Welcome, welcome, to the 75th Annu- wait, wait, that’s not it, sorry…I was getting distracted there. Too many amazing movies and novels in my mind brimming over the seams that sometimes my mind just goes in to quote mode. What I meant to say is “Welcome to another hijacked suggestions post where you get to hear all about Lilith’s favorite things”, and today I am bringing you a character that I have come to admire for all his idiosyncrasies, a true oddity amongst the world of horror, right down to his name. The first novel in the series is named after this touching person: Odd Thomas is the first in a series about a boy named Odd by Dean Koontz, and it is my pleasure to suggest this series to you all.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all you ghost lovers out there, this one is for you! I think by now all our readers know that Lilith here is crazy for creatures, star-struck with space travel, lusting over a few vampires, and fixated on zombies. But there is one genre out there that I just can’t muster the courage to get in to: ghost movies, books, and TV shows. I just can’t do ghosts, much like Indiana Jones can’t do snakes. I try to justify this insurmountable fear of mine by the fact that you can’t kill ghosts. If I was faced with other monsters I could hopefully bash in their brains to destroy them, shoot them with silver bullets to weaken them, or maybe even become one of them and in some cases I would be ok with that. But you can’t do any of that with ghosts, you just have to deal with their tormenting and torturing you in your own personal hell.
So moving on now to our topic today, a funny story about Lilith involves her taking her mother out to see a movie for her birthday while she was in college simply because it starred their favorite science fiction/adventure actor, Harrison Ford. Not knowing exactly what the movie What Lies Beneath was about, we figured we couldn’t go wrong with Ford, and were expecting some sort of science fiction, Minority Report type thriller based on the title and posters for the movie. What followed was a movie that will probably haunt me now for the rest of my life.
