Its October and Halloween: favorite horror movies?
ME PERSONALLY:

As a Halloween tradition I always watch The Exorcists I-III Halloween night.
*I'd rank them as I>II~= III Now as far as IV goes, and its two versions.... I like them, but they are so different than the "original trilogy"

Friday the 13th:
FAVES: I, II, and VII. Hated III and VIII. IV, V, and VI, aka the Tommy Jarvis trilogy were decently watchable. I did like that rebooted version from a few years ago.

Halloween:
I liked I and II a lot. 3 was just weird... its not BAD, but without Michael Meyers it didn't feel right. 4 & 5 were ok--liked 5 a little more. H20 was ok--a good one to bring back Laure Stroud. TCoMM was ok--interesting backstory additions. Resurrection, eh... I liked how they wanted to do this--maybe not so much the result--its watchable though.

A Nightmare on Elm Street. My faves from the series are 1-3 and New Nightmare. 4,5, and Freddy's Dead are ok.... but the others are much better. I personally thought in that reboot they did a few years ago that Freddy was MUCH meaner and cooler... and the new guy playing him did a good job of making the character his own thing.

Scream. 1 and 2 were legit. 3 was really stretching my threshold for where the franchise was going. I thought 4 was good in kind of inspired in a way.

Others I like/have watched and liked

The Shining
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (Johnny Depp version)
The Haunting
Christine
Maximum Overdrive
The Hand that Rocks the Cradle
Young Frankenstein ( LOL )
Freddy vs. Jason was not bad for what it was.
Silent Hill and its sequel were pretty good IMO.
Saw I and II were ok as far as I recall but I haven't watched any of the ones after that.
The Sixth Sense was good.
Stir of Echoes
Hollowman

Hellraiser(s) -- never got into it I believe I have seen all the originals in the series.
Phantasm (s)-- hated
Poltergeist(s) -- ok, didn't do much for me.


Urban Legends and I Know What You Did Last Summers were decent but I haven't watched them in a LONG time.

The original Halloween will always rank up there for me. I was around 11 when I saw the film and it scared me like a movie never had before. That tune...

Yeah, when I finally watched it, it was very creepy and the theme song really aided in the creepiness. As well as the paranoid doctor about Jason's mental makeup and the fact he broke out of that hospital. What was also creepy is he was always in stalker mode.... like when he rolled up at that school and then when he would roll by the house or hide in open sight from the victims....

If you're counting Science Fiction/Horror then I have to include the original Alien and The Thing (1982). Both of these films blew me away with special effects and a creature that was nothing quite like ever before seen on film. Again, at a younger age seeing these films left a lasting impact on me.

Alien is a strong candidate... it could be horror from a certain point if view.... I loved Alien and Aliens.... sad to see how 3 and 4 kind of tapered off the franchise.

*************

Psycho was pretty solid.
The Birds was pretty damn creepy.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original) wasn't too bad either.

This movie was released on Friday. The movie explores the shower scene in Psycho.

TCM is always great this time of year showing the old black-n-white horror classics. I also like several of the Hammer Productions horror films with Christopher Lee as Dracula and the Mummy.
