Best Spooky Movie, Round Three!
The Thing From Another World (1951). Not as scary as the Kurt Russell remake, but still quite eerie and a whole lot of fun.
The Thing - that crazy looking, horrifying spider-man-dude head Thing. Kill it. Kill it now.
Makes my head spin
We all knew it was coming.
Unless you saw The Tingler and scored one of the electrified seats, you cannot fully appreciate horror flicks.
Having the exorcist here makes this unfair. That has to be the archetypical “true horror” film. Hereditary was one of the best in recent years though.
Kill that shizzy!
I can see that 78% of users haven’t seen The Thing…
But the thing (SWIDT?) is…The Exorcist is also in the poll. Yes I voted for The Thing, but The Exorcist was so close to getting my vote too.
The Devil’s Backbone, The Orphanage?? Anyone
Salem’s Lot so scary.
Also, is it just me or do Catholic Priests always appear in scary movies?
Agreed. My sister and I watched The Exorcist on VHS when it first became available in the early ‘80’s. We were hysterical at the cheesiness of it. We quoted several lines when Regan was speaking to Father Damien (I can’t mention here) , for years. Good times! My vote is for The Thing. It’s cool and and you don’t know who’s a Thing or not. Wilford Brimley made that movie, God bless him.
Yeah, they probably should have put the top seeds in different polls. But I’ve seen the Exorcist a few times, and I’ve seen The Thing a few DOZEN times.
And I’ve seen Alien…a lot.
