Horror Movie Quotes Part 2


So, awhile back I did horror movie quotes blog. Now it’s time for for Part 2.  Why?  ‘Cause it’s my blog.  That and the fact that when we love a movie, there’s always a line or two that just sticks with us.  And if the movie has a large cultural impact, it actually makes it into our regular vernacular.  There are just some lines that click for audiences, they summarize the tone of the entire movie and just imprint themselves on us.  For example “May the Force be with you”, is something that anyone, even those freaks who have not seen any Star Wars movie will recognize.  But this is a horror blog, so here is my list of famous Horror movie quotes (part 2).

“You’re gonna need a bigger boat” -Chief Martin Brody (Jaws – 1975)

This particular quote has been parodied and repeated since the movie’s premiere in 1975.  We use in situations where we find ourselves inadequately prepared.  The best ad-libbed line of all time, imho.

“What’s your favorite scary movie?” -Ghostface (Scream – 1996)

Okay, really, who hasn’t repeated that line at least once.

“A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti” -Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs – 1991)

Parodied by several shows, movies, and friends, probably an annoyance to anyone named Clarice, but who can do it with such chilling creepiness as Anthony Hopkins?

“I see dead people” -Cole Sear (Sixth Sense – 1999)

Okay, probably the most parodied line in my list.

“Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.” – Count Dracula (Dracula – 1931)

Um, I just love this line-sufficiently creepy.

“Soylent Green is people!” – Det. Robert Thorn (Soylent Green- 1973)

Okay, another oft-quoted and parodied line.  I absolutely become friends with anyone who knows where this line comes from.  Ahhh, I love the movie.  It’s just not a Charlton Heston movie, if he’s not yelling dramatically at some point.

“Be afraid… Be very afraid.”-Ronnie (The Fly-1986)

I haven’t seen this move in a long while.  I had forgotten this line was from this movie.

“They’re all going to laugh at you!”-Margaret White (Carrie-1976)

My favorite parody of this particular line is from That 70s Show.

“Look! It’s moving. It’s alive. It’s alive… It’s alive, it’s moving, it’s alive, it’s alive, it’s alive, it’s alive, IT’S ALIVE!-Dr. Frankenstein (Frankenstein-1931)

Who hasn’t heard this one?

“He-e-e-e-re’s Johnnie!”-Jack Torrance (The Shining-1980)

Only Jack Nicholson could take a memorable Tonight Show line and drown it in such creepiness and foreboding.

“I’m here to kick ass and chew gum, and I’m all out of bubblegum.”-Roddy Piper (They Live 1988)

So cheesy, yet sums up the awesomeness of this movie.

“We all go a little mad sometimes.”-Norman Bates (Psycho-1960)

Probably the simplest yet creepiest line in my list.  Chills!

Horror Movie Quotes–Which ones made chills run up and down your spine?


1.  – Body Snatchers

“Where you gonna go, where you gonna run, where you gonna hide? Nowhere… ‘Cause there’s no one like you left.

That one still gives me the tinglies.  This is from the made for t.v. version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, 1993.  Not the best movie, but when an abnormally subdued-ly dressed Meg Tilly says this….whew..chills!

2.  –Dawn of the Dead

“When there’s no more room in Hell, the dead will

walk the Earth.”

That’s the excuse some televangelist has for the zombies overrunning the planet in George Romero’s 1978 movie.

3.  – Night of the Living Dead

“They’re coming to get you Barbara!”

Barbara’s brother says this to Barbara in jest-right before he gets killed and zombified in George Romero’s genre starter–1968s Night of the Living Dead.

4.  – A Nightmare on Elm Street

“1 – 2 – Freddy’s coming for you

3 – 4 – Better lock your door5 – 6 – Grab your crucifix
7 – 8 – Better stay up late
9 – 10 – Never sleep again…”

ahhh…memories….I used to sing this to my little sister who would run away in abject terror.  I was merciless, sorry sis.  It creeped me out too.

5.   – The Poltergeist

“They’re Here-e-e-e-e…!”

Little blonde girl says this to her parents while talking to the white noise from the television.  Right before she gets sucked in to her closet because of the angry Native American spirits who were disturbed by suburbia being built upon their graves….’nuff said.

I know that there are a lot more out there.  Feel free to comment and add more.
