Winter is the perfect time to enjoy horror movies. Nights are longer, and days are darker. During this time of year, some horror fans are hard pressed to find something to keep them going until warmer weather is on the horizon.
Not all fans want to be reminded that it was once summery, breezy and warm. Watching Jason Voorhees slay errant teenagers during balmy nights at Crystal Lake doesn't help when fans are huddled up by the fireplace, listening to old man winter howl outside, making your cheerful hot cocoa lukewarm before the marshmallows have had a chance to melt.
It almost seems insulting, watching teens rush about Freddy Krueger's boiler room, sweating while viewers are huddled on the couch underneath a granny quilt just to stay warm.
Instead, we have put together movies where the protagonists are struggling with the same snow, cold temperatures and misery that viewers are dealing with, given the 'polar vortex' and sub zero temperatures that had recently gripped the entire continent.
On weekends or evenings when you're forced to eat the last of the Christmas leftovers, or hamburger stew because it's hot and cheap, Lexington Horror Movie Examiner has put together some horror movies to watch to break up the monotony of winter re-runs until "The Walking Dead" resumes.
Although it has warmed up, it IS only January, viewers, when next the cold front hits, be ready with these movies, a warm blanket and some blood-red velvet hot cocoa to put you in the mood for some wintry chills down your spine.
