90's Kids Edition - Read on for our watchlist!
We've put together 4 Double Features and will meetup on Zoom on Oct. 25th to knit and discuss.
If you grew up in the 90's, you maybe watched some of these when you were way too young and it maybe messed you up a little bit but it also made you who you are today (A weirdo). Wait for your parents/children to fall asleep, grab some Pixy Stix, a can of Surge and pop in that VHS for some 90's nostalgia!
You won't find a lot of 90's horror films on Best Of lists and the decade conjures visions of grungy low-budgets, overwrought teen angst, cheesy special effects, a LOT of belly buttons, old tropes and outdated social clichés, but its influence on modern horror survives today. We think these films are worth a rewatch or first time viewing.
Watch at your own pace starting October 1st. Come ready to discuss with your fan/hate mail and your current spooky finished objects or works in progress, October 25th at 8pm on Zoom. An accompanying pattern suggestion list can be found on Ravelry here.
