What do you ladies and gents like to watch around Halloween? I do like to indulge in my childhood favourites every year: Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus. But I do love me some scary movies.
I like zombies, vampires (REAL ones, the kind that burst into flames in the sun, not sparkle…) serial killers, everything really. Always on the lookout for new recommendations, because I find a lot of horror movies (especially ones that make it to theaters) are usually super dissapointing. I want to see Insidious 2 but FI is not a fan, I may just end up going alone.
So, *in Ghostface voice* what’s your favourite scary movie?

The Silence of the Lambs is my favorite movie, and always will be! Though I own all four movies in the series, and I watch them all pretty regularly.

@pixiecat: Definitely see Cabin in the Woods if you haven’t seen it already. I have Evil Dead 2, Children of the Corn, and House at the End of the Street queued up on my Netflix for this weekend. Trick ‘r Treat is a fun watch. Ginger Snaps Back is freaking hilarious. Not to mention the original American Werewolf in London.

@pixiecat: I have to go with a classic on this one.. “Halloween” is my favourite scary movie..
BUT, as far as newer scry movies.. “Devil” was pretty good, and “A Haunting In Connecticut” was SO FREAKIN scary! lol

@pixiecat: The remake of Carrie is coming out this weeeeeeeeeek! Also, I own the Saw series (yes, all 7 — dont judge) and watch those pretty frequently. I enjoyed The Human Centipede and The Descent and one we just saw randomly on netflicks: The Fourth Kind. I also quite like The Exorcist, The Shining, and Hostel (I and II).
Have fun!!!! 🙂

@pixiecat The 28 days/weeks Later series are good, 30 days of night is scarey. Also I liked the remake of Dawn of the Dead. Old zombie/dark magic movies are super scarey too (Exorcist, Rosemary’s Baby, Omega Man). My faves are from the 90s, not really scarey just great cinamatic stories (Dracula, Wolf, Frankenstein).
You may have seen all these already, and I can be a big scaredy cat cause I like it. (I jumped at Freddy vs Jason and Grave Encounters while my FI was snoring next to me)

@beachbride1216: I loved Cabin in the Woods! I have only seen the first Evil Dead and the remake, maybe I should look up the sequels.
@Stephville: Never seen Haunting in Connecticut, I’ll put that on the list! I do like classics too, the newer movies try to make up for a boring story line and not many scares with blood and guts. I do like a good gorey movie, but there still needs to be a worthwhile story.

It’s not super scary (I am not a fan of scary movies in general), but Monster House is one of my favorites!!

@ApocalypseCow: I will never watch the Exorcist again, my dad showed it to me when I was 11 I think (mom was out of town with my brother for his baseball). My dad got in so much trouble, and I still have nightmares! I can’t even look at pictures from that movie where Reagan is all possessed. I guess the movie accomplished it’s goal of scaring the crap out of me!

I really enjoyed the Paranormal activity movies. Also Scream 4 was surprisingly good. The fog was both good and super messed up. Nightmare on Elm Streets are always good.

@CorgiTales: I watched the first Paranomal Activity and I still want those 90 minutes of my life back. A bunch of my classmates at the time watched it and were talking about how they didn’t sleep for days, so I was super excited. I was so bored the whole time! I didn’t bother with any of the sequels.

Regarding a Haunting in Connecticut, this is all I can think of when I hear the name of that movie …… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0dtKpuM5gU

@pixiecat For sure. All the parts that creeped me out, my mom never remembered from the original version that scared her back in the 70s (walking backward down the stairs, etc)

I wouldn’t say that it’s my favorite scary movie, but it’s a tradition to watch the original Halloween. I have The Shining on its way from Netflix as well. I will also be going to see Carrie when it comes out.
