Top Ten Tuesday: Scary Movies

Tuesday, March 29, 2016
Boo!



I'm so addicted to Snapchat (@frenchrum) so I thought this picture was befitting of this week's Top Ten List - Scary movies (in ascending order).   

1:  Aliens (1986) - Memories.  This movie takes me back to slumber parties and popcorn.  Seeing this as a youngster was awesome b/c it scared me and I loved every minute of it and Ripley was bad ass.

2: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) - Johnny Depp.  In the Bed.  With all The Blood.  And I was like 6, so yeah, I had nightmares.

3: Jaws (1975) - That music.  From the jump, this movie is so suspenseful and Roy Schneider as Chief Brody was just so good.

4: Poltergeist (1982) - The family was cursed.  The movie was cursed.  Am I cursed?

5: The Ring (2002) - A guy I was dating at the time knew I was watching this in my apartment all alone and decided to call me on my landline phone during the movie and not say anything and freak me out.  We didn't last long.

6: The Exorcist (1973) - I have always loved scary movies and even I was scared to watch this until I was in my early teens.  Ok, 12 but still.  Once I did, it was so worth it.  Gotta love religious horror.

7: The Shining (1980) - Creepy as all.  Jack Nicholson's face is scary enough in the movie not to mention the great story, score, and the Overlook Hotel.

8: The Others (2001) - So psychological and spooky.  This is such a great movie the first time you watch it.  But there is still so much more to try to figure out on subsequent screenings.  And mama was cray.  

9: The Sixth Sense (1999) - Another psychological, spooky flick.  Ghosts are creepy.  But they really just want your help.  While still being extremely creepy.

10:  The Hills Have Eyes (2006) - Ick, gross, all the yuck feels for this one.  I can't with those mutant psychos.  Still creeps me out thinking about it.  Stupid suburban family on vacation...

It was so hard to pick these and narrow down to my top ten of all time.  I used my brain today guys.  There are so many suspenseful but not quite scary movies out there that I love.  Bram Stoker's Dracula, Silence of the Lambs, Insidious.  I must admit that I have not seen Sinister or any of the Paranormal Activity movies.  I'll get right on that.

I was inspired by the Top Ten Tuesday weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.


What is your number one, favorite scary movie of all time?
