My Favorite {s c a r y} Movies


{doing my best scared/suspense movie face}
Everyone likes scary movies, right? The adrenaline, nerves & giggly fear they instill inside us can become quite addicting. While I'm not a blood & gore lady, I do like some good, classic, thrills & chills. In the spirit of Halloween, here are my top 10 faves.

Check them out, turn out the lights, & get scared!

10. Mothman Prophecies {I actually got so upset watching this, I cried, ha}
9. The Exorcism of Emily Rose {Pipee not like demons}
8. Invasion of the Body Snatchers {1956}
7. Nosferatu {1922}
6. The Orphanage {El orfanato}
5. The Sixth Sense {Mischa Barton alert!}
4. Halloween {again, the original, please}
3. Rear Window
2. The Birds
1. Rosemary's Baby {wouldn't walk to a friend's car alone after this one}

I watched Rear Window as a kid, and it freaked me out. Don't even get me started on Rosemary's Baby....*chills*

Marissa said...

I can't watch scary movies because I am a big baby haha :)

Carol said...

I am a total wimp and can't do scary movies!

Ahhhh no! I can't do the scary movie thing, but I am jealous b/c so many people have so much fun with them :)

I love The Orphanage. And The Exorcism of Emily Rose? Yeah, I will never watch that late at night again! It still creeps me out and I haven't seen it since it came out.

I have not seen Rosemary's Baby. But, I do want to.

Love the "scared" picture.

HATE scary movies. Can't even watch the previews or I won't be able to sleep for weeks.

Just thinking about scary movies gives me the creeps... And if I do watch one, I know for sure that I won't be sleeping for a few weeks afterwards. I am THAT big of a baby! But, this list would be helpful if I wasn't a petrified wimp. :)

I absolutely, positively refuse to watch scary movies. No thank you. I used to get harassed quite badly for it, but I'm happy without my nightmares :)

Rosemary said...

Agree--Rosemary's Baby is the scariest movie I've ever seen. Mostly because my name is Rosemary. Can't wait for those jokes when I start a family! ;)

Ahhhh The Mothman Prophecies freaked me out forever! I think I seriously blocked it out of my mind though, I can't really remember what it's about and that's a GOOD thing. I am so not a scary movie fan!

I love scary movies but haven't seen your #10, 8 and 7! I so need to do this this week! And yeah, Rosemary's Baby is my #1, too (that is if I had a list!).
