The Horror Hangover

hangover1 (2)

It seems like it was just yesterday when you had the ability to walk straight, talk to people coherently and keep your bed free of urine. Boy how quickly things can change in the span of an evening, huh? It's okay, I understand and have been there myself. Well, maybe not the shitting in the pants part so much but pretty much everything else. Hey, at least you made it out of Saturday alive, and you shall be rewarded with yet another stupendous edition of, The Horror Hangover. Brought to you by Bayer.

Today actually marks a fantastic day in televised cinema with plenty of horrifying celluloid to keep the segment's namesake on point and true. We'll start by heading over to AMC for a double dose of classy horror beginning with The Silence of the Lambs tucking it away for a vaginal look at 10:30, only to be followed by Shelley Duvall looking her best in The Shining at 1:00.


If your not in the mood for rubbing lotion all over its skin (ya prude), 10:30 gives the gift of options in the form of the great comedic horror film, Shaun of the Dead on Comedy Central. And if THAT still doesn't float your smug little boat, just wait till 11:00 and you can watch Sleepy Hallow over at TNT. It's all about diversifying your options, people.

While we're on the subject of Tim Burton, it is he that leads us to our last bloody chunk of cinema for the day, and it comes to us courtesy of Horror Hangover BFF, SyFy. First up, SyFy gets in to the (just around the corner!) Halloween spirit with The Nightmare Before Christmas at 11:00. Keeping things on the upper level of horror cinema, SyFy takes a 12:30 trip down a level with the absolutely fabulous ladies of The Decent. Wow, talk about some great choices to have to make so early in your day, huh? Well, all good things must come to an end, and that end comes at 2:30 when SyFy goes back to a familiar mold with Carny. It's okay, though, Carny actually looks fun, plus it stars everyone's favorite triple named actor, LDP. Those initials are short for WIN.


  1. britney at her breast... i mean best. momma, most be so proud...she is jedi of FAIL...

  2. Greetings!
    I am giving this award to of my favorite blogs and places I believe need some well deserved attention. I thought it might be fun to shake it up a bit, sort of a "Pay It Forward" move... let me explain.

    01) Give the award to [10] who you like, but give a couple the "Next Blog" slider button on top... so random blogger people can feel the love from a stranger.

    02) Post those you gave the award to, so fans of your site can see the places you like and Paid It Forward too.

    *If we are not careful there will be "Zombie Rabbits" everywhere...


  3. Noticed AMC's lineup this morning and thought it fantastic!

    I have to say I'm one of the few people underwhelmed by The Descent.

  4. iZombie: Brittney has provided plenty of great photos in her crazy phase, which I am convinced is in remission for only so long!

    And thanks for the award...I shall proudly add it to the side bar!

    Ashlee: I really enjoyed it, but I was very surprised at how many horror fans had it at the top of their list for best horror films of the last decade. I could maybe put it in the top ten or fifteen, but number one? Thanks crazy talk. Maybe I need to see it again, though.

  5. I watched Shaun of the Dead on CC this morning. The I watched a film called Dread, which forced me back to the hair of the dog that but me.

  6. Wow...that picture of Shelley Duvall with the hairless cat is the funniest thing I've seen all week (wait, it's Monday, so the funniest thing I've seen the past seven days). Thank you!

  7. Geof: I take it that you watched the Clive Barker's Dread? I hadn't really heard much about it being good or not, but I do love the Books of Blood, so it's a bummer to hear it blew.

    Becky: Thank you! I made it all by myself...that's about the extent of my computer magic.
