FAVORITE SCARY MOVIES
We are gearing up for the holidays with all the wonderful holiday reads coming out, but before that Halloween is around the corner! We had the opportunity of asking the SMP Romance and Swerve authors what their favorite scary movie (if any) was and here’s their answers. Have you watched any of these? What’s your own favorite?
Ruth Logan Herne
None! I’m a writer, I get scared too easy! Too many what-ifs going on in my head!
Scary movies? No way! (Not since I was fourteen!)
I really, really hate horror movies! I was forever scarred by watching The Exorcist at the tender age of ten. Where were my parents?! Lol.
Scary movies creep into my dreams so I try not to watch them. I’m such a chicken that even the movie trailers they put on prime time television freak me out sometimes! I can’t say that I’d call it a “favorite”, but the scary movie that still gives me chills every time I think about it is. . .The Shining. Eek!
I’m a scaredy cat, so Casper the Friendly Ghost is about as close as I’ll ever get to a scary movie.
Poltergeist. An oldie but a goodie! I love a good ghost story.
I don’t typically watch scary movies, unless you count things like The Day After Tomorrow, Armageddon, and 2012. (Adam Lambert sang the theme song for 2012 and I’m a huge fan of his, so that was a delightful bonus!) I did watch Shaun of the Dead which I thought was fun and I enjoyed Cabin in the Woods, too.
I can’t watch scary movies. I love happy endings!
Definitely Evil Dead and Evil Dead II. Not the remake, the classics with Bruce Campbell. They’re a Halloween staple and a cult classic in my house.
