    Favourite horror in no particular order:Exorcist,Friday the13th{first one},Nightmare on elm street{first one},Halloween,I know what you did last summer{as corny as it is I still like watching it}Resident evil,Long time dead{surprised me}Thirteenth ghost,What lies beneath,and finally the last installment of the friday the13th series" Jason X".I must confess even though I'm 39yrs old I've always been a sucker for those Teenage slasher movies, I guess it's my way of refusing to come to terms with the fact that I'm getting old or maybe not!!!!!smoke:

    My favourites are the Scream Trilogy (although No3 was nowhere near as good as the first two).

    Also liked IKWYDLS. Or as it is more commonly known 'I Know What your cleavage did last summer'

    The Exorcist is still my favourite. I think Session 9 is a very VERY under-rated creepy, human horror.

    Right just had a quick think and these are mine:

    Dracula (the Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee one).
    The Devil Rides Out
    And a load of other Hammer films.
    Hellraiser
    Lord Of Illusions.
    Psycho
    Runestone
    There is a lot that are cross over such as Alien, Quatermass series of films
    Also there is a lot of the Universal Monster films I enjoyed immensely yet would not class them as favourites.
    Oh and activservo I also have enjoyed some of the Friday The 13th films especially the 7th, just love most female telekinetics/telepaths.:D

    The Shining (was on last night, and still the greatest. The first proper horror film I voluntarily watched)
    Ring (original)
    Dark Water
    Dawn of the Dead
    The Eye
    The Thing
    Polterguiest
    Evil Dead 2
    The Exorcist
    From Dusk Till Dawn

    Should also give honourable mentions to...

    In the Mouth of Madness, The Fog, Halloween, Scream, Dog Soldiers, Blair Witch Project, What Lies Beneath, Kairo, Braindead.

    Also...

    Candyman and It. The first horror films I ever saw, and they scared the absolute pants off me for weeks (Candyman especially) :)

    My list. In varying degrees of actually being scary, but in my opinion, all good horror films.


    Since I'm on a roll and in the office with a few games round me...

    Silent Hill 2 (I pray for the day when David Fincher, Darren Aronofsky or Mark Romanek make this into a film)

    Clive Barker's Undying (it's got Clive Barker, with a story idea from Steven Spielberg. Why isn't this being made into a film right now?!)

    The Evil Dead....

    And can somebody please explain to me why everybody on this forum seems to prefer the second movie over the first? I'd love to hear!

    (The Wicker Man)

    Forgot about that. You can't really compare it to any other film. It's completely unique.

    Hi,

    Here are some of my faves, in no preferential order:

    The Ring (Hideo Nakata's original Japanese version)
    Profondo Rosso (Argento)
    Suspiria (Argento)
    An American Werewolf In London
    In The Mouth Of Madness
    Hellraiser / Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 / Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth
    Perfect Blue (Japanese anime movie. Not technically a horror flick, but creepy as hell!)
    Poltergeist (The scene where the steak crawls over the counter is superb!)
    Braindead (Peter Jackson)
    The Beyond (Lucio Fulci)
    Dawn Of The Dead: Director's Cut (George Romero)
    Judge (Japanese anime short)
    Cannibal Holocaust
    Opera (Dario Argento)
    Manhunter (Michael Mann)
    Urotsukidoji: Legend Of The Overfiend (The original 5-part series.)

    There are probably a ton of others that I could mention, but these are the only ones that spring to mind.

    Pooch

    What about Inferno Pooch although I would not include it in mine I did enjoy it more than Susperia. And it knocked me sideways when the plot took its other direction a quarter of the way through (if you know what I mean).;)

    Through some of the films mentioned and there are a few I'd forgotten about i.e Candyman ,Evil Dead,Hellraiser,IT ,all very good films. Another Stephen King film which I saw not that long ago "Rose Red" that was also a good film and pretty scary if my memory serves well.One film that was mentioned and sounds good was "Wickerman",I've never seen this so I 'll try and get hold of a copy.Wasn't there a film called "House" I have vague memorys of it been pretty gruesome, if someone can refresh my memory I'd appreciate it !!PEACE!!!:smoke:

    I just reckon its more refined, with a great balance between horror and humour, with a ton of classic moments. I also saw the sequel first, with no idea what to expect. Fantastic suprise.

    I actually turned off Evil Dead half way through the first time I watched it. Not because I didn't like the film, just the constant high pitched evil cackaling and elongated demon death screams really really really got on my nerves, and still do (Still got it on DVD though)

    I found BWP very disturbing when I first saw it. Jacob's Ladder is a superb film.

    The first VHS I ever saw was an American Werewolf in London a few scenes scared the pants off me.

    A few off the top of my head: (in no particular order)

    Re-Animator
    Bride of Frankenstein
    Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
    Halloween I and II
    The Changeling (first movie to ever scare the hell out of me)
    Puppet Master (goofy, but you gotta love those toys)
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    Dawn of the Dead
    The Birds
    Nightbreed

    House rocked! It was about a Vietnam vet who retired to his aunt's (or was it grandmother?) house to write a novel, and the ghost of one of his old platoon buddies comes back, along with a ton of creepy stuff. Horror comedy is extremely difficult, and this movie managed to pull it off. House II wasn't too bad either.

    I thought that Evil Dead 2 completely abused the original and effective directing style of the first. Plus is went a bit haywire at the end. It also destroys all the logic of the first film. I mean I don't think it's a bad film, but I think it isn't quite in tandem with the first. I also loved the way that Bruce Campbell started off as a geek in the first film & didn't progress to the zombie slaying "ASH" (as we know him) until everybody around him was killed.

    Well enough of my ranting.

    You should listen to the commentary on Evil Dead II - Bruce Campbell & Sam Raimi (& someone else?). One of the best (most entertaining) commentaries I've listened to - BC says he's always reckoned that ED II is not a remake, it's a sequel as Ash is so dumb that he's forgotten all about his earlier trials at the cabin hence his return there.

    My favourite horror - "Night of the Living Dead", not the original one, I prefer the 70s remake with her from Babylon 5 in the lead role.
