Thinking about all the movies we watched together as kids has me excitedly looking through my dvds getting ready for the weekend. While Peter loved campy slasher films as much as Hitchcock films (who could forget The Birds), the primal killer and supernatural lured him too. While he could enjoy black and white films, there was nothing like watching blood and gore with him doing sound effects and setting up visuals to freak out his mother and sisters.
Do You See The Resemblance?
To cap off the week of ghoulish movies to kick off Fright Month, here are a few more of Pete's favorites:
* Jaws ( I know you don't consider this to be a horror film, but Peter liked it) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz4nFYMYTY4
* Carrie ( nothing like blood in a bucket) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-nvpjS0-y4
* American Werewolf in London (Peter loved the special effects ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFLQS12z8K4
Side Note: I've seen Peter recreate the American Werewolf scene (minus the ripping off clothes). He would be in the middle of a normal activity and then he'd throw himself on the floor and recreating the wolf growls and the blood curdling screams. God ... I miss those days when you could be a child and do that in public !
