    Scream, Urban Legend, I know What You Did Last Summer, Cherry Falls, The Faculty, Valentine (technically 2001), and of course all of their subsequent sequels...

    Re-watched a few of them with friends this weekend, felt really nostalgic for high school haha.

    90s was definitely a decadent, overindulgent time for the genre (and all movies in fact).

    those movies are pretty bad. especially Scream. really, late 90's was a disaster period for horror movies.

    Although Ginger Snaps was in 2000, it rates as one of the best teen horrors I've seen.

    Really? I love Scream because it was realistic, which made it the only slasher flick to scare me. And on top of that, it's the only movie listed on this thread that got great reviews from critics. Disagree :/

    ...i used to like Scream when I was ten.

    it's kinda embarrassing to admit but i even had ghostface's halloween mask.

    i don't think it's the worst movie ever. a lot of people think it's a good movie. especially if you base your parameters on 80's slashers like friday the 13th.

    i guess it's just not my cup of poison anymore.

    now i'm more like if i'm gonna watch a horror movie. it better be darn good.

    gimmie some David Lynch weird shit or Stanley Kubrick.
    that's more like it
    ;)

    The first "Nightmare on Elm Street" 1984 was the best.

    Cherry Falls is excellent, clever, much-underrated, and undeservedly obscure.

    If you can get your hands on 2005's nifty Cry Wolf, do it.

    Deep In The Woods, a French take on the classic Italian Giallo:

    Do You Wanna Know A Secret? is conceptually awful, but Joey Lawrence as the hero looks like he's traipsing back and forth from a gay porn shoot. He's so bronzed and oiled-up that he could just slip right out of the killer's clutches like a greased pig. Seriously, he sports the gayest ensembles I've ever seen, and he even has some incredibly gay Jeff Stryker-style martial arts moves. I was rolling on the floor with this one.

    High Tension (from France): a super-violent, not-what-you-think-it-is shriekfest. Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets Mulholland Dr.

    Canada's My Little Eye: not really a conventional slasher, but a grim story about a young group assembled for a reality series in an isolated locale who come to discover that they've been cast for a very nefarious reasons. Features the drug dealer from Ginger Snaps.

    May, with the peerless Angela Bettis as the troubled (but very sympathetic heroine). The last minute will have you rewinding with your jaw agape.

    Australia's Wolf Creek. Jesus, this is fucking terrifying, based on the real life Backpacker Murders in rural Australia.

    Red Riding Hood, lensed in Rome, has a little girl and her masked accomplice slicing up the locals they deem immoral. It's like a Giallo, but it's got some very eccentric touches. Plus, peanut butter is wielded as a deadly weapon.

    Romasanta (from Spain, I think) is based on a real-life spate of serial slayings by a vendor during the late 1800s (he claimed he was a werewolf). Julian Sands is in fine form as always.

    It was during the 90's that I first developed my love of horror films in general- all kicked off by watching the first Scream movie on VHS.

    After that it was IKWYDLS, Urban Legend, Halloween H20 etc etc literally any slasher I could get my hands on I watched. Then I looked into the good stuff from the 80's and I was hooked on the horror genre.

    I was such a big fan I could literally recite most of the dialogue from the first Scream movie by heart, now that's sad icon_lol.gif

    this was one of the worst movies I have recently seen:
    very twisted and just gross.

    I loved Traci Lords as the mom though

    All those movies. I think horror movies are fun, they're like roller coasters - you get that second of fear but mostly they're just fun.

    **The first scene in Urban Legend scared the living shit out of me when I first saw it - THERE'S SOMEONE IN THE BACK SEAT

    Exactly! But it's like 80s fashions I guess for the older people... They would never do them again, but it was fun at the time and thinking of the clothes brings back joyous memories.

    YES!!! There are some truly terrorizing moments in it... That movie is what gave me the idea for this thread.

    I haven't watched any horror movies of the last 10 years, the torture-porn era of horror and the poltergeist-y stuff era we're living in right now just doesn't do it for me.

    I'm not sure when it became prevalent (2000? 1996?) but I was a former horror fan who tuned out once they all started looking alike what with their music vid-inspired quick cutting, camera shots and music scores.

    Almost Blue: an obsessive mimic of a murderer dubbed "The Iguana" stalks Rome and assumes characteristics of his victims. There's a novel gender twist here that has a female homicide detective protecting a blind male likely victim.

    almost_blue-62631112.jpg

    Ripper: Letter From Hell: Wildly implausible -- what university has a course in apprehending pattern killers specifically available for undergrads? -- but still a fun movie. The heroine has dreadlocks and a Nomi Malone-style "Screw you! Screw everybody!" 'tude. Everyone splits up when they should stay together, the slutty girl and obvious first victim bites it at a rave, and there's a harrowing school vacation-gone-wrong back story. Cool fade-out imagery too.
