Top 10 Horror Movie Quotes

Top 10 Horror Movie Quotes

Movie quotes from horror films can be easily recognizable, but also funny too, sort of like in jokes that only horror fans get, because some people may not know what you are on about if you said something like "When There's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth"

Movie quotes can be what is said in the film by a character or it could be a memorable tag line for the movie, so without further ado, here we go with our list of horror movie quotes....

1. Heeeeeeeerrrrreeesss Johnny! - The Shiningalways makes me laugh with Jack Nicholson's crazy ass two word quote of a madman with an axe trying to kill his Mrs and his son, nice one Jack!

2. I see dead people - The Sixth Sensewas a really great movie if no one told you the twist at the end that is, I hate it when people do that, it's like telling you the scores to a football game when you've waited all day to watch the replay, the boy in the movie played the part really well I thought with his eerie whispers of dead people and ghosties...

3. Be Afraid.....Be Very Afraid - The Fly - not only did this quote appear in the film, it was the movies tag line too and I remember seeing this film at aged 7 and saying mummy what happened to the monkey? some of the creature effects and gore still stand up today against current horror movies prosthetics and it's a favourite of mine, the fly 2 not so much, but hey...

4. There heeeeere! Poltergiest - although not a straight horror film, but except the part when this bloke dreams about pulling his face off after eating maggoty chicken drumsticks, I like the first film, the second one too with the scary reverend and the third one was just average.

5. Now, What are you dirty whores doing on our planet? - Bad Taste- Such a classic horror comedy from Peter Jackson that took 4 years to complete and I have fond memories of this film as it had a whole roll of one liners and quotes that I could fill up a whole hubpage on one day!

6. I kick arse for the lord! - Dead Alive/Braindead- Another classic Peter Jackson zombie comedy which was a right laugh as we see a vicar teaching some local youths a lesson in kung fu...hahaha brilliant!

7. Braaaaaaiiiinnnsss! - Return of the living dead- Were we see the dead coming back to life after the release of a green vapour on a local graveyard, another classic zombie film, even the sequels I like em too.

8. How are those maggots? maggots michael you're eating maggots, how do they taste? - The Lost Boys - Classic 80's vampire film that they tried to bring back a bit of gimmicky nostalgia by bringing out a sequel which was lamer than my fish doing martial arts! It has the tiger fin style of martial arts!

9. I am the eater of worlds - Stephen Kings IT- Pennywise the Clown also says they all float which just makes me laugh and thing of doing a hurly burly turd in a swimming pool and watching it float like a log, but of course Pennywise is talking about dead bodies floating in the sewers!

10. What's in the box? David Finchers Seven- Such a quote right at the end of a film and a classic one too as we realise the final twist in the story for that film, it has also been added as a throw away gag line in the Supernatural series too and every time I hear someone say What's in the box I always have a little chuckle.

Cheers now! That's one hell of a direct quote you got there, seen all the Saw films and hopefully the 3D one will be the last, because they all are becoming predictable now, although still good though!

Hello Michael, I want to play a game. So far in what could loosely be called your life you've made a living watching others. Society would call you an informant, a rat, a snitch. I call you unworthy of the body you possess, of the life that you've been given. Now we will see if you are willing to look inward rather than outward to give up the one thing you rely on in order to go on living. The device around your neck is a death mask. The mask is on a spring timer. If you do not locate the key in time the mask will close. Think of it like a venus flytrap. What you are looking at right now is your own body not more than two hours ago. Don't worry, you're sound asleep and can't feel a thing. Taking into account that you are at a great disadvantage here I'm going to give you a hint as to where I've hidden the key, so listen carefully. The hint is this... It's right before your eyes. How much blood will you shed to stay alive, Michael? Live or die, make your choice.

saw-there's some great quotes there...

"last night i went o my bed in my s**thole apartment, now i have woken up in an actual s**thole.

Cheers for those welshbard the classic horror movies, even though King Kong I wouldn't class as a horror, more like a love story of a big gorilla and a blonde lass!

"I never drink...wine" Dracula 1931

"Twas Beauty killed the beast." King Kong 1933

"It's alive, It's alive...IT'S ALIIIVVVE!!!" Frankenstein 1932
