Its based on stephen king's book that goes by same name. Basicly (if i remember correctly) the plot involved ancient indian burial grounds wich brought back everything that got buried in it or so on. Somebody please add more if you remember the movie better than i do.  smile

I really like slasher flicks, like Texas Chainsaw etc. and the Firday the 13th series, but my favorite horror movie of all time is probably The Shinning.

Said slasher movies just don't have enough sibstance for more than a couple of watches.

Despite I am not normally a fan of horror movies; I would say the Alien series are exceptions. I actually enjoyed it, when I finally made the decision to watch it, but the one I watch is the directors' cut; its 10 minutes longer than the ones they released in the Cinema. My hubby said this edition is much better. It gives a fuller explanation of the Alien story which makes the Alien stories much more complete.

Guy and his family move to a small town on a big highway with big trucks.  Family cat gets run over by one of the big trucks.  Neighbor Fred Gwynne takes guy to oh so spooky Indian burial ground where they bury dead cat.  Dead cat comes back to life.  Later, guy's little boy gets run over by another big truck.  Despite being warned not to by both Fred Gwynne and Pascow the friendly ghost, guy buries little boy in spooky Indian burial ground.  Little boy comes back to life and starts killing people.  Hilarity ensues.

That's alright, I just wanted to know what happened I don't intend to watch it anytime soon. However, I would like to eventually watch Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street, and maybe Friday the 13th once I read all of the movie discriptions.

Dude, what is the deal with PG-13 horror movies?

The Grudge
The Ring
Darkness
Alien vs. Predator
The Sixth Sense
The Village
The Others

these movies suck because you don't see the R rated gore that is makes horror movies cool.  There's another PG-13 movie coming out, Cursed and that movie involves werewolves.  Since it is PG-13, you won't see much blood and gore, so it will suck.  And The Ring Two?  that's about as stupid as the movie Mean Girls.

Horror movies don't need gore to be good. Take The Shining. Even though it was rated R, there wasn't all the much gore in it, and it's one of the greatest horror movies of all time. The Atmosphere is what makes or breaks a horror movie.

*recalls a moment in the Shining when a wave of blood comes flowing through a hallway*

I just had to edit my post and echo the thing on pg-13 movies... Really, horror movies shouldn't be rated pg-13... I mean even if there isn't gore or nudity in it... if it's a real horror movie it should automatically be rated R... Whoever produces these movies should be shot, because they aren't doing their jobs if their movies aren't getting R ratings.

That's kind of different. By blood ane gore I mean like a Friday the 13th or Chucky movie, with it's token naked woman getting killed in the shower scene.

Here here! See I'm FUCKED! Ok, the only movie of this decade that I've seen that was rated R and violent was Scream 3-2000.

Halloween Ressurection was also a violent and R rated movie, but it was the worst out of the series. Laurie died and the rest of the movie does not compete with it's other movies.

See I'm so Goddam sick of these PG-13 movies! I mean the most notible movie in the 90's was Scream. Scream was bloody, violent, and a hell of a lot better than any of these movies I've seen this year.

What happened? WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED! Really? Why did The Village, The Grudge, etc have no blood? Or not enough to fill my appotite?

I mean you know what I love to do when I'm mad, watch the real scary movies. And by real I mean the actually good ones, I'm 12, I can't take too much in at once. I love watching people die horribly. I'm sick I know.

And The Sixth Sense is acceptable to me because, it wasn't suppose to be scary in a gore way. It was a reality bent movie. And it didn't require blood and guts, it was sad sort of.

I can't believe those movies you've listed Fryfan-minus The Sixth Sense- are even aloud to be called "horror, scary, frightening, etc". Hollywood's horror films of this decade SUCK LIKE CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!   up yours

But I love werewolf movies, so I might see it for the hell of my amusment. Also this year, Halloween 9. Not recommending it, but I'll see it anyway because I like Michel Myers.

By the way, I've now watched all of the Halloween movies except Halloween 5. But that's because Blockbuster doesn't have it. Halloween, really good.

Halloween Ressurection, really bad. If I agree with why Michel goes around killing people this time, than something's wrong. I don't blame him, if I had cameras rigged in my house, I'd be pissed too.

I've also seen Friday the 13th and let me say, I don't want an axe through my head!  no no

Hollywood has always only released a few genuinely good horror films a decade.  Nothing   has changed.

In any case, my answer would be "The Shining".  Maybe the only horror film that genuinely scared the shit out of me.

can someone explain the appeal of Argento's films to me? Seriously, 'cuz alot of horror DVD buffs love to swing from the guy's nuts, so I wanna make sure I'm not totally overlooking something when viewing his movies. I've watched a few that some friends recommended...while I was impressed with the visual look Argento was going for (kinda dreamy & comic book-like IMO), the flow & pacing made me scream "Let's GO, already!" Having said that, wasn't Argento involved in the movie about the folks trapped in a theatre full of monsters? That one was pretty cool, in a cheeseball kinda way...

True.  If fact, what most of them need is less gore.  Gore isn't scary, kids.  It's just silly.

Then again, that's how I'd describe most horror movies: not scary, just silly.

The first scary movie I ever saw was "Jaws" back when I was 6.

Scared the crap out of me and it is still my favorite horror movie.

I'm a gulible person, damn psychotic mind, so this "sillness" in horror movies I believe in it. I know! It's stupid but I'm weird. The Birds was really freaky. I cooler with them now but the little voice in my head is warning me that they'll attack.

So far, I've really liked Halloween the best. Especially Halloween 6. I mean Tommy is HOT and the way people die in that movie are so original. And I usually won't say this but, the guy who got his head blown off and up, really deserved it.
