The best thing about this week? On Saturday, as the host of the week’s #ScarySocial live tweet, I got to introduce a whole new group of people — including four of my colleagues here at the Shattered Lens — to Lucio Fulci’s City of the Living Dead! Leonard, Jeff, Case, and Patrick joined me and a few others in watching Fulci’s classic zombie film. Here’s just some of their opinions about the film:
#ScarySocial is a weekly event. Basically, every Saturday at 9pm eastern, we watch and live tweet a movie. I’m one of three hosts, along with Tim Buntley and Deanna Dawn. It’s a lot of fun and next week, we’ll be watching the 1986 film, House. So, if you’ve got the time and you want to watch a horror movie with a good group of people, check out our twitter account for more details!
Here’s what else I did this week. To be honest, I probably did more shopping this week than I should have but we all deal with stress of modern life in our own way, right?
