Scary Movies

Last night, there was a big rainstorm, lots of wind and heavy rain. My husband is out of town right now. So after getting the kids in bed, I decided to watch the movie I had just received from Netflix, a thriller called: Identity. Here is the blurb on it: Ten complete strangers are stranded at a remote desert motel during a raging storm and soon find themselves the target of a deranged murderer. As their numbers thin out, the travelers begin to turn on each other, as each tries to figure out who the killer might be. This spine-tingling thriller stars John Cusack, Jake Busey, Rebecca DeMornay, Clea DuVall and Ray Liotta.
Ok, note the entire movie takes place during a raging storm. I was watching this really scary movie during a raging storm. What was I thinking?!! Man oh man was I scared. But did I stop watching it, oh no, of course not. That is the point of watching scary thriller movies, to be scared. So it worked. I was scared, and I didn't get murdered, that just happened in the movie. And I didn't get to sleep for a while after that. But oh well, that is what naps are for, right?!

I loved Identity, too! A good scare (as opposed to the Exorcist which was a bad scare).

I LOVE netflix... but I'm not too fond of scary movies, so I'll pass on Identity.

This week we watch THE DISH. if you like quirky comedies.. get it. It's about the radio station in Australia that was responsible for receiving and transmitting Apollo 11's broadcast from the first landing on the Moon.

The problems at the site.. and the townfolk.. it's a good giggle.
