A Feast for the Eyes, Halloween Style!





This post is a collection of the fun we had at the Bates Nut Farm Pumpkin Patch, and a list of some top notch horror films in my opinion. I sort of love the genre of horror but really great ones are pretty rare, I also don’t happen to be friends with anyone willing to watch them with me…so I am on my own there!







THE DESCENT

A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators







WOLF CREEK

Stranded backpackers in remote Australia fall prey to a murderous bushman who offers to fix their car, then takes them captive.







HIGH TENSION

Two college friends, Marie and Alexa, encounter loads of trouble (and blood) while on vacation at Alexa's parents' country home when a mysterious killer invades their quiet getaway.







28 DAYS LATER

Four weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, a handful of survivors try to find sanctuary.






THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE

A lawyer takes on a negligent homicide case involving a priest who performed an exorcism on a young girl.






GINGER SNAPS

This film uses werewolfism as a metaphor for puberty. One of the Fitzgerald sisters, suburban goth girl outcasts, gets bitten by something in the woods (and it ain't a neighborhood dog).






SILENT HILL


A woman goes in search for her daughter, within the confines of a strange, desolate town called Silent Hill. Based on the video game.







SIGNS

A family living on a farm finds mysterious crop circles in their fields which suggests something more frightening to come.






FRONTIERS

A gang of young thieves flee Paris during the violent aftermath of a political election, only to hole up at an Inn run by neo-Nazis






HAPPY HALLOWEEN MOVIE WATCHING!

Indigo had a blast! Your photos are so beautiful, Jennifurla!

Beth said...

Gorgeous photos. Is the Bates Nut farm for real, or is it a homage to Psycho?

Raina said...

Looks like you had a great time! I am not a fan of horror movies; I am a big baby. After I saw the Sixth Sense, I was afraid to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night if I needed too for the longest time..lol My best friend is a huge horror fan, though.

I detest scary movies and won't watch them. I'm a wimp.

Your daughter is precious. Looks like great fun.

Pam said...

Nice photos of a great family! Your daughter is a doll! What a fun day!

Monica H said...

This makes me miss pumpkins. We didn't make it out there this years and I'm bummed. I'll have to live vicariously through your pictures.

Monet said...

What a wonderful collection of photographs! Some of my favorite childhood memories are of my mom and I visiting the pumpkin patch. Thank you for transporting me back in time!

I meant to comment on this last week! I LOVED this post for various reasons: you and your l'il one are adorable, I love reading about family outings and, of course, seeing your horror picks was awesome. I'm glad Mike shares my love for the scary stuff, otherwise I'd have to watch them alone.

The Descent is probably my favorite horror movie ever. When it starts, you think it's going to be full of gratuitous boob scenes but it ends up being a smart, terrifying film.
