I think there is a thread for this already, but I could not find it.

 

A good friend and I watched *Tooth Fairy* last evening.

 

He got it for his kids to watch in 2010.  It was really good, surprisingly enough.  A hockey themed tooth fairy tale.  Two grown men with tears in their eyes at the happy ending.

Ok with Halloween approaching, what is a movie or series of movies that actually scared you? I'm talking to the level of having difficultly sleeping at night. The movie that did me in was "IT." The clown pulled a number on me. I was a young kid. Watched it w/out my parents knowing. Had a hard time sleeping and was afraid to go in the basement and attic. So what scared you guys? There has to be at least one movie that did you in.

Can we just make a movies/tv thread like we have the music thread and other general threads? No reason to make a new one every time the weather changes.

Halloween is the best scary movie for me. John Carpenter's version. Although I did enjoy the Rob Zombie version.

Scary movies don't do much for me. But I will note that House of 1000 Corpses might be one of the most unsettling movies I've ever watched. It's not a good movie at all. But it's very sadistic.

Indeed. The bunny scene is haunting. Rob Zombie sucks.

Nightbreed was a nearly comedic horror flick I saw a ton growing up because my family watched it a lot for some reason.

I like a good horror film with an original story line but there aren't many now. I liked Sinister (the sequel is trash).

I will only watch slasher horror. I need a good old fashioned killer in my movies. I absolutely hate the supernatural ones. I like the ones where the girl falls while running through the woods, unarmed and alone.

I'm just not big on the whole concept of being scared by a movie. Is that what horror movies are supposed to do?

Somewhat related, but many moons ago dfdtrumpet and I got dragged into seeing Lady in the Water by the girls who thought it was a scary movie. It totally wasn't. We laughed our assess off the whole time and the girls were legit disappointed that it wasn't scary :lol:

Never was a big fan of horror flicks.

Biggest scares for me were The Shining and the original Alien. Saw Alien at the movies when I was 10ish. I wanted out of that theater in the worst way.

Not big into the slasher flicks with the same old tired recipe of the teenagers at the lake party. Really like some of the asian movies cause they seem to have a whole different vibe on how to scare ya. More cerebral. Ringu comes to mind.

Psychological horror films are my favorite.

They're not quite "scary movies," but Jacob's Ladder and The Invitation are two phenominal psychological films.

Been meaning to watch the Babadook for weeks.

The Ring scared the bejesus out of me when I was younger. I really wanna watch the original Japanese version.

The only horror movie worth a damn is the original Omen.

 

Man you better bring an extra pair of underoos.

 

A pretty close second, although the movie did not do the book justice, IMO, is "It".  Man King has a way of playing on all your childhood worst nightmares.

If everyone agrees I will change this one to capture all of it.

Was just going to post Jacob's Ladder. It's very psychological and gets that great "uneasy" feeling across that it's meant to.

I like horror movies and want them to do their job and be scary, but it's so hard to find nowadays. Honestly, last time I was creeped out was the first paranormal activity. Sure the franchise (and found footage genre) has largely gone to the dogs, but it had a uniqueness and creepy factor.

Did anyone see Lights Out? Was based on a YouTube short film. Both are actually really good. I recommend youtubing the short.

Lights Out was an effective movie. I still think about it when I'm in the dark.

The script isn't great and the filmmaking was in need of a lot more creativity, but it's pretty good.


The Gallows is a pretty excellent found footage movie. It got abysmal reviews. Has, like, a 10 on rotten tomatoes. But I LOVE IT.

Check out the Hitcher, Eden Lake, Devil's Rejects, Funny Games, I spit on your grave (remake from 2010), P2, Kalifornia, and Strangeland. All good slasher/torture type flicks without any supernatural nonsense.

Worst as in poorly done or in poor taste? Bad in general, etc?

 

My girlfriend googled most f'd up movies of all time and I think we watched the worst one (even though it was only ranked #4 or #6 or something on the list. It's called a Serbian film and I don't recommend it unless you really just get your rocks off with messed up stuff. Complete snuff film but we watched it until the end. The movie itself was actually pretty well done, it's the plot/content that will make you want to scrub your own brain with bleach after you watch it.

I will say that Devil's Rejects was good.

 

Not a huge horror fan either... if I watch it I want it to be sci-fi-ish. For me, John Carpenter's The Thing and the original Alien are favorites. The special effects and making of both films is brilliant stuff. And The Mist really creeped me out, that damn ending. 

 

I prefer to watch friends or playthroughs of horror games. Playing Deadspace back in college with the lights off for hours and then watching the horrible movie Event Horizon while drinking made for some interesting dreams.

I saw Ouija: Origin of Evil last night. It's the prequel to Ouija, which came out in 2014 (currently sporting a 7% on rotten tomatoes).

It was pretty good. I never got really into it or got scared, but I respect the movie a lot.

The director is REALLY into the depth of shots. It felt like an homage to movies that were adapted from the stage. The filmmaking was all about two subjects in the frame with a very narrow focus. It created a really neat feeling, even though it didn't always feel justified in the story.

There are some funny bits, and some silly bits (intentional and otherwise), but most importantly this movie wasn't ashamed of itself at all.

I've come to despise the trailer, which I'd probably seen at least 6 times before last night. Oh my god does that trailer show wayyyyyy to much.

If you want a fun spooky halloween movie, I say go for it.

Terrible acting, plot line, everything....


I saw Ouija last night, it was OK, but felt it could have been done better, rotten tomatoes gave it 80% Id say 50%

Beginning all the way to the credits. Definitely the most disturbing film I've seen. It's like the writers were constantly trying to top eachother with how low they could set the bar.

It's a little campy but worth a watch. I don't think I was impressed enough to watch the sequel though, mostly because sequels tend to drop about 2 points on the scale of 10 to me and I'd probably only give the first one a 6 or 7 at best.

Admiral, a Dutch historical drama about Admiral De Ruyter, a naval hero. Frankly, I don't know much about his era on history or speak Dutch (of which about 80% of the movie spoken in), but Netflix kept telling me to watch it and it's up around 5 stars so I gave it a shot. It's not bad at all, I'd watch it again. Lots of ships and cannons, a bunch of political treachery stuff. Plus, stars Dutch Ron Jeremy in the lead role.

Denial. Great movie. In my top 2 for the year (The Lobster is the other one).

It's as if the filmmakers knew exactly how this election year would be.

The thread for this is on page 3 and is the Summer Movie Thread or somesuch. Maybe a quick merge to have a Movie thread instead of seasonal?
