Re-Animator

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jan 14, 2019 at 3:47pm PST Re-Animator was another film featured in Eli Roth’s History of Horror, so of course, my kids had to see it. On top of that, there’ll be a Re-Animator reunion at Texas Frightmare Weekend this year, […]

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 […]

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 […]
