We all love settling down, turning out the lights and sitting through a whole uninterrupted horror flick, but sometimes you just need a quick fix. That's where Harry Hanrahan comes in, with this massive compilation of memorable quotes from some of the greatest horror films of all time.
The video has all the quotes you'd expect, plus a few you wouldn't. "They're coming to get you, Barbara," from Night of the Living Dead is here, as is "They're here!" from Poltergeist, and the often-abused "It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again" from The Silence of the Lambs.
But there are also a number of commendably surprising choices slipped in among the predictable quotes. You'll also find bits from White Zombie, Suspiria and even Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff facing off in The Black Cat. And of course Hanrahan found room for "When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth."
The only thing that might have made this more impressive is if the 100 quotes had been assembled from 100 different horror films. Halloween, It, Carrie, The Shining and The Haunting are among several films pulled from more than once. But that doesn't make it any less impressive. Check it out for a quick refresher course in great horror dialogue, and in case you're looking for something specific, here's a handy list:
