I don't really like the genre.

I love the Exorcist but don't really see it as a horror, more of a religious drama.

I'm a big fan of American Werewolf in London but that's more of a comedy.

I guess Candyman would be my favourite out and out horror.
I couldn't believe that she knew my name. Some of my best friends didn't know my name.

Quite a few of my favorite horror movies are actually horror/comedies... movies like the Evil Dead series (including Army of Darkness), Dead Alive, and the Return of the Living Dead series are frickin' hilarious, but heavy on the gore as well.

A list in no particular order:

The Exorcist, Blair Witch Project, Rosemary's Baby, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Return of the Living Dead, Night of the Living Dead, Psycho, Halloween, The Shining, Dead Alive, Evil Dead 1&2, Army of Darkness, The Birds, Opera, The Omen, Fright Night, Alien, Phantasm, The Thing, Blair Witch Project... and the list goes on

yea i have seen most of them, they are cool!

My kind of thread...

One of the reasons I started my own board was to talk horror... For some macabre reason I just love the stuff and couldn't get enough of it here

I ain't gettin' in no fryer!
House On Haunted Hill is one I like, simply because I can watch it over and over again and always get a kick out of it.

Some movies you can only watch once and then the magic is gone, with this one, I can watch it over and over. One thing that sucks about horror movies today is a lot of them don't have that magic that makes them horror movies. Sure you might jump a couple of times, but I feel you have to be able to watch it more than once and still jump each time, like you're watching it for the first time.

Mischief. Mayhem. Soap.
I rarely watch horror, so I'd have to say the Japanese film, Ring.

Don't even get me started on the The Ring... I had a terrible experience trying to find that one

I doubt we would've seen the likes of it on NZ shores if it weren't for the film festival it screened at.

I've never even heard of it, well...not until some of you brought it up a while back. I might just have to see if I can track it down.

Woody Allen is married to her.

Oh yeah, THAT'S the one I'm thinking of. I apologize for the faux pas.

No, that's Rosemary's Adopted Baby, a different and altogether creepier tale.
