Halloween

Hugo over at Polymathic Writings tagged me with a Halloween-y meme: List your top 10 selections and reasons for the selections.

So, here goes, in no particular order–

  1. Halloween.  Duh.  Because it’s pants-shittingly terrifying.  And don’t tell me it doesn’t hold up.  Turn off the lights and watch it by yourself at night.  I piss myself as soon as the light gets blown out in the pumpkin.
  2. Quarantine.  Today, I watched it in a theater by myself.  Not just that I went to the movies alone (which is sad), but no one else was in the theater.  I sat in the back and kept checking the doors for any movement.
  3. The Blair Witch Project.  Very subtly creepy throughout, and the ending is haunting.
  4. Seven.  Deeply disturbing.  I can’t watch it enough.
  5. Versus.  Kung fu zombies with guns.
  6. The Ravenholm Level of Half-Life 2.  Have you played this game?  Just about the scariest zombies I’ve ever seen.
  7. 28 Days Later. Except for these zombies.
  8. The Thing.  Psychologically damaging and just plain gross.  A perfect combination.
  9. The Exorcist.  The best depiction of the Catholic faith in any movie.  And the girl spits on a priest.  Awesome.
  10. Alien.  Just, Alien.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

  1. Thanks for doing the meme.

    I’ll look for Versus now since it sounds interesting. I’ll be looking at the results to find those more interesting movies. I may disagree with some of the answers, but horror is so subjective, that one person’s scary movie is another’s comedy.
