My favorite season is among us: horror movie season! Oh yes, the joy that it brings to my heart!
Here's my history with horror films: When I was young, I was mortified of scary movies. You couldn't get me near one with a ten-foot pole. One day in high school, something clicked. Horror movies are for entertainment, and although some of them are based on true events and facts, all of a sudden, I couldn't have cared less. Quite bizarre, but worked out for my benefit in the end, because it became a hobby of mine.
I started watching every horror movie I could get my hands on, and to this day, I have become the horror film guru. Here are my four favorite scary movies. I know their scripts, their directors, their writers, and their actors all too well.
4. "The Ring" Director: Gore Verbinski Writers: Ehren Kruger, Koji Suzuki
3. "Carrie" Director: Brian De Palma Writers: Lawrence D. Cohen, Stephen King
2."Rosemary's Baby" Director: Roman Polanski Writers: Ira Levin, Roman Polanski
1. "The Shining" Director: Stanley Kubrick Writers: Stephen King, Stanley Kubrick
