I am starting s forum to discuss horror movies.
Please share what you like or don't
I'm starting of with a list (not in any particular order) of "horror" movie which I personally like and a short description of why
Eye, The (見鬼) 2002
One of the more original horror story, and from Asia
Mr. Vampire (殭屍先生) 1985
Ah this really brings back memories. I've bought this is SO many formats, it is NOT funny. Interesting that the director was SO over budget, they at the end he had to BEG for more money from the company boss (Sumo Hung). It cost 8 million HK dollars to make, and that was UNHEARD of then. The director's uncle were actually a taoist priest, and the movie were base on an accumulation of stories his uncle told him when he was young!
Nang Nak 1999
There were scenes in this movie, that still gives me goose pimples...
An American Werewolf in London 1981
Ah, the good old 80s. Was a shock when it first came out. Also inspired Michael Jackson's (may he rest in peace) Thriller MTV. And launch John Landis career as a director. Be warn, a little racy...
Ah. Again a rare Stephen King adaption I like (another is Needful Things, which I started a forum which nobody added to!!). Very well filmed movie. After this movie, the "kid" went on to star in a sitcom called Who's the Boss. Have to say, the kid stole the show.
Diary of the Dead 2007
Nice to know how people reacted in the first few hours of George A Romero's zombie story.
I don't know why I like this. I just do. Maybe how in a round about way it linked to the bible... hmmm
And the fourth one coming out soon would probably introduce new audience to this series. Still like the first one best.
Thir13en Ghosts 2001
Robert Zemecski and Joe Silver, reintroduce old horror movie in new light. They were suppose to make one every year but had stop after Gothika... Like the little stories they created for each ghost.
Fright Night 1996
A silly like vampire movie, which I like
From Dusk Till Dawn 1996
This is actually two movies, first part VERY Quentin Tarantino and the second Robert Rodriguez. Too bad the two had a fall out after Grindhouse movie.
From Hell 2001
Johnny Depp in another dark tale. Interesting how he started his career in Nightmare on Elm Street! A modern take on Jack the Ripper.
House on Haunted Hill 1999
The first of the supposed many from Robert Zemecski and Joe Silver collaboration. Well executed.
The Howling 1981
1981 was the year of the wolf. This year produce two excellent werewolf movie. This and An American Werewolf in London.
Joy Ride 2001
Creepy truck driver... Nuff said
Jeepers Creepers 2001
Now you know why Justin Long is in Drag Me to Hell, he was good in this one as well
Land of the Dead 2005
George A. Romero return to the Zombie genre. Horray!
Needful Things 1993
I like this movie about Satan. but apparently no one else apart from me had watched it. Watched and like it I suppose
A Steven "wunderkind" Spielberg dipped his toe into the horror genre
The Shining 1980
Brings new meaning to the term, Honey! I'm home!! "Redrum, REDRUM!!"
I was horrified and rolled on the floor laughing as the same time. REALLY!!
Sleepy Hollow 1999
Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. What else does one has to say? Still think that his Jack Sparrow character is a hypebole if his Ichabod Crane character!!
Stir of Echoes 1999
To bad in came in the wake of The Six Sense....
Wrong Turn 2003
One of the last few things Stan Winston worked on. I miss that guy...
Really good vampire movie. Trust me on this
There you have it ladies and gentlemen
Feel free to write
