Scary Movie Marathon






Every year in October, Gabe and I have many scary movie nights with popcorn, hot chocolate, and lots of candy. We started over the weekend with Sleepy Hollow (thanks to Marcie for the recommendation) and The Omen, which were both creepy enough to make me scared of the dark for a few days. Next on the list is Halloween, Carrie, Rosemary's Baby, and Psycho. And if we have time after that we'll watch Seven yet again because it's my favorite scary movie ever. What are your favorite scary movies?

I don't really do scary movies because I'm a wimp, but off the top of my head, I remember being deliciously scared when I watched Cape Fear.

I love the idea of movie marathons except for the scary part! I think after watching 'It' and 'Candy Man' at a ridiculously young age, I've been hesitant to watch creepy movies even now that I'm all grown up. In fact, I stay away from haunted houses too. Ha :) How lame am I?

It's been years since I last watched Carrie but that IS scary... just that picture spooks me out! Um what about that film with Jack Nicholson, what was it called... The Shining..? Now that's also a favourite.

I can not watch scary movies! I used to when I was a kid b/c my 7th grade bff was (and still is) obsessed with them. But I find they give me the kind of anxiety I can really live without. Especially considering the fact that I live by myself!! My imagination gets carried away and then I have nightmares...blah, blah, blah I know..SO LAME. During halloween I love to have Harry Potter marathons! HA!! (i'm a total wimp!)

Scary movies.. are just too scary for me! But one I do watch, because I think its more creepy then scary is.. The Shining. But I still can only watch it in the day time... No nighttime scary please!

Legs said...

You are very brave. I cannot watch scary movies anymore.

Gabriel said...

SPOOOOOKYYY!!!I think the Exorcist is one of the scariest of all time, but maybe that's because I was a kid when I first saw it.

Katie said...

I'm way too much of a baby to watch scary movies. I cant even watch previews for them!

Shannon @ Sit.Relax.Gossip. said...

I used to love scary movies when I was younger, but once I saw the Mothman Prophecies it scared me off watching them ever again. If you haven't seen that one, check it out. And then please tell me it's scary so I don't feel like such a wimp!

Kara said...

Not my favorite genre. Plus how do you watch a scary movie more than once? The suspense is gone.

Erica said...

Me and Chris are scaredy cats, but we love watching anything by Tim Burton. I just might have to rent Seven this weekend. I forgot just how yummy Brad Pitt was in that movie ; )

georgia~gigi said...

Happy Tuesday Valerie! Oh, I know it is Halloween time, but I hate scary movies! I just can't do it! I haven't watched a scary movie since I was a teenager!
Hope you and Gabe have fun tho :)
Smoochies

Marcie said...

Love it, Val. I am so happy you liked Sleepy Hollow. I haven't seen Seven in years, but it is going on Netflix today. I am not sure I can stomach Rosemary's baby, but maybe, just maybe, I will try it out this year.

Great post!
Marcie

Lindsay said...

I can't do scary movies. I am a baby like that :(

Nikki said...

OMG I just had a flashback to my high school years, watching all these horror movies! I've seen them all and I love them. I feel like as I get older, I become more of a baby though. I watched Jaws for the first time recently, and couldn't be alone for hours.

Bren said...

I'm totally like Jamie! I can't watch scary movies either, but use to love them when I was in junior high! My idea of a scary movie now is Twilight! :D I'm a wuss!

elledee said...

I've never seen a lot of these. I love the idea of having an october scary movie marathon.

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

The Exorcist creeps me out.

Jen said...

I love the Saw franchise!! But se7en, now that was the movie!!

Moonlight Serenade said...

Se7en is the best! I love the three Scream movies. Can't wait for the new one :)

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

I loved Carrie, Rosemary's Baby & the Omen. Never saw Seven but have been meaning to. Probably this year :)

Jen Watts said...

my favorite is psycho....one scary movie that I've never been able to finish is the shining..for some reason it just scares me to death!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I am sooo not a scary movie person- even Scream scared the bejesus out of me LOL.

PS: Thanks for the crockpot recipe blog! I already found 1-2 I will def try :)

Taj Acosta said...

Ooh I'm getting scared just looking at these! I'm too much of a chicken to watch scary movies!

Daisy said...

I despise scary movies, but somehow I have seen most all of these. I love your tradition and my bf and friends celebrate in simmilar fashion with a scary movie marathon on halloween.

Torrie said...

It's funny because I grew up watching every scary movie in the book (my mom had no movie filter for us, with the exception of x-rated films). Her and my older brother dragged me to every movie possible.

But I stopped watching them altogether when I went through a little insomnia phase! I think I'm ready to start up again... slowly. In fact, we were just talking about how we think it's time for Jacob to see Poltergeist (a good starter for him and 'get-back-into-it' movie for me, right?). We watch Parenthood (w/ Craig T. Nelson), and realized that it's been years since we've seen this movie!

I love your tradition:).

Lyndsy said...

Seven and Carrie are soo scary. I also LOVE Scream, and any of those SAW movies although I watch them with my eyes closed usually. Chucky used to really freak me out as a kid.

Jess said...

I still love Scream ;) I've been wanting to see Seven too...

Betsey said...

oh this sounds like SO much fun! i love watching scary movies with other people. as cheesy as it is, 'when a stranger calls' always gives me the creeps! and 'vacancy' is SUCH a good one!!

Alicia said...

Scary movie marathons always sound fun to me around halloween, but then I remember how scared I get / how many nightmares I have afterwards... best for me to stick with happy / romantic chic flicks haha!

Emma said...

I love scary movie nights, my favorite scary film is hitchcock's psycho!

Josie said...

I just can't even do scary movies. Films from my childhood still scare me -- it doesn't get much worse than "Hocus Pocus" for me!

Mandy said...

I just watched Sleepy Hollow! Definitely one of m favorite scary movies. My other is the original Halloween; so campy, but oh so good :)

Elle said...

ohmygoodness I can't handle scary movies! I have such bad dreams - how sad though, this sound like fun!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Yay! Seven is one of my all-time fav movies! It's so good. I'm usually not a huge Brad Pitt fan but he looks SUPER hot in this film ;)
