That is a fact.
I am not sure about 'lamberts' lawsuit though.
Edit: Actually I remember that now. it caused
quite a to do later on. And yet,
people were a lot more tolerant back in those
days. For example, one of the entourage tried to grab
my nuts on a flight to Heathrow.
I gave the perv a good elbow, but never sued.

There was a great deal of secrecy regarding
the production of that film.

Don't forget monster squad...
Scary movie was pretty good.

Sean of the dead and army of darkness are the best comedy horror movies...

I was living in Southern California
when "The Exorcist" came out.

A lot of really bad things happened
out there.

I refrain from viewing that movie
to this day.

You'll be fine if you watch the friendly TV dubbed version where she says stuff like Your mother sets clocks in hell!

She tried to sue like 20 years later... LOL

Those were good times, I had heard.

My little brother was in the business and he had stories...

Back to the actual topic, the first Nightmare on Elm street and the first Halloween should both have an honorable mention here... they scared the crap out of me as a teen.

Poltergeist as well...

And I can't believe nobody has put "Psycho" on the list.

I like Constantine. Pretty good horror comic flick.

Poltergeist I witnessed at a "drive in" theater.
It was a great build up of "whats the hell is next fear".
That was a great film.
On the big screen. The midget psychic. How perpendicular.

I do remember Halloween 3 as being a bizarre one
with and unusual soundtrack.

The "Elm Street" series was just prepackaged bullchit
in my opinion.

The first Nightmare on Elm Street was different for the time.

The first Halloween was as well.

Everything after that in both series was absolute crap...

I have to add "Amnyville Horror" to the list though...

Think Horror for this thread,
or at least SciFi Horror.
Not comedy.

Now tell me what comes to your mind.

Hiya JinMi,

Think Horror Classics for this
thread list.

You can do a Comedy horror thread
of your own manana.

I'm a reader.

A voracious reader.

And a Stephen King fan.

The Shining was one of the few movies that surpassed the book.

Jack Nicholsen was the reason for that.

Oddly enough,
being a bookworm myself,
I was thinking of creating a thread of the
literature I read and recommend for this
year. Arrogant of me no?
Maybe I will just keep quiet
and eyes on. Gute Nacht!
Hasta Manana

The one my wife and I watch every year is Sleepy Hollow (1999). It is one of many Tim Burton / Johnny Deep team ups and works exceptionally well. Christina Ricci is also good in this film.

Sleepy Hollow

Rip Van Winkle & The Legend of Sleepy Hollow are two I liked as a kid. I like both of those animated ones from 1970s they'd show on TV around Halloween and Thanksgiving.


This animated TV special from the early 70's presents two of Washington Irving's stories: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle. Both are enjoyable enough particularly if you remember watching this special as a kid. You'll have to pick up a used VHS copy though--it's currently out of print. The Famous Classic Tales series of specials was created by Air Programs International (API) an Australian animation studio. They created a number of animated specials that aired on CBS usually around holidays--this particular show dates from 1971.


Disney did a good animated Sleepy Hollow as well. Any Poe tale is good, from the Vincent Price live action movies to any of the animated versions.

"Rocky Horror Picture Show" and Alice Cooper's "Welcome to My Nightmare" are good as well.

As for Horror, I'm into Hammer style classics. A movie that scared me as a kid was "The Fearless Vampire Killers" (1967) starring and directed by a young Roman Polanski with what I believe was the last appearance of Sharron Tate before the Manson Family murdered her. Fearless Vampire Killers

Cult B movies.
"The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? (1964) Incredibly Strange Creatures

"Freaks" (1932) Freaks
