Hi People

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...

Cujo 1983
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.

Dracula 2000
I don't know why I like this. I just do. Maybe how in a round about way it linked to the bible... hmmm

Final Destination
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

Poltergeist 1982
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!!"

Slither 2006
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!! tongue.gif

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...

Vampires 1998
Really good vampire movie. Trust me on this

There you have it ladies and gentlemen

Feel free to write

I thought it did.

I hope I didn't give the impression that the above are the ONLY horror movies I have watched. I was asked by a forumer to list down my top ten, but I did top 25 instead (not in sequence... I like to keep people guesing smile.gif )

it seems like the directors now a days have ran out of ideas ... most of the new horror movies SUCK ... they are so boring that u can predict what is going to show up on the screen ... seems like its a dying genre ...

Well, I thought like you, until in 1999 Sixth Sense came along (the only reason why it is NOT in my list, is because it doesn't survive repeat viewing), and I went like, wow.... and then The Eye (asian version) came out, and it's like WAH, and the japanese ring came out that was just spooky.

This year, there is Dragged me to hell, and I seriously like it. I haven't had a chance to watch it again, so that is why, it is NOT in my list (have to survive repeat viewing). So don't give up on the genre

Most concepts are re-used but the packaging can be updated!

I think the problem with most horror movie nowadays is the packaging gets more and more elaborate, but the content is almost non existance (not a problem only in the horror genre)

A lot of the paranormal pictures used in Shutter are suppose to be real.

Also, if you had watched Pang Brothers The Eye 10, some of the "superstitions" in the movie are suppose to be real as well.

What about you Angel of Death, what is your Top Ten list of Horror movies?

Ju-On series - Can't get enough of this
Child's Play 1 & 2 - really freakin me when i'm 7 years old
Lot's of thai horror but forgot the title due to the complex title
Living Dead series by John Russo and George A romero ( but i prefer the smaller budget in the 60's, 70's and 80's rather than the new one )
Some indonesian like Pocong and Malaysia Jangan Pandang Belakang.
Maximum Overdrive - back in the day, i liked monster truck/Trailer
Jeeper creepers -
Rec (This is good too)
Silent Hill - pretty good for a game-based movie
Evil Dead 1 & 2 - this is my favourite
Keranda Berdarah - Malay old horror movie.
The Ring 1 & 2 japanese version, english version suck.
The Eye - Very good 1st view ghost 'revealing' movie.
Saw series - Jigsaw is really clever
Final Destination 1 & 2

That's all i can remember. Btw, can you recommend me some old skool horror movie?? Because i'm more interested in old movie.

good list...some worthy addition :

The Devil's Reject - rob zombie's masterpiece...nothing can come close in terms of crude/gruesome/disgusting killer's portrayal...

Session 9 - psychological horror...successor to The Shining...

Well, top of my head:

Halloween (1978)
The Fog (1980)
The Thing (1982)
Christine (1983)
Village of the Damned (1960)
Carrie (1976) U'll be surprise that John Travolta is in this one!!?
Firestarter (1984) Still haven't found a copy of this!! sad.gif
Rosemary's Baby (1968)
The Omen (1976)
The Exorcist (1973)
Cat People (1982) Be prepared to "wash your eyes" after this one, Not "horror", "horror", movie per se
Pet Sematary (1989)
Children of the Corn (1984)
Salem's Lot (1979) (TV)
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)

Enough for you to chew on? nod.gif
