    My Top 10 Favorite HORROR Movies (in alphabetical order):

    The Brood
    Dawn of the Dead
    The Exorcist
    Hellraiser
    Santa Sangre
    Shivers
    Suspiria
    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
    The Thing
    Videodrome

    (Evil Dead would be my number 11. The Wicker Man and Dead Ringers would certainly make the list, but I don't consider them to really be HORROR movies.)


    10 of the Horror Movies I Hate (in no particular order):

    The Gate
    Leprechaun (all of them)
    Friday the 13th (all of them, but especially Jason Takes Manhattan)
    Children of the Corn (all of them)
    Lucio Fulci's Zombie
    Demons (both of them, but especially number 2)
    Jaws IV: The Revenge
    The Haunting (the Jan de Bont remake)
    A Nightmare on Elm Street part 2
    A Return to Salem's Lot

    And, of course, the very worst: THE FLY II and I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. TFII for probably being the worst sequel ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting audience, and ISKWYDLS for making me fucking furious for paying for my ticket at the movie theatre.

    To AndrewBBD: I kinda agree with you on Fright Night. I loved it when I was 11-12 years old, so I bought it on DVD a couple of weeks ago in order to see it again. I was VERY disappointed; it hasn't aged well at all. The dance sequence with Chris Sarandon and Amanda Bearse at the disco was particularly painful to watch.

    Favorites:
    The Thing (Carpenter)
    Dawn of the Dead
    Videodrome
    Exorcist 3
    Alien
    Evil Dead
    City of the Living Dead
    Shivers
    Rabid

    I could go on with ones I love...

    Least Favorites (mostly to do with having them built up so much before seeing them):

    Exorcist
    Last House on the Left
    Suspiria
    The Beyond
    Blair Witch Project (I still say the film is just a parable of what happens when you leave a woman in charge of the map. You are asking for it...:))
    <b>ANY TEEN SLASHER FILM WHERE THEY DON'T SHOW GRATUITOUS TITS AND ASS</b> :)
    All of the Nightmare on Elm St Films. In fact, every time I see a Wes Craven film I previously liked when young, I discover I think it just crap nowdays.
    All sequels to The Howling. My god, what was Howling 2 supposed to be about?

    Santa Sangre

    To flesh-huntr: About a DVD release of Santa Sangre, I was just wondering about this myself. I have an old and worn VHS copy, and would love to have this on DVD. It's my favorite movie, it's just so totally bizarre and wonderfully perverse :D
     
  12. Movies that make Peter smile :) (although 10 isn't quite enough):

    Fright Night (of course...Andrew BBD...for shame!)
    The Exorcist

    Evil Dead
    Evil Dead 2
    Evil Dead 3: Army Of Darkness
    Nightmare On Elm Street
    Halloween
    Phantasm
    Psycho
    (Give props to the master of the maccabre)

    and I gotta sweet spot for the new versions of:

    House On Haunted Hill
    Thi13teen Ghosts


    Movie that make Peter hurl :mad: (or I just don't like 'n' whatnot)

    Alright, in no particular order:

    Top 10

    -Dawn Of The Dead
    -Evil Dead
    -The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    -Rosemary's Baby
    -The Omen
    -The Wolf Man
    -Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman (Just get a kick out of it for some reason!)
    -Friday The 13th IV: The Final Chapter (F-13's are a guilty pleasure of mine)
    -Evil Dead II
    -Army Of Darkness

    Halloween and Night Of The Living Dead easily could have made my best of list as well, with Ginger Snaps being a "new" favorite also.


    Least Favorite:
    -Children Of The Living Dead
    -Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Next Generation
    -Nightmare on Elm Street 5 (?) Freddy's Dead
    -Urban Legend II (The first one was no Excorcist either, but the sequel was even worst)
    -Valentine (Another recent entry, but I had such low expectaions to begin with and it still dispointed)
    -JAWS 3-2
    -JAWS The Revenge (I admit, I only saw the end of it where it turns out everyone some how survived)
    -Silent Night Deadly Night II (I'm pretty sure that was the name. 80% of the movie was flash backs from the first one)

    8 is all my brain will allow.

    • Dracula 2000 (please don't make a sequel)
    • Unbreakable (horror or not i hate it)
    • Opera (did i say that?)
    • Rawhead Rex (yawn)
    • Eaten Alive (hooper)

    LOL! By all means, New Moon Rising sucked gargantuan donkey dicks. Howling II was a crushing disappointment. (Sybil Danning's presence dulled the pain a bit.):D The beginning of the end for The Howling series.

    Foxx, I share your pain.
