My Top 10 Horror Movie Survival Items

1

 

It’s that crazy time of the year again… Halloween!

Halloween brings so much joy to me every year as it means horror films galore. Whether it’s dreadfully awful or pretty decent enough to make me jump a few times, being a gore film fan, I simply couldn’t ask for more.

This year, Man Crates had challenged me to come up with the tools that I would need to survive all the way to the end of a horror movie. Sounds simple right? It’s actually much more difficult when thinking about it because of the different types of horror films and the different enemies you could encounter… Zombies, Aliens, Vampires, Werewolves, Psychopaths and so on. Based on this, I was inspired to post my Top 10 items to survive across all horror films.

Man Crates is an awesome new company that specializes in unique gifts for men (although I’d be sure to get one for myself as I’m that type of girl). The themed gifts basically arrive in a crate that need to be opened with an actual crowbar! How cool is that? You can grasp an idea of the themed crates for men here.

1. A massive knife (e.g machete)

2. Iodine tablets for water sterilisation

4. Torch

5. Rope

6. High energy foods (e.g energy drinks and bars)

7. Bolt Cutters (to cut through locks and everything else)

8. Matches

EMO’s Top 20 Films of 2014

As the curtain closes on 2014 and we enter a new, exciting year of film, it’s about time I got going with a ‘Top 20 Films of 2014’ list. I honestly wanted to just keep it nice and simple with a top 10, however, after looking back at what my eyes had devoured over the past 365 days, I felt the need to give credit to those that not only impressed me, but what I really enjoyed. Whether it was due to the fact that a franchise had just begun or was coming to a close, or the grand old superhero summer flicks that dominated the box office sales, my top 20 consists of the big blockbusters, a few rom-coms (which definitly deserved a spot seeing as the best rom-coms came from the late 90’s/early 2000’s) and a few flicks which impressed me due to the fact that I had no clue what I was in for. Here’s my top 20…

20. Fury

19. A Walk Among The Tombstones

18. Begin Again

17. Divergent

16. The Grand Budapest Hotel

15. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones
