Welcome to the Salty Spitoon, how tough are ya?
How tough am I? I watched The Woman in Black a few years ago, and I slept a whole 3 hours afterwards. What do you mean I’m not tough enough? You think I belong at Weenie Hut Jrs?
If you have no idea what any of that means, you really need to watch the No Weenies Allowed episode of Spongebob Squarepants, it’s the best. It also sums up mine and Jenna’s feelings about Horror movies. As film fanatics we like to say that we’ll give any movie a chance, but that doesn’t ever seem to extend to Horrors. We’re just too scared. Every October we say this year will be different, and in my own defence I got through a few Horror-Comedies last year, but still, we want to be brave.
That’s why, throughout October, we’ll be manning up and watching a few scary movies that have been niggling our curiosity just a little too much. Knowing us, we won’t be able to form actual coherent reviews of these, so we’ll be labelling those posts with ‘Halloweenie’.
Here’s the fun part - we’d love for you to join us! Whether you belong in Weenie Hut Jrs like we do or if you have a lifelong membership to the Salty Spitoon, there’s got to be a Horror out there that you’re nervous about. If you’d like to join us, either send us your Halloweenie review by email and we'll publish it here (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post it on your own blog and tell us about it! At the end of the month we'll publish a list of all Halloweenie posts.
