HAUNTOVER Begins! Top Five Classic Horror Movies!


      The month we all know an love is here and no, I do not mean, December.       It's October because then you know one thing is coming: Halloween!               Halloween is one of my favorite months and I am not saying this because I     like to dress up as a sexy nurse or a sexy cop and parading around the           neighborhood nor do I enjoy adding 'spooky' to my Twitter @ name. I enjoy     all the creepy movies that are going to be released and going out with my
    friends and watching them. 

    Most websites go over and over every year in October about which movies       are the best of the best and they're usually titled: TOP FIVE HORROR 
    MOVIES OF ALL TIME. I shouldn't talk like that though because I am sort of
    doing the same, but each day I will TRY to come up with some sort of  
    genre of horror and list what movies are good. By different genres I mean:
    psychological thrillers, super gory horror, paranormal horror, home invasion
    horror, etc, etc. And so in the coming days, I will actually be posting every
    day. 
    
    To begin, we will talk about the classic horror movies that made you fear 
    life itself when you were a kid. They are from just about every genre of           horror and these were the movies movies that made me check under the
    bed at night, but remember, this is my opinion. Not, feel free to disagree
    or not, but here, we go.

    1.  Scream (1996)
We all know Scream. Well, let's hope we all know about Scream, but for those who do not: It is about a girl who's mother was recently murdered who is surrounded in a town where people are being killed left and right. I find this to be one of my favorite classic horror movies not only because it's entertaining, but its is genuinely one of the only movies I know to make fun of the genre while still being actually entertaining. It knows who the audience is and appeals to those who just want to see a scary movie and those who want to see a GOOD scary movie.

2. Happy Birthday To You (1981)
I know I am going to mention this movie again for another segment, but I really enjoy this movie. Most people haven't seen it, but this is a classic slasher movie. It's campy and has a great horrific atmosphere, but I must admit that it is a bit silly. But it was made in 1981, so I have to give it some slack. The movie starts off great though, and it just keeps going and going until the very end. The end, I must say, is fucking crazy. Well, written and rounded. It's a must see for Halloween.

3. Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Long ago, I saw this movie and it stuck with me. It was one of the first movies I saw that dealt with the premise of "reality" vs "daydream" and that was interesting. Freddy has become a character I know and movie throughout the years because he's witty, he's creepy, but at the same time, I want to give him a big hug. His character is so in depth and intriguing and he is one of the first horror figures to do that, which is why I consider this to be a classic. However, it does have many problems which is why it isn't higher on the list.

Poltergeist was one of the first "ghostly" movies I saw and my favorite thing about it is that it is so simple. There's not much to the movie, just a family in a house and crazy shit starts happening, which sounds so been-there-done-that, but this movie does that plot well. The acting, the lighting, the story, it is all great, but ghost movies are really my thing, but if you enjoy these kinds of movie. I encourage you. Go see this!

No matter how many movies featuring this guy come out, I will forever watch them. This one is a must watch for Halloween because IT'S FRIDAY THE 13TH! Jason Voorhees is a great character, but I must say he is a whiny little thing. I mean, it's upsetting he died, but to kill generations upon generations of kids at a summer camp. I mean, seriously, can someone say, "Issues!"




    I think that will be all from me about classic horror for the day and so, have    great day/night. Wherever you are!
