What are some really good horror movies?

Horror movies are the best kinds of movies, but lately I’ve seen a handful of really lousy ones. I’m also pretty disappointed with how lots of movies these days are rated PG13 just so they can make more money. Preferably something supernatural as opposed to slasher-ish. :)

    i saw this japanese movie called reincarnation and OMGGG IT WAS SOOOOOOOO FREAKIN SCARY!! they say that the scariest movies come from japan, and it’s so true. i cant even explain how ridiculously terrifying that movie was.

    it was in japanese and had english subtitles, and i **** subtitles, but i swear this was the one movie that it was soooo worth it.

    the descent

  12. twilightdogstar Says:

    The Descent is pretty good – not overly gory (which is great for me as I can’t stand gore) but definitely very creepy and made me jump quite a lot. And it’s slightly more supernatural than slasher.

  13. Saravanan P Says:

    1. Psycho, 1960. Alfred Hitchcock’s shocking masterpiece, starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh, was revolutionary because it switched the emphasis of horror films from the supernatural to the psychological. Bernard Herrmann’s moody score greatly enhances the terror. Perkins reprised his Norman Bates role in three sequels. They were interesting failures.

    2. The Bride of Frankenstein, 1935. Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein monster is the most tragic figure in horror history. In this film, he tries to threaten his maker into creating a mate for him. In some ways, the effeminate Dr. Pretorious functions as a mate for the doctor, and gives the film a clever *** subtext. Better than the 1931 Frankenstein in every way. Gods and Monsters, the biopic about the film’s director, sheds some light on the making of the film. This film was brilliantly parodied in Young Frankenstein.

    3. The Night of the Living Dead, 1968. George Romero’s terrifying zombie film captures the authentic feel of a documentary and it inspired countless inferior imitations, including a terrible 1990 remake. The scene involving a zombie girl dispatching her dad is one of the most horrifying sequences in film history. Followed by the worthwhile Dawn of the Dead and disappointing Day of the Dead. The anniversary edition adds newly shot footage, which dilutes and diminishes the film.

    4-5. Nosferatu the Vampyre, 1979 and Nosferatu, 1922. F. W. Murnau’s silent original makes great use of expressionistic lighting. Max Schreck is the repulsive and most pathetic vamp in film history. Werner Herzog’s eerie remake leaves every other modern vampire film in the dust

    6. Rosemary’s Baby, 1968. Roman Polanski’s dark, funny. tale of
    the birth of a demon child has a clear, pro-feminist message. Stars
    Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes.

    7. The Innocents, 1961. Classy, psychologically complex adaptation of Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw, stars Deborah Kerr and Michael Redgrave.

    8. The Exorcist, 1973. William Friedkin’s horrifying tale of demonic possession of the little girl (Linda Blair) has convincing makeup and terrific special effects. The restored version, released in 2000, adds some terrific scenes but they don’t work in the context of the film.

    9. Freaks, 1932. Early horror-film master Tod Browning gathered a cast of real-life sideshow performers for this creepy film about a group of freaks who get revenge on the evil, attractive characters. Original version was severely cut in the U.S. and banned in Britain.

    10. Jaws, 1975. I had to cover my eyes the first time I saw this well-acted, suspenseful thriller as a kid. Steven Spielberg directed Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss. It won three Oscars, but I liked it anyway
    .
    11. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, 1932. Frederic March’s performance as a brilliant doctor and his monstrous alter ego deservedly won an Oscar. The silent John Barrymore version is also worth checking out.

    12. Peeping Tom, 1960. This disturbing and arty horror film
    caused such a scandal that it almost ended the career of its brilliant
    director, Michael Powell.

    13. Frankenstein 1931.James Whale’s classic about a man-made monster is certainly less frightening than when it was first released, but it still works as a superb tragedy. Boris Karloff makes an expressive monster, and the under appreciated Colin Clive is outstanding as the maniacal mad doctor (Who could forget his It’s alive!! rant?) Still it pales in comparison to its sequel Bride of Frankenstein. One of the most horrifying scenes (involving the drowning of a blind girl) was initially cut then restored in 1987.

    14. The Blair Witch Project, 1999. This heavily improvised pseudo-documentary was the most realistic and memorable horror flick of the ’90s. It features a great use of hand held camera and other cinema verite techniques.
    .
    15. Carrie, 1976. Brian De Palma’s stylish Stephen King adaptation includes a classic prom scene, which has been endlessly imitated. It has an early John Travolta appearance, from back when he was still cool. The sequel has some good moments too.

    16. Curse of the Demon, 1958. Jacques Tourneur created this
    riveting, masterfully orchestrated tale of supernatural suspense.

    17. The Bad Seed, 1956. Mom believes that her mom’s murderous tendencies were passed on to her seemingly innocent nine-year-old daughter. Patty McCormick gives one of the most sinister performances in horror history. An important precursor to Psycho.

    18. The Mummy, 1932. Karl Freund’s expressionistic lighting and Boris Karloff’s performance make this the only must-see mummy film. The more adventure oriented 1999 film with the same name seems juvenile and artless in comparison.

    19. Spirits of the Dead, 1969. Three excellent short adaptations of Poe stories by three respected European directors. Federico Fellini’s episode, Toby Dammit is a su

    Yotsuya Ghost Story

    Not a type you want to jump with loud music. I think it’s the forerunner of modern Japanese horror movies. It has been remade many times so far, and I saw the 50s or the 60s version.
