Every horror fan knows the early 70's to late 80's was the golden age of cinema horror. Movies like Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Last House on the Left, Black Christmas, The Exorcist, Friday the 13th, and The Thing defined the face of horror during this period and forever altered what we as fans expect in a horror movie. Sadly, the making of memorable and frightening horror films are much less frequent these days. It seems the state of horror today is an endless stream of (mostly terrible) remakes of the classics. As a horror movie collector I'm always keeping an eye out for the next great gem. Every kind of media and time period of horror discussion is welcome here and I realize that terms like "best" and "greatest" are subjective; but know that my main aim is to find those truly original and classic horror films that really enrich the genre. Remakes as stated, are frowned upon but as usual, there are always exceptions. As an example of my taste I'll include some of my favorites other than those mentioned earlier: From Beyond Fright Night Re-Animator Demons Poltergeist (I and II) Friday the 13th (Parts 1-6) Martyrs High Tension Halloween (1-4) The Ugly The Evil Dead (I and II) I Spit on Your Grave Maniac Cop Scanners The Fly American Psycho Hellraiser The Audition Suspiria Scream (1-4) Creepshow Phantasm (I and II) Night/Dawn/Day of the Dead Psycho Dead Alive On a side note I have to say that years of watching and collecting horror movies have yielded quite a few duds, some of which it would be criminal not to mention, as they are so bad that you can't seem to look away. This is another joy of being a horror fan, "bad" horror movies are sometimes some of the most fun to watch. For example: Troll 2 Rumpelstiltskin Devon's Ghost: Legend of the Bloody Boy (featuring 2 original power rangers... ) Leprechaun 4: In Space You get the idea. I'd love to hear of some more of these horror movie blunders just for laughs. Lastly, I want to mention that I'm not a big exploitation fan unless it actually creates elevation in the movie (ie Martyrs), so if you're into stuff like "A Serbian Film" this probably isnt the place for that. Cheers!
