Lets discuss horror and Halloween related media.
Tis the season for Halloween.
I have been on a real horror movie and show binge lately.
I watch that sort of thing year round but I like to really get into the spirit of Halloween in a way that I can’t get into most holidays. I get a little depressed every November 1st that Halloween season has ended.
But it’s kinda like being a long time stoner on 4/20 where it’s really just a business as usual holiday.
I recently rewatched most of the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes.
My favorite is the Shinning parody. I think it is funny, memorable and a really good parody of one of my favorite movies.
I recently visited the Stanley Hotel the story was based on. It wasn’t too far from where I live in Colorado.
The hotel was beautiful and they had pictures of Stephen King and stills from Dumb and Dumber (which also featured the hotel).
We even went on a cheesy ghost tour as a family which I wouldn’t recommend but it was fine for what it was and I was glad to see more of the hotel.
I’m also reading the book The Shinning but as much as I love Stephen King, I’m just a slow reader and it’s a long book.
The moment in the movie that sticks with me the most is the guy in the dog costume who looks right in the camera with a look of shame after presumably giving oral to an old guy in a room. It was near the end and it’s just so unsettling for so many reasons.
Some easy questions for the discussion:
What are some of your favorite horror movies, shows, books or tv specials?
What do you like/hate about halloween?
What was the most memorable costume you’ve seen someone wear?
How old were you when you started watching scary movies and do you handle them better now vs then?
What is your go to halloween song and why is it Thriller?
What is your favorite horror movie soundtrack/composer?
What sort of horror movies or genres are you into/dislike?
What is your favorite candy to get on halloween?
Do you listen to any horror podcasts?
