Do you like scary movies????????


Ok, these two men scare the hell out me! I love HORROR MOVIES! If you know me well, you know that. I think I have seen just about every horror movie know to man, even the low budget cheesy ones. There is another man who I won't even post his pic, because I am home alone and that is the TALL MAN from Phantasm. He is sooooo creepy. He is 7'1 in real life! I can remember being a child going to the drive in movies to see horror films. I started out brave little soldier laying on top of the hood of the car with my big brother and a blanket, 15 minutes later I was in my mom's lap with my face tucked inside her shirt on the inside of the car.....LOL

I can remember the first time I saw Halloween. I was 5 years old. I begged and begged to go with my mom! She said no! I asked dad, dad said yes! My mom informed me that I would have nightmares and that I still would have to sleep in my own room (who was she kidding, I slept with my mom until I was 19 years old....that is why dad had his own room....LOL). I went in excited and happy that I had won and mommy lost! I was feeling a bit victorious and smug....LOL The movie came on and I can remember jumping in my dad's lap and pulling his coat over my face. I was so scared, Especially the part when Laurie Strode had found all of her friends dead and she was upstairs and Michael came out of the darkness and started to choke her. I thought I was going to have a heart attack! But, from that day forward, I love horror movies. I like being scared! I know it sounds crazy, but the scarier the better!

Then there is Candyman! I was pregnant with my first child when I saw this movie and honestly, it is the only movie where I wanted to run out of the theather. His voice is what scares me! Especially when he says "HELEN". I have never in my life been more scared! Never. I thought that nothing would ever top Salem's Lot! That movie scared me to death too, but Candyman has won the title as "most scariest movie ever" for me.

Then their is Phantasm, the movie where the tall man goes to the cemetaries and takes dead bodies and turns then into hideous monsters that kill. Then he also has this flying metal ball that hits you in the head and drills into your skull. So nasty. To top it off, the tall man had YELLOW BLOOD. So gross, scared me to death, when I was little.

Then there are those classics like Prom Night,Nightmare on Elm Street, Nightmares (watched that last night),Friday the 13th, Carrie, Christine, the Exorcist, Bloody Birthday, Happy Birthday to me, The Shining, Creepshow, The OMen, Amytiville Horror 2 the possession, Pet Semetary, I can go on and on ....I have to watch them every year! I have hundreds of horror dvd's in my collection, every Tuesday I add more!

My dad created a Monster, ever since I saw my first horror movie, I can't get enough! I literally search the television daily to see if their is any good horror movies on.... I swear I am not a weirdo, i just love me some horror. Good horror that is ....

Here's something you probably don't know.....Do you know where Michael Myers mask idea came from? Look closely, does it look like anybody you know? Look hard!

Well, its Captain Kirk (William Shatner), they took a Halloween Star Trek mask, sprayed it white, cut out the eyes, and spiked the hair! There you have it! You learn something new everyday!!!

Have fun! Be safe!!! Take lots of pics to post on your blog....LOL

Until next time...

'Halloween' is one of my all time favorite scary movies-I knew about the mask too ;)

both my mom and I love to watch scary movies, but I am not a big fan of the overly gory ones like 'Saw'.

Any Freddy movies scare they crap out of me..I cant watch them alone, lol. and I totally agree with you-the Candyman voice is so creepy.

Oh. My. Gosh.

I'm freaked out just looking at that Candyman pic. I saw that movie years ago, and couldn't bear to be in a room with a mirror on my own for a long time (have I got the right movie - used to love horrors in my younger years!) Way too scary now. You're a brave gal, Dana!
