While fishing through Halloween Central on ew.com, I came across their list of the 5 scariest Halloween movies ever! The number 1 scariest movie ever, was said to be "The Shining", in the year 1980 starring our favorite Jack Nicholson!
The 2nd movie chosen was 1973 "The Exorcist".
The 3rd scariest movie was 1974 "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre".
The 4th movie picked is 1991 "The Silence of The Lambs".
The #5 scariest movie choice was 1975 "JAWS".
And as I was moving along in my quest to find the scariest movies ever, I came across the following 5 from a site called suite101.com. Here is their list:
#1 "The Exorcist"
The 2nd movie of choice was l978 "Halloween".
The number 3 movie was 1984 "Nightmare On Elm Street".
Then came #4 with 1979 "The Amityville Horror".
Bringing up #5 scariest movie is 2004 "Saw".
Well, those are pretty good lists. But how about the old "Dracula" and "Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman"? Those movies were scary to me! I know, technology, and sound and visual effects have come so far since the 1950's! I've tried to move up and outward! I really can't name the SCARIEST MOVIE EVER that I've seen, but I can come close. The movie "Salem's Lot" written by Stephen King made me sit up and take quick breaths-I would get up every few minutes, leave the room, and then peek around the corner to see if it was safe to go back into the living room. I couldn't even finish watching it, and had to I had to wait a few more years during a bright sunny day, before I could watch it to the end. And later, "Nightmare on Elm Street" put me on the edge of the couch within the first 2 minutes of the film. That's what I get for listening to my son, who was 10 years old at the time-he said it was a pretty cool movie-he had watched it at a friend's house. I hadn't heard much about the movie, so I rented it. I came unglued! And, again, I'm up and down, leaving the room-couldn't watch all of it. It took me a few years to get through that entire movie and I know I can never watch it again.
*** So YOU tell me! What is the SCARIEST movie you've ever seen? ***
And this is what Mark Twain has to say about that!
"Everyone is a moon and has a dark side, which he never shows to anybody."
