Slasher Movie Marathon!

OK, so most everyone knows how long my husband & I have been together, but during our drive to the beach last weekend I mentioned something that he just didn't want to believe. As we were having a TON of different conversations in our 2.5 hour drive the topic of scary movies came up. (Don't ask me how!) We were talking about 'A Nightmare on Elm Street', 'Friday the 13th', & 'Halloween' specifically. After about 2 minutes it was realized (by me) that I have NEVER seen all of these movies! *GASP* I couldn't believe that I had never seen any of the classics all the way through - NONE of them! Now, I DO know the characters: Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Michael Myers, but that's the extent of it!

So, what does that all mean?! Well, a "Slasher Movie" Marathon of course!

Knowing that I had the entire following week from our beach trip OFF from work, I knew I had the time.  Yay! We have Blockbuster Online so we immediately went to our queue to start ordering the movies. After being a little impatient, we just decided to go to the local Blockbuster and rent every Freddy movie they had! We came home with 'A Nightmare on Elm Street 1-4', plus the newest 'Halloween II' by Rob Zombie, just for the heck of it! We'd already seen the first of the Rob Zombie 'Halloween' remakes.

Here's the scene...

Because it was SO bright outside, and knowing that you just can't watch scary movies in bright lighting, we drew the curtains CLOSED! We sat on our butts and watched, and watched, and watched some more... after the next few days we had ended up seeing the first 4 of the 'Nightmare on Elm Street' movies, the first 5 of the 'Friday the 13th' movies, and the first 2 (Original) 'Halloween' movies! Talk about MOVIES!!!!!

At least NOW I can say I've seen them! I feel like I was missing out! And, we still have more to go! Who knew there were SOOOOO many?! We'll get there eventually!

And yes, we are HUGE movie buffs. You could say it's our most favorite thing to do together.
