Horrifying: Mission statement

July 23, 2008 at 3:03 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

I’m writing this blog because I thought it would be a good way to get myself to write every day instead of saying “I’m going to write today!” and then falling asleep with a glass of gin in hand watching a scary movie.

So, I decided to combine my love for horror films, gin and all things goose-bumpy with something that will keep my 20-something attention span focused on a single project. And hopefully, it will attract other people who love zombies, witches, vampires, wolf-men and she-wolves (In a completely non-creepy, non-furry, non-black-vinyl-cape-from-Hot-Topic way) and maybe it will save my boyfriend from having to hear me lecture on why films like The Amityville Horror and Burnt Offerings focus on the anxieties of young, recently married couples with children coping with managing a household on their own for the first time, yet again.

That plot sounds familiar to me, if you replace marriage with cohabitation and the kids with two obese felines and the creepy old mansion with a creepy suburban apartment where the cabinets fall off their hinges regularly and the carpet smells like mold. I’m moving in a few weeks, did I mention that?

Anyway, thanks for being here and here’s hoping this thing lasts beyond two blog posts.
