Recommend me a horror movie (in Off-topic)
so I want to throw a movie night and I need a few good horrors/thrillers. and not just any old horror with just hack and slash, blood and gore. No, a real horror that has you spoked and after seeing it can't sleep at night.
Have any good suggestions?
Dawn of the dead, probably seen it but it's one of my favs.
Now I want to see the movie again, I meant the remake by the way. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. I've seen it like 10 times and it never gets old.

House of 1000 Corpses
Any of the Tales From The Crypt or Creepshows.
It's hard to fit what you are looking for since that is basicly what all horror movies are plus nothing but crap has been coming out lately.
Oh heck peruse this link http://www.best-horror-movies.com/horror-movie-on-dvd.html
if you cant find something there you cant find what you are looking for :P

Audition, a Korean or Japanese one. The next to last scene will keep you up for days.
Frailty, not a horror movie but a great thriller with a kick butt ending.
Quarantine, filmed like the Blair Witch Project but quite scary. Remake of Rec.
Saw, the first one. Not any sequel but the first has a great ending.
The Descent, an all female horror movie. Great plot, women stuck in caves fighting things.
The Ruins, quite disturbing.
Wolf Creek, you will never hear the term "head on a stick" the same again.
Pan's Labyrinth, an incredible display of filmography with an incredible story.
28 Days Later and its sequel 28 Weeks Later. Zombie films to the max.
The Hills Have Eyes, a disturbing view of what lies in the atomic bomb zones of the American desert. 2006 version.
1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects. Rob Zombie produced. Very very violent but with a degenerate plot.

man when I was younger the original 'Jaws' scared the daylights out of me....
April 16 2009 9:34 PM EDT
Manos Hands of Fate.
I couldn't sleep at night after I saw this. Because I was far too rested sleeping through it!
Seconded, thirded, and fourthed(!?)
Event Horizon. It creeped me out so bad.

I have to give credit to Ranger for the movie Audition, an amazing movie.
But quite frankly anyone here still get frighten after watching an horror movie?
I miss this feeling.
April 16 2009 11:55 PM EDT
Well I like 28 days later...cuz zombies are wicked..but zombies that can run fast are better....28 weeks later is ok but not as good..Also The Shining is sick in more ways then 1...."Here's Johny!!!"

The original Halloween movies are my favorite. Unlike modern horror movies, they still creep me out.

House of Wax
Dawn of the Dead
Shawn of the Dead
Land of the Dead
The Strangers (will really keep you awake)
might know more, need to think
Seen most of movies of the series "of the dead" including Shawn :)
Those were good movies. I'll keep an eye out for audition and event horizon.
Nice suggestions guys :) Thanks.
Go with some classic Hitchcock!

Near Dark, a vampire movie from the late 80s, but as different to the Lost Boys as you can get.
If you've never seen it do so now.
April 17 2009 5:07 AM EDT
28 days and weeks later both are very good movies, especially when you watch them after another. :)
Pan's Labyrinth (Not really a horror movie...)
The Blair Witch Project
Especially BWP. There's practically no violence/blood/gore in the entire movie, no sex either. And it's just... unnerving.
April 17 2009 11:24 AM EDT
Just thought of another movie its called Henry. Messed up movie is all i can say :)
Shawn of the Dead is a comedy, and imo wasn't that good. I also didn't think 28 weeks later was a good movie, neither did my brother.
April 17 2009 12:26 PM EDT
Eversoris, take it back. Shawn of the Dead is a comedy, but it's a brilliant comedy!
Sorry, but I can't. I don't find british comedy funny. I only watched it once when it came out, I may give it another shot one day.
April 17 2009 12:44 PM EDT
I thought Shawn was overrated, both as a horror movie and a comedy.
April 17 2009 12:46 PM EDT
Shawn was nice, if you've seen Hot Fuzz also ;)
April 17 2009 12:57 PM EDT
I know it's a little late since you posted this last night lol but I'll throw another in there anyway. High Tension. May not keep you up at night after watching it, but it's great =)

Let The Right One In
High school musical, just the trailers have terrified me.
April 17 2009 3:00 PM EDT
Let The Right One In
Is a great movie but it's more a sentimental drama with a pinch of horror on the side.
The hitcher is a great thriller imho.
April 17 2009 3:51 PM EDT
these scared me when my wife rented them, Sisterhood of the travelling pants, 27 dresses, maid of honor...
April 17 2009 3:51 PM EDT
Alone in the dark?
April 17 2009 3:53 PM EDT
heh, "Funny Games"
more just interesting to watch than really horror
April 17 2009 4:24 PM EDT
I am sure Saw series has been mentioned - but a good Brit horror/blood fest is Eden Lake
April 17 2009 4:31 PM EDT
I have just read the other ones - there are loads more - I have to say I love horrors. Try the original Japanese Ring series. Anything by Clive Barker is good. No-one mentioned Erasorhead - that to me is so good (and horrific).
I need a fix on what horror really means
Battle Royale is no horror movie, but it disturbed my sleep anyway.
April 17 2009 4:38 PM EDT
Eraserhead is from David Lynch if I remember right.
Or perhaps your referring to another movie.
April 17 2009 4:40 PM EDT
Just rtead properly Henks initial question.
The Haunting - no not the remake with that stupid welsh cow - the original.
I have to say Exorcist, or Omen - both made me feel weird. Forget Pan's Labia or whatever its called. The next one - the Orphanage - was real creepy. I think Del Toro was involved - but not totally.
April 17 2009 6:09 PM EDT
+ a few for the Exorcist. (the new material isn't necessary but there was a few scenes that are creepy!)
Mr. Frost (1990). I remember it creeped me out a bit, but haven't seen it in a while. Maybe not best for your movie night, but definitely a worth watching movie.

That's what I was trying to remember...
the Hellraiser movies... or at least the first one.
April 18 2009 12:25 AM EDT
if ya wanna see a freaky movie watch Vacancy (its about this couple who rent a hotel room and they find a bunch of murder/rape tapes done by the killer.) you gotta watch it... its freaky!
April 18 2009 1:01 AM EDT
Hellraiser and Event Horizon. Good choices, seconded, thirded, etc.
Nice suggestions all over :)
I'll try and rent a few of them and have a horror night thanks guys.
April 18 2009 9:44 AM EDT
Let me know which ones you picked. ;)
April 18 2009 11:56 AM EDT
I know this is prolly way late but here's my two cents :D
The Last Man on Earth - I would say one of the scariest Silver Screen Thinker Horror Flicks ever made.
Motel Hell- Bit of an Oldschool flick but the idea is scary, no small towns for me unless I have a loaded Machinegun ready and waiting and No Jerky!.....lol
Strangeland - While not much of a horror movie to me it still creeped me out....a lot!
Rose Red - One of the Best Thinker Horror Flicks that Stephen King made imho Besides "The Shinning" and "It" of course. The idea is very similar to the Amityville Horror(another great Horror Flick)
Ravenous - As of Late one of the Scariest Thinker Horror movies Ive seen. Imagine if everyone you knew could have intelligent convo with manners with you one minute and be chewing on your arm the next.....
The Skeleton Key - Another Thinker Flick, the idea has been done many times but I think the idea is still relevant for a horror Flick and very scary if it were true.....or is it more than just a movie >:D
