SEASON 3 - COVEN

Words cannot express how much I loved this season. Jessica Lange. Stephen King's muse Kathy Bates. Emma Roberts and her glorious outfits. Freaking Stevie Nicks is a witch. I LOVED IT.

I'm pretty sure no other season can live up to Coven, and now instead of just dreaming of my Hogwarts letter, I'll be waiting for my admittance to Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies.

SEASON 2 - ASYLUM

This season had a LOT going on. Between Satan possessed nuns (my personal favorite, I know everyone is shocked there!) to alien abductions to serial killers to murderous Santas, this season took ensemble cast to a whole new level. Zachary Quinto is, as always, brilliant, as is Jessica Lange and her epic Boston accent.

I love the little twists that happen at the end of every season, and how abruptly they seem to end. And I am SO EXCITED for Coven next!

So it's the best month of the year again, and instead of the usual Halloween festivities I also have my WEDDING, so the logistics of planning out 31 movies I'd never seen before just wasn't going to happen this year.

BUT there was no chance that I'd break my October tradition. I'm just changing it up a bit this year and watching the entire series of American Horror Story.

Oh. Hell. Yes.

SEASON 1 - MURDER HOUSE

This was the only season that I've seen before, way back when it first aired, and I'd forgotten how this show just sucks you in. Jessica Lange and Zachary Qunito are both outstanding.

Anthology horror is and will always be my favorite genre, and I've loved everything Ryan Murphy has done all the way back to Nip/Tuck, so it's no surprise that I would love this show.

I'm more than a little obsessed with setting in film/TV/books and I love it when the place has enough presence to be a character. The murder house absolutely does. Love it love it love it. Can't wait to see what the other seasons bring.

I've totally been spending the past few weeks reading utterly massive amounts of Dean/Castiel fic. I forgot how much I love this ship. SO SO MUCH. I literally read strangenessandcharm's entire catalogue. Need more. I'VE MISSED YOU FANDOM.

So.

It’s been awhile.

It’s funny. I never consciously chose leave fandom. And honestly, I don’t even consider that I “left.” Life just happened and got busier and busier, and one day I realized that it had been far far too long since I posted.

I’ve always been one of those people that has a hard time returning to something when I’ve been gone a long time. Whether it’s getting back in contact with a friend that I haven’t spoken to in ages or picking up a hobby that fell by the wayside.

I always feel like I’ll get the confirmation that no one noticed my absence. Or my return.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

You all might remember Joe. Wonderful, sweet, perfect for me Joe. We’re only a few weeks past our 6th anniversary (April 17.) On our 5th anniversary he proposed. He actually picked a ring almost identical to the one on my secret Pinterest wedding board. All on his own!

We sold our house in Austin in December and moved to North Carolina. MASSIVE mistake. Asheville is a nice enough town, but after almost seven years in Austin, I’m a city girl through and through. I am not cut out for Appalachia. When we head back to Austin in October for our wedding, we’re moving back permanently.

Life has been tough for the past six months. I lost my three closest friends due to some ridiculous drama that one of them started. The three girls who were supposed to be my bridesmaids, including Duia my best friend for a decade.

I came to Texas for her, and she hasn’t spoken to me for five months. If anyone wants to hear the whole sordid drama, I can spin quite the epic novel.

Anyway, fandom was a home for me once. Despite being dumped by my closest fandom friend in the cruelest way possible, fandom will always be home. I don’t know how many of you are still out there or if fandom has migrated to other places, but if you’re still here say hi.

I miss this. I miss having someone to squeal about the newest SPN ep with. I miss fanfic. I miss my easy season one world.

1. It Follows

A little late posting this one because of parties and costumes and such. It was a good movie and a unique plot, but I'm not quite sure I really see what all the hype was about. The pacing was a bit slow for my taste, but the acting was decent and the characters were fairly likable. The main girl was a much better person that I am though. I'd be finding some townie and passing that evil along immediately.

2. Spring

Loved it! I really hope more movies in the same vein as Spring and Only Lovers Left Alive happen. I love how it wasn't overtly horror but the horror elements were there. Louise was fascinating and Evan was flawed and broken but sweet. Beautifully shot, very unique movie.

4. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

Loved it. I love a good horror parody, and Alan Tudyk improves every movie. A hilarious take on the whole slasher movie genre. The rednecks in the creepy cabin are the good guys, and Dale was basically the human equivalent of a labrador. Big and derpy and gets in all kinds of trouble, but you just can't get mad at him.

3. A Good Marriage

I really liked this one too. Stephen King is my homeboy, and this movie was just so pragmatic. Very Maine. It wasn't overdramatic. There wasn't a huge scene with poor Darcy being chased through the house by her murderous husband. She just did what had to be done.

But always remember folks, clear your browser history.

6. Only Lovers Left Alive

This one was recommended by Jenny Martinez​, and I really loved it! It was lush and languid and textured. Tom Hiddleston was, as usual, glorious. Love the historical in-jokes and how both Adam and Eve seemed equal parts bored and fascinated by the world, exactly as you'd imagine a pair of ancient immortals would be.

5. Dream House

Poor damaged, crazy James Bond. Not a bad movie with a lot of good psychological twists and turns. I won't be rushing out to watch it again, but I'd give it a solid B.

8. The Human Race

Surprisingly enjoyable movie with a sci-fi twist. Definitely low budget, but interesting concept. When it initially started, I was thinking that the movie would keep switching between the POVs of the different racers. I still think that would have been a good choice with the film, but on the whole I enjoyed it.

7. Prom Night

Very standard slasher movie, but I still liked it. Brittany Snow just cries so pretty, and sometimes a generic slasher movie is just what you're in the mood for. It's like the dollar menu of cinema.
