Day 1 : A memorable animal in a horror movie

It's more surrealist than horror, but the Cronenberg typewriter-insects in Naked Lunch are marked in my memory.

Day 2: One of your earliest encounters with the horror genre

I didn't watch a lot of horror films when I was young (in fact, I was frightened just to be in the horror section in videoclubs) but I remember I watched this one with friends. It may be my first intrusion in the genre.

Day 3: A favorite saw or chainsaw scene

The hand scene in Evil Dead II. And each use of the chainsaw in Evil Dead.

Day 4 - A great horror movie doctor

Dr. Génessier in Les yeux sans visage, this man who wants to create a new face for his love, strongly disfigured by fire. Even if he has to kill someone to do so.

Day 5 - Favorite horror director

David Cronenberg. I love his esthetic, his psychanalytic approach of the horror and his particularly dark use of gore (and grotesque) images.

Day 6 - Your favorite movie by your favorite director

Because I'm a big big fan of Lynch and Eraserhead is one of the strangest things I have seen.

Day 8 - Best comedy-horror

This stange mixture of musical comedy, classic low-budget horror film and sci-fi movie is my ultimate feel-good movie.

Bergman does horror. A must-see. The images are magnificent and somehow terryfing.

Day 11 - Most psychotic killer

This man is crazy. It gave me shivers. This cold-blooded attitude, his obsession with his face, his look, his smile... I'm still shocked.

Day 12 - The goriest film you've seen

Animals getting sacrified, decapitated, dismembered... And after this, people getting sacrified, mutilated, decapitated, dismembered. Documentary-style. Rough.

Day 13 - Favorite foreign horror

I really loved this movie. Thérèse Raquin adapted in a korean vampire way. Strangely hypnotic, and beautiful images.

At first you think, well, it could have been a good idea. And then you hear the songs.

David Bowie, Susan Sarandon, Catherine Deneuve and zombies. Do I have to say more?

Day 16 - Great indie horror

A classic surrealistic horror movie, so unknown. Reminds me the Bergman esthetic. A kind of Alice in Wonderland, but with vampires.

Day 18 - A movie people hate that you love

At first I hated too. It moved me in a strange and bad feeling I wasn't able to understand. During the projection I became agressive and hateful. Then I realized it may be what Von Trier tried to do. Plus the images are magnificent.

But I won't be watching this again.

Day 19 - A movie that disappointed you

I really loved Martyrs, by the same director, and was expecting to see something in the same vein. That was not the case. I found it boring, long and vague.

Day 20 - A great twist ending

I didn't see it coming. I was stunned. And then I rewatched it and was amazed to see how everything worked. I still watch it at least once a year.

Day 22 - Best movie based on a book

Even if the adaptation is not faithful, I think this is one of my favorite "based on book" horror, precisely because Kubrick recaptured King's original novel and made it its own.

I was not sure at the beginning, even if the girl at the video store told me that "this [was] something". I began to find it long, then the second part began and I stayed hooked to my place.

Day 25 - A franchise you don't like

I spend my time repeating I'm gonna watch this one day, but in fact I'm not sure I want to. Even though I watched a lot of trash and gore movies (and liked them, for the most part), this franchise doesn't really attract me.

This isn't really a horror movie, but we recognize the Stephen King's touch, his humanity in his approach of the characters. Really touching.

Zombies and eroticism in the same movie. Yes, it's possible. And strangely philosophical.
