Happy Friday folks! It’s the second to last Friday of the month of October, which means Halloween is seriously right around the corner. Exciting stuff! I know my little one is looking forward to going trick or treating and eating candy she doesn’t need. To be fair, being the parent of a toddler on Halloween is like hitting the jackpot, because you only let the toddler eat a few pieces and you get to eat the rest! 🙂
In all seriousness though, outside of the candy and costumes, I looooove scary movies. I don’t quite know how to explain it, but I love the feeling of being scared, while watching movies. It just works me up and gets me all into it. I especially love watching scary movies with my husband because who doesn’t love having someone to grab at the jumpy parts? Because of how much I enjoy scary movies I’m actually quite hard to please in the department of considering a scary movie to be GOOD. I judge everything from the plot to the musical scores used during the film. Here is a list of my favorite scary movies that continually creep me out no matter how many times I watch them.
If you couldn’t tell from my Halloween posts last year, Michael Myers, is my favorite villain of all time. His calm yet sneaky demeanor coupled with his second to none theme music gets me every time. There are about fifty Halloween movies, but my favorites are the classics Halloween and Halloween II. I actually really enjoyed Rob Zombie’s remake of the first one too. I hated his remake of the second one though.
2. The Conjuring:
This movie is very well executed. For those of us who believe in God, you have to believe in demons. I wholeheartedly believe in demons and movies with demons in them always hit me in the feels. I feel it even more when movies like The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 use the word of God to dismantle the demons. The Conjuring 2 is much better than the first one in my opinion. Both still great movies though.
I first saw this movie when I was about 5 years old and I had nightmares for about a month. For this movie to be so old it was actually very well thought out…except for the ending. The last 20% of the movie was terrible in my opinion. A big spider? Really? Stephen King couldn’t have come up with anything better than a spider? Anyway, Pennywise is still one of the creepiest and scariest villains I’ve ever seen. Tim Curry played the role extremely well. I’m looking forward to the remake next year!
I actually remember going to see this movie in the theater with a few of my college friends. I remember how crazy we all thought the twist was and how much we couldn’t stop talking about it because we were so creeped out. What makes this movie scary is the reality of it. There were no superpowers or paranormal things going on in this movie. It was just good ol’ extremely creepy stuff. Considering how crazy this world is: it’s not unbelievable either.
This movie was perfect for the jump scares. Especially when you saw it in the theater. They did a really great job of making everything in this movie creepy. The anticipation of what was coming next and how could it get more outrageous is what I enjoy. Oh, and the images of the villain(s) are beyond scary. Although there are two Sinister movies I have never seen Sinister 2 because of the terrible reviews I’ve heard from other people.
