It is the last day of October. It is also Halloween. I have decided that sporadically throughout November, while I am killing myself doing NaNo, I am going to be posting my Top 5's because they are easy and quick and I can still talk about the things I want to talk about. Also, I will be able to keep my blog on the schedule I want to keep (i.e.; Beauty Tuesday, Watchful Wednesday, Thankful Thursday, Fit Friday, etc.).
For today's Top 5's I am actually going to do two groups. The first is going to be the Top 5 Scariest Movies I have ever seen. These will essentially be the movies I never, ever, ever want to see again (except one). Or maybe those that just won't leave me because they were so disturbing.
The second group is my Top 5 Halloween Candy choices. Which basically means the ones I steal from my kids, buy and eat before Halloween or those I call piece de resistance.
So, without further ado, I give you the Top 5 scariest movies ever according to Kat...
1. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) :: I don't remember how or why but I know I saw this on TV. Might have been on a premium movie channel but it was right around the time it came out. This was the first "horror" I ever saw and pretty much decided my feelings about the genre. Yeah, I couldn't sleep for days. My issues with horror have mostly to do with "evil."
2. Creepshow (1982) :: Specifically, "They're Creeping Up on You!" which is
the cockroach one. Stephen King wrote most of the segments and is the master of scary, in my opinion, but this is the only one of his that made my list. LOL I don't do cockroaches. They are my only creepy crawly that I really go insane when I see. I've actually quit jobs & moved because of them. Yeah. Issues.
3. Two Thousand Maniacs! (1964) :: This is just a weird, disturbing one. People lured to a deep southern town, and tortured, eaten even; only for the town to completely disappear. They made sequels to this but I found the original uniquely horrifying. I watched this just a few years ago because the name was familiar. It's not leaving.
4. The Amityville Horror (1979) :: Touted as a "true story" this movie scared the be-snotties outta me. Now that I think about it, this was actually my first "horror," and it was definitely evil. I read the book and that was probably not a good idea. I found out later it was a hoax and that's why I'm such a stickler for facts. Well, one of the reasons.
5. Jaws (1975) :: I do not consider this a "horror" by any means, it was just scary and, no, I couldn't go back in the water for a while. And yes, I saw this in the theater when it came out. Multiple times. What was I thinking? This movie will probably appear again on my Top 5 movies I watch over and over again. LOL
and, the Top 5 candies I cannot resist (and should not even have in the house).
1. Reese's Cups
2. Reese's Pieces
3. Reese's Mini Cups
4. Peanut M&M's
My kids know me. If it isn't chocolate it's not worth it. And if it doesn't have peanut butter (or peanuts) don't even bother me with it.
I'm pretty easy.
