So far this month I've watched:

The Woman in Black

Session 9

Let The Right One In


House of the Devil


The Innkeepers

I did not care for Insidious, but the rest were all very good and creepy.

Actually I've been catching up on episodes of Sleepy Hollow. I've got one more to watch but the male lead is cute and it's been good horror fun.

other than that I try to watch the old movies Dracula, and the Wolfman are my favorites. Bela and Lon Chaney. Nothing better. Although Frank Langella's Dracula was pretty sexy.

I watched the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street on AMC and the fact that the writers pretty much ripped off the ending dialogue from Freddy VS Jason tells you it wasn't a masterpiece.

"An American Werewolf In London" (1981). My favorite horror movie of all time. My favorite comedy movie of all time. It's one of my ten favorite movies ever made. I saw this movie on opening weekend in '81 and it has been a tradition every Halloween since.

I also love the first "Halloween" (1978) and "Near Dark"(best vampire movie ever) from 1987. "Lost Boys" (1987) was also a hoot. Another great one from the '80s (what a decade for horror!) was "The Howling" from '81 (another terrific werewolf movie).

"The Shining" (1980) is also a tradition. Gotta see it, or it's not Halloween.

The original 'Carrie' was awesome and scary. All the remakes (including the new one) have sucked.

'Cabin in the Woods' is a cool and very unique twist on the horror genre. Scary, gory, and enjoyable. Nice and bloody.

'Alien' I had never seen this movie until last month. I am 18 and have heard my parents and everyone else raving about it all my life. The raves were justified. My favorite movie EVER.

'Aliens' Saw this for the first time yesterday. A great sequel and every bit as good as the original. Scary as fuck.

'War of the Worlds' The one with Tom Cruise. I have never seen the original but I loved this remake. It was scary and the effects were terrific.

'Halloween' The original. I saw the Rob Zombie remake first and thought it was terrible so I was kind of leery about the original. I'm glad I took a chance on it. The original 1978 film ruled in every conceivable way. Awesome!

Psycho The remake was okay but I prefer the original. My parents had this DVD and I was bored one day and decided to compare it to the remake. The original is EPIC! I liked the remake from '98 but the original OWNS it.

My favorite vampire/horror movie of all time is George Romero's "Martin" (made in 1977 and released in U.S. theaters in the Summer of 1978). A terrific film about a young (and hot) guy who thinks he's a vampire. Very scary and very bloody. I saw it when it was first released (I was 12). It is a forgotten classic and one of Romero's best films, second to the original "Night of the Living Dead."

I've been catching a lot of the Fear Fest movies on AMC like the remake of Nightmare on Elm Street (which was terrible) and the Chucky movies (worth only a watch because of Jennifer Tilly)...

The Conjuring was terrifying in the first half and the latter half was meh. Overall, I was disappointed.

One of my all-time favorite Halloween season movies is a creepy old 1948 thriller called 'The Amazing Dr. X' - I always loved that one. I first saw it on late night TV with my dad in the late 1960's. It has been a tradition since.

The original 'Halloween' from '78. The original 'Planet of the Apes' from '68, the original 'Psycho' from '60 and the original 'Fright Night' from '85. Notice how, in almost all cases, the originals were better. One exception: I preferred the 1982 'The Thing' to the original.

by Anonymousreply 6510/22/2013

Litttle Lindsey in the original Halloween was played by Kyle Richards of Real Housewives fame. She had the best line in the movie. I, too. watched it last night on AMC and spent my time critiquing the acting. Jamie Lee and Nancy Kyes who played Annie really were terrible actors. Jamie Lee mumbled all her lines. Like she was afraid to open her mouth. And some of the shitty dialogue sounds improvised. And back in my days as a teen, Annie and Laurie would not have been considered prime dating material. Only P.J. Soles has any personality and acts like a real teenager. Still, the scary parts of the movie hold up. And the score is brilliant. And I love Donald Pleasence. The way the guy who played Michael moved really ratchets up the fear factor. Fucker moved with a purpose!

Are you kidding, R66? Jamie Lee is regarded as THE scream queen for a reason. Her performance in "Halloween" was understated yet brilliant for its realness. She captured the shy, awkward teenage girl with a realness rarely seen in exploitation horror. Now Nancy Loomis on the other hand...

by Anonymousreply 7010/22/2013

I agree with R68. I think Jamie Lee Curtis was perfect in "Halloween", and was very convincing in her role. I knew many girls like her character in my youth. I'm glad they went with her instead of someone like Linda Blair. There was nothing wrong with Linda Blair, but by 1978 she wasn't "the girl next door." Jamie Lee was cute (but not glamorous or sexy) and was believable as "that girl" from down the street.

I agree that Jamie Lee Curtis kicked ass as Laurie Strode in "Halloween." I can't picture anyone else playing that role. She was subdued and believable as "the girl next door." I have always thought she was the perfect choice. I thought she was great in "Halloween II", as well, even though that movie couldn't touch the original.

I like Jamie Lee Curtis and I wish she still made horror movies, instead of those damned yogurt commercials!

I'm watching the original "Halloween" right now. I love it. It's the definitive movie for this time of year. The remake sucked dirty ass. Rob Zombie's version had lots of blood but absolutely NO suspense. The original had very little blood, but the suspense was off-the-charts and was nail-biting. The original was much, much scarier.

I love the original "Halloween" theme song. It's so simple, but soooo effective. Not to mention, they also used my all-time favorite song in the movie, Blue Oyster Cult's "(Don't fear) The Reaper." Jamie Lee Curtis was awesome in the movie and played the part so convincingly. Don Pleasance just rocked it.

I still remember going to see "Halloween" shortly after it opened in the Fall of 1978. I was 13 years old and in the 8th Grade, and my buddies and I went to see the movie at least five times during its first month of release. We loved it.

I recorded it off of HBO around 1979 or 1980 and watched it so many times that I still have it memorized. I have never gotten tired of it.

It's not just my favorite horror movie, it's one of my favorite movies, period!

I just watched an effective little thriller on On DEMAND called "April Fool's Day".

It's kind of an 80's "And Then There Were None" with a lot of unpredictability.

It's not a classic by any means but it does have some clever plot twists and tense moments.

by Anonymousreply 10310/23/2013


Happy to see your inclusion of the 1988 version of "The Blob".

I think it's a grossly underrated action horror film that holds up extremely well. The FX are STILL impressive and much more believable than most CGI.

by Anonymousreply 10410/23/2013

For all of you extolling the acting and screen presence of Jamie Lee Curtis check out her great performance in the underrated and stylish "Terror Train".

by Anonymousreply 10510/23/2013

HALLOWEEN--the original



HALLOWEEN RESURRECTION--Maybe. The only good part is the opening section with Jamie Lee.

THE FOG--It's kind of silly but I like Carpenter's style and the setting of the film. Plus Adrienne Barbeau has never looked hotter. And there's Jamie Lee and Janet.

HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL--the original Plus assorted others. Maybe Mrs. Al Steele in STRAIT-JACKET.

I plan on watching "World War Z" on Halloween. Perhaps a couple of others, as well.

by Anonymousreply 11110/23/2013

I loved "Night of the Creeps" back then. I'll bet I watched it on HBO 20 times back in late '86 or early '87. It was awesome.

"Trick or Treat" was one I had forgotten. It starred Skippy from Family Ties (in a really bad wig). The guy who played the rock star Sammi Curr was gay in real life and died of AIDS a few years later. Ozzy Osbourne played a TV evangelist. That asshole Gene Simmons from Kiss was in it too, but I can't remember who it played.

"Chopping Mall" was silly but great fun.

I may watch "The Purge" on Halloween if it's reasonably priced by then.

Trick-R-Treat is a newer movie than the one with Skippy. It came out sometime in the past few years and it's an anthology.

R97, I like the original Japanese version of Dark Water, very moody, atmospheric and creepy, for me anyhow. There's no blood and gore but it has an eerie, ominous feel to it throughout. The US remake in 2005 is pretty flat and ordinary, but Jennifer Connelly does a fine job playing the mother whose world and mind is slowly coming apart - she's nearly as good as the fantastic Japanese actress in the original.

Re:Halloween: I think Nancy Loomis was perfect in her role as the bitchy friend. I knew girls just like her in 1978. They were bold, not afraid to speak up, selfish and not afraid to admit it, but loyal as a friend. They would tell you the unvarnished truth. Sometimes you wanted someone to tell you the truth ("Do these jeans look ok?" "Hell, no. Not tight enough") and other times you didn't, like when you got a bad haircut. They swore, smoked, drank and didn't give a fuck what anyone thought about it.

And they always had a bf. Their BF may have been pussywhipped, but at least he got steady sex, which was all he cared about.

JLC was "Every Girl," the female teen version of Everyman. A good girl who sometimes did bad things (like smoking a joint) but not often; respectful of adults; insecure; not wanting to draw attention to herself. You knew she wouldn't grow up to be Alcoholic Mom or Thrice Divorced Woman, as her friends might (if they'd lived). JLC paid more attention to other people and to her surroundings instead of being sex-crazed, trash-talking, underaged-drinking hedonists --- as the other male and female teens were --- which is why she survived.

My favorite Halloween movie has always been 1958's "Horror of Dracula" with Christopher Lee (my favorite Dracula). That is the ultimate vampire movie and the ultimate Dracula. It's creepy as hell and always gives me chills. There are other movies I love (Halloween, Night of the Living Dead, The Shining, Near Dark, etc.) but "Horror of Dracula" is the one tradition for me on Halloween.

The Stepfather with Terry O'Quinn. The remake with whimpster Penn Badgley got a 12% on Rotten Tomatoes.

"Sisters" in 1973. It is virtually impossible to replicate 70's grit nowadays. The murders and tone are still quite disturbing.

by Anonymousreply 14110/27/2013

For oldies but goodies, the original version of "The Haunting" is a good one. No blood & gust, but still scary after all these years and light years better than the remake. Another would be "The Legend of Hell House."

"A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master" from 1988.

After this, I'll watch "The Walking Dead." It's been a Sunday, Bloody Sunday in Jeff's little abode.

An obscure B movie from the early 80s called The Children, or sometimes the Children of Ravensback. Saw it on USA's groovy movie Saturdays with that captain dude who would show a lot of B horror movies and the occasional mainstream horror movie.

Anyways The Children creeps me out every time I see it. I think I saw it most recently on Hulu, very hard to find even through torrent websites.
