Genre Favorites Blogfest

Alex J. Cavanaugh's The Genre Blogfest.

In this blogfest I need to talk about my favorite Genre of Movie, Book and Music.  Plus my guilty pleasure.

So here we go!

My favorite is still Horror.  I love all that scary stuff. I do enjoy other movies, but horror is my go to.

I would have to say Classic metal or even classic rock.  I still love to listen to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Dio.  My wife accuses me of living in the past, I prefer to think of it that my tastes are so refined that I know exactly what I want.

Again, gotta say horror, but I enjoy the Modern Supernatural genre as well.  The ones where it's all teh same creatures as horror, but living in the world of today.  Things like The Dresden Files.  I do still enjoy fantasy.

Guilty Pleasure
This is a hard one.  I have so many!! Well, so many that others might call guilty, I don't feel any guilt in these.
But to narrow it down to one...well that can only be my love for really, really bad movies.  I am not talking your average B or C movie, I am talking about Z grade, unfit for human consumption.  Things they might have considered doing on MST3k, but were to bad.

What do you enjoy?

See what everyone else is doing!

These seem like fitting choices for the guy who's hosting the Monstrous Monday blogfest - however are you going to choose just one monster?

Timothy S. Brannan said...

Simple. I will cheat! ;)
I am going to post a monster every Monday in October. That gives me five. Still a tough choice though.

Intense to be sure...and interesting too...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Too bad for MST3K? That is bad!
Thanks for participating in my blogfest. Look forward to yours.

Your guilty pleasure cracked me up. I'm almost dying to know examples of bad movies you many to choose from.

RaveAir said...

Z category movies are incredible! I love some of them too!

Annalisa Crawford said...

Music will always be relevant - it's not living in the past, it's appreciating the past!

S. L. Hennessy said...

Haha, I love bad movies too. Especially of the sci-fi persuasion (of which there are many). Like Wickerman. Ahh, so terrible. And yet, so wonderful.

Miranda Hardy said...

Excellent choices! I think the really bad movies sometimes fall into the comedy section.

Golden Eagle said...

Bad films can be very amusing to watch.

Heather Murphy said...

You can't beat your music choices with the classics

Arlee Bird said...

Led Zep is timeless--I don't think their music will ever grow old. I enjoy a good really bad movie sometimes. Gotta waste time sometimes.

I like horror films. Got hooked on them when I started reading Fangoria years ago. The special effects and makeup fascinated me.

I'm always up for some good horror, looking forward to American Horror Story coming back to TV soon!
