what about Blue Velvet?


Is that like National Velvet?

Seriously though, I think both Eraserhead and Lost Highway are more horrific Lynch films.  (I guess Lost Highway isn't really horrific, just creepycool.)

Crap, I just remembered Night of the Comet. It's super cheezy and super bad, but it scared the bejeezus out of me when I was a kid.

Wanna know my really really favorite, see-once-in-your-life-or-live-forever-a-social-pariah movie? It's only vaguely horror...well, depending...

Queerwolf.

By the light of a full moon, he becomes a drag queen, and can only be killed with a silver dil...well, you get the idea.

Oh, I forgot to mention Session 9.  It's... damn, it's good, creepy atmosphere in spades. I was just a tiny bit disappointed in the end, but it was fucked up enough, plus creepy, Creepy, CREEPY enough, to make me forget all that.

I was scared by the Japanese Ring. Didn't see the other.

Blair Witch made me wish for my two hours back. But I was profoundly impressed by the ad campaign.

Same here. I never got to see the Hollywood Ring. But the original Japanese (Ringu) left me truly scared. I was whimpering like a baby after watching it. And I honestly couldn't sleep well for months.

Wait, I changed my mind! I watched this Bush campaign commercial, and the thought of another four years...

<G>

That's not really a movie, though, is it? Ah well.

for those who have seen only Ringu or only The Ring, rest easy: they're pretty much the same. the hollywood version carried over a number of elements almost intact... in fact, tehre were a couple things that seem weird and/or creepy in the hollywood version that are really just cultural artifacts taken from the japanese version.

both were very creepy, and under the right circumstances (alone at night) scary... but I thought of them more as great movies in general than great horror movies.

one thing the hollywood version did better: the mysterious film on the videotape itself. it's EXCEPTIONALLY creepy.

I loved the Grudge even though at the back of my mind there was a small voice repeating "Just kick it's ass Buffy".

Heya,

Quote
Something Wicked This Way Comes is a first runner-up.

Heh, my wife uses clips from that movie when she teaches about Edgar Allen Poe.  She points to motiffs and themes from his writing that show up in the movie.  But anyway, my vote is Dark Horizon.  I was alone the first time I tried to watch it.  Scared the crap outta me.

Peace,
