    What is Your Favourite Horror Film?
    There are some really good recent horror films imo - Eden Lake, 28 days later, Wolf Creek, that one with the caving women?

    There is also a LOT of rubbish. Inside, a french film i think, is horrible, full of gore which I don't mind but makes absolutely no sense. I'm spoiling it for your own good as you shouldn't watch it - a woman chooses a knitting needle for a weapon instead of a gun.

    Anyway. What is you're all time favourite? Can range from films even like Jaws or Alien?

      Ringu would be may fav with the original version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre being second and Alien being third.

        Is ringu the japanese the ring? If so I don't think I ever saw it as I didn't think much of the us one? That maybe totally wrong, I'll have to look into it.

        Anyway, the original Texas Chainsaw massacre is my first choice. It hit it dead right between B movie stuff and horribly real. It goes on and on with no let up and is bloody awesome.

        The original night of the living dead is suprisingly good too, if you get the chance to watch it. And from the modern ones Cube is good, with a sci-fi twist kind of.

          Yeah it's the original Jap version, I was lucky enough to watch it well before the American version was made.
          Very different to the American version which made it more a thriller and changed a lot of things for the worse...well to make it PG-13.

          Texas Chainsaw I love because it's so unsettling and you see no gore at all and it's your imagination that paint's all of the bad things that happens in the film.
          Brilliant film and I laugh at people who criticize for being gory etc as the worse bit you see in the whole film is when a body twitches after being hit by a hammer.

            Except for when the girl is put on hook? It probably didn't show that though and you fill in most of the details in your mind.

            I think all the actors were good which made a major difference. And the guy in the wheel chair gave a real sense of imprisonment. I don't think it was great movie making, just a fluke, but it is great.

              Nah it wasn't a fluke, he did it on purpose quite clearly and demonstrated he's a great director just from that film.
              Tobe Hooper has since done Poltergeist, Salem's Lot and helped with the TV show Dark Skies but it's mainly with his time on Poltergeist which hurt his career in my view as Spielberg was very controlling on that film. Still a good film but Spielberg admits himself he was unfair on him.

                Had to post this as Ringu is in the topic, if you haven't seen The Ring or Ringu then this is a big spoiler but my God! so funny.
                If you have no interest in watching either or already have seen the films then just watch it.

                Ringu is excellent. I, too, saw it before the US film got made and I'm thankful for that. That and Dark Water.

                Best thing to do when you've got a mate to watch Ringu for the first time is to hide your mobile by the seat ready to ring your home phone at the right time!

                No one seems to like this movie but me, so I'm not really recommanding it to anyone here, but one of my fave horror flicks would have to be (Clive Barker's) Lord of Illusions.



                Another one that I rather liked was White Noise.



                Lastly of course, is the excellent Event Horizon.
