It’s a Horror to Know You: Kinderpal Mickster!
1. What is the first film that ever scared you?
Trilogy of Terror (1975)-Zuni fetish doll anyone? Four-year-old Mickster was traumatized by the “Amelia” segment. I also have a vivid memory of the Zuni fetish doll being on the cover of the TV Guide.
2. What is the last film that scared you?
Insidious (2011)-I was spooked for a least a week after seeing this one at the theater even though I wasn’t satisfied with the ending.
3. Name three Horror movies that you believe are underrated.
Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (1971)-I saw this super, creepy gem on late night TV as a kid. Movies like this fed my fascination with vampires at an early age. It still satisfies.
The Thirst (1979)-Another creepy, unusual flick I caught late night when I was young. I watched because I love vampires and I kept watching because I found this take on vampires intriguing.
House on Sorority Row (1983)-I saw this for the first time at a high school slumber party. My most vivid memory at the time was the head in the toilet. Upon subsequent viewings, I find this movie to be a cut above cookie cutter slasher films (even though I find most all slasher films entertaining).
4. Name three horror movies that you enjoy against your better judgment.
Terror Train (1980)-I just cannot resist David Copperfield performing magic for a “rock crowd” on New Year’s Eve not to mention the huge crush I have on Ben Johnson!
Halloween III Season of the Witch (1982)-How can I possibly withstand that jingle, “Eight more days till Halloween! Silver Shamrock!” or the awesome Tom Atkins?
