Richard Dawson & Zombie Chickens

A while back, I was "tagged" by some broad (who I know well so she won't mind me calling her 'some broad') with this horror movie survey. *sigh* I don't wanna tag specific people...anyone who wants this thing, take it! I'd be interested in reading your answers.

"Survey SAYS!"

1.) Favorite Black & White Horror Movie Character? - Bela Lugosi's Dracula. "I do not drink...wine." LOVE.

2.) Favorite Horror Author? - I, like Rich of The Stepsister & The Stepsister 2 fame, am a total Stephen King fan-slut.

3.) Freddy or Jason? - I would have to go with Jason on this one. At least he doesn't speak. Freddy would do well to shut his freaking trap every now and then.

4.) If you had to pick one which would it be?

A) Stay in a haunted house alone overnight.
B) Camping at Camp Crystal Lake
C) Swimming in the waters on Amity

Camping, definitely. What's that you say? A crazed machete-wielding psychopath is roaming these here woods? Well, I've always been a fast runner...

5.) Favorite Cheesy Horror Movie? - Scream 3, Freddy vs. Jason, Attack of the Giant Leeches. Particularly the last one. So. Cheesy. It. Hurts. It was made in the 50s with a painfully low budget--the "giant leeches" are people in leech suits which isn't obvious at all. And by "isn't obvious at all" I mean "you can totally tell they're people and not slimy mutants".

6.) RingU or The Ring? - I've never seen RingU and I absolutely loathe The Ring.

7.) Alien or Predator? - Since I was born on the mothership, it's only natural that I choose Alien.

8.) The more gore the better or a great storyline? - I NEED a good storyline! I hate movies that layer on the blood and guts in an effort to make up for the sad lack of a plot.

9.) New horror, old horror, or classic horror? - What's the difference between 'old' and 'classic'? In any case, they all have their merits.

10.) Sequels or Remakes? - Let's face it--sequels usually suck ass. I'd rather watch a remake.

11.) Zombies or Creatures? - R.L. Stine.

12.) Best way to watch a horror movie? - In the dark while wearing your bloody apron, hockey mask, and razor glove.

13.) Favorite Horror Icon? - Leatherface.

14.) Favorite remakes or sequels? - I'm completely coming up short here...*braindead*

15.) Movie that gave you chills or scared you? - The Descent makes me jump everytime I watch it. I've seen it approximately 56489 times, but those damned cave dwellers (Crawlers?) give me chills, man. When I was but a wee lass, The Ghost in the Darkness (not actually about a ghost but maneating lions) scared the living hell out of me. I was convinced that I would wake up one night with a giant lion prowling about my room, waiting to feast on my body like it was an all-you-can-eat buffet. Good times.
