Game Over Man, Game Over!

Ok Ghouls and Goblins. I’m back for another round of my favorite horror films.

Previously I talked about my favorite childhood horror films – which are still favorite films into my adulthood. But now that I’m “grown-up” I’ve discovered a new set of hauntingly good horror.

I can’t choose an order, though, so without further ado here are my favorite horror films.

Hellraiser

This movie is based on Clive Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart – which is a must read for any fan of horror. Pinhead is probably the most terrifying franchise movie villain to me (you know, out of Jason, Freddy, Chucky, etc..)

The Devil’s Rejects

This Rob Zombie flick is probably one of my favorite movies ever, horror or otherwise. The main characters have no redeeming qualities about them, and the ending is just epic. If you want to see the ending – go here. It is probably in my top 5 favorite movie endings of all time.

Cabin in the Woods

This is, of course, a newer film by Joss Whedon. I love it because Thor is in it, I mean Chris Hemsworth…I mean that’s not why I love it, it’s a great story! It looks like the standard dumb teenagers go camping movie, but it’s definitely got some interesting twists!

Saw

What I love about Saw is the fact that it was almost never-ending. When I was a kid i loved that there were a ton of Freddy, Jason, Michael Myers, Pinhead, etc films and Saw brought that type of franchise back, and with the exception of a few of those films (the last one.. UGH) they were really good.

Alien/Aliens

I don’t have anything wrong with any of the Alien franchise, but I think the first two are my favorite. I’d even go as far as to say I prefer the second. All because of Bill Paxton. “We’re in some real pretty shit now, man!”

Honestly, it’s hard for me to not like a horror film. I think that’s the good thing about the genre. The ones that are made well are amazing, the ones that flop turn into comedy hour. I find it just as fun to make fun of a bad horror as I do enjoying a good one.

I always find it a little sad when October is over – it does mean loads of turkey around the corner, but the weeks leading up to Halloween are always so much fun. I hope everyone had a great Halloween!

  1. Even though I’m not a horror fan, reading your posts about it (as well as other blogging posts around this time), is making me really want to check them out again. I’ve really seen very few. I must watch all your trailers and pick some…

    • I have had nightmares about Pinhead, that my husband was becoming friends with him and I kept yelling at him not to , that he just wanted to kill us and take us to Hell LOL, he woudl’t listen. Men, I swear!
