Horror Recommendations~
Post By Aikome. 18/11/09, 12:27 pm

Anyone know any reeeeeeeal good ones ?
I love horror < 3 in general.

It doesn't have to have an original storyline or anything. . cause I watch it for the lulz.
Never came across one that actually. . scared me~ except "Long Time Dead" ( but I watched it when I was eight so it doesn't count o-o;; )

I just so want some good ole horror to watch with my friends at night while munching.

So, any recommendations ?

Even if it's anime ?

Lol. Don't dismiss this straight away, but Frankenfish is actually decent. Despite the name Razz It is very, very B-grade in terms of script and content, but has some okay boo!scares in it. Think Lake Placid but with fish instead of crocs.

Versus is HILARIOUS.

It's set in a forest where anyone that dies comes back as a zombie 8D
....I fell asleep when we were watching it *fails at staying up late* though, so I don't remember much else lol.

Ginger Snaps: It's freaky in a gore way + a physics ed up emotional way.
Dead Snow: It is hilarious! And about zombie nazis. How can you lose?
Dance of the Dead: Zombies + prom! One of the better zombie movies I've seen recently, besides Dead Snow
Suicide Club: It isn't so much scary as one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen.

BEST.MOVIE.EVER. wellnotreallybutstill
the characters don't even have names, and one of the guys pulls the most hillarious funny faces.

I cant actually think of any movies, but for anime (oh not movies though), two spring to mind; Ghost Hunt - bout a group of paranormal investigators, and Ghost Hound - I dont know even know how to explain that one, but it has a few jump-out-of seat moments.
I've heard (hide 'n' seek) Kakurenbo is a scary short film, haven't seen it yet though.

I would also like to know some good actual scary horror movies, cause I haven't found any, some video games scare me more then movies ever have >_>'

Well if you only watch horror for the lulz I can probably suggest a good number.
I've put dates in parenthesis for the ones that have multiple versions.

Zombies:
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Zombieland (out in cinemas now)
Evil Dead 2
Braindead

Monsters (or stuff I can't categorize):
The Fly (1986)
The Thing (1982)
Alien and/or Aliens (not any of the other ones though)
Nosferatu (1979)
The Exorcist
The Ring/Ringu (so much fun, but you have probably seen one of the versions)

Serial Killers/Slashers:
Funny Games (either version is fun/cruel)
Psycho (1960 b&w fun)
Scream (self-aware horror is pretty fun when done right)
Child's Play (so ludicrously enjoyable)
Suspiria (Italian horror = visual feast for the eyes)

Nightmare Fuel:
Audition/Odishon (japanese horror at its most sadistic)
Videodrome

Probably plenty of more, but those are off the top of my head.

I ADORE Braindead. *sigh* Whenever I watch it though, my brain goes:

"Did the guys in Hollywood know about this film when they gave Peter Jackson a bazillion dollars to make Lord of the Rings?"

Evil Dead 2 is full of awesome. It's... not at all scary, but it's still good viewing.

Both REC movies were pretty scary. Especially the end of the first one, yikes.

I wasn't a fan of REC but I know I'm in the minority on that.

None of the Evil Dead triliogy are "scary" but I'm a huge fan of the bunch.

I'm also a fan of the "of the dead" series (i.e, land,night,day,dawn etc) however Not a fan of the remakes, I'm a classic type of guy.

Jaws is one of my favourite horrors of all time. actually i did a blog series on top 31 horrors october last year

On a more serious note:
The Amityville Horror or it's remakes (like the 2005 one) are good, if you know about it, or read the book. Don't get 2, 3 &4; They're rubbish.
Cloverfield. Blair Witch crossed with Godzilla, but a whole lot better than Blair Witch.
Dawn of the Dead. Zombies.
Doom. Good, but could've ben better.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Highly recomend this one.
I Am Legend. Will Sith did a good job in this.
The Mist. I've only seen the remake. It was good, reminded me of Half-Life.
Plant Terror. Cheesy. Done in "Evil Dead"/"Army of Darkness" (these are 80's B-Movies classics. watch them if you haven't seen them) style.
Resident Evil Series. First movie blew, rest were good. Also has Zombies
Silent Hill. I recommed this too.
The Unborn. Similar too Emily Rose, but not as 'extreme', tries to make it up with some action, but not as good.
