A to Z Reflections
I had a lot of fun with my first A to Z. I will definitely be doing it again next year. It was a lot of work trying to get around to other blogs, and to the people who stopped by mine, but I met a lot of interesting bloggers and added many new blogs to Feedly. (I’ve switched from Google Reader to Feedly since GR will be shutting down soon. So far am liking the change.)
So, if you read any of my A to Z, you’d know my posts were about horror movies. I’m no movie critic, but I’ve always like horror movies and books. (And someday hope to write a horror story).
About half of these movie I’d seen before, about half were new.
Here is a summary.
Children of the Corn is/was one of my favorites. That hasn’t changed.
Motel Hell is another longtime favorite that also takes the cheese.
Babysitter Wanted, a new one, isn’t a favorite, but I got a big kick out of the cheese.
Virus was new to me, and I’m glad I saw it.
Kill Theory is a new favorite.
Flu Bird and Zombie Strippers are both worthless. I shouldn’t even be repeating their name.
I really don’t have one ‘favorite’ type of horror. I’ve probably seen more slasher flicks, but I like psychological horrors, paranormal, alien, monster. Whatever… I like it all.
Sadly enough, I got an theme idea for next year’s challenge. Good in some ways, but bad cause for the next 11 months, when inspiration strikes, I’ll have to write down my ideas so I don’t forget. I suppose that’s better than trying to pull it together at the end.
Thank you to all the wonderful people who put together A to Z and keep it running. And congratulations to all those who made it through, and I’ll see you next year. (Or hopefully sooner.)
