Well, I saw the movie a long time ago and I can't really remember very well. I've read the book recently, though. I don't wanna vote cause I can't choose.

@ Punky Dudess
I don't know. Is that Shining the one from Stephen King? And this Jack the Dad and husband?


@ original psycho
If you can't choose, vote for Poltergeist. We got a nice tv series of it (don't now if it's from the movie 'cause I never saw it, but that series is really cool..)

Punky Dudess
02-27-2005, 04:07 AM
yeah, that's it. but there are two different shining movies, i've only seen one of them though.

Yes, that's the one.

I never saw the tv series, but I saw the movies. The first one was cool, but I didn't really like the next two. And never saw the new one, from 2004. My choice narrows down to Nightmare On Elm Street because I'm a big fan of Freddy Krueger and The Shining because I loved the book. Still can't decide :S

@ original psycho
Take Nightmare On Elmstreet 'cause you only really like the first Poltergeist movie. If you like more Elmstreet movies you really should go with that ;)


@ Punky Dudess
Hm.. What's the difference between those movies? Just the actors or also place and something?

original_psycho
02-27-2005, 04:27 AM
I only saw Nightmare On Elm Street 1, 2, a half of 3, 6, 7. And I loved them all. But I voted for The Shining cause the book is amazing and because I can remember scenes from the movie and it was awesome.

I like the blair witch.

The exorcist was just really bad and i didn't find it remotely scary, funny yes, scary no.

exact same thing here.

voted Blair Witch, because I haven't seen the others, or didn't like them much.

I dunno...the Shining is pretty overrated. Yeah, there are some very memorable and creepy parts to it, but the movie as a whole lacks what the story was written about. Jack was supposed to start out as a loving, caring family guy that goes progressively more insane as he stays in the hotel. In the original version with Jack Nicholson, even when he was in his "loving, caring family guy" phase, he was still an obnoxious asshole, so the transition between that and his 'crazy' phase was not that much. Plus the little kid sucked and seemed catatonic the whole time, and the wife was just annoying. The remake was better in some respects because Jack actually started out as just a normal guy before going insane, the kid was normal aside from his little seizure-like visions, and the wife was just a whole lot better. Yeah, the whole shrub animal in the yard thing was corny, but the characters were better all around.

Also, the Blair witch wasn't scary at all to me.

I don't think the Exorcist was BAD so much as that it just didn't age well. It was probably really scary when it came out, but not so much now.

the Brair WitchI definitely wasn't scary. pretty fucking boring actually. I kept wondering what would happen & I was living towards the ending (if that makes sense), but literally -nothing- happened. well, *something*, but you couldn't at all guess what the fuck it is.
I found the sequel to be pretty scary, but ketchup just does that to me.

Guess it would be The Shining, all the others are just very funny

I thought The exorcist (for the time it was made) was very risky and made a big impact on the horror film industry. Making it a true classic regardless if it was scary or not, making it the BETTER horror film as opposed to the scariest...which was the question of this thread.

I was drunk & bored while watching that movie. I started screaming for Ten Things I Hate About You, I seem to remember. there was one horror we watched, that managed to capture me even when drunk, though. something with a sect/cult of students, or something. loved that one. though I'd probably hate it, watching it sober.

goddam, am I -that- slushed, or you really -that- stupid? it's only 18:32 'o clock.

either way, I watched the Exorcist while being drunk. it bored me & frankly I desperately wanted to see Ten Things I Hate About You for the 38947th time. after that we watched The Skulls (I just looked it up), which is about an elite students' sect (kind of like a fraternity, what I am in, so it interested me) & which I liked loads. while being drunk. I bet it's actually really fucking crappy.

You should start putting "" while talking about a movie that could be mistaken for a sentence. "Ten Things I hate about you" wasn't that big of a hit so most don't know the name.

JoY
02-27-2005, 09:40 AM
WHAT THE FLYING FUCK?! Ten Things I Hate About You not such a hit??!
that movie whoops all of your favorites' asses.

Trip Boy
02-27-2005, 09:44 AM
I wasn't talking about favorite. It grossed 38 million. Which is a mediocre hit at best. It might have made back it's profit but by no means was a blockbuster....hence why people wouldn't know about it.

That's actually a half decent pole. I enjoyed the Shining, Blair witch, the Exorcist, and to an extent the Freddy movies. None particulary terrified me, but they were fun to watch and pretty freaky.

the fog!! haha.....that film cracked me up when I saw it, just a bit too dated really but the ending was quite ummm... chilling if I remember rightly. I went for night of the living dead, but would personally take invasion of the bodysnatchers (1979) over that. And watching Aliens when you're six can be pretty scary as well

I voted for Evil Dead! I love the Trilogy, even if it's getting more comedy and less horror from part to part.
Funnily enough, the first part is completely banned in germany! That means, that you aren't allow to posses the movie, even if you're an adult!!! :rolleyes:
Don't know why. The movie really isn't that hard! But it scared me like no other film, as I watched it alone as a child! :o

On my personal best of list, it's closely followed by Nightmare on Elmstreet. Freddy is nearly as cool as Ash! :D
