Today's Horror Choices 05/15/16 - They Call Her "Big Mama"

Today is Dinosaur Day. If you're one of those people who doesn't consider Jurassic Park a horror movie... well, you're wrong. That said, if you prefer something a little schlockier, Roger Corman's Carnosaur trilogy is good clean fun, while 1990's A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell brings the boobs. If you're looking for something with a bit more pedigree, any Godzilla movie will do.

Absolutely Terrifying.

Today is also International Day of Families. Once again, there are a number of ways to come at this. There's no shortage of fascinating families in the horror genre. Obviously Texas Chainsaw Massacre comes to mind. Going along with the hillbilly subtheme, one could screen American Gothic, Mother's Day or People Under the Stairs. If you're in the mood for something more serious, try Last House on the Left or The Shining. On a more international note, there's The Loved Ones and Mum & Dad, both equal parts disturbing and darkly humorous. Let's not forget the delightfully lowbrow humor of Seed of Chucky and Head of the Family. Oh, and speaking of guilty pleasures, there's no family drama quite like Repo: The Genetic Opera.
