Continuing our little horror themed series for October, today we’re talking about Folk or Urban Legend movies!

#1 Urban Legend

Probably the most obvious pick but it’s kind of an iconic one. The list wouldn’t be complete this week without Urban Legend!

#2 Trick R Treat

I thouroughly enjoyed the concept of this one. It includes quite a lot of themes that fit the topic perfectly. A rewatch is due very soon!

It’s finally October and you all know what this means! It’s almost Halloween and I couldn’t be more excited. To match the vibe this month’s TMP posts will be horror themed as well, kicking things off with some horror flicks featuring schools.

#1 The Faculty

This was the very first thing that came to my mind when I read the theme. I’ve only ever seen The Faculty once but for some reason it really burned itself into my brain. Also, so many famous faces in this one!

#2 Final Destination

Okay, so this is a bit of a cheat. Final Destination is technically not set in a school. But – hear me out – it’s about a class on their way to France when one of the kids has a premonition that the school trip would go horribly wrong. This was another one that immediately popped into my head, so I’m including it. 😉

I almost picked the same shows I already told you about last year for this week’s topic but I ended up coming up with some new non-English TV shows!

#1 Money Heist

I’m halfway through this Spanish show and it’s just such an interesting idea!

#2 Ragnarok

Okay, so I haven’t seen Ragnarok yet, but I only heard positive things about it!

Today we’re gonna cover some super badass femmes fatales!

#1 Kill Bill

The ultimate badass bitch in my opinion is the Bride from Kill Bill. Was there ever anybody more fatal?

#2 Gone Girl

While I didn’t particularly love neither the book nor the movie, Gone Girl is a perfect match for this topic. Definite femme fatale!

Today we’re talking about some flicks featuring outlaws!

#1 Ned Kelly

The first thing I thought of when I read today’s topic was this film with Heath Ledger. It’s been at least 15 years since I saw this film and literally the only thing I can remember about it is my darling Heath.

#2 Cat Ballou

A classic. Jane Fonda is just brilliant as Cat Ballou – I need to rewatch it soon!

Surely also pretty iconic and just as hilarious is David Hasselhoff in the Spongebob movies.
