October has been my favorite month ever since I was a little girl. Back then, it was for the selfish reason that it's my birth month.  Now, as an adult, I have come to love October because, in honor of Halloween, October equals scary movie month.

I don't know what it is about scary movies but I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!! I can't get enough. I often wonder if there is something wrong with me. I mean why do I like horror films so much?  I am not a violent person. The sight of blood makes me queasy. So why is it when it is on the big screen, it is all OK and even appealing? I don't have an answer but I do have some favorite horror films. So if you, like me, have an inkling towards the macabre, here are five films I'd recommend viewing.

1.  The Shining -  This movie never ceases to be scary. It is a classic Stanley Kubrick film based on the novel by Stephen King. It stars Jack Nicholson and he has never been better or scarier. If you take away one thing and one thing only from this film it's, REDRUM!

2.  The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Original version) - The remake was terrible so if you have never seen the original 70's film, you must.  Texas has always seemed a little scary and this film confirms it.  Now whenever I hear a chainsaw fire up, I bolt!

3.  Ils (Them) - This is a French-Romanian horror film that blew me away when I first saw it. It is based on actual events (which always makes things scarier) and is 77 minutes of pure fear. I watched the entire film through a slit in my fingers with my hands across my face in a fetal position. No Joke!!!!!

4.  The Descent - Spelunking has always terrified me but this film assured me that I will never go crawling around in caves. My God, women can be so cruel, especially when they don't know who or what is watching them!!!!

5.  Halloween - Again, the original Halloween, not the remake. I haven't seen the Rob Zombie version but I always believe you shouldn't mess with a good thing and believe me; the original is a good thing. Jamie Lee Curtis stars in this film and she is brilliant as the sister of the crazed killer who enacts revenge on her.  Watch it this month in honor of Halloween if you dare!!!

I must say, I am a horror movie person, I mean I am really crazy about it. Whenever I see something like that, i get excited and scared, feeling kind of mixed, and I love it, like last time, i was watching The Final Destination IV, btw, The Final Destination is my favorite series of movie, I love it to death. And I have never celebrated for Halloween before and I have no idea what it is like. Well, I am in China, and I don't think it is as pop as it is in the Western World, it is not very common in China to celebrate it. Whatever, I love scary movies, and that's all that matters!
