I am not a fan of Horror Flicks, but I came across this blogfest and couldn't help but join in! I never saw the value in half-dressed women, wearing insanely short-shorts and water-drenched, white t-shirts, running around in circles as their boyfriends get hacked to pieces. My husband however is obsessed with them. In fact, just last month, I asked him to please order me a more female friendly movie from Netflix. Yeah . . . two days later Massacre on Sorority Row appeared in my mailbox. That said, there are a few movies, mostly classics, that have permanently impacted my ability to sleep. Here are ten of my favorite horror flick quotes. What are yours?
Children of the Corn: “And He Who Walks Behind The Rows did say, "I will send outlanders amongst you: a man and a woman. These outlanders will be unbelievers and profaners of the holy. But they will sorely test you, for they have great power, even greater than that of the Blue Man!”
The Shining: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
Jaws: "I can swim... I just can't walk or dress myself."
Nightmare on Elm Street: "I had a hard on this morning when I woke up, Tina, it had your name written all over it."
The Silence of the Lambs: “A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.”
Poltergeist: “The questions you want to know are inside that light.”
Friday the 13th VI: “I’ve seen enough horror movies to know any weirdo wearing a mask is never friendly.”
Scream: "Movies don't create psychos, they make psychos more creative"
Dawn of the Dead: “When there is no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth.”
