Classic Horror Movie Quotes

Ok. It’s time for another confession from the life of Page agrocos - yours truly, the LBOH chick. And that confession is that I love great movie quotes. It’s not even that I just love them. It’s that I use them in everyday conversation.



(Hello - my name is Petra and I am a movie quoting nerd.) SWEEET!

My husband is equally taken with classic quotes. Unfortunately however, being as he does not favor horror movies of the B flavor, I am left reciting these gems on deaf (dare I say “dumb”?) ears. Oh sure, let me throw out a “I’m a natural blue” or “Shut up and take the pain!” and he’s all over it like a fat kid on a candy bar, but let me try “Bad, Bad, Wrong, Bad” and he looks at me like he’s Bambi caught in the headlights of my SUV.

So, since I can’t get him to appreciate these quotes, perhaps you - being the cheesy B horror fans that you are - will. And although I realize there are a gajillion more classic horror movie quotes and I am forgetting some really good ones, here is a short list of my favorites.

Feel free to add your favorites in comments. I’d love to learn some new ones! (Plus I could do this all day. :-) )

They Live: “Life’s a bitch, and she’s back in heat!” House Of The Dead: “Morte? That’s Spanish for death. Guess you don’t speak Mexican, huh?” Return of The Living Dead 2: “Look, they’re ugly and they’re dirty and they’re dumb, and I don’t even care if they are dead.” They Live: “I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass… and I’m all out of bubblegum.”

The Shining: “Wendy… darlin’… light-of-my-life…. I said I’m not gonna hurt ya’. I’m just gonna bash your brains in. I’m gonna bash em’ right the fuck in!!” Army of Darkness: “Yo, She-bitch! let’s go!” “You ain’t leading but two things right now: Jack and Shit, and Jack just left town.” Shaun Of The Dead: “Who died and made you fuckin’ king of the zombies?” Night Of The Creeps: “I’ve got some good news and some bad news, your prom dates are here, bad news is they’re dead.” Psycho: “We all go a little mad sometimes.” Ghostbusters: “Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god, you say YES!”
