@Emma: Hehe, that would be great. I watch between 3 - 8 DVDs a week now -- both films and documentaries on a wide variety of topics. Consider joining the Atheist Cinema group as well.

Horror movies don't scare me, though as I may have mentioned below in Wrong Turn 2, there were some suspenseful parts towards the end.

I have always felt the music in a movie makes or breaks it. I can't explain how it made me feel to see that scene I mentioned...It was very deep. You should see again. Too bad your not in Nashville I would love to have Horror Movie buddy!

I agree....he should of spared him.

@Emma: I don't recall the music at all, but it has been about 6 months or so since I saw it. Believe it or not, I had never seen the very first Halloween movie until last year. That came out when I was in elementary school, so I didn't get to see it (probably a good thing at the time), and as an adult I just never got around to it until last year when I went through all of them.

The most disturbing part of the Zombie version is when he killed the orderly who had always been so nice to him. I really wanted him to spare that guy!

The music they picked for the scene where he finally goes off on his family ...by Nazareth, Love Hurts was brilliant...it really made you feel his pain and almost side with him. I have not purchased this movie yet, but it is on my list for sure!

Joseph, I never heard of that movie, but I am going to look it up on Netflix and order it. Thanks for the tip! I am always on the look out for a good horror movie! (I just hate watching them alone =P)

@Emma: Oh totally, the Rob Zombie version was the best Halloween ever. It really portrayed Michael as much more human, albeit a really fucked up one, and it was also much better than his first movie, House of 1,000 Corpses.

@Joseph: Thanks for the recommendation. I just placed a request for it from the library.

Hi Dallas, Yeah Halloween scared me more than the Friday series. I recently seen the new Halloween by Rob Zombie and I LOVED it! I had always wondered what made Michael Myers a killer. That movie explained it. Michael is for sure the scarier guy....he is more "realistic" than Jason.

@Emma: I was about 11 or 12 when that movie came out, and it scared the bejeezus out of me. I actually started watching all the Friday the 13th and the Halloween movies this past year in order. I finished the Halloween ones, but never got past the 3rd or 4th F13th movie, for some reason. For some odd reason, I think I like Michael Myers better than Jason.

Oh I am gonna love this group. I myself am a HUGE Friday the 13th fan! Jason.....is my hero!
When my daughter, who is now 16, was around 8 or 9 years old, we had a Friday marathon at home. Took us 1 full week to watch all the movies. We had tons of fun and now she is still a huge horror film fan like her mom =)

The past two weeks I've watched two more movies from the After Dark Horror Fest series: Dark Ride and Penny Dreadful. I saw Reincarnation last year. Both DR and PD were pretty predictable, but of the two PD was better and more suspenseful and twisted.

I also watched Wrong Turn 2: Dead End. I think that was the goriest film I've ever seen yet. They just keep going further and further. Though I think the first Wrong Turn was probably better.

Well, I just watched Dracula: Prince of Darkness this weekend. Haven't seen that since I was a kid. It was rather well done. Just requested the first one in the series Horror of Dracula from the library. These old movies tend to be much better than anyting today, at least when it comes to vampires (Except for Underworld. But that is a different syle of movie.)

Anyone seen the versions with Frank Langella or Jack Palance? To my recollection, both actors did a good job at portraying Dracula, though both were very different.

I also watched the Dracula version with Louis Jourdan. Pretty disappointing version. Jourdan plays a passionless Dracula. The only cool thing was his castle (my dream home).

Also watched The Hills Have Eyes 2, which was fine, but run of the mill. I just requested the original 1977 version of the HHE, which I have never seen for some reason, and The Last House on the Left, which again I've never seen.

Has anyone else seen these?
