Lisa’s Week In Review: 7/13/20 — 7/19/20


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?
