TOP 50 HORROR MOVIES~ 39-30

I know it’s taken me awhile but it isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. lol It’s harder when you can’t make decisions. I also know that I’m doing this mostly for myself as a distraction. I think that’s okay.

  • 39) The Believers~ 1987 Director: John Schlesinger Cast: Martin Sheen Helen Shaver~ A psychiatrist discovers a satanic cult is after his son for a sacrificial ceremony. Anytime there are bugs, spiders, worms, or snacks, hatching out of a person’s face I’m watching it.
  • 38) Graveyard Shift~ 1990 Director: Ralph S. Singleton Cast: Stephen Macht Kelly Wolf~ Who doesn’t love giant rats?
  • 37) Session 9~ 2001 Director: Brad Anderson Cast: David Caruso Josh Lucas~ An asbestos removal crew are sent to work in an abandoned insane asylum. (A real asylum that was in Danvers, MA but has since been torn down) The crew’s personal baggage is complicated by tapes found from one of the patients.
  • 36) Pet Sematary~ 1989 Director: Mary Lambert Cast: Fred Gwynne~ A pet cemetery has the ability to bring the dead back to life but they’re not your same loved ones. Love the soundtrack and there are a few scenes that make you jump.
  • 35) A Nightmare On Elm Street~ 1984 Director: Wes Craven Cast: Robert Englund~ A killer with razor like fingers is haunting the dreams of a group of teenagers. Freddie has always been a scary but witty character I wish they had gone into his back story a little more in the first one.
  • 34) Brotherhood of The Wolf~ 2001 Director: Christopher Gans Cast: Vincent Cassel Mark Dacascos Monica Bellucci~ Based on the French myth the “Beast of Gevaudan” which has some truth in it a beast type animal kills over 100 people and the King of France send his envoys to investigate. Vincent Cassel is a favorite French actor of mine who plays his part well. Monica Bellucci is hypnotic as usual. The real surprise here is Mark Dacascos he steals every scene he’s in.
  • 33) The Serpent and The Rainbow~ 1988 Director: Wes Craven Cast: Bill Pullman~ A scientist travels to Haiti to research a “Voodoo drug” that renders a person into a death like state. The effect doesn’t start to diminish until after 12 to 24 hours. This is partly based on an actual powder used in ceremonies.
  • 32) Event Horizon~ 1997 Director: Paul W.S. Anderson Cast: Laurence Fishburne Sam Neill~ A 7 person rescue crew is sent to salvage a spacecraft that’s been missing for 7 years. This movie was more complex than people realized. It’s more like Hellraiser than Aliens and you probably have to watch it more than once.
  • 31) Halloween~ 1978 Director: John Carpenter Cast: Jamie Lee Curtis~ Michael Myers murdered his sister on Halloween night 1963. Fifteen years later he escapes from a mental hospital to return to his hometown to kill again. The reality of the movie is what makes it true horror.
  • 30) The Hills Have Eyes~ 1977 Director: Wes Craven~ A family is stranded in the desert in an area closed to the public. Here a group of people live that are primitive, cannibalistic, inbred, and looking for new family members. You will never forget Michael Berryman.
