The only horror movie that ever really, truly scared me was the original Alien
. As best as I can remember, it's also the only movie I've ever left before the end.
I grew up watching monster flicks but Alien
got to me. I knew that vampires, ghosts, and werewolves were all make-believe, but I believed that were aliens out there somewhere.
I love Halloween, The Exorcist, The Omen, Creepshow
, all of Romero's "of the The (Living) Dead"... I could keep typing all night here.
Oh, and add me to the list of fans of Exorcist III.
I just hope that one day we get to see the director's cut without the tacked on exorcism.
