If you like cheesy and zombies, check out The Dead Next Door. Beyond entertaining. Everyone is named after a horror writer or director (Romero, King), etc.).

I agree. I even liked My Name Is Bruce. The man with the screaming brain not so much but its still Bruce.

Besides the usual classics like Evil Dead, The Thing etc. I always liked the Italian gore trash like Cannibal Holocaust, Antropophagus, Absurd, Fulci's The Beyond, Cannibal Ferox, The House by the Cemetary and so on.

Beyond the Darkness aka Buio Omega stands out there in terms of absolutely terrible actors, a pretty sick plot and some inventive gory scenes... - and it includes a soundtrack by GOBLIN!

Bruce Campbell

Since I'm a James Rolfe fanboy, here's his campy little tribute to the comedic/zombie genre. The practical SFX and editing it fun:

Goblin always come through! I love what they did with Suspiria.

I'm currently downloading Let Me In in the hopes that it will match it's Swedish counterpart. /fingers crossed...

The Italian stuff is great. I saw cannibal holocaust for the first time last year and thought it a genuinely good movie. Europe has a good heritage for horror. Another great spanish flick is La Dia De La Bestia. It was mid 90 and bloody good fun.

Far from a grade A (or even B) movie, but some of you old Whitesnake fans/perverts might remember Tawny Kitan getting naked (if only for a moment) in the ouja board centered Witchboard.

I believe it did, although in a different way.


Chloe Moretz made that movie. She's beyond talented, and I loved it.






And for Bruce Campbell, Buba Ho-Tep was actually one of my favorite roles of his. He was ....ing awesome in that movie.

If I can tear myself away from Mass Effect 3, I'll be watching Dario Argento's Inferno tonight. It's been almost a year since I saw Suspiria and I knew it was a trilogy but I guess I've been too lazy to track down the sequels until now.

Dunno if I would call A Clockwork Orange horror, but it is a favorite of mine. Although Malcolm McDowell did play Dr. Loomis in the (abysmal) Rob Zombie Halloween remakes. He did a pretty good job though.

Watched a movie called Death Spa last night, was surprised at how good it was, considering it was a movie from the 80's that I had never heard of. I thought I had seen ever 80's horror around, love finding new (old) ones. As for movies I've really enjoyed that I don't think were covered in this thread, some great ones are:
Attack the Block
The Caller (really creepy)
Chillerama (hilarious!)
Cold Prey trilogy (German films, all amazing)
End of the Line
Family (I think it's a Masters of Horror, it has George Wendt)
House on Sorority Row (1983)
Lucky (with The Hanks Jr.)
Splinter (great, GREAT creature flick)
Sweatshop (brutal)
Teeth (cross your legs)
Trick R Treat
Yellow Brick Road (a bit drawn out, but quite unnerving)

I'm not a big Teeth fan but i'll be damned if it doesn't creep me out lol
I love Trick R Treat to death, I was so surprised to see a newer movie that nails the Halloween atmosphere while pulling off creepshow-esque story telling

I'll have to check out the rest on your list, sounds promising!

My favorite horror movie of all time has to be the original Halloween. The fact that Carpenter was able to basically create the template for the Slasher genre on such a small budget and make a block buster film with such a huge following is astounding to me.
Although it is a remake (however the original has been seen by very few people as it was only aired twice on tv and getting a copy is next to impossible) The Woman in Black was an amazing classic style horror movie. I like how it was able to create fear, suspense, and a dman creepy atmosphere without using ridiculous amounts of blood (something that i feel most modern horror films use as a crutch to carry a shitty plot). I'm hoping that the success this movie recieved will lead to revival of sorts and we will see more movies in that same vien.
I'm also wating patiently for Marilyn Manson's Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll to finally be released. I've been hearing that they hired a magician/ illusionist to handle all the special effects, as opposed to going with cgi and what not.

Watched Horror of Dracula and Deadgirl over the past few days and both rocked. I have season 1 of Tales from the Crypt in the mix too. Gotta keep it campy.

Come on guys I know there are some horror movie buffs out there.
Since my last post I've watched a few things:
The Surgeon - crap
The Faculty - why the hell do I like this movie so much?
Monster Squad - amazing, why did it take me so long to see this
The Lost Boys - always thought this movie would suck, I really liked it and am now awaiting "Near Dark" in the mail since I'm on a vamp binge
The Mummy - good 'ol Hammer
Witchfinder General - Peter Vincent badassery as always
The Stepfather - Terry O'Quinn killed it in this performance. Tasteful use of gore
NOES 5 - horrible
NOES 6 - worse
NOES: New Nightmare - Amazing. What the hell happened to the last two?
The Cabin in the Woods - Homage to Evil Dead and many others, thought it was quite original for a movie in this day and age
Gingerdead man 3 - oh my. Good for laughs only.
The Graveyard Shift - Andrew Divoff not being Wishmaster? I love Divoff, loved the movie and the asshole boss that plays the dad in Monster squad
The Entity - simply one of the best horror movies ever made
The Asphyx - Loved it. Thoughtful horror, and scary at times.
....more to come! I watch on average 1 a day if I can.

Devils rejects? Is this considered horror? I love that movie.

Phantasm scared the holy loving shit out of me as a kid. For some reason when that old creepy bastard lift that coffin all by himself that stuck in my brain and just flipped my lid haha. My older brother used to love to get these movies and make me watch them and I'd be freaking out all damn night Good times though. Phantasm and for some reason the original American werewolf In London scared the shit out of me to when I was a young kid. Now I find it hilarious, but still a great flick.

You know ive never liked devils rejects or any of the rob zombie movies except house of 1000 corpses. Its a blatant texas chainsaw massacre rip-off at times, but i think it manages to be original. I love that coffin scene in phantasm too! Gotta love the tall man.
