New Meaning To the Term Ass to Mouth..

I love a good scary movie. I watch them alone. I watch them with the lights out. I can sleep fine afterwards. 99% of my DVD collection is all horror. The Others, Stir of Echos, Texas Chainsaw Massacre (old and new). I really havn't met one I don't like. I like em cheesy, I like em gory, I like em psychological...I like them all!

I own all the classic box sets, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street.

But once in a while, one just doesn't sit right with me. I can count on one hand the movies that have done this:

1) The Hills Have Eyes remake#1 they make you love that family and what happens to them is horrific. The mutant nursing? WRONG!

2) The Strangers the part that replays in my mind is the end after being terrorized for hours.. when Liv Tyler asks "why are you doing this?" and the creepy girl says "because you were home" aaaaaaaack!

3) Event Horizon which isn't the least bit scary, but for that one scene when the ship plays the video from "hell". Yea I kinda played that over in my mind a lot.

4) Rosemary's Baby mostly because I saw this as a kid, and when she is raped by the devil, it just creeped me out!

Now...the Human Centipede can be added to the list. Was it scary? Not to me. Was it creepy, yes, a little bit. Was it disturbing? Oh... hell yes! The whole time you are watching this wondering...what the fuck would I do? I can tell you one thing, it would probably involve my slitting my throat or something, because I could not live my life that way!

I am exactly opposite you. Gross. The movies I like best are the ones I see with my 12-year-old nephew and 9-year-old niece. No scary for me, thank you! I watched the trailer, and now I'm going to have to medicate myself to get to sleep tonight!

oh i like those too, like "up" and "cloudy with a chance of meatballs". I just love the adrenaline and the hope you get that the hero will get away in a scarey movie!

This one though..takes the cake! lol

I read the title to the blog and thought you were talking about a Kevin Smith movie. I still crack up when I hear Pillow Pants.

Had to come back to this post because the Strangers are on FX so I just HAVE to watch it and of course noone's home!

I love scary movies and most are pretty disappointing but Hills Have Eyes really got to me.

Up made me ball like a baby!
