A few days ago, someone asked me in the comments section if I was going to review horror movies again. And the answer is YES! Those of you who have regularily visited my site and been reading my comics, have already noticed that I’m a horror movie guy. Horror is my life.

I ran a norwegian horror movie site some years back where I wrote in-depth reviews, but in the end I found it hard to combine this with my comic projects and dayjob. It simply got too much, and I had to focus more on my cartoonist career that I later ended up working with on full time, which has always been the dream of my life.

Still: horror movies have been a passion since I was a kid, and the urge to share my thoughts about these movies on my site has always been there. Now that I’ve recently launched a new blog and the Halloween season is right round the corner I thought: why the hell not. These won’t be very long reviews, but should give you the idea of what the movie is about and if it might be up your alley, all depending on which horror movies you prefer.

I will review a horror movie every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in october, so it will be 13 in all. Something weird, something obscure and something less obscure, and a classic in the middle.  I will also try to include some movies that haven’t been reviewed a thousand times already.

Round 2! ?

QUESTION 1: From where do you get your inspiration?

Inspiriation

  • Answer: From a lot of places. I can get inspiration from music, movies, other comics, travelling, nature…from life itself, so to speak.

 

QUESTION 2: What was the first horror movie you remember watching, and how did you react to it?

First horror movies

  • Answer: «Gremlins II», I think. To be honest, I don’t remember exactly how I reacted to it, but I remember that it didn’t scare me. Today, I find the «Gremlins» movies to be fun and somewhat childish entertainment (and I prefer the first movie, seen it a lot of times 🙂 ). If I were to think of the first horror movie I saw that actually scared me, however, I think that would be «The Changeling».

 

QUESTION 3: Have you ever really looked forward to see a movie, only to be disappointed?

Zombieland

  • Answer: Yes…«Zombieland» . This was a movie I looked really forward to, and had high hopes for, but I ended up getting really disappointed instead. I expected a zombie-movie with focus on the zombies and the actual “apocalypse” feel that is often portrayed in them, but instead I felt that it fell kind of flat. Yes, the “apocalypse” is there, but the characters seemed to have no problem finding new weapons and more food. Overall, I just didn’t get the hype on this one.

 

QUESTION 4: Do you read manga/watch anime?

Manga & Anime

  • Answer: Before I met Vanja, I was one of those who thought manga and anime primarily dealt with things like PokeMon and “magical girls” with fluffy dresses and extreme high-pitched voices. I found out that there’s a lot more to it than this, though, as Vanja started introducing me to some gems in the “genre”. I think that some of the best horror comics comes from Japan, like «Uzumaki» by Junji Ito, and the comics from Hideshi Hino to mention some. I also like the movies made by Studio Ghibli (R.I.P. by the way, but Studio Ponoc looks like it’s going to bring that beautiful 2D-animation further). We also recently watched «Attack On Titan» , season 1, beautifully animated and with lots of blood and gore, too ?

 

QUESTION 5: What is the weirdest/craziest movie you’ve ever seen?

Weird Movies
