Want to see something really scary? – Dothan Eagle

6. Jaws (1975) Sentimental, salt water journey for me. This is the first movie I saw with KM. Great film to get a girl to start out holding your hand and end up sitting in your laugh.

5. Psycho (1960) My eighth grade girlfriends mom told me once that she never took another shower after seeing Hitchcocks scariest work. I dont remember when I first saw it, probably wasn't at the premier when I was 3. It still holds up, in my opinion, as one of the scariest films ever made. Seeing mother through the shower curtain as she charged towards the showering Janet Leigh, is always a chilling thrill. And the black blood swirling around the white tubs drain has never looked so real.

4. The Silence of the Lambs (1991) The only horror best picture winner. Such a great film that it didnt take too long for me to forget about Jodie Fosters Appalachian drawl. Definitely deserves this top five ranking. And no serial killer, save perhaps Dexter, is as beloved as Hannibal the Cannibal.

3. The Shining (1980) This was the first Stephen King novel I read. I agree with many who have gone from hating Kubricks creation, to loving it. REDRUM, Heeeeres Johnny and Shelly Duvall running scared with her butcher knife through the Overlook Hotel are imbedded in the horror archives of my mind forever. And those creepy little twins always go a long way.
