It’s Rocktober Here At QRE

by Garv on October 10, 2013

We get a lot of questions here at the QRE offices, and the main one among them is this:

“Jeff, why do you guys stop posting in the spring then return in the fall?”

My reply to this comes in two parts. The first part is, “Who’s Jeff?”

The second is that we’re like the swallows that return each year to Capistrano, except pretty much backwards. And we don’t fly. I mean, we’re not birds. Let’s not get silly.

Each year when the weather starts to cool down we’re back, and that’s because it’s our favorite month – Rocktober. Now you normal folk might call it October, but we don’t – we call it Rocktober, because for us October rocks! So we combine the two to get Rocktober. It’s kind of a play on words. I think you get it.

You get it, right?

Anyway, it’s an awesome month because Halloween is coming up! That’s the one day a year that adults are allowed to dress up and wreak havoc on unsuspec pretend they’re someone else. Got a job you hate? Guess what? You can be Luke Skywalker for the day! Don’t like living with your roommate? You can be Dick Tracy and not have to deal with them! It’s the perfect getaway, if at least for a few hours.

In the spirit of Halloween, just as we did last year, we’re going to be having some contests. Some of you have already entered by suggesting names for Tony’s baby (coming in 2014!). The rest of you – keep an eye out, because the drawings start soon!

Here’s what we’ve got:

The AwakeningThe Awakening

In 1921, England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the ‘missing’ begin to show themselves.

 

The Texas Chainsaw MassacreThe Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003 Version)

After picking up a traumatized young hitchhiker, five friends find themselves stalked and hunted by a deformed chainsaw-wielding killer and his family of equally psychopathic killers.

 

Jeepers CreepersJeepers Creepers & Jeepers Creepers 2

Part 1: A brother and sister driving home for spring break encounter a flesh-eating creature in the isolated countryside that is on the last day of its ritualistic eating spree.

Part 2:┬áSet a few days after the original, a championship basketball team’s bus is attacked by The Creeper, the winged, flesh-eating terror, on the last day of his 23-day feeding frenzy.

 

The ProphecyThe Prophecy – The Complete Collection

I wasn’t even aware there were 5 movies in this series, but here they all are in all their Christopher Walkenish glory.

The angel Gabriel comes to Earth to collect a soul which will end the stalemated war in Heaven, and only a former priest and a little girl can stop him.

 

So keep an eye on the Facebook page – we’ll have plenty of Halloween-y goodness coming your way very soon.

Happy Rocktober!
