A Nightmare on Elm Street Halloween Friday the 13th The Grudge Orphan The Exorcist Paranormal Activity The Blair Witch Project The Ring The Human Centipede (I can't spell.. Q_Q) Carrie Pet Sematary (My favorite movie) Cujo The Texas Chainsaw Masacre Hellraiser Candyman Child's Play Saw IT (Anything by Stephan King really) Silent Hill The Shinning
I have no taste for films that have "pop-up horror". Ones that make you think and cringe are the best. My favorite is The Others with Nicole Kidman. The Evil Dead coming out in theaters soon looks good too. Honorable mentions are: The Exorcist, and the original The Thing.
The Others is a very remarkable film from more than just one viewpoint. In an era where you can only impress young horror fanatics with bucket-loads of blood and gross-out effects, this movie actually re-teaches his audience that fear is especially caused by suggestion and the absence of explicit images. The Others is the first intelligent horror film in years, completely relying on atmosphere and eerie set pieces. It's such a relief to finally see a subtle film that is also effective! The acting is great, the plot actually scares you and the directing is solid. The Others is a total winner It's a great movie and i recommendit to any horror movie enthusiast.
Welp, check these really scary horror movies out if you can (since no-one's listed them yet): >The Orphanage/El Orfanato >Suspiria >Let Me In Or "Let The Right One In", since some dislike Americanized stuff >Videodrome >Lars Von Tier's "Antichrist" (has genital mutilation) >Jack Ketchum's "The Girl Next Door" (same as above)
Though if you're the type that's probably thought: "Gore, blood, mutilated genitals, this stuff's getting old. I'm not afraid of ANYTHING anymore!", well... congrats!
You can now personally enjoy *filth, exercising real animal cruelty, human depravity, excrement and degradation... right in the comfort of your own home: (most films are alleged 'snuff' + warning-- be careful watching these films in Australia, New Zealand, Britain, or other countries that ban films: you could get caught, and fined. Oh, and some are have no sense in screen-time = potentially boring most of the time.) *subjective; depending on your POV
August Underground's Mordum August Underground's Penance (for AU films: genital mutilation + see Serbian film warning) Vomit Gore Freaks Guinea Pig 2: Flowers of Blood And Flesh Melancholie Der Engel Cannibal Holocaust (animals killed for film) A Serbian Film (contains incest, necrophilia, paedophilia, 'newborn porn'dafuq) The Green Elephant (free to watch-- I dare you) Vaces Des Noces (otherwise known as the 'Pig F***ing Movie') obvious bestiality and did I mention drinking piss and coprophagia? Philosophy Of A Knife L.A. Zombie (pornographic zombie violence + homophobes be warned) Visitor Q (not really horror, but included for almost every single taboo + lactation) Banned In America/Traces Of Death (contains real footage of death)
Not a sicko or anything, but I probably spent waaay too much time studying disturbing crap for New Zealand's "Censor For A Day" + too much time on IMDb. BTW, the real horror is not just the fact these films were created, but the fact you watched them (if you did)!
