I like sharing things that I find interesting
I love movies and photography! I'm absolutely no expert on the subject, but here are some things I thought were cool, funny, crazy, and just generally interesting :)
Fall is my favorite season. I love how the colors of the leaves change as the weather begins to cool. I love the layers of clothing we have to start putting on and how cozy it feels. I love having a cup of hot chocolate to warm up.
Not only that, but it's the season that Halloween dwells. How fitting it is for the sun to go down earlier so that the creatures of the night can come out. Halloween, the one day of the year that people can act like monsters and be praised for it. Children go mad for sugar and are allowed to indulge.
My favorite thing about Halloween are the scary movies. As a child, scary movies were always fun to watch. I was scared as hell growing up watching the Nightmare on Elm st. films. Freddy Krueger was one of THE scariest monsters ever created. A monster that get you in your dreams? I sure as hell didn't want to sleep alone when I was a kid after seeing those movies. Then there's Jason from the Friday the 13th films. Unstoppable, unrelenting, hiding behind that scary ass hockey mask. He was a killing machine that you could not reason with. I couldn' resist. Being scared is fun. It's still fun today.
Ever since Kat (my girlfriend) moved to Chicago in 2011, we started somewhat of a tradition. The week leading to October 31st, we watch a scary movie every night. Here are 5 movies that I can remember from the past few years:
Halloween is in about a week and a half. I'll be looking for new scary movies to watch. Any suggestions?
What are your favorite horror films?
