True Blood Collection

As a way to keep you up on all the goodies offered in the shop the Laughing Vixen Lounge blog will be showing collections. It's an easy way to see all items offered in a common theme without having to search the whole shop's data base. The collections will also be listed on the right side bar so you can easily access past collections.

We start this week with the "True Blood" collection. This is an ever growing collection that will soon include some bracelets, key chains and I'm sure more pendants. You can find all of these over at Laughing Vixen Lounge on Etsy. Just click here and you'll be magically transported there. I also love custom work so if you have a special True Blood item you'd like just drop me a line through the shop.

"Dead and Breakfast" Fear Friday Selection July 12-18

Here we go with this week's Fear Friday title. You will either love me or hate me for this one. This week we are viewing the 2004 classic (hehe) "Dead and Breakfast". This is a big cheesy slice of horror movie heaven.
A van full of young people are forced to stay at a quaint little B&B in the middle of one hell of a town. We have Zombies, bad jokes, lots of squirting blood and a roaming band playing music as it happens. Yep! If you're looking for big names they aren't here, but it does star two of my favorites...Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, The Watchmen) and Jeremy Sisto (May, Waitress, Law and Order). Others lucky enough to be in this gem...David Carradine, Ever Carradine, Portia de Rossi, Erik Palladino, Gina Philips and Diedrich Bader.
So go rent it (or borrow it), pick a night to watch it (we won't tell if it's not actually Friday), make some popcorn, turn off the lights and meet back here on Saturday with your questions answered and opinions ready to fly. There will be a new "review post" for everyone to post their answers on. Enjoy!
***You can also get 20 entries in the July Giveaway for playing along. Click here for details***

Fear Friday review of "Skinwalker".

So, what did everyone think of this week's selection "Skinwalkers"? I was quite surprised by this movie as I thought it might be a disaster. So here we go with the question and answers.
  • Did this movie make you jump, yawn or laugh? I would go with laugh. This is the perfect example of a brilliantly bad movie. It was fun, silly and made me giggle. A decadent cheesy little treat.

  • Did you like or dislike the monster/villain? These villains are great. They are a cross between extras in a Mad Max movie and a biker gang from a music video. Growing up on 80's movies I'm use to the bad guys looking like this. If I wanted this movie to be really good this would be a bad sign, but since I gave in to the silliness they seemed right at place.

  • If you were one of the characters in the movie which one would you be? Who wouldn't want to be the bad girl with the really big boobs who's kickin' ass and takin' down names? But I'm sure I'd end up being the mom who doesn't have a clue. She thinks her husband is dead but he's really a Skinwalkin' Wolf Man who's having fun with the chick with the really big boobs.

  • If the monster/villain could have had one superpower what should it have been? They seem to have lots of powers to start with. They scale walls like Spiderman, have a heightened sense of smell and heal extremely quickly. Maybe they could have flown. Flying werewolves sound pretty cool.

  • What was the best line or scene in the movie? I loved the gun fight about 20 minutes in to the movie. It was very over the top and completely cheesy. Especially liked the part when Nana turned around and was packin' heat. With her last bullet she hits the gas pump and gloriously blows up the gas station. know you're in for a good one right then and there.

So leave your answers and let me know what you thought of it. We'll be back tomorrow with next week's film.
