    Default Let's talk horror!!!

    I absolutely love me some horror flicks. Slasher, gothic, classic, B-movie, grindhouse, ghosts, werewolves, vampires, zombies, come one, come all.

    So many to choose from, but I have to list some of my personal favorites as Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original), Dawn of the Dead (original), Dead/Alive, Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and Cabin Fever.

    With Halloween just around the bend, what are some of your faves?

    The Coen Brothers film? I don't know if I would consider that "horror" - even though the last scene with the dying man and the faucet was kinda creepy.

    The Shining still freaks me out quite a bit (and yes the book is 10x scarier but still).
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    I would expect you to be just as well-versed with What About Bob?:D

    You're right about The Shining. The twins in the hallway is one of the scariest images of all time. And to think King thought Kubrick butchered his book and actually preferred the made for TV drivel from about ten years ago.

    I love Stephen King books, but the guy has no sense when it comes to movies. Every adaptation he has been a part of, save very few gems (Shawshank, Stand by Me) have been DISASTERS. That miniseries of the Stand took one of my favorite novels of all time and turned it into a 4-hour trainwreck. Every time I see a decent adaptation of a Stephen King book (say, Pet Semetary, which was pretty scary) I just assume he didn't write the screenplay.

    Funny you should mention it, but I think the sister in the attic scene in Pet Semetary is also one of the scariest ever committed to celluloid.

    My kind of horror is True Blood (on HBO). scary and yet sexy. :)
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    The Changeling with George C. Scott is still my favorite horror film of all time. I prefer unnerving horror with some subtlety to the slasher/gore variants of the genre. That said, John Carpenter's The Thing is one that will never be bested by modern CGI.

    Of recent films, I think Frailty is the most intelligent horror film I've seen. Guillermo Del Toro's The Devil's Backbone was excellent. And though the American remake was meh, the Pang Brothers' The Eye was an outstanding bit of horror. Contrarily, I think the American version of Ring was infinitely better than the original and made far more sense.

    For classic horror I like the first 3 Friday the 13ths. The third was real cool in the theater:) I was about 12 when I got into them(1982)

    Good call on The Thing. I read an interview with Clive Barker where he made a very interesting point about the scene where they draw blood. How could a series of simple needle pricks generate so much tension and dread? It really cut to the core of something primal in his opinion.

    I have to agree. And with that being said, that's why CGI is never necessary to generate a true scare.

    That third one was in 3-D right? I remember the eye ball popping out through the screen. Don't ask me why my dad decided to torture his young son by subjecting me to this flick at such a young age. Sicko.
    Now that I think of it, I had to watch Jaws 3-D as well. I need therapy.

    Some of you may think its silly but the scene in The Ring, when the girl crawls out of the TV creeped me completely out, I saw The Ring in the theater when it first came out and I have yet to this day to watch it again.

    Yep thats the one! The eye ball was real funny, and the 3D did help with the unexpected things jumping out at you. I think that movie is up there with the most popcorn launched in a movie theater ever.

    "It's Alive" freaked me out as kid! "The Crawling Eye" gave me the willies too! "Prophecy, The Monster Movie" also gave the shivers as a kid. "Hell Raiser" is probably my favorite although "Re-Animator" and "From Beyond" are a lot of fun too!

    The classic, Night of the Living Dead-George Romero. They're coming to get you Barbara!

    Kudo's to Hitchcock for Psycho and I like all the original horror flicks.
    Boris Karloff, Lon Cheney and Bela Lugosi. No CGI or special effects. Just good story telling and acting.

    Re-Animator was priceless. "Herbert West has a very good head on his shoulders... and another one in a dish on his desk." Freakin' classic.

    Brings back memories. Nice to see some of my all-time faves mentioned like The Changeling and The Shining. Re-Animator was hilarious, also loved the Evil Dead series for just pure schlock. And I loved Shaun of the Dead, what a fun movie!

    And since this is an audio forum lets not forget the ridiculous over the top bass heavy DTS version of The Haunting.

    The only horror movie I ever really liked was "Christine". It was just awesome all around! the story was cool, the screen play was well-written and for a horror movie, the acting was actually quite good. That and something about a red, possessed, 1958 Plymouth Fury that could fix itself and played Doo-Wop! It was surreal!


    I'm not a huge fan of horror movies. I usually find them quite predictable. The only one so far that has thrown me for a loop was the original "Saw". It's been diluted through successive gore-fests with less than zero redeeming value. But the original "Saw" went down a path that no one had before IMO. However, the first time I watched it, I totally did not see that ending at all. James Wan is one twisted dude.
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!

    When the ball comes bouncing down the stairs in The Changeling, if your hair doesn't stand up, you're not human.

    I thought maybe you were on a roll until The Thing comment. John Carp's "Thing" is bested by the original friend.

    I think Carpenter would probably agree with you. I like how he has it playing in the background during Halloween. Nice touch before he even attempted the remake.

    I always watch these moves and say "I would kick that monsters ass". But this scene let me know it would be my ass getting kicked. How would you begin to fight that.
