When The Exorcist was re-released into theaters, the younger people in the audience laughed at it.
I laughed out loud for a good 15 minutes when I first saw The Exorcist
back in 2003 when the 'crucifix scene' played. How did that movie ever scare anyone?
A good horror story doesn't need any blood-just a ratcheting up of the tension to the point where your head feels like its going to explode. This was a good example, IMO. Another that got to me was Ghost Story with Fred Astaire. By the last scene I was crawling out of my skin. I don't even bother watching Saw or the Jason movies, etc. It's not really horror, IMO, just some graphic killing. Where's the entertainment in that?
I saw Ghost Story
not too long ago. It bored the Hell out of me. Seeing Alice Krige buck naked and fooling around was pretty nice, though.
Well, if you want to creep the hell out of me it has to be something with clowns or insects.
, Killer Klowns from Outer Space
(a lost classic, IMO), Them
, perhaps a few others.
