    Default Best Horror Movies?

    Hello! As you probably already have guessed, I am a fan of horror movies. Sadly, the modern day cinema isn't really that great for them, as they tend to be made simply for grabbing cash from youngsters. There are, however, a few horror movies I personally consider must-see for any fan of horror or movies in general. Here are my favourite horror-movies (quite recent, too)

    Spoiler Spoiler - Three

    So... What are your favourites?

    I feel like commenting on those films, and I know you want my opinion.
    Sinister is pretty great, can't look at a lawn mower the same way ever again - without the urge to recreate that famous home footage scene, can't go wrong with the Exorcist, I always start my day with a backwards spider walk, I liked Cabin in the Woods, but I found it neither scary or funny, I wasn't sure what genre it was meant to be but it was pretty cool, no denying that, you're right, didn't see You're Next. It's Next on my list, and Shaun of the Dead, best movie ever, or a least one of them. Mighty fine list. I like The Hills Have Eyes, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Silence of the Lambs, The Grudge, The Mist, early Saws, The Orphanage, some Aliens were pretty cool too. A bunch of those aren't really scary but a good movie is a good movie, not to sound like that guy but I haven't seen a good horror movie that makes an impression and leaves a disturbing afterthought for weeks to come in a long, long time, I mean now we're stuck with, as you said, money grabbing teen-thrillers, One Missed Call, Orphan, every Paranormal Activity, but that's just my opinion, I feel like now, to achieve something similar to horror, they have to make it some incredibly bloody, conceptually disgusting movie that stays with you until you leave the cinema and then it's completely forgotten, it's about time someone made something that really deserves the title "horror movie", I want to be terrified, darn it.

    More iron than man.

    I'm not a big fan of horror, but one of my favourite from recent years is The Descent.

    One fad I'm sick of at the moment (just throught the flipping trailers... I haven't even seen any of them!) is the abundance of found footage haunted house films. Every time I see "from the creators of Paranormal Activity" I sigh and roll my eyes.

    The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Evil Dead (2013).

    @Ironface

    You are right. As much as I tend to claim things like "I don't care about your opinion on the matter" and such, hearing other people's opinions is probably the single mos important thing I keep making lists. So thank you for giving your own on that matter! Also, for horror that truly sticks with you, I can't really comment. I don't know you as a person and I don't know what scares you as a person. Personally, though, nothing has ever reached the level of horror inflicted upon me by a Doctor Who two-part story "Empty Child" and "The Doctor Dances". That is just beyond anything I have ever seen in cinema.

    Yeah, "Shaun" is in my top 10 movies of all time. It's certainly one of the most unique-in-style films ever, like "District 9" and "Shaun's" own spiritual predecessor, "The World's End."

  6. Thanks!

    Kill list. Although not technically a horror film I don't think, this is easily one of the most terrifying films I have ever seen. Also, you can't forget ALIEN. Both quality films.

    Sinister was pretty good, 8/10
    The Exorcist is pretty much the best horror movie. 10/10
    Cabin in the woods was hilarious, 9/10
    You're next was weirdly funny, 7/10
    Shaun of the dead I never saw.

    Other horror movies that I love and consider to be quality work include the descent, the shining, silence of the lambs, let me in, and the conjuring.

    I'm not the biggest Who fan there is to be honest (as I've only seen a few episodes here and there) but a while ago I told a friend of mine that I do particularly like the creepy episodes and so naturally he recommended the, yes, that's right, the Weeping Angels episodes, and I thought they were just fantastic, same with a bunch of others, and it saddened me to realise that hardly any movies I'd seen had such a great premise as a few episodes of the show, I feel like I've seen Empty Child but if not I'll have a look at them both, and maybe rewatch that Water on Mars one.

    Also as Tynz says, the Descent and the Conjuring are some films a horror-film watcher should certainly pick up on their way to the DVD store, and be sure to fill your night with unimaginable terror, terror most foul!

    I honestly found The Conjuring a tiny bit... ineffective. It certainly had the atmosphere and its structure, acting, plot development and characters were all on spot. It was also brilliantly directed, but there was no specific point in the movie where I was properly scared. It's certainly one of the most well made horror movies in recent memory, but not one of the scariest to me. I won't suggest it for horror, but if you want to know what well-made is in movie-terms, then you should probably watch it. It may also scare you, I don't know.

    However, I do love the movie as what it is: a completely original movie based on no existing franchise. It is based on true story, but that's okay, because it's not a true story I have heard of. In a world where movie industry is based on rehashes of already existing franchises or reboots or cynical cash-grabs of romantic comedies, seeing something like The Conjuring make it to the big screen and you should most definitely buy it on DVD, even though it didn't scare me. If we don't support new franchises like that, what will they reboot in 10 years?

    In all seriousness, we need movies like the Conjuring. We need more movies like that and that's why we should support new creative sparks like this, even if they may not be as great as we expect. We need to support movies like "The Conjuring" or "Pacific Rim" or "Elysium"or "Only God Forgives" or "The World's End." Even if they won't live up to our expectations they are likely at least fresh and different.

    I for one love it when movies are honest with themselves and completely original.
