So, with him home and so horribly crashed last week, he watched a lot of movies on TV. With Halloween approaching, a bunch of channels were showing back-to-back horror movies, so he watched a bunch of those and scared himself! I'll try to remember some of the movies he watched (I was in the room to keep him company but trying to get some tiny bit of work done!):
- FX channel was showing non-stop scary movies last week. I don't remember all the titles - some were just slasher films. Jamie watched Perfect Stranger with Halle Berry, a good thriller that Ken and I had watched before with a great twist at the end.
- I came home from Craig's soccer game to find Jamie totally freaked out after watching a TV series, American Horror Stories, that he said was really scary. He swore he wouldn't watch it again but then amended that the next day to say, "only during the day when someone else is home!"
- He wanted me to watch Shutter with him, a spooky ghost story he'd seen before and really liked, about a newlywed couple who move to Japan and start seeing ghosts. He was right - it was good. I prefer ghost stories to slasher/horror-type movies.
- As a family, we watched some more episodes of our favorites on DVD, Bones and The Big Bang Theory. By evening, Jamie was too wiped out for a full-length movie.
