Friday the 13th Part 3

Directed by: Steve Miner

Release Date: 1982

Released in yours' truly birth year and in the gimmicky 3D presentation that has become ubiquitous (almost) with some horror pictures of our current horror film climate, this film didn't try to change the franchise's formula one bit. And you know what? This formula worked for this horror fan. Although this film received the worst reviews during its theatrical run, the deaths are to be remembered in addition to the movie when Jason's mask is introduced.

Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil

Directed by: Eli Craig

Release Date: 2011 (limited)

Tyler Labine (Dale) is the best thing about this movie, hands down! His delivery, his cuteness, his shyness and oh I could gush so much but I'll stop, was utterly irresistible in this movie. Overall, I'd have to say the movie was a major fail.

Cabin In the Woods

Directed by: Joss Whedon

Release Date: 2012

On Monday, April 9, 2012, I had the opportunity to watch a free screening of this movie. After the opening title sequence was shown, I was hooked. Not only did this movie have the campiness from Evil Dead but anything and everything Joss Whedon related. And if that's not enough, well then I don't know what is!

The Vampire Diaries - Season 1

Early April, on a whim, I decided to watch the pilot of a show Netflix recommended under "TV Drama with a Strong Female Lead."

I have two friends who are completely encapsulated in this world but I couldn't be bothered. I was watching Angel, re-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer sporadically, and everything but this.

After watching the pilot, I was completely hooked!!

Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Directed by: Tommy Lee Wallace

Release Date: 1982

"Happy, happy Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, happy, happy Halloween, Silver Shamrock!" (played to the same tune of "London Bridge is Falling Down").

The Halloween jingle to the Halloween store Silver Shamrock is played repeatedly throughout the movie. The repetition foreshadows the horror the Silver Shamrock company embodies.
