It’s a Horror to Know You: Libby!
1. What is the first film that ever scared you?
The Screaming Woman (1972) ( I was 5, yes, I’m that old ). Someone buried alive, 70’s pop culture decor, (the bad guy’s pad is outstanding) staring Olivia de Havilland, Joseph Cotton and Walter Pidgeon! Are you kidding me. Scarred me for life. I’m still so scared of being buried alive I’m going for the torch method. I was never censored from anything growing up, and my grandparents and uncle supported what my mother called her “little ghoul”! Can be viewed on YouTube right now.
What is the last film that scared you?
Actually, even with the humor,(any great movie has some and this has some clown worthy moments) The Host (2006). South Korean, incredible fx and haunting ending.
Name three Horror movies that you believe are underrated.
Probably not under rated, just over – looked and\or forgotten:
Black Christmas (1974) The Killer’s voice on the crank calls alone still can keep me up all night. Combine that with the howling wind outside and festive yuletide-ish setting…..
The Changeling (1980) Still one of the best ghost stories ever.
Speaking of ghost stories … Ghost Story (1981).
4. Name three horror movies that you enjoy against your better judgment.
(Yes please, I’ll have one of everything.)
Return of the Living Dead. Now a perennial classic, when I was watching this it was the equivalent of “straight to dvd” on HBO which was the only uncensored movie channel and all any of us watched.
Cat People (1982) Nastassja Kinski, Malcolm McDowell, John Heard…guilty pleasure as charged.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) Not enough O’s in O-CRAP to describe this.
5. Send us to five places on the Internet!
No place like Kinder Trauma!

findadeath.com Not fictional horror, not serial killers, just truth being stranger than fiction…as always.
I like your IAHTKY, Libby! Black Christmas, Changeling and Ghost Story are all fab, and I haven’t seen The Screaming Woman yet, so yay!
And I’m glad you mentioned 70s Horror Realm and TVTerrorland! Two of my absolute fave youtube channels!
Great choices Libby! I’m a big fan of Cat People too and such a great soundtrack! I’m going to have to check out “The Screaming Woman” soon! Looks good!
Nice list. Love it.
CAT PEOPLE is a perfect guilty pleasure! I love the Moroder soundtrack (with a great Bowie tune) as well.
Wow to findadeath.com. If John Waters doesn’t know about this he needs to find out now! 🙂
Thanx for all the great feedback! Alisia Waller, “dead on” with the John Waters comment. If I seem brief in my descriptions it’s because I’m like a kid at X-mas…don’t want to know what’s in the box before I open it!
