Poison Ivy: The New Seduction.
Because Jaime Pressly in full dominatrix mode is hot.
Dressed to Kill if that counts. Never thought much of it until I actually decided to watch it. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
My favorite is Bob Balaban's PARENTS--creepy and funny, with the most off-putting shots of meatloaf ever put to screen!
What ever Happened to baby Jane!! i freaking love that movie. Great performances, its really funny at times "Oh really did she like it?" HAHA
I think I have to go with Pin, love the psychological, creepy and oddly atmosphere that finally leads to madness and murder!.
My vote is for The Shining. I find the character transformation of Jack Torrance more disturbing than the haunted hotel the family resides in for the snowy season. I've watched this more than any other horror film ever made.
Them (ILS) Creepy as hell.
THE BAD SEED. Very daring for its time.
I'll go with the original THE STEPFATHER.It's a great low budget sleeper with a career making role for Terry O'Quinn.The supporting cast is excellent as well and the direction is right on target.An oft overlooked gem that has slowly built a loyal following.So happy that it's finally hitting American DVD.
The Brood. Domestic violence and child abuse taking the form of demented child-like killer dwarfs!
The Shining - the perfect combination of terror in the family, coupled with hauntings and isolation.
Blackout (1985). A great psychological character study.
Gotta be thte Shining for me--still one of the scariest films of all time...
Although I think the Omen fits here as well for a good runner up...
One old - The Shining and one relatively new - The Strangers. Both had some really creepy scenes that I cannot get out of my head.
The idea I am getting from Rhett about domestic horror is more in the vein of thriller or psychological terror. But, What Lies Beneath has some supernatural element to it, so I'm not entirely sure. I'm gonna stick with the white picket fences and no ghosts...I liked The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. If I had Annabella Sciorria as a wife, a cute kid, a beautiful house and career, AND Rebecca Demornay as a nanny, I'd be fucked. She can fix me a sandwich in her nighty anytime.
What I almost picked:
A Nightmare on Elmstreet (This fits the description to a T)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
What I picked: Society, and I'm shocked no one else did. All time best domestic horror.
I would have said no other comes close for me, but then I was reminded of Inside, which is a very close second. Maybe there are others, but Frailty is a personal favorite.
Someone already said it, but I'd say Parents if that counts. Randy Quaid is actually pretty frightening in this, cannibal or not. Plus, it has two of my favorite scenes ever. The dream sequence with blood pouring from the refrigerator and the arm coming out of the garbage disposal, and the shot that starts with Sandy Dennis screaming and ends outside of the house with Dad pulling into the driveway are both brilliant.
Poltergeist, I guess, for me. If it fits the criteria (which I'm not sure it does ...)
If Poltergeist won't do, then I'll just say Basic Instinct because rhett already mentioned it above. Don't think I'd call Basic Instinct domestic horror either, though .. :/ Bah, rhett's word is truth!
Best domestic horror? The Shining's Jack Torrance's relationship with Danny is SO CREEPY! One of the reasons that movie gets scarier on repeat viewings is knowing right from the beginning (hey, like THE STEPFATHER!) that this Dad is gonna flip out ultimately, and everything else he does is just holding back. "I would NEVER hurt you, Danny. NEVER." :cry:
