Halloween Blog Hop: Day 3: What's your fave scary movie?

Nightmare on Elm Street! I love Freddy. He is cheesy, and comes out with the most idiotic lines, but for some reason I  till think he rocks. Naturally it might have something to do with the fact that the guy wont let you sleep. *Trembles at the thought of no sleep* But I just love, love, love the Elm Street collection.

Well, I love the first four. The last three are a bit daft. Freddy VS Jason is not bad, I actually think it is rather funny. And I have to say I am liking the new one, but I think that might be because I think the new Freddy - Jackie Earle Haley - is an amazing actor.

All in all, it is my fave "scary" movie, but it doesn't actually scare me. In fact, I haven't actually come across any horrors - old or new - that do scare me. Or at least, I haven't yet.

The first 3 Scream movies - naturally done by the awesome Wes Craven, who directed the Elm Streets was the main horror of my generation. I was in high school when those films came out, and I have to say, I rather love them. I have yet to see Scream 4, but it's on my list ^_^

So, what is your favorite scary movie? And why? Did it give you nightmares? A good laugh? Do you watch it over and over again?

  1. My favorite scary movie is Stephen King's The Mist. Human nature is much more frightening to me than monsters or serial killers.

    quietrowdy1@yahoo.com. I have a Kindle.

  2. My favorite scary movie is and probably will always be The Shining. It scares me every time I watch it, even though I could recite it from beginning to end.

    Thanks for the chance to win your book!


  3. Favorite scary movie for me is The Exorcist.
    Get chills every time I watch it.
    Kindle format would work.

  5. My favorite scary movie is Hellraiser. Happy Halloween! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  6. A lot of these blogs have been looking for favorite scary movie & I've found my movie changing as other posters remind me of one I forgot. So far I've listed House, It, John Carpenters The Thing & most recently Christine, all of which I've watched more than once, which in itself is unusual for me.

    I've got a couple different kinds of eReaders, so I usually go with PDF so that I can convert it to whatever format I need for the reader that I'm using at the time.

  7. I'm not much of a scary movie watcher--I get scared too easily! The Peanuts holiday movies are much more my speed ;)

    And PDF is perfect, should I be so fortunate!

  8. @Amelia - The ending to that film shocked me, but yeah, human nature is scary.

    @mnj - It creeps me out, but it's a classic. So you gotta love it.

    @Jean - I soooo wont watch that lol I guess I'm a wuss, but the guy at the beginning really puts me off.

    @Gloria - I love the Red Dragon. I love the whole trilogy. Great films.

    @Shadow - Hellraiser really confuses me. I think I really need to watch the rest.

    @Kathryn - my mother loves The Thing, and it drives me crazy. I've seen the rest though, and they are good classics.

    @Flchen - My mother is the horror fan, so I got in to watching them because of her. But I love films in general. Big movie fan.

  9. I'm not much of a horror/scary movie fan. All of them gives me nightmares, even if I don't watch them, I am bad at looking up the spoilers and reading those and having nightmares. shiver. keep me with the children's movies and I'm all good (It's the great pumpkin charlie brown, Casper, etc.)
