    Silent Hill wasn't half bad.

    I thought it was brilliant, really shit me up.

    But then I'm not exactly a horror fan.

    I like Jeepers Creepers. Well, most of it. It goes silly at the end.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    What was that film about the Tooth Fairy, or something in darkness (not a vampire). Half remembered, looked good though.

    10 Rillington Place (gave me nightmares as a kid)

    A couple of the old Amicus / Hammer horrors aren't bad. Sure, they're a bit laughable - effects wise - but they have that weird chilling aura about them.

    Not strictly horror but I remember some of the bits in Return to Oz being distinctly kid-unfriendly for a Disney flick.

    I think it may actually be called Tooth Fairy. At least there is a film with that name. I haven't seen it though.

    Don't Look Now is pretty widely available. (Dog Soldiers is rubbish btw, don't waste your time.)

    It may be in Britain, but I'm in Austria, so I'll have to look around I guess.

    Dog soldiers is more comedy/horror. If you want some of that sweet action you can't do better than the Evil Dead series and the Reanimator series.

    Yeah, I quite enjoyed it - until you saw what the evil doer was.

    Wolf mountain (I think that's what it's called) was quite good. Australian outback murder and slaughter affair.

    There was another really quite unpleasant film I watched on the flight out to our Honeymoon. The hills have eyes (or similar).

    I've been eyeing the Evil Dead movies for some time. Army of Darkness is great, but I think it's waaaay softer than the first two. Hmmm...

    I think that'd be Wolf Creek, eh? I heard it's extremely nasty though. Same with The Hills Have Eyes. They're probably too hardcore for me.

    Wolf Creek would definitely fall into the Hostel/Saw genre and so not be what the OP was looking for.

    An oldy but great film for having a creepy atmosphere is the original The Haunting.

    I thought Jacob's Ladder was crap. Tim Robbins is sometimes crap.

    Well, Evil Dead 2 is pretty much a funnier remake of Evil Dead 1 with slightly better haircuts and no treerape. So watch that one.

    +1 for [REC]

    The ending is superb.

    I've only seen 1 and 3 myself.

    Shame about the lack of tree rape :(

    It makes up for the lack of treerape with some truly awesome hand jobs.

    If you like a bit of rubbish science in your horror movies, try the following;

    Prince of Darkness
    Primer
    Altered States
    Demon Seed
    The Fly

    I thought 'let the right one in' was a load of emo rubbish. What was wrong with Dog Soldiers? Other than the weird mysogynist rant at the end?

    The Haunting (original) is very atmospheric, and it's amazing it still works considering how long ago it was made.

    'Jeepers Creepers' is the worst film I have ever seen. It is total shit.

    'My Little Eye' is pretty good.

    The Re-animator. That's a good 'un. Bit comedy horror and cheesy, not actually that goretastic splashy.

    Also, Evil Dead 2 > Evil Dead *

    It's not a splatter movie, but it's a really bad film in its own right. Don't bother.

    See, I didn't think it was like those - yes, there's a couple of nasty bits, but they're actually pretty brief and not actually the focus of the film unlike the aforementioned. To me it was all about ratcheting up a really apprehensive sense of tension and familiarising yourself with the characters which cleverly made the sparingly-used violence, when it did happen, seem worse than it was.

    It can be pretty unsettling, as intended, but I'd argue against it being lumped in the 'torture porn' category.
