Doing some scary movie watching

48 posts in this topic

Forgot the other one I watched earlier today.

"The Raven" with John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe. Again, more thriller than horror, but maybe the best of the bunch.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

I use to do the same thing as this kid in the rain ( make a paper boat and have it travel down to the drainage) suffice it to say i never did it again after this

:lol:

Fewdio's short clips are pretty good ("Bedfellows" and "Anniversary" are quite clever). That one? If you don't already have a clown phobia, it'll give you one.

Couldda been worse though. I couldda queued up the clown from "Poltergeist" :blink:

(though after watching "Scary Movie 2" that scene kinda lost its bite for me) :wacko:

'Preciate the recommendations, Gents.. A good scary movie is hard to find these days, most are just too campy or over the top to actually scare you. The Strangers was the last scary flick I saw that I liked, that was scary...

Pennywise is a chump...

Finally caught "Event Horizon" with Laurence Fishburne and Sam Neill tonight. Been meaning to for a while but hadn't done so till now.

One or two moments of 'huh' and a ridiculously stereotyped black guy as a minor character, but overall a very solid flick. Will probably buy it at some point (taped it off HDNet last night on my DVR).

To those on here who previously recommended this as a good scary movie, thanks. You were very right.

watched Slither again the other night... which is great and disgusting... also The Host is amazing if you aren't a baby about subtitles.

It was pretty good. Horror movies in which characters find footage of something - and leads to the story is always creepy (if done right).

If you like found footage horror, check out V/H/S. it's on Netflix and at redbox right now. I'm a big horror movie fan and really liked it.

It's an anthology so there are about 5 or 6 short films in the movie. The premise is these guys break into a creepy house and find all these old VHS tapes. On each tape is some really weird and scary stuff. Each tape was made by a different director so they each have their own style. Most of them are done very well and add a unique spin to the cliched found footage genre. I would definitely recommend giving it a watch.

Also, a sequel premiered at movie festivals last year and is supposedly way better than this one. I can't wait to see it.

A good Throwback-Style Horror Movie that was on Netflix streaming is Trick or Treat(not the one with Alice Cooper) has a lot of Tales from the darkside type story telling with decent actors in it.

Most horror movies are dissapointing so Im impressed by the unapologetic hard R Evil Dead remake.

The Strangers was good if you have not seen it and the first half of Insidious. The Possession (Sam Rami produced)was decent but has similar girl possessed type stuff..just well executed.
