For sure, "The Exorcist" is on the list. Also, "Rosemary's Baby", one of the all time scariest movies ever.
I suppose if I really wanted to get scared, I could cue up a bunch of Progressive Commercials with that Flo dame. She is definitely related to the folks in "Night of the Living Dead"
Blair Witch Project? (That movie is scary, but they really didn't have any good reason to go down the profanity route so much...) Thumbs DOWN!!
I'm all ears!!
I’ve been checking the TV listings every day and I can’t find It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown on any station.
I just picked up “Dark Star” from Amazon - Carpenter’s first flick!
He also did “They Live” which is kinda campy-scary, worth watching a couple times a year...
"An American Werewolf in London"
"The Pit and the Pendulum" (Vincent Price)
"Salem's Lot" (1979 miniseries)
"Nosferatu" (1922) can be downloaded free from http://www.archive.org/
YES! Tomorrow night on ABC at 8:00!
“Blood on Satan’s Claw” - underrated British horror from 1971.
The whole movie is right here:
If you want FUN horror movies, try “Fearless Vampire Killers” or “Phantom of the Paradise”!
If you want some great 70’s cheese with some genuinely scary bits, try “The Devil’s Rain”.
Arsenic and Old Lace
>Have you seen Zombieland yet? Awesome “funny scary” imho.
I laughed like crazy at “Army of Darkness” the first time I saw it..maybe I’d had a few.
Agreed, any Vincent Price movie, especially with Roger Corman directing.
Friday the 13th...(1980)
Scariest TV: Walking Dead (on AMC-TV)
Best non-horror Halloween Movie: October Sky
Best series: Dark Shadows (1991 remake is better than the 1960s soap opera)
But my choice for scariest and most well-made: King Kong (Peter Jackson 2005 version)
28 Days movies are also good (but keep in mind that the first one was made on a low budget, but still very, very good.) if you like the post apocalyptic thing.
Aliens (the 2nd movie)
If you just want to be grossed out, try “The Human Centipede”
And I’ll throw in “The Dunwich Horror” and “The Wicker Man” [the -original- versions] for good measure.
Bram Stokers Dracula Gary Oldham rocks!
