10 Things You Didn't Know About Maika Monroe

6. Her Favourite Horror Movies Are The Shining, Halloween & A Nightmare On Elm Street

One of the questions that any budding "Scream Queen" constantly gets asked is what their favourite horror movies are. Proving she's got great taste in films as well as gorgeous looks and a ton of charm, Monroe has named The Shining, Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street as her favourite horror movies. Of the classic flicks, she said, "I grew up with horror...My dad loves movies and he passed a lot of them on to me. There€™s something so fun about them. The Shining, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween. Those are the greats...I think it was probably middle school, we€™d have sleepovers and rent three horror movies. I remember Nightmare On Elm Street was a huge one that just scared the s*** out of me at that age...I just remember with Nightmare not being able to sleep because if you fell asleep in that film you got killed in your dreams. With The Shining €“ it just visually leaves an impact with you €“ it's like my worst nightmare."
