Hide Under the Bed! Classic Horror Movies

There is something about a crisp fall night that makes me want to curl up with a spine-tingling, bone-chilling, hair-raising, blood-curdling movie (I make sure a person or huggable family pet is near by in case I get too scared)!

I am not sure how my love of horror began, but I highly suspect that my two older brothers had a lot to do with it. Being older (i.e. bigger), they often chose what we watched on tv: Sir Graves Ghastly, Planet of the Apes, Night Gallery , Godzilla, and of course classic movies like The Blob and Frankenstein.

One night the three of us were sitting on the couch, wrapped in blankets and sharing a huge bowl of popcorn. We stared wide-eyed, slowly munching as Bela Lugosi terrified London as Count Dracula. Just as the fiend transformed from bat to vampire, a live bat swooped into the living room. Our popcorn and blankets went flying and we screamed loud enough to wake the dead. Ahhh, those were good times.

I still love a good fright, and if you do too, check out a few of these classic horror movies …bats not included.

Is your favorite classic horror movie not listed here? Be sure to share it in the comments section! Happy Haunting!!! <insert Vincent Price evil laugh here>
