I was always fond of "Freddy Krueger's" good one liners he used before he finished you off!

Some others that always come to mind:

1) Thirteen Ghosts
2) Sleepy Hollow
3) Friday the 13th
4) Saw

When I was a kid there was a movie about an alien who crash landed near an artic science research station at the northpole. His crash site was eventually discovered by the Air Force and brought to the science station for further evaluation...needless to say he got loose and raised cain among the station populus. This movie scared the "beans" out of me as a kid big time! :eek:

Today I own the DVD version of the movie and play it every Halloween and it still gives me goosebumps when I watch it :eek:

The alien was played by an unknown western 'star to be'...James Arness and the title of the 1953 black & white movie is..."The Thing"...anybody remember that flick?

Lately the first "Alien" movie, which came out back in the early 80's, still creates lots of chills for me.

I tend to lead towards more creepy than gory. I liked the original Saw film, but thought they ended up taking the franchise WAY too far and they ruined it.

Some of my favorites though are:
1. Event Horizon (still can't watch that one alone)
2. Friday the 13th - Only the original, though. I didn't like the rest. Like, Jason in Space...Really?
3. The Ring
4. The Exorcist
5. The Exorcism of Emily Rose

The Exorcism of Emily Rose is my all time fave! Loosely based on a true story and it leaves enough to your imagination to really give you the creeps. I watch it every Halloween. Also liked the Ring movies for their originality.

I know it's more of a thriller then horror, but we like the original "The Hitcher" with Rutger Hauer.

I was 6 years old in 1953 and yes, of course I remember that movie. Scared me too.
Also "The War of the Worlds" based on the Orson Well's famous radio show came out about that same time period. Big tripod looking Martians with long flexible necks - whew, didn't sleep at all the night my dad took me to see that

The Shining . Jack Nicholson makes the original one of the best. Not to mention Stephen King wrote it. :eek:

:eek: I love everything about Halloween. I love horror movies too. What is your favorite horror movie or series of horror movies? (It doesn't have to be a bloodbath to be a great horror movie)

My favorite series is Phantasm. The Phantasm series are original, creepy and with some gore.

Phantasm (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sixth Sense. That had me going the whole way. Besides that House on Haunted Hill - both versions.
