Nice choice with They Live. More freaky than horrorific, but I'd count it.

My ten, no order, but, why not, alphabetical:

28 Days Later (Bringing something fresh to the zombie genre is tough to do, and yet Boyle made it seem so easy. First time aggressive "zombies" awed these peepers of mine. The zombies were also another thing. They weren't dead. "The Infected" were people trapped in mindless rage, killing people, sometimes their own family. Being a rage zombie is a really scary thought on it's own, let alone being uninfected and having to deal with and be chased by these zombie methheads. The very human storytelling of dealing with the crisis also gets some good marks.)
An American Werewolf in London (My favorite werewolf & Landis film. Landis has said that many people have asked what his inspiration for doing a werewolf comedy was and he always stated that it wasn't meant to be a comedy. It was just a "what if werewolfism was thrown into real life" and wrote the reactions and situations accordingly to how friends would talk to each other if one was cursed and had to deal with the other's ghost, amongst all the other victims one would stack up. Thought that was really interesting.)
American Psycho (So many layers to the story. The serial killing, the representation and allegory of 80's businessmanship and the yuppie culture, and a few other things that'd spoil if I say.)
Audition (Still the most "WTF" torture-porn I've seen. Mostly due to the psychological aspects. The way the story builds up to, what is relatively not as much gore candy as many torture-porn movies, this boiling point for all the characters and then to go through the unflinching camera shots of the ending's maliciousness. My eye's itchy just thinking about it.)
Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn (Can't deny the first one's awesomitude, Army of Darkness has more memorable moments, I'd say, but Evil Dead 2 just had this perfect balance between scary and funny.)
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (It's the apex of the main Friday the 13th series, IMO. SUPER ZOMBIE JASON!)
Jacob's Ladder (Tim Robbins at his best. This movie was the first to really freak me out in a long time. Can't really explain anything without giving away something vital to enjoying it. It also created the "head-shake" cam, which has been used countless other horror films. "Head-shake" cam is where a character's head shakes at a freaky, rapid rate.)
May (2002 film. I'll admit, you do need patience with this one, but pays off so well. Most of the film is a constant foreshadowing building up to the last 20 minutes. It's one big nod to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein but still manages to be its own story. A twisted ass story, I might add.)
Slither (Blob meets Night of the Creeps/Shivers. Troma with a budget FTW!)
Trick 'R Treat (Captures the spirit of Halloween in a criss-crossing anthology. What more could you ask for?)

Lot of unconventional zombies in this list.

Funny Games (1997)
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Dawn of the Dead (1978)
Ju-on
Audition
Texas Chain Saw Massacre ((1974)
Zombi 2
Halloween (1978)
28 Days Later
Jaws

No order, but Night of the Living Dead would be at the top. I will also say that the seventies were the best decade for horror films.

Ones that I wish would disappear:

Halloween (Rob Zombie) I'm gonna guess two is horrible also but I refused to see it.
Blair Witch Project
Just about any remake of any horror film except for Dawn of the Dead which if it hadn't taken place in a mall it had nothing to do with the original

That is a good movie!

Anyone seen The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane? It has Jodie Foster and Martin Sheen.

My top ten list in no particular order:

Pumpkinhead
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
(I always enjoyed the first, but this one never gets enough love)
Road Games
Return of the Living Dead

The Stepfather
Black Roses (so bad it's awesome)
Psycho II
Motel Hell
Dr. Giggles

Lamberto Bava's Demons (Co-written and Produced by Dario Argento)

I always try to list films that don't get mentioned as much as they should in other lists. I like alot of the films mentioned in everybody's lists except for the remake for 13 Ghosts(very unimpressed in that one).

I really don't consider 28 Days Later a zombie movie I think of it more as a virus movie. I understand that the box and the description about it all say "zombie" and people consider it a zombie movie, but it doesn't follow the "rules" of zombies. Plus you also get into the debate of "slow" vs "fast" zombies..Sorry I geeked it out for a moment. Wink

I think there are some pretty good remakes out there The Thing, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, My Bloody Valentine, Black Christmas and F13 but granted there are also several that were terrible NOES and Last House on the Left come to mind.

With the exception of The Thing, I've hated every movie on that list (didn't see f13) . My feeling is if you can't top the first one then why remake it. Especially when it comes to classics like Texas Chain Saw Massacre or foreign films.

It's at the point were i won't even bother with remakes anymore, but I will probably see "let me in" when it comes out on DVD just cause all of the rave reviews

Not to mention the fact that at the beginning of 28 Weeks they say that all the infected are gone because they've starved to death. Yeah, Zombies don't starve.

They're already dead! They don't need to eat, and if they don't it it's not like they just stop functioning and become "super-dead." Plus, when the infected in 28 days get catastrophically hurt (like, their legs get chopped off) they bleed to death and die. Zombies just keep on crawling.

They're fictional characters. It's ok if they don't follow everything to a T.

Preacher doesn't follow Bram Stoker's Vampire rules, but it doesn't remove the quality or significance of the character, does it?

^^ No it doesn't. I am all for bending the rules. But the virus people in 28 Days Later don't even fit the typical rules of a zombie. They have red eyes, they are not trying to eat you, they just don't keep going and going, their infection is spread instantly and they don't decay at a rapid rate. I have never seen a zombie with red eyes, they ARE trying to eat you, they never stop moving, their infection spreads at various rates and they decay at a rapid rate.

Sorry I geeked out once again. Laughing

I just see "Zombie" as a mindless monster that was a human that would crave flesh/brains/whatever.

It's like with Twilight; just because it sucks doesn't mean it isn't allowed to bend the rules. Vampires DO sparkle in that instance.

^ Exactly. Traditional zombies are actually based on Voodoo and to be under the command of something, usually someone. So Romero's is technically only a traditional zombie in pop culture and is really just another unconventional zombie. yes

I watched Fright Night tonight. Never saw it before, really liked it! Of course, the only reason I picked that one is because David Tennant's playing Peter Vincent in the remake. >.>

All I can say is that Tennant's got big shoes to fill! Don't get me wrong the 10th doctor rules, but Roddy Mcdowall did such a great job in the original it's gonna be hard topping him in my eyes. I just hope he makes the role his own. Very Happy

Went and saw Paranormal Activity 2 last night.....


Spoiler:
It was the biggest piece of shit movie. If you have seen the 1st one you have seen the 2nd one. It takes place over 18 days....that is 18 shots of the pool cleaner, kitchen/living room and baby's room. The "scary" stuff doesn't start happening until the end and even that is lame because they showed it all in the 1 millionth different trailers they had for it. shake my head shake my head
