On scary movies

As my birthday was last week I allowed myself to be dragged into this whole Halloween craze. Not too much, but a bit. I went to the Web and searched for list with rankings in the mood of top 50 scary movies. Why? Just to see perhaps I have missed something. Well, I have. So I spent last 10 days watching thrillers.

And honestly? It is difficult to make a good thriller. So far I liked The Exorcist (of course ;-), The Ward was OK (though predictable), I really enjoyed Invasion of the Body Snatchers (there's something awfully fascinating in classical B&W sci-fi movies from '60s), I was disappointed with The Signs (again - too predictable), the really worst one (so far) was The Ruins. Was positively surprised by The Fire in the Sky, though this one is hardly a thriller... I also really enjoyed The Fourth Kind.

Oh yeah - I do not like gore movies, so I skipped on the Midnight Meat Train, all episodes of The Saw, Hostel, Frailty and the like. I prefer ghost / daemons / aliens... Meat is just yuck...

The funny thing is - there are 13 more movies in the pipeline... Including Omen, Rosemary's Baby, In The Mouth Of Madness and many, many others...

Boogy Boogy Boogy...
