Giveaway: Redbox Has Your Horror Movie Fix!

Do you find yourself watching more horror movies leading up to Halloween? It's a year 'round thing in our home, with zombie movies being the hands down favorite. I like disaster movies, he likes horror movies - we meet in the middle with zombies. ;) Course, I prefer my horror movies to have a reason - violence for the sake of violence just doesn't do it for me. I want to know WHY someone is killing - or something is going on. It has to be a valid reason, too - and yes, I drive my DH INSANE with that. lol


Redbox has some great horror movies you can rent for just $1.00 a night plus tax. They emailed me some interesting information and facts I couldn't resist sharing with you:

Since 2004, redbox has provided more than 237 million hours of screams and jitters. (That's a lot of horror movies!)

Movie fans love to get spooked leading up to Halloween - Over 60 percent of respondents from a recent redbox survey watch a horror movie during the month of October to get in the Halloween spirit.* (I'm not surprised!)

Who’s afraid of the Dark? - Over 75 percent of respondents prefer to watch a horror movie with the lights off, with over 90 percent saying it makes the movies scarier.* (Definitely! I won't let DH watch a horror movie even during the day if he's going to work night shift any time soon! I'm a chicken and I admit it! LOL)

Want to know what movies make fans shiver in the dark? The top five scariest movie titles include:
1. The Exorcist (31 percent)
2. A Nightmare on Elm Street (19 percent)
3. Halloween (15 percent)
4. Paranormal Activity (9 percent)
5. The Shining (9 percent)

(Pffttt.. I'm miffed. Not a single zombie movie on the list. Hmph.)

Over half of respondents (60 percent) said entering a dark house or
room spooks them the most after a scary movie, while others say it is hearing a strange noise (47 percent) or walking down the street at night alone (36 percent).

*The “Redbox Spooktacular Survey” polled more than 900 redbox consumers nationwide.


If you'd like to get your zombie fix on, redbox now has the first season of AMC's The Walking Dead available on DVD. Just in case you haven't seen it yet - in which case, run, don't walk and rent it. If you prefer vampires - the non sparkly type I hope - then you have got to see Priest if you haven't already. DH also recommends Let Me In.

Win it! Thanks to Redbox, one lucky reader is going to get to have a horror movie marathon! You'll get FIVE(5!) free one night movie codes so you can scare yourself to death!

I think the best two scary movies were Exorcist and the original shining. We have watched the Walking Dead and can't wait for it to start up again. Check out Tera Nova that is a good one this year.

I like reading what you have to say about scary movies. It amuses me. Scary movies do not. But, plenty of others to choose from, I hope.

OMG The Walking Dead is my latest obsession! I was so hooked last year, and was so bummed when it just ended after 6 episodes! I'm so glad it's back! And to me, scary movies are the definition of entertainment! I love em!

I love horror movies all year round. However in the month of October I go crazy! Watch'n scary movies is a custom since I was a little girl. I have to confess, I act as if nothing scares me. The truth is I AM A BIG BABY!! After watching several horror movies I run from my bathroom back to the bedroom. I jump back into bed, fearful that someone is going to grab my leg, I can't forget checking the closet. SHH!! Thanks for the giveaways :) fefekiki75@gmail.com

I like some scary movies and I don't care for some. I don't care for all the gore movies. What is suggested is more effective like Hitchcock movies. garrettsambo@aol.com

I can't stand to watch the movies that are truly scary; the ones that could actually happen. I find the zombie or monster movies fun.
