Anyone a fan of horror movies on RO?
Old or new, scary or funny, come together
What are your favorites and discuss?
I loved VHS. I just love short film compilations and this was a great one.
Cabin in the Woods had the best twist ever.
But Sinister really scared the hell out of me
Re: Horror movies!
I'm an abosolute sook, but love to watch old horror movies. Mostly because the special effects are so dated all you can do is laugh haha. Paranormal Activity was funny, but only because my partner was so scared he had to watch it from the kitchen with the sound turned off :3
Most disturbing one I've seen lately would have to be Drag Me To Hell. Screw the ending to that
Re: Horror movies!
I think the original Alien was pretty scary. And I loved the set design and everything on that movie; it had a lot of visual imagery that I think kinda really helped the scare tactics.
The Cabin in the Woods is a pretty good satire on the slasher horror genre in general, I think. Like, when you first start watching it; it looks like it's just going to be another cliche slasher horror flick--actually, the first scene was purposely designed to make you think you'd walked into the wrong movie--but once it gets to the halfway mark; it has a few twists that really take a look at the genre.
I like The Green Mile as well, and The Shawshank Redemption. I'm not sure if you'd really call them straight up "horror", but it was based on a book by renouned horror author Stephen King.
Secret Window was also based on something by Stephen King, and it's a bit more traditionally in line with the idea of a horror movie. It's got Johnny Depp in it and he does pretty well in it. I'd tell you about the plot, but I really don't want to give anything away.
