Without further ado, here’s the band’s Top 10 Favorite Horror Films with a few comments as to why they were chosen:
The Exorcist – Saw this movie alone when I was like 8 years old. Scarred for life! This is the only really scary movie ever made.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose – I woke up at 2am home alone and this movie was playing…creeped the hell out of me.
Halloween – Love how Rob Zombie remade it. Well done!
Nightmare on Elm Street – CLASSIC… I wonder if Tom Green based the title “Freddy Got Fingered” off of this movie…ha.
The Strangers – This movie is great for a date night. Your girl will be all up on your business in no time.
Vacancy – Kate Beckinsale is a bombshell!
Hostel – Sickest concept…in a bad way! But I think that’s what the director was going for…so well done.
The Hills Have Eyes – One of the most fucked up films I’ve ever seen in my life.
The Devil’s Rejects – Sick and twisted…Rob Zombie should be monitored on a daily basis. He probably kills people.
From Dusk Till Dawn – George Clooney, Tarantino, Cheech!!!!!! Watching this movie is always a good idea! Classic!
