“It’s not a horror film but Martha Marcy May Marlene is one of the few films that has genuinely terrified me.”
“I love horror movies because it is the only genre that can make me feel something long after the movie is over; Fear can stay with you for many nights. Although they don’t scare me as much as they used to, I’m still looking for horror movies that can bring that long-lasting feeling back again.”
So I just got back from Washington, D.C. and my favorite part was definitely the Crime & Punishment Museum and I wanted to share some of the things I liked from it with you guys!
First Picture: John Wayne Gacy’s leather jacket which he was supposedly arrested in. On the right of it is his wallet, still how it was when it was taken from him, including things like his Radio Shack member card. Underneath is his painting supplies where he wrote his name on the case and his typewriter.
Second Picture: One of my favorite (and the creepiest) part of the exhibit: John Wayne Gacy’s “Pogo the Clown” suits.
Third Picture: A self-portrait drawn by Gacy himself.
Fourth Picture: A photo of Gacy as Pogo the Clown signed by him.
Fifth Picture: The handcuffs used to handcuff Jeffrey Dahmer when he was arrested and his signature.
Sixth Picture: A baseball and a photo signed by Charles Manson.
Seventh Picture: "Old Smokey." The electric chair responsible for killing over 125 men on death row.
Eighth Picture: Probably my favorite part of the museum. Ted Bundy’s Volkswagon Beetle.
Not to mention hundreds of other unbelievable things, the whole museum takes about an hour just to walk through! If you ever have the chance, DEFINITELY go, probably one of the best experiences of my life.
“I am probably the only person who thinks that The Sixth Sense is boring and a complete waste of time. “I see dead people” is the worst line of cinematic history.”
“We Are What We Are was a pretty good film. It was sad, and a little slow, but I actually really enjoyed it.”
"When I was only a 6-year-old,I remember watching The Exorcist alone at home during a summer night. I’ve never thought I would get bored of a horror movie in my whole life."
“Anyone who hasn’t seen The ABC’s of Death is truly missing out. It’s one of my favorite modern horror movies, hands down. It’s such a creative idea. It’s got to also be one of the weirdest “What the fuck did I just watch?” movies you’ll ever see too. It should be on everyone’s list.”
“The Woman…. Oh my hell… What can I say about The Woman… I need to say something… I just… I can’t believe I sat through that whole thing…. It was.. It was the soundtrack…. The soundtrack just …. It destroyed my brain cells…. No horror movie I can ever think of has chosen music like that…. Why would you do that?…. My brain… I am so confused…”
“I don’t like when people say they hated Silent House. I mean, it’s not my favorite, but you have to give the creators and Elizabeth Olsen credit for doing that entire movie in one take. I mean.. that’s insane!”
“I want them to remake Rosemary’s Baby. I think they made a tv show about it, but I want a big screen movie made. I loved the old one and worry about it being ruined, but at the same time I want to see what people could make out of it with today’s technology.”
“I liked the end of rec 3, I thought it was romantic. However, it was the only thing I liked about the movie”
"Hostel 2 was the only one of the three Hostel films that I liked. The first and third one spent about an hour focusing on nudity and sex. It was unnecessary. The second seemed to flow better and it had some good gore/scary moments but also threw in a bit of humor now and then. It was much more enjoyable to watch."
“Sometimes I wish that some of the “found footage” films that have been made would be remade into actual well made films. I think there are a few that would end up being better had it not been made in a “found footage” style.”
