Kids, the best time of the year is finally upon us, huzzah! Horror movies available for cheap at the grocery store, skulls on sale at CVS, I have exchanged my summer gramma slippers for my winter gramma slippers, and I'm about to bust out the totally spooky red font, so pull up your pants, my friends: yeah SHOCKtober! Thursday marks the beginning of a month-long celebration here at Final Girl and also at every other site on the internet. But will those other sites have...movie reviews??
Probably most of them will. SIGH.
But here is the pitch, y'all: I'll be reviewing/talking about movies I've never seen before that are currently available on Netflix. It's true, I'm going to have to get over my fear of horrible, generic Photoshopped cover images, vague descriptions that don't tell you anything, and the worst rating system ever and indulge in some streaming horror. I'm looking forward to finally seeing some stuff that's been a-lingerin' in my queue forever, stuff I'm forever putting off. Everyone knows that movie-watching is a most enjoyable pastime when you force yourself to do it! Ha ha, just kidding. But really, my queue is a bloated, unsightly thing, and so often I will scroll by the horrible, generic Photoshopped covers and think "Not today...not today..." But during SHOCKtober I say YES TODAY. Or tomorrow, or at least by the end of the month.
I'll announce the movie I'm gonna talk about the day before I talk about it, so if you want to watch and feel like we're hanging out you can do so. If you have a site and you also write about the movie, you can pimp yourself until your hand falls off in the comments here! Look man, we're all gonna have a good time this month, okay. SHOCKtober rules!
DAY 1: STARRY EYES (2014)
I have no idea what it's about and I don't care! October 1st...be here or be squeeyer.
