    I know it's really a comedy and not a horror, but I just want to mention that "Shaun of the Dead" was fucking brilliant.

    Also, the movie that scared me the most was "Fire in the Sky". I saw it when I was in junior high. I'm not sure if it would scare me as much now but it scared the fuck out me back then.

    Exactly. It's supposed to make you feel uncomfortable. It's fucked up and extremely believable. That's why it kicks ass.

    That and the relatively boring first half of the film is nothing but a set up for the second half.

    As mentioned in the other thread... "The Decent." Pretty damn good scares and gore.

    Saw Orphan last night and although I was expecting it to be more terrifying (in the theatrical sense), Isabelle Fuhrman gave a very convincing performance as the little girl, Esther - easily one of the better roles by a 12 year-old that I can remember. She does a excellent job playing an extremely vicious and evil child with conniving and manipulative prowess that has some comparing her to Linda Blair's Regan MacNeil character.

    We were watching my GF's 15 yo cousin and her friend for one night. Told them to pick out a movie from our pile, guess which one they picked, 'The Hills Have Eyes' of course. So we let them watch it. Was that wrong? It was the unrated version. I hope they aren't scarred for life....

    The Collector looks like it might be pretty good. Kind of an interesting premise.
    Charlie, here comes the deuce. And when you speak of me, speak well.

    went and saw Dod Sno (Dead Snow) the new Norwegian Nazi Zombie horror flick.

    it owes a huge debt to Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson, but it's serious fun.

    I was under the impression that there would actually be skiing in this one (much in the same way that they pimped out the other Norwegian winter horror film Cold Prey as a snowboard flick, but it had very little snowboarding in it). Sadly, there was no skiing. But there was gratuitous use of sled in the most creative killing ways.

    While definitely cheesy, it was a fun flick that had you laughing, aghast in disgust (there are a couple of scenes that are just wrong) and provided the obligatory jump-out-of-your-seat moments.

    Highly recommended, especially since the Norwegians are quickly learning to make somewhat original slasher films that make Hollywood look ridiculous with their remakes and reboots of TCM, Halloween, all those Japanese horror films, etc.

    Plus horror films set in the cold and snow and winter are few and far between.

    Yeah - one of the Wegies here posted a thread on Død snø a few months back. Love the Nazi zombies emerging from the snow - very inspiring!

    Wes Craven's The Thing remake is one of the best horror films ever. I like how in the end everybody dies.

    I thought it was pretty good, though I can't complain anytime there's a new horror movie being released. I would say it's 5% Arachnophobia, 15% Hostel, 20% Saw, and 60% Home Alone. Some parts of the movie will no doubt raise a few questions on the logistics, but in the end, it's got gore, suspense, NIN-esque music, and is entertaining. Definitely better than Orphan.

    When I saw The Thing back in the day, blown away. Kurt Russell was THE MAN. Still can't think of a better sci-fi/horror movie. Scene where the guy screams he doesn't want to spend the winter tied to the FUCKING COUCH is classic. Northern BC footage at the beginning is awesome as well.
    For something different, try The Host. It's a Korean film about monsters, more cheese then anything, but good stuff.
    Salem's Lot is good for old TV fodder. Kid coming out of the grave gets me every time.
    Japanese version of The Eye, Ringu, and Deep Water are all light years ahead of the dumbed down versions made in the States. Personal opinion only of course.
    Burnt Offerings. Can't remember if it's as good as I seem to think it was, anybody chime in?
    Aliens 1 and 2. You know these were good, just admit it.

    No one has mentioned "Inside."

    It's a French gore flick that came out last year. Tops the list as the most brutal horror film I've ever seen.

    7.5 out of 10 on the scary meter.
    10 out of 10 on the graphic/disgusting meter (Nothing to compare it to. Pretty much sets a new standard for gore).

    It's really a great movie, well done in a all aspects.

    I won't even begin to describe it. Just go see it. It's a powerhouse display of brutality!! A must-see if you like horror movies. Totally fucking disgusting!!

    Edit: It's a little harder to find than most. You may have to consult Newbury Comics or a shop that carries indy material.

    Shawn of the Dead (for a good chuckle)
    Bubba Ho Tep (Bruce Campbell as Elvis? Hell yeah)
    I agree with Devils Rejects - 70's ish horror.

    You can't beat the classics -

    The Omen (Damien, I do this for you. Holy snikeys that is freaky.)
    Exorcist (Zoinks!)
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre (lo budget makes it spooky. And that chick can scream)
    Alien

    I see we have the same movie collection...


    Throw in a little Peter Jackson "Dead Alive/Braindead" for good measure.

    Texas chainsaw massacre?- too much screaming, and gave me a headache at the end of the day.

    Texas Chainsaw massacre (the remake 2003 with jessica Biel)-completely fucked and a good watch!

    1408 - Is my wife's favorite! No gore, just an awesome haunted psychological thriller!! Sam Jackson and John Cusack make this flick.
    Whoa, what you gotta say?? Whoa, girls turn 18 every day!!!

    Also check out Ichi the Killer, Visitor Q, and the Mr. Vengeance trilogy if you're looking for some twisted movies.

    Over the weekend I came across an interesting flick on one of the Showtime channels.

    One Eyed Monster

    Yes, it's what you think it is. More (bad) comedy than horror, but I assume that that is by design. See this move is you're stoned or something.

    Just saw The Thing and can't for the life in me see how this is regarded so highly. Hopefully, Eraserhead lives up to the hype.

    Let the Right One In is a Swedish vampire flick that scared the pants off me. Easily my favorite recent horror flick.

    Also the Hills Have Eyes (both versions) were gory, disturbing and got to me.

    Two others that surprised me were 2 recent Stephen King remakes, The Mist (everything was great except the dismal ending) and 1408 were great horror movies.

    Most have of the best have been mentioned: Shining, 28 Days Later, Exorcist, the Omen, etc.

    If you are expecting Eraserhead to be a horror film you will be very disappointed. I found it to be a really hard movie to watch start to end because of how, for lack of a better word, awkward it was. Let me know what you think.

    Back to the movies:

    If you are a person who can picture yourself in a character's place very easily you will find Wolf Creek really fucking scary. Same goes for Saw I.

    I was lucky enough to see Wolf Creek in London about a year before it was released Stateside. All I had to go on was a small blurb review in Time/Out. Hit up a midnight matinee in Notting Hill and i gotta say, that flick was intense. makes me not want to go to Australia, at least not to drive around the Outback by myself. While that film may have drawn upon the Texas Chainsaw Massacre mythos, it did a good job of updating it, wrapping it around a different culture, and kicking it up a few notches.

    Greg Mclean's (the director) sophomore effort, Rogue, does the same thing to the killer crock/angry alligator sub-genre. the key here is that Mclean has a solid grasp on creating and maintaining tension onscreen and then transferring that tension to the audience; he's what i would call an "intelligent genre director" following in the footsteps of early Cronenberg, vintage Carpenter, and classic Craven.

    sadly, too many of the genre directors these days aren't capable of doing that (capturing that tension, transferring it to the audience, and wielding a smart and scary story), especially in the slick, MTV obsessed rehashes (TCM w/J. Beil, both The Hills Have Eyes remakes, Zombie's Halloween remakes, etc).

    Honestly, perhaps the only rehash/remake that may have equaled the original was the recent Last House on the Left adaptation. the original is an exploitation classic. the new one keeps a lot of that edge, updating it for 2009. that said, i'd still recommend the original, it's got some harrowing material (as in gag/choke reflex moments).

    Pretty sure this is the most fucked up "Horror Film" stuff imaginable... all brought to you by the Japanese.

    American/western cinema has yet to come close to the exploitation and gore that is created by the Japanese.

    These movies will fuck you up.
