A little bit weird is good, it’s almost healthy to be a little weird because then you end up standing out from the crowd. Too much weird, and you might end up in a locked room. The fact that there is a very fine line separating the weird and the crazy in the following shows, is what makes them great.
This month is an overall challenge for me, but this week’s theme has me struggling the most. The thing is, I know some of these picks don’t make sense but I haven’t seen any horrific technology movies. So I more or less went with the idea that scientific breakthroughs can be scary themselves as a possible future outcome. So more or less, I cheated, but I had fun doing it.
Well well well, this week I’m struggling a little less because most horror films are dark and happen during the night time. Lucky me! So it was more about selecting the darkest horror movies I have already seen, rather than watching new ones. Here are (almost) three horror films I would recommend.
It’s that time of the year again.. where I struggle every week because my horror knowledge is still limited. It’s gotten better! But it’s still not enough to fill four weeks of horror related context. In other words, let’s get ready for my struggle! First up, home invasion horror films that make us feel a lot less safe at our homes.
Well well well, I fucking did it! I’m sorry for cursing but I’m so damn proud of myself that I kept at it for an entire year! I decided to participate in Thursday Movie Picks in 2016 but I picked it up at the end of August so that year technically didn’t count. This year though, I was successful (with one minor mishap of publishing on a Friday instead), and I figured, before I publish my last Thursday Movie Picks of 2017 tomorrow, that I’ll create a list of all my picks from this year. Oh and yes, I will continue picking movies every Thursday in 2018 as well!
Finally, the moment where I can breathe during October because I know what to recommend without thinking that hard about it. And even though these picks aren’t really surprising, they all have had a really strong season or a few under their belt. Plus some very terrifying moments.
Last hurdle before I can finally breathe with relief because I don’t have to rack my brain to come up with recommendations for horror edition! Next week is Television Edition time and for that, I have my delicious picks all lined up, so this is in some ways, the finishing line for me (hopefully not towards a horrific end). Anyway, here are my 3 recommendations, one of which is my absolute fave and I just had to mention it!
Another week in the Halloween Edition theme and I’m again stumped for my picks. It’s not surprising though, I knew already in the beginning of the year, when I saw the October theme, that I was going to struggle a bit. So here I am, a week later, struggling to recommend movies with creepy dolls.
Well.. this is going to be a hell of a month for me when it comes to Thursday Movie Picks because I will be outside my comfort zone the entire time. In other words, I’m not that good with horror related movies, and when I say not that good, I mean I suck at watching them. So there’s no surprise there when I say that I’ve seen only a few, which makes this month a very tight squeeze, and this week’s theme of “masks” is not the best fit either.
