Re: Saddest horror films

I'd say The Butterfly Effect and Signs. The endings to the both of them get me every time.

Re: Saddest horror films

Pumpkinhead is always my answer for this.

Re: Saddest horror films

Let the Right one in

Re: Saddest horror films

Combat Shock
Schramm
Pumpkinhead
Sella Turcica

Re: Saddest horror films

The Girl Next Door by far for me.

Re: Saddest horror films

The Orphanage
Jacob's Ladder
Let the Right One
Frankenstein (1931)

they all worked for me on an emotional level. This is why it's so important to have well made and relatable characters.

Yeah, that one was heartbreaking.  And knowing it was based on a true story was even sadder.

Re: Saddest horror films

Sella Turcica

according to me .......

Re: Saddest horror films

The Orphanage really got me, as did The Devil's Backbone

Re: Saddest horror films

Oh man, how could I forget The Mist! The infamous ending always shocks and saddens me. Thomas Jane was great in the movie too.

Re: Saddest horror films

Bride of Frankenstein maybe? Maybe just the ending.

Re: Saddest horror films

The scene in Bride of Frankenstein with the blind man is the most touching scene I have witnessed for sure. Such a same it had end so soon. Orphanage and Devils Backbone fo sure. Leatherface seems to a degree a tragic character to me. Girl Next Door fo sure aswell.

Re: Saddest horror films

Oh and Seed of Chucky. I felt bad for Glen, constantly being bullied and not having the best parents. I don't think he deserved any of the crap he got, even if he's just a doll.

Re: Saddest horror films

The opening of Who Can Kill A Child is pretty powerful aswell since its actual footage of children being subjected to cruelty. Provides a perfect context for the rest of the fictitious elements of the film.

Re: Saddest horror films

I feel really sorry for the poor girl of a main antagonist in Bedevilled. One of the best Movies of 2010.

Re: Saddest horror films

The Mist is probably the saddest I've seen

Re: Saddest horror films
