I've decided I want to watch some good horror movies. Any recommendations on some that will totally melt my face? Preferably netflix available as I dont want to travel the earth for some underground titles.

Favorite horror movie would probably be The Exorcist. Gore movies dont do it for me. Looking for one that really plants itself in your head. I've heard Paranormal Activity is pretty good and have that coming on Netflix. Also I just watched The Tale of Two Sisters last night, thought the plot twists were overused and only one scene in the movie made my skin crawl a little. Slept like a baby afterwards so it failed.

I prefer my horror to have humorous undertones. Things like the Return of the Living Dead, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Evil Dead series as well as Dead Alive and Zombie Strippers will make you chuckle while trying too hard to be frightening. The Leprechaun movies are okay for that as well.

As far as horror for horror's sake, well, I can't really remember the last time I was scared by a movie so my opinion on the matter is a bit off. Maybe Drag Me To **** or The Hills Have Eyes would be up that alley. Maybe Phantasm as well, though I don't remember the sequels too clearly.

Phantasm is an awesome series to watch; thanks for reminding me of them, need to add them to my Netflix list as well. To me Drag Me to **** was just a variation of Thinner; as for The Hills Have Eyes the remakes were meh, watch the original ones.

Rec (The original version of hollywood's Quarantine), Cloverfield, Drag Me to Hell, 28 Days Later, Session 9, Let the Right One In, & Event Horizon are some of the more modern movies that actually scared me.

Classics include The Thing, Alien, & Jacob's Ladder.

If you want to laugh, too: Dead Alive, Evil Dead, The Host, & the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (For one scene that has traumatized generations!).

I do not include modern Japanese horror movies in my lists because every time I watch one, I wished I hadn't seen whatever it is I saw.

I know the first time I saw The Ring, I had a real desire to keep the lights on that night. I've been told the Japanese original, Ringu, was far scarier, too. Event Horizon gave me nightmares, too. Can't think of any others off the top of my head...

I'm probably not the best person to give horror movie advice, though. I can get creeped out by a good book (or even some of the "creepypasta" I've run across from 4chan, such as the "Suicidemouse.avi" one...). I remember after reading H.P. Lovecraft's "The Rats in the Walls," I kept feeling like something was watching me & "heard" things in the walls at night...

That was actually the distributor's fault, but you would have thought that Romero would have learned from it.

I'll be 100% honest here: The Ring scared the **** out of me as a teenager, but while I heard Ringu was scarier, I was not scared once the entire time. It had no effect on me; I think because I had to read subtitles and the emotional impact was lessened because I kept having to look away from the action. Either way, it was very disappointing.

The Hills Have Eyes didn't scare me, but the rape scene in it made me VERY uncomfortable. Rape is just unpleasant. And the end of the movie was just downright goofy.

So maybe just getting the Ring would be wiser? I've never seen the movie period.

Also, I've seen The Hills Have Eyes and was bored by it.

I recently saw 30 Days of Night... not bad if you're looking for gore...most of the scary parts to me had nothing to do with vampires (in the start of the movie when the woman's truck gets hit by another vehicle).

The last, and possibly only movie that freaked me out was also, as mentioned by others, The Ring. Though to be honest it had nothing to do with the movie either. I started by watching the special features before the main movie, and watched the video of 'the girl' that they all see in the movie. Then I proceeded to watch the film. When it finished, I pressed open on the dvd player...and the disc didn't come out.

Try both versions of Ring. In my opinion japanese is better but they're both good.

Dark Water and grudge are worth watching too, but only japanese ones. While I am sucker for Jenny Connelly Dark Water US is simply boring while JP had me sitting on edge of the chair.

If you don't mind zombies go for 28 Days Later. It's quite good.

That indie was shot in a neighborhood called Rancho Penasquitos in San Diego, where I have quite a few family members. Unfortunately, the house (where the movie's director lived) has the same floor plan as one of my uncle's house. So while I was watching it, I couldn't stop comparing that house to my uncle's. "Hey, that's Len's room down the hall! Hey! That upstairs closet is where we used to play! Dude! Remember when we slid down the banister and tried to throw the ball into the chandelier at the same time?"

Did not make a scary movie for me.

That's a shame.

I've read some reviews of the movie now that i've seen it and apparently there was a lot of hype or something that the movie didnt live up to. I also saw a trailer and noticed it shows the final scene in the trailer. That would have ruined the movie for me.

Before somebody recommended it to me, i had never even heard of the movie lol.

Shutter (2004 Thai original NOT bladdy american remake!)

Saam gaang (Three Extremes)

"Scary True Stories: Ten Haunting Tales from the Japanese Underground" (Honto ni atta kowai hanashi), several movies under this title, varying lengths, some of 30 minutes others of 50 minutes, good stuff good stuff. I think it can be found on torrents under "dark tales from Japan" or similar headings.

Depends on your mindset when you watch it i'm sure. if you are just looking reasons to pick it apart, you wont enjoy it. If you are fully engrossed in the idea of getting scared **** you are more likely to get scared :P.

Event Horizon started off as a decent SciFi thriller then just turned into a cheap Hellraiser knock-off.

I wasn't. I don't tend to be a critic and usually expect to enjoy movies. I went into it wanting to like it, instead it was just a whole lot of "God, this is STUPID!"

You have your 80's staples of Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm St and Halloween. Generic slasher, there have been some passable remakes recently. Some more messed up stuff like Hellraiser which seems tame now but back in the day that **** was messed up. Speaking of remakes Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its remake.

Splatstick, Evil Dead, Dead Alive type movies. Dusk to Dawn

Zombie you have Romero, though honestly I am not a huge fan. Night of the living dead series, shaun of the dead which is more comedy, 28 days later which isn't technically zombie but is still most definitely the best zombie move in the last decade.

I have Hatchet sitting on my HD waiting to be watched, kind of a tribute to 80's slasher films.

Creature Features, An American Werewolf in London, Aliens, Predator (but not Alien vs Predator!), The Thing (so good), The Fly. I am at a loss for Vampire movies that don't include Bela Lugosi, Wesley Snipes or James Wood and a Baldwin Brother. Perhaps Innocent blood?


Old time stuff that I will watch anytime it is on like Creepshow, Lost Boys etc

Zombie with Halloween remake, House of a Thousand Corpses and Devils Rejects.


Wes Craven, John Carpenter, Romero, Argento, Raimi etc.


Japanese stuff, or the more tame english counterparts like the Ring or the Grudge.


There is a LOT of material to work through and the best part is that. this is just entry level there is so much out there. Beefing up your horror movie experience is worth investing the time.

Lost Boys is a vampire movie that meets the above requirements. There is also Bram Stoker's Dracula, but you have to deal with Keanu instead. Queen of the Dammed was decent, but it's more like a romance flick then an actual horror movie.

Lost Boys was included later on, Bram Stokers Dracula was a vampire movie but I dunno.

Queen of the Damned makes Twilight look reputable. A singing Lestat with vocals from Jonathan Davis. Even whats her faces body couldn't redeem that movie. Might as well have thrown Blackula up, at least for its exploitation goodness.

Paranormal Activity was pretty good, not the "I'm never closing my eyes again," that everyone made it out to be. Definitely made me jump a few times though.

If you liked Event Horizon, try Sphere. Not great, but worth watching.

While not what I would consider horror, the previously mentioned Cube movies are worth watching. Cube, Cube 2: Hypercube, and Cube Zero.

The Halloween remakes by Rob Zombie were decent. Zombie also did House of 1000 corpses and The Devils rejects, if you want to meet your gore quota for the next year.

The Friday the 13th remake was meh, but if you're desperate. Jason learned how to run, which pretty much killed it.

Ring was ok. I don't remember Ringu very well but I do remember not feeling like I wasted my time. Ring two is also out there, but I've never seen it.

Pandorum was ok, another one worth grabbing if you're completely out of ideas.

What lies beneath and They were pretty good.

A Haunting in Connecticut and Mirrors are worth sticking in the queue.

House(Lot of "House" movies out there so I'll link this one), The Eye, Shutter, The Cell, The Grudge, Gothika, Ghost Ship, Pulse, Silent Hill(I never was a fan of the game but I really liked this movie for some reason), House on Haunted Hill, and White Noise are all movies I have seen at some point in time. If they were on cable and I couldn't find anything else, I'd probably watch them again, most of them anyway.

Aside from Paranormal Activity, I can't remember the last movie that gave me the chills. The genre has been dead for too long (no pun intended).

Ahh, The Amityville Horror is a great horror movie, but I prefer the sequel (The Possession) more... and yes, it is set before the first movie.

I also like Suspiria. I still need to see the other two movies of the trilogy.

Also, someone mentioned Session 9 already... even though David Caruso is in it the movie is great. It also has a homage to Silent Hill (the game) in it... see if you can find it.

The Changeling is an older horror movie with George C. Scott in it... I remember being a kid and being terrified of the movie... but wanting to watch it over and over.

Want a Disney horror movie? Try The Watcher in the Woods. It isn't a cartoon... and I saw it when I was young (under 10) and from what I remember from it I am not sure if I would let my kid watch it til they were 12 or so... I still get shivers from remembering certain parts of the movie... not bloody... but "ghostly".

There was a movie that I saw when I was young that I can not remember the name of the movie or who was in it, but it had something to do with a kid in a well.. and I remember the song Frère Jacques being in the movie. (It's isn't the movie The Changeling)
Edit in: I 'think' the movie is called Child of Glass from a little research. What's funny is... it is ANOTHER Disney (non-cartoon) movie that scared the **** out of me.

I also thought of another good short movie that wasn't a full length movie... Red Room Riddle. It was one of those saturday morning movies that would come on ABC after the Super Hero hour. An ABC Weekend Special.
