OT - Horror Movies
I really like a good horror movie. Not so much the slasher kind, but I do love ghosts and monsters. Nothing too real; I can just watch the news for that kind of horror. I've seen so many asian horror movies I'm beginning to find myself afraid of all long black hair.

And I'm always on the lookout for a good movie to creep me out. So, anyone have any good recommendations?

I love them too.

Nothing new comes to mind at the moment but, have you seen Rose Red?

i actually bought rose red when it came out on DVD and read the book. It's just too bad that the second half of the movie wasn't as good as the first. Still good but not great.

Oooh, I love scary movies!

There's The Shining - a classic.

Identity was good -John Cusack was in it.

Saw messed me up for a few days but is a bit on the bloody side but very mental too.

The Other scared the crap out of me when I was a kid and I watched it again this year and still pretty creepy.

In Dreams- Annette Bening pretty good.

Haunted- Adian Quinn, I love Adian Quinn.

I'll stop now. I'm getting chills .

Yeah, In Dreams was freaky! I love Asian horror movies. I just taped "Ju On" which was the original ~ the American one was "The Grudge" which was pretty good, actually. It seems like when we remake them most of the time they're crap. This one was pretty good. "The Ring" was good. It, too, was a remake of a Japanese movie! "The Ring Two" wasn't as good as the first, which seems typical. "The Eye" was good.

If you like old movies, Wait Until Dark (starring Audrey Hepburn) and Gaslight (Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman) are really good psychological thrillers. Rope is a good one, too - can't beat Jimmy Stewart.

Sweet, I'ma go put some of these in my queue. I've seen about half of them, but not the other half.

The Eye (the first, not the second) is one of my favorite horror movies. That elevator scene is nice and long and drawn out, the way a scary scene should be.

As for The Ring, I had the Japanese version (on crappy VCD from China) before the American one came out, and I have the Korean version, too. The Korean version (Ring Virus) isn't as good as either the American or Japanese one, IMO.

Just watched Ju-on 2. Every Japanese movie I've ever seen has confused me. Speaking of which, I also liked one called, what was it?, One Missed Call or something like that.

I can't watch stuff like Saw. Me and torture don't get along real well.

So, about The Shining, what was up with the guy in the bear suit?

I don't know...I fall asleep watching the shining every time, and it is always about the time the scary twins show up... Kind of freaks me out actually.

oh you could check this out to see if it is in your area yet. They were out a couple of weeks ago here. Apparently they are so bad they can't be seen in general viewings (though they did show them at the local AMC so not sure what that's about.)

The times weren't convenient for me so I didn't get to see them so no recommendations.
