“The strength of the vampire is that people will not believe in him.” – Van Helsing
Not as well-known as the “children of the night” quote, but I think it’s better. It’s true and it’s actually a little frightening.
The Evil Dead
“Soon all of you will be like me… And then who will lock you up in a cellar?” – Deadite
No cool Ash line in this one, so I went for this quote. The deadite locked in the cellar really knows how to creep people out.
“I can see you dirty pillows. Everyone will.” – Mom
This is a more silly quote, but I couldn’t really find any good badass lines in Carrie. The mom here doesn’t like Carrie’s dress because it has a little cleavage and so everyone will see her ‘dirty pillows’.
“Oh no, it wasn’t the airplanes. It was beauty killed the beast.” – Denham
A great quote and featured on the AFI 100 years, 100 quotes list at nr. 84.
“Who’s going to believe a talking head? Get a job in a freakshow.” – Herbert West
Another “funny” quote, this time Herbert West is talking to Dr. Hill, who he has just decapitated and then brought back to life.
“Death has come to your little town, sheriff.” Dr. Loomis
Obviously Loomis is talking about Michael Myers. Death is a suitable nickname for that psycho.
“This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.” – Ripley
Great line and the last of the movie. It reminds you that everybody is dead (except her and the cat) and that she is alone drifting in space.
“These broads would hump the leaning tower op Pisa if they could get up there!” – Mrs. MacHenry
I would love to see that.
“We accept you, one of us! Gooble gobble!” – The Freaks
As Cleopatra marries one of the freaks she got this song as a welcoming gift to their little “family”. She didn’t like it, to say the least.
“It will cost you sweat and tears, and perhaps… A little blood.” – Knock
Quotes are rare in silent movies but Nosferatu has quite a few. This one I liked the best.
But which is the best line of them all?
Just like with the death scenes it’s between Alien and King Kong. Both these quotes send chills down my spine but in the end I love Ripley’s line more. Alien it is.
Best Quote: Alien
So, that’s it for my first challenge updates. Alien came out the strongest with two wins (coolest character and best quote). When I finish the next ten movies you can expect challenge update #2.
This is watchawatchin, signing off.
