I'm a fan of scary movies.

I've seen all of the old ones but what about the new ones? I'm a fan of the Saw Series. Anyone rented/purchased any new scary flicks with some good twists and turns?

Please list the name and a bit about the movie without giving too much away...

You're funny Ken. I know, a lot of people who cannot handle these movies.

I've always loved them... well most of them. I hate the typical slasher stuff. I like the ones that keep you on the edge of your seat and make you think. The kind that make you afraid to go off to the bathroom alone as you feel like the psycho is waiting for you in there. eek

Seems like they're all zombie movies these days. Wish I could recc. one, but I wait till they come to my DVR before I watch them.

On that note, these aren't scary movies, but I did like "Lucky number slevin" and "The departed".

I still vote for either Psycho, or The Shining as good scary movies to watch, no matter how many times you've seen 'em.

The Shining is one of the best of the best.

"Seven" with Pitt and Freeman was good to. Anything with a psychological twist works for me.

Especially in October... nothing like a good scare.

Yep. Seven was hard to watch for me to watch, especially the guy that ate himself to death. Or maybe the pervert guy. That's a tough call. Definately a good movie though. I'm a big horror film fan as well, I'll try to think of some i like.. I know I know, but I just don't know at the moment.

I prefer supernatural, or "ghost" movies. Among my favorites are "The Shining", "The Changeling (not the new one), "The Amityville Horror" and "The Sixth Sense".

Oh, and don't laugh, but "The Blair Witch Project" scared the crap out of me, but because at the time, they had us believing it was a true story. I was so disappointed when I found out it was a fake.

I fall in with Ed on that. Rhonda - how can you possibly watch "Saw"? Ugh........... I have my gore limits.... I can't watch any of it without cringing.

Not necessarily horror/supernatural movies, but I did like all 3 hypercube movies.

Alright, good topic!

----

28 Days Later : good horror/thriller that draws you in and keeps you hanging to the end. Great writing, great effects and a different than normal "zombie" profile. It also had a fantastic follow up with 28 Weeks Later .

As mjw suggested, the Rob Zombie flicks are a great way to go. House of 1000 Corpses , The Devil\'s Rejects and the Halloween re-interpretation.

As far as Saw... Saw 1 was amazing, new and fantastic : Saw 2 was a great follow up and expanded well on the story : Saw 3 fell apart and seemed like it was grasping at a lingering story line : Saw 4 ... didn't see yet, because I was turned off by 3.

Matt1964 is right on about the Cube movies. Cube , Cube 2 : Hypercube and Cube Zero are an amazing trilogy of movies. Suspense, thrillers with a little bit of horror.

Jeepers Creepers was not the scariest movie ever, but is a personal favorite because of the development of the story. It really draws you in and has a good payoff.

If you;re up on the old ones, then I'm sure you saw the original, but the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead was done really well.

The Toolbox Murders is a really good mystery-horror flick that never got the attention it should have. It's about an old Hollywood hotel that's got an evil in it.

Suspect Zero is a good thriller with a Law & Order/Dexter type crime drama feel to it... which reminds me

--> DEXTER <--

is one of the best written crime-drama thriller-horror series' I've ever seen. It is just now starting season three on Showtime, and is well worth starting from the beginning. I know they do a censored re-broadcast on some basic cable channel, but it is not remotely the same.

I know you said you've seen all the "old ones", but I'm still throwing a few out there to make sure you've seen them.

Eraserhead : a classic post-apocalyptic suspense thriller by David Lynch. ( Lost Highway ) is another great Lynch writing achievement.

Also, A Nightmare on Elm Street , Hellraiser , The Thing or the original Halloween are always good flicks to ease into a horror movie marathon.

----

There are so many more, but that should be a good start
wink

~edit~

P.S. - to Ed : You are absolutely right about "The Blair Witch Project" it was amazingly good and scary... until it was ruined, at which point of course it seemed deflated. I defy anyone that saw it before all the spoilers to not have been freaked out. I saw it opening night at the midnight showing... and yeah that was a tense walk to the car in a cold, dark parking lot.
