    Your Favourite Horror Movies

    Please post some of your favourite horror movies! I'm on Spring break and I'm really bored!



    A couple of days ago, I watched Dark Water (the US version) and Death Bell (a South Korean movie). Dark Water was ok, but I absolutely loved Death Bell!

    American Warewolf in London has to be one of the best. It's got everything - good acting, cute guys, funny, horror.

    I also really like Shaun of the Dead. I guess I like funny with my horror.

    I highly recommend both.
    And so, dear Lord, it is with deep sadness that we turn over to you this young woman, whose dream to ride on a giant swan resulted in her death. Maybe it is your way of telling us... to buy American.

    Any of the Saw movies. I liked that there were reasons behind the way people were killed, and I like any movies where people are killed in creative ways. Not sure what that says about me haha.

    John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness

    One of the scariest movies I've seen.

    Another one I liked was Invasion of the Bodysnatchers from the 1970's with Donald Sutherland in it.

    I'm not much into horror flicks (though it seems all the kids at MiniCyn's school love them).

    The ones that scared the crap out of me were The Shining, The Exorcist, Silence of the Lambs, and Rosemary's Baby.

    I tried watching Saw (stumbled on it by accident) and nearly freaked the feck out . I just don't understand how anyone can derive pleasure from watching people being tortured. Scared is one thing, but those kinds of movies take it to a whole new level.

    I also watched 8mm one night and had nightmares afterwards .
    Gun Control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars.

    Oh I just love horror films! My favorite classics are:

    Nightmare on Elm Street (especially #3 Dream Warriors with Patricia Arquette)
    Friday the 13th
    Burnt Offerings (looks like the whole thing is uploaded!)
    Poltergeist
    Halloween (not all of them, mainly the first two and I also enjoyed the remakes)

    Some of my other favorites (foreign, more recent, etc.)

    High Tension (Haute Tension)
    Audition
    Paranormal Activity
    Saw (only the first few, the franchise ran its course a long time ago, IMO)

    I know I have a lot more but I need to think some more on it!

    I hate horror films but one of the best is the original "Halloween". That iconic music and white mask are downright creepy.

    You might enjoy "The Others" if you don't already know the ending. It's kind of slow though.

    Today horror movies rely graphic gores to shock and scare audience. They really don't know to make them like they used to anymore.

    Agreed. There's very little creativity to scare and create a very eerie mood anymore. It's either blood and gore, or blatant around the corner scare tactics. Not to mention they always create "happy endings" to most scary movies these days.

    I'm sure it looks cheesy now, but Burnt Offerings made a big impression on me when I was a teen. Same with Carrie.

    On of my favorites from recent years is The Others.

    Like Cyn, I like scary, not grotesque.

    For pure cheesy fun the classic "Night of the Living Dead" can't be beat
    Also: The Pit and the Pendulum
    Any of the Bela Lugosi Dracula movies. They combine genuine creepiness with godawful visual effects
    I loved "Let the Right One In" - it's a Swedish vampire movie. True creepiness, revenge, all the stuff you want in a horror movie

    I've had this movie burned onto my computer for months and months and have yet to watch it! Maybe tonight!

    I suppose it's the Japanese movie. I was searching for Japanese horror movies and I came across this one. I started watching it, but then I found another Japanese movie - Cursed. I looked everywhere for it, but I couldn't find it. Does anyone know where I can find it?

    This is a really broad genre. It's difficult to compare slasher movies with the British Hammer Studio films of the 60s. What about Alfred Hitchcock? The Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein, etc movies of the 30s? Where do occult and horror/science fiction movies belong? How about the silents?

    I think my very favorites are the horror films that rely on suspense, suggestion, atmosphere, the feeling that something is not...quite...right.
    The Cabinet of Dr Caligari-1920 silent
    The Birds-1963
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers-(Original) 1956
    The Shining-1980

    One of my favorite things to do when I'm bored is to look up old horror film trailers on YouTube. I've seen (amongst others) the trailers for the original The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes. Yikes.
