    Just finished watching Session 9. Thought it was pretty good, although it is slow in parts and could probably have its runtime cut down a little to improve it.

    By "good horror films" do you mean horror films which actually scare you? Horror films now rarely seem to meet their goal these days if that's the case.

    It just seems like most horror films made these days have the primary goal of creating a cult following if nothing else, or paying homage to other horror movies with a strong cult following, or keeping the cult following flame burning for certain film series.

    The only horror film that has geniunely freaked me out a little in the last 10 years has been The Fourth Kind.

    Films that kind of freak me out are

    Silver Bullet. I'm not even scared of werewolves but this was done pretty well.
    Prince of Darkness. Don't know what it is but it's just creepy, john carpenter film.
    The grudge
    The original Salems lott but I think the films 3 hours long.

    Yes this. Worth it for the DJ Shadow-Entroducing samples alone. It is creepy and quite chilling.

    "Damn it! I had a date with a beautiful trial attorney from Century City!"

    "Really. What was his name?"

    Some oldies, new horror films are just so shite, I prefer ones with a creepy atmosphere like these, not all this Saw bollocks.

    Ghost Story (1981)
    Great film about some blokes haunted and murdered later in life by the ghost of the girl they killed and covered up when they were younger. Really Creepy Scary stuff.

    The Exorcist (1973) Still bloody brilliant and scared me shitless as a student. I still avoid it when its on.

    The Sentinel (1977)
    A Michael Winner film, yes him of the fucking "calm down dear its only a commercial adverts". But a creepy fucking film about a single model who moves into an apartment in New York only to be haunted and groomed to become the guardian to the gate way to hell. Creepy fucking film.

    Suspiria (1977)
    A newcomer to a fancy ballet academy in Italy gradually comes to realize that the staff of the school are actually a coven of witches bent on chaos and murder. One hell of a creepy film with some shocking murders and a nerve shredding creepy final 20min.

    Don't look Now (1975)
    Okay everyone must know the shocking ending by now, but its also the harrowing creepy journey up to that moment which makes this a classic. Plus it has that OM fucking God first time watch shock ending which is never replicated on repeated viewings.

    The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)
    Although a blatant Exorcist rip off its bloody good with some good creepy scares.

    Judging by the age of these they dont make em like they used to.

    Some honourable mentions:

    The Ring (2002) Watched this before the original (knowing nothing) and loved it.
    Split Second (1992) Creepy sci-fi thriller with Rutger Hauer, tracking a mutant alien killer, a guilty pleasure.
    Alien (1979) Seen it so much it loses its shock, plus the action sequels spoil the Alien danger/mythology.
    The Thing (1982) A Classic, a hard watch though.
    Event Horizon (1998) Scary but on the whole a bit meh.
    The Descent (2005) Scary but turns into an OTT splatter movie.
    The Shining (1980) A good film a bit creepy but never found it that scary.

    Watched Heartless, directed by Philip Ridley the other night. Very athmospheric,Lovecraftian, tale. Lost its way slightly toward the end yet enjoyable nonetheless.

    Is it just me being fucking thick, or is it just a pure coincidence that there's a fucking murderous midget running around Venice in a red coat?

    Right, really old bump here, but I'm in the mood for a horror film at the moment and am looking for recommendations. I'm in the mood for a creepy haunted house theme, and recently enjoyed The Woman in Black.

    Other horror films I've enjoyed include:
    Rec
    Ring/Ring 2/Ring 0
    The Guard Post
    R-Point
    The Orphanage (if you can count it as horror)
    Halloween/The Thing/In The Mouth of Madness, etc - all the Carpenter classics
    The Host
    The Evil Dead trilogy
    Paranormal Activity
    The Eye
    The Grudge
    The typical classics like Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Texts Chainsaw, the Romero films, etc

    I'm more into supernatural horror than just your typical slasher (although Saw was a clever thriller) and I don't like excessive gore. Any recommendations would be most welcome.
  • Deleted user 11 April 2013 08:13:15
    Stupid question but have you seen insidious?

    Also, if you liked r point, have you seen some good British period war horror? Deathwatch, the bunker, outpost?

    The original (not US remakes) pulse (kairo) and one missed call are good too.

    Oh, also km31 is a brilliant horror if slightly derivative it's well done with a decent creep factor.

    Cool, good to hear. I enjoyed Devil - a minor revelation considering the turds he's been involved with in recent years - so I can believe he might be still capable of something half decent.

    I actually really liked The Visit, which took me by surprise. Mind you the boy in it was INCREDIBLY irritating, but then most children his age are, so I suppose he did a decent job.

    The Tourist - Scared the life outta me, i thought Angelina Jolie was a zombie.

    Near Dark is great, not sure its classed as a horror movie though.

    my sentiments exactly.

    Not really into horror films but The Shining is a classic and braindead directed by Peter Jackson was quite good from what I can remember.

    Wolf creek (the first film. Not the sequel or series)

    Deeply disturbing and fucking brilliant at the same time

    I need to dig that out. Bought Wolf Creek on the cheap about 6-7 years ago and never actually got round to watching the damn thing.

    On topic, I quite liked the Ne Blair Witch movie at the cinema. Got mixed reviews on release and is a bit of a rehash, but it genuinely creeped me out at points. Do not under any circumstances watch the trailer though as it gives far too much away (fortunately I only saw the trailer after seeing the movie)

    The Exorcist III

    An amazing film with some genuine chilling moments. Suffers by being associated with a franchise but it's a brilliant film.

    Now for a bit of a history lesson..

    Going back to an earlier post about films that scared you as a teenager but when viewed today are probably faintly ridiculous.

    There were alot of old made for TV films that fall into this category for me such as

    Moon of the Wolf - wolfman hijinxs in Louisiana. Really good until you see the wolfman.

    Don't be Afraid of the Dark - the original one not the Katie Holmes one.
    Guys in rubber suits made to look small trying to drag people into a fire place. i think it was their voices that really made them scary. None of that cgi screaming at the camera shit which every monster has to do in every film these days.

    Kolchak, the Night Stalker - vampire with a bad toupee. still pretty good. Deserves a remake.

    The Stone Tape - still good - spirits trapped in stones get released by soundwaves or something.

    Devil Dog - Richard Crenna excellent as always. Better than Zoltan Hound of Dracula. I think he did another one about UFO abductions which was also good.

    The Survivors(1975) - Drab TV series - There was an episode in which one of the guys from rentaghost got rabies that absolutely terrified me.

    Although these were made on the cheap they were made well,acted well and were pretty effective at the time which is probably why I still remember them.

    Unless you are 40+ you probably won't know any of these.
