Glad this thread was started because I'm going to see some of these.
Good time of the year for them, too...
Best month of the year for them. I like horror movies that have humor. I thought Drag Me to Hell was funny so was Army of Darkness.

I was so frightened by his looks I turned the television off.

The BOOK the Exorcist.

I stopped my late night reading when I got to the part about a red eyed pig. I remember scurrying out the front door, and flinging the book as far away into the darkness as possible. In the morning light, I picked it up from the edge of the road and shoved it into a jar of water, capped it, and drove it to a dumpster downtown.

I read it when it first came out. I have to say the movie was worse, at least, you can put the book down when it gets too intense.

Nope! The book left you with your own personal vision of stark terror.

My mind or imagination can make me SEE more explicitly than the person who dreams up a movie EVER could.

I had no idea what a visual movie The Exorcist was
going to be. I didn't even know what an exorcism was.
I think the book had some creepy stuff in it that
wasn't included in the movie.

I thought, Silence of the Lamb, was scary as all get out. Great cast of actors.

Yes, that was a great movie. Next came Hannibal. Visually nauseating, scare you sick with fear. To watch him dine from the living detectives' fish tank brain. Here is a bite,... oh yes fry it up! There is a bite,.... Chianti? anyone?

I have to say one of the most brutal books I've ever read was, The Devil's Punchbowl by Greg Isles.
If they ever made it into a movie, and it was produced right, it could be a brillant film.

Movies tend to disappoint me when based on novels. Some are so loosely based that they only resemble the book by the title. I have found this almost always occurs with Dean Koontz novels.

I understand where you're coming from~~
For the most part I feel the same way.
This film would have to have a great producer/director.
Oliver Stone or Martin Scorsese, comes to mind.

The Stand...

The book was scarier, but the movie was the best adaptation I've ever seen.

Although, it wasn't scary, Argo was an excellent movie. Alan Arkin and John Goodman were really funny. It really had some tense moments.

The Bad Seed

The original 1956 film, saw it as a kid and it scared me.
The concept of a child being that mean, was genius at the time.
