NEW 30 question horror challenge! [PART3]

So on this edition of the NEW 30 question horror challenge; I'm going to get to question #20; this way, I'm a little more than half way, and I don't have this challenge in more than [at most] 6 parts. [that would be too much reading, am I right?] So head to the jump to begin with my answer to question number #13 and on!

# 13 - Your favorite horror comedy

Not only is Zombieland a fun flick, it actually fits most, if not all, of the typical zombie tropes. I really need to re-watch this film; it's been far too long. Let's not forget the real reason we all went to see this film: Emma Stone killing fucking zombies- sexy stuff!

# 14 - Your favorite zombie film

Day Of The Dead earned my respect from the first time I saw it because of it's visuals, [I mean, see above!] and it's pure imagination. Everything in it is what you want from a zombie film. Fear, violence, and the gore; and is there ever gore in this one.. spectacular work to the effects artists!

 # 15 - Your favorite horror film involving serial killers

I'm usually a slasher flick kinda guy, but when it comes to serial killers in horror films, THE DEVIL'S REJECTS was obviously the first film on my mind. It's one of my favorites of the genre, and the acting [well, Sherry Moon- although hot- I mean, she isn't the greatest actress] made the actors feel like they were the characters they were playing! Shout out to Danny Trejo for being in this movie - fucking love that man; and I don't even know why. [honorable mentions: The Strangers]

 # 16 - Your favorite childhood themed horror film

When I was younger, I actually didn't like horror films as much as I do now [I even cowered away at Signs; I mean, those were scary aliens!] but if there was one that I liked every time it came on TV [and now have both in my collection!] it was Gremlins! [it counts as horror, right? I mean a Gremlin gets put in a microwave and explodes; that's pretty scarring.]..I still need a Mogwai. and a life.

# 17 - Your favorite horror film remake

Before I start, I just want to say I'm a huge fan of Sam Raimi's original masterpiece The Evil Dead. It always stands out as one of my favorites ever, and I was really nervous when I heard about an Evil Dead remake in the works- however, it was over 9000 [see what I did there?] times better than I expected, and that after credits bit? perfection! This was a good remake- and I need to see more of Fede Alverez's directorial work. Also, Jane Levy is hot. [maybe not as a deadite as seen above though..] there, I said it. Someone had to, right?

# 18 - Your favorite foreign horror film [outside of your country of origin]

I'll admit right now that I haven't seen a lot of foreign horror films [I'm working on it though!] but the ones I have seen, have mainly been Korean. For this question, I have to go to a new favorite I recently discovered, known only as I Saw The Devil. It's a lot to take in; but it's done masterfully - read my review on this masterpiece here. [honorable mention: the original Oldboy. but I feel that it's more of a thriller/crime film, rather than strictly horror: my Oldboy review can be found here.]

# 19 - Your favorite horror film involving the powers of Hell or Satanism

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-H_weVcLhfeY/UP6l5IpslfI/AAAAAAAAFsY/tL5JoGeRQI8/s1600/Hellraiser+Cenobites.jpg 

Hellraiser is one hell of a film, and it certainly still stands up to competitors today. [well, maybe the first few films. not the dozen unnecessary sequels] Pinhead is one of my favorite horror icons, but I have to side with the Chatterer [as seen on the left in the picture above] for favorite cenobite.

# 20 - Your favorite horror film involving a killer animal

JAWS. I'm not going to say anything about why I chose this film because everyone [and I mean everyone] has seen it; and if not - you need to hurry the fuck up and get on that. stat. 'GET OUTTA THE WATER!'
