Perched high above downtown Brea, an eerie green glow can be seen cloaked in a canopy of mossy leaves and mist. To a keen ear, the spooky soundtrack that trickles out to the street below can be followed a la Toucan Sam style to a horrific oasis. This is the Sinister Pointe Spirit Lounge. The Nun from The Conjuring universe serves holy water from behind the bar and sprays you down with it. A decrepit butler by the name of Grimsby shuffles about, sweeping and dusting table tops, cobwebs and even patrons.

It’s maximum melting weather for us baby vamps, but not to worry… here’s an array of climate controlled activities (many involving darkened theaters), to keep the spooky spirit alive all summer long. Your humble Horrorgirl is LA based, so aside from nationwide movie release dates… this list is tailored for you SoCal Creeps:
Alright, goo goo mucks…. Lots of questions about the I Like Scary Movies Experience coming in! The pictures I was posting on my story are from this, Click here to get your tickets on their website. No, it’s not a haunt (no scare actors, nobody popping out to make you crap your pants. Although I did get very startled once, and jumped far enough to give my friends a good laugh). Yes, it’s super cool. Essentially an immersive art installation based on five iconic films. It’s a lot of fun even if you’re just a casual fan. I was probably the biggest horror nerd in our group, but safe to say everyone was enjoying it as much as I was. Heads up: parking around the venue at night time sucks, unless you’re lucky and score a close meter (which we miraculously managed) but the El Rey is right across the street and has $10 valet parking. Scroll down for pictures from the experience, buuuut if you’re in LA and haven’t checked it out… maybe don’t look at the pictures yet, don’t spoil it and surprise yourself when you get there. If you’re not in LA or if you’re not gonna go, orrr if you’re on the fence, then feel free to scroll down and check out some of the pics. Also putting together a video, but that will be short because I didn’t format my card and ran out of space!
What We Do in the Shadows was by far my favorite movie of 2014. I show it to anyone I can, because it’s brilliant and amazing and feels like it still hasn’t fully gotten the recognition it deserves on a wider scale. But then when you meet someone who can quote it with you, I guess it’s sort of like being in a cool little club. But I digress…. the film has now been made into a SERIES, and is premiering March 27th on FX. This time, the documentary crew will be following three vampires in New York, so we’ve got new characters and a new cast but original creators Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are still behind this which makes me pretty confident it will be nothing short of fucking brilliant and maybe even my new favorite show.
The countdown to weekly Joe Bob is coming down to the final wire… weekly does star THIS FRIDAY, March 29th on Shudder. Can’t wait to partake in all the drive-in goodness!

The most exciting things happening in horror this week (according to one very specific HorrorGirl):
Your most humble HorrorGirl is presently on a gig that requires being away for most of the week. This translates to less horror viewing and waaaay less horror related event attendances. So, do me a favor. Use this calendar to let me live vicariously through you until I’m back at it full force. And if you tell me about your experience attending one of these events, I’m sure it will help to soothe some of the aching in this little black heart. Missing all you creeps immensely.
