Okay so today I have compiled my Top Ten Horror movies!
I am a huge fan of scary movies, and even as a kid I was never scared of them! I love the feeling of being spooked!
10. The Strangers
This is one of the first movies to give me the chills in a long time. I never saw this in theaters because I thought it looked cheesy and dumb, like most horror movies these days are. I watched it one night on a movie channel at like, 3 in the morning. I was hooked: it is so freaky and awesome. I love the masks of the killers and how they just appear in the background of a shot. Scary!
9. High Tension
This is a great movie if you like lots of gore and violent killings..haha. It was pretty intense. It really is a good horror movie though, just don't be put off by the dubbing- it is a little poorly done. This one has got an awesome ending that you won't see coming!
8. Planet Terror
One of my favorite movies ever! It is so great and over the top. Plus, zombie movies are always so entertaining. Rose McGowan is a total badass in this. Her character Cherry Darling ( I totally use her name for my email address!) is gorgeous and has a gun for a leg- genius! I will forever want to be her for Halloween..I'm just not quite sure how to pull it off!
7. Friday the 13th
If you read my blog then I'm sure you have already read my post on the Scream movies. If not click here!
5. American Psycho
4. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
I need to admit- I listen to this soundtrack in my car AT LEAST twice a month. The songs are amazing! I can watch this movie a million times and never tire of it. Fun fact- I have been known to cry at the end when Dr. Frank-N-Furter dies! It is so sad when Rocky is carrying him up the tower! Wah!
3. House of 1000 Corpses
2. The Devils Rejects
Another Rob Zombie film! Another past Halloween Costume- Tom was Capt. Spaulding (the clown) and I was Baby Firefly. This is the sequel to House of 1000 Corpses and even though it has the same main characters, the story and design are completely different. This is definitely more real life then the first. The whole movie has a definite 70's theme to it. And the story is great. The ending of this movie is the best ending ever.
The movie that started it all. I truly believe that this movie paved the way for all horror movies. It was the first movie, in it's time, that scared the crap out of everyone. Michael Myers is a freaky ass character. He is completely void of all emotion and has no reason (that we know of in this movie) for any of the killings. He just stalks around and uses a huge butcher knife like a crazy freak! And I love how simple it is- no bloody, gory scenes. Plus, the clothing and styles are absolutely amazing!It is a tradition in my house to watch this movie on Halloween night. I can remember watching it when I was young, and my mother would cover my eyes at any scary/bloody parts. This movie will always remind me of the Halloween holiday.
and I have to throw this one on here because it is one of my favorite movies..
Definitely reminds me of my childhood! This is also a Halloween movie tradition!
I could keep going but I will keep it short. Any of you out there horror movie fans? What are your favorites?
