Those scary moments

A suitable final post on Halloween night.. The public has voted their 100 Scary Moments, via this Channel 4 site and there are some interview clips from the show. Although, if I was to choose a top five, The Night of The Hunter, Alien and Ring would definitely be among them.. to name a few.. ANYway.. there’s a Scary Moments quiz too

You scored: 20/20

You are the hardnut of horror. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a bit of a psychopathic gleam in your eye. Your name’s not Michael Myers is it?


  • Emily

    Why does everybody think Halloween is such a scary movie. I’ve seen snails quicker than Mike Meyers. How can you not get away from that guy? All you have to do is run.

  • Pete Baker

    That should be run fast, Emily.. but I agree.. it’s not in my top ten.. that’s for sure.

  • How is the Blair Witch Project there? That’s not scary. I love the Family Guy spoof on that which you can listen to here.

  • Dread Cthulhu

    Not to get into a debate over the “rules” of a horror movie, Michael Meyers is scary because he is unstoppable, regardless of how fast he is or isn’t. Shoot him, stab him, burn him, hit him with a car — he just keeps going. Running from him only means you’ll die tired or live to be chased in the sequel.

    The *REAL* problem is the sequel, especially where the original movie didn’t plan for one. Eventually, you get “Jason in Space,” or Freddie riffing on Belushi’s “samurai deli” routine.

    The Thing is:

    Why is the Thing only 17th. This is a real fill your trousers special! Don’t watch alone or if considering relocation to Antarctica.

  • Donnie Moi

    “This is a real fill your trousers special!”

    Isn’t that anything with Angelina Jolie 🙂

  • Concerned Loyalist

    I got 12 out of 2O in the quiz. Horror isn’t my favourite genre so 60% ain’t bad!

    Jason Vorhees used to scare the hell out of me when I was young. I remember watching “Friday 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan” at my cousin’s house at Hallowe’en, when I was about 11…I couldn’t get to sleep for hours! lol.

  • Aidan

    Friday the 13th..of July is pretty scary.

  • The Singing Ringing Tree – strange stuff is always more frightening. Although I pissed my pants with laughter when the Fast Show did a spoof of the programme.
