    I was never interested in Silent House to start with. It looked pretty dull. Daybreakers on the other hand--dude, it's Ethan Hawke as a vampire. The worldbuilding is terrific, and some of the effects, but I don't really like any of the characters. That's a problem.

    I can see that being a big problem.

    I thought the same thing with silent house, but my friends said it was awesome! So i wasted alot of money to be disappointed

    Never saw daybreakers though.

    Oooooh! An then you can lure someone in here and offer them something to drink, and when they get hammered you can newbie-Q them and sneak the rest of the Gremlins in their pockets or something. Teehee!

    I thought Ethan was the non-vampire in that?

    Regardless, it's in my "to be watched" queue.

    Fav horror movie I've seen lately was The Orphanage. Even with the movie having subtitles/being in Spanish, it was very good.

    The list of ones I couldn't even get into is way longer.

    Laurie: I'll take 5 gremlins in exchange for a dogeared copy of Dracula and a six-pack of Jell-O pudding snacks, please.

    Done!

    Now, do I need to give you the soggy corpse and whiskey or was that the other way round?

    I did mention I hadn't seen it yet, right?

    Sheesh, spoiler alert next time.



    (I'll assume that was not terribly spoilery.)

    Uhm...you can give me 10 Gremlins and the whiskey and I give you the soggy corpse.

    Yes, that's what I meant.

    Boston: That's in the trailer, it's not really a spoiler. But I won't say anything else if you don't want me to.

    Laurie: Chocolate, or one of those weird swirly ones.

    Alrighty! Bring it on over and I'll have your whiskey and gremlins boxed and ready to go. The buzzards have been circling my neighbor's house, so we'll drop your corpse near the fence over there.

    Buzzards here have just been circling the local hospital.

    No, really, not making that up.

    I'd consider seeing a vet then for any medical emergencies. Do you know a good one up your way? You know, to post the number by the phone.

    I promise to take very good care of the Gremlins. *nods*

    Excuse me, Laurie? I thought I asked for gremlins. Why do these have such long, fluffy tails? The pudding's excellent though. In that won't-expire-till-the-apocalypse, no-refridgeration-needed kind of way.

    ^I know, right? That and Spaghetti-Os. There was a time between ages 11 and about 14 where I would eat nothing else. *shudder* I don't know how I survived.
