This thread is to discuss the often underappreciated genre of film - horror.
Granted, there are a lot of horrible scary movies out there - and a lot of them are coming out of Hollywood. Watered down PG-13 movies that try to reach as many people as possible, but in the end appeal to nobody - why do they even bother making those when they haven't been making that much money over the last few years?
Don't even get me started on the direct-to-DVD horror sequels - although I will say Wrong Turn 2 was surprisingly much better than the first one.
When a great horror film comes out, however, I am loving every second of it.
Here is a short list of what I consider to be truly great horror films -
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original)
Dawn of the Dead (the original)
The Last House on the Left (the original)
Tetsuo - The Iron Man
Masters of Horror - Imprint
So, does anybody else here appreciate a great horror film when one comes along? If so, what are your favorites? If not, well, the genre is not for everybody, so I won't try to convert you. Heh.
