  1. You don’t usually see lists of best horror films this time of year, but I guess any time is good for this type of film! I haven’t seen Blair Witch Project in a long time- I want to watch it again now that I see it on your list.

  2. I will forward this to the hubby as he is a fan of horror movies. I, on the other hand, am not and get scared pretty easily. I did have the nerve at one point in time to watch The Blair Witch Project. I can’t say that I enjoyed it but I lived to tell the tale to say that I saw it! LOL

  3. I am not a horror movie person at all, so I haven’t heard of most of these or seen any of them. The only one I know of, though, is Blair Witch Project but mostly because it was filmed by students at the college I went to, the University of Central Florida, a few years before I went there.
