Favorite Horror Movies!
« on: August 13, 2018, 01:12:07 pm »
Hi All,

I thought this might make for a fun topic. List your favorite horror movies from well known to obscure. I think this genre probably has one of the most interesting mixes. Sometimes bad is good! You have your psychological thrillers to gory slasher to ghost stories. I'm always looking for good ones. So I will suggest list your top 10 all time favorite ... and then maybe a few more recent good ones...

Top 10:
The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane (more of a thriller but excellent)
Rosemary's Baby
Let the Right One In (original)
May
Carrie
The Exorcist
Misery
The Others
The Uninvited
A Tale of Two Sisters

Resent Worth a Watch:
It Follows
A Quiet Place

Waiting for (either on Video or in the Theater):
Heredity
The Little Stranger

    Old movie.  Not necessarily favorite.  Horror movie that scared me big time as a child.  House of Wax from 1953.  Friends took me to the theater -- two sisters, one my age and one older.
     
    My bro beagle (1954-1966).  I still miss him big time.
    His last collar hangs on my bedpost.

    Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning is one of the most charming werewolves movies. I like werewolves, and this one looks scary and serious but it is also a bit tongue-in-cheek  :)

    The Silence of the Lambs is counted as a thriller, but is in many respects a horror movie too, and not just in the awfulness of Buffalo Bill's crimes. Demme gives much of the movie a Gothic look. The relationship between Lecter and Starling is very much a Faustian one ... she wants increased knowledge, he wants to know what makes her tick (a look at her soul, in other words). And when Lecter escapes in Atlanta, he almost turns into a supernatural being who can walk through walls. Great stuff.

    I like Sleepy Hollow, but I don't really watch Horror movies in an effort to scare myself these days. I did when I was a younger.

    Yes and I liked it very much. Very interesting and unique concept...


    Also finally saw Heredity, which I thought was creepy and interesting but a little stagnate and unbelievable and in the end just bizarre.

    and I also saw The Little Stranger... I loved the look of it and the performances, I do love a slow burn movie but it is very slow and may not be everyone's cup of tea.

    A really good one I just saw is Thelma now ava on Hulu, excellent! A Carrie type story, very well done. Made in Norway, so subtitled but one of those ones that is so
    good you forget about that pretty quick.

    How about The Abominable Dr. Phibes, Vincent Price at his very best (the sequel was awful, sadly).

    And the movie whose ending had me retreating over the back of the couch? Pet Semetary. Holy cripes!

    Poltergeist (1983 version)
    The Haunting (1963)  :o
    The Uninvited (moldy oldy from 1944 or so)
    Fright Night (the 1980s version)
    The Thing (1980s version)
    Misery
    Gaslight (1944 version, maybe not really horror)
    Halloween (original)
    The Black Cat (I cant remember which version)
    Wait Until Dark (not really horror, but so good I cant resist including it)

    As a John Carpenter fan who had never seen The Fog, I was really disappointed to watch it recently while recovering from surgery. What a letdown, I just didnt care!

    The Hooded Claw, I can understand that. I don't consider it a great movie, but I do enjoy rewatching it. IMO, Adrienne Barbeau's character had the best job ever - DJ at a lighthouse radio station. I mean, is that even a real job?

    I travel around in rural areas sometimes, and Im sad to hear that a great many rural radio stations done Ben have DJs anymore! Just pipe through pre-recorded music from a national network.

    Nina, wow what a list! Tremors is wonderful, as is the short lived television series it spawned.

    Yeah good list. Tremors movie is great, didn't know there was a TV show, I might need to check that out. Trick 'r Treat is one I forgot about and haven't seen in a while, but I also really like it. I'd personally also add Zombieland to your zombie section, and you have many of my favorites listed.

    The Hooded Claw and Diamond Eyes, it's good to see there are other Tremors appreciators around. *thumbs up*.

    I was neglectful regarding Zombieland - one of my favorite parts was the fate of Bill Murray.
