So, this past weekend I went to a get together at a friend's house. There were a few of us and we were discussing plans for the upcoming Halloween night. A couple have younger kids and planned on letting them have Halloween party at their place along with a sleepover to watch "scary" movies, which brought up the topic of "which movies to watch?"
The typical movies were tossed around of the Freddy, Jason, Chainsaw Massacres, and Halloween variety. When asked my opinion I had to admit having never seen any of those films, this actually garnered a lot of WTF looks from people who have known me for the better of 20+ years, not to mention a couple were thrown way off (apparently) due to knowing that H.P. Lovecraft is one of my favourite authors.. I enjoy a variety of movies and have never had the desire to watch any "Horror/Scary" movies. Those films weren't watched in the house I grew up in, my mom and dad were more into action/adventure, SciFi, and comedy films.
So, as things progressed and we continued talking, the person whose house we were at, decided to Netflix a movie for watching at the Halloween party and for me to see a "scary" movie. The movie picked out was "The Babadook" which I have to say, sounds like some gibberish profanity. So, after a couple hours of sitting through this, I have to say I'm a bit underwhelmed by the idea that I've missed out on anything.
It was recommended that I should watch horror films all day this coming Halloween. Out of curiosity, were I to do this, what would anyone here on Heresy recommend? I'm probably not going to bother, but, I may end up doing it just to say I've seen "these films" get of my case.
