Seeing there's a thread for popular films you don't like...i've decided to start one with horror films you do like.

I love all the SAW movies--especially SAW III--yeah the bloodier, the better I say..

Any Friday the 13th, except parts VI-X---

Halloween I-III; Halloween 4 was decent, Halloween 5 was abysmal... Curse of Michael Myers was a joke... H2O was an improvement with actors I actually knew Halloween Ressurection was a bit better..

Hellraiser I & II---

You get the idea... I'm not into the psychological stuff or vampires... Don't do anything for me.

The Descent: Creepy and scary
Dog Soldiers: Great werewolf movie
The Exorcist: I saw it way too young
The Omen: I & III, II was awful

I tend to like horror films that use common tropes but turn them on their ear.

The Descent.
The Others.
The Blair Witch Project. (Shoot me.)

Scariest movie I've ever seen?

Rear Window.

Blair Witch is a pretty decent movie considering it was shot entirely by film students.. Blair Witch: Book of Shadows was decent...

Rear Window--definitely a Hitchcock classic..

Let's not forget Psycho--Anthony Perkins couldn't have done it better.

As some of you may know, this could take a while.
In no particular order:

The Descent
Dog Soldiers
Shaun of the Dead
Severance
Night/Dawn/Day/Land of the dead (The originals)
Evil Dead 1 & 2
28 Days Later
Jaws
Aliens 1-3
The Fog (Carpenter Original)
The Thing
American Werewolf in london (Jenny Agutter=Mmm)

I think that'll do for now.
