I like the old ones... THE BAD SEED, THE WAX MUSEUM, WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE ones like that... Vincent Price was great even his voice was scary.

The new ones are too bloody and silly for me.

Loved the SHINNING with Jack Nickleson. I read the book first so I should have known but it still scared the heck out of me.

Trish, you picked some good ones! Wait Until Dark, too!

I prefer suspense to horror, although The Ring was the scariest movie I've seen in the last 25 years or so.

A wonderful suspense movie is Dead Calm. Had me pacing the living room.

Have you seen the original Japanese version of The Ring? I thought it was even creepier.

Dead Calm was also excellent. That's about the couple on the boat?

Is that the one with Nicole Kidman?
It's the only movie that hubby has ever commanded me NOT to watch.

No, the original version did not have any western actors. Rent it if you get the chance.

No, roadfix, I have not seen the Japanese version of The Ring, although I've heard it was excellent.

Trish, if you are referring to Dead Calm with your question, yes, Nicole Kidman was in it, along with Sam Neill and Billy Zane. I assume that your husband thought it was as nerve-wracking as I did???

I have NEVER seen that movie.

My favorite scary movie is The Lost Boys. The great thing about that movie is that you never actually see them as vampires until half way through the movie. The horror is subtle and I love that about the movie.,

I also like that one, my favorites are the first John Carpenter's Vampires the second one was OK. I love, love, love Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula Gary Oldman kicked butt in that one.

I love The Lost Boys, but I never considered it a horror movie. I don't know why... it's about vampires so probably is a horror movie. Maybe too much comedy mixed in? Great movie. I loved the twist it put on "modern day" vampires. I don't remember vampires being portrayed that way before.
