I enjoy these personal opinion topics. This one came to my mind because lately, the “horror” movies that have been released REALLY SUCK, in my opinion. I mean, the topic already posted deals with the Blair Witch Project, and I thought that movie was a pile of garbage. The same with The Haunting. Also, movies like “Scream” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer” only exist for laughs, in my mind. I mean, if I want a good scare, I go for the old ones. My favorites are:
Stephen King’s IT (mini-series): Reading the book and seeing Tim Curry in this mini-series honestly freaked me out.
The Exorcist: Highly regarded as the best of all time. I don’t know if I entirely agree with that, but it was pretty damn good.
The Shining: It wasn’t a particularly “scary to the bone” movie, but the concept and the action building of both the movie and the book were well done.
The only difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.
