My top ten favourite movies:
Well this one sure is going to be hard; I'm a huge fan of all types of movies, with thriller/horror mainly being my favourite.
1 - The Rocky Horror Picture Show
A classic off-the-wall kind of movie released in 1975 and had many mixed reviews when it was released, and still does to this day! I adore this movie, it's entertaining, sensual, over the top, with great songs that will be stuck in your head for a long time. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a B-movie (low budget) but doesn't leave anything lacking in my eyes. A movie I've watched so many times I've lost count! Absolute pleasure!
2 - Halloween
Halloween to me is pure genius, and again another low budget movie, which shows that you don't need fancy effects and tons of money to make a good film. The character of Michael Myers is a brilliant, serial killing silent hunter, with his family being number one on his hit list. Though released in 1978, this movie can sure beat most horrors of today.
3 - Knocked Up
A fantastic giggle-fest of a movie, I didn't know of this film until me and my partner was flicking the channels and this had just started. Dramas of a drunken one night stand, the forced-couples' frantic arguments with one another was just a laugh a minute! The next day after watching we went and got it on DVD we liked it so much.
4 - Candyman
The chilling adaptation of a Clive Barker story holds everything that a horror movie should have. Psychological and creepy without being over the top with gore. The tale of a lost soul called Candyman who is bought to life by the whispers of the people in town. With the main villain being played by the excellent Tony Todd, his voice will send chills down your spine.
5 - The Crow
So many things I love about this movie, so many things that could be said. A film in my eyes that can not be faulted in any way, shape or form apart from the tragic death of Brandon Lee (The Crow aka Eric Draven). An accident whilst on set making The Crow in 1994. I find this passionate revenge plot works tremendous on so many levels, so much that itss hard not to like this film! The only downside is the many poor sequels that follow on are a complete waste of time and money.
6 - American Psycho
Patrick Bateman is a self-obsessed, image-conscious, selfish, wealthy yuppie in his late 20's. Set in the 1980's, when the most important thing in his culture is to 'FIT. IN.' as Patrick himself would say. Aside from the expensive dinners, Valentino suits, hair styles and exercise routines, the other thing Patrick Bateman is obsessed with is murder and killing. Played by Christian Bale, Patrick Bateman portrays a fascinating and very believable villian.
7 - Jeepers Creepers
A very over-looked movie, though it didn't have a big budget, they worked will with what they had. The identity of the Creeper remains a mystery for the most part of the film. He may or may not be human, and all we know is that he is disposing bodies underground is a rural area of America. When two teenagers stumble upon his lair, the Creeper sets out to add them to his collection.
8 - The Lost Boys
This movie should hit high on most peoples lists. The first time I watched this movie I was quite young and my brother had rented it to watch with his friends and I fell in love! The vampire clique, taking on a new member. The hunt to find the head vampire to stop this evil mess from taking over. I've watched this movie so many times now I can tell you line from line of the movie (how sad am I!)
9 - Interview With The Vampire
The only Tom Cruise film I can truly say I like. The idea from for this movie came from the book by Ann Rice, and being a huge fan of her work this movie wasn't a let down at all. It was released in 1995 but doesn't feel that long! It's still a highly watched movie in my collection on vampire flicks. "Drink from me and live forever!"
10 - The Nightmare Before Christmas
From the director Tim Burton, this man's outstanding ability to transform his animation into movie is sheer brilliance come to life. I love all Tim Burton's pieces, but this one has always been and always will be a favourite of mine. Nightmare Before Christmas hit the UK in 1994 the animation for that time were simply out of this world, living up to animations of today's time.
So there you have it, my top ten! This was really hard putting down a top ten as I have so many movies I could add to this list! E.g., Saw, Terminator, Pretty in Pink, Scream, Vampire Circus, Countess Dracula, but I better stop there as my list is really endless. I'm besotted by so many movies old and new.
Thanks for reading!
