Triangle is pretty incredible. Highly recommended. Has an ending like no other.

Also, in response to the thread...

1) Alien
2) Carpenter's The Thing
3) Suspiria
4) Silence of the Lambs
5) Nightmare on Elm Street (this one's growing on me...)
6) It Follows
7) Ginger Snaps (big thanks to Cutler for recommending this one)
8) From Dusk Till Dawn (I wasn't going to count this as strictly "horror," but resident horror aficionado Bread included it, so I guess it counts)
9) The Fly
10) The Cabin in the Woods Edit: Forgot about The Mist. I'll make that my #10.

It's always been a difficult genre for me. Hard to get my hands on the films too, because although I've always been in charge of the Netflix queue, I feel it's my duty to at least try to pick films my parents will enjoy. And they both hate horror. Last weekend's double-header of Videodrome and Phenomena almost broke my poor mother.

Even when I do see them, it's a flip of the coin a lot of the time. Never cared for Halloween or the Evil Dead movies. That Friday the 13th crap was pretty terrible. But there are some gems from the genre that I do truly love. I want to get into the Romero zombie films when I find the time. I think I'll take a few recommendations from this thread and see if I can't sneak 'em into the Netflix queue sometime soon.

Romero's Day of the Dead is the best non-comedic zombie movie ever made, imo. Dawn is great too. I need to rewatch Night though. It's been a while. Land of the Dead is okay. Skip Diary, which is awful.

I predict a Diego Tutweiller 5/10.

All right, I'm trying to put together a list of horror movies to see this October for my tri-annual horror-athon. Here's what I've got so far:

Arachnophobia
House of the Devil
Hellraiser
Dawn of the Dead
Drag Me to Hell
Let the Right One In
Fright Night (the original)
Triangle
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Carrie
The Ring
Jacob's Ladder
Re-Animator

Any others I should see? I refuse to watch torture ****, so Saw ain't going on this list anytime soon.

The Shallows and Lights Out.  Both are pretty great recent horror flicks.  The Visit too, although I'm not sure if you'll like it.
Goodbye!

People Under the Stairs.

A lot of plot elements in Don't Breathe are actually very similar to those of that film (though granted Don't Breathe is a better film).
Everything is terrible.

Completely forgot about John Dies at the End. That'll take Slither's position in my top ten.

My fifty favorite horror films.

this works as long as you don't go all Moody and get your account banned over there...
Don't worry, I'm sure as **** not gonna go all Moody over there.

I've been slowly grabbing my movie reviews from the other board and bringing them here, but I might follow your lead and link to RT...I'm just worried that eventually the entire thing will break over there...

I was bumping this thread because there are people who follow our Twitter account that are horror fans.  But, my post above on this matter proved to be justified concern...

Wasn't much of a fan.  First off, I could barely understand what the hell they were saying, both from a volume and heavy accent perspective - felt like it almost needed subtitles.  I also thought a lot of scenes in the first half of the movie really dragged on longer than necessary.  When a film is paced slow AND I can't understand half of what is being said, it's difficult for me to stay engaged.  I also had a hard time buying that they could build all those structures so quickly and expertly.  I thought the goat was pretty lame/funny throughout.  And I didn't care much for the ending.  Other than that though.....

The pacing is a matter of personal preference, so we can agree to disagree there. Same with the Olde English dialects, though I liked that decision due to really selling the rustic atmosphere of Puritan Massachusetts, even if it was hard to make out everything they were saying.

As for the whole thing about building their new home quickly (if thatís what you refer to), the film never specifies the amount of time it took for them to finish building it. It could have been months or so. I would need to clarify that with a rewatch.

I definitely disagree with you about the ending. The last five to ten minutes of the movie was easily the most chilling and tragic sequence of the film.

It's got my favorite ending to any film in the 2010s. Honestly just floored me in every way. Bone chilling stuff.

Since I am big into dialogue and story, if I can't hear or understand what they are saying half the time, I am going to have an issue with that - especially when it's laying the groundwork for the story.  Hard to follow what and why things are happening if you can't understand what they are saying - and this coming from someone who reads and understands Shakespeare pretty easily.

It's not just the home - but there were like 3 buildings that were erected in a very small amount of time (like weeks).  The children look the exact same age, size, everything as they do in the very beginning when they are getting exiled.  And, who is putting up those buildings?  There's one dude and a bunch of kids.  The mother seems to be no real help.  So this one dude just crafted up 3 buildings that quickly?  Sorry - not buying it - unless Satan Goat was helping him.

The ending did nothing for me.  Satan Goat talking in old English was pretty laughable along the lines of The Babadook imo.  Her levitating at the end with the other witches was fine, but nothing I would consider at all chilling or even very noteworthy.  So, she's a witch...great...by that point it was pretty obvious and I didn't really care all that much.
