What's Your Favorite Scary Movie?

As fall descends upon us, I like to curl up with a scary book or a scary movie. I love scary movies, but the old-fashioned simple horror type, maybe even a little cheesy (as you might see from some of my choices below!) I do not like human centipedes or houses on the left, if you get what I'm saying. I like psychological horror over pure torture. Scare me, yes, but let there be a point if you are going to cross any lines. I like to be scared, a little freaked out, but not scarred for the rest of my life, thank you very much. I am a sensitive soul.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite scary movies, in no particular order, of course.

The Descent
(I cannot remember ever being so scared in a movie theater. My adrenaline was pumping throughout this movie!)

The Grudge

(Is this considered horror? Well, it was scary.)

I Know What You Did Last Summer

The Dawn of the Dead

The Silence of the Lambs

Pan's Labyrinth

The Ring


The Sixth Sense

And there you have it! I'm sure I missed some.

As for books, you can't go wrong with Stephen King, in my humble opinion. But fall breeds a plethora of good books, scary or not, so there is rarely a drought!

I'm currently diving into The Night Circus.

Do you have any scary movie suggestions for the season? Any good book suggestions out there?

  1. I LOVE this new look. I mean it. Title/subtitle is totally

    Read anything by Stephen King, especially 'Salem's Lot if you never have. And Netflix an old movie called Event Horizon. Scariest thing I have ever seen.

    So happy to 'see' you!
