Your Top Ten High-Quality Horror Movies

Please - nothing that is primarily slasher or gore or exploding aliens. I'm looking for supernatural or psychological horror, like [italic] Rosemary's Baby [/italic], or [italic] Psycho [/italic], and ideally films that can be considered masterpieces of the genre.

What are your favorites? TV movies and sci-fi are okay!

Thanks!

That's the exact scene I was thinking of as well R17. Scared the hell out of me the first time I saw it.

It's a pity that Blatty basically had to make it into an Exorcist sequel - the scenes trying to tie it into that mythology are the weakest. I haven't read Legion, but it could be interesting to see a remake that isn't trying to be part of the Exorcist canon.

A sketch called The Drop of Water in one of Mario Bava's horror film. The whole film was made of three sketches, but The Drop of Water will make you lock your door if you hear your tap leaking during the night.

That ghost story is very predictable, nothing original there. This is why it's scary: you know exaclty where it is going.

by Anonymousreply 3009/14/2013

The original Halloween from 1978 was really good. If you watch the "making of" on the Biography Channel, it shows how the low budget led to some choices that made the movie truly creepy, particularly for its time.

When I was a kid, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, the original TV movie, scared the hell out of me and my brother. The remake sucked, of course.

Is Crowhaven Farm the film where ...

POSSIBLE SPOILERS IF I'M RIGHT . . . ...witches where punished by being put under a plank and then slowly crushed to death by adding stones on the plank? And the new woman moving to this remoted area was not a coincidence, she was the reincarnation of a woman from that village who had turned in some witches. The reincarnation of these vicitms wanted to exact revenge on her ?

END OF SPOILERS

As for The Woman Screaming, this rings a bell, but unfortunately, I think I was exposed to an edulcorated remake. I remember watching an episode made for TV in the 80s where a little boy heard the screams of a woman buried in the woods. We know from the start he is right, but the stupid adults around him don't believe him because he is a child. It ends well, when the little boy sings a song he heard the burried woman sing and it is a song his father had made especially for that woman. Only her knew it! So the father realise his son is telling the truth and the woman is saved.

It was a bit mysterious, there was some suspense, but scary, it wasn't !

Can you tell me more about the original with Olivia De Havilland ? I bet it doesn't end that well ?

39 reposnses and no mention of the original Night of the Living Dead or Texas Chainsaw Massacre?

Both were very much of their time, and while Living Dead is gory it is also tense and terrifying; Chainsaw Massacre has surprisingly little blood, but the sense of dread, terror and revulsion it creates is palpable.

by Anonymousreply 4009/14/2013

R39 ...

SPOILER AHEAD on 'The Screaming Woman'..

Anyone feel free to jump in and correct me if I get it wrong....

As I recall it, Olivia and the woman's husband are fighting furiously outside. He is trying to kill her and suddenly his wife scratches her way out of the ground he buried her in. I think the husband then keels over of a heart attack.

But I may be off base with some of that recall.

by Anonymousreply 4109/14/2013

Mine would be:

(1) The Haunting (the original) -- best horror film ever made. Absolutely terrifying with the loud booms and the expanding closed door.

(2) The Innocents -- who can forget the moment with the tear on the slate in the classroom? or Miss Jessel glowering in the rushes in the pouring rain?

(3) The Devil's Backbone -- A great setting (a boy's orphanage under siege in the middle of a wasteland during the Spanish Civil War), a scary pool, and a great creepy ghost. Plus, Eduardo Noriega as his studliest.

(4) The Woman in Black -- A great haunted house in a great setting, and a great scary ghost. The sequence where the ghost emerges from a door at the end of a hallway behind Daniel Radcliffe is very scary

(5) The Shining -- The whole film isn;t as scary as the early parts, but the sense of disorientation and menace in the beginning is great, as are the famous Steadicam shots from danny's point of view on his Big Wheel

(6) The Others -- Another genuinely great haunted house, with first rate performers (Nicole Kidman in her best performance to date, Fionnula Flannagan, Christopher Eccleston, and that great child actress). Beautiful sense of atmosphere, and a fine emphasis on character

(7) Session 9 -- The whole doesn't quite come together, but this has the best pre-existing setting for a horror film ever: the crumbling and abandoned Danvers State Home for the Insane (since demolished), which may or may not be the home to either ghosts or to former inmates who have come back to threaten a hazmat team

(8) The Invasion of the Body Snatchers (either version--they are equally good) -- These are usually grouped with sci-fi films, but they are truly horror films, and they both have excellent claustrophobic paranoid atmospheres, and each offers a great hysterical performance--Carolyn Jones in the original and Veronica Cartwright in the remake

(9) The Birds -- Again, although rarely admitted to be a straight horror film, it really is one. The confused family tensions have something to do with the random attacks of the birds, but what, exactly?

(10) Inferno -- The whole movie is not good at all, but the beginning sequence--where the heroine drops her keys into a submerged room beneath her feet, and must dive in for them--is both beautiful and terrifying.

Quatermass and The Pit- English horror flick about martian spaceship found when expaning subway. Very comfortably British and then NOT comforting at all.

The Devils - by Ken Russell with Vanessa Redgrave. Over the religious sadism, IIRC.

Phantasm. You WILL cover your eyes watching this movie.

Dr. Who episodes "Are you my Mummy" and "Don't Blink".

The Dead Zone with Christophe Walken. The sense of rushing to the inevitable.

The Lady in White had indeed frightenning scenes for the kid I was (hag-looking ghost at the window always worked for me when I was young) and unsettling ones for anybody (evocation of a little girl being sexually abused, as re-lives by her ghost? shudders).

Still, it is all defused by the happy end, ghost-wise.

It's stange that this film, Lady in White and Woman in Black were made at about the same time. There is a similar scene with a rocking chair and a hag-ghost appearing in the bedroom/at the window of the bedroom.

The film with the ghost dressed in white ends well, because she was not really evil, just sad. The film with the ghost dressed in black ends differently: she is angry and vengeful.

"The Changeling"...one of the creepiest,chilling ghost stories/murder mysteries ever filmed.

The Changeling was epically scary in the theater. I'll never forget that ball bouncing down the stairs to George C. Scott.

I don't think anyone's mentioned "Let the Right One In," yet, a recent Swedish vampire masterpiece with a queer twist (really!) The scenes that don't involve any of the children are tedious, but the rest of the movie is excellent. Avoid the English language remake. And another vote for "The Orphanage". At one point (if you've seen this movie in a theater you'll know which one) my then-partner turned to me and said, "I don't know if I can take any more of this!" Most of it is not especially gory, but is incredibly scary. Don't see it if you live in an old house with lots of unexplained noises.

Not really horror, but a great psychological thriller--"Seance On A Wet Afternoon"

The 1973 version of "The Wicker Man". Christopher Lee even admitted this was his favorite of all the movies he ever made. Avoid the shitty Nic Cage re-make.

Agree w/ others on "The Innocents" "Repulsion" and the under rated gems "Horror Hotel" and "Burn, Witch, Burn"

Please DO NOT confuse "Horror Hotel" with "Motel Hell". The latter is a pretty funny, campy gore fest starring Rory Calhoun and Nancy Parsons( aka Beulah Ballbricker from "Porky's")

Another vote for ALIEN. Extremely well made, and at the time I first saw it ALIENS also worked extremely well.

Ditto for the 1978 BODY SNATCHERS and ROSEMARY'S BABY. The final scenes of both upset me more than anything I can remember.

I'd add the 1979 DRACULA with Langella for the scene where he crawls the wall and scratches on the window. As a kid I saw this and didn't sleep for a long time. NOSFERATU and the Herzog remake are equally creepy.

PSYCHO still works for me, especially due to the last 15 minutes.

I'd say THE DARK KNIGHT qualifies despite the last 20 minutes or so. It should have ended up with a horrifying Arkham Asylum sequence and The Joker breaking out of there (maybe with Two-Face's help) but up until the Joker's capture it's as dark as they come.

Gargoyles (1972) with Bernie Casey, Cornel West, Jennifer Salt and Scott Glenn, AND Grayson Hall, one of my favorites from TV's Dark Shadows. Anthropologist stumbles into confrontation with gargoyles, of course bringing his daughter along. Melting green candle wax titles aside, it had some truly terrifying moments and was actually poignant. Special effects on the gargoyles was extremely good, Stan Winston was pat of the makeup crew, went on to Aliens, Predator, Terminator and Jurassic Park. The makeup was what made this movie move out of the camp arena into a movie I will always remember.

You're both mixed up. There were two separate TZ episodes: one including a child who talks to his grandmother on a toy phone. The other has an old woman whose dead husband is calling her from the grave into which the downed phone line is running. I have no idea where the babysitter came from (maybe "When a Stranger Calls").
