My Horror Shelfie!

New vlog series where I talk about my horror movie collection. Here's what it's all about:

(I'm not happy with the audio/video quality of the intro. :/ It gets better in episode 1.)

And the first episode:

How I Met Jason Voorhees

Let me set the scene:

It was 1986, I was 9 years old, I was in the hospital, and it was nighttime. In the morning, surgeons would remove my appendix -a procedure which I would wake up in the middle of and flail my arms around like a lunatic- but for the time being, I was watching television while tucked in my bed. Nurses came in repeatedly to check on me, make sure I wasn't eating or drinking anything, and constantly reminding me that I needed to go to sleep soon. For the life of me, I cannot remember what channel or what show I was watching but it may have been MTV or possibly USA's "Night Flight". Suddenly, they announced that there was a new Friday the 13th film in theaters and began to play a music video with clips from the movie.

The song was "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)" by Alice Cooper. How much I knew of either Cooper or Jason Voorhees at that time was negligible at best. I hadn't yet had my brain happily poisoned with the first or second Friday the 13th films but their time was coming. So for now I just had this rad and wildly catchy song and rather intriguing clips from the fifth sequel of a franchise that so far -due to my young age- had escaped me. The memory of being tucked under a pile of blankets in an ice cold hospital room and seeing these two monsters for the first time is one that I cherish to this day.

And here is that music video:

Zombie Movies

Partly due to the passing of the great George Romero and partly due to a discussion with my pal, the great Simon (Creatures of Light and Darkness), I have compiled a list of my favorite zombie movies. As I was talking with Simon, the list kept growing, especially after he sent me his and I was like "oh snap, I'll steal pretty much all of these, thank you". Then the Wiki happened and then my meager list began to morph into its very own horde of the hungry dead. I'm not going to bother with that whole "so what is the appeal of the zombie film?" pontification paragraph. Let's just get rad.

Night of the Living Dead
Night of the Living Dead (1990)
Let Sleeping Corpses Lie
The House by the Cemetery
Zombi 2
Zombi 3
Horror Rises from the Tomb
City of the Living Dead
White Zombie
