Favorite Horror Movie Moments-Part 5

Happy Halloween! Last on my list is Firestarter (1984) starring Drew Barrymore (Charlie McGee) and David Keith (Andy McGee). The movie is based on Stephen King's novel of the same name.

I love this movie. Unlike my previous favorite horror movie moments from the past month, this part isn't funny to me. It's serious in that this little girl lost her father and she is pissed. These people were responsible for his death. And I urged her on as I watched her get her revenge. It was shocking.

Prior to this scene, Charlie killed the man who murdered her father. But she went on to seek revenge against those who were responsible as well.

Just watch the whole scene if you wish. Rent this if you haven't seen it before. It's a classic.

Favorite Horror Movie Moments-Part 4

Next up, we have Tales From the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight (1995), starring Billy Zane and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Tales From the Crypt is a well known horror series that ran from 1989 to 1996. There were three films made under the franchise: the first is Demon Knight; the second is Bordello of Blood (1996), and the third is Ritual (2001). Ritual was released in 2001 without any connection to the franchise, but was later released in 2006, with the cryptkeeper parts restored. Needless to say, I never saw that movie. o.O And I didn't care for Bordello of Blood. Demon Knight is the one I loved.

SPOILER ALERT!! My favorite part is when the Collector (Billy Zane) arrived at the motel with the sherrif and deputy in order to retrieve the key from Brayker (William Sadler), and it proved who the bad guy really was. I won't tell you, but watch.

Skip ahead to 2:50 minutes and watch until 6:00 minutes.
If you haven't seen this movie, rent it. In keeping with the Tales From the Crypt franchise, they like to scare you and make you laugh. And the part where the bad guy went through the window is quite humorous to me.

Watch his reaction when he throws off his coat. LOL.

Favorite Horror Movie Moments-Part 3

Next on the roster we have 28 Weeks Later (2007), sequel to the awesome 28 Days Later (2002). I love zombie movies, although this is a different spin on zombie movies because the infection is from the "rage virus". So, you won't necessarily be eaten, but you may beaten to death. ;-)

Spoiler alert! Ragers get into a private home that is owned by an elderly couple. The couple allows strangers who are also survivors to stay with them during the rage virus outbreak. A little boy comes to the house banging and pleading to be let in, but some in the group prefer not to open the door. Eventually the boy is let in, but he had ragers who chased him to the house. Well, things escalate, and the survivors are quickly taken down.

Don and his wife, Alice, run upstairs. The little boy is up there as well. Alice is so bent on protecting the boy (since she doesn't know where her own children are) that she risks her life after her husband pleads with her to come with him. And...well, you'll see when you watch this clip. I don't blame Don at all for what he did. And honestly, it tickled me.

Favorite Horror Movie Moments-Part 2

There are many horror movies that I really love, but I am going to only include 5 this month in my favorite horror movie moments "series".

SLEEPWALKERS (1992) is an original screenplay penned by Stephen King.

The story is about the lives of Charles and Mary Brady, son and mother, respectively. They are sleepwalkers, nomadic creatures, that feed off the lifeforce of virgin women. O.o

Well, one girl in particular, Tanya Robertson, fights back, and does a number on Charles. And let's just say that his mother Mary (heh!) isn't too pleased with what's been done to her poor son Charles.

If you haven't seen this movie yet; what are you waiting for? It's a classic! :-) I did put this exact scene on my blog a couple years ago for Halloween, but whatever, I'm doing it again! LOL.

And here's one of my favorite parts of the movie. It's morbidly funny to me:

Spoiler alert! The end is my absolute favorite part. Wow, I loved cats after this movie. :-D Skip ahead to 7:00 minutes and watch till the end. If you haven't seen this movie yet, rent it, buy it, or something. :-D

Favorite Horror Movie Moments-Part 1

I'm a few days late with this post. My goal was to post every Monday this month leading up to Halloween. The rest of the posts will go on as such, but this one is just late. **Le sigh**

I will post clips of some of my favorite scenes from horror films that I adore.

I mentioned Night of the Demons (1988) before. I have an absolute favorite scene in this movie. And since, I couldn't find just those few minutes, I have included a really long clip, but will direct you to the exact moment of which I speak. So, here we go:

Skip ahead to 3:22 minutes. It's a little ahead of my favorite part, but I wanted you all to get the gist of the scene when Roger and Judy are confronted by the demons. My exact favorite part is at 4:17 minutes, when Roger begins to shake his head, and what he does after that. Even though it is horror, I always get a big laugh from that particular instant. Enjoy!

And oh, you should watch the entire film, so I suggest you don't watch the rest of the clip unless you have seen the movie in its entirety. It's a classic. :-D
