My 3 Favorite Scary Movies Of All Time: Cal From The Canadian Cave of Cool Edition
Ever since that scene in Scream where Ghostface asks Ms Barrymore that same question people have been asking each other it with regularity. Actually, I'm pretty sure they have been asking each other that since the beginning of film itself. Scary movies are just so easy to talk about... and so easy to form an opinion of. For many reasons they are the genre of movies that you can point to and say "Yup, these are the ones I LOVE!!!" In honor of CCD's 1st annual All Horror Week, we decided to highlight some of our contributors and friends 3 favorite scary/horror movies of all time. These may not be the best, but they are each person's FAVORITE, so these lists should be quite fun. Here we go!
Cal is a great friend of the CCD family and runs one of the all time best websites on the whole net... this guy keeps us coming back for more everyday. So what if he likes kittens, adores Selena Gomez, and hates octopi with every inch of his moral fiber... whats so strange about that? My man Cal is good peoples as far as I am concerned, so we wanted to include him in our CCD All Horror Week. He has contributed some excellent cat pics with captions pertaining to serial killers (they are hysterical!), and now he checks in with his 3 favorite scary movies. Live, from the tundra, here come Cal's picks:
The first SAW movie was hypnotic to watch. Totally original and actually plausible if someone was psycho and mad at you enough...plus after a hour of keeping me riveted to the screen you discover that Jigsaw was THERE THE WHOLE TIME!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991) - the unbelievable weight of dread hung over this movie. Not only was Buffalo Bill terrifying but knowing that all it took was a SINGLE PAPER CLIP to allow Lecter to escape was more than I could bear. Not only did he get out but he left his calling card behind. Anyone that smart and that many moves ahead of the authorities is terrifying to me.
The first HALLOWEEN. We all forget how few movies actually has a supernaturally evil and indestructible serial killer in them. This was the granddaddy of the all. The way his facial expression never changed and how he sat up when we thought the terror was over changed my life. I really try to avoid those kinds of movies to this day.
