—J.J. Abrams, admitting that all that secrecy surrounding the Cumbervillain was maaaaaaybe a bit much. But it’s the studio’s fault, because who do you think he is? An A-list director who has some degree of control over these things and is also notoriously obsessed with secrecy? Pssht. BRB, eyerolling into the final frontier. (via themarysue)
Yeah, it couldn’t possibly be his decision… Oh no… That would mean he makes mistakes…
Yes, dear. Women “sell horror to the masses” by being pretty slabs of meat and perpetual victims.
I mean, we have a lot of those.
Actually I think the better horror films tend to have female characters who aren’t chainsaw fodder (in which I include The Ring/Ringu, Alien, The Descent, Hannibal, and The Shining—I’ve always thought of Wendy as the protagonist).
Obviously in most crap-tier horror films female characters are there to scream and run, but even the ones that are sort of in-the-middle tend to have women who do some of their own investigating/ghostbusting. I’ve kind of found horror to be a weird unlikely genre haven, in that respect.
But I mean if you’re mostly talking about antagonists then I got nothing.
Yeah, I def agree. And that’s the thing, it’s the sheer amount of shit-tier horror that makes the good ones stand out. That’s what I meant when I said that we have “a lot of those”.
But my initial post was about female antagonists, which are incredibly rare, and even rarer well-written. And when they are, they are usually written by women (surprise).
I’m kind of tired of watching an hour and a half of a female vctim/protagonist getting strung along and struggling and bleeding and I’d really like the state of game to change tbh. As much as it’s fun to watch the SURVIVAL and CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, it would be nice to put the power and fear in different hands for once.

Ezekiel was good, he had just some problems with gravity, but…

EVERYONE STOP USING “HELLA” WRONG
I HAVE HAD CONVERSATIONS ABOUT ‘HELLA’ LONGER THAN AN EPISODE OF YOUR FAVORITE SHOW LET ME BREAK IT DOWN FURTHER
'HELLA' HAS ITS ROOTS AS A CONTRACTION OF 'A HELL OF A', LIKE “WE HAD A HELL OF A GOOD TIME” BECOMING “WE HAD A HELLA GOOD TIME”
HOWEVER IF YOU WERE TO SAY “THE STORE HAS A HELL OF A LOT OF CLOTHES” YOU DON’T SAY “THE STORE HAS HELLA LOT OF CLOTHES” BECAUSE IN THIS INCARNATION HELLA IS A QUANTIFIER AND SAYING ‘HELLA LOT OF’ MAKES AS MUCH SENSE AS ‘MUCH LOT OF’
IT’S ALSO VERY CONTEXT DEPENDENT IN THAT IT’S BEST USED IN A CLAUSE THAT’S NOT INTERROGATIVE IE A SENTENCE OR STATEMENT THAT’S NOT ASKING A THING
SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA PEOPLE WILL LOOK AT YOU WEIRD FOR SAYING ‘WHERE ARE THE HELLA BUSES’ BUT GENERALLY NOT BAT AN EYE IF YOU SAY ‘GOD DAMN THERE’S USUALLY HELLA BUSES WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY’
SOURCE: MY FAMILY HAS LIVED IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA FOR A HELLA LONG TIME AND BY THAT I MEAN OVER A CENTURY
LITERALLY EVERY WORD IS MADE UP AND THERE ISN’T A SINGLE LANGUAGE THAT HASN’T EVOLVED SINCE ITS CREATION I THINK ALL Y’ALL NEEDA CALM THE FUCK DOWN ABOUT WORDS LIKE “HELLA” AND “LITERALLY” YOU STUPID PIECES OF SHIT
WORDS HAVE MEANINGS YOU FUCKWEASEL AND YOU CAN’T JUST PICK AND CHOOSE NEW DEFINITIONS AND GET MAD WHEN NOBODY KNOWS WHAT THEY FUCK YOU’RE SAYING
IF SOMEONE ASKS ME HOW MY DAY WAS I CAN’T JUST SAY ‘ABSOLUTE GRAPE’
THE EVOLUTION OF LANGUAGE, I CAN’T CALL MY SISTER A SLUT FOR HAVING A MESSY ROOM, WHEN I SAY I’M GAY I DON’T MEAN HAPPY AND MOST OF THE TIME HELLA IS USED PROPERLY.
EVERYONE CALM DOWN IT’S GONNA BE OKAY. IT GETS BETTER
I WILL TAKE IT
I WILL TAKE THE RING TO MORDOR
I really wanna see my otp…
