|"Mommy, there's somebody here.
is that you?"
|Stanley Kubrick managed to take a Stephen King story and turn it into his own. The key to this movie is suspense with glimpses of images that evoke two words: psychological terror. Jack Torrence is the new caretaker of the Overlook Hotel.|
|The quintessential Halloween movie. Some 25 years later Michael Meyers still manages to scare viewers as the maniacal killer with a butcher knife. The theme song is enough to conjur fear in anyone. Jamie lee Curtis stars as the young women being pursued by the seemingly unstoppable killer in the ultimate stalker film. Buy the DVD|
|He brings his wife and young son, who has a peculiar talent of seeing things supernatural, to live there during the winter months. Jack's sanity begins to slip, and terrors await. Some of the most unforgettable images in film. But this film offers more than just thrills. It leaves you thinking "Wow, I gotta see that again." Read the REVIEW. Buy the DVD|
|"Suspiria" is a D'Argentino masterpiece, considered by many his best. An Italian film that suprisingly not many have seen, but among horror buffs is often named as one of the best horror movies of all time. It's stylish and surreal look of saturated colors and a powerful score provide plenty of atmosphere. When a young women joins a ballet school she realizes things aren't what they seem, and the line between perception and reality is erased in a nightmare of murder where knowing the truth means no escape. Why is there a barbed wire room in a school? We don't know, and maybe we don't want to. The switches between colors toy with the audience as the Goblin soundtrack provides the pulse. It's a film unlike any other. Watch it!

|This 1950's B-grade classic was directed by William Castle. He liked to experiment with the audience, and created "Percepto" with this film...which placed buzzers in theater chairs to give the audience a sudden "shock" during key scenes. Yeah, he was pretty twisted. Vincent Price plays a doctor who studies the effects of fear. He performs an autopsy on a deaf-mute who died of fear, she was never able to scream! And it seems her fear manifested into physical form; one freaky creature (Tingler) living on her vertebre that he removes to study...but egads, it's still alive! And it grows stronger and bigger as it senses fear. "The Tingler" is filmed in black and white, but key scenes (in order for the audience to connect to the fear) show blood stark red. This movie was made for theatering viewing. One scene has the screen turn black when the Tingler gets loose in a movie theater. The lights shut off and as audience members sit in a darkened room they hear, commotion, the projector turned off and Price shout out:
"SCREAM! SCREAM FOR YOUR LIVES! The Tingler is loose in this theater!"

|Richard Donnor had no idea just how much a devil of a film this would turn out to be. A bomb was set off in the hotel the director was in, Gregory Peck's plane struck by a bolt of lightning as was the screenwriters. Car accidents including the special effects man and his assistant - she was killed and he was injured and knocked out. When he came to he looked out the window and saw a sign that said he was 20 km from the town of OMMEN, Holland. Gregory Peck cancelled a flight at the last minute that crashed and killed all aboard.|
|An American Werewolf in London|
|One helluva-movie.Two American tourists walking through the cold dark countryside in Europe. Tra-la-la. And from the dark thick fog, lurks a terrifying creature that is about to have his nightly meal. From there you'll see the undead, werewolf transformation, and some pretty intense scenes involving victims being stalked in subways and their own back yard by the legendary werewolf. This is a great film. It's rooted in some pretty dark comedy that balances out the violence. John Landis took a well known movie monster and turned it into something really frightening. A modern classic horror. Read the REVIEW.

| Read Here for more. Gregory Peck is a father who discovers his young son, Damien, is the anti-Christ. Conflicted with doubt and duty to God, he begins to witness tragic occurances revolving around his son. Strange forces at work, protecting him. One of the many things that a film can contribute to atmosphere is the sound and score, this works. The film's lasting appeal is attributed to it's style, and perhaps a little of the mystery surrounding the making of. Were strange forces really at work? Only the devil knows.

|Stir of Echoes|
|What would happen if you could be hypnotized and open your mind to the supernatural? What if you woke up and brought your nightmares with you? Kevin Bacon gives a stirring performance of a working class guy who's put under hypnosis for fun at a party, but when he wakes up somethings different. He has startling glimpses of things. He has an unquentiable thirst, impulsive, on edge, and he can't stop digging in the yard. A fantastic ghost story that takes you where you think you've been before, by dangling the obvious cliche scare tactics in front of your face and discarding them so as to leave you uneasy. I have to admit while liking "The Sixth Sense", the same year "Stir of Echoes" came out and performance-wise and storyline I found it far more engrossing. Bacon effectively plays a family man with a growing darkside, and fear of what is beckoning him. Buy the DVD.|
|THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN|
|If bigger is better, smaller is scary as hell! Scott Carey is exposed to a mysterious radioactive fog and begins to notice something very peculiar. He's shrinking! He lives in the dollhouse for awhile, until the family cat tries to eat him.|
|"I have a message for you - you're not going to like it. Pray for death"|
|Prince of Darkness|
|Sure I could select the obvious John Carpenter films, but I decided on this one. Not because it's the best but I enjoy recommending good films often overlooked. A research team finds a mysterious cylinder in a deserted church. It's contents are old. They're all having the same dream with a strange message, something is trying to communicate with them. Something is trying to warn them. Science and religion. Good and evil. When the contents of the cylinder are unleashed it is a battle to prevent the dark lord from bringing uknown horrors into the world. Tense moments escalate in this creepy tale. It suggests an alternate universe beyond reflection that is a mirror of evil. Do you like to be scared?

|From there he shrinks so small that he is lost to everyone. The basement becomes a world to conquer. The need for food leads him on a perilous quest, a tarantula becomes his mortal enemy. Man must ponder on his place in the universe, but this nightmare has only just just begun for him. The ending of the movie leaves us with an eerie feeling of wonderment and horror. This has always been among my favorite classic sci-fi films, one worth watching again and again.

|Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)|
|George C. Scott moves into a big house after his family is killed in a car accident. He needs to be alone. It's hard you know, settling into a new city, a new job, a new life without your wife and daughter. The only problem is..he isn't alone!|
|A remake of the 1956 movie. Many like the original, somehow I prefer this one. Aliens are looking for a new home. Strange flowers are blooming - and from their wake are strange happenings.|
|People are changing, they seem the same but different. It's discovered the aliens are replicating victims as they sleep, taking over their physical form and memories. The real question soon becomes, who is real and who is not. Great cast includes Donald Sutherland, Leonard Nemoy, Brooke Adams. Jeff Goldblum, Art Hindle. The image of the injured pod that created the mutation of a banjo player and his dog has always stuck with me. In fact just the idea of it creeped me out for years. And the scream, ohh..the scream! This version was made to be more horrific. The special effects were great, and the New Yorker called it "the best movie of it's kind ever made." Buy the DVD|
|Every morning like clockwork, a banging sound on the pipes. CLANG! CLANG! CLANG! The piano begins to play when nobody is there. But that is just the beginning. He discovers a room with a childs notebook and an old rusty wheelchair. He finds out the previous owner's daughter died. But after consulting a medium he finds out the spirit in the house is not her...it's someone else. After some research he makes a connection with the Senetor. The film combines the right sound and cinematography to make it truly creepy. Often mentioned as one of the "scariest movies of all time" - it's horrific scare tactics are sure to please for those with an appreciation of this style of "chiller". Buy the DVD|

|"Listen! And understand! That terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with! It can't be reasoned with! It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!"
Before we were exposed T2 (for the new generation) with a rockin Guns-n-Roses song and a young rebellious snot kid, where Schwarzanegger became an icon of cool and one-liners, there was "Terminator". A cop from the future travels back in time from a bleak future where machines have almost made the human race extinct -in order to save a young woman. He's chasing a machine that looks human, and has orders to kill the mother of a future leader, Sarah Connor. It's dark and rough around the edges. The film ends with the idea that no matter how much they struggle against what awaits, they are only living out their destiny and changing nothing at all. The sequel (and upcoming T3) answer too many questions I'd rather have left to the imagination. Review
