For the month of October I’ve dubbed it Scaretober in which I will be blogging every day in October. No, it’s not just random blogs in October but specifically scary movies movies. I’m definitely not one of those girls that enjoys scary movies by any means in fact this is a HUGE challenge for me since I’m such a wimp when it comes down to it. Some of the movies reviewed will be super scary and others will just be 90’s cheesy scary compared to today’s standards. There will be a few days during this month that I will be putting up more than one posts, because sometimes you can’t hold any awesome back when it comes to the blog.
Today’s movie is Faces in a Crowd.

This movie was suggested to me by Netflix and now that I have read that secret article on the Netflix rating system actually works, I don’t trust Netflix anymore. Netflix, I’m on to you now…
Here’s the rundown on the movie:a woman named Anna seems to be living the life with a great job as a school teacher and a live-in boyfriend that works in corporate. One night after night out with friends she decides to walk home and catches the current serial killer of her town, Tearjerk Jack, in progress. He chases her down and she manages to get away by falling from the bridge into the water. Anna wakes up in the hospital several days later and discovers that even though she managed to escape a serial killer she can’t identify him because her fall gave her a brain disorder. The brain disorder causes people’s faces to change from one moment to the next, so she can’t seem to remember the killer’s face. Anna tries to return to life as she knew it before the accident, but her new disorder causes her a great deal of problems. The cop on the case takes an interest in Anna and even introduces her to his safe haven.
I will keep to my promise and not spoil this movie entirely. I found this movie creepy because in a way there is so much we do not know about the brain and so much we have yet to discover. A disease like Anna’s could happen to anyone. Other than finding the movie creepy on that aspect, I didn’t find it really scary. It was a bit unnerving when she was not able to recognize her own father, or her boyfriend. I recommend this movie and this is probably the only thriller that I’ve seen that has some romance in it 😉
I hope that you will keep following along with this Scaretober series to see what other movies I review. See you soon!
