    Hi all

    Calling in the troops now. Ive recently started dating a girl and found out a couple of weeks back she's a bit of a horror movie fan... so last week I selected a film that scared the bejesus out of me in the cinema: Drag me to hell.

    She laughed at the selection and teased me for days after saying it was more a comedy and didnt even make "thriller" status. Bah! Im a bit of a movie buff, but have never really ventured into horror because I can take it or leave it. This week though, I need to scare the socks off her!

    So I need suggestions for scary films, pleeeassse! I dont really like "old style" films and would prefer the newer (1995 or later) films. I am clueless with scary films and would rather go spend my readies on something I know she will get a buzz from rather than another fiasco :cry:

    Thanks guys

    Jim

    'Isolation' might be a good one. It's about a killer mutant cow feotus. It's kind of funny aswell, but amusing to watch. Scared me a little bit because I was living right next to a dairy farm at the time and could actually hear the cows from my room lol!

    I'll try to think of more films tonight :)

    It's a really random film, similar to Black Sheep. If you haven't seen that, its about killer sheep. Thats meant to be a comedy but Isolation isn't. Definately good to watch at least once lol.

    Trying to think of other films but if shes a horror fan she'll have probably seen loads already. Ermmmm, 2001 maniacs is good, that has the guy who plays Freddy Kruger. Cube Zero, Pathology, [REC], Planet Terror, Mirrors (not too scary but still good), Halloween (rob zombie remake), Untraceable. Possibly Teeth but thats more scary for guys lol! Can't think of many more atm.

    If your after geniunely creepy horror you want to be looking at japanese stuff - very dark surreal and crazy!

    Some good examples are the original versions of the ring, dark water, the grudge (before america destroyed them completely!) noroi, jigoku and alone,however, the most unnerving thing ive watched in a long time is 3 extremes which is 3 stories from 3 directors well worth checking out

    I was going to say My Bloody Valentine, but it's not that great in 3D on dvd. Was good at the cinema though but was just disappointed with the 3Dness when I got the dvd lol. Might be ok if you haven't seen it before though.

    Paranormal Activity is good and comes out on dvd on monday I think.

    This edited version of the list is my ideal dvd weekend! I'd also highly recommend the original Last House On The Left by Wes Craven. It's WAY older than 1995, but twas banned for a few erm, decades!

    I'm a huge horror fan, my favourites are the ones that play on your mind a bit, you know the oh this could possibly happen types like Final Destination and The Strangers. I also love the Saw series, but that's cuz I'm also a huge fan of gore.

    Treat her to some of the classics and you'll be fine

    I watched Paranormal Activity when it was at the cinemas and still have odd nights listening to the house as i try to sleep :D

    My OH slept down on the sofa one night and said never again as he had a nightmare that he had been pulled over to our dvd stand in the room. I said that was awful, i'd hate anything to happen to the dvd collection :D

    It definately depends on the type of horror fan she is.. Ima lover of allthings disturbingand gory..but slashes scare the hell outta me! :eek:
    Loving Chillimangos list, definately recommend The Descent, a great british scary film and think the sequel is out around now too (havent seen it yet sadly).
    Eden Lake is also an amazing film.. very disturbing.. its not the goriest/scariest of films but man it really makes an impact on you long after the film.
    For pure gore..definately the hostel films :D i think im a bit weird I enjoy that, and the saw ones too.

    The scariest films of my life are the slashers and creepy films like Candyman and the original nightmare on elm streets..I watched it when I was like 13 and couldnt sleep properly for days.never gotten over that one.. Im avoiding the remake!

    I watched 'Paranormal Activity' and it scared the hell outta me. I'm a huge fan of horror movies too and normally it takes a lot to scare me.
    Stay away from the films that just consist of gore since they are not very scary. Films based on true events can be quite frightening.

    What about Rob Zombie films, like house of a 1000 corpses?

    I don't find 'scary' films scary, but something about his films creep me the hell out.

    Thanks all for your suggestions - we actually watched Paranormal Activity in the end and she was terrified and it was great. I mean that in a non-sadistic way. Top film!!

    I just finished watching the japanese horror "Suicide Club" ,
    "Audition" is another great one...
    My fave horror movie has got to be "house of 1000 corpses" though
    "Eden Lake" is another nice disturbing film :)

    It probably doesn't matter anymore lol... but there's a few ideas for ya anyway :)
