I was into horror movies hardcore from when I was 17-21. The first time I saw Scream it got me into the genre, but it's not my favourite. The classics are great: Halloween I and II, Friday the 13th part I and II and the first Nightmare on Elm Street. The Shinning is a classic, the first Black Friday was suspenseful. The old Italian horror movie Suspiria had a mediocre plot but had great scenery and looked great. Fun movie.

I remember as a kid, watching a movie with a bunch of skeletons riding on big black horses. They had swords and wore big black cloaks. The only part I remember was a guy trying to save a girl who was tied up by roap to something and as he's trying to free here, you can hear the skeletons approaching on their horses to kill them, then the camera zooms into an opening in the woods and the whole pack of them immerge from out of the forest. I think they were making some creepy noises as they rode.

Its probably some cheesy "horror" movie, but as a little kid it freaked me the hell out. I saw the movie in 96 I think.

Anyone have an idea what that movie could be? Thats about the only part I remember about it.

Typo edit: Rope, not roap. lol

Not really a movie, but those Leaf runs to the conference finals scared the crap out of me.

also the silence of the lambs movies and books

gotta say, however, some of the worst and most hilarious movies i have seen have been horror (texas chainsaw massacre comes to mind)

I also have to agree with "Saw 1" It's just so disturbing being chained barefoot in that filthy toilet, ugh! Also that laugh that Jigsaw puppet makes is pretty sick.

2nd would be the "Blair Witch Project" for the creepy factor.

Barely any posts have mentioned any horror movies.

Saw? Hostel?

Ugh. Movies that push shock value and gore because they don't have a truly scary story make me sick. A good scary movie is not one that makes you scream or jump or say "ew that's gross" while you're watching it. It's the strength of the story that makes it truly terrifying (especially when it's realistic to an extent). Without a good story, the jumpy scenes, gory images and other gimmicks leave your mind (well, mine anyway) eventually. A good scary story prevails over time (usually spawning a lot of knockoffs or spinoff type movies along the way. Case in point: Halloween.)

Movies like "The Ring", "The Grudge" and "Saw" are unfortunately defining a generation's interpretation of the horror genre. They're all full of gimmicks, attempts at "shock value" and use the crutch of special effects/gore to try and make audiences forget about a very crucial aspect of any film: the story.

This isn't true of just horror movies of course... it seems like most movies are missing that crucial element.

I saw this topic and had to come over and post since I LOVE cheesey horror films, so my list will contain mostly those. My first two favourites are most definitely:

Jack Frost- Killer Snowman terrorizes small mountain town. Usually known for the "carrot scene" in the bathtub between the snowman and Shannon Elizabeth.

The Ice Cream Man: Starring CLINT HOWARD. One of the main stars in the film is a kid whos supposed to be fat and gets made fun of, but hes not actually fat, you can see that they stuffed a PILLOW under his shirt. They couldnt even cast a real fat kid.

Uncle Sam- Guy dressed as uncle sam killing people
Dead and Breakfeast
The Gingerdeadman- Starring GARY BUSEY, need I say more?

Those are some off the top of my head. As far as what actually scared me, when I was a kid Nightmare on Elm street most definitely.

you guys are rookies...

Check out Dario Argento and then come back and show me what a real Horror movie is....

I recommend "Demons" (which also had a sequel)...

As someone else mentioned it really depends on what you consider a horror movie...

Demons is a different kind of horror movie from saw which is different from nightmare on elm street which is different from the scream movies

Troma movies are "good" if you want to call them that...love B-Horror...

The ones that often keep me at the edge of my seat are the ones where you don't/can't see the '' bad guy '' Ex. Exorcist, the Shinning , Emily Rose, White Noises, Frailty or Blair Witch

Gore =/= horror. Movies like Saw or the Hostel are visually disturbing but they don't scare me much. That's blockbuster entertainment.

The Exorcist is my all time favorite. That movie was too big of a leap forward for the people to handle back in 73. Up there with other classics such as The Shining, The Silence of the Lambs, Psycho and the Village of the Damned.

In recent memory, The Others and The 6th Sense are 2 of the most captivating and well written horror movies I've seen.

If by The Ring, you mean the remake, then I agree. The Grudge was pretty bad though, remake or not.

OMG! Nobody mentioned The Orphanage?!?!?! Saw it yesterday on a surround sound system, and it was quite the experience. I'm not into horror movies, so for me, it has to have a good intelligent story, and that one delivered! I was on the edge for the whole movie, and it was really creepy. There is so much sounds in it, it's incredible!
