I loved the cheesy horror series like
sleep away camp
Phantasm
Hellraiser
Or really gory like
Hostel
Canibal holocaust
Murder set pieces
Indie horror is good too

Carmela Hayslett's pretty new to the scene. I haven't watched nearly enough newer horror in the last few years as I usually do.

Some nice choices in there... I'm a lot less inclined towards gore as I was when I was younger, but I still love it. ;)

I have mad mad love for two different styles of horror. Cheesy funny horror, and scary nightmare fuel horror. I also love love love practical effects and hate CGI. So here's my 2 top 5s.

Funny top 5:
1. Re-Animator & Bride of Re-Animator
2. Return of the Living Dead
3. Brain Damage
4. Evil Dead 1, 2, & Army of Darkness
5. Phantom of the Paradise & Rocky Horror Picture Show (what? I like musicals)

Honorable Mentions: Flesh for Frankenstein, Sleepaway Camp, Brain Dead/Dead Alive, Cemetery Man, The Convent, Basket Case 1, 2 & 3, From Beyond, Dead & Breakfast, Near Dark, and many others. My DVD and VHS collection of these types of movies is INSANE.

Scary Top 5:
1. Eraserhead (I cannot watch this alone anymore, the first time I did and I think it broke me as a human. I was only, like, 14, and I'm pretty sure it was a dark and stormy night, too. I blame this movie for my baby phobia)
2. Psycho (original gives me chills every time)
3. Hellraiser (pinhead visits my dreams to this day)
4. Suspiria (I believe in witches)
5. The Birds (Fuck birds)

Honorable Mentions: It, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Shining, Poltergeist, 28 Days Later, Suicide Club.

Best practical effects: The Thing, American Werewolf in London, Scanners, Black Sheep, The Fly, Alien(s), and a bunch I already listed like Hellraiser and From Beyond.

You're a lot more of a horror fan that I would have thought, some really nice choices in there. Many points for this... ;)

Skywalker wrote:I was about 5 when I saw my first horror movie (parents had HBO back in the day). So I have been well versed in horror movies up until about 2010, when the person I watched them with kinda died on me .. it is scary to watch them by yourself and everyone else in our house hates horror movies. They were a thing that me and The Old Man loved (that and debating).

1. Amityville Horror (1979) - The remake was not that bad.
2. Poltergeist (the old one, not the 2015 remake). [Infact, just include the others in there]
3. Nightmare on Elm Street (and all the others connected to it.. minus a few bad ones).
4. Pet Sematary (1989)
5. Bram Stoker's Dracula

There are others films that I have seen, but I can not remember the names of them. I am sure that they will come to me as I try and remember them.. when it is not dark outside..

I have added a few to my watch list ^_^ that is.. if I can stand to watch them by myself.


omg i forgot Pet Sematary was really quite freaky!...i gotta admit it might be my favorite King film adaptation. it was pretty faithful to the book, and they made the kid even scarier than i imagined him when i was reading it. not to mention, they pulled off some of those great classic "jump" scares that i rarely fall for. and they did the ankle thing. yup, everyone remembers the ankle thing from this movie, if anything. and that makes it win. :D

and i still rewatch that version of Dracula. Gary Oldman was amaaaaaazing in that. i could do without Keanu (should that be a t-shirt?) but otherwise it was pulpy and delicious. i consider it a classic for sure.

Good Question. Here is my current list but it changes based on my mood

5. Human Centipede - all
4. The ABC's of Death - all
3. The Shrine
2. Afflicted
1. Nightmare on Elm Street - all


Very general... my favourite horror movie is any horror movie really... can't get enough... Honourable mentions go out to Marilyn Manson's Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll and all of Rob Zombie's movies

I don't much care about the World War Z sequel, but I was kind of looking forward to the Friday the 13th reboot. It sounded interesting at least, going back to the 1970s... Now both movies are off of Paramounts schedule for this year.

NaranjaRa wrote:time to tackle this one!
as usual, i need to bust out my faves, then narrow down after additional reflection :)
in no particular order:

The Exorcist
Poltergeist
Cabin in the Woods
The Thing (Carpenter version)
Let the Right One In
Dawn of the Dead (original version)
The Fly
Eyes Wide Shut (hey....to me this story is definite horror!)
The Shining
Silence of the Lambs
Insidious
Hellraiser
The Others
28 Days Later
Jaws
The Mist
The Descent
American Werewolf in London


//phew!...to return!


ok i'll work on my list :D

so far i can weed a bunch out....but i'll definitely be keeping:

* The Exorcist - no matter how many times i watch it, it continues to scare the crap outta me
* Poltergeist - this gave me serious nightmares as a kid, and for a long time afterward. now when i see it, it touches me so much i cry. it's one of those "perfect" horror movies to me.
* Cabin in the Woods - this turned the entire genre upside down. it's just brilliant.
* The Thing (Carpenter version) - i love the effects i grew up with. and this is a masterpiece.
* Dawn of the Dead (original version) - classic zombie masterpiece and comment on society all in one.
* The Shining - who cares whether or not King likes it. Kubrick knows what he's doing. nuff said.
* The Others - turned the ghost story genre around...but in a smarter way than the Sixth Sense did
* Silence of the Lambs - the whole Hannibal Lector story fascinates me. anyone who eats people freaks the shiz out of me. o_O
* The Descent - pure messed-up heart-pounding scare-fest that does not hold back
* American Werewolf in London - perfect blend of dark humor and horror, as well as at the time what was considered groundbreaking effects work

k, that's down to 10!

THIS IS SOOOO HARDDDDD :lol:

i never finished my list!
annnd i was just reminded about Daybreakers, and how awesome it is...definitely sits high on my top 5 favorite vampire movies of all time.

so i think as it stands, the ones that i seem to return to again and again, often with cravings to rewatch them are:

* The Exorcist
* Poltergeist
* The Thing (Carpenter version)
* Dawn of the Dead (original version)
* The Descent

Honorable Mention:
Silence of the Lambs

Posted on John Carpenters Facebook; They are rebooting Halloween, again.

https://www.facebook.com/directorjohnca ... 58/?type=3

So you say you want a Revolution?
You want to shake things up and bring back Halloween and make it rock again?

Well so do I.

So here’s the announcement you’ve all been waiting for:

David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are joining the project to complete the creative team. David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct. I will continue in my executive producer role to consult and offer my advice and feedback as needed.

David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and…WOW. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away.

I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool.

And you’ll get to see it in theaters on October 19th, 2018.

Maaaaaan, sometimes living away from your home country can suck. Example: John Carpenter recently played a concert in my home city of Liverpool and followed it up with a separate Q&A for a few hours. Missing that killed me, The chance to watch John Carpenter playing his own movie themes live!?!?! Maaaaan.

This thread just got me thinking that I haven't been to see a horror film at the cinema since Sam Raimi's 'Drag Me to Hell' - which I loved to bits. It's a shame really but I feel as though so many of the best horror ideas have been used up. I'd love to see something cool, original and scary like Event Horizon come around again. Sunshine was a good sci-fi horror but the last film that actually made me feel tense was 'The Babadook', which was truly excellent. And that was a couple of years ago.

Not really any point to this but I suppose it's worth asking if there's anything I've missed which might've been good?
