Itâ€™s a Horror to Know You: Lottie of Millhaven!
1. What is the first film that ever scared you?
That would either be Return to Oz (Which I now love!) or House (1986)
2. What is the last film that scared you?
The weird otherworldly scene in Insidious kinda creeped me out, as did The Strangers.
3. Name three Horror movies that you believe are underrated.
1.Ice from the Sun (Really low budget, some iffy acting, but has some amazing atmosphere and some really good ideas.)
2.Necromentia (See above. ALso, I’m still freaked out by The Mr. Skinny Show segment.)
3.The Supernaturals (not only is it pretty spooky, but it has LeVar Burton in it!)
*Special bonus film!* House of the Devil (Totally digging the 80’s vibe here!)
*Special bonus film pt 2!* Darkness (2002)
*Special bonus film pt 3:The revenge!!!* Phantasm (1979)
4. Name three horror movies that you enjoy against your better judgment.
1.The Mangler (There is sooo much wrong with this movie,but somehow, its sooo right)
2.Bloody New Year (Which is totally watchable due to utter insanity)
3.Santa’s Slay/Leprechaun/Rumpelstiltskin (All pretty much the same movie, all pretty much terrible, but I’m a sucker for that kinda thing)
I’m a big fan of Return to Oz too. I’ll take it over the original any day for the wheelers alone. I’ve never heard of Necromentia but I’ve decided after viewing the Mr. Skinny show clip that I’m too scared to watch any more of it! If anyone would like to see The Supernaturals it is currently available in full on Youtube!
Also, I’m now dreaming of an Avengers-style team up of Santa’s Slay, Leprechaun and Rumpelstiltskin!
I never would have expected Return To Oz to hold up when watched as an adult, but a couple of years ago when I revisited it for the first time since childhood I was very impressed.
The Strangers totally creeped me out! Back in the fall, one evening I was considering what movie to watch when someone knocked loudly on my front door. When I peeked out the side window, I did not see anyone and there were no cars around. It immediately made me think of The Strangers and I was spooked the rest of the night.
I also enjoy The Supernaturals. I saw it the first time in the early 90s on The Movie Channel. It was during August when they did not repeat movies. I thought it was pretty good.
Mr. Skinny, now *there’s* a walking nightmare. What is it about pigs? They’re either really cute or horrifying.
Santa’s Slay is a little funnier than Leprechaun and Rumplestiltskin. I would give it more credit for the opening scene alone!
