Today's Horror Choices 05/18/16 - The Abominable Dirty Dishes 3D

May 18th is a difficult day for writing this column, as there aren't many offbeat or humorous holidays to work with. Even the ones that I found were kind of... boring. So, some of these may be a bit of a stretch, but...

Today is National No Dirty Dishes Day. Celebrate in style by binge-watching the misadventures of the cleanest killer of all time, Dexter. I thought about Hannibal as well, being that he eats people and all, but I have only seen the movies and not the TV show, and he doesn't strike me as the type to use a lot of paper plates.
It's also National Visit Your Relatives Day. I was hesitant to use this holiday because I just highlighted the International Day of Families the other day. How can we make this selection different? Well, most of us would gladly watch The Texas Chainsaw Massacre any day of the year. But how often to we take the time to remember Texas Chainsaw 3D?

No, c'mon, just hear me out....

Okay, so it's not the best Texas Chainsaw. It's not even in the top 4. But it is appropriate to this day, as the main character travels from far away to meet the family she never knew she had. The movie itself is a dumpster, but one that might be worth diving through if only once a year, just to remind yourself what went wrong - and what went surprisingly right. Another option would be Psycho, in which a woman visits her sister's new home without even knowing it.

Finally, today is the 45th anniversary of The Abominable Dr. Phibes. Take this golden opportunity to finally watch the movie along with its sequel, Dr. Phibes Rides Again. I haven't seen either, and sadly I have to work today, but this will definitely been on my post-midnight schedule.
