It's almost October and time for some good, scary movies. I'm looking forward to Let Me In, a remake of the excellent 2008 Swedish film Let the Right One In.

If you haven't seen the orginial, you can watch it on you tube here:



Not for the squeamish, but excellent. It won all kinds of awards. So far, the reviews of the remake are very good.

Freddy Krueger's movies (e.g "A Nightmare on Elm Street") are pretty scary. The Exorcist is one of the top ten for me.

I thought "The Devil's Advocate" with Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves was scarey. A good watch.

Side note........I think I've worked with a couple of health care administrators who have sold their souls to the devil.

I think "The Thing" (original 1951 version) was one of the scariest movies I saw as a kid. As an adult, the original "Alien" was pretty good.
I liked the new revision of "The thing" also, a good combination of
suspense and horror..

I don't like slasher movies much either.

Jaws is probably the scariest movie I've ever seen. Psycho and The Birds were really scary too.

For a really good time vampire movie that is scary and campy at the same time I recommend Fright Night. For the werewolf crowd there's An American Werewolf in London in the same genre.

I am an aficionado of vampire movies. I liked John Carpenter's Vampires a lot. Obviously all the old Draculas, sons, brides, and other family members. Martin was good, Near Dark was very good, The Last Man on Earth was great. Nosferatu was probably the best.
Sadly, the Buffy movie wasn't in the least bit scary, although it was highly entertaining.

"The Stepford Wives" was pretty scary.

The most scary I still think is an episode of Alfred Hitchcock that "Psycho" was based on. (They used the same house as Norman Bate's motel). That episode was about this nurse named Stella...of course in those Hitchcock episodes, a surprise ending.

I would consider this more Sci-fi but it's a great movie.
