Photo by me at Shoreline Amphitheatre in California at a concert featuring Korn & Staind 2021 may not have been an especially good year in other ways but it was most certainly an amazing year for music. Not only did live music return (which I have complex but mostly joyful and grateful feelings about) but dozens upon dozens of fantastic albums were released this year. So I thought it only fitting to celebrate the year in music with this list of my top albums of 2021. Bearing in mind that rankings are always a little complex and these things are constantly shifting (my top three are honestly pretty much interchangeable based on my mood) blah blah blah all art is subjective, etc....enjoy my top 21 albums of 2021!
Welcome to Day 28 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon The 28th theme of the month is "AHHH!-nthology." Today we turn our focus to the many short film collections in the horror genre. It might be an oldie you just never got around to seeing or something from a fresh young filmmakers, today is your day. The sky is the limit and bonus Pumpkin Points if you watch more than one movie a day on theme! Here are a few recommendation from the team... Group Pick: V/H/S/2 (2013) directed by Simon Barrett, Adam Winged, Eduardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Timo Tjhahjanto, Gareth Evans, and Jason Eisener. This sequel is one of the best in the franchise and a must watch especially for the short Safe Haven which is a personal favorite of Stephen and Dani. D-Rock: - Black Sabbath (1963) directed by Mario Bava - 1h 32m - Shudder - Nightmare Cinema (2018) directed by Alejandro Brugués, Joe Dante, Mick Garris, Ryūhei Kitamura, and David Slade - 1h 59m - Shudder - Southbound (2015) directed by Radio Silen
Welcome to Day 29 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon The 29th theme of the month is "I Know What You Did in the 90's." Bust out the flannel because today we're watching a movie from the 1990's (or the 1890's I guess but that's probably not as fun). We enjoyed our 80's day today is equally as special because we were alive for this whole decade. Here are a few recommendations from our childhood, taken from our own watchlists for today... Group Pick: Blair Witch Project (1999) directed by Eduardo Sanches, and Daniel Myrick is a once in a century type of horror movie and it ended the 90's and kicked off the last 20 years of horror. This film has been emulated by many but still remains a one of a kind original. What better way to celebrate spooky season by getting lost in the woods with this classic film. D-Rock: - I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) directed by Jim Gillespie - 1h 41m - Amazon Prime, Peacock - The People Under the Stairs (1991) direc
