It would probably never get filed under horror, but my favourite 'horror' film is Eraserhead. It evokes emotions that most scary movies won't come close to.

Others I like are The Shining, The Fly, The Thing (anything starting with the...), Evil Dead 2, Poltergeist, Dawn of the Dead, Drag me to Hell, NOES, Salem's Lot, American werewolf in London, Dark Water.

Probably not the greatest person for this, since I hate being scared by films. But I'm going to join in anyway! (I'm nineteen, by the way)
Though I'd in no way class it as a horror, I do have a great love for Shaun of the Dead, as many here seem to!
I quite like Dawn of the Dead (Alas, I've only seen the remake) and Alien off the top of my head. Key thing for a good horror film to me is a building of suspense and apprehension, rather than what seems to be becoming more and more common with the "scary" part of films just being moments that make you jump (E.g pretty much every part of the Paranormal Activities)

Loyalty is its own reward.

Aliens is pretty awesome... but is it just me, or do people tend to count that more as a Sci-fi rather then a horror?

Then again theres probably alot of cross genre movies that some people count more as one class then another.

Well, I'd personally class the first film as a sci-fi horror. They become action films after that, really, but yeh.

I liked 28 days later, anything with the break down of society I find scary as I always place myself in that scenario and think what would I do. Event Horizon was scary too I thought but that is a bit mixed genre. Modern horror is really just torture porn, hopefuly the remake of "the thing" -loved the original- might inspire directors to do horror properly rather than just cheap slasher movies with shite stories. My age is in the name!!

Was born in 82, nearly 30 years old.

My fave horrors are Scott's Alien, John Carpenter's The Thing, any of Romero's original Dead series (night, dawn, day etc).

I think the only other film that really hit my buttons was Wolf Creek, seriously messed up shit in that one. Not scary as such, just more disturbing.

Two others I enjoyed but weren't that scary were the Scream series (tongue in cheek and very knowing with it's humour), and the first Tremors movie (billed as a comedy horror on it's release).

Other than that, nothing really comes close. A few slashers here and there, Paranormal Activity 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 etc etc and the 75,000 Saw films but they're not scary or jumpy, which is what a horror should be.

Come to think of it, the films I mentioned being scary are more about the Haunted House feel with claustraphobic undertones and a relatively well hidden hidden enemy.
Which I find, personally, much more scary than all out blood, guts and knives with the killer/s being shown in all their glory at the very start.

Polystyrene, PVA and Pot Noodles, the staple diet of any true model maker.

Age 23 and as I started reading this thread my first choice for horror movie would be a toss up between John Carpenter's The Thing and the original Friday the 13th.

However, when I look back and think on which movie has horrified me the most I can say without a doubt its Human Centipede 2.


Now I watched the original for the sole reason that what was done is medically possible. (The linking of living beings in that manner, nothing more.) And that scared the hell out of me; because you know there is at least one person out there sick enough to consider actually doing it; and thats the plot of the sequel.

I haven't seen number two, and I can freely admit that its because I am to scared, not disgusted, to watch it. Someday I will hopefully pluck up the courage to see it (as soon as it gets on netflix.)


So yeah, 23 and human centipede 2 and I haven't even seen it yet.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest

Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?
