Halloween is almost upon us! Yes, only a few days away and luckily to get you in the mood – your local movie theater has a lot to offer in the way of HORROR this weekend. Looking for something truly frightening? Then why not go see………Boo! A Madea Halloween! Yeah, that’s not going to work. But something that might work is a blood-curdling ‘scare you shitless’ horror movie that’s coming out this weekend called……..Inferno! Oooooh…..scarrrrrrry. Wait a minute, isn’t that the Tom Hanks Da Vinci Code sequel movie? That’s not scary. But then why are they promoting it like it is? Last night while watching TV, a commercial came on for Inferno and right away it said this:
This Halloween…….Inferno is coming! (cue scary intense music and heavily edited video)
Really, guys? I get it. There’s nothing horror-related coming out this weekend for Halloween. But do we have to try and trick people into thinking that Inferno is a horror movie? Just accept the fact that Hollywood found it unnecessary to release a horror movie on Halloween weekend. In fact, Ouija: Origin Of Evil is the only horror movie really released in theaters this month at all. I read online that horror is a year-round phenomenon now, so there’s no need to release a horror movie for the sake of it being Halloween weekend. Get the fuck outta here is what I have to say to that.
The good news from all of this? There are plenty of new and old releases that you can watch via your Blu-ray player or Netflix to get your horror fix this weekend. But it’s times like this where I actually miss going to see the next Saw movie or even another Paranormal Activity sequel. Considering I haven’t seen Ouija: Origin Of Evil and have heard good things about it, I think I’ll be supporting my horror habit by going to check that out. Sorry, Tom Hanks…..if I want to get a Halloween fix from you – I’m just going to watch your Saturday Night Live sketch with your character David Pumpkins. Any questions???
