(Inspiring and creative title, I know)
I'm gonna try something new here and I know I get a somewhat decent viewership every day, so I want to see some participation! No excuses!
Every week, I will ask an opinion based horror related question, which I will then answer and then turn the floor over to you guys to answer. All you've gotta do is leave a comment with your personal answer to the question, which can be as short and sweet or as long and in depth as you're feeling up to. Easy enough, right? Lets get to it!
This weeks question is :
If you were only allowed to watch one horror movie, of your choosing, for the rest of your life, what movie would you choose?
I will kick the discussion off with my personal answer ......
You'd think that the above question is merely a glorified way of simply asking "What's the best horror movie ever made?" but that's not really the way I see it. If you were to ask me that question, Cabin Fever would likely not be the first answer to come to mind and would probably not come to mind at all. This is a different kind of question. Ya see, Cabin Fever is not so much my pick for best horror movie as it is my choice for my favorite horror movie to watch. What I mean by that is that pretty much any time I want to watch a movie, Cabin Fever is the first thing to come to my mind. It's the one I reach for on my shelf whenever I want to watch something that i'm guaranteed to enjoy and thus, if it were the only horror flick I was able to watch for the rest of my days, I think i'd be about as okay with that horrific situation as humanly possible. It's fun, it's funny, it's gory, it's got pancake kid and "The Road Leads To Nowhere", and it provides just about everything one could ever ask for in a horror movie.
I know a lot of people seem to be on the Eli Roth hating bandwagon, which I will never understand, so I fully expect to get shit on for this choice. Bring it on because i'm willing to defend Mr. Roth to the death! As far as im concerned, he hasn't made a less than kickass horror flick to date and i'm not sure what there is to possibly hate or dislike about that, but everyone loves to bash those who are successful I suppose. (I will however agree that he is quite the basterd.) All I want to know is what kind of horror fan could not derive some level of enjoyment and entertainment out of a film like Cabin Fever? What's not to love or at least like?!
Let's get some discussion going on here! Leave a comment with the one horror movie you just can't live without! And if you're feeling up to it, tell me why you picked the movie you picked!
