Horror Movie Tag

I love a good horror movie! It’s my favourite movie genre and has been since I saw Gremlins in the early 90s; not that I found it that horrific. Gizmo is cute and the other Gremlins had me laughing out loud. Please tell me I’m not the only one? Since then my love of horror has grown and I have a growing collection of DVDs and some Blu Rays. The gem of my collection is my Hellraiser trilogy box set signed by Pinhead actor Doug Bradley. I met him at Collectormaina London along with Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) in 2011. […]

The Halloween Tag

Happy Halloween! Tonight I’m celebrating by doing the Halloween tag while donning some Ghostbusters pyjama bottoms and watching some Halloween themed films with my family (and likely some horror films too). I’m hoping we’ll see some trick or treaters as well. If you didn’t know by now Halloween is my favourite holiday, seconded by Christmas. When we were little my sister and I went trick or treating around our village with the other children there and a few chaperones. I think that’s where my love of Halloween and fancy dress began; my parents got very into it, carving pumpkins, decorating […]
