I was just wondering if anybody knew a good, creepy(not a stupid slasher) movie that i could watch. i recently saw the top 30 scariest movies of all time, and the original wicker man caught my eye. it was free on comcast on demand, so i watched it, and i was thoroughly disappointed. it was more weird than creepy or scary, and it was like #10 or sumthin on the list.
let me know if you know a good creeeepy movie! :)

Yeah, it's not scary but it's intresting to watch lol The thing I liked about classic 1930's frankenstein is the lighting, they did a good job for being so old. :)

1991 version of "The Haunted" although after seeing it fully through I won't get scared like I did the first time watching it.

hoopsman I wish I knew what was on the top 30 list, especially what you liked. The newer slasher/blood n guts/giallo genres don't hold a torch to the old black n white creepers that you watch with the lights off. You should visit the Internet Movie Database imdb.com - pretty good source of intel for movies and actors history. I've found you can't go wrong with Vincent Price movies. Bela Lugosi was the man for early horror. A lot of good horror came from the UK, made at Hammer Studios. Children of the Damned is excellent. The Shining with Jack Nicholson - incredible. Horror Hotel is an old b&w that is a good movie with a bad title. My wife likes movies where small insects/animals mutate into gigantic proportion; they can be scary and hilarious. "Them!" is good, and Night of the Lepus is fun to watch. hoopsman, if you would, please give us an idea of what type of horror you like. My personal library of horror movies is in the thousands. I'll gladly look up some titles based on what you like: sci-fi scary, post-apocalyptic world-in-ruins, toxic terror, nature run amuck, 'b' films that are so bad they're good, foreign films, biker gang tomfoolery, etcetera, you name it. Knowing what you like makes it easier to find films that have a similar flavor or style.

To answer Stinky Britcher, i love really intense, atmospheric horror films, like the Ring or The shining(the first time i saw it). i havent seen a movie that REALLY scares the living [bleep] out of me constantly, not just in a few parts like the shining. i like really creepy movies, and slashers are ok, but i really dont like watching them unless i have nothing else to watch. So if anyone knows a good really creepy, atmospheric movie, let me know.
