I love scary movies. I love jumping and screaming and then laughing at how scared I was or how loud I screamed.
There's something about scary movies that intrigue me. Maybe it's the fact that I'm grateful for not having a serial killer stalking me, or a demonic child living two bedrooms away.
My roommate HATES scary movies. She gets really scared - I'm worried for her health kind of scared. My friend and I made her watch scary movies over the summer despite her constant refusals. We watched a few Halloween movies, a couple Friday the 13th ones, and Prom Night (the new one...not very good).
This week, though, my roommate is in Texas. So we've taken advantage of her absence and have watched three scary movies already - Joy Ride (Paul Walker is a hottie), The Orphan (that will make a person think twice before adopting), and Scream 3 (the 2nd best of the trilogy).
Let me start with Joy Ride. I've seen it before and it's a great plot. Steve Zahn does a wonderful job as the comic relief brother to Paul Walker...which lightens the mood. Now, I haven't seen Joy Ride 2 yet, but I'll have to check that one out soon.
The Orphan - omg, there is nothing bad to say about this movie. It's so good! The twist is unexpected and amazing. It's not a jumpy movie, but it gets in your head and stays there for awhile. I recommend this movie for people who like psychological thrillers.
Last, but not least - Scream 3. I remember watching the first Scream when it came out. I was nine or ten at the time. My oldest sister, Kyrstin, had her boyfriend over and they were playing a board game in the kitchen (which is odd, because he didn't like board games) and my other sister, Tyne, and I sat in the dark living room and watched the movie. I was scared out of my mind. The same thrills from the first movie transferred itself to the third movie - and basically skipped the second. The Scream movies need to be watched in order. I know the second one sucks, but just watch that one to make fun of it. Oh, and the third one has some big names in it: Parker Posey does a hilarious job as an actress playing Gale Weathers, and Patrick Dempsey is definitely looking McDreamy as a cop.
To sum up - scary movies are awesome. I love them and although I can pick out who's going to die next etc...it's the thrill of it all that keeps me coming back to them.
