NANOWRIMO...And I'm in....

Happy Halloween...and a new Lars von Trier Film

Time to brush off those witches' hats and find the plastic fangs. I think I'm going to celebrate by watching some of my favorites horror movies-- Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist are ones I keep coming back to when I want a really good scare. The most frightening movies and books for me are ones that seem the most possible-- and both of these seem plausible to me. One of the reasons that Jack Ketchum impresses me so is that his monsters are real people-- they could live next door!

On the subject of horror movies, I cannot wait to see The Antichrist. Lars von Trier is a brilliant director. His film, Breaking the Waves, is breathtaking and one of my favorite films.
