    I'm not really sure that it counts as "horror" but I would say Fallen, its one of the few films I didn't get the big surprise until just a few minutes before it happened. I could totally see it as an nWOD mortals chronicle to.

    Yeah, Fallen was excellent. Man, can Denzel act! I could totally see that as a NWoD adventure.

    I liked Alien and Nightmare on Elmstreet.

    Alien was suspenseful and scary.

    Nightmare on Elmstreet because you couldn't tell if it was a dream or reality.

    However, I would have to say that Pan's Labyrnith is a mighty fine horror movie. I was truely distrubed by this movie, and that's fairly hard to do for me.

    Silent Hill was amazing to me. The artistic work in it was truly vivid. I've never seen anything else like it. It is probably my most favorite horror movie of all time. Being the horror buff that I am I think that is saying a lot. Although I knew few would agree with me. Especially fans of the game who feel cheated. But what fan doesn't feel cheated by the movie that represents a world they previously only knew through video games or in their imagination?

    Greatest of all times? That's a tough one to say. I'm not sure I could point to one movie and say it was the best. The Alien line would be among my favorites to be sure. But, I do have a recommendation. If you've never seen it, check out Serpent and the Rainbow. It's an old one, but a good one. It has a slightly different take on the typical zombie theme.

    Oh yea, the Serpent and the Rainbow is a good one; I really liked it as well, especially since the story was based off a real world event.

    The Believers was also another good horror voodoo movie in my opinion.

    The Thing with Kurt Russell was a good one as well.

    Yeah Carpenter's The Thing is good stuff I remember an ex-girlfriend reacting to one of the early scenes when the Norwegians are trying to kill the nice little doggy... "Oh the bastards they're trying to kill this innocent dog !" I couldn't understand considering the name of the movie how she could fall for this predictable trick Women and horror movies...

    Wow, there are so many I like...
    An American Werewolf in London was very well done, almost unexpected the way it plays out.
    Fright Night was great as well as the sequel for fun broad appeal.
    Salem's Lot was very good considering it was written by a drunken fool and made into a miniseries.
    The Lost Boys was a fun horror movie.
    30 Days of Night is a good new look at vampire movies.
    Hellraiser was original and striking.
    Dawn of the Dead was probably the best zombie flick.

    I guess, The Omen would be close to the top for me. I remember when it came out, it really got me. The religious references striking my young mind and religious upbringing was very scary.

    Yes, as well as another of his Aplcalypse Trilogy movies Prince of Darkness (I wasn't a huge fan of the third in the trilogy In the Mouth of Madness)

    I also liked Angel Heart and Bram Stoker's Dracula.

    One of my favorites when I was a kid was The Howling, though I was young when I last saw it. Don't know how I would like it now.

    Angel Heart of course !

    Noticeable vampire movies : I liked the Nosferatu with Klaus Kinski and The Hunger with Deneuve and Bowie...

    On the other hand, Tom "midget" Cruise as Lestat, I never accepted it. Most book adaptations suck, but this one...
