My friend Laurie is having a scary movie, pumpkin carving party Friday night. I am so excited! I saw the coolest Halloween cookies at Fred Meyer, so I am gonna buy those. I am also gonna bake either brownies or chocolate peanut butter banana pie. I have been in the mood to bake for awhile. I am also gonna get some cider. I love Fall! And this is gonna be so much fun! I am gonna bring these movies

-The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
-The Scream Trilogy
-The Wicker Man
-The Omen

I also saw some little kids Halloween cartoon DVDs when I went and bought Click and The Wicker Man that I am tempted to buy. ^_^ And I think I am going to get them. I think I might get Wolf Creek Unrated. So good! But honestly, I think it may be too intense for some peeps.

Listening/Watching: "Be My Escape" by Relient K

Hehe, I love how whenever you put a lyric as your headline thinger, it never matches the song you're listening to. XD

Oooh, scary movie night sounds great! I usually watch horror movies with my mom, and I think we're going to see The Grudge 2 sometime soon (I saw the first Grudge movie with her in the theater on Halloween last year [I think it came out last year...] so now we kinda HAVE to go see the second one together!)

I loooove apple cider, I wish it was available year-round!

Let me know how Wicker Man is, I wanted to see it but heard mixed things about it...

LOL. Well, "Float On" was what was on when I started posting, but "Be My Escape" came on towards the end of the entry :D

It's the original Wicker Man. It says on the cover that it is "The Citizen Kane of horror movies". I hated Citizen Kane, LOL. Well, not really. But I think I had to pee when I watched it, and so I was more than miffed at the ending. Nicolas Cage, I don't know if I will ever forgive you for this, hehehe.

I really wanna see The Grudge 2! So, be sure to tell me how that is.

I didn't even realize Wicker Man was a remake! I should have realized that the Nic Cage one was JUST in theaters (it might even still be playing, now that I think about it) and it's not possible for that to be the one you jsut got on dvd...

Allee: halloweenalleelady_lyca on October 11th, 2006 08:31 pm (UTC)
Hehehe...I hadn't heard of the original until I saw this countdown on Bravo of the 101 Scariest Movie Moments. Apparently it's a cult classic. It has Christoper Lee, so I am sure it is at least OK.

And hey, movies come out on DVD hella fast now! So, ya never know. :P
