My Favorite Scary Movie: Claire Holt Fears 'The Silence Of The Lambs'

Claire HoltBoo! Did we scare you? No? Okay, well, maybe a fright-night feature will get your knees knocking. In anticipation of Halloween, we asked a slew of celebrities to suggest their favorite scary movies to get you in the mood for the ooky, spooky holiday.

You probably know today's guest blogger, Claire Holt, best as "Barbie Klaus" Rebekah on The CW's "Vampire Diaries." Which flicks give Claire nightmares? "The Silence of the Lambs"!

My favorite scary movie would, without a doubt, be "The Silence of the Lambs." Anthony Hopkins' portrayal of the menacing Hannibal Lector is perhaps one of the most frightening and brilliant performances ever. The psychological element to this film is what makes it so much scarier than an average slasher film. I remember being so disturbed after watching it that I swore to myself I would never watch it at night again. I probably should have vowed not to watch it again at any time as it is just as scary in the daylight! A definite must see, even if it's only once.
