Let’s Watch Horror Movies…Christmas Edition

I love horror movies! I love to live-tweet them too! Once a month, precious, I tweet all my thoughts and feelings as I watch a scary movie. I didn’t know how much fun it would be. To be able to watch it with others makes it more fun. Through Twitter, we can connect over our love of the creepy. Last month my horror friend Andrea and I had a BLAST live-tweeting the movie Lights Out. Neither one of us had seen it, so it was a lot of great first reactions. I haven’t been so scared watching a movie in a loooooong time. I held my breath through most of it, but you better believe I never looked away.  Never! Afterwards, I might have turned on all the lights and ran up the stairs, holding in a scream. IT WAS AWESOME!

I know you want to join me in the Twitter-sphere, to watch a scary movie with a friend, ME. I hope to see you at my next live tweet. Which leads me to my monthly announcement…

Since it’s December, the month of Christmas. Though I do watch A LOT of Hallmark movies this time of year, there must be space for all things weird and creepy. I went back and forth between two of my favorites before I decided to do both! It’s my show. I make the rules.

How can it be Christmas without this Warner Bros 1984 classic comedy horror directed by Joe Dante, written by Chris Columbus, and produced by Steven Spielberg? IT CAN’T! A strange present of a furry little critter…lights, decorations, singing carols, a community coming together for the season, with a few killer monsters, eating gingerbread and jumping out of Christmas trees, thrown in for fun. Screaming, laughing…it all goes together with Gremlins.

So, get your DVD (or whatever media you choose) ready for Friday, December 16th. Press play at 9 EST and add your tweets to #Gremlins!

And for my second choice…

Last year I went to see my next pick in the theaters and left with a big ole smile on my face.

Krampus, written by Todd Casey, Michael Dougherty, and Zach Shields, produced by Michael Dougherty, this 2015 comedy horror movie tells the story of the evil side of the Christmas spirit. Are you ready for evil gingerbread men, some killer Christmas presents, creepy snowmen and elves, and to see what happens when you lose the Christmas spirit? I am!

Friday, December 23rd, press play at 9 EST and tweet along at #Krampus.

Let’s watch horror movies…together.

    I have still never seen Gremlins. I even bought it.
