I don't very well remember my first one, something about dinosaur thing that suddenly appeared from underground and started eating workers. It was in the 2010, i was only seven year old.
What about you? How old was you? Was it scary or nah?



Movie Forums Squirrel Jumper
Animation cannot remember the first, too young, but live action, Back to the Future.



I grew up a horror fan. Canít even remember the first one. I do remember being about 13, realising, Alright, kids, this is what I like, and watching every horror film out there in the next 4 years, 2-3 a day. After that, itís more about Ďkeeping upí with what comes out.



When I was about three, I remember screaming at the ad for Amityville Horror until my parents took me to it. That was probably the first. At least of my conscious life.

Thatís beautiful. I wish you were my child.



Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
Probably The Crawling Eye when I was about four, and yes, I was scared out of my mind.

Oh, horror fan? Name every horror movie.

Yeah, Iíll be here until 2023, probably.

Which I will be anyway.

Happy to discuss favourites, if you like.



The trick is not minding
My first brush with horror films was during the 80ís. The slasher genre was at its peak. In 1984, as I was just turning 7, A Nightmare on Elm St premiered and shook me deeply. I was afraid to fall asleep that night.
Other horror films that left an impact from that decade were: Friday the 13th, Christine, Cujo, Prince of Darkness, The Thing, Gremlins, The Howling (superior to An American Werewolf in London IMO), My Bloody Valentine, The Funhouse, Halloween 2 (almost as good as it predecessor), Return of the Living Dead, Fright Night just to name a handful. *
Even the lesser fair were entertaining in some way: Lifeforce, The Blob remake, The Creepshow anthologies, Pumpkinhead.
It was quite a time to be a horror fan. Special effects had finally caught up.
They didnít match the sophistication of some of the 70ís offerings, but they didnít need to.

Oh, and Childs Play gave me a deep fear of creepy dolls for a short time. After watching it, I preceded to have a nightmare of my sisters doll attacking me in the hallway that I vividly recall even today.
*shudders*
And that doll was incredibly creepy to begin with.

Favourite horror movie? Hmmm... Whenever i hear word horror, there's three movies come to my mind, it's Alien, Final Destination and Scream.
Boy, i still remember how i accidentally switched channel on tv, and, in the other channel, in that exact moment were going Scream. I was home alone and get scared

Lol, same. Maybe that's not very manly, but i had pretty much dolls. My family wasn't very rich, so i don't had boy toys. I liked to play with them and always bring to bed when it was sleep time. Now, after watching good old movies about Chucky, i can't even sleep normally if there's a doll in room with me.

AlŪen is great. Also like Part 2, probably in equal measure.*

Final Destination has a pretty good concept, but I never was a huge fan - could be executed better, I feel. Scream is so meta you canít take it seriously IMO, but not bad.

Alien, yeah, good crap. I like space theme movies, especially horrors. Alien and Predator series still has special place in my heart

I quite like the genre as well. The one I thought could have been so much better was Event Horizon (1997).

And what about you, friend? What movie you can call your favourite?




Psycho, age; too young..
I see your point (I think), but anything pre-Les Yeux sans Visage doesnít register as horror at all in my mind, and we are discussing horror. I do love plenty of silent films and 1930s films when it comes to other genres.

I didn't make a point, but I see the one your making, going by your horror definition, my first one would probably have been The Omen, Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, Poltergeist, De Lift, Christine, or The Thing, seen em all under the age of ten..

It oscillates, but currently, Iíd rank my horror list like this:

Hereditary
Resolution
The Endless (the last two do not count as horror in some peopleís book, but they do in mine).
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Kill List
The Reflecting Skin if we count it as horror.
Possession (1981)

Not really about quality per se, just what speaks to me.
