Last minute horror suggestions (or for general impact any evening)

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Earles on October 31, 2007

1. The Tenant (1976) – Scarier than Rosemary’s Baby. Might cure you of apartment buildings.

2. Duel (1971) – When did filmmakers stop using the unknown?

3. Near Dark (1987) – Vulnerability is always a nice addition to horror villains. A great film.

4. Session 9 (2001) – Modern horror at its best, without a reliance on gore.

5. Rituals (1977) – When I was rather young, this movie scared the living shit out of me. A blatant Deliverance rip-off, but worth a look.

6. The Mothman Prophecies (2002) – I’m not joking. This movie did indeed contain moments that scared me. Then again, maybe you shouldn’t be taking movie advice from an amateur UFO nut.

7. The Vanishing (1988 – the original) – I’ve always had a problem with how this movie left me feeling in the end, but I respect it.

8. A Friend Like Harry (2000) – I don’t know. Just see it.

9. The Exorcist III (1990) – Best third sequel ever made.

10. The Changeling (1980) – George C. Scott’s great freak-out period of 1979 – 1981.

11. The Last House on the Left (1972) – Just keep thinking “1972.”

12. The Thing (1982 – remake) – When John Carpenter was being interviewed for Bravo’s 100 Scariest Movie Moments, he was wearing a band-aid over his recently removed forehead mole.

    Saw The Changeling and Hardcore (my personal fave of G.C.S.) at the West Memphis movie theater in the parking lot behind the Kroger.

    This same theater also showed Blade Runner, Road Warrior and The Entity, only remembered because the invisible Entity squeezed a nude breast of Barbara Hershey.

    How about S.E.S.S.I.O.N. 9 ?
    That scene where the employee snuck into the basement of the hospital at night to steal hidden gold coins.
    Scary.
    David Caruso.
    Hillarious. (in short bursts)

    WARNING: Under no circumstance should anyone view the EXTRAS on the DVD. They feature alternative endings that are insane. Avoid.
