  • What Horror movie is a "must see"?

    I'm not a movie buff at all. I rarely watch movies actually but I am in the mood to get scared for some reason

    I watched the Shining the other day, it was pretty good but wasn't really scary, so I was kind of disapointed.

    What horror movie should I watch that will have me watching with one eye open?

    The Exorcist

    I AM a movie buff, and a huge horror one at that. I'm not easily scared (actually I'm fairly immune to most things) but that movie still gives me chills to this day.

      Thanks

      I am gonna check that movie out. Any other good ones you recommend? I heard some 1960's movie called "Psycho" was good but its in black and white. Ever heard of it?

        Seriously, you just saw The Shining and you just heard about Psyco?
        How old are you? Just wondering where to begin as I am a horror buff. I mean have you seen the original Friday the 13th or Halloween? Or Nightmare on Elm Street? Not all of the sequels, but the originals. Or for more modern films, try the Saw franchise. The first one is the best. Still they are not as much scary as they are gore-y and disturbing. Also, The Hills Have Eyes is creepy. The Strangers(scary because it based on true events). Let me know what you've seen and what you like, ie do you like gore and blood, psycological thrillers, zombie flicks, sci-fi, etc...
        P.S. There is a late 90's scene for scene remake of Psyco starring Vince Vaughn, its in color.

          I'm 23 but I never watch movies, I haven't even seen Star Wars

          I am just looking for some of the best scary movies that are out. I have seen all of the Saw movies and I like those

          What would your top 5 Horror movies be? (I don't get sick easy or scare easy)

                The thing is... they don't do horror movies like they used to. Some of the older stuff still get's to me because it's at least plausible. Nightmare, Halloween, Fri the 13th.... those were good. Now we get stuck with crap like The Eye or Saw(don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the Saw series for entertainment, but it's not the same). The Shining seems to make everyones list. The Hills Have Eyes was pretty creepy! I enjoyed that one very much. The original Body Snatchers? Night of the Living Dead. My buddy swears by the original War of the Worlds. The Exorcism, it was great. Then there is the Exorcism of Emily Rose with Laura Liney(I love her!). The Ring was good. I dunno why, and Im probably in the minority here... but I also like the Mothman Prophesies despite really really not liking Richard Gere. When I was little it was all about Children of the Corn! Pick up the Amittyville Horror... probably the original would suffice. Another one that scared the crap out of me when I was little was Dolls, but it's not too well done in hindsight, just creepy how the little f'ers come to life and kill people. Anywho.... enjoy!!!!

                  If you want scary, watch Halloween.

                  If you liked the Saw movies, I'd bet you'd like Nightmare on Elm Street and the Friday the 13th movies.

                  I just rewatched Poltergeist, and was reminded how much I liked it. Not all that scary, but it's a pretty good watch.

                    Cujo

                    Most Stephen King books do NOT make good films, but the dog is scary as hell. Christine is also freaky ish!

                    I find films that play on your mind to be quite scary as opposed to slasher flicks.

                    The original 13th and Nightmare are the ways to go. Also, Wes Craven's return to the genre with Scream.

                      Thanks for the suggestions

                      I think I saw some of the Freddy and Halloween movies when I was a little kid. I might have to rewatch them because I never could pay attention long enough to actually remember them.... I was a little ADD as a kid but I can pay attention now

                      And I live in WV about 45 minutes away from Point Pleasant (where the mothman was supposed to be around)

                        I agree with the first Nightmare on Elm Street. That's a great movie.

                          If you live close to Point Pleasant then you hafta watch it. SHould give you just a little bit of "eek".

                            Yeah, I actually liked the first Scream pretty well, too. It's clever with how it almost satirizes the genre.

                              And Wes is in it wearing Freddy's hat and sweater!

                              I'm one of those "Oh yes, go into the basement where 9 of your friends have been brutally slaughtered...you moron" type of watchers, so Scream was so clever for me!
