'Tis the night before Halloween, the night when houses all across the land get TP'd and egged, pumpkins get smashed and teenagers generally show themselves to be the little bastards that they truly are. I'm glad to say that my days of running riot in the neighbourhood are behind me, AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR DAT! Right now I'm sipping a cup of tea, about to watch a horror movie, the same thing I have been doing pretty much every previous evening of this month. I'm so cool.

Speaking of Mischief Night, a couple of weeks back I found a trailer for a new horror movie of the same name. It is an old school home invasion/slasher movie but the twist is that the protagonist/final girl is blind. It looks like it'll be an interesting movie and I have no idea when I will get to see it but I'm excited! Check it out...

Looks awesome, right? I really like the idea of the blind protagonist. A couple of nights ago I watched Curse of Chucky and the main protagonist in that is in a wheelchair. I think giving the protagonist an already existing obstacle to overcome before the 'horror' even begins is really interesting and is not something that you see very often. It makes me want to write a horror script where the final girl only has one arm or something? I don't know. Maybe I'm the only person who finds this kind of thing intriguing? Are there any other horror movies with disadvantaged protagonists?

Not that you were, but if you've been wondering why I haven't been covering SHOCKtober the way I usually do; I have, over on my new horror movie blog NERDS DIE LAST: Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4

Whatever you're doing this year, I hope everyone has a bitchin' Halloween! DRESS UP, WATCH A HORROR MOVIE, CAUSE A RUCKUS, KILL A HOMELESS, PUNCH AN ANIMAL. Just kidding, don't punch animals.
