Best one I've seen over past decade or so has to be the Paranormal Activity flicks.  Realistic as it gets, tense moments...great FX.  And if you haven't seen Insidious yet, I highly recommend it.   Another really good one is The Descent.

But the best of the oldies are the first two Halloween's, original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and a personal favorite of mine...Motel Hell.

Insidious was not rated that high...what did you like about it without giving spoiler information.  I just added it to my queue.

I just saw a decent one on Turner Classics.  special effects were cheesey but it was well-acted.  Shit, what was the name of it?  Does Turner or some other station still do the marathons around Halloween?  They got a lot of vincent Price stuff on Turner now.  Wax Museum and others.


Night of the Demon (1957)...if you are into older movies....pretty good one.

I thought Scream 4 was good. Not as good as one and two but better than three.

 Nightmare on Elm Street This is one of the great horror movies of all time. I am not a horror movie buff but this was a great story. Also the Exorcist scared me when i was a kid

When I was a kid, I remember watching a made-for-TV movie on CBS called "Dark Night of the Scarecrow". It didn't have a lot of blood and gore, instead it relied upon terror and the "Oh My God! What's gonna happen next?" factor.

Thanks to Google, I found out that this movie was released to DVD in 2010 - it was originally aired in the early 80's - and is available on Netflix. I might have to add it to my queue for Halloween.

I actually like horror films that are gory, but I also like suspenseful type movies also, movies that have a little gore, but the killing comes out of nowhere and surprises you

The original "Halloween" with Donald Pleasance still kicks all sorts of ass.

The sequel is also very good. They lost me after that.

The original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" was very good.

Edit-I also forgot the first two "Friday the 13th". It got way retarded afterwards.

Somebody mentioned "Psycho" and "The Birds"-excellent calls.

The original 1978 'Dawn Of The Dead' is still the greatest of them all for me. Awesome movie.
The third movie in Romero's 'Dead' films, 'Day Of The Dead' is great as well.

I actually enjoyed the sequel to '30 Days Of Night: Return To Barrow."

The first 2 Halloween's were good. IMO. The first Nightmare on Elm St was also good.

Watched the Evil Dead yesterday from around 1981.  Wasn ot that bad, but it sort of reminded me of the Friday the 13th series from that era.  Talk about buckets of blood being sprayed, shooting out, pouring out .....there was gallons of blood being emptied out in the final 15 minutes.

It seems easy to make a great horror movie, but nearly impossible to make a great sequel.

I guess that's kind of true with all movies.

Halloween, the Exorcist, Nightmare, Chainsaw, Psycho, and Friday the 13th were all great in their first installments but the sequels blew. For me the exception is Friday the 13th part 2.

I'm more partial to films that could really happen and are more suspenseful than gory. Psycho and Silence of the Lambs are my favorites.

New ones, I recommend "Vanishing on 7th Street" while my old lady would recommend "Yellow Brick Road"

Now keep in mind when you see the names Thandie Newton and Hayden Christensen, you would want to run for the fucking hills and at first I thought I might do that but my old lady made me give it a chance and I wasn't disappointed.

Haven't seen Yellow Brick Road but she says it was pretty scary and she knows her horror movie shit.

Old ones

I love

Original Dawn of the Dead - 23 years later and I still don't see it showing it's age scarewise

Demons - Come for the soundtrack, stay for the Fulci-esque kills

Zombi3 and Zombie 4 - How often do you see a shark and zombie fight it out? lol

Evil Dead - Nuff said

The Feast Trilogy ... Some of the most screwed up monster kills you will see

Darn it all.  I hate it when I reply to a thread and the memory flood gates come pouring lol

A good suspense movie for my money is "The Cube"

Don't necessarily recommend the sequel but the original is pretty damn good
