What is your favorite horror movie?

What is your favorite horror movie? My favorite horror movie is Saw and Saw2.
activate
I agree, Saw 2 was really grousome. The girl that got her hands caught in the trap.. Gotta feel sorry for her.

Anyway House Of Wax was good. So was my personal favourite Halloween 2
Scaramanga
Hmmm, it's hard to beat the zombie cult film, Night of the Living Dead. Also, you can't go wrong with the Kubrick classic, The Shining.

A lot of what I see in these modern horror films consist of nothing more than a string of "bugaboo" pop-out moments punctuated by scenes of increasingly ridiculous gore. Horror is in the mind, not the viscera.

uhh ive seen lot of horrors here are few my fav Smile hellriser IV, saw both parts, exorcism of emily rose, the jacket, cube both parts nad few other but i cant remember Razz im waiting to watch new horror Hostel Very Happy

shocker

I just recently started to watch horror movies, not a daily thing for me. I think Saw and Saw2 where probably the first two ones i have watched by choice in a long time. Any other suggestions to good ones that are like those? Because there are some which are just pure scary no storyline, but i need a storyline. thanks
skank
wow, i'm the biggest horror movie junkie on the planet. my favorites : house of wax, saw, saw 2, house of 1000 corpses, and the devil's rejects. i'm way too effing sadistic.

I prefer the Asian ones, especially:

"Janghwa, Hongryeon" (Korean - the title is the names of two girls) - the title in the West tends to be translated into "A Tale of Two Sisters". Has some edge-of-your-seat scares and great tension throughout Smile Plus a neat story.

"Oodishon" (Japanese - title is a Japanese pronunciation of "Audition") - anyone who liked Saw (and a lot of people who didn't) should see this. Some will find the start slow, but it truely has some of the most gut wrenchingly horrible scenes to watch. AND is stylishly directed Smile

"Honogurai mizu no soko kara" (Japanese - title literally means "From the depths of the murky water") - the original "Dark Water". "Original" in this case translates to "much better".

Audition and Tale of Two Sisters were both great. Audition mostly because it managed to get its message across without the need to resort to the supernatural. Plus it was a complete departure of style for director Takeshi Miike as he usually prefers to make action films such as Dead or Alive or Ichi the Killer.

Ring (or Ringu now that everyone seems to want to call it by its Japanese title thanks to the remake) was also good, although Ring 2 was fairly watered down in terms of horror and Ring 0 was just godawful dirge.

The Eye was also a good film but not great horror, as the only truly scary part was one moment in a lift, the rest of the film didn't have the same claustrophobic nervous tension.

In terms of Western made films, My Little Eye was a well made film done in a mock up of a Big Brother style reality show (and the interactive mode on the DVD is the single greatest use of the medium ever) Also the old classics such as Straw Dogs and The Wicker Man are also great.

Yeah, I never really cared that much for Ichi the Killer. Miike has a way of thinking up scenes of grotesque violence, but never found any other film of his that was disturbing in the way Audition was. Smile

Speaking of disturbing (but in a (only somewhat) different way), though the film itself isn't really horror, the ending of Nagisa Oshima's "Ai no corrida" is horrific in its own right (to at least one half of the audience) - and can still cause a reaction even amongst "hardened" film students (at least it did when I first saw it in film history) Smile.

As a side note, the title "Ai no corrida" literally means "Bullfight of Love", corrida being a loan word from Spanish ("corrida" in Spanish also means something entirely different and even less family oriented than bullfighting, but very appropriate for the film). Very sexually explicit, on (or over) the edge of soft porn, this one. Known as "In the Realm of the Senses" in the Western part of the world.

Never bothered with the sequel or prequel Smile (or the American sequel).

There were spots of tension to me, but those evaporated when the Pang brothers started to look like the Wachowski ditto at the end of the film Wink

Wicker Man was great, but I never really got why people classify it as horror rather than a thriller... thingy (with compulsory 70s musical interludes). Smile Another Western one that quite positively surprised me was "The Descent" by Neil "Dog Soldiers" Marshall.

I don't see harror movies.............

The Ring (Japanese Verison) and The Fog (the sound effect scared me)
XeRo
the ring zero (Japanese)

It's really hard to scare people by means of a movie, People tend to mentally prepare themselves when going for a horror flick. The only way to scare people is either sudden appearance of the scary thing or sudden violent attack by the scary thing, Eerie music/Sound effects and last but not the least Lighting.
The most irritating thing I find in the movie hall during a horror flick is when people start making fun of a scary situation, that kills the whole moment. Mad

Anyway, my favourites are:
'The Ring'- The part when the mother opens the closet to find her daughter dead.

'Exorcism of Emily Rose'- The part when Emily's boy friend wakes up to find her on the floor in a frightening pose staring at him. Shocked

Hmmm, it's hard to beat the zombie cult film, Night of the Living Dead


This was the first ever zombie film I saw ( the old version of course Smile ) and it terrified me. I was only about ten at the most and watched it alone with my parents unaware...it made a huge impression and led to the creation of a huge zombie fan.

I also remember being scared by a lot of the old black and white horror films as a child, again sneaking to watch them and loving being scared by the likes of Vincent Price ( whom I think is a legend).

Anyone else remember Fu Manchu films...scarey old chinese guy...the films always ended with him dead and yet a ghostly booming voice ( and yeah I know thats a contradiction but if you hear it you'll know what I mean) saying 'I will be back'.

I think so much of the old stuff is overlooked in these days of computer generated graphics and huge budget special effects, and yet these old films were classics, and the inspiration for many of the writers and producers of the modern horror film.
rip8fan1
Jaws (kept me from learning how to swim)
Silence Of The Lambs (Mr. Lecter is a trip)
The Hills Have Eyes (the Original one - scared me to death)
Psycho (the shower scene still scares me)
Godzilla (the orginal - what a cool ride)
Punker
I'm going to have to say.... Halloween 2. Theres that new one coming out that looks really good called Play Again or something. It looks pretty wicked.
xorcist
Saw 1 and Saw 2 there were really some scary movies.
evestor
Well I guess I am a little old school on this one.

For sheer shock of it "The Exorcist" will win hands down for me.

For the suspense which is what really matters I would say that the first Halloween film is one of the most frightening of all time.

I alos appreciate in no particular order:

Candyman
Nightmare on Elm Street I
High Tension (Yes I liked it)
Varun
NIght of the Living Dead is really kewl, i mean the way those Zombies come to get u and all, but i have also heard lot of stuff about that moive, its really a good movie given the time it was shot at....i havent seen SAW till now i got the DVDs now ill be watching it now....but my fav horror movie is yet to be released since not even a single horror movie is able to scare me, Hostle was quite ok, it was really really sick which i like in a horror movie, but other than that nothing comes even near to be a good horror movie!!!
canadol
I just saw Hostel. That is some gruesome scary stuff. a lot og hot nkaed chiacks didn't hurt either. If you like horror and want to be pushed to the limit watch this one, very disturbing
superhp
Every person has OWN opinion Wink.

I best horror movie i have seen is about cemetery of home animals... I saw it ago one mounth. This movie is very old.
The story begins when one new family comes to the one village. They re very hapy there. But one day their cat die. One old man suggest to bury it in this cemetery. And can rise... Then all begines....

I suggest it for all of you! Shocked
hcjgh
One of my best is Silence of the lambs. and haniball. They are really good films with a story that keeps you waitnig till the end.
firmawao
I think that Saw, Saw II, Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, I know what you did last summer, I still know what you did last summer were good horror movies. Although I've recently seen Hostel and that's a good one too, believe me.
teriyaki
mine is exorcist. i've watched the first one when i was like 7 or 8 for the first time and that was the scariest shit that i've ever seen. lol
i've watched the prequel also and that one was pretty good too.

also, there's exorcism of emily rose..
i don't know why but anything that deals with spirits and stuff like that scares the shit out.
bluedevil7878
Besides zombie movies I love House of 1000 Corpses and the sequel. Rob Zombie is sick and twisted.
nakamaru
I like Saw. So many interesting twists and turns.
colilon
The Jacket...

A brilliant movie, amazing actors, just great...

Identity...

Real nice, again genious!

Saws...

Well, yeah....

Body Snatchers - it is a science fiction movie, but for me also the best horror movie I've seen.

My favorite has to be either Carrie or Dr. Jekyll Sister Hyde.
starcatcher5555
The first two Karloff Frankenstein films are some of my favorite horrors. The Lugosi Dracula is pretty great too...


glossee
is "The Other" starring by Nicole Kidman a horror movie? if so, thats definitely my fav, tho i didnt dare watching it alone
Ljsk
Nosferatu Twisted Evil
Dj Redrum
Im a big fan of horrors but i can't really choose a main favourite out of all the ones that i have seen over the years. But i have to say the classic series of Halloween.
FroggieWoman
I have two favorite horror movies, The Village and Jaws. The village because the movies just gives me chills every time I watch it. M. Night Shyamalan (hope I spelled that right) has such an awesome way of making a horror movie without reallly killing people. And Jaws because it was one of the first horror movies I ever watched and it gave me nightmares about a shark falling from my ceiling onto my bed. Not really sure why I just know I didn't get much sleep when I was 5-6 years old.
nondormo
I liked the Ring although I am told that the American and Japanese versions aren't the same. I thought it was chilling: a girl with the eyes of horse is murdered by her parents (or was it just the mother?) and the karmic imbalance it caused produced a tape that kills! Confused Man, there was a lot of imagination there. And a lot of good storytelling.

Saw 2 & The Ring 2

my favorite horror moves is resident evil 1 and 2

*thumbsup*

I'm a fan of horror movies, and I watch a lot, though I'm not updated on the more recent ones nowadays.

I dont know how extensive the knowledge of the people here about Asian horror movies but my favourites are the following
The Eye (Japanese)
The Shutter (Japanese) dam this one is really scary...
Doll's House (Korean)
A Tale of Two Sisters (Korean) more like a suspense for me but its beautiful nonetheless.
Fung Shui (Filipino)
The Village
Amityville

I don't know but I look at Saw as some suspense movie, something. And gory. Its really lovely but... well, I dont percieve it as scary *shrugs*
mujastar
My favorite horror movie is Scream! That movie scared the living crap out of me! But it was great! Cool
Josso
Definatly Event Horizon, probably one of my favourite films of all time. Very few people have seen it actually in the UK I find, I wonder whether in American context it will be different. I think it was released about 1997.
mommyapril
My favorite horror movies of all time are the Halloween movies. The first Halloween is my favorite out of the series.
Y-D_1987
have'nt really got a main favourite that i can pick out, can't even name the last good movie that i have seen as they have all been bad in quality. But i'll have to go with the main classics of The Eyes Have Eyes 2. And Halloween.

Also Aliens was good even though its not there not a fully horrorcore movie.
<h1>
My favourite horror movie is the Grudge. I watched it on my lonesome and it realllly freaked me out..
At that time I was staying in a flat with metered electricity, towards the end of teh movie the electricity cut out.. I was panicking, proper freaked out and couldn't find change for the meter. That was the worst 5 minutes of my life... cool movie as well..
dreaman
my favourite horror movie is hostel or saw
Hello_World
I really like The Host and The Mist.

But above all I really liked a movie called Monster.

Also I love zombie movies.

But I don't like movies like Saw at all.
caroline953
The Shining is my favorite horror movie that was released in 1980. "The Shining" was enough to make me go to bed with the lights turned on every night for an entire summer. It is an unforgettable movie for me.
jwellsy
Zombie Strippers, destined to be a classic.

Fantastic choice! Which do you prefer? I've only seen the 1950s one. I quite enjoyed it.
markj801
Scream. I grew up watching it, and the end is just so great.
Vanilla
A Nightmare on Elm Street, Hellraiser and some zombie movies (28 days later, Shaun of the dead, Zombieland). I saw some asian movies that scared me SO MUCH that I had to ask my boyfriend to stay with me and help me fall asleep. Razz

I just can't watch this movie. I prefer more "funny" horror movies. When I read "The shining" it scared the hell out of me, so I decided I can't watch the movie...

Me too. I saw "The Shining" once, and that was enough for me. Jack Nicholson was great in it. I prefer "funny" horror movies myself.
Carmon
Hello guys !!! Nice talking about horror movies Around the world are many horror Movies and mostly horror movies really nice because i was watched these movies and my favourite horror movie is (the exorcism) According to my view this movie is too much horror...
ShannonHBC
The Shining.

That's the only horror film I've ever seen I can honestly say that I like. It's a great film. Jack Nicholson is fantastic.

Don't like those so-called 'horror' movies - they are just some torture movies - Real Horror is Exorcist and Grudge
jamesadams01
Last I watch Horror Movie "Final Destination Part 2 " It good but not is my favorite I also watch other parts of this movie in alls story is same . Mostly I watch romantic and action movies. So I have no any horror movie that I say Its my favorite....
enilsoncba
one of the worst horror movies I watched was The Exorcism of Emily Rose ... our ... was extremely impressive ... I understand that such films show some real characteristics of the spiritual world .. we need to set our faith in God almighty, creator of heaven and earth, the beginning and the end, the alpha and omega, who was and who is and who is to come ... This film had several versions, from his first film to the last, always shows the act of exorcism over the possession of a child, in this case Exorcism of Emily Rose, since she was a teenager.
Lishmares
Theres a lot that i like but my favorite, i think its Strangeland this movie is so sick with Capthowdy! Twisted Evil
playfungames
Horror movies that I have watched: Evil dead series (watched as a little kid along with my father who highly recommended it) and Paranormal Activity (the first part). I am a chicken when it comes to horror movies and i rarely watch them. When there is one playing on the television, I hurriedly change the channel.

But I kind of liked paranormal activity as it scared me a lot even though I was watching the movie along with four other people during broad daylight. Even after watching the movie, I was afraid to be alone and could not sleep several nights till late hours.
darthrevan
I like "The Shining" "Storm of the Century" "Poltergeist 1-3" and more that I am currently not thinking of.

The walking dead is the greatest horror series I've ever seen
Besides of that, Dead silence is a film too

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Halloween (1978)

Those are probably my top 2

SAME! I'm a huge coward when it comes to horror movies. I use to love them when I was a kid (go figure), but now I can't even sleep if I just watched a horror movie. But I can say I love Evil Dead because it's funny. It doesn't scare me, just pure joy.

I forgot to add Silent Hill to my first post. It's not your regular horror movie, it's plainly disturbing. But I don't know why I can't avoid it (see my "chicken" statement above), I watch it every time it's on TV (and sometimes even on my computer). I think that I must blame Pyramid Head for that. He just... It's hard to explain, but I felt intrigued by his figure. To be fair, the movie is the only reason why I'm playing the game now. My brother has a PS2 and recently he acquired Silent Hill 2. At first I was too afraid to play the game (again, I'm a coward), but then I started playing it and I'm really enjoying it! I'm even further in the game than my brother right now haha!

The Ring (English). Never watched the japanese version but love to watch it if available in english-sub.
rogue_skydragon
I used to be terrified with Child's Play, the first Chucky movie. As a kid, I would get nightmares after watching it.

Now though, I think the scariest (at least most gruesome) movie I'd say is Black Christmas or Human Centipede.
sysna
The Ring (Japanese Version) was the best horror movie i saw in my life, it was really a good movie that i didn't even blinking easily while i was watching it.

Other movies i watched never was as good as that movie, by the way i liked saw series too but mostly Saw I because others were just an extended version and the idea was old after the first movie.

saw 2 and hostel Twisted Evil

Watched Fast and Furious 6 and the second G. I. Joe movie. Both of these movies are great.

i guess it'd be freddy vs jason. probably one of the many movies that come to mind when someone asks what's my favorite movie among the genre of horror. a lot of movies come to mind because i love the genre. not so much the newer movies, and especially not the b-rated ones, but i do enjoy the older ones. like psycho, an amazing classic. awesome movie. i believe every horror fan must have seen this movie at least once.

i'm also a fan of friday the 13th, a nightmare on elm street, the halloween series, hellraiser, and more! Very Happy the 70s-90s horror movies were top notch in my opintion. Wink
ishihara
The Grudge Cool
dude_xyx
Texas Chain saw massacre was so scary. Also Wrong turn first movie. I don't usually watch horror movies so these 2 are the best from what I have watched so far. I want if Aliens 2 can count as a horror movie too.
Iceaxe0410
There are so many to choose from. I did enjoy the first Saw. I think however, I would pick the Ring. That movie when I watched it for the first time gave me chills. Especially the part when the girl came out of the tv. I've never really been much of a horror movie fan, but that one was one of the few that I wouldn't mind watching again. I generally don't go for any of the hack and slash type of horror of movies. It just seems so overdone. The first Friday the 13th and various Halloween movies were ok, but it's pretty much more of the same. I guess I'm more fascinated by the supernatural rather than psychopathic killers.
MichelleShirley
paranormal activity is my favorite. Only first post.
shtuffandthings
Poltergeist - what got me into horror at the age of 5.
The Ring - Scared me so bad I went and saw it again a week later to make sure I didn't die.
Insidious - A frightening and original take on ghost stories
It Follows - A movie version of the trope I write about time and again, the idea of a relentlessly pursuing death that nobody else seems to see and that you can never escape from.
In The Mouth of Madness - HP Lovecraft meets Stephen King as directed by John Carpenter and starring Sam Neil. NERDSPLOSION
Occulus - Messes with your head, and the idea of a haunted mirror is fantastic. Done better than Mirrors for sure.
