My Top 5

5) 28 Days Later

4) The Strangers

3) Audition

2) Funny Games

1) A Nightmare On Elm Street


Swerb, based on you like of Oldboy and Audition, you gotta watch I Saw The Devil. The villain is the protagonist from Oldboy.

I've always like the simplicity of Halloween, the Shining, Exorcist and Silence of the Lambs...plus they offer more of a feeling like it could actually happen. Alien is awesome but I consider it more sci-fi than horror.

Neither is The Silence Of The Lambs, DU... Alien is sci-fi,but at it's core it's really just a monster movie. Scary monster + trapped in a confined space with nowhere to run. It also uses pieces of typical haunted house scenario.

Absolutely. A good horror flick is one of the highest arts in film. It's easy to make people laugh. It's hard to make people scared nowadays with our extreme cynicism. It's also the most disrespected genre by asswipe elitist movie review tards.

Since you bring up shitty politics...

I gotta throw "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1956 version) into the conversation. It has scared the bejesus out of me for 55 years now -- and I'm not even factoring in its allusions to Crazy Joe McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee hearings of 1954.

The horror movies of the 50's were mainly about Commies and giant bugs. The dawn of the atomic age, I guess everyone thought we would have giant spiders and ants running around after the testing.

The Thing (the one with Kurt Russell).

And, Erie... Blair Witch Project? When was the last time you watched that? Just think your opinion might change if you watched it now... That Roethlisberger goes on my Top 10 Worst list, crappy mockumentary bullshit, stupid fucks can't find their way out of the vast wilderness of the Maryland woods... "ahhhh! We're lost!" Well, follow the stream then if you keep going in circles, you fucktards.

Them dying was the only good part. More stupid people should die.

Uhhhh.... Part of the story in The Blair Witch Project was the idea that the woods were fucking with them, they never got anywhere because the witch wasn't letting them leave. Also it's the kind of thing you would expect to happen to 3 college kids with no real experience in the woods. Most people couldn't find their way out. As you walk with no clear path you tend to drift to your dominant side, left or right.

Without a basic knowledge of land navigation ( witch I doubt three College film makers would have , unless they spent some time in the ROTC) getting lost in the Maryland wildeness would not be hard. It all comes down to knowing your cardinal directions and having some idea in what direction the nearest hardball is. Streams meander and fork off, that could get very confusing without a map.

Yeah, all that...and also the evil witch that magically prevented them from leaving. Which is kind of the point of the whole movie.

These were not 3 people who got lost in the woods. These were 3 people who were trapped in the woods by something inhuman and evil. Something that can visit upon you terrors unimaginable and from which you cannot escape. Maybe it seems silly now, but back then it was a good and fairly original idea. And it was very effective, provided you allow yourself to be affected by it.

I only saw it once, but it scared the absolute holy hell out of me, no doubt in part because I let it. Why wouldn't I? It was fun.

I saw it opening night when it was still being advertised as "real". The Strangers had one of the scariest scenes I can remember. When Liv Tyler is alone in the house and you can just barely see the masked guy in the background..... just watching her and the camera pans away and back again he's gone. I watched that scene several times wondering "why the hell is that so scary?".

The Strangers is overhyped Bullshit like most anything else made in America anymore.

Hell, Paranormal Activity was as good as it if not better.

And Paranormal Activity is the definition of meh.

Funny Games was way better and I didn't love it like you.

Honestly, you seem to have a huge thing about home invasion horror. Which makes sense to some degree.

Mother;

The level of psychological terror and tension is intense. It's not really gory or "torture porn" (a term I despise), it's more of look at the truly sick people that are out there. It's not so much a true as advertised, it's loosely based on the Keddie Murders.

I also highly suggest Funny Games, if you haven't seen it. The US version is a shot for shot remake of the Austrian one. It has a solid cast Naomi Watts, Tim Roth Michael Pitt (James Darmody from Boardwalk Empire), and Brady Corbet. It"s a unique movie that "breaks the fouth wall" at one point and has the coldest ending to a horror movie i've seen.

You should put a list up, fucko.

Would you have to scour the web to find what the "smart" hipster people think is cool and formulate your list that way?

I actually agree w/ a lot of your list but I separate new and

I'd add High Tension to a list w/ the open caveat that the ending is the worst piece of shit ever.

28 Days Later was great.

Honestly, out of the "modern" stuff, 28, Audition and High Tension in no order.

The Decent is close for the newer movies but in the next tier down. There is something else from the newer ones on the tip of my tongue but I can't come up with it.

Then pick a couple of the classics, I have trouble comparing them to new stuff but Rosemary's Baby, Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Halloween, etc...

(Paranormal, for a stupid every year series is solid, but it's not top anything.

The "twist" ending in High Tension was shit. It's a prime example of a director either trying to be too cute or tinkering with their own work. Killing the guy with a damn desk was one of my favorite movie deaths ever.

There's a pretty twisted movie called The Poughkeepsie Tapes that I enjoyed. Low budget "found footage" combined with an fake documentary style. Is is great? No, but it's a interesting attempt to look into the mind of a serial killer. I've seen the hyped Grave Encounters and thought it was bland at best, the ghosts look kinda cool though. It's Blair Witch in a old mental asylum..... just without the originality.

Oh and Funny Games is in the Decent tier. I wish I could remember the other damn movie I'm thinking of.

I'll look into your other guys.

I've always like your takes on horror, I just think you have a serious fear related to in home torture. And there is nothing judgmental about that, it's understandable.

It's the idea that you're never completely safe. No matter if it's in your home or driving down the street. The creep factor for me with The Strangers, is the idea of someone watching you. It's a pair of eyes and you have no clue what's going on behind them. I think everyone fears it subconsciously. That's why some people buy alarms, guns, and guard dogs.

Certain scenes in movies are just scary to me. The church scene in 28 Days Later seeing those infected people just sitting in the pews, then the way Boyle shot them coming up the stairs. I may hate a movie, but love certain scenes. The first half of Insidious was like that, but they ruined it the last half.

I always prefer tension to gore. Anyone can make a slasher movie, it takes skill to give an audience the feeling of actual fear and dread. And I agree, American horror movies have become re-hash after re-hash. The Europeans and Asians are still trying new things. Then we remake them into shit Hollywood movies.

Miike made what I consider to be the strangest movie I've ever seen Gozu. It's like an acid trip gone horribly wrong.

Dog Soldiers is a good hidden gem. Probably my favorite werewolf movie.... although Silver Bullet will always have a special place in my heart due to its sheer 80'sness

My whole point is that the plot is "retarded". That people wandering into the woods and going in circles because of "witches" is "retarded". That anyone buying that kind of "bullshit" is "retarded".

Not really sure what part of my view that "that movie is retarded and you have to be retarded to like it" is hard to "get".

Hey dumbass, the reason it's scary is because it's real. Didn't you see the part where they talked about finding the footage? That was the footage shot by the real students.

So the plot is pretty much IN YOUR FACE douche.

Cheers Mother. I stand corrected. :cheers:

I actually know one guy who contended that the movie was real for a full 5 years afterwards. He was so confident that we made a bet. I finally begged him to look it up online.

He bought me beers for a month after that.

You need to show that guy Cannibal Holocaust. You might never have to buy a beer again.

By the way, complaints about Paranormal Activity (I've only seen the first):

1. Uh, close the door.

2. Maybe sleep in shifts.

3. Maybe have some friend come over and watch the house while you're sleeping.

4. Maybe leave the house (yeah, I know the "demon" was supposed to "follow them", but maybe test out that theory, hmmmm?)

5. Demons are stupid.

I just want to make sure I understand your point.

The movie is about 3 dumb kids who decide to saunter off into the woods to search for a witch (which is retarded) they think is bullshit. They start seeing and hearing weird shit and find their compass isn't working and no matter how long they walk they can't get out (this is also retarded). They then start really getting fucked with by an unknown entity, which could be deduced from the title as the same witch they didn't believe existed (retarded). The only people who could enjoy such a film are retards who think that kids could possibly get lost in the woods in Maryland, or believe the plot line the witch has used the woods as a trap from which they can't escape is a good part of the movie.

Is that it?

Yeah, Hiko, you should watch that..... unless you're an animal lover. It's the grandfather of the "found footage" genre.

I have a CH t-shirt with the impaled chick.

How would you feel if you invited friends over and you wake to find your demon buddy has carved up your friends like a Walleye in Peek's garage?

Yeah you wouldn't like part 2. You might if you have an inherent fear of robot pool cleaners that are possessed by a demon.

Essentially, my feelings on this are twofold:

1. If you are lost in the woods and possibly getting fucked with by a "witch", then the 2nd time you come to a stream and it seems like maybe you're going in circles, follow said stream down"stream" and maybe you won't be going in circles any longer. Now, if they did that and the stream circled around, I might have more sympathy for their "plight".

2. Don't seem like a complete d-bag, which everyone in that film (except for the "witch") seemed to me. God bless the "witch" for ending them.

Well, that would just validate my theory on getting the fuck out of the house/dumping the boring demon-haunted broad.

Gotta say, if a buddy of mine said "Come over, I think my girlfriend and I are being haunted by a demon", I'd be there with a hand gun and 6 pack in 15 minutes or less.

Especially when it's Thursday morning.

And we all have to work tomorrow.

But I do appreciate being properly identified.
