I love introducing the kids to my favorite directors. The Frighteners is a horror film by one of my favorite directors – Peter Jackson. What’s […]

Friday the 13th Part 2

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Nov 23, 2018 at 6:55pm PST So my DVR is doing this weird thing, where shows disappear and reappear at random. I had recorded this for the us to watch on the last Friday the 13th, but it had disappeared. Lily […]

Night of the Living Dead (1968)

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Nov 20, 2018 at 11:54am PST The kids and I have been watching Eli Roth’s History of Horror and the first episode was about zombies. I figure that the best way to introduce them is to begin with the film that […]

Victor Crowley

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Oct 14, 2018 at 5:40pm PDT My husband records the weirdest movies. At first I thought it was a typical slasher movie, but then it went all meta, a survivor writing about a massacre ten years ago and then a group […]

6-Headed Shark Attack

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Sep 26, 2018 at 4:32pm PDT How many heads could a 6-headed shark give, if a head-giving 6-headed shark could give head? The set-up to the shark feeding frenzy is ridiculously frustrating. A bunch of couples are stranded on a desert […]

Pet Sematary

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Sep 2, 2018 at 1:08pm PDT Lily had been begging to see this freaky ass movie for weeks. It’s Sunday afternoon, gross and rainy – so why not? Pet Sematary was the very first Stephen King book I ever read – the summer between 6th and 7th grade. […]

The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Aug 28, 2018 at 6:21pm PDT I don’t care what they call that damn movie, I really doubt it’s the last one. (Are you sensing a certain cynicality in me, when it comes to franchises? You’re goddamn right you are!) As the last film ended, everyone on the […]

Lake Placid: Legacy

I told you so. The Final Chapter is never, EVER, the final chapter. There’s always another chapter. And sometimes, even another chapter after that! The film starts in Las Vegas, with some kind of break-in, but not to steal something. They were hanging a banner. Whooooooa, what a bunch of badasses. I think they are […]

It (2017)

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Aug 17, 2018 at 6:14pm PDT My procrastination in watching the new It was twofold. First off, It is my favorite Stephen King book and Tim Curry’s Pennywise holds a special place in my heart as the scariest movie villain EVER. If I am scrolling through the guide […]
