Not a fan of Horror, but The Shining and Rosemary's Baby are legitimately great movies.

I'll offer something up that's a little different. It was a low budget movie called The Lady in White. It was filmed in Western NY and growing up it was a well known ghost story in my part of the woods. Here's the Trailer (warning hooky late 80's style):




It's a nice looking period movie that evokes Halloween. It's also suitable for the whole family (kids above 10) and it's scares are more subtle then blood spattering all over. if you want to check out an old fashioned ghost story this is good place to start.

"The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" - #1 answer

"The Serpent and The Rainbow"
Probably the the most frightening scene ever (as opposed to scary) with the live burial of William Pullman while temporarily paralyzed with the zombie drug, experienced from his perspective. Also, the most painful scene ever, when Zakes Mokae encourages Pullman to "stick around".

"Dead Silence"
My son and I caught this creepy flick on TV a few years back during Halloween weekend, I think it came on at 2 AM. When the puppets in a dark abandoned theater start moving on their own and talking to you at night, why in the world do you decide to keep exploring?

Donnie Wahlberg with some nice comic relief as the suspicious local detective, and Bob Gunton could definitely use some color in his cheeks.

I'm a big horror film fan. Here are my thoughts:

These are some of my favorites. All 3 in my top 10, with Texas Chainsaw Massacre below the others (both the original and the remake, as both have their pros and cons).

The Shining is a classic, albeit very long. I own Rosemary's Baby (heard it was good, so I bought it, and I absolutely hated it - one of the few movies I never finished because it was so bad).

I'll need to check that out!

Insidious is really good. Gave me the feeling of a new-and-improved Evil Dead with the graphics and sound.

Still need to see that. I've heard it's really good and heard comments similar to yours, as well.

Haven't heard of the first two, but I have Dead Silence and really like it. Also, Wicked Little Things and Dark Ride were two others released as part of the horror film package that I liked.

Some of my favorites:
  1. Halloween series (the Rob Zombie remakes of Halloween I and II aren't bad, either).
  2. House of 1,000 Corpses (the sequel, Devil's Rejects, isn't nearly as good - same family, different plot)
  3. High Tension (one of my favorites; used to be a cult classic but now it's getting more popular)
  4. The Exorcist (old fashioned horror, but still a classic)
  5. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (somewhat of a mockumentary-turned-horror film where a news reporter follows around the local serial killer; not a well-known movie, but highly recommended if you're a horror film fan)
  6. Saw series (people think these movies are all gore; but if you can get past the horrible acting in Saw I, you will appreciate all the twists and the intellectual aspect of the series)
  7. Nightmare on Elm Street series (classic, but need to watch several of them to appreciate it as a series)
  8. The Strangers (one of the more tense, jumpy movies out there)
  9. The Grudge (I haven't yet seen the original foreign film, Ju-on, but this one is good in its own right)
  10. The Descent (not as much horror as it was action/scifi, but still good)
  11. Scream (one of the true horror classics, still good to this day)
  12. Silence of the Lambs (a little slower than your typical horror film, but one of my favorites)

Max Schreck (maximum horror in German) nailed it. Of course you know he was a vampire in real life, at least according to Shadow of the Vampire (2000) a great film in its own right.

So you like slasher films. I would have thought your favorite would have been Vincent Price's Pit and the Pendulum (1961).

LOL - may have been before your time. Starred Don Knotts, right after he left The Andy Griffith Show. I'm a sucker for haunted house comedies.

To that end, I thought of two more from the 1960's that I try to catch if they're on this month, both featuring Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, and Basil Rathbone:

"Tales of Terror" (three separate Poe stories)
"Comedy of Terrors"

May I assume The Tell-Tale Heart is included?

Not a huge fan of most of the newer horror movies. Thought insidious, conjuring and paranormal movies were sometimes good but not scary /nothing special

The Exorcist scared the heck out of me. Saw it when I was 8

The Shining is my fav horror movie of all time

For new ones I liked The Ring a lot

Unfortunately, no - actually, they're three stories I'd never read, although one of them combines "The Cask Of Amontillado" in the storyline:

The three sections/stories are:
"Morella"
"The Black Cat" (with Cask of Amontillado)
"The Facts in The Case of M. Valdemar"

"The Black Cat" also has elements reminiscent of The Tell-Tale Heart, plus some cool hallucination effects as seen through the eyes of Peter Lorre.

Exorcist, scary as all get out but I never associated it as a Halloween type movie. Seems more Christmassy to me.

Not a horror flick, but a family type that the wife and I enjoy is Hocus Pocus.
