Top 10 Horror Films Of All Time

Happy Halloween everyone! Here’s my Top Ten horror films of all time.

Read..if you dare!

10: “Poltergeist”

Starring: Craig T. Nelson, JoBeth Williams, Heather O’Rourke, and Zelda Rubenstein.

This ghoulish classic follows the Freeling family, and their fight against a mysterious force. I would consider this to be one of the first horror films to show a child. Heh, is that mean? I don’t care. It might get them to turn off the TV.

They’re here!

9. “Scream”

Starring: Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courtney Cox, Drew Barrymore, Rose McGowan, Jamie Kennedy, Skeet Ulrich, Matthew Lillard

In my opinion, “Scream” redefined the horror genre in the 1990’s. The film had a new premise, making fun of previous horror films. “The Rules” scene is one of the best in horror history..because it’s true. The film delivered some laughs, but ultimately served up some great scares. The marketing brilliance of having Drew Barrymore promote the film as if she’s the star, and be killed off in the first 20 minutes, really sets up the “Holy crap anything can happen” vibe. Wes Craven’s first entry on my list.

8. “The Haunting”

The Haunting

Starring: Julie Harris, Claire Bloom, Russ Tamblyn, Richard Johnson.

The film follows a group of people invited to stay overnight at a haunted house. It’s not “Scary” by jump factor, it’s scary watching Julie Harris’ character going absolutely insane.

7. “The Omen”

Starring: Gregory Peck and Lee Remick

This film chronicles an American diplomat stationed in Rome, who loses his first child via miscarriage. He and his wife are then given a chance to adopt an orphan, named Damien. Strange and murderous things start happening, and they learn their son is the Antichrist. Pretty freaky film. If your name is Damien, and I don’t speak to you..now you know why.

 

6. “A Nightmare On Elm Street”

Starring: Robert Englund, Heather Langemkamp, Amanda Wyss, Johnny Depp.

Freddy Krueger is creepy. I get it. The part that freaks me out, is that in a dream world, everything is supposed to be OK. Well, not in this dream world. Some of the sequels are decent but PLEASE STAY AWAY from the remake.

5. “The Night Of The Living Dead”

Starring: Duane Jones and Judith O’Dea

Romero’s classic about strangers sheltered together during a zombie invasion. Being in black and white, the film terrifies me even more. Eat your heart out, Rick Grimes.

4. “The Shining”

the-shining-original

Starring: Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall

In one of his most iconic roles, Jack Nicholson delivers as writer-gone-mad, Jack Torrance. He moves into a snowed in hotel with his wife and son, who has psychic abilities. This is possibly one of the best films of all time in my book. REDRUM.

 

3. “Psycho”

Psycho_(1960)

Starring: Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, Janet Leigh

Probably..the most important horror film. Ever. “Psycho” was noted as starting the “slasher genre” as we know it today. Hitchcock crafted one of the most iconic scenes ever..the shower scene. You know you check the bathroom while you’re in the shower making sure no ones in there. A masterpiece.

2. “Halloween”

Starring: Donald Pleasence, Jamie Lee Curtis, Charles Cyphers, Nancy Loomis, PJ Soles

The tone of “Halloween” is what makes it my favorite film of all time. Not the scariest, however. “Halloween” isn’t gory, and it shouldn’t have to be. The tense music, and brilliant scares is what sets the film apart from any other slasher film. Donald Pleasence is brilliant as Dr. Loomis. Jamie Lee Curtis was the perfect actress to play Laurie Strode. Quiet, naive, and subtle. Since 1978..the holiday of Halloween has NEVER been the same.

 

1. “The Exorcist”

Starring: Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow, Jason Miller, Linda Blair

OK. This film absolutely terrifies me. It probably has something to do with the whole demonic possession thing. Yup. That’s it.  And the fact that it happened in Prince George’s County in the 1940’s? Son of a. I wasn’t allowed to watch the film until I was 16 years old. I didn’t sleep for three days. The eerie use of “Tubular Bells” and that damn demonic face popping up everywhere sealed the deal.

GET THE LED OUT TO PERFORM AT APG FEDERAL CREDIT UNION ARENA

Acclaimed Led Zeppelin Tribute Band’s Special Appearance is Part of Nation-Wide Tour

Baltimore, MD — Get The Led Out, the “American Led Zeppelin”, will be performing at the APG Federal Credit Union Arena on October 25 as part of its nation-wide tour. During this epic show, the phenomenal tribute band will recreate the recorded music of Led Zeppelin with the studio overdubs that the “mighty Zep” was never able to recreate on the concert stage themselves. When one hears three guitars on the album, Get The Led Out delivers three guitars on stage. Get The Led Out brings what the audience wants … a high energy, Zeppelin concert with an honest heart-thumping intensity.

Having amassed a large tour following, Get The Led Out has performed at theaters across the country and recently headlined Red Rocks in September. The band has become so popular, in fact, that guitarist Paul Hammond was recently featured in Guitar Player magazine (June 2014) and the lead singer Paul Sinclair was asked to join the Zac Brown Band on stage at two recent concerts. Its bass player Billy Childs was even a founding member of the 80s hit band Britny Fox and guitarist and piano player Andrew Lipke is an accomplished musician and composer.
