I don't really watch horror films, but my favourites would probably be 28 Days Later and Signs because I thought they were original.

I like horror film spoofs like Scary Movie 3 and Shaun Of The Dead though, which I thought were both hilarious.

Evil Dead 2, or Army of Darkness.

'Hail to the king'

Shaun of the Dead was cool too.

One movie that really freaked me out when I was really little wasn't a horror movie, but the bad guy in it scared the crap out of me for some reason: "Rock-A-Doodle."

What about just plain Scary Movie. That was funny and made me feel better about horror films. Can't wait for the 4th one.

Waht about Lifeforce?  It's got naked vampires from space, and while that may not beat vampire lesbians, it's at least on par.

1.Freaks 1932
2.Bride of Frankenstein 1935
3.Teenagers from Outer Space 1959 (The Best B-movie ever)
4. The Shining 1980
5. Evil Dead 2 1987

Candyman.

Looking in mirrors at night was abit different after seeing that movie.
I think the music was pretty cool too, I could do with a sample of that as it goes....

I had a fucking hard time finding that film - ended up finding it at the bottom of a $2 VHS Bargain Bin a few years ago.

Thanks Pal,
"Freaks" is a great movie that I'd always heard about. It was banned for years and I picked it up on Laserdisc (Before DVDs) about 7 years ago.
If you love great B-movies with amazingly bad (good) dialouge, I strongly recommend these these 3 Movies as starters.
"The Monster That Challenged The World"
"Teenagers From Outer Space"
"The Killer Shrews"
They are all out on DVD, unfortunately "Freaks" is not.

I'm not much a DVD fan, but thanks for the suggestions. I've seen 'Teenagers from Outer Space' years ago, but I really never got into it.

Also, 'Freaks' is on DVD - though you'd have to trawl eBay for it. Its most likely an bootlegged copy or an obscure Asian import.

Also, there are a good amount of people here who are also into "B-Movies" - so you'll most definately find someone to talk trash films.

'Freaks' was the movie about sideshow freaks, right? And at the end the woman was turned into a retarded chicken-thing?

According to this, Freaks will be released on R1 in August. Good to see this film getting such good DVD treatment.

ahhh yes, "The Children"...I'd probably laugh my ass off if I saw it today, but it creeped me out years back!

there's WAYYY too many horror movies to mention, so I'll just go with the most recent I enjoyed: "Frailty". Caught it the other night on HBO, around 2AM or so. In some ways, the movie's premise might be too close to home (for some) to be considered a true horror film, but it was powerful, creepy stuff nonetheless.

Watch it again perhaps. See it late at night... alone. Sometimes you're too young to really "understand" the emotions the characters go through. When I was 14 I only cared about horror movies that had alot of gore in them. I remember watching the Excorsist for the first time and it did nothing for me. The second time it really spooked me out.


Other than The Excorsist I like horror flicks such as:

The Shining
Evil Dead 2
Army of Darkness
Dellamorte Dellamore
The Thing
Texas Chainsaw Massacre(old)
Braindead
Dawn Of The Dead
Voodo 2 (zombii, zombie flesh eaters or whatever)

I never really viewed Jurassic Park as a horror movie. Or for that matter, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the Wizard of Oz. And to be brutally honest, Jaws, the Ring, and Black Christmas weren't scary, therefore suck as horror movies. Overall though, it's okay.

I haven't seen enough horror movies to make a list. But I love American Werewolf in London and American Werewolf in Paris. My favorite scary movie though is Scream. I am obssesed with it. I'm just a little disappointed that they killed Randy in the second one. I liked him. 

I have seen the Sixth Sense. I don't see what is scary about it though. The only thing that freaked me out was the blood.

The Birds, freaky.

Chuckie (Child's Play and/or the new ones) scary.

Exorcist, I've only seen 5 minutes and I'm scared to death.

Suspiria, freaked out. I've only seen a few scenes but I am really afraid of stained glass windows or ceilings now.

I don't consider Scary Movies 1-3 scary. I love them but I don't call them horror films. Pet Sematary was scary too.

Guess what Boingo2000, it was. I think either Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th was number 13. I think the grossest one was number 70-something. It was the bloody head that had his body but wasn't attached. And he had sex with this totally nude woman. Horror pronography is scariest above all! Duel looked interesting too.

I watched the Bravo's list of 100 horror movie moments, and I can say most of the movies on there deserve to be on there... however Bravo sucks, and Jaws winning the 1 spot is complete and utter bullshit.  Alien is pretty freaking scary and definitely ranks up there.

Acctually, as a little kid, the tunnel seen in "Willy Wonka" scared the crap out of me, allthough I've never minded the flying monkys.
Of couse, the best(only) horror movie with Gene Wilder is "Young Frankenstein."  big grin
