    Some top notch suggestions in here, especially the black and white Haunting. I'll add the first Candyman to the list. I've perhaps seen it too many times now that the jumps don't work on me any more, but is awesomely creepy in places, still rather unsettling and is a decent thriller to boot.

    The Haunting, 1963 version is a total classic
    Yup. Really should watch this again, so ta for the timely reminder! It really is fantastic. Not sure if it is really a great film to watch with a crowd as you have to get in the mood, but it's excellent.

    Unsettled is about as close as I get to scared now. Pontypool worked on me.
    Completely agree on Pontypool, loved it to bits. I first came across it as a radio play on the world service, which I stumbled across half way through by accident. That was *really* cool.

    Also agree that things aren't really *scary* any more, but I think that's more me than films.

    As a suggestion for a film though, I'd say Black Christmas. Years ahead of Halloween the film, this is really the first "slasher" film, conventional thinking be damned. It also has more tension and drama than Halloween.

    I'd be amazed if I don't need to edit this post.

    Awesome suggestions. Do like a good horror, the more suspenseful the better for me. Gore doesn't really bother me. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've ever seen the Thing, have to fix that.

    I'm too to see a preview of Sightseers. Ben Wheatley's follow up to Kill List. Q&A afterwards.

    Looks very different. Could be awesome.

    Hellboy has a nice Halloween vibe to it.

    Dougal and the Blue Cat. The sugar scene is pretty hardcore (EVEN GRANULATED!) and the bit with Florence & the gang in the dungeon is pretty devastating.

    Has anyone mentioned Exorcist 3 yet? Really underrated film with a great script and some amazing creepy bits.

    Also, John Carpenter's The Fog if you're avoiding THAT film that takes place at this time of year :)

    The Stone Tape is still pretty creepy all these years on. It has such a unique atmosphere.

    Few double bills here

    Rosemarys Baby followed by House of the Devil.

    Room 237 before or after the Shining.

    The Stuff and Soylent Green.

    Audition and Martyrs.

    Tale of two sisters and Marebito.

    Kairo and The Pulse.

    Stephen King movies are bit hit or miss, but I'd stick up for the classic vampire movie Salems Lot. Also Silver Bullet, which is a great werewolf movie, but also can be enjoyed by older kids.

    The Howling is another great werewolf movie and the and worth watching for the special effects and the gorgeous Elisabeth Brooks getting her kit off.

    And John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness deserves a mention alongside with Halloween and The Fog

    I'm not one who is scared by the majority of movies mentioned here, but The Skeleton Key gave me the creeps. Brilliant film.

    Has anyone mentioned In The Mouth Of Madness? It got a mention the the main film thread a week or so ago!

    Well worth a watch though not sure how it will have aged...
  • Deleted user 22 October 2012 21:08:55
    A few more I thought of. I like old, B&W stuff for Halloween as you'll notice :)

    Carnival of Souls
    Freaks
    Dead of Night
    Night of the Demon

    Sadly my friends will not be joining me for my Halloween horror movie night this year so I'm all by myself [insert forever alone image here] ;) Regardless, I'm closely following James Rolfe's Cinemassacre's Monster Madness again and have since discovered some sweet obscure 80's horror flicks! Got me the special internet edition of Spookies the other day ;)
    Been watching this also, some of his suggestions look absolutely horrific ha. Especially Troll.

    Yeah, that was me. Absolutely love that film. Will most definitely watch it again on Halloween.
    It blew my mind a little when I first saw it. Must watch it again, enjoyed it muchly back then

    The cat and the canary is always a great watch at Halloween. It may be older than humanity and have a cheeky comedy stylee (it is Bob Hope after all), but it's also a damn good whodunnit/ghost story/chiller.
