For day 3 of Spooky Season, I wanted to do something simple. I’ve seen horror movie tags in various blogs and it looked like fun. Plus, now’s the perfect time to post my answers. I know I’m supposed to tag people for this, but if you guys want to do it, you should! I’d love to see your answers!
What is the first horror movie you remember watching?
The first horror film I remember watching was Bride of Chucky. My cousins let me watch it when I was around four years old. That movie sparked a huge fear of dolls that I didn’t overcome for years. Once I grew out of it, I watched Bride of Chucky at least 30 more times over the years.
What is your favorite horror movie?
For a long time, Scream was always my go-to answer for this question. After seeing IT: Chapter 2, I decided to change my answer. Since it’s one continuous story, I’m combining both chapters for my number 1 spot on my top 10 horror list. So, IT is my favorite horror movie!
What is your favorite horror movie sub-genre?
Undoubtedly, the slasher genre is my favorite! It’s the sub-genre with practical effects at its finest. Plus, back in the day, there was that mystery element that I absolutely loved. It’s always exciting trying to find out who the killer is in film. Though I mostly love being surprised, guessing the killer correctly is just as fun.
What sub-genre scares you the most?
I’d have to say demonic and ghost/possession films scare me the most. If I watch a demonic film, it will stay with me for days, maybe even weeks. Sometimes it’s the atmosphere, other times, it’s the look of the demon or ghost. Sometimes I’ll sit in the dark, remember a specific scene that frightens me, and scare myself from turning my back to the room. it’s pretty funny.
What is the last horror movie you watched that actually scared you?
The last horror film to actually scare me was probably The Nun. The creators of that film knew how to create a terrifying atmosphere, especially for a movie theater viewing. Even thinking about that beginning scene still creeps me out.
Who is your ultimate Scream Queen?
Danielle Harris will always be my favorite scream queen. She’s been a big part of the horror genre ever since she was little. She’s a hell of an actress and I hope she continues to be a part of the horror community.
What’s your favorite on-screen kill?
The first on-screen kill that comes to mind is from Hatchet (2005). Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder) grabs a woman’s head, grabs the top and bottom of her mouth, and splits her head in half. It’s very graphic and brutal. It’s also very well crafted with practical effects!
What’s your favorite horror franchise?
Whenever I answer this, I only choose franchises where I love every installment. On this basis, the Scream franchise is my only favorite franchise (tv series not included). The Saw franchise was also one of my favorites, but then Jigsaw (2017) was released and it really disappointed me.
Who’s your favorite horror director?
Now, that’s a very difficult thing to answer. It’s very hard to choose just one, so I’m just going to list a few of my favorites: Wes Craven, James Wan, Rob Zombie, Mike Flanagan, Andy Muschietti, John Carpenter, Jordan Peele, and Eli Roth.
