Sol I asked Monty to recommend some Horror films to watch – here are his picks:
1. To watch with the whole family
2. To watch with “the boys”
3. To watch on a date
4. To watch alone
5. To never watch in the dark
6. To watch only in the dark
7. To watch because of an actor/actress
8. To watch because of the topic
9. To avoid
Thank you, Monty. I hope that our readers now have caught some ideas what to watch this Halloween. Is there any film you’ll watch every Halloween? Kind of “Hawe’s Halloween Classics”..?
I usually watch Psycho every Halloween or some Hitchcock film.
As far as a more modern film, The Descent is one of my favorites, that I watch around this time every year.
I see.. At Palfy’s every year I MARRIED A WITCH (1942) and ARSENIC AND OLD LACE (1944) are shown – as are THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (1993) or CORPSE BRIDE (2005) - and there is of course the Palfy ADDAMS FAMILY marathon (the original TV show of course..).. All of them no "real" horror films – but they are really nice to watch. But let’s go on with the interview:
What makes a Horror film really creepy for you? What scares you the most?
I love it when something jumps out of nowhere or from the shadows to give a scare. Sometimes not seeing something is more scary than actually seeing it.
Oh, I completely agree with that, Monty..
Is there anything you are afraid to watch? One film you don’t want to watch because you think it might be too scary? Or one you were afraid to watch? Maybe one which later was quite lame?
I don’t think there is one..well I haven’t came across one yet.
The Excorcist still gives me the creeps but I will watch it. Sometimes with the lights on though. When I was a kid, it used to the first Alien film. Scared the crap out of me. It’s a great film, I just don’t get scared when I watch it now.
I see. Thank you again, Monty, for your answers.
A happy Halloween to everyone!!
