so it's the haunting season, what's your favourite horror film?
slasher, monster, psychological thriller
i digitized all my dvds a while back, and looking at the files on my hard drive, the horror outweighs any other genre
264.62 gb for the movies folder and 78.74 is horror
i like any type, cheesy teen splatter flicks (Nightmare on Elm Street, Trick 'r' Treat) to more intense asian psychological stuff (Audition, Old Boy)
How many gigs in an average movie. I really want to know cause I too wanna get a movie server for all my netflixes and ****. Course, Ive had a net DVD cabinet I made and now , with an auxilliary derive Im gonna have to make another piece of furniture cause I hate that "component look" all around the house. (I live in a really old home).
PS My real favorite movie is "Fright Night" some of the best effects
"Dead and Loving it" was good
I notice that most of the SyFy horror movies of late are really cheesey P'sOS
depends on the settings i used to convert them, most of mine are in the .mfv format for play on an ipod, none are much bigger than 1 gig, most are around 700 mb or so
i remember really liking Fright Night when i first saw it
The Haunting with Julie Harris and Claire Bloom was one of the few movies that actually scared me a couple of times.
might have to check that out
See the original. Not the pathetic remake.
That was a damned good movie.
I agree. Literate and well acted. And scary. (I don't scare easy--moviewise).
I'm the only among the group that went to see it that had her eyes open all the way through Psycho.
sweet, it's based on Shirley Jackson's the Haunting of Hill House, now i have to see it, love the book
Eek I gotta say the Alien
movies scare the crap outta me. Not a fan of horror at all, but it does sometimes come dressed in sci-fi clothing.
The first one i really loved (i've got it on DVD). But the later ones weren't so scary--you knew what was coming, and so did the potential victims. The third movie was just too bizarre. Alien Resurrection
was just too silly.
i've always thought of the original Alien as a horror film, or at the very least a monster movie
never much cared for the series after the first, i know i saw the 2nd, but that might be it
It is bad for me to see horror films, but it is also bad for me to eat junk food. Still, once in a while I give in to my urge to see a horror movie in the same way that I give in to my urge to eat junk food.
Brian DePalma made a few very bloody horror films before he directed "The Untouchables." One of DePalma's early films was called "Sisters" (1974) and starred Margot Kidder. I saw it in a theater on a big screen. It was very disturbing.
not to mention Carrie and The Fury
I bought that last Halloween
movie because it was in 3D. Then I felt silly sitting and watching it with those dorky glasses on lol.
ha, i had the box set of nightmare on Elm Street, one of the films was 3D, but i could never bring my self to watch it with the glasses for that very reason
You mentioned watching the Japanese horror film, "Audition." That movie was once described to me in detail. I have not been brave enough to actually watch it. Is it the most gruesome movie that you have ever seen?
Too many movies are deemed horror movies even though I may like them I don't find them scary.
Still a select few movies can give me the creeps. Most of Paranormal Activity
is razzie worthy though the film does have some really effective scary scenes.
The scariest films I have remembered seeing:
The Descent (2005)
Fire in the Sky (1993)
The Others (2001)
The Shining (1980)
The Thing (1982)
Great horror films I seen but didn't find scary:
Rosemary's Baby (1968)
The Wicker Man (1973)
Angel Heart (1987)
