What's Your Favorite Scary Movie?

Posted on Thursday, October 26th, 2006. Last Updated on Friday, October 27th, 2006 4:03 PM by Scott Jentsch

If your answer is SAW or SAW II, then you're a happy camper this weekend, as SAW III is now in theaters! As soon as the original SAW made its money back in 2004, at least one sequel was a given. SAW II made even more money, so a third was a lock. The studios are throwing this pic on a huge number of screens this weekend to take advantage of the spooky holiday, so we may be seeing a SAW IV next year.

Personally, my favorite scary movie is a tie between ALIENS and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. They don't make them much better than this, so if you haven't seen them, do yourself a favor and rent or buy them soon! I wouldn't necessarily recommend them as a double-feature, but each is very good in its own right and well worth your time!

If scary comedy is more your style, the Marcus Cinema in Saukville, Wisc. is showing a double feature tonight of Brendan Fraser's THE MUMMY and THE MUMMY RETURNS. These were very enjoyable movies, and a surprise to many, so seeing them up on the big screen with a crowd that is ready to have some fun with it might be a good way to spend a little over 4 hours.

Another movie released today that is getting some last minute publicity is CATCH A FIRE with Tim Robbins and Derek Luke. Our Featured Movie Critic liked it, largely due to the performance of Derek Luke (ANTWONE FISHER, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS).

Additionally, we have RUNNING WITH SCISSORS with Annette Bening and the wider release of ALEX RIDER: OPERATION STORMBREAKER.

I had the chance to see THE DEPARTED this week, and there is no doubt that this movie left an impact. Martin Scorcese makes movies like few others, and the only problem I'm having is figuring out what to say in my reader review. It's gotten nothing but "See Now!" reviews from other BigScreen readers, and our Featured Movie Critic liked it a lot. If you haven't had a chance to see it, make some time. I think you'll be glad you did.
