This is Ms Aya blogging to you in Starbucks! My eyes are on the verge of shutting so here I am, blogging just so I do not doze off in public. Imagine how awkward it’d be!
Although my intention is to write about people and photography, that shall come another time.
For this whole day, I have movies on my mind; 80s to today’s date but mostly reminiscing old school movies such as The Frighteners, Demon Knight, Hardware, Child’s Play and other horror movies.
During my childhood, we used to rent tapes from a store and majority were horror and action movies.
I scarcely remember having any comedy or one of those touching kind of movies. Well apart from Edward Scissorhands and Powder.
Anyway because I was quite young at that time, I could not understand the context for certain movies (eg: Powder. I can only remember a very white and pale man running down the streets and then in an open field, he got struck by lightning).
That said, I’m looking up on Youtube and Wikipedia to get a better understanding on those movies which I could not fathom from long ago. However there are some movies which I could not remember their titles.
I remember there was a movie about a woman escaping to the forest on a unicorn and in the midst, the unicorn fell into a quick sand puddle and was unable to pull out hence died.
Another movie would be along the title of Houses on Terror Track. I tried looking for this movie but can’t seem to find it. Perhaps the title is wrong. Mmm…
It is about this newly weds who wishes to buy a house to start their marriage life. So they were taken by a real estate agent to view the houses in a particular street. They were captivated by the first house they visited however the agent told them that it is haunted and goes into telling the story. The previous husband and wife were possessed and cursed into repeating the same murder scene whereby the husband gets possessed, kills wife and then proceed to hang himself. As the audience, we get to see the flash backs.
After knowing about the incident and sensing the tingles, the newly weds decided to decline and move to see the next house.
In the second house, again they were taken and once more, was told about its residents and gruesome story. The previous family had a daughter who one day found a black monkey and decided to adopt it. However the monkey was mischievous and so evil, it costed the lives of the people in the house while the little girl still sided the monkey despite the misfortunes.
Bothered by such a tale, the newly weds did not want the house and moved to the third.
I cannot remember what is the third tale but after that, the newly weds were very spooked and bend on leaving that neighborhood. The real estate got so desperate and pestered the husband to sign the papers and accept the house.
The agent who was rejected by the weds became so disoriented and insane, stabbed his pen into the husband’s eyes and then chased the wife down the street screaming for her to sign the agreement papers. As the wife was running for her life, she passed by the neighbors yelling for help to realize they were a bunch of psychos carrying out twisted activities such as children bathing in a pool of blood, mowing a corpse and so on.
Well.. This is as much as I remember the movie. Damn, if only I knew what the title is! (Cries)
I’d like to rewatch it someday! (Laughs)
Mm… There is something I would like to point out and be clear though.
Sheep is not a movie buff. I mean — I like movies but would not declare to be a movie buff.
Unlike movie buffs, I do not know all the back scenes and the facts about movies. Sure, I like to talk about movies and listen to what others say however, sometimes people thought of me to be a fanatic and then gets disappointed when I don’t seem to match their wave length.
Well you can say sheep is superficial in many things therefore, I apologize and please don’t have high hopes for me at all.
Aah… I’m still in Starbucks. So lonely here. T_T
