When it comes to subject matter for a first post. Many of thoughts flow through my mind. Should I just dive in and do a review, rant about Halloween, think of click bait, a practice run on sentences or close my laptop and watch a film. Try not to use words like troupe and genre film. Yes, I realize the irony of using them just then. So fuck it, I guess I’ll start with the January troupe of New Year resolutions.
I don’t mean as in I’m looking to work out more, go back to school or save more money. I find most people enjoy the ideology of it all but lack the follow through after the first week. I on the other hand just intend to spend more time with things I like to do the most i.e.: horrors moves! As much as I enjoy these movies I don’t think I really spend that much time exploring it. We all have our favorites, Halloween musts and of course the one! You know that one, when you find out your friend, has never seen it and you have to stop everything to show it to them ASAP! For me, that film is the 1983 gem Sleepaway Camp. Pretty sure most of you have heard of it or surely have seen it. If not, I’ll be happy to show you!
Over the years I’ve viewed many films. A lot of bad ones, a lot of horrible ones and some of the best ones. Directed by the masters of horror Argento, Carpenter, Cohen, Coscarelli, Hooper, Landis, and Miike. Let’s not forget the new class as well. Abrams, Blum, Ho, Flanagan, Mancini, Peele, Shyamalan, Soska, Wan, and Whannell. Before anyone gets their asshole all clenched. I’m well aware these later names aren’t masters yet. However, I’ve enjoyed their bodies of work. Which of gets me excited about their projects yet to come. Also, I’m aware that some of these names are more so known for their productions companies.
For me, horror is defiantly in a renaissance period right now. This is a great time to pay attention to everything going on in the community. Which I just need to get to my point. Right now is an exciting time for horror! It seems that the era of the remake is finally dead. I want to explore it and fucking enjoy it.
