Hey, guys! Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks. It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme. We’re still all about the horror topics for October, so let’s talk about some horror comedy flicks!
#1 Evil Dead II/Army of Darkness
You have no idea how much I love this movie series. The first Evil Dead movie is mostly just horror not comedy but part 2 and 3 are amazing. You’ll be laughing so hard! Can we just take a moment to appreciate Bruce Campbell?
#2 Braindead aka Dead Alive
Did you ever wonder what Peter Jackson was doing before LOTR? This movie is something else. I swear, more people need to know it and love it!
Little Shop of Horrors is a special kind of film. The original version was shot in 1960, 22 years a musical was produced and in 1986 the musical was turned into a movie. As this is a very interesting take on one and the same story, I decided to look into the old and the new movie for today’s post!
1960 – Directed by Roger Corman
1986 – Directed by Frank Oz
A rather clumsy young man finds a plant. But not an ordinary one as it soon turns out. Audrey (named after his love interest) lives on blood and gets hungrier each day. Fortunately, there is quite a lot of scum in the neighbourhood to make sure Audrey is well fed and growing strong…
I’ve always loved horror movies, especially the once with a funny touch. I don’t know why it took me so long to write this post! Anyway, here’s my favourite horror comedies!
Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice is the most famous or at least well-known movie in this list. Although it’s not as dark and gore-y as the other films, I still love the atmosphere Burton creates here. It’s about a recently deceased couple who (as ghosts) are trapped inside their house and have to deal with the new owners.
Beetlejuice is quirky, funny and Winona Ryder is adorable in her role!
