Today, I want to share something with you – a list of 34 horror movies I’ve loved since I was born in 1972. There would have been a LOT more in this list, but the rules of the meme (and the reason to share this list with you) requires I give no more than 25, so I’m already WAY over the limit.
The brainchild of this meme is Bish Denham, who did so to celebrate eight years of blogging.
Here rules were:
All you have to do is sign up in the linky thingy below, grab the banner, and make a list. I suggest you keep your list to between 5 and 25 items long. We’ll visit each other on October 26th.
You can list whatever you feel like (except for adult type content). That’s it! Of course, if you’d like to help spread the word, I’m not going to fuss at you.
And, if this bloghop does well, it will become an annual October event!
So, without further ado, here’s my list:
NOTE: I tried to shrink it to 25, but this is as small as I could make it – don’t hate me!
