Let me preface this by saying I do not really like the kind of movies that mess with your mind. I tend to like the more old school scary movies. My favorite scary movies may have scared me when I was younger but now are just fun to watch. Especially this week!!! Didn’t you know tomorrow is Halloween? So if you need a scary movie to watch tomorrow night here are my favorites.
1. The Scream Trilogy: First time I saw original scream I was 12. I snuck into the movie with my friends and after the first scene I ran out of the theater. 18 years later and I will most likely watch scream if I see it on any TV channel and watch the entire thing. I plan on making Andrew watch the trilogy Friday night because I haven’t watched it in years all together!
2. Halloween: The Original Halloween was so scary to me in middle school that once at a sleepover with my friend Jordan I made her turn it off. I also did not sleep that night. Now its amusing to watch because it’s so silly. People regard it as one of the scariest movies of all time and at the time it came out I can completely see how that was a very scary movie. Now it’s just fun! *Note this also includes Halloween 2, 5, The curse of Michael Myers, H20 etc. 3 and 4 did not have Michael Myers.
3. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: As a kid living in Texas a part of you always wondered if it really happened. The answer is no it did not. But here is a fun clue: Turn on the original and mute it and make your own lines up with a group of friends. Makes for a good time.
4. The Blair Witch Project: OK so the first time I saw it I threw up mainly because the camera movement made me actually sick in the theater. I never thought: OK this movie is scary but I did think it was real and it only made my reasoning for not ever wanting to camp more realistic. About 2 weeks after it came out I saw the cast on David Letterman and I was like WTH??? Now it’s just fun to watch.
5. A Nightmare on Elm Street: One Two Freddies coming for you….need I say more?
So then I must as you all this important question….
