    Please tell me you're not serious? I don't even count that as a horror film, it's just a teen slasher movie. Things are scarier when you don't see them.

    Uhh... Last time I checked, Slasher movies were part of the Horror film genre.

    It's pretty hard to pick, 'cause I have many faves.
    I guess it would have to be Se7en.

    There's a few. I'll go with The Thing (John Carpenter's).

    Not enough people know how awesome this is.
    They'd get bored as hell doing that after a while, and then I'd be through with having conversations for the rest of my life.

    I don't count them as such, they are never scary and are just about horny, retarded teens that get killed because they are so stupid. A horror film has to be scary, that's what I think anyway.

    "Scary" is entirely subjective. I've never watched any movie of that sort where I wasn't rooting for the protagonists to get slaughtered in gruesome ways. They don't scare me, and it's exactly the same for a lot of other people.

    Therefore, your definition falls flat.

    Also, I do not have a favorite horror movie. I find the whole genre to be pretty boring.

    In films where you see little of the 'bad guy' and just hear noises or get glimpses occaisonaly are the films that I would find scary. Having jason run around with a machete makes me want to laugh.

    Yes but I think you have missed something. At no time did Red Koopa say that they found the Friday 13th Movies frightening just that they were their favourite horror movies. There is a possibility they may find them particularly well made or be a big Kevin Bacon fan and just happened to enjoy the rest of the series as well. Also, whilst I have not seen all of these movies so it may change later on but the ones I have seen you hardly feature Jason at all until somebody is getting killed and apart from a couple of minutes at the end he is not in the first two movies at all. Besides some slasher movies can be very scary and unsettling as anybody who has seen The Burning or the first Halloween may agree.

    Back on topic though for me it is The Haunting (Original version)

    When it comes to scary: Nightmare on Elm Street.
    When it comes to pure entertainment and enjoyability: Halloween.

    I have actually watched all of them with my housemates unfortunately, just for the 'it's so awful it has to be funny effect'. Still Leprechaun in Space is by far one of the worst films I've ever seen, and I've seen some bad ones.

    Not really sure about my favourite 'horror' film, but on one of them 'top100' programmes they had The Shining as #1. Not really scary, but then again no horror movie actually is. Still it's got a lot of suspense, and of course - Mad Jack, so it has to be good.

    The Evil Dead.

    Best horror flick ever.

    Though when it comes to scariest horror film I'd have to go with Stephen King's It. It was the only movie that ever made me feel something that even remotely resembled fright.

    Speaking of which, I hold Tim Curry personally responsible for my irrational fear of clowns...

    That's pretty much most of the 1st parts of all Slasher films - after that, the slashers become cult icons and the movies there after become centered on them rather than the victims which waters the movies down.

    As Prak said, "scary" is subjective. I remember as a kid, The Exorcist was the scariest movie ever. When they re-released it, I went to go see it, and when it ended, a kid about the same age I was when I first saw it said "What's scary about that? It's stupid!" - I was like WHAT!!!
    Now we have all these "Psychological Horror" movies from Japan. Don't get me wrong, they have good plots, but I don't find them scary.

    Vastalis, do you mean the remakes or the actual japanese films?

    my favorite horror movie, even though it probably doesn't count as one, is The Orphanage (AKA EL Orfanato). it was really scary and well made. i don't watch very many scary movies because i am a puss, so most of you will probably find this movie to be mild.

    Both. The originals were way better than the english remakes. They're good stories, but I didn't find either of them scary.

    don't forget about Killer Clowns from Outer Space
    Tim Curry came out in that movie?

    A Scanner Darkly haunts me...even its not classified as horror.

    Requiem for a Dream is just sick and there are some few cool parts in The Grudge 2.

    28 Days Later is good and 28 Weeks Later is OK.

    Cube is genius.

    edt: BR is also good
