Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, and reflect on some of the most notable moments from the last decade:
Meeting Kevin Smith:
You can read the entire thing here, but without a doubt, Kevin Smith is one of the most significant things to happen to me in my entire life.
From Halloween Horror Nights:
“Okay, mouthbreathers, get ready! Netflix’s Stranger Things is returning to Universal Orlando Resort’s Halloween Horror Nights.
We’re heading into a new year, and with it, I’m steadily working on plans to make it a great year for Wandering NerdGirl. This is a rough idea of how I aim to approach next year, and there is always room to add or remove things.
This year, we had something a little different in the area – HallowCon Missouri. I was pretty surprised to see someone putting together a horror con fairly close to home. So, of course, I was up for checking it out.
We all have local urban legends: haunted cemeteries, unsolved murders, roads with mysterious, ghostly hitchhikers. One of the more prominent ones we have around here in small town Missouri is the legend of the Elvins Vampire.
And I decided to hunt for his grave.
While I love horror and spooky goodness all year long, there’s a handful that I enjoy watching close to Halloween time to bask in all their delicious glory. While I may watch plenty of other horror and Halloween-y movies around this time of year, this list is my top favorites, in no particular order:
It was heartbreaking for me to not attend Halloween Horror Nights 27 last year- this is my favorite Halloween event and it definitely didn’t feel like Halloween without it. And while it’s still up in the air whether or not I’ll get to attend this year, I am super excited about the first three house announcements so far.
Here we are! One of the best Fridays of the year – Friday the 13th! A miscellaneous excuse to watch Friday the 13th and get tattoos! Haha.
Do you ever have one of those days that you just kinda want to keep to yourself, recharge, and watch a bunch of movies? I totally needed one of those days recently. So, a few days ago, I rented a bunch of movies, had some nachos, and enjoyed my time in my pajamas watching movies.
Here’s what I rented:
Halloween Horror Nights 24 gave me a chance to enter into one of my favorite horror film franchises, Halloween. Iconic scenes, the Myers house, being chased by Michael Myers, etc. It was a dream come true, and still one of my favorite houses.
Now, we get to return to Haddonfield.
Just announced for Halloween Horror Nights 26! Halloween: Hell Comes to Haddonfield. We’re going to pick up where the first house left off, and then, according to the release, be pursued by Myers through Haddonfield, into Haddonfield Memorial Hospital. How’s that for a house sequel?!
I cannot WAIT to see what they do with the house this year. Which of the houses are you most excited about?
