My 3 Favorite Scary Movies Of All Time: Jeff Bond 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!



If you ever have read a Facebook blast about CCD, or ever read an article here at CCD for that matter, than you have probably witnessed some of Jeff Bond's handywork firsthand. When I started this site, I had a convo with Jeff. He told me that he loved what I was doing, and he wished he could do a site like CCD but he knew that he didn't have the dedication to be consistent. I told him that there were many other ways he could help... and all he has done is anything I have ever asked him and more. JB has become my right hand here at CCD... he ran the blog when I was on vacation, he posts and edits if I can't get to a computer, he comes up with some great posts himself (Lost show recaps, Lego Iconic, Like?Like!) and suggests most of the ideas that I later convert into stories via emails to me beforehand. CCD is getting pretty large right now, and its mostly do to the hard work of guys like Jeff (and the rest of my CCD crew... oh, and me... lol!) With no more time to waste, I bring you the Mad Doctor of CCD Jeffrey Bond's 3 Scariest Movie pics... gosh these are good!!!


SE7EN (1995): One of my top 5 films of all time. It's not your regular horror film and some even think of it as more of a 'crime thriller' than straight out horror (probably because it's so well written and stars some of the top talent of our generation) If you haven't picked up on it's horror elements within the first 20 minutes, once a swat team enters a room with a corpse on a bed and millions of pine tree air fresheners attached to the ceiling you know this isn't going to be a run in the mill suspense tale. I may have seen this film just as many times as the original 'Halloween' and 'Friday the 13th' by now. and I'll be watching it again before the holiday season is up.




Trick R' Treat (2007): Hearkens back to the old style of 80s horror. Kinda light-hearted at times even though there's some scenes that are pretty gosh darned scary. The short stories reminded me a little of something straight out of an old 'Creepshow' or 'Twilight Zone the Movie' film ...but in this case are interwoven in a great way. I would have chosen a classic instead of this one...but, I'm happy to include this one in on the list. It makes me feel like the kind of horror I grew up with could have a place in today's society if done right...done exactly like this!



Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981): Originally a 'made for TV' so it works more with suspense (my type of horror film) than blood and gore. This one pulls some ideas from the original 'Frankenstein' and does something neat with it. Bubba (the main character) is actually a bit of the hero although he would give me nightmares for years after I originally saw it in the late 80's. If you've seen this one before, the mere mention of the phrase "Bubba didn't do it....BUBBA DIDN'T DO IT!" will send chills down your back!
