Essential Horror Movies for Horror Movie Geeks

Jed Shepherd
 
Night Of The Comet [DVD]
Night Of The Comet [DVD]
"My favourite horror movie of all time. Its cheesy 80's trash but its one of my 'comfort' films. Cheerleaders/Guns/Zombies. What more do you want?"
Lake Mungo [DVD]
Lake Mungo [DVD]
"Possibly the best of the 'found footage' sub-genre that is slowly becoming tiresome. This is the psuedo-documentary done with such finesse, that it's almost believable."
Martyrs [DVD]
Martyrs [DVD]
"This is the movie that horror film fans recommend to other horror fans on a regular basis. It really defines french extreme horror. Almost perfect."
Switchblade Romance [DVD]
Switchblade Romance [DVD]
"Some people moan about the ending of this film. Those people don't deserve eyes. More twists than a curly-wurly, this is a perennial favourite of all horror enthusiasts."
Inside [DVD] [2007]
Inside [DVD] [2007]
"The french are currently kings of the genre and this surprisingly gory gem proves it. Watch it before the Hollywood remake ruins it forever."
The Loved Ones [DVD]
The Loved Ones [DVD]
"I found myself falling in love with the psycho killer girl. Yes, this proves I'm disturbed but not as disturbed as the people in the basement."
Pontypool [DVD] [2008]
Pontypool [DVD] [2008]
"Hands down my favourite low budget zombie film ever. Its subtle, beautifully acted and so so clever. The Kill/Kiss scene is a game changer."
Ghostwatch [DVD]
Ghostwatch [DVD]
"This BBC production defined my childhood. The fact lots of my friends still talk about this now shows how much of an effect it had. Pipes Forever."
Don't Look Now [DVD] [1973]
Don't Look Now [DVD] [1973]
"Very influential. Very atmospheric. Very scary. Every time I see an Italian midget with a knife now, I flinch. It's the Argento film he never made."
A Tale Of Two Sisters [DVD] [2004]
A Tale Of Two Sisters [DVD] [2004]
"One of the few post-Ringu movies that makes me shudder. The Koreans really stepped up their horror in the last decade and this is possibly the best."
Dark Water [2003] [DVD]
Dark Water [2003] [DVD]
"Multiple times better than the Hollywood remake. This has the ability to make you more scared of H2O than Jaws ever could. So much tragedy, but so beautiful."
A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors [DVD]
A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors [DVD]
"This is the best of the franchise and the only one I can watch now without cringing. Great performances and a brilliant concept that the kids can fight back against Freddy. Could be a standalone."
Army of Darkness / Evil Dead 3 [DVD]
Army of Darkness / Evil Dead 3 [DVD]
"I prefer AoD to the first two Evil Dead films as it perfectly captures the horror/comedy zeitgeist that similar films lacked. Bruce Campbell should be bigger than he is off this one film alone."
The People Under The Stairs [DVD] [1991]
The People Under The Stairs [DVD] [1991]
"My favourite Wes Craven film by a long shot. Its like a messed-up Goonies but alot darker and with more cutlery going missing."
Masters of Horror: John Carpenter -  Cigarette Burns
Masters of Horror: John Carpenter - Cigarette Burns
"Carpenter OWNS this series and this episode is so far ahead of the others, its embarrassing. Monstrous angels, entrails and lots of gore, I cant recommend this enough."
Masters of Horror: Jenifer [DVD] [2006] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Masters of Horror: Jenifer [DVD] [2006] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Almost as good as 'cigarette burns', this episode is REALLY messed up. Who hasn't had a girlfriend like this before? Definitely makes you question yourself..."
