    Ah! A post that touches on one of my other favorite subjects...

    Exorcist

    Tombs of the Blind Dead (blind Templars come back to terrorize scantily clad Spanish women. There are actually four in the series)

    John Carpenter's The Thing

    The Haunting (the original, not the piece of **** remake)

    Lifeforce (space vampires run amock in London)

    The Last Man on Earth (based on the classic book, I Am Legend)

    The Changeling

    Hellraiser

    Night of the Living Dead

    The Silence of the Lambs

    The Mummy (the original)

    Freaks

    The Wicker Man

    The Brood

    The Prophecy (not the Christopher Walken one, althought that was a lot of fun)

    The Shining

    The Hitcher

    The Fly (Cronenberg version, awesome atmosphere, especially in the last scene)

    The Seven Doors of Death

    Session 9

    Videodrome

    Dark Water (a nice one, creepy all throughout but the end is a bit of a let down)

    Evil Dead Trap

    The Grudge (good remake, the original is better but the American version is easier to engage with)

    God, there are so many I'm probably forgetting that gave me a nice chill. Suspiria and anything else by Argento is great. Zombie 2 of course. The Italians owned horror for a while, now the balls is in the Japanese court. Lots of freaky imagery coming from Japan, interesting and unfamiliar myths. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.

    Anyone interested in horror movies should pick up a copy of Rue Morgue and Cemetery Dance, two magazines with great horror book and movie reviews and recommendations.

    I'm a sucker for Jap horror..

    The Ring (Enjoyed the US version also)

    Ju-on-The Grudge (Enjoyed the US remake as well, was quite different from original)

    Ju-Rei (similar to Ju-on-The Grudge, but quite different storyline)

    The Eye (Chinese)

    Dark Water (like CDB said, ending was a let-down)

    Here's a great site for you Asian horror fans - has reviews (and spoilers) of pretty much all of the popular Asian horror films:

    Jaws? Scared the piss outta me at the theater when I was an impressionable 13.

    A good list so far, another would be the unedited version of "Cannibal Holocaust", some sick animal sacrifice scenes.

    What's the name of the jap flick where the young women goes on a date and is spurrned by the guy, then captures him for torture, along with another torture slave she has back at home. That's one weird sick flick, it's rare and I can't remember the name.

    I thought "Event Horizon" the unedited Euro version is much harder than the American release was not great, but pretty creepy and quite a concept if and when we ever develop a stardrive, NASA beware.

    One that's definetly NOT making my list is the current "Doom", it's slow, badly acted and boring, pass on that one.

    One thing that's always wrong in horror flicks is the perpetual state of flight the victims stay in, wrong. Humans are vicious predators, it dose'nt take long for flight to turn to fight, fear fairly quickly turns to homicidal fury in most people.

    Yup. I knew I forgot some good ones. The animal killings in that film are real, not the human ones. There are some nice ritual murders, cannibalism and impalings though. The uncut DVD has a prominent position in my DVD collection.

    Eraserhead is another I forgot. Great imagery.

    Was a littlle too much like a 2001 Hellraiser mix for me.

    Not many people liked it when it first hit the theaters. Most people your age like horror movies inthe vein of Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, or more formulaic stuff like Darkness Falls. Few people get into the Lovecraftian side of things. the everybody's ****ed kind of horror movie that doesn't need a sexy chick with big tits.

    Now, I love big tits in horror movies, but that's a different type of horror movie.

    Halloween is the best horror IMO by far. It set the standard for films after it.

    Unfortunately they started taking the piss after Halloween II...

    Anyone seen Cannibal Halocaust?

    I'm not sure I can call all of these horror movies:
    Alien,
    Aliens,
    American Werewolf in London,
    Army of Darkness,
    Bordello of Blood,
    Demon Night,
    From Dusk til Dawn,
    The Fly,
    The Hidden,
    The Hitcher,
    Near Dark,
    Reanimator,
    The Thing (John Carpenter),
    and maybe Scanners, but I haven't seen it in a while.

    Yup. Seventies gore, the animal murders are kind of hard to tolerate because you know they're real. The human murders and tortures are done well. It's documentaryesque style, has a feeling of realism to a lot of it that people often try for but rarely achieve. Look at it as the progenitor of the Blair Witch style horror movie.

    I'm adding another horror flick...

    I have to add DELIVERANCE to the list because every man find that movie scary. When that hillbilly told Ned Beatty to crawl in the mud, squeal like a pig and then he rape him in front of his friends...A lot of guys stop going camping after that movie.

    We all know that banjo tune. {That sound mean get the "F" out of the woods...quickly.}

    Not a lot of people liked it, but I think Cabin Fever was a really good one. The concept of the protagonist turning into the antagonist was really refreshing.

    Not a chance. Or, if they do, it's severely cut. Revok online has a great bunch of titles not available here in the US Cannibal Holocaust is one of them. That's where I got my copy.

    The uncut version pops up on P2P every few months, virtually everything on this list does. I can't remember the last time I bought a movie or big pay for view event.

    My wife hates watching movies with me cause I'm always giving tactical critiques, the concept of 'ambush" is frequently suggested and damn if they ever listen to me

    If I were to base it on longlasting impact it would have to be "Jaws" for me. I saw it in the theater when it first came out in the 70's and I still get a little squirrely in the ocean.
    The Omen is another of my favorites

    That makes you, me and a few million other people who to this day are still a little afraid of the Ocean. That was one scary flick when seen in the theater by us then youngins.

    Geez - I am really old........I thought that Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte was about the scariest thing ever and I am betting that you guys won't know it.

    I also remembering seeing What ever happened to Baby Jane? and being freaked, too.


    I can no longer watch them, I just get too freaked. I remember seeing The Shining when I was about 21 and I was afraid for days - I kept picturing the blood flowing down the hallways of the hotel like a huge tide.

    I saw about ten minutes of "Hostel" last night, damn.

    That is one hardcore horror/torture flick, not for the squeamish.

    People that thought "Passion of the Christ" was too brutal should avoid this one.

    Unfortunately, the movie was very mundane...but it did have a lot of hot, naked Euro chicas.

    I've only seen a small portion of it, the violence was anything but mundane, what, specifically, makes it a mundane movie in your opinion?
