Just want to say that, for me, a horror need not be scary. It just needs that certain horror atmosphere I'm sure lots of you feel the same way, but I just wanted to clear that up. Anyway...

In no order:

The Shining
Alien
Evil Dead (Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell) - I would say Evil Dead 2 as well but I classify it more as a dark comedy.
The Ring
28 Days Later
Silence of the Lambs
Carrie
One of the Dracula films but can't remember which
Sixth Sense (hmm... maybe not a horror but I liked it & it's got horror elements)
..can't think of any more :confused:

I really like psychological horrors but there don't seem to be too many of them about. Can anyone recommend any?

I loved Saw I and II. Jeepers Creepers were pathetically poor, both of them.
I thought the beginning to Jeepers Creepers I was so promising! But after the first 20 minutes or so it let us all down.

I saw the Chainsaw Massacre yesterday, the new one, and I thought it was horrible!!! So ****ing gross. I mean...I like horror but I thought it was just gross. bleah. have not stopped thinking about it since. I'm wondering though...is the footage at the beginning and end of the movie real?

The Ring is very scary also and I liked it...also Darkwaters.I also liked From Dusk till Dawn if that is considered to be a horror.

Have you seen the original - Manhunter? I thought it was good, but Red Dragon was better.

If we were talking about horrors I generally enjoy then I'd be tempted to put up cheese such as Flesh-Eating Mothers but I imagine the thread is more about horrors of good quality so I'll leave out most of my Troma and Vipco choices.

In no particular order:
Freaks
Child's Play
Puppetmaster (okay not great quality but I like it)
Hellraiser 2
Nightmare on Elm Street
Rosemary's Baby
Nosferatu
Evil Dead (okay so it is kind of gory and cheesy...but it's still good stuff)
Psycho
Day of the Dead

is the footage at the beginning and end of the movie real?
No, they always push that 'based on a true story' but it's not true with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

And with me I didn't find the original at all gory, people tend to think it is but when you think about it you don't *see* that much.
And the remake was a mess to me, the original didn't need to be remade either.

Okay:

1: The Shining (Obviously the greatest)
2: Alien
3: The Birds (Yes, much scarier and tense than Psycho)
4: The Fly (Sublimely terrifying gore flick)
5: Psycho
6: Shivers (No other film has given me a nightmare before)
7: The Evil Dead (Although I almost thought it was a comedy)
8: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
9: Halloween
10: The Omen (Chilling)

Note: I'd have put The Silence of the Lambs at the top, but I disagree with it being categorised as horror. It's not scary, it's just an excellent cop thriller. And one of the best films ever made. Same goes for Se7en, excellent but not horror. Well in my opinion...

^that's my list make of it what you want...

7: The Evil Dead (Although I almost thought it was a comedy)
Sam Raimi could never make a truly scary horror because he always has an element of comedy in his movies. Evil Dead 2 and AoD obviously are far more obviously going for laughs, but I think Evil Dead 1 is still a horror-comedy really.

Errr... Thanks. I know.

He's good. Even kept an element of comedy in Spiderman... True fun guy...

But I think Bruce Campbell rubbed off his funny side too, anyone who can make Bubba Ho-Tep that funny, must be humourous...

Silent hill........i watched it on Saturday night and it was foggy as well! That sh*t me up and i ended up going to bed at 4am after staying awake to install (well try to install) linux! The film is very close to the game itself.

Not in any order...

The Ring (original)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Original)
Halloween (just because i had to study it and love the connections to Psycho)
Psycho
Wes Cravens New Nightmare (and all the Nightmare on Elm Street films really)
Pet Cemetary (Got to love Steven King!)
The Shining
Silence of the Lambs (not really horror, but all three were great!)
Evil Dead
28 Days Later

I love old horror movies, they may not be totally scary, but they are so wonderfully put together without all this high tech digital stuff. Wish i could watch more, but my friends and boyfriend hate horror movies, and i'm not great with watching them alone.
