Remember Dark Shadows

For some reason I have always enjoyed horror shows. Dracula, Frankenstein, Psycho and the Exorcist are some shows involving the supernatural that kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. Last night I enjoyed a good round of Ghost Hunters International although I found it somewhat tame, but I am very excited about the upcoming Dark Shadows Movie that is schedules to come out in 2010. Let's take a little trip down memory lane when Bactine enjoyed popularity.

Wow! That was fantastic. I have never spent much time watching old movies like that. I can definitely understand the fascination, though.

What fun! Totally put today's gory flicks to shame. :)

Oh my, you took it way back! My mom got me hooked on Dark Shadows in the 90s when it had a brief run in syndication. I forget what station aired the reruns. Is this one of those things Jamaicans love that we can't explain, like country music?

Hi Dee,

I used to LOVE all those scary movies. I remember when I was a pre-teen/teen and absoutely loved movies like Poltergeist, Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. They were all the originals at the time and were just hitting the theaters. We absolutely loved those kinds of movies and couldn't get enough. I also remember The Amityville Horror. I read the book and saw the movie at a fairly young age and it affected me for a long time. I hated seeing 3:15 on the clock in the middle of the night. It scared me so badly! Actually, I STILL hate to wake up at that time! :o)

Now, I just don't like any of the scary, suspenseful movies anymore. 1) I've become a chicken in my old age and 2) the suspense makes my heart beat faster and that is not good for me. So, I have pretty much given up most of those type TV shows and movies. One thing I do know, though, is that most of the 'scary movies' today aren't near as good as the ones we used to watch when we were young. They have totally ruined all the classics like Friday the 13th with all the remakes. Sometimes you just need to leave a good thing alone, ya know?

Thanks for stopping by my blog again. I really appreciate it!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Oh, man! They should bring this back to cable TV somewhere, I'd totally watch it - I've never seen this before.

One of the scariest movies I have ever seen is "1408" starring John Cusack. My husband brought it home knowing full well I can't even watch the Shining unless it is daylight and suggested we watch it one evening - he told me NOTHING about the movie. I thought I was going to crawl into the couch and cut off all the circulation to my husband's hand.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

YIKES!! I have such a love hate relationship with horror flicks. I can't seem to resist them for some reason. Then I hate myself for watching them because I'll be freaked out for weeks. lol
