Day 30 - Your favorite horror film of all time 

So let me get this started with "A horror film that no one would expect you to love, but you do" and my vote goes to.....

Curse III: Blood Sacrifice - Some people said it was too slow moving. Some people said it wasn't violent enough. Some people said it was too self serious. However, for me, Curse III captures the spirit, the essence of what I would think a monster movie should be from back in the black and white days of horror, but updates it just enough to give it a modern twist. I, especially, love how they keep the monster off screen for just about the entire film so that it builds up that sense of wonder as to the big reveal of the creature.
