I've already preordered my tickets to see "IT" tomorrow night, which really got me thinking about just how unprepared I am to see another scary movie. It's been a while since I've sat down and watched a good scary movie, but "IT" already has incredible reviews - including a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes - so I figured I had to see it. Plus, the boyfriend said the movie used to terrify him as a kid...and I'm always down to watch him cringe.

But wait - does this mean the creepy clowns walking down the streets will reappear? I certainly hope not, though it did entertain me for a moment. I saw where people had been going around cities and tying red balloons to drain gates recently, so that's fun.

Now, back to my point. I've been a scary movie buff for many years. Fall is my favorite season simply because it's dark and spooky. I live for the time of the year when Halloween and scary movies are everywhere. But, like I said, I can't even remember the last scary movie I saw, let alone a good one. Lately, the horror movie quality has kind of dropped off, so maybe we need "IT" to bring it back.

I have a short list of my favorite scary movies of all time that I'd like to share with you. In case you haven't noticed yet, I like to make lists. I think that has a little to do with my ADHD, but whatever.

This is in all capitals for a reason. Although it's more of a "thriller", it still freaked me the F out! When the girl says, "because you were home" when they ask why they're being tortured, my soul left my body. Moving on.

2. Silence of the Lambs.
Now, although this didn't freak me out like the previous movie did, this film is still creepy. With that being said, it is my FAVORITE movie of ALL TIME. I'm not sure what that says about me, but I'm just letting you know.

3. The Conjuring.
This one was also spooky. That little devil/nun lady is creepy AF. I can't deal with it. Every time she randomly pops up on screen, I pee a little.

4. Sinster.
Now, I've heard the sequel is awful, but the first one made it hard for me to fall asleep for a while. I've never been particularly scared of ghosts or creatures, but spirits and haunting freak me out. This was just flat-out spooky.

5. Insidious.
How about no? Like children are weird enough, let's not make them demonic too. I've seen the sequels to this movie as well and they're all pretty terrifying, but the first more than others.

That's it! To my understanding, "IT" is about a demon clown that only children can see. It lures them in and feeds on their soul...so, you know, nothing major. I think a pretty great era of new scary movies is coming. I've learned "Jeepers Creepers 3" is on the way, which deserves a spot on this list as well. Also, "Jigsaw", which is a spin-off all the "Saw" movies, so you know that'll give you a stomach ache. So, we're heading back in the right direction as far as scary movies go. Of course, I'll check in come Monday, if I live to see it, and tell you guys how many times I screamed during "IT". Stay tuned.
