The scariest movie for me has to be The Exorcist. Even thinking about it right now I am creeping myself out. Any movie that deals with being possessed or exorcisms I cannot shake off right away. I think they scare me so much because I firmly believe that possession is real and can happen. I remember seeing the Exorcist for the first time and I couldn't have been older than eight or nine. I was undoubtedly scared and probably had a few nightmares and slept with my parents (we all have done that at some point haha). However, every year around Halloween I would watch it, sometimes even alone, and I would get really scared but then be over it. Now that I am twenty-six, I refuse to watch that movie! I have no idea what happened to me but I cannot endure to watch it anymore! I find myself staying up all night and seeing things that aren't even there haha! Some other movies that really frighten me are: The Exorcism of Emily Rose, after seeing this movie in the theater at the age of eighteen I slept with my light on for days and had my mom sleep with me that same night.:) Amityville Horror, watched this one with one of my oldest and closest childhood friends when we were like eight years old and The Omen, especially now that I have a son, ahhhh!
My list can go on and on, but at any rate, I still like to enjoy some of the classics like Halloween, Carrie, and Psycho. I also feel as though horror films are a lot less scarier than they used to be. Do you agree/disagree? What are some of your favorite scary movies and stories? I would love to hear about them! Happy Halloween !
