31 Horror Movies in “31 Days”| #Blogoween
For the month of October I have planned to watched 31 horror movies!
Today is my third day hosting Blogoween and it seemed only right I got y’all to pick out some of your favourite horror movies too.
Keep reading to find out the next 7 movies I watched for this gigantic task.
VENOM (2018): “When Eddie Brock acquires the powers of a symbiote, he will have to release his alter-ego “Venom” to save his life.”
I’m so glad I forced myself to get up early and see this before work, even with all the scathing reviews for this I 100% recommend checking it out.
Venom was such a fun movie, it made me laugh a fair bit and I thought it was a pretty good introductory story to the symbiotic relationship between Eddie and Venom. Downside is the story takes a bit to get going…
SPLINTER (2008): “When their plans for a nature trip go awry, Polly and boyfriend Seth decide to check into a motel. On their way, they’re carjacked and kidnapped by low-rent crooks Dennis and Lacey, who take the victims and their SUV to a nearby gas station. Along the way, they encounter an increasingly terrifying horde of parasites, and if any of them intend to survive, they’ll have to outsmart the deadly organisms.”
I’m often multitasking when I watch my movies however for this one it actually stole my attention a fair bit – so much so I even jumped at one point. This was such an interesting concept and I enjoyed seeing how this parasite manifested. Very spikey.
WARM BODIES (2013): “After a zombie becomes involved with the girlfriend of one of his victims, their romance sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world.”
I haven’t seen this movie since release and even though I’ve also read the book I couldn’t fully remember this one which made for a real nice second viewing!
Honestly forgot how much fun this was and how much I enjoyed it and the book. Very tempted to reread it too.
PRIEST (2011): “In an alternate world, humanity and vampires have warred for centuries. After the last Vampire War, the veteran Warrior Priest lives in obscurity with other humans inside one of the Church’s walled cities. When the Priest’s niece is kidnapped by vampires, the Priest breaks his vows to hunt them down. He is accompanied by the niece’s boyfriend, who is a wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess.”
Honestly I could’ve sworn I’d already seen this too but when watching it I really don’t think I had. I’m 100% down with the idea of Karl Urban always portraying vampires now because that was a good look on him.
This movie was kind of all over the place but I loved it. Definitely one you can pick up if you’re scared easily but want to enjoy a good vampire movie with some bad CGI.
CARRIE (1976): “Carrie White, a shy and troubled teenage girl who is tormented by her high school peers and her fanatically religious mother, begins to use her powers of telekinesis to exact revenge upon them.”
I finally watched an older Carrie movie! I’m disgusted in myself that I hadn’t until now.
It’s great. I love it! I’m not sure what else to say, it held my attention a lot better than the newest remake so hooray. It’s obviously bloody but I’d still recommend this to anyone.
And for anyone who really isn’t familar with Carrie, its like Matilda but gone very wrong…
JENNIFER’S BODY (2009): “A newly possessed cheerleader turns into a killer who specializes in offing her male classmates. Can her best friend put an end to the horror?”
Another rewatch for me and this one turned out to be just as fun this time round too. I honestly think I enjoyed it more this time if anything. Above anything this is a story about female friendships and I love how its explored, the humour and overall aesthetic for this movie is great.
MALEVOLENT (2018): “A brother-sister team who fake paranormal encounters for cash get more than they bargained for when a job at a haunted estate turns very, very real.”
Figured I’d try Netflix’s latest horror movie and its a mix of ghostly hauntings but also mad old ladies wanting some fun. So long as the fun involves murder.
This was a very average movie and I felt it played safe a lot of the time, however I did enjoy it. All I can think is I have definitely seen a lot worse
I hope you liked this post, I do tend to watch a lot of movies so this could become a regular thing if people are interested.
& thank you for making it this far and stopping by, right now I’m currently in Korea so my replies are likely to be slower than usual!
