NEW 30 question horror challenge! [PART4: FINALE]

At last, we are at the final chapter of this NEW horror challenge. In this edition, I will be concluding the challenge with questions #20 to #30. When finished this segment of the challenge, the regular posts will resume as they used to. Now onto the FINAL 10 questions!

———————————————————————————–

# 21 - Your favorite medical horror film

I won't lie, when I first saw Re-Animator, I didn't know quite what to feel about the film. I expected a scary film; enough to turn me away from hospitals/doctors. Instead, I got something more- an awesome film, with Jeffrey Combs being just as insane as I hoped.

# 22 - Your favorite horror themed TV show

For those who couldn't already tell, the above picture is BloodyFace from [season2] of American Horror Story; which is the horror themed TV show I've chosen for this list. The show is an anthology, where every season is different. We've had a haunted house[season1], an insane asylum [which is where BloodyFace is from], and a Coven of witches[season3]- which I need to start. immediately.

 # 23 - Your favorite made for TV horror film

The Woman In Black from 1989 doesn't get the praise it deserves. I mean, sure- it isn't the half decent remake with Harry Potter.. I mean, Daniel Radcliffe, but it's still a fascinating watch. I feel like the ending in the remake was changed though, when I think about it.

# 24 - Horror film in which you prefer the edited version over the director’s cut

I like Dawn Of The Dead, I love the original cut, but at times, it feels way too fucking long, and I think that's the only reason, I prefer the edited down version. The film is a masterpiece either way. Like zombies? go and check this film out ASAP!

# 25 - A horror film that you used to hate, but now like


I hope you like cheesy movies, because the Puppetmaster series are some of the cheesiest things I've ever watched. This was actually the reason I didn't like the films at first: they were way too ridiculous! But after continuing the series [there's 9 of them total] I found that although they get progressively worse, it's what makes them enjoyable.. not to mention Blade is an fucking bad-ass! [as seen above]

# 26 - Your favorite horror film to watch as a child

Although it used to scare me, like most horror films did when I was younger; Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors was [and still is] my favorite chapter of the Freddy Krueger series.. I promise, it's not just because of Patricia Arquette.

# 27 - Your favorite guilty pleasure horror film

 Another film that's a given on this list is one of my favorite films of the past few years, if not one of my all time favorites: The Cabin In The Woods.. Richard Jenkins yelling "Fuck You!" to a bunch of 9 year old girls [even if it's through a TV screen] has quickly become my favorite thing in a horror movie, if not cinematic history . [honorable mention: SAW and it's sequels]

# 28 - Your favorite horror film that no one’s ever heard of

Oh, Leslie Vernon.. We your fans know you deserve your sequel/prequel, but not enough people know about you, so instead we got stuck with a fifth sequel to Wrong Turn.. ugh. okay. I've ranted on this before here, but Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon is a fantastic film that not a lot of people have heard of [and if you haven't, get on that!] it deserves it's prequel, because it needs to continue. that's all I'm saying; check it out- it's probably on Netflix..don't hold me to that last part though.

# 29 - Your least favorite horror film of all time 
http://karlails.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/a-nightmare-on-elm-street-13-4-10-kc.jpg 

I really don't want to get into a huge heated complaint here, so I'll make this one quick - this remake that was willing to call itself A Nightmare On Elm Street was terrible. I love Jackie Earle Haley, and in no way is this his fault, but Freddy is a burn victim.. not a wet fish! [at least that's what I see..] How this movie won the people's choice award for 'best horror movie' [of it's year] is beyond me. [author's tip: if you're a fan of the original and haven't seen this remake. just don't. you're welcome]

# 30 - Your favorite horror film of all time

http://www.thatfilmguy.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/The-Evil-Dead.jpg 

Although I'm pretty sure it's already been said in this challenge, it's a fairly obvious choice: The Evil Dead by Sam Raimi with Bruce Campbell starring is easily my favorite horror film. I've seen it a bunch of times, I can absolutely say I know it by heart, and best of all - it's actually a fairly terrifying film! It's everything anyone wants from a horror; and I'm glad it's at the top of my list of faves. [honorable mentions: too many to list. check my Letterboxd account here instead: saves us both time]
