I am not even going to go into the cluster fuck that is 2020. It’s been terrible, it’s been awful and my God my mental health is as good as yours…which I imagine looks a little like this:
So rest assured dear reader, I am not going to bore the living shit out of you by writing some deep and profound long-form post about how we can find inner peace during a shit storm. Maybe you can find inner peace in a shit storm, who knows – I certainly don’t but what Ms.pudding does know is that sometimes when it’s raining shit outside, you just need a break from it. Even if it’s a just break from the smell, and my gwad, haven’t you come to the right place for that. Distraction and disassociation is my bag baby, so you ready? Let’s go….
It’s October, therefore my lovely and ever-patient audience (Dad) this means two things – 2020 is nearly over – hu-fucking-rah and it’s….HALLOWEEN SEASON.
If you’re new here and just groaned at me mentioning Halloween… how on earth did you find yourself here*? Shoo, we do not want your wares here, oh no.
If you suddenly perked up at the near thought of the day celebrating the macabre, well my child, you have found a new home <3
So very top level with the news but I am building a new Witchy website which should be launching very shortly. I have just commited to a domain name and you’re all gonna be welcome to join my lil’ ‘digital coven’…so watch this space for the announcement. Whoop!
If you can’t wait until then (and why should you?!) please check out @bunnyscopes on Instagram or if you are a member of Soho works, come and visit me on the 29th October 2020 5pm onwards and get a lil Tarot reading from me in person 😉
And if you really can’t wait, here is the first out of my MONTH LONG ‘lists of things to watch over the Halloween’ season posts. Get in.
The Love Witch
You may never have seen it, you may never have heard of it but you for sure will have come across a meme from it. ‘The Love Witch’ is not only a homage to the horror films of the 60s, it’s also a feminist film full of beautiful technicolour and fabulous fashion. It’s a personal go-to of mine and, was the first film I brought to cheer myself during the breakdown of 2018. Lolz, and we thought that was a bad year…Such fun memories…
Where to find it
You can find it to rent or buy on amazon
The Company of Wolves
Angela Carter, you saucy minx. If you haven’t read her yet, do so immediately. If you’re a prude then maybe not so much but still give her a go. Either way, you’re in for a titillating time. Based on her sensual retelling of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ from her collection of short stories ‘The Bloody Chambers’ the film takes a feminist twist on the original story. It’s my favourite film. I think this and Labyrinth could be played on repeat and I would never, ever get tired of watching them. On that note, if you partial to men in tight trousers and cravats, and I AM, then there are a few of those near the end of the film. You can thank me later.
And before you moan ‘Bunnypudding, these are all stylish, feminist films… where is the agony and painful horror!’ no shit. The blog name literally has ‘bunny’ and ‘pudding’ in it. That’s the first give away, champion. I may swear like a fish wife and could win in a knife fight but damn I’d be wearing an haute-couture dress doing it if I could… *Glares at sugar daddy* Also, this is a list to take your mind away from….**gestures animatedly** 2020. So if you’re looking for deeply emotional kitchen sink dramas, this isn’t the list for you.
Now, If you’re looking for fucked up fantasy films with a side of horror, how much fun are you having right now, huh?!

Interview with the Vampire
As I know my audience, top-level description:
Hot historical male vampires in cravats being slightly homoerotic with each other
For the newbies:
The cinematic version of Ann Rices classic book about the several hundred-year old vampire Louis (or Sir Wallow a-lot as I like to call him) retelling his life in the modern-day to a journalist – thus the ‘interview’ part of the title. This film was a favourite of mine at 12 years old and its a favourite of mine at 112 years old and for exactly the same reasons my friends (See above top-level description) Starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Antonio Banderas complete with fangs and flowing locks, its just fabulous.
You can thank me later.

So what about you my Digital Coven? How you doing – been up to any adventures? If so, I want to know below and hey, if you have a film you’d think I like, make sure to pop them down below as well. We’re partial to breeches, boots and bosoms as well as cravats…so cheers!
* Based on my blog Analytics I currently rank for ‘historical porn’…so I am gonna make an educated guess here. Also, I apologise for the disappointment that the site didn’t match your desired search term. I recommend The Whores of Yore for those actually seeking historical pornography but if you’re seeking salacious films from 1980’s and back – alas, nothing here but if you do find the sie, by all means, share the link. No judgement here ya’ll.
