Macabre Media: Gone Girl, The Calling, Before I Go To Sleep

Today at Macabre Media, it’s all about the women .


Ogre and I  recently saw Gone Girl in the theater. I was really caught up in Rosamund Pike’s performance and she is definitely the star of this film. Gone Girl is a great date movie, if you want to have some in-depth conversation with your partner after seeing it.

We missed The Calling (which I included as an “& LATER” selection in a past blog) when it was playing on the big screen, but we rented it via Redbox. (I don’t think it had much of a run.) This is not a typical serial killer movie. I’m not even sure I’d call it a thriller. It was, however, a serviceable canvas on which Susan Sarandon could paint a complex and realistic character.

Neither movie is precisely horror, so for those of you who want something a little more seasonally appropriate this week, have a look at my Netflix streaming suggestions.

At the theaters:

Gone Girl (2014) R

In Redbox:

The Calling (2014) R

On Netflix:

I rounded up my recommendations for Halloween-appropriate movies which are now available through Netflix streaming in the post:

Almost Halloween: reminders and shortcuts for this week.


If we go to the movies on Saturday or Sunday (once Halloween is done) we’ll probably see either Horns (which I mentioned last week) or this one:

Before I Go To Sleep (2014) R

A woman wakes up every day, remembering nothing as a result of a traumatic accident in her past. One day, new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her.

Starring Nicole Kidman & Colin Firth
Opening on October 31st, 2014

As usual, I’ll send a heads-up out on FB & Twitter & G+ when we get a little closer to the release date.

Macabre Media: Dance in the Graveyards plus Daniel Radcliff in Horns


Tonight’s post comes to you courtesy of my daughter, Pooka. Last night she sent me a link to this amazing video. This could be my theme song (even OUR theme song.) It just makes me happy. I had to share it with you all ASAP (though it would have been entirely appropriate to save it for The Day of the Dead.)


Horns, the movie adaption of Joe Hill’s book, starring Daniel Radcliff, is coming to the big screen on October 31st, 2014. Here’s the trailer:
