    Actually I'm pretty confident in my three. At least The Thing and Dawn Of The Dead. Fright Night might be interchangeable if I'm looking for something more scary, but it's good to have an 80's light horror in the mix, like that or Lost Boys. But I'll stick with Fright Night.

    Now hurry up!!!!

    -Halloween
    -Dawn Of The Dead
    -The Exorcist (Scared the crap out of me when I was a kid, and haven't watched it since). That is why it is on here.

    But yeah lot of good ones. I have a few friends who host "First Friday Fright night in Phoenixville, PA. They show some good classic ones like Popcorn, Pumpkinhead, Poltergeist, The Warriors, Nightmare on Elm Street 3 & 4, Vampire Circus, From Dusk Til Dawn, My Bloody Valentine, Silent Night Deadly Night. This past month was Halloween III :D an d next month, Nov. 2 is Return Of The Living Dead (which I don't believe I've seen).

    Exorcist would be in my top 5.

    Thats awesome about the movie showings. Not enough places do that kind of stuff.

    BTW, I'm one of the few that thinks Halloween III is a good stand alone movie. I enjoy it.

    I find it interesting that you like a pair of sequels there, especially the second Human Centipede.

    Hey, he's made some good ones. "The Fog" probably would have been on my list if we were going 5 or possibly 10. John Carpenter's Vampires was awesome, at least when I saw it in theaters as a teenager and when it first came out on DVD, I haven't seen it since though. Ghosts of Mars not so much though, I was able to sit through it, but Ice Cube wore me out.

    how funny was walking through the horror section of the video store in the 80s and 90s and looking at the over-the-top artwork
  • Get_RightGet_Right Posts: 9,876
    A great synopsis of all horror movies to that date:
    Terror in the aisles

    A must see.

    I couldn't limit it to 3 when there are so many good ones. Lots of the ones mentioned here. I tend to like suspense over gore, although The Thing had plenty in both respects.

    Since no one's mentioned them though, I've always been a huge fan of the classic horror films from the 30s and 40s, especially those made by Universal and those great noirish ones by Val Lewton (Cat People, The Seventh Victim, I Walked with a Zombie).

    So I'd probably say Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, and Dracula.

    I can't knock the classics. Those are all great films.

    I'm not able to get into those really old horror movies. But I respect them. Kind of like Robert Johnson and Elvis, they're not really my cup of tea, but I appreciate the influence over the artists I like.

    And since I love Dracula the novel, it's one of my favorites, I'm not a fan of how the Bela Lugosi film strayed SO far. I love Bram Stoker's Dracula with Gary Oldman as Dracula though, as it sticks to the source material, and Gary is the shit.

  • 'Nosferatu' is worth checking out. The first film based on Stoker's novel and still one of the creepiest characters to appear in cinema. It's a silent film but the imagery is still iconic. One of my favourite films.

    'Shadow of the vampire' is a comedy based on the filming of Nosferatu but the vampire (William Defoe) is a real vampire and only the director (John Malkovich) knows this. He plays it off to the rest of the cast as being an extreme method actor.

    That sounds right up my alley, I'll have to check it out. I've never heard of it, and Willem Defoe is great.
