    JD's recommendation of Martyrs, Inside and Fronteirs is probably what my first recommendations would be, too. Inside and Martyrs are probably my two favorite horror movies of... well, maybe ever. Maybe. Some other recommendations, off the top of my head:

    Black Christmas (the original)
    A Tale Of Two Sisters
    The Human Centipede
    Let The Right One In/Let Me In (they're both great)
    The Woman
    Dream Home (the Chinese movie, not the recent Daniel Craig one)
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original)
    I Saw The Devil
    Rabid (Cronenberg)
    Cold Fish
    Nightmare Detective
    Frozen
    Thirst
    The Innocents
    Shutter (the original)
    Possession (the one with Sam Neil)


    That should be enough to get you started.
    I watched Frozen and Human Centipede. Frozen was okay, wasn't really too into it. Human Centipede was just bizarre. I didn't know whether to laugh or cringe during the film. Guess neither was my type of film, thanks for the suggestions though. I'll definitely watch some of the others on that list.

    Haha! If you look up the Martyrs on Amazon they'll let you know it's frequently bought together with Inside and Frontier (s)

    Wouldn't that make a swell triple feature? I'll bring the Goobers. :D
    Whenever I am asked for recommends they are my 3 go tos. They are all French too, so it's not as coincidental as it seems.

    I watched the last of the trilogy (Frontiere), was my least favorite of the 3 but definitely held my interest and was entertaining. Thanks for the recommendations JD, hope to hear more suggestions lol.

    I think I'm gonna watch another French horror movie soon, a film called Haute Tension. Heard it's supposed to be pretty intense.

    [/quote]It's one of those things that if it comes on the telly and there's nothing else going on, say no scheduled Magic the Gathering tournaments, it might be worth watching. Or you can just explore more of Henri-Georges Clouzot's work if you haven't (Like Wages of Fear). :D[/quote]

    I absolutely intend to explore more of Clouzot's work.

    Yeah, I watched A Page of Madness, silly, I recommend it to you. :P
    You did? Well, ****, I'm glad. So ****ing good!

    There's quite a bit. Have you ever watched any of Murnau's work, say, the silent Faust or Noseferatu?
    I saw Nosferatu way way way back in the day, but have been meaning to watch it again ever since I watched Herzog's remake (which I really liked and had Isabelle Adjani in it, too!!!!). I see Kino released a nice looking box set of Murnau's stuff. Added to the wish list! Have you seen any Josef Von Sternberg stuff?

    You can or rather SHOULD. Faust is the APEX of silent film German expressionism. :D
    Anytime you feel like recommending old, creepy movies you got an ear right here.

I had no idea what I was in for since I did very little research prior to seeing it, all I knew was that it was one of the best Japanese films of 2010. This film had such a profound emotional impact of me. It was one of the darkest, morbid, and powerful movies I've seen in my entire life. The ending was sooooo amazing as well. Left me speechless. This movie is not pleasant to watch, but it's so well made, and the acting is superb. I'd recommend this film to just about anyone - it's that ****ing good.

    Okay, back to finding another horror movie to watch for tomorrow, or tonight maybe if I can't fall asleep.
    My second favorite movie from last year. DieHard, can I ask, where did you see this? Did you import a disc like I did?

    High Tension is, IMO, a great movie. Up until the end.

    I was actually trying to think of some more horror to recommend to you last night and that and the remake of The Hills Have Eyes came to mind. Both Alex Aja films.

    I thought it was well done and I enjoyed it. I have to agree with JD that the end sort of got away from the director, it was a bit over the top. But even with that it was good. It had an interesting premise: what happens when regular people all of a sudden get super powers, not all are heroes. Seeing the genesis of a a regular guy essentially become a, for lack a better term, a super villain was interesting. Also the genesis of a hero. For those who have not seen it be warned: it is shot in "Blair Witch" Style of first person single shaky camera style. Some people have commented that they have to close their eyes at times to avoid getting nauseated. I have never had a problem with that sort of thing but I must admit I was feeling a little green at times. Perhaps it was because I slightly under the weather when I saw it. But overall this was a satisfying movie.

    SPOiLER ALERT!! Dont read if you have not seen it!

    A question for those who saw it: Ok, when the girl with the bright red hair stormed out of the room and you got a split second look at the stuff in her hair did you did you immediatly think it was barf? Am I weirdo for first thinking the guy just got freaky with his, uh, load? Of course I knew what really happened a few seconds later but the dude already showed signs he was going down a dark path and he was good with his powers. My first thought was "Oh gross he went' money shot on the poor girl!" Of course I felt like a dope afterwards because they would never show that sort of thing in PG movie, but for a split second I thought they did.

    Yeah, Frontieres is definitly the lesser of the 3. Haute Tension is a real divisive flick, curious to see what you think. I liked it more than others. And I'm not a fan of The Hills remake. Not horrible, just kind of by the numbers. Have you ever seen Pontypool? It's a film I love rabidly.
