Martyrs (Director: Pascal Laugier)
Down right nasty
I'd say the premise to Hostel is scary because it's entirely possibly that it happens.
I'll go w/ The Purge- the end where the neighbors kill the attacks & say "you're ours,not theirs".
The first Halloween was pretty good. It became a bad joke eventually, but the first one was good.
John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness was pretty good too. A small role by Alice Cooper.
"The Devil's Rejects"..That's the Rob Zombie one I was thinking of.
"Hellraiser"- Now that was a good horror movie! Although I didn't think the sequel was all that good.
Something I've wanted to see for years now is for someone to make a good, true-to-the-original-story version of "The Dunwich Horror".
There was one back in the 60's with Sandra Dee that was awful, and another one done I think in the 90's that was a bit better, but not great. H.P. Lovecraft created one of the best horror stories ever written with that one IMHO, and with the technology available nowadays someone could make an absolute killer movie out of it!
As stories, all the H.P. Lovecraft stuff was top notch. The people who get movie options on them always drop the ball.
The original Amityville Horror was pretty scary as a kid.
Agreed. I just don't get that either, since nowadays "We have the technology"
Not sure what I'd call "scary". Some call "gross" scary, so I'm not really sure.
But I loved "The Shining".
Can't believe no one has mentioned the shining yet
I didn't find The Shining scary...but very compelling and intense. Nicholson played that role perfectly.
What the hell did the woman whisper at the end of the film? That drives me nuts.
I like to watch a good scary movie but none ever scare me... most are a disappointment. I did however enjoy some of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies (I'd recommend the original and the remake) and the first couple of Wrong Turn movies for some reason.. they didn't scare me but I found them interesting. I also liked the one with Paris Hilton that had the wax museum.
I like a good suspense the best though.. one I can never figure out until they want me to figure it out. Saw Training Day (Densel Washington) last week and that was a good one.. he was a bit scary in that
If you want to watch a funny satire then watch Tucker and Dale vs. Evil
No kiddin'! Although they didn't follow a lot of the story line from the book, especially at the end, Nicholson turned that character into an icon! How many times have we heard someone trying to do a Jack Nicholson imitation say the line "Heeere's Johnny!"?
There was a very good remake done back in the 90's I think, don't remember who played in it. But it was pretty true to the book..Although it still wasn't quite the same without 'ol Jack!
I believe Kubrick wanted to use the story as a vehicle to tell his own story. Not literally his life story (or did he?), but Stephen King did not like it at all.
There's this whole thing about the color of the car in the book/movie, which someone theorized it was Kubrick's way of saying "Fukk King's story, this one is mine."
I can understand him being pissed off though... Kubrick called his writting "weak".
Where's the "irony" emoticon?
Good one! Also another that plays on the genre for fans to enjoy. Like "Dead Alive" but I would put Tucker ahead in writing and production quality. Plus it's always a good thing when I see the crew from Firefly getting work.
The guy in Nicholson's role was one of the leads from the TV series "Wings" (Steve Webber). I found that remake pretty slow-paced (it was a 3 part miniseries on TV IIRC). Although more respectful of the novel, I found Kubrick's a better movie. To this day I find Shelley Duvall's part in Kubrick's movie painful to watch; far too wooden.
another fun one that is clever (at least I really enjoyed it)...Wes Craven , Matt Damon produced, Greenlight Project winner...the intro is awesome...Feast-
Assuming you mean the original (because I seem to remember a remake) - it could be scary if you put some thought into it.
I'm thinking along the lines of 'just beneath the thin veneer of the most civilised bucolic communities lies an ancient barbaric.... etc.'
But veneers are always thin! Otherwise they wouldn't be veneer.
Actually, Death of a Salesman was scary to me.
I felt like I needed a shower afterwards.
