    Talking Favorite Scary Movies

    So what movies scare the crap out of the members of AO?

    I am a big fan of the classics:

    Friday the 13th
    Nightmare on Elm St.
    The Omen

    Just to name a few...

    In terms of really being scary or suspenseful, the first two that come to mind would be John Carpenter's the thing, and Stanley Kubrick's the shining. But I'm a big fan of old time Universal studios black-and-white horror films like the Wolf Man, the mummy, etc.. Films from that genre. However one of the few remakes that I think is good is the remake of the mummy. One of the reasons I think it's good is because it in no way attempted to copy the original. It took a completely different approach, and it worked. Also has excellent effects

    The Shining is an excellent movie... [and boogymantroy is right... so is the Shinning ] I haven't seen many of the old scary movies... I watched the remake of Dracula [half of it anyway] I couldn't get past Keanu Reeves though... I kept waiting for a phone booth to fall from the sky or something...

    There's nothing quite like old horror movies in black and white. The Wolfman with Lon Chaney Jr. is a particular favorite. Not the werewolf of London, however. A werewolf is not supposed to put on a hat and a scarf before he goes out to kill, nor is he supposed to be leveled by a clout on the jaw from a human.

    --------------------------------------------

    I'll point out a few things:

    First, a couple movies are on there multiple times. No I wasn't drunk... Well I could have been,l but that isn't the reason, the reason is because I own multiple copies or versions of some movies.

    I own 10 copies of Night of the Living Dead. Two of the 1990 Re-Make, one on VHS one on DVD, and the rest are the original, and the reason I have so many of the original is because the first copy I bought was VHS and I started wearing down the tape on it, so I bought it on DVD, then I found one that was 5 minutes longer than the one I had, so I bought that too and it just went on and on and on, I kept finding releases with more features and commentaries and extra scenes so whenever I find a version Id on't have I buy it.

    I have 4 copies of Dawn of the Dead. One is the unrated uncut director's cut version, one is the VHS copy of the same thing, one is the special edition that has about 15 minutes extra footage they cut out and another is the remake.

    --------------

    Second, I haven't updated this list in almost a year, and have since gotten about 40 new movies to add.

    ----------------

    Also since Grindhouse came out, it's MUCH easier to find the original oldschool Grindhouse releasing movies now, so I buy those whenever I see them.

    So the actual number of Horror / Gore / Splatter movies I have is almost 300 now.

    In the Mouth of Madness. Still creeps me out to this day. Cthulu Mythos stuff is just eerie.
