30 DAY HORROR MOVIE CHALLENGE

Day 21 - best horror franchise

Scream - 1996-2011

I wasn’t quite sure how to choose this one, so I opted to go with the franchise in which I enjoyed all of the movies in the series instead of most of them (such as Aliens series except Resurrection). I’ve been an avid love of Scream since the 1st movie came out. Although the sequels don’t compare to the original it’s a series that has remained true to it’s core story telling. You can also thank Scream for reviving the horror/slasher genre that saw a huge decline in the late 80’s/early 90’s.

If you didn’t think “Shia LaBeouf” could get better, you were wrong.

I literally can’t believe this exists there are tears in my eyes that I don’t remember crying

I laughed so hard that my mum came in and I had to show her and then she laughed A LOT 

This is possible one of the best things I’ve seen in a long time.

30 DAY HORROR MOVIE CHALLENGE

Day 20 - favorite horror character

"The Alien" from Alien - 1979

The above alien is from Alien vs Predator which wasn’t a good movie, that aside it took me a moment to really think about this one. The Alien franchise is one of my favorite movie franchises and it’s all about Ripley and The Alien. I’ve seen one of the life size suits of this thing and it’s massive and I definitely wouldn’t want to encounter this anywhere.

Day 19 - best use of gore

Tucker and Dale vs Evil - 2010

This movie is iconic and I’m quite surprised it hasn’t caught on guess it’s a bit of a cult movie in that regard. I don’t tend to watch gory movies so this is about as close to gory as I’m going to get. It’s a great horror comedy and the gore just plays in the comedy of the film.

Day 18 - favorite horror movie filmed in black and white

Night of the Living Dead - 1968

It’s a classic and launched the zombie as we classically know it. I don’t really have much more to add to this. It’s a classic you should see it. The colorized remake is good too but watch the original first. Did you know that due to a slight error this movie is in public domain?

Day 17 - favorite 80’s horror

Nightmare on Elm Street - 1984

What can I say, I love Freddy. Granted I still prefer his darker character aspect from the 1st film versus his more wise cracking aspect from later sequels. The one thing I love about the Elm Street series is just the terrifying aspect of who Freddy is and how he kills. You can’t prove that it was him or that it wasn’t. How can you stop someone who kills you in your dreams? Sure they always find ways to stop Freddy but how can you really stop fear?

Day 16 - horror film with a great soundtrack

The Craft - 1996

At first I wasn’t sure what it meant with soundtrack. So I began to think of movies with memorable theme songs like Nightmare on Elm Street or Halloween. Then I just thought of which movie had a phenomenal soundtrack. So that lead me to The Craft aka every song/band that got me through my angsty highschool years. Seriously this is one of the best movie soundtracks out there. Good movie they just don’t make them like this anymore. Honorable Mention: The Crow
