My “Exclusive” Halloween Horror Movie List 2010

October 27, 2010

The internet is all a buzz about which movies I’m watching to get into the Halloween spirit this year (not really.) So here you go:  here’s my “exclusive” list of horror/scary movies that I’ve watched this month in preparation for the big day.  (Note: this is not a list of “my favorite horror movies” but simply horror movies I’ve chosen to watch this month…  some for the first time; others for the bizillionenth time.)

1. Let the Right One In. Good vampire flick.  Love its “minimalist” style.   Very foreign.  Wouldn’t mind seeing the American remake one of these days.  Umm… spoiler alert…

2. An American Werewolf in London. Seen it before.  Will probably see it again.  A decent movie.  But way below it’s potential… especially with the ghosts that follow him.

3.  A Nightmare on Elm Street. Entertaining.  Though not much substance.  It’s amazing how far iconic costume design will get a franchise (hat and glove… reminds me of another iconic character’s hat and whip.)

4.  The Gate. This movie scared the hell out of me as a kid.  Still entertaining.  Great ’80s fashion.  Reminds me of my brother.  On a side note, whatever happened to the kids horror movie genre anyway?

5. Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. Another first time viewing.  Props to Wes Craven for taking the Last Action Hero approach.  Too bad its still a Wes Craven movie.  What scared me the most?  The Earthquakes.  Runner up?  Miko Hughes… the kid’s just creepy.  What scared me the least:  Freddy.

REEEEEEEEXXXXXXXXXX!

6. Children of Men. Not really a horror film but far scarier and more suspenseful than any of those listed above.  I caught the end of it the other day so its makes the list.  Besides, any chance to post a clip from Children of Men

I might be forgetting a few and I’ll likely watch a few more so expect an update soon!
