  1. I have seen all of those except Midsommar. Not a fan of The Birds, as it didn’t scare me at all. And Rod Taylor was a hopeless actor. I never understood why he got so many roles. The Babadook was a huge disapointment for me. I wrote a review of it on my blog telling everyone why I didn’t like it. Most people love it though, so maybe it’s just me. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. By the way, the film that scared me the most was ‘Ringu’, the original Japanese film, not the sequels or remakes. I have never watched it again. πŸ™‚

  3. Several on there I like a lot: The Birds, of course, Shaun of the Dead, American Werewolf in London–so much fun–and, yeah, The Thing.
    Definitely have to look into some of the other ones we have NOT seen. A lot of them!

    Hey, did you happen to see and/or like these: Mama, 30 Days of NIght, Hereditary (maybe the ending kinda sucked, but 3/4ths really good, and of course, Toni Collette…need I say more?) The Witch, The Lighthouse (if you don’t mind feeling like you’re on mushrooms) and The Sixth Sense (even though I hate everything else he ever did, lol)

  4. I recently watched Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer again. It’s a fantastic movie. First time I saw it I was amazed at how good it was, but so deeply disturbed by it that I vowed I would never watch it again. This time, it wasn’t as disturbing. Still great.

  5. What makes Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer so disturbing lies in it’s refusal to treat it’s serial killer with sympathy or camp value. In other words, the complete opposite of the vastly overrated Silence of the Lambs. Anyway, thanks for dropping by πŸ™‚

  6. Sixth Sense is good, I need to rewatch Mama and 30 Days of Night though. I do love Hereditary, The Witch and The Lighthouse though πŸ™‚ Anyway, thanks for dropping by πŸ™‚
