If it bleeds, we can kill it.

A friend and coworker posted this quote on Facebook. And I was immediately curious over whether or not the current political climate had pushed him over the edge. What I didn’t know was that this is a famous line from the 1987 movie, Predator.

He quickly set me straight.
I will be bombarding him with quotes from the movie as I watch–be warned they might also find their way to Twitter and Facebook, too:)

For those of you who have never seen Predator, I’ve posted the trailer below. I haven’t seen this movie since it came out. This isn’t your typical horror film. In fact, it’s considered science fiction horror. This was a huge genre that ran from the 1980s to the 1990s. Big films, like The Thing, Alien, The Blob, Hellraiser, and The Fly may emphasize the science fiction aspect of the plot–but HOLY HELL are they scary. Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself.

    One of the best action movies ever made. This movie is a masterclass in pacing. It’s a great resource for writers. The pacing is absolutely perfect.
