Welcome to October! Where has that year gone? Didn’t we JUST celebrate January 2008?? Yet here we are with just a few months of 2008 to spare. Dang. I’m ready for 2009, though. Bring it on.
Anyway, I thought up this particular eclectic holiday, because I think we’ve posted about our most favorite horror movies. There are the others, though, that we could do without. I’m not talking about the horribly gruesome ones where we say they’re terrible, but if we see them on TV we sit down and watch anyway. No, I’m talking about the ones that make us cringe because we spent money to watch them on the big screen. Or we sat down in our homes to watch them, thinking they’d be worth our time.
Here are my least favorite horror movies:
Exhibit A: The remake of “The Haunting”. Where does Catherine Zeta-Jones, Owen Wilson and Liam Neeson get off by trying to act? Don’t insult me, peeps. I’ll confess this to you, though. When it was available to own, I actually bought the friggen remake. How sick is that?? It might be one of those I’ll give away when I eventually clean out my video library. Or maybe I’ll keep it for laughs. I know I’ve shared my resentment towards that remake already, though.
Exhibit B: The remake of “The Fog”. I tried. I tried to open my mind to new experiences and watch the remake, because the first version is still one of my favorite spooky movies. Dear God. My stomach, ears and eyes couldn’t take much, and I eventually had to turn the channel. Selma Blair as Antonio Bay’s lighthouse owner and DJ Stevie Wayne??? Plus some no-name pretty-girl that, I guess, plays the role Jamie Lee Curtis portrayed? Pah-lease. Ahem. Maybe I’m taking this too personal. ;)
I won’t see the remakes of “Amityville Horror” or “The Omen”. No thank you. I’d rather just enjoy the memories from the originals.
So what is your least favorite horror movie? And if you’re not into horror movies, what are some of your least favorite movies of all time?
