I think I posted this the last couple of years around here. 

I wish that one guy was here from OSW...was it H.P. Lovecraft or Dr. Abnormality?

The guy knew his shit about the horror movies.

Are they any new ones that came out in the last year worth watching?

It seems like anybody can get a slasher flick on DVD.

I am sick and tired of the ones like Saw and Turistas. 

What are your favorite older ones?

Since you mentioned HP Lovecraft ( a scary looking guy in himself) I loved the movie Re-Animator

It has been out a couple of years now, but I really enjoyed Zombieland with Woody Harrelson...I think it's been the best horror movie I have seen in quite a few years (since Shaun of the Dead)

Yeah, I saw that one.  I did think that was pretty good compared to the other shit that has been put out.

Zombieland 2 is supposedly coming out in 2013, hopefully they manage to bring back all the original cast

Zombieland was a rare movie where the movie seemed like it would be a good cheesy flick on the commercials that was both horror and comedy.  I think the nest part of the movie was when they shot and killed Bill Murray and dumped his body

I don't consider Zombieland a real horror flick.   It was comedy, in the vein of Shaun Of The Dead.

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.

Best I've seen in a while was the original Spanish-language [REC].  Not the American version or the sequel, watch the original with the subtitles.  It's not fantastic but true horror is a dead genre because everything now is re-makes and torture porn, so this is about as good as you'll get these days.

Zombieland is great. I have watched up probably 10 or 12 times. I agree, not really a horror movie, but a horror-comedy.

I just recently watched the 1st Scream movie again. It was good. I remember watching Poltergeist as a kid and being scared to death. I watched it last year about this time with my oldest son and it sucked ass. He thought it was stupid. Did not hold up well. I also just watched The Evil Dead for the first time. Horrible, horrible movie...but I loved every minute of it. Bruce Campbell is awesome.

I love good (and bad) Slasher flicks and I am a sucker for any Zombie or Vampire movie. With that said, here are a few of my favorites.

Silent Night, Deadly Night
30 Days of Night
The Shining
Underworld
Texas Chainsaw Massacre

(Not sure if Underworld is considered a horror movie, but God Damn Kate Beckinsale is super fuckin' hot in it and it is one of my favorites.)

'From Beyond' is kind of a sequel to 'Reanimator' and worth watching.

The new TV series 'American Horror Story' has potential.

As old as they are, I still enjoy the Hammer Studios Christopher Lee - Peter Cushing films.    Although most of the films based on Steven King's stuff isn't very good, I really liked both 'The Shining' and 'It', if you can get past the fact that 'It' falls apart in the last ten minutes the same way the book fell apart in the last fifteen pages.

I don't know how it would hold up since I haven't seen it in years, but when I was in the 5th grade, Vincent Price's 'The Pit and the Pendulum' scared the hell out of me and gave me nightmares.

The exorcist gave me nightmares as a kid, but now, its tame.

The original nightmare on Elm street(part 2 as well) and original Friday the 13th were good.

IMO a horror franchise should only go at most, to 3 movies.  After 3, they get stupid for the most part
