My All-Time Favorite, Scary Good Action Horror Movies

It’s summer time, and that means lots and lots of blockbuster pictures. It also means we’ll be on a steady diet of action movies, which is both good and bad. Good because I freakin’ LOVE action movies. Bad because that means there aren’t a lot of horror movies.

They embody all the coolness of traditional action movies with the supernatural and horror baddies I love to watch.
