SHOCKtober: 50-41



Oh my gaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhd, the Top 50!

And YES, absolutely, this should have immediately sprung to mind or my life has been worth nothing:



The following films received four votes each:

50. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer -- 1986, John McNaughton

49. The Sixth Sense -- 1999, M. Night Shyamalan

The following films received five votes each:

48. The Orphanage (aka El orfanato) -- 2007, J.A. Bayona
47. Seven -- 1995, David Fincher
46. Hellraiser -- 1987, Clive Barker
45. Jacob's Ladder -- 1990, Adrian Lyne
44. Ju-on -- 2002, Takashi Shimizu
43. Arachnophobia -- 1990, Frank Marshall
42. A Tale of Two Sisters -- 2003, Kim Jee-Woon
41. Carrie -- 1976, Brian De Palma

Gettin' down to both the nitties and the gritties here, folks. I was surprised that Arachnophobia received so many votes, but if there's one thing I've learned this SHOCKtober, it's this: y'all hate bugs.


The good news is, that picture is real. The even better news is, you can click to embiggen and really damage your psyche. Happy Halloween, everyone!

Pinhead scared me so much when I was young that I'd avoid walking past the Hellraiser video at the video store. I read the novella that Hellraiser is based on and it left me so unsettled.
I love the movie but it really freaks me out.

Unless I missed some, 9 out of my 10 choices will wind up in the Top 40. Just an unoriginal hack am I.

For me, the worst part of Hellraiser is when Andrew Robinson impaled his hand on an exposed nail on the staircase. That's the kind of real-life horror that makes me squirm.

I'm very happy to see A TALE OF TWO SISTERS on there. That's a beautiful, heart-wrenching movie.

Along with LET THE RIGHT ONE IN it is easily my favourite horror movie of the last decade.
