My Top Horror Films From Each Decade - 1980s to 1990s.
1). Possession (1981). Director: Andrzej Zulawski
2). An American Werewolf in London (1981). Director: John Landis.
If you only view it for Rick Baker's special effects, that's enough. The main transformation scene is 👌🏽.
3). The Thing (1982). Director: John Carpenter.
The ultimate cult horror classic. I'm a huge fan of Carpenter, a multi-talented film-maker. He had to be super inventive especially in the early part of his career. Not only did he direct his own films but he composed the music, wrote and produced for many of them. Kudos to his brilliance. 'The Thing' grips you and holds on to you till the very thrilling end. Paranoia and suspicion feeds into a group of isolated individuals' mounting fears as they are faced with the possibility that an unknown terror could be among them.
4). Tenebrae (1982). Director: Dario Argento
'Suspiria' may be Dario Argento's best known film and one that I admire greatly but 'Tenebrae' has to be his most shocking and another favourite of mine from his body of work. A blend of slasher thriller meets horror. It's seedy, very aggressive and not as weirdly wonderful as some of his other gialli films but certainly has it's attractions. And of course Argento does not let you down with his use of colours.
5). Hellraiser (1987). Director: Clive Barker.
1). Jacob's Ladder (1990). Director: Adrian Lyne.
2). The People Under the Stairs (1991). Director: Wes Craven
3). In the Mouth of Madness (1994). Director: John Carpenter.
4). Event Horizon (1997). Director: Paul W S Anderson.
It's very dark and disturbing in tone, nearly everyone dies aboard a space craft invaded by an evil presence. What's not to love?
5). Ringu aka Ring (1998). Director: Hideo Nakata.
The Japanese original. I remember watching this on Film 4 several years back when they were doing a season on foreign horrors. I happened to catch it by accident one evening whilst everyone was out. I watched helplessly fascinated and equal parts crazy scared. Let me tell you, I had to keep the lights switched on until the break of dawn.
Pound for pound one of the most disturbing horror movies of all time, it wouldn’t be October without a screening of #JacobsLadder . Tim Robbins, Danny Aiello and Elizabeth Pena star in Adrian Lyne’s haunting, nightmarish adaptation of Bruce Joel Rubin’s story of a Vietnam veteran who is haunted by more than just memories. At once terrifying and moving, you will not be the same after seeing this film. Add it to your Halloween playlist ASAP. http://indiepopcorn.fm/podcasts/jacobs-ladder-new-york-is-hell/
Wow Saretta... Marqus and I was looking for some signs from you just to confirm that we are doing things right throughout this entire process.... I'll take this picture as your sign of agreement. #Confirmation#JacobsLadder#MyAngel
When I'm focused, I can reach goals and move past them. I'm currently in a really good mindset. Focused. Forward. Moving on up the ladder, the Jacobs ladder 😆. Getting in the 900s (for 8min) has made me happy. It's nice to do something you thought you couldn't do. Proving yourself but for all the right reasons. Just do your best, that's all can you do. But to know when enough is enough is hard when you're all or nothing like me. But anyhow, I'm rolling with this Charlotte for as long as I can. I.e. It's Friday. Usually ultimate binge night. (Being too honest). I wanted to buy ice cream - even 'healthy ice cream' - & swim in it. Yuuuup, it's friday. Time to treat yourself. But no. Sticking with my jellies & uno carb killa (saviour!). .... Happy #friyay 😊👊🏻💯 ........ #smashyourgoals#aimhigh#focus#fridayfeeling#jacobsladder#pushyourself
People often ask me “what does your workout routine look like?”, but for me, I feel like having a “routine” is counter-intuitive. Yes, you need to be consistent. Yes, you need to follow some sort of workout structure - but what drives me physically is consistently challenging my body. In order for me to do this, I get the best results from constant variety and keeping my program evolving. I’ve never tried the Jacobs Ladder before but pushed as hard as I could and APPARENTLY burned 200 calories in 10 minutes, I was drenched after 5, but most importantly: it was really difficult. The moral of the story is: Don’t do what you’re used to, Outdo what you used to. (Ps: This is the closest you’ll ever get to me going rock climbing @nicole_980 😝)
(Pps: Sorry(not sorry) for the Janet Jackson nip slip)

I don't watch a lot of horror films. But doing a few horror film reviews for #halloween season. Watched #jacobsladder for the first time in probably 25 years. Great supernatural horror. Although I don't love the casting of Tim Robbins as the main character all that much, it doesn't mean he didn't do a good job. But love this film because of the hell scenes. Scariest version of hell for me would be the state hospital asylum bloodbath scene from this film that was brilliant. Wicked, frightening, and lonely place. Plus New York City in the 1970's kind of looked like hell at times.
If you've never been to Gilman Street, it's an awesome, dingy, landmark punk club that is smaller than your one bedroom apartment. If you've never seen Crash Worship, they had three drummers, one noise guy, and two people that dressed up in crazy costumes and screamed/chanted while their cult of followers had orgies, poured wine on everyone, blew shit up, and lit fires. I knew none of this going in. First memory of this show was of watching Ubzub thinking "I'm REALLY glad i didn't take any acid tonight." My next memory was Crash Worship playing, the room was full of real smoke and fake smoke, red lights and strobe lights, all i could see were these Jacob's Ladder-esque nightmare shadows as i was up on a chair, against the wall, knowing that none of this was legal and that i might die. I finally went up to the front of the stage for a bit and when i went to go back to my safety perch i almost fell backwards in to a full blown orgy. That was a first... and last. The club finally just turned on the lights and cut the power to the stage, but when 95% of your act is tribal drumming, screaming, and indoor fireworks, you don't necessarily need power, so the band lit a fire in the middle of the room, put their drums around it, and kept going. That was my first Crash Worship experience, and life has been boring ever since.

When I do cardio, I make sure it’s high intensity interval training, or HIIT. 🍑I like to mix it up, and lately I’ve been having a love hate relationship with Jacob’s Ladder. I love it because it gets the job done and I can challenge myself, I hate it because it burns while doing it, but that’s another reason to love it. 🍑I’ll do 30 seconds of my hardest and fastest effort, then take a 30 second rest. As time goes on I may take a minute rest. I do 5-6 sessions of 30 seconds and that’s enough for me.
