I have recently discovered there’s a fundamental flaw in my marriage. One I hadn’t anticipated when I met, fell in love and married by beloved. Now, 17 years after our first date, I’m finding that he’s not the man I need, at least not in terms of movies. You see, I LOVE horror movies. And he does not.
I’m not a big fan of the slasher, for the sake of it horror flicks like Halloween or I Know What You Did Last Summer. I prefer something a little more classic and something totally more disturbing. I love vampires and genetic mutants and monsters of all kinds. I want to see them eat, manipulate and terrify the characters in a film. But I also know, that often, people are the scariest monsters of all.
Unfortunately, no one will go see these movies with me. My children are too young, my husband to much of a girl, and my friends tend to be more into seeing the next Twilight Movie (which I’ll totally see, but still!) So what happens? I end up sitting in my basement alone, late at night, trying to talk the dog into getting on the couch and protecting me from the things that go bump in the night.
And I love every minute of it.
So here are my top 10 movie pics. You may not agree that they are all scary, but they all sure as hell crept into my brain and laid babies that continue to squiggle around in my mind, leaving me to think of them at the worst times, like at night, when I’m home alone, and someone left the shower curtain closed!
