Scream Screen 2021: Week 3 (10.15-10.21)

10.15: Halloween Kills (2021)

Neutral/dual pick – highly anticipated release

Rating: There is great discourse on this movie. What seemingly innocuous yet unpopular opinion do you have that matches well with this recent blockbuster?

Jess: Bearing in mind we live in the South: cornbread is gross.

Trav: Relevant since this is a Halloween, but weird since this used to not be the case with this movie: but Halloween 3 is not good.

10.16: Midsommar (2019)

Jess’s pick

Rating: What ritual/common practice would you pair with this modern cult-centric classic?

Jess: I would pair Midsommar with fireworks, because it is both beautiful and horrifying.

Trav: People singing along to Rocky Horror in theaters. Similar to the premise of this film, I’m just surprised so many people buy into it yearly.

10.17: Kill Theory (2009)

Late night Tubi pick

Rating: What theory pairs perfectly with this low budget slasher?

Jess: Any of the theories in “I’ve got a Theory” in Once More with Feeling.

Trav: The theory that people in power in this world are space lizards. Mostly cause both are entertaining in a very dumb way, but incredibly stupid in some way too.

10.18: Evil Dead 2: (1987)

Trav’s pick

Rating: GROOVY BABY. What catchphrase would you pair with this Raimi-Campbell camp classic?

Jess: “Alright alright alright.” That’s how I feel when I watch this.

Trav: OH, behave! – Mike Myers to Ash, probably.

10.19: Freaky (2020)

Jess’s pick

Rating: Pair your ideal body swap with this recent horror comedy.

Jess: I imagine swapping bodies with Mark Hamill is how watching this movie feels: unexpectedly powerful and with the potential to host many sequels.

Trav: Swap me with Michael Cera cause that would be horrifying somehow.

10.20: Scream 3 (2000)

Neutral/dual pick

Rating: What other good thing comes in threes?

Jess: Our pets! Some might think the 3 of them together are overwhelming but they make our lives better for existing.

Trav: 3 Pack movies. Most recently we picked up the Rob Zombie triple feature, including House of 1000 Corpses, Devil’s Rejects, and 3 from Hell. Good shit.

10.21: Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 (2009)

Trav’s pick

Rating: In honor of the last act happening in RHPS costumes, what character would you pair this Zombie outing with?

Jess: Eddie, cuz from the day she was born Laurie was trouble.

Trav: Also Eddie cause Meatloaf is another musician involved in horror. Like Rob Zombie, obviously.
