Before I get too far ahead of myself, I want to shout out to my son whose birthday is today. He was born originally on Friday, October 13th by C-section. No, I was not superstitious at all. My son has been mostly goth his entire life. Guess what his favorite holiday is?
I am grateful to have such a terrific son!
First a couple of classics.
When I was a kid my Dad had an 8mm projector. Two of the movies he owned and we watched together was Swamp Thing and the Mummy. Now, I realize that these may not have been all blood and gut-wrenching films but when you are a young child, they make you scream!
Moving on to more recent films.
Nothing says Halloween horror films than the classic Friday the 13 films...well, at least the first one. The blood-killer, Jason chops up and shoots arrows through several unsuspecting campers and counselors. The movie made you scream and never want to go to Summer camp ever again!
As I mentioned above I am not a horror film fan and I admit that I have not seen this movie in its entirety. However, by not mentioning it I would do the movie an injustice. Also, I mention it because I do not live that far from the hotel where Stephen King stayed when he wrote the book or for that matter the TV adaptations was filmed. The hotel is reported to have ghost to this day, one of which Stephen King wrote about in his book. That is enough to scare the living day lights out of me but maybe I will see the film anyway...with all the light on...in the middle of the day!
I have obviously only mentioned a few of the numerous horror genre films out there. If I mentioned them all, I would be here until the next century. What is a favorite you have? Tell me about it and why it scared you or why you like it so much.
Make sure you come back Monday for a Mondays Music thriller and a beginning of another week of the Halloween countdown.
Your Crypt Keeper,
