I know Halloween is over, but I know there are horror buffs here.  So what's your favorite type of scary movie?  Slashers like Texas Chainsaw Massacre?  Torture films like Saw?  Alfred Hitchcock style thrillers?  Monster movies?

For me, I dislike the torture films and could take or leave slashers, but I love me a good monster movie.

Monster movies, and specifically classic monster movies from the 1930s. I watched Boris Karloff in The Mummy for Halloween last night. It wasn't really scary at all, but it was still good fun. My favorite classic horror movie is probably Nosferatu. That shit is just scary.

I too don't like torture films, and only occasionally like slashers (there are a few good ones, but most of the rest are pretty blah).

Evil Dead 2 because duh it's Bruce Campbell




Icchi the Killer because only the Japanese could make a movie where a schizophrenic voyeur serial killer who masturbates to domestic violence is only the 3rd or 4th most disturbing character.

The Phantasm series is also great because of how hopeless the protagonists really are.  Everyone who shows up in those movie that isn't a mortician or a midget is completely fucked as soon as they show up on screen.


Hellraiser is pretty good in that sense too, but I really dig the depth and breadth Clive Barker gave that universe.  Some of his characters are VERY disturbing.

Bruce Campbell is pretty awesome.

FYI for old horror fans, the latest guests on Gilbert Gottfried's podcast were the son of Bela Lugosi and the daughter of Boris Karloff.  It's a good episode.

(Not every episode is great.  But more are worth listening to than aren't.)

I like the monster movies - Hellraiser, Phantasm, Re-Animator, Evil Dead more than slasher flicks.

A good ghost story like Ring or Grudge goes over well too.
