Winchester Day Plans!  
okay, now that the rant is off my chest I can share with y'all my Winchester Day plans:

- work till 5 (dammit, there's not enough people here to leave early...)
- get caught up in the traffic past the airport (Glasgow Fair Friday, busiest day every year at Glasgow Airport)
- go to the supermarket and hope they still have that offer on beer going.
- buy lots of beer and sweeties. (Strawberry laces... mmmm)
- head home and put the pizza in the oven (I have no pizza takeout anywhere near me that's worth buying from...)
- turn off the lights and my phone and watch the following films:
Wrong Turn (haven't actually watched it, I've watched other people watching it though. It's a strange way to watch a film!)
The Beast Must Die (Oh how I love that oh-so-cheerful big black Alsation werewolf!)
House of Wax (thank you aditu_az!)
John Carpenter's Vampires
and maybe Devour...

And of course there will be a couple of episodes of SPN in there as well just to remind me what the whole purpose of the day...

And there may be SPN fic. Maybe. For some reason I feel a bit odd writing R rated (or higher, it might get higher if the characters have their way) at work, even on lunchbreak... so if I can get over that uncomfortableness, there will be fic written today (might not be posted till later on in the weekend because this one will need some serious betaing first)

Speaking of fic and beta reading (and me completely and utterly abandoning a principle... *g*). wenchpixie is dabbling in J2 RPS. (PG-13). The first she's written (Candy Kisses) was so damn sweet and adorable that I was hooked in. And I beta read the follow up Sugar Lips last night. It's awesome. Go, read, adore. (yeah... I'm reccing RPS. Hell has frozen over...)

I'm collecting horror film recs from folks in the office so I'll throw it open here: What are the best horror films you've seen and would recommend I get ahold of? (office suggestions so far: Candyman, The Vanishing (original), Nightmare on Elm St (first one), Event Horizon.)

As far as horror/thriller recs, what you'll get from me will be old and odd: Svengali, Mad Love (starring Peter Lorre and Colin Clive), Cat People (the original, not that nasty thing with Nastassja Kinski), I Walked With a Zombie...

Shanghai Surprise with Madonna - Oh wait you don't want that kind of horror.... *shudders with the repressed memory*

Umm I don't like horror movies that much but I'd go classic and say 'The Birds' or is that a thriller?

And yes strawberry laces yummmmmm I have to eat them all.

Ooo, The Birds! I forgot about that one! (do I still have my Hitchcock icon... damn! I don't!)

Strawberry laces are my absolute favourite at the moment, so damn addictive!

I love all the Evil Dead movies. Although, only the first one is really a horror film (And considering it was made in 1979, it was a pioneer of the genre...) ED2 is more like a remake by way of Tales from the Crypt, but probably the best of the bunch (because they had some semblance of a budget that time round, and the story is explained a little better - not much, but some) and my favorite is Army of Darkness, which is really comedy-with-a-skeleton-army-from-hell. But. Bruce Campbell.

I like the really BAD movies - stuff like Leprechaun 4: In Space, or Bride of Chucky. Wes Craven's New Nightmare is an interesting take on teh Elm Street stuff - it's set in the "real world" during filming of a new Nightmare film, but I enjoyed it. I love a lot of comedy-horror, so I loved Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight (mmmmm Billy Zane...) and I love From Dusk Till Dawn. The first Halloween movie is always worth a go, as is the Exorcist. Classics from the 40's are good - I have Bela Lugosi's Devil Bat in both DVD and VHS form. The original Night of the Living Dead is actually scary as fuck (the 80's remake is just... not as good, but definitely watchable. And it loses something in colour.)

Can you tell I have an *extensive* horror movie library? Sadly, I don't own any of the good ones, just the really cheesy bought-used-from-Blockbuster-for-two-bucks ones. But I have GLEE in them, so it's all good.

Awesome! I keep meaning to get all the Evil Dead films but forget by the time I get around to having the money to buy 'em!

I love bad movies, and cheesy movies, and so-awful-they're-good movies!

Thank you muchly!

I broke my RPS cherry in SPN fandom. Damn those boys for being so pretty! Now I'm freakin' addicted.

Wish I could help with the horror movie recs, but I only watch vampire & werewolves in the horror genre. Except *coff* I've seen Devour & House of Wax...can't imagine what coerced me into that ::whistles innocently::

I still get squicked a little with RPS... but they are just so... pretty!

Yeah... I can't imagine why I went out of my way to track down Devour and am willingly going to watch something with La Hilton in it...

The Vanishing (not the Kiefer one) is a terrific film. You must get Near Dark as well, best vamp flick ever. The Descent is also a good one that freaked me out, and if you want a really obscure one, try My Little Eye. Don't read ANYTHING about it before you see it, because it is better to be surprised.

As for House of Wax, I watched because of JP, wish I hadn't.
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: leffe//mmmm beer - monkey_mattwhiskyinmind on July 13th, 2007 03:07 pm (UTC)
Awesome! I'll definitely be looking out for those!

(I'm thinking that - a bit like Devour - there may be a need to numb the House of Wax experience with alcohol?)

I was really hoping you'd answer this!

(And as it happens I've got the Wicker Man (the original, of course, dodgy accents aside...) lined up for as soon as the pizza's ready!

There are quite a few you mention which I've been meaning to see but never quite gotten round to, so I'll definitely give them a look on your recommendation!
