I guess I fit in the category of not liking Candyman, sorry. Just didn't scare me...

spanish joke

I lost count with the jaws movies. The same with the well articulating sylvester stalone ' rocky' movies.

I really liked how sylvester acted in the first ROCKy movie. Then in his later movies he freezed up and he became a commercial actor.

All of the Arnold zwarsnegger's movies are about horror. It is just so damned horrible to have to listen to arnold talk. His acting is worse than clinton smoking a joint.

Throw me down for Dario Argento's "Suspiria" from 1977. Best. Horror. Ever.

Gotta love the soundtrack, the M.C. Escher-inspired art direction, and Jessica Harper.

Just thinkin' about it gives me the willies -- wooo!

Chris,

Don't forget about the Technicolor craziness!

Next to some great movies mentioned here (The Shining, Jaws, Se7en,...) I would like to add RINGU, the first Japanese original.
Great mood, perfect music,creepy sound effects and a twist at the end that kept me up all night :-)

I thought My Little Eye was good to, especially that everything was filmed through the eyes of the camera. Shame they made the last part like a slasher triller.

I agree about "Ringu"---that ending gve me a start. The (Japanese) sequel was not very interesting, nor was the American remake.

Has anybody seen "Saw" ...?

1. IT: the scariest thing to do is to make a clown into a monster real freaky shit i couldnt sleep for days when i was a kid

2.the sixt sense: that movie blew me away .the scenes with the woman who sliced her wrists was just 'pissing in my pants'' scene

3 also E.T :-) : the first half hour was shitting in my pants.actually after the first shot of et's finger i would just stop the vcr.another scene i would shit my pants was when that kid was waiting outside in the garden ,wow man coulndt get any scarier.

and fourth but not least, Candyman: no words for this one :-)

1. "The Shuttered Room"... at least until the last 15 minutes when it gets a bit cheesy. (I'm betting no one here's ever seen it--I've yet to meet anyone who has. It must be one of the first uses of handheld jittercam to illustrate the POV of the monster/thing)
2. Cocteau's "La Belle et la BÍte" - not a horror film, but pretty eery imagery just the same
3. Some black and white made-for-TV movie that came out in the 60s where a man gets trapped in a department store at night and the mannequins come to life -- anyone remember that?
4. Audition

Sorry, Chris, Suspiria is on the list of films you couldn't pay me to see again, along with Roman Polanski's Repulsion.

Though I'll see anything by Argento once.

I saw Saw (saw2?) last night. One of the stupider films, IMHO, but with good production values and well-shot.
