    I enjoy some of the modern stuff, but as you can see from 1-5, Boris Karloff and Vincent Price are still the supremos of sinister cinema IMO.

    I have so many if I tried to make a list of them I'd be dishonoring those I forgot. Many of them have already been listed here.

    matz2 Sheeeeeeeeeeeit!

    The first 20 minutes of "When a Stranger Calls" are the scariest of any movie ever made (imo). The movie is just ok after that, but the beginning make up for it.

    I also like the following:

    Halloween 1, 2 & 4
    The Shining
    The Exorcist
    Friday the 13th (1-4)
    Se7en / Silence of the Lambs (not necessarily horror)
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Original)

    buckzip Reeking with awesomeness

    The Fog
    The Shining
    Aliens (2)
    Nightmare on Elm Street
    Night of the Living Dead
    Pumpkin Head

    I forgot to mention "The Thing" with Kurt Russell.

    Yup, "The Thing" and "Prince of Darkness" were both awesome horror flicks.

    Also, the "Exorcist," after all these years, remains the scariest movie I've ever seen (I first saw it when I was eleven years old, in the dark, and still remember the experience!).

    Also worth noting is "The Ring" which is the scariest movie that has come out in the last few years. Really great movie.

    Others that people have noted are, of course, classics. But I want to suggest that people check out "Hellraiser 1" (the sequels are pretty lousy but the first one rocks) and "Friday 13th part 1" as really excellent horrors.

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand.

    that is a great movie... I watched it a few months ago when it was on TBS, TNT or something. I remember that movie from when I was younger... it scared the shit out of me.
  12. BuckeyeTillIDie

    BuckeyeTillIDie The North Remembers

    Army of Darkness

    The original Halloween is still awesome, as is the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The remake was much better than I expected, but still just felt like a cheap scare with special effects and fancy camera work. I would also include Dawn of the Dead, the first Nightmare on Elm Street (before Freddy turned into a comedian right before killing someone), the original Hellraiser, Alien and Alien Resurrection, the Japanese version of The Ring, the first couple of Friday the 13th movies, the original Exorcist, and one of the most underated movies of all time, The Exorcist III.

    I can't wait to see Saw...

    I'll throw a few other randoms out there that I love...(some horror, some sort of horror)

    American Psycho
    The Changeling
    The Others
    Rosemary's Baby
    Army of Darkness
    Blair Witch Project
    The Cell
    Child's Play
    Lord of Illusions
    The Ninth Gate
    Brotherhood of the Wolf
    Haute Tension
