Horror Blogger Meme


Pax Romano from Billy Loves Stu has created this meme, which has been all around the horror-themed blogs. I copied it from All Things Horror. Here are my answers:

1: In Ten Words or Less, Describe Your Blog

What I read, write, watch, listen to or do.

2: During What Cinematic Era Where you Born?
    A: The Classic Horror Era (late 30's to 40's)
    B: The Atomic Monster/Nuclear Angst Era (the late 40's through 50's)
    C: The Psycho Era (Early 60's)
    D: The Rosemary's Baby Era (Mid to Late 60's)
    E: The Exorcism Era (Early to mid 70's)
    F: The Halloween Era (Late 70's to Early 80's)
    G: The Slasher Era (Mid to late 80's)
    H: The Self Referential/Post Modern Era (1990 to 1999)

E... and I watched some stuff that warped my wee brain at an early age.

3: The Carrie Compatibility Question:

Er... no one?

4: You have been given an ungodly amount of money and total control of a major motion picture studio - what would your dream Horror project be?

Giving horror filmakers a place to make things without tons of interference. And also try and get a reunion movie made for my all time favorite show, Friday the 13th: The Series.

5: What horror film "franchise" that others have embraced, left you cold?

Saw alternately intrigues me and pushes me away. But another is Zombie flicks. I love Night of the Living Dead, but my love for that genre drops the further away it gets from that movie. That said, I have Zombieland set to record tomorrow on DVR. Always hopeful!

6:  Is Michael Bay the Antichrist?

Not a fan of Transformers or his other stuff, but I have to admit I was okay with his Texas Chainsaw Massacre redo, as I was with the Friday the 13th remake. Haven't seen the Nightmare on Elm Street redo yet.

7: Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Frankenstein Monster - which one of these classic villains scares you, and why?

Dracula. Frankenstein is just like a big, confused child and the Wolfman is tormented and trapped, but pretty much a wild animal. Drac knows who and what he is, and wants to keep on doing the evil he does.

8: Tell me about a scene from a NON HORROR Film that scares the crap out of you:

The flying monkeys tearing the beejeesus out of the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz.

9: Baby Jane Hudson invites you over to her house for lunch.  What do you bring?

First I would leave a note somewhere so people know where I am. And I would bring a weapon, something easily concealed.

10: So, between you and me, do you have any ulterior motives for blogging?  Come, on you 
can tell me, it will be our little secret, and I won't tell a soul.

To share what I like and hopefully find people who like it as well. Nothing "secret" about it.

11: What would you have brought to Rosemary Woodhouse's baby shower?


12: Godzilla vs. The Cloverfield Monster, who wins?

Godzilla, and then he would make sure to be caught on camera, so he could brag.

13: If you found out that Rob Zombie was reading your blog, what would you post in hopes that he read it?

A plea for him to go back to music and leave movies alone?

14: What is your favorite NON HORROR FILM, and why?

Depends, I guess, on my mood. Love Rear Window. Love Overboard. Guess I will go with The Princess Bride as my favorite Non-Horror Film.

15: If blogging technology did not exist, what would you be doing?

Guess just watching movies and reading books.


  1. A reunion movie??? C'mon, give us some original Caffeinated Joe horror, at least! :P

  2. Love that Universal monsters pic at the top! As for Zombieland, it's more a comedy than a zombie horror film. It's not terrible but it's an even further step from the original NotLD.

  3. Great meme, i'll have to do it for Macabre!

    Great answers.

  4. I so want you to get the money for a movie...cause I would LOVE to see a Friday the 13th The Series movie. That would be the best thing ever :)

    Thanks for sharing.


  5. Great answers, thanks for playing!

  6. Not funny Mr JOe....
