Re: Favourite Horror Movies

Lets see....

Carrie is probably my fav.
Something about it. Mom is creepy. Carrie is creepy.
Love the fact she killed everyone for treating her like poo.

Nightmare on Elm St part one.
THe creepiest of the Nightmares in my opinion.

The Saw series. Though I think 2 is probably my fav.
Really like the concept of this series.

Frankenstein (1931)
Frankie is the best in the movie. Especially when he throws the little girl in the lake. I laughed out loud.

I really like the Underworld movies.

Halloween original AND Rob Zombies

I guess that's it for now tongue

Re: Favourite Horror Movies

Here's my favourites and my reasonings.

http://www.horror-movies.ca/vasques-top … ror-films/

I would however update it as follows (and a summary for some of why I like them).

1. TCM 74 - The film that started my love for the genre.

2. Day of The Dead 1985  - 2 words - Bub and Rhodes.

3. Black Sabbath (1963) - Mario Bava at his visual, atmospheric and chilling best.

4. The Devils Backbone (2001) - a beautuifull yet profound and often creepy ghost story interwoven against the haunting background of the Spanish Civil War.

5. (Update) Spider Baby (1968) replaces Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde (1931).

6. Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde (1931). Contains a powerhouse of a performance by Fredric Marsch as a convincingly hideous and unrepressed Mr Hyde and repressed and tormented Dr Jeckyll

7. Island of Lost Souls (1932). features a GREAT performance by Charles Laughton and some impressive make up affects for the time to nearly rival Jack Pierce

8. Martyrs (2008)

9. (Update) . The Orphanage - original title El orfanato - (2007) replaces Hobo With A Shotgun

10. Dark Water (2002)

11. Bedevilled (2010)

12. The Black Cat (1934)

13. Who Can Kill A Child (1976)

14. The Evil Dead (1981)

15. Black Christmas (1974)

16. Don't Torture A Duckling (1972)

17. Maniac (1981)

18. The original Corman produced and Joe Dante directed Piranha (1978)

19. Fulci's Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979)

20. The Seasoning House (2012)

21. Aliens (1986)

22. I Saw The Devil (2011)

23. Dread (2009)

24. Hard Candy (2005)

25. Hobo With A Shotgun (2011)

Re: Favourite Horror Movies

^^^
WOW, what an amazing list it is. Very cool ones but Faster Pussycat Kill Kill stands out for me. No need to wonder why. lol

Re: Favourite Horror Movies

I go back and forth between


Here are some other previous lists for ideas:

Re: Favourite Horror Movies

In no particular order:
Dead Alive.
The thing from another planet.
The Thing.
Alien.
The Res. Evil series.
Tokyo Zombie.

Re: Favourite Horror Movies

A few off the top of my head:

Nosferatu (1921) Amazing visuals and a unique creepy atmopshere, Max Schreck is a genius too.

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligair (1920) Like Nosferatu it just has amazing visuals (the expressionist style), creepy atmosphere and a great story. Oh and Conrad Veidt.

Suspiria (1977) Trippy visuals, creepy atmosphere, AMAZING music and an overall top notch story.

The Thing (1982) Great story and acting, great claustrophic atmosphere, excellent music, and the best FX in the game.

The Descent (2005) The only movie I couldn't sit through, first viewing I had to take a break I was getting to claustrophobic. Just great directing.

Night of the Living Dead (1968) The movie that started it all. Great atmosphere, both creepy and claustrophobic, good characters and a shocker of an ending.

Re: Favourite Horror Movies

The Shining -- creepy twins and a big wheel over hardwood
Tale of Two Sisters -- atmosphere and the unsettling gaze of a beautiful korean woman
The Orphanage -- a kid with a bag over his head.  Scary.
The Mist -- filmmakers had the balls to kill the kid at the end
Ringu -- scariest silent video tape i've ever seen
The Others -- made you care about the family, making all the more tragic at the end.
