HHMMM: Day 25

So today's mix of movies is a little more eclectic. I watched a few new ones, and one I've seen before but never grow tire of. I'm really happy I finally got to see The Devil's Carnival, and that it just happened to be on Netflix instant! Rock on! Tomorrow I think I will not have as many movies, but since I am STILL watching Devil's Carnival as I type this, I will count it towards tomorrow's movie watching. I have a party I am going to tomorrow night. It's Fairy-tale themed, so I won't be dressing as undead Bonny and Clyde.

First off, I shall record the fact I watched the remaining two episodes of The Search For The Next Elvira! 

 (90 mins of awesome/2007)

Kweeny's Rating: Beehive Me Elvira!

I actually ended up staying up the night I said I was watching this and watched ALL the episodes. I really wanted to see who would win. Sure enough, the girl I liked best won. This fine lady in the picture is named April, and she just had the best Elvira impression of all the girls chosen. And look at her? She's totally got the um...outfit filled out if you know what I mean. I love her personality too. She's such a geek it's adorable!

Fragile (101 mins/2005)

Kweeny's Rating: Breakable

Summary: While this movie had a few interesting things to say about death, it wasn't exactly impressive. I see where they were trying to go with this one, but it fell flat for me. I felt a little bored at times, and that's not a good sign. This one was a Fangoria Frightfest pick, so I am a little disappointed in it. I expected more from Fangoria.

Let The Right One In (115 mins/2008)

Kweeny's Rating: A proper vampire film

Summary: If you don't know this already, I love this movie. I love it to pieces. It's deep, emotional, and has a great cast. Let Me In has nothing on this one, because this movie really captures the brutality  sorrow, and horror of the book. I like my vampires to be predators. To retain the monster within them. They don't sparkle for me. A proper vampire in my books wears the skin of a human but it's smile is deadly. you should feel uneasy around them despite their perceived innocence or beauty. They should be immortal monsters, liars with cherub faces. Hell, they don't even need the angelic faces to make me happy. but if they must be beautiful, they better have the cruelty to back up their "vamp" side.

The Devil's Carnival (55 mins/2012)

Kweeny's Rating: Devilish

Summary: I am a huge fan of horror musicals, and especially Repo! The Genetic Opera, so when I heard the creators of Repo! got together to do another dark musical, I was excited! I've been waiting to see this for some time, and now Netflix gives me a gift on instant, just in time for my Marathon! YAY! was it any good? Well, I am enjoying it so far. I suppose I will have to do a in-depth review later when I have more time and have watched it through. Until then, let's just say I am entertained at least.

Now time for bed readers. An evil fairy Queen needs her beauty rest. I want to be ready to cast spells tomorrow. 


  1. New Elvira has some REALLY NICE personalities, I mean personality... I mean... ummm... well, you know.

  2. I had no idea there was going to be a new Elvira!!! I need to watch this show no and try and forget who the winner is so I can act all suprised.

    Here, here with the vampires!!! Couldn't agree more. Funny you mention Let the Right One In, I've just brought it for this weekend I can't wait to watch it now.

    Enjoy your party Kweeny
