I like The Mist too

Yes, so many great monsters in it and a devastating and unexpected ending; thanks for your vote. :)

God! I had all but forgotten about Killdozer! I saw it ages ago when I was in my early teens. I'm not sure how it would weather the years between though as I have not seen it since.

The Mist is definitely one of my favorite horror films though.

I think that Killdozer was the first film to show a 'possessed' vehicle. I originally saw it when I was a child and it really scared me! Thanks for the vote. :)

Great horror films on your list. "I Saw the Devil" a 2010 South Korean production was the only film that I have seen in the theatre that left me disturbed as I walked out after seeing it.

Thanks so much for your vote and for the suggestion - I'll try to see it. Koreans make great horror films. :)

Good list and some films I have not got around to seeing...Mirrors, The Hand 6 Souls...I have never understood why The Shining is highly rated...its well shot as Kubrick had a very good eye for composition and a few scenes are good but as a horror its very lacking - tbh I think if it didnt have Kubricks name on it it would just be an average movie
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jan 6 10:23
xxixii: Thanks for your vote. Maybe 'The Shining' looks a bit dated now but it was very scary in its day. :)
