Answer by KatiCar
I am not a senior but I am a big Horror Movie Buff and have seen all of these.

House on Haunted Hill is great, I think that movie is so underrated.
Psycho is AWESOME. :) You haven’t seen horror til you’ve seen it.
The exorcist is of course a classic.
Carnival of souls can be cheesy but I think it’s a pretty creepy idea.

Those are my favorites of the ones you listed :) If I remember right cape fear was pretty good too.

Question by Julia: How to have a sleepover like Massie Block?
Please don’t answer if you don’t know her! Please include in your answer …what the group wear for panjamis,how she set it up,what games they play,etc!

Answer by Juicy
1 Set a specific date, time, and place for your sleepover. Massie has sleepovers every Friday night. You can have them on any day you want. Only invite your clique. Keep your limit on guests to 3 or 4. More than that could cause too much drama. Though the sleepover should be exclusive, a lot of people should know about it.

2
Hold your sleepover in a large area where you usually hang out with your friends. This could be your bedroom, entertainment room, or basement. Let the room feel like a getaway. Put vanilla scented candles in safe places around the room to set the mood. Parents might not want you to have candles, so if that sounds too dangerous, simply spray Vanilla scented room spray or perfume before the guests arrive. Don’t overdo it though – you don’t want the guests to choke! Lavender sheet spray is also provided for the sleeping bags at Massie’s sleepovers. If you have enough money you can buy each guest a nail polish or something and put it on their sleeping bag. To give a five star feel, put chocolates or Andes mint chocolates on the pillows. Also, have the lights dimmed a little bit if you have a dimmer switch in your room. Bring your pet if she’ll stay – don’t force her! (that’s obnoxious x10). Make sure none of your friends are allergic. Tell your family members to try to keep from coming in your room and interrupting your sleepover.

3
Set up the sleeping bags in a cool arrangement, preferably a “flower” pattern, with your heads in the middle. This allows easy snacking, and more importantly, gossiping! Also, everyone is surrounded by friends and no one is on the edge.
4
Make the bathroom fresh. Put lit scented candles (if it’s ok with your parents) in the bathroom, put a new roll of toilet paper on the holder, make sure the soap container is full, and keep fresh towels in the bathroom. Only put shampoo, conditioner, and body wash that you want the guests to use in the shower/tub. Avoid confusion by not making guests feel overloaded by tons of old, raunchy containers of shampoo. Also, give the bathroom a spritz of room spray to match the candles’ scent. Make sure that you’re close to the bathroom so it allows easy bathroom breaks and no rushing.

5
If you want, think of a cool theme or activity for each sleepover. Some examples are camping (like in book 5, “The Pretty Committee Strikes Back,” Massie has a camping themed sleepover complete with fresh pine scented room spray, a fake plastic campfire, glow-in-the-dark stars hanging from the ceiling, a CD player playing fake cricket noises, and dimmed lights). Plan some ideas for fun, such as: Would You Rather?, Wear or Dare, Truth or Dare, Twister, etc. Add any fun games that you can think of that match your sleepovers theme. Play popular music all night long (you can make a playlist before the sleepover). Keep recent magazines handy.

6
The PC is known for their great fashion sense. Why not have a fashion show? If you want to spend some extra time with your clique, go shopping with them and try on different outfits for the fashion show. Or, have your clique bring clothes that they don’t want, and spice them up for a fun craft. Walk on the “runway” and take plenty of pictures. Try bring clothes that are cute, but don’t work on you. You and your friends can trade them.

7. If you have a desktop and/or laptop (like Massie), take both funny and cute pictures.

8. No movies allowed! Massie specifically said in “Invasion of the Boy Snatchers” that DVDs are off limits at her sleepovers. ou can watch movies on nights when you are alone.

9. Have ah-mazing food. Have a snack bowl for each guest full of their favorites. Usually, Massie serves sparkling cider. Always have a second drink choice (like soda) for picky guests. Make sure you have healthy snacks AND junk food.

10.Try not to fall asleep first. You will seem boring and just not fun! That way you won’t miss out on any gossip or pranks!

11.make sure that there is a nice breakfast for your friends such as pancakes, bagels, fruit salad, etc. . You can make most of these before the sleepover – just leave them in the fridge overnight.

12.As each of the girls leave, give them a cute party favor, like a tube of lip gloss, a key chain with a picture of you and her in it, chocolates.

  1. mr scream jeans says:

    yes some of them but the exorcist was the only one that gave me fright
    thanks for a reminder of some great horror times

  2. Roe says:

    I seen most of them and some you didn’t even mention. I did not see Cape Fear or Carnival of Souls.
    The rest scared the ba-jeebies out of me. The thrillers back then used subtle things to scare you not like today when it is so gross and gruesome. You just want to vomit!

  3. Spike says:

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers—Good
    The Blob—Bad
    House on Haunted Hill—Good
    Psycho—Good
    Cape Fear—Good
    Carnival of Souls—Bad
    The Haunting—Haven’t seen it.
    The Exorcist—Good

  4. z says:

    I think i had weird nightmares after seeing invasion , isn’t that the one where the dog has a face of a man.There is a story in spanish something like the dog with the mans face and it haunted me for years lol.

  5. daisy says:

    But did you see the Rocky Horror Picture Show? There are clubs everywhere for that pic.

  6. Grela LaTuc says:

    Yes, I saw all of them. Unfortunately I never really found them that frightening. I was never afraid to go into the shower after Psycho. Hitchcock’s The Birds scared me more. I still have a twinge of fear whenever I see birds gathering. I also actually like The Blob, not the remake but the original. It’s campy, but I enjoy it.

  7. ontmale says:

    i like all these movies. but there is one movie not here That i did like . but it left it mark on me. IT was about a man turning young men into SNAKES. And after i seen dogs with blue eyes. i would think about that movie. and i get feeling maybe they were young men turn into dogs and i didn’t like them looking at me. OF course they weren’t. but i just felt that for years. I am just getting used seeing dogs with blue eyes. but the other movies didn’t bother me like this one did
    cheers

  8. But Inside I'm Screaming says:

    Most of them, and like them all (except Carnival Of Souls-haven’t seen it). Subtle and psychological horror is so much better than just going for shock value like a lot of the newer movies do.

  9. ♥♥♥You Go Girl♥♥♥ says:

    Oooohhh, I seen them all yeah!! my favorites are The Exorcist and House on Haunted Hill…..you forgot Halloween…Boooooooo..=)

  10. Monty says:

    I saw the Blob. It was kind of funny.

    I read the book the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. I remember that I was sitting at the kitchen table, reading the description of these pods in the basement, snapping and making noise as they changed into replicas of the people in the house….. Just then, the cardboard top on our glass milk bottle raised up with a loud “pop!” I threw the book up in the air because I was so startled.

    I purposely did not go see Psycho. I was in nurse’s training then, studying psychology and working at the state hospital among real life psychotics. Life there was weird enough without seeing that movie.

    Never did see most of the ones on your list. Not my sort of thing.

  11. Jackolantern says:

    If I remember correctly, I have seen them all. Have you seen Hell House with Roddy McDowell? My favorite is Forbidden Planet which came out around 1955. It is a science fiction movie but I would classify it as a horror movie also. It lets you use your imagination.

  12. sandie says:

    i saw repulsion when pg and the exorcist when pg and both induced vomiting. the other classics have seen as adult. not the same as all alone walking home in the dark after the shrews. that gave my husband, a child at the time, the double whammies.

  13. Jackson says:

    The ones I saw were:
    “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” – at the ending, I had to stifle a scream !
    “The Blob” – not so bad but made me tired trying to escape, because “it creeps and creeps”.
    “Psycho” – couldn’t take a shower for months without watching for shadows behind the shower curtain.
    “The Exorcist” – read the book, saw the movie and both scared me buh, buh, buh bad!

    Didn’t see the other ones, but I do remember the very first horror film I ever saw – “The Thing”. Mother took me and my big sister to the Saturday afternoon picture show. I got so scared and started crying so hard that my sister had to take me out of the theater and call Mother to come take us home. Saw it again recently and thought, that was scary enough to make me cry???? LOL.

  14. Flower says:

    Yes, mostly the early 1960s except for The Exorcist and Invasion of The Body Snatchers.

    The Blob was pretty stupid, Steve McQueen’s first movie
    House on Haunted Hill was a mystery, I think Julie Harris, it was ok
    Psycho had a good cast and everyone likes that one
    Cape Fear with Mitchum and Polly Bergen was very good, Mitchum was a good pervert
    Carnival of Souls I dont remember but sounds like some German Expressionist silent movie
    The Haunting I did not see
    The Exorcist scared me. I was very shook up after seeing it, when it came out. At that time we had not yet had very gory horrifying films.
