It’s been a while since we did a top 5, but our friends at Mancrates.com asked us what our ultimate list of items we’d need to survive a horror movie might be. Now that right there is an excellent question! In fact, so excellent that it takes more than one Evil Geek to give a great answer since there are all different types of movies in the genre, so keep reading to see what the Geeks need to survive!!!
I would like to start off just by saying that I am omitting the use of supernatural or magical means of surviving in a horror movie…mainly because that’s all I was going to use. I really did just want to lightning the fuck out of everything, but considering that most horror movies, with some exclusions, revolve around your everyday, normal human being attempting to overcome the odds, I will stick to just the usual means of survival…unfortunately. Counting down…
5.) Any type of bladed object
There is almost nothing as handy as solid steel in your hands when you’re involved in some sort of survival situation. Take Liam Neeson and those wolves. They show up in the middle of the night, kidnap his wife, and then start eating the souls of all the neighborhood children. He is left with no other choice but to murder them with extreme prejudice. Like, I’m saying he made up derogatory names for wolves….and they sounded pretty wolfist. A knife is going to be a pretty solid bet to ensure your heart remains beating well beyond whatever nightmare you currently find yourself in. It’s easily carried, handles pretty well, and can go easily in and out of rotting demon flesh. If you happen to have a sword, spear or axe in your possession, you chances of staying alive have almost infinitely expanded, just like the open chest cavity of whatever fell beast has dared to balk at you.
I actually debated on whether or not you would really need food in most horror movies, but in terms of a zombie apocalypse, fuck yes you will. If you are being chased by Jason Voorhees, grabbing a quick sandwich is most likely not on your mind, but trying to live in a world where almost every other person is trying to eat you, you’re going to need to find some grub. It’s a stark change in tactics when you are being hunted on a single night, maybe even two, as compared to when you have to make a living in a doomed world that has been stripped of nearly every goddamn twinkie, Baconator, and whatever else is considered food these days. I’d rather take Jason. Read the rest of this entry
It feels good to be home. I know I have been neglecting you as of late dear Horrors, but don’t think that I have completely forgotten. You are always on my mind. When I woke up this morning, I made a plan to do literally nothing all day, and it was a good plan. However, much like what happens whenever I decide to do nothing, I get pulled into something. This time, that something was a bit more violent than usual. After seeing the first Purge movie in the theaters a while ago, I was a bit disappointed to be honest. Why you ask? Well I’ll goddamn tell you.
You geeks ready to get zombified again? Cause Lilith here just checked out a unique zombie horror movie this week and can’t wait to tell you all about it. I am quite obsessed with zombies, and surprisingly not bored by the fact that the majority of those zombie novels and movies out there deal with the same predictable storylines or post-apocalyptic scenarios. That doesn’t mean that I don’t really appreciate someone who tries to approach the story from a different angle. And the movie Contracted did that in two ways: 1. The zombie virus was an STD; and 2. The story follows patient zero and ends when she has finally been fully zombified, before the actual zombie outbreak has occurred. I don’t know about you, but those are two angles I have never seen taken before with the zombie apocalypse before. So continue forward for my review of this unique movie, but beware of spoilers.
Well if it isn’t you guys again. Welcome back everyone to another edition of Horrors. This time, I’m actually doing something a bit more current, but putting it under the Horrors tag because fuck you that’s why. I kid, I kid. This round I am bringing to you a look at the new film, now in theaters, starring Ms Amy Pond herself, Karen Gillan. There are some other people in there….but you guys know that I like to make up names for people based on their roles in the film…..because it’s funny to me. So with that out of the way, let’s get to the reviewing.
