I was in my neighborhood Walgreens a few minutes ago, buying much more ice cream than I have any business buying and I was looking at their cheap DVD racks. Walgreens likes to sell horrible movies for like, two dollars for some reason, and I noticed some crappy slasher movie titled "The Frightening".
Jesus Christ, Hack Horror Movie Writers of America, do you have any Goddamn respect for yourselves at all?
Seriously, is that title supposed to chill me or something? Is it supposed to be self fulfilling prophecy? Power of positive thinking? Really, I can smell your desperation when you choose to title your film with a description of the emotional state it will allegedly evoke in me.
I'm almost finished with the first draft of my current opus, following closely on the heels of my own foray into horror writing, "Gods of the Earth". That was the darkest thing I've ever written, this one is shaping up to be the lightest thing I've ever written. I've been a little worried about it at times, I don't want it to be *too* light, actually I don't mind light, but I don't want it to be slight. That is I want it to be about something. In an odd way it's become about it's own lightness. Hopefully it's going to be a fun romantic comedy that will bring joy to people's hearts.
I'm going to call it "The Amusing".
