October Photo Challenge Day 9: HORROR FILM

What’s better than going to see a HORROR FILM? Going to see a horror film at a vintage single-screen movie theatre with an actual organ. Later this month my neighborhood movie house the Prytania Theatre, which is 103 years old, is showing two cult classics . . . at midnight, no less: the original 1978 Halloween, the story of Michael Myers who murders his sister on Halloween night in 1963 and then 15 years later escapes from a mental hospital and returns to his hometown to kill again (eeks!) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show will include a live shadow cast and the option to buy a prop kit with your ticket, just incase you’ve misplaced all your props from when you used to see Brad and Janet and Dr. Frank-N-Furter and Rocky every weekend 40-or-so years ago. From what I understand, dogs aren’t allowed at the Prytania. That’s fine with me. Midnight is waaaaay past my bedtime.

Do you have a favorite horror film or a favorite place to go the movies?

    How fun to go to that theater at midnight for these scary movies! The horror film that scared me the most – even made the hair stand up on the back of my neck – is The Exorcist.

    We are not fans of scary, so we won’t go, but perfect for your photo.

    • All of this made my human mommy think back to the last time she saw a horror movie. She thinks it was either the original “Halloween” or the original “Friday the 13th.” So I guess that also makes her not a big fan of scary!

    We don’t usually do scary but we did go see IT. The original was much better.

  4. While I’ve never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show (I know, I lead a sheltered life), it
    s a cult classic here too and always seems to have tons of peeps enjoying it. With an old time organ…priceless.

    • My human mommy had the Rocky Horror soundtrack on eight-track when she was in high school (yep, she’s ancient). She played it so much, it’s a miracle it didn’t disintegrate. But she never actually saw the movie until she went to college. She’s pretty sheltered, too. 😉

    My humom is way too scared to watch horror movies. She says she will get nightmares. So I guess I’ll never know what a scary movie looks like!
