Horror Movies!
« on: October 28, 2015, 10:33:10 PM »
Do you have a favorite top 5?  If so, what are they? How about any off the beaten track gems that not many know about?

My top 5 seems to change from time to time but Angel Heart (horror thriller) is always in there.  And I must say, that I blame the Blair Witch thingy for about 15 years of hand held POV bad, unoriginal let downs.

I think Halloween III is under-rated and unappreciated (by most.) It stands on its own, was a interesting departure in the franchise, and has themes (and catchy song) that are deeper than one might think.

Thing is it has Tom Atkins, who deserved an Oscar for this and The Fog, and a good score and some good character actors you might recognize. And is totally off the reservation of the franchise. But the plot (absurdly hilarious!) the "social media" aspect (commercials) and Tom's great performance (and many funny lines about drinking or wanting to drink) make it an over-looked, and under-rated gem.

Carrie [the original]
Terror Train
Shaun of the Dead
Final Destination [while I enjoyed all of them, I think the first one is my favorite of the franchise]
Halloween [the original]

I also liked All Cheerleaders Die - in a campy sort of way.  ;D

Whoa. All good. I can't watch "Let's Scare" and "Changeling" even to this day without issue going asleep. The others mentioned, awesome but the particularly weirdness of "Let's Scare Jessica to Death" Epic but be warned.

The Exorcist made me laugh when it came out. maybe i was that disturbed from reading the book a year earlier. or maybe i'm just disturbed.  ;D

one of my viewings of the film was at the base theater in Misawa Japan. it was shut down three times because of the audience "noise" until it was explained that it wasn't noise.  8)

I prefer classic horror.  Noir-ish stuff with a good story, rather than formulaic slasher horror.

No particular order and not necessarily my favorites, but all memorably scary ~

Rosemary's Baby (still scares me just thinking about it)
Dementia 13
The Haunting
The Shining
Dr Terror's House Of Horrors (a bit campy, but hey..Christopher Lee!)

"Halloween III."  "Happy, happy Halloween..."
Vincent Price's "The Last Man on Earth."  The only last man worth watching.
"The Hunger."  David Bowie, oh yeah.  Always stylish.
"Videodrome."  More weird than horror.  Ms. Harry, oh my.
"Hannibal."  If Dr. Lecter isn't horror, what is?  Anthony Hopkins, none better.  It was a surprise to learn Gary Oldman was Mason Verger.  "Cordellll..."  Who needs Jodie Foster.

Honorable mention for "Saw."

Misery
The Car
Christine - More cool than horror. (You guys name your cars don't you ? ) I was cheering when Moochie bit the dust.
Original Twilight Zone - "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet"  Freaked the shit out of me the first time I saw it.


Of course the one in the movie was scarier looking


Jacobs ladder - total mind-fuck. http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/jacobs-ladder-1990

Also:
The first time ( at 4 years old ) the I saw the "Bumble" claw his way over the mountain range in "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer". Thanks  Rankin/Bass Productions and Burl Ives, you traumatized the shit out of me and started my lifelong distrust of anything on television.  ;D
 

 Yukon Cornelius was cool though.

ERrrrrrrrr wait a minute...



To continue with ones you may not of heard of:

Faces of Death  -  Just downright disturbing & revolting
The Devil's Rain - Earnest Borgnine as a psycho Satanist - classic B-Movie
The original  The Fall of the House of Usher
And Now The Screaming Starts (1973)
The Beast [La Bete] (1975) by Barry Meyer   NOTE: This movie was banned for a quarter century in the uncut version. BarFly, you should find a copy of this if you haven't seen it already. ;)  :D Pretty good write up about it here: http://www.filmmonthly.com/Video/Articles/TheBeast/TheBeast.html

Alien Apocalypse - Starring Bruce Campbell, Renee O’Connor, Remington Franklin, & Michael Cory Davis. Not really a horror flick, but if you like Army of darkness/evil dead & starship troopers, this movie would be the result if you crossed them.

The Beast of Bray Road - Directed by Leigh Scott.
Cemetery Man (1994)
 The Bad Seed (1956)
Scary True Stories   Directed by Norio Tsuruta - Ten Japanese ghost stories. Freaky & weird.

Here's a couple of "odd" movies.

"Remote Control" - Yeah, it's got Kevin Dillon but to hell with him.  It has Jennifer Tilly and the hottie valley girl Deborah Goodrich.  The first time I stumbled upon this bizarre '80s flick was late at night, ages ago.  I felt like James Woods in "Videodrome."



"Killer Klowns from Outer Space" - Noory must hate this one so it has to be good.



"The Return of the Living Dead" - Goofy, fun horror.
