I'm not a big fan of Horror movies in general. 'Scream' 1 and 2 were ok. But my favourite is 'Alien'... I know I know, not everyone would call it a "horror" movie, or even think of it that way. But it is partly a horror movie, as well as being a Sci-Fi action movie, Maybe the other 3 Alien films aren't horror much at all, much more action, but 'Alien' for a large part is horror, so that's my fave  smile

I'm not into horror films at all. The only film I've ever watched that could be even partially classed as horror is 'The Haunting'. But I've seen it about 5 times now and I dont percieve it to be horror at all. Its not even scary anymore   smile

I've always considered Alien to be a horror movie that takes place on a spaceship, and not a sci-fi movie at all.  The sequels are sci-fi, though.

As far as horror movies go, I prefer the older ones.  In particular, anything by Alfred Hitchcock is good in my book.  More recent horror films, well, to me they just aren't scary.  Usually I find them to be funny.

Ah, that reminds me. This isnt nescessarily a horror movie, but Species and Species 2 were both fantastic films. Better than Alien, not as long, better actors. Better plot too.  big grin

You're talking about the Dutch/French movie, right?  If that's what you're talking about, oh my goodness, this is the scariest movie I've ever seen.  I've seen it over two years ago, and it still gives me nightmares to this day.  No other horror movie I've seen has given me nightmares for years.

Um...I refuse to comment on Species. Haven't seen the sequel, I think it was direct to video.

On a related topic, my dad still refuses to see the movie Alien. It creeped him the hell out when it was released, and he still refuses to watch it, 20 years later.

Alien is a horror movie and a pretty damn good one...  It has the elements of a horror movie nonetheless....  And good ones too.....

I don't watch a lot of horror movies, I prefer psychological thrillers or drama. But my favorite is The Shining.

there was a movie out in the early eighties that i thought was scary, but i can't remember the name of it. there were these kids that would burn you to death with their hands. their fingernails were black. does this ring a bell with anyone? i'd like to know the name.

"Cemetary Man" is completely underrated and awesome. And, although I'm not really afraid of it, I'll put "Dead Alive" on my list.

The TCM remake wasn't half bad... best new scary movie by far is The Ring (if you understand the symbolism),
older than that= Ringu,
older than that=The Shining.
Favorite cheesy horror movie:The Evil Dead Trilogy

Has anyone here seen Dr. Giggles?  I saw it when i was little, now for some reason, i laugh at horror movies, and i actually do think they are funny, So horror movies to me are more like comedies to me..  By the way, If you go i n a movie store, there are alot of cheeze rip offs that are halariously stoopid and never made it o big screen.

John Carpenter does indeed rock.

I like his remake of The Thing - pure paranoid class!
The Last House on the Left is a bit strange but nevertheless a good film.
Alien is a good horror although I still prefer the original edit of the film.
I enjoyed The Ring (the american version - not seen the original)
The Burning was always a good film but I think it had a few other titles as well.

I found Braindead to be more of a black comedy and The Little Shop of Horrors was more a musical.

Ah, the Omen films. I saw the sequel a couple of days ago and it was one of the funniest thing i had ever seen! (Notice Damien simiularity to a glassesless and unscarred Harry Potter.)

Heh... The Ring (us) was somewhat disturbing. The origanal Japanese one loses it's scary factor because the axe-to-the-back-of-the-head 'thwack' sound is one of those overused hollywood sound files you hear constantly... I watch that bit over and over again, it was so funny!

I don't really dig on horror, but I liked Alien, so I'll say that's my favourite horror film... though I enjoy it as a sci-fi film.

(Of course, if you want a more traditional haunted house movie- in space- there's always Event Horizon. Not wonderful, but for some reason, everyone's seen it).

Event Horizon!! Such a cool film, Hellraiser in space in my opinion.
Mentioning that, Hellraiser is pretty good although the third wsn't the best it still had Terry Farrell in it.

But Event Horizon! I gotta get in on DVD but I think I'll have to watch it tonight on VHS (booo....) as its been so long.

BTW, who knew the first Omen was filmed at Guildford cathedral? A town very local to me...

knowing this message board, most peeps probably knew it

I'm not going to give long lists like a few people here, so I'll simply say...
Nightmare on Elm Street
The first 'real' horror movie I ever saw, but after I saw it no horror movie has been able to scare me.   wink I was scared of going to sleep for about three months though...

The Exorcist was a scary one. Scary Movie 1-3 though, seem more funny than scary.
