Misery (1990)Has there ever been such a terrifying female horror “villain” as Kathy Bates’ Annie Wilkes? She’s initially, and on the surface, a loving, kind and helpful woman – a former nurse, in fact. What more could you possibly want from someone helping you to get heal after a car accident? But instead she turns out to be a crazed, obsessed fan of James Caan’s novelist, Paul Sheldon, and he unluckily gets “rescued” by her, kept sedated in her secluded home, eventually forced to rewrite his novel because he killed off her favorite character. Director Rob Reiner and screenwriter William Goldman draw everything they can from a fairly basic premise and make for one helluva of chilling watch, which is helped tremendously by the performers, particularly Bates as Annie (she won an Oscar for it, FYI).
Scariest Scene/Moment: One scene jumps straight to mind not only when I think about the scariest moments from this film but from any film, and that would be when Annie puts a piece of thick wood between the ankles of Paul and proceeds to break them sideways with a sledgehammer. In King’s book, Annie uses an axe instead of a hammer, which (as you can imagine by the way King describes things) is horrific enough. But somehow the sledgehammer – or at least the way Reiner shows it happening on-screen – is even MORE horrifying.
Going just by the plot description, this may seem like any other of the millions of zombie films out there - however like 28 Days Later, the "bad guys" here are technically NOT zombies, but do we really want to split hairs? Give it a chance and you’ll see it trumps most of the zombie films that have come before. The pace is put it up to an eleven from about the 20-minute mark onwards and it never lets up until the credits roll. There are tons of effective jump scares, skillfully done gore (it’s enough to get the point across but doesn’t go overboard) and “get under your skin” moments that stay with you long after the film ends. The performances, particularly from the lead actress, are very convincing.
Scariest Scene/Moment: Like pretty much ALL of the films on this list, there are so many “scariest moments” to be found (a couple that come to mind is when one of the firemen falls down the middle of the stairs, and when the little infected girl bites someone out of nowhere), but I simply HAVE to give it to the last 5-10 minutes when the lights go out and the night-vision of the camera gets turned on. Other recent movies (such as 28 Weeks Later and another certain “creature feature” that’s also on this list) have used night-vision for horror effect - but none quite so effectively as [REC]. Just what is in that room with the last two remaining uninfected people? It’s hard to tell, but what it hints at is truly horrific.
The Shining (1980)Probably the technically BEST horror film I’ve ever seen (and subsequently on this list), Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is a haunting, truly terrifying movie that features some of the most iconic horror moments, dialogue and imagery of all time. Everything from the Steadicam floating through the hallways and rooms of The Overlook Hotel, to the strange and terrifying visions make The Shining one of the all time greats of the genre. Jack Nicholson (in one of his best roles) gives a fantastically chilling performance as Jack Torrance; Shelley Duvall is convincingly terrified as his wife Wendy; and Danny Lloyd as little Danny is the perfect “horror survivor child.”
Scariest Scene/Moment: The blood flowing from the elevator, Jack following Danny in the snowy maze and the beautiful woman suddenly turning old all come to mind as highlights, but I think there’s no question the greatest scary moment from The Shining, and maybe any OTHER horror film, is Jack chopping his way through the bathroom door with that axe. On the other side is a terrified Wendy, with nothing but a knife to protect herself, and with every chop of that axe, and the closer Jack gets to getting through, the scarier it becomes (Duvall’s convincing scared performance doesn’t hurt). Finally, Jack breaks enough through the door to get his face through, and he says those famous horror words – “Heeeeeeerrrees Johnny!” Classic and horrific.
When Lawnmowers Attack (Dead Alive) – Before Peter Jackson was making trips with hobbits and remaking a certain classic giant ape he was toiling in the world of a virus originated by a diseased rat monkey that turns those bitten into zombies. It is an extremely gory and hilarious horror comedy that every genre fan should seek out. Towards the end of the film and things have all gone to hell our main character grabs himself a lawnmower and from then on, “Party’s Over,” he mows his way through the horde of zombies that have infested his house in a scene of sheer disgusting glory.
One Word, Inside (Inside) – My first exposure to French horror was this little home invasion gem known as INSIDE. It does not contain a single scene where lots of people are brutally butchered, but through the course of the film several people meet an awful and bloody demise. The killer’s weapon of choice happens to be scissors and she uses them in terrible ways, ones that were burned into my brain for days after initially watching it. The events are all capped off by a gory and disturbing final kill that is at once memorable and disgusting; therefore the film gets my nod of recognition for being epic, on a disturbing level.
The Spring Break Buffet (Piranha 3d) – The most recent of my choices, Piranha 3D is far and away from being the best horror movie anyone will encounter, but it is a whole lot of fun from beginning to end. The events all lead up to an incredibly brutal beach scene with college partygoers being attacked by the bloodthirsty piranhas. While they are trying to escape their fate at the razor sharp teeth of the fish they also cause horrible violence upon themselves in various ways and the practical effects are really something to behold.

Hello fellow horror fanatics! Ang tagal kong hindi nakabisita dito sa thread. Anyway, itong dalawang horror films na ito ang huli kong napanood at nagustuhan. Not very scary but good plot and cinematography.
They say The Cabin in the Woods is good too. Can't wait for the DVD release.
