Boo to You!
It's October. Halloween Month. The only thing scarier than Halloween, is how long it has been since I've had a new post. Sorry about that, Dear Reader, I have no excuse.
Now that I am back, though, I'd love to celebrate the Spooky Season by writing a column about the scariest movies you can watch. Films that will enhance your enjoyment of this festive season.
I already wrote a list of films that I consider scary last year (check out the archives). This year, I'd like your help. Although I have seen more movies and TV shows than most mortals, I am sure there are one or two super creep-fests that I may have missed. So, please, Faithful Friends, leave your recommendations for the scariest film(s) ever in the comments section of this blog. I'll review them all, and at the end of the month, I'll post a whopper of a list of "The Scariest Things to Watch Ever!"
A couple of guidelines, though:
• It doesn't have to be a movie. It can be a TV show. Goodness knows, there was an episode or two of Kolchack: The Night Stalker, that flipped me out.
• I am a funny person, and I'm sure you are too. I am also sure you share my abhorrence of lame jokes, such as suggesting Legally Blond as a scary film. I admit, it is horrifying, but that's not what we're looking for here.
Likewise, film titles that don't exist, that attack my character, will not be considered. So forget about, The Thing That Doesn't Flush the Toilet, The Diet Coke Fiend or The Terror of the Underwear Hamper!.
• Yes, I have seen the film Freaks. We are going for scary here, folks, not "creep you out till Christmas".
With these things in mind, please post your suggestions. Tell your friends/loved ones/ hated high school rivals to do the same. By the end of the month, we might have a heckava list.
Or, I'll just do another post about Rocco the Wonder Dog.
