No matter what you’re doing this weekend, you’ll probably find yourself wanting to watch at least one scary movie.  Since it’s such a spooky weekend, I thought I’d take a moment to share with you my three favourite scary movies. Chances are you haven’t seen them, so you’ll have to just trust me, these are the three movies you’re looking for!

Dawn of The Dead (remake).  I don’t know how many times I’ve seen this movie, which stars Sarah Polley.  It is one of those movies that the second that I see it’s on, I stop whatever I’m doing and watch it, even though I already own it.  I love it.  Scary, smart and lots and lots of gore. Definitely a must for fans of The Walking Dead.

The Mist. Not very many people know about this movie, but the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s book is terrifying, sad and seems like it could be all too real, I mean besides the monsters living in the Mist, the really scary things that happen are all cause by the humans trapped by the mysterious fog, yeah I’m looking at you Marcia Gay Harden. Oh and the last five minutes?  Unforgettable.

Drag Me To Hell. Sure people love Sam Raimi for his Spiderman movies or Evil Dead.  But me, well I love the director for his little seen Drag Me to Hell.  And while it wasn’t a box office hit, the 92% it has on Rotten Tomatoes cannot lie, this is a fantastically scary movie.  It really is a roller coaster and it’s one of those movies that I would base friendships on.  If you don’t like its humour, its scares and the twists and turns, then I don’t know if we could be friends!

Honourable mention goes to Scream 1, 2 and 4, Halloween, The Ring and The Others.

What are you favourite scary movies?
