After the pumpkins comes the tofurkey!

Mick says after Halloween we have to take a break from horror movies. I say, what kind of theme can we invent for Thanksgiving? So I'm trying to cram in a lot of scurry today. Bravo has two versions of their scurry movie countdown. Since they haven't done one for awhile I thought I would throw some things out there. So here are...
Alison's Scurry Moments.

Donnie Darko: Anytime the satanic bunny appears on the screen. I think his name is Frank. Frank the Satanic Bunny! You can't make this stuff up! Well, I mean, they did, but you know.
The Descent: This is a toss-up between the first moment you see The Cave Dwellers and when you think Sarah is maybe dead but suddenly emerges from the pool of blood. (Good metal band name: Pool of Blood.)
The Strangers: Shiz really starts to go down when the record player suddenly skips. Bonus points for having a record player.
The Lake House: When Sandra Bullock is racing to send the last letter and you're not sure if she's going to make it in time--that freaks me out. I mean, what if she doesn't make it? The whole thing would be screwed! I'm not kidding. You think I'm kidding?
Lost: Desmond has a small amount of time to get ahold of Penny on Christmas Eve. He showed up at her house years ago and told her she has to answer the phone in the future. The phone is ringing and ringing. What if she doesn't answer? I could have peed my pants I was so scurred. This is why I watch that show while clutching on to a blanket.
Gilmore Girls: When Kirk and Luke appear before the Town Elders in the sauna, Kirk is wearing only a towel. And his stomach--oh god it's scurry. It seriously looks like dude's stomach in Alien before the creature pops out. Actually an alien inhabitting Kirk's body would explain quite a bit, now that I think about it...

Oh my god I'm so glad someone else finally noticed Kirk's stomach!! I've been bringing it up since I started watching and no one else noticed!

Apparently, according to Traci, he had some condition called "floppy baby syndrome." I really wish I was kidding. I'm laughing as I type that. Floppy. Baby. Syndrome. Talk about great band names.
