a sunday kind of love #8

Happy Halloweekend

It Follows - This weekend we went to see David Robert Mitchell's independent horror film at the wonderful Hyde Park Picture House. This screening, which was in collaboration with Red Bull Music Academy, had its soundtrack (the work of  Disasterpeace) live scored by an orchestra, arranged by Emma Jane Thackray. It was a terrifying and truly immersive experience! The film is definitely well worth watching if you want an American high school-esque genre film that'll make you jump.

Horror films - I've never been particularly bothered about horror. Sure I've watched a couple of frightful flicks in my time, but they're never something I'd choose to watch aside from around this time of year. But, after the aforementioned screening, I've had a bit of a revelation, which is going to sound stupidly simple... Horror is one of the most transporting types of films you can get. Those films that chill you right to the bone, that bring you right to the edge of your seat, hand propelled to your mouth... They're transfixing and transformative, I want to watch more! Can anyone recommend any good ones?

Pumpkin Curry - We went to My Thai this weekend and I had their seasonal chicken pumpkin curry. I love pumpkins, and pumpkin carving, and pumpkin pie, and all things pumpkin. I've said this before and I'll say it again.

Donald Trump - This weekend I've been loving seeing the many, many Trump themed outfits people have been wearing! I wish I'd been prepared enough to copy Jemima Khan with this ensemble.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show - We're off to see this famous show tomorrow night at Leeds Grand Theatre! I can't wait... though I have no idea what to wear... I remember my Mum telling me about a performance of this she went to when she was in her twenties, and I can't help but think it's a bit of a rite of passage... Am I right? I'll be posting a review this week, but if you want to come along you can buy tickets here.

What have you been up to this Halloweekend?
