FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE, so beware yon spoilers!

This week on The Scare-ening...

...we've got some amazing guests lined up: Heidi Martinuzzi of Pretty/Scary and Stacie Ponder of Final Girl! They want you (yes, YOU) (but not YOU) to call in and ask them questions and tell them what to talk about. It is destined to be the most glamourous episode of anything in the history of ever, no?

The Scare-ening III: In 3-D will really help you hone your calling in and asking stuff skills in preparation for our guest for The Scare-ening IV, an episode in which you will have a chance to interact with a true horror brainiac, hero, and luminary.

Tune in tomorrow (that's "Wednesday" in weekspeak) at 8pm PST/11pm EST and get yer ask on!

So what are you ladies aiming to discuss...or is it a blank slate left to the fates of the callers? If so, I may have to warm up my dialing finger.

That sounds dirty.

Here's a topic: talk about the best downbeat endings in horror films.

I like the ones that just completely scorch the Earth, like


Night of the Living Dead, Drag Me To Hell, Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Even a lousy film can earn some good will via a grim and uncompromising ending. See, e.g., The Mist.

The ones I hate, though, are the films that tack on endings that just sort of hint that the evil hasn't been entirely vanquished, the endings employed by most of the Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th films, endings that have little to do with a point and more to do with setting up a sequel.

I have a funny feeling someone named "Billy from Canada" might be calling in this week.

"Bye, baby Bunting,
Daddy’s gone a-hunting,
Gone to get a rabbit skin
To wrap the baby Bunting in."

And don't bother tracing the call, Stacie - you guys don't wanna know where it's really coming from...

Good idea, Kensington!! I like it.

There's a chat room on the site as well, so that's another way people can ask questions or make suggestions while the show is happening. We might not catch them all, but it's a good tool.

Feel free to post suggestions here, too, or on The Scare-ening Facebook page! I'm going to go create a place to do that over there RIGHT NOW.

The Mist makes me uber-sad...and not in a "who ate the last oreo" kind of way.

I can't read what you write when you post such as an amazingly distracting picture.
