Your Favorite Horror Movie

Watching Texas Chainsaw (2003) with the ass-licious Eric Balfour. It's pretty good, but I know there's better.

Suggestions, DLers? What's your favorite horror film?

Favorite horror MOVIE is singular. Meaning one. R5, R6 are happily stupid.

BTW, "The Descent"

I spit on your grave (1978)

Can't pick one but here are my faves: Alien, Aliens, Halloween, Jaws and Return of the Living Dead. Last one is just a cheesy guilty pleasure but I do love it.

Friday the 13th (1980) and more recently: Wrong Turn 4- if only for the first 10 and last 2 minutes. I know two... sorry.

by Anonymousreply 2612/17/2011

OP - not my fave, but I loved Eric Balfour in Texas Chainsaw, and also Matt Bomer in the prequel that was made a few years later. That's the first I ever saw him in anything and remember thinking, damn! Why can't guys like him be gay? Little did I know...

This is how I picture Matt. In my basement.

Return of the Living Dead

Dawn of the Dead (remake) -I like the original too but the remake took it to a whole new level and reinvigorated the zombie genre

Black Christmas

In the Mouth of Madness

Slither -features Nathan Fillions hot ass in a uniform

The Blob (remake)


The Beyond

by Anonymousreply 2912/17/2011

Oops sorry I went a little overboard.

But if I had to choose it'd be Carrie -one of the best movies ever made regardless of genre.

The Sound of Music...

by Anonymousreply 3112/17/2011

For campy goodness, The Abominable Dr. Phibes or it's sequel, The Abominable Dr. Phibes Returns. Also Re-Animator and Frankenhooker.

Classic: Night of the Living Dead or Rosso Profundo

Asian: Audition, The Eye

Supernatural: Session 9, The Others, Pan's Labyrinth (nobody does it like Del Toro)

Monster: The Host, Alien, Carpenter's The Thing (Splinter also ran)

Zombie: 28 Days Later (I know, they're not zombies), Shaun of the Dead

Not a huge serial killer fan (Freddie, Jason, et al), but the Scream series is fun

Class of its own: Final Destination series

But my all time favorite is Old Boy- not a horror film, per se, but truly horrifies you.

by Anonymousreply 3212/17/2011

I think I know movies, but I don't ROSSO PROFUNDO.

by Anonymousreply 3312/17/2011

The Final Destination series is just fun, somewhat campy.

It's what the Saw series wishes it could be.

"I think I know movies, but I don't ROSSO PROFUNDO"

You might know it better as Argento's "Deep Red" -famous for the axe murder scene.

by Anonymousreply 3512/17/2011

R8, not many horror film devotees can pick just ONE because there are genres within the horror genre, so STFU, control freak!

Some of my faves are: "Rosemary's Baby", the original "The Hills Have Eyes", "Hellraiser", "Frankenstein", the original "Night Of The Living Dead", "The Omen" and both versions of 'The Visitors", though, IIRC correctly, the version with Liv Tyler wasn't called "The Vistors".

The Asian horror films are yet another genre, I enjoyed "The Eye" and "The Ring" films.

I forgot about all the wonderful Hammer horror films from the 1960s which used to be on late night weekends, in the 1970s, when I was kid, such as "Blood On Satan's Claw" and other horror camp-fests with the fantastic Vincent Price. There was one with Vincent and Diana Rigg which was great.

You can't just pick ONE horror film!

I second r11. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Between those few minutes that Barbara’s in the house alone before Ben arrives and those breaking news reports still creeps me out to this day.

by Anonymousreply 4112/17/2011

The Birds, Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist... I like a plot and decent acting. And a director who knows how to create suspense.

Most 'horror' movies now just use funhouse shock gimmicks. And hire whatever models who'd give up their ass on the casting couch.

by Anonymousreply 4212/17/2011

Better to ask me a sub-jandra such as favorite ghost, science-fiction, slasher, etc.

If I had to pick one favorite it would be Alien, which is one of my favorite movies of all time.

R37, you are the only other person to know "Blood on Satan's Claw" alive in the world today.

P.S. I loved the soundtrack.

R45, Night of the Hot Zombie Men

by Anonymousreply 4912/17/2011

Actually, r45, Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl is much better.

Though I always yell out, "FRIED SHRIMP!!!!" to my friends.

On that note, might as well throw in Battle Royale, which Hunger Games is a ripoff of.

by Anonymousreply 5012/17/2011

I'll go with 'Hostel' .... I think that shit really happens.

by Anonymousreply 5112/17/2011

Amazing amazing horror film, and arguably the best I have ever seen:

Le Interieur (Inside) starring French star Beatrice Dalle.

Truly inspired film- expertly directed, lit, designed.. with so many amazing scenes but one that I have never seen anything like- Takes place in the living room relatively early into the film, it is bascially an amazing camera shot of something behind the actress.. I just don't want to spoil it. Simply insane film.

Runners UP:

The Hills Have Eyes remake

The Exorcist

Black Christmas

Halloween 1 and 2

Friday The 13th Part 3 (3D)

Silence of The Lambs

A particularly guilty pleasure was "Orphan" starring Vera Farmiga. LOVED it.

Halloween (the original). The scariest movie I ever saw in my life.

By far, the most disturbing movie I've ever seen is the 2006 film Cannibal, based on the Armin Meiwes case. I slept with the light on that night.

Are there hotties in any of these?

by Anonymousreply 5612/21/2011

I never liked those slasher Chainsaw, Elm St., Freddie Krueger, Halloween things. I prefer the Exorcist and The Omen, and Sci Fi stuff like the Alien franchise. Rosemary's Baby was excelent and if you haven't seen The Other, you should.

"Night of the Living Dead" by George A. Romero is hard to beat. A true black and white classic. Filmed during June through December 1967 in Pennsylvania. Released in October 1968. Great plot and characters. The Evans City Cemetary used for the opening scene is still a popular tourist attraction. If you haven't seen this movie check out on DVD. There's hot muscular young guy in a tshirt named Tom in the movie. Played by 22 year old actor Keith Wayne. The zombies would really have been salivating if Tom would have went outside shirtless.
