Yes, in honor of Halloween, and to get to know my Eternian neighbors, I was curious what's your favorite monster/horror movies? For those that like those style movies, anyway.

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I am not a fan of modern slasher movies because I hate the whole gore shock factor in movies these days. They sacrifice a story for extra gore and violence. That's why I absolutely love the old black and white monster movies from Universal and RKO. Those, IMHO, are classics.

There is only a few "modern" monster/horror franchises that I like. They'll be in my top 10.


My Top 10:

10) Dracula
9) Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein
8) Predator and Predators (not Predator 2)
7) Terminator franchise (minus Terminator 3)
6) Halloween 1 and 2 (not the remakes)
5) Creature From the Black Lagoon
4) Aliens franchise
3) The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms
2) The Thing From Another World
1) King Kong - 1933

Another movie I always watch at this time of year but I don't know if I'd qualify it as a "Halloween" movie is "Nightmare Before Christmas".

So how's about you all?
