some things

Thanks to everyone who sent in their Top 20 favorite horror movies for the upcoming SHOCKtober celebrations. I'll begin counting them down on October 1 with new chunks o' lists appearing every day throughout the month. I don't really want to spoil the results, but I have to say that I'm super surprised The Bye Bye Man placed first by a wide wide margin, man. Guess it's a already a bonafide genre classic!

I recently spoke with the fine folks over at Achievement Oriented about Night Trap and scary video games and more, and I think it was good? You'll have to listen and tell me. I always go into a kind of fugue state when participating in these types of things, like I talk and my soul leaves my body and I keep talking and my soul looks down and is like "GIRL STOP YOU'RE LOSING THE PLOT" but I just keep going and then when it's all over I have no idea what went on or where my pants ended up. HASHTAG BLESSED.

And if that's not enough vidya games for ya, I also ranked Resident Evil games by their number of platform appearances over at Kotaku. It's kind of a post for Resident Evil nerds, aka it is a post for me.

Finally SHOCKtober is almost upon us! It's gonna be a good month, I think. Daily listing here at the ol' FG, some more surprises in store at the ol' FG, and some good content planned over at the ol' Kotaku that'll tie horror movies and horror games together. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

'Fear water' will now become a permanent part of my vocabulary.

You should hook up a regular podcast gig, Stacie. I still remember how much fun The Scare-ening was.

I didn't get my list in on time. I suck! I'm still looking forward to the Shocktober countdown, though (I assume you're just trolling us about The Bye Bye Man, right?).

Am I trolling with THE BYE BYE MAN? I guess we'll see when we hit #1 on October 31st!!
