Technorati Tags: Halloween Freddy+Krueger Nightmare+on+Elm+Street Friday+The+13th
I can’t watch horror movies, in general. I end up not being able to sleep.
Neither of these guys really put much fear in me. Now Henry Kane from Poltergeist II and III, that guy kept me up.
We don’t watch horro movies or read posts about them.
Halloween and The Thing (remake), both by John Carpenter. They scared the buh-jeezus out of me as a kid.
The clown in Poltergeist. I couldn’t look under my bed without feeling some fear until high school.
the old Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the one that gave me the most willies and sleepless nights, but between Freddie and Jason i must say Freddie was the scariest. There was enough in the older horror films that was unrealalistic that they were fun to watch, now they are too gorry and real.
Actually, forget the “when I was a kid” stuff, anything starring Nicole Kidman still gives me nightmares. Don’t ask me why.
That scene from Nightmare with the girl in the bloody body bag in the high school hallway, that really creeped me out when I was a kid.
I agree with Chris: the original “Halloween” was much scarier than the NOES or FT13 originals. Especially when Jamie Lee Curtis is crying, and Michael suddenly does a sit-up in the background…
There are two films that really, really creep me out: the old silent film “Nosferatu” and the 1979 “Salem’s Lot” (especially when the boy came back for his little brother!). The “Salem’s Lot” novel was a bit campy, and funny when the father jumped down on the boy’s coffin and started swearing.
I guess it was always vampires for me. Mass murderers are just a matter of having superior firepower, reflexes and will. Supernatural forces, though… Oh yeah, and then one day I was trying to prove to someone that babies once in a great while are born with teeth (as I was), and I found out that certain Eastern European folklore says such people come back from the dead as vampires. So when I die, drive a stake through my heart, stuff garlic in my mouth, and cut off my head.
Night of the Living Dead scared me more than slasher movies.
They’re coming to get you, Barbara!
An Inconvenient Truth. Al Gore is just so scary!!!!
Question: How do you tell Al Gore from a zombie? (And come to think of it, add a couple of well-placed bolts and Kerry becomes a shoe-in for a certain stitched-together literary figure…)
…Or instead of “shoe-in” (size 24EEE, I would think) the better cliche might have been “dead ringer”.
Rosie O’Donnell on “The View” = scary !
I never saw Friday the 13th. Nightmare on Elm Street though – loved them. I didn’t think they were scary…I thought they were hilarious.
That said, I’ve never really been into horror movies. I thought Hellraiser was scary, and Poltergeist was nasty.
The movies that really scared me as a kid: Disney movies. That witch in Sleeping Beauty was pure nightmare fuel, in my opinion.
