The last topic of the year from Long and Short Reviews, and it was an interesting one. I could maybe come up with one or two gift ideas, but ten? So, since I love films myself, I thought about what I would have liked and the best film-related presents I've received.
A subscription to Shudder. This is a streaming service focused on horror films and is one of my favourites. It's where I discovered the next item on my list...
Hell House LLC. This and its sequels are some of the best horror films I've ever seen. Even if you don't usually like found footage, they're extremely effective.
Heavenly Creatures. Not a horror, but one of my favourite films of all time. Kate Winslet plays Juliet Hulme, one of the two teenage girls who murdered one of their mothers in New Zealand's most shocking murder case of its time.
A multi-region player. Because some of the best films are international and can't be got within my region code.
The Conjuring 1 and 2. Two more of the best horror films of all time in my opinion.
The James Bond Collection. I love James Bond films, despite the obvious misogyny of the earlier ones, and I love being able to dip into them whenever I want.
Sense and Sensibility. I don't only love horror, and Emma Thompson's version of this Austen novel is a classic.
A jar of pork crackling from Snaffling Pig. Well, I don't like popcorn, and I'll need something to snack on during the films. Which also leads to...
A mini fridge. So that you don't have to pause the film to go and get a drink.
Happy Holidays to you all!
