Oh! The Horror!

Phantasm 1 & 2: Scary mortician. Deadly, hurling spheres. A Barracuda (That would be the car, not the fish.) Formidable dwarf- pions. A shotgun-weilding, juvenile protagonist. A car chase with a hearse. Phantasm 3 was a dud, but 1 set the trend, and 2 carried the day.
An American Werewolf In London: Nice plot and other elements, but the pre-digital sfx during the transformations are especially creepy.
The Thing (remake): This film and 'An American In London' are great sfx masterpieces.
Candyman: Say Candyman three times. Go ahead! I dare ya!
Prophecy: Not 'The Prophecy'. This movie was from the 80's about a mutated bear around a lake in the woods.

The only way I could enjoy them was if they were on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Gotta love horror flicks..................how about Stephen King's "The Stand"...........good one but not scary.

The scariest movie I have ever seen in my life I watched when I was about 10...........it still creeps me out when I watch it......."Salems Lot". Of course..........the books are always better.

Pet Semetary, Rose Red........TX Chainsaw Massacre I (the springoffs are too sappy.)

I love the zombie movies...........Return of the Living Dead I, II, and III.
Dawn of the Dead
Day of the Dead
Night of the Living Dead

Vampires are my thing, though..............give me a good vampire flick any day...........Just waiting for "VanHelsing" to come out on DVD.

Vampires are making a comeback............if you havent seen it yet, watch "Underworld"............you get two for the money......vampires and werewolves.

You couldn't pay me to read or watch most Stephen King. I actually did like "Stand by Me", but somehow I don't think the movie was that much like the book.

This dates me, but my favorite horror movies were Frankenstein (the original), The Mummy, Creature From the Black Lagoon, Dracula (Bela Lugosi was really scary back then) and the more recent Christopher Plummer movies were not too shabby. Is Godzilla considered horror genre?

Stephen King is "the King" when it comes to horror, though.
He goes into such detail in his writing it feels as if you are really there.

Have you read the sequel to The Talisman? It's called "Black House" and is written by both original authors.

He's a hack compared to H.P. Lovecraft. ;)

Out of this list I would have to pick Salems Lot and IT as my favorite..........then they had the Dark Tower series. I read the first one and thats it.
