GBF Listeners Answer: What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie? – Exorcist and Halloween Top the List
Today our topic of discussion was, "What's your favorite scary movie?" There are a lot of good classics out there and the movie industry is churning out new ones all the time.
Interestingly enough, though, the classics still tend to be the scarier than newer movies - even with CGI and new makeup techniques. I think it's because older movies relied on the story, the acting and the mood to create a bone-chilling flick - things that many of the newer movies lack.
Do you agree or disagree? Here's some of our favorite listener comments below!
