What spooky scary movies are you queuing up this Halloween?

I've got The Mist, Diabolique, The Ruins and The Living and the Dead queued up so far.

I just watched JAWS (I own the deluxe edition but hadn't actually watched most of it yet) which is still such a great movie. One of the most enjoyable horror movies -- and there are still two moments that always make me jump, literally.

I also just watched two of the movies in the Val Lewton set, which are always high on creepy atmosphere. I Walked With a Zombie, way ahead of its time in some ways, and Ghost Ship. Good stuff. Maybe I'll watch the second/sequel Cat People movie which I haven't seen.

I was also thinking of my yearly zombie fest -- queued up Return of the Living Dead, which reminds me of being a high school freshman and thinking that was the coolest -- and maybe Evil Dead (2) which I haven't seen in years.

I wouldn't mind getting a creepy ghost movie, too. My favorites are The Changeling and Poltergeist, and The Uninvited. Plus The Others and The Orphanage from recent times. So something else along those lines. Ever seen Burnt Offerings? That's in my queue.

I haven't really thought about queuing any movies. But my favorite scary movies are:

House of wax (Old version) (Vincent Price)
Aliens (in space no one can here you scream)that's always scared me the most.
Friday the 13th, (any of them)
nightmare on elm st (Any of them)
The howling (only the first one)
House on haunted hill (Vincent Price also)
Kindred (I don't think anyone has seen this one)
any many other I forgot to mention

It's amazing how many Howling sequels there were. But the first one had Joe Dante and John Sayles contributing among others and yeah is the only good one. (Though I did find the Marsupials one unintentionally funny.)

I recommend...

Humanoids from the Deep (if you can find it)
Beast Within
Signal
28 Days/Weeks Later
Return of the Living Dead
The Lost Boys
The Company of Wolves
Howard the Duck (more comedy than horror)
Once Bitten
Seed of Chucky
Signs (I know, I'm the only person who still gets chills when they show the green guy on tv)

Most of those movies are more for laughs than anything.

I got The Hills Have Eyes II (1984) and Grub Girl coming soon. =]

I love Company of Wolves -- that's fairy tales done the right way, dark and sexy. :-)

Howard the Duck -- definitely a scary flick, especially for people who financed it. ;-) Poor Lea Thompson...

Grub Girl -- fun for the whole family! ;-) Sounds like gory, sexxxxy fun.

Maybe a rental of Hell House is in order too. That one disturbed me almost as much as Jesus Camp.

I'll tell ya what I'd like to see.

I went online lookin' for region free versions, but so far have not found any. I know, I should just get an all region player, or hack mine, but these seem like drastic measures.

Speaking of Spanish horror, I recently watched "Who Could Kill a Child" (sorry, don't think it is available at GreenCine). Quite a bizarre and twisted little thriller. Behavior by the two leads often comes close to ridiculous, but still worth watching.

I'm dying for that one, too! Well, not literally, but yeah...

At your service: Who Could Kill a Child.

Good call on that one. Odd but memorable.

I'm queuing it right up.

There was a Hell House in the town I moved from to come to California but I never went into it. Apparently they weren't making their intentions obvious until after people paid the non refundable admission fee and went inside.

I've got Critters, Hellraiser 8 and Leprechaun in Space on my DVR. :D

I'd also suggest some tv series. Supernatural and Blood Ties!

Oooh, and Tales from the Crypt.

Hellraiser 8?? There is a Hellraiser 8?

"Critters", loved that one. I recently watched "Slither" which was a fun one and obviously borrowed quite a bit from "Critters"

Hellraiser: Hellworld (I just found out that not only is it horrible, it's also from a script that wasn't Hellraiser-related - delete time!).

Critters is awesome. I love old 80's horror. It can be creepy and funny at the same time. Slither also gave a nod to Troma. I might watch Class of Nuke 'Em High 3 for Halloween, if I don't go to Thrillvania that night.

Leprechaun in Space is a flick I've seen before. I still say the Leprchaun movies rock. They're so ridiculous and yet...he still makes me flinch.
