Classic Horror Pillow

Filexd under: Accessories,Decor,Etsy,Furniture,Home,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , — jane @

I’ve been in mourning for the last week because it always makes me sad when Halloween is over. I know it happens every year, but I do try to keep it alive throughout the year. In my house it’s Halloween year round. This pillow is a great way to keep all things scary alive in your house. I absolutely love old horror movies and this pillow captures a taste of the classics. Horror Slave on Etsy offers lots of other styles as well, so check them out. This pillow is for sale here.

Cabin In The Woods

Horror movies are just not that great anymore. This is my opinion, so don’t attack me for it. It seems like every time I go to see a horror movie I feel like I’ve seen it before. Every possible storyline has been done in every possible way. It’s sad because I just love a good horror movie. For some reason they all start out well and then end with a whimper. Last week Scary Hubby and I went to see the much anticipated Cabin in the Woods by Joss Whedon. Being lovers of all things Whedon we were expecting (hoping for) the best. What we got was something completely different. In short, it was amazing! Somehow Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard were able to turn the horror genre upside-down and take it in a direction it has never gone before. He did what many of us horror fans thought impossible and completely reinvented it. One problem though. Cabin in the Woods got the last word in on horror movies. There can be no sequel. He somehow was able to end every single horror movie storyline and leave no room for more. It will have to be a pretty brilliant script to truly revive/recreate this genre after this movie finishes it’s long run. Go see it! You won’t be disappointed.

Zombie Pops

Now you can give zombies a taste of their own medicine with these Zombie Pops. They are made out of white and milk chocolate with a custom mold made by Starlingskies on Etsy, so you will not find them anywhere else. Who knew zombies were made out of chocolate? I would not have been so scared of them last time they chased me into The Winchester Pub. Next time I’ll just turn around and take a bite out of their brains first. We’ll see who’s doing the running away then.

Big Baby

Happy 2012 people! Let’s make it a happy and healthy year!
So, I thought it was appropriate to post a baby related item since babies are a symbol of the New Year. I ended up coming across this creepy sculpture called Big Baby. Brooklyn, NY artist Nina Levy was originally commissioned to create Big Baby for the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, CT in 2003. The museum was doing renovations and thought the baby would symbolize the museum’s “rebirth”. It ended up causing quite a bit of controversy and was vandalized. Now it sits in the de Cordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA. The baby is 7′ tall and I find it to be more than just a little creepy. Could you imagine driving down the street and seeing that baby just sitting there on a bench? I would think the thing might have caused a few accidents while it sat in front of the museum. For some reason it made me think of that movie Trainspotting. Maybe just because that gravity defying baby creeped me out too.

American Horror Story

Filexd under: News/Articles,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

Part of enjoying this time of the year is seeing scary movies, TV etc. I thought I might address the newest scary TV show that premiered last week called American Horror Story. I have now seen both episodes and I must admit to not being sure whether I like it or not. It’s very scary and like I read somewhere recently it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen on a TV show before. The main thing that bothers me is the constant feeling of having seen everything before. The reason I feel that is because almost every major scene is copied from some famous scary movie or another. Interestingly, though, it appears to be very much on purpose which I find so strange. They cover every scary movie from The Shining to The Strangers and everything in between in the first 2 episodes. I find it somewhat irritating and enjoyable at the same time. I’m actually reminded of the show Lost. I know what you’re thinking, but hear me out. I watched every episode religiously from day one and when it came down to the last episode I was really pissed off. They spent the entire series feeding us cryptic information in every episode and in the end most of them remained unanswered. How is that like American Horror Story? There is so much stuff being thrown at the audience in every episode that I have this feeling that we will never get the answers to any of it. I find all the characters to be pretty unlikeable. I don’t think they’ve spent enough time on character development. It seems like they are spending all their energy on trying to shock you and no time on making you like the characters. As Scary Hubby pointed out though, it’s very well made and the acting is very good. It does do what it sets out to do. It definitely scares you. I just don’t know if that’s enough. If you have the hots for Dylan McDermott, then you’ll love the first episode. I lost count on how many times we saw his butt. I really like him, but that just got old after awhile. Why these people continue to stay in this house and even bought it in the first place is the big mystery. In the end, if you like to be scared, turned on and disturbed all at the same time then this show is for you. If you want a story you can dig yourself into then look elsewhere. Not sure if it will last and I can’t decide if I will continue to watch, but this is just my thirteen cents.

Scary Anti-Bacterial

Filexd under: Bed & Bath,kitchen,Misc. — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a bit of a germaphobe. Movies like Contagion and Outbreak are just way too scary horrible for me. Those are just too over the top. I know, crazy right? I’m Scary Jane. I can’t be scared of anything, but I am scared of germs. After all my name isn’t Horrible Jane, though I know some of you may call me that. Anyway, I use hand sanitizer constantly. I keep a bottle in every room of the house, store, car etc. I have never and I repeat never seen a bottle of hand sanitizer that wasn’t just a boring old clear bottle or covered in flowers. Now remember, I am saying that I, Scary Jane, have never seen them. You may have and that’s bloody great, but I am just saying I haven’t (That’s for all you losers that email me complaining about the way I word things, my grammar etc.). Actually I never had a thought to look for anything different. About a month ago I was sent the link to these Scary Hand Sanitizers. They are made by Bath & Body Works. Apparently they have been making Halloween ones for a while now and I have just never seen them (see earlier comment above). They carry quite a few different styles including various bath products and even carry some that are more kid friendly.

* Thanks to Rosie for the link.
