Much obliged.

Re: Favorite Horror Movies

All of his thrillers and horrors from the 70s and 80s are worth watching. From the 90s I only particularly care for The Stendhal Syndrome, and from the 2000s onward I think Sleepless is alright and the rest range from underwhelming to atrocious.

I'm not sure what happened, though I am sure it is in part due to a decline in the Italian film industry. It had an amazingly fertile horror production machine from 60s Bava to the end of the 80s, with the last gasp being Michele Soavi's masterpiece Dellamorte Dellamore.

John Carpenter's The Thing...pure paranoia, pure dread on many levels.

This is a pretty comprehensive list of really good horror flicks, including many considered to be obscure but punishingly brutal, bizarre, gory, etc.

If experimental horror is your thing, Begotten should not be missed.

Re: Favorite Horror Movies

Several of those films really aren't that extreme or disturbing. I barely remember the violence in Valhala Rising, the atmosphere makes a stronger impression. Visitor Q is a bit gross but it's too funny to be on the list.

Would still like to see In A Glass Cage but my days of gruelling for its own sake are long gone.

Re: Favorite Horror Movies

Well, of course any list composed by others is going to have holes in it, and this one is no different. The difference is that many films among the list are simply not that great, or even "disturbing", but many on that list are outside the scope of what the average viewer of "horror" films might want to see. I would be willing to bet that your average horror "fan" has not seen many of those, and like I said...lists made by other people simply satisfy the list-maker, and will always include those many think should not be there and those missing that others feel do, thus the nature of a "best of" anything. Ever.

What gruelling? In A Glass Cage is a must watch. Villaronga is no exhibitionist, it's deadly serious film, especially considering Spanish context.
