Monster Movies What You Should Watch [Sep. 19th, 2014|07:56 am]

Invariably, when I ask people "what's a good horror movie I should check out?" lots of people invariably respond "The Exorcist! Alien! Poltergeist!" -- so I thought I should make a list of my favorite horror movies that you probably haven't heard of. I've linked each of them to its particular youtube trailer. Feel free to add your own in the comments.

I loooooove Troll Hunter.

And for elegantly-scare-the-crap-outta-me, I always go back to the original movie adaptation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House.

Oh man, that movie scared the crap out of me when I was a teen.

Then I read the book and had everything else scared out of me. I'm kind of a wuss.

You don't want to read that book when you're alone after dark. Don't ask me how I know.

you included pretty much what i was going to. thanks for the reminders as miss rei is a horror fanatic at the tender age of 12(right now we are watching the texas chainsaw massacre remake). i am going to watch this post for more suggestions so we have things to bond over as we need that right now!

i do love the classics, and there are some great forgotten ones. my brain is broken right now, but i will add mine in another comment when i can think!

If you're looking for interesting reviews of horror movies, you need to check out the reviews at Triskaidekafiles, written by my friend foenix. Good stuff here.

I don't know if he's ever reviewed the movies you listed, but maybe he did and I didn't look hard enough.

I've suggested Rare Exports as a double feature with _Troll Hunter_.
