I'm a horror geek since I saw JAWS when I was 5, I think. The movie was absolutly terrifying and I'd nightmares over weeks! But I just can't stopped watching it. The movie gave the sea that dark kind of magic I love and I fear. I was fascinated by the ocean and sharks, which are till today my favorite animals.
Other horror movies I saw as a kid were a lot of monster and animal hororr movies like ORCA, PIRANHA, GRIZZLY or CUJO. But also the slasher genre get me when I was around 10 and I saw HALLOWEEN 4 on television.
From Germany, but I have nothing to do with the SS-Werewolfs!
i love all types of horror movies but i mostly like the really bad cheesy older ones. I love everthing from the universal monsters to really bad b movies like screaming skull, wasp woman, brain that wouldnt die, plan 9 from outer space. Im just going to list a bunch of movies i like lol
-I spit on your grave
-carnival of souls
-i drink your blood
-coffy (pam grier is amazing!!) lol
- big bird cage/big doll house
-Herschell gordon lewis films
.....the list can go on and on, i just wanted to list a few that came to mind
Sweet!! I finally saw Basket Case last week on Netflix. I had heard about it for awhile, but most of the video stores in my area get rid of their older movies. So there are a lot of older horror movies I haven't seen. I still haven't seen Orca, for instance. .But,we finally got Net Flix, and I enjoyed Basket Case.
basket case is one of my all time favorites!! havent seen the second but the third was kinda bad. even frank henenlotter said it was bad lol speaking of older horror films, i think its kinda cool that sometimes i might be watching a movie and then i hear a phrase from it that rob zombie has used in one of his songs, then im like oooh so thats which movie it came from lol i was watching Daughters of Darkness maybe a month ago or so and then realized that a quote from it was used in demenoid phenomenon.
@ moon, theres soooooo many good horror movies to reccommend, dont know where to begin lol if your into really violent and gory films, definetly check out INSIDE. another good one that i saw recently was THE WOMAN. stir of echoes is a creepy one to check out. theres so many more i could reccommend it just depends on what type of horror you like
I will try anything if it is horror.. I have seen Inside and I have heard some good things about The Woman.
Netflix is great, there is a pretty big selection of horror movies..There are some I have heard of, but many I never have..And there are so many choices, it is hard to know what to pick..It is like being a kid in a candy store.
Hi - I really only watch horror movies and have seen some bloody awful ones but I must say some of the best horrors seem to have been made in the 80's! Recently I have seen some pretty good ones,anyone seen Mum and Dad? English film very good.Also I really enjoyed devil -not a full blown horror but good - also insidious was great! Too many to mention in one place but Horror Rocks!!
the 80s were the best!! so many awesomely bad and cheesy films. the 80s had it all lol Night of the Creeps is a great movie to check out, more of a horror comedy from the director of monster squad (another classic). Night of the demons is good. Prom night, my bloody valentine, madman, maniac, slumber part massacre, the beyond, house by the cemetery, theres so many amazing horror movies from the 80s.Most of the best ones came from the 80s!! ...i kinda wish i could time travel back to the 80s haha and of course dont forget about those great little mom and pop video stores. those vhs had amazing artwork unlike the posters out today
I loved those Mom and Pop video stores..I remember going them as a kid, and most of the ones in my area, put up lots of horror movie posters. This was the 80's, so I remember one of them had a poster from Sleep Away Camp at one point. And one from Return of the Living Dead...I remember staring at the horror posters, and the video boxes many times..The art on these posters and boxes scared me, but at the same time, I wanted to see them..But, of course my parents would have never rented one of those movies for me, so I would always just grab something I had already seen a hundred times.. But, I did get to see Monster Squad as a kid, and I did love it.
Thanks Indian..By the way, it is good to see you again..Back on topic..I have been meaning to check out Tucker and Dale Vs Evil..I did watch some of it, and I was liking it, then something on the internet distracted me..I need to watch it sometime after I put my lap top away for the night, the internet tends to be a huge distraction for me..
ive heard good things about tucker and dale vs evil. theres a couple o newer movies that i still need to check out. have any of you seen the sking i live in, we are waht we are, or the inkeepers? ive heard those are all good. Chillerama was pretty good.
@moon, i love those mom and pop video stores! i wasnt alive in the 80s lol but i remember there used to be a mom n pop video store in my town when i was little and my sister would take me there all the time. i wasnt allowed to rent anything R rated but would look at those covers. I especially remember seeing the vhs cover for Stuart Gordon's film DOLLS and i always wanted to see it. I grew up watching movies like monster squad and buffy the vampire slayer and of course goosebumps lol
i wasted 1hour and 26 minutes of my life yesterday watching the movie I Know Who Killed Me. its that movie starring lindsay lohan. ok so i already had heard bad things about this movie but i still wanted to see it and give it a shot. i thought maybe it wont be that bad.i wanted to like it but it was horrible. the acting, the music, the plot...it was all terrible. and they placed so much emphasis on the color blue? i dont know why. theres something called subtlety, the audience isnt stupid..they just kept showing blue things, its hard to explain if any of you have seen it then you probablly know what im taking about. this movie just sucked thou. unfortunately i wasted my time and $4.99 which i prob wont get back
The Inn Keepers is on my cable's pay per view..I might rent it soon..
And,Something Wierd, if you haven't seen Doll's yet, I think it might have seen it on Net Flix..I haven't seen it yet, but I probably will soon.
I liked Human Centipede, I thought it was going to be more disgusting than it actually was though..I haven't seen part 2 yet.
Moon, i have seen Dolls, i bought it a long time ago haha its an ok movie. I really want to see the inkeepers but i think im gonna wait until it comes out on DVD.
I wasnt a huge fan of the human centipede films. THe first isnt really disgusting its just the thought of what they are doing is disgusting, the second was a little more graphic in terms of showing the disgusting stuff lol the movie itself was alright, theres not much to the movie, its very simple story, i think the director just made that movie to shock and offend people and show a little more violence and whatnot than the first film. like i said im not a huge fan of those movies but i think the second is better than the first
Like most Zombie Heads, I freakin' LOVE horror! I love really good horror...and really ridiculously bad horror as well!!!
I'm a huge fan of John Carpenter's original Halloween, the Evil Dead Trilogy (especially 2!), Return of the Living Dead, the Friday the 13th series (which covers both good AND horrible horror) and the vast majority of the classics. I'm also incredibly passionate about the classic Universal Monster movies, as well as the Hammer stuff from the 60's and 70's.
I really dig films that get under your skin and make you think, or films that stay on your mind long after you have watched them. One of the best films I have seen in a very long time is the British thriller KILL LIST. Everything about it is awesome. Performance wise, story & direction were top drawer. It's very clever in that it leaves it open to the audience to give their ideas and every audience member has their version of what its about (especially the ending). I know there has been a lot of fuss regarding the ending, but I loved it, as it was a throwback in homage to The Wicker Man, but certainly stamped it's own spin . Has anyone else checked it out? and what did you think?
I have a lot of favorites when it comes to Horror, from The Omen to Nekromantik. But one of my favorites stands out, Clive Barker's Hellraiser is just excellent!. I must say that Rob Zombie's The Devils Rejects is also a BIG favorite, just my cup of tea.
Most of my favorite horror movies are made by crazy Italians, but I have a big favorites list, I love them all. I remember when I was a kid I got hooked on John Carpenter's movies like The Thing & Halloween (yes, it was banned in Norway). One movie perticular was hard to come by uncut back then, Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) was banned in Norway (what a suprise!), but could be bought cheap from Denmark though Deathdog Video.
Back then I also managed to get hold of an old copy of Ruggero Deodato's Inferno in Diretta aka. Cut and Run aka. Straight to Hell
from 1985 starring Michael Berryman as Quecho the assassin. I'm a big fan of Michael Berryman and I am very pleased to see that he is back on the sceen.
My favorite horror movies containing Zombies has to be Luci Fulci's ...E tu Vivrai nel Terrore!, L'aldilà aka.The Beyond aka. Seven Doors of Death (U.S cencored version). I own the European release on DVD and the Italian directors cut on Blu-ray. What a movie!, over the top gore, acidmelting face & fleshripping spiders, not bad for 1981. Even better than Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 aka. Zombie aka. Zombie Flesh Eaters from 1979. Gianetto de Rossi is the Zombie FX master (no blue Zombies here), the memorable throatripping slomo scene and the Zombie vs. Shark scene is awesome. Who can forget the marauding Zombie Dr. Fraudstein with maggots for blood from Lucio Fulci's Quella Villa Accanto al Cimitero aka.The House by the Cemetery from 1981.
I almost forgot Lucio Fulci's Paura Nella Città dei Morti Viventi aka. City of the Living Dead aka. The Gates of Hell (U.S cencored version) from 1980, the scene where Giovanni Lombardo Radice gets drilled trough the head is intense!
Don't get me wrong, I love George a. Romero's Zombie classics, but the Italian Zombie movies are darker, more menacing.
Well, I'm off work now, enjoy the weekend!
Wow..Thanks for the info Fulciboy..I never heard that Halloween was banned in Norway..For what reasons was it banned? And I had never heard of Straight to Hell, and now I want to see it, because I love Micheal Berryman..
