evildeadlrgeThe Evil Dead (1981)
Five friends go to a cabin in the woods for a vacation. They discover The Book of the Dead and a tape recorder belonging to a professor, who also owns the cabin. One of them plays back what is recorded on the tape– which just happens to be Candarian resurrection passages translated from the Necronomicon (Book of the Dead) by the professor, which unleashes an evil force from the woods. The people start turning into evil deadites, and the others soon learn from the tape that the only way to kill a person who is turned into a deadite is by total body dismemberment. People are dying left and right; one girl early in the film looses control and runs off into the woods, only to be attacked by the trees.

wolfcreeklrgeWolf Creek (2005)
Based on a true story…Three friends embark on an adventure in the rugged Australian outback, having set out to see the famous Wolf Creek- a famous crater made by a meteor thousands of years ago. They spend time partying and bonding during their road trip to the landmark. When they arrive they leave their car at the bottom to make the 3 hour hike to the top of the crater. Upon their return to the car, they find that it will not start, and must enlist the help of a seemingly charitable fellow, who happens to “coincidentally” be meandering around one of the most remote areas of the world. They decide to allow him to tow them and their car back to his dwelling, where he has promised to quickly fix the car. However, the three soon realize he has other plans in store, when, after being drugged, awake to scenes of terror, grisly dismemberment, and even death. We get to know the three on a personal level, so that what happens to them is more than mere gore and torture; we actually feel for these characters and want them to succeed. A surprisingly well-done, yet very difficult film to watch.

    Wow Audie,

    I’m impressed. This is too cool. I started off watching Wolf Creek but had to stop watching because it was too scary. I won’t finish watching it.
    It was much too much!

    • I’ve got one called “Last House on the Left”

      I’ll report back with a review πŸ™‚

      • audiegrl

        I actually watched the original version, which was really disturbing and scary. I’m not sure if the new version will be for me. Plucka Plucka, I’m a chicken. πŸ˜‰

      • SouthernGirl2

        Last house on the left? I trying to remember if my son has that one. He buys all the scary movies and then ask me if I wanna watch them. Ummm…No!

        I’m too chicken!!!

      • I remember as a kid we would rent the scariest movies available, Sleepaway Camp was a personal favorite, although it scarred me for life! I always wanted to see Last House on the Left, but a friend of mine lived in the last house on the left on her street, and that flick was a no-go for years. Especially after I made her watch Evil Dead. My friends never really forgave me for that one. From what I’ve read, LHOTL was loosely based on a true story, and just reading about it freaked me out. That’s why I love horror films! And AG, I am w/you on the Ring. That flick freaked my sh*t out. I watched most of it by myself, and the weirdest things occurred… the phone ringing w/no caller ID info listed, a fly buzzing around my head although I couldn’t see it, and just that overwhelming feeling of dread permeating the air around me. It seriously gave me a panic attack just watching it. I get the willies just thinking about it!

      • “Last House on The Left”

        If you really like graphic violence (I don’t) watch the unrated version, otherwise go for the theatrical version.

        My Rating C-

    • audiegrl

      Thank you girl! We had a ball putting this together. πŸ™‚

      I already know that Wolf Creek will be too much for me, I got scared watching the trailer. LOL

  2. shanti2

    Ok, Carrie with Sissy Specek is the last horror movie I’ve seen, and that was in the early 70’s. Not a fan of the macabre.

    That being said. I LOVE YOUR BLOG SITE! My hubby dresses up as black Dracula every Halloween, buys TONS-O-CANDY, and entertains and delights the kiddie treat-o-treaters!

    Me, I hide out in my bedroom. LOL! They call me the Scrooge of Halloween.

  3. SouthernGirl2

    “Me, I hide out in my bedroom. LOL! They call me the Scrooge of Halloween”.

    lol

    Shanti, you’re too funny! I’ll bet the kids that come by have a great time. A few years ago, I took my nieces trick-or treating and someone was hiding in the bushes and popped up when they walked by and the girls started running and fell down in the ditch screaming. I was chasing after them trying to calm them! Whew lawd! lol

    • audiegrl

      LMAO! πŸ˜‰

      I didn’t used to be so scary when I was younger. We used to go to showings of Rocky Horror Picture Show, in costume, and doing the time warp right along with the movie. Now that was fun!

  4. SouthernGirl2

    Audie,

    I’m let you in on a secret….I’ve always been scary! lol
    I’m still afraid of the dark.

    My nieces was so scared until they were shaking and looking over their shoulder but they still wanted candy! lol That night was fun for me too!

    I enjoyed taking the girls.

    • audiegrl

      Its a fun holiday. My daughter’s birthday fell on the 17th, so each year for her slumber party, guess who hosted a haunted house? I have three whole bins of bloody hatchets, bloody feet and hands, and other assorted spook house stuff. I guess we are keeping it for grandkids one day.

      She always invited about 12 friends who were up all damn night. When they would leave in the morning, she would always try to go to sleep. Not. I don’t think so missy, you can stay awake like your poor mom and dad have to do. πŸ˜‰

  5. SouthernGirl2

    OMG! I see Final Destination on here. Remember when the guy got his hand stuck in the garbage disposal? On my God, a couple of weeks ago I got my hand stuck under the back passenger seat of the truck. I was looking for my glasses…I thought they fell in between the seat. My hand got stuck and I started crying…finally my nephew raised the seat up & I was able to get my hand free. Instantly, I thought….Final Destination!
    Too weird!

    • “the guy got his hand stuck in the garbage disposal”

      that thought goes through my mind every time I have to fish something out of there! πŸ™‚

    • audiegrl

      Hershel told me he is scared to death of the Final Destination movies. He doesn’t even like to watch the commercials about it.

      Did you think Death was coming after you? That’s what those movies make you think! Plus I hate that creepy guy from Candyman, his voice and look is just too much.

      • SouthernGirl2

        I thought I was going to lose my hand. I started to panic instantly. My hand was sore for about 2 days!

        I have to tell you….The next day my nephew came over and stood at my front door and screamed…
        “my hand”, “my hand” and was laughing at me. I told him, I’m not letting you in my house! πŸ™‚

      • Speaking of Candyman, when you were a kid, do you remember saying Candyman or Bloody Mary 3 times in the dark in front of a mirror, on the off chance that you would see him or her staring right back at you, reaching out to grab you like what’s-her-name from The Ring?!

        I swear to you, even at my age, I refuse to go into the bathroom with the lights off. Otherwise I might just say something I’ll come to regret…

        • audiegrl

          We didn’t do Candyman, but something else. I wish I could remember. Or maybe its best that I don’t. πŸ˜‰

    • audiegrl

      Ah, y’all are so creative. Sounds like that was a fun house? I’ll bet the kids enjoyed your place?

      You just don’t know! She was in the academic gifted program and performing arts program. So just imagine 12 little girls who were half FAME and half EINSTEIN. One time when she was 10 they decided to put on a musical version of the play Antigone….at 4 o’clock in the morning! Did I mention my daughter played drums? You get the picture. My husband and I woke up to drums, singing, and set building. All we could do was just shake our damn heads. LOL πŸ˜‰

  6. “the guy got his hand stuck in the garbage disposal”

    oh you mean old “Stubby” πŸ˜‰

  7. AG

    I’d say your Halloween theme is a success. πŸ™‚

    • audiegrl

      Hey, I didn’t do this by myself! Take a bow (AG is clapping) πŸ™‚

    • Oh heck ya, Sis, you’ve outdone yourself! LOVE it!!! Now I wanna watch a scary movie w/all the lights turned out. Gotta wait for the man & child to hit the hay to get my way. Danimal scoffs at horror films; must be the engineer in him. He thought the Ring was the dumbest movie in the world, but then he took it literally (e.g., no spoilers here, but near the end w/the TV). His point was, like that would ever happen. That’s the fun of these movies! You can lose yourself in an alternate universe for 2 hours and come back down to earth safely.

      Anyone see Paranormal Activity yet?! I’m psyched to see it, just don’t know if it’s hit the StL yet. Sounds SUPER scary.

    • Geo, you did a mighty fine job yourself! Take a bow under the blacklight in your glow ‘n the dark shirt, and have some Halloween treats on me! πŸ™‚

  8. SouthernGirl2

    I’ll be back tomorrow for trick-or-treat!

    I want candy! πŸ™‚

    Oh, hell no! Not The Ring!

    I left my comment on the wrong thread. AG and GeoT, this is amazing!! I’m shaking my head in total awe. Brava, Bravo!!!

    Speaking of Final Destination, a friend told me he saw the latest one in 3-D. You must be some kind of crazy to do that — the regular movies are bad enough!!!

    • SouthernGirl2

      Ogenec,

      “Speaking of Final Destination, a friend told me he saw the latest one in 3-D. You must be some kind of crazy to do that β€” the regular movies are bad enough!!!”

      You’ll get no argument from me. I totally agree!

  11. SouthernGirl2

    Audie,

    We have more in common than you know!

    My son was in the Gifted & Talented Program. He & my daughter were both tested in elementary school. The testers had to put a petition between my son and daughter because he was trying to help his sister with the answers! πŸ™‚

  12. buellboy

    Great page guys! Keep this up and we will expect special pages for all holidays! By the way i forgot one the movies that ruined the the late 70’s/ early 80’s for me lol. Magic with Sir Anthony Hopkins. I never looked at Waylon and Madam or Wilile Tyler and Lester the same again! ha ha

    • audiegrl

      ah hell BB, not that scary dummy. I must have seen this in the seventies, which is why those dummies creep me out now. Sir Anthony must have been practicing for his role as Hannibal Lecter. πŸ˜‰

  13. audiegrl

    Hey Bluedog! Happy Halloween

    We don’t even talk about The Ring at my house. So ya’ll should know I love you if I even considered posting about it, let alone the trailer. LOL

    I had read the book Ringu that was translated from Japanese, so I felt safe in watching the movie. Boy was I wrong. The part that got me? When she steps out of the TV set, and starts walking forward with a ‘tick’. Damn…

    • I was into the Japanese/American horror craze for a while. The Grudge scared the heck out of me. The sound that “thing” made. Blech. There’s another freaky Japanese flick that is just not right, but of course, me being me, I watched it. It’s called Odishon, or in English, Audition. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0235198/. Freaky as all get out. And that is an extreme understatement.

      • audiegrl

        I heard about Audition, it was in one of those Bravo ‘Scariest Movies of All Time’ shows. It looked pretty serious. πŸ˜‰

      • audiegrl

        Hey sis, this is the one that got on my nerves too. Its by the people who made Ringu (The Ring) and The Grudge. You can rent it with sub-titles, which IMHO makes it even creepier. πŸ˜‰

        Kansen aka Infection (2004)
        In a general hospital near bankruptcy, the reduced staff is working under a severe stress. During the emergency attendance to a burned patient with Dr. Uozumi and two other nurses, Dr. Akiba and the nurse commit an error, injecting sodium chlorate and killing him.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street
    A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.

  16. buellboy

    Ok I have one more that really isn’t scary as it is creepy because it based on a true story. The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Anytime I wake up at 3am now it makes me wonder lol

    • audiegrl

      Oh, no. That’s the chick from Dexter πŸ™‚ They say that her scene in the barn was so realistic that the camera crew thought she was actually possessed.

    • Hey BB, check this out. I couldn’t even listen to the entire thing. Gives me the wiggins. It’s the exorcism that is the basis of the Emily Rose film. I got chills, & they’re multiplyin!

  17. I’m surprised nobody mentioned The Exorcist as one of their fave scary films. I refused to watch it when it came out, coz I was young & impressionable, but now that I’ve seen it as an adult, there are some parts that really get to me. What excites me about the film is that it’s loosely based on a true story, part of which took place in the StL. Every once in a while the St. Louis Post-Dispatch runs a feature on it, pretty much rehashing the exorcism itself, which took place at St. Louis University (home of the Jesuit priests) & Alexian Brothers hospital. There is even a home in north St. Louis where the boy in question stayed for a time during his ordeal. Great piece of history for St. Louisans.

    BTW, there are MANY haunted places in the StL Metro area. One is The Lemp Mansion, which was owned by the Lemp family back in the day. The Lemp Brewery rivaled Anheuser-Busch back then, but the Lemp family experienced numerous tragedies. I think one of their brands was “Faust” beer, which is ironic knowing the Shakespearian tragedy. Kinda makes you wonder what kinda deal Papa Lemp must have made to gain his fortune, which was all but lost by the time the dark side was through w/his family. The brewery now is defunct, but the mansion where the family lived is open for biz as a restaurant & party place. It IS haunted. I know from experience.

    Alton, IL, not far from Downtown St. Louis, is also known as one of the most haunted cities in the U.S. Built on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River, the city’s foundation was built upon the remains of a Civil War POW prison. Many of the prisoners lived in deplorable conditions, and were left to die there. So the prison was razed, and the city of Alton was built upon the concrete foundation of the prison. As you drive through this lovely old city, you’ll see the old concrete blocks used as retaining walls and foundations for many of the homes. Hauntings have been documented on TV and in books.

    Check out these bits of haunted history in St. Louis, MO. There’s more to the StL than the Cardinals! πŸ˜‰
