Finally: Let the Fright Nights Begin!

I'm more than a little worried about the nightmares this will bring, but it's October, and I'm going back to my roots, y'all! I never would have gone to school for film had it not been for many of these, which is not to say that I spent my time in class studying the ideology of Damian Omen and various tints of stage blood, far from it. I'm still trying to get away from a nagging tendency to drag my sentences on and on and on after reading years worth of French film theory translated into English. . .


Here are the films, *please* weigh in if you have anything to say both now and in the upcoming posts, I could talk about this shit all night, in fact, call me or FB me if you want to watch any. Matt has already said he's opting out, and he's the one that isn't bothered by any of this! Me, I'll probably be sleeping with the lights on, starting tonight.

2. The Ring
3. House on Haunted Hill

Gag. That whole photo collection is already giving me goosebumps. Anyway, hope you enjoy. This comes of course with the October book stack, as if I don't have enough stuff to make me crazy with fear, right? Well, Hunter Thompson said it best, anything worth doing is worth doing right.
