    got to be the fantastic Koroshiya/Ichi The Killer directed by Takeshi Miike. incredably gory and cringe-inducing. how can i forget the original Japanese Ring movie? bloody scary, the only movie that has actually scared me, well as did the sequal.

      I really didn't dig Ichi The Killer.

      As far as Japanese horror/thriller/gore movies go, Dead or Alive is awesome, if not confusing. Battle Royal and Versus are great as well.

      As far as American movies, I'm not really a big horror buff. I do like the corny 80's horror movies like Ghoulies and Critters, mainly because of the cheese factor.

          I'm also not into Horror movies much. I'm more so in to family entertainment stuff. Now "scary" movies, sure, those I don't mind. Horror seems a bit pointless and cheesy, like anything past movie 1 of Halloween. >_>;

          I didn't see many "scary" movies when I was a kid. I stuck to animated stuff. :P

          But since I'm older, the only movie I've seen that's spooked me out to some extent, and still does, is The Exorcist. I know, it's a 70s movie and I wasn't even thought of in the 70s. lol That movie isn't my favorite, just creeps me out, which shows how good it really is. ^_^

          For long time, my favorite "scary" like movie was The Shinning starring Jack Nicholson (sp?). After I saw the movie, I bought the book and read it back when I was in High School and truly enjoyed it.

                The only movies I can remember that actually scared me were Terminator 2, Childs play, and Alien 3. I think they're pretty neat (and a little corny) now, but when I first saw them I was about 6 or 7 and I was pretty freaked out. :shock:

                Although the Blair Witch Project and The Ring were also kinda creepy when I first saw them.

                      Ah, possibly my favorite genre.

                      The Shining (Kubrick version)- This movie is just amazing
                      Hellraiser-Not as intense as the book, but pretty good
                      Evil Dead I & II- Both are classics, I love the bleeding cellar and the living house scene where Ash freaks out and starts laughing
                      Jacob's Ladder-Really awesome stuff, my favorite
                      The Thing-Who is who? Gore and uncertainty? Yes please.
                      Return of the Living Dead-the best opening of any movie ever
                      Vampire Hunter D-not scary either, but the mood and art is awesome

                              Pet Sematary did have the coolest theme song of any horror film....but how can you go wrong with the Ramones?

                                    The Freddy Kruger movies are all simply fantastic.
