Again, we’re hosting this horror film fest this weekend and we’re doing our research – watching and reading and studying and opinionating on films (though we’re only showing two, the other 8 films will be brought by the people who show up – yes, we’re showing 10 films total) and here’s an awesome quote I found in one review of The Shining:

It’s horror for people who know that true horror isn’t being stalked by a man in a mask, but being trapped alone with your family in a place with no TV.

That, my friends, is a brilliant insight.

    I’m glad to know I am not the only one planning a horror festival for this, my favorite time of year. My horror-phobic husband is forced to watch them with me, which only adds to the general sense of mayhem. I am jealous that you have someone so excited about screening movies with you!

    To bring my husband (an avid sci-fi freak) to the dark side, I went with a sci-fi bent, so this year we are watching: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), The Omega Man (1971), House of Wax (1973, and Pitch Black (2000). We’re spreading it out over each weekend this month, since he can’t take marathons. It’s pretty low-key, consisting of the two of us, lots of snacks and zero interruptions!
