I think I need to rent The Omen, the original. Sounds perfect for Halloween night! You're linked!

I like reading the scary stuff but can't watch it. I guess the images I come up with in my head are not nearly so bad as the ones that come up on the screen. That said, I think I could watch the Abbott and Costello one;)

Did you know that when they filmed the original 'chest burster' scene in Alien, they didn't inform the cast of what was going to happen? Yeah, you probably knew that.

Aliens is one of my all-time faves. I liked 'The Others' for 'spookers', though, too. And I have not watched the Ring.

Did you know that William Castle has his own blog? It's actually written (ghost-written?) by his daughter, Terry.

Great list! Alien/Aliens are two of my favs. I'll have to check out some of the others. Thanks!

"The Shining" is my all time favorite horror film. I've seen it so many time I can practically recite it.
I actually like the original "Fly" but I love the Jeff Goldblum version, too! That scene in the bar when he's arm wrestling? ICK! Maybe even ickier than the acid-drooling scenes.
And "House on Haunted Hill" was the nightmare movie of my childhood. Years later I watched it again and got what the real story was, but when you are a kid and you see heads in coffins, well...you want to sleep with the lights on. And remember: "Come with us! Come with us before they kill you!"

Jimmy

What a great list, a few of my favorites would also include The Birds, Jaws, The Shining and we can't leave Damian out.

debbie

I like the Shining and the Aliens movies! Great list.

Lynn

Love these, specially "The Shining"--as many times I've seen it it still gets to me. I also like "The Sixth Sense" and even though I knew about "Paranormal Activity" I totally got into that one too--

Michele

I watched Rosemary's Baby in 1968 as a 9 year old because my mom wouldn't see it alone. She loves those scary/creepy movies but can't watch them by herself and dad hated them. Scared the crap out of me.

DM Wright

What a great list! There are some scary movies in there! My list would include Paranormal Activity. I don't know what it is about that one but it scared me to death!

You've nailed it! I've seen a couple of similar lists running around, but this one is far better from the rest. From the 20 you've listed i've seen about 15, so there's still more to be done.

Aliens with a "s". Sigourney Weaver's Ripley is just such a kick-ass. And I love the Space Marines she's running with, and the whole mother-protecting-her-young thing that Ripley develops when she finds little Newt. "Get away from her, you BITCH!" But I have to agree with Jimmy that when that thing bursts out of John Hurts chest in the first one...HOLY SHIT!!
