This is weird, because I ALWAYS get asked this around Christmas time. People want to know which are the best Christmas horror movies to watch on the blessed day, that our lord and saviour, Jesus Christ, was born?
Personally, I’m not a fan of too many Christmas horror movies, because a lot of them…. most of them… at least 99% of them, were made simply to mark an occasion. There is a horror movie for pretty much any holiday you can imagine. And that makes most of them lame-ass attempts at cheap entertainment. For example: how many people feel it’s necessary to watch horror movies on Halloween? At least it’s some sort of weird obligation? And not too many of those stand the test of time!
First and foremost, I recommend Black Christmas (1974) which is one of my favourite movies of all time. That says a lot about me as a person. Not really. However, this movie is THE SHIT. It was really one of the first movies where college kids got picked off one by one, and it stands the test of time. The killer has no motive, and you never really see who it is, leaving you feel the chills long after the movie has finished.
Then I recommend Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) because it’s just plain stupid and of course, has therefore earned it’s place amongst cult horror films. It’s the: so stupid, it’s good sort of thing. A boy witnesses a man in a santa suit kill his family, which can only means he goes on a similar rampage later in life. Of course.
If anything, this variation of the poster is pretty damn promising. Sex, murder and gifts?!
And finally, as a very teeny nod to Black Christmas, À l’intérieur (Inside) (2007) is a film where some pretty horrible shit happens around Christmas time, rather than horrible shit happening because it’s Christmas time. And this is kind of like how I feel when I go shopping as of late. Everyone is a bit more stupid and therefore, dangerous. It’s frightening.
This one won’t particularly freak you out after you’ve seen the film, but I guarantee you’ll scream and close your eyes more than once.
And that’s me: spreading the true holiday cheer.

I took this photo at the Wolf’s Lair in April. Hauntingly beautiful place.
In a response to parafractal’s reblog regarding the everyday sexism tweets, I went searching for more. There is something so up in the air about targeting a penis in the comebacks, that we somehow shouldn’t be brought down to a man’s level of picking out our body parts.
Even that very argument is everyday sexism. As far as I’m concerned, the whole problem with (some) men are their dicks. They think with them, intimidate us with them, use them as some kind of symbol of power. A comeback centered around this is like cutting off the head of the snake, no pun intended. If they point out the very things that make us women: our boobs, our asses, our face, our bodies… then why can we not make fun of their dicks? They are the apparent sceptre of their “rule” over us. I mean, hell, even a lot of sceptre’s are shaped like dicks!
Then there are some that say we’re angry, and we as women, are wrong to be angry. Well, I think that if history has taught us anything, we are the “race” that has been segregated and subjected to attacks of many different kinds, since “Eve”. If anything, the only power we have is our anger which is fueled by desire to right the wrongs that are occurring each day. If that is by our sense of humour, then so be it.
John Lennon once said : “When it gets down to having to use violence, then you’re playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you, pull your beard, flick your face to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle in non-violence and humor.”

A fantastic little video.
If you’ve ever wanted to kill me, this is where I’ll be from precisely 8pm. I’ll be wearing black.
Thursday night movie. See if you can guess what it is…
We’re a happy family
I got my small dome from Witchery the other day. It cost me a measly $4.95 after a $20 gift card. By the way, what is up with them and their stingy rewards thing going on lately? Or maybe I just can’t stand their shitty clothes as of late.
Anyway, I had the perfect black skull candle hanging around, ready to make the small one its home. I was reading that black skull candles are used in voodoo or magick. Erm, I won’t be doing that.
I was here for my birthday this year.
I want to fall into that river.
