Here’s my attempt at the Horror Lover Challenge, revised and expanded from the version posted on Twitter. I’ll expand on some of these even further in later instalments, so that’s something to look forward to. Or not, no skin off my nose.
SCARIEST KID IN A HORROR MOVIE
Damien Thorn in The Omen. Creepy.
BEST SEX SCENE MURDER
The couple in the tent from Jason Goes to Hell. See? It’s not completely beyond redemption.
CREEPIEST DEAD BODY
Joyce Summers in Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The Body. Putting a normal death in amongst all the vampire and demon weirdness made it even creepier.
A HORROR MUSICAL YOU ENJOY
Little Shop of Horrors. Better songs than Rocky Horror Picture Show and it’s actually watchable all the way through.
FUNNIEST HORROR MOVIE CHARACTER
Today I’d say Shaun & Ed from Shaun of the Dead. Tomorrow it may change.
FAVOURITE WOMAN IN THE WORLD OF HORROR
Probably Danielle Harris. Yes, that’s at least partially based on appearance.
A HORROR YOU'D BE IN
Cabin in the Woods. I’d work in The Facility. Wouldn’t you?
FAVOURITE ALIEN-RELATED HORROR MOVIE
BEST HORROR TV SERIES
Currently Hannibal, but I’ll be talking about this a lot in a later entry.
A SERIAL KILLER YOU HATE
Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates. One of the few things that sort-of worked in the Psycho remake was the cast, except for Vince Vaughn. Fantasy casting for that role would probably be Jon Cryer.
MOST DITZY CHARACTER
Misty in Hatchet. So dumb. So wonderfully dumb.
FAVOURITE HORROR MOVIE FROM THE PAST YEAR
Cabin in the Woods. Alright, it’s closer to 18 months ago now, but this is an expansion of an older list so it’s staying.
Adam Buxton in Hot Fuzz. Impaled by a massive stone church spire counts, right?
KILLER WHO HAS THE BEST WEAPON
Freddy Krueger. Anyone can use a machete or a chainsaw, but that glove is all his.
A HORROR LOVE-STORY
J'aime Gomez et Morticia Addams. "Tish, that's French!"
BEST THROAT SLICING
Annie in the original Friday The 13th.
Either Friday the 13th Part II or Psycho II. Both so much better than they needed to be.
BEST HORROR MOVIE IN THE WOODS
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives.
AN ACTOR YOU ENJOYED WATCHING GET MURDERED
Glazer, The Burning.
MOST ATTRACTIVE HORROR MOVIE KILLER
The human version of Tiffany in Bride of Chucky. Yum. (Watch BOUND)
BEST FAMILY IN HORROR
Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly From Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly
WORST RECENT HORROR MOVIE YOU'VE SEEN
I’ve not seen a bad recent horror movie. I’m picky about what I watch.
FAVOURITE 1970s HORROR
if I say Halloween, Dawn of the Dead or Jaws, everyone’s going to yawn... so I’ll go a little further down the list and pick Death Line, the Flesh & Blood Show or Unman, Wittering & Zigo. More on this in a later entry too.
FAVOURITE HORROR THEME SON
All My Friends Are Dead from Cold Prey
BEST VERSION OF JASON VOORHEES
Best actor is Kane Hodder, but I don’t like the battered look they give him. Best outfit is Ken Kirzinger in FvJ but he’s not Kane. So I’ll say the beginning of Jason X as the best balance of look with actor. (Derek Mears gives the second best performance...)
A HORROR YOU CAN'T WAIT TO SEE
Curse of Chucky and Hatchet III
Laurie/Keri to Michael in Halloween H20. A perfect end to the saga. What sequel?
Going on the purest definition, The Wicker Man. (Played as the B-Picture with Don't Look Now)
MOST RIGHTEOUS KILLER
Cassie Hack from Hack/Slash
HORROR WITH AN ENDING YOU DIDN'T EXPECT TO HAPPEN –
The Mist. I expected the original ending, not... that. Wow.
