It's Horror movie time


Botched

Fourth Kind anyone????

That was very good IMO. I bought it on DVD.

Another movie that doesn't get much attention is Eden Lake. It's a very realistic movie that makes you care about the good guys, and really, really hate the bad guys. Brett is one of the most hateable horror movie villains ever. I think if I ever met that actor in person I'd have to fight the urge to strangle him.

just watched session 9 on netflix instant queue...that movie was good

session 9 is good. Most people have never even heard of it.

Movies to consider:

1 - Zombie land. Flat out great movie IMO. More funny than scary but totally worth watching.

2 - Dawn of the Dead (2004). Zombie Horror at it's best IMO.

3 - Shaun of the Dead. Hilarious movie.

4 - Army of Darkness. One of the most quotable movies every made and hilarious

5 - Event Horizon. Sci-fi horror.

6 - The Mist. Craziest ending I've seen in a long time.

7 - The Thing (1982). Still one of the best horror movies ever made.

8 - Interview with a Vampire. A Classic IMO.

9 - House (1986). Another classic.

10 - The Orphanage (2007). Entirely in Spanish. If you ever want to try foreign language films this and Pan's Labyrinth both directed by Del Toro are a great place to start.

11 - In the Mouth of Madness . Classic.

Drag Me to Hell is a great movie to watch with the lights out and the surround sound up loud with the base pumping.

I recommend Trick 'r Treat as well. It is a great movie with enough humor and scares to be fun. It focuses on a couple individual stories that are intertwined. It is now a must watch Halloween flick at the Homercles82 house. I cannot recommend this movie enough.

If you have not seen it yet you need to get "Let the right one in" on your netflix queue or stream it from the site. Yea subtitles but the movie is great. I also recommend seeing the remake "Let Me In" while in theaters. It truly is one of the best horror movies I have seen in years. It is a genre bending title. I also cannot recommend this movie enough.

Here are some staples in my house as well

American Werewolf in London

Halloween

Friday the 13th (original)

Dawn of the Dead (original)

Day of the Dead (original)

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original)

The Descent

Evil Dead I & II

The Lost Boys

Some fun movies from my child hood;

It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

Monster Squad

The Witches

I plan on watching Nosferatu this year. I also recommend Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stokers Dracula.

I'll throw some out there that most haven't heard of. Everyone's gonna say Halloween, or the Shinning, or Dawn of the Dead. So here's a few you've probably never heard of....and maybe one or two that you have.

Altered --- awesome, awesome, awesome movie. 15 years after 5 high school buddies are abducted by aliens, the 4 survivors return in an attempt to face the enemy that took their friend. Less halloweeny, and more Fourth Kind...but not a documentary, just an awesome flick.

Creep - a good horror flick about a chick who falls asleep in the underground metro system in London while waiting for her train.

Tooth And Nail - Set in a post apocalyptic world, a small band of survivors trying to reestablish some sort of society encounter and must survive against a roving gang of cannibals. This is pretty good one for a "not much talked about" horror movie staring Michael Madsen and Vinnie Jones.

Midnight Meat Train - Another flick with Vinnie Jones...based on a Clive Barker short story. Yes it sounds like a porn flick, but it's actually a pretty decent modern day horror.

Carriers - Another post apocalyptic movie where a small group of friends are on the road, trying to avoid the infected,in search of something resembling humanity.

So there's a little list of some lesser known horror movies that you haven't seen 100 times to get you going this Halloween.

And i'm in the minority apparently....but Session 9 sucked. I gave it one star on Netflix. That idea has been done to death, and honestly, that movie was really pretty boring.

Nice! I haven't seen any of those. Adding them to my queue right now.

Oh good, I'm not the only one who did not like it. The acting is decent, and the story is interesting, but I saw the ending coming a mile away and I found it just....dull. However, in the film's defense, I have been watching horror movies constantly since I was a little kid so I have become a touch jaded and I can see how others may like the film.

Personally, I tend to think of Halloween as being the time for ghosts and goblins, so other than Halloween (original) and Ravenous I lean towards haunted house and monster movies this time of year:

Poltergiest

House on Haunted Hill (original and remake - yes the remake is a tad silly, but I find it fun)

13 Ghosts (original and remake - see above comment)

Sleepy Hollow

An American Haunting

The Thing (1982 version)

Evil Dead 1 and 2

Ginger Snaps

Les Pacte des Loups

I also try and watch the 1949 Disney animated version of Sleepy Hollow with Bind Crosby as the narrator. I remember watching it every year on TV when I was a kid, so its pretty much become a personal tradition.

Good list.

I agree with the posters above about Session 9. It's very creepy and totally plausible.
