Most horror films are just not scary...
Can anyone recommend one that is actually good?

I'm looking for a real scary/creepy/what-the-hell-was-that-noise-in-my-garden-I-hope-it's-just-the-cat sort of film.

That's what I mean about a lot of horrors, they're going more for 'comedy' now...
I want a real-deal horror.

i watched the orginal REC which was Spanish with eng subtitles, was not bad think was a bit better than The Unborn.

I thought REC was much better than Quarantine which is odd 'cos their pretty much identical apart from the language. Thought the unborn was pants.

If I just go for Quarantine then, having not seen REC, I'll hopefully think it's quite good then?

That's on my to-do list as well. :x (although if you stuck out the whole film it can't be that bad surely? I've got the extended directors cut of it, which I assume is the same one you watched?

Gonna have 2 weeks on my own soon, the wife and son are off to Ireland to visit the relatives, so i'm stocking up on movies :thumbsup:

Drag me to hell is a little far fetched and not really scary.

Try these.
Eden Lake
Funny Games U.S.
The Strangers
They should make you think a little.

I've seen The Strangers, will check out the other two though, they look good, ta:thumbsup:

The descent is pretty scary. By the way I think Watchmen is awesome.

massmail666;5861627

cheers, watched eden lake, liked it. getting the others now



If you like Eden Lake, we are on the same wavelength.

You will hate me after seeing Funny Games U.S for disturbing you!

They all sound like Last House On The Left, which was OK but nothing great.

That's why i never put either of the last house on the left films.

Though, of the 2, the original is better.

last house on the left remake is okay,

drag me to hell isn't scary, just jumpy, cos i jump alot lol!

One of the best is HOSTEL,there is also HOSTEL 2 and they are FANTASTIC! I also loved texas chainsaw masacre.Any of them will definitelly not disappoint you

That new Orphan film looks scary...

what about the hills have eyes.. i thought they were good

Banned

Coming Soon
Ju-on (Aka The Grudge)
Tale of Two Sisters
The Phone

I forgot about those 2. Well worth watching again.

Both are along the lines of Wolf Creek which will also put you off backpacking.

Wrong turn and Wrong turn 2 are also worth a mention.

he was looking for scary ones!

surely hostel and the mist aren;t scary!

wolf creek is good, not scary and wrong turn's are just ful of death, no scary imo!
