    Default Halloween! What are some movies you like to watch during this time?



    As a fan of horror flicks, I'd love to hear some recommendations for good movies to give me some spine-tingling thrills!

    (or even, movies that somehow still fit within Halloween that may not be scary in nature)

    Go.........what are some movies you like to watch during this time?

    [sorry if this is culturally excluding some TypeC members]

    I just bought and watched The Conjuring on blu-ray. Would hardly consider it the scariest movie ever made, but it gets better every time I watch it.

    Hmm, checked them out, seems like both are the works of the same director? I'll give The Innkeepers a try. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 79%.

    Ah, Johnny Depp! Also love Sleepy Hollow. I haven't watched all the series in The Interview with the Vampire, but love the original movie! LOVE IT! Can watch it over, and over!!

    Watched it. Was pretty okay, not that memorable. I don't think I can watch it again.

    One issue I have with horror flicks, that rely on the suspense, is that I can't watch it more than once, as the thrill is devoid the second time, because I know who is lurking around the corner and what he/she/it will do.

    Spanish and Japanese horror flicks, by far, outrank Hollywood ones.

    The Orphanage (2007, I believe) - is a spanish flick that I'd highly recommend.

    [REC] another one.

    Non-supernatural thriller movies, Snowtown (2011) - based on the real life Australian serial Killer, Bunting. Superb. And FUCKED UP!! Disturbing to the core. The lead was brilliant! Absolutely brilliant!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Keep them coming, folks!!!

    I missed watching Session 9 last Halloween; I'll make up for that this year.
    And it's been awhile since I watched the uncut version of The Descent.

    Went to the dollar theater with my kid two weeks ago or so and I loved watching him flip out. Both he and I agreed that the last 20 minutes (where everything is visualized and tangible and seems to become your typical "possession" movie) wasn't nearly as good for us as the first half of the movie, where it's just a total creepfest and half the time nothing actually happens... it's the potential for something happening that really gets you.

    Even after having seen it once, I still got creeped out the second time, and jumped in my seat a few times.

    Gonna guess you mean the version with Kurt Russell...

    Saw it. Was kind of disappointed, although some of the banter was pretty neat.

    For Ti West flicks, I liked his "The House of the Devil" the most, to be honest. And it really recreated that 70's look and feel, even down to the opening credits.

    There is nothing quite like that first viewing, is there?

    But I still can get creeped out by some pics multiple times. There's nothing like watching an Asian ghost with bloody eyes crawl/slither/jerk down a staircase headfirst, ya know....

    In general, I agree.

    I watched part of it. I had trouble staying engrossed, but I do think the characters were pretty disturbing.

    Watched both! Loved both!

    Actually, my friends and I watched The Descent while at the cottage, 2 years ago. And earlier this year, I wanted to go blackwater rafting and caving, and my friend ADAMANTLY refused, referencing "The Descent" as a valid excuse for being a wimp! So, I went by myself. Was a blast. Kinda was HOPING for some creatures, but only saw bats and eels, and amazing, beautiful gorgeous, glowworms. That made the cave look like a starry night sky.

    Opposite of horror, really.

    Yup, the suspense, the wait.....

    All right, The Innkeeper is out, The House of the Devil is in. To start off with, giving this director a try. If I like it, I'll watch the other.

    The Ring was good. Did you (also) watch the original Japanese version?

    I can see that, it is one of those movies, I find, I have to watch alone, quiet and concentrate. As the build-up is slow. And the pulse of the movie has to be felt pretty early on, to stay hooked.

    Ha, nice!

    I mean, the thing with the critters is pretty nasty in itself. For me, what really makes it ache is the fair representation of a group of strong females who are presented as women (not just men with long hair), and the whole interpersonal story between Juno and Sarah and Beth, and how the "descent" is not just referring to the depth of the hole they are in but also Sarah's potential descent into madness + into a statement of mind churning around revenge and forgiveness, loss and grief.

    I'd love to go into one of the ginormous sinkhole caves overseas, the famous ones that almost have their own internal biosphere jungle. But I get kind of antsy at the thought of crawling headfirst into a hole barely large enough to hold me. Ugggh.

    The Ring was good. Did you watch the original Japanese version?
    On my list. I like to compare them.

    it was interesting to compare the two versions of The Grudge, especially with them by the same director but the second was the "American" version AKA for American audiences.
