What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie?

Halloween is my second favorite time of the year. Why you ask? Maybe it’s because my birthday is the day after, or maybe it’s because that’s when I get to watch some of my favorite scary movies back to back, with no interruptions.  Or maybe it’s because I am fascinated with all things that go bump in the night.  Either way, Halloween is the only time of the year when a person is able to step out of their comfort zone and try something new, become someone else.  It’s the one day where anything goes. Over the years I have seen many, many, many horror movies.  One of my favorite memories is watching Friday the 13th with my mother when I was younger.  Being curled up on the couch, huddled together waiting for Jason to murder his next victim was quite the mother –daughter experience.  A tradition that we followed seamlessly for many years.

With each passing year horror movies evolve with whatever is hot at the moment. From vampires and zombies, to psychological thrillers, I have seen them, studied them, and enjoyed them all.  This Halloween I wanted to share with my readers trailers from some of my top horror/scary movies of all time.  I invite you all to watch them, find out why they are so spooky, and maybe if you haven’t had the chance to see them, I dare you to watch them all – Alone, and in the dark.






Hellraiser (1987)



The first scary movie I ever saw. I was so frightened I have not seen this movie since that dreadful day back in the 80’s.



The Omen (1976)



Umm hello, is anyone scarier than Damien?



Amityville Horror (1979)



Is this movie really based on fact? You tell me.


The Shining (1980)



Psychological thrillers/horror films don’t get any creepier than Stephen King’s The Shining. Red Rum, Red Rum.



The Ring (2002)



The movie that made me want to NEVER answer the phone.


A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)



Freddy Kruger is probably the most frightening character ever created. Being killed in your dreams is enough to drive any one insane. Nightmare on Elm Street 4 is my favorite Freddy movie.



The Descent (2006)



This movie is so creepy, I am pretty sure you WON’T sleep after watching it.



28 Days Later (2002)



And here is the reason why we now have fast-paced ZOMBIES!



Saw (2004)



The movie that made us ask ourselves, “What would you do to save your life?”



The Exorcist (1973)



“The power of Christ compels you! The power of Christ compels you!”




Now, What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie?


Happy Halloween!!!
