Sequestered

I feel like one of those sick people in a movie where a virulent plague is sweeping the land. I've been practically quarantined in my own house. The Other Half insists I stay in bed and rest while doing her best to fill me with juice and pharmaceuticals. I have accomplished nothing all day. Not a damn thing. Well, I did watch some movies. Being sick allows me the opportunity to peruse the DVD collection and view some favorites as well as films I have never seen before. So today I, while awake and lucid, watched Tarantula from 1955 with the ass-kicking John Agar and gorgeous Mara Corday. Then I was in the mood for some European fare, so I watched the 1973 Italian giallo film Seven Deaths in the Cat's Eye and wrapped things up with the joint Italian/Spanish zombie film (but set in the UK) Let Sleeping Corpses Lie from 1974 (aka The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue). Giant man-eating spiders, mysterious murders in a Gothic castle and hordes of the gut-munching living dead. Yes, this is how I relax. Doesn't everyone?

Ahhh, what a way to relax. A horror movie fest. And did someone say Gothic castle? Hope you're feeling heaps better soon.

I can't even find those movies for sale. I envy you, but not for your sickness.

"Gut-munching living dead" almost sounds...appealing. I hope it made you feel better and you're up and at'em by now!

Jamie, each of those movies is readily available on Amazon, though "Tarantuala" is part of a set and cannot be obtained in a stand alone edition.
