Halloween Movie Watching Spectacular

October Horror Movie Challenge over. Here's the playlist.

1. HEAD OF THE FAMILY (1996). Totally Full Moon and totally way more talking than I remember from when I watched this in the early nineties. The sassy Jaqueline Lovell steals the show as the white trash Loretta. I remember her from another Full Moon production, HIDEOUS, and all I can really remember is her topless wearing a gorilla mask and strong-arming someone with a pistol.

2. FRIGHT NIGHT (1985). The original. I love Chris Sarandon in this, his greatest role, a slacks-and-turtleneck-wearing, apple-chomping vampire named Jerry.

3. CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (1954). Quite possibly my favorite misunderstood monster (who I also sport a tattoo of). I can't pick a favorite Universal classic, but this comes close.

I can now go back to falling asleep even MORE during movie watching.


  1. I love the angel-like halo around the head of your beautiful tattoo. Saint Creature.

  2. I will always love that tattoo. Going to catch up on all these brilliant posts I've missed. Sending you big love, my dear. xxx

  3. Mykal, I know! That was added in at the last minute. Good choice.

    Jinx, looking forward to you getting back to bloggin! Love you! xoxo

  4. I love both Fright Night films. Part 2 is very under rated. Creature form the Black Lagoon will be playing on the big screen at one our local indy theatres in glorious 3-D. The wife can hardly wait to see it!!

  5. That's the coolest tattoo ever. The nice thing about the Challenge being over is that I can actually go back and give all the posts I linked to a serious read.

  6. Thanks!

    I've been doing the same thing! I have so much reading to catch up on! And now I feel like when I watch a movie, I should be writing about it, which is not a bad thing :)
