        Finishing the new "Halloween" tonight. Not scary, but it's good on more of the 'back story' and true to the original.


        I am thinking of watching the "Army of Darkness" tonight. I've been craving 1 and 2.

          The new Halloween is pretty decent. Just watched Trick 'r Treat the other night...interesting watch.


          Paranormal Activity has a definite creep factor to it.


          The new version of Last House on The Left is a pretty brutal thriller.


          The Spanish flick 'Rec' is awesome. There was an american remake of it called Quarantine but it wasn't as good as the orig.


          And of course, the remake of Dawn of the Dead! AMAZING!

          I grok, therefore I am.

            I can't watch any horror movie that has bad things happening to children

            OR

            a corruption of something innocent. Nightmare before Christmas and Coraline fall into this. I used to like Tim Burton. Dude needs chill the F out.

              man i hate to be the debbie downer but I thought Zombie's Halloween was a piece of crap. No where near the elegance of John Carpenter's original.


              Paranormal Activity was disappointing. Did anyone else find the main characters totally annoying? The second the girl was like, "oh i was haunted when i was 8 too" I just turned off... she wanted attention, that was it. She whined throughout the entire film and her boyfriend was a tool.


              I'm kind of tired of the "it's real but it's not" horror subgenre. Blair Witch was terrifying because it was done so well everyone thought it was real. These new ones like Rec, Quarantine and Paranormal Activity are so glossed over, so much that that contain actual movie stars!


              I second the Dawn of The Dead remake.


              Sorry I'm a film major so I'm really critical of movies haha.


              The Box looks creepy.

                I don't / can't do horror - but LOVE Event Horizon! "Sunshine" has a similar feel though not quite as intense.


                Anything with creepy children I just cannot cope with - I made it through The Ring but not The Grudge, and wouldn't touch the original Japanese versions!


                For those more inclined to blood-n-guts, try the Korean films Oldboy and Lady Vengeance (there is another in this trilogy which I've not seen and can't remember name of), or Ichi the killer.


                Tim Burton is also ace

                  Event Horizon creeped me out! Oh and "The Grudge" made me feel creepy for days!

                    If anyone is looking for a bloody movie, the Japanese flick Battle Royale is kinda crazy. Some definite Tarantino influences and vice versa says the man himself.


                    French thrillers, go with 'Inside' (so so bloody) or 'Haute Tension'.

                            Jacob's Ladder was awesome! That's one effed up movie.

                                Uninvited does not seem to be Netflixable.
