Happy National Eat Before Shopping Day! – Film Suggestions To Watch During Thanksgiving

 photo TG2_zpstiduchv7jpg

As “National Eat Before Shopping Day”
approaches (can we really call it Thanksgiving anymore?), I thought I would put
out a list of films to watch, with titles that would associate with the theme
of the day in some way.

Although it would have been easy to
list movies about cannibalism for each selection, I think I managed to steer
away from that path a touch. Maybe I’ll do that next year.

many hiding places there really are in his house. But are there enough to hide
another person, a strange parasite of living space? Or is Félix really going
insane?
