horror movie saturday

“Jennifer Carpenter, the actress who played the titular character in 2005 film "The Exorcism of Emily Rose,” reports that her radio would turn itself on in the middle of the night several times while filming the movie. Not only that, but it would also play a section of a Pearl Jam song that recited, “I’m still alive,” over and over again. We hope this is just a case of faulty electronics, because that is seriously eerie.“

“Possibly one of the most cursed movie sets ever, cast and crew involved in the original 1976 "The Omen” were plagued with mishaps. Executive producer Mace Neufeld and actor Gregory Peck were both on planes that got struck by lightning (on different occasions). An animal handler was eaten alive by lions and a set location was bombed by the IRA. The curse continued after filming stopped; a special effects artist was in a car crash that decapitated his passenger in a manner similar to a character’s death in the movie.“

Gotta love Tony Todd. I believe that it will be necessary to watch Candyman again soon.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I am thankful for all of the good horror movies that have desensitized me enough to the point that I can watch Walking Dead and Rob Zombie movies.

“A studio fire destroyed all the initial sets of the MacNeil residence, which had to be rebuilt. The fire occurred when no one was on set, and has never been fully explained — but it set production back six weeks. A priest was brought in multiple to times to bless filming locations to relieve cast members’ fears. Actor Jack MacGowran died of complications from the flu just shy of the films release. Eight other deaths have also been linked to cast and crew involved with the movie.”

Went to see Insidious: Chapter 2. To prepare, we re-watched ‘Chapter 1’. We ended up having to walk out of the theater… because of the number of people laughing and making fools of themselves… and the film.

Don’t laugh at horror movies. Not when you’re paying to go. Some of us live for horror. Horror is a huge part of our lives, and we thrive on the thrills, the gore, the killers, the victims. Don’t make fun of them. If you want to make fun of them, stream them online and make fun at home. 

It’s just a simple courtesy for those of us who have spent years watching horror movies every night of our grown lives.
