The Exorcist 1973 (saw as a child and it freaked me out)

Evil Dead 2 Dead by Dawn GROOVY!

EvilDead (sure Dead by Dawn is better but, I love this series)

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984 definitely some of the others were good but near the end they went became more comedy than horror).

Hellraiser (definitely a classic)

Shaun of the Dead (great combination of horror and comedy)

Zombieland (see above)

Cemetery Man

I don't know about every Romero film but, definitely Night, Dawn and Day.

Slither (hell yes!)

Drag Me to Hell (Rami finally is back!)

Suspiria (Dario Argento nuff said)

Return of the Living Dead (1985) Sure Romero's is better but this is fun and has a great punk soundtrack featuring The Cramps, The Damned and others.

American Werewolf in London (awesome movie great marriage of horror and comedy and some of the best horror fx courtesy of Mr. Rick Baker)

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original really twisted to see when you're younger)

Alien (okay technically not a horror film but, fuck that movie was terrifying when I saw it as a kid)

Phantasm (1978) Tall man, silver floating balls :eek:

Jaws (1975) I still think of this movie anytime I'm swimming in a large body of water.

Carrie (1976) "They're all going to laugh at you!"

Dead Alive (Peter Jackson before LOTR I kick arse for the lord!)

Scanners (Another horror/sci fi film)

Halloween (1978) I loved the idea of just a regular psycho instead of the usual supernatural stuff. Plus the theme song man that THEME SONG!!!!

John Carpenter's The Thing (some great effects in this one and terrifying)

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

Creepshow

Eraserhead (definitely very twisted)

The Wickerman (1973)

Paranormal activity

That movie was awful one of the worst. I do not get why everyone thought that movie was so good and real. It is very obviouse that movie is staged.

I dont think its real. I just think that (in my eyes) Its brilliant. The slow opening makes u feel safe and shit then boom shit goes down. Idk i find it a horror masterpiece. Trust me i get shit for it all the time.

:lol: Can't believe I put Robert Jordan oops.


I wouldn't go that far but, it's much easier to watch Dead Alive instead of all three LOTR films. :lol:

Love showing Dead Alive and EvilDead to people then telling them the directors later did LOTR Trilogy and Spiderman respectively.

Meet the Feebles, Heavenly Creatures and Bad Taste were fun too! :party:


Oh fuck I just thought of another....how could I forget HP Lovecraft's The Re-Animator!

FUCK YES.

A lot of people gave Pontypool shit for being a "zombie" movie with very little blood/gore and action... but it has a killer atmosphere and A+ acting. Definitely one of my top 3 films of the last decade, with the other two being Repo! The Genetic Opera and Trick 'r Treat.

The Wicker Man? Seriously???? That was a fucking musical with 5 minutes of actual suspense! hahaha

I just watched Let Me In and I see why critics loved it. Safe to say the Agalloch/Alcest people will love it. People looking to be scared shitless won't.

LMI is very well made horror flick actually. I enjoyed Paranormal Activity 2 a little more. Also PA2 SMOKES the 1st one even though it starts off almost as slowly as the 1st one.

The first Paranormal Activity was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I caved on the hype because so many people were talking about scary it was. It got good review so I figured what the hell. I watched it online and I felt like I had been ripped off.Yo Gabba Gabba is scarier than Paranormal Activity.

Another great one!

Also I agree that Paranormal Activity was the biggest let down. But PA2 was one of the best experiences I have had in a movie theater, it ruled. I watched it on dvd but it didn't have the same effect unfortunately but I expected that, I will still always remember how great it was watching it in theaters. Hopefully PA3 is good now that I'm actually excited to see it.

yeah, watching a movie like that on a pc will never work. It's all about totally delving into it. I think many peopel who didn't like PA would still love PA2. It's way better and just works better.

Have you seen the original Swedish version? The American version was very good, but IMO it feels a bit rushed and not as well paced as the Swedish version.

The book the films are based on is also excellent, if you enjoy a good read now and then.

I'm not sure it was from 1973 though. It was really bad. I had pretty high expectations with the Maiden reference and people I thought knew movies recommending it but to put The Shining, The Exorcist and that movie in the same group is just nuts. It's not even a horror movie. It's like an Agatha Christie suspense/mystery/musical.

Oh no, there's certainly some confusion there with a different film. "Let Me In" the novel was only published in 2004, and the original Swedish film version was released in 2008.

Oh yes, also some useful information... if you decide to seek out the original Swedish film version of "Let Me In", you'll find the English-subtitled version under the title "Let the Right One In", which is the accurate translation of the original novel written in the Swedish language... "Låt den rätte komma in".

Sorry I was talking about The Wicker Man being from 1973. I was confused because I thought Wicker Man might actually be a decent book but was an absolutely terrible movie with horrific musical numbers whenever it started to get semi-interesting.

I liked Let Me In and watched the bonus footage that referenced the original Swedish movie. I'd definitely be interested in checking out that original.

Never really thought about, but here's my top 15 (in somewhat of an order):

1) Devil's Reject's
2) Halloween 2 (1982 version obviously)
3) Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers
4) Eden Lake - Not really horror, but I loved it. Definately worth checking out.
5) The Loved Ones (2009) - Hasn't been released in the US. Fuckin brutal!!
6) Mr. Brooks - Not really horror again, but a solid flick.
7) House of 1,000 Corpses
8) The Last House on The Left : Original version
9) Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
10) Saw VI
11) Psycho II
12) The Stepfather (Original obviously. Remake was awful)
13) The Poughkeepsie Tapes - Yep, go ahead and give me shit. I thought it was cool
14) Scream
15) Deadgirl

I'm sure I've forgotten some.

The original is slightly better, but Let Me In is about as good as a remake can get. My only beef is that the music is a little over-dramatic.

I am so glad to see someone mention this. This movie was overlooked so much, but its by far one of, if not, my favorite in the Halloween series.

I think 5 is overlooked. That little girl was a good actress imo and gave the movie much tension.

Session 9

I watched this recently and it was fucking great! The only thing I would say wrong with it is that it it unappealing. It has a dull cast and boring locations so it would draw away many. But damn is it one intense film.

Tonight I watched Hobo With a Shotgun and George A. Romero's Deadtime Stories Vol. 1.

Hobo With a Shotgun is an excellent homage to old school grindhouse, vigilante justice films. Lots of over-the-top gore and violence. Rutger Hauer is great in his role as the hero, and the film's primary antagonist does a pretty decent job in a role that is clearly inspired by some of Dennis Hopper's classic characters. Do yourself a favor an watch this movie ASAP! :party:

Deadtime Stories, on the other hand, is a very disappointing anthology film. George Romero actually has virtually no involvement here aside from introducing the stories, and it's obvious that this was arranged just so that they could slap his name on it. Despite a couple of cool story ideas, they ultimately fall far short of their potential. I would not recommend this film to anyone.

THIS. The french are quickly becoming the masters of horror; Martyrs, Inside, Them, High Tension, The Horde, Frontier(s), Irreversible( more of a drama, but a real mindfuck), Sheitan, In My Skin(was eating while watching; BIG mistake).

Other films foreign and local; REC & REC 2, The Descent, Session 9, Texax Chainsaw Massacre(1974), Evil Dead Series , Insidious, The Vanishing (Spoorloos, f@#$ the remake), Jacobs Ladder , 28 Days Later , The Human Centipede.

It bothers me how people put down the ending; that it ruined the movie and was a last minute idea. The first time I saw it the ending really tripped me out and in the end, I found it to be more effective than a typical slasher movie ending, in which we find that the killer has magically survived in the last frame of the movie.
