Definitely agree with the ones above.

Some of my favorites that weren't listed

The Thing
Rosemary's Baby
Omen (all of them)
Hellraiser I & II
The Brood
Nightmare on Elm Street

Hard to pick one but it would probably be The Thing.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Excorist is the horror movie for me, though I've always enjoyed the Nightmare on Elm Street series as well as the Child's Play series.

Anyway guys, did anyone catch the remake of Dawn of the Dead? I thought it was GREAT! Personally I like zombie movies, so 28 Days Later is way up there for me as well. That is, "smart" zombie movies... Resident Evil made me want to vomit... then get drunk and vomit again.

Actually, all of George A. Romero's films are awesome... I haven't seen Land of the Dead yet, anyone catch it?


I haven't seen the DOTD remake, but the original was awesome. I wasn't so interested in the remake, since I felt like they were ripping off the "running zombies" theme from 28 Days Later.

Talking zombies, I can't believe I left off Night of the Living Dead - classic. The scene where the mother dies in the basement put the zap on my brain for weeks. A great ending as well. That movie farked me up when I was 8.

The Thing was a great movie too. I really like those sci-fi flicks from that era, like Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Them, and the Blob.

Yeah, I agree. The first two Evil Dead movies definitely have some genuine scares though. I love the simplicity of the premise - dude combats evil in a cabin in the woods. Pure genius! :-D

Don't forget, Night of the Living Dead was actually a superb film in reference to social commentary... it was one of the first movie to have not only a black man as a protaganist, but as the level-headed hero. It was truly a groundbreaking film. It wasn't just man vs. zombie... it was man vs. man. Awesome!

Also, I recommend the Dawn of the Dead remake. While the acting may be sloppy, as most horror movies have, the remake does the original justice and it was immensely entertaining. It also has one of the best special features I've seen in a long time on a DVD... in the movie a guy holed up in the ammunition store across from the mall where the survivors are is making a movie about his experience. While this isn't clear in the movie, you can watch the footage that he made as a special feature and it is great!

Check it out!

True, true. Wasn't Romero's initial inspiration for zombies the idea that consumer America is brain dead or something? And the zombies were some type of metaphor for a country full of strip malls, chain outlets and mindless consumers gorging on mass culture. I don't know about all that, but it sure led to a cool product. ;-D

I thought of another one: Shaun of the Dead. I was watching it by myself one night, and my girlfriend got home just in time to see the grossest 30 seconds in the movie. :-D

My favorite part of Dead Alive (Braindead) was the little fetus guy running around making havoc. Although both dinner scenes are pretty warped too. A classic in it's own right but wouldn't rank up there with one of my favorites. Top notch gore fest though. ;-D
