The Lady of the Hill

In honor of this special day, I looked up haunted places in my area.

The one that I am most familiar with and have actually visited is the city’s oldest high school. Its called El Paso High School. Visually, its one of the most beautiful buildings you will see in your life.

Nicknamed “The Lady of the Hill”, the school sits on a mountainside and stands out prominently on the horizon commanding a view of the city. Opened in 1916, the Greco-Roman features of El Paso High made it a unique landmark in town.

The ground floor is below street level. The second floor is at street level, and its two perpendicular wings connect at a 45-degree angle with a heavily decorated Corinthian porch or pavilion. This overlooks the football stadium.

It is truly an oasis in our desert.

However, you may not want to be there after dark. Usually around 2 a.m.  the faint notes of the high school’s fight song begin to sound, then, more clearly, cheerleaders cheering and students laughing, and stamping feet cascading into a pep rally – in a locked empty auditorium.

At this point, you are hearing ghosts.

Tobias H. “Toby” Tovar, 55, a math instructor at El Paso High School,  insists that the high school is the most haunted building in El Paso.

Since the construction, there have been many modifications done to the school to accommodate the growing student body. Because of that, many of the original classrooms and hallways are no more, but there are stories that some of the modifications were done because of spirits that seem to have an affinity for certain areas of the building.

It is said that there is a hall that leads to a balcony that is also closed off.  People say they have seen an image of a girl jumping from the balcony. According to the story, every single day, mist and fog roam the abandoned hallway and there seems to be some “gooey-stuff” on the ceiling. This unusual activity stems from an incident that happened nearly 35 years ago when a distraught teenage girl killed herself by slitting her wrists and then, throwing herself from a balcony at the end of the hallway. There have been enough sightings that a wall was built completely closing the stairway leading up to the haunted hallway.

It doesn’t end there. Since the day it was constructed weird things have been happening.

In the recent El Paso High School yearbook, there is a reproduction of an old photograph showing a young lady in a white dress watching the original construction of the building in 1916. However, this unknown woman was not in the original photograph. Who was she and most importantly, how did she get in the picture?

I used to work for this company that would install data and voice cable in different schools. An employee and I went to El Paso High to survey the work that would be done. I had never heard anything about the school. I remember feeling immediately freaked out even during the day with class in session. I was immediately brought to a certain area where the school kept all their memorabilia of past trophies, awards, and class pictures of years before.

As I looked through the pictures. I ran into a photo that sent chills down my back.

Here is a picture of the class of 1986. Every one is smiling and staring directly at the camera. In the photo, its clear nice day. The picture has no defects despite the time. However, while everyone is clear as day, one person is not.

The girl in the long white gown whose hair is to the side of her face. Her face is completely blurry.

The picture has not been altered or Photoshop in any way. It’s just terribly eerie how everyone is so clear and distinct and hers is disturbingly faint and fuzzy.

What’s troubling for the school is that the girl on white was not in the original negative but is in the developed photo.

The figure in the picture is at the end of a row primarily of teachers. There are two young ladies, one toward the right end of the group and one on the left center of the group who are looking intently toward where this mysterious young lady is standing. Were these two young ladies perhaps the only ones sensitive enough to realize that something was wrong?

This mysterious girl was not part of that particular graduating class and no one in the class that was photographed admitted knowing the identity of the girl. But regardless of how she got into the picture, she is very clearly in the photograph, a lonely looking girl standing before the camera.

Tovar has tons of stories about events at the school. “About 15 years ago, it snowed in El Paso to the point that schools were closed. A few teachers and students had arrived before the closure announcement. Those teachers and students who had been able to make it to school were not allowed to leave due to unsafe road conditions. Having nothing else to do, a group of students and teachers, decided to explore the school starting with the tunnels in the basement,” he said.

At one point, several of the teachers crawled through a small opening eventually coming to a brick wall that blocked the tunnel. The bricks were old and the cement between them was crumbling, but it was clear that these bricks had been added long after the surrounding brickwork. Curious, one of the teachers pushed on the newer bricks until some gave way, revealing a large dark cavity. Pushing a flashlight through the hole, they discovered a sealed off classroom.

“This discovery surprised everyone as no one had even heard a whisper that there might be sealed off classrooms in the building,” said Tovar. The room was small and contained antique desks of the type seen in the television show Little House on the Prairie. There was no doubt that the classroom dated from the original construction of the building. The classroom was still set up with desks in place, texts and student notebooks still in place waiting for the students.

“There were Baby Ruth candy bar wrappers on the floor from a time this product sold for 5 cents as well as numerous 5-cent coke bottles. In one of the student notebooks lying on a desk, they found, in addition to algebra notes and completed problems, a very racy love letter from the owner of the book to a boy,” he explained.

The racy love letter is interesting to me because the story of the girl who slit her wrists and jumped from the balcony of the roof is said to have been depressed over a boy who didn’t return her affections. Could this be the letter of the heartbroken girl?

There was a second sealed off classroom nearby, also ready to receive students, now filled with only dust and silence. Try as they might, they were never able to discover why, two classrooms would be sealed off so fast that they would not be cleaned of debris, desks nor texts nor the students be given time to claim their personal articles.

The vast basement has been used as an overflow morgue during several of our nation’s wars. During World War II there were so many casualties shipped here that bodies had been stored in the basement until the next of kin could be notified. During the Spanish Flu Epidemic in the early part of the 1900s, so many died that the bodies were also stored in the basement of the High School.

At one point in his career in the early 1980s, Toby Tovar was the basketball coach for the 8th grade basketball team. That year, the 8th grade team was undefeated and they were scheduled to play the only other undefeated team in the city. Each afternoon the 8th grade team had gym time scheduled from 5 p.m. to 7.p.m. in the gym immediately below his classroom. A disquieting event happened during practice one day.

Just after they started practice, two waist-high access doors leading to the tunnels flew violently open, slamming back against the wall on either side. Naturally, the assumption eventually reached, even though there was little if any wind outside, was that a freak draft coming down one of the many chimneys had blown the latched doors open. The doors were shut and long heavy bench was placed in front of the doors to make sure that they would stay closed.

“The kids had gone back to their scrimmage game and they were all at the far end of the court. At about 7 p.m., the bench went flying across the court and the doors, that had been securely latched, again flew open violently,” Tovar related. Suffice it to say that this team, made up of gang members who didn’t fear the devil himself, led by a coach who, in his youth had led two tough barrio gangs, decided to leave the building without even taking the time to turn out the lights.

Another story is about the journalism teacher and the journalism staff. He and the yearbook staff would work long into the night to produce a first class yearbook. One night he sent the last students home, and planned on being close behind them, but he had a few last-minute things to do. It was almost exactly 11 p.m. when he finally left.

According to Tovar, when the journalism teacher turned toward the exit, standing in the pool of dim red light thrown by the exit sign was a young lady wearing a blue chiffon dress of the type that would be worn to the School Prom in the 1940s or 1950s. Thinking it was one of his students, asked her what she was doing there and told her to go home.

The girl turned and looked directly at him, her expression one of deep sadness. As he walked toward her, she began to become transparent and he noticed that she was not standing on the floor, but rather hovering in mid-air about a foot off of the floor. When he was only a few feet from her, she glided back into the deeper darkness of the hallway and disappeared.

Another more famous story has to do with the track coach and track team. The Track Team returned to the school very late at night after a track meet in Austin. The Track Teams’ locker room was in the area beneath Tovar’s classroom. The students came into the building to drop off their track gear and pick up their possessions they had left in their lockers.

As the students were gathering their possessions, the coach suddenly heard the sounds of the  Fight Song, cheerleaders performing their cheers and the sounds of a very spirited pep rally coming from the Second Floor Auditorium. Baffled, but thinking it might be a surprise reception for his Track Team that had just won the State Championship, the coach ran up the stairs to the second floor and, even though everything was dark, he dashed for the auditorium, a hundred feet away. Just as he reached the doors to the Auditorium, all of the sounds stopped. He found that the doors to the Auditorium were locked and he could no longer see nor hear anything.

He unlocked the Auditorium and entered. He found everything dark and quiet. There were no sounds that anyone had been there recently.  No sooner had he rejoined his students than once again they all heard the sounds of the Fight Song, cheerleaders leading cheers and voices screaming. Followed by most of the remaining students, the coach dashed back up the stairs toward the Auditorium. Once again, halfway to the door, all sounds stopped, the school was dark and silent as a tomb.

The building is steeped in history but it hides its secrets well. Doing modifications to the auditorium, workers removed the steps leading to the stage and found hidden, one or two books per step, an entire set of a Catholic Encyclopedia hidden beneath the steps. This set of books is complete, lavishly illustrated and a real treasure. How did they get inside those steps? Who put them there and most importantly, why were they placed in such an unusual hiding place?

I have been there after dark. It is the most haunting sight to see. The school itself is overpowering  in visual making it more scary to imagine what goes on behind those doors when the lights shut off for the night.

Thursday Movie Review-Change the Name to Almost Scary

Lately I have been watching a lot of movies. I am trying to catch up on all the ones I have missed. I been working hard on developing the perfect queue in my Netflix account.  Its hard work but someone has to do it. This week I saw the movie Devil.

First I have to say that I have general respect for director, M. Night Shyamalan. He has made some really good movies in my opinion.   The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable,  and even The Village were some thrilling movies.

So I was excited about the mysterious movie entitled Devil. Who wouldn’t be?

It’s firstly narrated in the beginning with a story a mother told about the devil. You know old Mexican folklore. The Devil roams around the world looking for bad individuals to torture.   The story seems to center around a detective who still grieving for his wife and son, killed in a hit-and-run five years ago.

The scene fades to what seems to be a typical day at the office takes a sudden detour into terror when the elevator becomes stuck between floors.  Right before that, a stranger jumps out of the building so the detective is sent to investigate.  Meanwhile, the five strangers who are trapped in the elevator and nothing seems to improve their situation.

The communication radio in the elevator is broken but the guards observe the individuals through the security cameras. Tensions run high among those trapped, so  the police and the detective assume the case. Without being able to contact the individuals, he tries to work out who they are, but he can only account for four of them.

Then they just start miraculously dying. The lights go out and boom one dies. And every one is a suspect.

All the while the one Hispanic security cop is freaking out because he recognizes the Devil’s work when he sees it.

There were a few parts that were intense or chilling. However it wasn’t enough. The five strangers were good enough actors and it felt that the plot was being hurried along.

Not only that I felt the movie was being spoiled by the actual cast. They basically were telling you what was going to happen in the story!

This movie had so much potential. People stuck in an elevator against the Devil!! Crazy concept. But I felt the opportunity to make this a good film was missed.  I was disappointed that the film is very light in the scare factor. In fact one of the trailers before the film elicited a bigger scare factor for a particular gentleman than anything found in DEVIL.

To make a movie (a horror movie)about the Devil, you gotta actually read the Devil’s resume!!

So in a nut shell: It’s tense but it rarely scares because all the truly horrifying things happen off camera. People only get killed when the lights go out, so you don’t actually see the deaths. There’s never a moment that’ll make you jump in your seat.  It has to go dark or you’ll know who the murderer is, and DEVIL executes those moments well, it’s just not able to make them scary. Maybe there isn’t a way to make them scary. Maybe it isn’t trying to be scary. Maybe they don’t need to be scary.

But horror movies….. YES they need to be scary! Especially if they are called DEVIL!!!!

Thursday Movie Review- Never Judge a Hillbilly by His Overalls

Normally, we do judge a book by its cover though we try not too. I know I do occasionally. Ever since the damn movie Deliverance , I was scared shitless of hillbillies and figured if I didn’t venture fat east I was safe.

However, I saw one movie that taught me a valuable lesson.

Don’t judge hillbillies. They all aren’t crazy murderers. Some are sweet guys who like to fish and drink beer and have marvelous intellect. Some can barely to talk to girls!

I am talking about…

Tucker & Dale Vs Evil

Tucker & Dale vs Evil is a hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy, doing for killer rednecks what Shaun of the Dead did for zombies. Tucker and Dale are two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated mountain house. Everything is going fine until some preppy college kids who are vacationing in the woods mistaken them for murderous backwoods psycho killing hillbillies.

And are they?

Of course not.

These two hillbillies are the most nicest, sweetest guys who are just trying to restore their “vacation home” . As was mentioned, Dale can’t talk to girls and “wouldn’t even hurt a fish.”

The story goes one young girl college student gets hurt and is rescued by Dale. Her friends think that Dale and Tucker have hurt and kidnapped her. And from there this movie turns into a hilarious misunderstanding!! As the misunderstanding gets bigger and bigger so does the body count.

This is totally what it looks like!

This misunderstanding of the hillbillies plays through the whole movie, as the kids try to rescue the girl  from what they think is “Evil” (Tucker & Dale) but in doing so they wind up killing themselves in awesome ways. Tucker & Dale don’t understand why the kids are dying either or why the kids keep trying to hurt them. That one misconception about Tucker & Dale plays throughout the entire film, this movie hinges on one joke and it does it well. You would think that it would get stale after a while, but actually no. Thanks to good comedic performances and great kills, this movie succeeds.

Ok, now this is not what it looks like!

In this picture about, the boys just finished pulling out the body from wood chipper and a cop is there. How do you explain this?

Tucker: Oh hidy ho officer, we’ve had a doozy of a day. There we were minding our own business, just doing chores around the house, when kids started killing themselves all over my property.

The story is built about one misconception and it even weighs in on the love story in the movie  that is unfolding…

Dale: You thought I looked like some kind of freak?
The Hot Girl That Gets Rescued: We misjudged you Dale. I’m… I’m really sorry.
Dale: Don’t be sorry, it’s my fault. I should have known if a guy like me talked to a girl like you, somebody would end up dead.

As you can probably tell, I love this movie.

It was perfect and extremely different. It was funny and stupid and hilarious but it was terribly entertaining too. The story line? You totally buy it!!

It had horror, gore, and laughs galore. And the lovable guy still gets the girl.

So, never judge a man by his overalls. He might just kick your ass in Trivia!

All The Ladies In The Back Say Hey!!

Quick thought: I was thinking this on the way to work. The only way I would not make it to work if I was on my way to work is if I got arrested or got in a car accident.  If any one of those happened, I would definitely try to call in. Maybe they would send me flowers in prison?

Over the weekend, I was hanging with my sister-in-law and she was mentioning the relationship her sister and her sister’s boyfriend have. Her sister has been out there in the dating scene and for the most part was getting tired of it. She finally met someone, a co-worker of my sister-in-law.

They have been together for some time, several months now. However, the guy is …. stupid.

Not like mentally…. more like he lacks the skills that would eventually lead him to an ass beating if he said the wrong thing.

He “jokes” around with the sister and often times goes a little overboard with the so-called “jokes”. The question is how far can he go claiming that he was only joking, a little friendly jabbing?

He “jokingly” makes remarks that would seem like he is insulting her. He always says things that actually belittle her and cut her down. For instance, she went to play golf with him and some people. On their way home, he said that he was surprise how well she did because she just is not athletic at all. Not like his ex girl-friend who  was so athletic!

Well, they just recently found out she is pregnant. He was excited. They both were. However, he is like always “joking” and said to her that she is so boring now because she is always so tired. She is getting fat. (Gasp!!) He might need to trade her in.

He says he is joking.

Repeatedly??

I don’t think so.

I think in cases like this where the guy is a complete dumb ass…. these type of men should be forced to wear a box with a glass case holding a bat. That way when they are out of line, all the girl has to do is break the glass and beat the ever-living crap outta him!

In fact, all men should wear these. If your glass is never broken, guess what? You win!! You are a keeper!!

This is not a man bashing blog.

I am married to a great guy, I can’t complain.

I have a son that is my world. I am currently teaching him not to drive me crazy!

And actually, guys are cool. I normally get a long way better with guys anyway.

No, this blog today is for the douches!

Douchebags make up  60% of men in the world.  My statistics. I have an elite bunch of researchers for your information.  I feel sorry for you because the average woman will run into these the majority of the time.

I hope once these ladies realize that they have, they break the figurative glass case and beat the fuck outta that relationship.

And because of this big percentage of losers, my theory is even more proven that God most definitely is a guy. And based on my findings, he is a douche.

Number one clue?

Are you on your period right now?

That just sums it all up doesn’t it!! Couldn’t God with his all heavenly and masterful design make some “other” way start the process of being able to have babies?? Why do we have to bleed like a stuck pig?? All guys have to go through is voice change.

That’s it!!

How unfair!!

And what about those cramps!?!? Do you know if men suffered from cramps which I call the introduction to contractions, cramps would be the number one health problem in the world?

And lets not even talk about the fatigue, the bloating, the headaches and emotional toll that we can expect every month?!?

Equality sure doesn’t exist in heaven! I bet the girl angels don’t even get paid as nearly as the guy angels too!

Clue Number 2?

Mental Anxiety.

I remember reading somewhere that forms of mental illness derived from women. Strange!!

Men have been pegging woman that they are crazy!

In fact, that is my no-no word. You can call me anything, but don’t call me crazy.

You want crazy? I will show you crazy!

Being called crazy all the time will sure turn you crazy. It will convince you that you are over reacting, that you are over analyzing stuff. You are just plain crazy!

It becomes a battle within your self!

Oooooo, fuck those kind of men!

And last but not least, Clue number 3.

Menopause.

Frankly, I ain’t there yet but from what I see with my mother. It’s basically like you are pregnant again. Hot flashes, mood swings, skin drying out, depression,  anxiety, irritability, memory problems and lack of concentration, and all other kinds of stuff.

It’s like a big fuckin kick in the pants reminding you that the youthfulness is gone!

And what do these all have common??

MEN!!

You think with all we have to go through there, these 60% of douches would get the hint that women should be treated with respect, love, and devotion.

I know not all women are peaches too but for the most part… if there is a woman by your side and she has been there through thick and thin… you should be placing her on a pedal stool!!

Worship her!!

Now to the above real life experience where the guy called my sister-in-law’s sister fat… well…. I think I am going to go buy a bat today.

Revisiting the Smart Car…. That Still Sucks.

Over the weekend I ran to the store and as I was walking in I saw parked up front a smart car.

Awwwwwww am I right??

However, I got angry! My Tahoe could have used that space!!! Notice how the smart car is this tiny thing in this space!!! You could fit five Smart cars in there!!! Why don’t we do that for now on?!?! Lets just cram five of them in one space.  I like that idea!!

Yeah let’s do it!!

I don’t know if you remember but I wrote a blog many moons ago about the Smart Car and basically how they sucked. At the time, I was just being stupid and sarcastic. However a lot of people gave me grief about my blog in turn making me actually hate the Smart Car and their “supposed” purpose.

My theory is its a conspiracy by the government for control on the growing population. Convince the masses that it’s a cool unique smart car, have them by it, then BOOM! a 18 wheeler comes crashing into you leaving nothing but broken glass everywhere.

Touche government, touche.

Feel free to read up ….. What\’s the Deal-Smart Car

I love the Smart Car’s slogan. It’s so uncar or open your mind to the car that challenges the status quo.

Here is the so-called benefit to the Smart Car: Over 96 million Americans drive to work alone each day. That means there are about 288,675,000 empty seats commuting to and from work. Astonishing. That’s why we got rid of the backseat entirely.

I am sorry but that is stupid. If that is the case… then the whole of this car is for lonely fucks!! Fucks that don’t have kids or a lover!!! If  a guy got rolled up in a Smart Car…. jaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,  I can just imagine what the “real package” looks like.

I’ll be like…  I didn’t order a smart car! I ordered a bull dozer baby!!

People who drive these cars probably sing… Eric Carmen’s All By Myself!!

Yeah yeah I said!

Also, what the fuck is this!?!

“Look son, this is what you will inherit.”

“Gee Dad doesn’t look much bigger then the car I drive now.”

“I know what it looks like but it will save you a lot of gas and it will keep you very unlaid.”

“Awww really dad!! That’s what I always wanted…. a non pimp-mobile! I wanna stay a virgin forever. “

“Well here it is. I just gotta make sure no one sneezes on it til you turn 16!”

Damnit!!

Well at least, you got the extended warranty.

Why is it called Smart Car anyways?

Is it just because it saves on gas? Is it because you not only bought a car but also a coffin and burial plot in one??

I am sorry but that ain’t very smart.

You know what is smart though??

A car that would prevent you from crashing. Yeah, that would be smart!

You know what would be smart… if there was a radar that would alert you when you got to close to another car. That would be smart!!

And lets say you ignored the alert, then a brake assist system would kick in and apply the brakes, bringing the car to a stop, if needed. Yes! That would be fucking intelligent!!

Too bad we don’t have this technology!

Wait!!!

We do!!

Mercedes has it! And yes Mercedes is actually a real life car!!!

Now shouldn’t that be called a Smart Car?

Just because Justin Bieber now wears glasses doesn’t make him smart…. so we wouldn’t call him that  unless he was actually fucking smart, right??

I get the angle of the Smart Car but it doesn’t make sense!! I say this as I hit my head with my fists!

All these yuppie loving Smart Car drivers need to find an island and not shower together!!

(dropped the mic and walked away George Jefferson style)

Just a Reminder that Work is for Shenanigans

If you are like me…. you are working hard for your money working in some form or another … am I right?

So some of us come here to rest…

Don’t judge.

If you are like me… you wanna make the best out of the situation.

I wish I could show you proof of the pranks I have pulled. I am an idiot and I never took pictures…

FUCK!

Recently, we set up a realistic mouse and spider and scared the shit out of anyone coming to our side of the building.  There is also a guy that hoards his root beer. You can offer him money, and he still won’t share. So I decorated all root beer can in Budweiser labels. I was able to drink them for two weeks before he realized that they were actually his root beer.

There is this annoying Red Sox fan who has his entire cube decorated in Red Sox stuff took a month to realize that we tampered with his stuff. Like putting mustaches on his posters and a dead cockroach in his mini model of the Pen Way park.

The root beer guy gets a lot of shit from me…. he has special place in my heart I guess.  His window was smashed in by some high winds…. over a seven months ago!

And he has yet to fix it!!

So I decorated it for him.

Hey …. there is some down time.

And I am glad I am not the only one who is in the mood for shenanigans.

What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie?

Obviously I have been doing nothing but watching scary movies, well you know,  besides eating.

Of course this isn't me. I swallow hot dogs whole.

 

I asked a bunch of people what their favorite scary movies are.

My husband said Brokeback Mountain and the ending of Boogie Nights.

Not only have I been watching scary movies but I watched the many channels’ lists on the to scary movies. So I have until today … no wait, til the end of the week to continue to scare the shit out of myself.

So I developed a list in case you were doing the same. You know… brain washing yourself.

11. Fallen

Det. John Hobbes is convinced that when killer Edgar Reese is executed, all of his troubles are over. But when people he knows and people on the street start to sing the same tune that Reese sang in the gas chamber, and those same people taunt him, he is told that maybe the cursed fallen angel Azazel is behind it all.

This demon/angel can pass from person to person. So this cat and mouse games  drives you crazy through the whole movie.

This movie is eerie. It’s more of a suspense thriller but it keeps you captivated and enthralled the entire movie. The Rolling Stones song that is featured in the movie, “Time is on my side” still freaks me out.

10. Seven

Se7en follows the story of two homicide detectives tracking down a sadistic serial killer who chooses his victims according to the seven deadly sins. This thriller portrays the exploits of a deranged serial-killer. His twisted agenda involves choosing seven victims who represent egregious examples of transgressions of each of the Seven Deadly Sins. He then views himself as akin to the Sword of God, handing out horrific punishment to these sinners.

Fucking creepy!! The whole movie is just dark and edgy! Your heart is constantly beating in this movie. Kevin Spacey who plays the killer freaks me out in this movie. He is nuts!!!

9.Poltergeist

A young family are visited by ghosts in their home. At first the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone, then they turn nasty and start to terrorise the family before they “kidnap” the youngest daughter.

Anything that involves children is scary. Anything that involves this little girl is freaky!! I barely saw this movie recently and I was amazed that this 80’s movie was so good! I loved it!!

And was creeped out by it as well.  In fact, I will never look at closets the same way.

8. The Orphanage

Laura, a former orphan, raises her adopted son Simón together with her husband Carlos in an old house and former orphanage where she was raised. While at the orphanage Simón tells Laura that he has five invisible friends which she believes are a product of his active imagination. Laura decides to reopen the orphanage to cater for disabled children and throws a party. During the party Simón tries to persuade Laura to go and take a look at his friends cabin but she’s too busy. Later on she sees a mysterious masked boy and realizes that Simón has also disappeared.

This masked boy is the most scariest thing ever!! This movie is totally trippy but actually had a god ending.

Bottom line: Children are scary.

7. Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse move into an apartment in a building with a bad reputation. They discover that their neighbours are a very friendly elderly couple named Roman and Minnie Castevet, and Guy begins to spend a lot of time with them. Strange things start to happen: a woman Rosemary meets in the washroom dies a mysterious death, Rosemary has strange dreams and hears strange noises and Guy becomes remote and distant. Then Rosemary falls pregnant and begins to suspect that her neighbours have special plans for her child.

This movie, for being old, is pretty good. I spent a lot of the time being angry because no one was helping the mother!!

In the end, you are pretty creeped out.

Never fucking trust the neighbors. Especially if they are old.

6. The Haunting in Connecticut

The Campbell family moves to upstate Connecticut, they soon learn that their charming Victorian home has a disturbing history: not only was the house a transformed funeral parlor where inconceivable acts occurred, but the owner’s clairvoyant son Jonah served as a demonic messenger, providing a gateway for spiritual entities to crossover. Now terror awaits when Jonah, the boy who communicated with the dead, returns to unleash horror on the innocent and unsuspecting family.

I seriously had to stop this movie a few times.  I was freaked out. To think that it might based on a true story. Geez people don’t move into old houses.

5.  The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1974

A group of five hippies on a road trip through the backwaters of 1970’s rural Texas fall prey to a murderous cannibalistic family making up of a leather-masked chainsaw-wielding maniac, his knife-wielding grave robber brother, and their cannibal chief father and decaying grandfather.

Slasher movies don’t really scare me as you will tell from my list because other than this one there will not be any listed, but this version gives me chills. The Chainsaw Massacre is beyond creepy. Its disturbing. All the characters in the movie are deeply mental. It also sends a very clear message.

Never pick up a hitchhiker! Seriously… you may never know if they belong to an inbred family or not!!! Or if they have a brother who likes to chain saw the crap out of people.

4. The Shining

A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.

I love this movie. Its brilliant!  Jack never ceases to stop scaring, Wendy is scary just looking at her, and their little boy is freakin weird!!!

I freak out when my girls say Red Rum.

Do!! Stay in huge hotels in the middle of nowhere!!!

3.  Insidious

A gripping story of a family in search of help for their son, Dalton, who fell into a mysterious coma on one ordinary morning. Little do they know that there is much more to this endless sleep than meets the eye as they explore the paranormal, and rediscover the past; the key to getting their son back once and for all.

Yes this movie is fairly new. However, when I saw this movie, I could not sleep for like a week straight! Seriously. I had every light on the house. I never entered a dark room. The demon in this movie is beyond the scariest I have ever seen. I don’t even wanna think of him. All I see it red!!!

Oh my god…. everything is scary in this movie! Everything. It’s by far one of the greatest super natural horror movies in a while.

I don’t wanna talk about it. After all, its Halloween.

2. The Grudge

An American nurse living and working in Tokyo is exposed to a mysterious supernatural curse, one that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming their life and spreading to another victim.

Let me tell you this movie scarred me for life. I will never see this movie again. Why? So I can imagine little Asian people in the corners of the roof! Fuck no!! Asian people are scary!! Enough said. Especially if they can distort their faces and head!!

Again, I will never see this movie again! Never!!

1. The movie that freaked me out the most…. The Ring

A mysterious video tape is killing off anyone who watches it. Whenever the victim watches it, the phone rings, telling them they have only one week to live. A young reporter named Rachel is investigating these events, but after she and her small son watch the tape, it becomes a race against time to find out why the tape is killing everyone and how it could be stopped.

First off, the girl in the story? Whoa whoa whoa! Who is fucked up enough to come up with this!?!??!  It’s not just the supernatural forces but also  the mystery.  Everyone’s scariest scene is a movie is when the girl is walking down the stairs from the Exorcist. Mine is when the girl coming out of the tv on all fours… and water is everywhere.

OMG…. I am need a hug.

So this was my list.

Give me a few of your scary movies!!!
