Scary Movies

Halloween is getting closer! I am fully aware it isn't October yet...but when you have that Halloween Fever, you can't help but count down the days! 

What's your favorite scary movie? *heavy breathing* 

 Oh! Sorry...i got caught up in the moment. That happens from time to time. Didn't mean to freak you out! 

Apart from the trick or treating, dressing up or even the Halloween baking...Scary movies are one of the funnest things about Halloween. FACT.

Last night Chrissy and myself got our creepy spook on...Tortilla soup, Pajamas (just me...any excuse to wear pjs!), Popcorn & Paranormal Activity 1 & 2. That's how we do it round these grown ups have movie nights whilst hiding under blankets. We jumped alot and made strange girlish noises...But then we started laughing as a lady got pulled down the stairs. We might not have taken it seriously. 

We are friends here, i won't lie to you...Paranormal Activity is jumpy and slightly creepy...but that is it. Not scary at all. I slept like a baby...but any noise i heard i assumed it was a demon stalker...plotting to have his way with me. Sicko.

So yeah, i would watch films like this over and over again. Scary movies are my favorite film genre. Their my thaaaang. That was quite gangsta of me, sorry.
I have more scary DVDs then any other DVDs...that's how brave i am. Yeah, so brave! Unless you put on Jurassic Park. Then i will cry, but you wouldn't do that to me! Would you? Nooo! Dinosaurs. Pah! Scary. Thank goodness they are NOT around anymore. 

As a child i was terrified of anything scary. Anything at all, my imagination was pretty intense. Night time was quite an issue for me at times...i would wake everybody up because i heard a noise and thought it was a monster. Pretty standard thinking. I would need the hall light on at all times...and my dog had to be on my bed throughout the night. Protection. He is such a tough guy! Bo i miss you and your manish ways. Faye hug him for me. There's a girl.

Now a days, horror movies make me excited more then anything. Ghosts are crazy interesting to me, and serial killers are fascinating...i maybe a strange chick for thinking like that, but that is just the way i feel. The child inside of me just needs a i hug her often. Make her feel safe! She is no longer scared...i don't need that hall light on anymore and Ruffles Bug can sleep in his own bed...although i would like him to sleep on my bed...because he is super cute.  Check out how grown up and brave i am! 

Now i want to share my favorite Scary Films with you...such a sharer! 

* The Shining. This was the first Scary Movie that i watched by myself...started off big! I was babysitting and nothing was on TV...either boxing or The Shining...i hate i watched The Shining. I fell in love with scary movies. The bathtub scene got me pretty good! Such a good film! Creepy, jumpy and actually scary! Wonderful fun! Jack Nicholson is an amazing actor. One of my faves. He is frightening, perfect for horror. 

* The Exorcist. A story about a girl possessed by the devil. An old school film made in the 1973. It was considered one of the scariest films of all time. I can understand why as nothing like this had been made in to a film before. Now a days we have quite the pick of possession films...lucky us! Disturbing in parts and quite creepy. I fully enjoy it! 

* Nightmare on Elm Street. The original...not the 2010 remake! I am such a fan of Freddy Kruger...he is a pretty frightening individual. Freddy haunts teenagers nightmares and kills them off one by one. A good slasher film! I have the boxset with all the films...Halloween is gonna be good! 

* Scream. I loooove the Scream movies! Gore and sooooo many wonderful horror movie cliches that make you shout at your TV! 'Don't go outside, you stupid bitch!' Yeah, i shout that...yet they never listen. Always goin' outside to investigate the strange noise and leaving the door wide open for any crazy psycho to creep inside! These films will keep you on your toes...poor Sidney Prescott...those crazy serial killers just won't leave her alone! Haven't seen Scream 4 yet...hopefully it is as good as the other 3! 

* Halloween. The original! Halloween is about a crazy fella called Micheal Myers who killed his sister age the age of 6. Pretty extreme. After he escapes the mental hospital 15 years later, Micheal starts to stalk Jamie Lee Curtis...well her character and her friends. Micheal just likes to get his murder on is all...with his creepy white mask and jumpsuit on. Standard. 

* Jaws. I love this film. It is defiantly one of my top 10 films ever. Jaws is about a crazy huge killer shark terrorizing the little town of Amity. Chief Brody, Hooper and Quint decide to go after Jaws...they should have gone in a bigger boat...hey! Yeah! Said it! The actors on this film didn't believe it would be a a big wrong were they!? Jaws was a huge success and still popular today. Well done Mr Spielberg, well done. 

* Saw. All gory and disturbing. I love these films, i am pleased they are done making them though. It was getting kinda silly. We get it...Jigsaw likes to teach people lessons! Jigsaw took it upon himself to teach the self abusing, self absorbed and naughty people lessons...that they either live through or a very creative...gruesome way. Chester Bennington died in Saw 6 (i think 6) killed me a little to watch, i had to remind myself it was just a movie. This has been the only horror film that i have gotten my fella to watch with me...and he loved it. 

* The Ring. NOT The Ring 2...what a shit film that was. The Ring is good...i like it...I like that is it actually quite frightening! If you watch the video containing the deadly will get a phone call a few seconds later telling you have 7 days to live. A week, so...start doing those things on your wish list! Samara, the strange child with long black hair in the video will come and get you after the 7 crawling at of the TV. That's magic for you. Scary magic.

* The Amityville Horror. The one with Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds. Goodness. Although i was waiting for him to say something funny throughout the movie (which he didn't) He was pretty awesome in this...all intense and shirtless at times. Wonderful.  So Ryan's house is basically telling him to murder his family...because houses do sometimes talk...based on a true story about a fella who really did murder his entire family. Grisly. What a crazy film...with a shirtless Ryan Reynolds. SOLD! 

* 28 Days Later. Zooooombie film! Zombies are terrifying...undead people trying to eat alive people's brains. I am fond of my this concept gives me chills. 28 Days Later is about this guy waking up for a coma to find the world has been taken over by a zombie virus. He and his gang try their best to stay alive in the crazy zombie filled land...that is England. Frightening. It was strange seeing tourist places looking abandoned, The London Bridge for example. So messy. Messy and quiet. Strange. 

*  The Crazies. Fear Thy Neighbors indeed! This film is about a small town being plagued with a crazy illness that causes insanity...mad, murderous insanity. Just another reason to fear tap water too. Kinda like zombies...zombies that can use guns, drive, talk and a whole bunch of random dangerous insane things. Jumpy and scary...i may have squealed at one point. That MAY have happened...OH and that fit fella from Justified is the main guy. Nice.

* Texas Chainsaw Massacre. This film made me uneasy about moving to Texas. I would be thinking the same thing! We are so in sync. Based on a true you know shit went down. A gang of rather good lookin' people...give or take a few...pick up this gal walking in the road...they kindly give her a does she repay them? I'll tell you how! By pulling a gun out of her lady garden and shooting herself! 1. how did she hold the gun in there? and 2. How rude is that? Making such a mess in their van. That all happens in the first 5 minutes of the film. You haven't even met the deformed stalking chainsaw killer and his cannibal family! Boy oh boy...this film is a treat. Jessica Biel is far to good looking. 

* The Orphanage. A Spanish ghost film. A lovely lady moves back to her childhood home where she was an orphan with her husband and son. She decides to open up an orphanage for handicapped children...but then her son starts making friends with invisible people...then goes missing. A sad tale with quite a twist! A tad creepy, not very scary. I really just like the story. Her hair is really nice too. Enjoy her hair. 

* Case 39. I loooove scary films when the main character has to find out the truth...they become awesome detectives! like in The Ring...quite the detective work going on there! Emily is a social worker...good for her. She helps a child with crazy parents and decides she wants the child. What a sweetheart! But shit hits the fan...i won't give anything away, that would be silly. And you would want to punch me. But yeah...things get pretty crazy. One part involves a closet...and chasing. That's all i am saying...but that scared the ba-geeeez  out of me! Bradley Cooper is in it too...*SWOON* Bradley with his manish manly ways. And Renee Zellweger is the main gal...her face is scary as it is. Oooh! i went there. 

So, there we have it...check out some of my favorite scaaaary movies. Did i get you in that Halloween feeling? I hope i did! I know i am...but when am i not to be fair. 
I am about the watch The is ment to be quite a good ghost movie...we shall see! I will keep you updated with the films i see. 

Just went and saw The Lion King in blew my mind. I sang along and cried and laughed really loud.  Yes. I am that annoying person that talks about the characters as if they were real people "Oh no...I hope he goes back to Pride Rock and shows Scar a thing or too!' Something i would say...something i DID say. I know Simba goes back, but i just need people to feel the passion. Totally makes sense and you know it! 

Hey guys...i enjoyed this. I enjoy you. 

Peace, Love & Kara <3
