forget channel 4/5, its you that knows...yes, YOU...what film...tell me...NOW!
personally my favourite horror films are:
Don't Look Now
Dawn of the Dead
the plot is a bit naff but with all that vivid lighting and overbearing music it all gets rather intense doesn't it...
about the exorcist you cant deny it, it is a classic...it used to scare me alas no longer. the wicker man still does a bit though...
is the most disturbing movie i've seen but in a horribly shite way not in a good horror movie kind of way
on top of i-deserves list i'd recommend:
george romeros martin
day of the dead
night of the living dead (but make sure its this version
hellraiser (the first one)
the bride of frankenstein (not scary anymore, but still a classic)
ring (the japanese version)
halloween (the first one)
is crap though, really really lame and the acting is far below par.
My Little Eye
Probably some more.
people that don't like hellraiser = on my enemies list
the second would be good but its dated really really badly
sorry its AMAZING please don't put me on your enemies list...unless i'm already down.
i reckon that movie wouldve melted my brain
I want to see it bad.
Leaving out the credits where they were supposed to be...genius!
The Blair Witch Project
Don't Look Now
The Wicker Man
reason I thought "It" might have been in that list last night. It's way scarier than The Bone Collector anyway.
Oh yeah, it had a crap ending though.
but it did have a great tagline
Tagline: Two cops on the trail of a brutal killer. They must see as one, they must act as one, they must think as one, before the next victim falls.
Blair Witch Project just for the ending. I saw "It" the other night for the 1st time and the girl in it is the girl from Ginger Snaps and even though there's 14 years between both films she looks no different. And when the bully sees the deadlights and his hair turns white he looks like Jim Jarmusch.
veeeery true. i often do impressions of pennywise. georgie wanna balloon? they floooat.
The 6th Sense above The Shining?!
I don't really like scary films, but i'd say amongst the most disturbing ones i've seen are:
The Ring (Ringu)
Blair Witch Project
such a bad waste of a good book.
the pennywise of the film is SO GOOD that it almost makes up for the crap second 3 hours
Ahh Seth Green. Anyone seen Can't Buy Me Love? He's in that and must be about 8 but still acts everyone else off the screen.
to see this, specifically the bit with the thing that looks like a brain, good music too
either in the OTT gross out Dead or Alive/Ichi The Killer or in pyscologically disturbing Audition
Otherwise Suspiria, The Evil Dead, Wolf Creek, The Omen
is ichi the killer like anyway? i've heard it mentioned before, never bothered to check it out though.
Go and watch The Thing. It's probably the only film I've seen where the special effects look remotely convincing. And it's 20 years old at least! It's also bloody terrifying, which is a bonus. The blood test is pant-shreddingly intense.
kicks ass. The special effects must be the highlight, old school like before CGI.
including a very gross tongue self mutilation
i got well shitted up by "the candyman"
I saw R Point, and thought that was pretty creepy.
Scary films don't normally get to me though. *sigh*
