My Favorite Scary Movies

1. Hostel: College students from America go to Europe to tour and have a good time and a vacation but, they should have stayed in their own land or they should have done more research into the area that they were about to visit. The Elite Hunting Club is very unique and not your typical type of club. They do not value life at all and they use humans to satisfy their crazy fantasies. In the end, the humans are killed in whatever manner seen fit by the one paying.

2. Last House on the Left (remake): Criminals have shot a family's daughter and left her for dead but, now they are stuck in the home of the girl's parents. If you were a parent and had the opportunity to get revenge on your daughter's attempted killer, what would you do? This is a heart wrenching movie, that makes you think twice about what you would do if faced with that situation. It would be almost too tough of a situation, to just let the attempted murder walk around with the same rights and freedoms that you do. It is difficult to know that the attempted killer is walking around free, and will go free, if you do not say or do something in defense.

3. Halloween Unrated: Rob Zombie did a scary job reinventing the killer Michael Myers. Myers is huge in this film and his violence is over the top so, if you are squeamish close your eyes. Zombie's music adds so much to the scenes where his music was played. Children should not be allowed to watch this by their parents. His music has a very dark side to it so, I think it is perfect for horror movies.

4. The Exorcist: The Exorcist is about a little girl who gets possessed by The Devil (himself). The hospital and the doctors have tried everything. Everyone that has an opinion of any kind has given it. Nothing has even come close to working. The most obvious and really only option remains which is a Priest and an exorcism. This is a truly scary movie. Knowing that this really happened, makes this movie harder to watch.

5. Devil Inside: This film focuses on a woman who murdered three people while having an exorcism performed on her. The Catholic Church now has her put away in Rome. The movie shows lots of demonic sequences and an evil force taking over a lady. It is like an updated Exorcist film and it is worth watching.

6. Carrie: Stephen King written and John Carpenter directed, this film is about a troubled girl that has special powers. The ability to move objects with her mind. This movie is a favorite that withstands the test of time. This movie has been re-made.

7. Psycho: Psycho was Alfred Hitchcock at his best. Norman Bates runs a hotel but, there is one small problem. He dresses like his dead mother and kills the tenants. Norman Bates has two personalities. One is of his crazy mother and number two his character is a man child that runs the family business called, The Bates Motel.

8. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake): Leatherface and his family are the only ones left in a dead Texas town but, if your unlucky enough to drive through, drive fast. The unfortunate souls of the passersby, are killed by way of chainsaw or meat hook. The ones that are about to be killed realize their fate but, it's too late at that point .

9. Silence of the Lambs: Anthony Hopkins plays as Hannibal a cannibal killer who is hungry for another victim. The F.B.I. needs this psycho and his brain to catch another killer.

10. Friday the 13th: In the first of the series, Jason drowns in the lake and his mother comes to exact revenge on all the camp counselors at Crystal Lake. She said that the counselors were irresponsible and that weren't watching when Jason drowned in the lake.

11. Wrong Turn: The first of the four Wrong Turns is the best, in my opinion. These mutant, mountain men half breeds live in the woods in West Virginia. If you make a wrong turn in these parts you will be cut in parts.

12. I Spit on Your Grave: Several men hurt a woman and leave her for dead. There are four men that rape this poor girl and do horrible things to her. This girl has a very strong will to live and does not die. Now she is mad, very mad and she is determined to get even. She gets her revenge on each and every one of the men.

13. Hostel 2: In part two of the series three women get caught up in Amsterdam at the Elite Hunting Club. This is a very violent film. As with the first movie, anyone who enters The Elite Hunting Club must kill or be killed.

14. Dawn of the Dead (remake): This remake was made by George Romero just as the others were and it was scary indeed. One thing about the zombies in this film is that they are fast and they run.

15. 30 Days of Night: In Northern Alaska, the sun does not rise for thirty days during winter, which is the perfect chance for the vampires to kill the people and escape sunlight.
