I fully realise how good that film actually is (to other people who can appreciate this foul subgenre of horror), but I cannot stand watching films where teenagers unwittingly tumble into the lair of some blood thirsty maniac, only to have the third act of the film filled with moans of agony, screams for help, pleas for mercy and disturbing imagery only for the sake of terrifying the viewer. Fuck that shit. I can see why people like TCM, it really is one of the most unsettling movies of all time, but I entirely dislike watching this sort of film.

By the way, the fans of TCM might enjoy watching the Australian horror movie Wolf Creek and the Belgian horror movie Calvaire (The Ordeal). They are in the same vein as TCM and imo they are terrible.

Cabin in the Woods 8/10

A lot of very self-aware fun while also being a rather well paced horror film.

I would include A Tale of Two Sisters, Ring, One Missed Call, and for some reason, Inland Empire.

I think the American version of the The Ring is one of the few times where I vastly prefer it to the foreign original

Eh that on was kind of ruined for me because outside of the first scene I knew absolutely everything that was going to happen before it happened.

I'd like to see more good horror films because so many of them are just complete shlock. On that note, I'm gonna go home and watch Vampyr.

Give some examples of horror films you consider schlock? I want to know because "schlock horror" is also a subgenre of horror that led to the splatter and gore horror pictures. Those I like quite a lot... I assume tho that's not what you were talking about. But anyway, here are a few suggestions for original, creative, scary or just mindbogglingly well made horror films.

Peeping Tom
Videodrome
The Innocents
The Black Cat (1934)
The Devils
Kwaidan
The Mask of Satan
Suspiria
The Brood
Hour of the Wolf
The Entity
Dellamorte Dellamore
Don't Look Now
Nosferatu (both the Murnau and the Herzog version)
Carnival of Souls
In The Mouth of Madness
The Fly
Shivers (aka They Came From Within)
Bride of Frankenstein
Eyes Without a Face
The Vanishing
Black Sabbath (the Italian language version)
Martin
Cronos
Picnic at Hanging Rock
The Haunting (1963)
Jacob's Ladder
The Tenant

(kinda assuming you've already seen, but if not, they're all more than worth the hype and status)
The Exorcist
Halloween
The Shining
Rosemary's Baby
Alien
The Thing


Thanks for the list! I think I'm gonna watch Nosferatu alone in my room tonight when I get home.

Once Upon a Time in the West - 9/10

I've never seen a Western that looked better (aside from McCabe), but then again, I'm a film n00b. The two-and-a-half hour running time seems a tad excessive, but the entire atmosphere it creates is just amazing. Needless to say, I enjoyed it a lot.

Yes, very underrated film. Plus, it's available on netflix instant watch.

The Romantics (2010)
4.5/10

Decent enough characters, but oh my god does this movie talk way too damn much.

I liked it. It didn't blow me away, but I thought it was well done. I watched Dreyer's Vampyr recently too, and while they're very different movies, I encountered the same issue of not being very satisfied with the ending - or really the plot as a whole. Great images and a good handling of mood (more so in Vampyr, in my opinion), but not the most engaging plot, characters, or resolution.

i've always preferred vampyr to nosferatu, but then again I'm a Dreyer nigga. I think they are both completely visionary films. They do grow with time tho, like all great movies.
