Remember when I quoted from some movies for Valentine’s Day? Well if you thought that was fun for me, imagine the damage I could do with Halloween! Muuuuah ha ha. Yeah, so a few nights ago I started thinking of quotes from scary movies. Some of the quotes and/or dialogue aren’t really scary, in fact some are funny. But I got them from movies that are supposed to be scary. Enjoy!
REVISED…As I’m looking down this list it did dawn on me that I may have gotten carried away with all the quotes. It takes me a half hour to scroll down to the end of the post. So I trimmed off some and kept some of my favorites.
