What's your favorite horror movie and why? Also, love to hear new suggestions as I'm a huge horror fan. My favorites are, original Halloween and original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
watch Sinister. I just watched it recently. and that movie is FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKED up.
I dont necessarily have a favorite series. Just a fan of the genre overall. If i read that a new one has come out thats good, ill usually give it a watch, but usually at home because all my friends are pussies and are not fans.
Dead alive is a classic along with the evil dead, Sinister I watched In the theaters and really enjoyed it. Slashers are the best, I collect horror. I just got Intruder and stoked to watch it, Stage Fright was also great. Black Christmas is another favorite
1. The Exorcist
2. Evil Dead Trilogy
3. The Ring
4. Tie between Ringu and Ju-on (Yeah I liked the American version of Ring more, big whoop, wanna fight about it?)
5. Dead Silence
6. The Omen (Original)
8. Pet Semetary
Honorable Mentions: Nightmare On Elm Street (original), The Descent, Saw, and Poltergeist (not a true horror movie, but worth mentioning), White Noise
I am sure I forgot a ton, and my list changes constantly.
Remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."
To all you Jason fans, Im with you.. Friday the 13th part 6 was the best Jason ever. I like the original Halloween, Sinister, New Dawn of the Dead and Exorcism of Emily Rose are good ones..
I'm more into creature features, always have been.
So; John Carpenter's The Thing (1982)
Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) an oldy but a goody.
or any good Zombie Flick.I Complete Games!!!!
The Thing. Great suspense, an alien that isn't humanoid, great acting.
Paypal is the Devil
More psychological-horror but Frailty is great.
Resurrection was a pretty good movie. It came out around 1999-2000.
Out of most of the recently released stuff I really enjoyed Insidious. I don't know, maybe you could put it under the thriller genre instead. I'm glad they're making a part two and that the same writer and director are involved.
If we're talking all time I'll go with The Thing.

I gotta go with TCM for sure. I can't wait for the new one to come out.
Message me if you would like me to buy you something off Amazon with my Prime!
You best stop trollin. Not sure why, but there are 2 topics so it must be srs.
So many of the films you guys list are camp. Let's see some serious horror films...
I hate playing the favorites game, but if you want to watch something seriously fudging creepy watch Sauna. Finnish horror set in 1595.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1124394/?ref_=fn_al_tt...
28 Days Later, Cabin in the Woods, The Ring, Paranormal Activity 1-3, The Thing, and Evil Dead 2 (1st was okay, but I didn't like Army of Darkness).
I'm pretty sure it's illegal to not like Army of Darkness.
The Exorcist is my favorite.
3 movies scarred me as a kid:
Child's Play - Threw my My Buddy doll away after that crap.
Poltergeist 2 - The demon and the old preacher.
Pet Cemetery - This dog...
The August Underground movies are pointless, maybe worth one watch but really bad movies nonetheless.
> From the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre?
> It has to be. That's Jessica Biel right?
That's not the new one.

Top 10 Horror Films.
This list will not contain any remakes. Anyone can take someone else's idea and do it better years later.
1. The Exorcist (1973) - saw this when I was 12 or so. woke up screaming that night. scared the fudge out of me, needless to say.
2. Night of the Living Dead (1968) - just can't have a list without the film that started the whole zombie craze.
3. Psycho (1960) - Probably Hitchcock's finest film, especially considering when this was made it.
4. Jaws (1975) - Taught an entire generation(s) to fear the water.
5. The Ring (2002) - Holy crap this movie scared the bejesus out of me. That chick was just CREEPY as hell.
6. The Shining (1980) - Heeeere's JOHNNY! Who can forget this classic? No one who saw it, that's for sure.
7. A Nightmare on Elmstreet 3 Dream Warriors (1987) - perfected the ANoES formula and the whole kids fighting back thing was great not to mention a KICK ASS Dokken theme song.
8. Evil Dead II (1987) - ok this is a remake, lol, but it's just Raimi perfecting his own film.
9. 28 Days Later (2002) - a fresh take on "zombies" and a good emphasis on the psychology of survival. Read the comics too, they bridge between this and 28 Weeks.
10. Scream (1996) - Genuine horror mixed with all kinds of in-jokes and horror references, who could not love this?
That's cause it's snuff, and it is not even that good IIRC. More-so just shock value over anything else.
It's not snuff in the sense that real people get killed, but it's still snuff.
Forgot one for Honorable Mentions...
Blair Witch Project - this movie was pretty great for a little budget "indie" film. Scared the crap out of me.
Some other ones that I go back to a lot are:
Return of the Living Dead
Demons 1 & 2
Night of the Demons
The Fly (1986)
