I used to have a postcard with the name on it, and yes it was a longer card than normal!

  1. I’m no horror buff, I don’t even enjoy horror (any more), but as a youth? I reveled in it. And my top pick is Halloween (1970s version). Creepiest damned film I’ve ever watched and I’ve seen plenty. Hubby liked horror, his son liked horror, so by osmosis I saw a lot of it, even if I’d cover my eyes and sometimes even leave the room if it got too creepy. I’ll look forward to your list! 😀

    1. I can totally relate to Halloween the orginal Melanie, creeped me out in the days when l loved the genre! Donald Pleasance was just creepy never mind bloody Michael LOL!

      The music was cringingly scary too!

  2. I loved old hammer house of horror stuff!! That was the best fun in my teens!
    In no particular order, just as they come to mind
    The Skeleton Key
    A Nightmare On Elm Street
    The Omen
    Rosemarys Baby
    The Babbadook
    The Evil Dead
    Carrie
    The Fly
    Poltergeist
    American Werewolf in London
    Don’t Look Now
    The Birds
    Warlock
    I can’t think of any more without getting up and going and looking at my dvd collection!!

    1. Great collection! Especially The Skeleton Key, Carrie, Poltergeist, American Warewolf in London, and The Birds!!! I also just remembered The Wicker Man. Nice post Rory! Britchy- Love your list!!!

      1. My best friends and my idea of a brilliant Saturday night was a big bottle of Coca Cola and as much crisps and chocolate as we could carry! Her brother would always bring home kebabs after he’d been out to the pub and then spend the rest of the night scaring the crap out of us. Those were such great times 😊

  3. Oh let’s see….

    Omen, The Birds, Poltergeist, Candyman, The Shining, The Exorcist, Creepshow, Salem’s Lot, The Hunger, American Werewolf in London, The Witch, Nightmare on Elm Street, Phantasm, Final Destination, The Ring.

    1. Woo hoo, hey Cherilyn, l can tell you like your Horror as a genre, some real popular goodies in there, but also some great extras to boot.

      Phantasm is an oldie indeedy, l went to see that when it first came out, brain digging blood squirting steel balls – awesome!

      Yes of course the Final destination lot, and who and how can we forget The Ring! Makes me think of The Grudge – and yes of course we mustn’t forget The Witch – excellent selection of macabre goodies 🙂

      1. Actually, its not a favorite genre lol, but one I will watch with much trepidation. Some of them have funny stories to go along with them. Candyman for instance…saw it at a friends house and for the longest time afterward I could not bring myself to shut a bathroom door. I once made the mistake of watching the Exorcist on video, at home alone, with 7 cats, with the lights off. I don’t recommend that. Final Destination I watched with friends, and by the end of it, me, my boyfriend and two guy friends were literally huddled up together, just about in each other’s laps. And after watching the Ring, I decided I didn’t really want or need my TV anymore and gave it away to some friends lol.

  4. Doctor fives movies those are old one’s, I have more not so popular ones if I can remember the names of them, Children in the corn.

    BY FOR NOW

    1. Good ol’ Vincent Price Dawn – he who knew how to creep one out – in fact that makes me think that Vincent needs a call out, l shall tag you too 🙂

      Plus Children of the Corn seriously creepy kids out of control 🙂

  5. Okay, if we’re doing lists, here’s my top … few. As mentioned I don’t watch that crap unless forced. It sticks with me somehow… 🙁

    The Prophecy
    ANY of the “Saw” movies
    The Wolfman (circa 2010)
    Really – Anything with Anthony Hopkins or Christopher Walken as a villain
    Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
    The Ninth Gate
    Thirteen Ghosts
    Stigmata
    Angel Heart (the uncut version)
    Shutter Island (although I found it fascinating more than gory)
    and of course Halloween (the 1970s version) as mentioned before

    1. 13 Ghosts [original 1960 or the 2001 version]
      Excellent List Melanie – some real goodies in there, and of course Hopkins and Walken have been in their fair share as well. Stigmata an excellent choice, The Wolfman another classic updated with favourites of mine Hopkins and Blunt and Angel Heart with Mickey rourke 1987, l saw uncut in the cinema, a nasty scene or two to be had 🙂

      1. I remember watching the VHS tape of Angel Heart in my house and being so frightened by it that I couldn’t sleep for three nights after. The rest of the list (besides Halloween) I saw with Hubby (except Sweeny Todd. That one was briefly viewed — I liked the cast) and turned off. Too gory by far!

    1. Hey Horror Fanatic – totally agree, the acting was deplorable 🙂 A Bit like The Hills Have Eyes, but the premise and principal of those stories were excellent, and okay noted for the list 🙂

      Thanks 🙂

  6. Would have to add in The Shining, Poltergeist and The Ammityville Horror all of which gave me nightmares for days after watching them. My parents warned me not to go and see them but did I listen? Sadly no. xx

    1. Ah yes Event Horison is a good movie Dawn – Sam Neill and Laurence Fishburne – excellent 🙂

      Piranha – there was two of those wasn’t there, l have seen both, and rated the first one as the better one, not so much the second one with that silly penis special effect with was laughable 🙂 But the 1978 was better 🙂

  7. I had Event horison in my DVD collection tell it got ruand with a tone of other movies last year.
    The one I’m thinking of I think it was the first one.

    There is another good one that I can’t remember the name of, it’s a demon that comes to life every 50 years and I uses people’s body parts to replace it’s own it’s chased by a farmer and his teen son that evencwaly stop it it’s a really creepy demon that has these webed like feet that raps around it’s head, maybe you can remember the name of it it’s from the 80’s.

  8. I forgot The Hitcher with Rutger Hauer. That man is terrifying on a good day and that film still haunts me. We had an incident with a scary truck driver a few years back and I can’t help but thinking it on long drives!

  9. Now here’s a topic I can get into – anything and everything HORROR!! Although I have to admit I don’t really find horror movies ‘creepy’ or ‘scary’. I don’t really spook easily.

    I would immediately have to say somewhere on that list should be the original ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ movie. It is a definite classic in my opinion. Plus Freddy is a total badass slipping into the nightmares of others, depriving them of a good night’s rest, tormenting them in hilariously wicked ways, etc.

    I’d put the original IT on there as well. Although, surprisingly enough I really enjoyed the first part of the remake (second isn’t out yet), the original is just classic. Tim Curry really brought the character of Pennywise to life.

    When I have more time, I may have to revisit this to list more… compile a list of ‘creepier’ movies for the faint of heart.

    1. Hey Jane,

      Well for the first two choices good work. Original Nightmare was a work of genius. I haven’t seen the IT remake, but l did see the original which was truly excellent and oddly enough your vote for it, is the first.

      I shall be writing about IT briefly in the next couple of days also.

    1. Hey Ellie, indeed Nightmare is really populour for the simple fact of its depth digging insidiousness 🙂 The Hitcher is a good film, but can still work some nasty magic on the imagination too 🙂
