The Glorious Train Wreck Mom

This is a safe space for all train wrecks. Except here, we don't give you a puppy and a latte. We give you sarcasm and humor.

Welcome aboard, train wreck.

Shockingly, I do more than just read and drink coffee. A long time ago in a galaxy far far away I worked in a video store. Not like Blockbuster. God no. More like Randall from Clerks. It was small and we only ever had one or two copies of new releases. It was amazing. And the bonus was being able to watch all the movies I wanted. And a lot of times I didn’t have to worry about little kids coming in because no one was coming in. So I popped the tapes in the VCR and watched Johnny, Ash, Ripley, Freddy, Michael, and Jason. It was glorious and I miss it.

If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment, share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen. I will link the movies and where you can buy them. When you use my links to buy, I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. This helps me buy more books to read and review. And coffee and wine for the rest of my time that isn’t reading. So, thank you.

This is by no means a top ten or a comprehensive list. But it is a good list for when the kids are sleeping over at a friend’s house or at Grandma’s. I’ll post a more family friendly list later.

    1. Candyman messed me up for a while. Like, I didn’t even want to look at the video case cover.

        I agree with you there! It gave me nightmares! But to be fair.. I saw it for the first time when I was around eight. That and Congo. *shudders*


    2. The Exorcist will always be at the top of my list. Along with 28 days later.

        The Exorcist is completely understandable.
        And, wow, I haven’t thought of 28 Days Later in a long time.. That was such a freaky movie!
