Why I Love It: As an aspiring writer and filmmaker, I find this film very inspiring. Not only that, the story of Tommy and Greg is very sentimental to me. My friend and I practically started our friendship watching The Room. James Franco absolutely killed it as Tommy! The first time I watched it, there were honestly a few times where I forgot it was Franco!

Favorite Scene: When Tommy had to repeat the same scene over a hundred times.

Why I Love It: This film has my favorite backstory of Dracula. I love the religious tie-in. I think it all made perfect sense, and it’s what makes the film different from other vampire movies. Plus, not only does it have a hell of a cast, I think Gerard Butler was a very underrated Dracula, he did fantastic with the role!

Favorite Scene: The final scene.

Favorite Quote:

Mary (Justine Waddell):He still loves you.

Synopsis (provided by A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators.

Why I Love It: This film has one of my favorite female cast ensembles. The creatures are so unique and terrifying. When you add the claustrophobia in the caves, and the deception between the characters, it makes the film even more thrilling. It’s a good horror film that makes you care about the characters and what’s happening to them!

Favorite Scene: When Beth (Alex Reid) tells Sarah (Shauna Macdonald) the lemon joke to calm her down.

Favorite Quote:

Sam (MyAnna Buring):Trying to set this watch is impossible, the buttons are too f***ing small.

Rebecca (Saskia Mulder):Then leave it alone.

Stars: Sean Pertwee, Kevin McKidd, Emma Cleasby, and Liam Cunningham.

Synopsis (provided by A routine military exercise turns into a nightmare in the Scotland wilderness.

Why I Love It: To start, I absolutely love the werewolves. They’re tall and terrifying beasts. Then, when they go up against trained soldiers, it’s truly an epic battle to watch! I also love the eerie, isolated setting in the woods, it really added to the severity. It’s intense, bloody, and when you think you have everything figured out, they throw more surprises at you!

Favorite Scene: When Sarge (Sean Pertwee) tells the story of Eddie Oswald.

Favorite Quote:

Spoon (Darren Morfitt): “I hope I give you the s***s, you f***ing wimp.”

Why I Love It: Bride of Chucky is just a really fun film to watch! The chemistry between Chucky and Tiffany is so entertaining. They don’t take any crap from each other and when you see these dolls have an all out brawl, it’s too funny. The film is a blast with an epic cast, unique kills, and definitely weird moments all around!

Favorite Scene: When Tiffany puts Chucky back together.

Favorite Quote:

Tiffany:Take it from me, honey. Plastic is no substitute for a nice hunk of wood.

Directed By: Daniel Attias

Stars: Gary Busey, Everett McGill, Corey Haim, and Megan Follows.

Synopsis: In a small town, a paraplegic boy, his sister, and their uncle must stop a ferocious werewolf from killing the residents.

Why I Love It: I’m a big fan of films set in a small town. There’s a sense of isolation, and there’s a bigger bond with the characters. This was an element that was beautifully perfected by Stephen King in his stories. I have to say my favorite thing about this film is Gary Busey’s performance. He was fantastic as Uncle Red! He really brought the humor and personality to the film. Another thing that stayed with me was the beautiful music. It’s so calming and pleasant. It was perfect for this movie!

Favorite Scene: When Uncle Red and Marty (Corey Haim) play cards.

Favorite Quote:

Herb Kincaid (Kent Broadhurst):Upset? Grief-stricken? You don’t know what those words mean. My son was torn to pieces. Pieces… my son was torn to pieces! You come in here and talk to these men about private justice? You dare to do that? Why don’t you go out to Harmony Hill, Sheriff Haller, and dig up what’s left of my boy Brady… and explain to him about private justice. Would you want to do that?! As for me, I’m gonna go out and hunt up a little private justice.

44. Black Christmas (1974)

Directed By: Bob Clark

Stars: Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and John Saxon.

Synopsis (provided by During their Christmas break, a group of sorority girls are stalked by a stranger.

Why I Love It: This film had a great combination of humor and creep-factor. All of the characters had real personality and they never skipped a beat in their scenes. I just love horror films set on Christmas. I have no idea why but the horror genre and Christmas work so well together. Margot Kidder (Barb), Marian Waldman (Mrs. Mac), and Doug McGrath (Nash) were the ones who really stole the show.

Favorite Scene: Barbara’s Death Scene.

Favorite Quote:

Lt. Ken Fuller (John Saxon):Nash, I don’t think you could pick your nose without written instructions.

Directed By: Keenen Ivory Wayans

Stars: Anna Faris, Marlon Wayans, Shawn Wayans, and Regina Hall.

Synopsis (provided by A group of teens are tricked by Professor Oldman (Tim Curry) into visiting a haunted house for a school project.

Why I Love It: I thought this was a great follow-up to the first Scary Movie. The parodies and references were hilarious a lot of their original jokes were killer. The whole cast had great comedic timing and chemistry. It’s definitely a comedy that I can watch over and over and is still capable of making me laugh.

Favorite Scene: When Dwight (David Cross) and Hanson (Chris Elliott) roast each other.

Favorite Quote:

Dwight:Aaaaahahaha! I can’t feel my legs!

Ray (Shawn Wayans):You never could.

Dwight:Hey, you stay out of this!

42. Stripes (1981)

Directed By: Ivan Reitman

Stars: Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, John Candy, and Warren Oates.

Synopsis (provided by Two friends who are dissatisfied with their jobs decide to join the army for a bit of fun.

Why I Love It: This is probably my favorite Murray/Ramis collaboration. Their back-and-forths were at the top of their game in this film. It may be a long film, but I can’t think of a single moment I don’t love. It’s a fun film filled with lots of laughs and a cast that keeps you entertained until the very end.

Favorite Scene: When John (Bill Murray) tries to convince his girlfriend Anita (Roberta Leighton) to stay.

Favorite Quote:

Russell (Harold Ramis):I’ve always been kind of a pacifist. My father told me, ‘never hit anyone in anger, unless you’re absolutely sure you can get away with it.’ I don’t know what kind of soldier I’m gonna make, but I want you guys to know that if we ever get into really heavy combat, I’ll be right behind you guys. Every step of the way.

41. Scream 3 (2000)

Directed By: Wes Craven

Stars: David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and Patrick Dempsey.

Synopsis: While Sidney (Neve Campbell) tries to hide herself from the world, a new killer terrorizes the Hollywood set of the third installment of the Stab franchise.

Why I Love It: Although people tend to hate this film, I thought it was a great addition to the Scream franchise. We get more in-depth of Sidney’s family and what started the whole chain of carnage. It’s brutal, it’s clever, and it has a lot of heartbreaking moments. I love that it takes it back to the beginning and brings us a twist I never saw coming!

Favorite Scene: When Sidney and Roman (Scott Foley) fight.

Favorite Quote:

Sidney:God, why don’t you stop your whining and get on with it? I’ve heard all this s**t before. Do you know why you kill people, Roman? Do you? It’s because you choose to! There is no one else to blame! Why don’t you take some f***ing responsibility?!

Stars: Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, and John Gavin.

Synopsis (provided by A Phoenix secretary embezzles $40,000 from her employer’s client, goes on the run, and checks into a remote hotel run by a young man under the domination of his mother.

Why I Love It: This is not only a classic horror film that deserves to be watched by everyone, it was a stepping stone in the horror genre. It gave us memorable characters, multiple twists and turns, and a scene that made people afraid to shower for decades. Strangely enough, I find the film very calming and whatever mood I’m in, I can throw it on and just escape into the story.

Favorite Scene: Marion’s (Janet Leigh) death scene.

Favorite Quote:

Norman (Anthony Perkins):We all go a little mad sometimes.

39. Krampus (2015)

Directed By: Michael Dougherty

Stars: Emjay Anthony, Adam Scott, Toni Collette, and David Koechner.

Synopsis (provided by A boy who has a bad Christmas accidentally summons a festive demon to his family home.

Why I Love It: This ended up being one of the Christmas movies that I HAVE to watch every December. It has a perfect combination of comedy and terror. One thing that I wasn’t expecting when I first saw this was how much I would fall in love with the characters. Sure, they were a dysfunctional family with a lot of issues but I genuinely cared about what happened to them.

Favorite Scene: Omi’s (Krista Stadler) backstory.

Favorite Quote:

Omi:Like he had for thousands of years, Krampus came not to reward, but to punish. Not to give, but to take.

Stars: Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, and Arnold Vosloo.

Synopsis (provided by At an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Hamunaptra, a powerful mummy accidentally gets woken up and begins to wreak havoc as he searches for the reincarnation of his long-lost love.

Why I Love It: Honestly, there isn’t anything I dislike about this film. It’s thrilling, it has terrifying moments, and it has one of the best horror movie couples ever created! Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) is one of the most powerful and horrifying monsters ever put on screen. It’s a hell of an adventure and I wish every single cast and crew member returned for one last ride!

Favorite Scene: When Jonathan (John Hannah) gained control of Imhotep’s undead army.

Favorite Quote:

Beni (Kevin J. O’Connor):O’Connell! Hey, O’Connell! It looks to me like I’ve got all the horses!

Rick (Brendan Fraser):Hey, Beni! Looks to me like you’re on the wrong side of the river!

Directed By: Bobby And Peter Farrelly

Stars: Jim Carrey, Renée Zellweger, Chris Cooper, and Richard Jenkins.

Synopsis (provided by A nice-guy cop with Dissociative Identity Disorder must protect a woman on the run from a corrupt ex-boyfriend and his associates.

Why I Love It: For starters, Jim Carrey (Charlie/Hank) really steals the show in this one. His ability to play two personalities that are complete opposites is outstanding! Renée Zellweger (Irene) also gave a superb performance. I have to say Charlie’s sons were my absolute favorite. They were intelligent, loyal, and hysterical together.

Favorite Scene: When Charlie’s sons save the day.

Favorite Quote:

Charlie:I turn my back for one moment then you stick it up my a**. Literally!

Irene:For your information, you stuck it in your own a**!

Why I Love It: I absolutely love road trip films and this one was done so well! We’re The Millers is lewd, crude, and filled with fantastic WTF moments! All four stars were at their best and funniest in this film. I have my fingers crossed that we’re going to see these guys again in a sequel!

Favorite Scene: Rose’s (Jennifer Aniston) dance scene.

Favorite Quote:

Todd (Ken Marino):Hey, Rose, I know you’re ‘technically’ on break, but I need a lap dance. Table five. Just don’t get too close. The guy has two hook-hands.

Todd:I don’t know. He must’ve picked the locks. (laughs at own joke)

35. Grown Ups (2010)

Directed By: Dennis Dugan

Stars: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, and David Spade.

Synopsis (provided by After their high school coach passes away, five good friends and former teammates reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Why I Love It: Grown Ups is great summer fun! What’s really great about it is the authenticity of the characters’ bonding. We see real life friends have the time of their lives working on this film and their joy projects onto their audience. It’s a great film centered around reuniting and reminiscing while creating new memories with loved ones.

Favorite Scene: The whole water park scene.

Favorite Quote:

Roxanne Chase-Feder (Salma Hayek):Excuse me, Princess Rita. Are you just gonna sit there, or are you going to help me?

Rita (Di Quon):No, Mr. Feder said that I must study for the big final.

Roxanne:What final?

Directed By: Quentin Tarantino

Stars: Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kerry Washington.

Synopsis (provided by With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal plantation owner in Mississippi.

Why I Love It: One thing I absolutely love is seeing some racist S.O.B.s getting what they deserve… even if it’s only in a fictional film. Django Unchained definitely delivered on the carnage, humor, and characters. It’s a very tragic story that can be hard to watch but the payoff is executed so well!

Favorite Scene: When the racists argue over the sacks on their heads.

Favorite Quote:

Big Daddy (Don Johnson):Wait a minute! I didn’t say no bags.

Bag Head #2 (Jonah Hill):But nobody can see.

Big Daddy:So?

Bag Head #2:So, it’d be nice to see.

Why I Love It: This film was one of my first horror movies and it was a huge part of my childhood. As a kid, I always wanted to form my own monster club. The Monster Squad has a great group of friends, amazing monsters, and an overall thrilling tale. It certainly deserves a lot more recognition!

Favorite Scene: The battle preparation montage.

Favorite Quote:

Horace (Brent Chalem):Wolfman’s got nards!

32. Wedding Crashers (2005)

Why I Love It: This is a great rom-com starring one of my favorite comedy duos! It’s an insane concept that hilariously shows us what happens when crazy meets even crazier. Some of the content is definitely risky, but I just can’t hate this one! Plus, you just can’t beat a good Will Ferrell (Chazz) cameo.

Favorite Scene: The wedding montage.

Favorite Quote:

Mrs. Kroeger (Rebecca De Mornay):You shut your mouth when you’re talking to me!

Why I Love It: Scream 2 was a fantastic follow-up for me! It’s full of underrated performances brought by a stellar cast. It’s full of shocking moments and the college setting was absolutely perfect. The paranoia and all the red herrings were done so well, I never saw the ending coming. It’s definitely a sequel that lives up to the Scream legacy!

Favorite Scene: Sidney’s play rehearsal.

Favorite Quote:

Cici Cooper (Sarah Michelle Geller):Movies are not responsible for our actions.

Why I Love It: One of my favorite comedy sub-genres is road trip comedies and this is always the first film I think of when the sub-genre pops up in conversations. I love the dynamic of the four protagonists as they all have their own reasons for escaping their realities for a while. It’s very goofy but that’s one of the reasons I love it!

Favorite Scene: When Woody (John Travolta) argued with a kid over his yard.

Favorite Quote:

Jack (Ray Liotta):Those a**holes got balls.

Synopsis (provided by The uneventful, aimless lives of a London electronic salesman and his layabout roommate are disrupted by the zombie apocalypse.

Why I Love It: Shaun Of The Dead is as classic as all the zombie films before it. The most brilliant aspects are its references to the other zombie movies and its use of foreshadowing. It’s a wonderful and hilarious parody with so much originality that makes it stand above all the rest!

Favorite Scene: When Ed (Nick Frost) and Shaun (Simon Pegg) meet Mary (Nicola Cunningham) the zombie.

Synopsis (provided by Unscrupulous boxing promoters, violent bookmakers, a Russian gangster, incompetent amateur robbers, and supposedly Jewish jewelers fight to track down a priceless stolen diamond.

Why I Love It: One of my favorite forms of storytelling is when multiple stories intertwine. There isn’t a boring moment in this film. None of the characters are good guys but you don’t care cause they’re all so entertaining. I love everyone’s performances and the shocking moments throughout the film were pulled off so well.

Favorite Scene: The rabbit chase.

Favorite Quote:

Vinny (Robbie Gee):I thought you said he was a getaway driver. What the f**k can he get away from?
