I’m just your average college student who spends too much time watching movies, but I have a good excuse! I want to make my own movies someday, so really it’s like I’m studying, right?
This year will be my 3rd time to go to the horror convention Texas Frighmare, with my mom, since 2013! My love for horror was inherited from my mom. She loves horror, and her favorite holiday is Halloween, we would always go all out with our decorations, so I was destined to be the same way. There were a few events in my life that tried to stop this from happening, like when my friend told me about It,as if It were real, when I was 6, or the fact that I had very vivid nightmares about Ghostface every night for a large chunk of my childhood after catching a glimpse of Scream (we also had a GIANT Ghostface decoration at the end of our hallway every Halloween that did not help that situation), but somehow I prevailed. Now, Scream is one of my favorites.
Every October, if there was a Halloween movie airing, then it was on our tv, and those didn’t terrify me. I never saw any of the Halloween films in full until later, though. The first full horror movie I watched was Jeepers Creepers when I was around 10, and the first one I watched alone was the Prom Night remake. From then on out, I didn’t stop watching them. Movies about ghosts/demons and aliens are what scare me most. Probably more so the latter. That alien segment in V/H/S 2 ,and Dark Skies are scary as hell man.
Five films to watch:
1. Carrie (1976)
2. Final Girl (2015)
3. The Final Girls (2015, No, this one and the above are not related, although Alexander Ludwig happens to be in both)
4. Funny Games (2007)
5. The Collector (2009)
