Well Halloween has been my favorite holiday from childhood through adulthood. Unfortunately almost 5 years ago October became an emotional land mine for me. My brother died about a week and a half before Halloween. Then last year my 11 year old dog died the week before Halloween. My dog was basically like a son to me.

So even though Halloween has and always will be full of fun activities like wearing costumes (my favorite, as you well know), horror movies, passing out candy and partying, October is now very depressing for me. This year the hurricane also cast a pall over everything.

Prior to Halloween I was able to dress up once, as Minnie Mouse, to attend a party at a local club. You can check out some cute couples’ costumes from that party here. Plus I was able to see the flick Frankenweenie with my man. It was good but also sad because of the aforementioned death of my dog. We also enjoyed some of my old favorites, Hocus Pocus and Once Bitten at various times.

Some things were out. Hayrides were either too expensive or at inopportune times (plus it was raining often, big surprise, rain is so obtrusive in PA). The party that I was hoping that we could both go to in costume ended up being a bust so we didn’t go. Plus though trick or treating wasn’t cancelled, no children showed up due to the Hurricane and cold.

However despite all of that and my having an appointment with a stranger on Halloween morning (you know how terrible that is with my severe social anxiety), I had an amazing Halloween day. I really wanted to cheer myself up and feel sexy for when my man came over. So I wore this. Usually when you see outfit photos I have worn them out of my house or at least with a group of family at my house during a holiday or gathering. However only my man (and now you, xd) have seen this. Yes, it’s similar to my Sandy outfit (link below) but I’d definitely say sexier.

In addition to dressing up in sex kitten mode, we also had more Halloween fun. We watched Casper and I introduced him to Army of Darkness (ah, Bruce Campbell). My man isn’t a big horror movie fan but he totally got into it. Who can resist Bruce Campbell’s one liners? Plus we ate some Halloween candy. Hey, the trick or treaters never turned up, someone’s gotta do it. We also enjoyed the Rob Zombie channel that we created on Pandora. It was truly a lovely, romantic day (as I not so elegantly captured in this tweet).

FAO Schwarz Muppet Whatnot Workshop-You can order your own custom muppet. It’s $99 but that doesn’t actually seem too bad considering that it’s a freakin’ muppet. How neat. I designed this one just for fun.

Sabrina & Salem: Together Again-Melissa Joan Hart and Nick Bakay star in this hilarious video.

My Drunk Kitchen, Ep. 12: Pizza-pizza, it’s the best

What Girls Do When They’re Drunk-Jenna Marbles being hilarious, yet accurate, as per usual.

Lust for Love Movie Facebook page-Basically everyone who was part of the cast of the amazing Dollhouse (aside from Eliza Dushku), including Enver Gjokak, Dichen Lachman, Fran Kranz, Miracle Laurie and Maurissa Tancharoen, raised money via Kickstarter to make an independent romantic comedy (how did I miss this campaign?). So cool. FYI-they were casting extras recently on there too. Plus there are a bunch of behind the scenes pics.

Ice Cube Is Bringing Friday Back!!-They are officially making a new Friday movie, very cool.

Lushworthy Creations: “Lush Cider” (Created Using Conjure Cognac & Smirnoff Whipped Cream) Recipe-This sounds so yummy. Unfortunately I live in a police state that has outdated liquor laws so there isn’t much selection. That means that, no, no one around here sells Ludacris’ Cognac (which I’ve been wanting to try forever). Ludacris even tweeted about this recipe, so it’s LudaApproved!

Want to ring Charlie Sheen for a chat? Here’s his number-Some brave souls called the number, read/watch what happened.

I Played Phone Tag With Charlie Sheen-I normally would never link you to Jezebel (yuck) but this is pretty interesting and I came across it after reading the above post.

“Dear Alec Baldwin…”-He makes some good points about Alec Baldwin, his recent airline complaint and public perception versus the characters that an actor plays.

Hobo drink a too much from David Arquette’s twitter. It’s a video of him basically just playing with some Christmas figures. Maybe is amuses me because my sister and I used to do that as kids.

The 50 Best Animal Photos Of 2011-If you love animals then check these out, a mix of adorable and sad shots.

Vegan, Sugar Free, Carrot Cake Cookies Recipe-These sound very tasty.

Happy 51st Julianne Moore. What’s Next?-If you are a fan then you should definitely read this (and Nathaniel’s interview with her from 2010 that he links to).

Nicki Minaj Barbie doll: Would you buy one for your kids?-I don’t have a dog in this fight (I’m not a mom) but this doll freakin’ adorable. They should mass market them.

Best $2k I Ever Spent! Iggy & The Stooges Rock The Palladium Like Zombie Kings-espouses how Iggy is still super awesome in concert.

First Look: Angry, Trident-Wielding Perseus from ‘Wrath of the Titans’-I am a fan of Clash of the Titans so I am definitely psyched about this sequel.

Stocking Stuffers: 13 Writing Tips From Chuck Palahniuk-Hey fellow writers, here are some great tips from one of my favorite authors.

The importance of being alone-a good read. I’ve been alone (not always by choice) much of my life but I have female friends who never do stuff alone and they always tell me when they do because they know that I will be proud of them. FYI-You do need to be prepared if you are heading somewhere with a lot of misogynists (ex. dive bar) because they may insult you, just a heads up (it does happen). I rarely have problems at the theater or restaurants though.

The Lords of Salem-Rob Zombie has a new horror movie coming out next year about a radio station. The cast includes Sheri Moon Zombie, Dee Wallace, Billy Drago, Ken Foree, Bruce Davison, Christopher Knight, Michael Berryman, Sid Haig, Patricia Quinn, Clint Howard and Udo Kier.

The Horde (French) (2009) 
The Horde is a French zombie movie. It centers around a group of cops and criminals trying to escape from zombie. I found some of the un-PC humor in the movie a bit off putting but dug the zombie’s makeup.

The Walking Dead (Seasons 1-3)

I hope the cast in the top photo looks interesting to you because you aren’t going to see many of these zombies.

I’ve already mentioned what I think about this series. Basically that it’s a bit low on actual zombies and a bit long in the tooth on stories that aren’t wrapped up. I still think that it’s very cool/interesting that there is a zombie series on TV.

Resident Evil (2002)
milla dog ra
Yes, the original Resident Evil film. BTW-Netflix should get the others as well. This series is based on the video game series. The basic plot (in case you live in a whole in the ground) is that an evil company has created a zombie virus that has spread. It stars the gorgeous and talented Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez and Eric Mabius (!).

The Evil Dead (Not Currently Available)/Evil Dead 2 (1981/1987)
The Evil Dead is the first film in the Evil Dead series. I also highly recommend both sequels which are hilarious. It’s about some college students who accidentally awaken the dead using The Book of the Dead while vacationing at a cabin in the woods. I recommend reading about the making of the films in Bruce Campbell’s book, If Chins Could Kill.

Night of the Living Dead (1968) 

Of course this is the classic George Romero movie about zombies attacking survivors in a farmhouse in Pennsylvania.

Bonus: Info on the Romero Dead series is here.

White Zombie (1932)

This movie is notable for being the first feature length zombie movie and the namesake of Rob Zombie’s band. It centers on an adorable woman who moves to the West Indies to marry her sweetheart. As soon she gets there 2 guys (one played by an overly widow’s peaked out Bela Lugosi) fall for her. They also learn a bit about the local zombies, which are voodoo zombies. They are basically just some undead unattractive locals who are being used as free labor.

The evil Lugosi character decides to make the young bride into his “white zombie”. Due to the film’s age the sound is very low (you are going to have to turn your TV’s volume way up) and the editing is a bit rough. The movie is slow and not a ton of action takes place but if you are a zombie movie freak then you probably want to check it out, like I did.

NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

Otto; or Up With Dead People (Canadian/German) (2008)



I was intrigued by the photos for this movie. That guy is mighty hot for a zombie, right? Then I read this user review on Netflix and knew that I had to watch it. “This is basically a gay pornographic zombie horror themed movie, with a movie in a movie story, and strong political/social statements.” That isn’t the full extent of the film but is a good summary. I wasn’t sure about including this title after I watched it because it’s definitely not like other zombie movies…or other movies at all.

It involves a teen who believes he is a zombie and an underground experimental filmmaker who hires him to star in her zombie movie. It also seems to veer from espousing the filmmakers views (some meaningful on conformity and consumerism) to heavily satirizing her as another over the top experimental filmmaker. If you are homophobic don’t watch this movie (it includes a few full frontal gay sex scenes, though not usually sexy because of the gore) After you watch it read this, which was my ultimate conclusion (except they did use that word). I also found this comment interesting (and I also find that woman’s films creepy).

The Return of the Living Dead (1985) (Not Currently Available)


This is my all time favorite zombie movie. It’s hilarious and scary. A group of punk teens and a few odd adults end up fighting off the undead, first in a medical supply warehouse and later a mortuary. Everyone in the cast is amazing.

If you fall in love with this movie you will definitely want to check out the recent documentary and book about it. If you have the original VHS then keep it because all of the US releases have different music because of licensing issues. FYI: The sequel, Return of the Living Dead 2 is so bad that it’s good. Pass on the later sequels though.

Night of the Comet (1984) (Available Until: 08/16/2036)


This is a doomsday movie about a couple of valley girl type sisters who end up being some of the last survivors after a comet hits and turns everyone else into zombies. It’s a pretty fun little movie.

Bonus: Read Agent Lover’s review of the film (with screencaps).

The Dead Hate the Living (2000) (Not Currently Available)


I’m a big fan of this indie horror movie. It’s about some gung ho independent horror filmmakers who end up using a building to shoot in that actually has real evil in it. Then the director decides to incorporate it into the movie.

Masters of Horror: Tobe Hooper: Dance of the Dead (2005) (Not Currently Available)

I find the Masters of Horror series from Showtime to be very interesting. Some of the installments are great while others fall flat. Most still have an intriguing premise though. This episode is about a teen girl who is being sheltered by her mother to keep her safe from zombies and other nefarious people. However she ends up running off with some miscreants and arriving at the creeptastic bar (with imprisoned dancing zombies) run by Robert Englund’s character. The twist and ending are disturbing.
