31 Days of Halloween
I *LOVE* October! Why? Because my birthday is in October for one. For two: Halloween is in October and I *LOVE* Halloween. In the words of the darling Lola: "It is my favorite, and my best." Something about October and Halloween always puts me in the mood for movies containing supernatural elements. So, for every day in October I will watch and review one movie in said genre. I warn you ahead of time that some of them will completely and unashamedly cheesy and I do not apologize for it.
So... Onwards and Sideways to
Day 1 of Halloween Movie Review:
Tonight the hubs and I rented and watched Shadow of the Vampire, with John Malkovich... and more importantly Eddie Izzard and Cary Elwes (Both actors I love).
The movie is about the making of the movie Nosferatu, in which the actor playing the Vampire is actually a vampire. In the movie you discover that the director knowingly hired the Vampire to play an actor playing a vampire and in return promises him actress Greta Schroeder as a meal.
Throughout the filming, crew members "mysteriously" disappear and in the end, nearly everyone is dead. Including the Vampire. ......
Or IS he?????
BUM! BUM! BUM!
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed it. But it's probably because I thought it was funny. And because of Eddie Izzard.. who was pretty funny. And of course Cary Elwes.....who was also funny.
Stay Tuned for Tomorrow's "Halloween" movie review!
