ITS CINEMA SUNDAY BUT ALSO SUPERBOWL SUNDAY AND I’M PUMPED! Y’all cheering for the Pats or Seahawks? (Tweet me and let me know! @thenikkisin) So naturally I had to choose a film with some sort of sports theme, I stuck with a favourite stereotype for horror: JOCKS. This week’s pick is “Varsity Blood”. #GoWildCats
Gimme an M! Gimme a U! Gimme an R! Gimme a D! Gimme an E! Gimme another R! What does that spell? MURDER!
A group of stereotypical jocks, and cheerleaders head to a spooky Halloween party at a farm (if i didn’t have you at this, then I don’t know what you want from a High School slasher ok), and are targeted and killed by a vicious killer disguised as their very own mascot! Brilliant.
Fun fact: The film features a Canadian horror actress Debbie Rochon who nabbed #8 in Playboy’s top 50 Sexiest Scream Queen list.
The film got some pretty harsh reviews, but I actually really liked it. It sort of has a Scream (the first one) vibe to it. And the mascot is creepy, and borderline racist (which I could do without tbh). If I had a fear of people in costumes I would probably cry most of the film.

Jessica Simpson, because what else is she really doing?
