Slugs (1988) by Juan Piquer Simůn

Slither (2006) by James Gunn

I like the older ones.

Does The Host count as a horror film? I guess it is, I just thought of it as a creature feature, which I see as a genre unto itself.

Yeah i guess so... but its a pretty broad horror list ive put together or at least a broad definition of the horror genre.

You could also have slasher movies as a genre as well.



Yep, I see The Host as a Horror/Creature(as Honeykid mentioned), it's a sub genre of Horror or Science Fiction: Creature Feature if that's what you want to call it.

Slasher films are also a sub genre of Horror.



Pool, Cable, Wi-Fi, Queen Sized Beds, Prostitutes
I love Return of the Living Dead. I was really liking The Host but it kind of died out for me-still looking forward to part 2. Dolls and It's Alive are cool films. For me, Drag Me to Hell and Friday the 13th are just ok, but I can't argue with their placement on your list at all. Looking forward to the rest!



+rep for Drag me to Hell

Even though it got ridicolous at the end

I'm a big fan of Bong Joon-Ho and I love The Host. I haven't seen Dolls or Slugs, but the rest of them I like alot, especially Return of the Living Dead.



Even though it got ridicolous at the end
The thought the ending was fantastic, if you mean the very very end. Loved Drag Me To Hell, back to what Raimi does best.

Dead Ringers (1988) by David Cronenberg



Child's Play is a funny one really.
It got banned in Britain not long after it was released.

Apparently it was "going to encourage violence in children"... even though it was a rated 18 adult film available only in cinemas at that time.
There were big protests about it.

Weird.



I've seen The Human Centipede and Childs Play, hated both of them.
Well imo they are good but they can be described as guilty pleasures

Childs Play is a movie i semi-regularly revisit (maybe once a year or so)

I loved The Human Centipede when it came out and i showed it to the students of a vocational training school on a camping trip. It was a pretty big hit. Besides that i actually have a good laugh when i see it.



Child's Play is a funny one really.
It got banned in Britain not long after it was released.
None of the Child's Play films were actually banned in Britain. Even Child's Play 3 that was in the media a lot because of the James Bulger case, even though there was nothing to prove the killers had actually seen it...

Poltergeist, Funny Games, The Birds, and An American Werewolf in London are great films. There are a few I didn't like at all though, like The Omen. I already have Little Otik, Henry, and Bride of Frankenstien as films I want to watch, and Der Todesking looks like something I'd like.
