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)

@djjd62,
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

@farmerman,
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

The Haunting with Julie Harris and Claire Bloom was one of the few movies that actually scared me a couple of times.

See the original. Not the pathetic remake.

@Setanta,
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.

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.

@jespah,
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.

@jespah,
i've always thought of the original Alien as a horror film, or at the very least a monster movie

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.

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.

@djjd62,
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?

@djjd62,
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)
Hardware (1990)
The Others (2001)
The Shining (1980)
The Thing (1982)

Great horror films I seen but didn't find scary:
Rosemary's Baby (1968)
Carrie (1976)
The Wicker Man (1973)
Angel Heart (1987)
