Top Ten Horror/Science Fiction Movie Quotes Blogfest Part 1 - Horror

Welcome to part 1 of my entry in the Horror/Science Fiction Movie Quotes Blogfest brought to you by Ellie Garratt and iZombie!

Before I let you read my selection of quotes I should explain a bit. I was originally going to have one list of ten quotes that would be a mixture of horror and sci-fi films.

But the list grew and grew until I have ended up with ten of each genre so I now have two lists, which I decided to put in two separate posts. 

Now for those of you who have visited my blog before you will know that I like things to be random. So a couple of these quotes are classic quotes and the rest are memorable but...random.

So in some cases if you have seen the film in question you will probably know what was going off when the quote was said in that particular film. But some of you may feel like a late comer at a Ross Noble gig - very confused.

There are also the odd quote where the film could be classed as both horror and sci fi but I have put them in to the genre list that I think they are most like.

So here is list number one - horror...

10. Here's Johnny!

Jack Torrance - The Shining (1980)

9. Kate: Are you okay?
    Seth: Peachy, Kate. The world's my oyster, except for the fact that I just rammed a wooden stake in  my brother's heart because he turned into a vampire, even though I don't believe in vampires. Aside from that unfortunate business, everything's hunky-dory. 

From Dusk Til Dawn (1996)

8. Children: One, two, Freddy's coming for you. 
                  Three, four, better lock your door. 
                  Five, six, grab your crucifix. 
                  Seven, eight, gonna stay up late. 
                  Nine, ten, never sleep again. 

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

7. Welcome to my world, b***h!  *decapitates Freddy with Jason's machete*

Lori Campbell - Freddy Vs Jason (2003)

6. Sidney: Oh, my God. Randy I thought you were dead.
    Randy: I probably should be. I never thought I'd be so happy to be a virgin.

Scream (1996)

5. What's the matter David? Never taken a shortcut before? *tries to vault fence but it collapses under him*

Shaun - Shaun of the Dead (2004)

4. Stu: Did you really call the police?
    Sidney: You bet your sorry a** I did.
    Stu: My mom and dad are gonna be so mad at me!

Sceam (1996)

3. Hannibal: We call ourselves the Nightstalkers.
    Blade: Hmm. Sounds like rejects from a Saturday morning cartoon.
    Hannibal: Well, we were gonna go with the Care Bears, but uh, that was taken.

Blade Trinity (2004)

2. Okay. But dogs CAN look up!

Shaun - Shaun of the Dead (2004)

And now for my number one most memorable quote in the horror top ten. I chose this quote for a couple of reasons. is memorable. Two, it shows the characters desperation and mental stability. And even though you shouldn't is kind of funny in a way...or maybe that is just me. It is one of the quotes where if you haven't seen the film you will have no idea what is going all.

So without further ado [and before you head over to read part 2 - science fiction]...drum roll please...

1. What the hell are you doing out here, Fred? Fred, if you're real, you better tell me right now!
 Robert Neville - I Am Legend (2007)

I thought about using that one from Nightmare on elm street. great list.

Lisa Potts said...

Nice list. I forgot all about Shaun Of The Dead when I made mine!

Chippy, I love the way you did the two lists. Very cool. I read my teenager The Matrix quotes because he thinks those films are the greatest ever. I tried watching the first one once, but my kids were running around, making so much noise that I could hardly follow along. I promise to try again.
