Today's Horror Choices 09/13/16 - "Sexy 'Do, Where Are You?"

September 13th is Bald is Beautiful Day. This could be a good opportunity to take in a Hitchcock marathon, or perhaps See No Evil or The Hills Have Eyes, or a nice Friday the 13th or Hellraiser in honor of their hairless antagonists. Come to think of it, Freddy Krueger is kinda bald too, and it just so happens to be the 25th anniversary of Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare. If you prefer something a little more trippy, there's always Natural Born Killers, which features a nice head-shaving scene. Come to think of it, there are a lot of bald people in horror...


Today is also National Defy Superstition Day. In honor of this celebration of cold, hard reason, smoke a few bong loads and take in an episode or 8 of the good old Saturday morning classic, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? I can't think of another TV show or movie that quite so effectively taught multiple generations that there's a rational explanation for everything, and that all there is to fear is fear itself. Just be sure to avoid those later films and incarnations that pitted Scooby and the gang against actual supernatural forces, like Scooby-Doo on Zombie Islaand. While they may be wildly entertaining, it wouldn't really be in the spirit of the holiday.

Also, this...

Finally, today is Positive Thinking Day, so just watch Leprechaun in the Hood. Just do it.
