I seriously think I am the only person in the world who wasn't scared by Insidious. I thought it was cheesy!

I am a huge fan of Michael Meyers. The Halloween movies are always a staple for my Halloween celebrations. I really liked the new ones, too; I thought Rob Zombie did an excellent job.

Bekka - I sort of agree with you about Insidious...The first half scared the crap out of me, but the whole "stuck in another realm" part was pretty cheezy. The very last scene was super scary though. I just love open-ended movies that shock the heck out of you.

My weakness is zombie/post apocalyptic films like Resident Evil, 28 Days/Weeks Later, and Dawn of the Dead. I am absolutely terrified of fast walking/running Zombies! I can't watch any of those movies by myself. Serial killers I can handle, but Zombies keep me awake at night, lol. And I'm totally obsessed with AMC's series The Walking Dead.

Rob Zombie did do an excellent job with the newer Halloween films. If you haven't seen his House of 1000 Corpses, you should definitely check it out.

Have a Happy Halloween!

OMG, I can't beleive I'd forgotten about Children of the Corn. This scared the living crap out of me when I was a kid. It gives me the shivers just to think about it. I love your blog title by the way! I'm following.

Thanks for following, Liz! I'm on my way to your blog right now.

And yes, Children of the Corn also scared the living crap out of me when I was a kid. I live in Southeastern Louisiana and everywhere you turn, there is a sugar cane field. I can remember being terrified when my parents drove by a cane field, and to this day, I have never walked through one, haha.
