My Top Ten Favourite Horror Movies of All Time
Horror movies have always been my favourite genre of movies. I remember watching horror movies at my friend Carla’s house when we were about 7 or 8 years old. They were R rated movies so we probably shouldn’t have been watching them, but we both loved scaring ourselves! Since then they have been my movie of choice anytime we go to the theatre or to rent a movie. I think I must actually like scaring myself!
I made a list of my top ten favourite horror movies. These are ones that have stuck in my head years after I watched them!
1. Halloween (1978): This movie was one of the first horror films I watched when I was young. Michael Myers, the manaic killer, who goes on a rampage on Halloween night, still scares me to this day. I cannot watch this one alone because it freaks me out! There’s something about that eerie mask he wears and that bone chilling music.
2. Paranormal Activity: I saw this one last year and it terrified me. I was scared to even go to the bathroom alone after it was over! I know it’s a good movie when it has that effect on me. I think the reason this one scared me so much is because it was about demons and it was shot in an amateur style making it seem like it was a true story. Do not watch this one alone.
10. Pet Semetary: People and animals returning from the dead…eek! There is one scene that sticks with me that I cannot get the image out of my head. The sister Zelda who is sick with meningitis and how freaky she looks especially when she attacks her family. The little boy returning from the dead is also pretty creepy.
Have you seen any of these movies? If so, what did you think? What horror movies would you include on your top ten list?
