TenseAndSober:
I'm not that into horror movies, but have seen and liked a few.
I love The Exorcist(William Friedkin)probably my fav.
Of course Psycho (Hitchcock)
Texas Chain Saw Massacre was definitely a good one (Tobe Hooper)
The Omen Series...1, 2 and The Final Conflict..(not the fourth one)
American Werewolf in London, (John Landis) (Paris sucked)
The Fly(David Cronenberg)
The Shining(Kubrick)
Carrie(De Palma)
Rosemarys Baby(Polanski) i love this one.
The first Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and Halloween were good.
I cant remeber any others right now.
David Lynch made some freaky films as well...Eraserhead... Elephant Man.
I guess theyre not exactly horror but are pretty disturbing.

now did anybody REALLY think this movie was scary. I thought it was one of the funniest movies ever made. I nearly pissed myself when they made that girl piss herself! When the mom bites off the guy's dick... PRICELESS! It was one of the best worst movies ever made, not one second of it even made me shudder. What's even funnier are the interviews on the dvd where wes craven is like, "this scene was very hard to shoot because, it's just so...uncomfortable. i even get squeamish when i watch it..." is he kidding? it's like a scene out of spinal tap or something, i couldn't believe anybody could take this movie seriously.

I found the rape scene pretty disturbing...when the parents get involved it gets a bit riddiculous though.

I could be way off but he was probably talking about the way he was treated in the film. I know I found that aspect pretty damn disturbing, like a wake up call for how freaking cruel people can be, you know...I don't know.

Anyway, some of my favorite horror movies.....

the birds
fear (96 version)
halloween
jaws
psycho (original, just saw it)
rear window
rosemary's baby
the shining
signs
silence of the lambs
sleepy hollow

Yeah, I know I need to see a lot more. I've actually always wanted to see Last House on the Left...I hope it's not that horrible, I love the idea. I would fucking beat a guy inside out if he raped my sister...or my daughter if I had one...how does it get ridiculous when the parents get involved?
