hoopsman, I think you won't find a film that scares you beginning to end. and there is no comedy that is non-stop chuckles. Plot takes planning and time and you have to let a story unfold. I know surfers prefer the big wave, but they learn to appreciate the small tides in between, too. I recommend you pick up a paperback review guide of horror movies to flip through. save money - don't get the latest one, get last years, there will still be hundreds of titles reviewed. you can get books dirt cheap at half.com section of eBay, and there are plenty of other places online but memory fails me at the moment. any way, here are a few titles you may enjoy. Please forgive the Caps letters; it's easier this way: THE ABOMINABLE DOCTOR PHIBES - AFRAID OF THE DARK - AFTER PILKINGTON - ALMOST DEAD - AMERICAN GOTHIC - ASSAULT - ASYLUM - THE ATTIC - THE BIRDS - THE BLACK CASTLE - THE BLACK CAT (1934) - BLACK SABBATH (1963) - BLACK SUNDAY - BLADE RUNNER - THE BLOOD OF THE VAMPIRE - THE BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW - BLOOD RELATIONS - THE BLUE BOY - THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL - BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA (1992) - THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) - BRIMSTONE AND TREACLE - BURN, WITCH, BURN - CABINET OF DR.CALIGARI (1919) - CASTLE OF BLOOD (1962) - THE CASTLE OF THE WALKING DEAD - CHAMBER OF HORRORS (1940) - CRY OF THE BANSHEE - CURSE OF THE DEMON (1957) - THE DAY AFTER - DEAD OF NIGHT (1945) - DR.PHIBES RISES AGAIN - THE GHOST SHIP (1943) - THE GREEN MAN - THE HAUNTED PALACE - THE HAUNTING (1963) - THE HORRIBLE DR.HICHCOCK. hoopsman, don't forget imdb.com is an excellent online movie info source. on cable TV the AMC channel often has horror nights. happy viewing, let me know when if you want more recommendations.
