I saw all those except the First Power. And of course I saw the Exorcism..... I love scary movies, and most movies in general, but I can't say that scary movies ever made me afraid, not lately anyway, maybe twenty years ago.
Especially since I've never owned a house with backs on the stairs, they've always had the open steps..... and you just know you're going to feel someone's hands tightening around your ankles one of those nights you are doing a late laundry
You can cuss me later tonight for that image

A pretty good one I saw about a year ago on Dish, and can't remember the name, was one about a girl who was brutally murdered. The whole movie was in flashbacks, with them showing you just a little more and another scene each time. It was really cool the way they did it. More horror than terror, because you knew something else was going on.

Yep, I love them all. Even the parodies.

LOL!!! I love it!! I like getting the heebie geebies!!! Pacanis, you will have to try and remember the movie... remember who was in it at all?

Oh, here are a few that I loved as a kid... but don't see anymore as they are pretty old.

Horror Express... that one bugged me for a bit and I had trouble sleeping.

Galaxy of Terror was another that was freaky to me.

Geez.... I am feeling horror deprived. I never heard of those two either.

I'll do my best to remember if someone doesn't do it for me. It had a bunch of nobodies in it. Kind of made along independent (cheap) lines.

Off to IMDB to do a couple searches.

I liked The Hills Have Eyes I hated the second one. I liked Shaun of the Dead pretty funny. Still Vampire movies are my fave. Anyone watching the HBO series True Blood? I wish they would just show the whole thing rather than one hour every week.

Thanks pacanis... I got that one down on my list 'to see'.

I have been a horror film junkie for a long time. Obviously. If you ever get a chance to see the two older ones I mentioned, they are really good in my opinion. Specially when it comes to weird stuff.

Shaun of the Dead was great!!! I also like the Grindhouse movies. I have been trying to watch True Blood, don't see anything scary about it, I get more of a kick out of the characters than anything, but as a vamp/horror show, it has yet to intrigue me.

The one that terrified me as a kid (I'm aging myself here) was The Wax Museum. I had nightmares for years after that. Now I look at it and laugh, but it sure scared the living daylights out of me as a kid.

I'll have to give the first one a chance I think

Sequels are almost always bad except for one sequel I thought was better than the original:

ALIENS

The Exorcist was on AMC last night. I watched it. Anyone else watch it last night?
