Just watched the trailer for the re-imagining of "Carrie". This got me thinking. Not sure Moore can pull it off, but want to find out. That led to this idea. Who do you think should be on this list? Naturally, I'm starting off with Piper Laurie in the original 1976 "Carrie". The other two who came immediately to mind? Betsy Palmer as Mrs. Vorhees in the original 1980 "Friday the 13th" and a more obscure one I consider on my list of classics: Shirley Knight as Jerolyn in 1982's "The Sender". Your additions and thoughts?
If you’re too young to remember Psycho…you’ve got a lot to learn!
Frankenstein gets my vote and the bride
As I recall, about 2 weeks ago there was a contest for all of the Friday The 13th films on DVD. I entered the contest every day up until the contest ended. I've never heard anything about it, not even who won the contest. Was it ever even announced who won?
Started REwatching one or two of the films me mate, klownz, has on his horror elimination game. REwatched the unedited THE EXORCIST. STILL a great flick, no big whoop on the parts that were edited originally (the "spider walk" which actually looked rushed and silly) BUT. . . . . . something I DID NOT REMEMBER and just realized. Evidently Dee Snider took the name CAPTAIN HOWDY in his entertaining horror/thriller STRANGELAND from the name Regan gives her "invisible" friend. Who I already knew was the demon PAZUZU (who I did a blog on awhile back, by the same name).
I KNOW I'M GOING TO REGRET SAYING THIS, BEING A BIG FAN OF HORROR AND SCIENCE FICTION. BUT LAST NIGHT MY HUSBAND AND I SAT AND WATCHED "2001" FOR THE FIRST TIME FROM START TO FINISH.
I HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE A COUPLE OF TIMES BUT ALWAYS CAME IN AT THE MIDDLE OR THE BEGINNING OR SOMEWHERE INBETWEEN. AND FOR REASONS I CAN'T EXPLAIN, NEVER SEEN IT THROUGHT TIL THE END.
WELL LAST NIGHT IT WAS ON "SHOWTIME" AND WE DECIDED TO WATCH IT FROM THE BEGINNING.
WOKE UP LAST NIGHT AROUND 2AM. COULDN'T SLEEP. TURNED ON TV AND THERE WAS A MOVIE THAT I HAVE TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT AND HAVN'T SEEN SINCE I WAS A CHILD. FITS RIGHT INTO MY LOVE OF "GHOST" STORIES AND CREEPY MANSIONS (WHEN DONE CORRECTLY) AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM. REMINDED ME ALOT OF "THE HAUNTING" 1960, ONLY A LITTLE MORE VIOLENT. "THE LEGEND OF THE HELL HOUSE" 1973. THANKS
I need some horror movie EDJUMACATION. . . . . . . so I will share in the hopes that someone will get off their butt and share with me. Gots any cool Hollywood trivia to share, about horror or actors in horror ? Share with us and lets all get some cool, fun knowledge about our favorite genre. NOTE, if its ONLY A RUMOR, thats ok, just write RUMOR -, if you dont know if its a fact or not. Come on. . . . . . . . . . . its a boring day, might as help JUMP.
I know some fans do not go back and look at the foundation of horror, others revel in it. Like many things, sometimes the basics are the best. Sometimes you have to have an eye for it, an appreciation of nostalgia, an historians type of understanding of time, place, behavior. There are a lot of treasures in the past. From the first full length horrors like DER GOLEM, NOSFERATU, THE CABINET OF DR.
if some of use here were born thus side of this excellent decade in horror then u missed out on some fookin mad horror movies, i nipped in there just during the seventies so i grew up on the sheet , and mate did it peel back the old eye lids and put a brown mark in me cacks!!!!,,,, the eighties i think was the defining year in popular modern horror history, and carved the way for all the new horrors of today,,, just my opinion,!!,, so without further a do here are just a few flicks, please feel free to add to the list,,,, the best of the eighties!!!!!
