October Horror Movie Challenge

Alright, perverts, tomorrow is the first day of October and therefore the first day of the October Horror Movie Challenge. I don't REALLY think of this as a challenge because I watch at least one horror movie a day, sometimes two or three on my days off, but this will at least give me some sense of community and hopefully get me posting. My selections are as random as my moods, so this might spice up things here at the Cavalcade, as I seem to just watch 70's exploitation and dress up my cats. Case in point, last night I watched 80's trainwreck WITCHBOARD starring Tawyne Kitaen and the night before that, the Troma classic REDNECK ZOMBIES. I just never know. It could be anything. Intrigued yet? I didn't think so.

Secondly, tonight I am attending the VA State Fair. You might remember my fair posts from years gone by and this year will hopefully be equally as littered with sideshows, creepy animals, and lots and lots of disgusting food. It's the one time of year where J.Astro and I can agree on dietary choices. Check back for updates!

See you all in the Challenge!

Reasons Why Sssssss is Fucking Awesome

1. It features a snake-obsessed mad scientist antagonist named Dr. Stoner.

2. There is a carnival/fair/sideshow element integrated into the mad scientist plot.

3. A man is turned into a snake, not only once, but twice (it's two different dudes, sorry if I didn't really word that correctly), and we get to see the results at varying times.

4. Heather Menzie's hair. Seriously, what is up with her hair? It's horrible, but also awesome.

5. It's from the seventies.

6. It's name is an onomatopoeia and how often do I get to say that, both the word 'onomatopoeia' and that a title of a film is one?

7. The man snake looks fucking creepy and rad, even though he's sad because he's in the freak show.

8. All the snake milking scenes (of which there was a certain sideshow quality to as well) were apparently real. That, and I got to use the words 'snake milking' in a sentence and attest to their reality.

9. There's a mongoose, who eventually saves the day, if you count taking down the man-snake and subsequent object of Heather Menzie's character's affection as saving the day, which I do.

10. There's a love plot involving a half-reptile/half-man and Heather Menzies.

The only way this could have been better is if Ray Milland had showed up.

Expound on your Sssssss love in the comments.

Moochie As Shark

Moochie might be a shark for Halloween. He hasn't decided. He might be a banana. An evil, chow-eating, vomiting-all-over-the-house, being-really-noisy-in-the-mornings banana. It's a toss up.
