Last night’s movie was the original Friday the 13th. Yesterday May the 9th marked the 37th anniversary of the movie being release! It’s always been a go to in my collection. I love older horror movies with Synths and pianos in it. Don’t get me wrong I love a good thought out soundtrack to a movie too, but nothing sets the atmosphere like a synth or piano.
**SPOILER ALERT** – Although Jason’s mom does most of the killing, I love the quick glimpse of Jason at the end.
I learned today that the remake of 1990’s Stephen King’s IT, some of it is being filmed in Port Hope, ON not too far from where I call home, I’ll be looking at the re-release to see if I can pick out any of the landmarks.

I’m pretty excited to see the trailer debut today for Rob Zombies “31” I had been waiting for this since I’ve seen his kick starter for the film. There were some pretty cool items on it too, I wish I could have donated they even had crosses from House of a 1000 corpses on there, would have been awesome to have that featured in my haunt. I had read that this film had been edited a few times to give it a “R” rating, it kept meeting NC-17 which is a level just below porn so not all theaters would show the film. Torn between wanting to see it in theater and because I love his films and want to support him. I’d also like to see the original directors uncut when that comes out. The way it should be seen. Either way I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

Tuesday is movie release day. Today Krampus comes out!
I saw this movie in the theater this past December for my birthday. Being a long time Krampus fan, it was cool to see it kind of come into the mainstream and get some attention. The movie was good (aside from the evil gingerbread men) and had a good twist at the end. I’ll be picking this up on Blue-ray for my collection.
If you’re unfamiliar with Krampus he is a half-goat half-demon who is in contrast with Santa Clause punishes children for misbehaving. I think we should bring Krampus back into the homes rather than the Elf on the shelf! I’m sure most parents can relate and have lost sleep when forgot to move it.
The movie had these really neat ornaments I’d love one for my tree. I do have a Krampus figure that sits in the tree but these are pretty cool!

I came across a movie called Home (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2545384/) this past weekend and thought to give it a go, the trailer looked promising and needed a new scary movie to watch. I had higher hopes for it since Heather Langenkamp was in it, she had played Nancy Thompson in the 80’s slasher A Nightmare on Elm street. This movie was slow there wasn’t many jump scares until the end. I can usually rate how good the jump scares are by how loud my girlfriend screams or jumps. I ended up giving up on the movie half way through and resumed it later on.
I’d give this movie 2.5 out of 5 stars
