The Exorcist. It was the first movie to use graphic, horrific makeup effects and language derived from Hell itself. Many people at that time found themselves having nightmares about it for months afterwards. It had you hanging on the edge of the theater seat trying not to run out. The movie gave you the feeling that the director of this movie had no second thoughts about displaying images that had never been seen before. It was the first of its kind.

what exactly is so great about The Exorcist? I've never seen it myself.

and Satan, the movie was 28 Days Later, then the sequel was 28 Weeks Later. it just came out, in fact.

Nosferatu.

Ohh yes indeed.

of that era, I think my favorite was definitely Lon Chaney Sr.'s Phantom Of The Opera.

as for best horror ever though.. I agree with Red.

Whats so scary about the Exorcist? If you have never seen it I suggest you rent it. The makeup effects on Linda Blair when she becomes fulley possesed by the Devil is what stands out in my mind. That face looks like what a real Demon from Hell would look like. When she begins to float above her bed, arms out like she is being crucified, and her eyes roll back in her head sent a chill up my spine. The movie starts out a little slow but once you see the little girl is becoming posessed it becomes real creepy fast. Watch it in the dark and find out for yourself.

Back in 1973, This movie more then pushed the envelope. It did things that nobody had ever done, and using a young girl as the victim of demon possession, was also very controversial. The make up, sound effects, special effects, were top notch and still effective today. It's a must see for any serious horror fan.

Horrorman
01-25-2008, 04:48 PM
Finally it sounds like someone besides me seen it when it first came out. If this isn't a horror movie I do not know what is. The original Exorcist was the best. The other sequels paled in comparison to the original. I have not seen a movie since then that actually scared me and I have seen a lot. The Freddy Krueger, Jason, and Michael Myers movies were entertaining but not scary in my humble opinion. I have seen all the Saw movies and they were just a blood spattered gore fest like all the others. I like all of these movies but I just was not scared by any of them.

joker jr.
01-25-2008, 07:12 PM
like I said, though, Saw 1 had no gore or death in it until the very end, then it just exploded with quite realistic violence and bloodshed. in fact.. I'm suprised Saw 1 was even considered a horror movie, to me it seemed more like a crime drama.

Hard to disagree with The Exorcist as best horror movie.

Honourable mentions: Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Haute Tension, The Innocents

Guilty pleasure: The Devils Rejects (Captain Spaulding is ace!)

I gotta say the Exorcist. It may have a slow storyline, with some boring parts about some priests, but you don't expect it to scare you that much.
It was about a week after watching this that I realised she was the star of everyone's "favourite" maze game, the scary maze.

I still have never watched The Exorsist.

All I remember is the Priest walking around in an empty room with flies on his face.

Not really a fan of the excorcist. That part of the 70's was loaded with possesion and satanic movies [Sentinel,Rosemarys baby,etc.] and excorcist was,IMO,no better than many of the era.
To me the greatest horror flick of all time comes down to two titles.The Val Lewton produced The Body Snatcher,and Jaws. Body snatcher is eerie and heavy on the atmosphere and features Boris Karlof in what might be his finest{and creepiest}role.
As for Jaws?Well,I have NEVER gone back in the ocean.THAT is horror.

I'm a big fan of the older movies like Nosferatu. I don't know if I have a favorite but it seems that the movies from that era have haunted me far more than any modern day horror flicks. For instance, Hitchcock's The Birds was not frightening when I watched it but the next day as I stood on the back porch waiting for the school bus the biggest flock of starlings I had ever seen shadowed the sky. It was really creepy. Another one I can think of is Carnival of Souls (1962), dead but not...the visuals were very eerie and I was left with a feeling of unsettledness that lasted all evening and still creeps up on me when I think about it. While the newer movies may scare and shock me, its the older ones that leave me truly frightened.

Now I'm new to the forum so I'm stepping over the line here just let me know. Seeing that its a horror forum I would think a discussion like this wouldn't be out of bounds.

Supposedly the Sarlacc from "Return of the Jedi" is supposed to symbolize Vagina dentata.

Yeah, when I was looking for info about the movie Teeth, I stumbled on some info about that anti-rape condom for women. Seems pretty painful, and other thing; I don't think it works because it looks pretty ilogic? I mean, it looks more like a normal condom for men. O_o

I like The Exorcist too. I think my favorite is still House on Haunted Hill (the first one, with Vincent Price).
As for one that actually really scared me, I would probably have to say Arachnophobia -- since I actually have that phobia, a big poisonous spider chasing people (made all the more realistic since for half of the movie, they used real spiders) is a bigger deal to me than you'd think. ;)

Eyes Without A Face is another one that I thought was pretty great. It wasn't actually done as a horror film, but as an art film, but the theater where it was originally being shown marketed it as a horror film because of the content. I call it a really artistic horror movie. Stunning visuals, really great soundtrack.

Sorry I can't just pick one. I'm sort of a multi-favorite kind of person. :)

hmm, probably Day of The Dead (1985) cuz it was just done so well and the gore effects were amazing. I also loved the acting, some of the best acting I've ever seen in a horror film. They really took the film seriously and did a good job actingwise, which is why I love Romero films, Though Land was a bit lacking plotwise.

Mine too! It's so scary. I almost had a heartattack when one spider that looked like that one from the movie(the one brought to Cali. with the dead photographer) crawled on me at night. =[

Oh a difficult one. I loved Omen when I saw it and still find it chilling. Also the Amytiville Horror,the original. Then there's Poltergeist,that really creeped me first time I saw it. See I like scary films rather than slasher types. Was never a fan of Nightmare on Elm street,that kind of thing. Also there's the Thing. Yes its SF but scary as hell! I also liked Blair Witch and The Ring,the Grudge etc,creepy stuff about the unknown rather than blood and guts stuff.

But let's leave that aside since it's too complicated for you to understand. And if you don't like what I am saying I would shut up if I were you, before I got my ass kicked out of here, and by all means I can make that happen, capiche? And yeah, I am a pain in the ass and if that doesn't appeal to you, just don't bother replying to me, it just means that you're the one seeking for a pain in the ass.

Problem solved, I'll keep my opinions to me, so will slasherfreak and Ryan. Cussing, being rude, etc, doesn't help much. So we'll try to cooperate with ourselves and keep it cool here for the sake of other users. As for SlasherFreak, we'll just not EVER reply to each other's messages again and avoid talking to each other, which seems a very good idea since you're not the nicest person I've talked to in my life. And I am just a pain in your little ass so why even bother talking to me huh?

Honestly, what's the difference between arguing over the internet and arguing in front of each other?
Over the internet you don't have to worry about being sued for accidentally beating the hell out of the other guy. Just because it's text-based communication, doesn't mean people can't be effected by it. All you people act as if just because you're not in each others faces then it means nothing, that's not at all the case.

Anyhow.. Right now I can barely breathe from laughing at the "Teeth" thing and especially Malachai's correcting SF. Lmao.

hmm, probably Day of The Dead (1985) cuz it was just done so well and the gore effects were amazing. I also loved the acting, some of the best acting I've ever seen in a horror film. They really took the film seriously and did a good job actingwise, which is why I love Romero films, Though Land was a bit lacking plotwise.

I think Day of the Dead is greatly underrated, I like that one a lot. Land of the Dead I didn't much care for. Anyone see the Day remake? I thought it sucked. Rent it, don't buy it.

Honestly, what's the difference between arguing over the internet and arguing in front of each other?
Over the internet you don't have to worry about being sued for accidentally beating the hell out of the other guy. Just because it's text-based communication, doesn't mean people can't be effected by it. All you people act as if just because you're not in each others faces then it means nothing, that's not at all the case.

Anyhow.. Right now I can barely breathe from laughing at the "Teeth" thing and especially Malachai's correcting SF. Lmao.

I wouldn't even call this arguing. This is just immature bickering, idle threats and name calling. On most of the forums I frequent this thread would have been locked and members would have been banned. Then again this isn't like most forums I frequent in many regards.

Yay, Maximoto. :)

I have wanted to see Teeth for a while--I got told about it by a friend online who made the comment, "It would be really great if teeth like that were an option."
She's hilarious. I agreed, though. Now boys, don't flinch--I may be anti-social and eschew dating, but in this case I just meant in the possible event of a psycho rapist, you need every weapon you can get. ;)

I also enjoyed John Carpenter's The Thing, although the first time I watched it, I missed (for some reason) the first 3-4 minutes. It turns out those are really important to the plot ;) and so then when the alien-dog's head split open, I thought it was one of the normal dogs, and had the reaction, "NOOO!! They killed the DOGGIE!!!"
Eventually I got around to watching the movie and rooting for the people. Eventually. For a while I wouldn't watch it because of all the dogs dying. LOL. I had my priorities a little skewed--I still dislike movies where pets die.
Apparently, The Thing was part of Carpenter's Apocalypse Trilogy. I haven't seen the other two installments yet.
Speaking of John Carpenter, his The Fog movie was pretty awesome.

Am I the only one, or are the remakes of really good old horror movies usually pretty lame?

At least the bickering is over. Or rather, I won't see it anymore, because of my ignore list. Handy little invention. A peaceful way of excluding things from your line of view. I highly recommend it.

Ghost movies are a vice of mine. Actually all horror movies, but, well... ;)
I actually saw "Blacula" and "Scream, Blacula, Scream"on TCM the other night. I was impressed--but mostly with the gigantic hairstyles. Although, the guy who played Blacula was definitely cool. Contrasted with his fellow fangers who used jive slang constantly, he was pretty collected, which made the movie kinda neat. A little campy, but neat.
Don't tell me I'm the only person on the planet who's seen those! ;)

Agreed the original day is fantastic and has a much more in depth plot than the previous 2 it is paced better and keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. It's my fav. of the original trilogy. I love the new one too, while not necessarilly an A film it is very entertaining and a fun watch.

Huh??? What would I trigger, JJ? OH the teeth. Doubtful. When Nature provides a defense system, it usually also provides a naturally-occurring failsafe. :)

Blacula is an interesting character--very calm, collected, very un-70's. I have to say it for the actor who played him, he did very well with the "I'm ancient and poised here, people" thing. I think that the name makes it a bit campy. Then there's the script...well, it's interesting. I don't know whether it's a spoof film or not! But it's interesting to watch. It has it's funny moments, whether intentional or not.

I take it your a Stephen King fan. I'm surprised you didn't mention "Carrie".

Helphyre
05-13-2008, 11:52 PM
I like Stephen King, too. Although I prefer Rose Red. Personally, I feel that quite a few, if not all, of the movie adaptations of his books didn't quite give them justice. Maybe that's just me. :)
Carrie was pretty awesome, though. Except for the pink bathwater, which I think was a flub in accuracy (blood in water is more of a reddish brown), but visually, it worked in a strange way.

07-22-2008, 10:43 PM
texas chainsaw was based loosley on ed gein who really only killed 2 women and his brother (i think) in plainfeild wisconsin (not texas) the fact was tobe hooper based texas chainsaw on tid bits hed heard about when he was younger and didnt even know the name ed gein when he made texas chainsaw. the interesting thing is nightmare on elm street had more truth to it than texas chainsaw massacre. wes craven wrote it based on old newspaper articles he collected about sleep disorders in one case a teenage boy was claiming he couldnt sleep convinced his nightmares were going to kill him. he was forced to take sleeping pills that his mother would watch him take herself every night. a few days later his mother found him dead in his bed. his pillowcase filled with the sleeping pills and his closet had a can of coffee grounds with a spoon in it. just like in the first nightmare movie. the name fred krueger comes from wes cravens childhood bully and the look of freddy kruger comes from a traumatic childhood experience involving a hobo in a fedora and sweater. nightmare on elm street probably isnt the best movie ever but probably one of the most inspired

Here we go again, more hating on "The Exorcist", especially by young people, probably backlash from it so often being referred to the the scariest movie ever. Anyway, most people, I know, even those who hate the movie, like the originally deleted scene of Regan's backward "spiderwalk" down the stairs. Are you going to seriously tell me that's not a scary part?

The older folks like us found it scary because it was the first movie of that time to show extremely horrific makeup effects and foul language.
The young folks have become immuned to this movie because they have grown up with hundreds of movies that show this stuff again and again.
It was probably much scarier to me because when I first saw it back in the 70s I was stoned on pot. That was a real good idea!"
I remember looking in the rear view mirror of my car on the way home thinking Linda Blair would be popping up with that demon face!"
Her rolled up eyes and demonic smile stayed clear in my mind for a long time afterwards. Yes kids, your mom and dad probably were stoned in the 70s!" Surprise Surprise!

The Exorcist. It was the first movie to use graphic, horrific makeup effects and language derived from Hell itself. Many people at that time found themselves having nightmares about it for months afterwards. It had you hanging on the edge of the theater seat trying not to run out. The movie gave you the feeling that the director of this movie had no second thoughts about displaying images that had never been seen before. It was the first of its kind.

Good film, 9 people actually died during the making of it...hmm :eek:

If it counts as a horror film, my favourite is Quatermass and the Pit (AKA; 5 Million Years to Earth).

Niall MacGinnis' performance as Karswell the evil occultist is simply brilliant.

I'm torn between three films, two of which belong to Alfred Hitchcock:

Carnival of Souls - This film is an underrated cult-classic, and is recommended viewing for fans of dreamlike horror and the macabre

The Birds - The slow, comedic way this film begins is a testament to the intelligence, and mastery of its direction and writing

Rear Window - One of the most skillfully shot and executed films of suspense and terror I've ever seen, with some of the most exquisite pieces of writing, as well as a fantastic performance by Jimmy Stewart.

Amongst these three, I cannot choose.

I love chainsaw massacre, elm street, last house on the left, but my faves are evil dead 2 and return of the living dead! But I would probably argue that the exorcist is the greatest horror movie of all time.

Apparently a bunch of people were institutionalised after watching this movie. Something like 2o% of people who saw this fainted.

Did you know that the exorcist was based on a real case? You can watch a documentary on this on my site (sorry for the plug): http://www.grindhousehorrormovies.com/forum/youtube3/page1.html

But seriously, there are so many great horror films that it's impossible to choose one.

I guess..Imprint, The Last Supper, Cello, The Shining, Thirst, Rampo Noir, Evil Dead, Psycho, Devil's Rejects, Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, A tale of Two sisters (American version: The Uninvited)

At the moment I'm way too tired to really decide upon one.
