This feels like it’s based on an obscure graphic novel, like something that’s actively trying to subvert certain tropes of superhero comics. It’s not, which probably means that these are now a genre onto themselves.
Rob and Holly are in the early stages of their relationship. There is a problem though. When they try to have sex, Nina, Rob’s dead girlfriend keeps visiting them.
My last installment was a nice little horror comedy musical about zombies. In order to show the breadth of the genre, I decided to go as far as possible from it. So, I thought this weird little Hungarian body horror film about there generations of men trying to find their place in the world.
I wasn’t sure I wanted to include this one, as it’s not much of a horror movie, because the musical numbers take the edge off the horror scenes. Still, it is Christmas time (well, it was when I started writing this) and this is a Christmas movie, so why not?
This is only tangentially a Christmas movie, as it does happen at Christmas time, but the themes of the movie are not Christmas related. It does lend itself to explaining certain things about the environment, namely all the decorations used in the film.
I was going to do various Chrismas horror comedies first, but then this sort of fell into my lap.
Behind the Mask – The Rise of Leslie Vernon is a 2006 mockumentary, not to be confused with the actual documentary about animal rights activists called Behind the Mask released in the same year.
If you have an interest in movies in general, you should see this movie. Sure, it’s easy to see as pop culture trash, but it’s also masterful in it’s execution. Just the sound alone is an excellent example of how you really need to take that part of the movie into account, as so much of the mood is just purely built on that.
Now, I am not a big fan of Christmas. In fact, I do try to avoid family gatherings in general, but the importance put on Christmas just feels so awkward and unnecessary.
I’ve been mulling this over for the last two days and during that time I’ve felt the need to explain what I’m going for in some more detail.
I’ve been wanting to write a book for a very long time. I do have some drafts ready, but I never seem to find the motivation to do the necessary editing and rewrites to finish them. I like writing, but everything else is boring.
While I’ve been planning on writing fiction and books on games, for a few years now I’ve been thinking about writing a book on movies. The problem is that I lack the academic background to write the kind of book I would like to write. So, I decided to instead use this existing blog to write a series on a specific topic instead: horror comedies.
Short answer: No.
Little bit longer: No in general, but it’s complicated.
But I guess you are going to want some explanation.
