Happy Bday to Me.jpg

Hey Creeps-

Don't axe me. Please. 2016 is officially over, and it's been a busy couple of month's. I figured I'd kick off the new year on the blog discussing ( or listing is more like it) what horror related films I favored the most in 2016. Of course If I listed every single movie I watched this year I'd be here all night. Even now I'm writing this with a head cold, runny nose, and horrifying cough- so here goes...


#1- The Guest (2014)

#2- Green Room (2015)

#4-The Invitation (2015)

Now, before you start to make assumptions, please know that these aren't really in any particular order. Also, this just happened to be a top ten list. I don't know how it happened, it just happened. I enjoyed every minute of these films this year. Please comment below or tweet at @HopeEHarrell or @TheMacabrecast. What were some of your favorites? If you have seen these what did you think? Stay tuned for another blog post, I promise you all it won't be in a couple of months. I am currently putting together a list of movies I'd like to see this year. I will probably add to it on a monthly basis. 

I don't quite like the attitude most people take these days about seeing movies that have been out for forever. " Oh man you've never seen this!?" " Where the hell have you been?!" Listen, I joke in this way also- mainly with CLOSE friends and acquaintances. However, who the hell gives a shit? It's nice to even revisit movies from the past. Let people like what they like, discover, and rediscover. 

Will you join me in doing this in 2017? I hope everyone has a kick ass year!
