1. THE RING — “My favorite scary movie is The Ring, which I know some people would say is not that scary because it’s PG-13. But I’m from Seattle, so when you see something like that happen in places that you’re familiar with, it’s even more scary. I think that’s why Paranormal Activity was so scary to some people because it was in a basic apartment building that everybody is familiar with.”

2. THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE — “But only because of the name. I haven’t seen it, but I’m going to say it’s a favorite because I feel that we’re very close relatives. I talk about it all the time. I’ve never been possessed, but my husband would probably disagree. Just kidding!”

3. MISERY — “Kathy Bates is freaking scary, and in that sterile sort of environment, no bueno, not good. I’m not a huge scary movie person because they’re too scary, so the ones that I do have are a bit lightweight.”

Her favorite Stephen King adaptation:

STAND BY ME — “To watch the characters of those boys freak out at a very young age is priceless, and you can just identify with that. It also has a Northwest sort of a feeling.”
