Everything I need to know about social distancing I learned from M. Night Shyamalan

Social distancing may not be everyone's personal favorite, but my entire life has led to this. Don't get me wrong. I am outgoing. I can be very loud. I even love hosting parties of somewhere between twelve to fourteen people. But I'm still very much an introvert. It just takes me thirteen thousand bajillion trillion times as long to decompress and recoup from things. However, I'm related by lots of blood to lots outgoing extroverts and have made them watch A LOT of movies with me. Mostly during one of my M. Night Shyamalan-a-thons. And I have learned SO MA[...]


Doctor Sleep: A Girl, Some Popcorn, and the Shining

Big Stephen King fan here, all us Midnighters are. When Doctor Sleep hit shelves in 2013, I was excited. A sequel to The Shining? One of my very favorite books? The answer to what happened to Danny Torrance? Yes please. I loved the book, but I'm not here to talk about that. Yesterday, I bought a ticket and a lot of popcorn, and took myself to see the movie based on Doctor Sleep. I'm not here to compare the movie to the book, because I read it a long time ago and comparing the two causes frustration. The movie should have its own space, be its own entity. Alt[...]


Midnight Society Movie Night: We Have Always Lived in the Castle

It's October and time to announce the choice for Midnight Society Movie Night! Once again, I flipped to Netflix and found a film I haven't seen. Let's watch We Have Always Lived in the Castle.       We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a 2018 mystery thriller directed by Stacie Passon and written by Mark Kruger and based on the novel by Shirley Jackson. But you live-tweet horror movies...this does not say horror... Yeah, well. Horror is lots of things, and people keep talking about this movie, which makes me want to watch it. Since, I've[...]


Midnight Society Movie Night: The Forest

This month for our Midnight Society Movie Night, I will live-tweet The Forest. Directed by Jason Zada, written by Ben Ketai, Nick Antosca, and Sarah Cornwell, The Forest, an American supernatural horror film, took the screen in 2016. I didn't see this in the theater, slightly worried I wouldn't like it. Not received well, people didn't have good things to say about the movie. Though when it appeared on DVD, I bought it. Not a favorite movie of some and maybe not my very favorite ever, I enjoyed it. Not incredibly scary, I liked the creepiness, the tone, and t[...]


Let’s Watch a #Horror Movie…The Cabin in the Woods

That's right! My choice of movie to live-tweet this month is one of Amy's (one of our Midnighters) favorites!   I watched The Cabin in the Woods because Amy told me to. Basically. And why wouldn't I want to? This 2012 horror/comedy was written by Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon, directed by Drew Goddard and produced by Joss Whedon. Dude. This movie made me laugh, cringe, and sent my horror-loving heart all aflutter. SO LET'S WATCH IT TOGETHER! We'll follow five college friends... As they go on a little vacation to a deserted cabin deep in the woods. It[...]


Let’s Watch a Horror Movie… My Bloody Valentine

It's February the month of hearts and candy and love... or we could watch a horror movie. If you're like me, when it comes to scary, the list of people willing to share the experience is slim, or none. So I am bringing us together on Twitter for a live-tweet each month. In honor of Valentine's Day, I have chosen the slasher film My Bloody Valentine from 1981. I have not seen this! And, even though I got the DVD in the mail, I will resist watching until the live-tweet. *pets DVD case* I will resist! So if you want to see some in the moment Kathy reactions to th[...]
