What makes this movie is scary is not knowing who the murderer really is. You may think you know... but just you wait. Plus, once you feel as if you have it all figured out, they throw another whammy at you. Seriously, the first time I saw this movie I totally freaked out, jumped off the couch, and screamed was kinda shocked in the final moment of the movie. And no matter how many times I've seen it, that final scene always seems to get me.
Having all the murders occur from the perspective of the killer (a classic horror film technique) coupled with the chilling music is also a great part of the movie. So if you have not seen this one, I definitely recommend it. Classic scary movie would be an understatement. This is a true must-see for horror film lovers.
In other news, ABC Family's 11th annual 13 Nights of Halloween begins tonight with The Goonies (well, officially it started last night but there was no movie - just a special Halloween themed episode of America's Funniest Home Videos). They will also be showing Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride, The Haunted Mansion, Scooby-Doo, Beetle Juice, The Addams Family, The Mask, and Hocus Pocus. They definitely have some fun movies in the line up this year (especially Hocus Pocus!). Not sure if any of these are scary, but they are Halloween-ish and therefore holiday-appropriate. So if you are looking for some fun flicks to get you in the spooky mood be sure to tune in to ABC Family!
