You're in the picture, my dear, because as Oscar Wilde once said, "I can't reach it with my mouth!"

So I think I'm going to have a little mini horror marathon tomorrow night. If Netfux cooperates with me, that is.

DM and I were IM'ing about having horror marathons for Halloween (he's coming home early from South Africa and will be back home by then), and I was saying how I've been waiting for this new cult favorite to come out, it was a big midnight movie around the country: The Human Centipede.

If you're not into horror movies, don't even bother. Because it's a little bit fucked up.

So I bumped up some horror films because goddammit, I want to have a little mini-thon this weekend now. (Assuming I get all my shit done for Sunday, of course.) And then I was mentioning some of the other older horror films I'd never gotten around to seeing, one of which was Cat People. DM hadn't seen it either, and sent me the trailer. Oh my.

I have seen parts of it over the years, and this brings them back. But holy jesus, this is just straight-up MST3K material, if you ask me.

I still have The Orphanage laying around because I'm lazy and haven't seen it yet and I added The Howling, since I only saw it once about 20 years ago. And 80s werewolf movies are bound to be a good thing...right?

Now to get some work done so I can play later!

Ahaha, how did you miss Cat People in our childhood?? (You were probably doing something worthwhile.) I had the LP, which has beautiful cover art and a cool David Bowie song. The movie is the most incredible shit (and I rewatched it a yr or so to make sure). Enjoy--it's a good laugh in the bad way. ;)

(Ditch The Howling and watch Wolfen!)

I vividly remember large chunks, but pretty sure I never saw the whole thing??

I do need to see Wolfen again...I gotta add that, too...

And heck yeah, I need a good laugh in the bad way. ;)

Um. I don't remember Cat People? I will have to rewatch! Maybe I blocked it out.
