Happy Halloween from the Griffins!



It was another great horrorthon this year (until I read how much Octo hated Insidious), and I look forward to next year's!  Now, on to my Christmas movie blog!  (not really) (Wow, that'd be rough.  Do you think there's another group of people like us that try to watch as many Xmas movies as possible during December?  And if so, have they reviewed Black Xmas?)

Love the pic, Trevor! And your comment about Octo's feelings on Insidious made me laugh.

Oh - and I'm totally in for Christmasthon...

Awesome costumes, Trevor!

A few years back we weighed a Christmasthon/holiday contest but we concluded that people would be too burned out by Horrorthon.

Great picture Trevor, I'd be in for Holidaython too unfortunately I think it lacks the wealth of material the horror genre provides. Unless you count the endless swill of Lifetime flicks that run every year.

Awesome picture. What's embarrassing is that I originally thought "Oh, Trevor's last name is Griffin" and almost asked what your and Mrs. Trevor's costumes were, because the kid was obviously Curious George.

I know CG is usually naked, but we have a stuffed animal that I now realize is dressed like Stewie.

I've been thinking about a monthly movie review "contest" we could do, where we pick a genre and give ourselves a whole month to watch just one example of that genre, then review it. Then someone "wins" and is chosen to pick the following month's genre. We could start with Xmas!

(Or instead of contests and winning, we just determine the order randomly at the beginning. So DCD will have February and she'll have until then to choose a genre.)

I'm also once again courting the idea of a one-man Godzillathon with an indeterminate schedule.

I like the idea of the monthly movie contest. Keeps us up on our reviewing game throughout the year but not so much to cause burnout.

Thanks for sharing the great picture, Trevor!

I am in for any kind of thon activity. A low pressure version (as Octopunk proposes) would circumvent both the burnout and the fewer-movies-in-other-genres objections. I've already got my Christmas movie picked out in case we go forward.

Great family costume, Trevor!

Love the idea of monthly themed mini-thons. But let's not jump the gun on Christmas just yet! There's got to be a least a few Thanksgiving movies, no?

Planes, Trains for sure...
April "something" with Katie Holmes
what else...

Catfreeek said...

Thankskilling! And Thankskilling 2!

:) What a cute picture!

Octopunk said...

I'm afraid my personal view on that is... fuck Thanksgiving! I have Horrorthon reviews to write!

The lifetime movies and kids' movies are where Xmasthon would get really crazy. The kids movies would be fun - the lifetime movies might make me hate xmas. Not to mention all the fundamentalist films.

I'm kind of looking forward to watching all the kiddie Horror movies in a few more years and really padding my horrorthon score.
