    Well, it's not "horror". It's "slasher". lol

    I'm not into horror movies in general. Just shallow slasher films. I think they're almost two separate categories!

    Haha, yeah, but I feel slasher films are a horror sub-category.

    You're missing all the classics -

    !931 Frankensrein
    !941 Wolfman
    1922 Nosferatu
    1931 Dracula
    !960's Hammer Studio remakes of the earlier films

    Just a few examples of my favorite horror films. IMO - slasher films (which definitely have their place) are not horror films, nor a sub-category. They are a category of their own, not unlike thrillers - which are also different from slashers.

    Just one man's opinion..:D;)

    Completely agreed! And those classics are pretty good but IMO they're a little too classic!

    You didn't buy Halloween 3, I'm proud of you! I don't understand why that movie is even part of the series.

    Your collection needs expanded though, only ten movies? lol

    You have limited yourself to just two series of films. Branch out. There is much more to enjoy other then Halloween and Friday the 13th. IMHO, pretty limited and not very imaginative when it comes to movies, not to mention very bland especially anything after Halloween 2 and Friday the 13th 3, maybe 5 but the others blah. :)

    I think those are good movies, but not scary enough for me

    I have the feeling that we are three of the total 9 people who watched that bomb.:(

    Horrible, but not horror.

    OP, what kind of a list is this supposed to be? ;)

    Where is Suspiria, 28 Days Later, Ju-On or Rosemary's Baby?

    That may be, but for a truly evil bottomless pit of horror look no further than Gigli…

    @applefan289:

    If you're into slasher-type horror, I have a handful of recommendations:
    • The Hellraiser series. The first two are the best, and the third is still acceptable. After the fourth, Hellraiser movies went straight to home video, and the overall production quality went downhill.
    • The Re-Animator. Jeffrey Combs is brilliant as Dr. Herbert West in this one.
    • One or two of the A Nightmare On Elm Street series. Not too many, though; the Freddy jokes get old pretty fast.
    • The Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn. My preference is ED2. Even though this is more of a demon-possession movie, there are several good gory bits.

    EDIT: I also second arkitect's recommendation for Suspiria. The razor-wire scene is truly painful to watch.

    They made a Halloween 3??? ;)

    As for everyone hating Waterworld everyone I know LIKES that movie (including myself). I'm not sure why everyone hates it.

    That being said I haven't seen it since it came out so I'll let it live as awesome in my memory ;)

    To the OP: I know you like slashers (I don't but I love horror) so I'll suggest a few you may or may not like:

    Pet Sematary (Its spelled that way)
    Candyman
    Event Horizon
    The Descent (you make like this its gory)
    Borderlands
    Hellraiser series
    Martyrs (never saw it but I heard its insanely gorey)
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    The Audition is pretty violent too but it starts slow. The ending though...omg the ending...

    I agree - the "Halloween" category and the "Friday the 13th" category. :D

    Hey! I own Waterworld on blu-ray. I also have some mint condition, unopened action figures from that movie. :eek: Dare I ask what you thought of the Postman? I liked them both.

    I haven't seen The Postman.

    I speak only for my own, always questionable, taste. ;)

    Enjoy what you enjoy.:D
