perfect for the halloween season

I can’t stop laughing about the part in the Stranger Things season 2 trailer where Mike and Lucas are arguing about something stupid and Dustin is turning around to look at something important like “Uh, guys, can you stop being idiots for two seconds because we have more important things to worry about than our Halloween costumes?” Is this not a perfect summary of their season one relationship? 

EXO at Hogwarts (OT9)

I have only done OT9 since it is based off this gif set by daisiesonyourhair that I found a couple of weeks ago and thought it would be perfect for the Halloween season. 

I have also decided to put in brackets the other two blood groups, but the one I believe they would be is the one which isn’t crossed out. Obviously they could be any blood group, but this is just fun and not to be taken seriously.


Xiumin

House – Gryffindor

Blood Status – Full Blood (or Muggle Blood or Half Blood which ever you like)

Rank and Titles – Keeper and Captain of the Quiddich team

Suho

Fright Night (1985)

October 3, 2016 Movie of the Week

Tom Holland’s Fright Night is my favorite vampire movie. After all, what’s not to love about a film that’s equal parts gothic horror and ‘80s teen comedy? Holland’s tale of a young horror fan who suspects his new neighbor is a creature of the night appeals to two of my favorite subgenres, making for a unique cinematic hodgepodge of quotable characters, gruesome special effects, epic synth-based music, and (of course) more vampire tropes than you can shake a meticulously sharpened wooden stake at. It’s brilliant.

The thing that really makes Fright Night work is the way it shifts so effortlessly from funny to scary and back. But thankfully - and this is where so many horror comedies fall flat - the humor never overpowers the horror. The heroes of Fright Night are in real jeopardy and that fact is never cast aside for the sake of an easy joke. The vampire Jerry Dandrige (Chris Sarandon) seems witty and sophisticated on the surface, sure, but that’s a ruse; the beast beneath the human facade is ancient and powerful, always one step ahead of our hero Charley Brewster (William Ragsdale), his sweetheart Amy (Amanda Bearse), their weird ass friend Evil Ed (Stephen Geoffreys), and washed up horror actor Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), who they’re all foolishly counting on to slay the fiend in question. The jokes are great but the movie truly excels because it works on both levels. Dandrige is capable of, well… just about anything you’ve ever seen in a vampire movie, which plays into Fright Night’s wonderfully meta sense of humor perfectly but also puts its characters in grave danger. And Sarandon plays the part so well! Jerry Dandrige has an eerie, wizened presence and confidence to him that screams VAMPIRE from the moment one first lays eyes on him. There’s just some… intangible thing, maybe something in the eyes… that makes him appear otherwordly even when he’s in human form. It’s a magnificent performance that I don’t think gets enough credit.

Honestly, there’s a lot about Fright Night that doesn’t get enough credit. The characters are all so lovable and iconic and Tom Holland’s script and direction just nail it on every possible level. It’s funny, it’s frightening, and it’s an absolute treat to watch that holds up to this day. I would go so far as to say it’s Holland’s best movie - an impressive claim considering this man brought us Child’s Play and the criminally underappreciated Psycho II. If you’ve never seen it, this Halloween season is the perfect time to welcome yourself… to Fright Night!

Reasons to watch Hellsing Ultimate

  • Puts religion in a positive light on both the protestant and catholic sides
  • Badasses. Badasses everywhere. Even the butler and on the catholic side. 
  • Single lady Integra Fairbrooke Wingates Hellsing (runs an entire vampire/ghoul killing estate and got no time for a man u v u)
  • An ass-kicking yet bumbly and silly police girl with cannons (bitches love cannons)
  • Comic relief mixed in with beautiful and flowing action 
  • Engaging monologues (this anime has some of the best voice acting you’ll ever hear in an English dub) 
  • The perfect Halloween anime. Go watch while the season is still fresh!
