  1. LET NAME THE BEST HORROR MOVIES


    Aliens 2
    Jeeper Creepers
    Halloween
    Nightmare on Elm Street {the first one}
    Poltergeist
    Pet Semetary
    The Exorcist
    The evil dead
    Night of the living dead


  2. 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.

  3. I thought that SAW was a great movie and im about to see SAW II tonight. i'll let you know how it is

  4. Audition
    Suspiria is one the most visually stunning ever
    Tomei: Replay
    Ringu
    The Vanishing
    Rosemary's Baby
    ReAnimator

    Anything by Fulci or Argento makes the list

  5. I agree with many that have already been posted. I also like:

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    Last House on the Left
    Scream

    I'm sure more will come to mind...

    dd

  6. the shining (the two little girls that say 'come play with us danny' freaked me out)
    the ring (that goth chick and that trippy ass walk she does freaked me out)
    texas chainsaw massacre (no explanation needed)
    nightmare on elm street I
    the exorcist

  7. Stephen King's "IT"
    Clown House
    Ghoulies ( The toilet monster freaked me out for a long time.)
    Darkness Falls
    Friday the 13th III
    ~ Nothing can kill the Grimace!!



  8. 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:

    http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/index2.htm

  9. Evil Dead II

  10. Audition

  11. The Fly {when all of his body parts start to fall off, it gave me the hives}

    All Vampire movies {updated}

    Pitch Black

    The ring {That girl coming out of the tv gave the new meaning of fear}

    Omen {You just don't mess with the devil}

    HellRaiser

    How about Thriller {just a joke}

  12. 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.

  16. 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?

    Amen

  18. Halloween! I snuck into the Atco drive-in to see it way back when I was 16...
    Then had to walk... umm I mean run home through the woods BY MY SELF!!!! Great movie

  19. 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.

  20. SAW I
    SAW II

  21. Dead Alive was great if you like the goofy gory type of horror film.

    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.

  23. "House of 1000 Corpses" and definitly "Hellraiser"

  24. Hmmm, I have to check that movie out. I wonder do Blockbuster have that movie in stock.

  25. SPACE JAM

  26. Darkness Falls. Holy **** that was a scary one.

  27. 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.}

  28. Friday the 13th part 3
    House of 1000' corpses
    Evil Dead
    night of the living dead
    halloween 1

    I love friday the 13th part 3. It holds alot of "special" memorys.

  29. The Return Of The Living Dead is the best horror and zombie movie ever. The scarest movie I've ever seen in my life. And by the way, walking zombie aren't that scary.

  30. I saw SAW II, it was awesome, i think it was the best horror movie i have ever seen, i highly reccomend it

  31. 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.

  34. 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

  35. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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.

  40. 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?
