Alex J. Cavanaugh. Some really cool guys, iZombieLover and Ellie Garratt came up with the topic. The top ten horror/sci-fi movie quotes.
In all honesty, I haven't thought about this much since I signed up for it a while back, and now I'm a bit worried that I'll come up with enough. Let's see how it goes:
(In no particular order. And I know, my definition of the genres are a little looser than others.)
Shaun of the Dead
Liz: It's just with Ed here, it's no wonder I always bring my flat-mates out and then that only exacerbates things.
Shaun: What do you mean?
Liz: Well you guys hardly get on, do you?
Shaun: No, what does "exacerbate" mean?
Liz: It means um, to make things worse.
Great zombie rom-com. The first, the best, and an instant classic.
Let the Right One In
Oskar: How old are you?
Eli: Twelve... more or less.
A haunting movie, up for lots of slightly different interpretations. As much about society's outcasts as it is a vampire movie. For a really intense ride, try out the book (which has one of the scariest scenes I've ever read).
A Tale of Two Sisters
Eun-ju: Do know what's really scary? You want to forget something. Totally wipe it off your mind. But you never can. It can't go away, you see. And... and it follows you around like a ghost.
A beautiful and complicated film that does well under repeated viewing. Stick with the movie through the deliberately slow pacing, and feel the hairs on your arms stand up as the tension mounts.
Norman Bates: It's not like my mother is a maniac or a raving thing. She just goes a little mad sometimes. We all go a little mad sometimes.
By now, most people know the twist of this film even if they haven't seen it. But it's still worth watching for the absolutely amazing job by Anthony Perkins. It's no wonder he got type cast after this movie, the above line still gives me chills.
Asami Yamazaki: Kiri kiri kiri kiri kiri kiri!
This quote will mean nothing to you if you haven't watched this movie. If you have, you're probably shivering now. Another complex and confusing Asian horror that will haunt you for years to come.
Jayne Cobb: She is startin' to damage my calm.
Unless your big fans of the series, this movie is just so-so. But, it was great to see the story come to a conclusion (of sorts) and to see the characters' send off.
PS-Jayne's my favorite.
Grady daughters: Come play with us, Danny.
The movie that single-handedly made me terrified of small British children. A great horror classic, even if King hated it and it really has nothing to do with the novel.
Jack Starks: I was 27 years old the first time I died.
A movie that didn't do well in the theaters and hasn't really gotten the notice it deserves. A great time-travel, medical experimentation movie that manages to keep you intrigued and interested in the characters. The first film I saw Adrien Brody in, and in my mind, still one of his best.
Being John Malkovich
John Malkovich: This portal is mine and must be sealed up forever. For the love of God.
Craig Schwartz: With all respect, sir, I discovered that portal. Its my livelihood.
John Malkovich: It's my head, Schwartz, and I'll see you in court!
Craig Schwartz: And who's to say I won't be seeing what you're seeing... in court?
A bizarre, but brilliant film that will make you love/appreciate John Malkovich even more.
What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
Blanche: You wouldn't be able to do these awful things to me if I weren't still in this chair.
Jane: But you are, Blanche! You are in that chair!
A great dark comedy thriller that stars two Hollywood classics at the end of their career. Not one to miss, but be sure you can embrace the camp.
