At least I won't have to partake of barely concealed threats from 5-7 years olds regarding sweeties...I'll have eaten them all anyway! :evil:


You'll have eaten the Children or the Sweeties :shock:


sweeties! Sweeties! I meant sweeties! :D

An American Werewolf in London was one of my favourites in that genre. :D

Does Tucker & Dales vs Evil count as horror? :P

I love the Mummy Films except for the last one, which was a bit lame. I may watch them if I get a chance.

I'm not a fan of horror films. But I might watch my copy of Let the Right One In.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

*snore* Could not have been less scared by that film.

I'll watch some zombie films I think, and something Japanese - those people know how to write a ghost story (watching the original Grudge I almost wet my pants).


Gotta agree with Dotsie on this one.

We have that SBS station here that shows all foreign movies. The only truly freak me out for days movies I have ever seen are from Japan or Korea. WIll ask the teen what the name of the last one was. Soooo scarey.
