Alright. There is an often overlooked HORROR CATEGORY which IS legit. Its the ANIMAL horror category. Be it a bizarrely intelligent animal, an animal of extraodinary WILL, unusual size, MODIFIED/MUTATED, or altered by supernatural means. I know EVERYONE (except maybe the new generation) loves JAWS but that one aside, what are your favorite or MOST favorite ANIMAL HORROR MOVIE. From CUJO to PROPHECY (the mutated bear one not the Angel one) there are MANY.
My first favs happen to be crocodile flicks.
LAKE PLACID has to be the most witty and well written of any animal horror. With ROGUE being the most underrated. ROGUES scenes with the hero in the crocs lair is mesmerizing and frightening unless youre a bullshitter.
Another fav of mine is DEEP BLUE SEA with the genetically engineered big brained, THINKING sharks.
I must admit I also enjoyed ANACONDA, NOOOOOO, not the lame Jennifer Lopez one, THE SEARCH FOR THE BLACK ORCHID which wasnt top notch (the one actress had an exaggerated western accent that she forgot about not even 1/4 of the way through the flick) but I liked it.
What are YOURS ?
Any others you think are underrated ?
