    I did this last year on the other site.

    The scary movie season is in and I figured I would make a thread to help those who are looking to update their Netflix queue or are heading into blockbuster for a creepy movie.

    What are some lesser known creeptastic films that you really enjoyed?
    or Just list your top 10 favs.


    I will start

    Candyman
    Blair Witch Project
    Hills Have Eyes
    The Ring
    Cabin Fever
    Wrong Turn
    Pet Sematary 1
    Pet Sematary 2
    The Lost Boys
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre (remake and old)

    there is my list of 10 in no order....im sure there are others but these are the ones that came to mind first.

    It definitely fits into the whole gore horror genre but with a comedic edge, I enjoyed it.

    love those ones. hellraiser is overrated I think, way more gory then scary.

    One I think all should see is in the mouth of madness.

    I think they are a mix. They are supposed to be picked by masters of horror and made by up and comers I guess? They come out a couple times a year in a series......

    The Shining. everything about that movie is creepy as hell.

    as a small child, bordering on being a baby...2 of my first movies were Jaws and the Shining. wtf were my parents thinking...there may be a lawsuit here.

    It. straight up scariest sh** i have ever seen. i had nightmares for years. in fact, i had the same nightmare, many times more than once in a given night. i'd be running up a staircase away from the clown, would eventually give up and cower in the corner, afraid to look at what was about to eat/kill me. then i would feel a really sharp pain in my side (which i assumed was a knife) and would wake up. one of the only times i ever felt pain in my dreams. anywho, in case anyone wants nightmares tonight, i give you this:

    Today is a good day-popped over to Best Buy at lunch and hit up the 4.99-6.99 Halloween DVD sale. The list:

    Friday the 13th
    Saw
    Saw 2
    Night of the Living Dead
    Dawn of the Dead
    Day of the Dead (all Romero originals, no remakes)
    From Dusk 'Til Dawn

    The replacing of the old worn out VHS tapes is in full swing!

    That TV mini series didnt do the book any justice at all. If you really want to be spooked you have to read the book. A TV mini series is no way to capture this story.

    The House of the Devil, The Children, The Collector, and Pandorum.
