The Prophecy with Christopher Walken, I like a good religious horror film. The others in the series are OK, but none are as well put together as this one.

Yeah it's a really good film. Is it Viggo Mortenson as Satan?

"All those years you were scared I was under your bed...and I was!"

Blair Witch scared the hell out of me. I can understand why people don't like it, but it's one of those films that's truly unsettling.

The Sixth Sense, I think a lot of the ghost stuff is very well handled, what lets it down is that I twigged the twist about 30 seconds in. Still a good film though.

The Other's is a very good film, and again it's unsettling more than anything else, wonderful atmospheric setting.

Re: 90s horror

Yes, it is Viggo playing Lucifer. He does the part well. Walken is great in all three of the films he was in. But, it's Lucifer saving the day that makes this film for me. My uni had a theater nearby which used to run double features, this would have been a delight to see on their big screen with Kevin Smith's Dogma.

Re: 90s horror

Well, I watched Exorcist III. I was pretty impressed - some of the effects were dated and didn't work, but the movie built tension nicely, and the scene with the nurse was just brilliant. Dourif was just fantastic, as I expected. The exorcism at the end was a bit over the top, but I liked Scott's "I believe" speech.

Still seeking out 90s horror, and recently watched Kyua ("Cure") a weird Japanese horror/thriller by Kioboshi Kurosawa, who later directed the eerie but uneven Pulse. This film was a good deal better, IMO, and features a detective investigating a series of murders where an "X" is carved on the victim's neck. Creepy and very bizarre.

Dark City might be a film to consider. It is not really a horror movie - more a thriller with a blend of science fiction and film noir - but it does have some horror elements.

As I recall, that final exorcism was added by the studio after the fact, because they thought the original finale wasn't flashy enough . . . .
