    I like Insidious to the point where the father gets lost inside the other world with this old wierd lady. I just do not get the old lady part of it.

    I saw both and actually liked Let Me In better than Let The Right One In (the original Swedish version). I thought all the plot changes made for a better and more heartbreaking storyline. The one criticism I have for Let Me In compared to the original is that I think it would have been better to use less special effects and just rely more on atmosphere.

    Gotta agree that she was the weakest link. The first half was stronger than the second but it still made me jump out of my seat a few times.

    The old lady was the apparition that was after him when he was a boy. When he was in that session with the old lady as a kid they made him forget that he had the ability to travel to the astral world. So, once they "unlocked" his ability to astral walk again, that old bag was waiting for him. Cept this time she got him icon_sad.gif

    But he was a dumbass because he should've just got his son and got out. nobody told him to stand and look at her saying "I'm not scared of you" over and over. Great movie tho icon_biggrin.gif

    The Unborn was a really good one, and for a nice psychological thriller I suggest The Uninvited icon_smile.gif

    I liked Insidious as well. The whole movie was good until the last part where the guy stood at the window screaming at the apparition, just dumb... Anyway, if an old movie doesn't bother you, I recommend watching Stephen King's book turned to movie called "Rose Red". Very interesting, long-lasting and scary as well.

    Lol, that is not an old movie. icon_wink.gif I haven't seen it, so I'll take a look.

    I can't tell exactly what the thread is about as some of the original posts were hidden, but if we're talking haunted house type movies, I like them a lot.

    Faves include The Haunting (1963 version ONLY!!!), The Legend of Hell House (1973), and Burnt Offerings (1976).

    This film got very little press and I don't know of anyone else who's seen it. It didn't get the best reviews but it scared the bajesus out of me, and I don't scare easily at movies. Oh, and the hottest guy is at :50. icon_wink.gif

    This one is not a horror movie but it's pretty scary thanks to the little girl's acting. The Orphan.

    Aahh! I watched these both at the same time a while back! Scared me shitless but some of my favorite freaky moments! I had to run and slam my bedroom door closed when I turned off the hall light for weeks!

    Another good one I liked was Mirrors. Until my bathroom light flickered from a loose bulb when I was in the shower later that night!

    The original "NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD" scared the crap out of me as a kid. The ultimate horror movie (and the only one ever nominated for a "Best Picture" Oscar) is "THE EXORCIST". I also think the "FINAL DESTINATION" movies are fun and scary in a jump-out-of-your seat kind of way

    Well, If you want a real scary movie with all the gory effects or something that'll make you pee in your pants like a real psychological horror movie, I would suggest you check these out:
    1- A tale of 2 Sisters (The Uninvited 2009 is the US remake of this one but it's no match for the original)
    2- Art of the Devil 2 (Get someone to watch it with you icon_biggrin.gif)
    3- Shutter (The original Thai version, not the boring US remake)
    4- Infection (Japan)

    Insidious is fantastic. You really should have seen it on the IMAX...

    Newer movies, I would say..."The Orphanage" a spanish horror movie.

    See it on blu-ray as it is LOUD!icon_eek.gif

    I just ordered August underground's Mordum. Apparently it's the most disturbing, disgusting, violent horror film around. None of this Hollywood horror style. I'd imagine if you like the Marquis de Sade's writing and serial killers then it would be of interest to you. Can't wait for it to arrive.

    venue35 saidrburton that is one hell of a list!!!!!
    I don;t think i saw Fright Night in there. AWESOME performance by Roddy Mcdowell. Hostel really scared me and Se7en is pretty creepy too. Also Jagged Edge is really good Jeff Bridges gives an amazing performance.
    When i was a kid I had seen this really creepy movie with Nathony Hopkins as a ventriloquist...and the dummy starts talking by himself that scared the hell out of me.Also worth checking out is the original 'Stepfather' from 1987 with the o'quinn guy from Lost. One hell of a performance.


    I'm sure I left out a ton of good stuff, but it already seemed excessive.

    Jagged Edge is one of the only Joe Eszterhas movies I like. I'd pair that as a double feature with his Showgirls, which is a horror movie of an entirely different kind.

    My favorite scary movie is definitely The Strangers. Plus the dude is really hot.
    But I watched Insidious last night, and it is definitely worth the watch!

    The Innocence and Carnival of Souls are good old fashioned horror flicks from the early 60's. CoS was the inspiration for Night of the Living Dead and The Sixh Sense. Let's Scare Jessica to Death is another one from the 70's. Very bizarre.

    if you want something truly fucking scary, try asian horror icon_smile.gif Coming Soon scared the shit out of me. Juon II (the Asian version) is apparently one of the scariest asian horrors as well.
