    It's getting close to Halloween, so I figured I'd keep up my tradition of posting these threads so everyone can give their new imput. Not too much came out this year in terms of good stuff (although I haven't seen the newer Dawn of the Dead or Shaun of the Dead), but a lot of great titles have been re-released on DVD with bonus features. Some of the newer releases that I've either picked up or would like to include:
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre Special Edition (the classic)
    Dawn of the Dead divimax
    Lucio Fulci's Zombie (there's a special edition coming out)
    Serpant and the Rainbow
    and my wife got me the whole colleciton of Nightmare on Elm Streets this past year as well as the Friday the 13th (which unfortunately have no special editions with commentary)

    So what are your favorites?
     
  2. Thats a tough one to narrow down to even a short list. So here are my favs that I can just pull off the top of my head.
    +1 to Zombie, a great gore -fest
    The Exorcist, still freaks me out a little even today after having seen it dozens of times
    Friday the 13th parts 1,2, and 3
    The Evil Dead
    Any of the ...Living Dead films (Romero's)
    Thats it...for now

    I hate scary movies - last night I was forced to watch "Secret Window", which, in comparison to others listed here, would probably be a bit wussy, but I didn't like that. Also Psycho was ok until Janet Leigh was murdered - I dunno.... I just don't like gore.

    CSI's all right though. :meh:

    I don't know how I forgot American Werewolf in London. -thought the follow ups were forgetable and well, really bad, the original remains a classic.

    The movie actually freaked me out pretty bad when I was...8? 9? What with Tim Curry coming up through the drain a couple times. I mean, I watched a few years later when I was all of 12, and didn't understand why it freaked me out at all, but there you have it.

    Book was pretty good, though.

    I loved the book, It, but hated the movie, as well.

    I remember when I was a kid, my sister and I got to stay up late one Friday or Saturday night. There was some TV horror movie on that scared the living feces out of us. I remember that I was more scared than the movie really rated, because Angie was so scared.(She's a year and a half younger than me) And apparently, just sitting next to a terror-stricken person while mildly apprehensive doesn't work.

    So, anyway, the movie ends and Mom says bedtime. Angie goes to the kitchen and comes back with the biggest butcher knife we owned. She said it was for protection. Mom disagreed. Much drama and funniness ensued.

    That's definitely the funniest one IMO, because of the bad funk music and the fact that the movie was supposed to be in 3D apparently. It's also the first time he puts on the hockey mask. My favorite is part 2 though, because it's the best actual horror movie of them all. It just really had that great late 70s/early 80s horror flick feel to it, like Happy Birthday to Me and Halloween did.
     
  17. In my opinion, "Alien" has to be one of the very best - the sequels got progressively worse - disappointing, but inevitable…

    Yes, a very cool, creepy movie. I would like to see this one remade with digital effects. Another creepy one was the first Jeepers Creepers, I thought that one was scary.
