Meme questionnaire!

This started life on the Billy Loves Stu blog and has been doing the rounds, so I thought I'd leap right onto the bandwagon and give it a go...

1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog:

Stuff thought up when I should be doing something productive

2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?
A: The Classic Horror Era (late 30's to 40's)
B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's)
C: The Psycho Era ( Early 60's)
D: The Rosemary's Baby Era (Mid to Late 60's)
E: The Exorcism Era (Early to mid 70's)
F: The Halloween Era (Late 70's to Early 80's)
G: The Slasher Era (Mid to late 80's)
H: The Self Referential/Post Modern Era (1990 to 1999)

F: The Halloween Era

3: The Carrie Compatibility Question:
(gay men and straight women - make your choice from section A)
A: Billy Nolan or Tommy Ross, who would you take to the prom?
(straight guys and lesbians - make your choice from section B)
B: Sue Snell or Chris Hargensen, who would you take to the prom?

It's been a while since I've seen Carrie, so I'm afraid I had to look up said characters on IMDb... totally forgot that John Travolta was in it! That rules out Billy Nolan then, so it would have to be Tommy Ross.

4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money, and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?

A grand, sweeping mega-epic trilogy of films based on Lovecraft's stories "The Call of Cthulhu", "The Dunwich Horror" and "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" With soundtrack by Death in Vegas. 

5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?

I like at least one film from all the major horror franchises, especially the first Saw (Saw II was tripe, and I stopped bothering with them after that.) Do the Hostel films count as a franchise? Hated them.

6: Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?

When the Antichrist pops up in fiction, he tends to show that he has an imagination, something Michael Bay does not possess. Michael Bay is just a massive git.

7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?

Dracula; he's definitely the most manipulative and sinister of the three.

8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:

The whole of ET: The Extra-Terrestrial... a mind-curdlingly terrifying film. If I'd been in Elliott's place I would've preferred the queen from Aliens to drop by for a visit than that...thing (shudder)

9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch. What do you bring?

A copy of The Dark Knight on DVD because I reckon she'd like the Joker's make-up.

10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging? Come, on you can tell me, it will be our little secret, I won't tell a soul.

Don't think so... no world domination plans or anything like that... I do sometimes watch EastEnders whilst posting, that count as a blogging secret?

11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?

A good divorce lawyer.

12: Godzilla vs The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?

Neither - the thing from Watchmen would kick both of their arses.

13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?

Probably just some good music videos?

14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?

Goodfellas. Everything about it is great - acting, pace, story, soundtrack, technique. I could bang on about it for ages, it's just ace.

15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing? Blathering on about horror to people down the pub, I expect.


  1. Awesome! Love answers 6 and 11. Fantastic!!

  2. I have to agree, and had the same answer for mine, that a Lovecraft adaptation would be paramount if I had the money and power...
