Horror's such a malleable term and there are things that push at the boundaries. I've tended to like the more creepy or psychological or hybrid stuff than outright axe-to-the-skull types.

 

Jason's been kind of the exception for me, although I do like Halloween 1 & 4 as well. For the F13th series, it's probably between Part IV and Part VI. Haven't seen any of the series for several years now though, need a refresher.

 

Outside of those, well, I'll just throw names here so forgive the randomness. Evil Dead II, Ringu, Twins of Evil, Plague of the Zombies, The Fog ('81), In The Mouth of Madness, Event Horizon, Night of the Demon ('57) and both the '51 and '82 versions of The Thing (from Another World).

Horror's such a malleable term and there are things that push at the boundaries.

absolutely. for example... there is this little pretty unknown movie called THE LIVING AND THE DEAD which is truly an absolut horror though it has no monsters, killers, ghosts, psychopaths or whatsoever. It is about a family of an elderly couple and their mentally handicapped adult son. The wife is very ill and has to be taken care of all day. one weekend the husband HAS to make a trip into the city and hires a nurse for the weekend. the son then gets the idea to proof to his father that he is not useless and capable of doing things. so he manages to look out the nurse and tries to take care of his mother.....

as someone who had a family member in need of constant care myself, this movie was pretty much the most unpleasant and hard to watch movie i have ever seen and an absolute nightmare.

by the way... i mentioned that Tom Savinis Night of the Living Dead remake was my zombie movie, to that extent, that i recreated the end credits with screenshots from my THE LAST OF US playthrough, using the music and art style of the films credits. it was also my first test with a new editing software and my first venture in more than just cutting out the part of a video i wanted to use

So a lot of people dig some comedy in their horror? I guess the combination does go back a long way, though I'm not sure how often the comedy was intentional, but I see a lot of Evil Dead, Friday the 13th Part VI (which I think was the very last one I saw all the way through) Hatchet and Brain Dead. Part VI seemed a little out of place, as Kane Hodder mentioned trying to stay serious even in Jason X, Jason's always been a humorless character so I think it's a more difficult fit than it is in other series like Evil Dead, where Bruce Campbell makes it feel completely natural. Thanks for the lists, everyone!

I just watched hatchet for the first time. Marcus has some of the funniest lines i'm glad him being the black guy wasn't the first one to be killed.

Jaws, Halloween 3 (just kidding) 1+2, f13 pt.1,2,6,7...remake I liked the updated feel. This is really hard I guess it depends on my mood...sometimes Hellraiser series or Phantasm movies....Nightmare on Elm street 3 is my favorite of that series and I think it's because the crazy scenes of tongue beds, marionettes, wizards and punk chicks... just depends but def. First 7 are faves I could watch over and over.

Choosing a favourite horror film... now THAT'S a hard commitment... It's a toss up between The Evil Dead and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Halloween 6 Curse of Michael Myers has always been my favorite. The last Halloween with the late great Donald Pleasence. If you want me to get specific as to which version I prefer I'd say the TV or Director's cut. TV version cause it was like a hybrid cut of both the theatrical and producers cuts. The director's just had that dark and gritty grunge like score to the film. Growing up in the 1990's grunge was king.

John Carpenter's Halloween would have to be my all time favorite horror movie. I always kind of viewed Jason as the "cool" slasher, and Michael was the one that really scared me. F13 Part 6 would probably be my all time favorite from the series, but Part 2, then 3 scared me the most as a child!

In terms of quality, either The Shining or Silence of the Lambs, though the latter is only horror in certain scenes

In terms of what horror film I like watching the most... Friday the 13th Part VI. To me, Jason Lives is the epitome of Friday the 13th as a franchise. It's campy, it's fun, it's spooky, it's got a nice gothic feel to it, has great deaths and an over all sense of fun to it. It's the perfect slasher movie. Just a shame the other zombie Jason movies couldn't deliver on Jason Lives' promise.


"There's a legend around here. A killer buried, but not dead. A curse on Crystal Lake, a death curse. Jason Voorhees' curse. They say he died as a boy, but he keeps coming back. Few have seen him and lived. Some have even tried to stop him... No one can. People forget he's down there, waiting..."
