30 day Horror challenge

Sort by: Showing 30 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 165 Average listal rating (106 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.2
Monkey Shines (1988)
Day 1: A memorable animal in a horror movie


That damn monkey.

Tied with the rabbit pictured below.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 499 Average listal rating (315 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.5
Day 2: One of your earliest encounters with the horror genre


The more I think about it, I'm now convinced this was the first horror movie I ever watched. I'd thought it was one of the Universal classics, but now I think I watched those after this one.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1652 Average listal rating (1132 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.8
Evil Dead II (1987)
Day 3: A favorite saw or chainsaw scene


In which Ash overcompensates for losing his hand. (The scene can be seen here.)
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 267 Average listal rating (156 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.1
Day 4: A great horror movie doctor - Dr. Phibes


He ingeniously used the Ten Plagues in the Bible to take revenge for the loss of his wife. And played by the Amazing Vincent Price.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 761 Average listal rating (507 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.9
Creepshow (1982)
Day 5: Favorite horror director - George A. Romero


Between his Dead series (excluding Survival of the Dead which is crap), Creepshow, The Crazies, and Monkey Shines he's rightfully earned his spot at the top of my list.

Still need to watch Martin and a few others.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1773 Average listal rating (1157 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 7.9
Day 6: Your favorite movie by your favorite director


Also unofficially my favorite horror movie ever.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 2126 Average listal rating (1436 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.4
Day 7: A great hero - Ash


OK, so he may not be that great since he's more of a reluctant hero, but it's tough to argue that he's one of the best in the history of horror.
the giraffe's rating:
Day 8: Best comedy-horror


This or Shaun of the Dead or Evil Dead II or Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 809 Average listal rating (510 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 5.8
Day 9: A boring horror movie

Tried a few times to watch this, kept falling asleep before anything ever happened & eventually I gave up. And I'm pretty patient when it comes to movies.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1105 Average listal rating (665 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.8
Frankenstein (1931)
Day 10: Favorite classic horror movie


Iconic.

Note: This day was originally for "An instant classic" but I couldn't decide on one, plus I was disappointed looking at my list that there aren't many old horror films on here. So I changed it.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 290 Average listal rating (160 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 6.5
Maniac (1980)
Day 11: Most psychotic killer - Frank Zito

They don't get much crazier than this.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1134 Average listal rating (730 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.5
Dead Alive (1992)
Day 12: The goriest movie you’ve seen


Pretty sure that's the whole point.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 543 Average listal rating (303 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.7
The Vanishing (1988)
Day 13: Favorite foreign horror


Also: Cemetery Man (Dellamorte Dellamore), Le Corbeau, and The Testament of Dr. Mabuse
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 27 Average listal rating (16 ratings) 3.9 IMDB Rating 3.6
Day 14: The cheesiest horror you’ve ever seen


Thank you, MST3K, without whom this wouldn't be watchable.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1468 Average listal rating (987 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7
Hellraiser (1987)
Day 15: A great 80’s horror movie


"The box. You opened it. We came."
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 562 Average listal rating (306 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.6
May
Day 16: Great indie horror


A personal favorite, and not just because you get to see Anna Faris get killed.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 415 Average listal rating (296 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 6.8
Phantasm (1979)
Day 17: Favorite horror franchise


An unusual pick perhaps, but this is the only franchise where I've truly enjoyed every single film in the series.
the giraffe's rating:
Day 18: A movie people hate that you love


So Michael Myers isn't in this one. Get over it. I swear if this hadn't had the Halloween name on it more people would appreciate it. Halloween III is B-movie goodness.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 4102 Average listal rating (2711 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8.1
Day 19: A movie that disappointed you


Supposedly the scariest movie ever, and yet I found it laughable, ridiculous, and far too serious for its own good. Or maybe it's just that I'm not scared of "The Devil".
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 343 Average listal rating (226 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.3
Day 20: A great twist ending


So great it's about the only thing that justifies this film's existence.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 378 Average listal rating (243 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.1
Day 21: A horrible/lame twist


Because people can totally breathe underwater for over 3 hours. Oh wait, maybe she was swimming & nobody saw her while they were dredging the lake. Yeah, that's it. *rolls eyes* I had this one figured out from the start.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 4204 Average listal rating (2784 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.5
Psycho (1960)
Day 22: Best movie based on a book


Based on the book of the same name by Robert Bloch.

See also: Frankenstein, The Shining, and Hellraiser
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1602 Average listal rating (1044 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.4
Day 23: Scariest old person


Crazy Ralph!
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1169 Average listal rating (797 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6
Day 24: A movie you expected to be bad, but enjoyed


Admittedly this wasn't at all necessary, but I thought Rob Zombie did a good job with this remake. And personally I found it interesting that he came up with reasons why Michael Myers killed people, even though not knowing is far more frightening.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1228 Average listal rating (851 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.6
Child's Play (1988)
Day 25: A franchise you don’t like


Actually this one's not TOO bad, but I chose it because it's the only one I've seen enough films to judge it on & come out against (I've seen the first 3 & that was enough). Otherwise I might have chosen the Leprechaun series or something.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 96 Average listal rating (62 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 4.4
Day 26: Worst sequel


The only reason I was able to sit through any of this was because my friends & I were making fun of it. Total crap.
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 6526 Average listal rating (4535 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.4
Day 27: Favorite Stephen King movie


There is none higher.
the giraffe's rating:
Day 28: A great zombie movie
the giraffe's rating:
People who added this item 1008 Average listal rating (615 ratings) 4.7 IMDB Rating 4.6
Psycho (1998)
Day 29: A movie you refuse to watch

You don't remake a masterpiece.
People who added this item 455 Average listal rating (257 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.8
