Scary Thoughts

Saw an interesting questionnaire in my  Reader the other day.  I’m just now getting around to answering the questions posed by my man, Vinnie, but I’m glad to finally get to it.

His is a really fun site, and you should check it out immediately.  Lots of movie reviews and discussions about pop culture…and maybe even some butts!  You’ll have to see for yourself.

But anyway, here are his questions:

What is the first scary movie you recall watching?

I remember sneaking out of bed and into the living room.  I was maybe 4 or 5, not really sure, but my parents were still together so I couldn’t have been much older than that.  Anyway, they were watching “Rosemary’s Baby”.  I remember hiding out behind my dad’s chair and peeking around the edge to see the TV.  I only caught about 30 minutes before I was busted and sent back to bed, but it made an impression.

What for you is the scariest movie you have ever seen?

Not sure about this one.  I guess I’d go with “Halloween”.  The original.  That piano riff before he’d suddenly show up in the shadows?  Creepy as hell!  “The Shining” would be a close second.

Which sub-genre of horror is your favourite?(psychological/slasher/ comedy horror are just some to choose from)

I’ve always preferred the psychological ones, leaving things to the viewers’ imagination.

What does a horror movie need for you to enjoy it?

Suspense and a bit left to the imagination.  I think the overly obvious plot lines and/or gratuitous gore are mostly silly, predictable, and more comedy than horror.

Are there any horror movies you really detest?

The multiple sequeled ones are a bit much.  For example, the “Friday The 13th” series went about 6 rounds too far.

What is the sexiest scene you have witnessed in a horror movie?

This is a hard one…no pun intended.  The one that comes to mind initially is Mickey Rourke and Lisa Bonet in “Angel Heart”. Love that movie!

Who is your favourite antagonist in a horror movie?

Michael Meyers!

Is there any director that for you symbolizes the best in horror cinema?

I think I’ll go old school with this answer and say Alfred Hitchcock.  When I think of this genre, his name is what comes to mind first and foremost.

Blood and gore or creepy atmosphere?

Creepy, all the way.

And finally, what do you think so far of my horror coverage this month?

I think you’re doing a great job on the reviews and suggestions, as usual.  I look forward to more as we lead up to Halloween.


There you go, Vinnie.  And for anyone not familiar with his site, or who’d like to take part in the questionnaire, please drop by his page.  You won’t be disappointed.

  6. Thanks for doing this questionnaire. I really love your answers man. Halloween is an undisputed classic that still holds up so well today. Angel Heart, now that was one strangely sexy scene wasn’t it?

  7. Scary movies are too scary for me. I saw Hitchcocks the birds (the title was the birds in swedish, don’t know the original name for the film) when I was (too) young. I still remember it, but it doesn’t scare me anymore, but I thought a lot of that film afterwards for many years.

  8. Great answers. I put Kubrick but I could easily have said Hitchcock. The Shining had a big impact.

  9. I used to stay up to watch Hitchcock presents…I will never forget that one where a girl faked her own death to get out of jail and was buried alive! And the Shining? Flippin terrifying! I could only watch it the one time…

  11. I saw Silence of the Lambs last night, and it was a great movie. The acting and suspense was much better than most movies made today. I always enjoy the classics.
