T-Mobile now has the Amityville Horror and Carrie themes available as Caller Tunes. I so had to get them. They also had Rosemary's Baby but it did not sound exactly right *sigh*

I think Nosferatu is one of the best horror movies ever made.  It portrays the vampyre as noted in legend...a corpse...foul and horrible.  Also, the black and white film gives the movie a creepy and shadowy atmosphere..you would expect.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

John Carpenter's "The Thing" was one of the rare movies to give me chills.  So I guess you can use that as an example?

Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2 are by far my favorite. Other than that, I'd say Nosferatu, Psycho, Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Shaun of the Dead, 30 Days of Night, Poltergeist, The Exorcist and the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

I think right now though, the best horror films are foreign, especially Asian ones. Other than that I'm not usually scared by horror movies. I'm more creeped out by subtle movies like The Sixth Sense.

I looove horror movies, and always get myself so worked up before seeing one, then after its over I am disappointed in how un-scary it was.

The only movie that I was somewhat scared at was 28 days later, But I loooove zombie movies and anything that has to do with apocalyptic events.

I'm with you!  I love scary movies but they always seem to disappoint me.  Like Quarantine...if it would have had a stronger plot and a triumphant ending, that movie would have been excellent.  I thought Hostel was awesome in the gore department.  I tend to find realistic scarymovies to be more frightning.  Like Devil's Rejects...crazy people like that probably do exist somewhere!  ROB ZOMBIE is clearly insane.  SAW 1 was bananas, too!  The rest of the installations lost me, 'sept I'm always down for a good "gore-fest".  Speaking of which- you gotta check out "MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN".  It's gore-tastic!

If religion contained any truth, it could be ridiculed, insulted, even defiled without being diminished in any way. Its truth would shine through undimmed, unblemished, shaming those who abused it into silence. But that's not how things are. Religion is prickly, it's intolerant, it's ultra-defensive precisely because it's brittle and fragile.- Pat Condell

  • Love is one of the greatest unexplained-mysteries of all time, it can give so much joy and cause so much pain, yet no mind can grasp how or why.

The Exorcist is still number one for me.

Here's my list in no particular order :

1. Original "Dawn of the Dead"
2. Cannibal Holocaust
3. Night of the living dead (Both original and 1990 remake)
4. The Thing (Carpenter version)
5. High Tension
6. The Devils Rejects
7. Halloween (original)
8. Zombi 2

There are others that are good, but those are the ones that I can watch multiple times...

The Ring is one of the best script I've read.. It's well told and better dialogue with intelligent twists to boot, unlike Ringu. The film kicks from beginning to end as well, unlike most "horror" films in this current century.

For sure "The Exorcist" I'm still afraid of the dark from that movie. No movie has ever scared me like that but here are some that gave me a twinge.

28 Days
The Ring
Hellraiser
Nightmare on Elm Street

Well if one has to follow the rules of Main stream normal and lack of freedom of Spirit, and was suppressed not to ever express one’s freedom and told to never color outside of the Lines, I suppose then that the meaning of “Horror” means what the Industry dictates it too.

However, I chose these movies because being a Man of free will and artistic abilities to see and think outside of the box, I can for myself lay claim that these are in fact to me-- “Horror” Movies,-- especially the Number one Movie that I have Chosen and listed at top “Fatal Attraction” by far the most realistic thus the most frightening of all Movies to me brings me cold shivers up and down my spine.  I never wish a Psychotic person upon anyone, and if you have ever had one latch on, even as a brief encounter, you will fully understand my Movie choices and my top pick.
