The Shining
This film was so intense and mind-twistingly rich. A Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick collaboration for the ages. This film on all levels screams generational classic!



Paranormal Activity

I’ve never been so utterly terrified as I was while watching this film. I left marks in my buddy’s couch from digging my fingers into the cushions. The way the director used the viewer’s imagination as a source of fear was utterly brilliant.



American Psycho
Christian Bale‘s portrayal of Patrick Bateman is so charismatically sick in the head and hilarious. It may be my dark humor but this movie was such a strange journey through an unfamiliar man’s obsession. After watching it 15 times I’m STILL not 100% certain if the end!



I saw Zombeavers recently and it was so terribly hilarious. A couple moments scared me and the mid-transformation prosthetics were fantastic! I’m a huge fan of unnecessary nudity in horror films and this one had lots! Cheesy Horror Hall of Fame!



Horror classic! This film had so many great characters and had the sci-fi theme wrapped in as well! It was like a full-length dream sequence with great actors and a legendary lead character. One of Michael Keaton‘s best works!



28 Days Later
I never thought zombies were that scary until I saw how they reinvented them in this film. It was super scary because of how eerily real it felt.



Idle Hands

As a teenager, I really liked this film because it was scary, yet super cool at the same time. I thought this was one of Devon Sawa‘s best films and was a definitely a cult classic! I must have watched this movie about 20 times in the 90’s.
Ernest Scared Stupid
Another 90’s classic and so dumb yet endearing! Ernest was always entertaining to watch! RIP Jim Varney.


Gremlins 1 and 2
This movie was equally scary and suspenseful. I loved the 1st Gremlins but the campiness of Gremlins 2 was an all-time epic movie. The cameos were great as well.


Puppet Master
This movie ruined marionettes for a while. Every puppet I found lying around, I would be scared as hell. The fact that there was an evil puppet spiritual agreement to kill humans creeped me out.
