poor poor poor Snape. So what’s your favorite scary movie?

Okay, so I don’t see the connection between Snape’s sad diary entries and scary movies either, but hey! Potter Pals are fun! Hmm… my favorite scary movie. One of my favorites recently has been:

Sunshine
Rated R for violent content and language.
It is the year 2057, the sun is dying and mankind faces extinction. Earth’s last hope rests with a courageous crew of eight men and women on a mission to ignite the fading star with a massive nuclear weapon. Deep into their voyage, out of radio contact with Earth, their mission begins to unravel and they find themselves fighting not only for their lives, but for the future of us all.
(I really really like the soundtrack)

Technically, this is a “science fiction” movie and not a horror, although there are some pretty gruesome things that happen in it. So I also like this movie:

I Sell the Dead
This is “not rated” but its definitely R rated, and not for the squeamish.
It was a time of ghouls and most ghastly of all, the fine art of grave-robbing. Arthur Blake is a 19th century corpse snatcher, who pilfered the cemeteries and coffins of England until his capture by police. But just before Blake is to meet the hangman’s noose, he will confess to a peculiar priest his gruesome tale of vampires, zombies, and cadaver-dealing that takes him from the savagery of the criminal underworld to the terrors of the undead.
