Synopsis: This movie intrigued me so much when I first watched in the early 2000's. I would always play Alan Parker's situation in my mind, hoping that I would never be placed in such a delicate situation. Riding the Bullet had so many hidden lessons and meanings, you could choose to interpret it in so many different light. Well, for me, I saw a young man struggling with his very own existence since the day he cowardly decided against riding the bullet (roller coaster ride) from his teens. As a result, he grew up to be indecisive, scared, insecured and obsessed with death.

Level of Horror: Nature Attack
Why: The Birds was loosely adapted from Daphne Du Maurier's novel of the same name. The storyline tells us about Melanie played Tippi Hedren, a wealthy, beautiful young socialite who meets Mitch played by Rod Taylor ironically in a bird shop. After a rather awkward first impression, she decides to go surprise Mitch at his home in Bodega Bay, California. She brought him a pair of lovebirds he had been trying to purchase for his sister at the bird shop where they first met. She was making an attempt at seeing him again. Instead Melanie met with his possessive, overbearing mother, Lydia played by Jessican Tandy, his sweet little sister ............

Title: An American Werewolf in London (1981)
Level of Horror: Horror-Comedy, Werewolf
Why: I picked this movie for our weekly fix because it's about one of the most tragic accidents ever to occur to anyone in a plot while traveling. To sum up the movie -- It revolves around two American College friends, David and Jack, who are backpacking through Europe who find themselves turned into American Appetizers to a vociferous nocturnal beast in the backwoods of London. An American Werewolf in London is a highly humorous and scary ride. Overall, the theater scene remains one of my favorite ones to date.

Weekly Dosage: Jack and Coke
Level of Horror: Zombie
Why: I can remember the first time I watched NOLTD, I thought to myself, this is so original, this has never been done before, we never had a black man as the hero, although that black man got accidentally killed in the last scene but no less he was the lead man throughout the movie and that's all that counts. I mean NOLTD was George A. Romero's first zombie installment, the idea came from Richard Matheson, "Last Man on Earth" seeds. George wanted to dig in deeper, to begin where it all started before humanity is reduced to one man being alive, what exactly occured, since he didn't want to completely copy Richard ............

Weekly Dosage: Beer
Level of Horror: Slasher
Why: This premise is a French Gem titled Haute Tension in their motherland, that revealed one of the most twisted endings ever in Slasher movie history. Two female friends from College, Alexia (Maiwenn) and Marie (Cecile De France) find themselves entrapped in one of the most gruesome series of killings while vacationing on Alexia's family farmhouse. We have no idea, why this normal family living peacefully on their farm, haphazardly will get a visit from a psycho-killer in the middle of the night. As it turns out, it was definitely not a ramdom act. This movie is so great because of the tension it builds throughout until the final act............

Weekly Dosage: Gin and Juice
Level of Horror: Horror Comedy
Why: I don't know where to start, this movie had me laughing so hard that I lost my voice. It had its fair share of scary moments where I kept having to put my hand in front of my eyes waiting out the sound effects to paint the picture for that next scene. Drag Me To Hell recounts the tale of a young loan officer named Christine Brown who denies an old gypsy woman an extension on a home loan purely to impress her boss so she can consequently get a promotion. The old gypsy woman does not retire without casting the lamia spell on the loan officer. The ending is a must-see! If you have not seen this horror-comedy, shame on you...if you already have ............
