:eek: I thought the Fog was on of the worst I had ever watched.I am not a big horror movie fan personally but I like Jason they were pretty cool.I liked Jason vs Freddy too.

I'm honestly not a big horror guy. I like dramas, comedies, documentaries better, but I can come up with 10 that are quite good:

Halloween
A Nightmare on Elm Street
The Sixth Sense
Psycho
Freaks
Rosemary's Baby
The Silence of the Lambs
28 Days Later
Aliens
Identity

I never cared for the Friday the 13th franchise; I've seen a half dozen or so of the films. Nightmare on Elm Street had a couple good sequels, including the underrated New Nightmare. Sometimes A Clockwork Orange is classified as a horror for some reason. If you include it as an option, it's my new #1. I also enjoyed the recent Shaun of the Dead, but view it as more of a comedy, like Dead Alive (Braindead), rather than a horror film.

That's a good list.Especially freaks!What a classic!I also enjoyed Shaun of the dead.It was funny as hell,and had good special effects.I love the part when they notice the first zombie in their backyard,and they think she's drunk.So they just laugh their asses off at her.

New Nightmare is the only movie I remember really scaring me. I enjoyed most of the Halloweens. Friday the 13th movies are mostly comedy to me, just good movies if you feel like watching some heads chopped off and what not. I havent seen a good horror film in a while. A lot of people reccomended The Hills Have Eyes to me, however I didnt like it much. I actually like the newer Texas Chainsaw Massacre a lot.

The New Nightmare was actually a very good twist on the Nightmare On Elm Street series and breathed a bit of life into the, by then, dead franchise. I've always liked the Nightmare on Elm Street movies and the Friday The 13th movies.
There was a creepy movie that I saw as a kid, The Sentinel, that scared the crap out of me as a kid, probably wouldn't hold up as well if I saw it now. Freaks is a classic. The Hills Have Eyes was creepy.
I also liked the Phantasm series. The second was the best. Sometimes they were a bit hokey but the Tall Man was a great horror movie villain.

Kubrick was wise to change things, he made an above average horror story into the greatest haunted house movie of all time. all of kubrick's films are pure greatness, and yes, i've seen them all

Its not a monster flick.
Its an old british horror film about a detective who is investigating a missing girl in a small village who are pagans.

He suspects they have sacrificed her to their gods, but they deny that. Just google it.
There is a remake coming out soon which im sure is as **** as all the other remakes.

Here's my list in no particular order
1. Nightmare on Elm Street (the original)
2. The Entity (classic tale of a violent ghost)
3. The Exorcist (the greatest horror film of all time)
4. When a Stranger Calls (first 20 minutes are the most suspenseful in any horror/mystery film)
5. Halloween (love the music)
6. Amityville Horror (the original)
7. The Omen
8. Evil Dead (Mass Pride I'm disappointed you left this off your list)
9. Blair Witch Project (I know I'll get **** for it, but the first time I saw it I thought it was supposedly real)
10. The Sixth Sense (great story- very clever)
Honorable mentions go out to: Friday the 13th, Candyman, It, Hellraiser, and The Shining.

I watched scream when it first came out...i was like 12 or something. the ghostface costume freaked me out cuz i was home alone.

high tension probably had the most gruesome deaths ive ever seen. it was cliche at the end...but the brutal death scenes pretty much sealed it for me.

my 21 year old roommate ran into my room with fright while watching the first half of event horizon. funniest **** ever watching a grown ass man act like a little *****.

the last george romero land of the dead was better than i expected. the one with dennis hopper and john leguizamo.

Ok here is my list

1. The Shining ("Heeeeeeere's Johnny") Best scene ever in any horror flick
2. Alien (watching that little vicious alien burst through the guys stomach was awesome)
3. Halloween (The first time Michael Myers sat up when you thought he was dead I almost ****)
4. Silence of the Lambs ("I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti") Hannibal Lecter, what a character
5. Jaws (Kept an entire generation from going in the ocean)
6. Hellraiser I and II(Two of the few movies that I actually found scary)
7. Misery (Nothing like a proverbial psycho ***** to give you goose bumps)
8. An American Werewolf in London (Not sure if this even qualifies as a horror movie but it was a great flick. Loved the transformation scene)
9. Carrie (Classic early Travolta and Sissy Spacek, Oh the hells of high school)
10. The Sixth Sense (Again not sure if this qualifies but it was a great psychological thiller.)

the last george romero land of the dead was better than i expected. the one with dennis hopper and john leguizamo.

Ok here is my list

1. The Shining ("Heeeeeeere's Johnny") Best scene ever in any horror flick
2. Alien (watching that little vicious alien burst through the guys stomach was awesome)
3. Halloween (The first time Michael Myers sat up when you thought he was dead I almost ****)
4. Silence of the Lambs ("I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti") Hannibal Lecter, what a character
5. Jaws (Kept an entire generation from going in the ocean)
6. Hellraiser I and II(Two of the few movies that I actually found scary)
7. Misery (Nothing like a proverbial psycho ***** to give you goose bumps)
8. An American Werewolf in London (Not sure if this even qualifies as a horror movie but it was a great flick. Loved the transformation scene)
9. Carrie (Classic early Travolta and Sissy Spacek, Oh the hells of high school)
10. The Sixth Sense (Again not sure if this qualifies but it was a great psychological thiller.)


The ending to Carrie is still amazing. What a way to make an exit. Great film.
Ive never thought of Jaws as a horror movie. I guess it is. I watched it so many times as a kid. I became obsessed with sharks.

Yea, i guess so. But its a bizarre mysterious film. It doesnt just hand u the story. U never really know wtf is going on.

And wen u realise wat happened, it is quite disturbing.


SPOILER:
Mother hangs herself in the closet, one of her daughters discovers her, but the closet falls ontop of her, trapping her in there with her dead mother, she tries to get out but cant and dies. Her sister doesnt hear her and racked with guilt goes insane, and is commited to a mental hospital. She believes that her sister is still alive, and her dad has a new girlfriend whom she hates. But in fact there is no new girlfriend, she is actually sleeping with her dad, and cannot come to terms with her sisters death.

But i only understood that after the second viewing.

1.The Shining (One of my favorite movies ever, not just favorite horror. This movie is not scary to me now--though I was scared ****less by it as a 13 year old kid. The thing that makes me appreciate the movie so much more is the fact that I've read the book and have gotten a full understanding of what the story is about. Excellent book by Stephen King until the horrid ending.)

2.The Changeling (The Changeling is my 4th favorite movie of all time behind Requiem for a dream, American Movie, and The Killer. The story is amazing and captavating.)

3.The Omen (I actually find the 2nd one to be scarier. The weird thing about this film is that my nephew, 1 years old, has almost the exact same smile as the little boy had at the end of the movie. Very disturbing movie. In my opinion, the scene where the Damien's mother is in the hospital and turns around and sees MS. Blaylock standing there with one of the most evil faces you'll ever see, is one of the most classic scenes in horror.)

4.Halloween (I love this movie for the build up and the acting by Jamie Lee Curtis. Mike still scares me.)

5.Saw(Very disturbing. Most disturbing horror movie that I've ever seen. I still haven't watched the 2nd one because I was so put off by the first.)

6.Amityville Horror (This movie game me psychological problems for months when I watched it as a 17 year old. I've just read the book about a couple of months ago, and I'll say this, it's probably the scariest experience that I've ever had.)

7.Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Classic tale of kids lost in a deserted area. Fun movie, but in no way scary.)

8.Alien (I saw this when I was 5 and I was scared to sleep. I had nightmares from this every night for about 2 weeks straight.)

9.Damien: Omen 2 (What I like about this movie more than the first one is that Damien is older. It makes the horror of the anti christ that much more frightening. The ice skating death scene is one of the creepiest in horror.)

10.Halloween Ressurection (fun horror flick. Not scary at all, though. Busta Rhymes gave me a lot of laughs in this. lol at how he whups Mike's ass and then says, "I hope you never rest in peace.")

Mass, if that's the case then I'm definetly never watching Saw 2.

Here's why I find Saw so disturbing: To me, a death is a death, but it's the way that you're put to suffer that makes it worse. It's not just some average torture **** that's in that movie, it's some stuff that gets into your mind and makes you shudder.
It's the whole feeling of panic and the way that he tortures them psychologically that gets me. I was really repulsed by the reverse jaw trap and the barbwire scene.


A while back I was watching an episode of Forensic Files where this black guy, serial killer, used to build sex rooms and torture rooms where he'd take his victims, play with them, and then eat their body. It was so disgusting. That's what Saw reminds me of. Jigsaw got under my skin. The ending when he shut the door on the dark haired guy was really disturbing. Imagine that guy still laying there in the dark in chains.

Yup. From Amazon, "The role of Zelda, Rachael's dying sister, was played by a man. The role called for her to look emaciated, and apparently there were no women skinny enough.
7 cats were used to play the part of 'Church.'

The picture at Rachel's parents' house is a painting of Zelda as a child, before her spinal meningitis. Gage is later seen wearing a similar outfit (as well as having her red hair) to signify that Zelda has come back through him, which was Rachel's deepest fear."
