Horror Films and Zombie cookies

Just putting the finishing touches on my zombie cookies: 1.0. Still have a lot of work to do to make them sparkle. Frosting is an art, it seems…  But on to today’s topic: The top ten horror films.  Have you seen them all? I don’t think I have. I’ve seen Psycho and that is definitely my top pick. I saw it when I was little and couldn’t force myself into a shower with a closed curtain for years. I still get that tightness between my shoulder blades.  I’ve seen both Carrie’s and wasn’t scared; maybe too much blood. It certainly brought back all that teen angst of not being asked to this or that.  The Shining movie doesn’t compare to the terror that the book engendered. Sure Jack was masterful but not that terrifying to me.  Aliens just ran last night and I didn’t yelp and jump once, scaring the dogs.  Halloween was pee down the leg scary when his mask comes into focus behind the girl.

I judge Rosemary’s Baby as just icky: a mom who won’t stand up for her baby? Really? Not in my world.  Night of the living dead was gritty and true to life. The horror without a good result. Loved it once but could never force myself to watch it again. Oh, the futility of the dark night only to be summarily snatched away by a red neck gun nut.  The birds is a good one. I never took the goodwill of the avians for granted after seeing it.

I have a fondness forever for black and white horror like Frankenstein.  I am still prone to mutter “It’s ALIVE.” on occasion in the lab. A Nightmare on Elm street is on my list for this year. What ones are the all too bright Mensans missing? Let me know, would you? I need a good scare, because the classroom just isn’t scary enough……
