The 100 Greatest Horror Movie Quotes

I discovered this guy, Harry Hanrahan, through Pajiba, another movie blog-site that I look at fairly regularly. He makes these pretty great movie montages and what have you, and I thought this one would be a good way to start off this particular weekend. Or what I call: The Holidays. My holidays last from about Halloween to New Years Eve, much to my boss' chagrin. But what can she do? Discriminate against my beliefs? I think not.

Anyhow, you can check out his other ones, I once wrote about one he did featuring the 100 Greatest Quotes from The Wire (which he did a sequel to as well. (Which, incidentally, still didn't feature my favorite quote or one of my favorite quotes.

That being said, from Pajiba : "Ahead of Halloween, our illustrious video editor, Harry Hanrahan, is debuting another one of this 100 Quote video masterpieces here on Pajiba. It’s not for the faint of heart. For those hoping for some comic relief, you won’t find it here. There are no pithy one liners or Evil Dead II quips. These quotes are purely of the scary variety, and Harry scoured the best horror movies of all time to compile another extensive montage designed for the hardest of the hard-core horror movie movie fans.

Pull up a seat. Take your place on the edge of it, and soak in the terror."
