I was prepared to give it some thought and make up a nice list of excellent horror films, until I read this. It would seem you can't be bothered to give a film the attention it deserves. No offence intended, I know a lot of people are like that. However, as a dedicated cinephile, it's an attitude I will never understand.

When You're right you're right, I SHOULD have said the same thing Whitman. I mean unless you are actually WATCHING the entire thing and paying attention to the screen,the movie looses it's effect.

Re: Horror Recommendations

"Fright Night" is pretty good. So is "Vampire in Brooklyn" with Eddie Murphy in a non-comedy role.

If you're willing to go back to the late 70s-early 80s, I'd add a vote for the original "The Fog", and "The Howling".

Interesting you said "no teen slasher" but you liked "Friday the 13th II"...

He can like Friday the 13th Part II and not be in the mood for a teen slasher; that's not so strange.

I'm looking for a horror movie to watch tonight.

I like:

The Descent
28 Days Later
Cube
Night of the Living Dead
Friday the 13th Part II

I don't want to watch a teen slasher film
nothing would subtitles (nothing against foreign films, I just need to be able to work on homework at the same time)
and preferably something within the last 20 years.

Shoot.
Would you be interasted in something REALLY scary as hell? Try the remake of the FLY. I think that movie is really scary due to the fact he CAN'T run away from the monster because he is the monster. It's both VERY frightning and sad. Oh! and if I wer'e you I would have a BARF bag handy( you'll NEED IT!)
Man good call! I always forget about the Fly but it's truly great horror film, scary and sad all at the same time. It's very uncomfortable watch in places too.
