Forward Progress And Spooky Movies

Today there was forward momentum on cleaning and organizing.  It has made me happy. It was just what I needed to help get the soul moving again. Hope tastes like a truly decadent, chocolate dessert. 

Plus, since October 1st, The Husband and I have been watching old thriller movies in celebration of Halloween.  Monday was Hubie Halloween.  Tuesday was The Ghoul starring Peter Cushing.  Tonight was The Abominable Dr. Phones. 

What is on your movie watching list for Halloween if you have one? We are always looking for good and good-bad movies.

About Henrietta Handy

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

    My partner and I alternate choices. That said, the selections this month, which were supposedly horror-themed, have been rather odd.

    If you want intense, over-the-top Lovecraftian horror, there’s 2019’s “Color Out of Space.” (violence) Offbeat horror in 2013/14’s movie about English Civil War soldiers encountering a warlock in “A Field in England.” (violence, one odd scene of male genitalia) 2020’s “Shirley” features entirely unlikeable characters in psychological conflict overlaid with Shirley Jackson’s fiction, particularly her novel “Hangsaman.” (sexual content) I hope the thumbnail descriptions give you some idea of whether you’d enjoy any of these films. COoS is the most traditional, and definitely worth sitting back, turning your mind off, and enjoying the ride.

    Last month, we happened to see “Eve’s Bayou” from 1997, a film that mixes infidelity, voodoo, and possible incest. It gets back to the old problem: which is worse, what we do by magic, or what we do without it to each other?
