We have gleaned a few more suggestions from fellow horror movie afficionados, but last night we had The Last Exorcism already DVR'd so we watched that. Yes, there were scary parts but they were getting to be a little old hat - young virgin girl gets possessed by a demon that makes her body contort in odd fashions and maybe there was some vomiting. It's filmed as a documentary about the weird beliefs and practices in Louisiana and this preacher who is basically a fraud laughing about his "exorcisms". It was thrilling waiting for the bad things to happen to this guy and the camera crew (and that poor kitty cat) but the end wasn't scary as in WTF? but more like, ok, that's what I thought it was like in Louisiana already (having seen Angel Heart back in the day).
On the list to check out are:
- Dawn of the Dead (I think we may have seen this already but I can't be sure)
- 28 Days Later
- Salem's Lot (this scared the bejeesus out of me when I was a kid)
- The Thing (original version, scared me too)
- Dead Snow
So, do you have any scary movie recommendations?
