I love Halloween and I love horror movies. Who else is geared up for the season, and what is on the viewing agenda?

 

Graduate school is kicking my ass, but I am trying to make time when possible to watch some good scary flicks. I see Phantasm I and II, Halloween marathon, The Exorcist, Fright Night, Night of the Living Dead, Psycho, Trick r Treat, The Shining, and The Fly in my immediate future.

 

Also, my girlfriend and I are going to Carmike in Greenville, NC to see the 35th anniversary release of Halloween. Should be awesome to see on the big screen.

Good list. Have seen most and liked them.

'Sinister' is the best I've seen in a while.

Best ever? Probably 'The Ring' or 'The Grudge'.

I just saw the Conjuring the other night and liked it. Im a sucker for biblical/supernatural types. I always liked The Omen

I've actually lucked into a girlfriend who likes horror movies as much as I do.

 

About every other woman I've dated would have described their movie tastes as "I like everything except scary movies".

I personally felt that the Grudge was meh. The Conjuring was fantastic. Sinister also has some moments that stick with you.

Insidious was super creepy for me because I had vivid night terrors as a kid.

Insidious and sinister were both creepy in their own way. Insidious because the score/music direction that movie had was amazing and insidious for those creepy home movies thing.

The Exorcist and The Shining scared the living crap out of me when I was a kid.  I still steer clear of The Exorcist when it's on TV...not because it's bad but because it just creeps me out.

I grew up kinda numb to scary movies. My mom was a huge horror fan so I spent many a weekend watching all sorts of slasher flicks.
The weird thing was that the ones that were supposed to be funny (The Evil Dead series, House, etc) were the only ones that scared me when I was young.

I love the Psycho movies - not the least bit scary, but for the most part, well written. The original Halloween is still my favorite slasher flick of all time.

Some of the supernatural horror movies give me the chills now. I liked the original Omen more than the remake.

Classics: The original Halloween, The Shining, and the first Nightmare On Elm Street.

 

The Conjuring is very good, Insidious 1 was good (meh on the sequel), and Sinister I enjoyed (ending could have been better).

 

I didn't even realize Halloween was going to be showing at some local theaters, might have to see that.
