What makes the perfect horror

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 5, 2011, 2:02 AM


I loooooovvvveeeee talking about movies...so that is what I shall do...

Just watched Paranormal activity 3...my god it was terrible but then again I don't have a clue why I was expecting much .... It was a boring repeat of both the first movies and even tried to entwine the 'scary cult' effect :iconyawnplz:... The only movies that I think pull of the documentary or home-video gone wrong is the remake or original version of rec. and The Blair Witch Project. I am quite nit picky with movies and I don't find many/ if any movies scary but one I remember giving me chills was the movie The Langoliers made from the novel by Steven King, this could have been because I was 8-9 at the time :shrug:

I find movies where the 'antagonist or evil force' stays hidden or is never revealed to be the best since this draws on the fear of the unknown while your cookie cutter Hollywood movies need to have all kinds of gory special effects and scary monsters in an attempt to scare viewers. I was quite the horror junky a while back but I liked the classics like the original Halloween, Nightmare on Elm street, Alien, Friday the 13 etc.

Some of my favourite horror/thriller/zombie movies T^T 28 days later, 28 weeks later, The roaddamn this movie is brilliant, Dawn of the Dead, All the alien movies, Sunshine ( the more psychological thriller type movies that I love to death are The Machinist, American Psycho, A clockwork Orange  ( and Dogville though it was more of a drama)

least favourite...god where do I start...Hostel, All the saw movies, The day after tomorrow, 2012, knowing, The remake of Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm street, ( I quite liked the remake for Friday the 13th... Jason running was epic ) Alien vs Hunter, All the Alien vs Predator movies, Freddy vs Jason, All the scream movies ( number one was kinda ok though ) Though I really do love watching 'bad' horror movies, they are hilarious! I still need to watch the Human Centipede and Teeth XD

Soooo tell me? what is your favourite scary movie and why? and if you can recommend some ones that you think are good, I will be happy *3* Also what in movies scars you? and what makes you :iconfacepalmplz:

Cloverfield and War of the World. I also enjoy My Bloody Valentine and Saw.

What makes a perfect horror movie? Unpredictable scenes. Good actors. Things that are sudden and make you jump. And lots of blood! I also enjoy when everyone dies. Or if not, at least most of them.

What makes me face palm is when these women run for their lives and always seem to fall down. Scenes where you know what's going to happen because you've seen it in so many movies already.

I haven't watched all too many horror movies... Mainly because it's only recently that I've begun to like them. The only movies that have scared me before, though, are more on the psychological side, and less of the gory side. Personally, I find gore hilarious. I mean, some movies just make it look entirely unreasonable and I have to laugh at it! xD ...but I've yet to find a movie that really 'scares' me.

Something realistic is always scarier. But The Omen freaks me, it was the first horror film I saw and I was five at the time. I can remember never sleeping

Hmm... I'm a realy wimp when it comes to horror movies. I never watch them for my own will. My friends love them, so I get dragged to them all the time, though XD I would have to say "Friday the Thirteenth" and "The Excorcist" are the two scariest movies I've seen. Especially "The Excorcist." That thing is really messed up :iconscaredplz:

I looooooooooooove the Machinist. I am a big christian bale fan, but I would have loved it anyways.
I haven't seen a lot of good horror movies. I did see blair witch project, which was all right. My brother has seen human centipede and teeth and described them in great detail to me... seemed pretty hilarious.

I'm not that much of a horror person; I get scared quite easy, but I do enjoy a nice thriller where it keeps the mind guessing, and yes I find not knowing straight away what the 'bad-guy' is straight away always makes it more frightining.
I'm useless when it comes to gory films, or people being tortured it always gets me emotionaly aka I cried when I watched Hostel and didn't even get halfway through XD
I hate zombie films and don't find them interesting :/ the kind of films that scare me are ghost films such as Poltergeist, this maybe because I was young, but I remember it being very scary. The other thing that terrafies me is freaky ass puppets, like ventrilaquist ones, that come to life and kill people *shudder* I watched Dead Silence last night and it freaked me out!!! X/

Teeth is laughable you'll probaly enjoy that, uh, Mirrors is a little freaky. I can't think of any others :S

Asian horror movies! They give me the creeps. You know like the ring, the eye, one missed call, shutter, the grudge... that kind of stuff.
