The one that gave me nightmares as a kid was Manitou with Tony Curtis.

GOOD choices, old school creepy. Thanks for sharing, Db. I am hoping this topic can be used to share favorite horror films, and possibly educate/get people into new ones. Maybe ones they have never seen. :)

One of my favorite films was The Funhouse, by Tobe Hooper. It's a B-rated Horror flick from 1981 about a group of kids that go into a Carnival Funhouse. And something evil is inside, it's real campy and PERFECT for the early 80s. A cult classic in my opinion.

agys fav horror movies ^_^

hellraiser 1/2 (any thing after ether just destroys lore or is terrabad, and while tehcnickly 3 is a contuation of the original story {albe it very losly} it sucks......)

Alien 1/2 expaily the directors cut of 2, gives a real sense of how staggering the numbers were of alaeins there.
3 is good, but it needs to be the directors cut (that adds 45+ mins!!!!!!!!!). and even then its nto upto task. resurrection is meh, good but meh for an aliens film.

preditor 1/ prediators (that new one)
while 2 is a good movie, its not the horror that the first one is.
idk if many people saw the new prediators or not, but its aculty a very good movie

texas chainsaw massiscor orringinal and the remake.
both the original and the remake are good, R. lee hermy is disitrublgingly real in the remake.

Eden log
its a foreion movie, but its very good. the start scene is a mind cluck, the whoel movie has very cool use with projected imagies from projectors.
the sotry goes a man wakes up in utter darkness, soon a single blinking light begins to shien in the what appers to be a cave with water. naked and alone, afired he makes his way out of the cave to find hes siimingly underground, at the entrance to some high tech sturtcher, greated by an ghostly projection of a woman speaking in a forion launge to him, then fianly his own wlecmoning him to the sturture in fornt of him. from there hes left ot explore the sturture and try to find out who he is and why this massiver place seems adbandon.
one of those "what a twist!" movies. very well done, and a wild ride into where the future could lead us.

untraceable
using the internets ananaiminty, a killer sets up web pages where the more people who view the victum, the faster they die. leading an fbi cyber crimes unit to hunt down the suspect. rather vivpoleint at times, but a very good story and horror flick.

splinter
this is kinda chessy movie. but the premiuse behind it is very soiled and wild. again its chessy at times, but its a cool idea for a horror movie.
a cuple is held hostiage by a criminal robbing a store in the booneys. while soon there after coming underattack form an unknown enemy.

re-anaimator
a movie based off the HP love craft story of the same. a young doctor is fed up with the lose of life he faces. meanwhile a young sciientists is in possession of a closely guarded secret to reanimation. threw shere luck that sicvnsitince becomes a renter of a room where the doctor lives. from there they forum an uneven friendship to test and devlop the reanimator syrime.......only to find it has disturbing results!
theres aculty 3 of these, the 2nd one is not bad but not as good as the first, at lest it still has the roginal cast. the 3rd one is a joke with only the siscicnit. it had a cool idea but then deiced it wanted to be funny instead of scary and fell apart.

noght of the living dead, dawn of the dead, day of the dead.
the 3 gorge a remonion movies following the sequenice of events that lead to the zombies brining about the apaocoliymse.
one of the nice things abvout these mnovies is it doesint try to exsplain away the virues/what ever that made it.

night of the living dead finds the start of the zombies, no one knows where they came form, no one cares as they are cought comptly off guard for such a threat. depding if you see the remake or the orginal black and white, the sotry goes that a woman and her moron bf are visdting a grave out in the country, where the zombies attack, the woman being the only one left alive makes her way to a house in the boonys, where shes teamed up with a few people who do there best to defend the house littrly overnight. showing the realisum of an army of the undead attacking, natrutly the house falls in but a single night. the original black and white movie was very controaversal as it had a black male as the hero of the movie, witch was utterly unheard of for its time.

dawn of the dead, littrly picks up where night of the living dead left off, its the next day of the zombie apapaolocuypse. hell is breaking lose, perticurly in the ghetto. where cops are trying to contain the threat in the densly packed ghetto. natrtily some on both sides of it comptly lose it, some cops simply gunning down blacks where they can, blacks simply gunning down cops where they can, all adding to the zombie count. 2 cops have had enough of it and decied there is no win, they sinply cant win this fight and retreat, evuivntly meeting up with a cuple who togher all 4 of them take over a mall and cklear it of zombies to live in it. this movie shows tho that sadly, its not just zombies you need to becarful of int the zombie apaoclaoyse.

day of the dead, picking up some time after dawn of the dead (at lest some days latter, if not weeks). the world has gone to hell......but where is the military in all this? held up in some secret underground bunker trying to find a cure of coruse! and maybe figure out a way to enslave zombies.......but shhh! anywho, the movie follows a team of ssicicntists and there very unhappy military baby sisters. natrutly the pursist of sicne threw any means, does not sit well with the angry loose cannon cop style mitlary folks. and things fall apart. considering that the movie is cannon however, it reaises a few interesting questions about the zombies them selfs. its worth  watch.

salo, I debated if I should even mention that movie......... its very bad in very bad ways.
not a horro movie in the sense of fake monsters, but real life monsters, naimly Nazis/facsits, and the horrors they can commit. tons of uber violinvce, totorture, rape, other very nasty things. it gets into the more unspoken horrors of the facists that took place ouyt side of gemery, in this case ittily I belive it was. not for the faient of heart as its a nasty horror movie. i regret seeing it.

the crazys (the remake)
a black ops military plane crashes in the water supply of a small town, carrying a bio weapon that losses its self into sad water. turning people into susdistice murders. the mitlary movies in to "clean up" its mess.
rather amazing movie, much better then the original (imo).

daybreakers
in a world where vampires arnt a threat...........as they are the majarty, humanity for what ever reason, has become vampires. its not a evil in the night, its your neibor, your kids, your self. you became a vampire willingly. vampiures are the humans now. the humans who did refuse to turn, are now nothginb but livestock, hunted in the streets. the only problem with this vampiure utopia? it deals with the real issue of what a vampire sosicty would face, a dwindaling supply of human blood. pitting vampire against vampire, reblel humans agiasnt every one. it was a cool idea for a movie and it delviers.

vanishing on 7th street
this is an amazing wild movie..............until about the end..........then it just utterly falls apart.
however until then, its a rather neat movie, the premiuse is that darkness its self, has become a sentuiune bean, and its hungry for humans. tho nto really, as its more like ghost/shadow people have beomce real and hunting humans. if your in the dark your done for. the first attack is with out warning. blitzegreag style. mos of humanity is wiped out in an instance, tho who wernt are a lucky few who for some small mrical have had there light soruce not effected byt the darkness. one has a lighter lighting a cig, another a head lamp, the movie never trys to exspalin how it is the shadow people can muniplolate light........except for these small cases.
natrutly things got ot hell quick as its night time already, and if your left in the dark for any time they take you. the survivuers make there base in a bar with dwindingly resoruces for there generator. as it seems the shadow people grow in power. to the point where days are aculty getting alarming shorter.
again, its a neat movie with a cool preomiues, until the eneding where it falls apart. the schene with the main protagisinet finding a video of his wife in a foreion land (whos a news caster) and sees the moment shes taken and whats taking her is pretty cool. but again the ending sucks and it falls apart fast near the end. might still be worth your time.

devil
5+people (I think it was 5+XD), are stuck in an elevator. soon they start to die, whos to blame? as the cmara goes out as they die. police are stracting there head as they victumes fall one by one, but eviodince starts to suggestion maybe its not even oen of them, but maybe the devil him self. its an m night samamana movie,m so exspect a "what a twsist!". but the movie its self is aculty pretty good.

nightmare on elem street (the original and the remake)
do I need to go into this? we all know who freddy is?
the remake is cool, as it goes a lot deeper into the reason freedy was murdered.

insisidues
on of those movies where its the coolist ever............then utterly falls aparitly compltly at the end. great movie if you can forgive the trearable ending that made zero sense giving the old womans warning to he dad.

the thing (original)
possabl the greatest horror movie ever made. (that even had its own video game made for it that is as far as I know cannon for what happens at the end of the movie).
a team of resurce sicicntits in the artic is awakend form there mission to find that for some reason a forion group of men want to despertaly kill a dog. the dog finds selter in the amaericans and the foreion team raises its guns tot he amaricans, only to be killed by said amaericans. why would they want to kill the dog? what secrets did there base hold? where is the rest of the foreion team?
things go on normaly.........until the dog shows the anaericans............the greatest enemy........is the enemy within.......

the rite
based on a true story (wait what!). a young presit who feels his connection to god has wheined, he question his server to the lord and is sent to study with an old warhero style exrosiste (anthynay Hopkins). the young orest questions the exsistince of the devil, and god him self. only to be told by anthty that just because you dotn belive in the devil, doesint mean he doeisnt belive in you. the young presit feels that the warhero exosorist is simply a palor trick magiction...........but as cases and vision start to pile up, are things really as simple as they seem?

silent hill
while it doeisnt really follow the first game to the letter it should, it does a good job of capturing the horror of the firat game. expcialy the ash children..............I didn't think they could capture there horror...........but by the gods they outdid them selfs with the ash children.
much scaryer if you ever played the first game that the movie is based off of (dispite it having pyrimied head in it, so I guess its based off the first 2 games).
I know people who where ready to walk out of the theater with the ash children scene........also know people who did walk out. I almost walked out >.>, lol I was told I was visibaly shaking when the first shiren sounded when the main charictor went down the stairs........uncontorlbaly so when the up close part came...........(shudders)

I am sure I am forgetting movies, am doen for now >.> da bad memeroies >.>

agy remmbered 2 more! (and i cant sleep any way XD) (ok maybe more then 2)

phantoms (i hope thats the name)
olderish but good.
the premise is 3 forest rangers coem into a town up in (i want to say alaska). from there outpost. apon returning to town they notice every single person is gone. no signs of sturgle, no signs of fire/war/flood or any fowl play. inside homes dinner is set on tables, not even that old. what ever happned happned fast and silently. then a body is found, inside an bakers oven it appers the man was trying to hide form something, but what? night comes, and with it the rangers soon realize they are not alone in the town afterall..........
great horror flick, that trys to exsplain mass dissaparinces in anchant times. well worth a watch.

the pulse (hope thats the rigth name)
tehcinogy is every where, your phones, wifi, cell service, da interwebs. radio waves, ultrisoince waves. but what if someone found a new frecncny, and with it discovred that something was on the other end of it, trying to get threw........
a collage studnet (natruly), descoversa a new frecncancy for a comapny, but soon after starts to go mad, ramabling about insane things, and soon disapaers altogther, son finding out he has hanged him self rather then face what ever it was that drove him mad. his gf (i think it was his gf), trys to find clues to why he would go to such lengths. managing to steal his computer and getting it to a friend who says he was into soem trange stuff, all the while people around th colage begint o disapaer, some simply vanaish, others begin to kill them selfs. black gooey shadows begin to apper in walls where these people once where. the gf soon realaizse these things are all connected. and realaizes things are only going ot get much much worse............
great movie about the possable horrors of technoalgy

the happening
yes its an m night shamamana movie, get over it.
terror is striking amaerica, out of no where and for no aparitn resion, mass susdiceds are taking place. but its soon disvocred that its not apart of a cult, or some mass pact. its somethign sisnsiter. soon the suciaceds start to become more freikant, spreading in rapidness. panic sets in as peo0ple flew and wonder, only to be caought by what ever it is causing it. a man trys to protect his family threw it, joined by other survivoirs (including john legliazaom, whos amazing in this movie). they countuies to flee, but flee form what? whats causing these susicdes, and how is it spreding so fast? whos next!?
its hard to give a disciribition for this movie with out spoilering parts of it. so try to take what i wrote in stride. it was a good horror movie to me ^_^
even tho it got terrable reviews. probly becuseit has a "what a twsit!" liek eveyr single one of his movies have. but it was a good twsit, and distrbuingly belivable.
infact dont ven look it up, just watch it, so you dont get spoilered. since most of the horror comes form the unknown of how ts happening. if you know how to early it takes away form the fear.

the premise is 3 forest rangers coem into a town up in (i want to say alaska). from there outpost. apon returning to town they notice every single person is gone. no signs of sturgle, no signs of fire/war/flood or any fowl play. inside homes dinner is set on tables, not even that old. what ever happned happned fast and silently. then a body is found, inside an bakers oven it appers the man was trying to hide form something, but what? night comes, and with it the rangers soon realize they are not alone in the town afterall..........
great horror flick, that trys to exsplain mass dissaparinces in anchant times. well worth a watch.

the pulse (hope thats the rigth name)
tehcinogy is every where, your phones, wifi, cell service, da interwebs. radio waves, ultrisoince waves. but what if someone found a new frecncny, and with it discovred that something was on the other end of it, trying to get threw........
a collage studnet (natruly), descoversa a new frecncancy for a comapny, but soon after starts to go mad, ramabling about insane things, and soon disapaers altogther, son finding out he has hanged him self rather then face what ever it was that drove him mad. his gf (i think it was his gf), trys to find clues to why he would go to such lengths. managing to steal his computer and getting it to a friend who says he was into soem trange stuff, all the while people around th colage begint o disapaer, some simply vanaish, others begin to kill them selfs. black gooey shadows begin to apper in walls where these people once where. the gf soon realaizse these things are all connected. and realaizes things are only going ot get much much worse............
great movie about the possable horrors of technoalgy

the happening
yes its an m night shamamana movie, get over it.
terror is striking amaerica, out of no where and for no aparitn resion, mass susdiceds are taking place. but its soon disvocred that its not apart of a cult, or some mass pact. its somethign sisnsiter. soon the suciaceds start to become more freikant, spreading in rapidness. panic sets in as peo0ple flew and wonder, only to be caought by what ever it is causing it. a man trys to protect his family threw it, joined by other survivoirs (including john legliazaom, whos amazing in this movie). they countuies to flee, but flee form what? whats causing these susicdes, and how is it spreding so fast? whos next!?
its hard to give a disciribition for this movie with out spoilering parts of it. so try to take what i wrote in stride. it was a good horror movie to me ^_^
even tho it got terrable reviews. probly becuseit has a "what a twsit!" liek eveyr single one of his movies have. but it was a good twsit, and distrbuingly belivable.
infact dont ven look it up, just watch it, so you dont get spoilered. since most of the horror comes form the unknown of how ts happening. if you know how to early it takes away form the fear.
The Happening was pretty good. I liked the premise and what happened, basically why it was happening. Definitely different!

some more agy remembered ^_^

Event horizon
imo, one of the best horror movies ever made
the premiues of the movie is in the furte man has invented the abilty to use FTL travel. using a black hole. however the first ship (the event horizon) disappeared, all crew on board, just simply vaniashed. some years pass, and all of a sudden it shows back up. no signs of life, no crew on board. all attempts to hail it have failed. the man who creatied the drive for it and a rescue crew are sent to inveitiagate. finding no signs of life, no trace of the crew at all. but as they exsplore more of the ship, it becomes clear they are not alone.........
the movie dives deep into the horrors of space travel, expcaily FTL and black holes and what lurks beyond them.

the ninth gate
its a slow horror movie, gona get that out there now.
the movie follows jhony deep as the main carcitor, a reporter who (fopr honsitly I forget the reason, its been a long time). is following the trail of susodily the book to hell. ie the way to get unimaginable power therew the devil. going around a lot of places over Europe, johny finds the book may be true, but its pages (9 in total) are scared around, and theres fakes as well. and only the real 9 pages will grant the power.
like I said its a slow movie, but its a good one. it takes a while to build up but it does deliver ^_^

house on haunted hill (1999 version)
saw this one I was younger (agy had a funny early childhood) scared the heck out of me. idk how scary it would be now.
anywho, the premisue is a group of pepeople will be payed 1 mil if they can stay the night in an insans assylam that had some bad bad bad stuff go down in it. only the guests soon find out there are not alone. hard to exsplain things with out giving away story. its a neat horro movie tho with some crazy effects.

sleepy hallow
johnny deep stars in this neat twist on the sleepy hallow story. lot of neat twists and turns and great acting by jhony, fun horror movie to watch ^_^

Virus
a ship crew is forced to dock at a oil rig (I think it was an oil rig, its been forever). and ride out a storm, there they are faced with a threat form outer space. its aculty a neat movie dispite my bad discruption. about a computer viures form space is convivced that humans are a virus and need ot be eradicated. give it a shot ^_^

HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL! The 1999 re-make scared me to death! I loved it, and most claim it's not that great. I am sorry, but it's terrifying and the story behind it even more so. To this day, I believe it's one of the scariest films ever. But, that's just me. And the rest of those I love as well! Event Horizon was a good one to, very creepy once it got into the storyline.

I saw it right around the same exact time, about 9-10 years old RIGHT WHEN it came out. lol I had to watch Ghostbusters UNTIL I fell asleep just to fall asleep after watching it. I essentially had to watch something funny for hours on end, it scared me to death. lol Good effects though like you said, very gross and elegantly done. William Castle would've been proud lol

it was one of the best shows ever made. it even had a full epsioed devoted to the dark lord him self cuthulu ^_^, called "the prank call of cuthulu" XD ^_^

the show was a riot. the dad was always cool with the nuttyness that went on, and or didnt even notice it. the mom noticed eveyr thing and freaked out consitnly XD
mandy was a nut, billy was a nut. erwin was the token black guy (that they made no effert to hide and aculty ran with it). grim had a heavy jamacian accent XD

sometimes it would have dracula who was an old old black man who was as nutty as could be (one epsioed dracula steals a dune rider form star wars and takes grim to go get an early bird spaialce XD).

one epsioed they ddint even have billy mandy or grim in it, it was 3 supporting carictors including the bear generals 2nd in comand battling the forces of evil XD!!!!

athroditie makes tons of aparianaces and always causes truble for grim. forget when it happend but she lost a tooth becuse of grim and shes always missing the tooth after XD!!!

show was just insane, shame they cancaled it someday. tho they did make a cuple tv movies after the show was done.

if i am not mistake, i dont knwo if it was the beggining or if it happend half way threw, but there was a "grim and evil show" where it was half grim adventures of billy and mandy, and the other one where it had a bear with a human brain on its head, a lady mad scicntince, and soem general bad guy all 3 of them cuasing nuttyness too in the same world as grim and them. great stuff ^_^

Madhouse is a 1974 British horror film directed by Jim Clark. Price plays Paul Toombes, a horror actor whose trademark role is 'Dr. Death'. Years after a scandal ends his film career (his fiancee is murdered and Toombes ends up in an asylum, suspected but never convicted of the crime), the embittered Toombes revives his skull-faced character for a television series. Cast and crew begin to die in ways that suggest scenes from Toombes's films.

Tusk(because walruses are the superior being and also my favorite animal)
Dagon( I'm a huge Lovecraft fan)

love the original alien film, expaicly if you get your hands on the directors cut (as its truer to hr gigers alien)

dagon was really good too. closist to what hp lovecraft invivisioned that I have seen.
reanimaitor is great too if you love lovecraft.

theres another hp love craft move I saw parts of, it had who I emagined was suspied to be hp lovecraft readying an achant text is some sort of library and it was a bunch of short storys that he was ready. as he read more a door opened more to a gateway into the elder gods world. there was some monks trying to stop him too.
some of the short sotrys where a guy trying to get his dead wife back to life (looked like colonial era) but a big beholder like demon gets summioned instead.
the other story was 2 cops (in what looked leik the 80s) a white female who was pregent (but hiding it form the force of coruse, agy ryme). and her black (I think he was black) parent chasing a suspect into a back ally place and it turns up its aculty some kinda demon things that can project your happyist thoughts...........as they suck the marrow out of your bones.

iany way they where wsome and I think there might have been more.

only problem............I don't know the name of the movie. if any one does, help a sister out yo! ^_^

Title: Re: Favorite Horror Films!
Post by: Jack Of Shades on October 08, 2014, 06:58:30 PM
@ Agy: Any of these look familiar, besides the obvious? :)

This list includes movies that are adaptations of stories written by Lovecraft. 

Bride of Re-Animator (1990)
Both Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott return in this mediocre sequel to Re-Animator, which actually owes more to The Bride of Frankenstein. However, some scenes, including the final one in the tomb of the Averills, were directly inspired by the original story, “Herbert West—Reanimator”.

The Crimson Cult (1968)
Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee, and Barbara Steele star in this film which is ostensibly based on Lovecraft’s “The Dreams in the Witch House”. This is one of Karloff’s last films (if not the last).

The presence of Wil Wheaton, Claude Akins, and John Schneider don’t bode well for this dull adaptation of Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space”. Inexplicably, the location of the story was moved to Tellico Plains, Tennesee, and the family name was changed to Hayes.

Dagon (2001)
Based more on “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” than on “Dagon”, Ezra Godden plays the protagonist and Francisco Rabal plays a difficult-to-understand version of Zadok Allen. The setting is terrific and the film is better looking than earlier Gordon productions, but the chase scene from “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” is strung out for much of the film yet lacks the manic energy of other Gordon films.

Die, Monster, Die! (1965)
Also known as Monster of Terror, this film takes Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space” and emphasizes the science-fiction aspects rather than the horror. Boris Karloff stars as scientist Nahum Witley, as opposed to farmer Nahum Gardner. This film is another example of a classic horror actor crippled by an awful script.

The Dunwich Horror (1970)
Many of the elements of Lovecraft’s “The Dunwich Horror” were kept intact, including several of the character names: Wilbur Whateley (Dean Stockwell), Dr. Henry Armitage (Ed Begley, Sr.), Lavinia Whateley (Joanne Moore Jordan), and Old Wizard Whateley (Sam Jaffe). However, the addition of a female lead (Sandra Dee) and psychedelic special effects end up making this film pretty average.

From Beyond (1986)
Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton of Re-Animator fame return in another Brian Yuzna and Stuart Gordon horror-fest. The events of Lovecraft’s short story “From Beyond” effectively take place before the opening credits roll, thus this fairly entertaining film could be considered a sequel to the story.

The Haunted Palace (1963)
For marketing reasons, director Roger Corman named this film after an Edgar Allan Poe poem, but it is actually based on Lovecraft’s The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. Vincent Price stars as Charles Dexter Ward and Lon Chaney, Jr. stars as Simon Orne, but even these veteran actors can’t raise this film very far above average. Instead of Price acting in a dual role as both Ward and Joseph Curwen, the spirit of Curwen possesses him.

Lurking Fear (1994)
One of the poorer Lovecraft adaptations yet, this film is only loosely based on Lovecraft’s “The Lurking Fear”. Other than the town of Lefferts Corners and the presence of the degenerate Martense family, this film bears little resemblance to the original story. Even the manic performance of Lovecraftian actor Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator and From Beyond) and Hellraiser’s Ashley Lauren[ce] can’t save this terrible film.

Necronomicon (1993)
An anthology of three tales, with an unintentionally laughable wrapper story called “The Library” featuring Jeffrey Combs as Lovecraft himself. Combs obtains a copy of the Necronomicon and is apparently reading these three tales from it! The first segment, “The Drowned,” is based very loosely on “The Rats in the Walls” and has a few genuinely atmospheric moments – but no rats! The second segment, “The Cold,” is based a little more solidly on “Cool Air” and stars David Warner, but a female protagonist was added. The last segment, “Whispers,” was supposedly based on “The Whisperer in Darkness”, but apparently underwent so much revision that the resemblance was lost. Altogether, a very average film.

Re-Animator (1985)
Despite taking enormous liberties with Lovecraft’s “Herbert West—Reanimator”, this is one of the most entertaining and financially successful of Lovecraft films. Produced by Brian Yuzna and directed by Stuart Gordon, this scary and funny film stars Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West, Bruce Abbott as Dan Cain, Barbara Crampton as Megan Halsey, and David Gale as Doctor Carl Hill.

The Resurrected (1992)
Based on Lovecraft’s The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, this film is perhaps the most faithful Lovecraft film to date. Directed by Dan O’Bannon (who wrote the script for Alien) and starring Chris Sarandon (The Sentinel and The Princess Bride) as Charles Dexter Ward and Joseph Curwen. The scenes in the tunnels beneath Curwen’s house are especially impressive.

The Unnamable (1988)
Little more than a monster-kills-teenagers-having-sex movie, this film does manage to incorporate a few Lovecraftian references and the Necronomicon, although its relationship to Lovecraft’s “The Unnamable” are minimal.

The Unnamable II: The Statement of Randolph Carter (1993)
Taking place immediately after the events of The Unnamable, this sequel incorporates more elements of its namesake, “The Statement of Randolph Carter” than its forerunner. Still, these elements do not make up the foremost portion of the film, and the presences of John Rhys-Davies and David Warner don’t make this any better than an above-average film.

@ Mysterio: I plan on watching all the Halloweens, as it's traditional, Hallows End, House Of 1000 Corpses, pretty much my collection is way too big to name. lol How about you?

@ Agy: Any of these look familiar, besides the obvious? :)

This list includes movies that are adaptations of stories written by Lovecraft. 

Bride of Re-Animator (1990)
Both Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott return in this mediocre sequel to Re-Animator, which actually owes more to The Bride of Frankenstein. However, some scenes, including the final one in the tomb of the Averills, were directly inspired by the original story, “Herbert West—Reanimator”.

The Crimson Cult (1968)
Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee, and Barbara Steele star in this film which is ostensibly based on Lovecraft’s “The Dreams in the Witch House”. This is one of Karloff’s last films (if not the last).

The presence of Wil Wheaton, Claude Akins, and John Schneider don’t bode well for this dull adaptation of Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space”. Inexplicably, the location of the story was moved to Tellico Plains, Tennesee, and the family name was changed to Hayes.

Dagon (2001)
Based more on “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” than on “Dagon”, Ezra Godden plays the protagonist and Francisco Rabal plays a difficult-to-understand version of Zadok Allen. The setting is terrific and the film is better looking than earlier Gordon productions, but the chase scene from “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” is strung out for much of the film yet lacks the manic energy of other Gordon films.

Die, Monster, Die! (1965)
Also known as Monster of Terror, this film takes Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space” and emphasizes the science-fiction aspects rather than the horror. Boris Karloff stars as scientist Nahum Witley, as opposed to farmer Nahum Gardner. This film is another example of a classic horror actor crippled by an awful script.

The Dunwich Horror (1970)
Many of the elements of Lovecraft’s “The Dunwich Horror” were kept intact, including several of the character names: Wilbur Whateley (Dean Stockwell), Dr. Henry Armitage (Ed Begley, Sr.), Lavinia Whateley (Joanne Moore Jordan), and Old Wizard Whateley (Sam Jaffe). However, the addition of a female lead (Sandra Dee) and psychedelic special effects end up making this film pretty average.

From Beyond (1986)
Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton of Re-Animator fame return in another Brian Yuzna and Stuart Gordon horror-fest. The events of Lovecraft’s short story “From Beyond” effectively take place before the opening credits roll, thus this fairly entertaining film could be considered a sequel to the story.

The Haunted Palace (1963)
For marketing reasons, director Roger Corman named this film after an Edgar Allan Poe poem, but it is actually based on Lovecraft’s The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. Vincent Price stars as Charles Dexter Ward and Lon Chaney, Jr. stars as Simon Orne, but even these veteran actors can’t raise this film very far above average. Instead of Price acting in a dual role as both Ward and Joseph Curwen, the spirit of Curwen possesses him.

Lurking Fear (1994)
One of the poorer Lovecraft adaptations yet, this film is only loosely based on Lovecraft’s “The Lurking Fear”. Other than the town of Lefferts Corners and the presence of the degenerate Martense family, this film bears little resemblance to the original story. Even the manic performance of Lovecraftian actor Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator and From Beyond) and Hellraiser’s Ashley Lauren[ce] can’t save this terrible film.

Necronomicon (1993)
An anthology of three tales, with an unintentionally laughable wrapper story called “The Library” featuring Jeffrey Combs as Lovecraft himself. Combs obtains a copy of the Necronomicon and is apparently reading these three tales from it! The first segment, “The Drowned,” is based very loosely on “The Rats in the Walls” and has a few genuinely atmospheric moments – but no rats! The second segment, “The Cold,” is based a little more solidly on “Cool Air” and stars David Warner, but a female protagonist was added. The last segment, “Whispers,” was supposedly based on “The Whisperer in Darkness”, but apparently underwent so much revision that the resemblance was lost. Altogether, a very average film.

Re-Animator (1985)
Despite taking enormous liberties with Lovecraft’s “Herbert West—Reanimator”, this is one of the most entertaining and financially successful of Lovecraft films. Produced by Brian Yuzna and directed by Stuart Gordon, this scary and funny film stars Jeffrey Combs as Herbert West, Bruce Abbott as Dan Cain, Barbara Crampton as Megan Halsey, and David Gale as Doctor Carl Hill.

The Resurrected (1992)
Based on Lovecraft’s The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, this film is perhaps the most faithful Lovecraft film to date. Directed by Dan O’Bannon (who wrote the script for Alien) and starring Chris Sarandon (The Sentinel and The Princess Bride) as Charles Dexter Ward and Joseph Curwen. The scenes in the tunnels beneath Curwen’s house are especially impressive.

The Unnamable (1988)
Little more than a monster-kills-teenagers-having-sex movie, this film does manage to incorporate a few Lovecraftian references and the Necronomicon, although its relationship to Lovecraft’s “The Unnamable” are minimal.

The Unnamable II: The Statement of Randolph Carter (1993)
Taking place immediately after the events of The Unnamable, this sequel incorporates more elements of its namesake, “The Statement of Randolph Carter” than its forerunner. Still, these elements do not make up the foremost portion of the film, and the presences of John Rhys-Davies and David Warner don’t make this any better than an above-average film.

@ Mysterio: I plan on watching all the Halloweens, as it's traditional, Hallows End, House Of 1000 Corpses, pretty much my collection is way too big to name. lol How about you?
Other Lovecraftians play this game? I love this community, also have you Lord of Tears it's very lovecraftish.

Today's Classic Horror Film Is: The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari

(http://doublefeatureshow.com/images/covers/the-cabinet-of-dr-caligari.jpg)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAtpxqajFak

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (German: Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari) is a 1920 German silent horror film directed by Robert Wiene from a screenplay by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer. It is one of the most influential films of the German Expressionist movement and, according to Roger Ebert, is "the first true horror film".

The film used stylized sets, with abstract, jagged buildings painted on canvas backdrops and flats. To add to this strange style, the actors used an unrealistic technique that exhibited "jerky" and dance-like movements. This film is cited as having introduced the twist ending in cinema.

A must see for TRUE horror fans, it marks the beginning of real horror on the big screen.

(http://www.thrillandkill.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Halloween-2.jpg)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLEk6hES03Q

Halloween is a 1978 American independent slasher horror film directed and scored by John Carpenter, co-written with producer Debra Hill, and starring Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis in her film debut. The film was the first installment in what became the Halloween franchise. The plot is set in the fictional Midwestern town of Haddonfield, Illinois. On Halloween night in 1963, a six-year-old Michael Myers murders his older sister by stabbing her with a kitchen knife. Fifteen years later, he escapes from a psychiatric hospital, returns home, and stalks teenager Laurie Strode and her friends. Michael's psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis suspects Michael's intentions, and follows him to Haddonfield to try to prevent him from killing.

Today's 1990's cult classic Horror Film Is: Scream (1996)

(http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog_post_349_width/2013/04/scream.jpg)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BM39LABHEDc

Scream is a 1996 American slasher film written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven. The film stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Drew Barrymore, and David Arquette. Released on December 20, 1996, Scream follows the character of Sidney Prescott (Campbell), a high school student in the fictional town of Woodsboro, who becomes the target of a mysterious killer known as Ghostface. Other main characters include Sidney's best friend Tatum Riley (Rose McGowan), Sidney's boyfriend Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich), Billy's best friend Stu Macher (Matthew Lillard), film geek Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy), deputy sheriff Dewey Riley (Arquette), and news reporter Gale Weathers (Cox). The film combined comedy and "whodunit" mystery with the violence of the slasher genre to satirize the cliché of the horror genre popularized in films such as Halloween and Friday the 13th. The film was considered unique at the time of its release for featuring characters who were aware of real world horror films and openly discussed the cliché that Scream attempted to subvert.

Today's Legendary Silent Era Horror Film Is: Nosferatu (1922)

Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (translated as Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror; or simply Nosferatu) is a 1922 German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok.

The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain the rights to the novel (for instance, "vampire" became "Nosferatu" and "Count Dracula" became "Count Orlok"). Stoker's heirs sued over the adaptation, and a court ruling ordered that all copies of the film be destroyed. However, one print of Nosferatu survived, and the film came to be regarded as an influential masterpiece of cinema.

In honor of Friday the 13th, I give you...

Today's Slasher Horror Film Is: Friday the 13th Part II (1981)

(http://bandbent.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/friday-the-13th-part-2.jpg)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rShnuCLtc0Q

Friday the 13th Part 2 (also known as Friday the 13th Part II) is a 1981 American horror film directed by Steve Miner. It is a direct sequel to Friday the 13th, picking up five years after that film's conclusion, where a new murderer stalks camp counselors at a nearby training camp. The film marks the first time Jason Voorhees is the antagonist (his mother was the killer in the previous film).

Stylistically, Friday the 13th Part 2 reproduces certain key elements that made the original Friday the 13th a sleeper hit in 1980, such as first-person camera perspectives, gory stalk-and-slash scenes, and campground settings. Although it did not reach the original's box office success, the sequel was a financial success, grossing over $21.7 million in the United States on a budget of just $1.05 million.

Originally, Friday the 13th Part 2 was not intended to be a direct sequel to the 1980 original but rather part of an anthology series of films based around the Friday the 13th superstition, but after the popularity of the original film's surprise ending to feature Jason Voorhees attacking the heroine, the filmmakers decided to bring back Jason and the mythology surrounding Camp Crystal Lake, a trend which would be repeated for the rest of the series.

Frankenhooker is a 1990 American black comedy horror directed by Frank Henenlotter. Very loosely inspired by Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein, the film stars James Lorinz as medical school drop-out Jeffrey Franken and former Penthouse Pet Patty Mullen as the title character (who wears a fatsuit in the beginning of the film).

Today's Cheesy Old School B Horror Film Is: Plan 9 From Outer Space(1959)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/bf/Plan_9_Alternative_poster.jpg/220px-Plan_9_Alternative_poster.jpg)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2ukRYsYPmo

Plan 9 from Outer Space (originally titled Grave Robbers from Outer Space, or simply known as Plan 9) is a 1959 American black-and-white science fiction thriller film released by Distributors Corporation of America (as Valiant Pictures). The film was written, produced, directed, and edited by Edward D. Wood, Jr. and stars Gregory Walcott, Mona McKinnon, Tor Johnson, Vampira, and posthumously bills Bela Lugosi as a star (silent footage of the actor had actually been shot by Wood for another, unfinished film just prior to Lugosi's death in 1956).

The film tells the story of extraterrestrials who are seeking to stop humanity from creating a doomsday weapon that could destroy the universe. The aliens implement "Plan 9", a scheme to resurrect the Earth's dead. (Modern audiences would call these undead creatures zombies, but Plan 9 refers to them as "ghouls".) By causing chaos, the aliens hope the crisis will force humanity to listen to them. If not, the aliens will then destroy mankind with armies of the undead.

Plan 9 from Outer Space played on television in relative obscurity until 1980, when authors Michael and Harry Medved dubbed the film "worst movie ever made". Both Wood and his film were posthumously awarded two of Medveds' Golden Turkey Awards, as the Worst Director Ever and Worst Film, respectively.

Today's Campy 80s Slasher Horror Film Is: Friday The 13th Part III(1982)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/44/Friday3.jpg)

https://youtu.be/if_LVGLMMws

Friday the 13th Part III (also known as Friday the 13th Part 3) is a 1982 slasher film and the third entry in the Friday the 13th franchise, directed by Steve Miner. Originally released in 3-D, it is the first film to feature antagonist Jason Voorhees wearing his signature hockey mask, which has become a trademark of both the character and franchise, as well an icon in American cinema and horror films in general. As a direct sequel to Friday the 13th (1980) and Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), the film follows a group of co-eds on vacation at a house on Crystal Lake, where Jason Voorhees has taken refuge.

When first released, the film was intended to end the series as a trilogy. However unlike its sequel Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) and the later film, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993), Friday the 13th Part III did not include a moniker in its title to indicate it as such.

Despite poor reviews from critics, Friday the 13th Part III was released to commercial financial success, bringing in over $36.6 million at the domestic box office on a budget of $2.5 million. The film was the first to remove E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial (1982) from the number-one box office spot and became the second highest-grossing horror film of 1982, behind Poltergeist. The film has also obtained a cult following within recent years,[citation needed] with many fans celebrating the introduction of the hockey mask, the over-the-top characters, use of 3-D, and disco soundtrack. Jason's look in this film, which varies greatly from its predecessor, became the look to which the character was modeled after in later incarnations.

Today's Remake Horror Film Is: Carnival Of Souls(1998)

https://youtu.be/-f9tvtWYodQ

Carnival of Souls (also billed as Wes Craven Presents 'Carnival of Souls') is a 1998 horror film, a remake of Herk Harvey's 1962 horror film of the same name, although it has very little in common with the story of the original. It stars Bobbie Phillips and comedian Larry Miller, and was directed by Adam Grossman and Ian Kessner. It was executive produced by Wes Craven. The tagline for the film was: "Enter at your own risk! Enter if you dare."


I do miss Trimark as a company, they released some memorable flicks back in the day.

Today's Thriller Horror Film Is: The Shining(1980)

(http://jabrassknowsmovies.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/the-shining.jpg?w=799)

https://youtu.be/5Cb3ik6zP2I

The Shining is a 1980 British-American psychological horror film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, co-written with novelist Diane Johnson, and starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, and Scatman Crothers. The film is based on Stephen King's 1977 novel of the same name, although the film and novel differ in significant ways.

In the film, Jack Torrance, a writer and recovering alcoholic, takes a job as an off-season caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel. His young son possesses psychic abilities and is able to see things from the past and future, such as the ghosts who inhabit the hotel. Some time after settling in, the family is trapped in the hotel by a snowstorm, and Jack gradually becomes influenced by a supernatural presence, descends into madness, and ultimately attempts to murder his wife and son.

Today's Alfred Hitchc o c k Horror Film Is: Psycho(1960)

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9OVgBz48OCM/ULYtOnBJzAI/AAAAAAAABc0/UzjKOHJbJzg/s1600/Psyhco+1960+poster.jpg#Psycho%201960%20520x770)

https://youtu.be/7-ZQJRkyv_Q

Psycho is a 1960 American psychological thriller-horror film directed by Alfred HitchMcRib starring Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, and Janet Leigh. The screenplay is by Joseph Stefano, based on the 1959 novel of the same name by Robert Bloch loosely inspired by the crimes of Wisconsin murderer and grave robber Ed Gein.[4]

The film centers on the encounter between a secretary, Marion Crane (Leigh), who ends up at a secluded motel after embezzling money from her employer, and the motel's disturbed owner-manager, Norman Bates (Perkins), and its aftermath.[5] When originally made, the film was seen as a departure from HitchMcRib's previous film North by Northwest, having been filmed on a low budget, with a television crew and in black and white. Psycho initially received mixed reviews, but outstanding box office returns prompted reconsideration which led to overwhelming critical acclaim and four Academy Award nominations, including Best Supporting Actress for Leigh and Best Director for HitchMcRib.

It is now considered one of HitchMcRib's best films[6] and praised as a work of cinematic art by international film critics and film scholars. Ranked among the greatest films of all time, it set a new level of acceptability for violence, deviant behavior and sexuality in American films,[7] and is widely considered to be the earliest example of the slasher film genre. After HitchMcRib's death in 1980, Universal Studios began producing follow-ups: three sequels, a remake, a television film spin-off, and a TV series.

In 1992, the US Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

Not usually a horror fan, but this movie does seem a bit original and interesting for it's whole idea. Though it does look like it's just going to go for the easy way out and use jump scares throughout it.

Today's 2000s B-Rated Film Is: Scare Zone (2009)

https://youtu.be/kaWBdNKsIqk

Scare Zone is OLIVER's pride and joy. Sure, it's just another strip-mall Halloween Horror House, but as always, he's put his heart and soul into it. The attraction is open for three nights only, and Oliver has brought back his old staff, including ex-con Spider, eager bride-to-be Summer, and the enigmatic Goth princess Claire. A bunch of newbies are also on board, including earnest young Darryl, who immediately finds himself bewitched by the creepy Claire. The dysfunctional 'scream team' learns to work together while someone or some-thing is out to make the horror REAL.

I recommend this movie to any B-Rated horror movie buff, and gore hounds! You will especially love the Lye Vat scene. ;) This movie is currently on Hulu under the Horror and Suspense Genre. I will be doing this from now on for any horror fans that really love this topic. I'll let them know where it can be found if they are interested in watching.
