13. did you finally see The Tenant? (looks that way)
what did you think?

ooh, I'm getting creeped out just thinking about it. It's nice to see you have classic and more avant choices on there, as well as more recent fare.

8. Howdy, back
Nice picture of dear "Aggie"

I also like "The Nanny" though Bette D insisted "it's not a horror film!" but it sure is scary.

7. My Bloody Valentine
..... but only because of what happened while we were watching it.

It's your typical teenage slasher/horror flick where the only people in the town are a few teenegers. (I have always wondered where all the adults are when these kids are getting chopped up.) Someone is going around town and killing people and cutting out their hearts. In one scene the teenegers go into the open, well-lit laundromat. A dryer is running. So, being teenagers who have already seen multiple killings that night, they open the dryer - and there is *another* heart - flopping around in the dryer.

We were watching this at my house. My sister and her (then) husband were dorm parents and didn't have laundry facilities so they'd come to my place to do laundry. My washer and dryer were right inside the back door in a hallway with a laundry closet thingy.

We paused the movie and my sister went to the laundry area for a few minutes. My BIL and I looked at each other and grinned. He snuck out the front door and went around to the back door - right by the laundry facilities - and started beating on the door as hard as he could.

My sister broke all land speed records in getting from the laundry area to my living room! It was great! Payback for all those years of terrorizing me!

11. "Devil's Rejects" and "House of 1,000 Corpses" are two of mine.
That Rob Zombie is one hell of a horror flick creator.

It doesn't hurt that I could watch Shari Moon-Zombie doing crochet and still be turned on.
