What movies for the Thanksgiving holiday?

Recommended Posts

OddJack

Alright. We all had a shot at helping to compile a list of flicks for Hallow's Eve.

 

So, what about now? :!:

 

We approach Thanksgiving. Is it time to put Cthulhu and horror aside? :?: I say no. NO!!! :evil:

 

So what movie would you suggest for people for a dark and troubling time of thanks (As per U.S. and Canada...what the heck is their for the Brits anyway...Boxing Day? :wink: Just joshing ya.)?

 

Here is one. The Wickerman. It's about the harvest, right?

 

Then again, for harvesting, how about Invasion of the Body Snatchers? :P Or one of those Children of the Corn films?

 

 

So, what would you suggest? :?

How about that 'game hen' scene from "Eraserhead"? :wink:

If such things appeal to you, watch the scene in Monty Python's Meaning of Life where the immensely fat Mr. Creosote waddles into a restaurant, eats everything in sight (vomiting occasionally to make room for more) and then, when offered a "wafer-thin" after dinner mint by the waiter, he EXPLODES. To me, that's what thanksgiving is all about...eating yourself into a stupor...

The Sleepy Hollow film that Burton

worked on is a delightful example of

horror. I used it to show the

relative tech-level (minus the guns)

to some of my Ravenloft BRP players.

 

I'm not sure if this qualifies as horror,

but I think Blade Runner would work

well during the nights where the

sky is cloudy and dark.

Our (my holiday fav's) are

 

Cannibal Holocost

Dawn of the Dead

The Beyond

Jaws

 

 

Sort of flesh eating gorge-fest-appropriate I think.

 

The reality of what is watched is usually quite different though....Both Lord of the Rings flicks seem quite appropriate for some reason.

 

Maybe Harry Pooter...er I mean Potter

 

I've always wondered if Harry is related to the Potters of Dunwich? HUm??

 

Harry? Dunwich? Cousin Wilbur? Son of...? Super magickal? :?:

Why the popularity of zombie and canibal motifs?

Something to do with the way we'll be eating like

maniacs over this and till the festive season be over?

 

mmm... chocolate logs, mini kievs... must eat more!

You should see the average American family around the traditional holiday table. :) SCAREY! :twisted: A giant dead bird, strange mushed foods. Everyone stabbing and grabbing for it all, and as it flies around (and the cranberries, oh god, the cranberries).

 

...then after the gluttonous massacre, the shambling blouted half-conscious masses amble off moaning and groaning, strange smells eminating from them all (after they are done fighting for the special magical bone).

 

Yes, Thanksgiving is one of the dark blights on Americana...and then we have pie. :twisted:

Hey, we're just living in the image of such role-models as Cthulhu (devour 1d3 investigators per round, anyone?) and the Tcho-Tcho peoples (what? You don't eat the "White Pork Special" at YOUR Thanksgiving?)
