Cooper’s Favorite Scary Movies
Since Halloween is only a couple weeks away, a lot of people are re-watching their favorite scary and horror movies. Here are my top 5 "scary" movies. Some of them aren't your typical horror movies, but they are still def worth checking out.
NUMBER 5 - On The Beach (2000)
Following an all out nuclear war, Armand Assante plays the captain of the last surviving United States Navy submarine. After months underwater, trying to find a place that has not been completely contaminated by radioactivity, they surface off the coast of Australia. While enjoying their first fresh air in months, they get the horrifying news that the radioactivity from the war in the north is working its way south and that everyone on Earth will be dead within a few months. Not a traditional horror movie anything dealing with the end of the world is pretty scary. I prefer this 2000 remake of the original 1959 film, but they are both great in their own ways.
NUMBER 4 - Pitch Black (1999)
Vin Diesel and Radha Mitchell star in this movie about a freighter that crashes on a desert planet. Stranded with no real supplies, it seems like they'll all die of thirst... Until the sun goes down and the black-thirsty "bat things" fly out of their caves and attack.
NUMBER 3 - 28 Days Later (2002)
Much like The Walking Dead, Cillian Murphy plays the part of a man who wakes up from a coma in deserted hospital. He wonders outside and into a zombie apocalypse. Well, not really zombies. Just people that have been infected with a highly contagious, fast form of rabies. The really creepy thing about the movie is how fast the "zombies" move. A zombie herd is bad enough, but it is ten times scarier when they are all sprinting like Usain Bolt.
NUMBER 2 - Night Of The Living Dead (1968)
Nothing beats George Remero's 1968 low budget classic! In some ways, the fact that it is black and white makes it that much more intense. They did a color remake in 1990. Nowhere near as good.
NUMBER 1 - Event Horizon (1997)
Starring Lawrence Fishburn and Sam Neil, it is about the Event Horizon, the first spacecraft capable of faster-than-light travel. It travels by "folding space". Basically, it opens a gateway to another dimension. In this case, HELL! My friend Kelly put it best when she said the movie was about a "haunted house in space". Definitely worth checking out.
