You are so correct, my loverly five readers! Add em on, girls:
The Nightmare Before Christmas. Very conservative Christians and baptists probably don't watch this one...evidently I am on the edge of the flock as usual. A good flick for Gianni to watch before bed, because Fern Gully is, in his words, 'too scary.'
The Ghost and Mr Chicken. Come on, who doesn't LOVE Don Knotts? If you can get past the whole murdered lady with scissors in her throat part (my girls can't) you'll find this a very fun movie indeed.
Beetlejuice. Love the waiting room.
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Nothin' brings back childhood like Charlie!
Murder, He Says. Sometimes (ok all the time) when my mom and little sis get together, a lot of movie quotes come out of our mouths. And no one gets the references really. So they just smile and nod. But if you watch this movie, you too will have tons of one liners and you can join in our witty banter! You know you want to! And pass the grits with the gravy, would ya?
The Others. When I wake up in the middle of the night cuz something went bump, this is the movie that starts playing in my head. I squeeze my eyes shut and try not to think of creepy children. It doesn't work, which is the sign of a really good scary movie.
The Blair Witch Project. Sure, you all who saw it the week AFTER it was released and knew all the hype, you can go ahead and scoff. Try going on opening night when you don't know what the heck you're seeing and see if you don't go home and sleep with a shotgun next to your bed.
The Changeling. Remember the ball bouncing down the stairs?
The Sixth Sense. I have a kindred spirit with Bruce Willis in this movie. I have entire days too when no listens to a word I say or acknowledges my existence and I wonder if I too, am dead and don't realize it. It would explain things.
