What is your favorite horror movies, if any. What kinds do you prefer?
I pissed my pants watching Ringu! Japanese horror is the best because it features nubile girls and copious amounts of blood.
Not to dis Japanese horror, but there are other countries which produce horror featuring nubile girls and copious amounts of blood. Hell, America is one of them, and recieves criticism for it from "serious" horror fans who think they are too good for gore and beautiful ladies.
The scariest movie I've ever seen was John Carpenter's "Prince of Darkness." It scared me in the same way Ring did, only much moreso.
I watched PoD in BROAD DAYLIGHT, on an afternoon, with window glare reflecting off the TV screen. That night, in order to sleep, I had to close the bathroom door, close my bedroom door, and leave my closet door open with the closet light on.
Can you name some of these good ("good") American horror films? I only know about the notoriously bad ones.
Good depends on what your criteria for an enjoyable horror movie is. If you're criteria is simply nubile ladies and copious amounts of blood, the standard template for a slasher film should suffice, the bloodier, the better. Bloody Murder 2 has a decent quantity of blood, although it has more gore and violence than blood, and more than one attractive female, in varying stages of undress. The plot can leave something to be desired, but plot wasn't listed as a significant criteria.
OK. I've never seen an american horror film--- the trailers turn me off-- so donmai with finding obscure ones.
Hm... I watched this Thai movie called "Shutter." It really scared me, although there was this one part I thought was funny.
A movie I thought was sooo scary that I couldn't watch it during the day was this Chinese film called "The Eye."
None. I've never liked horror movies, and never understood why people like to watch them.
I like horror movies and I don't know why I like them or why other people like them. Stephen King once wrote something about horror and comedy being the hardest kinds of liturature to write. I have no idea if it's actually true but I thought of it when considering that my love of horror films is linked to my love of comedies.
Best horror: Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980), The Ring (2002), Resident Evil (2002), Stephen King's IT (2002)
^ actually I meant "IT (1990"
The original, b/w "Night of the Living Dead" was awesome. No other zombie movie compares...
Both Dawn of the Dead movies are superior, in my opinion. At least as zombie movies, maybe not as horror.
zombies are cool but dawn of the dead was BORING. it wasn't bad enough to be funny, but not good enough to be good.
Anyone from Halifax Nova Scotia know where to get Bloodsucking Freaks. I Google'd for screenshots and it had the most coious amounts of blood and nubile women I have ever witnessed.
I love Asian Horror. Ive seen A Tale of Two Sisters, Battle Royale, Dark Water, Spider Forest, Grudge 1 and 2, Kairo, Chakushin Ari 1 and 2, Ringu 1, Ringu 2, Rasen, Ringu 0, Suicide Circle, Shutter, Jian Gui 1 and 2, Uzumaki, Audition, Ichi The Killer, Into the Mirror, Dead Friend, Kyua, Three Extremes, Another Heaven, and a few others.
Friday the 13th complete series
Nightmare on Elm Street
Night of the Living Dead Trilogy
Heh, I actually find Asian horrors not scary at all so far. Quite odd, but they really aren't scary. I liked One Missed Call <Chakushin Ari>, becouse it had quite an interesting story. Kairo could have been a bit better - wonder what the remake is going to be like...
I watched The Descent recently (with the original ending). It wasn't SUPER scary (a theatre atmosphere probably would have helped in that department), but it was very interesting. I recommend it.
