Best Horror movie

Postby Violentmae on Mon Aug 13, 2001 1:24 am

Not much of a Horror movie fan. Haven't seen many of the famouse ones, cause I am a pussy. But two that scare the shit out of me, probably because I saw them when I was very young and impressionable and thought my house was haunted with weird voices and shite, are The Haunting (original of course) and Amytiville Horror, I can't remember which one but the one with the floating red eyes in the commercial they filmed on the front porch of the haunted house. Oh and the Exorcist, saw it when it was rereleased and I couldn't sleep that night, I am a HUGE pussy when it comes to these things. Oh Hotel Hell is great fun and scary <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">.

John Carpenter's The Thing, no doubt. Best. Horror. Movie. Ever. Though, The Shining was a pretty damn good flick.<P>"no beer and no t.v. make homer...something something."<P><P>------------------

I think a lot of the B-movies are good. Mostly, because they are just really funny to watch. Like "Jack Frost"(and 2...THEY KILL HIM WITH A BANANA...A _BANANA_!!!!), "Spiders", and "Dan Rather Has Sex With Everything".
The "Evil Dead" trilogy WAS great. Note how they gradually go from "scary, gorey, and boobies" to comedy in each movie.
"The Last Man on Earth", with Vincent Price was a good movie. I also liked the "Night of the Living Dead" trilogy. You can't get closer to reality than zombies! If ya wanna see some great gore effects, check "Dawn of the Dead" and "Day of the Dead" out. The endings are just great. The best part is when they tear this guy's head off and he's still screaming, and his voice gets higher and higher as his voice box is stretched apart. IIIIII love it!
Oh yeah. Not exactly horror, but horror comedy: "Monster High"
Now THAT was a good movie. I also think the Puppet Master movies were good, except "Curse of the Puppet Master"; which displays the ending credit with "SFX Proudly Made With a Mac OS". Which is a lie, because I haven't seen cheesier special effects since "The Man in the Moon". It thundered all the time, but there was never any rain. EVERY NIGHT. The day was always dry and sunny; but the night was always a thunderstorm. Anyway! That "Hotel" or "Motel" movie was about the cannibal hillbillies right? That was an okay movie too! Ohhh...I think I wrote too much. Well, it's Flurb's fault for starting this topic. Horror movies are great. Best horror movie ever: "Frankenweenie".<P>

The Thing (the original was pretty neat, too; The Thing From Outer Space, I think) and Alien are both excellent choices, and I damn well think they count as horror movies. I mean, if one doesn't, then the other can't, either.<P>I don't know, but I was never a big fan of The Shining <B>or</B> It. I've tried to read both of them on several occasions and just couldn't get into them. The film/TV versions don't hold my attention, either. Ah well. By the way, did anyone see Thinner on TV the other week? I was fairly pleased with it, though I couldn't stand the actor they got to play the guy who was getting thinner. It looked like he was grinning all the time, even when he was crying or pissed off or something. It was nuts.<P>Hey, ElBobo, if you like Last Man on Earth, you should check out "I am Legend," by Richard Matheson. It's the book the movie was based on. Matheson is a horror goddddddd.<P>------------------

John Carpenter's The Thing of course.<P>The 1990 remake of the Night of the Living Dead. Most people consider the original to be a bit more scary/disturbing whathaveyou, but the color one really freaked me out the first time I saw it.<P>Se7en is a pretty wonderful horror film, though most wouldn't consider it one. Silence of the Lambs, too.<P>Uhm. The Exorcist, of course. I'm not really a fan of the film, but I saw the restored version in the theatres last Halloween and it was decently disturbing.<P>Candyman works really well. The first one only, the rest are just shoddy slasher films. The original A Nightmare on Elm Street was decent, the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (and the newer one with Matthew Mcoanananney, or however itspelt, just for its general fuckedupness). An American Werewolf in London. The recent Stir of Echoes and The Sixth Sense were very well done horror films, I thought.<P>There's probably more, some cheesy things here and there. More that aren't considered horror, whatever. I can't pinpoint a favorite, though. =<P>Oh, there's A Perfect Blue (if I remember correctly) that's a psychological horror anime, that was done really well.<P>And that's about it.<P>

The only movie that's ever really scared me, and therefore ranks as my favorite horror movie, is Silence of the Lambs. And believe it or not, it wasn't Lecter that freaked me out. It was Buffalo Bill. Dude wasn't on camera very long, but for the few minutes he was on screen, he completely terrified me. His actions, in particular... he was running around naked, with his dongler tucked between his legs, knife in his hands (best I recall)... not exactly running, it was more jerking and lurching from one place to the next. He was here one minute. He was right beside the chick the next. Creepy fucker.<P>And completely believable.

It's moments like that in movies that scary and disturb me the most, the Buffola Bill thing Munk was refering to. I only watched a few minutes of The Cell, all I had to see was him stringing himself up over that girls dead body and what not and I was sufficiently creeped out and disgusted. But I don't know if that counts, but those things scare me differently then demons and shit. But Seven made me ill when I saw it when it came out, haven't seen it since, I can't watch it, and when I saw Silence of the Lambs I was about 13 or 12 and had to sleep in my mom's bed that night. Movies with serial killers in them scare me the most, because they are more real to me then devils and what not. But is that horror? It just seemed different to me somehow. *shrugs*

IT was a movie made for television. It's not that good. It's got John Ritter starring in it for God's sake. (It also has Jonothan Brandis...Harry Anderson...and a couple of other surprise stars)<P>The only reason to see it is to see a movie-LIKE version of the King story. Of which is very good. Ranks up there with King's best stuff, I think. But the movie is just there, nothing more.<P>As for my opinion, I'd have to side with Quix on The Thing or the Shining...but all that's depending that Aliens doesn't count...cause that's one of my favorite movies ever. Still, I think people put that in the Sci-Fi category before horror. But straight out horror...I'd have to go Shining. Nothing freaked me out like that movie. <P>The Shining's my favorite King book too...which is kinda weird considering the movie version differs a LOT from the book.

Horror movies generally don't scare me but there are two that freaked me out. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Rosemary's Baby (Think I spelled those wrong) which people probably consider more of a suspense movie anyway.
