Scariest: "The Serpent And The Rainbow". Honorable Mention: "Dead Silence"
For fun Halloween-type flicks I'm partial to:
- "13 Ghosts" (1960) - why, the original, of course!
- "You'll Find Out" (1940) - only time Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, and Peter Lorre appeared together
- "The Ghost Breakers" (1940) - Bob Hope, sans Bing
- "Scared Stiff" (1953) - a remake of The Ghost Breakers, but Martin and Lewis make it fun
- "Murder In The Blue Room" (1944) - a fun re-make of "Secret Of The Blue Room (1933)
- House On Haunted Hill (1959) - Vincent Price, Elisha Cook, and walking skeletons? Yess!
Bonus - "The Screaming Skull" (1958) - a schoolmate of mine told me about this back in third grade, and a scene where a skull actually rolls on the ground and chases a woman. I remember thinking I'd probably pee myself in fright if I actually saw that. Finally did see it on TCM a few years back.. Talk about cheesy - but the scene where the skull "chases" was just like my buddy said. Glad I waited a while to see it, lol.
