Re: Favorite "Halloween" movie?

My alltime favorite is Interview With a Vampire, I know Its not really scary , but I love this movie. I would say my other favorites are Seven, Hostel 1&2 , Halloween and the first Saw, I am Legand, The Mist, It, Pet Cemetary and Night of the Living Dead(68).

I much prefer to snuggle up on the couch with the classics---like the original "The Haunting" with Julie Harris. Or maybe a little Hitchcock, with "The Birds."

I might have to put The Haunting on my list.

That's another one I watched earlier in the month. It was even better than I remembered.

I watched The Haunting based on people's recommendations here. What was so great about it? I like old movies but this one didn't do anything for me.
If no one comes from the future to stop you from doing it, then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Halloween is at the top of my list. That one-note score still gives me chills.

Blair Witch Project messed me up good when I saw it in the theatre. On TV, not so much.

The Shining was very creepy.

And for old, perhaps obscure movies, the original French version of Diabolique. (Stay far away from the remake starring Sharon Stone. It sucks.)

Any list which does not include The Creature From the Black Lagoon is, quite simply, incomplete.

Re: Favorite "Halloween" movie?

The only horror movie that ever really, truly scared me was the original Alien. As best as I can remember, it's also the only movie I've ever left before the end.

I grew up watching monster flicks but Alien got to me. I knew that vampires, ghosts, and werewolves were all make-believe, but I believed that were aliens out there somewhere.

I love Halloween, The Exorcist, The Omen, Creepshow, all of Romero's "of the The (Living) Dead"... I could keep typing all night here.

Oh, and add me to the list of fans of Exorcist III. I just hope that one day we get to see the director's cut without the tacked on exorcism.

A fellow Exorcist III fan. We are few and far between.
Not really; it's generally well-regarded.

Exorcist II, on the other hand....

Well you have to admit watching the Exorcist II is a very scary experience although not for the reason the filmmakers intended.

I tend to go with the classics

The Exorcist
Black Sunday
Night of the Living Dead
The Omen
Any of the Hammer Draculas
