Top Thirteen Horror Flicks
When it comes to horror movies and horror stories, I’m a wimp. My eyes squeeze tight and I bury my head at the first sign of approaching blood, guts and gore. I’ve seen a few movies on this list. (I think someone dragged me to them. LOL.) The only exception is Alien. That was a series that I actually went back to see the sequels. Maybe because it had that touch of sci fi to it.
There is a list of the top 50 scariest horror films at Boston.com. If you want to see the

1. “In the First World War, and for the first time in the history of man, nations combined to fight against nations using the crude weapons of those days. The Second World War involved every continent on the globe, and men turned to science for new devices of warfare, which reached an unparalleled peak in their capacity for destruction. And now, fought with the terrible weapons of super-science, menacing all mankind and every creature on the Earth comes
