Best Horror movie

Postby Nummygrrl on Thu Aug 23, 2001 12:22 am

Spooky movies I saw when I was little (I'm talkin' like... 6 years old) that scared the piss outta me:<P>Poltergeist
The Thing
American Werewolf in London<P>Spooky movies I saw when I was a little older (12/13/14yrs) that scared the piss outta me:<P>Rosemary's Baby (right on, Tony)
Gremlins (I used to go into my room every night after I saw that and turn ALL the lights on and do a sweep before bed)
Mommy Dearest (this wasn't actually a horror movie, but a realistic portrayal of a famous actress whose name I forget right now and her relationship with her abusive mother)<P>Spooky movies I've seen in the last few years that instill fear or general uneasiness:<P>Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Night of the Living Dead (the original...)
Blair Witch Project (Danielle and I saw it at night, in the dark, and were totally into it. Scared me, cuz I've been in a very similar situation and I could remember the fear I felt at the time.)<P>And yes... I am a dork, but the first (if they've made sequels, heh) I Know What You Did Last Summer freaked me out. <P>
I was gonna put down Seven, but it never like... Creeped me out. I think of movies like that and The Cell and Strangeland as more of like... Psychological thrillers. Like, artistic movies you have to think about and that are more for shock value than anything else. I kind of see The Shining that way too. At times they make me uncomfortable, but they don't instill fear in me. <P>I think THE best one for that (for me) is Night of the Living Dead. Any movie where there's some supernatural force that can't be stopped and that keeps chasing you. At some point, you're gonna run out of places to hide and the thing's gonna catch up and you're gonna get it. Zombies. Ugh. Creeps me out.

It was put on hold because of Jason X, and Jason X has been finished for well over a year now. It was supposed to come out in the fall of last year, they pushed it back, then Spring of this year, pushed back to the fall, then pushed back again. Who knows when it will come out. But from what I've read of the film it does take place in the far future and it also takes place in space. A negative zone for slasher pics (Leprechaun, Hellraiser both fell victim to this shit). However, the had a vew test screenings of the finished film last spring to people who didn't even know what film they were going to see, and they said it was very well done. It seems that after all these years of making pointless slasher flick after pointless slasher flick (which are still pretty fun to watch knowing that everyone that Jason cuts up reminds you of someone you know in real life) have found their core audience: people like me. Heh. If you like the slasher thing, from what I've read, you'll like Jason X. It's something of a 90 minute hardcore wrestling match between Jason and the crew of some spacethingy.<P>The figure of Jason X in this years Movie Maniacs from McFarlane Toys was also pushed back, another sculpt of Freddy is taking his place.<P>Oh, and Fright Night fucking ruled. Corny, but ruled. AND, there was a Preacher cover with Cassidy on it where Glenn Fabry (knowingly or not) painted him exactly the way that Bruster's friend looks after he becomes a vampire in Fright Night. heh. =x<p>[This message has been edited by MadPowerBomber (edited 09-06-2001).]

A classic is "Braindead" I think it's called "dead alive" in the US though.
It's a fucken classic gore flick, not scary, gory, my favourite sub-genre of horror.
Go out of your way to see it.<P>Evil Dead is cool, but the ending was ruined with the beginning of ED2, and I love Army of Darkness, but unfortunately the Special Edition 2 disc DVD is no longer available, now that I have a region free DVD player. Bugger.<P>Eraserhead freaked the christ out of me. That fucken baby's crying, yikes.<P>Yes Blair Witch scared me, I remember being home alone (like Macauly Culkin, hehehe) and hearing noises and shit, so I put my walkman up real loud and convinced myself it was a movie, my family were home for 15 terrifying minutes before I realised because my walkman was up so loud. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>Texas Chainsaw massacre SUCKED ASS!<P>------------------

YEAHHHH!!!! Brain Dead was a GREAT movie!
Of course, the U.S. version of it, "Dead Alive", is edited heavily. There are some gore parts in it, but all the best scenes have been cut out(the lawnmower massacre, and even the part in the prologue where they cut the guy's hand off!).
It was still a funny movie though!<P>Also, for anyone who can find the stupid thing, I heard "The Uncanny" was a good movie.
And a little known fact: The black guy who played Peter from the movie "Dawn of the Dead" is the dad on the Nickelodeon show "Kenan and Kel". I just can never watch that show in the same way again.

Alien<P>Although I don't think this is classified as a "horror movie," it still scared the hell outta me.<P>Halloween comes in a close second. However, since I've grown up, horror movies don't appeal to me much anymore.<P>------------------

Blair Witch wasn't scary. At all. Maybe the fact that I read an article in the newspaper about how it was fake a couple days before the movie ruined it, I dunno. The only good thing about it was when everyone was getting drunk.

One of the best, too. Ridley Scott is the man. Along those same lines, I'd call Pitch Black a horror movie, too. That was a damn good piece of film. What about Hitchcock? The Birds was pretty goddamn creepy. Anyone ever see Pirahna? They used to show it like, every weekend during the afternoon on one of the local channels here. Probably one of the first horror movies I ever saw, and it freaked me the fuck out. Shit like that and Jaws and The Birds scares me most of all, because the monsters are pretty much real.<P>Oh yeah, mad props to Tremors. Yeeeah, boyeee. That's the shit right there!<P><P>------------------
