Since Halloween is in just a few days I thought I would recount the movies that scared me the most when I was a kid.
I still have nightmares about this guy and they say this movie is a comedy.
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I don't remember being scared of this but my sister tells me that whenever the monkeys came on screen I would run away and not finish the movie.
Baabbyy Ruuuuth?!?! Why would they put this monster in a kids movie? I always screamed when they revealed his face for the first time in the movie.
After I saw this movie I wouldn't look under my bed for months. Not because I was scared that the troll would be there but I was scared that he would be in the bed with me after I was done looking.

Great Movie. I thought this was going to be a serious drama but it turned out to be a hilarious comedy. Clint spits out so many racial slurs you'll be throwing up from laughing so hard. It also helps that he's a bad ass who's pushing on 90. Go rent this movie right away!

This series really blew me away with how much it felt like I was watching a a really good TV show. This is not like your usual comic series because it is one continous story. The main plot revolves around a mysterious plague that suddenly kills all the men in the world except for Yorick Brown.
What ensues is Yorick's crazy journey around the world looking for his fiance and trying to find out why he is the last man on earth. All the while he has to avoid women trying to have sex with him and other women trying to kill him off.
If you're a fan of cool premises and you like reading comics that are really good then go out and buy all ten volumes now.

Dexter is one of those shows that you just have to tell everyone you know to watch it. I think what makes it appeal to a lot of people is the fact that the main character is one of the bad guys. Dexter works for the Miami Police Department as a forensic blood splatter specialist and he is also serial killer.
The line between good and evil is often blurred because Dexter only kills bad guys who deserve it. This makes for a interesting show, one in which the audience is rooting for the killer.
Michael C Hall does an incredible job as Dexter and overshadows the whole supporting cast. Most of the other actors play typical "cop" roles but don't worry because they really get good in later seasons.
Definitely check this show out if like good television.

Jo Chen is an incredible artist who is most famous for doing the covers for Buffy Season 8. In my opinion, she is the reason why Buffy became a successful comic series. She has a unique talent of capturing what the actress really looks like. I wish I could say the same for the interior artist for Buffy. Most of the time I can't tell which character is which. Chen also did a long run on Runaways producing a lot of beautiful covers.
