Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome people at The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s topic is: Halloween related freebie
When I was a teen/tween pretty much every weekend consisted of a video store run for horror movies and a sleepover with friends. We went through a lot of cheesy horror movies, but some of them truly scared us and some of them were cheesy but we still loved them. My list consists of mostly older movies because I don’t like horror movies so much as an adult. I haven’t seen a new one since Paranormal Activity, probably. Which I liked, by the way. Anyway, here’s my favorites!
This probably sacred me the most! I’m pretty sure that Reagan is 13 in the movie and my friend and I were also 13 when we first watched it. It scared us sooooo much.
I can remember seeing this at a pretty early age. I was way too young to be watching it, but my older sister loved it. It’s been a favorite since then. I also love the book.
I love this movie. Love. Sure it’s cheesy and the suspenseful music is horrible but I love Michael Myers. He’s so creepy! Halloween 2 is also good.
Friday the 13th
This is your typical 80’s horror movie. It’s fun!
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Another awesome 80’s movie. Freddy probably scared me more than anything as a kid, but I loved the movies as a teen.
I was going to call this a modern horror movie, but I guess it’s kind of old now, huh? I really liked this movie. That girl scared me so bad. I think this was probably the last truly scary movie I’ve seen.
A classic! I need to read the book!
I love how eerie this movie is. It has a slower pace and a quiet kind of creepiness. It isn’t for everyone, but I think it’s awesome. I read the book in one sitting. The movie is a great adaptation.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
This is maybe on the cheesier side, but I love how f-ed up the people are. I also really liked the revamp.
Sometimes They Come Back
This one isn’t really that scary but I loved it so much. It’s based on a Stephen King short story, I believe.
What are your favorite horror movies? Recommend some newer ones and I might be brave and watch them!
