Favorite Horror Movies


I give up. This board is too hard to understand.
in the spirit of Halloween.... what are your favorite horror movies?


The Shining
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Halloween 1 & 2 (the series went down hill after 2)

cheesy flicks....

Event Horizon (more sci fi than horror)
Silent Night, Deadly Night
The Dentist
13 Ghosts
People Under the Stairs
Basket Case
1) Frankenstein
2) Bride Of Frankenstein
3) Son Of Frankenstein
4) The Fall Of The House Of Usher
5) The Masque Of The Red Death
6) Suspiria
7) The Shining
8) Halloween
9) The Haunting
10)The Legend Of Hell House
11)The Blair Witch Project
13)The Omen

I enjoy some of the modern stuff, but as you can see from 1-5, Boris Karloff and Vincent Price are still the supremos of sinister cinema IMO.

The first 20 minutes of "When a Stranger Calls" are the scariest of any movie ever made (imo). The movie is just ok after that, but the beginning make up for it.

I also like the following:

Halloween 1, 2 & 4
The Shining
The Exorcist
Friday the 13th (1-4)
Se7en / Silence of the Lambs (not necessarily horror)
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Original)

Yup, "The Thing" and "Prince of Darkness" were both awesome horror flicks.

Also, the "Exorcist," after all these years, remains the scariest movie I've ever seen (I first saw it when I was eleven years old, in the dark, and still remember the experience!).

Also worth noting is "The Ring" which is the scariest movie that has come out in the last few years. Really great movie.

Others that people have noted are, of course, classics. But I want to suggest that people check out "Hellraiser 1" (the sequels are pretty lousy but the first one rocks) and "Friday 13th part 1" as really excellent horrors.

The original Halloween is still awesome, as is the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The remake was much better than I expected, but still just felt like a cheap scare with special effects and fancy camera work. I would also include Dawn of the Dead, the first Nightmare on Elm Street (before Freddy turned into a comedian right before killing someone), the original Hellraiser, Alien and Alien Resurrection, the Japanese version of The Ring, the first couple of Friday the 13th movies, the original Exorcist, and one of the most underated movies of all time, The Exorcist III.

I can't wait to see Saw...

I'll throw a few other randoms out there that I love...(some horror, some sort of horror)

American Psycho
The Changeling
The Others
Rosemary's Baby
Army of Darkness
Blair Witch Project
The Cell
Child's Play
Lord of Illusions
The Ninth Gate
Brotherhood of the Wolf
Haute Tension
