That Billy Loves Stu thing...

Guess I'll play along, too! My other posts I have planned are taking a while to write so I gotta have some kind of filler.

1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog:

Random horror thoughts in a girl's mind.

2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?
                                            A: The Classic Horror Era (late 30's to 40's)
                                            B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's)
                                            C: The Psycho Era ( Early 60's)
                                            D: The Rosemary's Baby Era (Mid to Late 60's)
                                            E: The Exorcism Era (Early to mid 70's)
                                            F: The Halloween Era (Late 70's to Early 80's)
                                            G: The Slasher Era (Mid to late 80's)
                                            H: The Self Referential/Post Modern Era (1990 to 1999)

1985, so I'm on the cusp of the Halloween and Slasher eras, although I guess I grew up more on slashers.
3: The Carrie Compatibility Question:
                                           (gay men and straight women - make your choice from section A)
                                           A: Billy Nolan or Tommy Ross, who would you take to the prom?
                                           (straight guys and lesbians - make your choice from section B)
                                           B: Sue Snell or Chris Hargensen, who would you take to the prom?

Ugh, I have to choose between those two dorks? I'm gonna go gay for this one and say Sue Snell.

4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money, and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?

Right now my dream is to see all of the Meg books made into movies! It's this kind of badly written but at the same time hella entertaining series of books about the giant prehistoric megalodon shark returning from the oceans depths and wreaking havoc! Four books out right now, but a fifth is on the way. I guess it's not really horror, probably more action, I'd say the shark eats enough people to get a special spot in that "animals run amok" group of horror films.

OR... I might take one of the ideas I've had and see what a real screenwriter can make of them. But I'm not going to share. Not yet.

5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?

Although I love the Freddy Krueger character, his whole franchise is kind of a joke, with the exception of the first one and New Nightmare. He's a not a scary killer in the others, he's a freaking comedian.

6:  Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?

You know what? No, he's not. Every movie that he's involved in has the exact same style no matter who is directing, but he's put out some enjoyable flicks - The Rock, Bad Boys, Transformers. I got to give him his cred.

7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?

The Wolf Man, because I would rather not be ripped apart and eaten, thank you.

8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:

Raiders of the Lost Ark! The opening scene and the final scene with the MELTING FUCKING FACES absolutely traumatized me as a kid. I used to stop the movie at the scene right before they opened the ark and call it a happy ending.

9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch.  What do you bring?

A plastic surgeon, copious amounts of Scotch, and a singing coach.

10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging?  Come, on you can tell me, it will be our little secret, I won't tell a soul.

Besides the entire Blogosphere? Well, I like to write and I love horror movies and since making them seems to be out of the question for now, I guess I'll have to write about them. Plus, I love seeing my stuff get "published" per se and seeing what other people think of it. I don't have anybody in my real life that I can talk about horror movies with anyway.

11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?

A video camera so she can actually show me what the fucking baby looks like.

12: Godzilla vs The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?

I admit: I don't know jack about Godzilla. But I hear he's pretty bad ass.

13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?

I'd say, buddy, you've got the original style and it worked the first two times around. Now let's get back to that. Oh, and H2 royally sucked and you should flog yourself for 37 days for making us watch it.

14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?

Oh god, it changes. Right now I'm really into hardcore dramas like Revolutionary Road, but I also still love the Scorsese gangster movies, especially Casino. But then I love classics like Gone with the Wind.

15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing?

Trying a little harder to get my career as a videographer off the ground.


  1. Great answers! Love number 11, if it works can I get a look at the footage of baby Woodhouse? Weirdly I've just begun reading the Meg books (halfway through the first) and I'd like to see you make those movies. You're right though it is a bit badly written and full of cliche characters, but I'm loving it. What's not to love, it's got a great big shark in it!!

  2. Oh, just wait until you get to the third one... the books get better and better (and more cliche)! There have actually been talks about making the films for years - the first one came out in 98 or around there - but somehow it always fell through. I think they would make excellent summer blockbusters.

  3. I haven't read the Meg books but a major production would be kinda cool; those SyFy movies are miserable!

  4. I just found this! Thanks for playing...that Meme of mine really got around.
