My Horror Collection: J

Jack Frost (Michael Cooney, 1997)

This is a so-bad-it’s-good Christmas horror romp. This is one of those moves that grew on me the more I watched it. I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of it when I watched it initially. You can’t go wrong with a fun b-horror Christmas movie anyway!

Jaws (Steven Spielberg, 1975)

A classic, of course, and the only shark movie I really, truly like…besides The Meg (2018) now, I guess.

Jaws 2 (Jeannot Szwarc, 1978)

I got this in a Horror Pack, but it’s also the first ever Jaws movie I ever watched. I remember seeing this on TV ages and ages ago now when I was little. So, when I finally got around to watching the original, when I really started getting into horror, I was confused because I was remembering this one. I was too young to realize that this was the sequel.

Jaws 3-D (Joes Alves, 1983)

Again, got this in a Horror Pack, I have seen it once or twice. Frankly, nothing beats the original, at least in terms of the Jaws franchise. The one good thing I can say about this one and the second Jaws, there’s a whole lot more shark in these films, so that’s always a plus!

Jeepers Creepers/Jeepers Creepers 2 (Victor Salva, 2001/2003)

I bought this forever ago back when MovieStops were still around. That was before I knew about the director’s past. To be honest, I like the first one and I’ll probably still dig it out and watch it from time to time. The same can NOT be said for the most recent, and third, film which will never touch my horror shelves as it is a piece of garbage. But, I guess it takes one to make one, you know?

Jennifer’s Body (Karyn Kusama, 2009)

A totally underrated movie, and yes, I think Jennifer’s Body is completely underrated! I could write a whole dissertation on this film, it tells such a kick-ass, female-centric story that even some of the more feminist horror movies miss. I feel like so many people write this movie off just because Megan Fox is in it!

Jessabelle (Kevin Greutert, 2014)

This is a snooze-fest. Check this one out in place of an Ambien.

Joyride (John Dahl, 2001)

I haven’t seen this one all the way through. I know a lot of people like it, I just haven’t gotten around to it. I’ve only seen bits and pieces of it on television.
