Dead Alive (1992)
Day 1: A memorable animal in a horror movie



A more cultivated person would probably go for the great white shark from Jaws or the birds from The Birds. But all I could think about was the rat monkey from Brain Dead. That thing is fucking hilarious.

Gremlins (1984)
Day 2: One of your earliest encounters with the horror genre



I saw Gremlins for the first time on a Christmas break when I was about 6 or 7. It totally made my holidays.

I fell like Captain Obvious here, but the final scene from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is absolutely epic.

George A. Romero hasn't really brought his A game in the recent years, but the guy is still a genius. With a pair of killa' frames.

I still haven't forgiven my friends for dragging me into this watered down PG-13 JJ Abrams piece of garbage. It pains me to even call this crapfest a "horror movie".

Slither (2006)
Day 10: An instant classic



A wonderful modernized and intentionally cheesy homage to the classic 1980's horror comedies. Great practical gore effects, hilariously over the top dialogue and a main character called Grant Grant. What's not to love?

Xtro is a dirty, cheesy, obscure horror exploitation film. But it's all kinds of awesome at that. It's a shame I seem to be the only person on this planet who thinks so.

Day 29: A movie you refuse to watch



The first one was okay, the second one was kind of bad and after the terrible third installment I totally gave up. It was like watching The Bold and The Beautiful with random torture scenes. I think I'd rather hang around in one of Jigsaw's elaborate traps than sit through the rest of these movies.

Day 30: One you need to watch, a.s.a.p.



I know everyone keeps bashing this, but I really enjoyed Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury's previous film Inside. And at least it seems to be visually very beautiful.

Nice taste! I may do one of these too.

Your taste in horror is impeccable!! I agree with lots of these- especially the two twist-ending categories. Can't wait for Livid either. I'll probably take a crack at doing one of these lists, but might be tough not to included some of the same answers as you. Great job!
