The Future of this Blog (By T)

Ahh, The Halloween Horror Blog... A place of wisdom and hotdog stand. This blog was started in 2009 by my brother, John. Most posts are from him and so far, now two are from me. Two authors on this blog now. How many more could there be? The Halloween Horror Blog could end up having a whole team of writers. Reviews, expectations, video games and the occasional random post like this. These are what make this The Halloween Horror Blog. For 7 years, now, this blog has made quite a lot of remarks. From horror movie remakes to how to survive the appocolypse, this blog has made quite a lot of views. (Much more than the views made by my old closed-down blog.) That's why the future of this blog is brighter than ever right now. I know this post has nothing to do with what this blog is about, but we need to start thinking about the future of The Halloween Horror Blog. This blog needs to get as big as it can get, as many posts as possible, as many years as it needs. This blog will be the king of Blogger someday, and we need to be prepared for when it is.

Coraline Review (By T)

                                 WARNING: THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS

Well, since my brother (who is the owner of this blog) decided to break this being a Halloween focused blog, I figured I'd go ahead and do a review on a pretty creepy movie... Coraline. Now, I don't really see this as a horror movie as I watched it for the first time on Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family) back when I was 8 and didn't get scared. However, Wikipedia states it as being a "Stop Motion, Dark Fantasy, Horror film," I might as well give it a shot. Now, I haven't seen this movie in quite a long time, so if I'm a little rough around the edges, excuse me. Before I start, I'd like to say that this is most likely the only horror movie I will ever see because I don't like horror movies. Horror video games however, such as the Five Nights at Freddy's series, Slender and Vanish I'm fine with, but horror MOVIES? Heck no. Coraline was a movie released in 2009 with high expectations, and those expectations were right. The movie sold so many tickets at the theaters that the creator of the novel it's based on was super happy. Now, basically the plot of the movie is that Coraline finds a mysterious door in her house and falls into it. This isn't just an ordinary door. There's a portal behind it. That portal leads to an opposite universe where there's this very creepy looking monster called the "Beldame" who basicly kidnaps people, clones them and replaces the clones' eyes with black buttons. The Beldame does this to the opposite universe versions of Coraline's parents and her cat. The parents are confused to why Coraline doesn't have buttons for eyes so they take her to the Beldame. Coraline learns the dark secrets behind this opposite universe and sets out to save everyone, stop the Beldame and get back to her universe. This IS a pretty creepy movie, so I don't think it should be watched by anyone under the age of 8. All in all, this is a pretty good movie! Solid story plot, creepy/unsettling characters, a creepy feeling through the whole 2 hours, this is a pretty great movie. Like I said earlier, I don't think it's suitable for anyone 7 or under, but some 7 year olds might like it, but still. It's a pretty great movie. In the end, I give this movie a 9/10. Well, that was my review on Coraline! Hope you enjoyed!
