The Descent gets me every time; the combination of intense claustrophobia and creepy cave dwelling wall crawling carnivorous monsters; all of this taking place in essentially absolute darkness - I have a hard time dealing with that.

I also have "fond" memories of the first Hellraiser movie. I know nowadays it looks kinda hacky, but I had the first real nightmare I can remember after watching that movie, about Pinhead staring down at me from a hole in the ceiling whilst I lay in bed. It's always made me uncomfortable watching the movie since. I don't like the idea that you can't fight back.

I love low budget horror movies though. Not because they scare me particularly, but just because they're great movies. I'm talking Evil Dead, Phantasm, Blair Witch, The Devils Rejects, Jeepers Creepers and so on. More recently, Bone Tomahawk took me by surprise by how good it was. An old western style horror with a strong cast on a surprisingly low budget. Worth a watch.

Three Old Favorites:
Let's Scare Jessica To Death - atmospheric ghost/vampire/psychological hippies gone bad. Great acting and photography.
The Legend of Hill House - really creepy haunted house.
Lost Boys - just cause I love the 80's music and the Santa Cruz area.

One New(ish) Indie:
Absentia - weird subject matter and believable charaters.

"Split" is pretty pretty​ good if you haven't seen it.

Babbadook, It Follows and the Conjuring were pretty good. Trick r Treat and You're Next are too comedic for my taste. To me, that's when the horror genre lost some of its appeal is when they started trying to mix horror with comedy. To me, the two should never be mixed. Just my opinion.

I enjoyed split. Mostly for the fellows acting and the "surprise at the end"...

Get out was pretty good.
More like an episode of twilight zone or dark mirror than a horror film, but I enjoyed it.

Also another posted mentioned the Decent... that movie was awesome .

I get what your saying, but I feel opposite...most horror is only tolerable to me for the tounge n cheek humor...

The mixing of comedy to me just make sense.

Also I enjoy Rob Zombie original movies.. not his remakes

Yeah, having grown up watching horror movies, I guess I am just a purist when it comes to the horror genre. Horror movies to me are supposed to incite fear or suspense not laughter... That's just me.

Absentia bothered me for days the first time I watched it. For some reason, psychologically, I couldn't let it go. I haven't walked through a pedestrian tunnel since. I've watched it several times, and it always creeps me out. Most definitely good, especially for an inexpensive movie.

For me there's too many to limit it just one, especially since it's my favorite movie genre. While I do like a lot of paranormal ones and B rated type horror(80s/90s preferences), there's a few that stand out even from them. Ones that aren't stereotypical to sub genres(from vampires to werewolves) of the horror genre make for better movies.

Some of the series:

Phantasm series I feel this one always is overlooked though can be regarded as a cult classic.

The Cube series(Sci Fi can be horror to some) People put into a government funded project, a "death machine", try to survive. Pretty sure it's know a bit outside of it's Canadian/Sci-Fi B movie status.

Others;The paranormal sub genre- The Conjuring movies are based on Ed(RIP) and Lorraine Warren, the "pioneering" couple of modern paranormal investigations, who helped to spawn not only the House and Amityville series more modern paranormal horror genre but to the Haunting in Connecticut and others that have come out during the 00s.

I'd say that's a pretty good list. Haven't seen "The Objective, but it doesn't get much better than "The Fourth Kind" and "The Shining" in my opinion.

Favorite among relatively recent releases would be Cabin in the Woods. Good effects and real horror combined with some major belly laughs.

"Am I on speakerphone?" Cracks me up every time.
