More than a few critics included the thriller It Follows on their year’s best list…some saying it was one of the great scary films of all time.
Even with that ringing endorsement, I waited to watch the film until it was free on cable, and on early enough that I could shake off any creepiness long before bedtime.
Hey, I live alone.
I like the fact that it began in the middle – – no long exposition, so you are spooked from the start. There are plenty of reasons to jump and scream, but no gore which I personally appreciate. And the movie doesn’t tie everything up with a bow at the end, which increases the spook factor.
Is it the scariest movie I have ever seen? No. But it’s a good ‘un.

During the month of October, we see a lot of scary things on TV, in movies, on ads in every walk of life — all because Halloween is coming.
But with the exception of The Town that Dreaded Sundown, I don’t think I have seen anything as scary as the couch at this hotel.
Actually, the photo makes it look kinda vintage. It’s not.
It’s a HORROR.

I don’t remember ever posing with the Easter Bunny as a child, so I’ve never thought about how they might look.
Scary or cute?
Hold fast to your kiddies, parents.

I have a home office, and often keep the TV on for a little background noise in the apartment.
This afternoon I am working on the couch in front of the TV. The sound is down low, so it’s more of a pleasant hum than a distraction.
But then this image filled the screen during a commercial break —
Geez oh pete, HBO…don’t throw around the Black Swan willy-nilly.
That’s some seriously scary shit.

What does happiness look like?
McDonald’s says this:
He’s the new mascot for their Happy Meal.
New to the States, I should say. He’s been repping the kid’s menu in France since 2009, and Latin America and Europe since.
I think he looks a bit like the Kool-Aid mascot who crashed through walls when I was a youngun. But many online find the meal mascot a bit scary…and are creating memes to prove their point.
Yeah, I feel you.
