The Perfect Halloween

Yesterday was the Perfect celebration of Halloween. With my best friends!

This is the jack o’ lantern I made yesterday. It shows, if you haven’t guessed it already, the mask of Michael Myers, the perfect horror movie monster ever (!). I’m quite pleased with the carving.

Fun fact: The mask used in John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978) was actually a Captain Kirk (William Shatner’s character in Star Trek) mask turned inside out.

Here’s a movie of all our jack o’ lanterns.

Our annual jack o lantern parade

This year we watched the following movies:

  • Halloween (1978, Dir: John Carpenter)
  • Halloween II (1981, Dir: Rick Rosenthal)
  • Trick ‘R Treat (2007, Dir: Michael Dougherty)

I LOVE Halloween!

Oslo Fright Fest 2012

** Edited 18.09.12: **
Oslo Fright Fest has been postponed. New dates will be announced later, within a month or two.

The second edition of Oslo Fright Fest will be held at Vika Kino this year. This means 3 movie theaters ram packed with horror, gore, sci-fi and madness. Yay! Can’t wait!

I’ve seen a couple of the movies they will be screening, like Army Of Darkness, Hora and Livide.

Livide is a beautiful yet quirky little movie, made by the directors of Inside (a really gruesome French home-invasion movie. If you haven’t seen Inside – shame on you!) Check out the trailer for Livide here, if you dare :mrgreen:

And check out the complete list of movies here. I’m really looking forward to Dredd, Excision, Inside The Whore and watching Livide on a big screen!

See ya there? :wink:

R.I.P. Tony Scott

Tony Scott died yesterday. He’s the director of some of my favourite movies – like The Hunger (1983) and True Romance (1993). He’s also the brother of Ridley Scott (director of Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator og Prometheus). Check out his full list on iMDb.

Thank you – and rest in peace!



The greatest car chase movie of all times!

Vanishing Point (1971, dir: by Richard C. Sarafian) is THE ultimate car chase movie, and it’s not really about cars. Barry Newman stars as Kowalski, who  works for a car delivery service and is to deliver a 1970 Dodge Challenger in San Fransisco, California. He takes a bet to deliver the car in San.Fran. in less than 15 hours (from Colorado) – and that’s where the fun begins.

I’m not going to spoil the fun if you haven’t seen it, so here’s the trailer and a couple of pictures from the movie. There’s a blind DJ/ghost voice, gay hitchikers, a naked woman riding a bike (epic!) and lots of excellent car chase scenes.

I’m your biggest fan!

I’m lucky to have a good friend that is so full of knowledge, references, history and trivia about almost every movie there is. I still haven’t been able to find a movie, an actor, a director or fill-in-the-blanks that he’s not aware of or has a strong opinion about.

Grufull – I just want to say thank you for sharing your endless pool of movie geekage. You have made my favourite hobby even better. And thank you for all the magical movie moments! <3

Here’s Grufull and me in a really internal movie joke (did you get it? :wink: )
