Wish me happy watching!

So, like Pi is put up at her brother's place and after my daily dose of Big Boss, I still am not sleepy enough, to try and kill an extra couple of hours. Thanks to a generous office colleague, I have laid my hands on a couple hundred of good movies and every night, when am lounging all alone on the sofa with the lights turned out, am spoilt for choices.

For a while, comedy and animation was my choice (You rock my Kung Fuing Panda!). But the current genre thats literally keeping me awake is HORROR! Thankfully the last 3-4 movies have been top-notch. I started off with:

1408 starring John Cusack, which is about a man who specializes in rebuking paranormal phenomenons, checks into the fabled room 1408 in the Dolphin Hotel to confront genuine terror. Not bad I would say. Then,

Silent Hill
starring Radha Mitchell, which is based on a best selling game of the same name by Konami. It is about a woman who goes to this creepy ash-raining town called as Silent Hill in search of her daughter's ailment. Pretty gripping scary stuff every once in a while too. But the one that rules the roost for me is:

The Descent
which is about a bunch of women who go on an undiscovered cave exploration trip when things turn out horribly wrong! I am not lying, I genuinely felt their claustrophobia for a while, while watching the movie. As an honor to them, this will adorn my desktop for a while :)

Some gone, so many more to watch! I have decided that "The Mist" based on a book by Stephen King, might just be the next movie which gets the honor of keeping me awake till the wee hours of the night. So wish me spooky err... happy watching then!
