While I'm not as much of a fanatic as some people, I do enjoy a horror movie once in a while. I tend to go on a horror binge this time of year, for obvious reasons, but I'm at loose ends for what to watch because it's so difficult to find ones that are actually good. I asked for Watch Instantly suggestions on the Netflix thread, but I figured it's worth a discussion here too. Focus: What are your favorite horror movies? Alt Focus: What are your favorite horror sub-genres? (Vampires? Zombies? Ghosts? Slasher flicks?) I'm personally not much of a torture porn fan, or things that are just all about the gore and violence. I prefer the ones that have a bit of intelligence to them, or are more psychologically scary. I'm usually most freaked out by serial killer movies, since they could actually happen. I saw the trailer for Strangers, and I knew I could never watch it because it was about one of my worst fears ever. As for the classic subgenres, though, I'm a zombie kind of girl. I find how the genre has been evolving to be really fascinating, and I love how the modern zombies are always created now by something that seems imminent. For specific movies, I do love 28 Days Later. I can't think of any horror movie that had a better plot. The only other one I'll mention is one that I doubt many people have heard of, but should definitely watch. It's called Severance. It's a British movie, which is weird because I usually don't like British culture but I loved this movie. What was so great about it was that it was a horror-comedy, and the comedy was actually really funny and the horror was actually really terrifying. It's about this group of coworkers from a weapons company going on an office retreat. Of course they get lost and wind up at the wrong cabin, and they start getting picked off one by one by these killers. It was so perfectly done. As soon as I thought I was going to start crying because I was so scared, they'd lighten the mood in just the right way with some joke (usually of the pitch black humor sort). Just trust me on this one, find it somewhere and watch it.
