Oh yeah… Halloween

October 31, 2005


I am now going to creep myself the hell out by watching Poltergeist by myself (the cats don’t count) in the (mostly) dark.

Was out to dinner with previously mentioned pretty boy and we were discussing scary movies. He scoffed at Poltergeist AND the original Halloween. “Have you ever seen them?” I asked. “Um, no.” Spuh.

Other movies that still freak me out:

— The Exorcist
— Poltergeist II (that old guy is just wrong!)
— The Ring and The Grudge (Japanese originals – the Japanese have a serious monopoly right now on the BOO! and oh-my-god-she’s-crawling-out-of-the-goddamn-tv factor)

Movies that don’t freak me out any more but I still love to watch them:

— Suspiria (great fucking cinematography and color design)
— Blair Witch Project (but only once every couple of years or I laugh too hard)

I’m sure there are others, but my slightly-wine-addled brain can’t quite recall them at the moment.

Hey – did you know Poltergeist was written by Spielberg?

You learn something new every day….
