I loved that one. Gross and funny. Good repeat-viewing value too.

What? No B&W? The Haunting, Black Sunday, Bride of Frankenstein, Haaxen, Nosferatu, The Innocents... Look outside your box and you'll find out how many riches there are that you aren't even considering.

You guys should make an Asian Horror Movie list, I recently started watching a few of those and some of them are just incredible, Train To Busan is possibly the best zombie movie I've ever seen!

Wow, some great horror films listed here. I would add Jeepers Creepers to my list. I loved the first two and am watching the third one on Netflix. I find the third one so far to have some interesting ideas, but pretty bad execution (why is he out in the daylight so much?).

Yes, finished it up last night and I would not put JC3 in my top 20 (or top 100) personal horror movies. Though the first one would be up there.

Asian horror genre: Oldboy (2005). Bizarre, violent, earthy, fun. The ending is to die for ...

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

I have. It's a pretty good horror movie that is quite sad as well. Worth a watch I'd say.

Has no one else ever noticed that Alien was the first sci-fi film with a brave, resourceful and strong FEMALE heroine?

RAW on Netflix is pretty disturbing. French subtitled though.

Dont know if there should be sub categories here....( slasher vs. classic horror) ? Anyway...the movie that started it all was Nosferatu (1922) you should also check out Dreyer's - Vampyr (1932) if you want to dig deep. For the classic horror fans... an overlooked hidden gem with an actual cool story line , Ghost Story (1981) . Along with those, my other faves are The Shining/ Salem's Lot/ Phantasm.

Boring.

It was disturbing in the beginning but then everything after a certain character died, it became just oh-so-cliche and terribly predictable, even if I completely shut off my brain. It's a meh movie, applaud them for trying something a little different but at the end - there's really nothing that disturbing about it.

I really enjoyed it up to the last 20 minutes. I disliked the ending, a lot. I was fine with everything up until that point, and had no issue with the incident you described. I found the movie creepy, and emotionally taxing, but walked away hugely letdown by the end of the movie.
