annnnd yes I said the cliche from Scream but honestly, what’s your favourite scary movie??
Over the past few weeks I’ve been rewatching some classics and some newbies and I thought I’d compile a list of some good scares
Here are my 5 favs!
Starting at 5
The Scream franchise
These are hilarious and not that scary but are a great watch. In them they talk about scary movies and the traditional way they work, all while they are being killed off left, right and centre. Go Ghostface. How Sidney Prescott continues to be a target, I don’t know BUT she kept those movies alive enough to make 4 movies. Go Neve Campbell! Only downside is, if you’ve seen scary movie 1 then you cannot take these seriously AT ALL.
So Halloween has Michael Myers, disturbed kid, disturbed adult. He hunts down everyone and kills them. Now this has the ORIGINAL scream queen, Jamie Lee Curtis. That’s all I need in a movie.
Evil Dead (the remake)
This has nothing on the originals BUT it is gory, makes you jump and is all around a great watch. The characters are great and it’s creepy from the get go.
Cabin in the woods
Joss Whedon, must I say more? Completely out of the box, different and gore plus. I love everything about this movie. Betting on how people will die? What will kill them? Brilliant. I feel bad that the mermen didn’t get unleashed on the kids cause that would have been pretty awesome. At least the guy got to see the mermen in the end. The spontaneous arrival of Sigourney Weaver, that was cool.
All I can say about this movie is, what the actual fuck! This movie has it all. Demon, creepy kids and Ethan Hawke. It has no happy ending and all in all makes you want to cry. That doesn’t mean I’m not excited for sinister 2. This movie is over and above creepy and I love it. When a horror movie actually does its job and scares me, then I’m satisfied. The subtle creepy things in this movie are what get you and seriously make you jump out of your seat.
That concludes today’s post on movies.
I hope you take my suggestions and check these out.
