I was thinking of celebrating the last week before Halloween by watching a scary movie before bed each night. Hulu has a film version of Clive Barker’s Books of Blood (how? Is it an anthology thing? Is it based on a single story? Books of Blood is a short story series (six books if you live in the UK, three if you live in the US) that I’ve wanted to see. Speaking of Mr Barker, I still haven’t seen the director’s cut of Nightbreed. I have heard good things. I think there’s a film version of Midnight Meat Train too… is that from Books of Blood? I can’t remember. What about Dread? I think they made that into a movie too. That one is definitely from Books of Blood (volume 2, if memory serves) and it scared the living shit out of me.
I have one more episode of Haunting of Bly Manor and that show is so freakin’ good. I’m also mid-way through Lovecraft Country. I could use both of those shows as my scary movie-fest each night.
Having said all of that, Jen and I are blitzing our way through Schitt$ Creek and only have a few episodes left. We’ll watch some of those tonight and then I’ll go to sleep because I got little to no sleep last night… so spooky fest is dead before it starts.
Sorry, horror fans. I’m old.
