I have to watch scary movies for a class!

I am required to watch 2 scary movies for The Nature of Evil in Literature. I'm opting for The Ring & Silence of the Lambs.

Somehow, I have to read/comprehend books like Inferno by Dante, too.

I'm just really excited....I think this class could be hard, but man....I get to read books I actually like(I love the concept of Dante's Inferno, loved Dr. Jekyll & Mr Hyde) & watch scary movies!

Just Inferno, not the entire Divine Comedy?
Still, sounds like a fun class.

Just the Inferno. Although, if I get the time, I have been meaning to read so many of the "Classic" books.

Read it do.
I recommend Beowulf too if you can find a well translated copy.

I'd fail! I can not make myself watch scary movies! I tend to dream heavily about any movies I watch. So yeah, I'd fail! I hope you enjoy it though!

Then again I would be having nightmares from that class or really anxious all the time

The Ring freaked me out, there was no way I was going to watch the sequal when it came out!!

I liked both of those movies - The Ring spooked me out more then SoL - when we came home I keep looking at the phone praying it would not ring that night!

I really liked The Ring. The Japanese version was pretty good too. If you ever want to watch some freaky Japanese horror flicks, pick up "Oldboy" or "A Tale of Two Sisters."

Silence of the Lambs isn't a scarey movie.

I recomment "Amityville Horror" (the original one with James Brolin)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078767/

Or "The Shining" with Jack Nicholson

The Ring scared the pants off of me too! Silence of the Lambs gets better every time you watch it

I've never read Dante's Inferno either, but I think that is a "must read" book

I'm so jealous of this class!! I wanna take The Nature of Evil in Lit

Silence of the Lambs is a great movie. Its not in the least "scary" nor would I consider it a horror movie, but it is a great one regarding the "nature of evil" in man.

The Ring freaked me out. I will never watch it again, or the second one. Nor will I watch the Grudge. Those little white painted kids scare me to death in the commercials, lol.

If you have to read Dante's Inferno, this might help you in your 'scary' studies!

It's a link to Dore Illustrations for Dante's Inferno:

I have the book and like to look at it now and then, it lets me realize
there are things 'seen and unseen.'

I recommend "Bride of Frankenstein," excellent movie, and it does make you think about the nature of evil. I wouldn't recommend "The Shining," just because the book conveys the message better. The twins freak me out, though!
