1. The Ruins (2008)
Surprisingly solid horror - starts off cliched with a group of partying teens on their last day of holiday go to explore an unmapped ruin - it picks up fairly quick and the evil/the creature is handled okay despite the absurdity of it. Some obvious lapses in logic which could have been handled better

2. ?: A Question Mark (2012)
An Indian version of Blair Witch Project which lacks everything that made BWP at least interesting if not scary. They may have been better making some Bollywood big musical melodramatic dance version! The area has a deep rich mythology so why not use that to make something original?

Anyways the film can be seen entirely on youtube , trailer is below

3. Reeker (2005)
Better than average little known horror flick

4. Nazi Zombie Battleground (2012)
A fairly original angle as its an anthology of 3 short horror films with a World War 2 setting - Its low budget and shows, most of the effects are laughable and the acting is pretty bad - just wait until you see a meeting in a hall where it clearly has modern looking plastic chairs...LOL ... Good ideas ruined by poor execution in the main - it needs better effects better acting and more authentic locations. Shame it had potential

5. The Marsh (2006)
average bog-standard horror thriller - nicely shot solid acting just we have seen it all before - nothing new to offer

6. The Red Shoes (2005)
A fairly standard Asian horror flick - confusing as hell but it has nice imagery in places. For a change the kid in this flick was sympathetic.OK. 5 minutes in and has a wtf??? moment



Oh - the red shoes look pink to me - maybe some translation thing

7. Next Door (2005)
Just when I thought I would never see another decent mindfuck messed up psychological thriller/horror I see this...and its European (Norwegian)too, I am gobsmacked - though it does occasionally slip into the problem with all reality bending films - you dont know what is real so you give up caring a bit. great casting of the 2 lead women as they look suitably crazy/whorish/evil

8. Mulholland Drive (2001)
Oh god I should have known better as its a David Lynch film - so its going to be arty incomprehensible bullshit dressed up as some deep meaning thing by critics - apart from the camerawork its piss poor seriously - oh one freaky bit with the hairy witch/dark thing suddenly appearing near the start is a half decent wtf moment



ps I have no real idea why this nonsense is classified as a mindfuck and a horror

9. Splinter (2008)
This starts of okay and 2/3 of the way through is excellent with an Oh.My.Fucking.God moment - enjoyable but a bit erratic - would have been better if they made the action sequences a bit more comprehensible. Worth watching - sort of Evil Dead meets The Thing



xxixii's rating:

People who added this item 218  Average listal rating (131 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 5.8 
10. The Hole (2009)
I thought this was a re-make of Brit thriller The Hole but its a strange thing a bit like It - too blatant and obvious to be remotely scary. It seems to have ignored the last 2 decades of horror where the standards have been raised highly - a cheese fest to be honest, very Spielbergian in the worst sense

my attempt to watch 120 horror films I have never seen before

edit 31/12/2012 - I have found most of the older films a little disappointing so will concentrate on more modern films...1990s and beyond

edit 1/1/2013 --- 2013 and I am still not even halfway through

edit 7/1/2013 -- hopefully I will now be able to watch at least 1 film a day and clear this within 2 months

edit 10/1/2013 -- i am wondering why I have 1 missing film as my numbers do not tally

edit 18/2/2013 --- down to the final 30...its been a weird ride I initially and stupidly thought I could just see 120 movies 1 a day with no problem --- i did not account for a few illnesses in the family and simply the drag or monotony of watching almost exclusively one genre (nothing to do with horror as I think I would feel jaded doing 120 comedies!) - lesson learned - once completed I will stick to stuff more achievable and less draining - the best thing about this is that QUALITY flicks will be memorable through the dreck also it highlights just how broad the Horror genre can be

edit 5/3/2013 . thanks to everyone thats voted so far - I am on the final straight - at last!

edit 11/3/2013 - finished at last! thanks for the votes, comments and suggestions - hopefully I will get around to seeing them this Halloween but for now I need a break from the genre

Hmm...difficult to recommend films not knowing what you've seen, so rather than attempt to list some films I'll invite you to check out my lists of my favorite horror movies. Hopefully they will provide you with plenty to add here. :)

thanks - I should edit as I mainly want to watch modern horror though stuff like Kwaiden interests me

I just posted a list of 100 Horror Movies I have seen(how do I link to it?) - In general I prefer modern movies, I dont like sequels (Is anyone that interested in seeing Romero do another zombie movie? or the billointh Scream?) or US remakes of foreign horror ( Funny Games is the exception as I saw that in the US version) - I like original viewpoints so things like Pontypool and Cube are welcome

I wouldn't consider Last House on the Left a great film by any means. It's mostly only noteworthy for being Wes Craven's first film, and in that sense I found it worth watching. It's got a few moments I dug but overall it's pretty lame.

Love Hausu and Versus.

Recommendations: Cemetery Man (AKA Dellamorte Dellamore), Black Sheep (2006), Dead Alive, Fido, Bubba Ho-tep, House of 1000 Corpses, From Dusk Till Dawn, and Maniac
