View Full Version : Best Horror Film?

What is the best horror film you've seen so far? Mine is The Eyes of My Mother.

May 19th, 2017, 05:42 PM
Definitely not the best, but the last one I watched was Rob Zombie's 31. It was pretty messed up.
There are so many great ones, I could never pick a best.
Halloween (original and remake)
High Tension
the Shining
original Nightmare on Elm Street
House of 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects
the first Saw
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
If you like just gorefest movies:
the Burning Moon
I've seen some really bizarre stuff. My guy friends have disturbing taste, but I watch anyway.

Ive been having night terrors since I was 12 from The Grudge... lol

The babadook

I just saw it tonight.
Alien: Covenant
It was such a great film.
Horror, action, philosophy, and religion, were blended seamlessly into a visual work that I can only describe as a "cinematic masterstroke".
I think it is the best movie I have ever seen. I don't say that lightly either considering the quality of films today. But Alien: Covenant is a rarity in so many more ways than one. I was blown away. I intend to see it a second time, and I cannot WAIT for the DVD release. I highly recommend you buy a ticket and watch it while it is still in theaters. You absolutely will not regret it.

The Silence of the Lambs!

I'm not a particular horror film fan, but the film Hush was really good

House of 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects were not really scary but they were very disturbing and incredibly atmospheric.

Lords of Salem is another Rob Zombie film that is not scary but does a great job of creating a creepy and interesting atmosphere.

As far as just fun and ridiculous horror movies go, I love Saw, Hellraiser, and Final Destination.

I am a big fan of Hostel as a scary film. I always found A Nightmare on Elm Street to be very scary. Then again, I find most true horror films to be terrifying.

I like horror but ironically I don't wtch many horror movies lol.
Among the ones I've seen, I'd say Alien/Aliens/Alien Covenant are all very good, as was the Babadook, which I think might be one of the best recent horror movies, especially since it was so original and done on such a small budget.

The Conjuring
The Shining ("Here's Johnny!")
Sixteen Candles
Nightmare On Elm Street
Texas Chainsaw Massacres

The Conjuring definitely got me the worst. The Ring also gets an honorable mention.

Most horror films bore the crap out of me.
I liked the old Omen trilogy a lot, as well as some 00's titles like "The Descent" (2005), A. Aja's "Mirrors" (2008) and the original "[Rec]" (2007) in the found footage style.

June 26th, 2017, 12:35 PM
(I'm such a nerd) Personally I love the old Alfred Hitchcock movies (Psyco, Rear Window etc) I'm not a huge fan of scary monsters and stuff so I prefer psychological horrors (and the Shining)

June 26th, 2017, 01:38 PM
Definitely The Conjuring.

Don't really like horror but thought Cabin in the Woods was so good. Scary but also funny.

Don't really like horror but thought Cabin in the Woods was so good. Scary but also funny.

Cabin in the Woods was really good, and even a bit ahead of the times if you look at some movies that came out after it. I should go back and rewatch it

I love the Saw movies. They have an interesting back story. Great message (If you look beyond all the gore and sadisticism.) The basic message is to value your life and be greatful. (Some people are terminally and wont get to live the life you live.)

I recently watched The Ring (original Japanese version) and that was pretty freaky

November 16th, 2017, 08:27 PM
Evil Dead from the early 80s. Or maybe Children of the corn. Both scare me alot.

November 24th, 2017, 08:04 AM
when i was little, i thought the Wizard of Oz was really really scary and i made me have nighmares. the evil witch, those scary flying monkeys, and being lost so far far away from home... OH MY! lol

most horror movies i can't finish watching because they are too scary. i like the Scream movies because they aren't really that scary.

November 24th, 2017, 06:09 PM
Evil Dead

November 24th, 2017, 06:16 PM
Dead Snow was pretty good.

November 29th, 2017, 06:43 AM
The Sixth Sense is my favorite horror film. It's just so well done.

December 2nd, 2017, 08:43 AM
I like the Shining, The Mist, the Fog. There's heaps I just can't think of them all! Resident evil series is pretty good too, not really scary tho.

December 2nd, 2017, 10:35 AM
Sixteen Candles

How was Sixteen Candles a horror movie? It's a funny 80s flick! But I do agree with The Conjuring, since the jumpscares got me many times. As for the most gore movie, SAW series, and they don't exactly scare me, but its just very bloody since you know what's happening and its not much of a surprise to see people hurt themselves to survive.

I LOVED 'Hush'. Basic plot, but I appreciated it after a year of horror movies that in my opinion were just 'trying too hard' .

December 18th, 2017, 09:31 PM
Paranormal activity
The shining
Blair witch project

December 25th, 2017, 11:42 PM
You’re Next is probably the best one I’ve seen

December 26th, 2017, 12:32 PM
John Carpenter's The Thing.

It's like Aliens, but, pushed to the limit.

January 1st, 2018, 11:27 AM
Just watched HUSH it was good.

January 16th, 2018, 02:53 AM
One of my favourite horror movies of all time was the first Jeepers Creepers movie.

January 16th, 2018, 06:54 AM
Pet Sematary (That's how its spelled) is the most scariest movie I ever saw.
