Best Halloween Movies to rent?

Recommended Posts

Return of the Living Dead (the one with the punk rockers) Great story, funny as hell yet some great chills and excellent soundtrack

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (The remake with Donald Sutherland)

Re-Animator. Do NOT RENT THIS FROM BLOCKBUSTER OR HOLLYWOOD. They cut out the best scene.

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. (NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH) Blockbuster will actually rent this Uncut because it's considered a masterpiece.

The Hidden: Great sci fi cult classic, grabs you from the beginning, great story, lots of action and excellent ending

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (The orignal one) I'm not really one for slasher films but this really is a great Halloween movie flick.

And the Grand-daddy (or mama) of all, The Exorcist.

So anyone else got any to add? I really haven't seen anything too recent except the Blair Witch project which I didn't care for.

Ditto Steve! LOL, couldn't agree more.

I remember when Son of Svenghoulie played It's a long long long Trailer,on his Saturday afternoon horror show cause he said anything with Lucille ball in it is scary.

"Ring" was pretty good for a modern horror flick.

The new theatrical release of "Alien: The Director's Cut" would be a good Hallo-flick, too.

Pet Cemetary...scared the crap outta me when I watched it. (but then I love Stephen King...have read every word he's written)

and on the lighter side...An American Werewolf in London...great flick!!!

OH yeah Pet Cemetary was great. I even liked the second one. I saw Am. WW a dozen times too.

I forgot another good movie. Witchboard, with Tawny Kitain (sp?) That really is a good story with some genuine chills in it. Brrrrr.

I agree on "the Exorcist".

We knew this one guy who saw it 150 times.

I don't know what possessed him....

The Director's Cut is out.

I also think the first "Nightmare on Elm Street" movie

qualifies. Part 3 is not bad as a sequel.

How about "Young Frankenstein"?

"Dracula: Dead and Loving It"?

("Is she dead?" "She is..nosferatu." "She's ITALIAN??")

I never saw the Others and they just showed that the other night. I'll have to catch that.

Exie! I know what you mean about that Spider Walk, I haven't seen that version either but it spooked the hell out of me. Brrrr.

I liked Elmstreet 1,3, and 4. Haven't seen 5 I don't think, but it looked kind of lame.

Sixth sense and the Haunting were good movies too!

Okay, I don't mean to insult anyone, but I have to say this. I read "The Shining" and I LOVED it. When I saw the movie, I wanted to strangle Jack Nicholson because I thought he RUINED that movie. I know, I know, you guys all love him. (at least the men do) but I thought he was the biggest HAM.

And ya know what? Stephen King thought so too!

OH HOW could I forget "The Omen" especially with that great scene with the rottweilers in the graveyard!

The original Haunting was scary; watched it when I was a kid. I saw a movie once named Terror in the crypt. In this one scene this old lady died and they had her body in the coffin on a sheltered stone porch during a thunderstorm. All of a sudden lightning struck and the lady was sitting up pointing at this woman. That scene was as good as in the Shining when the kid turns the corner on the three wheeler and sees those girls "hello Daniel come play with us for ever and ever and ever...".

exie I haven't done a haunted house in AGES! Nobody ever wants to do one with me!!

What is a gravity hill? I never heard of that!

johniam that sounds like a spooky movie. I saw a movie named "Mr. Sardonicus" as a kid and there's a scene of a rotting corpse in a coffin that's haunted me all my life.

I'd love to see that movie again.

I also remember this old movie named "Carnival of Souls" that creeped me out too as a kid.

For a little light Halloween reading, try H.P. Lovecraft... icon_biggrin.gif:D--> "The Thing On The Doorstep" is a really creepy short story, for example. Or "At The Mountains Of Madness"... icon_eek.gif
