Whats your favorite scary movie?
Well the title does take you down the Scream route, and therefor Wes Craven & the Freddy series, most of which are enjoyable as they are, if a bit laughable now.. Along with the friday the 13th movies and the later Halloween films, they are just fun.
Now remakes, the Friday the 13th remake & Texas Chainsaw masacre were just comical, more splatter gore than horror, although i really did enjoy the Rob Zombie remake of Halloween, who has also done a few other really good horror films, my favourite of which is The Devils Rejects.
Another good remake and original film, was The Grudge, mostly cos the remake was made by the same people who made the original, with a minor plot change from the original Japanese film, whih along with The Ring Series (and not a horror but Battle Royale) are amoungst some of my favourite films (add the Korean film Oldboy in too for the collection)
And finally, thanks to a musical friend who supplied some music for a film, i discovered a British film maker by the name of Pat Higgins, who so far has released 4 films, with a couple more in production etc, these are : Trashhouse, KillerKiller, Hellbride & The Devils Music. The new ones are an anthology film and a film written by but not directed called “Strippers vs Werewolves”
But i’d recomend people finding KillerKiller on DVD and The Devils Music which is available on-line
