for any fellow fans of the Friday The 13th franchise, I definately reccommend picking up "Crystal Lake Memories" from Peter Bracke.

Great thread. I have to chime in on this one. I hated Blair Witch. It took about a 1/2 hour for the 3 of them to annoy me so much that I wanted them dead.

Some of my favorites, in no particular order, are:

The Evil Dead (1981, Directed by Sam Raimi)
Evil Dead II (1987, Directed by Sam Raimi)
28 Days Later (2002, Directed by Danny Boyle)
Night of the living Dead (1968, Directed by Dean Lachiusa & George A. Romero)
Dawn of the Dead (1978, Written and Directed by George A. Romero)
Day of the dead (1985, Written and directed by George A. Romero)
Land of the Dead (2005, Written and directed by George A. Romero)
Friday the 13th (1980, Directed by Sean S. Cunningham)
Nosferatu (1922 Directed by F.W. Murnau)
Phantasm (1979, Directed by Don Coscarelli)
Hellraiser (1987, Directed by Clive Barker)
The Thing (1982, Directed by John Carpenter)
An American Werewolf in London (1981, Written and Directed by John Landis)
Re-animator (1985, Directed by Stuart Gordon)
Rosemary's Baby (1968, Directed by Roman Polanski)
Haute Tension (2005, Directed by Alexandre Aja)
Frailty (2001, Directed by Bill Paxton)
Dead Alive (1992, Directed by Peter Jackson)
Shaun of the Dead (2004, Directed by Edgar Wright)
Black Sheep (2006, Directed by Jonathan King)

I'm sure there are more that I've missed but I'm stopping before this gets ridiculously long.

That's the best thing about one of my favourites - Halloween. It's just some huge lumbering maniac with a knife stalking people. It's subtle. No need for extra gore/special effects (not that special effects were used as much in the 70s) to make it scary, it already was. You knew what was killing people, but at the same time you didn't really know too much (especially since Michael Myers' identity and connection to his sister were not fully revealed in the first movie).

But I will add I did not like Blair Witch for the same reason stated a few posts ago... there were only two or three scenes worth watching anyway.. and even then they were nothing special.

"Night of the Living Dead" is hardly a spin off of "Dawn of the Dead."

"Dawn" is the sequel to "Night."

"Night" was made in 1968, and was one of the first zombie movies ever made. It literally kick-started a whole new genre of horror films.

"Night" was followed by "Dawn" then by "Day of the Dead" then by "Land of the Dead" and finally, last year, by "Diary of the Dead."

Good God! Do you just purchase these blindly simply because they are horror films? Why do you have so much crap? Why would you buy *any* of the Amityville sequels? They are beyond horrible.

Wrong Turn 2?

White Noise 2?

Poltergiest III?

Omen IV: The Awakening?

Why so much utter crap?

aha! Rosemary's Baby...

remember the scene where she finds her baby and all the old farts are chanting "hail satan"?

I know it was supposed to be a serious point but its one of the funniest moments I've ever seen in movies

OK, enough is enough. I'm anything but homphobic, I don't buy into pre-conceived notions as to what guys should like, if I had a son and he rejected hockey for the works of Gilbert&Sullivan, I'd love him anyways, but favorite romantic comedies ?

If I call a lodge meeting, every now and then I call up some old buddies and just say 'lodge meeting Thursday', reminiscient of old Flintstone epiosed except with beer,
and asked what our favorite romantic comedies were, the table would go silent. Not a good silence. You can be in touch with your female side, you can even touch your female side, but your favorite romantic comedies ? You're treading in dangerous and frilly waters my friend.

For full horror, go Lucio Fulci and be ready to puke your guts.

Troma are good the first few times but then get... you know, always the same. B-movies are fun and everything but you can't never categorize it as ''good''.

Oh yeah, I forgot. My favourite is Dawn of The Dead. Cream of horror.
I probably should have put the sarcasm icon after i mentioned you guys were rookies....and it wasnt directed at everyone
The message I was trying to give in the end was meant for the people who seem to mention only "mainstream" stuff. Although there is good mainstream stuff some of the best horror is things most people have not heard of.

I like Fulci. City of the living dead had a scene where someone is trowing their intestines...although i wouldnt call that horror its a scene i'll always remember...

Dawn is good as well...man all this horror talk and i feel like watching something tonight

I would say night of the living dead was responsible for "modern" zombies but is far from being one of the first zombie movies. Look on IMDB and there are plenty of zombie movies (as bad as most i have watched are) prior to NOTLD.

This more directed towards others as I'm sure you know but:

...and some people would rather forget but Night/Dawn have been remade and from what i hear so will Day...
I find the return of the living dead "fun" and they are one of the many spinoffs off of NOTLD.

Zombie 2,3,4,5 are others...and the list goes on and on. Part of the reason for a lot of ripoffs that can mention NOTLD is the film was not copyrighted and is actually public domain.

The "Day of the Dead" remake has not only already been re-made, but it's also already been released.

The film, despite a big budget and a "name" cast (Mena Suvari, Ving Rhames, Nick Cannon) was so awful that the studio opted against a theatrical release and sent it straight-to-DVD.

Of note to horror buffs, the film was directed by Steve Miner who made "Friday the 13th Part 2," "Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3-D" and "Halloween: H20."

Also, in 2005, "Day of the Dead 2: Contagium" was released. You might ask how could there be a "Day of the Dead 2" when the original "Day of the Dead" was itself a Part 3, and it had already been sequelized that year with "Land of the Dead," but in asking those questions, you'd already have put more thought into it then the filmmakers did.
