Sigh. I get one problem fixed on my laptop, and another one pops up. Now my computer won't recognize my camera. Which means I can't download photos. And photos, as we all know, are of VITAL IMPORTANCE to a daily fashion blog.
Fortunately, My Closet Should Not Be Scary (MCSNBS) is about TWO of my favorite topics - the other being scary stuff. And scary stuff doesn't need pictures. In fact, sometimes it's better not to see the horror. So, let's get spooky, y'all.
Raise your hand if you love IMDb.com. If you don't, what's wrong with you? It's the source of all knowledge - or at least, the knowledge that matters most - what scary movies are coming out when.
My favorite feature of IMDb.com is their Popular Movies By Genre pages (Super-easy to find on their IPhone app). Based on number of Internet hits received, the media gurus at IMDb list the top 50 movies by genre, including horror.
Some of the movies on the Horror Page are oldies-but-goodies - stuff you've probably already seen. For example, as I type, Alien is ranked at #21. And right above it at #20 is that travesty of movie which everyone should avoid and instead read the book which is EPIC in its awesomeness *breathes after run-on sentence*, The Shining. I kind of hate that movie. A lot. So did Stephen King, so I feel justified. Although I didn't like his mini-series either.
The Popular Movies page also includes movies that are coming soon, like Scream 4 (#5), Red State (#11), and Apollo 18 (#24) - all of which I'm trying to con my friends into seeing with me. And you'll find movies you need to rent NOW, like Severance (#41), Paranormal Activity 2 (#13), and Devil (#14). Really helps a sister out when she's staring blankly at the Red Box screen.
Another thing (or rather, things) I love about IMDb.com are the Plot Summaries, Synopsis, User Reviews, and External Reviews. With horror movies, I don't mind a spoiler or two. Especially if the spoiler is, "and then she got raped." Yeah. I don't truck with rape scenes in my horror movies... or any movie for that matter. It always feels gratuitous, and I don't need to see that shizz.
What Internet/App movie features do you guys use to suss out great horror (or other) films?
