It's horror movie time, any suggestions of good (maybe obscure) horror movies?

I just watched "The Wickerman" from 1973. It was pretty weird, kinda creepy. It's supposed to be filmed on a island in Scotland, and I think most of the actors are Scotish. It's got some musical parts, some of which are pretty irritating, but it adds to the weirdness. Someone reviewed it as "The Citizen Cane" of horror movies. I kinda see where they were coming from.

I just saw that they're remaking The Evil Dead, supposed to be much more violent and less campy than the original:

ha, i recently rewatched Killer Clowns from OutserSpace. Not quite as scary as I remember it as a child, but it was very nostalgic. I also watched some of the first Leprechaun recently, with Jennifer Aniston. She was a much worse actor then (not that she's great now)

Yeah, it's widely accepted as the beginning to the modern day "slasher" films, followed closely by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

watch basket case.

whatever you do, don't ever watch death bed: the bed that eats.

worst movie i've ever seen. and not bad in a cheesy horror film with bad acting bad. it's just awful.

oh also, night of the lepus. although saying that is a horror movie is kind of pushing it. anything with giant killer bunnies is scary.

Check out V/H/S if you don't mind "fount footage" horror films. It's way better than other 1st person horror films like Blair Witch or Paranormal Activity. It is an independent film that released this year so it may be hard to come across but it's pretty good.

I also recommend the original 1980s Fright Night if you haven't seen it. Probably the best vampire movie I can think of.

An American Werewolf in London is another great one. The only werewolf movie I've seen where the wolf didn't look like a guy in a suit/makeup or a CGI fest. Also, the best werewolf transformation scene ever made.

^Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is a great comedy horror. When I saw it on Netflix I thought it would be absolutely awful but it turned out to be one of the funniest movies I've seen all year.

Some of these may be more thriller than horror, but:

Triangle - mind fuck
Antikörper - serial killer
The Poughkeepsie Tapes - serial killer
The Orphanage - spanish horror flick, probably most traditional style horror on my list
Audition -more gore style
The Dark Hours - mind fuck
Funny Games - more realistic horror


None of these are the gore porn variety horrors (outside of Audition, though it actually does the gore porn in a good way in my opinion). If you prefer stuff like Nightmare on Elm St or Zombies, then my list probably isn't for you

The Shrine basically seems like someone saw The Wickerman and said "I can do better."

It's about some journalists investigating some disappearances occurring around a creepy pagan community. It gets pretty horrific.

The Woman is about a country lawyer douche who catches a feral cannibal woman and locks her in his family's cellar possibly with the intention of civilizing her. It's really fucking good.

Oh and it made this happen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3lUAZLB4JY#t=1m09s

I liked Audition. Even went out and bought the DVD. But it all depends on if you're getting a set of movies to watch alone or with a group. If you show it to a group, that's the kind of film that some people will think moves too slowly in order to reach the eventual payoff. That's actually half the point of the film imo, but some won't appreciate that.

High Tension: I watch this one pretty much every year during Halloween. Refreshing take on the suspense/slasher genre.

Inside & Martyrs are the two that I show when the group thinks they aren't afraid to watch anything or think they've seen the same gore a million times. These go to a dark place.

Hard Candy: A look at the role reversal of typical predator and prey.

Fire in the Sky: Could be because some of the scenes scared the shit out of me when I was younger, but I remember it being a good alien film.

Session 9: Watched this due to the interest in film locations, and it turned out to be really good. All about the mind making enemies of one another.

I'm going to also add "Frontier(s)" and "Megan is Missing" as recommendations that I just remembered.

Megan is Missing was interesting because the entire film used some sort of POV shot the entire time. And it seemed very realistic, maybe even based on real events.

Frontier(s) is just a brutal survival film. Kinda made me think of a modern Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

watched The Woman a few weeks ago, its pretty crazy. I enjoyed it

watched session 9 as well. I really wanted to like it because its right up my alley, but it was too slow for the first hour or so and then the payoff was just not good enough to make up for that

Martyrs was probably up there as the most fucked up movie I have ever seen. Then I watched the movie "A Serbian Film". It isn't really a horror movie, more of a suspense/thriller but way worse.

Martyrs was messed up in a way that I could appreciate as film that got a reaction from me. It made me think about it days after I had seen it.

A Serbian Film was messed up in a way that I didn't want to continue watching

^Yeah that's exactly my thoughts too. A Serbian Film seemed like it had all that crazy stuff happen for shock value. Martyrs seemed a lot more legitimate about it, especially since it makes you picture yourself in such situations.

Lots of good suggestions here, and they're all welcome, my tastes are pretty broad, although i'm not a big fan of torture porn (i decided to turn-off the original "I spit on your grave" about halfway through, and that's probably not that disturbing compared to some). A Serbian Film sounds a bit too disturbing for me, but now I'm curious.

has anyone seen "the changeling"? what did you think.

I finally watched the original Black Christmas (a few days before christmas) and like it a lot.

I'm pretty excited that a remastered Texas Chainsaw Massacre is coming to theatres:

Oh man, we watched Pontypool last night, and it was a lot of fun. It had some decent tension and for the most part it's shot in one location. It gets a little ridiculous in the third act, but I definitely recommend it.

I watched Hellraiser from beginning to end for the first time. A lot of cheesy dialogue, but it's done pretty well. I'm sure it was all the buzz in Fangoria back in '87.

Apparently Kevin Smith's Tusk was recently released. Anybody hear anything about it?
