COFFIN HOP GIVEAWAY (OVER)

Hello Coffin Hoppers! And Happy Halloween (well, very soon, anyways)! Welcome to my corner of the hop. Below is my giveaway - easy to enter, breezy to win! And below that, a compiling of my favorite lines from horror and science fiction movies, in no particular order. You'll find some movies repeated. Brilliant lines just ooze from some films, don't they? 

At the bottom of the post are the Coffin Hop's "Gory Details" and a link to hop back to the main list of participating blogs. So grab a cup of hot cocoa in your favorite skull mug, lock the windows, check your closets (make sure to get way back, where the darkness bunches), and have a seat - the horror is about to begin.

Oh, and here is a pic of the giveaway's grand prize - a custom-made vampire stake! It's 12 7/8" in length, pine, hand-turned and hand-stained. And watch out - that point is sharp!

  1. We appear to have very similar tastes in movies. Thanks for the reminders. I might add:
    "I'm your boyfriend now!" (Freddy to Nancy, original "Nightmare on Elm St." or "Whatever it is, it's weird and pissed off!" (Clark to rest of station, "The Thing" 1982 version.) or basically every one of Hudson's lines in "Aliens."

  9. I know it's cliche for the hipsters to say (+1 for unintentional rhyming skills?) but I gotta go with the 1982 version of THE THING. Every time.

    Great post and amazing contest, Beck. Very glad to have you with us. Happy Hopping!

  18. The Shining. and Cujo was really bad.

  19. Love the list. I've never seen Tremors. I might have to now. That's a hell of a line. Haven't seen They Live in forever, but I remember that one. Psycho is great. I practically grew up with The Fog. And you could have grabbed 50 quotes from The Exorcist alone.
    Great to meet you. New follower.
    Happy Hopping.

  21. Hmm, favorite scary movie? The Shining, probably. But as for Halloween movies, yesterday I couldn't help myself and had a mini-marathon of Nightmare Before Christmas and Trick 'r Treat, two of my favorites to put me in the spirit of the season!

  24. Actual scary movie would be either The Exorcist or The Shining. But hilarious scary movie (and ones I watch every Halloween) would be the Evil Dead/Army of Darkness movies. Gotta love the boomstick! =)

  25. Cliche as they may be, I am in love with the SAW franchise. Though 5 and 7 were horribly weak, the series still holds a special place in my heart.
