Autumn of Terror: Top 5 Screams

By Geeky Gem

As Autumn of Terror goes on I thought it best to make a clip blog of the best screams in horror movies. There is nothing better than having a giggle as people scream in movies at things that have scared them or are trying to kill tem. I don’t scare easy so this always makes me giggle, here are some of the ones I liked most.

Halloween – Jamie Lee Curtis

Where better to start than with the woman be call the scream queen. Jamie Lee has been in so many horror movies I think she had screaming down to a t. Here is the chase scene from Halloween, just for you to see what I mean.

Scream – Drew Barrymore

Scream was one of the first horror movies, that I bought on video. This was surely down to the fact that I thought it was really good and kind of funny as the movie was intended to be a spoof movie but became so much more. It was horror for a whole new generation, a generation that knew the rules for horror movies. Here is the clip that opened the movie and saw Drew Barrymore scream her guts up, literally.

Evil Dead – Bruce Campbell

I love Bruce Campbell, if you follow him on Twitter he is really funny and even answers fan’s questions when he can. I also love the Evil Dead, Sam Raimi just made this movie on a show string and its fantastic. This clip shows some of Bruce’s best screams.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre – Marilyn Burns

I had originally picked The Wicker Man to go here, but just before posting I changed my mind. This movie made my banned list eariler in the week, so I picked the dinner scene for you to enjoy. Marilyn Burns screams a lot in this scene, so its worth a watch.

Scream of Fear – Susan Strasberg

I couldn’t very well have a list of screams and not included one from the home of horror Hammer. It took me a while to find one I really liked but in the end I picked Scream of fear. The screams in this are fantastic, I have chosen to show you trailer here.

There we have it folks a whole lot of screaming going on, my thorat is sore after all that. Until next time take care.

My Geeky Trivia

By Geeky Gem

 When I was young and was new to the world of movies the only director I ever wanted to be and still kinda do today was a pioneer of his time and he still is. He still brings us fresh new movies and amazing character’s that stay with us forever. I am of course talking about Mr Steven Spielberg, so this week on Geeky trivia I thought I would bring you some bits of interesting trivia on the man that brought us a shark, an archaeologist, and some aliens, not in the same movie mind. That being said, Steven if you reading this there has to be something in sharks and aliens right?

 

 

Steven Spielberg received Germany’s Cross of Merit with Star for his sensible representation of Germany’s history in Schindler’s List.

In 1995 he was awarded the American Film Institute Life Achievement Award.

He claims Richard Dreyfuss is his alter-ego.

He attended California State University, Long Beach after being turned down by USC Cinema school twice.

Spielberg is Co-founder (with Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen) of DreamWorks SKG.

He has one of the original Rosebud sledge’s from Citizen Kane in his house.

Godfather of Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Sits on USC School of Cinema-Television’s Board of Councillors.

When he was a child, he sneaked onto the lot of Universal Studios during a tour and befriended an editor who showed him a few things about film making.

Favourite indoor relaxation pursuits are watching golf on TV and playing the computer game “Assassin’s Creed”.

There we have it, just a few bits of trivia about the man that inspired a generation of film-maker’s to pick up a camera and dream. The man who showed children that an Alien can be a friend and not scary. Thank you Mr Spielberg.
