Have You Ever Seen: ThanksKilling

I am a huge fan of Netflix. It’s my go to device for movies. If I haven’t seen a movie, I go there. If I want to watch some old sitcoms, I go there. If I need to relax and watch a cheesy horror movie, I go there. Today was a “cheesy horror movie” night. Before I watched this movie, my sister lent me a movie to watch. It was called, “For Sale By Owner”. Tom Skeritt was in it. I know him from Picket Fences but I really remember him from Poltergeist III. FSBO wasn’t very good. It was a slow movie. The ending was the director and/or writer telling the viewers,

“Eff you. Everything you just watched meant nothing. I’m bringing in Phantom Indians and Cannibal Pilgrims. How about them apples?”

I understand the ending to some extent but there are some questions that still linger about what really went on. It was a cheap ending that makes the viewers feel dumb. Don’t bother paying any attention to what is going on. At the end, you’re spoon fed everything.

Have You Ever Seen: Mr. Boogedy

Another movie from my childhood is a Disney movie. Every Sunday night, Disney treated people to “The Wonderful World of Disney”. The movie aired back in 1986. I was 7 years old when it came out. I cannot recall if the movie scared me or not.  The movie is about a family that moves to a small New England town to set up shop with their Gag City business. The house they move into is haunted by the hamburger face ghoul named, Mr. Boogedy and a sick child named Jonathan. But if the movie Troll scared me, I bet this did too. Mr. Boogedy is truly a fantastic movie. The movie even spawned a sequel, “The Bride of Boogedy”. Was it as good as the first one? No. Not many sequels ever surpass the original.

Top Ten Scary Movies

JasonWhy does it always seem that people want to know what your favorite movie is? That’s a really hard question to answer on the spot. I have hundreds of movie I can say are my favorite. But to choose just one? I don’t think anyone can. I thought about it and decided to change the format of this topic. I was going to just do a top ten of my all time favorite movies but that is not going to satisfy me. Why not do a top ten list of genres? This way, I can give you at least 50+ movies that I can say I love dearly. Since I love the horror genre more than anything, I’ll start with that. This thing is going to be hard. I don’t base this off of current trends or what other people say should be on the list. These are my personal favorites. Hopefully, I can continue this category weekly. I’ll just have to think of how many genres there are. Now, on with the list!
