What do you do when you’re not writing? I sleep – because usually I don’t get much of that. I also love to watch movies. Recently my daughter and I sat down and discussed our favorite horror movies. We both crave the adrenaline rush, sweaty palms, and racing heart that scary movies induce. I decided I’d share our top three with everyone. It’s amazing but we have similar taste in movies. Why is that amazing? Um, I did say she was a teenager – 17 to be exact. She never agrees with me on anything.
We both agree that little kids are creepy and that a lot of blood does not equal scary. Case in point, no Saw movies are on the list. Neither of us have even seen all the movies. We love psychological thrillers, something to make us think. Our lists are below:
MY FAVORITE HORROR
John Carpenter's Halloween
The Little Girl that Lives Down the Lane – This movie stars a young Jodie Foster. She lives alone in a big house in what seems to be nowhere. She is creepy and mature for her years. I watched this as a child and for some reason I always remembered being terrified of this movie. But I watched it about 4 years ago and while it was creepy it wasn’t really that scary.
AZIA’S FAVORITE HORROR FILMS
John Carpenter's Halloween (the original)
The Omen (the new version)
The Amityville Horror (new version) - this movie starred Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George as the Lutz. This version closely resembles the original but with some extra scenes of Reynolds with no shirt on to make
me audiences swoon as his chest ripples from the vibration...Um, okay...this was a great remake. I don't normally like remakes but this one was solid. And not only because we got serious body action from Reynolds - the acting was stellar.
