Hello, Faithful Spoilerites.  I want to play a game.  The rules are simple…  There are many horror, suspense or slasher flicks that have spawned sequel after sequel.  Friday The 13th.  Nightmare On Elm Street.  Saw.  V/H/S.  Each of them has their own peculiar charms, but during this season of spookiness and things that go bump in the night, we’re going to program our own scary movie marathon.  You may choose any single franchise, but you must watch ALL of the movies, no skips, no anachronic order.  If you are successful, you may proceed with your life as normal, satisfied with the fact that you’ve learned something and leading us to today’s bone-chilling query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds you that if you fail, you will also proceed with your life as normal, but that’s not important right now, asking: If you had to pick ONE franchise for a scary movie marathon, which one would you sit down to watch?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    First Blood/Rambo. That man is a murder machine with a body count that rivals any masked wielder of machetes, chainsaws, etc.

    It needs to be one with reasonable amount of sequels, because I can’t stay awake for dozen plus movies in a row. Maybe alien.

  3. The only problem with horror (or any genre) franchises is you get diminishing returns the further you go. Maybe you get 2 or 3 decent movies, and half a dozen unbearably bad ones in a series.

    Maybe Gremlins 1 and 2. You get one good one, one very dumb just still fun one, and then you can turn off the tv and go outside.
