What are some of the best horror movies you’ve seen in recent memory?  I’m thinking of doing a Halloween marathon.

Today was a writing and research day.  Tomorrow will be the same, but will have the added bonus of a long overdue zoom chat with one of my very favorite writers, Carl Binder!  The last time I saw him was in the Dark Matter season 4 writers’ room.  He delivered a terrific time travel episode that I am gutted we never got the opportunity to bring you.

Today’s Yes/No…

I say Sure, why not?

From the Stargate vault…

Creepy, no?

  1. Thought you might appreciate this orange Kit Kat for Halloween. It taste fine. Chocolate is better. Hope the kids like it and don’t throw it back at me.


    I attached a picture. Not sure if it will work…

  2. Some of the horror movies that have disturbed my thoughts, kept me glancing over my shoulder, and my feet under the covers at night are:

    Paranormal Activity
    The Exorcism of Emily Rose (suppose to be a true story)
    The Conjuring (even though it falls apart in the end – for me)
    Silent Hill (so much running!)

  3. Not recent, but as a kid I was quite fond of the Disney light horror movie Don’t Look Under the Bed and watched it multiple times. It starred Erin Chambers, who played Sora of the Genii in Stargate Atlantis.

  4. I’ve been watching a bit of classic horror recently.

    Hellraiser (1987) & Hellraiser II (1988) – I’ve never seen any Hellraiser movie before so was curious to see what the fuss was about. Pretty standard gore-fest by today’s standards but I can see that it would have been shocking when originally released. I haven’t decided if I’ll continue with the franchise. I’ve heard it’s downhill from here.

    Friday the 13th (1980) – Also one that I’d never seen before. Considering the low budget and mostly improvised script I think this was pretty good. I kept waiting for the hockey masked Jason to appear and he never did! I didn’t realise that he doesn’t get the hockey mask until the third film!

    The Exorcist (1971) – Love this movie! Gives me goosebumps every time I watch it! I watch this at least once a year.

    Dracula (1931) – The original Bela Lugosi version. This was surprisingly good! I understand now why it’s considered a classic, must-see movie. Bela Lugosi was just plain creepy!

    The Changeling (1980) – This was a bit of a slow burn but I was engaged throughout. Some of it is a bit laughable now and it was quite predictable but I enjoyed it. I probably wouldn’t ever watch it again, though. But I do like George C. Scott in everything he’s in.

    Slither (2006) – This was fun and silly and not really scary. James Gunn’s directorial debut. Like George C. Scott, I’ll watch anything that’s got Nathan Fillion in it.

    Next up is Lake Mungo (2008) which is an Australian film with excellent reviews. It’s supposed to be a little slow but is supposed to be worth it.

  5. Creepy, yes, and beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

    I saw “Sublime”, starring Tom Cavanagh, the other night and it freaked me out. It is a horror/psychological mystery film about a medical mistake. I thought it was worth watching if you haven’t seen it already. It’s the kind of movie you only watch once. Just thinking about it gives me the creeps for a variety of reasons.
