  • Halloween Movie recommendation



    Just posting this for those in need of one. The classic 1963 version of The Haunting:

    No gore. No blood. No swearing. Entirely psychological. Not recommended for kids though. Too much of a mind#$%*.

    Oh I love that version. I love horrors in general, but that film is a masterpiece in terms of what can be done to scare the bejeezus out of you with just lighting and sounds.


    It was one of the films that was an inspiration for Event Horizon (another of my favourite horrors - lots of blood in that one though, but also a strong psychological element).


    It's a shame that most modern horrors are more about grossing you out than providing a scare.


    I would, however, recommend The Descent, if you haven't seen it - about a bunch of women who go caving and find something nasty. Some blood but it's more about cringe-inducting claustrophobia and the odd boo moment. The characters are decent, strong women as well - which should appeal to the primal ladies who frequent these boards.

            poltergeist

            Psycho

            The Omen

            All are better if you can watch it in a pitch black area deep in the woods with a good sound system.

              I would also mention Jacob's Ladder although it's not really a horror movie.


              I was one of those that liked Blair Witch so I am jonesing to see PA!

                  I had completely forgotten of In the mouth of madness! Loving this thread.

                        The Shining is an insanely scary movie.

                        The Thing has to be the John Carpenter version and since you're getting that, get Prince of Darkness for the JC double feature.

                        Classic horror, The Horror of Dracula (Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing) is the best Dracula movie.

                          Some more:

                          Ginger Snaps

                          An American Werewolf in London

                          Candyman


                          The photography and costumes in Burton's Sleepy Hollow rock my world. I also like Queen of the Damned and Underworld for the same reason.

                              Bram Stoker's Dracula is the best Dracula movie IMO, even with Keanu Reeves.


                              The Nightmare Before Christmas

                              Corpse Bride

                              Coraline


                              for those who like animation.
