Favorite paranormal movies?

26 posts in this topic

'Tis the time of year for spooky movie goodness....

Are you an old movie fan? More into musicals or spoofs... can't go a Halloween season without watching an old Freddy or Jason fave? Gotta eat up the ghosts?

Lets pop up some corn, eat candy, and share movies...

I start out the thread with Nightmare on Elm Street...

Lots of weird film over the decades....I've always liked the original b&w versions of many of the old ones.....Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman, and the Mummy.....The Haunting (of Hill House)... The Thing (From another world) ....The Fly.....etc.  Rosemary's Baby, Forbidden Planet, Day The Earth Stood Still.

Of newer ones ....Altered States, Pans Labyrinth, The Ninth Gate, Twin Peaks (original series), most of the early Lynch films ,  The Others, Mothman Prophecies,,,,,,too many to name.

I like the Bram Stoker's Dracula and the new Hill House. The 80s version of The Thing.

Pan's Labyrinth was great...really disturbing, as Lynch's stuff is. 

Every time The Ninth Gate is on, I can't seem to look away...no matter how many times I see it. 

Mothman just has such a surreal feel to it. Love it. Even though I'm pretty sure they all just saw some owls at night.

Rosemary's Baby was great, as well as Suspiria. I think they should remake and update Rosemary's Baby, but it had better be well done. 

I never watched the original Twin Peaks, but I'm watching the new one. It's very David Lynch weird, of course.

Tourist Trap scared the heck out of me as a kid. It was about some guy with a cheesy wax museum and he had telekinesis, so he could make his mannequins move. 

Now it looks hokey, but it was terrifying back then.

One of my all time favorite paranormal series is Mushi-Shi (two seasons) Japanese anime with subtittles, and it revolves around Mushi Master Ginko, who from a young age is troubled and has his life altered by his relationship with the Mushi.  Ginko travels Japan on foot, being drawn by and drawing to himself, the Mushi spirit creatures that share the island of Japan with humans.  Ginko knows the Mushi as few humans do and his life is a process of always being on the move, helping where he can both humans and mushi.

Like primeval life forms, ephemeral, spiritual, primordial, Mushi are neither plant nor animal completely, yet showing signs of both and coming in myriad forms, where life intersects between human and mushi can cause no small amount of difficulty and strangeness for humans caught in the transcending zones between the worlds.

It is a stellar series.  Softer than your usual paranormal blasting, retching, evil incarnate, violence porn that usually dominates the paranormal genre.
