Calling All Recommendations

I have a few horror flicks on order at the library and am just waiting for them to appear. But soon, my fountain of inspiration will begin drying up.

So I ask of thee, loyal readers:

What horror movies should I be ashamed that I haven't yet seen? Which should I watch and review that I haven't already?

Please please please, gimme some suggestions so that I don't get desperate and rent something the likes of the really bad alleged horror movies I occasionally see on the shelves of the library--I mean, could it *possibly* be scary and yet have Lou Diamond Phillips in it? I think not.

(As I'm sure you've noticed, a complete list of the horror movies reviewed here can be found alphabetically in the sidebar... So, bring it!)

Since you ask, I just watched Darkness-The Vampire Version and I recommend it highly. Here's the review of it on my blog:

I remember CAPE FEAR freaking me the hell out, but I was little and I might be wrong.

Also, I am surprised you haven't yet reviewed THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.

And CANDYMAN. Cause I remember laughing at it. But again, I think I was maybe 14.

These are probably shitty recommendations, so use at your own risk. I don't watch many horror movies, yo.

I've not seen the original Cape Fear, though I'd like to.

And BWP I just haven't reviewed b/c I've seen it SOOOOO many fricking times. I definitely dig it, but I've had no interest in rewatching it yet again--I think I overkilled it.

Candyman is a good idea though--I saw it a couple of times but remember very little.

Thank you both for your suggestions...

I must admit that along with Michael Myers, Candyman still freaks me out a bit.

I'd be interested in reading your review of Wes Craven's Last House on the Left. Also, view an Australian movie called The Ugly and an old Romero vampire movie called Martin.

I've heard of the latter two--I just have been unable to track them down at the library. I'll have to work harder on that.

As for Last House on the Left--I have actually seen that before, just prior to starting this blog. That's one of those flicks that is disturbing as shit but I find myself wondering whether or not I'd really consider it horror. I do remember my neighbor pounding on the wall when we were watching it because the volume on my tv in the bedroom couldn't be adjusted and it sounded like someone was getting raped and murdered in my bedroom really really loud. =P

If you haven't, do check out:

Henenlotter: Brain Damage, Frankenhooker, Basket Case.

Friday the 13th parts 1-11.

Wrong Turn, 2001 Maniacs, Frankenfish.

Your excellent review of April Fool's Day reminded me of a couple of other 80s slashers you might want to check out. Both are Canadian horror films: My Bloody Valentine and Happy Birthday to Me.

I also agree with platyjoe on Basket Case and Wrong Turn. I'd also like to know what you thought of Cabin Fever.

I think starting some reviews of original, old BW flicks would be great. The Haunting with Ray Milland still scares the crap out of me. The original Bad Seed. I'll have to think of a few more...

OOh. I actually have seen CABIN FEVER. In the theater too. Heh heh. One of those movies where I think the idea was scarier than the actual movie. And the scene where the chick shaves her flesh off while shaving--I am scarred for life.

I suggest some ye old Hammer Horror films. Like (my favourite) Vampire Circus and Twins of Evil. Very lame, but fun to watch. I also recommend Brotherhood of the Wolf, although I'm not sure if its classified as a horror film. Also, The Fearless Vampire Killers and the Australian film Undead.
