Jun 29, 2012 | Posted by: Burento | Full story: www.metacritic.com

From seemingly endless Saw sequels to the needless remakes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre , Halloween and Friday the 13th , the horror film genre has more than its fair share of turkeys.

Any vampire movie that does not star Christopher Lee or Frank Langella as the vampire is merely second or third rate.

This recent stuff is merely a third rate rehashing of thier masterpieces.

Adding to that, I feel sorry for anyone who tries to act as the frankenstien monster after Karloff owned the role and achieved perfection.

I agree those old movies were masterpieces, but I'm gonna disagree with you about 3rd rate rehashing, they're a whole new take on the genre, the modern interpretasions are done from the vamp's perspective. The recent spate of hunter stories & movies are rehashed a bit, that's commercialisation.
What I find is over rehashed are the haunted, posesed house movies.

I LOVE all the old horror films, starting with 'Nosferatu'. I can never watch it enough. It amazes me that a man can look SOO horrifying with such little technology. I can't remember his name, but he rocked it!

I hate the updated 'Halloween'. The original 1978 John Carpenter is one of my faves. They kind of ruined it. I know a lot of horror fans like all the blood and guts in the new one. I just think the original is better.

I also love all the kind of B horror flicks.'Friday the 13th' rocks. About the first 3-4 sequels. After that, no dice. I loved the first 2 'Halloween's. The scenes are all SOO fake and silly now, but they were scary then.'Sleepaway Camp' is the BOMB. That Angela character is SOO messed up. Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' is classic. It's so creepy. I adore it.'Rosemary's Baby' is another favorite. Even though Mia Farrow chopped her hair off, she was magnificent in that role.

Then, there are the older ones. I love pretty much everything Boris Karloff, Vincent Price and Alfred Hitchcock did. Thanks to Hitchcock, I still get creeped by large bunches of birds. Ha! I adore James Stewart. I know he did a lot of westerns, but he was wonderful in 'Rear Window' and 'Vertigo'. Grace Kelly was so elegant and believable in 'Rear Window'. I hate that she quit acting not long after.'White Zombie' and 'Bat'(not sure what the Bat was called) were awesome Karloff films. Hilarious to see that Bat now! Lol I love the original 'House on Haunted Hill' and 'The Haunting of Hill House' too. The remakes are okay. I could watch horror films all day long.

I'm not so much into the modern ones. I'm not a gore lover. They're so realistic, it creeps me out too much.

Agreed. Like the Saw movies. I watched the first one and won't watch any others. It's so sadistic, sick and freaky. It's TOO realistic. You can just imagine that some sick-o could REALLY do something like that. I get that it's the whole purpose...to scare you that way. I'll take the old films. Real life is scary enough just as it is.

That was what I was thinking of, the Abominable Snowmen and spiders one are hysterical. The CG is rather low budget but makes it funnier still. Sort of like the claymation they did in the 70s :)
They are going to show Repo Men on Sunday night, I thought that one was pretty good but more drama than horror IMO.

I usually enjoy horror movies, even the B-rated ones.
BUT> Worst? You wanna know worst? I started watching and had to stop, a horror movie called "Human Centipede". Gross, sickening, soooo desturbing to know some human actually wrote and produced it. Worst movie EVER! The horror is real being that there was evidently a market niche for such crap, because what's even more desturbing, I hear they came out with "Human Centipede 2".

Do you really mean to ignore Bela Lugosi, and Max Schreck before him?

The Nosferatu actor was Max Schreck. His name inspired the animated "Shrek".
