My fave horror film has always been Bride of Frankenstein. It's just such a completely subversive film. The anti-Christian images are quite shocking- especially for a Hollywood movie of the 30s. It also has a PERFECT cast- Karloff manages to improve on his groundbreaking performance as the creature from Frankenstein, Colin Clive as the tortured Dr. Frankenstein was at his best, Dwight Frye as the sadistic Karl was all tics and manners. But the two outstanding portrayals are Elsa Lanchester in her dual role as Mary Shelly and the female creature. Her portrayal was rivetting. Ernest Thesiger as Dr. Pretorious was decadance personified. He was the true monster of the piece. This was James Whales crowning achievement. An iconic film that set the bar for years to come

okay, for me it is silence of the lambs. the first scene with in the prison with hannibal is one of the scariest i've ever experienced. just thinking about it, i can see it playing in my head -- the way he stands rigidly and only moves his eyes and how his nostrils flare when he smells her perfume. scary and creepy.

I know it will sound cliche, but the Original Texas Chainsaw Massacre still has the power to shock and horrify me more than any film before or since. The imagery, combined with the surreal soundtrack and grainy film stock make Massacre seem more like a real life snuff film as opposed to a theatrical release. And I'd have to say the second scariest film would have to be Elmo in Grouch Land. That qualifies as a horror flick, right?

Keith, "Elmo in Grouch Land" sounds goddamn terrifying!

I agree with you about "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." That's a horror movie that sticks with you.

Have you seen The Descent? It's about a group of girls who go spelunking and discover a colony of mutated creatures deep in a forgotten cavern. The frightening part isn't the encounter with the creatures, but the claustrophobic scenes when they travel through narrow caves. The movie has a terrible conclusion, but the cave scenes are worth it. I sent you an email with my information as well.

I love horror movies! My favorite is a tie between Silence of the Lambs and Saw (the first one)! I love the horror films that are things that could really happen...that's what makes these two the scariest and most thrilling to me!!

I think my favorite is "The Tingler" - it scared me to death! They even had the monster lose in a movie theater on screen so the real audiance would be fearful the thing was in the theater with them! EWWW!

"A group of teen-agers vacationing in the tropics take a boat out to a seemingly deserted island. They soon find, however, that the island is inhabited by a wealthy recluse. While their host is initially hospitable, he quickly reveals his true purpose: to hunt down and kill each of his visitors, as he has done with everyone unlucky enough to set foot on his island."

This story probably spawned so many horror flicks through out the years...too many to even count. Where I grew up we had many islands not far from our little town and I never once went with my friends exploring due to this movie!

Have not seen "The Tingler" nor "Bloodlust." But they are now on my list.

Hands down: Dawn of the Dead

Classic zombies, it doesnt get much better than that. I Don;t know who decided it was good idea to make zombies super fast and smart, but thats no zombie to me.
