Have not seen one since The Exorcist. Did not see the end of it to be honest. For some unknown reason I literally fell on the floor of the theater laughing in hysterics. I had to be escorted out because I could not control myself.

True story!

Candyman. Based on a story by Clive Barker, it's a damned good movie and not just a hack 'n slash. The ending TOTALLY rocks.

Real life is pretry horrifying.


The nightly news...

The older I get and the more I see horror in real life in this world, the less I want to watch it in movies.

To answer your Q though, one of the movies that has "stuck with me" is called "The Collector."

I do enjoy-ish the Saw movies. I prefer the psychology aspect rather than the copious amounts of blood.

Perhaps the scariest movies (for me) were "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and "Day of the Triffids" (original versions). I saw both movies before I was a teenager. I guess I'd have to throw in "The Mummy" with Boris Karloff, with that limping, unraveling mummy lurching toward an unsuspecting victim. I have seen a number of horror movies in which I've said to myself, "A bunch of rednecks with their guns would have blown those bogeymen to smithereens." My favorite line in any horror movie: "I've got an idea--let's split up . . . " As soon as they split up, whatever ghoul has been stalking the group then leisurely picks them off one by one. I'm not sure that they are horror movies, but I like monster movies with such villains as dinosaurs. I cannot think of anything more horrifying than walking down a beach with a tyrannosaurus coming after you, with a mosasaur waiting for you in the water--no place to run!

I am think that what ghoulies in those horror films that could not be dispatched with a shotgun, that a SuperSoaker water gun filled with holy water would quickly dispatch!

Unfortunately in the good ol UK the super soaker would be the strongest weapon available.

I've seen a few of these, but not most of them! Thank you!! I just watched a short video about Event Horizon yesterday detailing how difficult it was for them to produce the movie and the giant battle between them and the studio wanting it to be PG-13, really interesting! John Carpenters The Thing has a special, disgusting place in my heart.

The collector was one of the first movies that I had to get up and leave! It just didn't do it for me...it was just too gross and I didn't think the movie itself was that interesting...but it was definitely an "effective" scare because of my reaction. No doubt it's good in its own ways![‌quote Evansent]

I was just thinking that if the USA replaced lethal injection with "death by woodchipper," the murder rate would most likely drop precipitously!

Not that I'm so much in favor of the death penalty any more--at least not until I read about a really heinous crime.

The first story in the skeleton crew is called the mist and that was the scariest thing I've read.

The shining was very good, as long as you haven't seen the film.

The watchers by dean koontz was very good.

And I've only read a few S.K. books but they are all amazing ๐Ÿ’œ
My favorite is The Long Walk. He wrote it under a pen name at the time as a test to see if his book would be just as popular if people didn't know it was his. It's also what in part inspired the hunger games trilogy.

Dean koontz the artist?? Oh wait, I'm thinking of jeff koontz. whatever his name is. Hmmm I'll have to look into the Watchers. I like the name!

Yea I read the ones he wrote as the Bachman books.
I read the long walk long enough ago I can't remember it well.
It's on my list to re-read.

I've almost run out of king books so am having to read ones I read a long time ago.

The only book of his I didn't overly enjoy was the tommyknockers, king himself admitted he screwed up by releasing it and he doesn't like it.

Speaking of Stephen King, both he and his wife have taken a ride with me (Uber). He was going to start a book signing tour and the publisher had a chartered jet scheduled to take them to the beginning location. He has a mobile home to travel in from place to place along with chauffeurs but it had left days before to get something in it repaired or replaced. So I was the lucky recipient of his Uber transport. When we parted ways he gave me a gift. You will have to read my book to find out what it was.

Tell us about your book!

I remember reading that Stephen King would scare himself so badly when writing horror novels that he wouldn't go into his own basement!

Dead serious Joe. He lives in the same County as me. Casey Key, FL. It is basically a very long and very narrow road with 0 places to do a 'U' turn. If you have Google Earth look it up. The King estate is on the west side surrounded with a very tall wall for privacy. Two electric gates with a circular driveway right at the main entrance. The electric meter is mounted on the wall right next to the oversize mailbox.
When we get a hit on our phones for a passenger needing picked up we only see a first name and the general area of pickup. We have 15 seconds total to decide if we want to accept that pickup. When we accept we briefly see the address before the navigation takes over the screen. I had no idea who 'Stephen' was until he came out the door with 6 bags of luggage.

I kid you not. My first words to him were, "Do you know who you are?" The rest of the ride was quite pleasant as he asked more questions of me than vice versa. I garnered that the entire purpose of that was to determine my level of threat to he and his wife.

My book is going to be short vignettes of the passengers I've met during my time as a ride share driver. This will include celebs, actresses, political figures, and regular folk like you and me. All the stories will be true but the names will be changed.
