Horror movie general
What are some good horror movies to watch?
I saw From Beyond as a kid, and spent a huge chunk of my young adult life trying to find it again.
Googling "horror movie where that one guy who like a worm wiggling out of his forehead" just was not helping.
I prefer schlock adaptations of Lovecraft to the current trend. You know, none. At all.
Also everyone in this thread watch Re-Animator and Bride of Re-Animator if you haven't. Both GOAT and also starring the great Jeffrey Combs.
Watched The Wicker Man and Terrorvision yesterday. Both were enjoyable, especially The Wicker Man, though I admit, when the musical bits started, it became awkward because they came out of nowhere. Also, is the protagonist suppose to come off as unlikeable? Didn't really feel any sympathy for him at the end.
Watch Hellraiser III tonight. First half was great, but the last half was fucking awful. About to watch TCM II. What am I in for? Is Dennis Hopper batshit in this as he usual?
>horror movie where that one guy who like a worm wiggling out of his forehead
You realize "From Beyond" is literally the first search result term for that right?
>there will never be another decade of horror movie perfection like there was in the 80's
Holy shitting fuck. I almost forgot about that one.
I've never squirmed so goddamn much and felt so uncomfortable during dialogue between characters.
Theres these two people, one of them is Ashley Judd. And some guy.
They lock themselves in an apartment, and shit slowly, slowly goes completely fucking nuts with conspiracy shit and things under the guys skin that may or may not be there and.... bleagh.
>my face during the last half
Watch the sequels except the 4th one I think.
I say don't watch the 4th one because it is literally just stock footage and only about 2 minutes of original footage.
Angela is amazing in 2 & 3
I don't know if it really counts as horror, but Altered States had me enraptured the whole way through.
Just watched this, it wasn't scary and it felt really dated, had some cool scenery though, and I'm still not sure what the fuck it was about
The new blu ray version of this is so great. One of the best trips ever.
>There is nothing wrong with jumpscares when used correctly
True but most movies seem to just rely on them, i want that unnerving tension, anyone can get scared when something pops out in front of you.
Actually, Escape From New York is mine.
The Thing is probably one of the only movies that has actually made me uneasy. Then there also are movies that has scared me, like Fire in the Sky, never ever watch that shit. Why the fuck did I tell you. Just forget it.
they live i fucking dig but still i gotta say either prince of darkness or in the mouth of madness for me.
yeah, /hor/ threads are guaranteed to be shit. thank god this isn't one.
then there's ghosts of mars which is like so bad it's good nostalgia tier from growing up.
>An Arizona logger mysteriously disappears for five days in an alleged encounter with a flying saucer in 1975.
Yesterday I saw Lovely Molly, what did you think about?
At first I was like "Oh well she is just crazy for all the drugs and stuff" but then at the end you see that weird horse man outside the house soooo what the fuck!?
This one. Just saw it and highly recommend it. Unnerving tension to spare.
Friends convinced me to stream this the other night. It is the second worst movie I've ever seen. Not because of the controversey, but just because of how bland and uninspired it was and the fact that half the cast were literal prostitutes hired for it.
>when the musical bits started, it became awkward because they came out of nowhere
I think that's the point. It gives you the sense that the people on the island aren't quite right.
I watched Hellraiser for the first time last night, and I thought it was pretty good, but I was hoping to see more of the cenobytes(spelling?). Which sequels are worth watching, and which are more cenobyte focused?
For those that haven't seen the 1980 version of Maniac yet, watch it late one night this October. Joe Spinell is easily one of the creepiest, convincing psychopaths in film history.
The 2012 version with Elijah Wood is also surprisingly well made and worth a watch also.
elijah wood has been in some decent movies lately. obviously i am a pleb but i liked maniac and this other one he was in called grand piano. i haven't seen open window yet but i'm interested.
Torn between Escape from New York and The Fog for me, personally.
Well there's The Haunting...
...No. How about Psycho?
...Okay maybe not. How about Wait Until Dark?
Shit, this is harder than I thought it was gonna be.
My first result on this search was literally this thread.
