie reviews/ a little catch up

Hello fellow ghouls and goblins

This year I’ve had an unfortunate accident. I fell down a flight of stairs and fractured my tailbone. I am unable to go to haunted houses and it bums me out so hard. So this year instead of haunted house reviews I’ll be doing more Halloween movie reviews.

I’ve gone to the theatre twice the past few weeks and will start today with talking about the Addams Family.

The Addams Family. It’s such a cute animated version of the story. The movie is geared more for adults and teens then little kids. Not because there’s anything graphic or anything I just have noticed that all the kids who were there to see it including my son were just kind of bored with it. All the adults however loved it and we were all laughing the whole way through. It has a pretty all star cast and it’s full of many ups and downs. I totally recommend this movie without wanting to give to much away!

I’m sorry this post is very short but check in tomorrow when i give a more detailed review of It Chapter 2.

Until next time Ghouls and Ghosties,

Spirit Halloween 2019 part 1

Hello Ghouls and Ghosties,

It’s been a minute. I’ve found myself in a bit of a depressive slump lately and I’m hoping with October being so close it’ll bring me out of it. Last weekend My husband, son and I travelled an hour and a half away to our nearest Spirit Halloween.

This years theme is a favorite of mine. The S.S Riptide and the Reapers Warf. It’s an ocean theme and it’s fantastic. The front of the store features a crashed ship, where it hosts a lot of its many props. The back is set up like a set of shops and a fallen over light house. The walk through haunted house has movie screens up that do jump scares with sharks attacking the glass.

Unfortunately the store we went to didn’t receive most of there props/animatronics this year so we were a tad disappointed. We were on the hunt for the Michael Myers prop and the new Pennywise prop and the store had neither. We had asked the employees if they would be getting more because at the time we arrived they had none of the props they were advertising for sale and they said to check back in October and they should have more shipment so fingers crossed!

We did get my sons costume there this year. He is going to be a Ghost Buster! He recently discovered how much he loves the movies, and is so excited to wear his new costume. The spirit Halloween did have a lot of Hocus Pocus items and I know a lot of my followers love Hocus Pocus so definitely check that out.

We plan on returning to Spirit Halloween in October so I’ll be posting more then with some pictures. I hope you all are having a good summer and are as excited as I am about the upcoming Halloween Season.

Until Next Time Ghouls and Ghosties,

100 Days to Halloween

Welcome Spooky followers,

 

Welcome to the beginning of my Halloween season. Today starts 100 days to Halloween. I’m celebrating today with Horror Movies, popcorn, and DeadByDaylight. I just recently started playing dead by daylight about a month ago and its a wicked fun horror game.

Dead By Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer (4VS1) horror game where one player takes on the roll of the killer, and the other four players play as survivors, trying to escape the killer and avoid being caught and killed.

For 100 days till Halloween they updated the Killer, Freddy and announced a new survivor from another horror game. I definitely recommend playing if you never have before!

I’m also going to be watching some horror movies based on summer, such as ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’, ”Friday the 13th’ and ‘Sleep-away Camp’

I will now be posting weekly until September then i’ll be posting even more frequently. I’m currently in the plans of how I’m wanting to decorate for this Halloween season and What I want to be for Halloween 2019!

I’m looking forward to all the future festivities and ill be seeing you all shortly. Have A Happy Halloween Season!!

Ghoulishly Yours,

Child’s Play Remake

Hello Ghouls and Ghosties!

It’s been awhile! I hope you’ve all been well and I’m excited to announce I’m ready to get back into the blog. So let’s get to it! Last night I decided to watch the child’s play remake, and let me tell you I love it!! (spoilers ahead)

I was very skeptical going into it, I am a huge fan of the original child’s play series and changing the whole theme of the movie made me a little concerned. So the main difference is the lack of supernatural with the doll itself.

The new Chucky is an AI whom only turns evil because he truly believes he is doing good. Chucks technological safety features are turned off by an angry employee at the plant where the Buddi Doll is created. Then chucky is gifted to Andy by his mother much like the original. Except in this movie Chucky is not trying to steal Andy’s soul but remain Andy’s only friend by killing everyone who is a threat or whom he feels if harmful or hurtful to Andy. on. Chucky is made by the company Kasdan and he is able to control all of their products to wreak havoc and kill because of their cloud-based storage. (kind of reminds me of tech now days) Even though Chucky is later dismembered and beaten by Andy and his friends, his memories live in the cloud storage. This means his consciousness can be transferred to another Kasdan product since Andy and his friends only killed the physical portion of the doll. This comes later in the movie when Andy’s mother is working the unveiling of the Buddi2 in the store she works at and Chuckys mind starts to possess all the new Buddi dolls and even the Buddi Bears!

I would definitely say that the remake is not very scary but actually a really good thriller scary movie. Mark Hamill actually makes a fantastic chucky and I totally recommend this movie to all the original fans and for people who’ve never seen the original as well! It’s a refreshing and new age horror movie that really fits into where we’re going with technology.

I plan on going to see the new Annabelle movie this week/weekend, so be on the look out on my review for it! Thanks so much for reading and I hope your all glad I’m back!

Until Next Time Ghouls and Ghosties,

Happy Death Day 2 You, and HellFest

Hello and welcome back ghouls and ghosties,

It’s been a while and I have been on the hunt for new and thrilling horror movies. This past week i’ve seen two newer horror films.

First i watched the newest installment in the Happy Death Day set.

Happy Death Day 2 YOU!

Tree Gelbman whom in the first installment keeps reliving her dying day over and over until she stops her killer and breaks the cycle. Now she discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.

The movie was very good for a sequel. It started out wicked corny and I was afraid it wouldn’t get any better. About 20 minutes in it starts getting good. The deaths are unique, the story is amazing and sad. This is more of a comedy than a horror film, but it was definitely worth the watch.

HellFest

A masked serial killer turns a horror-themed amusement park into his own personal playground, terrorizing a group of friends while the rest of the patrons believe that it is all part of the show.

Now this one I’ve been wanting to watch for a while, It came out back in September. The story is good, and it wasn’t one of those slasher films where i’m rooting for the stupid teens to die. I found myself wanting them to make it. Plus, the deaths are wicked. The gore factor is real,and a crazy ending.

The idea of going to a horror themed amusement park sounds like a really good time to me.

Sorry for the short post, but I was really wanting to get some quick reviews in for two great Halloween/Horror films.

I recommend them both!

 

Until Next Time,
Ghoulishly Yours,

Eli Roth’s History of Horror

Hello and welcome back,

I want to start with saying I am not a documentary person. They bore me and just generally not my cup of tea. Although, I just recently binge watched Eli Roth’s History of Horror documentary series.

It was fantastic. I ask every horror movie fan to check it out. The show goes through the history of different types of horror movies. Such as Slasher films, creatures, demons, and vampires.. of coarse there are more topics but that’s just a few. The show has interviews with all kinds of people. Directors from different horror movies throughout time, actors and actresses from horror movies, horror novelists, and movie fanatics.

I learned a lot watching this series and I found myself super interested in different movies I myself have never seen. It opens your eyes to different horror genres and what makes them so special. From black and white silent films to more recent horror films like IT. The directors don’t give to much away but tell you just enough about the movies to draw you in.

The show is amazing and I cannot give better reviews on it. Eli Roth is an amazing director, writer, creator, and just master of all things horror. If horror even slightly interests you I recommend checking it out! (Also it has interviews with Stephen King! So there’s that)

If you have tv on demand, that’s where I watched it, if not I know it’s available on AMC’s website.

There are 8 or 9 episodes and they are about 50 minutes long each. Please give it a chance and let me know what you think!

Until Next Time Ghouls and Ghosties,

Christmas Horror Movies

Welcome back Holly Jolly Ghouls,

I am one of those people who watch Horror year round. Christmas time is no different. My husband and I actually love Christmas Horror movies. I thought it could be fun to share with you all some of our favorites.

KRAMPUS (2015)

A young boy whose family always argues at Christmas, makes a sinister Christmas wish for them to all go away. Krampus arrives with a horrible blizzard trapping the family and essentially tortures the family and picks them off one by one.

krampus

BLACK CHRISTMAS (2006)

An escaped maniac returns to his childhood home on Christmas Eve, which is now a sorority house, and begins to murder the sorority sisters one by one. This one is a bit corny and a bit gross but a favorite we watch each year.

P2 (2007)

A businesswoman is pursued by a psychopath after being locked in a parking garage on Christmas Eve.

JACK FROST (1997)

After an accident that left murderer Jack Frost dead in genetic material the vengeful killer returns as a murderous snowman to exact his revenge on the man who sent him to be executed. This one is very corny and kind of reminds me of chucky.

It’s My Birthday!

Hello Spooky Followers,

It’s been awhile! Since this is my first blog, i quickly realized that writer’s block was an actual thing. After Halloween finished I had no idea what to post about. Although I have found a way around it. I am planning on having a Halloween Christmas. I thought whats a good way to incorporate my favorite holiday with Dylan’s favorite holiday. We decided on A Nightmare Before Christmas. So stay on the look out for more on that in the near future.

Now today is my birthday and I’m really hoping I got something Halloweenie. It’s a nice colder day today, and tonight I’m going to go see the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them: The Crimes of Grindelwald. I am so excited to go out. I have seen every Harry Potter movie in theaters and always for my birthday! I have always thought it was cool that the movies come out right around my birthday.  I am a huge Harry Potter fan. Slytherin here.

I’m actually a part of a huge online Harry Potter group, called The Vanishing Cabinet. In the group it is set up like an actual Hogwarts experience. We have classes, shops, games, and even Quidditch! I am Slytherin HOH and I Love it! Needless to say I am so excited for tonight to see the newest movie!

I hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving tomorrow, and I’ll try to make a few more posts in the next few days and get my blog active again. If you have anything you would like me to review or talk about in future posts either send the page a message or leave a comment below!

Until Next Time Ghouls and Ghosties,
Ghoulishly Yours,
